Pop of color

Downtown Valencia and super warm weather. Temperatures have been almost like summer, and although we're already on mid-October it's only been two days ago since I wore my shorts, T-shirts and no tights dresses. People is still going to the beach, I still literally die every time I go out of classes at noon (carrying tons of things with me, as always) and I can't wait for the day my jackets and cozy sweaters get out the closet. I won't believe it when that day finally arrives.

Meanwhile, not everything feels bad. After this past summer, when I've been stuck between situations on a contrast where it was better to not worry that much about clothing but just put on your shorts, sneakers and feel the moment, feels good again to rock the city on a more feminine and chic look. This black and white skater dress had been on my wardrobe for awhile. It's one of those pieces that maybe don't claim for attention, but it's a basic and will always stay there to solve the eternal and feared question ("What to wear today?"). As it's plain color, you can mix it with different color schemes and put accessories to it. Orange is nice, isn't it?

Talking about season and mood changes, maybe here're the last pictures where you can see me with long hair! You already saw me with my new haircut here. Not too short, but easier to style so I love it.

Do you prefer plain colors? Do you have that "savior" piece on your closet too?

Style lesson at Letto Valencia

Third series of our collaboration with "El andén de Marie Jo" and some of the spaces around Place Valencia. This time we were invited to shoot at Letto where we could take some interior design inspiration on their super cozy settings full of the trendiest furniture, bed sheets, blankets and home decor items someone could never imagine. Absolutely an style lesson where fashion and interior design were combined on a super successful match!

We went for a more glamorous, ready for a night out outfit, inspired by New Year's Eve and coming Christmas celebrations (still a pair of months away but, never say never when it comes to play dress up for events!). Straight and shorter dress than our previous proposals, it's still a super comfortable and chic option for an evening or night event filled with that lace front which gives the whole piece a really delicate and elegant touch. Some accessories are needed as well and we thought a comb and statement earrings were a good shot to the look. It also matched so nicely the whole ambiance that taking this pictures was not only super easy, but also fun and very regarding. Thanks to all the crew and people who helped us take this pictures and set everything!

What are you wearing this Fall?

Refined masculinity

White shirt and my cufflinks from Colette. I think I never tried that much the masculine look before, and I'm really sorry about that because it may be the most quick, easy to do and chic style I've been wearing on a long, long time!
It all depends on the amount of "manly" essence you want to add. As I didn't want to overdo it, I just tied up my hair on a super low ballerina bun (add as many tons of hairspray and hair gel as desired) and dusted off my blue suit pants from the closet. Pearl earrings, this super cute vintage Dior monogram bag and the rhinestone cufflinks add the balance talking about accessories on this outfit. Makeup is also necessary to achieve this elegant but comfortable look!

I wore this whole look to the third and last day of our 17 Valencia Fashion Week downtown, feeling exhausted of wearing high heels and staring hours and hours watching carefully all the shows I could handle. So, heeled flats were a must to finish on a successful way those three days of craziness. Because sneakers might be the most comfortable thing to walk on, but not for me on a Fashion Week. Sneakers are for casual outfits, jeans and sports. The key is to dress according to every occasion.
