Outfit | Pink and lace

shein pink lace sleeves top

I always go back to pink 💗 I don't know if it even looks flattering on me, especially when it's in soft pastel color and me being pale and all but I don't really care cause it's such a pretty color, so girly so feminine. 

So the star of the show is definitely this LACE CAP SLEEVES BLOUSE in the softest summer friendly material, that is also bit creased and I do apologize but I didn't have time for ironing 😉 lace details on the sleeves are what caught my attention in a first place and make this piece so chic and it's gonna be so easy to dress it up as well for some special occasion. Everything else I kept black and simple so the main focus is on the blouse, that is how I actually love to dress, always having a key piece that is going to be in the center of attention.

On the last note, I'm really looking forward to a little vacation, but it's probably gonna be in September, so until then summer in the city...

Outfit | Ruffles on top, ruffles on bottom

shein ruffle sleeves top

Who would know I was gonna love ruffles that much. There are so many trends lately that I'm loving but I'm not getting to style them, and that makes me sad cause you know how much I love me some trendy pieces. Well I think this summer is gonna be super hot and I'm gonna be by the pool or the beach most of the time so I'm not gonna be needing that much clothes anyway 😉

I don't know why I thought that I need this much ruffles in one look, but I feel like it turned out cool and kinda effortless since I opted for sneakers on the bottom. Funny thing is that both top and bottom ( styled here - Outfit | Different shades of grey ) are from the same store and they matched perfectly. This WHITE RUFFLE SLEEVES TOP also has these cute eyelet trim details that makes it more girly and fun. I kept the look white and grey, but I do love me some color so next look is definitely gonna be in color...

Outfit | It's ok to be vulnerable...

shein v neck top

It's been a while since my last post, I know, I was in a really bad place, I still am but I'm dealing with it, we all are. I don't know if you remember when I talked about my father being very sick, and that is something that we all are dealing with for a year and a half now. Like that is not enough, now my hubby's father has passed away, suddenly a week ago. It has been such an emotional period for us, and I'm an emotional wrack, but God knows I'm trying to stay strong for my hubby, for my father and for myself. It's hard, that is why I look for an escape here on my blog, on my other social media, so I wouldn't think about all these things, about my life. It's nice to look at other people moments in life - happy or sad - and know that you are not alone and that life does go on.

Well after this long intro (sorry) I'll focus on this day when these photos were taken, not so long ago, but I just put them on hold. Fashion and everything beauty related is my passion in life and really does allow me to function "normal" for at least few hours a day.

This SHEIN V-Cut High Low top is a piece that I recently got cause I wanted something simple that would go with practically everything and still be a chic piece that could be dressed up or down. In this case I decided to dress it down for an everyday wear, adding just a few details to make it more interesting - like my leopard loafers, leopard bracelet and this fab straw bag that I found on eBay for about $10.

If you are going through a hard period in life, know that there are people that love you and support you no matter what and that life does go on and that empty spot in your heart is never gonna get full again but that is ok too, you just need to accept it and learn to live with it 💔

Outfit | Styling waist/bum bag

styling waist/bum bag

I think there is no introduction needed to this particular trend - it's something that we all wore in one point of our lives and that is made a huge come back - waist/bum bag or fanny pack (depending on a style of it). I'm more into this modern designer version than the sports one but for each their own.

Don't you love when a trend piece is so versatile that you can mix and match it with almost everything in your wardrobe, I know I do. Especially this waist bag that I got, it really goes with my style, not to sporty not to girly, just perfect and off course since it's black it makes the life of styling that much more easier. Also you would be surprised how much stuff you can actually put in there!!! Lastly it wouldn't be me if I didn't buy the same thing in two different colors 😉 so yeah you guessed it I got the same bum bag but in red, and I'll be styling it soon as well, I mean you can find them pretty much everywhere and for cheap too. This one I got from eBay for around $7 !!!

Are you loving that this trend is back or you are not really that obsessed!?

How to style | Casual chic style guide

how to casual chic style

Many women have a very casual, sporty style in their teens (they usually wear jeans, t-shirts and sneakers) – simple and comfortable. When they’re no longer teenagers and/or start to work, they want to change the way they dress, but they don’t identify with the classic style.

Is this you?

If it is, don’t worry, help is on the way 😉 It’s really easy to have a more chic, sophisticated, elegant style, and keep wearing the casual pieces you love so much (and that’s great because I also love casual pieces).

The problem is that jeans, sneakers, t-shirts, cargo pants, and so on, are sporty/casual pieces and when you only wear those kind of pieces you get a style that is… too casual! It’s great for teenagers or a weekend but it’s not appropriate for all occasions or for the office.

What’s the solution?

Very simple. You like casual pieces. You want to look more chic. You need the casual chic style. To recreate it you have to combine your casual pieces with other classic or sophisticated items.

How to Recreate a Casual-Chic Look!?

Follow two steps:

1. Choose 1 or 2 casual (or sporty) pieces to wear
Sporty Pieces: sneakers, t-shirts, track pants, any piece associated with sports, etc.
Casual Pieces: denim jeans, denim shorts, any denim piece, leggings, cargo pants, large and relaxed pieces (tops, knits), dresses in a casual fabric like cotton, flat shoes and combat boots, etc.

2. Combine with sophisticated or classic pieces / accessories
Classic Pieces: blazer, leather jacket, pencil skirt, straight classic pants, shirts, classic dresses (like a shirt dress), classic shoes (loafers, pumps, flat sandals, ankle boots), etc.
Sophisticated Pieces: any piece in a more chic fabric (silk, fur, …), pieces with a sophisticated or fashionable style (asymmetric, peplum), sophisticated shoes (high-heels, stilettos or embellished sandals, thigh high boots), structured jackets and blazers, co-ords.
Accessories: structured handbags, dainty or statement earrings, stacked rings or bracelets, watch, dainty necklaces or statement necklace, sunglasses, leather belts, etc.

I went for sneakers and denim shorts for my sporty casual pieces and added this lovely WHITE CHIFFON SHIRT that is a more classic piece, added all gold accessories - dainty layered necklaces, my Tommy Hilfiger watch, some classic sunglasses and vintage leather belt.
