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!

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

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.

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.

Camouflage vibes: the camo jacket

The camouflage print it’s been on trend since the 90’s. In the lasts couple of years, a statement piece, especially for the winter outfits it was the camo jacket.

camo jacket

The camo jacket it’s a one of a kind, because we can wear it all year round. It works great for the cooler summer nights as a light jacket, or during winter with a knit sweater and a cozy scarf.

Maybe if you have asked me a few years ago what I think about wearing camouflage print, the answer would have been no. It was the exact same case with the leopard print or latex.

Even before I started this blog, I decided to expand my horizon and step outside my comfort zone more often. I ended up feeling more comfortable and confident wearing pieces that I never thought I would.

Back to our topic of the day. Even though the camo jacket inspires a little masculinity, it can be very sexy.

I have to admit that I like a lot a look where feminine meets tomboy style. I like a lot how this camo jacket looks with jeans. But it is something about it that makes me always to mix it with dresses or skirts.

For today’s outfit, I paired my camo jacket with a mini black denim skirt and a gray sweatshirt. I finished up the look by adding a pair of combat boots that gives a badass vibe to the entire look.

There is though one more thing about the camouflage print that I wanna mention. There is enough just one piece with this print to polish a look. It is a statement print so our attention should be focus on one single item.

To make the camo print stand out, I like to mix it with neutral colors: whites, blacks and greys.

Let’s rock this new week, my lovelies. I wish you have a great one. XoXo

Turtleneck midi bodycon dress

Lately I’ve been into buying basic pieces, that I can dress them up or down and mix them with some statement ones. That was my reason when I bought this turtleneck midi bodycon dress.

turtleneck dress

I was on the hunt for the perfect black turtleneck dress for ages. I just didn’t find one that would match my criteria.

All I wanted was a turtleneck dress made of a thick material, so I can wear it in the cold months too. It would have a mid-calf length and long sleeves. Trust me, it wasn’t easy, but I scored when I found this one at Zara.

There are a lot of days when I feel that I don’t have anything to wear (I’m sure you know the feeling) or when I’m just too tired to think of a complex outfit. Then all I would want is to go outside in my PJ and put 0 effort in getting ready.

This kind of dresses it was for sure created for those kind of days. Super easy to style, they allow you to dress them up or down just by choosing what shoes are you going to wear.

It is a super comfortable dress, but it’s very sexy in the same time. I can say that is my version of a LBD for the winter.

I styled mine with a short silver biker jacket too add a little contrast with the dress. The booties have a little bit of a heel but they are comfortable to walk around in them.

The beauty of such a simple turtleneck dress is that you can go crazy with the accessories without being too much.

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!

How to wear sweatpants with high heels

Hello my lovelies,

Sweatpants and high heels together? Yes, please. It seems like we live in decade, when putting together sporty pieces with feminine ones, is not only more than acceptable, but super cool and trendy.

The sweatpants and high heels combo is back on its fashion track. When you think of sweatpants, you see them paired with sneakers, flip flops or in the cold season with UGG. And when it comes high heels, we think about something really feminine like dresses, skirts, dress pants or jeans. How about we step out of the ordinary and experiment by mixing these 2 together. The rules are not broken… we are creating new rules.

Of course that it was a time, when such a combination it was a totally fashion faux pas, but in the end, isn’t style a form of self expression? If you feel that a certain look represents you, don’t hold back, go for it babe.

If you want to go for this kind of look, I would suggest to mix a simple pair of sweatpants in a classic color, with some really feminine heels: strap sandals, pumps or stilettos.

In conclusion, it is a laid back look but uber sexy.

I hope you have a great time tomorrow with your families and give thanks for all the beautiful things that you have in your lives. Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you for reading me and for being a big part of my life.

Fall outfit ideas for Thanksgiving day

Hello my lovelies,

Since I moved to the States, there is a holiday, that we didn’t have it back home, but I totally love it. Thanksgiving.

Simply because it means just quality time spent with your family. It is not about presents, on this day, the best present that you can give or get it’s just being with the ones that you love the most.

I know that this time can also be a little bit stressful, with all the cooking and baking (unfortunately I can’t help you with that), but I got your back setting your outfit for the day.

Even though we spend time surrounded by our family or closest friends, it’s a holiday so I wouldn’t recommend showing up in sweatpants and sneakers.

I put together 3 different Thanksgiving outfit ideas, so you can choose what will fit you best.

Outfit no. 1

When I created this outfit, I thought that it would be just perfect for a family reunion dinner. It is casual but super chic and what I like the most is that is very comfortable if you want to play in the leaves or throw a ball in the backyard with the kids.

Sweater: H&M/ Jeans: Levi’s/ Hat: Lucky Brand/ Boots: here/ Necklace & Bag: Zara

Outfit no.2

For the second outfit, I was thinking what if I need to go, at a Thanksgiving   dinner where I’m going to meet my boyfriend’s family for the first time. Well girl, that’s stressful… what am I supposed to wear? So I decided to go for a girly girl look, feminine but cute. That’s why I chose the floral skirt that I decided to pair it with a simple black turtle neck (no cleavage needed, trust me), you’re a good girl and their son is in good hands. Don’t choose a skirt that is too short, because grandma will be there too 😉 Be girlie, feminine, but decent and the most important: be you, let them know the real you and they’ll love you.

Turtle neck: H&M/ Skirt: Bershka/ Faux fur vest: Bershka/ OTK Boots: here, Bag: Ross

Outfit no. 3

For this look, I pictured a dinner with my closest friends. It is a casual elegant look, even if I chose a pair of black skinny jeans, I kept it pretty classy with my shirt. The jacket it is for sure the star of the show and the rest of the outfit being black is popping out for  sure.

Textured jacket: Tularosa/ Jeans: Hudson/ Shirt: COS/ Shoes: ZAra/ Bag: Karl Lagerfeld

 

whatever you choose to wear, keep your tops a little loose, so you have room for all that delicious turkey, baby.

Have a great time with your families and Happy Thanksgiving!

XoXo, OD!
