How to Style a Shirt Dress for Fall

 Dress Banana Republic, boots Just Fab, sunglasses Ray-Ban, scarf H&M, bag unknown (Marshalls), rings H&M, bracelet (gift)

Fall is in full gear. Trees are changing their colours and I am starting to dread waking up in the morning. Mornings are cold and dark. Luckily weather has been beautiful this fall. I'm off to Chicago this coming weekend and luckily the weather will serve us right.

You know how much I love fall clothing and layering, right? I said that one too many times :). I absolutely love fall colours: mustard yellow, burgundy, all of them. Though today's outfit is not really in fall colour, it's still fall appropriate. One staple that everyone should have in their closet is a shirt dress. You can wear it casually on the weekend or dress it up for the office. This soft blue dress is from Banana Republic. I scored it while on sale (wohoo!). It is so versatile that you can wear it many different ways. For today's post, I cinched it at the waist with a scarf. Scarfs have been everywhere last few months and they certainly provide a great alternative to a belt. As they usually come in different patters, they provide an element of surprise to your outfit and make it that much interesting. I opted for wedge fringe ankle boots, as I was going out for a dog walk and morning coffee run. Fringe boots give it a more relaxed feel. If it's chilly out, why not throw on an oversized cardigan or a leather jacket? Don't like leather jackets? Denim will do just as well.

I have also worn this dress un-cinched. It looks somewhat as if you are wearing a nightgown, but pairing it with dressier stilettos and a structured bag, it keeps the look still very put together and office appropriate.

This dress in particular is quite loose so I also got to wear it as a light summer jacket/trench coat. I wore it with skinny jeans and a T-shirt, but it will work just as well with a light dress. And how about using it as a cover up when you go away south for a vacation?  Just think of how many ways you can style it and how much wear you can get out of it!

Who's off to buy a shirt dress this weekend?

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…
