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!

Have You Visited Positano & Amalfi Coast Yet?

Pants Zara, jacket Zara, sneakers Forever21, bag unknown (Winners), dress unknown (similar), ankle boots PrettyLittleThings

There are still quite a few more outfits and cities I’ll be featuring on the blog from my last year’s trip to Italy, however today I’m sharing this post from the last location we visited: beautiful Positano. As we visited Italy in the fall, outfits left to share are more fall appropriate, so I will share them come September. I’ll be dealing with two little babies then so God knows how much time I will have to shoot new outfits. As I’m laying on my couch bored out of my mind counting down the days to my delivery next week (whooohoooo!!!) I’m experiencing such FOMO. Partially because I won’t be going on vacation this summer (though becoming a mom to two little girls is quite awesome!!) and partially because I’m reminiscing of my travels last year. Positano seems to still be one of the most photographed summer destinations so I’m sharing a few pictures from my trav…

Bouclé Red Teddy Coat

OTK boots (similar), sweatshirt/dress H&M, coat Koton, handbag Zara (same bag Ebay & similar)
Hello darlings, here I am again after a 3 month absence. If you follow me on my Instagram account, you know I have a good excuse. I’m 4 months pregnant and just got over my first trimester. Those of you who have been pregnant know how tiring the first trimester can be. On top of that, I’m expecting twins, two girls!!!! So I guess I can say I was double tired hehehehe. I still owe you more outfits & posts from Italy and Serbia from last fall, but before I go back to that, let me share a few outfits which are more appropriate for the current winter/spring weather. I shot both this outfit and the one I will share with you in the next post during my first month of pregnancy before the exhaustion kicked in, but I never got to post them on the blog. Today is all about this teddy red coat. The brand is Koton and it was only $80. It is really soft and cozy and I’ve gotten a lot of complim…

Two Outfits in Milan

1st outfit: dress H&M, boots Ebay, jacket Zara 2nd outfit: jeans Topshop, boots Primadonna Collection, shirt Bershka, coat unknown
If you have been following me for some time, you know that last year I took 6 months off and one of the things I did during that time is take a road trip through Italy. First stop was Venice and you can read more about it in this post as well as here. Third stop on the trip (yes I know I skipped the second, but we’ll return to it another day) was Milan. Since I was a little girl, Milan was a place I really wanted to visit. I had such high expectations; partially due to it being one of fashion capitals, partially due to the beautiful Duomo of Milano, and because it was on my bucket list since I was a kid. I don’t quite know why, it just always was. Well, needless to say Duomo di Milano is absolutely stunning and a must see when visiting this big city. Walking the roof of the cathedral will leave you breathless. Just imagining how many man hours were spen…

Hello lovelies. I hope everyone had a beautiful weekend. Hopefully, those of you who are moms got to be pampered and spoiled by your kids and partners. I hope you also showed your love to your moms and thanked them for everything they have done for you. We should be doing it every day, but it’s really nice to have a day dedicated to these amazing women. I know how much my mother means to me and she certainly deserves every day to be dedicated just to her. I’m sure all of you feel the same way about your mothers too. Even the sun came out to shine and make Mother’s day even more special. I made sure to go bare legged to welcome the warmth and the sun. Today’s outfit is a cute spring look, easy to pull off. Black and white stripes always make a statement and a little pop of colour just makes the outfit complete. I spent the day out mostly and o…
