Plaid for fall

Plaid trend started to be the biggest fall fashion trend in 2017. It continued it’s popularity through out the spring season, and here we are… Fall 2018 – plaid everywhere: plaid skirt, pants, blazers, etc. plaid skirt Instead of going away, this trend gain even more popularity and we can definitely talk about this pattern being timeless. With that being said, you can start buying some plaid garments (if you don’t have any already) to add them to your closet. Usually, I love to go for a gray scale when I’m wearing a plaid item, but when I saw this skirt I was immediately attracted by the beige tones. The earthy tones made it the perfect skirt for the fall season. I thought about this outfit as a perfect transitional summer to fall look. If it’s getting a little bit colder you just need to throw a jacket over your shoulders and you are fall ready ūüôā It is also a really versatile skirt. I shot this look while I was on vacation in Romania and when it got colder (around 34F – 2C) I just added some thermal tights, a pair of combat boots, cozy sweater and a leather jacket. You’ve seen in my previous posts, that I really like pleated midi skirts. I find them really flattering and they give you endless options of styling. You can take them from edgy to classy-elegant just by changing of your shoes. A plaid skirt is definitely something that you need to start playing with this fall. Is super trendy and also fun to mix it with different patterns. plaid skirt plaid skirt plaid skirt   plaid skirt plaid skirt   T-shirt: American Eagle Skirt:¬†here Backpack: American Eagle Shoes: Converse Sunglasses: Gucci

My summer jam: floral maxi dress

When I think about hot summer days and long walks on the beach, my jam is for sure a floral maxi dress.

You have to love such an easy dress that you just throw it on and look so put together.

Honestly, I was always drawn to maxi dresses, but I never got one, until this summer. I simply did’t fine one before to have the length that I was looking for.

When comes to this particular type of dresses, I like them extra long, even though, I don’t wear them with hells or wedges.

I normally pair a maxi dress with a pair of flat sandals, or some cute slippers.

What I love the most about this floral maxi dress, are the little of the shoulder sleeves. It makes it extra feminine and sexy in the same time.

The buttons, that go all the way down, gives you the opportunity of wearing it in different ways. If you want to show off a little more skin, just unbutton it how much you want and it looks like a dress with a sexy slit.

Of course that being such a feminine dress, I paired it with some edgy booties to change completely the look.

Shooting this outfit in the desert, I felt that the boots were actually completing the look.

I just love everything about this dress: the pattern, the colors, fabric which is really light and of course the off the shoulders sleeves.

How do you like to wear you summer floral maxi dress?

I hope you have an amazing week, my lovelies.

Printed shorts: a fresh summer look

Printed shorts are the thing¬†this summer. We’ve seen them everywhere with a variety of pattern to choose from: animals, flowers, leaves, palm trees… you can definitely find the right one for you.

printed shorts

When we talk about wearing shorts, we automatically think of them as a very casual alternative. However, I’m all about dressing them up sometimes to create a more stylish alternative.

Shorts are definitely one of the most versatile piece in your closet, because it helps you creating endless looks for summer.

On the other hand, when we talk about printed shorts in particular, they are just the puzzle piece that you need in order to create a statement.

I cannot get enough of wearing bold color designs in the summer, because besides the fact that they are really fun to wear, they are also really chic and will always give you a fresh look.

As I was saying, I wanted to dress up the shorts a little bit, so I paired them with an ultra feminine chiffon top and a cute pair of high heels.

If you think that styling a pair of printed shorts it’s difficult, let me prove you wrong. To be in the safe zone, just add a plain top. That way, you keep the focus on the pattern of the shorts but you also balance the entire look, in the same time.

How to rock the socks trend this spring

I’ve written a post before about the socks trend (here), but I love it so much that I’m getting into it again.

socks trend

Wearing socks and sandals or high heels it is the trendiest accessory combo that you have to try it this spring.

And when I say socks, I’m talking about all of them: sport, embellished, mesh, or even crazy neon colors… everything that stands out.

I’m not saying that is the easiest look to put together, but it is definitely something worth trying.

You can do this little accessory combo when you want to make a simple outfit stand out more.

I’m a big fan of wearing sports/tennis socks with ultra feminine strappy sandals for that nice touch of contrast.

In today’s post, I wanted a pair of more thinner, way dressier pair of socks. I wanted a pair of embellished socks for a really long time, but I didn’t have any luck finding the right pair. So, what do you do when you can’t find something that you truly like? You do it yourself.

Even though, I’m not a crafty person by all means, and I wasn’t endowed with too much patience, I decided that I should give it a try.

After a few long hours and some “hard work” I finished up these beauties. I think I will give another try to socks design because I really enjoyed doing it.

I wore the with different pairs of shoes and they looked stunning each and every time. I also got a lot of compliments wearing them and everyone was asking me where did I get them.

This socks and shoe combo helped me take out the ordinary zone this cute leather dress. Being such a simple dress, it needed something to make it pop.

Are you going to try this trend this spring?

I wish you an amazing week!

XoXo, OD

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!

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.

floral print shirt

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.

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.

Shorts and over the knee sock boots

Even though, most of us put our shorts away for the fall and winter season, I don’t think that we necessarily have to do that. We can definitely can wear shorts during winter and still look amazing. Of course that we need to find a way to style them and be warm in the same time.

shorts

My favorite way of wearing them during winter is with a pair of over the knee boots.

The OTK boots are for sure the shoes of the season and they will also keep your legs warm.

I would suggest though, to choose a pair of short pants that are not light weight. Denim, wool, suede or leather are great fabric options.

If the fabric is a little bit thicker they will look great styled with a pair of opaque black tights and some booties.

I decided to go for a fun colorful look and style my shorts with a blue sweater and a yellow blazer. The rhinestone flowers on my pants add them a little touch of elegancy.

In conclusion, even if it’s winter, don’t put away all your summer clothes, because they are some pieces that with the right styling, we can create some super cool winter outfits.

Pleats obsession – suede pleated skirt

There is no secret how much I love a nice and girly pleated skirt. Mini or midi, skinny knife pleats or wide paneled pleats, they are my favorite.

pleated skirt

It is for sure the fact that they are not longer anymore just for preppy school girls.

They are super on trend and we’ve seen them paired with unexpected textures, or items such as moto jackets, oversized sweaters or even hoodies.

I think suede it is a very appropriate fabric for fall or winter because it looks great worn with leggings or opaque tights,

Styling mini skirts can be tricky, especially because you don’t wanna look tacky. Try to mix it with a shirt, a simple tee or an oversized sweater.

Usually a pleated skirt gives you a girly girl look. If you don’t want to achieve that look, throw a pair of combat boots and you’ll have the perfect mix between girly and tomboy.

Even though it is a very short skirt, this one has like a pair of shorts under. I like that a lot because you can move comfortably without worrying that you might show your tush by mistake.

The sweater that I’m wearing today it is one of my favorites too. It’s that piece that can make any simple outfit to pop up. The huge sequins are that little extra extra that your outfit needs.

Embroidered mini skirt

Happy Monday my lovelies! I don’t know exactly what happened, but this fall I have a thing for embroidered pieces and for patterns. This gorgeous embroidered mini skirt it is my first item since all this embroidery fever started.

embroidered mini skirt

The pattern and the detailing it is absolutely stunning and the unbelievable part is that it costs only 30$.

I know this skirt might not be new for you, we’ve already seen it almost all over the fashion blogosphere. The strange part is that I still wanted it, even though, usually it doesn’t matter how much I like something, if everyone has it, I’m not getting it anymore.

Well, with this skirt, it was a different story. For some reason, the pattern and the embroidered fabric reminds me of the traditional Romanian costumes. With Christmas being so close, I am a little more emotional than usual. So, every time I’m wearing this skirt I have a melancholic smile on my face, because it reminds me of my family and the place where I grew up.

We’ve seen this embroidered mini skirt incorporated in a lot of summer outfits.Usually, worn with white t-shirts or tops. I saw it more appropriate for fall, so I paired it with a cozy sweater and a faux fur vest.

Anytime I’m wearing this vest I get a million compliments.Everyone tells me that is pretty hard to believe that it is a faux fur. It looks and feels extraordinary real but it is not.

It’s true that I don’t wear real fur, especially when we have such great alternatives.

I hope you all have a great week ahead full of fulfillment.

XoXo, OD!
