Cynthia Rowley Blue Dress

503

A little while ago I stepped into T.J.Maxx in search of scented candles (super cheap there) & as always I was to tempted by the possibility of finding an amazing designer piece at an incredibly low price, so I went on searching and found this lovely looking rack...It hung dresses in all summery colors in what looked like the most flattering shape possible. I headed over and picked up an orange, blue & pink dress, I looked them all over to find that they were by Cynthia Rowley (whom I adore) and they were only $30...WHAT? I ended up going with this gorgeous cobalt blue & my friend Glo from Glo's Blog coincidentally chose the same one. We decided to colaborate on this post and show all of our readers two different ways to wear the dress, head over to her blog & let her know what you think about her outfit!

Hace un tiempo fui a T.J.Maxx para comprar un velas perfumadas (son super baratas en esa tienda) como siempre que voy la tentacion fue demasiado para mi, el pensar que en alguna parte de esa tienda puedes encontrar una prenda de marca por un precio increiblemente me causo gran emocion y por lo tanto me fui en busca de algo. Al momento menos pensado vi unos vestidos en colores super alegres en un corte super alagador y los tube que "analizar". Cuando les puse mas atencion me di cuenta que era de Cynthia Rowley (quien me encanta) y solo costaban $30...QUE? Asi que elegi mi color favorito y por coincidencia mi amiga Glo de Glo's Blog compro el mismo, hoy decidimos publicar un post con el mismo vestido para mostrarles 2 manera distintas de ponerse el vestido. Visiten el blog de Glo y diganle que les parecio su pinta.

Pastel Color Blocking

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

Ummm? Yes, this girl is obsessed with color-blocking of all types, pastel, neon, bright, primary, etc... I have to say that these jeans are one of my favorite purchases of the season & when I first layed eyes one them I had not a bit of doubt, I have worn them in so many ways already & I will be sharing many more with you. Hope you don't get bored of seeing me wear them. I know that wearing colorful jeans, specially sherbet-colored jeans like these may seem intimidating, however, it isn't all that difficult...here are a few tips:

*Wear them with neutral pieces like a white cream colored tank & accesorize with jewelry in a similar color to that of the jeans.
*Wear with printed items that have a similar color palette.
*When color-blocking refer to a color wheel.
*For a slimming effect wear then with nude pumps.

Neon Color Blocking

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos



To say that I've been a bad blogger is a major understatement, I'm so sorry for totally going M.I.A. I have not been tweeting, posting or doing much other than posting the occasional photo on Instagram. Reason for my absence, I've been very busy with school and such, also I've been busy, listening to....way too much One Direction (what?). Acknowledging the problem is the first step, right?


I've been wanting a pair of linen pants for such a long time & was thrilled to find these at al local boutique for under 20 bucks. They're so much lighter than jeans which is great for the summer heat, using the white as a canvas I decided to color-block like a freak & I loved it.

Spanish
Decir que he sido una pesima bloguera seria quedarse corto! Perdonenme por haber estado tan ausente, he dejado de usar twitter y lo unico que he medio hecho es poner una que otra fotito en Instagram. La razon de mi ausencia: he estado super ocupada con la universidad y otras cositas, cositas como el hecho de que he estado escuchando demasiada musica de One Direction (no me juzguen!). Por ahi dicen que admitir el problema es el primero paso...verdad?

Desde hace mucho tiempo llevo buscando un par de pantalones blancos ligeros como los que se usan con guayaberas Y cuando los encontre por menos de 20 dolares casi me da algo. Son mucho mas livianos que un par de jeans blancos, lo cual es genial durante el verano. Decidi usar el color blanco como la base de este outfit y usando mi tendencia favorita (color-blocking) combine mis colores favoritos.

*You can find similar pants at Old Navy & GAP*

Interim Photographer, Things, etc...

Photobucket Pictures, Images and PhotosTruth be told, I hate not being able to post everyday or at least a few times within the week. There are times when I totally disregard outfit photos because I'm just not happy with their quality, however, rather than abandoning you & Maria Camila's Closet, I decided to revaluate some of the photos my little nephew (12) took of me during my family's visit to LV, the kid was like in love with photography & being a legitimate "blog photographer". He didn't do half bad, right?




SPANISH

La verdad es que detesto no poder publicar articulos todos los dias o por lo menos de manera frecuente, hay veces que borro ciertas fotos porque no me gusta su calidad. Sin embargo esta semana reevalué unas fotos desechadas las cuales tomó mi sobrinito de 12 años durante su visita a Las Vegas (no es ni mal fotografo y le encato ser un "fotografo bloguero")

Coral Jeans

Colored jeans,
You're like sunshine on my legs.
You're as fun as painting Easter eggs.

You go with neutral tees & all kinds of prints.
I need a pair in mint.

You make color-blocking an easy little thing.
You're the perfect hint of Spring.

I'm so in love with colorful pants & I wanted to dedicate a special bit of text to my love for them.I'm by no means a poet [as you can tell] but I want to surprise you and myself every time I publish a new post, which is why I tried to write a poem/ode/IDK. I hope you enjoyed it. I promise next time I try a new writing style, I will not stay awake for 30 hours straight prior to doing so. I'm also aware that curing my slight insomnia will allow me to produce better posts.

P.S. I guess we'll find out if I wrote this or was just dreaming I did.

Vintage & Classic

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos Achieving a stylish look involves so many elements, such as, accessorizing, proportion, and more. I think it's so easy for girls to get caught up in one look or only shopping at one store, which I can say I'm a little guilty of. It's also so important to find pieces with a history or emotional value, they make any outfit interesting & most importantly special. Feeling special in what you're wearing makes you radiate & that's why finding pieces at thrift store & vintage shops is something I'd recommend to every single one of you. I came across this gem of a blazer a long time ago, due to some alteration & dry cleaning issues I was only able to wear it on an unexpectedly cold day. As I wore it I wondered, is it vintage?, who did it belong to? And such. That's the only thing I dislike about thrift shopping, I'm never really certain about the history of a piece but when its this gorgeous...I don't really care.

Zara Floral Pants

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

A pair of floral pants has been on my wishslist since December/January, I searched high and low for a pair I could fall in love with and had no luck. One day a saying I've heard plenty of times came true for a pair of floral pants and I; they say you'll find what you've been looking for when you least expect it. On an unplanned visit to The Fashion Show mall I walked into Zara and there they were, there was no hesitation, my perfect pair of floral pants. This is the 4th time I have worn them since February and they're the reason I've now become a huge fan of Zara. I've also shot outfit photos with them 4 times and have had no luck translating their beauty into photographs, I think these pictures come close to being the perfect explanation of what they're like in real life, I wish you could see how pretty & springy the colors in the print are. Thanks for visiting and please let me know what you think in the comments.
