Leopard print to the office? Yes!

Hello Everyone and happy Sunday! Hope you are all enjoying the weekend.

In the last few years, leopard print has really moved on to a whole new level. This wild print is nothing to be afraid of and, done right, looks super-chic.

But it’s one thing to rock this animal print when you are out on the town with the girls, but can you pull it off in the workplace? Yes. Leopard print is one of the boldest animal prints a woman can wear to the office. You don’t have to avoid it. Let’s take for example this pretty blouse from Only. If you want to make it the focal point of your outfit, just  keep the color combo simple with soothing neutrals  such as nudes, browns, black, dark navy blues and olive greens. Keep everything else you’re wearing simple to avoid creating too many distractions.

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.

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!
