TIPS ON WEARING ALL BLACK

WEARING: Hellen Tank Top, Sir The Label Skirt, Celine Sunglasses, Adidas, Mackage Bag & Breda Watch.

The colour black is the key of every good wardrobe. It's the one colour you can count on for any outfit and something easy to rely on, when you are busy and "have nothing to wear".

All black outfits, always look fresh; it may be the same outfit that you have worn 3 days in a row but no one questions your decision because it may just be a different black top or denim. There is no doubt that black is my-go-to colour when putting outfits together, it can look casual with basics or be complex and look very stylish.

Yeah I am guilty, all-black-everything is my solution to all outfit issues, my first, second and also my backup plan. Pair it with sneakers, sunnies and a cool bag, you're ready to take on the day. If you want to look sleek switch the sneakers for a more refined pair of shoes, a leather jacket and voila you are ready for a night out.

PS. I am obsessed with my new Celine sunglasses, I totally recommend them!

BLACK WHITE SUMMERTIME

WEARING: Dezzal Top, American Apparel Leather Skirt, Breda watch, Celine Sunglasses, Mackage Bag.

The Off-The-Shoulder trend isn't going anywhere anytime soon. I decided to do a feminine take on it with this top from Dezzal and paired it with a mini leather skirt. This photos were taken before I left for my vacation when I went out for a belated birthday brunch. The top is super comfortable and versatile. Looks good with skinny jeans as well. Are you guys are still loving this trend or over it?
I will have lots of beautiful nature photos when I get back from my holidaze. I hope August is going to be amazing for all of us!

90'S INSPIRED: SLIP DRESSES

WEARING: H&M Slip Dress, Everlane White Tee, Nike Cortez Sneakers, Cluse Watches, Galisfly Bracelet, Vrai & Oro x FIGTNY Rings and Lo & Sons Bag

Simplicity at its best, the slip dress is the perfect item to add to your closet. The style has made a serious comeback since its heyday in the 90's. If there was an official ambassador for this trend, it would be Kate Moss; there are dozen of Moss slip dress moments from the 90's and she looked effortless in them. I am all for the no fuss outfits and the Slip Dress is it, also versatile for layering. You can wear it on its own or add a turtleneck, a tee or a leather jacket depending on the season, for a very cool and easy look! Let me know in the comments how you would style your slip dress!

WEEKEND VIBE: OFF THE SHOULDER KNIT & RIPPED JEANS

WEARING: THPSHOP Charlie Tunic & Rings, Diesel Jeans (DIY ripped), Vans Sneakers, Galisfly Bracelet, Lo & Sons The Pearl Bag.

The Off-The-Shoulder silhouette has been seen on runways, all over the streets and on social media. This style is sexy in that unexpected but not over the top kind of way. It was hard for me to find something that would show off my shoulders and collarbone, without feeling too feminine or bohemian; until I came across this knit from my friend Vanessa at The Haute Pursuit. This tunic was the perfect option for me, it has a great balance between sexy, minimal and a contemporary approach to the style. I paired it with sneakers and strong quality accessories - which to me is about as modern as it gets.

MOROCCO - REVISITED


To travel, to see and experience more of the world are some of my main goals in life. I travel as much as possible, work hard, save and go; it's even better when I get to go somewhere for work. I have many countries, cities and places that I would like to visit one day. Morocco was on my list, and what a place! Beautiful in its many colours, streets are alive with noises, the people and the architecture will leave your senses full and wanting more. I was fortunate enough to visit this country with one of my best friends, and we really took our time exploring the cities, markets, restaurants and street food too - best mint tea ever. Sometimes not all experiences abroad, being a female traveller are pleasant, trust me we had a few of those moments. I have learnt when travelling to just roll with things as they happen, good or bad. Do not hold on to anything that is not going to bring you positivity, to just take in all that is different and beautiful.

WEEKEND VIBE: WIDE LEG PANTS & ADILETTES

WEARING: Cameo Collective Crop Top, Vintage Pants, Hieleven Bag, Cluse Watch, Galisfly Rings, Adilette & Common Muse Earrings.

Weekends are usually when you will see me wearing something other than my weekday uniform (black top or sweater, paired with black skinny jeans, a choice of leather jacket / a bomber or an oversized long coat - depending on the weather) always with sneakers. During the week I don't exactly get an A for effort, all black is the easiest way for making yourself socially acceptable without having to spend too much time getting ready.

I am all about being comfortable and dressing down, but you will never see me out in sweatpants. On the weekends though, when I have extra time to think about what I want to wear, that's when I like to try a few things that I wouldn't wear on a weekday. Here for example I paired a crop top with high waist, wide leg pants and Adilettes, semi tucked hair and minimal accessories for the win. Most people probably wouldn't be able to wear this look at work (not everyone works in fashion), but you can rock it during the weekend.

What is your weekend vibe? Tell me in the comments below! xx
