Spring/Summer 2014 Trends

I have been planning this post for a while now but never really came around to writing and posting it. Maybe because I have been busy, or maybe because the time never seemed right. Today’s post is about the spring trends but due to the horrible winter like weather, the timing just did not seem appropriate. But, I figure it should probably be done now before the summer arrives, right?
As with any season, there are a lot of different trends presented on worldwide runways but of course they don’t all suit all of us. Today, I picked a few that I personally will take part in and enjoy. Some of them are just a continuation of last years and some are brand new.

Same as last year I am a huge fan of cropped tops. But I prefer to mix them with high wasted pants, pencil or lady like skirts. I am not too fond of cropped tops on lower rise jeans. Not to say I have never done it, but high waist bottoms are my preference to pair with the cropped tops. Another big trend is the orange colour. As they say, orange is the new black. I am a huge fan of this colour and will look forward to finding some great pieces in this bright hue. Forever 21 carries a lot of cropped tops but if you are looking for more structured pieces, head to Zara.
Lady like skirts will continue from fall/winter into spring/summer months. Whether it is tea length skirts or pleated ones, feminine touches are a must this season. Many stores already carry them but I picked today these gorgeous tea length skirts from Topshop and H&M, and this pleated beauty from Asos. Check out on this blog post how I wear mine for spring.
 When it comes to colours, mint green and pastels are all the rage. Continuing with the theme of femininity, lace is also a must this spring. I love this mint green skirt from Shopiin (I already bought it for me and can’t wait to wear it). You can also wear pastels in your shoes such as these gorgeous pastel blue Zara heels.
Do you like to go all out but hate wearing jewellery? How about rocking skirts, dresses or anything else already embellished? Just check out this gorgeous Burberry Prorsum ensemble on the picture below. Not in your budget? Try out this beautiful white embellished dress from Sheinside, which I also wore on my blog. They now also cary it in a sleeveless style. Jewellery already comes attached, so slip on the dress, put on your best heels and head out the door for a fun night out.
Graphics, whether it be geometric prints, checks or abstract will be oh so present this season. I love them because they add an interest to even the simplest of outfits. Check out this cute Sheinside graffiti dress.
What else is coming this spring? Metallics, bohemian rhapsody, sporty, fringe, sheer, global, floral and suits, wide leg trousers are all available to you to choose from. So are jeans, mainly boyfriend jeans and overalls. And you already know I am a huge fan of them. Just check out these two looks I wore on the blog before here and here.

What trends are you most excited about? 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…

How to Stay Warm in the Tricky Spring Weather

Jeans Zara, boots Forever 21, blouse Forever 21, jacket Mango (old), scarf Aldo, sunnies Ray-Ban, bag Louis Vuitton (with my own chain strap), gloves H&M
As the sun is out again and the weather doesn't require thick layers of clothing, I get to get out more out and about the city. The spring is the time when I walk the most, sometimes for hours. It also helps with the few winter pounds heheh. Though long walks require comfort, I still like to wear a cute little outfit. You may think how are heeled boots comfortable, but to be honest, I get more easily tired walking in flats then in heels. Granted, for these long walks I opt for a more chunky heel and a shoe with a strong foot support, rather then a thin stiletto heel. 
I recently purchased these Forever 21 booties and decided they were going to be the piece around which the outfit is built. With me, the outfit builders are usually the shoes haha. And though it was a nice spring day, layers were still a must. I layered a soft t…

Instagram Roundup

I haven't posted much lately and now I'm on vacation for another week or so, so no new posts are expected before I return. I wanted however to share with you a few of my favourite pictures from my Instagram account. Few more pictures have been posted since but you will have to go to my Instagram account to see more. 

The Best Blazer. Period.

Blazer Premonition (FigJam.To), dress White by Vera Wang, sandals (Winners), belt Express
Today's outfit was not intended to be shared on the blog, but rather just on my Instagram. It was shot (you can see the quality of the pictures) with a phone camera in a prompt 2 minute photo shoot, as I was running late for a weeding. But I was soooooo excited by this blazer that I had to share it here as well. I had too many pictures that I liked and I could not show them all on Instagram, otherwise people would un-follow me for spamming them hahahaha. 
I got this blazer delivered this same day and it fit perfectly with the dress I had chosen to wear to the event. It is from a website called FigJam.To which specializes in Australian designers. I took one look at this gorgeous piece and I HAD to have it. How amazing is the detailing on the back? Perfect to show off your dress...or your derrier when you pair it with some tight jeans....It's beautifully tailored. A perfect boyfriend blaze…
