Hi everyone, I want you to meet Pedro and Isabela, they got their first modeling job this last weekend: pose to mama and daddy's Christmas card... I don't know if the results are appropriate for family greetings but for sure they can easily be featured here in this blog as my top models! They look much better than mommy, LOL!

Silver Wear

This is the perfect time of the year to wear metallic, even during the day. The glamour, glitter and sequins are everywhere... you can be a little shy and just throw some accessories or really go crazy with it. Just look around and you will see a lot of sparkle everywhere. I just love it and certainly already incorporated the trend.

Puffer Jacket - Noise Proof

I picked this puffer jacket at Forever 21 a while ago just to go to the park with my kids when cold weather hits (I'm from a tropical country so I get cold easily).

This is so soft, supple and doesn't make weird noises that usually puffer jackets do, so I found myself wearing it for other purposes too. Here, I just added a belt and instantly felt a little more dressed up. Don't you love when that happens?

Jacket: F21; Top: J. Crew; Pants: Zara (similar); Belt: J. Crew; Scarf (old): AE; Socks: Target; Boots: Corso Como (similar); Bag: Coach
