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

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.
