Sweater dress and over the knee boots

Hello my lovelies,

If I had to choose my favorite fall pieces, it would have to be for sure an oversized sweater dress and some over the knee boots. Besides the fact that they go perfect hand in hand, they also give you that relaxed, yet super trendy look.

As much as I love OTK boots, I don’t own too many pairs, simply because they don’t fit me. Almost all of them are super large for me and I just don’t like the way they look.

I was super excited to find this pair at Aldo because they are super stretchy (basically they look like an over the knee sock) so they fit me like a dream.

When it comes to sweater dresses, my favorite are the ones that are slightly oversized and can be worn with combat boots or sneakers, if I want to dress them down, but also with a pair of heeled OTK boots, for a more elegant look. I think that they are super comfy, warm and just perfect for the fall season.

You definitely have to own a few sweater dresses, because they are one of those items that you can’t go wrong with.

I decided to give up any necklaces and accessorize my sweater dress with this cute bee brooch. Brooches are super back on trend and I have to admit they are my favorite accessory. For sure you will see more of them in future posts, because I wear them on shirts, coats, belts, hats, almost everything.

How to wear leather pants

 

Hello my lovelies,

I already told you in a previous post, that one of my favorite fabrics to wear when fall comes, it’s leather. I talked here about my favorite leather dress, or in this post about how to style pleated midi leather skirt.

Today is all about the leather pants. They have been on trend forever and if worn correctly, they can give the most stylish, chic or elegant look.

When styling leather pants, you have to be careful what are you going to pair them with. I usually like to create a contrast between fabrics, so for example, to achieve an elegant look, I like to mix the leather pants with a super feminine lace top.

In today’s outfit post, I wanted to do a casual look, something more street style. I have this pair of leather pants for over a year, but I didn’t wear them once, because they don’t have that perfect fit, cigarette cut that I prefer. I ended up loving how they look, paired with this super loose knit sweater.

Being an all black outfit, I wanted to add a pop of color by wearing this super interesting pair of pumps. What’s so special about them? They are not leather, it’s more of a perforated fabric that sets them on the casual side.

To finish off the look, I added this stylish hat, that made the perfect match with the shades.

I hope you had an awesome weekend,

Glen plaid skirt

Hello my lovelies,

It’s not just sweater and knits season, fall is also great to wear some plaid pattern pieces.

The glen plaid is a combination of small and large checks and usually we can find it in muted neutrals (gray, brown, beige and black). The beauty of this color scheme is that it gives you unlimited possibilities for mixing it with other colors.

This print makes me think of fall for sure, but trust me, I couldn’t put on anything more than a skirt and a T-shirt, because October in LA means over 100 degrees F (38C). It has been pretty challenging to come up with great fall outfit ideas, when all I want to wear are super light beach dresses.

Some of you guys, that are actually enjoying the nice October weather, you can also wear this outfit just by throwing a coat or blazer over your shoulder.

Being a pencil skirt with a plaid pattern it will make you think first of an office outfit, so I definitely wanted to take it out of that zone and style it a little different.

I went more for a casual-elegant look, dressed down the skirt by adding the T-shirt, but still kept a little of it’s elegancy with the high heels.

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.

How are you wearing yours?

Funky pencil skirt

Hello my lovelies,

When I start putting together my outfits, I always do it accordingly to how I feel.

If you ask my friends to use one word to describe me, they will say for sure – bubbly. I am a fun-crazy kid, with a bubbly personality, so I feel that a funky kind of style represents me the most.

I am a total sucker for crazy prints: animé, cartoons, pop art, everything that is colorful and fun.

When I saw this skirt at TopShop, I felt in love with the print. I though that I can create a lot of looks that will show more of my bubbly personality.

Be fun, dress funky, even if your outfit is not perfectly composed, the most important thing is how you feel when you are wearing it.

I had a lot of fun during this photoshoot and I just let my inner kid to come out and play with some balloons.
