Burgundy and Cordouroy

Happy New Year, lovelies! โค

I hope Santa brought you the “magical pony” you desired and that 2019 would be filled with health, happiness, smiles, love, success, adventures, and contentment.

Aside from my magical pony Santa dropped off this awesome SHEIN Double Breasted Overlap Corduroy Dress for me! It is burgundy and pairs off perfectly with a white undershirt–think Santa was trying to drop me a hint to become one of his helpers? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Just so it does not seem like I am late to the party, I decided to pair this chic corduroy dress with a black undershirt, black leggings, favorite booties and a black newspaper-boy hat. Doesn’t this ensemble spell simple, playful, stylish with a bit of French?!

The dress’ double breasted design, burgundy color and golden buttons give it a semi-formal flavor, while the corduroy fabric and front pockets bring out the casual, playful character of this piece. I find the dress “easy going”, yet with enough flavor to spice up an otherwise very basic black look.

Guess what? Santa dropped off something for you too: Q1ootdinstyle15 – use this code for 15% off your purchase from us.shein.com.

Twirl With Me

Hello lovelies,

Summer makes me so happy, I really don’t want it to ever end. I know, I know… I live in LA and there is nothing too severe about the other three seasons here. I am just one of those people that loves going to the beach, loves warm and light evenings, eats watermelon and peaches till her tummy feels like exploding, and is willing to deal with the insane mid-day heat in order to reap the rest of the benefits of summer. And “YES!” dresses are one of those benefits.IMG_20180808_165018_274.jpgIMG_20180808_133523_317.jpg

Today’s look is inspired by comfort–a level of easy wear that is pretty at the same time–a win-win in my books. The main act is the Blue Off Neckline Long Sleeve 3/4 Length A Line Women’s Dress by us.vip.com. It is so chic, girly and pleasant to wear! I also adore all the details this dress wows us with:

  1. Off the shoulder with a twist–not in your most traditional and expected way, the OTS detail here looks like a shirt collar and adds so much visual interest to this piece. There also are straps which help hold the dress up and camouflage your bra straps, however if you don’t like the strap look you can hide those just as successfully.IMG_20180808_133340_612.jpgIMG_20180808_164729_531.jpgIMG_20180808_133653_929.jpg
  2. Top button front–a major trend this summer, which also draws your eye to the dress without screaming loudly at all.
  3. Pockets–ahhh, any dress with pockets makes me smile. I also love the pocket flap and button detail present here–somehow it adds an unexpected semi-formal twist to this chic dress.IMG_20180808_133211_753.jpg
  4. Draw string waist line–makes it easy to define the thinnest part of your body and looks good even after a Sunday brunch! ๐Ÿ˜‰
  5. A-line silhouette and soft material–the combination of those two produces a swing dress that makes me want to twirl and twirl like a little girl in the middle of a candy store. The fabric is so soft–real pleasure to wear.IMG_20180808_133739_351.jpg

Beach Blush

Hello lovelies and happy new week!

Have you though about replacing your beach cover up with an actual dress? I tend to do that almost 90% of the time as I like having an outfit that can carry me trough the day, from a morning/afternoon playing in the sand and the waves to an early dinner or drinks at my favorite food and cocktail spot.

Meet my latest partner in beach-going to restaurant-hopping crime – the SHEIN Lace Trim Eyelet Embroidered Dress. She is cute, fun and easy-going, breads in sunshine and exhales vacation vibes! She is made with 100% cotton material and her light and breezy fit and flare silhouette is sure to keep you cool while looking hot! ๐Ÿ˜‰ The body of this beautiful A-line dress is made by an eyelet fabric, trimmed by gorgeous lace around the hem, sleeves and the V-neckline. This combo creates a floral-like, soft, monochrome effect which is eye-catching and ropes you in with gentleness and femininity. This dress comes in two colors–the blush I am wearing and a white–which is equally as pleasing and visually appealing.

Would you wear the Lace Trim Eyelet Embroidered Dress to the beach? Would love to hear what you think.

I don’t always wear red during summer, however I fell in love with the romantic nature of this Ruffle Strap & Hem Button Up Dress and decided to give red a chance this season. Doesn’t it combine beautifully with my straw bag and hat to create a fun, beach- or farmer’s-market-inspired look? This dress is very detail-rich and yet feels simple and elegant. The ruffle straps and hem bring femininity and charm, the button front brings it right on trend, the delicate print allows for numerous combinations with white, black or red accessories, the draw string at the waist hugs your figure at the narrowest portion of your body, the midi-length gives it a sophisticated flair–all those come together to create a pretty and classy piece one can wear to brunch, the beach and even to work. I also like the overall vintage charm this dress posses–it makes me feel like a lady! ๐Ÿ™‚

Fun Under The Sun

Hello lovelies,

Happy, happy summer to you! ๐ŸŒž Summer is my favorite season–it brings this vacation vibe that stays around for a few months. The weather is warm and the beach is calling your name. It is time to wear fun dresses and enjoy warm nights talking to friends, sipping on drinks garnished with umbrellas, laughing the night away.

Last week I introduced you to my favorite button front summer dress, this week it is time to show you a shorter option with some ruffle flair, theย SHEINย Keyhole Back Ruffle Hem Shirred Panel Dress. This little number makes me want to dance. The body of the dress is made out of a stretchy, band-like material that hugs your curves and adds romanticism with ruffles by the sleeves and at the bottom of the dress. The red and white pattern add to the fun character of the dress and so does the tear drop open back detail. The dress is made out of cotton–one of my favorite natural fabrics for the summer. I ordered a size medium and the fit is pretty great aside from the length, but I am also 5’9”, so it would be a lot longer on someone who is not quite as tall.

The Button Front Cami Dress – A Summer Must-Have

Hello lovelies,

How is your summer going thus far? I have been away from the blog a bit as I took a trip to Austria last week. Vienna is such a great city and it sure reminded me of all the gorgeousness, history and beautiful architecture a European city possesses. The weather was warm and pleasant, which made me think of all the pretty and trendy dresses this summer’s fashion is gifting us with.

SHEIN Button Front Cami Dress (1)SHEIN Button Front Cami Dress (8)

If you were a kid or a teen in the 90’s, you’ll remember that button front skirts and dresses were big then. Guess what!? They are back for some more action and admiration, and I am digging the trend for the second time in my life. Shein totally nailed it with this button front cami dress. It comes in three different colors, is made out of linen (perfect fabric for summer), the shift cami cut feels breezy and light, and the tea length allows you to pair this gorgeous dress with either flats, sneakers (for a casual day look), kitten heels or pumps (for afternoon/evening sophistication). The details are very charming as well–who doesn’t love pockets on their dress, I also like the high waist and heavily pleated skirt attached to it (allows for a delicious brunch on a Sunday ;)).

Summer Whites

Hello lovelies,

I have missed you all. Please, excuse my absence, life has been pretty fast-pace lately. Exciting new changes that I would perhaps share next time as this post is all about WHITE!

As summer is surely approaching we are all pulling out our favorite white articles of clothing, be it jeans, tops, skirts, shots, dresses–it is the season to be in white! If you love what you have, but are looking to expand your while repertoire then I have the dress for you. Just could not pass up this beautiful, cotton, fit and flare beauty from SHEIN. It is feminine and flirty, soft and airy, with an eye-catching cut out fabric, accentuating the waist and pretty stand collar. I am wearing a size small and am happy with the fit.

This dress pairs beautifully with any color accessories–blue (for a Santorini feel), blush, cream, red, even black (for a Parisian look), but there is something about white on white that spells “vacation, beach, warm nights, fresh breeze” and embodies all things SUMMER. Given that I crave that feeling, I paired theย Ruffle Cuff Guipure Lace Overlay Dress, with white pumps and a white clutch.

How to wear “MOM” jeans

Hello lovelies,

How was your weekend? Did you greet St. Patrick in green? I feel like I am excused from this tradition as I happen to have entered the world on the same day, so birthday attire is allowed even if not in green! Hehe!

Mom Jeans, Ripped Jeans, Bodysuit, ZAFUL, Nine WestMom Jeans, Ripped Jeans, Bodysuit, ZAFUL, Red Shoes, Studded Bag

So this year, I had a full day of celebrations with different set of friends and family at different locations and with different flavors–brunch with girlfriends in mid-town, a bit of shopping and semi-fancy Italian restaurant dinner with my family in Beverly Hill, closing down the evening with cocktails in Silverlake… I knew I was going to be running around town and wanted to be comfy and chic, so what did I reach out to?! Unexpectedly, the first pair of ripped mom jeans I have ever owned! Somehow to me high-waited jeans scream: “Pair me up with a bodysuit and you will have perfection!” So I listened and picket to partner my comfy pair of jeans with a black velvet bodysuit with rivet embellishment. It added a stylish twist to the look with its sophisticated velvet fabric, slash collar line, and small cutouts at the waist.

To finish the look off I added my favorite black belt, red pumps, embroidered leather moto jacket and a baker boy hat. The look make be feel comfortable and confident–what else can a birthday girl ask for? At least when it comes to her outfit? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Tips: If you are pondering upon grabbing a pair of these jeans, you should consider sizing up. However, if your legs are on the stick-thin side you will be “A OK” going with your regular size as you don’t want the waist to be too loose. Same goes with the bodysuit–I recommend sizing up. I generally wear a small in tops. I ordered the medium from this bodysuit and I should have totally gone for the large.

How to Style a Key-Piece Three Different Ways

Hello lovelies,

This week I decided to show you how to style a key-piece three different ways. Guess who the main act is? This wild child leopard and camo top I discovered on Gozon.com – a women’s contemporary boutique, headquartered right here in Los Angeles!

What is it that I love about this top?

  • The pint – it is such a unique combination that I had never seen before. The colors go together perfectly and create an eye-catching piece perfect for fall.
  • The sequence pocket – it adds a bit of sparkle and femininity.
  • The design – an asymmetrical cut that falls beautifully and could work perfectly over your pants or tucked into a skirt.
  • The fabric – it is polyester, but also quite soft.
  • It is true to size – which takes the worry away from ordering from a women’s online store!
  • The coupon code “MARIETA15” would give you 15% off your purchase from Gozon Clothing!

I have not been a student for quite some time now, but there still is a rebellious nature in this risk-averse mama! ๐Ÿ˜‰ And somehow this look takes me back to the 90’s when I was in school indeed. These trendy SheIn distressed denim overalls are the perfect partner for my key-piece. Both are funky, unique (hello, have you seen camo, leopard print and sequins all together before?) and cool with tons of playful touches. These denim overalls have a few spots with very moderate rips–which add character, but are not large enough to make you feel the cool fall air get to you. The fabric is ultra soft and very pleasant against your skin. The ankle-length makes them the perfect article to display your booties! Oh, and did I mention the numerous pockets–super handy when you need to carry a few things to the playground, but you want your hands to be free to play with your little one once you are there. These SheIn overalls are also very reasonably priced at $21. I generally wear size 2 and these are size M.

Look 2 – Boho GI Jane – of course I had to try this Gozon.com top in a feminine light as well. I love boho-inspired outfits and could not wait to to put this top together with a suede skirt, suede booties and top is with a boater hat and clubsound sunnies. Isn’t this look right on trend for the Fall to Winter season?

Look 3 – Weekend Warrior/Mama on the GO – if you are a mama you know there are tons of errands to run and fun to be had on the weekends. This look is for you! It is super comfy and trendy all at the same time. Here I have chosen to partner the camo-leopart print top with soft black ripped denim and a pair of flats. Add in your favorite bag and you are ready to conquer the weekend, and do so in style!

Blush into Fall

Hello lovelies,

I have been thinking about Fall fashion and the fact that I do not want to give up pretty colors because summer is over. One of those colors dear to my heart it blush–it is so soft and feminine and could work perfectly with a light fall color palette of creams and beiges, as well as soft grays!

VIP.com Blush Midi Dress, H&M Velvet Flats, Clubrounds, Ralph Lauren Handbag, Starfish Project JewelsVIP.com Blush Midi Dress, Clubrounds, Ralph Lauren Handbag, Starfish Project JewelsVIP.com Blush Midi Dress, Pearl Detail, Starfish Project Necklace

Today I am showing you a look that combined all blush with some cream and denim. This dress from VIP.com is the main act and outfit inspiration. I could not help, but fall in love with the soft lines it forms and that beautiful pear detail along the sleeves and on the belt. Don’t you think it is darling? Once I received the dress I could also appreciate how soft and comfy it is (I am not a huge fan of pretty clothing that is torturous to wear!).

I also loved how the elegance of the point toe added to the sophistication of the dress. Since I want to wear this dress now and for the next few months, and believe it or not, it gets cold in the morning and evening even in LA, I added a denim blazer. I chose a blazer vs a regular jean jacket as I wanted to stay in the slightly more elegant realm. To finish the outfit off I added some pretty jewels, a cream bag and some sunnies.
