Multitasking Skirt

The wedding season is in a full swing. I personally have 4 weddings this summer (excluding the ones I had in the spring and will have in late fall). Dressing for weddings can get to be pretty expensive. It’s a girl thing to have to buy a new dress for every wedding. And with new dress, we usually want to buy shoes that go exactly with that dress. Then hair, makeup, and the bill can add up pretty quickly. In the last few years I have had about 5 weddings per year on average, so imagine how many dresses and shoes that is. Well, I personally will commit offense of wearing one dress to more than just one wedding. I am not a fan of dresses that are too dressy, especially satin ones, so my dresses give me the flexibility to wear them to other events throughout the year. Usually the dress I buy is not too formal. To make is more formal all I do is change up the shoes, accessories, hair and makeup. I love versatility when it comes to any piece of clothing, especially a dress.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
But who says we have to wear dresses only to weddings? I disagree. Recently, partly because I could not find a dress that I liked, I wore this outfit to one of my friend’s weddings. You have seen me wear this skirt with a white blouse while in Spain which is great for going out for cocktails or dinner. I have also attached a few pictures where I paired it with a sweater for an outfit that you can wear in the fall to an office maybe. Switch up the sweater for a blouse and a blazer and you have yet another outfit. For the wedding, I combined it with my corset and necklace which you have already seen me wear here, with a skirt from Zara, chandelier earrings and voilĂ . Now granted, if the wedding you are going to is very formal, this may not work as well, but most of my friend’s weddings are not too formal. You may want to switch the mini skirt for a nice pencil skirt which you most likely already own, pair it with dressier stiletto sandal and it can go to a more formal wedding too. Just think about it, there are many options available for you in your closet already. You just have to let your inspiration run wild and try things out. You don't really need another dress in your closet that will hang there and collect dust, and remind u every time u see it what a waste of money it was, do you? Ciao!

Joining The 30s Club! Yikes!

Shoes Gucci, Skirt Mendocino, corset Ebay, necklace DIY, clutch gift old, belt Asos, (sold out, similar here), ring and earrings street buy Madrid Well today is my big birthday. I am turning 30! All I have to say is OMG! I know that sounds more like a teenager talking, but I am somewhat speechless. Partially because I don’t feel mature enough for it. Maybe I have this vision that in your thirties you are more serious when it comes to everything including what you wear. Or maybe I am having midlife crisis at 30. Is that possible? I’m kidding of course. It does feel a bit weird but I feel great. Everyone tells me that your thirties are your best years. I guess we will wait and see. I am posting tonight one last outfit from Spain. I obviously can’t shoot the pictures tonight of my birthday outfit, put it on my computer, edit and post and all of this while making it to dinner on time J. So I will post today’s outfit tomorrow and I am leaving you with this, what I think, stunning outfit. As…

Sightseeing Montreal In Hot Pink Sneakers & Ripped Jeans

Jeans & jacket Zara, sneakers Nike, shirt H&M, bag Steve Madden, sunglasses unknown, belt Danier (men's section), chain ring Forever 21, midi ring H&M, forefinger gold rings gifts Day one in Montreal was the cocktail party and then walking the streets of old Montreal at night and testing out different patios and bars. Day two in Montreal, was again walking the beautiful streets of old Montreal and testing out patios, but now in daylight, hehehe. Oh and lets not forget, blog picture taking. I forget how beautiful this city is and am reminded every time I come back. Then, I wonder why I don't come back more often. It is gorgeous, vibrant and people are extremely warm. It has such a European flare, which I often miss, and this is a quick way for me to get that fix once in a while, without having to fly over an ocean. These pictures were snapped around St Denis street as well as around Catherdral Notre-Dame Basilica of MontrĂ©al. I was comfortable in my new Nikes for the…

Celebrating 30s is Not That Hard

As promised, I’m following up with one more outfit post this week. One thing I notice is that one of the  posts on my blog keeps getting the most view, even 3 years after it was posted. That was a post on turning 30, called Joining the 30s club. It seems to be a topic of interest for many women, most likely those about to turn 30. At the time it seemed like a bit deal for me too, but today, as I’ve turned 33, I’m very much comfortable with my age. 30s used to be a scary thought for me but now, I embrace them and feel more comfortable & happy in my skin then I ever have.
Today I’m sharing an outfit I wore for my birthday dinner (which was almost a month ago). I got this dress in a vintage store for a whapping $10. It was brand new. Oh how I love these fun cheap finds! The print reminded me of a cherry print form Dolce&Gabbana from a few seasons ago, but I also loved the style of the dress. It seems much shorter in these pictures then it actually is. For some reason my legs lo…

Over-sized Sleeves, Cozy Zara Sweater & Leather Outfit

Boots Aldo, skirt New Yorker, sweater Zara, bag Chanel, earrings vintage
Gotta love Zara! Gotta love this sweater! It was love at first sight (I know, I know I say that a lot). If you love it too, you should be able to still find it in the store. I love the oversized sleeves in particular. Anyone else crazy about this trend?  My brain is a little fried this week do I won't talk much. Too much to do, too little time before my trip to Boston this weekend. So I am leaving you with this quick post and hope you enjoy the pictures and the outfit.
Ciao!
