I’ve never found myself drawn to the non attached embellished collar trend. I’ve never even owned one, but I do like DIY projects and changing the purpose of something out of its original use. So, I decided to make my own collar from a top I never got around wearing. Here are the steps of how I achieved the look, try doing your own at home it’s really fun! enjoy and thanks for reading! xx,

SIMPLENESS

Sweater: Zara (similar) Skirt: Forever 21 Hat: Forever 21 Heels: Aldo

I hate looking too over done and I try to keep it simple therefore this outfit just came right together for me, the different textures of the knit and skirt really work to dress down the look. I really can’t get enough of this hat, I just got it and I already wear it all the time, It’s really great for bad hair days- that’s probably the main reason why I love it so much…  you guys have a great week!! xx,

SEASONS FAVORITES: PLAID & BURGUNDY

Laid-Back & Casual: Scarf / Cardigan / Skirt / Boots

Preppy & Edgy: Jacket / Blouse / Skirt / Shoes

At this moment I’m having a crush over Plaid and burgundy – not necessarily in the same outfit, although they compliment each other in a nice way. I put together two ways two wear this trend, I equally love the result of them both. Thanks for stopping by! xx,

COMFORT ZONE

IMG_7068Dress: Mango  Cardigan: Mango Boots: Aldo (on sale!!) Hat: Forever21

I’ve always loved that warped up nestle feeling, this cardigan I just picked up at Mango is amazingly soft, I seriously feel like I walked out in a blanket, might also have to do with the fact I took a large for extra coziness.

I love changing up my look and I do it quite often and as much as I love feminine styles I always find myself attracted back to my “comfort zone”- relaxed and loose pieces, that is when I feel most confident,  if you bump into me in the street you’ll probably find me in this kind of look…

I was just talking in my last post about a crisp shirt and here you find me in a wrinkly dress, well I guess it gives a bit character to an outfit…right?! xx

Skirt: Old  Shirt: Zara Boots: Aldo (on sale!!) Bag: old (similar here)

I guess it’s about that time to put away the sandals and take out the boots, and when I say boots I mean these Aldo ankle boots I got last spring and never actually got the chance to wear, I really love them and I know I’ll get a lot of use out of them on the cold days to come. what I also love is a crisp white shirt, I can wear it every day although after a few hours I start feeling like I’m in a box and want to break out, plus I hate steaming so I don’t wear it that often, I actually don’t know a single sole on this planet who likes steaming… in fact a few years back I entered an ironing contest and I won, why would I even go to an ironing contest?!? haha.

Have a great week! xx,

THE LOOK FOR LESS: Ankle boots

Booties

     Rag & Bone– $495    Forever21– $37

Hey guys! I’d like to introduce “The look for less” series for those of us who won’t justify splurging on one single item…

Alors, to get started we have the ankle boots which are such an excellent transitional piece into fall, I love ankle boots, they convert anything you wear into a cool effortless look and you can basically wear them year round- fall, winter & spring. These Rag & Bone ankle boots are fantastic and seen all over lately, but the nearly $500 price tag doesn’t work for me, therefore I was super amazed by the nearly identical Forever 21 version I came across on their site for a fraction of the price and for a girl on a budget they are a great alternative.

Xx,
