Out in Public – Pj Pants

Have you ever found yourself not feeling great and having to pull it together and look like a human? Good news! I have the solution for when you’re looking through your closet, wondering what the closest thing to sweatpants is… PJ PANTS! Lightweight, flexible AND sit loosely around your waist… you can’t lose in both comfort and style. The sleeveless vest here doesn’t hurt either (especially since these pants happen to be completely see through) You can dress up a look like this even more with some simple black pumps and a bold colored lipstick.

(oh, and I’m not mad – I apparently just have really bad RBF)

Life Is But a Dream – Iguazu Falls

Iguazu Falls, Argentina via youmademelikeyou.com

Now that the fall chill is actually starting to hit, I’m thinking back to our incredible summer adventures and the amazing “winter” weather we encountered in Argentina.  We got up in the middle of the night to catch a crazy early flight from Buenos Aires to Iguazu Falls, departing from the surprisingly nice Aeroparque Jorge Newbery.  After a 2 hour nap on a brand new plane, we arrived and went straight to the Sheraton, the only hotel inside the national park.  We couldn’t believe our eyes when we stepped outside on the terrace to grab a seat for breakfast – the falls were, literally, right there! The sun was high and it was warming up fast, we got some color while enjoying our cappuccinos and watching the vultures circle the falls for their breakfast.

Let’s Talk About YSL Print Ads and Photography

YSL Saint Laurent pre fall 2014

On second thought, less talking, more staring.  I’ve been in love with these ads for months – beyond just wanting to own everything they picture, I want to live in a world where I can dress like that every day and run out the door to go to some awesome thing on the level of what I’m wearing (oh, and my hair would just naturally fall like that). On several occasions, these photos let me visualize how I was feeling that day and helped me get myself together and out the door.  I need those jeans today… $500 is toootes reasonable… right? … anybody?

Out in Public – At La Recoleta Cemetery

Preppy outfit at La Recoleta Cemetery, Buenos Aires, Argentina via youmademelikeyou.com

There’s something about being in a Latin country that makes me dress a little differently than I usually do.  It’s all about being very put together and even a little preppy – my usual baggy choices don’t really translate. There are also some safety concerns in certain cities (especially for tourists like me!) so the aim is to dress well but not flashy, while leaving the valuables at home.  Buenos Aires in particular was really interesting for fashion – I’m always looking for new things and I certainly found a lot I had never heard of/seen before.  There are very few international chain stores in the city and aside from Zara, Levi’s, Nike and Adidas there was little I recognized. The best part of these new finds was that most of them were from right there in Buenos Aires (don’t worry… more on this later).  For now, photos of an outfit I felt great in while walking around the city, taken at one of the most interesting/amazing places I have ever seen.
