2021 FASHION TRENDS TO INVEST IN!

Hello everyone,


Who here is ready for some FASHION? I ammmmm!🙌 (too excited, I can't even hide it!)

Wanna know what will be trending in 2021? What pieces we should invest in right from the beginning? Also, I've got the heads-up on the pantone color of the year. It's extra special because this time two colors will be a HIT in 2021 instead of just one. Any guesses which shades? 

I know in 2020 fashion was a bit repetitive and predictable because of Covid-19. It came unexpectedly, and with that, the last thing we really wanted to focus on is what we're wearing. There is no promise that 2021 will be any different, but it's good to hope, want and dream of being able to actually wear these trends. I want for us to be able to experiment with our looks just like old-times. Having our imagination run wild with various fabrics, plenty of accessories and fun details. 

Speaking of fashion trends, it's save to say that I love this time of year where the new comes in leaving the old behind. I get just as excited...seeing, reading everything that will help me apply the new trends into my own personal style. It's like starting a maze, with trial and error you're able to come to a happy outcome. 

Before I get deep into this post, I'm ready to spill-out the pantone colors of 2021. They are gray and bright yellow!💛






1. Neutrals 

Think in "earth tones" once the clock strikes 12:00...beige, ivory, taupe. These shades have been making a statement all-along, but this time even more. Full-on neutral monochromatic looks will be "a thing". For example, choose a cream shade and wear it from head to toe. The whole outfit will be a power statement within itself and people will most likely start to wonder what magazine you came from. 

This trend is like music to my ears because it's got all the positives. A monochromatic look has the ability to make you seem taller, slimmer and like you mean "fashion", if you know what I mean.😉

Will you be investing in any new neutral pieces?
    

2. Sweater Vest

Who remembers owning a sweater vest wayyyyy back. I hope I'm not the only one. I wore them lots as a child and guess what? They're bringing their "COOL" back in 2021. Literally, one of these understated pieces, which can be styled over dresses and blouses. I already know, this is a trend I will be investing in and soon sharing with you on here. 

I love the way a sweater vest adds a fun notch of layering. I mean, I love to play with layering. Any chance I get, I grab it! It can be styled under a coat or a blazer during these colder days.  

The sleeveless knit is taking 2021 by the horns. Love it or hate it, it will change our style in more than one way. How do you feel about this trendy piece?
   

3. Bold Prints

Are you ready to be BOLD in 2021?

Lots will be happening when it comes to fashion with the clashing of different prints. Mixing and matching is allowed, even highly encouraged. And size does matter! Remember, the bigger the print the more maximized you'll look. You can combine larger prints with neutrals for a more subtle and less intimidating vibe. A balance that will definitely work! Plus, you'll be rocking two significant trends in one.

One of the bold prints we'll be seeing very soon (spring time) is the "fantasy florals". The name represents new beginnings, which fits perfectly with our desire for starting fresh. I have always been a fan of florals. It's the one print I always go back to once spring/summer arrive. I can't help it! Florals mean a lot to me...make me so happy!
🌺

4. Wide-Leg Trousers

In 2021 we're going to transition from sweats into wide-leg trousers. The comfort is still there, but now we'll be looking a bit more put together. Bottoms that are practical and make a statement. This way we can simply ease into actually starting to wear pants again. YAY! And you know what, I think going for looser pants is going to be a breath of fresh air in the new year.   

One of my favorite ways to style them is with a crop cozy sweater. I like a wide leg trouser that is also high-waisted. What kind of trouser design do you envision wearing?

Don't forget, this style of pants is a gem because they elongate your legs and give you a few imaginary inches in height. So many reasons to love them!💗
      

5. Second-Skin Tops

To top off the 2021 fashion trends, we've got the second-skin tops. They're super stretchy and a perfect layering piece. I really love the classy mesh styles or the ones with turtleneck peeking out. I've got a zebra print top, which fits both criteria and I can't wait to style. How would you style yours?

These fashionable tops do really feel like a second layer of your skin. Makes you forget that you're actually wearing something! 😂

So how do you make this top look cool? By layering it...under a tee or with a sweater vest over it. I can always show you a few ideas in a future post, if that's something you would like to see?
 

So are you looking forward to trying these fashion trends in the new year? Which one are you MOST excited for?

FAVORITE LOOKS OF 2020!

Hello everyone,


This year was so unexpected, yet an interesting one when it came to fashion, beauty and overall the change of our daily lifestyle. Some things turned upside-down, others felt similar/safe like the years before. I think we can all agree that 2020 was the year of growth, with personal changes testing our fears/limits. It was inevitable that we went through it. So here we are just a few days away from welcoming the new year! Are you EXCITED?

A fun way to conclude the year is by looking back at some of my favorite outfit looks. The styles that made me think "YES, I will wear this again" and "Ohh, I feel good in this". I like doing this kind of post as a way of saying goodbye to the past year and mentally preparing myself with fresh new ideas for the blog in 2021. You can help me out by letting me know what you want to see more of, here on FashionRadi?🤗


My selection is from all the seasons with spring, summer...Vegas fall and winter. Most definitely a big chunk of my favorite styles come from summer because I love dressing in bright colors, having tons of boho jewelry pieces, and basically treating summer like one long beach vacation. It's my absolute favorite! What's your favorite season when it comes to dressing? I even told Santa, once I open-up my gifts, I'm ready to move on to summer!!!🤣 

Here we go! 









When in comes to fashion, I feel like 2020 was the year of loungewear. Plenty of comfy sets in every kind of shade have been selling like crazy. The one "home" statement we all started reaching for once the March lockdown began. However, even during these months, I was eager to get in florals, wear flowy dresses and get out and shoot these looks while the streets were the emptiest I have ever seen them. It turned out pretty good, as I really got to stay away from purchasing new clothing and unite my brain cells into creating unique looks straight from my closet. 

Also, as I look back 2020 was the year of tie-dye, oversized tops/bottoms, puffy sleeve tops, the always sexy leather pieces, more funky prints and a whole lot of "I wish I could go out, so I can wear this". What was your favorite 2020 trend? Be sure to come back next week to the blog because I'm going to share with you a few top trends happening in 2021.😉 It's about to get even more fun and interesting! 


So what's everyone looking forward to in 2021? 

To say farewell to this year, I want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who has been part of my blog...whether you're one to comment or come here every Tuesday to read my latest post. Through this blog, I have made some of the most sincere friendships (even though we may not have met in person, yet). Have the happiest of holidays and I'll see you again very soon!😘

BEST ROAD TRIPS OF 2020!

Hello everyone,


Hands down the best thing about 2020 was the fun road trips I got to do with my sister. In this post, we're going to end the year with a lookback at my favorites. Each trip was very unique on its own. This reminds me most of them were taken during the hottest months in Vegas. However, the adventure was there and the experience was so interesting. Are you ready for this road trip journey? 

The journey began when Covid-19 hit. My sister and I, wanted to be in nature, to hike more often, to see different sights and to take photos along the way. That's why we decided during the pandemic to get in the car and use the free weekends we had for some road tripping. This is how the idea for my road trip series came about. I hope it continues in the new year as well! Did you do any road trips? If so, which one sticks-out to you as the most memorable?



One of the most amazing national parks there is in California. I recommend visiting it because it's full of gorgeous stops. You've got the salt flats below sea level at the Badwater Basin. The above photos are from there. Also, there are breathtaking sand dunes, colorful rocks called Artists Palette, plenty of hiking trails, mysterious sailing stones and so much more. It's huge, so I recommend staying in for a weekend or more, so you can really explore the whole park. 

We made the trip there last weekend for one day. Took the drive early morning and got back after sunset. The two places we got to see were the fascinating Badwater Basin and the beautiful Artists Palette. For the rest, we'll definitely go back. There is plenty more to be seen and we can't miss all the photo opportunities.

Death Valley is absolutely a favorite road trip of mine. I didn't expect it to be this stunning and grand. This is why I give it the number one spot! Have you been?



An absolute paradise! Lake Tahoe was a true gem. We treated it as our summer vacation because we had the lake to swim in and the majestic mountain views to look at. For that this road trip completely sparks good vibrations just thinking about it. I wish I could turn back time and relive it once more!

When we got back, I remember I was so eager to add it to my road trip series. I created a detailed travel guide of Lake Tahoe, so if you're interested on where to stay to what places to see while there, here is the complete post

One thing that stuck with me from this trip is how much we humans crave change, having different experiences. It really wakes us up and gives us a fresh kind of hope and energy to continue learning, exploring and growing. Evolution is part of life!     
 


This place is literally...FIREBALLS! The first time we road tripped there, it was on one of the hottest summer days. That was a bit crazy, but so are we! hahaha Eventually, we wanted to finish what we started, so a few months later, my sister and I made a second visit. This time around we were able to fully enjoy the vistas along the way.

I would say most parks take more than one day to explore, so camping would be ideal to disconnect from the world and connect with nature. I'll let you know how it goes, once I attempt my first camping trip. Hopefully in 2021, I will be ready for it! What's something you want to do in 2021 that you're a bit afraid of?       



Another very memorable trip in 2020 was visiting Cathedral Gorge. Its got the most awesome clay formations and plenty of hidden caves to explore. This place is a favorite of mine because not only is it gorgeous, but it's a photographer's paradise. Every way you turn, you can let your camera dance.

The drive to Cathedral Gorge is one of the most scenic. No matter how tired you may be, you'll want to keep your eyes open just to take in the small towns, the green fields and the rocky canyons. 
 



And finally, here is a lookback at the sand dunes, which made this road trip too crazy. Why? Because it started out with some car trouble. I share the whole story here! This event made the trip there way entertaining and now looking back...a bit funny!

This was the first road trip we took that really got us into the idea of road tripping together and discovering new places. That was our way of focusing on something else than the pandemic and trying to make the most of 2020. How did you cope with this year? Aren't you glad 2021 is only weeks away?

Well, that is it for now! Hopefully, I'll see you with more road trips in the near future. The series must continue! Have a wonderful week!!!

HOSTING A HOLIDAY PARTY: TOP ESSENTIALS!

Hello everyone,


How will you be spending this holiday season? Are you or someone you know planning on hosting a 2020 appropriate (small) party? The happiest celebrations of the whole year must continue and bring us together. It's MY FIESTA...and you're invited to it!!!🥳

Today we're going to play the music loud, get dressed-up, give our table some holiday cheer, and most importantly, don't forget to shave the mustache...hahaha🤣(just kidding). I'm just testing you to see if you're still reading!

The holidays really are the most wonderful times for sharing laughter, memories, telling stories and being close to the ones you love. Don't forget to add yourself to the list first because you're just as valuable. I highly hope this post makes you excited! More so, I hope it gives you ideas on ways to decorate your dinner table or even ideas on what to gift someone who is hosting a party. Whether you're the guest or the attendee enjoy the moment, the time, the food, the people and the tequila shots. hahaha ARRIBA, ABAJO...( I'm sure you know the rest!). SALUD!🥂


To be honest, I haven't hosted a holiday party yet, but it would be a dream because I'm a dj at heart. I can turn up the party and know plenty of good music that can make others dance. Yessss, I said it! You can book me as a dj at this number...(XXX)-XXX-XXXX. But really, I like parties and connecting with others. This fuels me up to a point where it's hard to fall asleep later! hahaha
🙊

Ok, enough about my many skills, let's get to the essentials you'll need to host your BEST party yet!
 

Before setting everything up, I would suggest having some kind of idea for the color theme of your table. What colors do you want to combine? I love red and gold together! Also, green and silver would compliment each other nicely. Choose shades that will make your guests feel the holiday spirit the minute they enter your home.

Here's the checklist of items you'll need:






Now that we have our checklist, we can focus on the details. For example, have some candles and festive ornaments or garlands at the center of the table. Turn it into a magical scene, which will bring joy and lightness to your home and everyone who's there. Then, set up the drinks, desserts and small bites. Here you can really express your creativity and love for the holidays.
🎉 

When it comes to holiday decor, I'm one who might go a bit overboard with the decorations. The way I see it; you get the holidays only once during the year, so why not really go for it?! I can imagine I would be the same if I were to host a holiday party. How about you? Are you more classy, simple or do you like to keep it busy and fun? 

Also, you can see the look I came-up with right in time for the holidays. I'm definitely going to dress-up even if I end-up spending the holidays at home this year. I'm head over heels for tops with puffy sleeves. The bigger the sleeves the happier I get! Another favorite is leather. Chic, sexy and will never go out of style, so this high-waisted skirt without a doubt had to be part of the look. Do you know what you'll be wearing? If you want me to do a last-minute party outfit ideas post, do let me know.   

Happy Holidays from me to you!!!
🎄 I hope these last few weeks of 2020 are merry and sweet for you and your loved ones!💕
