Sweater Weather

Good morning Everyone and happy Thursday! How is your week going so far?

I just wanted to say a quick hello and share a few images of my new favorite high neckline sweater, another great staple for my Winter wardrobe. Aside from the fact that I love a good knit for the cold season in general, this one just happens to be one of those perfectly oversized, warm and cozy-as-a blanked perfections of a sweater. Since the weather drastically cooled down this past week, I’ve been pretty much wearing it non-stop.

For today’s look I paired it with my old favorite over-the-knee Mjus boots and an woolen midi skirt.

The Button-Down Dress

Hello Everyone and happy Sunday! How is your weekend so far?

This button-down dress from Zara is by far my new favorite!

There’s something so irresistibly casual and effortless about it, so versatile, easily dressed up and down. A long sleeved chiffon dress tied around the waist looks great with flat shoes and a massive bag for casual days or with heels and a clutch bag for a more sophisticated look.  Leave it loose and untied around the waist if you’re going for a boho-chic style or yo’re thinking of layering it up with a denim or leather jacket.

Winter Wrap

Good morning Everyone and happy Monday! How was your weekend?

I was searching for a very long time for a perfect long wool blend cardigan and I’m very glad to say I’ve finally found it!

A simple long line cardigan can work wonders for your wardrobe during winter. Not only is it perfect for throwing on just about anything, it’s also great to have on hand when the temperature drops. To keep cosy this winter layer a striped shirt or dress and tights under a long knitted cardi, wrap yourself in a chunky scarf and you’re good to go!

Crisp White

For me, there is nothing like a crisp white top: a white blouse is the top closet basic every woman should own because it’s one of those true wear-anywhere that just always works.

Whether you pair it with a black skirt for the office or with blue jeans for the weekend, it will always be “in”.

If you already own the classic button down shirt maybe it’s time to add to your wardrobe a beautiful white blouse with a twist. The particular top I am wearing in today’s post is new and definitely one of my current favorites. I just can’t get over those amazing sleeves!

The Red Trench Coat

Hello everyone and happy Sunday! I hope you all have a great weekend so far.

The trench coat is such a classic and essential piece that’s perfect for all occasions, especially rainy weather. Fortunately, there are many inexpensive and cute trenches in stores right now, but finding the right one for you can take some time. I fell in love with this cherry red topper from Zara the moment I saw it! I choose for red because it works with many colors: black, white, grey, navy and camel (also a great pairing is red and blue or red and olive). I think two is a good number of trench coats to own. I recommend going with one in a classic color (tan, khaki, stone or beige) and a second in a high-impact color that makes you happy and works with the rest of your wardrobe.

Simply Stripes

Good morning and happy Wednesday, Everyone! How is your week going so far? 

 I just wanted to say a quick hello and share a few images of my new favorite pullover.  Since the weather cooled down in this past week, I’ve been pretty much wearing it non-stop, dressing it up or down depending on occasion. For today’s look I choose for a super relaxed yet feminine silhouette.

Red & Blue

Good morning and happy weekend, everyone! How is your weekend going so far?

I just wanted to say a quick hello, and share a few new images from yesterday’s shoot.

Today’s look is yet another one of those outfits comprised entirely of my current old and new favorites. I am absolutely in love with this pair of cropped slim-leg jeans from Esprit in my favorite shade of red. If you read my  blog on the regular, you may have noticed that I’m a big fan of this brand. I decided to combine the jeans with a royal blue cropped woolen turtleneck and matching color block scarf . Finally, I added a plaid shirt and a pair of white sneakers.

Velvet Black & White

For today’s look I’m back in my favorite black and white! If you’ve been following me for a while, you may have noticed my style varies from very feminine to slightly masculine. I never really know which of these two I’ll be inclined to wear! Sometimes, especially during the spring and summer months, I get up in the morning and can’t wait to wear my girliest outfit and other times, I am all about sharp tailoring and edgy accessories. You know me, I’m a sucker for pussy bows, I always look for those “special little extras” that add a bit of charm and character, and make everyday favorites even more special.

This stunner of a velvet jacket I scored at a vintage store a few years ago and I’m still madly in love with it!

Dusty Pink

Good morning, Everyone and happy Wednesday! How is your week going so far?

It looks like my black moment is coming to an end. I wouldn’t say it’s completely over but I am definitely feeling like wearing more color again. And all thanks to the wonderful Zara blouse and Esprit pair of trousers I am wearing in today’s post. I actually have a weakness for this particular shade of pink.

Over-the-Knee Boots

Good morning and happy Sunday, everyone! Hope you’re enjoying your weekend! I wanted to say a quick hi and share a few  new images from our day trip to Eindhoven, yesterday.

For today’s look I’m back to black, wearing a warm turtleneck under the deep v-neckline oversized dress, patent leather jacket and my favorite over-the-knee boots.
