Valencia, last 29th April at Mercado de Tapinería. You know I'm always in vogue on what's happening around in my city: I always love to be involved on presentations and events, specially if there are young designers and creatives coming to show their newest pieces and ideas. It's incredible how many things happen on a city like Valencia if you're careful and hear for the right signals. There's fashion and great design on every corner here, both coming from traditional ways and their rich silk patterns or the freshest, sometimes crazy creations of local fashion and art students. I'm happy to know that I live in a city where being creative and having tons of ideas is awarded, and that you can walk into an event or presentation like this promoted by my friends at Chapelle Magazine & Mercado de Tapinería (which is a really cool place downtown where emerging, limited markets and stores or festivals happen some days per month) to get a glimpse of the newest trends.

Designers from Valencia and around were invited to take part into this presentation of the Special for Men #4 issue, "We can be kings" filled with music and snacks, a nice ambient and activities like a performance, the projection of a fashion film and a catwalk involving the pieces of VURE, Sebastian Chavarriaga, Móler, BlueBlue Chihuahua among others.

As always, it's nice to take part into this events to meet new people who loves what you love. Be involved!

28th, 29th, 30th April. If you've been around for awhile, you might know we've been totally absorbed and super stressed for the last 6 months thanks to the organization and stuff around the Architecture's School culture festival (best known as ETSA·TOPIA), which emerged last year from a group of students, and which celebrated its second edition past week. The festival is not only about architecture, but also about cooperation between students, different associations and groups from Valencia and even other cities in Spain; about workshops and different activities as conversations, "Pecha Kucha" presentations or ephemeral architecture at the Polytechnic University campus. All filled with beer, snacks, the best mood and best young architects gang EVER.
The festival is all about having fun and make our School come back to life for some days. Because life (and architecture) is more than just studying and non-stop work!
This year's theme was "Plan B", which is about different options and perspectives, talking about both work and life. As future architects, we must be very conscious of our surroundings, the huge amount of design knowledge and ideation capabilities we have thanks to our studies and this edition was about all that: step out of our comfort zones and discover how many different paths we can take.

I had the chance to share these days involved into staff duties, which was exhausting but very fulfilling and fun! We were a bunch of about 50 people running up and down the whole building, dressed with those black & black T-shirts, helping with the snacks or the assembly of all the audiovisuals stuff among other things. It's been great, because this is the kind of things which helps you know how teamwork actually works, or how to manage a last-minute crisis. It's been a total change of view for me and a 360 degree experience to take part into all this. You could feel those really good vibes, that illusion just by stepping into the School, and I can tell those feelings are still around although the festival has already ended. That's the fun thing about it: the countdown for next year's ETSA·TOPIA has already started.

Vintage in violet

I get asked all the time how being quite a shy girl I have the guts of posing in front of a camera and just share with the world what I wear. Even if it's a bit weird, old-fashioned or just different from what is expected on a 22 year old girl. You know, sometimes a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do, and starting this blog was a way not only to get off most of my shyness, but also try to give a boost of self-confidence to all who didn't think they would be brave enough, not only to go outside rocking their unique looks, but also to prove them they could be brave enough to do whatever they wanted. To encourage everyone to go out of their boxes and show themselves to the world. If I could do it, sure anyone could do it.

So, time to wear this long-forgotten vintage ruffle dress that was kept on my wardrobe for years until now. Classy and full of vintage vibes, it was a total challenge to pair it with something modern enough to not look like granny but which suited it and helped the whole outfit to be in the same page. I finally took this geometric pastel bomber from H&M and the Bimba & Lola pink sunnies to add some "pink lady" vibes. I think it turned out pretty interesting and fun!

If you've been following my steps through social media (particularly Instagram) and around here, you might know we're in the middle of the Architecture School festival organization this coming week (we've been working a lot for the past 6 months to get it all arranged and running nicely!). Sort of a Coachella for Architecture students, architects and everyone who'd like to join around Valencia, which is called ETSA·TOPIA and will be tons of fun for sure. I'm so excited! It's been hard to combine everything from homework, to collaborations and work I'm currently involved at, and of course the festival details where I've been also collaborating. I've had my up and downs during this last weeks and especially these last days, but now I'm back with all the energy in the world to keep moving!

Weird weather and the end of holidays. Looks like it's been only a couple of days since I got off from College to enjoy our Fallas & Easter holidays and I already came back school. So sad. Hope you've had a bunch of amazing and relaxing days, as I feel like I've done nothing at all and I still have tons of pending duties and work to do (but my batteries are 100% full again!). But I am full of positive feelings and thoughts, because there's only a few months to Summer holidays and I will be ending this 4th year at A. School!

One of the things I've been doing these past holidays is taking advance of the super nice, lovely weather we've been having in Valencia! I've been doing countless hours of city stroll and some jogging, I've had the chance to finally put some order into my room-of-chaos while windows were open and I could feel fresh air and light around, and I also did some view photo shooting downtown for a couple of class tasks. Now weather is going nuts again and looks like I will be taking the bus every morning to College involved in rain and cold air, which is not very good. I already stored all my winter clothing! #disaster
Pray for me so I won't be carrying any giant cardboard scale model soon. Which is not fun while it's windy and rainy outside. Not at all, believe me.

So, in the meanwhile of submitting a pair of contest entries I've been working on (it's super exciting to work on those, specially if you're surrounded with lovely and the funniest workmates which buy you snacks and food while working) and start studying hard for finals (which are, like, always around) we took this pictures downtown some days ago, wearing the brightest shade of hot pink with this Coach biker jacket, pairing it with the Carolina Herrera "Andy Seven bag" and balancing this colorfulness with some black and white.

I don't know about you, but Valencia is a city where Spring and Autumn are pretty nonexistent seasons.  In fact, most Mediterranean cities are alike, changing from the humid, coldest winters to the hottest summers on a blink of an eye. So, my wardrobe usually gets from cozy, wool sweaters and knitted scarves to shorts, light dresses and tank tops in just a few days... More or less.

However, we do have some days when the temperature is not high enough but it feels really good to be on the outside. This weather feels like strolling around the city and start wondering about eating ice-cream or sunbathing. So, that's why I feel interesting to do a little #recap and sort of #throwback on the blog to show you 7 Spring outfit ideas you can try RIGHT NOW, because they're easy peasy, pretty basic on the foundations and super chic.

Let's get started then!
