Cool for the Summer // Pt.1

IMG_4589.JPG

If it weren’t for pool parties, frozen rose, sun kissed tan, and of course, vacations, I would prefer for Spring to jump straight into Fall. If your level of exaggeration is like mine and you’re already suffering heat strokes at the minimum rise of temperature then you know what I mean. So when layering your body with fabrics seems like an impossible task and staying in the AC (me) sounds like a better alternative, it’s time to reconsider on how we are approaching the heat without having to resource to shorts and tanks.  

Monotone outfits will and always be a go to trend in my book, especially when it comes to light weight chambray. I’m wearing a high waist, wide leg pants with a lighter tone chambray self-tie Oh My Love Crop. Flirty with retro echoes are defining this season. Accessories are my color pops, our Carrie Retro Sunnies and Kiki Embroidered Clutch works perfectly with this little ensemble.


CHIC'TIQUE X MARFA

It is no secret Marfa has a special place in our hearts. Truly our favorite place to disconnect, gather all the creative juices possible and sometimes when just going with the flow, magical things happen. We are not the only ones escaping to the desert. This time, we partnered with one of the creative minds behind local bloggers Twenty Something SA, Alyssa Walker and amazing photographer Jessica Giesey to take us with them during their yoga retreat hosted by Mobile Om. And yeah...like I mentioned...magic. Follow link here to see more

Happy 4th of July Weekend!

Instagram Stories // Pt.3

Third is the cardinal rule of insta material: if you see a cool wall, you bend and snap. A mural to match the outfit is one for every blogger out there. I’m wearing a silky baby blue kimono with wide leg baby blue jumpsuit and pops of red., a second feature of this beautiful piece on our blog, check out how we dressed it down on this post.

Making fashion your own and creating your style is in itself insta material, nothing should be praised more than individuality. Be inspired and created your own block of daily tiny squares.

Instagram Stories // Pt.2

I like to think of this one as: @blaireadbee x @manrepeller. A feminine midi skirt dress, whimsical pin blue and white pinstripes over raw hem cropped jeans, because any man repeller would say she was too lazy to take the jeans off and made an avant-garde look out of it. Mint baubles and pink shoes to brighten the color pallete.

Instragram Stories // Pt.1

Let's be real, chances are we'll develop Carpal Tunnel syndrome from all the scrolling and insta stalking we've done on our phones. Instagram darlings like Aimee song, Julie Sarinana, Leandra Medine, just to name a few, are some of my favorites --I'll bill them my medical bill later. But let’s cut to the chase and talk about their style. The students have surpassed the teachers. We’re not looking at vogue magazine editors or designers for style tips. These millennials have taken over the digital world and defined the word "influencer". Doing fun things like traveling around the world, taking selfies with Karl Lagerfeld and eating every damn day avocado toasts like it’s nobody’s business. You'll have to give that to me...that's something I actually do follow: stuffing my face with avocado toasts.

I took screenshots of some of my favorite looks from these gals and decided to recreate them in the real world. Stepped in their shoes and even added the same pose. Let's take these Insta worthy outfits and make it our own.

A la Song Of Style: Aimee Song, globe trotter loves her denim cut offs paired with designer pieces. Using her style go to, I’m wearing a black cold shoulder blazer, toe capped low heel sling backs, a white vintage tank and true to her choice of jewelry, dainty gold details. Sans the loads of bugambilia. The blogger
