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

Crop It Up

Top: Nastygal / Skirt: Zara / Necklace: Serendipia Accesorios / Sandals: Zara 


For a nice walk in the park is always good to wear something comfortable and in this case, light weight – oh summer time hot-madness! I spent this weekend with my cousin in Alerces Park here in Mexico City and what-a-weekend we chose to spend outside with the heat above our head. 
For that I decided to step out of my comfort zone and wear my typical black and white midi skirt with this Nastygal black crop top I haven’t worn in forever! Yes I might not have the best abs but I love myself as I am and I love playing more with my clothes – adding pink sandals to a kinda-formal outfit was a challenge and not so convincing but hey! I needed some color and nothing better than nice summer sandals to wear for a walk in the park so why not! I was like my personal touch.
Always dare to play your game different, never settle with common. 
Love,

Para una caminata en el parque siempre es bueno usar algo cómodo y en este caso, ligero – Oh la locura del calor de verano! Este fin de semana me la pasé con mi prima en Parque Alerces aquí en México y que buen fin escogimos para estar afuera con el calorón en nuestra cabeza.
Por esta razón, decidí salir de mi zona de confort y usar mi clásica falda blanco con negro pero con este top de Nastygal negro que no me había puesto desde hace mucho! Así es, tal ves no tenga los mejores abs pero me quiero a mi misma y me encanta aún mas jugar con mi ropa – agregar sandalias rosas a un outfit semi-formal fue un reto y tal ves no tan convincente pero necesitaba agregar algo de color y que mejor que unas sandalias lindas de verano para ir al parque! Fue como agregarle mi toque personal.
Siempre atrévete a jugar tu juego diferente, nunca te conformes con lo común.
Love,

Burning RED

 Top: Zara / Jeans: AG Jeans / Bag: Danielle Nicole / Shoes: Sam Edelman
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,

The Comeback

Shirt: Quinn / Skirt: H&M / Shoes: BCBGeneration

A great sunny afternoon deserves a quick post. I came back from New York to spend time with my family, hang out with my boyfriend and catch up with my lifetime friends – now that we cleared that out it’s time for a come back. 
This is my “in-between-decisions-vacations” post, or at least that’s how I call it. I’ve been taking time for myself between home and the RGV, but now I’m ready to take over once again – this time from the beautiful Mexico City! My grandma says I’m never steady… I say, I am at the right moment, at the right time and at the perfect age to not stay steady. Taking chances and opportunities as it goes it’s the most rewarding feeling and, win or loose, the experience of the adventure to the unknown is what makes my life worth it and happy. 
Here at The Street Styler, you will probably see outfit twists and even more colorful backgrounds with the beauty of this city, and even though it will be a challenge at first, I’m sure there’s a lot more to come. 
Hello Mexico!!
Love,
S

Hola México!

Top: H&M / Pants: Quinn / Shoes: Forever21 / Necklace: Serendipia / Bag: Zac Posen
Finally back in Mexico! Actually, first time for me in Mexico city which is way different than the north. Feels so good to, after some chaos, get away and enjoy the simple things in life for a couple of days: Nice weather, delicious food and a good outfit without layers!
I love the fact of mixing oversized sweaters with sandals – it is about keeping the outfit interesting and not so cliché. When you have weather around the 60’s it is a must to play around with it. 
Love,

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,
S


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
