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.

How to rock the denim on denim trend

Double denim trend or denim on denim, whatever you want to call it, it’s been around for ages, but it’s one of those that won’t be going anywhere soon.

double denim

I sent my friend a picture with outfit (because the jeans were a gift from her) and what she told me it was funny. She was asking me if denim on denim it’s still on trend, because she loves to wear it but she thought that she was out of fashion. So Cami, this post is for you and for all of you that love double denim trend and you want to do it the right way.

Even thought it might look a pretty hard trend to nail it, I promise you it is not.

As a main rule, that you should follow on styling double denim is that the colors and the washes have to be completely different.

If you wanna go for a dark blue denim jacket make sure you pair it with a light washed pair of jeans. Or the other way around: light wash denim shirt with some black or gray jeans.

When doing this type of a look, I always look for pieces that fit me perfectly. It is a look that works better with slim cuts. So, a good tip will be to try it with your skinny jeans rather than your baggy ones.

A denim blue shirt with a pair of white jeans is my to go double denim look. It is a gorgeous look for summer time.

My denim shirt it’s pretty long so I prefer to tuck it in my jeans and leave more buttons open.

I kept my styling pretty simple and just layered some necklaces for the extra feminine touch. I wanted to complete the look with a pair of summer-ish shoes, and this wedges were the perfect.

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 prĂȘt-Ă -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 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!

Powerful floral print suit

Hello my lovelies,

If we think about suits, usually the first thing that we say is business attire, dark colors, basically boring … but my dear, that has changed.

Starting with this spring, we started to see more and more suit-sets with powerful floral prints. I am totally digging the trend because it’s fun to wear and you can play with the blazer or the pants mixing them with other pieces.

When I saw this suit, I already imagined myself styling it in so many different ways.

The most simple way to wear this suit is adding a pair of stilettos, for that elegant – sophisticated look.

I also chose to go for a more unusual styling, and yes, I know that suits equal elegant, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t add a pair of sneakers, a white T-shirt and call it a day.

I put together for you also 2 looks, in which I incorporated the blazer and the pants with other items.

T-shirt: Drew

Shoes: Steve Madden

Accessories: H&M and Guess

Sunglasses: Miu Miu

 

Jeans: Zara

T-shirt: American Eagle

Shoes: Christian Louboutin

I felt in love with the location where I shot the last pictures of the look… don’t forget that love is everywhere and you might find it in the places where you least expect.

 

 

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.

The perfect pair of pants for this summer

Hello my lovelies,

It’s summer, baby! As you can see, cropped flowy wide-legs pants are on the racks of every store in different silhouettes, colors, lengths, patterns. I think that they are the perfect pair of pants for the summer because they are extremely comfortable and light-weight in the heat.

When I was thinking before at a pair of wide-legs pants, I didn’t believe that I would enjoy wearing this ankle length style. All of my flare pants were, either covering my shoes completely, or just a few inches above my knee (culottes). Now I felt in love with them and I have a lot of fun creating new outfits for different occasions.

It takes no effort to throw them on and their biggest attribute is that provide endless styling options. Add a T-shirt and sneakers (which I did as well) when you are out for a walk or running errands, or a button-down and some high-heels for a summer dinner on a nice patio. It doesn’t matter which way you choose to style them, the look is flattering and really chic.

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!
