Floral pants: a happy happy joy joy mood

Floral pants are definitely one of those items that you’re going to see me in all summer long.

Usually when summer starts, I love wearing dresses, skirts, short, everything but long pants or jeans. Well, that it’s not the case when we are talking about this particular pair of pants.

First, I wanna talk a little about the fabric, so you can understand why they are the perfect pair of pants to wear in the summer. They are super soft and extremely lightweight. Literally they feel like you are not wearing anything which makes them really comfortable too.

What I love the most about this pair of floral palazzo pants , is the cut. The loose cut gives a graceful flare to your figure as you walk, which I find that to be a little sophisticated and ultra feminine.

I’m not a petite girl at all, but this type of pants will accentuate the length of your legs… and to be honest, which girl doesn’t like that?

In my lasts shopping sprees, I ended up buying only items with print or really colorful for the summer of 2018.

Floral print is the one that defines me the most. It always give me a happy happy joy joy mood, but in the same time is very feminine and sweet.

I was in love with the pastel color of the pants the flowers, so in order to keep that the focal point of my outfit, I paired the floral pants with a simple flowy white top.

The pants have a matching crop top, which you’ll probably see in a different post.

Don’t forget: when we talk about warm weather fashion, one thing it is for sure: floral prints will always be in style!

Lingerie as outerwear – trend alert

Wearing your lingerie as outerwear can sound pretty crazy, right? Well, think about it again… We’ve seen this trend around for some years on & off, but lately it has continued to pick up speed.

lingerie trend

For the first time, I tried this trend a couple of years ago when I thought that wearing a lace bralette over a white tee it would be something a little bit out of the ordinary. Oh well… it was. Back then this whole lingerie trend it wasn’t such a big thing, so I got some “weird” looks :))

For today’s post I used a lace bralette as my crop top in my outfit.

I really believe that, wearing a nice piece of lingerie mixed in with some prêt-à-porter items, can look very seductive without being too much.

Even though, exposing your bra might not be too comfortable for many women, I would suggest you to try it… at least once. You can start by adding a semi-sheer blouse over your  favorite bra. It will make you feel more covered and the effect created it will not be as full-frontal.

Like in most of my outfits, I love to mix textures. For this particular look, I couldn’t think of something more appropriate to combine my lace bralette than this silk kimono. The high waisted jeans are cutting a little bit that bedroom/lounge vibe of the outfit and is bringing it into the street style zone.

With the right pieces mixed together, I have to say that I’m really digging this trend. Are you going to try it this summer? I would love to hear what do you think.

Have a gorgeous week,

XoXo, OD!

How to wear the pleated midi skirt with sneakers

It’s hard to believe that you don’t have already a pleated midi skirt. This type of skirt is a staple closet and we’ve seen it around for a while now.

pleated midi skirt

A pleated midi skirt is super easy to wear. You can take it in 2 opposite styling areas: elegant or casual. All depends on what you feel like wearing or where are you going.

When you decide what approach you take for this skirt, the shoes are the ones that are setting the tone of your outfit.

If you want to go for an elegant look, you need just to add a pair of cute high heels and a top.

I usually like to do a more casual styling with this kind of skirt, so I’m going to opt for a pair of fashion sneakers.

Even though is spring, we were getting colder temperatures in LA the last couple of days.So, I find this sweater more than perfect to wear it with my spring-ish skirt.

The volumes, created by this chunky sweater and the skirt it is something that I really enjoy. Call me crazy but I love the loose fitting clothes.

For this outfit, I chose to propose the bag in 2 different ways: as a crossbody bag and as a bag belt. To be honest, I wore it as a belt bag, because it’s the perfect trick to accentuate your waist line.

The fact that I decided to add sneakers to this look it’s no surprise for anyone. I love to mix and match items in order to create unique looks. And this fashion sneakers were the va va voom that my outfit was missing.

Happy hump day, my lovelies!

Floral print shirt: spring mood

In my opinion, the floral print shirt is a must-have in everyone’s dressing for the 2018 spring season.

Shirts, are for me one of my favorite clothing items, because you can find them in a lot of different styles: from elegant to casual, we can incorporate them in pretty much any outfit.

A super versatile piece, it can be worn by itself in the warmer months, or underneath a blazer, coat, when the weather requires some layering.

It is something about the floral print shirt that outlines your femininity and also gives your outfit a romantic vibe.

For today’s outfit, I paired my satin floral print shirt with a pair of high waisted jeans and a white vest.

I finished up the look with this gorgeous pair of oxfords, that can definitely elevate any look that you need.

Lately, I ended up buying all floral, bold prints pieces that I can’t wait to share them with you.

I think I’m already in all full spring mode ready for summer, baby!

I hope you have an awesome week, my lovelies.

XoXo, OD.

Denim skirt – pencil style

Denim it will never go out of fashion and in this category falls the denim skirt too.

denim skirt

I remember denim skirts being around since I was little and they are a high fashion trend in 2018.

One thing that’s really cool about the denim skirts, is the fact that they are adaptable and practical in the same time. You can dress them up or down and   you can definitely wear them with everything. Any shoes, any accessories… they are the most versatile clothing piece I know (along with the beloved jeans, of course).

The denim skirt is the skirt that you can wear it day to night. By simply changing just the shoes that you wear, you can change the entire look.

I bought recently a few denim skirt, different washes, different styles and the pencil one is my favorite.

I used it in today’s outfit of the day to build a super chic but easy spring outfit. The weather was in the 60’s, so the knitted hoodie kept me warm enough so I didn’t need a jacket.

There is no need to say how much I love wearing socks with my high heels (I wrote a full post on that here). I’m doing it for years but I’ve seen that the combination is strongly back in the fashion game in 2018.

Let me know how do you like to wear your denim skirt in the comment box below. Have an awesome week my lovelies!

Scarf: the most fashionable accessory for 2018

The scarf it is for sure THE accessory for 2018. Spring/Summer or Fall/Winter, depending on the fabric they are present in a lot of stylings.

scarf

It is the most versatile accessory, because you can wear it anywhere: your head, your neck, even on your wrist as a cool bracelet or it can be tied around the handles of your bag.

This little accessory, it can definitely make a bold statement, as the perfect addition when your outfit needs just a little extra touch.

For today’s post, I chose to style the scarf underneath a hat. This styling changed the entire look, because without it, would  have been just a black button down shirt and a pair of leather pants.

What I like the most about this styling is the mysterious vibe created by the mixture of two different styles. The colorful scarves are extremely feminine and the hat just adds a masculine feel to the entire look.

I don’t mind playing with color at all, so when spring it is actually here I can’t wait to play with different colors and patterns scarves and mix them into my outfits.

How to wear the famous palazzo pants

In today’s post, I wanna talk about a super trendy pair of bottoms: the palazzo pants.

palazzo pants

Palazzo pants can be pretty tricky to style, but they can help you achieve any type of look: from uptown chic to downtown sexy.

They certainly have that versatility and with the right styling, you can take them from the office to a fancy rooftop party.

I have to say that I own a couple of pairs, but when I saw these ones at H&M, I had to buy another pair. Well, actually not one, but two. I tried on the black ones and I liked so much the fitting that I went for a hunt in the city to find the beige pair in my size. It was the first time when I liked an item so much that I bought an item in 2 different colors.

If you are looking to buy a pair of palazzo pants, I would suggest to go for a pair of high waisted ones, so you will create a more balanced look.

I’m sure that this is not going to be the last post about this pants, but I’ll style them different each and every time so you will have more styling ideas of the same item.

For the first styling idea, I wanted something casual for a super busy Sunday.

Choosing a pair of sneakers for the palazzo pants gave me that laid back vibe that I was looking for.

The ruffled details on the waist just makes these pants to stand up more. I added an oversized T-shirt, that instead of tucking it in, I made a little front knot. I found that gave a nice touch to the entire look.

Being a pretty much black and white outfit, I wanted a pop of color which this time it was my bag, that I completely love.

I wish you all a great week my lovelies,

Until next time, XoXo.

Valentine’s day outfit ideas

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, in today’s post I wanna share with you some outfit ideas for this magical day.

On Valentine’s Day we celebrate love… it’s about sharing and giving., even though we don’t necessarily need a certain day or date to do that.

Love it’s the most amazing emotion in our lives. It is what makes us humans and what makes life worth living.

It is never about the size of your house, your car’s brand, how big your bank account is, or  the beauty of your partner. All of these become insignificant, compared with what really makes us tremble.

It’s about hiding in your significant other’s arms after a bad day and feel safe. About having someone who shares your dreams. About that special person that puts a smile on your face in the morning just by seeing them.

Valentine’s Day it’s not only about giving chocolate and roses. How about giving this year your time? Be together, enjoying each other’s company, spend  quality time and make great memories.

I think it’s enough chick shit for one single post, so let’s move on and talk about outfits.

Us, girls, usually dress up for ourselves… however we feel like, without carrying about what other people have to say about it. Which is great, don’t get me wrong. However, if your beloved one makes an effort to take out for dinner at a fancy restaurant, it’s fair enough for us to wear something that they would like.

Trust me, they would rather be at home with you, watching Netflix & chill on the couch, then to go in a restaurant with hundreds of other people. But guess what? They do it, because you want to and because they care about what makes you happy.

Now if they would prefer you in a sexier look… Girl, you better put those high heels on and that gorgeous sexy dress that you never wear, because he deserves it.

Valentine’s Day it’s not only for couples. If you are single, you can plan a Galentine’s Day and have some fun with your besties.

You can definitely show some love to your friends that were next to you through good or bad. I think that kind of love deserves to be celebrated as well.

Smart casual: Dress pants and sneakers

Busy days require a simple, yet stylish look. Today, “the look” is about how we wear dress pants and sneakers.

dress pants and sneakers

To be honest, dress pants and sneakers it is a little of an understated look. I don’t understand why, because if done correctly it is super cool, fashionable and stylish. I don’t even have to say anything about how comfortable this look is.

The more elegant the trousers, the better, because the juxtaposition will create more of a balancing look.

When you want to go for this kind of look, what’s really important is the tailoring of the pants. You can wear them with a basic white t-shirt, but the dress pants need to have an impeccable fit. The reason why I’m saying this, it is because you really don’t want to look like you’re just commuting to work in your comfy shoes.

Bringing the look to the casual side by adding the sneakers and the white tee, I felt the need tp add a touch of glam. The pearl suspenders was the best accessory to complete the look.

I would highly recommend this outfit even for office, casual business meetings or even as a daily look, when your to do list seems never ending.

How to wear the flared jeans?

Flared jeans are one of those items that are again back on trend. They have an amazing silhouette that became famous in the 70’s. I have to confess: I always enjoyed that decade’s fashion.

flared jeans

So, if you are tired of your everyday skinny jeans, a great alternative will be the flare denim.

I want to say though, that they are not as easy to style, as your skinny ones. They require a little bit more attention to details.

For example, try a pair of flared jeans with a high waist to accentuate the curves that you actually want to. The bonus par: they will also give you an elongate silhouette.

When wearing this style of jeans, you need to keep in mind one word: balance.They look amazing with crop tops, waist length blazers or jackets.

As for shoes, I believe that the flared jeans look the best with high heels, platforms or even wedges. A high sole shoe, will make you definitely look taller and your legs like they don’t have an end. And that, it’s just any girl’s dream.

You don’t have to give up your trustworthy skinny jeans for a pair of flared ones, but they are a great addition to your closet, for when you want to try something fresh, something different.
