Suit up!

black blazer dress diy choker necklace

This week I am debuting a brand new collaboration with Kapa Shopping Center and I really hope you guys love this look because I am over the moon excited about it. I've been dreaming of a blazer dress ever since the Balmain  x H&M collection, and now I found one at a very reasonable price. For a day look it's better to opt for a simpler silhouette, while an embellished blazer dress will work better for evening wear. When it comes to blazers, the cut needs to be flawless and the fit needs to be perfect in order to obtain that polished look. This is such a statement piece, bound to make you feel empowered the moment you put it on. To add a bit more edge to the outfit I decided to create a choker necklace. This is such an easy diy project, you just need a strip of material and a pendant of your choice. I used some left over ribbon from wrapping presents and an old Danish crown coin that has a hole in the middle. And voila, my outfit is now complete. So ladies, suit up and get ready to take the world by storm!

The return of the turtleneck sweater

Skinny Buddha 70s black turtleneck sweater

The turtleneck sweater is making a comeback and I'm loving it! In fact, as I am sure you have already noticed, the '70s are making a major comeback right now, and the turtleneck is such a '70s staple. I am not ready to embrace the flare pants just yet, so I think I'll just stick to that. I can't even remember when was the last time I wore a turtleneck sweater, it must have been sometime in college. My favorite one was a hand me down multicolored striped one from my mother. I wonder what happened to it. Anyway, I recently thrifted 2 such sweaters and they are super comfy and very practical especially when I am carrying my baby girl out for a walk, because I don't need to wear a scarf. This time I decided to go for a very feminine look, and I paired the black sweater with a wool skirt and cocoon coat. I kept the makeup very simple, in neutral tones and a beige lip color. Scroll all the way down to shop my look!

Night falls and towns become circuit boards

Skinny Buddha Grey Round Neck Split Back Sheath Combo Dress

Things are not always what they seem, in life, and especially on the internet! When you do a lot of online shopping you sometimes find this to be painfully true. It doesn't necessarily mean you are disappointed, but the item you just ordered isn't exactly as pictured or as you imagined it to be. The only challenge I had with this dress for example, was the fact that it's super sheer and you could not tell that from the photos, which were taken in a studio. In broad daylight this becomes very apparent, and unfortunately I chose the wrong slip to wear underneath it. But still, I am happy with my choice, and will wear it better next time. Hopefully by then I will lose that bit of tummy fat that still clings to me (I am secretly hoping it's in fact just excess skin from my pregnancy and hopefully it will shrink back to normal soon). I really loved the design of the dress, especially the split back. It can be easily dressed up for the office, like I did here, or dressed down with flat ankle boots or sneakers and a leather jacket for running errands. I always look for versatility in each new piece I acquire. We're not movie stars who can afford to wear everything only once, right?

How to look and feel great after giving birth

Skinny Buddha Jewel Toned shapewear blush

Pregnancy takes your body through a journey it has never been before on, and what a wild journey it is. Hormones raging, belly growing, feet swelling, back aching and this to only name a few of the things you might be faced with. I was lucky enough to go through a very nice and easy pregnancy without morning sickness or nausea, no major pains and only a mild sleep discomfort towards the end. I did my best to stay in shape, I paid extra attention to what I ate, still went regularly to my yoga classes, went swimming and walked for at least one hour every day. 

So of course getting back into shape after giving birth was one of my top priorities. Not the top one, mind you - the top one was getting some sleep. Didn't manage to accomplish that in the first few weeks, but as things started to settle down and my baby and I found our rhythm, I was ready to take some action. I have to admit, breastfeeding has played a major role in dropping some of those extra kilos I was left with after giving birth. Also, because I was breastfeeding I had to pay even more attention to what I ate but this didn't mean I went on a very strict diet. Then I decided it was time to get back to my yoga routine and add some extra crunches in the mix. Well, that proved easier said than done. Days went by and I couldn't find the time for all the activities I wanted to do. It seemed as though I was spending my days breastfeeding and changing diapers with not much else in between. 

That's when I found the perfect way to cheat. Shape wear is the greatest invention ever! There is nothing more important than feeling comfortable with your body after such a major life event, and shape wear can definitely accomplish that for you. I found the perfect slip dress at Jewel Toned, and the best part is I can wear it on its own or layered underneath a dress or any outfit for that matter. Their products are meant to be seen, right on the underwear as outerwear trend, they come in bold colors and they have the ability to form with your body as it changes. I definitely feel more comfortable now that I am wearing this and my self esteem just got a major boost.
