It’s mid-february, so its no surprise to deal with freezing cold weather every single day. So, this week when the sun finally decided to show up, I was eager to join the party. I always claim that the cold doesn’t bother me (call me Elsa) because it’s winter, and there’s nothing we can do to change the seasons, so we might just as well embrace it and try to make the best of it, but this year in particular I’ve had to wake up at 6 AM in order to arrive on time to my 7 AM class and let me tell you that the weather during the first hours of the day is extreme. It never snows in Mexico and this year the weather was so intense that we almost had snow.

So, like I was telling you before I got all Elsa from Frozen, this week the sun finally decided to say hi and it’s been wonderful. I think I had never missed the warm rays of light as much, so naturally the first thing I did was grab a dress. This white one I’ve had for years now, I actually got it for a trip to the beach and it’s such a versatile piece. You can dress it up or down, it’s perfect.

I decided to pair it with this trench coat just in case it got a little chilly later that day because mornings and nights have remained cold. This beautiful coat is from Ivonne, I don’t know if its still available but right now trench coats are a thing so I’m sure you won’t have trouble finding these babies.

I just hope the weather keeps being amazing, I’m so over winter. Also big thank you to my cousins for shooting this outfit for me, you’re the best. Which season is your favorite?

There are only a few things that I enjoy as much as going through a fashion magazine or staying in to watch a movie, so getting to do both things at the same time is golden for me. There have been many amazing series devoted to fashion and style, like the oh so perfect Gossip Girl, from the wardrobe, to the locations and the psychology of the characters that managed to inspire us in every single episode. Since the Serena Van Der Woodsen days are long gone, I thought it was time to bring back that amazing feeling, but this time focusing on the major motion pictures. I’ve decided to share with you 7 of my favorite fashion related movies.

1. The Devil Wears Prada

I know you’ve probably seen this movie a billion times, but not including it would be a terrible sin. I won’t go a lot into what this movie is about because I don’t want to spoil it for you if you haven’t seen it. Just watch it and thank me later. This movie was adapted from a book written by Lauren Weisberger, who worked at Vogue magazine for awhile. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out she was inspired by Anna Wintour (American Vogue’s Editor-In-Chief) to create Meryl Streep’s character.

2. The September Issue

Talking about the Queen.

The September Issue is a documentary that focuses on Anna Wintour, Vogue’s Editor-In-Chief while preparing the start of the “Fashion Year”. If you didn’t know, september is like january for fashion magazines. It’s the most important issue of the year, and when you’re the leader of a magazine like Vogue, everything has to be perfect.

3. The Intern

The Intern is a movie starring Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro. It talks about an old man that applies for a retirement internship citizen program and lands a job at an e-commerce fashion startup. This is the best fashion + comedy combo. You’ll love it.

4. Coco before Chanel

This movie is next on my list when I get to stay in. This french movie tells the story of Coco Chanel, all the way from her origins to the incredible empire she ended up building. She was truly a pioneer in the fashion world and everybody should know her story, plus I’m pretty sure this one is available on Netflix.

5. Funny Face

Funny Face is a musical from 1957 starring Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire. Audrey’s character, Jo Stockton, is discovered at a fashion shoot in a bookstore and her adventures as a model take her all the way to Paris. If you love musicals, you will adore this movie. Besides, who doesn’t love a good Audrey Hepburn movie?

6. Confessions of a Shopaholic

A girl that loves fashion, living in New York. Sounds like a dream, right? Yeah, well… things can get really messy when you’re a shopaholic. If you love to shop and your happiness leves rise overtime you see the word “sale” you will relate. Honestly this movie is all of us, and its perfect for a popcorn night with your bestie.

7. Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Another Audrey Hepburn movie and a classic for sure. Breakfast at Tiffany’s is based on a book written by Truman Capote. It revolves around the peculiar life of Holly Golightly, a New Yorker socialite and her cat. If you haven’t seen this one, do it, you won’t regret it. Besides, it has just the perfect touch of romance.

Do you know any other movies that are a must for fashion lovers?

This feels like an official milestone for me, after launching my blog almost 2 months ago, I’m finally posting my first outfit pictures. Isn’t that exiting? For me it kind of is.

This is part one of a three-part post. It’s all dedicated to my ripped jeans. The base of the outfits for the 3 posts is the same, ripped jeans, dark rib t-shirt and sneakers. You’d think there’s no way I can completely transform this look with the same exact jeans, shirt and sneakers, but you’ll be surprised.

If you follow me on Instagram, you know how obsessed I am with my new Ray-Ban sunglasses. Before I found this purple beauties, I was determined to invest my money on the most wanted sunglasses of the year, Dior’s So Real sunnies. For over a month I was completely infatuated by them, until I went to the mall recently and stopped at sunglass hut. My boyfriend and I tried on pretty much every single pair of sunglasses at the store until he told me I should try the Ray Bans and I haven’t been able to take them off ever since.

Now, about those magnificent ripped jeans that I just can’t seem to keep my mouth shut about… They were not that ripped originally, actually it was just a little couple of holes. Has it ever happened to you? You’re casually putting on your favorite pair of ripped jeans and all of a sudden your foot ends up in the wrong place? Every single time my foot ends up on the hole that is meant for the knees, that’s why these jeans are way more ripped than they used to be. But I really like them this way.

The shirt I’m wearing it’s from Zara, I got it like a year ago, so I don’t think it’s still available. But to replicate this look any rib shirt will do the trick. Also the cardigan I’m wearing… I don’t even know where I got it, it’s kind of a long story but my lovely aunts tend to give me clothes that they don’t like or don’t fit them anymore, and I think this is one of those pieces.  I adore this cardigan, it just goes with everything and I’m willing to call it my favorite piece for a chilly day.

Believe it or not, we are halfway through january (what, already?). So, how are you doing with your new year’s resolutions? If one of your goals this year is to get more fit, this tips are for you. Not all of us have the money (or time) to sign up for a gym membership, and maybe you do but sometimes you only have a few minutes a day to get a workout and the gym is just too far away, maybe you just feel lazy… there are a million reasons why working out is just not happening for you, and whatever those reasons are, here are some tips to get your fit on, for free.

Drink More Water

So simple, yet so hard. Just ditch all those sodas and sugar filled beverages for plain old water. You’ll see the results in no-time. You will feel more energized. If you want to take this to the next level: carry a re-usable water bottle (be nice to the environment) everywhere you go. Cheers!

Walk

Whenever you can, take the stairs instead of the elevator. Park you car farther than usual so you get to walk more, you can even ditch your car when you have to travel short distances. Next level: Make a hella-good playlist on your phone or your favorite music streaming app and go for a walk or run around your neighborhood, you can even take your dog.

Workout At Home

There are a lot of different ways for this one, my favorite one is… youtube videos. You can find any kind of workout imaginable, you just have to find a place in your house and press play. My personal favorite is Cassey Ho from Blogilates. She provides you a completely free monthly workout calendar, in which she tells you exactly which of her videos you have to do every single day. All you need is a mat or a carpet. Next level: Make some space in your daily agenda and dedicate an hour a day for workouts (and actually do them) for a month, you’ll feel amazing.

Use Your School / Apartment Gym

This is very self explanatory. Do your research and find out if your school or apartment building have a gym of its own, most of the times they do and the best part if that you can use it for free (it’ already charged in your tuition or rent).

Play Your Favorite Sport

Just call some friends, meet in a close-by park that has a basketball or football field, bring a ball and have fun! You will have a lot of fun and a great workout. The best of both worlds.

Believe In You

You might have access to all the gyms in the world, but if you don’t have motivation you will not accomplish anything. Wether you want to loose/gain weight, get fit or simply get more active, none of this tips will work if you don’t believe in you. When you’re working out and you feel like you’re dying (that would be me), just remind yourself how amazing you will feel when you complete the workout session, what will happen when you keep doing that for a week, then a month, then a year? You can do anything, just believe in you.
