Happy Wednesday my loves!

So what’s a fashionista’s life without a little fun and pattern right? This outfit is very much out of my comfort zone hence the reason why I wanted to challenge myself with both of the latter. And what better way to do that than with some vibrant yellow florals and grid print. This past weekend, the hubby and I headed to the Miami Design District, a neighborhood known for its high-end stores, incredible restaurants and public art installations. It is also greatly known for its graffiti art, which is #PHENOMENAL! As an Art major and fanatic, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to incorporate this bold and graphic wall-art titled “Vortex” in my outfit (we were extremely lucky to have found it while driving through the neighborhood’s streets). That’s one of the most interesting things about Miami, there is so much to discover and appreciate, and especially for the visually heavy society we have grown to be.

Now, back to fashion, one of the reasons why I think this outfit works well (despite the contrasting patterns) is the color palette. When playing with patterns consider using similar and even monochromatic shades, also, the size of the pattern is very important. In this case, I used a very wide grid print with equally large graphic flowers. I know patterns can be very intimidating, but once you give it a try, you will be hooked!

JUGANDO CON ESTAMPADOS : PANTALONES FLOREADOS + BLUSA CUADRICULADA

Feliz Miércoles mis amores!

¿Qué es la vida de una chica que le gusta la moda sin un poco de diversión y estampados, verdad? Este look es algo que no acostumbro a vestir, por lo cual quería intentar combinar un poco de color con  bastante estampado. Y qué mejor manera de hacerlo que con floreados gráficos y un estampado estilo cuadriculado. Este fin de semana, mi esposo y yo visitamos el Design District de Miami, un barrio conocido por sus tiendas de lujo, increíbles restaurantes e instalaciones de arte. También es muy conocido por su arte de grafiti, que es ¡#FENOMENAL! Como estudie arte y soy fanática a ella, no podía dejar pasar la oportunidad de incorporar esta llamativa pared titulada “Vortex” en mi look (estuvimos de suerte al encontrarla mientras conducíamos por las calles de este barrio). Esa es una de las cosas más interesantes de M iami, hay mucho por descubrir y apreciar, y sobre todo para aquellos que disfrutan de todo lo visual.

Ahora, de vuelta a la moda, una de las razones por las que creo que este look funciona (a pesar de los estampados opuestos) es por los tonos del conjunto. Cuando decida usar estampados considere tonos similares e incluso monocromáticos, también el tamaño del estampado es muy importante. En este caso, he usado un estampado de cuadricula ancha y al igual de grandes son las flores gráficas del pantalón. Sé que combinar estampados puede intimidar, pero una vez que lo pruebes, ¡te enamorarás!
