Christmas Inspiration ♥

Bye Bye October! Hello Christmas!

Every year after Halloween I get all my Christmas stuff out, it´s impossible not to get excited for the holidays, as the stores start bringing merchandise earlier each year. I visited my favorite stores for some holiday inspiration, and who knows I may have some done damage. 

How beautiful is this angel?

I wanted everything on this display.

Pretty ideas for your home.

 Thought I might inspire you with some of cute looks from my favorite bloggers. One my favorite has to be the plaid blazer. So in love, you know, I went to Zara to get one but they were out of the style I wanted.

Anyways, doesn’t something feel different in the air? I´m dying to pull out all the Christmas stuff! But guess I’ll be waiting till November. 

When do you put your Christmas tree up?

How We Can Do Fall In The Tropics

Fall in the Tropics

Fall in the Tropics by estiloandcafe featuring a pleated skirt

It´s officially fall! I wanna go apple picking, grab some PSL, and start wearing sweaters and warmer clothes. Yeaaa right! I wish! We will definitely NOT be wearing warmer clothes for a few more months, and with global warming who knows.

But here are some ways you can do fall without wearing layers and boots. My favorite has to be animal print and incorporating black for day. I honestly don´t know how people can wear so much black in our summers. I mean this in casual situations, outside of work and night attire. I feel so hot just looking by at them.

How do you do fall?
