Casual Day Out // Falling for Fall

img-set-6.jpg

 

The story of how I became to love the turtle neck is simple – I don’t like being cold. And so far, I couldn’t find something better to wear on windy autumn days, underneath a large scarf. Plus, a pair of extra long sleeves only add to this comfy loose feeling. Can’t get enough of it – yum.

What else on my list of favorites these days? Well, the feel of royal blue on my velvet city boots. With mid-length thick heels, they are perfect for wondering around the city in style and comfort. Touche!

And last but not least, this mini embellished snakeskin handbag, small enough to be handled and carried around with ease, but big enough to hold the essential together. Plus, it feels like adding some jewelry to the outfit.

I guess that’s my idea of keeping it cool while being wrapped up for chill autumn days. What gets you in the mood for fall styling?

Wearing Renaissance // Fall RTW 2016

img-set-2.jpg

Having been lately to all sorts of events hosted in classical buildings with detailed architecture, seeing a few movies on theme and, last but not least, watching the fall collections, really got me in the mood for some serious classical interventions.

So I put together a couple of outfits around some of my favorite pieces of the season – like the Renaissance long ruffled dress, the off the schoulder ruffle white top and the embroidered cape. The military jacket is also back on spot, but this is a different topic I’ll approach in a new article soon.

What I love? Black embroidered velvet mixed with shiny boots, ruffles and tight jeans, pairing the military jacket with the pleated dress. Geometric graphics also play along well.

How do you feel about the new inspiration this season?

What if…. days and nights would need no sleep?
You would gracefully swing from light to dark
And back to light again
Ever exploring
Both sides of the story.

Like a Virgin

img-set-5 copy.jpg

They said there was a time when being a Virgin was an act of personal power and strength, a trait that brought woman closer to God.
But what if Virgin… had nothing to do with one’s ability to restrain from desire, but was actually about one’s will and the power to manifest it?
What if Virgin was actually about sovereignty and not about chastity?
Of course, I am not saying all this non sense is true.
But could be.
Think about it…what if?

Beach, please!

When you’re going to the beach this summer, don’t forget your humor home – it is said to give better UV protection, if handled properly.

Keep it short and resume to a few selected items that got you in the mood – like some colorful funny bag, big enough to hold everything together and a pair of slippers that will make you smile each time you see them.

I would go for a geometric printed mini dress and a giant hat that will cover as much skin as possible from direct sunlight. A splash of color on your hat will literally brighten your day so make it sunny.. all the way 🙂

Explore & Enjoy!

When it comes to weekend escapes, make it all about fun, comfort and … layering.

Large knitted cardigans are my favorites and they get along  well in a lot of unexpected combinations.

The Gucci Flora Shorts, for example, are as cool and fresh as can be, like a spring weekend trip. They can look really relaxed, paired with the comfy texture of a mesh top. Add a bit of play with a lace bralette and a deep-cut T, or just explore the comfort of an oversized blouse, with light cromatics.

The Chloe small Drew Bag stands for a chic statement and a very practical object – with it’s reduced size and long shoulder strap, you’ll enjoy a lot of freedom when moving around!

Add some suede boots in the mix and you just got ready for a new adventure.
