SEASONS FAVORITES: PLAID & BURGUNDY

 

plaid

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,

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.

Just because summer is ending it doesn’t mean your love affair with cheerful and vibrant colors must end as well.  In fact, with autumn right around the corner I see no reason to hang up your Summer Brights for good. Instead, you can easily transition your favorite summer brights into the upcoming season.

Thanks for visiting! xx,

Top: Forever21 (similar here) Skirt: H&M (loving this one) Heels: Zara Glasses: Chanel

The possibilities are endless when it comes to a black skirt, yet you don't want to have it looking dull or boring. I'll let you on a little secret, this skirt wasn't always a skirt, I've transformed it from skinny waxed jeans into this super chic midi! I've always loved being creative and I'm constantly sewing and customizing my gear. If you don't sew just head to the nearest tailor and have them do the work. Think of all those items that are idly hanging in your closet, an old dress perhaps, you can alter it into a cute skirt. You'll be surprised how your wardrobe will suddenly expand!

I can't wait to share with you some of my creations on the blog!

Thanks for visiting! xx,

Dress: Forever21 (also loving this one I found on Ebay)

Sandals: Steve Madden (similar here) Bag: Topshop (similar here)

I'm all into breaking the rules when it comes to my wardrobe (some rules were made for breaking, right?!) In this case it's the floral maxi dress I've always loved and I wear year round – pairing in the fall with a light cardigan or even in the winter with a chunky sweater.

Thanks for stopping by! xx,
