First Day Back

Image
I am back in the office after almost two and a half years!!    Still cannot wrap my head around how my life changed these last few years.  I was craving seeing other people and having conversations with all those who I have missed so much.  Of course my outfit had to be perfect and even though it was freezing last month, I decided to wear a cropped blazer and faux leather pants for my return. All my outfits have been well planned out and will be coming this way for you to see. Happy Wednesday friends!

Vintage Love

Image
A mix of vintage and new.... I have become a vintage lover and vintage collector when it comes to denim.  There is nothing more satisfying than the feeling of a perfectly worn vintage pair of jeans.  In my collection, I have this Calvin Klein, a couple of Liz Claiborne Sport and my favorite pair will always be my Guess.   Every time I wear them it brings back memories to when I was a teenager in the 90's.   I paired them with a floral top, metallic sandals and vintage bag.  Have a wonderful weekend!

A Blazer Always Makes It Better

Image
I add a blazer anytime I feel my outfit is missing something ha... It is the best way to elevate a t-shirt and jeans.  This blazer is one of my favorites because is the most springy one I own.  The colors, the  pretty floral print, the style, everything about it is just amazing and I can't wait to style it again.

I Am Ready For Spring

Image
Who else? It seems like Spring forgot NJ this time around LOL But I am ready and waiting patiently.  These pictures were taken last year and I am so upset that I waited this long to post them.  I love florals in any type of garment.  These pants have been in closet forever and I don't ever plan to get rid of them.  I have a few more outfits planned with them as the day to return to office is fast approaching. xo, Yaudy Cristina   Outfit Zara top / Francesca's pants /Versona shoes / Vintage Liz Claiborne bag ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Shop Similar

And Just Like That

Image
And Just Like that Carrie Bradshaw came back!! There has been a lot of talk about the reboot of Sex and The City and as many others I liked and disliked various parts of the show.  The shocker on the first episode left me kind of empty to be honest.  I am a big fan of the show, big fan (I can recite lines and tell you what scene is coming next) kind of fan LOL and I would of love to have seen more of Big.  After all we all know how much she went through to finally be with the love of her life.   Needles too say, I was super excited when I heard it was coming to HBO. Let's start with the one think  I disliked the most... As a 44 year old woman myself I felt that  they made it seem like our life starts to be over at 50.  I mean does SJP really wears cold/hot patches and calls a back pain old lady illness? I doubt it! I totally get it, they couldn't stay the same.  The show had to evolve and so were the character, but come on.   I wasn't a fan of the outfits in the beginning ,

The Power Blazer

Can you tell I love leather? Leather has a "cool thing" to it at least to me.  Back when I was younger I used to buy a lot of pleather as I have always love the look of a leather piece.  Now, I tend to invest in either vegan leather or vintage leather.   I have thrifted a couple of good pieces including a pair of black leather pants and shorts that I know I will treasure those pieces forever.  I am on the hunt for a good leather jacket, I recently found a gold colored one on Etsy, but haven't had a chance to get it cleaned yet.  You will see it soon! This blazer I got at Express the pants are a hand me down from my boyfriend's mom's closet and the shoes are converse.  I wanted to keep it casual and just added a white Men's Hanes t-shirt (those are the best in my opinion).  I have worn this blazer a handful of times but didn't take any pictures.  I have to do a better job at that if I want to call myself a part-time blogger ha! I added a couple of other ins

Elevated Sweat Suit

Image
When the outfit is comfortable you wear the not so comfortable shoes, right? I found this set at K-Mart yes, you read that right LOL.. There is only one left in my area and I always go in there and browse every chance I get.   The boots and thrifted leather jacket gave this look the elevated feel I was looking for.  I have worn it with sneakers and a denim jacket and have also styled as separates.   I had a lot of fun this Fall playing with layering and also mixing my thrifted finds with new pieces.  This leather jacket I found at Goodwill for $14 dollars the first time I went thrifting.  I had no idea what I was going to find and I remember being super happy after I spotted it hanging there waiting for me to rescue it. This is definitely one of those pieces I will never get rid of.   Talking about getting rid of things, how many times do you clean your closet?  I always clean it 4 times a year, just so I can keep things neat and of course make room for new items.  I am working on a&qu

Winter Blues

The moment Christmas ends I want Spring.... I can't be the only one who craves Spring and Summer when the holidays are over.  I start dreaming about Summer fashion and want to start buying sandals lol Only to forget them in the back of my closet when the actual warm months get here. I am playing catch up on here, as you probably noticed my absence in the past years.  This outfit I wore last year around September.  I was so crazy about the asymmetrical waist on this jeans that I ordered them as soon as they were available in my size.  it gives a unique spin to your every day denim.  This shirt is from Zara and so are the boots.  Me and Zara have a love/hate  relationship, sometimes I walk in there and buy everything and other times I come out empty handed and hit the thrift store to try to find similar less expensive pieces. Anyways, if anyone reading this thrifts please share tips, as I can use any thrifting tips I can get. Enjoy your weekend guys! xo, Yaudy Cristina Follow on  Ins

Hello 2022

Happy New Year my friends! A new year has started and with that come new hopes, new dreams and a new mindset.  I personally do not like resolutions as I find they do not work for me, or better said- I have a hard time following them ha!  Instead I have decided to continue with my little monthly goals like have been doing for a couple of years. Some of the things I accomplished last year were things that made me happy and that brought me peace.  Something simple as making my bed everyday or keeping up with my laundry.  I needed a lot of push to do those two, but ever since I put my mind into it I can honestly say I have been very consistent. In 2022 I really need to work on getting dressed-up everyday.  I am falling into the habit of staying in my PJ's or just wearing sweatpants.  This is a habit that I need to brake ASAP.  I don't feel comfortable anymore, I hate that it became a "thing" for those of us who are still working at home.  Another thing is making sure I pu
