My Essentials

Hello Everyone and happy (almost) 😉 weekend! I hope you are all enjoying your Friday! 

I love the classic look! That’s why  today’s blog post is dedicated to not one but three (!) wardrobe classics: the beige trench coat, the relaxed fit jeans and the white blouse. For me, these items are the workhorses of any well-dressed woman’s wardrobe, providing the foundation for many outstanding looks.There’s something so effortlessly chic about  these classic and timeless key items! And let’s be honest: you can never go wrong with a beige trench coat and a pair of jeans.

 I think it’s definitely worth investing some money in these closet essentials, because they will never be out of style – promise!

Double Leopard

 

Good morning Everyone and happy Thursday! How is your week going so far? I just wanted to say hi and share a few new pictures from last weekend.

 

In my opinion, the only thing better than leopard print is… double leopard print! I really love animal prints, they have such a fun effect when they’re mixed and matched. To balance the volume of these two patterns, I made sure to mix in a lot of neutrals and basics to make this fun outfit super wearable.

 

And, can we talk about puppy Jolie for a second? She really steals the show today, isn’t it?

Pink * Feminine Energy

One of the most popular colors for Spring 2017 is pink. Dusty pink, candy pink, baby pink, raspberry, fuchsia, peach, magenta and deep cherry pink provide a pretty new way to see fashion through rose-tinted glasses.

For today’s look I paired this beautiful  MbyM  trench coat in dusty salmon shade with a pair of  flared jeans and sneakers for a casual look . I absolutely love the  maxi quilted scarf in the same color, it really elevates the whole look to another level.

Sequin Denim

Good morning Everyone and happy Sunday! I just wanted to say hi and share a few new images from ous visit to the Vlindorado butterfly garden, yesterday.  

Last week I noticed  these pair of jeans (with reversible sequins on the front!) in  the H&M online store  and just couldn’t resist the urge. I mean, I never had a pair of sequin pants before but what a fabulous  item to have in your closet!

Sequins are undergoing a major comeback, so be on the lookout for more of it soon! For this look, I decided to pair the jeans with a black ruffle top. To finish off the look, I chose black ankle boots and an oversized bomber jacket.

You have to remember though that sequins are a big statement. So it’s imperative you keep the rest of your look very minimal and stick to neutrals.

What trends do you spy being a big thing in 2017? Let me know in the comments below!

The Biker Coat

Good morning Everyone and happy Monday! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

If there’s anything I’m loyal to in life, it must be warm, fluffy outerwear – a part of my daily uniform that gets me in the mood to go out and face the cold winter months. The biker teddy coat I’m wearing today manage to give any outfit an unexpected twist and edge and at the same time make you look cute and cozy.

I paired the coat with a Nordic  sweater and black mini skirt and decided to have some fun with my shoes. I love my new Lost Ink loafers because of the soft and light muffin bottom and the pretty bows. These are definitely winners for me! To complete the look and bring a pop of color, I went for bright lips and handbag.

The coated denim

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

 I just wanted to say a quick hello and share a few images of my latest obsession, this silver coated H&M denim. I think streamlined & sleek, lacquered denim is the easiest way to add a luxe, polished touch to your wardrobe without sacrificing comfort. You can make your pair work appropriate by wearing them with a relaxed button up or a smart, tailored jacket. Add a structured pretty bag and a smart pair of heels for a look you can take from office to street.

The Long Plaid Coat

Good morning Everyone and happy Sunday! There’s no doubt that the worst of winter has arrived, bringing sub-zero temperatures and icy winds along with it but when I see snow I feel pure joy! Many of us have happy childhood memories of playing in the snow, so when we see those big, fluffy flakes twirling from the sky, these memories kick in and we feel  like a kid again.

I’m in love with this long plaid coat from the moment I saw it! Why? Because it looks rich and glamorous, refined and sophisticated. Something about a  long wool coat screams impeccable style. To get an effortless casual style, I am wearing the coat with jeans, a white sweater and gumboots (I think gumboots are not just practical – they’re also fashionable).  😉 Classic pumps will look great for a sophisticated style, and flats for a more masculine chic.
