I have been meaning to post these last NY street style pictures for a while now but got so caught up with the Paris ones I forgot! Can’t get enough of denim shirts and long nude skirts. Although these pieces were super trendy this past season, they are subtle and basic enough to be reinvented into many different styles and clothing combinations. Denim shirts look amazing in both men and women and can add a touch to any plain or boring look. In previous posts I have talked about my love for denim vests and jackets. Even when you think they are gone and over with, they always come back- so it’s worth having one in your closet.
Some hate these Isabel Marant sneakers, others love them. I think they are stylish paired with skinny jeans and a basic t-shirt. I also think the hidden platforms are an awesome idea that must make you feel tall and lean even when wearing casual sneakers.
Denim on denim. Major no no? I don’t think so. I use to hate this combination but now I’m really acquiring a taste for it.
This LF skirt has got to be the number one item of clothing I most spotted this summer. In this picture above, my friend Luisa (from the super cute blog Sonhos de Crepom) was the one who in my opinion wore it best. The skirt looks perfect for an afternoon look when paired with a button down denim shirt and a cropped white t-shirt.
Same skirt in nude.
The heavy black boots break up the romantic feel of the lace cropped top together with the soft flowy skirt. I like it when outfits aren’t so literal and have some sort of contradiction. Makes it more interesting.
Super casual and comfortable for a day walking around the city.
Ps- Keep posted because within the next 24 hours I will have a surprise for you all!
Such a sweet and cute video. Really got me teary eyed =) I loved seeing this right after I surprised my boyfriend with his birthday trip… too bad he didn’t cry of joy like the little girl haha.
In yesterday’s post, I mentioned how colorful Barcelona is. So colorful that coming back to gray chilly Paris was a bit hard. I loved how vivid and vibrant the city is.
Papabubble candy. This candy shop sells super colorful sugar treats in many different flavors and shapes. I spotted sushi and chop stick shaped candy, large colorful ring shaped candies, phallic shaped candy and many more funny options. They also customize candy for parties, companies, gifts etc. so if are looking for a cute personalized gift or plan on throwing a party with candy favors, check out their website and place your order online.
La Boqueria market. Too bad I went there right after lunch. SOOO many yummy looking fruits and sweets!
Every type of fruit, any type of mix.
Street artist getting ready to perform. I love how this picture captures a “behind the scenes” feeling.
Little cute French Bulldog drooling while taking a nap. She woke up when I snapped the picture and got so shy she hid her head between her paws.
One of many amazing sangria pitchers.
Back in Paris after five amazing days in sunny Barcelona. It was so nice to lay on the beach, eat loads of seafood and walk around the colorful city. Have to be honest though- in terms of fashion and street style, I wasn’t so lucky with the tourists OR locals. Also, given my ultra fast packing constraints (it was a surprise trip for my boyfriend’s birthday and I had to secretly pack both our suitcases in 10 minutes while he showered), I didn’t have time to put together interesting and elaborate outfits. But on the other hand, I took quite a few pictures of beautiful details around the city. Here are a few… I will post more tomorrow! I also have some great restaurant tips for those of you who plan on going to Barcelona sometime in the near future.
Dug up this pleated plaid skirt from my closet the other day. I bought it 3 years ago in Paris but never really wore it more than once. I always thought it was hard to style into a look that didn’t scream school girl but after seeing so much plaid I felt inspired to give it a try.
Since I’m on a trip at the moment I am not writing super long posts. Sorryyy but in a couple of days I’m back in Paris and will go back to my usual posts.

Hello from Barcelona!! Didn’t get to post last night since I had to wake up at 3AM to catch a flight, so I forced myself to go to bed straight after work. Anyways, here is a look I have been wanting to post for a while now. I love the contrast of the green bushes with the dark clothing. I have always been a fan of mixing navy and black and have been seeing this color combination a lot lately. I got this vest at COS and so far have only worn it once but I can’t wait to pair it up with other outfit combinations. It is also a great piece for fall since the material of the vest is warm and heavy.
Wishing everyone a great Friday!!!

Just a few snapshots from these past days at Wang. Tomorrow is my last day and I am so sad! Anyways, here are the pictures and I am off to bed!!!

Impossible not to laugh and be in a great mood when I’m around him.
Since this week I didn’t have a weekend at all, I might as well reminisce about the past one. Went to Silencio, a new bar/club in Paris designed by David Lynch. We arrived at 12:30AM since only members are allowed before 12AM and had no problems getting in. I really enjoyed the bar but am anxious to go back when it’s not such a hype to actually observe the decor and all the little details. The barmen are generous when preparing your drink so that for sure is a plus in comparison to most places in Paris that charge you 15 euros for a drop of alcohol. The decoration and architecture of the place is exquisite and innovative. It almost feels as if you are in a maze due to the many corridors and different spaces.
After walking down about three flights of stairs, this is the entrance to the actual club. The irregular ceiling blocks together with the mirrors give such a cool effect.
I really loved the bathroom- especially these round mirrors that hang from the center of the ceiling.
Drink tickets (not my hand).

Was only able to get this one picture of me before the security guard came storming over. Not the best, buuut at least you can see a bit of the eccentric forest inspired tables and stoles.
If you are looking for a cool place to have a drink and socialize, I recommend Silencio. Although they have a dance floor, I wouldn’t necessarily call the place a club but instead more of a lounge. Check it out if you’re in Paris!
