Color Pop * Stylo 231


Adding a color pop to your Spring/Summer outfit could certainly transform a regular outfit into a fashionable and eye-catching one!

Think about it: A monochrome look is definitely super chic and fashion. But if you also want to turn it into a lovely spring look all you need to do is add a color pop garment or accessory; perhaps the shoes, the bag, the top, the skirt, or even the lipstick! Because creating a look is just not about the outfit, but implies everything from head to toe!

In my case, I decided to make my skirt the color pop item of the entire look.

I created this look to attend a baby shower last weekend. Since it is still cold outside, I thought that pairing a sweater with a pleated midi skirt would definitely be appropriate for the weather, as well as the season.

And I couldn’t have made a better choice, because the sweater kept me warm and the pleated midi skirt made me look very elegant.

Would you wear this combo? Or would you wear it differently?

My NYE Outfit * Stylo 218

peplum top, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Eve outfit, midi skirt, New York & Company, Thalia Sodi, New Years

My NYE outfit for this year is totally different from my previous ones, since I usually wear a dress.

This time I chose to pair a red midi skirt with a black peplum top. The skirt is from New York & Company and I accidentally found it while I was doing my Christmas shopping.

There was only one left and it was an XS, but I decided to buy it anyway, and thank God I did, because it finally fits me!  🙂

The same thing happened with the top; I found it at Macy’s and it is also an XS.

I must admit that I am not a fan of wearing black and red, but this time I decided to take the challenge and try to make it work for me. So I added gold accents and created it a smoky eyes and nude lips Makeup; I think I did a pretty good job on owning this look.

I love, love the length of the skirt and also the split in the back.

The peplum top goes perfect with the skirt, because both styles combined together remarkably flatter my figure.

Summer Colors * Stylo 197♥

This past weekend was the birthday party of one of my fave cousins. The birthday party  turned into a beautiful family gathering, and I had such a great time that I will forever remember this weekend.

I chose to wear summer colors. The party started early in the day and I wanted to wear something comfortable and appropriate to the occasion, but at the same time I wanted to look stylish.

I chose to wear wedges because the party was outdoors. The high waist midi skirt and crop top combo was perfect!

My Makeup was subtle and not heavy at all. It was 90º degrees outside and I wanted to make sure it didn’t melt.

I also added a pair of sunnies which made the look even more glamorous.

Vintage Love – My Vday Look * Stylo 173♥

Vintage Love is how I chose to name this year’s Valentine’s Day look. I must confess that I was really excited to wear this gorgeous high waist midi skirt I bought from EXPRESS.

At first, I was going to wear it with a white basic tee, but I changed my mind and opted for this silky black and white striped blouse I own for quite a while now.

I also decided to incorporate my zebra shoes and also add this purple handmade clutch my best friend’s mother made and sent to me directly from Dominican Republic.

To complete the look I added pink stud earrings and a vintage bracelet, part of my own Jewelry Collection.

I put my hair to the side and regarding the Makeup, I chose to pair black cat eyes with neutral eye shadows and a light pink lipstick.

I am totally in love with this look! I am a vintage lover and I think that’s why I love it so much  😉

Pink And Black: My Midi Sheer Panel Skirt * Stylo 144♥

 

Pink and Black is one of my favorite combinations, because I am a pink lover and I also love wearing black.

I have been wanting to adopt the sheer panel trend for the longest, and I finally did by wearing this gorgeous midi skirt from EXPRESS.

I couldn’t resist myself from getting this skirt as soon as I saw it. I wanted to create a casual chic look, so I didn’t want to wear a dressy top. I was looking for something more fresh and comfy, so I opted for this sequined tank in light pink, also from EXPRESS.

I added silver and black accessories with a bit of punk rock influence, to give the look a twist, creating an edgy and unique one.

I consider this Stylo a total success, since I have achieved the look I really wanted to create.
