I love how the stores gradually begin to change colors with the new 2014 spring-summer collections. And Benetton is no exception. Last week I swung by to see what I could take me home with me and I found this beautiful dress in placid blue, another color from the 2014 Pantone color palette for spring 2014. It was definitely irresistible and I used it almost immediately, on Wednesday for a meeting on several projects of which I will tell you about soon. It is a very versatile dress since I can use it for both, a more elegant look, as well as for a more relaxed look. This time I decided to wear it in a more formal look in order which was appropriate attire for the meetings I had to attend. I combined it with a mini bag from Nine West that I had tucked away for just this type of occasion and which creates a beautiful contrast with the blue dress. I’m also planning on wearing it in a more relaxed look with sandals and a comfortable hairstyle for a summer afternoon. I hope you like today’s look and thanks for visiting the blog. Xoxo.


Me encanta como las tiendas poco a poco se llenan de color con las nuevas colecciones de primavera-verano 2014. Y Benetton no es la excepción. La semana pasada me di una vuelta a ver qué podía llevarme a casa y encontré este vestido en placid blue, que es otro de los colores de la paleta de colores Pantone para la primavera 2014. Se me hizo irresistible y lo usé casi inmediatamente, el miércoles pasado para unas reuniones de proyectos de los cuales pronto les contaré. Se me hace súper versátil ya que puedo usarlo tanto para un look arreglado como para un look más relajado. Esta vez un poco más arregladita para estar presentable en las reuniones, combinándolo con una mini bag de Nine West que tenía guardada por ahí y la cual crea un contraste lindísimo con el celeste pastel del vestido. También tengo planeado usarlo con sandalias y un peinado más relajado para una tarde de verano. Espero les guste mi look de ahora y gracias por visitar el blog. Un beso.
