Romantic Girlboss Look

Hello Dolls! 

Today I felt like combining romantic elements with elegant "#girlboss" ones. The off shoulder trend is still going strong, which is why it's fun to slowly transition it into fall. Not gonna lie, creating transitioning looks with 30 degrees outside is kind of a tough task, but it's also enjoyable. 

The lace top is feminine and delicate, while the wide leg/palazzo pants are formal and elegant. The chignon makes the outfit even more polished, it's simple, sophisticated and sleek. For this look I ditched the choker and added a dainty necklace, but a statement snake ring. You know I love snake accessories. 

Do you like this mix of styles?

Have a pink-tastic day!

Structured Vest as a Dress

Vests are versatile pieces that can be worn to work or for a cocktail. They make you look put-together and chic with little to no effort. A fun way of styling them is as a dress, like I did today, and here are some tips on achieving the look:
  1. Quite essential would be a bodycon dress layered underneath, cause we need to keep it decent. 
  2. Add a colour blocking belt that has some details for more texture.
  3. When you fasten the vest, try fixing it to the side creating a slit. While walking, your leg will show and this will elongate you. 
  4. Add some fun accessories. 
  5. Add some ballerinas, if you're wearing this at the office, or high heels for a cocktail look. 
As you can see I opted for a choker and studded belt, both offer an edgy feel to the outfit creating more dimension. For the rest of the accessories, I opted for dainty bracelets and bow ballerinas  which compliment the bow belt. The look is classy, elegant but with a touch of edgy. 

What do you think?

Sunday Style Inspo

Today I want to talk about slits, which have made their way from the runway to the red carpet and then, finally, to the street-style scene. They're not the latest trend, just one that is here to stay and mesmerise us while flowing in the breeze. 

Dresses or skirts with slits, be it thigh high or lower, are flirty and sexy, but also chic. They are fun to style and wear, while instantly giving that runway feel. While wearing them, especially if there's wind, you get that sassy, confident and playful attitude. However, don't get me wrong, slits are fun also in tops or pants, not just dresses and skirts. 

While shooting my last outfit, some random guy on the street had a rather vocal opinion about the way I dressed, considering it shameful, indecent and other nonsense. I don't respond to such people nor do I care about their opinion. Why am I telling you this? Because neither should you! If at any moment someone gets the wrong idea, that they are entitled to badmouth your look, keep your head high and keep walking hun! As long as you know you're decently dressed, your personal style shouldn't suffer because of random people. I've said it so many times, but fashion is about experimenting and having fun. You get to dress however you wish, not everyone will like it or approve of it, but that sure doesn't give them the right to badmouth you. 

Have a pink-tastic day!

Striped Jumpsuit & Choker

After styling this jumpsuit on vacation, I've been thinking how to give it a different vibe. The jumpsuit has both horizontal and vertical stripes, off shoulder sleeves, but also slits. To compliment it I went for my Prada bow ballerinas, a delicate choker and round "Ozzy" style sunglasses. 

As you've seen, I've been obsessed with chokers and this is one of the newest addition to my small collection. Chokers have appeared since 1798 and have been worn since then by ballerinas, royals and fashionable ladies. They had a huge moment in the 90's and now they're back, being all over the runways and street-style scene. 

What do you think?

Pop of Red & Structured Crop

Yay for internet, finally! You really don't realise how dependent we are on internet until you remain without it for a few weeks. Except the lack of networking, it wasn't too bad. Went outside more, ahahah, but that could also be because I love strolling and exploring the cities I live in. Now, to the outfit:

Today is all about that pop of red we all love, in this case both on my lips and shorts. Red is such a sexy and flirty colour, which I often like to wear, especially on my lips. It's just a "girlboss" colour, that looks good all the time. I'm not the kind of woman to wear bold lipstick only at night, as I'm sure you saw by now on the blog. If I like it, I'll wear it to work, to the market or anywhere I need to be. It's all about the attitude, so if you feel empowered wearing a bold lipstick, be it red, purple, blue or black, it doesn't really matter what others think on the street, now does it?! 

This time I paired the red shorts with a structured blouse, which is cropped and loose. It has black floral appliqu├ęs on the collar and a black stripe down the middle. Though very minimalist in design, the blouse has beautiful details, which is why I plan to style it more in the future. To go with the black and white theme, I added my zebra loafers. Of course, you don't have to match your bag with shoes and with your blouse, it's just that sometimes it's fun to be matchy matchy. 

Do you like being matchy matchy at times?

Have a pink-tastic day!
Kisses.
