How Soon Is Now

Back to basics black.

Temperatures aren't particularly warm these days in Quito, su unfortunately an umbrella and a warm scarf are essential. Admittedly, I wanted to show the lovely world map wall poster I got on a shoot, so here it goes. Also, I can't seem to find the excuse to NOT wear my hat, which I've been using practically everytime I go out (not school obviously).  Moreover, I wanted to put a whole black outfit together but my heart belongs to those army green skinny trousers from Pull & Bear, so the "all black everything" thing isn´t going on in this look. Finally I managed to wear this vintage black chiffon blazer that was formerly from my mom, haha, with a floral print sweatshirt beneath that balanced the whole look. On a side note: The Smiths is pretty much everything I've been listening to lately, (hence the title). 

La temperatura no está tan cálida especialmente en estos días en Quito, así que por desgracia un paraguas y una bufanda caliente son esenciales. Es cierto, yo quería mostrar el póster del mapamundi que mandé a hacer para mi pared, así que aquí va. Además, me parece que no puede encontrar la excusa para no usar mi sombrero, que he estado usando prácticamente cada vez que salgo (no la escuela, evidentemente). Por otra parte, yo quería ponerme todo un outfit negro , pero mi corazón pertenece a los army green skinny jeans de Pull & Bear, así que la cosa "all black everything" no estará por ahora. Finalmente logré llevar esta chaqueta vintage de gasa negro que fue anteriormente de mi mamá, jaja, con una sudadera con estampado floral debajo, la cual da el balance perfecto a éste look. En una nota lateral: The Smiths es todo lo que he estado escuchando últimamente, (He ahí el título).

Casual Wish-listing

Is adding clothes to my wishlist a talent yet?  Been looking for inspo these past weeks, so decided to go to one of the most popular but affordable shop among fashion bloggers... 

Some of the things I've been putting my eye on (and constantly clicking on) are these gorgeous sweaters. Being a full time student leads me to having just the right amount of money to spend on clothes and the sales on this site makes it so easy for my wallet. I pretty much put my hands on everything burgundy (hence the title of the blog, duh), besides, the Dios sweatshirt is lovely for spring, the blue sweater's perfect for winter.. and I know we're just about to hang in & out with summer but hey, $19,82 is a total bargain.

Plus, my spring/summer essentials are on point at this site. Floral print, stripped long-sleeves, lovely pastel oversized coat and last but definitely not least.. burgundy velvet dress because, why NOT?

Then of course, the lovely jackets I casually found on my endless wishlist at SheInside. Some people have been asking me where to get a nice parka, at an affordable price, because let's be real, they're all above 70 bucks and such... and here's the better option mates, retailing at $45.80. A massive need for a human being is to own a fur coat, and this is the perfect one.

If you want to check these products out, just click on each of them. Besides all of these amazing designs, they have accesories, jewelry.. etc. Hint: the scarves are on point. xx


My thoughts on Leonardo NOT winning an Oscar, you ask? Think my dicaprio-obsession is way more enormous than my love for Dallas Buyers Club...but let's get back on to business. We had 4 days off of school since Carnival came up, so my family and I decided to go to the nearest beach, Tonsupa. (Ecuador)It's always nice getting a breath of fresh air and just listen to Ben Howard while watching the waves crash against the rocks. Been doing some thinking about my future..which involves the realization that this is reality, and that my fellow readers hits me every time. 
A few of the shots I took today... 

Lo que pienso sobre Leonardo No ganando un Oscar, se preguntan? Creo que mi obsesión-dicaprio es mucho más enorme que mi amor por Dallas Buyers Club ... pero volvamos a los negocios. Tuvimos 4 días de descanso en el colegio porque el carnaval llegó, así que mi familia y yo decidimos ir a la playa más cercana, Tonsupa. (Ecuador) Siempre es bueno conseguir un soplo de aire fresco y simplemente escuchar a Ben Howard mientras observo el choque de las olas contra las rocas. He estado pensando en mi futuro (rutina) .. lo que implica el reconocimiento de que éste preciso momento es la realidad, y eso me resulta sumamente abrumador.
