Fading into Summer (Liebster Award)

Hello Geek Q’ers! How is your week going so far? I hope you are all having the best of weeks yet and that you’ve been enjoying the spring weather so far. Here in Seattle, we had an almost perfect week with days full of sunshine and record highs. 70 degrees in April? That’s something you don’t hear commonly here in the Pacific Northwest. Those temperatures are more typical of late June or July, while right now we should be hovering between the high 50s and low 60s. I can’t complain though! It’s good to be able to start to wear my summer clothes even in the early season, and that’s what today’s post is about: how to dress in between seasons, specifically when spring fades into summer.

This is the trickiest part of the year to decide what to wear. Mornings can still be quite chilly, and there’s the occasional thunderstorm in the afternoon, so the right jacket is paramount to not being caught by surprise. My favorite jackets this time of the year are leather jackets, since they are not as warm as a winter coat, and they can get wet and you’ll still be dry. Underneath the jacket, you can wear long sleeves or short sleeves. I don’t mind wearing short sleeve right now since it’s been so hot during the afternoon these past few days. This time I chose a Topman short-sleeve button down, which has a really nice color pattern. As you can see it’s fading from purple to pink, kind of like spring fades into summer. I paired this shirt with my J Crew yellow chino shorts and my Clarks Wallabee boots (relax, they are not made from Wallabi, it’s just the model). What do you think? This ensemble works pretty well all throughout the day, and it looks fresh and has a bit of an edge to it.

That’s all for now you guys. Thank you for stopping by today! It is my 6-month anniversary since I started the new blog, and your support through these first 6 months of blogging has been outstanding. I can’t tell you guys enough times how much I appreciate all your comments, likes, shares, and reads. That just pushes me to try and work harder in my looks and on my posts, and makes me keep going in this journey we all began together. Both this blog and myself have matured so much over these months and it’s all because of you. For that I’m truly grateful. Remember to be stylish and keep your own voice strong. Let’s go for another 6 months together, and many more after. See you next time!

¡Hola mis Geek Q’ers! ¿Cómo les está yendo en la semana? Espero que todos ustedes estén teniendo la mejor de las semanas y que estén disfrutando del clima primaveral hasta la fecha. Aquí en Seattle, tuvimos una semana casi perfecta con días soleados y temperaturas récord. ¿Más de 20 grados en abril? Eso es algo que comúnmente no escuchamos por acá en el Pacífico Noroeste. Esas temperaturas son más típicas de finales de junio o julio, mientras que ahorita debieramos estar entre los 10 y 15 grados. ¡No me puedo quejar! Es bueno empezar a vestir mi ropa de verano aún cuando apenas comienza la temporada cálida, y de eso se trata el post de hoy: cómo vestirse en entre tiempos, específicamente cuando cambiamos de primavera a verano.

Esta es la época del año cuando es más difícil decidir que ponerte. Las mañanas aún pueden ser frías, y existe la ocasional tormenta durante la tarde, por lo que vestir la chamarra indicada es vital para no ser captado por sorpresa por el clima. Mis chamarras favoritas en esta parte del año son las chamarras de cuero, ya que no son tan cálidas como un abrigo de invierno, y se pueden mojar y aún así te mantienes seco. Debajo de la chamarra, puedes vestir una camisa de manga corta o larga. A mi no me molesta vestir manga corta ya que últimamente ha hecho mucho calor en la tarde. En esta ocasión, elegí una camisa de manga corta de Topman que tiene un patrón de colores bastante peculiar. Como pueden ver, es un cambio entre morado y rosa, similar a cuando cambiamos de primavera a verano. Combiné esta camisa con mis shorts amarillos de J Crew y mis botines Wallabee de Clarks (tranquilos, no están hechos de Wallabi, es sólo el modelo). ¿Qué les parece? Esta combinación funciona muy bien para todo el día, y se ve fresco y tiene un poco de edge.

Eso es todo por hoy. Muchas gracias por visitar el día de hoy. Estoy celebrando mis primeros seis meses desde que empecé con el nuevo blog, y su apoyo a través de estos seis meses ha sido impresionante. No les puedo agradecer lo suficiente por dejar sus comentarios, darle like, compartir y leer mi blog. Eso sólo me impulsa a seguir trabajando cada vez más en mis looks y en la calidad de mis posts, y me hace seguir en este camino que emprendimos juntos. Tanto este blog como yo hemos madurado mucho a lo largo de estos meses y es todo gracias a ustedes. Por eso les estoy sinceramente agradecido. Recuerden vestirse con estilo y mantener fuerte su propia voz. Vamos por otros 6 meses más, y los que le siguen. ¡Nos vemos la próxima vez!

A few weeks ago I was nominated by Mira from Admirably Legal to the Liebster Award, and sometime ago I was nominated once again by Damaris from Styled2Z. I want to thank both of you for nominating me for this amazing award, I feel so honored, and now, I get to answer both of your questions and continue the blog love chain on to some of my blogger friends. Hence, I humbly accept the Liebster Award and here are my answers:

What inspires you every morning?

Learning something new everyday. I feel that the moment you stop learning is the moment when you start getting old, so I like to learn at least something new each day. Doesn’t need to be something very complicated, could be a new fact or skill, something about someone you didn’t know before, or something about yourself even.

Where do you go when you need to get away?

My room. It’s really just a space that I feel is completely my own and where I can think without being disturbed.

What is your favorite dessert?

Arroz con leche. It’s a very sweet, Mexican rice pudding with cinnamon made out of milk.

What can you not go without each day?

Laughing! I love to laugh about even the silliest of things.

100 years of solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

The eyes.

What do you like to do for fun?

So that’s it! More about me :). I want to nominate the following bloggers to continue the chain:

And here are your questions:

  1. What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?
  2. What is your favorite cuisine?
  3. What is your favorite movie?
  4. What inspired you to create your blog?
  5. When was the first time you visited the sea?
  6. Ice cream: vanilla, chocolate, or something else?
  7. If you could live the life of a famous person for a day, who would you be? What would you do?

  3. I am slightly obsessed with Kate Middleton. I find it so funny when it makes news that she wore something twice. I love that she is real. Thanks again for the nomination! Oh, also love the leather jacket.

    1. I know right?! She’s amazing! So classy and chic, but she always knows how to give something extra with the accessories (I love when she wears gloves). Thanks for reading and can’t wait to read your answers!
