If the boot fits...

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

My house literally looks like a winter wonderland!!! Inside and outside!
School was canceled Friday on account of wonderfully copious and powdery snow (which I've yet to go frolic in...)

Because of Friday's school closure I was put into holiday break mode. (aka- adopting slothlike tendencies which consisted mainly of me lounging around the house, accomplishing absolutely nothing, munching on unhealthy christmas-y snacks...y'know, the usual.)

So this entire weekend I've felt like I was on winter break. And, as you can imagine, the dawning realization that I have to go back to school tomorrow is just killing me!! Well, I'm just constantly reminding myself that there's only two days of school to go!

This picture's about a week old...on a day where it was raining, (hence my favorite alligator print rain boots) but since I'd been deprived of internet time the past 2 weeks I hadn't time to post several outfit pics! So you shall be seeing several delayed documented outfits. :D

blazer: Zara
dress.vestido.robe: gift
necklace.collar.collier: gift from grandma, Cortefiel
belt.cinturon.ceinture: vintage
tights.medias.collants: ?

boots.botas.bottes: Cappelli

La cancelacion de la escuela el Viernes por la copiosa caida de nieve aqui en NY me ha confundido un poco y he estado todo el finde pensando que ya estaba en vacaciones navidenas!! Asi que ya os imaginais como reaccione cuando me entere que manana tenia que regresar a la escuela! Ainsss. Bueno, el unico factor que me motiva para volver manana a la escuela es que solo tenemos que ir por dos dias! Y despues ya empiezan oficialmente nuestras vacaciones!! Woo! Estas fotos son de hace una semana o asi (en un dia que llovia, por razones obvias que es porque llevo mis favoritas botas de agua con estampado de cocodrilo.) Y bueno que mi casa parece fuera de un cuento de adas. Estamos rodeados completamente de una nieve preciosa y muuuuuuuuyyy copiosa...pero preciosa!!!

Les cancelations d'école vendredi passé (en raison de la neige) m'ont confondu et ainsi ce week-end j'ai pensé que mes vacances ont débuté !Ainsi j'ai dû retourner à l'école demain ! Mais je seulement dois aller à l'école pendant 2 jours ! Et depuis mes vacances commencent officiellement ! Woo!Les images ont lieu il y a d'une semaine (un jour où il pleuvait. C'est pourquoi je porte des bottes de pluie.) Puisque je n'ai pas eu le temps pour poster mes tenues les dernières deux semaines parce que je n'ai pas eu le temps vous verrez beaucoup des posts retardés !

What a crazy past two weeks I have had! School and after school activities have been consuming my LIFE!! I guess teachers like to just pile on all the work pre-holiday break. With all the truckloads of work I've had to do and all the activities and events I've had to attend to I haven't even had time to check my e-mail! Arg!

The past two weeks have consisted of the following:

  • Copious amounts of schoolwork
  • Essays, projects, more projects, more essays
  • After school clubs sucking me in! and being the president of one of the coolest clubs in my school *ahem ahem* I was even more busy! I was told the day of that I had represent my club and prepare an entire presentation for parents of incoming higschool freshman in less than 2 hours :(
  • Grandma arriving from Spain!
  • Volunteer Ambulance corps christmas dinners
  • Youth court meetings, (i'm interested in pre-law and here we do mock trials, prosecutions, etc to see if law is really our thaaang)
  • Getting really sick, and thusforth missing school
  • Plopping down on my bed absolutely exhausted from all of the above at around 10 or 11 p.m. each night.

So I really do apologize for neglecting the blog for the past two weeks but first things come first!

Anywho, to make it up to guys I thought I'd show you some pictures of what Christmas time is around here in my cherished New York City!


Rockefeller Ice Rink. Right below the Rockefeller Tree.

Radio City Musical Hall.
For any of my fellow New Yorkers
: doesn't this remind you of that overplayed radio commercial: "Bring eeeeevveeeerrryooone yooouu the Radio City Christmaaaaaaaaaaas Shooowwww!!"

Omgz! Duh tree!

This dude was awesome. Too sweet!

Out with the old (2008) in with the new (2009!!)

And of course.....What visit to Times Square would be complete without some butt-grabbing with the Naked Cowboy?

Ahem. Just in case you ladies wanted a....umm.....closeup....

Love Christmas time in my city<3

SPANISH: He estado completamente liada con la escuela estas pasadas dos semanas! Que de trabajos, dios mio! No he tenido ni tiempo para mirar mis e-mails! Arg! Bueno, pues como recompensa de todo el tiempo sin actualizar el blog os muestro estas fotos para ensenaros como es el tiempo de Navidades en MI CIUDAD, NEW YORK CITY!

FRENCH: Pardonne-moi pour mon absence dans le monde du blogging! J'ai eu beacoup de travail d'école à faire ! pour fait et je n'avais aucun de temp! Mais, pour compenser mon manque de posting je vous montrez ces images de MA VILLE.....NEW YORK CITY!

P.S- I will be getting back to all your comments shortly!

Hope all is well!

Gosh, I love Fridays.

Especially CASUAL FRIDAYS! By this last day of the school week my body is drained of creative juices and I'm too exhausted and unoriginal to pull together a great, over-the-top and classy outfit.

So I excuse my feet from heels, and give my tights and skirts a break....and just concentrate on my comfort for once. This Friday, after a lengthy loneliness, I decided to pull out my comfy Nike Shox. My friends were all surprised I was sporting sneakers, ahah. They thought I was possibly coming down with something since I am usually somewhat overdressed for school.

I present to you my ever-faithful Hello Kitty mug (one of two...I have a violet one as well.) I have QUITE the obsession with this adorable little kitten. As my blog grows I assure you you will be seeing more of this cutesey-pie feline.

Chamomile tea is the best to relax after school on a Friday afternoon.

beret/gorrito: j.lo (ducks out of embarassment)
cardigan: primark
shirt/camiseta/chemise: zara
earrings/pendientes/boucles d'oreilles: chanel
jeans/vaqueros/jeans: x2
watch/reloj/montre: guess
sneakers/zapatos/chaussures sportifs: nike

Tomorrow I'm going to graciously gander at the Rockefeller tree and relish in the beauty of New York City during Christmastime.

They just lit the enormous tree two days ago so it is going to be PACKED around that area! Oh well, I'm used to the hubba bubba of the city. Gawrsh, I LOVE NEW YORK. Could I ever leave this place? I think not.

SPANISH: Quando llega viernes, estoy tan cansada y sin nada de inspiracion ni originalidad y siempre procuro vestirme teniendo en mente mi comodidad. Asi que me puse mis Nikes Shox (mis amigas creian que me pasaba algo porque siempre voy vestida mas "formal".) ...y a terminar la semana!

Por cierto, hace dos dias encendieron el arbol de ROCKEFELLER asi que mañana me paso para verlo. Me encanta Manhattan en las Navidades....hay magia en el aire! Ah, TE QUIERO, NUEVA YORK! Nunca te podria dejar!

FRENCH: Tout les vendredis je suis fatigué. Je n'ai aucune créativité ou inspiration pour mes tenus ainsi je m'habille confortablement. J'ai mis dessus mon Nike Shox. Mes amis ont pensé que j'étais malade parce que j'habille toujours plus formel. Haha

Aussi, Il y a deux jours ils ont allumé l'arbre de rockefeller. Demain que j'irai passer près pour le voir. Je t'aime New York !

I'd been wanting to wear this vintage plaid shirt of mine for quite a while now, I just didn't know how to wear it!

So I finally efficiently brainstormed and paired it with my Ezra Fitch 100% cashmere sweater. (Ezra Fitch is like, the heiress or something for Abercrombie & Fitch and designed for them a couple years back.)

Then I added my wonderfully warm black velour pants,
Ralph Lauren silver bangles and a nice
velveteen belt with decorative faux pearls
...and I was good to go!

  • sweater, jersey, pullover: Ezra Fitch (2006)
  • blouse, blusa, chemisier: Vintage
  • white shirt, camiseta blanca, chemise blanc: H&M
  • pants, pantalones, pantalons: Bershka
  • bangles, pulseras, bracelets: Ralph Lauren

Here you can kind of see the faux pearl detailing on the veleveteen's just gorgeous!

Today's my grandma's birthday!! Hoy es el cumple de mi abuela! Aujourd'hui c'est l'anniversaire de ma grandmere!

She's coming from SPAIN for the holidays next Wednesday, I am sooo excited! I love her. She is where I get my style genes and shopaholic tendencies from <3 style

SPANISH: Mi abuela viene de ESPAÑA el proximo jueves! Estoy contentiiiisima! De ella saco mis genes de estilo y mis tendencias de compradora compulsiva <3 style=

FRENCH: Ma granmère viendra d'ESPAGNE mercredi prochain ! Je suis tres contente ! Elle est d'où j'obtiens mes gènes de modèle et mes tendances compulsives d'achats <3

Lately I'd been slightly frothing at the mouth at how many bloggers where sporting all these beautiful short, "camille" like skirts (only with strong patterns instead of solid colors) and wanted to try it out myself. Only I didn't really own any strong statement pattern short skirts.

So I improvised. I folded up a beautiful dress my grandma bought me as a gift when I arrived to Spain this past summer and paired with a yellow ruffled top, some woolly tights and finalized the look with a thick pink belt.

It's great to include random pops of vibrant color in these cold wintery days. (Incidentally, I had to FREEZE MY BUTT OFF to take these pictures.) Oh, the crazy things us bloggers do to get a good picture, am I right?

By the way...December!? Seriously, already?! I can't believe I've been in this school for this long already.

SPANISH: Estaba viendo que por muchos blogs (de moda, claro) las chicas llevaban falditas al estilo "camille" pero en vez de en colores solidos, tenian estampados preciosos y muy llamativos. Al repasar mi armario no encontré ninguna falda que cumplia esos requisitos...asi que improvisé! Doblé un vestido que me regalo mi abuela este verano al llegar a España, hasta que era la medida deseada, lo conjunte con una blusa "babera" amarilla, anadi unas medias de lana gorda, y para terminar el look, un cinturon fuschia.

FRENCH: J'avais vu dans beaucoup de blogs de mode que beaucoup de filles portaient petits jupes (comme camille) excepte au lieu de dans des couleurs pleines, ils ai eu de belles conceptions dans ses jupes. J'ai regardé ma garde-robe pour voir si j'avais des jupes comme cela et moi ne faisions pas. Ainsi. J'ai improvisé ! ! J'ai plié une jupe que ma grand-maman m'avait donné cet été passé, j'ajoute une chemise jaune avec ruches, des collants, et une ceinture pour finir le regard. Voila ! Regarder ma nouvelle jupe!
