Comfy Chic with a bit of Fishnet tights

Coming up with different ways to style fishnet stockings is quite fun, this is the third week in which I'm dedicating an outfit post to them. Until now they were the star of the show, however they can also be worn subtly while adding an interesting vibe. They are barely visible, yet still catch your eye. 

This outfit is very laid back and comfy, combining trousers and a fluffy turtleneck sweater. As you'll notice, I rolled the trousers higher to make the fishnet tights more visible. For a pop, I added my snake statement ring, but also this new coat. 

From far away you would think it's just a simple black and white tartan coat, however if you look closely you'll notice the blue line running through it. You guys know how much I love simple/minimal pieces with unexpected yet special details, so this had to be mine. Not just because of the colourful surprise, but also because that colour happens to be teal. It was made for me! 

What do you think about this look? It's very me when I want to dress up simply and comfortably. 

Have a pink-tastic day!

Sunday Style Inspo

Hey Dolls!

Sorry I've missed Friday's posts, sadly I have caught the flu. I'm feeling better today and hopefully will be able to share new outfits next week. Until then, I want to share my favourite pieces from the new Dolce & Gabbana show, which took place today in Milan. As usual everything looked not only gorgeously feminine, but also full of life in true Italian spirit.

During the next weeks I'll share more favourites from different fashion shows, as always roaming through the pictures of Vogue.

Did you love the Dolce & Gabbana show?

Have a pink-tastic day!

Metallic Skirt & Bell Sleeves

Spring is so close you can smell it in the air! Nature is slowly starting to bloom again and the fashion choices are getting lighter and cheerful. To make things more fun, I'm sharing today's look also in video format.

Like I mentioned while styling this skirt the first time (here), pleated skirts are very feminine and romantic by nature, so in order to create some contrast, I styled it in a sporty way. 

What do you think?

Blue Roses & Bow Mules

A few weeks back I shared a "Style Inspo" all about mules, so it was time to share an outfit wearing the fabulous shoe trend. To be fair these aren't actually mules, they're a pair of statement sandals (wore them also here), but I put the strap inside. Before you ask, they were quite comfortable as mules, not to mention they also complimented the outfit quite beautifully. 

If you recall, in my last post of January I shared a layered look with a bandage crop over a dressy shirt. Since layering is so much fun, today I layered a floral dress over a dressy shirt creating a spring look. 

This dress is quite old, it survived all of my closet clearings, because I still love it, even if I rarely wear it. It has to do with the fact that my favourite flowers are blue roses and as you can see this dress is full of them. So, if you ever want to buy me flowers, definitely go for blue roses. 

What's you favourite flower?

Fishnets and Space Buns

Mother Nature has been incredibly generous with Milan, offering a full week of sunny and warm days. A bit of wind from time to time, but overall it felt like spring is almost here. Hopefully this won't jinx it, because I'm most certainly getting addicted to the warmth of the beams on my cheeks. 

Fishnet stockings had a bad reputation until a year or so ago, but now they're the perfect detail for some edge, transforming a simple look into something sassy. Last week I shared a look pairing them with a skirt and I hope to bring you even more looks on how to style them in different ways. 

Don't you find it funny how I blend in with the window shop in the background? That was not intentional! 

Today's look pairs fishnet tights with culottes and pumps. Keeping it simple, I added a crop top and a grey coat to top it off. Accessories wise, I opted for dainty golden rings and a choker with gold ring. You'll notice the pumps also have gold details. To brighten up the look, I added a teal clutch. For something a bit different, I styled my hair with two braids that end in space buns. 

What do you think?

Sunday Style Inspo

For this week's style inspo we're going to approach a lifestyle subject. I want to share some holiday inspiration with some of the most beautiful islands. Of course, if you don't like being by the water, this post won't be as appealing. However, if you're like me and could spend all your days on the beach admiring the mesmerizing ocean, then you're going to love it. Sadly, I haven't visited all, but they sure are on my list. Now, need to go create some strategies on how to visit these as soon as possible. See you tomorrow with a new outfit post!

Which is your dream destination?

Have a pink-tastic day!

Happiness in Gold Tones

Today is all about happiness! The sun was out for a couple of moments, which meant I managed to shoot a few pictures for you. I've been dying to share a look with this metallic pleated skirt. Pleated skirts are by nature very feminine and romantic, but with a little bit of creativity they can also be sporty or edgy. To give it an edgy vibe I styled it with fishnet tights, a choker and leather jacket. To make it look more casual, I added a pom pom hat and a loose fitted shirt. Put all the elements together and it transforms the elegant pleated skirt into something more relaxed with an avant-garde element. 

Back to happiness! Let's talk about my gorgeous rings from Happiness Boutique. The boutique carries beautiful designs and qualitative products at affordable prices, not to mention they come in the cutest packaging. This is a german brand born from the wish to spread happiness and inspire people. I mean...who doesn't love a brand with a lovely philosophy?! 

The two rings I'm rocking are rose gold plated titanium and as you can see they have a minimalist and chic look. I've been obsessed with the evil eye ring (clickable links at the end). Sadly the wrap one is a bit too big for me, but I still wanted to show it to you. Another fun thing is their reward program and bi-monthly giveaways, which you should definitely check out when purchasing. The lovely girls at Happiness Boutique also offered me a 10% discount code for you, my beautiful readers, it's carinavardie, so make sure to use it when purchasing.

While the items were sent to me, this isn't a paid post! These are my genuine opinions, I do not gain anything from the links!

Have a pink-tastic day!

Preppy in the Rain

The weather in Milan has been very photography unfriendly this past week, so it was time to get creative and start styling around my rain boots. These are very simple riding boots ( bought them on a site specialized in horse riding gear), so they are quite easy to style. In really bad lighting you might even confuse them with elegant leather boots. The slick aesthetic made me fall in love with them.

For a change of pace, this weekend we decided to visit a museum and found out there was a Manolo Blahnik exhibit in Milan. I literally squealed and annoyed my boyfriend into going, God bless his soul for putting up with me. 😹 In case you happen to visit Milan, the exhibit is on until April and I really recommend it. Most of you won't know this about me, but I wanted to be a shoe designer. It was my favorite fashion piece to design and the one I was good at. Anyway, I posted a lot of Insta stories, like always, so in case you don't follow me on Insta, you should. Click here to remedy that. Shameless plug, I know.  

Outfit wise, I'm still incorporating summery pieces in my winter wardrobe. This time pairing a white jacquard dress with a black dressy shirt, tights and rain/riding boots, let's not forget the pearl choker for a touch of edgy elegance. 

If the rain keeps up, you'll be seeing more of these rain boots. It's a fun challenge to show you can be stylish even in unfavorable weather conditions. 

What's your go-to shoe choice when it's pouring rain?

Sunday Style Inspo

Slip dresses were the 90s must have, that have returned and have been ruling our streets since last year. We all know to well that fashion tends to repeat itself! 

The slip dress carries this name because of the resemblance with an underslip. As an undergarment it deputed in the 1940s, having the chore of keeping warm and preventing your intimates of being on display. As the 1970s came, designers started to incorporate the slip in their garments and people well out of love with the underslip. However it was reinvented in the 90s because of its seductive appeal and now, after tossing it aside for a few years, we fell back in love with this flirty silhouette. Today I want to share some cool slip dress inspirations.

What I Eat in a Day + Workout

For this week's video I prepared something a bit different. I love food and cooking, so you're going to see a typical day. Well...not that typical, because I'm also doing a workout, which is very rare these days. 

I would say my meals are quite balanced, they include protein, veggies and carbs. The stuffed pasta shells are a bit naughty, but that's why they're filled with homemade ragu, to make me feel a bit better about devouring that cheesy goodness. 

To make it enjoyable for the people who don't love food as much as I do, there is also a bit of Milan sightseeing included. 

Hope you enjoy the video! Please subscribe!

Have a pink-tastic day!
