Hi all!
I am here today thanks to Missy who has this wonderful blog. I am so happy to be guest
blogging in it. Let me introduce myself: I live in Madrid (Spain) and I have a fashion
and beauty blog called A Violet In The Snow. It is a blog where I try to give
ideas or tricks that I think might be interesting from a personal point of view. I hope you
like the outfit I have prepared for today.
This is my way of following the jungle trend. The green jeans with zippers contrast
with the more feminine blouse. In my opinion the color of the pants match the color
and pattern of the shirt. I think that everyone should try to adapt the trend to what suits
your style and flatters you the most. That´s what I tried to do today. As for the shoes,
I decided to use this nude ones. They are so wearable. Also I have always loved the
Green-nude combination.
In the jungle there is always a fierce animal. In this case I have brought my
boxer “Rocky”. It is a good watchdog but it is also the most loving and beautiful dog in
the world!

Turquoise and Pink

Necklace c/o Jen Hoodenpyle, Tank from H&M, Sandals from Target, Leggings from NY&Co, Bracelet from Miravera, Bandeau top from Aerie, Bow from Icing
This is an outfit I wore the day after I came back from Boston (so just this past Saturday). It was so hot out, nothing felt better than to wear my new bandeau top and and breezy tank! 
I recently purchased 3 of these bandeau tops from Aerie for just under $5 each, and I’m obsessed. I love the different colors and how comfortable they are to just throw on under tanks, dresses with low backs, and tees. I plan to wear them with high-waisted skirts and blazers this summer too.
I wish I could just live in tanks and leggings! I don’t know about you but it feels just as comfy as pajamas. I haven’t sported a hair bow in awhile, so I figured I’d go for it! I was so excited when I noticed that the pink is the same as my new messenger bag. It’s the little things 🙂
Hope you all are having a wonderful week!

Tribal Shorts

Shorts from H&M, Express tee, Vintage bracelets, Fedora from PacSun, Flats c/o Ballasox, Oscar de la Renta sunnies
Just purchased these shorts while in Boston and I can’t get enough! Nothing beats comfort plus a fun print. I plan to live in them all summer and wear them with neon tanks and anything else I can find! 
I wore this outfit for lounging and lunch today. It was the perfect temperature after the thunderstorms rolled through this morning. Although I love the heat, today was perfectly comfortable at 77 with a little breeze. 
These flats are incredibly comfortable. They came in a cute little bag (see my instagram @popofstyle) and fold up for easy storage. I can see myself packing them for the wedding I’m going to this weekend. My feet have definitely learned their lesson after cramming into heels all of last week. These babies have built in silky socks and cushions to make your feet extremely comfortable. I’m loving the python print!
I’m not ready to go back to work after the gorgeous vacation time I’ve had but it will be nice to see everyone again! Hope your week is going well 🙂
