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

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year once again!!! It only seems like yesterday when we went to France back in July (see the summer holiday posts here, here and here). I think we can all agree that this year really has flown by. But I absolutely  love it, now that it’s getting scarily close to Christmas. Anyone not started their Christmas shopping yet?!

I love online shopping because it saves my time and money! You can sit at home and purchase all of your presents, and then just collect them all when they are delivered.

I couldn’t resist the temptation to show you my best pre Christmas present ever, our new puppy, Jolie. She’s so smart, sweet and playful! Isn’t she adorable?

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.

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.

The Black Blazer

Good morning, Everyone and happy Wednesday! I hope your week is going great so far!
This is yet another one of my outfits comprised entirely of old and new favorites. Most of them you’ve met before, I’m talking about the Zign sandals I’ve been wearing pretty much this summer (see post here) and of course the Even & Odd silver mini bag ( see posts here, here, here and here ) . Honestly, I think I love them both a little too much! Lastly, I’d like to introduce you to my newest acquisition, this versatile C&A blazer. A black blazer is definitely a wardrobe staple, the perfect way to add
  polish and edge to almost every look imaginable. For today’s look I chose to pair the blazer with a simple black strapless top and boyfriend jeans. I then added a pair of heels and silver waist belt and cross-body bag, for a hint of femininity.

The Cozy Cardigan

Good morning everyone and happy Wednesday! 

When it comes to knits, in my opinion, it’s pretty hard to find the balance between too fitted and too slouchy, but this gorgeous Esprit cardigan definitive nails that perfectly oversized look! Perfect in every way I just love the way it fits. The possibilities of wearing it are endless, so good with skinny jeans or leather pants, I also love pairing it with dresses or skirts for a romantic or nonchalant day time look.
