Hello everyone!!! Hope you're enjoying a wonderful weekend.

Right not it's 5:47 in the afternoon and it's quite cloudy and gloomy here in Guatemala City, which in fact is kind of perfect for just staying home, relax and rest because when it's sunny and wonderful outside one always wants to be enjoying the outdoors involved in energy absorbing activities.  I'm so tired after such a busy week that I'm really looking forward to Easter because my mom, aunt and I are going to Antigua for a bohemian week (ok, MAYBE not that bohemian hahaha we don't smoke marihuana and or drink absinth and we do take daily showers. For me being bohemian means dressing in maxi dresses, sandals, head scarfs, ethnic jewelry and walking all over the colonial city taking pictures and talking to complete strangers at coffee shops, real coffee shops not the Amsterdam kind).  Antigua has some of THE best restaurants in all Guatemala so I'm really looking forward to going to a couple of them, Italian, Greek, French, Japanese-Latin fusion, Thai, you name it, we have it all in such a small place.  Also, since I started this blog I haven't read ANYTHING!!! And I'm a reader, I read a lot so this means I'm gonna have to make some time for blogging AND reading next week. 

Anyhow, on with today's topic. On our first MARINIERE post I shared some ideas on how to wear "La Mariniere" a la classic, romantic and relaxed. Today it's all about wearing your cute little stripped shirt a la elegant, dramatic and sportive. Amazing how versatile this iconic shirt is!!! I could keep on going with outfit ideas, but of course we need to move on to other topics. However if you'd like me to share more outfit ideas with you guys I'll gladly do it, just let me know. 

Again, if you like anything you see you just need to go to and make some online shopping hahahaha it's easy as that.

So, enjoy and let me know which one is your favorite. Are you a classic, romantic, relaxed, elegant, dramatic or sportive?
