Hi guys!

I am so glad I finally sat down to write a post. I have been procrastinating on this post for weeks now. Today, I decided I would get it together, take care of my blog, and post!

As you guys know, I just started a new job so I've been busy with that, and my family is now visiting for the holidays, so in between work and family it gets a little hard to find the time to post. But here I am, ready to share my latest Fall look in collab with darling Alia, the talented photographer who also shot a look from a previous post.

blanket-scarf, rings, & booties: Primark, dress: SheIn (here)

I've worn this blanket-scarf and booties almost every day since September. The booties are super comfortable to walk in and the scarf makes me feel like I'm still in the comfort of my bed. I just can't take them off.

I hope you liked this look!

Oh, and I haven't come up with a good giveaway idea yet... Still thinking.

3rd Blogiversary!!!

Hi guys!

As some of you may know from my Instagram account, it was Instant Milk's 3rd blogiversary last week! YAYY!!!

It definitely feels like it's been less, after that long (approximately 9 month?) hiatus I went through, without posting last year. A lot of people wouldn't believe it, but blogging requires a lot of energy, time, patience and team-work to come up with content/ideas/images that are interesting enough to post. So, I am pretty impressed that I've been able to keep it up until now. I use my blog as an outlet to my creative needs, something that my day-time job doesn't really allow me do.

...And of course my partner in crime, Melissa, was up for the challenge of creating some cool anniversary photos.

dress: Shein (here), sandals: Asos

This pink dress is meant to be worn the other way around, but I really like how it looks backwards. So, technically I have two dresses in one;)!

I have been thinking of doing a giveaway for the blog's anniversary, but haven't figured out what the gift would be yet. I'll think of something for the next days or week and hopefully share it on my next blog post.

I hope you have an amazing week!

film noir

Hi guys!

I hope you had a fun Halloween (if you celebrate that). I was really bad this year, and came up with a few ideas of what to dress up as, but had no concrete ideas until the very last minute. I ended up dressing up as Cleopatra. I threw on a white lace dress, some gold accessories, and just focused on the face. 

If you would like to know how that came out, click here.

Today's post isn't Halloween related, but it is dark, so I thought it would be great to share at this time. Every time Melissa and I get together, really creative things happen. This time, we did something with film noir feels. These shots look like they're straight from a glamorous crime drama.

dress: thrifted, choker: Anne Klein (birthday gift), rings: Primark

I love this dress because it's so simple and elegant. I always top it off with a fun necklace.

What do you think of this?

Hi again!

This post and outfit was fully inspired in the colors of Autumn. I could have said "Fall", but I love the word "Autumn" so much, I had to throw it in there.

For me, this is the perfect autumn/fall outfit, for so many reasons:

First, I am wearing a scarf that I adore, and that my mother-in-law made for me a couple of years ago, out of the most beautiful yarn I had ever seen. It is so thick and big, it's more like a blanket scarf. I love it, and it's one of my favorite ones (if not my favorite). 

Second, I am wearing one of my favorite vintage acquisitions, my beautiful YSL kitten heels (which you might have seen on older posts). 

Third, I am wearing a mustard turtleneck dress. Besides burgundy and green, I think mustard is the perfect color for fall. And, turtle-necks... pretty much everything I wear for fall and winter. From these pictures you can probably tell that I don't wear turtlenecks just because they're warm, but also because I love how they look. By the way, just in case you were wondering, no, this dress is not warm at all:).

  Yellow-1IMG_4165 Yellow-3 IMG_4138 Yellow-2 IMG_4169
dress: SheIn (here), shoes: vintage YSL, scarf: family present and handmade, rings: Primark

I hope you guys liked the pictures as much as I did. It was my first time working with Alia (the photographer), and she was such a sweet and cool girl! 

Let me know what you think!

bathtub series: bleu

Hi guys! 

 If you have been following my blog for the past month, you know that I did a beautiful bathtub series collaboration with Melissa. We even did a BTS video (which you can find on my previous post). I love the incorporation of fashion with conceptual/creative content, and every time Melissa and I get together, magical things happen!

On this third set of the bathtub series, I am wearing a dress by AKA which you might remember from last year's post (here). I believe they don't have it on their website anymore, but they have a lot of other cool stuff, so I would definitely check them out.

Also, notice how I paired the dress with My Kitsh jewelry, just like I did last year, but with completely different pieces.

I hope you enjoyed and let me know what you think:)!

bathtub series: BTS

Hi everyone! 

I hope you are having a great Friday. I just thought I'd share with you the BTS video of my bathtub series in collaboration with Melissa!

I've already posted two of the looks from this series. If you haven't seen them yet click here, and here. If you have, then, I can't wait for you to see the rest:)!

Let me know what you think, and have an amazing weekend!

Hey guys!

If you live in the US, you probably know that Primark launched its store in Boston a couple of weeks ago. It was all over Twitter and Instagram. I even read some tweets from across the pond, saying how jealous they were of our beautiful, four-story-tall store. And I agree, I would be a little jealous if I didn't live in Boston too! We're so lucky to have the first Primark in the US!

I did a few shopping trips to Primark. During one of those trips, I got the awesome popcorn bag and  set of rings that I'm wearing on these pictures. The popcorn bag was more like love at first sight. When I saw it, I knew I had to have it!

The bag was only $9, and the rings were $4.50 (I'm only wearing 3 rings out of the 8 that came in the set). Yep, you can do a lot with just a little cash!

Melissa and felt very inspired by the popcorn bag while doing this shoot! What do you think of it? Do you like it as much as we do?

bathtub series: jelly

Hi everyone!

Here is the second set of the bathtub series. Although I love them all (and still haven't posted a couple), I have to say this is probably one of my favorites.

I've been meaning to show you this beautiful one-piece swimsuit from Meyli Miyaru for over a year now. I was only able to share a picture on Instagram last year, but every time I tried to shoot it it would just get colder and colder. 

Meyli Miyaru designs very dreamy swimsuits, with one-of-a-kind prints. You won't see their stuff anywhere else. They have this jelly fish swimsuit on sale (because it's now from their old collection), so you can buy it for a lot less. 

Definitely do check their new designs out. They are beautiful.

swimsuit: Meyli Miyaru (here),  accessories: My Kitsch (also available in 14k gold here, here, here, and here)

Again, loving how my Beyond the Stars Y necklace looks! They now have the same necklace with a marble stone, and it's so beautiful.

I hope you liked this one, and can't wait to share the rest of this series with you:)!

bathtub series: skies

Hi guys!

It had been a while since I wanted to do a bathtub shoot. I had seen some on Pinterest and Instagram and felt inspired by them. I wanted to grab the idea and give it my own twist. There is nothing better than wanting to create something special and see it come to life, and even exceed your expectations.

I had been exploring the idea with other photographers, but it wasn't until I met Melissa, that I felt confident this project would come out great. I don't think I need to explain how talented this girl is. You just have to see for yourself :)

swimsuit: BlackMilk (from many seasons ago), accessories: My Kitsch (also available in 14k gold here, here, and here

This BlackMilk swimsuit is one of my favorites. I wear it as a top as well, and it definitely catches a lot of attention. I love the sky and grass detail on it. The colors are just so bright and beautiful. I wear it during fall with dark jeans and a leather jacket, and in spring/summer with lighter things. It just has so much potential.

I am also loving my Beyond The Stars Y necklace. The clear rock detail is so minimal and clean. It goes well with anything. I've been wearing it a lot, as you can see from my past posts.

Hope you like this!

I'm looking at these pictures and thinking "man, I really do need a haircut!", and "I'm loving my tan... I hope it doesn't fade away too fast", also "wow, my style really has changed". 

That last thought prompted me to look back at my older posts and just reflect. Hitting my mid 20s has made me think a lot about my past, my present, and my future. The way I used to be and the way I am now. I've always found dressing up as an artistic outlet to my emotions, thoughts, and way of perceiving life. So, I believe that the way I feel inside is directly correlated to the way I dress. 

I could go on and write a whole essay about how I feel my life has changed and how I am starting to set up new kinds of goals in my life. I just think time is of essence and we don't have much to waste. How cliché is that? As cliché as it may sound, it probably is the biggest truth we have.

Now, this doesn't mean I threw away all the clothes I've bought these past five years. It just means I wear them, but in a different way. I still like to feel fun, sexy, and feminine. But, above all, I want to feel me, or at least, the present me. It's something that I like to think of as me growing as a person.

If you've followed me for a while, you know how much I love a good background. This isn't the first time I take pictures in front of a historic house. Last year, I did a Cinco de Mayo post in front of this beautiful, historic (teal blue?) house. 

This time, I took pictures in front of a house I always walk by, and that has intrigued me for years. It's the James Blake House, the oldest house in Boston, built in 1661. If you're from Boston and want to read more about it, click here.

I never felt the courage to walk into it by myself, but Cynthia and I were feeling a little adventurous that day. Plus, did you see all those beautiful flowers? How could you stop yourself from going in?

I hope you enjoyed!

Hi guys!

Although everyone is talking about how summer is over, I don’t feel like it is yet. I know, I know! I named my last post “last days of summer”, but have you checked the weather forecast? At least here in Boston it’s going to be pretty warm for the rest of the week. That only means one thing: I’ll be going to the beach as much as I can before it's over. It won’t be fall until I feel the need to wear a light jacket.

On the other hand, I do enjoy wearing fall clothes, but without leaving summer behind. I like slooowly transitioning by wearing summer clothes like tank tops and shorts, with fall clothes like midi skirts and three-quarter sleeve tops, or just really anything that doesn't remind me that we're only one season away from winter now.

Have I ever mentioned that green is my favorite color? I keep finding myself adding green details to my outfits without even noticing.

Hope you guys like this:)
 Stay in the sun!
