Boys & Pocket Squares, Girls & Pocket Bow

Hello lovelies,

How did April manage to sneak up on us?!? But I am super excited for warmer weather and longer days full of sunshine. We have had so much rain this year and are beating all LA precipitation records while staying in low temperature ranges, so I am ready for the sun to make its more permanent appearance.

Speaking of spring vibes this Bow Detail Tweed Tunic Dress from SHEIN is totally speaking my language and helping me welcome the spring in a classic yet fresh style. And yes here is where this post’s title comes into play–boys spruce up their suit pockets by adding a pocket square, but guess what? Us girls can have our own twist on that brilliant idea and use a set of bows to dress up our pockets!! Doesn’t this dress do so in the most subtle, yet noticeable way? By adding the black bow to the top of the pockets and black hemming the sleeves and neckline as well, this simple white dress turns into a feminine yet edgy piece which speaks volumes with simple black and white statements.

Just a few more details on this tunic dress that I love: it is made out of a tweed material which is 80% cotton–the perfect fabric for spring–breathable, yet warm. It is versatile due to its tunic type which allows you to wear it with some leggings on a cooler day. Another aspect that makes this tweed dress very wearable is the simplicity of colors which allow you to pretty much play with any color and pattern accessories. It is elegant and perfect for a day at the office or a date night with your sweetheart. Did I mention that it is only $24?! However if you use code Q2ootdinstyle for 15% off your SHEIN purchase and decrease that price.

Love,

Cozy & Cute

Hello lovelies,

I like being cozy any season, but there is something extra cozy that I look for in winter clothing–I desire that softness which keeps me warm, comfy and if it looks cute then, hey, I have a winner!! That is exactly how I feel about SHEIN’s High Neck Drawstring Waist Heather Knit Dress. The middy length and turtle neck provide essential coverage to keep you away from the frost biting ability of this season’s weather. The draw string waist adds definition to the smallest area of your body and the ruffled bottom adds femininity and character to this cozy piece. The burgundy color pulls you away from being stuck in the winter blacks (so guilty of that!!) and the pretty silhouette makes this dress perfect for a day in the office or a Sunday brunch with friends. Once I put the High Neck Drawstring Waist Heather Knit Dress on I didn’t really want to take it off–the cotton-polyester fabric is so soft that it feels like you are wearing your favorite joggers and top.

Have you peaked at what is new on the SHEIN website?! Has anything caught your eye? If so, dont forget to use coupon code Q1ootdinstyle15 for extra 15% off any purchase, valid now trough March 31th.

Leopard Print -From the Catwalks to the Globes

Hello lovelies,

Hope your weekend was restful and fun at the same time. I had the opportunity to spend it with a dear friend of mine and that was a treat! ๐Ÿ™‚

One trend that I noticed being back on the table this season is none other but the famous leopard print–it was all over the Spring/Summer 2019 catwalks from bold Saint Laurent bodysuits to silky, midi skirts by Burberry. Most recently we saw Anne Hathaway arrive to the 2019 Golden Globes looking fierce in an all-over leopard print ball gown by Elie Saab. Needless to say I got inspired to try the trend–to me leopard print is a combination of otherwise neutral colors that pack a beautifully mean punch of style into an outfit.

Sooooo, how did I get my leopard on? Well, you know I love dresses, so I opted out for the Tie Neck Leopard Print Ruffle Hem Dress. It combines two types of print – one on a smaller scale that trims the dress on the bottom, at the waist line, the neckline and the cuffs of the sleeves and a larger print which comprises the rest of the dress. I like the mixture of the two as they are placed strategically to add to the shape of this leopard print dress.

A Winter Must-Have

Hello everyone,

Are you ready for Christmas? Is it just around the corner and in an blink of an eye 2018 would come to a close. It is amazing how fast time flies the older one gets–let’s appreciate the last few days of the year and make sweet memories! ๐Ÿ™‚

Speaking of Christmas, this year I want to wear something different–something festive, yet not screaming HOLIDAYS, but making me feel like I am in the magic of a winter wonderland. When I laid my eyes on the SHEIN Whipstitch Trim Tweed Dress, I knew that was it!! The dress is not red or green, it is not plaid and does not have excessive sparkle, but is elegant and whimsical in a very classy manner. Tweed material is very appropriate for the season and the off white color makes me feel like a snow queen. I like the subtle trim details as well – introducing gold and black, which allow you to play with accessories in both of those colors. The sheath silhouette adds to the elegance of the dress and of course you know I am a fan of natural fabrics, so that fact that this dress is 80% cotton also had a pull on my heart. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you like the Whipstitch Trim Tweed Dress you can purchase it at 20% off by using the cupon code ootdi20, which you can actually use on any purchase from us.shein.com.

One thing to keep in mind is that if you are tall (I am 5’9), you may choose to size up. I ordered a size Small and feel like the mama in me would have liked just a bit more length and width, hehe. ๐Ÿ˜‰

What are you wearing for Christmas?

Love Always,

Street Smart

Hello lovelies,

How was your Thanksgiving? I hope filled with family fun, delicious treats, sweet memories and maybe some crazy-good shopping! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I tried to stay away from the stores, but managed to find this super cool and smart blazer from SHEIN and a pair of distressed denim from LOFT that put together make me feel SUPER “street smart”, hehe!

Why do I love this blazer:

  1. I am a natural fabric girl and this piece is 100% cotton, so it scored huge points in my books! It is soft and breathes with you.
  2. The cut, color, pattern, and length make it perfect for work and play. The navy and plaid pattern scream classy and smartly-dressed, but not stiff or stuffy manner. You can wear the SHEIN Double Breasted Notched Neck Plaid Blazer with a white or navy dress, or dark denim pants and it will carry you straight to the office. Combine it with a pair of distressed jeans and hang out looking cool at the neighborhood coffee shop or bar.
  3. It is such a steal at $25 and if you use code “ootdi20” you will receive additional 20% off your purchase from the US SHEIN website.

Drop me a line and let me know what you think about this outfit or tell me what is your favorite buy from this weekend, even if it was a present for someone else you are super excited to give. I got something for my dad and I am excited to have his Christmas present all set.

Love Always,

Marieta

Salsa Queen

Hello lovelies,

Do you like Salsa dancing? I am a huge FAN and cannot wait to learn more steps and perhaps one day spin on the dance floor like those beautiful professionals can (yeah, a girl can dream, right?!?)

Well, when I saw the SHEIN Ruffle Cold Shoulder Layered Hem Dress, SALSA emerged in my head right away… It is sexy, yet not over-the-top, lets me feel like I am on fire in the coolest way possible, and makes me want to dance!! So let’s break this down:

“Sexy, yet not over-the-top”: The dress hugs your curves and has a cold-shoulder element, but is knee length allowing you to feel sexy without exposing too much leg or cleavage.

“On fire in the coolest way possible”: The burgundy red color and the sheath nature of the dress make you feel like an explosive powerhouse, yet one composed, beautiful and in control. ๐Ÿ™‚

“Makes me want to dance”: The ruffles around the hem and the shoulder detail add so much movement to the dress–it is like it was created to lead you to the dance floor!

Cream into Fall

Hello Lovelies,

It may not be super apparent from the outfits I wear, but I am a huge sucker for light colors–whites, creams, light beiges, light blushes–and the combinations of those all. I also do not like to conform to the rule of “NO WHITE after Labor Day!” To me texture and the combination of materials make a given outfit more fitting for a season than it’s color. Of course that is not true of every color, but I cannot even think of one I would not wear during a particular season–well, maybe watermelon in January would be a miss. Hehe! ๐Ÿ˜›

Speaking of creams, I have found yet another perfect transition-into-fall dress. Meet the SHEIN Button Detail Raw Edge Tweed Dress. She has summer charm as she is pinafore, but that also makes her the perfect piece to layer–just add a slim shirt underneath, a set of leggings, your favorite over-the-knee boots and you are all set for a cooler October/November day. Her cream color and golden button accents make her shine on a sunny warm day and would sure be a ray of light on a moodier fall one. Being made from 100% cotton makes the Button Detail Raw Edge Tweed Dress comfortable for any weather conditions. Tweed is also very fall so that makes the dress bridge the two seasons perfectly! The raw hem and splits also add visual interest welcomed any time of the year. ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you like wearing dresses in all seasons? If so here are some options for you to explore! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Love always,

Marieta

Brick – The Perfect Transition Color

Hello Lovelies,

I hope everyone’s LDW was one filled with fun and a lot of summer inspired activities. I am not ready to let go of my favorite season, so I keep on ordering summer dresses and calling those my transition pieces, hehe! Self-deception works in some cases…

Meet my latest obsession the SHEIN Belted Button Up Ruffle Cuff Dress. She first grabbed my attention with her subtle brick color–reminded me of a fall leaf and hence inspired me to see it as a dress I could actually wear into September, October, November. Of course it was more than just the color that caught my eye. The dress spoke to me in a vintage inspired language which extenuates your waist with the belt, guides your eye from the v-neck down the buttons and to the A-line bottom of the dress. The ruffled sleeves add femininity to the vintage character of this cute dress.

On a warm day you can pair the Belted Button Up Ruffle Cuff Dress with some slides and a light-colored bag to make those buttons pop even further. To transition this dress to fall just throw a leather jacket on, some boots or booties, a darker bag and voila–you will be warm and chic! Incorporating a head band to the look would add to that vintage feel–try it is is a lot of fun! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have you discovered your favorite transition piece already? If not or would like to add more, the Belted Button Up Ruffle Cuff Dress is waiting for you! ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy rest of your week, loves!

Love Always,

Marieta

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.

Dress | Bag | Sandals | Sunglasses | Watch | Necklace | Lip Gloss

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

Love Always,

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.
