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.

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

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!!

Love The Oversized Coat

Good morning, Everyone! Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!  

I wanted to say a quick hello and share a few new pictures from the last days.  

Personally, I love to wear oversized clothes, especially outerwear. I absolutely love this black and white  Zara oversized plaid coat! I think it’s worth investing in the oversized coat, as it can be paired with so many different looks. It completely transforms any outfit, remaining functional and ideal for cozying up during cold days of winter.

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?

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!
