Recapping #GentSTL

11039582_10203926324261005_1348440496_nLast thursday was GentSTL, a show filled with fashion just for men. Which is something you don’t see much in the fashion industry. I was lucky enough and won 2 VIP tickets attend and I have to say the set up, designers, clothes, booths, and people were nothing but amazing!

Spanish/Español:
La semana pasada fue el evento GentStl que es un show de pasarelas y esta ves para la moda del hombre. Fui muy afortunada y gane 2 boletos para atender el evento, en cual tenían diseñadores,  ropa de la moda, mezas de tiendas y cosas diseñando para hombres y gente increíble!

DSC_0295-2  Happy 1st Birthday my little blog!

Holy cow its been a year! It feels like it was just yesterday I was contacting some of my favorite bloggers to ask them for advice on starting and now its my first Blogiversary! This celebration called for a fun photo shoot and what better place to have it than in a cupcake shop?! A special thank you to Emily and The Cup for letting me take my pictures in their shop because it was too darn cold outside.

Snow Days

DSC_0203

I may not be a fan of the cold weather but I have to admit pictures in the snow are just so pretty. Though at times it may feel hard to look cute bundled up in so many layers, I have found that wearing all black with one bold color can bring a whole look together. When has an all black outfit ever failed anyone? Black attire is truly my best friend all year but especially in the winter time.

Spanish/Español:

Siendo del sur donde siempre esta caliente, no soy una fanatica del frio y mucho menso la nieve. Pero si tengo que admitir que la nieve hace para fotos hermosas. Y claro mi mejor amigo esta temporada es el color negro, porque cuando ha fallado el color negro con alguien? Ha encontrado que durante el tiempo de frio la mejor cosa de hacer es agregar un poco de color para dar le un poco de vida a tu look.

Men’s Series: How to Step Up Your Sock Game

IMG_7328  Welcome to a new series on CTYM, a series that I have been dying to do and took some convincing. You’ve seen my boyfriend, Chris do Hers & His posts with me in the past and I personally think he has impeccable yet reachable style, not to mention is more of a natural in front of the camera than me (which I’m jealous of).  Having that said, this new series will be  Men’s Series! Chris will share his tips, tricks, and advice on various topics in the world of men’s wear once a month.

So without any further adieu, here’s Chris with his first topic on the new Men’s Series, enjoy!

Bundled in Neutrals

elena_009 

If we are being honest with each other, truth be told I love to wear black (in case you haven’t picked it up). Especially in the winter time because I feel it’s a little harder to wear bright colors while trying to stay bundled up. I will say I like to add a pop of color on my lips if I can and something to that stands out a bit like this bag to not look completely gothic.This has been one of my go to looks all winter because it’s simple and the sweater is as cozy as it looks, which by the way I scored at the Scholar Shop!

Hope everyone is having a great week so far! Especially if you were off yesterday for President’s Day and today is your first day back or if you are form the STL area and had a snow day. :)

Spanish/Español:

Si soy honesta con ustedes es que me encanta el color negro. Me encanta poner me lo todo el año pero mas en el tiempo de frio porque es difícil poder mirarte vibrante cuando estas bajo un chaqueta, guantes, goro, y bufanda. Pero para no mirarme tan gotica  me gusta ponerme un labial de color rojo o rosa y una bolsa con un poco de personalidad. Este look a sido uno que me a puesto varias veces este frio y este suéter es lo mas suave y calientio que a encontrado.

Deseo que todos esten tienendo un gran semana, especialmente si ayer no trabajaron porque era El Dia de los Presidentes aqui en los Estados Unidos y si vives in STL como yo a lo mejor no trabajaste por la nieve.
