How to wear a kimono with jeans

Hello lovelies,

We see it in the window of every store right now- the trendy kimono. Patterned usually with lots of flowers in bloom, or even palm trees fronds, it is incredibly appealing and you definitely can be temped by the fabulous print, but are we ready to wear it outside?

I told you before that I’m totally digging the pijama trend, which I think is totally stylish, so of course I love the kimono’s but the last thing that we want is to look like we forgot to take off our loungewear robe.

Styling a kimono it is really simple and requires the most basic attire: a T-shirt and some skinny jeans.

If you want to create an outfit using a kimono as your center piece, you should give the entire look the idea of effortless, like the kimono is was thrown on careless. Personally, I wouldn’t recommend trying to match the design, or adding more layers than the jeans and a T-shirt, because your entire look will look over-thought, which is exactly the opposite of an “I didn’t try too much” outfit.

Get your Gingham game on

Hello my lovelies,

The power of gingham print, was back strong in the game this season: from skirts to swimwear, in the form of a ruffled blouse, or a off-the-shoulder dress, we’ve seen it everywhere.

No matter in which category your personal style fits, I`m sure that there is out there a gingham piece that will suit your taste.

Even if seems so much fun to wear a gingham pattern item, it’s still a print, so it can be tricky to style, especially if you are not into the girly girl type of look.

When I saw this super cute wrap blouse, I immediately decided to get it because it is a combination of 3 trends that I’m totally loving right now: pearls, gingham pattern and ruffled sleeves.

I enjoyed a lot how the whole outfit came together, pairing the blouse with this flare pants, in this gorgeous blush color… it just makes the shirt and the pattern to stand out more.

I’m still in the hunt for the perfect gingham skirt, so I hope that the trend is not going anywhere soon. I would enjoy to play a little bit more and have fun creating unique outfits with this print.

Have a great weekend babes, XO!

How to wear blazer and denim shorts

Hello my lovelies,

If you are familiar with my blog, you know that for me fashion and style means combining pieces that we wouldn’t normally wear them together. This was also the main idea behind this outfit: you would not necessarily mix a pair of denim shorts, which are totally casual, with an elegant black blazer.

It is a street style outfit that is really appealing and will make you look fabulous, without trying too much.

What I like a lot about this look is that you can mix almost any shoes with it: high heels to rock your girls night out, sneakers, if you have to run some errands around the city, and even flats for an end of summer romantic walk with your love.

Being mid September, add a pair of combat boots and make it the perfect summer to fall transition outfit.

It is one of my favorite looks and I think that makes you look put together with items, that you have for sure in your dressing.

Floral Romper

Hello my lovelies,

I really enjoyed seeing girls wearing rompers, because they are a simple choice that you can`t go wrong with. We find them in all lengths, shapes, fabrics, patterns… girl, you have a big variety to choose from.

I wanted a short romper so, my only problem was that I couldn’t find one to fit me right and not make my feet look like two sticks ( I know they are not far from that, but still).

When I saw this cute romper at Zara, I could’ve bet that it will not work for me…well, I had a big surprise in the fitting room… I loved it. I like the flower pattern and the little ruffles on the shoulders. To run around the city, on a hot Cali summer day, I chose to wear it with a pair of flat sandals, but it will look as gorgeous with a pair of high heels for a night out.

I really hope that I can find more jumpsuits/rompers to fit me, because I enjoy their comfortability and the fact that you can create a sharp outfit with no effort.

If you choose a monochromatic romper you can definitely go heavy with the accessories, but if your romper has an interesting pattern, you will need very little accessorizing and your outfit is ready. Go and rock the day my dear!

Shirt-dress fever

Hello my lovelies,

In this spring-summer preferences, we find up top the shirt-dress: it’s casual, easy to wear and flattering for all the silhouettes.

They are basically a long button-down shirt, slightly oversized, it looks like a basic shirt (their upper half – sleeves and collar, gives them that semi-elegant look) but has the perfect length to be a dress.

When we are talking about styling shirt-dresses, I think that the shoes set the tone of the outfit and also the way you choose to accessorize it, depending the time of the day and the location.

Being a stylistically hybrid, the shirt-dress offers a lot of styling alternatives to the ones ready to go outside their comfort zone and play with it.

Denim Skirt

Hello my lovelies,

As you saw from the title, today I want to talk about another denim piece: the skirt.

They`ve been around for a couple of decades, but I feel that the denim skirt trend is booming this summer more than ever.

There are a couple of changes, that have been made to the old denim skirt that we used to know: different lengths, distressed details, acid wash touches, and so on.

What I love the most about these fabulous skirts is their versatility. You don’t need a full set of styling skills in order to create a multitude of looks with your favorite denim skirt… all you need is to let your personality shine through and juggle from that casual-sporty girl, to classic girl or even edgy girl. This piece will make dressing so easily because there is nothing you can’t do with a denim skirt.

For today’s look, I chose to tuck in a basic white tee, some fun sneakers and add my favorite summer accessory: sunflowers!
