Tying The Knot * Stylo 201


If you are looking to wear your peplum top this Fall, a unique and stylish way to do it would be throwing a tee over it and “tying the knot” in the front.

Peplum tops are not so much in style like a couple of years ago, but you can still reinvent it by wearing it this way.

You just have to make sure you create contrast between both tops by wearing them in different colors or patterns.

This could be a great option for a casual street look or for a back to school outfit.

I personally wore it last night to go out to dinner with hubby. I wanted a comfy outfit, plus it was a great way to layering my clothes, because it was a bit breezy last night.

I also created a light and soft makeup and left my hair loose.

This is the kind of outfit that is perfect for those days when you don’t want to dress up too much, but do want to look unique and stylish.

It is also a great way to recycle your clothes, always looking different.

Bright Yellow * Stylo 189♥

Bright Yellow is definitely in my wardrobe this Summer!

I was never into yellow before, but somehow, all of a sudden, I am big time!

Same thing happened with fringe! I am now inexplicably into fringe…so what a great surprise when I found this lace top with fringe at H&M!

I think yellow is the perfect color for Summer, and I loved how the whole look came out, by pairing it with other summery colors like mint green and pink.

I had to run errands and was going shopping on early afternoon Saturday, then I was going to go out to dinner. I knew I wasn’t going to have time to change clothes, so I came up with this Stylo, where I was able to change it up a little bit.

Since I needed a comfy and practical outfit, I chose to wear loafers and a hat, as well as a shopper bag where I could fit all of my coupons and offers. 😉 😉 😉

I matched the shoes with the hat, by wearing both in a natural color, and wore my black shopper bag to add depth.

Then to go out to dinner, all I did was take off the hat; replace my loafers for my fave pair of zebra pumps; add a mint green statement necklace and retouch my lipstick Pink Pigeon from MAC, of course!

I loved the whole idea of creating two outfits in one…I think I am going to do this more often.  😉

Blue Orange Combo * Stylo 188♥

A Blue Orange combination is super summery, energetic and definitely very eye-catching.

Comfy looks have become my favorites for Summer. I am loving creating casual summer outfits that are perfect for basically any day outing, or even an evening casual look.

I wore this outfit on Saturday, but slightly different during the day. I had an appointment with a client to go shopping all day, so I wore loafers and a bigger bag. Then after that, I went to dinner and added these minty blue pumps and orange clutch. And of course I added my MAC lipstick: Morange.

I wanted to add different shades of blue, from my jeans to shoes and even my nails.

I also added different shades of orange, like my colorblock shirt, my clutch and lipstick.

I truly love pairing loose fit tops with skinny jeans. I believe they are the perfect summer casual combination.

Double Denim * Stylo 182♥

Double Denim is what I chose to wear this weekend. After an incredible trip to Hawaii I am still on vacation mode and very tired as well, therefore I want to dress comfortable but always stylish.

I chose to wear my favorite pair of distressed jeans along with a comfy tee and a denim jacket.

I decided to wear this pair of eye-catching loafers, giving the look sort of a chic-classic air.

I also added this purplish bow bag for two reasons: to add color to the outfit and to also maintain a girly look.

Casual looks are the best for those days when you feel you just want to relax still looking cute and stylish. That’s why I added the loafers and the bow bag, to give the look that chic twist.

To be honest, I didn’t feel like doing my hair either, so I put it up on a messy bun and created it a soft neutral Makeup with a pop of pink/purple lipstick and also a pop of green with this awesome Wet’N’ Wild eyeliner!!! I LOVE ITTT! ♥  😉

I also went light on the Jewelry, so I am just wearing the basics.

As you can see, I am posing with my cutie Eva María who wanted to come out in the pic LOL 😆 . Me and her were ready to enjoy a lovely afternoon 😉

Plaid Pattern * Stylo 163♥

Adding some plaid pattern to your outfit could definitely turn it into a fun, bold and eye-catching one.

I have been wanting a comfy oversized plaid shirt for the longest… I really wanted a long flannel one, and I finally got it doing my Cyber Monday shopping at EXPRESS!

So you can just imaging how excited I was when I got my package in the mail 😉

I decided to wear it this weekend while running my errands. I had so much to do and I really wanted to wear a comfy outfit while I was running around in this cold weather.

I chose to pair it with winter leggings in a teal color, along with brown buckled booties and my denim/faux fur bag. I also added a long owl gold necklace with the matching earrings, both part of my jewelry collection.

I left my hair loose and for the Makeup, I wore neutral eyeshadows paired with a lovely soft brown lipstick.

If you are looking for a super comfy and stylish look, this would definitely be a great option!
