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.

Accessories: the red beret

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

Accessories and clothing have equal significance in an outfit, working together to create an ensemble that expresses your style and who you are. For me, the winter cold is the perfect opportunity to finish my outfit off with a pretty red beret. I think the beret is a key accessory, a perfect little finishing touch. It will make a playful yet chic addition to daytime looks. My latest find is the Topshop beret I’m wearing in today’s post. I hope you like it.

Last Day of the Year

Hello Everyone, I can’t believe I’m writing the last post of 2016!

I couldn’t let this day pass without thanking all my friends, family and followers  that have supported me through this year. What I have accomplished so far has happened only because of your neverending support. I hope I have inspired you to chase your dreams as I have chased mine!

I wish you all the best during 2017, and above all, stay fashionable!

With all my love,

Carmen

My One Year Blog Anniversary

They say that time flies when you’re having fun, and I can’t agree more!

Starting my own blog was a big step out of my comfort zone. I have been reading some fashion blogs occasionally and wanted to create my own for years. I love fashion and styling from as far I can remember. However, I was very afraid to put myself out there! I was thinking of what my friends or family would think. But I had to do it, it felt like “now or never”. So I did it. And now, one year later, with lots of hard work with myself (and still working on it), I managed to liberate myself from this fear, and everything fell into place.

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been a year since my first blog post, on December 24th 2015! So here I am, 98 posts (and outfits) later, on my one year blog anniversary!

P.S.: I want to inspire you to follow your dreams and to believe that you can achieve anything you want, no matter the assets you got in your hands right now.

If I can, you bet you can too!!

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.

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!

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!
