La Mariposa: Turquoise and Black Peplum

Hello & Happy Monday! I hope you had an enjoyable weekend! I had a great time shopping and touring Boston with my good friend, Sivan. We found some wonderful pieces… especially some from Zara, and I can’t wait to show them with you all! ;) This look is flirty and edgy at the same time. I purchased this blouse from Zara Mexico and I love it’s ridges and drstic peplum shape. It is so feminine and flirty. I’ve layered an equally dramatic peplum coat on top (a steal from Forever 21) to keep me warm, while adding some contrast and dimension to the look. Lastly, I paired leather pants to give this look some edge. I love mixing girly pieces with sporty or edgy ones, just to give my looks a new outlook.

This season we’ve seen a lot of green and cobalt blue- if you still haven’t picked anything up in those colors, but you want to, I’d recommend some heels. Blue heels are staple (wear them on your wedding day if you want!) and they can really add a good contrast to any look. This pair is a deeper cobalt, almost violet, so I loved pairing them with these deep turquoise top.

I will have some Thanksgiving Day ideas later this week, and some Holiday trends to share, as readers have requested these. Stay tuned for upcoming fun festivities! :)

and thanks for reading! …


¡Feliz lunes! Espero que hayan tenido un buen fin de semana. Sivan y yo nos divertíamos mucho iendo de compras y explorando Boston. Encontramos unas muy buenas piezas, especialmente de Zara :) se las mostraré en los días que vienen. ;) Este look es coqueto y llamativo a la vez. Compré esta camisa hace tiempo en Zara de México y me encanta las rayas y su forma drástica de peplum. La he combinada con una chanqueta, con un peplum tanto dramático. Añade una dimensión única al look. Por fin, me puse los pantalones de piel imitación porque me gusta mezclar las piezas súper femeninas con las más llamativas.

Esta temporada hemos visto mucho verde y azul cobalto. Si todavía no han comprado algo de los colores, (pero tienen ganas de comprar algo) les sugiero que compren unos tacones o verde o cobalto. Los tacones azules son un básico de un look, y añaden un contraste interesante a cualquier look. Este par tiene un color más morado, como violeta, y combinan con mucho. 

Esta semana les mostraré unas ideas que pueden llevar al día de acción gracias, y también las modas de los días festivos, porque son solicitudes de ustedes. :) Gracias por leer…

    I love how you added leather pants to toughen up this feminine look! Blue accessories are also a nice touch!

      Thanks Kristina… the leather pants make me love this look so much more than with regular pants! :)
