The leather pencil skirt

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

If you don’t own a leather pencil skirt yet, it’s time to get on it! Not only are they empowering , but they just look amazing on all bodies and are easy to style. A trend with this much staying power is worth a bigger investment, but even if you don’t want to drop the money on real leather or a designer label there are still lots of options that will keep you looking amazing and on-trend for a long time.

Fringe love

Happy Sunday, Everyone! Hope you are all enjoying the weekend! I just wanted to say hi and share a few new images from my last outfit.

When I saw this shaggy  H&M fringe cardigan on the website, I couldn’t check out quick enough! It looks like a million bucks (but only € 15 on the sales!) and has that oversized fit I love.  I think that wool is the perfect fabric to accomplish that cozy effect I was looking for; even more by adding the fringes to the look.

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.

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.

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.

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 Patent Leather Skirt

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

For  today’s look  I am wearing one of my personal favorites from the Fall 2016 trends, the glossy patent skirt. Eye-catching and statement-making the patent leather is hugely popular this season, adding a glamorous twist to classically feminine, creating a super slick effect.

I played with different textures to ad some contrast to my monochrome outfit. I opted for a simple sleeveless  turtleneck knitted top and my all time favorite, my Siste`s sheer cardigan. I wear this cardigan for years, I love the interesting details, the long streamers that flutter with every step, the short silky straps knotted all over and the lace back are simply fabulous. To finish my look I paired my outfit with patent leather ankle booties and a black clutch.
