Hello readers!
I know it has been a while but I am back! Another short trip. It seems that lately my trips have become small getaways. But I enjoy quick vacations too. The only problem is the “I don’t want to leave” feeling that I get when I have a great time on vacation.
Well I have been to New York City before but every time I come to the Big Apple I always have new experiences in terms of the places I visit and the restaurants I go to. There is a lot to do in New York City and that’s  why I love this city.
Today my pictures were taken at the famous restaurant Gallow Green. This rooftop bar at the top of the McKittrick Hotel offers a breath taking scenario with its earthy atmosphere. The staff are very friendly, delicious food and live music. For just $30 you can enjoy all you can eat brunch on the weekends and live music. I would recommend making a reservation. I went in the fall and the restaurant was very busy I can only imagine how busy this place might be summer time.

Outfit:
Ladies, here is a tip for those cool days: Wear a fitted dress under a dress when its cold.
I like to look good but being warm is my priority. Today was a mild fall day but since I am wearing a denim dress I decided to wear the black fitted dress underneath for comfort and warmth. Keep in mind the material and style of the dress you choose to wear since a lot of dresses can’t be worn with a dress underneath.
Another tip: Don’t be afraid of alterations.
If you really like something, and believe that you will wear often but perhaps it needs to be altered do so if you think will be worth it. I had to take in two sizes down in the waist of my dungaree dress but I was very with the result. A lot of times I end up altering my clothes which can be expensive sometimes. But I alter pieces that I really like and can’t find it in my size.

The Chicago Experience – City Attractions

After Miami I decided to go to Chicago. I love to travel, visit new places and experience new cultures. This was my first time in Chicago and defiantly won’t be the last. Things I enjoy doing when I am traveling are; fine dining, sight seeing, and shopping. On this day I ate at an amazing restaurant; Hugo’s Frog Bar & Fish House. I visited the famous Willis Tower known as one of the highest buildings in Chicago and I went to a lot of the high ends stores on Michigan Avenue.

Miami Getaway – Hilton Hotel Downtown Miami

First of all, I would like to thank the Hilton Hotel for being an essential part of my vacation. They really contributed for my amazing experience. The staff is friendly and informative. The staff are willing to help at all times. They made me feel at home. The food at the Hilton was very flavorful. I will definitely be going back. Oh, and I can’t forget to mention the view from my room, just spectacular!

Miami Getaway – Fringed

Fringes are definitely in and they are not going anywhere! I have to admit when this trend was coming back in fashion, I held myself back from buying  a lot of items with fringes. Some trends are in and out of fashion very quickly. I like incorporating some old trends with some new ones in my wardrobe. I wear things that make me feel happy and confident about myself.  This day was very special because I went out for dinner with a friend from Brazil that I hadn’t seen in over four years. We decided to meet each other in Miami and it was awesome!

Essentials (Part 1)

Hey everyone! Here comes my favorite post thus far. I am so happy to show you Essentials (Part 1). These are things I think every woman should have in their closet. Every woman should have a basic t-shirt. To add a little flare to it, I usually tie it at the back or the front. Leather pants are a must have in the closet! You can always dress it down to have a more casual feel, or dress it up to a more professional look. If you know me well, you know how much I love leather. The nude heel is something that recently became an essential in my closet, due to the neutral trends influenced by fashion.

Pop Of Colour

I really like putting very bright colours together. It just makes me feel happier. I think jewelry really helps accentuate the outfit. I like Garage. The store has a really nice young looking feel to it. The jewelry in there is always interesting.

INTRO

INTRO

Intro

My outfits come from a huge variety of stores. From the very high-end stores to things being sold on the streets. I get some of my clothes from places where people wouldn’t generally shop for clothing. Oh, and I can’t forget about the online shopping! … I absolutely  love online shopping. The Intro outfit is an outfit that can be worn to a ladies’ night, out on a date, or even to the movies.
