This summer has been keeping us all on our toes with these heat waves taking over a good part of the world. We have been lucky to have a break from our intense #europeanadventure (follow me on Instagram stories where I share what we've been busying ourselves with during this break) and so, were able to avoid the heat for the most part. But on the days when "hiding" from the heat is not an option, I, like everyone else think of what to wear so I look good but also, feel comfortable.
This is where flowy dresses come in.
Every woman should have a cami shirt/blouse in her wardrobe. There is something very delicate and versatile about a beautiful cami that instantly creates an effortless look.
Either to wear it under a suit, a blazer or cardigan, under a sheer top or even underneath a sweater for added layers/warmth in cooler weather. A beautiful cami can also be the perfect pairing on its own for skirts or pants and even jeans.
This spring in San Diego has been like no other so far. Everywhere you turn, there's flowers and green. It's a sure feast for the eyes as we're finally enjoying the results of the stormy winter days we've had, so this is not the time to spend it inside. We've been visiting our favorite beaches or places by the beach one last time before we leave California. I mentioned here that we'd be leaving in a few months and the time is coming to a close. But I'll share about that another day. Today I want to share another easy spring look - spring is here or just around the corner and you need to be ready.
I have three obsessions when it comes to my style: stripes, blue and white and eyelets. I don't know where these obsessions came from, but I find these details flattering and I'm instantly drawn to them. You bet that when I find all the three in one item, I will add it to my closet. This was the case with this eyelet top I found a while ago that is perfect for the spring or summer season.
In case I haven't mentioned it before, spring is my favorite season. I love the awakening nature, the sunny, warm days, the blooms and the freshness all around. Spring always makes me think of new beginnings and I always crave changes during this season. The change is coming as I have written before, and I am getting more excited and scared by the day. Yet I am fully embracing this next chapter in our lives, as it's time to leave our comfort zone and truly start living.
How does one dress for constant rainy and chilly weather? You pull out a trench coat of course!
Between us moving into a hotel and the cold, dressing up, or putting effort into my outfits has been a struggle. I have been living in a sweater, jeans, a scarf and booties lately. Of course this is also due to the limited closet space and clothes we have now.
I obviously did not plan my packing too well, since I ended up at the hotel with the clothes I wear for work, sweaters, and a few other random blouses, dresses, jeans and some basics.
The holidays are about traditions. And, like it or not, nothing is more traditional than wearing the classic red on Christmas. While I was planning on steering clear of this color this year, I ended up embracing it fully, as you see, to get in the holiday spirit. It might be looking like this in SoCal but Christmas is finally here!
I'm wishing you a magical day, surrounded by the people you love the most. May you receive all the presents and love you've been dreaming about.
From my family to yours, have a very Merry Christmas!
I have to admit that the cold weather is kicking my butt when it comes to style. You know I prefer to wear dresses; the majority of my dresses are summer-ready or, those cold-weather appropriate being too short for my liking to wear bare-legged. For that reason, lately I've been reaching out for jeans over and over, and I have to admit I have been feeling a bit uninspired. It's the cold weather, it's the end of another year, that, while it flew by, also seemed too long for us, and it's the impatience for 2019 - I can't be the only one having these feelings.
It's not that I'm not excited for the holidays or I'm not looking forward to them; it's just that my mind has been all over the place lately.
I have been immersed in books - fiction AND personal growth - and I seriously can't stop #bookworm.
Now that Thanksgiving is behind us, all eyes and thoughts are on Christmas. While I won't be decorating this year like I normally do (I won't be putting up a Christmas tree, read here why), I'm still getting in the holiday spirit through little changes and decorations throughout our home, and, my outfit choices, of course.
It's undeniable that red and glittery things scream Christmas, and I have been incorporating more red in my looks and/or something "sparkly" here and there. The holidays are the perfect excuse to dress up and add a little bit of extra to the typical outfit, without feeling "out-of-place". However, when thinking Christmas outfits, ugly sweaters and pjs are not what I have in mind...
Fall is finally making its way to San Diego and last weekend I had to pull my sweaters and jeans out (never mind that this weekend, summer seems to have come back, and yes, I'm loving it).
You already know that I don't like the cold weather - reason why we live in San Diego - but even around here, it gets cold. Sweaters are the best way to beat the cold, when you can't stay at home, under the blanket and with a cup of tea in your hand. It might surprise you, but I love cozy sweaters, even if I don't have that many - we live in SoCal after all.
Shop my look: sweater here, jeans (similar here, here and here), exact loafers here , similar here and here, scarf similar here and here.
