My New Summer Straw Hat


I am totally in love with my new summer straw hat courtesy of Orota!

This is such a cute and lovely straw hat perfect to protect your face from the sun whether you are at the beach or even in your backyard enjoying the hot weather.

I wore it this past 4th of July Weekend, but not to the beach. Instead I decided to pair it with a cute simple girly outfit that perfectly matched the hat.

Straw hats are very popular in the Summer. I personally love wearing them every time I go on vacation or whenever I am attending an outdoor event or activity, because not only they protect my face from the sun, but they also add an air of glamour to any simple and casual outfit.

You can wear them with a simple and casual outfit like a summer dress, a maxi dress, shorts or with your bathing suit and even add a pair of oversized mirrored sunglasses to the look.

I am sure I will be wearing this straw hat plenty of times this Summer, so be ready to see it again in way more pics all over my social media accounts.

I want to thank Orota for sending me this beautiful hat which is now my favorite summer straw hat.

I am a fan of hats and bows, so I think that is why I adore this hat so much! Plus I think the black and white design makes it even more appealing.

Loose-fit *Don’t Have To Dress Tight All The Time* Stylo 219

The loose-fit trend has been emerging little by little to the point where many garments like the boyfriend or girlfriend jeans, harem pants, oversized sweaters, among others, are now very popular.

I am one who honestly used to dislike anything loose fit, but I have also been getting into this trend little by little, and now I own many loose-fit garments.

I received this dress as a gift from Newchic.com, and I couldn’t wait to wear it! It is supposed to be a turtleneck fitted dress, but for some reason it actually fits very loose, which I love.

It is the perfect dress to create a casual and stylish look for the cold weather. I also love its midi length and that is long sleeves. The fabric is super soft and comfy.

Newchic.com is a fashion clothing online store with the latest trends at affordable prices.

I chose to create an all black comfy look and paired it with some boho western elements like the hat and the booties.

I know some people would say that I am a little too short for this look, but beyond any “fashion rules”, the most important thing is to love and feel comfortable with what you wear, and I actually do.  🙂

Casual Wear: Leggings & Cardi For Fall *Stylo 211

Casual wear emphasizes comfort and personal expression, that is why it has become one of my favorite styles for the weekend.

I think we all dress casual at some point, whether it is after work or on the weekends. I have realized I am now more inclined to wear a casual outfit than before, unless I am attending an event.

This is the outfit I wore yesterday. I got up real early to run errands and besides being exhausted, I knew that I was going to be out most of the day, therefore I wanted to wear something as comfy as PJ’s and as cozy as a robe. But since I can’t leave the house wearing neither of them, I needed to find something comfortable to wear, so I wore this cardi a family member gave me a few days ago. I sooo love wearing it because it’s so soft and slouchy…ah!

I decided to add cotton leggings, a loose-fit tee, a messenger and faux suede booties. And to add glam to the whole look, I added a black floppy hat and a dark burgundy lipstick.

Sometimes you need to give your body a break and go ahead and dress down. This doesn’t mean you have to leave your house looking bummy. You can always add some key elements to add glam to your look; that’s the key.  😉

Palazzos For Fall * Stylo 147♥

Palazzos made their official comeback in 2013 and they have been around ever since.

Palazzo Pants are super comfy and flowy garment that can be worn with either flats or heels. I really love the trend of wearing palazzos with crop tops! I feel that this combo is well balanced , and if you don’t feel comfortable wearing a crop top, you can throw on a cardigan for a nice bohemian fall look.

This is a perfect Summer/Fall transition outfit, because it has summer colors and floral patterns, as well as fall garments and accessories, like a floppy hat, a cardigan and even the palazzo pants.

I am one who doesn’t like to overdue the look with the same family colors, but I made an exception this time, and I really like the results.

Regarding the Makeup, I chose to wear sort of a smoky eye look paired with purple lips.

I chose to leave my Hair loose with natural waves.

I am wearing all of my Jewelry in silver, to match the chain of my floppy hat.

I really like this bohemian transition outfit; it is a comfy and definitely eye-catching look!

Classy Lady * Stylo 125♥

Classy Lady is how I named the Stylo for this week, and the reason why it’s because of the garments and patterns I picked to create such glam and sophisticated look.

As I say in my video tutorial, I put together garments that I had worn in previous Stylos and which I had styled totally different from what I decided to create this time.

I noticed Jumpsuits are back in style this 2014, so feel free to adopt the trend and add one to your wardrobe this season.

Floppy Hats are really trendy as well, and you can definitely wear one with a pair of jeans, a jumpsuit or a maxi dress for example.

Leopard print has become one of my favorite patterns and I think it goes so well with black!
