End of summer floral trend

Last Saturday, I had the opportunity to attend a brunch hosted by The Blogger Union and Cibo Wine Bar in South Beach. I arrived to the event 30 minutes late like a true latina. It was embarrassing, but it was all due to my lack of organization! I got a mani before leaving, because my mom taught me that no woman should ever get out of their house without having her hands and feet done. To that rule I add mascara lol. Never go outside without mascara; believe me, it makes a huge difference. Also, I struggled finding something cute to wear.

Summer is about to end, and I am trying to enjoy every bit of it. I opted for these floral palazzo pants from Forever 21 that I got years ago. As soon as I walked into the store, I fell in love with them. The pants became the most difficult piece of clothing to combine in my closet. I managed to find the perfect blouse to paired it with, but I always get stuck trying to think other ways. It is always a learning process when we buy these type of clothes. To me, floral and animal prints are the hardest to mix and match. The wedges I chose to wear are also from Forever 21 and so is the clutch. Can we all agree that Forever 21 is the best store for affordable apparel? And cute apparel too!


 El sábado pasado tuve la oportunidad de asistir a un brunch organizado por The Blogger Union en Cibo Wine Bar en Miami Beach. Por supuesto, Venezolana que se respete llega un poco tarde a todos lados y se queda hasta el final. Llegué 30min tarde, morí de vergüenza entrando al evento. Todo el retraso qué porque me antojé de hacerme las manos justo antes de bajar y pensé que me iba a dar tiempo. Desde pequeña me inculcaron a siempre tener las manos y los pies arreglados. A esta regla de vida yo decidí agregarle el mascara. Una mujer nunca debe salir de su casa sin mascara y siempre con las manos y los pies arreglados; uno nunca sabe a quien se puede topar en el transcurso del día.

Como el verano está a punto de terminar, decidí disfrutar de los estampados veraniegos como lo es el estampado floral. Estos pantalones tipo “palazzo” de Forever 21 los compré hace muchísimo tiempo. Apenas los vi me enamoré profundamente de ellos. Luego, se convirtieron en esa pieza de vestir que no logras combinar de otras maneras. Me costó bastante darle vueltas y ver con que otras piezas, que so fuesen la blusa de las fotos, podía combinarlos. Cuando se hacen estas compras es cuando mas se aprende a ver la versatilidad de las prendas de vestir. A veces las compramos por necesidad y luego es que le sacamos provecho combinándolas de diferentes maneras. Para mí, el estampado floral y el estampado de animales son los mas difíciles de combinar. Los wedges y el clutch también son de Forever 21!

¿No creen qué esta tienda es lo mejor que han podido inventar? Hay para todo el mundo y ademas es económica!

  1. I’m so ready for fall, but this time of year can be a bit of a challenge fashionwise. I love this floral look. It feel like the perfect choice for winding down on summer.

  2. You look adorable. I used to like that store quite a bit but think now I am a bit too old for ti. My daughter’s shop there now! haha ☺

    • I think the easiest way is to find a floral print with 1-2 colors. These pants were hard to combine. But maybe a shirt with jeans will be easier 🙂

  3. Your floral plants are so fun and look nice and comfortable, too! I love great clothes that are easy to wear!

  4. I love the shade of your top, that would work really well with my skin tone!
    The pants are adorable but they look like they are made out of lightweight material?
    It’s starting to get super cold here so that would work better as a summer piece for me.

  5. Cute pants! I have a similar pair, and I find them so hard to pair as well – I have one top I wear with them over and over again, but I really need to branch out 🙂
