70’s Vibes in Suede

Wander With Love

This year the suede trend did a big comeback and I cannot get over it! There’s something about this soft texture that makes me feel like I’m back in the 70’s. It’s just so fun wear! I love it in dresses, tops, coats and skirts. The trick is to wear it with classic pieces, that way you balance out this style.

I recently found a new website called Chicwish where I found the most beautiful pencil skirt! The suede fabric is what drew my eye, but what did it for me was the  asymmetrical flap and self-tie bow at the waist. I love little details like that! I paired it with a simple open back bodysuit and my favorite lace up suede heels. Let me know what you think!

Living the Mermaid life

Hello my lovely readers!

         I have new and exciting goals in life… ready? I want to live, breathe and dance the mermaid life. And what exactly does that mean? Did she go crazy? all very reasonable questions.. but no, I have not. Im simply saying I want to live free and happy at the sea… the one place that always held my true happiness. Growing up my family moved every year, but no matter what different city or country we moved to we were always by the beach, my true home. With summer just around the corner all I want is to take a swim in the cool california water, have sand on my toes and live in maxi dresses and beach coverups. And hey, If I could pull off the sea shell look I would wear that too! but since I can’t, a long colorful skirt and leotard had to do <3 for now…

Its been hard shooting lately because apparently June gloom is a real thing, who knew? I sure didn’t, being from Mexico you either get tropical thunder or a sunny beautiful sky, but California has been rather grey lately… but just as I was about to give up, the sun came out! So we decided to shoot at the beach and leave the LA scene for another day. In Laguna there’s a place with beautiful arches so of course my friend and I had to pay a visit. For this look I wanted a long silhouette but full of movement. You should always have fun with the clothes you wear, so channel your inner mermaid and head out all wrapped in color and a free spirit!
