Multitasking Skirt

The wedding season is in a full swing. I personally have 4 weddings this summer (excluding the ones I had in the spring and will have in late fall). Dressing for weddings can get to be pretty expensive. It’s a girl thing to have to buy a new dress for every wedding. And with new dress, we usually want to buy shoes that go exactly with that dress. Then hair, makeup, and the bill can add up pretty quickly. In the last few years I have had about 5 weddings per year on average, so imagine how many dresses and shoes that is. Well, I personally will commit offense of wearing one dress to more than just one wedding. I am not a fan of dresses that are too dressy, especially satin ones, so my dresses give me the flexibility to wear them to other events throughout the year. Usually the dress I buy is not too formal. To make is more formal all I do is change up the shoes, accessories, hair and makeup. I love versatility when it comes to any piece of clothing, especially a dress.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
But who says we have to wear dresses only to weddings? I disagree. Recently, partly because I could not find a dress that I liked, I wore this outfit to one of my friend’s weddings. You have seen me wear this skirt with a white blouse while in Spain which is great for going out for cocktails or dinner. I have also attached a few pictures where I paired it with a sweater for an outfit that you can wear in the fall to an office maybe. Switch up the sweater for a blouse and a blazer and you have yet another outfit. For the wedding, I combined it with my corset and necklace which you have already seen me wear here, with a skirt from Zara, chandelier earrings and voilĂ . Now granted, if the wedding you are going to is very formal, this may not work as well, but most of my friend’s weddings are not too formal. You may want to switch the mini skirt for a nice pencil skirt which you most likely already own, pair it with dressier stiletto sandal and it can go to a more formal wedding too. Just think about it, there are many options available for you in your closet already. You just have to let your inspiration run wild and try things out. You don't really need another dress in your closet that will hang there and collect dust, and remind u every time u see it what a waste of money it was, do you? Ciao!

Joining The 30s Club! Yikes!

Shoes Gucci, Skirt Mendocino, corset Ebay, necklace DIY, clutch gift old, belt Asos, (sold out, similar here), ring and earrings street buy Madrid Well today is my big birthday. I am turning 30! All I have to say is OMG! I know that sounds more like a teenager talking, but I am somewhat speechless. Partially because I don’t feel mature enough for it. Maybe I have this vision that in your thirties you are more serious when it comes to everything including what you wear. Or maybe I am having midlife crisis at 30. Is that possible? I’m kidding of course. It does feel a bit weird but I feel great. Everyone tells me that your thirties are your best years. I guess we will wait and see. I am posting tonight one last outfit from Spain. I obviously can’t shoot the pictures tonight of my birthday outfit, put it on my computer, edit and post and all of this while making it to dinner on time J. So I will post today’s outfit tomorrow and I am leaving you with this, what I think, stunning outfit. As…

How to Stay Warm in the Tricky Spring Weather

Jeans Zara, boots Forever 21, blouse Forever 21, jacket Mango (old), scarf Aldo, sunnies Ray-Ban, bag Louis Vuitton (with my own chain strap), gloves H&M
As the sun is out again and the weather doesn't require thick layers of clothing, I get to get out more out and about the city. The spring is the time when I walk the most, sometimes for hours. It also helps with the few winter pounds heheh. Though long walks require comfort, I still like to wear a cute little outfit. You may think how are heeled boots comfortable, but to be honest, I get more easily tired walking in flats then in heels. Granted, for these long walks I opt for a more chunky heel and a shoe with a strong foot support, rather then a thin stiletto heel. 
I recently purchased these Forever 21 booties and decided they were going to be the piece around which the outfit is built. With me, the outfit builders are usually the shoes haha. And though it was a nice spring day, layers were still a must. I layered a soft t…

Instagram Roundup

I haven't posted much lately and now I'm on vacation for another week or so, so no new posts are expected before I return. I wanted however to share with you a few of my favourite pictures from my Instagram account. Few more pictures have been posted since but you will have to go to my Instagram account to see more.

The Best Blazer. Period.

Blazer Premonition (FigJam.To), dress White by Vera Wang, sandals (Winners), belt Express
Today's outfit was not intended to be shared on the blog, but rather just on my Instagram. It was shot (you can see the quality of the pictures) with a phone camera in a prompt 2 minute photo shoot, as I was running late for a weeding. But I was soooooo excited by this blazer that I had to share it here as well. I had too many pictures that I liked and I could not show them all on Instagram, otherwise people would un-follow me for spamming them hahahaha. 
I got this blazer delivered this same day and it fit perfectly with the dress I had chosen to wear to the event. It is from a website called FigJam.To which specializes in Australian designers. I took one look at this gorgeous piece and I HAD to have it. How amazing is the detailing on the back? Perfect to show off your dress...or your derrier when you pair it with some tight jeans....It's beautifully tailored. A perfect boyfriend blaze…
