Inky Blue For This Autumn * Stylo 254

Update By: dianie collado
Date: October 9, 2017


Inky Blue marks my official comeback, yayyyy!

I know it has been a while since I posted…but finally, I decided to return to do one of the things that I love the most.

Life hasn’t been easy all of the months I have been absent; I had to overcome some challenges, but I came to realize all of these challenges have only empowered me, making me a stronger, more determined person and a firm believer in that we all have what it takes to overcome ANYTHING!

Last Autumn I got pregnant for the first time in my life, and the minute I found out I was until I lost my baby I had the time of my life…

I had never experienced those feelings before, and in between worry and excitement, I was the happiest mommy to be in the whole wide world.

It just happened out of nowhere! I was not expecting it. To be honest, I thought I couldn’t have kids, and that’s why I was surprised and clueless at the same time.

I also faced some other hardships right after I lost Miranda Angélica, and at the moment I was somewhat disconcerted because I didn’t know how to deal with so much at once.

The important thing is that there is always a lesson to be learned in every encounter, therefore you must learn it, move forward and never give up!

But thanks to my family I made it through. Love them so much Also I want to give a big shout out to all those beautiful Bloggers (My Friends) who were concerned about me. Love you all

I was hesitant to share all of these, but then I thought that you never know who could be going through something similar, and they need to know that this too, like anything, shall pass…

☼—☼

What a better way to reinitiate around the same date when I first posted a Stylo back in September 2011; that’s when everything started…

This time I chose to wear Navy Blue paired with Off-White creating this Inky Blue Outfit.

Blue is a very strong color that denotes strength, power, faith, willpower, and protection, and I am not wearing it by coincidence because, in order for me to make this comeback, I certainly needed all of these attributes, and I am very grateful for it.

I am seriously a polka dot lover! So when I saw these high waisted pants for the first time in the store, I couldn’t help but to get them! I like wearing these pants with off-white and beige hues.

This time I decided to wear them with this twofer sweater I had in my closet for a few months waiting for Autumn to arrive so I could wear it.

Twofer sweaters are so easy to wear because they go perfectly with either pants or jeans, and you can also tuck them in, creating a totally different look!

Plus they are sooo comfy!  😉

Totally love the crochet design of this twofer sweater, and it actually goes perfectly with the polka dot pattern of the pants.

Embellished Sweater Dress For My Bday * Stylo 253

This year I chose to wear an embellished sweater dress for my Birthday.

I know it was definitely something totally different to the type of outfits I usually wear for my Cumple, but this year was actually really cold out and I swear to God I was not in the mood to feel cold at all…so I opted for an outfit that would keep me warm while still looking like I was on celebration mode.

Leopard Pattern For Fall And Winter *Stylo 252

Leopard pattern is one of my favorite Fall/Winter prints. I developed this sort of inclination for animal prints a few years ago, because previous to that I honestly disliked them.

I was invited to an at home wedding last weekend and I was unsure on what to wear, because this was actually my first time attending to one. So I needed a dress not to dressy but not too casual either.

I wanted to look elegant without being overdressed, and since I didn’t have time to go shopping I had no choice but to pick something from my wardrobe.

So I found this gorgeous leopard print dress which, by the way, I wore 4 years ago on a New Year’s Eve, and for that reason I wasn’t too sure about wearing the same dress again. But I truly loved the way it fitted me, so I chose to rewear it…so what!

The dress actually fits me better than 4 years ago, and that is because I have been losing weight, which I am very grateful for!

I mean, I am and will always be a curvy girl, but I just want to be able to feel happy and comfortable with my figure, besides feeling healthier of course; and I am getting there. ♥

Chambray Shirt With Jeans * Stylo 251

Wearing a chambray shirt with jeans is an easy way to create a casual Summer-Fall transitional outfit.

This is actually my first time combining two different chambray denim washes. I usually try to wear top and bottom in a similar wash, but I dared to try it this way, and I must admit I kinda liked it.

I chose to add a touch of blue and pink to still resemble summertime and also because I do love wearing colorful outfits.

Autumn is my favorite season of the year!!! I love the weather, the leaves, the beautiful colors of nature…and of course Fall fashion as well!

Fall fashion is perfect for me, because you don’t wear light clothes, but you don’t have to layer up so much either. It is the perfect balance!

I also love this Summer-Fall transition because you can wear a combination of Summer and Fall trends all in one outfit; and I honestly love that freedom.

Chambray and denim are perfect for this type of weather! And I love the fact that you can dress it down or up, depending on your style and the occasion.

Vest And Jeans Outfit * Stylo 250

Vest and jeans is a combo that a first may sound like a typical menswear outfit, but who said it can’t be adopted by a gal who wants look and feel comfortable this pre Fall season.

Autumn is just around the corner, so soon we will start wearing our booties again and we will also start putting on some sleeved light fabric tops. This look I created could be a great option for those upcoming days.

What a comfier outfit than a loose-fit blouse paired boyfriends and booties! And to add an edginess to it we can wear a dressy vest, a statement necklace and a chic envelope.
