‘Tis the Season to Wear Red

¡Si! Red is my favorite color. I’m sure you’ve noticed it on the blog and in how I dress. I have quite a few red pieces ranging from bags to shoes, dresses, belts, jackets, scarves and of course red lipstick.

I always like adding color to my outfits and especially in the winter I find red just brightens you up. Before heading out on Saturday morning, I purposely chose this red FRAAS scarf that was gifted to me to go with my plaid H&M coat to give it a kick and applied red lips.

The scarf itself has two different designs, but I like to use the solid red side out because it demands more attention.  The insanely cold day made me feel festive and besides, I was on my way to Periwinkle Boutique in Shirlington to take a few snaps for their upcoming Holiday Lookbook. Red was an obvious choice!

On the drive over, I started thinking about what they would want me to wear — you never know what looks you are going to be asked to model, and I always just wish it fits right and that it’s somewhat my style.

When I got to the boutique and was taken to the changing room, I gasped with delight when I saw that I would be wearing this…

A RED dress!

Seriously, it was perfect. And if fit great too — how did they know?! I felt so natural in red which made it easier to show off the outfit and of course, get into the festive spirit.

Wearing these two pieces officially marks the beginning of the RED season for me! And if this isn’t enough, check out my top 10 RED Mickey and Minnie Mouse must have items for your baby from the Disney Store.

How about you, are you ready for red?

Go on, go RED!

Welcome to my first ever DIY post! I’m really proud of this because after realizing that I don’t do much else other than write, photograph and make videos, I needed a hobby — another creative outlet that I could enjoy and have on-going projects for myself. After coming to terms with the fact that we are not going to have new or pretty furniture anytime soon, I thought, “Hey, I can fix these up!” As a child my mom restored some {Read More}

Mourning the Loss of My Shoes After Pregnancy

Take a moment, relax, breathe and close your eyes. Picture opening your closet and seeing your shoes lined up in front of you. See them? All colors and styles. Now, image taking every pair and throwing them away in a big black garbage bag never to grace your feet ever again. Cruel, right? Who would do such a thing?! Let me back up. Shoes. Zápatos. Kicks. No matter how gordita I got, or when my jeans didn’t fit, or my jacket wouldn’t close, {Read More}
