Confession time


Hi! My name is Patti and I can't stop buying sweaters.... A while ago I told you about this article on how we wear "uniforms", meaning that we tend to use the same clothes because they suit our style, body, etc, etc... The other day I realized how many sweaters I own and it is crazy! but i can't stop! I came to the conclusion that my uniform or basics when getting dressed would be a sweater mixed with jeans (skinny, boyfriend, doesn't matter), flat shoes and a scarf. This can change to a skirt in stead of the jeans, or boots or heels instead of the flats, a trench or jacket and so on... This pic is just a sample of it... 

Now, I came up with the idea to use a hashtag so all of us can show our uniforms! What do you think? If you want to share them on Instagram, let's use the #theuniform and I'll share them in the Facebook page of the blog.. Let confession time begin ladies!

Hola! Mi nombre es Patti y no puedo dejar de comprar sweaters... Hace algún tiempo les conté sobre este artículo sobre como sin querer usamos "uniformes" o ropa que va con nuestro estilo o queda bien con nuestro tipo de cuerpo. El otro día me dio pánico ver cuantos sweaters tengo!!! lo peor es que no puedo parar!!! Al final creo que mi uniforme sería un sweater, jeans (skinnies, boyfriendo, lo que sea), una bufanda y zapatos planos. El uniforme cambia a veces porque me pongo falda o vestido, o una trench o un saco, botas o zapatos altos pero la idea siempre es la misma y para muestra les dejó la foto del principio.

Se me ocurrió que todas podríamos compartir nuestros uniformes usando un hashtag en Instagram, ¿qué les parece? Al final podría compartir sus uniformes en la página de Facebook del Blog.. Si se animan pueden usar el hashtag #theuniform ¡Que comience la confesión!

I.N.O.X.

Challenging limits.





When you hear the word 'Victorinox' several adjectives can come to your mind: durability, elegance, quality, renown, technology. There is no doubt in the world that the swiss brand has built a name of its own during the last 130 years. To celebrate such a special occasion can be hard if you have done it all... How else can you exceed all of your creations? The answer: I.N.O.X., a timepiece echoing the unique values of the famous Swiss Army knife: authentic, robust and reliable in all conditions.

Intensively tested under extreme conditions (high and low temperatures, pressure, water and fall conditions, to name a few), the I.N.O.X watch pays tribute to the brand's history and honors the stainless steel's (inox in french) material strength, durability and resistance to corrosion.

                    

Available in three colors, black, navy blue and khaki green; all of them guarantee to maintain its shape, the internal pieces and the whole watch at its best. Check the official video in the Victorinox website for more details and fall in love with it in case you haven't yet.


I partnered with the brand to write this article but every word is mine
