Peace. Love. World - Swim Week Event

Wednesday, July 26, 2017

I got this dress without trying it on first...yes totally my fault. I saw it hanged at Target and grabbed immediately as a piece I knew I could wear during Swim Week.♀️

I grabbed it because I loved the print and fabric but there was something about it that just felt "boring" on me- I think it was the neckline (a little too round, the buttons where grand-ma is).

 After an hour of playing with it in the mirror (I added belts...tried wearing off the shoulder, backwards...but nothinggg), it finally came to me: why not add an edgy bralette, my favorite faux leather shorts underneath, and only close the button at the waist? 

I liked the result and I'm happy I didn't give up on it (because I was about to return it)! Don't be afraid to rethink the pieces you already own or the ones you buy.

I saw a friend wearing it over jeans and it looks SO good. Also open like an over the shoulder, I'll give it a few tries to do a remix and show you that it is all about creativity!ūüĖ§

Este vestido lo compr√© sin probarmelo. Yo se yo se, ¿qui√©n me manda!?  Cuando lo vi en el gancho de Target, me llam√≥ mucho la atenci√≥n pero es que me lo imaginaba diferente.

Lo agarr√© porque me encanta el estampado de puntitos y la tela es ligera perfecta para el verno. Pero el cuello es muy redondo, lo cual con los botones lo hace ver un poco de abuelita en d√≠a de misa. 

 Quer√≠a pon√©rmelo para un evento durante #SwimWeek, y lo intent√© todooo ( agregar cinturones, abrir los botones para que quedara como si fuese con los hombros al aire, al rev√©s...) despu√©s de una hora haciendo un desastre en mi closet ( y sala y cocina), quise usarlo como si fuese un kimono/cardi.

 Abr√≠ todos los botones dejando solo el de la cintura cerrado y agregu√© un bralette con muchas tiritas, y mis shorts favoritos ! Me alegra no haberme rendido con este vestido porque me sac√≥ de mi zona de confort y me oblig√≥ a verlo de otra manera! ¡Atr√©vanse a jugar con las piezas de que tienen/compran y s√°quenle todo el provecho!

With such a incredible group of Miami  (and out of town) bloggers and influencers.

These pictures are from the Peace Love World event  which officially kicked off Swim Week.

Let me tell something about this Miami-based brand. It was founded by Alina Villasante, born in Cuba and raised in New York and Atlanta. Alina intricately threads philanthropy into PLW's business plan, championing her favorite causes including breast cancer awareness through Susan G. Komen For The Cure and a shelter in Haiti for disabled and abandoned children.

"I have always wanted to do something like this, to tell a story, to make a difference," says Alina.  What's next for Ms. Love, aka Alina Villasante? To stay the course, and continue to spread the "universal message of Peace, Love, and Happiness.

The event was super chill and laid-back. The view from the house was amazing. There was yummy food and drinks.

We also got to preview the Fall collection and I'm already in love with some pieces. Maybe you saw it on my IG, but there is a baby pink denim jacket that is LIFE! I will get it and you will see it in the upcoming months in the blog.

Hope you like the photos, more to come from Swim Week! XOXO

El evento fue super tranquilo, pero con una gran compa√Ī√≠a.  A mi me encanta Swim Week porque es una de las pocas ocasiones donde todas las bloggers de Miami (y varias que nos visitan) estamos en el mismo lugar.

Tambi√©n tuvimos la oportunidad de ver piezas de la colecci√≥n de oto√Īo/invierno, y me enamor√© de varias. Hay una chaqueta de jean rosadita que me enamor√≥. La ver√°n en el blog en los pr√≥ximos meses.

Espero que les hayan gustado las fotos. Les mando muchos abrazos y besos.
