Blast From The Past

Image
I will take vintage anytime... During my shopping career (yes, I call it that LOL) I have learned to appreciate the beauty of vintage.  There is something fascinating not knowing what you will find once you enter the store.  I have found a few pieces I cherish, but my favorite at the moment is this Burberry blazer I got at Vintage On First.  A beautiful store in Hoboken, NJ that carries some amazing pieces. I immediately knew how I was going to wear this a tribute to that little girl who was always best dressed at school and learned the power of a great blazer at 13 years old.  This was it!  If you grew up in the 90's you know this type of outfits were all over.  Leggings and a blazer and call it a day fast forward to 2020 minus the dark lip liner and nude lips I felt like a blast from the past.

Plaid pants and a sweater vest

Image
I heard sweater vests are back and I couldn't be more happier... This year I have enjoyed the transition from Summer to Fall.  Every year I missed the window where you can layer and not have to cover your outfit with a coat.  I am surprised that it is Nov and the weather has been really nice! I am taking full advantage of it by wearing all the amazing vests hanging in my closet.  I am also loving all the orange and brown colors this season I immediately knew these pair of pants would go great with this vest, a belt and suede boots. xo, Yaudy Cristina   What I am wearing UO pants, Zara boots, Forever 21 top, vest found at Goodwill (no tag), Target bag --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Shop similar

These Boots Are Made For Everything!

Image
When you finally get the doc Martens you always wanted..... And I have been wearing them non stop with dresses, pants, leggings and skirts.  They are finally comfortable (not going to lie) they weren't in the beginning, but now I love them!  They are also a great transition shoe.  Perfect for Fall and Winter. How is everyone coping with this crazy election?!? xo, Yaudy Cristina   What I am wearing Ludovica dress (shop in my town) / Doc Marten boots -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Shop similar

Comfort First

Image
I found a new love for sneakers!!! If there is one thing I don't miss has to be wearing heels.  I put my feet thru so much pain wearing uncomfortable shoes almost every day that they are probably thanking me right now because I am letting them breath.  I still wear some heels, but not those pumps that look good but are extremely uncomfortable. This right here has been my uniform during the stay at home orders,  sweat pants, sneakers and a blazer.  You can add a blazer to any outfit and it just makes it better.  These pair of sneakers I found at TJ Maxx and I have been wearing them non-stop.  I used to have Keds growing up and I am so glad I found the exact same style.  Happy Tuesday friends! xo, Yaudy Cristina   What I am wearing Forever 21 blazer, Madewell t-shirt, K&M sweatpants, Keds sneakers and Shein bag -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Shop Similar

November

Image
I miss sandal weather already..... How is it November already?  The first half of the year went by so slow and now it seems to be flying by.  I am not mentally prepared for the holidays because I feel we were cheated of this year. I would still try to make the best of it and enjoy this time with the "new normal" in mind. Happy November! xo, Yaudy Cristina   What I am wearing Levi's denim jacket (thrifted) / Ludovika top / H&M pants / Forever 21 sandals --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Shop Similar

I have the news in my bag

Image
  Remember when I said I didn't  like shoulder pads? I was wrong.... This had become one of my favorite styles to wear and I will probably continue to wear all thru Winter.  Zara got me hooked with this top!  I paired it with jeans and clear heels last month.  The jeans have a looping detail on the side and my bag's print is news about fashion.   Let's face it those are the only news I want to hear haha xo, Yaudy Cristina What I am wearing Zara top Shein bag Forever 21 jeans Who What Wear shoes for Targer ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ SHOP SIMILAR \

Fashionably late, but hello October! I am  most excited about pumpkin picking, pumpkin spice lattes and most importantly my Fall wardrobe. Let's make it a great October. Xo, Yaudy Cristina   What I am wearing Shein dress, Zara sandals, Francesca's sunnies Shop similar

Last Summer Hot Day

Image
The last Summer Hot Days...... I have so many dresses that sometimes is hard to pick one to wear or I just keep grabbing the same ones.  This one is particular is one of my favorites, it is perfect for those hot days and also good for layering when the temperature starts to go down.  I also have to say these sandals have been on heavy rotation.  I just love how comfortable they are and how they go with pretty much everything. By the way, today starts Hispanic Heritage Month!! Celebrate with me :) xo, Yaudy Cristina   What I am wearing Dress found at T.J Maxx Bag gift from Cuba Steve Madden sandals H&M hat Shop Similar

Prints

Image
The challenge of mixing prints.... I have always been a fan of print mixing, but sometimes feel it becomes a challenge.  For me the easiest print is animal print, I heard somewhere that it is in fact a neutral and it goes with anything you pair it.  I wore this on my first day of vacation last month for dinner by the water only to be rained out hahah Happy Thursday friends! xo, Yaudy Cristina    What I am wearing: Cotton shirt Thrifted skirt and belt (Goodwill) Franco Sarto shoes Shein bag Shop Similar

Summer Time Sadness

Image
Hello September!!! My birthday month and a whole of bunch of other people I know LOL  Today we closed out Summer and I already feel sad.  I feel down because we were robbed, yes robbed.  Summer is my favorite season and this virus just took all the fun away.  I am not saying my Summer was uneventful, but all my international travel plans got canceled.  I tried to make the best of it by going to explore new places, new town and some beach days and that at least satisfied me. I gave the head scarf a try and I loved it! it made me feel like I belong in France in the 60's, I have no idea why it gave that vibe haha I have been behind posting on here that I can't remember where I wore this to, but it is definitely a style I will repeat again with jeans and a sweater.

Fall Ready

Image
Good bye August.... Welcome pumpkin spice everything and the start of my favorite month September!! I can't hide the fact that I am excited for Fall.  I can't wait to do all my favorite Fall activities and eat my first apple cider donut (The first bite is always the best!).  And the most important transition from dresses to sweaters, sandals to boots and dust out all those light jackets. Happy Week! xo, Yaudy Cristina What  I am wearing: Shein dress and bag Steve Madden sandals Shop Similar

Give Me All The Comfortable Shorts

Image
When you find the most comfortable shorts.... This Summer and pretty much most of Spring I lived in lounge wear.  But it was a nice upgrade to find comfortable shorts to wear anytime I got a chance to get out of the house.  These pair from Mango have been in heavy rotation and I plan to wear them until the end of Summer.   When the "stay at home" orders were put in place, I swear my clothes knew lol Nobody really dresses up anymore, but for me it was a big disappointment.  I still have some clothes I didn't get to wear, but I am happy that orders were lifted and I got to go out and take my poor sad clothes for a spin.

Clothes Hoarder

Image
Shopping my closet has been so fun!! I do two closet clean outs a year one where I get rid of stuff and the other one I rotate items that have been hanging there for a while and I don't usually wear. This dress is one of those items.   It was very humid the day I decided to take it for a spin, and the material is not the most breathable, but I love it!  Before this time I only wore it on a cruise in 2012, I guess you can call me a clothing hoarder LOL What I am wearing: Forever 21 dress Shein shoes Cole Han bag via T.J.

Deep Cut Gardens

Image
The charm of Deep Cut Gardens... In an effort to keep busy and not let quarantine get to me , I have been planning little trips and discovering new things around me.  That is how I found this beautiful gardens only an hour away from my house.  The landscape was amazing, the whole place is well kept and welcoming. It was a perfect activity to put on a floral dress and pretend I was somewhere else. I recently discover Shein  and I am in love with all the dresses and tops they have.  I got this dress for a very reasonable price and it fits like a glove.  With a lot of "cheaper" clothes, you never know what you are getting, but I can honestly, say I have not had any problems with any item i ordered. Everything fits true to size and I have washed a couple of pieces and they do not shrink or anything. Here are a few snaps of the gardens and if you live in the New Jersey  area make sure to pay it a visit. xo,  Yaudy Cristina What I am wearing: Sh

Chasing Lavender

Image
How is it the middle of August? 2020 has been the craziest year ever and it is hard to process that is almost coming to its end.  I have so many fun things plan for this week (surprisingly) but I have decided to enjoy the rest of the Summer.  This was taken a few weeks ago, when we took a ride down  to  Happy Day Farm.  I went looking for lavender, but I was too late (like most of the things in my life lol) but we still managed to have a great time.  I wore this dress I got from Shein and this beautiful beaded bag I found in Etsy.  After we walked the farm we had homemade ice cream and headed to the local farmers market. Hope you all have a wonderful week! xo, Yaudy Cristina What I am wearing: H&M hat Shein dress Target sandals Etsy bag Shop similar

In The Jungle

Image
  How is it August already?! I have been in a cleaning mode and so happy I have found so many old items that still fit.  Like this blouse for example.  I got this like 2 years ago and never worn it, I call it it my jungle shirt LOL I feel so much more organized and lighter after all the things I git rid of.   Why do we hang on to things and never even wear them?  Crazy thing, right? Happy August friends! xo, Yaudy Cristina   What I am wearing: Urban Outfitters shirt Thrifted skirt from Goodwill Target sandals Shop Similar

Tie Dye

Image
Tie dye anyone? I am obsessed with this dress and pretty much anything tie dye.  It brings me back to the 80's and also reminds me of Carrie Bradshaw lol  I don't know why we stopped wearing it, I am so glad is back and hopefully for a long time. I got this dress from St. Cole  a shop I discover on Instagram.  They have amazing stuff from dresses to hats to sets it is just amazing!  Be sure to check them out. Now on to trying to stay cool it will be another hot day. xo, Yaudy Cristina What I am wearing:  St. Cole dress Thrifted mules via GoodWill Shop Similar

The More You Know

Three Things that Covid19 quarantine has taught me. I have not have a lot of time to think about all that's happening,  thankful to God, I am still busy with work and when I am not busy doing that, I try to stay distracted as much as I can.  But these three things I learned early on, specially when the stay at home orders were put into place. One People will not make time for you.   This one hit me the hardest.  As busy as I was, I made time to check on pretty much everyone I know.  A text or call even a Facebook message.  Some did come back and reciprocate, but not everyone will act the same towards you.  I read this somewhere and it has been replaying in my head ever since "make time for people who make time for you, not people who only talk to you when they have time".  Specially now that all stay at home orders have been lifted. Two Your family is important. I knew this of course, but unfortunately for me all mine is far away.  Things a
