STRIPED SUMMER DRESS

STRIPED SUMMER DRESS

Hi guys! How’s your week going so far?

Mine’s going really good, a lot of work and events planned every night but that’s good! So much fun, it doesn’t feel like work at all, but your body gets tired of not sleeping at some point lol.

I’ve been thinking about how it’s been a while since I wrote a thoughtful post. Truth is, that I’ve been posting all these outfits and haven’t really paid attention to my writing because I barely have time to do so, and I want to apologize for that and make it up to you right now, by sharing a little bit of what’s been going on.

It’s so easy to get caught in a routine and to forget about what’s really important. Truth is that, even though I’ve been so so happy for the past months, I’ve been feeling a little numb as well. Just living everyday without doing much thinking about the things that matter the most. Don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful for everything I’ve been doing, but lately I’ve been avoiding (on purpose) thinking about all the things I have to do with the blog after Summer is over. Honestly it feels overwhelming, but at the same time I’m super excited to be part of a lot of exciting projects and another growth season for me as a person.

I know I sound a tiny bit bipolar lol. Anyway, just wanted to share how I feel and how scared I am right now. A lot of emotions going on… I can feel how big things are coming and that really freaks me out.

Last week I had my first TV interview with Scene Network and I was so nervous! It was crazy, but once the interview started and the cameras recording it was like I was born to be in front of one. Never experienced something like this before and to be able to discover new things about me, my gifting and my purpose in life has been an incredible journey. Can’t wait to see what happens next.

Ok guys, that’s all I have for now! Now, let’s talk fashion. Isn’t this dress the cutest thing ever?

It’s from the Lookbook Store and it’s only $25! Summer’s not over yet and this piece is one to live in during hot humid days like we’ve been having in Chicago. I have a feeling that Autumn will start in October this year, so I’ve been secretly wishing to have at least six more weeks of warmer temps around here.

It’s going to be hard for me to say goodbye to this amazing season, but at the same time Fall is the prettiest time of the year in Chicago (In my humble opinion of course) and new seasons always bring good things. It’s just like washing the old to welcome to the new.

So tell me, any thoughts on this dress? (Direct link at the end of this post)

Thank you so much for stopping by and for reading my blog. I’ll never get tired of saying that I don’t take any of this for granted.

Enjoy the rest of your week!!

XO,

Hola a todos!

Como va su semana hasta ahora? La mía como siempre bien ocupada con trabajo y ademas tengo eventos casi todas las noches esta semana. Me encanta ir a eventos de moda y comida, eso es mas que todo a lo que me refiero cuando digo “ir a eventos”. Es una oportunidad para conocer gente nueva y ver a mis amigas que la mayoría son otras bloggers.

He estado pensando en como tengo bastante tiempo sin escribir un post así como a mi me gusta. La verdad es que he estado tan ocupada que no he tenido tiempo y solo me he preocupado por colocar outfits sin hacer un update de las cosas que me han pasado o que estoy viviendo y quiero disculparme por eso.

Ultimamente he estado atrapada como en una especie de rutina. He estado disfrutando muchas cosas que no había podido hacer, y a pesar de que entiendo que es lo mas normal del mundo después de haber pasado meses dedicándome a sanar heridas viejas, hacer tantas cosas todos los días sin descanso no me ha permitido sentarme a trazarme un plan para ejecutar las metas que tengo para estos próximos meses. Ojo, no me mal interpreten, estoy super feliz y super agradecida de tener la oportunidad de vivir lo que ha sido (hasta ahora) el mejor verano de mi vida, pero a la vez se que he estado evitando con toda la intención del mundo sentarme a planificar las acciones que debo tomar para cumplir mis metas de esta temporada que se avecina.

Se que sueno un poco bipolar, pero bueno así es como me siento. Parte de ser mujer supongo… Vivir emociones intensas y diferentes unas de otras y todo al mismo tiempo. Puedo sentir como vienen grandes cambios en mi vida y para ser sincera, me asusta un poco, eso es todo.

La semana pasada tuve mi primera entrevista para TV con Scene Network y fue una experiencia única. Estaba demasiado asustada y de repente cuando se prendió la cámara y empezamos a hablar se me quito todo! Y se sintió tan bien, tan correcto, que me sorprendo muchísimo. Siempre le he tenido terror a las cámaras y a hablar en publico, pero ahora de alguna manera siento que eso tiene que ver con mi propósito en esta vida. Todavía me parece increíble que a mis 29 anos este descubriendo cosas de mi misma que hasta a mi me sorprenden. Supongo que es parte de la vida y de seguir creciendo.

Bueno, sorry que me extendi un poco pero quería compartir con ustedes lo que estoy viviendo ahorita.

Ahora, vamos con la moda! Desde que vi este vestido la primera vez sabia que tenia que tenerlo! Es demasiado lindo y a la vez sexy y esa combinacion a mi me encanta! Ha sido perfecto para estos días tan calientes y húmedos que hemos tenido en Chicago. Que les parece?

Es de una tienda online que se llama Lookbook Store (El link directo esta al final del post) y solo cuesta $25! Mejor imposible! El verano aun no se ha terminado y ha estado tan caliente que creo que nos quedan aun unas buenas 6 semanas con este clima, así que a este vestido ahora es que le queda uso! Ademas que es super clásico y  definitivamente lo voy a usar en anos próximos o para algún viaje (que espero poder hacer) a un lugar caliente durante el invierno.

Va a ser super dificil para mi despedirme de este verano tan espectacular que he tenido, pero a la vez es parte de la vida despedirse de las temporadas que pasan. A mi me encanta otoño, y con mucha nostalgia dire adios a este verano que ha sido tan bueno conmigo, y le dare la bienvenida a una nueva temporada que estoy segura sera increíble también.

Mil gracias por visitar mi blog! Se los he dicho mil veces y no me cansare jamas, pero no doy nada de esto por sentado y cada día que pasa me siento muy agradecida de poder hacer lo que amo y tener esta plataforma para expresarme!

Gracias por leer! Disfruten el resto de su semana 🙂

XO,

    This dress is so cute! I love the cut out and tie front details! I know what you mean sometimes you just wanna live in the moment and not think about the future. But sooner rather than later you’ll have to to deal with things!
