How to Wear Your Two-Piece

Hello lovelies,

Christmas is literally round the corner and I seem to be super busy this week. The weekend flew by so fast that I could not even get my photo shooting done… Have you been running abound like a buzzzy bee?

This week I have partnered with Shein to bring you this super versatile knit two-piece. There are so may details of both the top and the bottom that I truly enjoy and guess what this set looks great together as well as in a combo with other pieces you already have in your wardrobe.

The top – it is knit and yet peplum, which gives one such a pretty line and waist definition. There is a little split at the bottom front which adds a unique feminine touch. The double V neckline is not super deep, so cold air is not going to rush in and make you feel the frost of winter. I have already worn this top as a stand alone sweater, with a pair of black jeans, a nice blush scarf and pointy toe boots!

The skirt – It is just the right midi length and also has a split, but in the back, so it makes the skirt easy to walk in, yet appropriate length for the office. I also am a fan of the fact that it is a pencil skirt as that is the silhouette I tend to gravitate to. You can combine this skirt with a knit black turtleneck sweater or a purple tie neck silk shirt and it would fit beautifully with either!

Overall perks – the grey color is neutral and pretty to combine with red, black, blue, white, purple, you name it! The material is super soft and comfy to wear, while being thick enough to keep you warm. The co-ord will give you a bang for your buck as you can wear the pieces together or as two separates, giving you endless possibilities for just $33!

Have you purchased a two-piece lately? I now own a few and have enjoyed their sheer versatility. Check out more two-piece ideas here.

Red, White and Blue is For Fall Too!

Hello lovelies,

Hope your week has been good! Did you purchase anything on Cyber Monday? I was very good during Black Friday, but did treat myself to a new camera lens and a few airline tickets on Monday!

Somehow the holidays got me thinking about wearing red, white, and blue and I decided to try to incorporate these color in fall outfit perfect for the office. This look is brought to you via my collaboration with VIPSHOP (clothing) and DealOKart(watch).

It actually all started with the top. The bib detail is so intricate and reminded me of a very delicate cami I had once purchased while on a trip to Australia. I also liked the blue embroidery as it added a fun touch to a classy, work-appropriate shirt. Of course this beauty needed a partner, so I went hunting for a skirt. Being the lace fan that I am, I gravitated to this A-line navy midi skirt pretty much as soon as I saw it! The length, the zig-zag hem, and beautiful detailing of the fabric complement the elegant lines of the shirt to create a chic, sophisticated overall silhouette. Then came the accessories–I pondered upon white shoes and bag or their navy counterparts, but settled on burgundy to add yet another color to the outfit. BTW, you can receive $5 OFF your VIPSHOP orders over $50, with code “Marieta756” at https://us.vip.com/.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I wear watches all the time–ever since I received one in first grade, hehe! I had seen this watch on a friend’s Instagram page and though it has tons of minimalist charm, so when DealOKart reached out to me I was happy to order the white on white version of this timepiece. Doesn’t it combine European simplicity and Asian Modern Art to create a cool design?! It also works in such a fun way–the dot depicts the hour hand and the line is the minute hand. Last, but not least, it would not break the bank–it is only $8.99 at the moment! To receive 15% discount to all your DealOKart purchase please use code “OOTD15“.

Falling for Fall

Hello lovelies,

How has your week been? Temperatures here have hit 100F the past few days, and although Fall is around the corner it sure does not feel that way.

As much as I want to hold onto summer, seasons change… Embracing Fall has to happen and what better way that IN STYLE! 🙂 Isn’t it funny how one wardrobe find can get you excited for what it ahead?! This teal green midi dress by METISU did it for me–it has made me “fall for Fall!!”

This dress immediately grabbed my eye with it’s classy silhouette–simple yet feminine, not lacking details, yet keeping those from stealing all of the attention and rather speaking to the appeal of the dress as a whole. The puff sleeves, bow belt decoration, and front stitching add definition to the waist and bring in a feeling of vintage charm. Here, I have styled this dress for a day at the office, but could see myself adding a boater hat and turning it into my main act for a boho Sunday look!

New Girl

Hi lovelies,

Are you fans of the show “New Girl?” I love the light and easy humor and tend to watch an episode or two after viewing something a bit heavier like “House of Cards” or “Breaking Bag!”

Well, for those of you who do love “New Girl” the photos from this week are taken in front of Nick’s Bar–the Griffin!

The other new girl reference is to this good-looking olive green dress, from PinkBlush, as she is the “new girl” in my wardrobe. As I have said before, I ADORE summer, but this classy beauty is making me look forward to Fall days a cooler temps. It is perfect for the office or a dinner date night. The under-the-knee length is excellent for any occasion, the olive green lace material is textured for added visual appeal and the fitted silhouette hugs your curves to perfection. PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (10)PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (14)PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (5)PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (17)

The dress is double-lined to prevent sheerness and pairs up perfectly with other earthy tones, such as beige, different shades of browns, burgundy, cream. Metallics would also partner up well with the dress as it has a tad bit of a shine in some areas on the lace. This outfit makes me feel elegant and sophisticated in a way any woman in her 30s and 40s could appreciate.

Psssstttt, can I tell you a secret?! This dress is actually from the maternity section, but I just loved it so much, I decided to order it in hopes it would fit my body well enough, given that my belly has no reason to grow right now, hehe! I believe this olive beauty would be the perfect piece of clothing to make a mama-to-be glow and feel confidently radiant!! As humans who can grow other humans we need to remember that we are special and beautiful, so I salute you mamas, mamas-to-be, and ladies who will be mamas when the time comes! 😉  PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (13)PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (3)PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (16)PinkBlush Olive Midi, Lucky brand Bag, Lucky Brand Hat, Ray-Ban Clubrounds, Banana Reppublic Heels (18)
