Dressed to Chill

When it comes to spending the holidays at home, with just my immediate family, I tend to go for something simple. Not because the occasion isn’t special, but since most of my relatives actually live in Panama we really don’t go all out like most other (Latinx) families do. We keep things pretty low key, unless we invite some friends over, and this year was no different.

Just sitting around reading a book and drinking tea until it was time to cook.

This is why I went with complete comfort over style with this year’s Thanksgiving outfit – just a cute knit sweater and leggings.  I am currently obsessed with this plum/grape shade of purple and Torrid seems to be the one place that actually has anything in this color in my size so this drop shoulder cable knit tunic-length sweater was at the top of my “must buy” list as soon as I saw it online. Other than the color,  I really love the strappy lace up front detail that brings some sass to what would otherwise be considered a fumpy top. Unfortunately this sweater is sold out in this color but the style is still available in black in limited sizes.

Golden Hour Royal Treatment

Since quarantine started, I’ve taken to shopping  for more lounge and sleepwear as I rarely leave the house now. This changed once fall came around and I found myself styling more outfits even if it is just to go around the corner to pick up something from the supermarket. And I’ll admit that sometimes I over do it, like this time, but its still nice to dress up every once in a while, even if you literally have no special event or place to go.

Disney-ween 2020

One of the things I had planed for Halloween content this year was a series of closet cosplay and some vampire-inspired fashion. Unfortunately, the pandemic caused major delays in shipping  and most of the items I bought actually wouldn’t make it to me in time for Spooky Season.

So my plans shifted a bit and I decided to still style some looks based on an entirely different theme – Disney! As a 90s kid, obviously I’m a major Disney fan, particularly of their animated features and I thought this would be a great way to have some fun with fashion and fandom. I challenged myself to style these two outfits with items I already own so I’ve made a point to include links to similar products just in case you wish to recreate either look this Halloween or just for cosplay at a later date. If you like these, be sure to head over to my IG for some more DIY Disney-inspired costumes/cosplay I’m sharing this week. 

Snow White

This first look is a recreation of a costume I once owned which is what inspired me to do this project to begin with. Snow White is one of the first Disney films I recall ever watching as a child and I loved it enough to ask my mother to get me the costume to wear when I was 5 years old. My father even organized a photo shoot session in our house, complete with a plain blanket backdrop,  that year for me to model the costume. I remember just having so much fun being a princess for a day and wanting to look perfect.

Clearly not much has changed in the 25 years since, hahaha.

At the Pumpkin Patch

This weekend, not only was I able to get brunch with two of my dearest friends after 8 months apart, but we also got to go pumpkin picking for the first time ever at a local farm. I love this time of year because the colder temperatures let me wear some of my favorite staples like my faux leather jackets but also because I get to eat pumpkin-flavored food. Yes, I know that is totally cliché but whatever, I love pumpkin.
