Borrow a long sleeve dress shirt from your other half or any other male figure in your life (brother, friend, cousin, etc.)///Pídele prestada a tu media naranja, un familiar o amigo una camisa de vestir de mangas largas.

Once you put on the shirt, roll up the sleeves all the way to the elbows. Wrap the belt around your waist and pass the end through the buckle and hold the adjuster in place with your finger///Una vez termines the pornerte la camisa, rueda las mangas hasta el nivel de los codos. Coloca la correa en tu cintura y pasa una de las puntas a travéz de la hebilla y aguanta el ajuste con tu dedo

Pass the end of the belt underneath the belt itself and down through the loop you formed///Pasa la punta de la correa por debajo de la misma hacia arriba y luego a travéz de la curva que formastes con la misma

Pull the tip of the belt down at the same time holding the buckle and tighten accordingly///Hale la punta de la correa hacia abajo a la misma vez que aguantas la hebilla y ajusta de acuerdo a tu medida de cintura

ENGLISH/ESPAÑOL

Hello friends! I hope you all  had a wonderful Saturday and that you got to accomplish everything you had in mind.  Today’s outfit is called The “boyfriend” look.  Why?? Because I chose to create a look using my better half’s shirt and his belt too!!!  I am sure many of you may either have a spouse,  a boyfriend, a brother, cousin or even a dad that would let you borrow a shirt (make sure you like it!) and a long leather belt that you can use to create this look.  Make sure the size of the shirt is larger than what you normally use.  It should actually look big on you when you try it on but don’t worry, you will like when we are done! The belt has to be long enough so that you can tie it just like I did in the picture above.  If you can’t find a man’s belt that is long enough,  you can use a waist belt, if you happen to have one.  This outfit looks best if paired with skinny jeans or shorts that are not too roomy or big on you.  You want to keep the look balanced and since the fit of the shirt is already boxy and relaxed it is best if you keep the bottom half of the outfit more fitted.  The pictures above, show you step by step how to tie the belt.  Add a necklace, some bangles and a pair of wedges and you will be ready to rock and roll.  The bag adds the right amount of color to just make you glow:-)  So go ahead my dear friends and work the “boyfriend” look your very own way! It is easy, sassy and trust me, you will also look very, very Hot!  Have a blessed night my dear friends.  Hope you enjoyed the post.  Love, Ms. Jeannie:-)

El conjunto de hoy lo decidí llamar “The Boyfriend Look”.  ¿Y por que?  Porque escogí crear un “look” utilizando una camisa de mangas largas y una correa o cinturón  que pertenecen a mi media naranja (mi amorcito:-)).  Yo estoy segura de que muchas de ustedes tienen un esposo,  un novio, un amigo, hermano o un padre que les pueda prestar una camisa (¡que les guste bastante!) y un cinturón que les permita crear esta imagen.  Asegurense que la camisa sea una talla más grande de la que normalmente llevan ya que esta debe quedar holgada.  El cinturón o la correa debe ser un par de tallas mas grande de modo que la puedan amarrar como lo hice yo en la foto de arriba.  Si no tienen una correa mas grande, pueden usar una correa regular para la cintura.  Esta combinación de camisa y correa de hombre lucirá mejor si la combinan con un par de jeans entubados o shorts que no sean muy anchos o grandes para así mantener el “look” en buen balance y de la misma manera se vean elegante.  Los fotos que están arriba demuestran, paso a paso, como amarrar la correa.  Si tambien usan accesorios como un collar medio largo, dos o tres pulseras y un par de zapatos de tacón alto estilo “wedge” lucirán muy regias y sobre todo estaráns lista para salir y pasarla requete bien.  La cartera añade el toque de color que les hará resplandecer y lucir super fabulosas.  Asi que amigas mias prueben y luscan con orgullo el “boyfriend look”.  Es sencillo y en mi opinión, muy coqueto y les hara lucir super expectacular:-)  Espero hayan pasado un sábado maravilloso.  Muchas bendiciones a todos y recuerden que los quiero un montón.  Ms. Jeannie.

The modified boho look…

Today, is a Bohemian day for me.  Not only have I always been drawn by the easy going and free spirited feel of the boho style but I will admit that in a very special way, I do have appreciation for the bohemian cultural mindset and  lifestyle.  Even though their expression of freedom was a little radical at times, the message bohemians tried to get across was very clear and simple;  be and express who you really are and don’t let others tell you how to live your life.   If you take away the radical aspect of the concept and apply to your daily life the essence of the message  they wanted to convey, you will soon find out that it actually makes a lot of sense.  Just think about it for a second  and you will see:-)  So, to celebrate the “no-worries” attitude that bohemians lived by and that in my opinion, could save us from a lot of unnecessary stress and many body and mind imbalances l chose to create a “modified” version of the relaxed and cool boho look.  In order to keep the experience stress-free and easy, I chose to work with pieces I already owned so no shopping was required.  And why a modified boho look?   Because to enhance the boho style of the dress I used a cowboy hat instead of the typical “floppy”.  To accentuate the waist and pull off the free-spirited feel I wanted to attain, I added a wide leather belt and a multi-layered long necklace I bought many years ago.  The open-toed gladiator style booties are the “in-between”, American Old West and the Boho Chic Era.  The roomy and easy going bag gives you the comfort and convenience to take with you anything needed and go anywhere.  So dear friends, let the free spirited energy of self love and appreciation take its course, allowing us to live a life free of fear, self doubt and worries.  Have a blessed weekend. Love, Ms. Jeannie:-)

and remember…

To always do what makes you happy, not what others think is right for you or will make you happy; happiness is a personal matter.  The knowing of what is best for us comes from within ourselves, not from an outside source or others.

Siempre haz lo que te haga feliz a ti, no lo que otros digan o piensen que es mejor para ti; la felicidad es un asunto personal.  El conocimiento de saber que es lo que mas nos conviene viene de nuestro interior, no de afuera o de nadie.
