Outfit | Checkered - plaid pants and how to style them

checkered plaid pants

WHY IS EVERYONE WEARING CHECKERED - PLAID PANTS? 

Err… hello best trend of 2018! They just beautifully showed up on our sartorial radar courtesy of the plaid trend altogether, and everyone’s wearing them cause they have this chic vibe to them. French style mixed with retro, mixed with laid back but also being able to translate to a billion other personal styles.

Checkered - plaid pants are like this fashion challenge everyone’s doing: wearing them to fit their own looks. Some girls wear them with sneakers, some go for heels, some wear them relaxed and chic, while others go for sleek office formal styles.

The plaid pants themselves come in more styles: dressy, for office, cigarette, with pockets, brown checks, black and white, colored, elastic band waist, normal waist band, high waist, fitted, slouchy… You just pick your thing and roll with it.

These are also the reasons why everyone’s wearing them: there’s a little something for any and all body types, they’re very flattering, and they’re very easy to style with no wrong fashion turns, you know.

HOW TO STYLE PLAID PANTS?

Personally I love the relaxed chic style of the grey plaid pants, maybe an elastic waist band, cigarette cut, slightly cropped, with sneakers, and a white t-shirt. Perfection for Saturday brunch, and for office style.

Pair them with:

→ turtlenecks for retro vibe
→ white silky/or crispy button-down shirts
→ hoodie for laid back look
→ t-shirts for casual cool (that's me 😉)
→ layer them with this cozy cardigan for that hobo chic style
→ throw cool co-ord blazer on (like this one - Outfit | Life update ) for a more pulled together look
→ chunky sweaters for a chic winter vibe
→ printed tops for ultimate sophistication

I honestly think there’s no wrong way to wear them.
What is your way of styling this kind of pants!?

Talever | Spring dresses (5 ways to dress for spring)

floral off shoulder dress


Spring represents renewal and rebirth. The warming weather revitalizes plant life, adding color to the drab outdoors. Dress yourself for the season by adding color and life back into your wardrobe. Start pulling out breezier materials that can keep you cool as the weather warms up. And what is a better way of doing it than with spring and summer dresses

1. Aim for bright colors and patterns to give your outfit some style. Light colors give a cheerful, happy, and fresh look to spring fashion. Dark colors, however, tend to feel like winter. Ditch the black and navy items and go for something yellow, blue,  green or floral instead.
Pastels are always a go to in spring fashion. Sea foam green, lilacs, and pale pink add pop to any outfit. Imagine wearing a dress at a picnic, or out on a walk in the garden, and ask yourself if the colors and patterns fit the scenery. 

2. Dress in layers. Spring is characterized by quickly changing temperatures, so be ready for whatever nature throws your way. Always bring a sweater, cardigan, light jacket, or pair of leggings handy - it is always easy to take off layers if you get hot an be left in a lovely spring dress

3. Aim for lighter fabrics. The increasing heat means you need to ditch the heavy winter clothes for something more comfortable. While cotton is always popular, you have several other options for spring fashion as well like: Tropical Wool, Chiffon, Linen, Hemp.

4. Know that floral patterns are always in style during the spring. When the flowers come out, people love to see more flowers. Big floral dress, shirts, and even pants are in style no matter where you live or where you go or whether is a casual dress, party dress or special occasion dress.

5. Show a little more skin. As the weather gets better, more and more people start losing layers. Spring fashion takes advantage of this with exposed shoulders, shorts and skirts, and open back or v-necks. This will not only keep you cool, it will make you stand out on the street.

I have few photo suggestions for you but you can find all these dresses and much more on an online store www.talever.com

Outfit | Monochrome look

half frame sunglasses

I know you are use to seeing me alone on the photos but from now on I'll be having my little furry friend with me. I'm not gonna be carrying her all the time, just for few weeks until she gets all her shots and it is safe to put her on the ground. I'm a new mummy so bare with me 😉

Honestly Mimi was my inspiration for this look. She is all black and grey and that is one of my favorite combos so I went for a monochrome look. Key elements of this outfit were accessories CHECKED PRINT SCARF and HALF FRAME SUNGLASSES both quite trendy pieces I would say. Check print has made a huge come back, not only in accessories but in other pieces of clothing like - blazers, pants, skirts... You can see me styling checked blazer in my previous post Outfit & life update and I'm still to get my hands on checked pants as well. Sunglasses on the other hand might not be everyone's cup of tea, since they are pretty trendy piece but I feel like they add interest to the whole look. 

I know it's first day of the spring and I should be wearing some bit more colorful pieces but the weather is still quite wintery and it's actually snowing today so I guess you'll have to wait few more days for my wardrobe to blossom 🌸

Outfit & Life update

grey checked blazer zaful

I know it has been a while since I last posted something on my blog, it's been a little bit of everything honestly. Firstly the weather you guys, it has been absolutely hectic, blizzard lasted for almost whole week and after it we went and picked up our new family member -  little Mimi - that was waiting for us at 8 weeks old. So you can imagine us dealing with a puppy in our home, seriously it was like bringing a new born baby in the house. Sleepless nights, cleaning and wiping all day behind her but still enjoying every second of our little blessing. We were actually thinking of getting a dog for a while now but we never seemed to get around of doing it. This beautiful creature came to our lives by accident, or as I wanna believe - by destiny! Oh and yeah I forgot to mention for everyone wondering she is a miniature schnauzer 🐕

Now that you are all familiar with the things that have been going on for the time I was gone I can talk about my outfit 😉 The star of this look, beside Mimi of course, is this GREY CHECKED BLAZER that I bet you've seen everywhere. I was eyeing it for a while now, I really wanted checked oversize blazer to dress it down for an everyday street style vibe. Styling it with ripped jeans was the first look I imagined in my head, but I'm in love with this new suit trend that has been going on for some time, I'm just waiting for matching pants to come as well. It has that men boxy fit to it and I love it cause it's that more effortless and casual, and it has red lining - everything about it is just perfect, don't you think!?

Outfit | Styling color block boots

color block boots outfit

Since it's still winter time I have an excuse to buy more winter stuff 😉 and being obsessed with shoes as always I got some new addition to my collection. This time around it's par of boots that I never owned - color block boots.

I know how some women love their bags well I'm not one of them I love me some shoes!!! If I have an option I'll always go for another par of shoes, I can't help myself, I know I have a problem 😀 that being said you can imagine how exited I was when I saw these COLOR BLOCK BOOTS since I don't have anything similar in my wardrobe I had to get them. They are a true refreshment since I do have a lot of black boots, these are going to add interest to any look I think. I did style them bit louder with a color block faux fur coat but I did stick to the same color scheme so this look is, in my opinion, kinda neutral. They will par well with all black too, and with midi length skirt for a dressier occasion it would be perfect.

What are your thoughts of these kind of boots, would you wear them and how?!
