Outfit | Sunday stroll

ombre hair

Another stroll in a park, another beautiful day :) It's cold outside but it's sunny and that makes me happy. I'm one of those people who get totally unmotivated and lazy when the weather is dark, cold and cloudy! So hubby and I decided to take advantage of this day. I wore my knit sweater dress in white and pared it with my DIY knit scarf (and yes I knitted it my self, my mom thought me). So here is my Sunday outfit!

Outfit | Love mustard (yellow)

mustard scarf

Today was such a beautiful day. Sun was shining, it was not that cold, just perfect for a walk and a photo shoot. I went with my hubby for a walk by the river. He is finally on a vacation and has time to take photos of my OOTD for me yeah!!! Finally someone can help me take photos outside. So what do you think guys, did he did a good job!? ;) His model was really trying, he he. 
I wore this mustard scarf that my dad gave me and all the other colors are pretty neutral and earthy, I wanted for my scarf to pop in this outfit!

Starting with this ruffle skirt with pink flowers, sweatshirt with some pink print and of course my updated pink nails also with some flowers.

DIY embellished cap

I don't know what's with me and all these DIY-s lately. I guess I'm inspired! When I see something that I like I immediately think - How can I do this?! But always with a condition - it has to be super easy ;) So if you were wondering like me how to, follow these simple steps: get a cap (color and style of your choice), some rhinestones that can be sew on (color and size of your choice), and needle and thread. Additional tip - if you want to make it even more faster and easier just get a glue and glue it on! Good luck! XO

Outfit | grey scale

I'm all about the fur this season, all I need is a fur coat to add to my collection ;) These leg warmers my hubby bought me, and I love them, they are so soft and warm. I wore it with this grey quilted jacket that is perfect for this cold fall weather. Since I was on a grey side :) I opted for my grey overalls which are so comfortable cause they are made of cotton. For an extra warmth I put on my angora sweater and some tights! XO

DIY lace trim skirt

Recently I saw this Victoria's Secret lace trim pencil skirt that I liked, and it was sold out, price was $70. So I knew I had a black mini skirt that's to short on me and decided to by some lace and make it longer and more trendy ;) So for this EASY DIY all you need is: mini skirt or a pencil skirt of your choice, lace of you choice preferably bit wider and needle and a thread.

Outfit I cozy sweater jacket

My favorite sweater jacket for this up coming winter! I love how long it is, how warm it is and the color - grey and black. It doesn't have any buttons, it came with a pin. I styled it with a simple black dress, knee high sock and lace boots, bit casual. Almost forgot to mention, it has a hood, that's the best part for me ;) XO

I can't believe I totally forgot to post these photos, I was sure I did ;) This sweater was my inspiration for this whole look. I wore navy blue shirt, navy blue shorts, indigo blue flats with studs and blue and white sweater. Now you are asking, could it be more blue?! :) Well maybe! XO

Outfit | fury orange

Ok guys I'll be honest, I'm not really a fan of an orange color, I don't know why, maybe it's just to vibrant for me. But anyways, I had these pants for a long time now, and I thought why not, lets give it a shot and see. I wanted some bright pop of color, cause these cold foggy days are so grey and boring.  
I have a perfect orange purse, that was a gift, to go with it. And of course I would choose to wear something fury, I'm a sucker when it comes to fury, cozy, fluffy things ;) XO

I recently saw this Wellington stripe pullover from Juicy Couture, and I loved it. I knew i had in my closet similar one and decided to update it with some rhinestones!!! So as you can imagine, all you need is an old sweater that you maybe forgot all about or just don't wear it any more and some rhinestones of different colors and sizes that can be sew on, and don't forget needle and thread! Simple right, XO!

Outfit | Anniversary date

anniversary date

25. November was our 10 years anniversary. We celebrated like every year, going on a date. We went in so many restaurants over the years but we seem to always go back to the particular one - Mexican! It not easy to find food that we both love, I'm the picky one ;) This restaurant is gorgeous, cozy atmosphere, delicious food, not to expensive, just right...
I wanted to look bit elegant this time, with almost everything black and a top with "Richard Parker" ;) on it! I just seen the movie Life of Pi, maybe that was my inspiration for this look, crazy I know!!!

Outfit | print mix

I don't really mix prints very often, this is just one of those day when I'm like Mmmkey ;) I pared all earthy tones, bit of camo, bit of animal print but all in same color family. I actually love wearing these colors on a cold weather, I don't know maybe I feel warmer, he he. I also layered up, I'm wearing camo top, black vest and a cardigan, so all I need is a jacket right now. And if you noticed I'm not wearing heels :) rear case, I opted for black flats this time. XO

Outfit | white or blue stripes?

I'm totally lovin' this bustier trend! I only have a white one, and I find it more difficult to style, so I'm in a hunt for a perfect black one ;) I wanna say this is a bit more casual look with an oversize white shirt, and my ripped tights (on purpose of course). I think my inspiration for this mostly white look were my white nails, I just love how fresh it all looks. XO

My "updated" nails

I'm lovin' my "updated" nails. I found a picture of nails that I like on the internet, and I showed that picture to the lady that does my nails, and she did it exactly like I wanted! I'm so happy, I love when the job is well done ;D

Outfit | Black with a pop

Ok black is usually my go to option when I'm in doubt! Now when I combine all black with this cold, rainy days without any happy sunlight then it's totally depressing, right!? So recently I was reading a blog of a lovely Diana from Manhattan Image and Style ( I hope she want mind me mentioning her ), and she sad we can make ourselves feel better using colors we love. So yeah, I opted for my favorite color - purple!!! Well here I did combined two scarfs one purple, one floral, I don't know it seemed like more fun ;D XO

Outfit | Blues

I'm always having a hard time finding what to wear on a cold weather. I just hate looking like a sack, wrapped in ton of clothes ;) It's hard to look stylish when your're freezing your ass off! 
So yeah, turtleneck sweater - checked, long pencil skirt - checked, tights - checked, boots - checked ;)))
All I need now is to put my coat on and I'm ready to go!

Oh I just couldn't wait to style my new blazer that I bought in Rome. Tonight we are going to my hubby's sister birthday, so I wanted to be casual, it's just a simple family gathering... I dressed it down with this cool MTV tee that I bought last night when we were shopping for a birthday gift! I wanted to be fun combo so I added a pop of color with this mint green clutch ;)

Vacation | Bacio from Rome and Naples

I'm back from Rome !!! It was amazing, we had so much fun, saw beautiful architecture,  learned so many things about the city... We were not just in Rome, but in Vatican, Pompeii and Naples also. I'm not going to write a Romanian history right now ;) I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Wanna be minnie?

In my country, we don't celebrate Halloween, but i wanted to get in the spirit of this holiday with all you guys that do celebrate. This is my DIY quick and easy try of a costume ;) don't judge, it's my first time he he he. I just played with my hair, made two buns, put my scarf in a bow and a bit of make up! I had so much fun doing it!!!
Any way, I'm not going to be here for a Halloween, I'll be on my way to Rome with my mum, so I guess I won't be posting for a few days :( but I'll be takin' a lot of pics there so be prepared when I come back to see all of them, well not all of them, I do not want to bore you to death ;)

Outfit | Purple rain

My first par of PU leather leggings. This was on my wish list for the previous month ;) I saw a lot of models but  to me this model was the one, because they are not your classical leggings, they are as pants, I have two pockets on the back and I have a zipper in the front. Pu leather is only in front of the leggings and is not all along the side but in parts, that I also like. I styled them with black boots with the heel, to elongate the legs, a black t-shirt with open back and with this purple blazer. It's a bit edgy!

DIY Perfume stand

Another of my DIY projects. I have a small collection of perfumes, and so has my husband, so I had to figure out a way where to keep them, to be in one place, while at the same time not to take a lot of space!
It's very simple, all you need is glue gun, plates of different sizes and slightly larger candlesticks.
I've put it together and glue it all and a problem solved! :)

Outfit | Effortlessly Me

White shirt is a must have for me in the my wardrobe. Whenever I can not decide or do not know what to wear, I wear a white shirt and look like I had a little thought about what I'll wear ;) Combined with boyfriend jeans for that effortless look and of course heels, not to lose the femininity. Today it was enough for me to take this large purse and to pack the most basic and go to do a couple of errands for the day! Anyway this purse was given to me by my longtime friend so I love it even 
more ...

Outfit | Sporty girl

My go to outfit! For those days when I do not work, and when I'm resting, this is my casual sporty style. I'm enjoying the rest of the sunny days and getting ready for our little vacation, which frankly I can not wait! I broke this grey colors with these cute purple shoes ;)
P.S. Excuse my messy bun!!!

Corazon Espinado

I do not know why, but whenever I wear this sweater I remember Santana and his song Corazon Espinado. Perhaps due to the fact that around the heart on a sweater are rivets! I do not know ;) Otherwise, this sweater is my DIY project that I wanted to combine in this rocker-ish style! If you're interested in how it was created, feel free to click on this link DIY heart sweater .

Walk by the river

It was such a wonderful weather for a walk, we had to take advantage of it. Admittedly I came straight from work, husband picked me up and we were encountered with our friends and their small baby. Hence, this outfit is a little more serious, but I also had boots with heels that I changed in the car, they were not  for walking around :)

Shades of brown

Today we gonna do some small shopping, namely it's my husband's father birthday tomorrow and we're going to buy him a gift. It's a little chilly outside, the sun rises and sets behind the clouds :( and I could not wait to walk down my new jacket, and she was my inspiration for this outfit, all shades of brown :)

Monochrome trend

I love the simplicity of monochrome trend. Everything can be combined and there is no error. These pants are one of my favorite in high-waisted style. I picked up the hair in a bun for a little more elegant look, after all how else would you notice my earrings ;) I'm not a fan of orange, but in the details it's all right. Thus, the little of orange on earrings and a little of orange lipstick will not hurt! To break a little this black and white world ;)

DIY Denim vest outfit

Okay, let's start from the beginning, this denim vest was originally my denim jacket that I have not worn for a long time and of course instead of getting rid of it I "ruin it". First I cut out the sleeves, then I soaked it halfway into thinner until it turned white, because that was not enough I took the scissors and made ​​a couple of holes for the distressed denim look. And now I am satisfied ;)

Pink tartan

Tartan print is definitely not my first choice, primarily because it was originally red, and I'm not really a fan of that color. But it has become so popular and increased in choice of colors! And I opted for pink tartan, why not! Since is fall I kind of sided with the dark colors, but I broke them with the touch of pink :)

Military 'n' dressy

I like to combine rough pieces with feminine pieces. The military jacket is perfect for that, that is way I paired it with a colorful dress that emphasizes my figure so that the jacket wouldn't swallow me :) With black sweater with buttons because it is chili, and accompanying him with black boots and a black handbag.

Overall for me

These modern 90's somehow favor me, I like that all that fashion is back but in a slightly different form, especially overalls, adapted to today's standards! Of course I had to put in the mix and a crop top bustier, that has been one of my favorite clothing pieces for a long time. Now that the cold weather is coming I do not know with what I am going to replace it :) Here are also my wedges in skin color, that little touch of beige to elongate of my legs!

Wednesday, October 9, 2013

Boyfriend jeans

I accepted this boyfriend jeans trend, I love everything that is relaxed, easy to combine and can be worn every day, that's good enough  for me! This is just one of the ways to wear them. I took the opportunity while it was still a nice weather, though it's fall already, to walk bare feet and show a little bit of belly :)

Maxi fun

One of those days when you want to have fun, and do not want to be tied by anything even if it is just clothes. This maxi dress is the perfect piece for those days, comfortable, relaxed and swaying. Of course with the jacket over, the fact is that warm days are leaving us :( and it's getting cooler. The heel is pretty high, but you do not mind me, it's the only way I can wear a maxi dress or skirt, or else it would be dragging on the ground ;)

Love me some tan

Here's what it is all about :-) I like tan color of the pants mainly because it matches with the color of my hair. In addition, it's great to style. This is also one of the few jeans that , I can say, fit nicely, since they are high-waisted.
And sandals, comfortable wooden heel, I can walk for hours in them, with this black fringes that make them trendy and beautiful.

Flowers 'n' Neutrals

One of my favorite combinations for work. Neutral colors from head to toe, and flowers on the pants are not popping. It all somehow goes together!

Thursday, October 3, 2013

Let's go green

I recently bought this green blazer and I really liked the color. I have nothing in my closet that is in that color. But when I got home and thought about it a bit, I realized that it is not so easy to style. But after some trying I came across a winning combination :-)

Hair talk - how I curl my hair

As I sad, I will address once again the topic of hair. I promised to show you how to curl your hair and what kind of curls you get with Remington pearl wand, of which I talked about in this previous posts.
I like the relaxed curls because they look casual and effortless :-) I put a couple of pictures so you can see how it actually looks. Anyway, a few pictures look like mugshots he he he.
Otherwise, I have to mention that before I started curling the hair, I sprayed throughout the hair, and mostly at the ends - heat protection styler in the range Advance Techniques from Avon. Each section I curled up to 10 seconds and I set the temperature to 160 degrees. I curled each section away from my face. Finally, I sprayed all the curls with hairspray - hairspray taft power, mega strong of a Schwarzkoph. I like this hairspray because it is strong and  holds a curl for a long time and it's not sticky, and does not make your hair stiff!

1 pencil skirt - 3 ways

Elegantna varijanta/Elegant

Skirt my mother bought, so I love it even more ;-)

Hair talk - Remington Pearl Wand review

I got for my birthday Remington Pearl Wand, and after I tried it I want to share my opinion and experience. In fact, I don't know what all exists in the market, and we here have no much choice :-) but this one I really liked.
First to mention what says on the box - first of all it has the ceramic barrel that provides equal deployment of heat along the barrel, but the top of the barrel remains cool for safety. Widest part of the barrel is 25 mm and the narrowest is 13 mm. It has a digital display that shows the temperature ranging from 130-210 degrees Fahrenheit. It automatically turns off if not used for a long time, normally flashes by holding the power switch. It comes with a pouch that is resistant to heat and a glove. The swivel cord is 3 m long so there is no entanglement ;-) And lets not forget, heats up in 30 seconds!
What I like - that is rapidly heated, and that the temperature can be adjusted because I do not like to fry my hair, and that I need 15 minutes for my hair! Since the barrel is not equal width it can make bigger relaxed curls and smaller tighter curls, and that's not a bad option.
Maybe in some of the following posts I'll show what curls you can get, and what other products I use for the longer lasting curls.

My "updated" nails

I finally managed to find a salon near me, and where nails are nicely done. I've been searching the internet and came across a picture of Dragana Grozdanic respective work and I was thrilled, and when it turned out that she is a couple of stations from me, I was even happier. I immediately contacted her the same day to make an appointment, and here are the results, I must admit that I am impressed. I wanted to try this trend - stiletto nails, but I did not want them to be so prominently pointed, not because I do not like it, because of the work that I do, not very professional ;-)
By the way she did the acrylic nails on me, she says they're better for your nail bed than gel nails that I had before, but even then I did not have any problems. I really like long nails and I'm so sad that I can not let them grow naturally long, my nails do not break and do not split but something worse - they bent, and therefore do not look healthy and beautiful. And of course in a combination with my favorite rings here are the results!

Let's start with HOWDY

I've asked myself that question for a long time - How to start blogging? Which post would be most ideal to start with? When would be the ideal time to write the first post? Then question what pictures to put first... and the thousands of other issues and reasons not to start.
At that point it became clear that there isn't an ideal moment, that ideal image, you just have to do what you want, and it was for me to make a blog and write about what I really love. I love everything fashion and beauty related. This is going to be my style, my sense and my moments in life ;)

 And here I am, the first few pictures, which I will take on my own for now.
Maybe I'm still playing it safe by selecting the monochrome trend, but I liked this combination. I styled everything I currently like, crop top, black and white and heels of course.
Just to warn you, I'm bit serious in these pictures :-D
