Minimal for the warm

Warmest September of all. I think this is the first Summer I've ever lived almost entirely at the city. Now that this Summer I had my internship at the studio, I spent big part of July and August here, which hasn't been as terrible as I firstly thought. My Summers are usually filled with beachtown vibes and ocean breeze almost everyday, so I thought I would die of heat wave at the city. None of that happened and I even lived a pretty fresh Summer, but then all those warm temperatures we haven't suffered in all the season have come on the warmest, most horrible September in Valencia I'm able to remember. Now that I started going to classes again, the only thing I can be glad of is having air conditioner machines at College.
Clothing also turned tricky, as I could manage pretty well on my fresh, comfortable, professional office look with normal temperatures around, but now it just turned impossible: it's difficult to look professional and neat from 8 a.m. to 15 p.m. running up and down the whole School building while carrying a huge backpack and dealing with hot temperatures as soon as you step your foot out the Hall's door. Just taking the bus in the morning, when the sun is still down and it's a bit cooler, feels like running a marathon.

When going to "school", I like to look as professional and serious as possible, but always keeping my own touch which is a bit of vintage, a bit classy and a bit minimal. Altogether. I go there to study, but I also get the chance to go to conferences, meetings and some events which leads you to look the best possible, and also, let's face that every profession and job related to design requires a certain aesthetics. I don't know, it's just like there's a whole atmosphere around which pushes me to look adult and reliable, both as a person and a soon-to-be architect. That's where minimal and multifunctional pieces like this zig-zag, wrap white top I can put on different positions (it's super cool! When it's unwrapped it's like a long piece of elastic, neoprene-kind-of fabric which its straps you can wear crossed or uncrossed, or laced at the back or the front) and this culottes which look like a skirt but actually aren't. Those are currently my go-to pieces, as they're both super versatile, professional looking, fresh and comfy all at the same time!

Paired with my high ponytail, the only thing I'm wishing for is that this 2.0 Summer ends soon!

The cropped top of positiveness

I haven't been into showing too much skin for years. I've been always a very shy girl, who didn't like to feel observed or target of any kind of comments, and wearing a cropped top or even a short meant to me the world. I consider my body to be total average, and it always has been: I'm not tall at all but enough to be taller than most of my friends; I have large shoulders thanks to seven years of swimming classes and my hips are what some might consider as Latina shaped. I even have put on some weight since I left fencing practises a year ago, and daily habits of being seated for great part of the day plus studying quite a though career contributed to that. But it's OK because I feel it that way!
For years I wasn't capable of wearing a top shorter than usual. I just kept hidden in my long brunette hair and whoever said something kind or unkind to me, I just nodded shyly my head.

But now, even I have put on a bit of weight I want to get rid of, and although I keep being a little shy, I don't care at all and I feel capable of wearing whatever I want to. I feel confident enough to wear what I want to and I feel as a superwoman every time I stomp the streets with my heels. To be positive about your body and empowered as a woman is a value I always try to teach any of my friends, but especially the youngest. And I hope you are learning to empower yourselves too!

So. This black crop top is one of those pieces I feel super confident wearing on! It's not very short but still manages to be considered as a crop top, and it's made of a fabric which is not too light nor too thick, so maybe I'll be wearing it in winter with high waisted jeans or something. It's one of those pieces of clothing which go well with almost everything, and pairing it with the suitable bottom parts and accessories makes it able to wear it for the everyday or a more formal event. One of those which I always tell you to invest on!

What about you? Do you also have any of those pieces of clothing which makes you feel super confident and comfortable on?

Bimba y Lola black dress - Late update

I'm currently living my first Summer ever at the city. As some of you might know, I haven't been really around here due to work. Yep! After distributing my CV and forms all over the place, I was called last-hour for an internship at an architecture office here in Valencia (already told you about that in last post), cancelling all the possible plans and things I had in mind for holidays. But it's OK! Doing a two-month internship on a studio is something I've been looking forward this last year, and I find it very suitable and appropriate for this stage of my career to keep learning and take my head out of Architecture School a little bit when it comes to real world. So, I'm not only learning tons of things everyday but also having a great time (although I really, really hate to get up early every day).

That being said. Spending my weeks at the city and only weekend time at beach town has allowed me to redistribute my routines and schedules on a more efficient way. Week is for work, weekend for leisure. Although I've spent some days with terrible headaches, sleeping endless naps in the afternoon until early evening once I'm at home (life happens when you spend your mornings in front of a black computer screen), I've started fulfilling my schedules and marking down pending issues on my TO-DO lists. Including that article I have to finish before September 5th for a Conference. At least I've started writing. Lovely, isn't it?
Meanwhile, I spend my weekends doing SUP surf (sure you've seen my first steps at Instagram) and being a master couch potato when I'm not spending endless mornings at the swimmingpool. Then, once again Monday will come and I'll be getting up early for work.

So, what is your Summer being like? Are you on couch potato mode as well?

Summer is usually a synonym of holidays. But not this year for me! I've been keeping really, really busy lately as my classes ended pretty late (only a week ago, which is super rare taking into consideration last year I finished classes and exams almost June 10th) and I've been called to work as intern on a local architecture studio!
Everything has been pretty rushed; I had to cancel plans and a trip as I was called only three or four days ago, and I'm not sure I'll even put a feet on the sand this year, but... It's exciting to be finally working on something I'm studying and working hard everyday on. I'm looking forward on giving the best of me and learn as much as possible these coming months, and hopefully, also apply the gained knowledge to fashion and share it on blog posts for you all.

It's fun because I never had the chance to really dress for work, but now I have the opportunity to. It's a total challenge for me, as I love wearing bright colors and somehow risky pieces which wouldn't be suitable for an office work on a pretty formal ambient (not even talking about ground and site visits, which I hope I can take part on soon). Somehow it's fun at the Architecture School, where everybody knows that I like to show my personality with clothes and use fashion as a tool to express myself; even if they all wear black, greys and neutrals. But this is kind of different. So, I hope I can learn as much as I'm able to, not only talking about architecture and paperwork, but also how to behave in a professional environment. (Tips appreciated!)

I was also planning to start a very special project related to fashion and architecture, talking about interior design, catwalks configurations and window dressing among others. These two passions that I have and that share so many aspects. But now that I'm with the internship, I'm not really sure how much time I'll left to that! I will let you know, as always, and although I might be not around here a lot, you know you can always keep in touch with me through social channels! Say hi to me at Twitter and Instagram.

Behind the design: Anastasia - EcoThiQue

Anastasia - EcoThiQue. Sometimes it truly feels like the Universe aligns to bring you the most unexpected experiences. As I love getting involved on every project and every new idea, both related to personal to professional-related fields, I was looking for a new way to get involved into something exciting when I found about Workkola. Workkola is a brand new Spanish-based startup which aims to connect College students with startups related to their educational field or interest. The startup chosen by the student gives him a task to accomplish inside the company; offering in return a recommendation at LinkedIn, a letter of recommendation or even the possibility to enroll the startup as part of the team.

So, that's how I discovered today's main character here at the "Behind the Design" section at the blog. Anastasia - EcoThiQue is a Colombian based company created in the wake of two truly laudable goals: to make something profitable out of tons of textile waste (T-shirt collars, wrong-dyed fabrics and textile leftovers which is a real problem) and to help a community of mothers in charge of disabled child. Did you know that more than 32,5kg of textile is wasted per person, a year? And that more than a 48% of it might be reusable for good?

I got the chance to talk with María del Mar, Anastasia's CEO and founder and have a glimpse of the hard work they do everyday. Anastasia - EcoThiQue helps those mothers by including them at their production chain of handcrafted clutches, handbags and accessories made out of textile leftovers, which ends on an unique and colorful product. A fashion company is much more than catwalks and great design: there's a lot of management, talks and meetings with producers, with the community in this particular case, with future stockists and vendors... Being a contributor helped me have a little look on how hard it is to coordinate everything and everyone as an orchestra director, to obtain a final product to sell, which has to have an impact on the public to keep growing.
Anastasia has also worked hard on keeping a lovely and very attractive image on their main social network which is their Instagram official account , full of colorful images featuring artists and fashion bloggers carrying their handbags on unique photomontages.
