Casual Weekends

Dress & Blazer: Zara / Sneakers: Vans / Hat: Forever 21
The best part of being in public relations is to get to meet amazing-talented people. Although it might seem hard to find true friends in this chaotic industry, once you meet those people you click with, you never let them go. This shoot was a couple of weeks ago with my amazing-talented friends I was talking about. Thanks to Patty Castañeda, blogger of Golden Sparks, for being my tutorial model of the month as well as the fabulous photographer Natalia Feliú for capturing these moments!
I always talk about my job but honestly, nobody understands it. Wanna know more about my life as a PR in Mexico City? Check out my interview for Lovin’ South Texas —> http://lovinsouthtx.com/young-professional-sara-castillo/
I’m always happy to share my experience as a young professional in the fashion field so one day I can help those who are building their paths. 
Love,
S

La mejor parte de estar en relaciones públicas es la gente tan increíblemente talentosa que llegas a conocer. Aunque parece difícil encontrar amigos verdaderos en esta industria caótica, una vez que conoces a las personas con las que haces click, jamas las dejas ir. Estas fotos fueron tomadas hace algunas semanas con mis increíblemente talentosas amigas de las que hablaba hace rato. Gracias Patty Castañeda, blogger de Golden Sparks, por ser mi modelo de tutorial del mes, así como a la fabulosa fotógrafa Natalia Feliú por capturar estos momentos!

Formal Wear Twist

Blazer: Forever 21 / Belt: Zara / Jeans: Joes / Clutch: Express / Shoes: Steve Madden 

Formal wear doesn’t always mean wearing a dress… right? 
It is funny how people freak out when they read the word “formal” on the etiquette section of their invitation. I actually love the word because to me, it means making it interesting and presentable for the occasion. Why wear a dress every time you see the word FORMAL? Let’s be honest ladies, we take a tremendous amount of time to find the perfect little dress to wear it once… for 2 or 3 hours… and then that’s it. After the very expected event we will just hide it behind our closet, isn’t that a waste of time and money? I have been there but I must say I have learned how to buy pieces I can mix and match for any type of occasion. I always take Olivia Palermo as an example!
I believe it also depends on the culture – we as mexicans like to take everything over the top and although it is fun to dress extremely nice for cocktails or weddings, you can also learn how to play with accessories and transform something casual into formal. 
Of course I wouldn’t wear this look for a wedding but a formal dinner will work absolutely just fine.

Vestirte formal no siempre significa tener que usar un vestido… cierto?
Es chistoso como la gente se asusta cuando ve la palabra “formal” en la sección de etiqueta de una invitación. En lo personal, me encanta porque para mí significa hacerte ver interesante y presentable para la ocasión. Porqué usar un vestido cada vez que ves la palabra FORMAL? Seamos honestas niñas, nos tomamos una cantidad de tiempo impresionante para escoger el vestido perfecto para usarlo una sola vez… por 2 o 3 horas… y ya. Después del tan esperado evento el vestido se va a esconder atrás del closet – apoco no es un desperdicio de tiempo y dinero? Yo he estado en esa situación pero debo decir que he aprendido a comprar piezas que puedo combinar para cualquier tipo de ocasión. Siempre tomo a Olivia Palermo como el mejor ejemplo!
Yo creo que también depende de la cultura – nosotros los mexicanos siempre nos encanta irnos al extremo, y aunque es divertido vestir súper extravagante para cocteles o bodas, también puedes aprender a jugar con los accesorios y transformar algo casual en formal. 
Obvio no usaría este look para una boda pero para una cena formal trabajaría totalmente bien. 

Love,
S

Burning RED

Between a new job and moving to a new home there is always a time to stop and relax – No place better to do so than a coffee shop like Cielito Querido Cafe. Definitely one of the best perks of moving to a new home: near coffee, a near gym and very near from my job! What else can I ask for.
Since I wear more subtle clothes during the week, I decided to take advantage of my red open-back top from Zara and to make it more casual for all the moving-run I wore my pair of leopard slips from Sam Edelman.
During times of stress it is always good to wear bright colors – be it on a top, an accessory or even makeup! Trust me, it will make you feel wonderful.
I can’t wait to show you my new home!

Love, 
S

Entre mi nuevo trabajo y el cambio de casa siempre hay tiempo para detenerte y relajarte – No hay mejor lugar para eso que un café como Cielito Querido Café. Definitivamente es una de las mejores cosas que hay en este cambio de casa: tengo el café cerca, un gimnasio y aparte estoy más cerca de mi trabajo! Qué más puedo pedir. 
Como uso ropa más sutil durante la semana para ir a trabajar, decidí aprovechar y usar mi top rojo con espalda abierta de Zara y, para hacerlo mas casual para las correderas de mudanza, usé mis tennis de leopardo Sam Edelman. 
En tiempos de estrés siempre es bueno usar colores fuertes – ya sea en el top, en un accesorio o incluso el maquillaje! Créeme, que hará sentir mucho mejor. 
Ya quiero enseñarles mi nueva casa!
Love, 
S

My mom tells me I wear too much black – however when I don’t use black I love wearing white. Extreme opposites, but there’s just something about white that I adore and I can’t get enough of white shirts: long sleeve, short sleeve, oversized, crop-top, whatever style I just have to have it. 
Yes, i know there are more colors but I just love the simplicity and elegance of a white shirt – you can mix it with any type of bottom and any type of accessory. Works that simple. 
Automatically the white shirt will bring a preppy/clean look to your whole outfit and you will be on point for any type of day-to-night occasion. 
This is my favorite and most chic look with a white shirt, oversized of course! What do you think?
Love,
S

Mi mamá me dice que uso mucho negro – sin embargo cuando no uso negro me encanta usar blanco. Extremos opuestos, pero simplemente hay algo en el color blanco que adoro y no puedo parar de usar todo tipo de camisas blancas: manga larga, manga corta, oversized, crop-top, todo tipo de estilo lo tengo que tener. 
Si, ya se que existen mas colores pero me encanta la simplicidad y elegancia de una camisa blanca – puedes combinarla con cualquier tipo de ropa y cualquier tipo de accesorio. Así de simple funciona. 
Automaticamente la camisa blanca le da un look preppy y limpio a tu outfit completo y hará que estes lista para cualquier tipo de ocasión de día y de noche. 
Este es mi look favorito y el mas chic con una camisa blanca, oversized por supuesto! Que opinan? 
Love, 
S

Oversize it all

The lower the temperature the higher the boots – that is my new motto. Also, the chunkier the sweater… definitely. My skin and body never got use to the extreme low temperatures in the city – no matter how many layers or heat-patches I wore, the cold got me every single time. Thank God for the extra thick modern fabrics! I am amazed that in situations like Fashion Week, no matter the rain, snow or dry-cold air, people will still managed their ways to look fabulous! I personally thought in keeping myself warm, I even had to grab an ultra hot cup of coffee every time and even with that I got compliments – who would’ve known even coffee could be an accessory. Only in New York. 
Luckily I ran away from the cold and came back home – no more layers for a while yet I definitely left a part of me under that snow.
Home is where the heart belongs – I strongly believe in that. No matter what you do or where you do it, sooner or later if its meant to be you will always find your way back. Even as my dad says: “A star will always shine no matter from where you see it.” 
Love,

Uphill battle, I look good when I climb
I’m ferocious precautious
I get crackadotious, I’m not gonna stop
I like the view from the top

You talk that
Blah blah that la la, that rah rah sh
And I’m so done, I’m so over it
Sometimes I mess up, I eff up, I hit and miss
But I’m okay, I’m cool with it

I still fall on my face sometimes and I
Can’t color inside the lines ’cause
I’m perfectly incomplete
I’m still working on my masterpiece and I
I wanna hang with the greatest gotta
Way to go, but it’s worth the wait, no
You haven’t seen the best of me
I’m still working on my masterpiece
