How to wear Black during Summer

Wearing black during summer is not something I tend to do often. In Miami, the heat is insane and well, black doesn’t help. However, I read online while researching summer trends that black was going to be an ‘it’ color for the season. At the beginning, I thought it was crazy, then I kind of started thinking ways I could wear it. Maybe, just maybe, it didn’t have to be an all black long sleeve outfit. The Zara pants are just a great, cool – and by cool I mean not hot – way to wear the color without suffocating. My first thought, was to wear a black and white outfit, because of course those are my favorites. The blouse is from Tobi and it has become one of my favorites.

The whole look is perfect for a day out, whether you are going shopping, to a friends house, or just out for lunch. It is comfortable, and of course trendy. Did I mention also super affordable? With the exception of the shoes, which are the key piece to bring color to a black and white outfit. The shoes are Dolce & Gabbana, and along with the handbag are my current obsession. I create my outfits around them. My mom asked me the other day if I had forgotten about the rest of the shoes in my closet. But hey! That’s how I roll, from obsession to obsession.

Una de las cosas que nunca imaginé hacer es usar negro en el verano. Siempre he sido de las que piensa que el negro y lo colores oscuros son mas del invierno. Hace meses leí en internet, mientras investigaba sobre las tendencias del verano, que el negro seria una de ellas. La verdad pensé que era una locura, pero poco a poco la idea se fue sentando en mi cabeza. Entonces decidí retarme y pensar maneras de como incorporar el color en mis outfits del verano. Estos pantalones de Zara son una opción excelente; no solo por que son negros jaja pero por lo cómodos! En vez de usar un outfit todo negro e imaginarme que me derrito, opté por un outfit blanco y negro, y además son mis favoritos.

El look es perfecto para cualquier ocasión. Ya sea un almuerzo, una salida con amigas, y hasta para ir de compras. Es cómodo y ademas muy a la moda. Les mencioné que ademas las piezas son super económicas? Con la excepción de los zapatos, que aunque los compre en rebaja, son Dolce & Gabbana. Pero era el toque de color que el outfit necesitaba. Junto con la cartera son mi obsesión, no paro de usarlos. Mi mama me preguntó el otro día que si me había olvidado de los demás zapatos que tengo en el closet jaja! Pero así soy, voy de obsesión en obsesión.

¿Alguien cómo yo por aquí? Dejen abajo en la cajita de comentarios su obsesión actual!

XOXO, Ana Cristina Mariño

Summer Night Outfit with Tobi

A lot has happened this past week! And there are a lot of things to share here. First of all, Game of Thrones premiered and I almost died watching the episode. I promise no spoilers, but OMG! I love Daenerys, she’s is a true queen. Of course, I worked a lot during the week as usual *rolling eyes*. I tried recording an intro video for the blog, but that didn’t happen. I was about to hit record, when my doorbell rang and my two nieces started running all over the place. The video recording has been posponed for this upcoming weekend. My country, Venezuela, as many of you know is going through a rough patch. On Sunday, we decided to put a halt to that. We voted, and we demand the government to hold democratic elections.

Phew, those were a lot of things. Now, to the fashion-related news. I came across a job posting from Dolce and Gabbana that excited me a lot. Sometime in the upcoming months, the brand is opening an outlet store! Even though I’ll probably have to save 5 years straight to afford anything, I am super excited. Also, Swim Week is in four days. I hope you are all following me on Instagram, @modaddicted, so you can attend with me through Insta-stories all the cool events.

Last but not least, I took photos of this outfits with a very versatile top. The top is form Tobi, they were kind enough to gift me 3 pieces. I promise I’ll upload outfits with the other two asap. My immediate thought was to pair it with jeans, but I thought it was the easiest outfit to create. I went for the baby pink skirt which I love the combination of colores and scrappy sandals. It is the perfect outfit for a night out or a cocktail event.

XOXO Ana Cristina Mariño


Han pasado demasiadas cosas esta semana. Ya comenzó la nueva temporada de Game of Thrones, en Venezuela y en todas partes del mundo votamos por el Si, Si, Si. También intente grabarles unos videos para YouTube, pero eso no se dio. Justo cuando iba a grabar, llegaron mis sobrinas a la casa. Esta semana si les prometo grabar varios videos y un vlog de la semana de la moda en Miami (Swim Week). Me enteré por ahi que Dolce & Gabbana va abrir un outlet aquí en Miami. Aunque probablemente tenga que ahorrar muchísimo para comprar algo de ahi, igual me emociona jaja.

Bueno por último, les dejo las foticos de este look que me encantó. Les sirve para salir una noche por ahi de fiesta como para algún evento importante con traje cocktail. La blusa es de Tobi, una tienda online que me encanta. Me mandaron tres piezas y les prometo publicarles outfits con las otras piezas pronto!

No se olviden de seguirme por Instagram, @modaddicted, para que se vengan conmigo a Swim Week!

XOXO, Ana Cristina Mariño
