Summer is coming! I can´t wait and in anticipation, I pulled together some fun fabulous looks for my trip to the Canary Islands, since the weather was summery and beautiful there.
The key to beach dressing and looking fabulous is floaty, fun, bright, patterned and of course, keeping it casual. Floaty dresses, scarves, yellows, pinks, and greens, and even denim can work when done the right way.
Tips: Try to put fun combos together. Summer is all about that carefree attitude, so don´t take anything too seriously. Make sure not to look too coiffed or overdone. Dress up a basic outfit with chunky sunglasses, a bangle, or a hat. For hair, beachy waves or a messy braid are great. Blowout: not neccessary!
I hope you enjoy the pics of my friends and I and I hope they provide some inspiration for your summer looks on how to look fabulous on the beach!

With all the hoopla about Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, I completely forgot to post my favorite look from the Premios Goya which is basically the Oscars, but for Spain. So here I have my favorite look from the Premios and also my favorite from the Oscars.
Oscars: Amanda Seyfried looked gorgeous in her lavender Alexander McQueen gown. I normally hate lavender but this girl knows how to work it. The dress reminded me of Elie Saab and I think she just looked stunning.
Premios Goya: Paula Echaverría is wearing a floor length green number from Dolores Promesas. I adore the color and she looks perfect. I have a lot of respect for Spanish celebs that look amazing at awards shows because they are not all dressed by Rachel Zoe-some of them actually pick out their own gowns!
I always fall over and die when I see Jenny Packhams beautiful dresses and of course I swooned over her Fall 2013 collection. I love that pinkish color she uses a lot for this line.
The dresses were feminine, soft and romantic. See for yourself below.
Happy Tuesday! I think it´s raining everywhere today…here in Madrid, and of course Hurricane Sandy is washing away the East Coast over in the USA…everyone stay warm and stay inside! Have a cup of tea and a quick peek at four looks by the four designers who won the ¨Russian Silhouette Design Contest¨-Alexey Vlasov, Doroshenko, Migle Janasaite and Julia Soloviova.
I love the below looks…for lack of better description-very Russian! The fur hats and shawls are exactly what comes to mind when you think ¨Russian Silhouette¨. More to come on Fashion Week Moscow!
This year I made an amazing store discovery at Fashion Night Out and I will for sure be back to this gorgeous boutique.
The name of the shop is called Teria Yabar and it is a boutique featuring clothes and accessories. Above all the purses and jewelry are beautiful and very reasonably priced.
I fell in love with these clutches which were priced at just 42 euros. A gorgeous AND affordable boutique. LOVE!
I will be passing back into the boutique for sure. Details in case you´d also like to pay a visit:

I am back in Madrid after a 10 day holiday in the Greek Islands, and all I can say is WOW. I have never seen such breaktaking natural beauty! I loved every second of Greece, the sights, the food, the locals were funny, quirky and friendly…it´s been a vacation I´ll never forget, that´s for sure. Now to add to the local breathtaking beauty, I´ve added a few fabulous outfits I floated around in during my vacay. Today marks the end of August and once September starts…fall fashion it is! So enjoy these last few beach pic and then let´s dive right into to fall fashion!
White drawstring dress from H &M.
Yellow beach coverup/dress from Zara

Coming soon…Madrid Fashion Week Recaps!
I know I said I wouldn´t shop more this summer…well…I lied. I realized that come August I am going to Greece, and my dreams of strolling around the beach and little Greek fishing villages wearing all white linen every day all day for 10 straight days were not coming true unless I began to pump up the white in my wardrobe.
SO I bought two white little numbers, one from Lefties and one from H & M. They super cute and very much in style and I can´t wait to sport them in Crete this summer.
This first dress is from Lefties and as you can see it´s got a cute little waistline and is made of a lace/crochet fabric with a cottton lining underneath. The dress fits like a glove and looks adorable. I can´t wait to throw it on with some wedges and dance off into the Greek sunset!
This H&M dress is crocheted at the top with a drawstring waist. It´s slightly more casual-I could wear it as a beach cover up with flip flops or cute flat sandals.
There´s nothing better than being tan and wearing white all summer long. Punto.
This year my absolute favorite dress was worn by Diane Kruger, and she actually wore TWO of my favorite looks! So today´s feature is on her and her two (of many) fantastic Cannes fashion.
The dress , worn for the opening ceremony, was designed by Giambattista Valli and she is also wearing Repossi earrings. It looks like shes floating on water or something, just LOVE it!
This short number, a pleated, burgundy Versus dress dress paired with Jimmy Choo shoes was perfect for the Jury Photocall. I would absolutely wear this outfit, adore it!
One of my favorite brands from the USA is Free People. Although their price point is slightly higher than what I would normally spend, they often offer great sales and of course inspiration as well for searching for vintage finds, as their vibe is very bohemian and laid back.
Exciting news, Free People is now shipping to Spain and other European locations-hooray!!! Here are a couple of my favorite dresses from the spring collection! You can see more on the Free People Website.

Happy Friday! Today I am obsessed with this Mango dress, for two reasons. One, because it´s white and I´m happinest when I am tan in a white dress! I am going to Greece this summer so clearly I need an entire wardrobe of white, flowing outfits and this one is perfect. Two, because it is asymetrical, long in the back, short in the front, which is my new favorite style in a dress. It combines the elegance of a long dress with the casual, fun look of a short sundress…perfect for all occasion.
Tell me you don´t want this dress, it´s gorg! Available from Mango, and image from Mango.
