Hi guys! In honor of all the colorful outfits I've been making for my Rainbow Challenge, I thought it would be fun to put together a wishlist of Rainbow goodies! Aren't these items just so cute?! I'm especially obsessed with the cloud heels and the rainbow Mac keyboard. In fact, don't be surprised if these items mysteriously find a way into my closet some time soon ;)

Hi guys! For the 6th day of my Rainbow Challenge, I went with the color orange! I wore this colorful outfit for a relaxing day at our house in El Valle, in the countryside of Panama. It always feels great to get away from the city and just relax in the midst of nature.

To be completely honest, I spent most of my time trying to catch up on my blogging stuff, hehe. It is sometimes really hard for me to sit back and take time off for myself. I did manage to squeeze in a nap or two as well as catching up on some reading, so I felt good that I relaxed at least a little bit ;)

Para ser completamente honesta, pasé la mayoría de mi tiempo tratando de ponerme al día en mis cosas del blog, jeje. A veces es muy difícil para mí relajarme y tomar tiempo libre para mí misma. Sí logré sacar un tiempito para tomarme una siesta y también para leer un poco, así que por lo menos pude relajarme aunque sea un poquito ;)

Today's outfit post was also inspired by Shari's Berries #SweetStyle Project! The challenge was to make an outfit inspired by Berries, so I mixed and matched different shades of red to get this outfit that reminds me of strawberries and raspberries :)

El outfit de hoy también estuvo inspirado en el proyecto #SweetStyle de Shari's Berries. El reto era crear un look que fuera inspirado en diversos bayas, así que combiné diferentes tonos de rojo para crear este outfit que me recuerda a fresas y frambuesas :)

Thursday March 20, 2014

Hi guys! For the fourth day of my Rainbow Challenge, I decided to wear the color pink! Ok, I don't even know how to explain in words how much I love this outfit. Lets start with the insanely adorable pink dress with a Chococat print (that's right, those are cats!! adoraaaabbleee!). Next there is this super cute book clutch with a word bubble on it (um, adorable!). And I finished it off with my favorite cat watch (love it!). 

-- En Español -- Hola chicos! Para el cuarto día de mi desafío de Arco Iris, decidí usar el color rosado! Ok, en verdad no sé ni cómo explicar con palabras lo mucho que me gusta este outfit. Empecemos con este vestido adorable rosado con un estampado de Chococat (así es, esos puntos negros son gatitos! Adoraaaabbleee!). A continuación tenemos este clutch en forma de libro con una burbuja que dice "Shh" (eeehh, adorable!). Y terminé el look con mi reloj de gato (que me encanta!).

I decided to wear this cutesy outfit out to dinner with Alejo to a restaurant in Casco Viejo called Grapes. I had heard that Grapes served an excellent steak (which they did!), but what really surprised me were the fries. I don't usually order french fries, but these were cooked and tossed with some sort of herb that made them taste so fresh and unique (delish!). It was the perfect dinner to enjoy while sipping on glasses of wine. What a lovely evening it was indeed ;)

Decidí ponerme este outfit "cute" para ir a cenar con Alejo a un restaurante en Casco Viejo llamado Grapes. Yo había oído que Grapes sirve una excelente entraña (lo cual es cierto!), pero lo que realmente me sorprendió fueron las papitas. No suelo pedir papas fritas, pero éstos estaban cocinados con algun tipo de hierba que les dio un sabor muy fresco y único (deliciosos!). Era la cena perfecta para disfrutar mientras nos tomamos unas copas de vino. De verdad fue una velada maravillosa :)

Wednesday March 19, 2014

Hi guys! For the third day of my Rainbow Challenge I went with the color purple!! Considering how much I love colorful clothes, I was really surprised to realize that I actually do not own that many purple pieces in my closet (One exception is that purple dress I wore the other day!). So I ended up wearing this trendy purple dress that has cool cutouts and a cute birdie print. 

-- En Español -- Hola chicos! Para el tercer día de mi desafío de arco iris, decidí usar el color morado! Teniendo en cuenta lo mucho que me encanta la ropa colorida, me quedé muy sorprendida al darme cuenta de que en realidad no tengo muchas piezas de color morado en mi closet (Una excepción es el vestido púrpura que llevaba el otro día!). Así que terminé poniéndome este vestido morado con recortes a los lados y un estampado lindo de pajaritos.

I love how this Ralph Lauren blazer instantly makes this outfit look more polished and preppy. Plus I got the chance to wear these fun printed heels that I've had for almost 10 years now. I can't believe how long they have lasted!

Me encanta cómo este blazer de Ralph Lauren hace que este outfit se vea mucho más profesional y "preppy". Además, hoy tuve la oportunidad de usar estos tacones estampados que compré hace casi 10 años. No puedo creer que estos zapatos me han durado tanto!

Tuesday March 18, 2014

Hi guys! For the second day of my Rainbow Challenge, I decided to dress in my favorite color: blue! My mom surprised me with this pretty blue dress a couple of months ago and it has been sitting in my closet waiting to be worn (sigh, the story of my life); so it felt great to wear it today! Decided to pair it with all blue things including blue accessories and shoes because you can never have too much blue right?? hehe ;)

Hola chicos! Para el segundo día de mi desafío de arco iris, decidí vestirme de mi color favorito: azul! Mi mamá me sorprendió con este lindo vestido azul hace un par de meses y ha estado colgado en mi closet esperando a ser usado (la historia de mi vida, haha); así que me sentí muy bien al por fin usarlo hoy! Decidí combinarlo con diferentes tonos de azul en todo el look incluyendo los accesorios y los zapatos, porque nunca se puede tener demasiado azul no?! jeje ;)

{Rainbow Challenge}: Green St. Patrick's Day Outfit!


Monday March 17, 2014

Hi guys!! For the 1st day of my Rainbow Challenge, I decided to start with the color green for obvious reasons (it was St. Patrick's Day, duh!). When I was looking through my closet for some green clothes, I came upon this adorable Bambi tanktop that I haven't worn in aaaaages and thought: "Why yes, I could use some more Disney in my life!" (as if I don't already have enough, haha). And that my friends is how this outfit came to be :)

Hola chicos!! Para el primer día de mi desafío de arco iris, decidí empezar con el color verde por razones obvias (era el día de San Patricio!!). Esta mañana cuando buscaba en mi armario qué piezas verdes tenía disponible, encontré este top de Bambi adorable que no me he puesto en siglos y pensé: "Porqué no?! Yo podría usar más cosas de Disney en mi vida!" (como si ya no tuviera suficiente, haha). Y así fue como este outfit llegó a ser :)
