Back in Pastel

Hat: H&M; Blazer: Zara similar ; Top: Mango:Jeans: H&M similar; Heels: BCBG Max Azria similar; Bag: Carbotti bag

Sometimes I don't have the whole outfit in my mind. It's more of a process where I pick an item to build the outfit around it. In today's blogpost I knew I wanted to wear something pastel and this shirt that was sitting in my closet for years. The neutral leather patch details in that shirt inspired me to add that bohemian hat. I paired it with this distressed jeans for a soft yet bold look.

I would also like to point out that you don't have to purchase new clothes all the time to be trendy. None of these items I 'm wearing today have been bought recently. That blazer is probably 4 years in my blazer collection and that shirt I got 6 years ago. It's more of recreating your outfit with items you already have in your wardrobe.

Nautical stripe ensemble

Jacket: Mango; Skirt; Asos; Top; H&M, Heels: ShoeDazzle, clutch: Italian handmade leather bag by; Belt: LV; Necklace; The Jewelry Lady

Stripes AGAIN, comon' Ani, seriously??? [OMG, YEAH] Don't tell me I did not warn you last week. The addiction to my beloved stripes continues, winter, spring you call it........ I am on the striped waggon all year LONG, as long as I don't die of an overdose and my readers dont get tired, it's all good, right? And don't tell me, you don't like that pattern, as well? Especially now that spring is around the corner, you can mix some maritime/nautical vibes into it.

The red accents make that ensemble really pop and I couldn't be more in love with my "zebra on heels", a friend of mine used that term the other day, when I wore zebras around my chest here. Since then I visualize a reall zebra on these heels and  just imagine it runs around like that and make the wilderness its catwalk.....Thanks Tom for that metaphor, I'm lovin' it :-D

Another thing what I love about this outfit is that I got the jacket, the bag and belt when I was on vacation in Italy and the Netherlands, so they have a pretty sentimental value to me and bring memories. Do you associate items that you purchased abroad with your lovely experiences you made?

Have a great start in the week and thanks for your visit, always makes my fashion heart jump :-)

NOTE: After the winterbreak my friend Elena and I are back for our Trendsetter's link up. We decided on the theme "Sheer". So get your spring sheer items out and link back with us on March 31st.

Laced in mint

Blazer: H&M
Dress: Orsay
Bag: Boutique
Heels: Via Uno
Belt: H&M
Flower: H&M
Ring: Pilgrim
Necklace: Gift

I am so obsessed with those ocean colours recently. Usually I grab for all different minty shades in the spring and throughout the summer, just so flattering on each hair and skin tone and simply refreshing. As much as I am in love with mint I am with this elegant crochet dress.Can you imagine that I got this beauty for only 20€. Was so excited when I saw the sale sign on it and if the would have had it in different colours, I would def have purchased it. It has puffy shoulders which you can't see on the pics, unfortunately forgot to take my blazer off and has a pencil skirt fit. I dressed it in a more elegant way for work but it can be dressed down by simply putting a white cropped shirt over, using the dress as a skirt and finish it with a denim jacket. I will show you different ways on how to style it in the future if you are interested? I gave this ensemble an unexpected twist by adding a leopard belt. Isn't it fun how an accessoire can change the appearance of an outfit? Thank you to my love for this precious pearl necklace he got me for christmas.

Office Chic in Ocean Colours + 1 Anniversary

Royal blue and emerald paired together remind me of the beautiful Caribbean Ocean, where I have been quite often while Eric attended medical school in Saint Maarten and Antigua. That colour combo is super refreshing and flatters every skin tone and hair colour. To give this ensemble a vivid touch, I played with different textures. The blouse is a really smooth flowy material-nearly feels like silk and compensates the heavy brocade and lurex metallic pants perfectly. I kept the accessories on the natural side not to overdo it and styled my hair to a more messy side bun to not look too polished.

On another side note: I am celebrating my first Blog Anniversary- YEAH. It was a wonderful year of extending my personal style through the wonderful inspirations and support of you guys. Thank you so much for all the love throughout the year. When I started my blog, I didn't expect such a supportive community and I am so glad to met so wonderful ladies within the blogosphere that I can call my blogger friends. Cheers to a wonderful blogging year ahead!

PS: I am linking up with my beautiful friend Elena today, she masters to rock floral and stripes so perfectly. Check it out!

Nautical in the mix

 Dress: Asos
Cardigan: Mango
Blue Blazer: Zara
Heels: Asos
Clutch white, black, red: H&M, Zara, Ebay
             Necklace: HRH Collection

One of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe is this nautical dress because of the gold buttons- I LOVE GOLD BUTTONS as they dress up any outfit :-), and the stripes. It can be worn in so many ways.  Depending on the choice of shoes, clutches, jackets and accessoires individual looks can be created.
Paired with heels and a blazer its upgraded to a business look or to go out on a date. A more casual look can be achieved by wearing flats and a cardigan.
Which look do you like better?
