The playground for my creativity

The chunky cozy sweater is making an appearance once again, this time topped with a toffee colored beanie. Not kidding! That was the color description when I bought it. It's a lovely tone and it goes great with white blonde hair.

So ever since Christmas I've been on an itch to continue editing my home. It's not 100 percent where I want it,  nor do I think it will be any time soon. But when is it, really?
Every time I decorate a spot in the house I start to talk about my future visions, to what my husband says:

-"There's more? I thought we were done with decorating"..., am I right?

My house is like the playground for my creativity. Just like putting an outfit together, I really love reinventing a place/room by meshing ideas, thus making a place enjoyable to the eye.
When I was younger and living in my grandparents house I would spend almost every Saturday cleaning and rearranging the furniture in my bedroom. I loved that sense of accomplishment of walking into my bedroom and feeling like I had entered a completely new room.
Redecorating and rearranging is refreshing indeed.

Soon I will share on the blog a little bit of the new edits in my home. It's been a while since I've done a home decor post. What do you think?

Travel Fund

.20 .20 .20 .20 .20 .20 .20 .20 .20

skirt: Free People | boots: Seychelles | pullover sweater: Urban Outfitters | Necklace: Premier Designs

Chunky sweater + mini skirts + ankle (high shaft) boots. I have found a new combo to add to my style book. Although I must admit you need the right weather because this sweater sure keeps you warm, at least in Florida winters. Ive yet to try it up north. 

This  past weekend Florida embraced the coldest day of this winter. And notice I said embraced, because I definitely did. 
The crisp air was all sorts of wonderful and, no worries, I was not wearing this skirt. Otherwise I probably would've frozen in the 40 degree weather. 

Days like that really make me want to travel up north. I need to start a travel fund. - Ready? Go!

Sheer and sequins

blouse + cami: Free People | high waist jeans: Dstld | boots: Seychelles 

I loved this top and its sequin detail when I saw it on the Free People December catalog, but once I noticed it was sheer I figured it would be hard finding a top to wear under. I disregarded it, until I went to my local FP store and tried it on with this mustard cami. 
You just never know how well something looks, feels and fits until you try it on [Being an online shopper has a few disadvantages].
This top twirls, moves beautifully and dresses up your favorite jeans. Yes! If you haven't noticed, my black jeans are my favorite. 

It's been nice and cold around here but not complaining a bit, I've been loving it and taking advantage of it because it's Florida, and it tends to go into its sudden bizarre changes. 

Today is in the 70's, with rain and we may even get tornado watches?!! Going into panic-attack-mode. I don't like that kind of weather.
The older I get, the more scared of everything I become... I can't even watch a scary movie anymore.

Is this part of getting old?

Just a little bit of sunshine

Nb Nb Nb Nb Nb Nb Nb

high waist jeans: DSTLD | boots: Seychelles | top: Urban Outfitters

It sure has been cloudy around here, and I think I miss the sun. Well, do I? I just never thought I would say that.

Cloudy weather was part of growing up in Lima, Peru. We would barely see the sun unless it was summer. It was rare seeing the rays knocking at your window sill during the winter months.
Hence cloudy skies have always been a favorite. I'm all about cool tones, something about its calming, moody vibes are refreshing to me.

Although now I don't mind it as much, I was never a fan of warm tones. Give me color pencils and I would paint you a winter morning or evening sky (purples + blues + violets + grays) If you told me to paint a sunset full of oranges, yellows, reds, I would cringe at the thought.

When I moved to the sunshine state I liked the sun until I didn't. And a lot had to do with the heat lasting beyond summer.
Finally we are getting nice cool temperatures here, but I wish rain wasn't accompanying it 70 percent of the time. So just a little bit of sunshine wouldn't hurt.

P.S. This boots have me on cloud 9. High shaft + dark gray + pointy toe. My favorite.

After a long wait a cold front has finally come our way... 2016 is off to a great start.

New years' day I cleaned the whole house, stored away all Christmas decor, and waved our Christmas tree goodbye.
It all sure resulted in some serious need-to-lie-down back pain, but regardless it felt good to get the whole house cleaned and back to self. .

2015 was great but I'm excited to see what this new year holds. Here's to another year on the blog, filled with outfits + adventures + trips + home decor + more pictures of the husband + and life.

Let's do it!

Christmas Aftermath

tunic dress + necklace: Free People | jeans: Dstld | boots: Madewell

The week before Christmas the hubs, some friends and I embarked on an adventure to watch the new Star Wars, which was AMAZING! [Don't worry I won't spoil it for you]. Also my husband now wants a BB8... I'm not surprised.

This tunic/dress is a new favorite, and oh so comfortable. The color reminds me of Rey's outfit in Star Wars. The necklace is a new addition to the necklace quiver and dresses up this long tee-dress so well.

So I'm writing this post on the Christmas aftermath, while sipping on some freshly brewed coffee from my new chemex. Thank you grandma! It tastes like coffee in heaven.


We had a lovely Christmas and a beautiful Christmas' Eve at my church. I had the privilege of using the chalk writing skills I've used in so many Christmas presents for the stage's backdrop this year. It really came out beautifully (not bias at all). But most importantly it was a beautiful service, singing in unison with our brothers and sisters in Christ, celebrating Jesus's birth.
