A cool and casual outfit for the active mom

Black Round Neck Floral Embroidered Sweatshirt

As you might have noticed, my style has become a lot more casual since I became a mom, for obvious reasons. I'm that kind of mom that decided not to get a stroller and instead opted for baby wearing. Now imagine carrying your baby while wearing a fitted pencil skirt, silk blouse and stilettos. It's not very practical, is it? But that doesn't mean that casual needs to be boring, no way. You can still be stylish and fashionable wearing a sweatshirt, pants and sneakers. Here's what I opted for. An embroidered round neck sweatshirt is the way to step up your sweatshirt game. I went for a floral motif and if you look at it from a distance it almost looks like one of those dia de los muertos floral skulls. The shirt is on sale now and you can get it here. Take a break from wearing jeans and go for a pair of red pants, they are super chic and incredibly versatile. Sorry mine got so wrinkled sitting in the car. Comfy sneakers are a  must and I am in love with my light purple Adidas Gazelle. I finished my outfit off with a pair of heart shaped sunglasses because they are whimsical and they sure make peek-a-boo time a lot more fun.

This is what it sounds like when doves cry

What is wrong with you, 2016? You're taking away all these amazing people from our lives! I did not have the chance to see David Bowie in concert but I was lucky enough to catch Prince at Sziget Festival a few years ago. And it was glorious! It's a sad sad day, but at least the memory remains. I was going to talk about something totally different today on the blog, but obviously I got distracted. I'll get back to it some other time.

Street style ballerina

leather top tutu midi skirt

Remember when you were a little girl and wanted to become a ballerina? Well, I didn't! The urge to dress up in a tutu skirt came later, much later on in life. I  mostly blame Carrie Bradshaw for introducing us to tulle skirts as street wear and compelling us to dress up like fashionable dolls. There's no denying they are super feminine and fun and there are so many ways to wear them. The idea of pairing a tulle skirt with a leather top seemed daring enough, and I love the contrast between the two fabrics. I love a feminine outfit with an edge. There are a lot fewer occasions for me to dress up these days, and my style has definitely taken a turn for the casual since I became a mom, but I love dressing up for photo shoots for the blog. So what do you say, are you ready to put on a tutu skirt and have some fun? There's nothing better to fight the Monday blues than a fun outfit!

Off the shoulder tops are the IT item this season. I prepared a selection of my favorite finds, with prices for every budget. There are so many styles and prints to chose from, and no matter which one you pick,  you will surely not go unnoticed. I've always thought bare shoulders to be quite sexy, and this spring it's time to show off those shoulders. Not to mention they are the perfect addition to your wardrobe for the festival season. Happy shopping!

Dressing up the boxer braids

striped shirt full midi skirt boxer braids

Boxer braids are gaining quite a momentum nowadays. Of course, it's nothing new under the sun, these braids have been sported by women all over the world for a very long time. But I have to admit, this is the IT hairstyle of the moment. Braiding my hair always reminds me of my childhood and I guess I've always associated braids with girls of a younger age. There's something so fresh and fun about them. I kind of miss my long hair but now that it has reached a medium length I can play again with some new hairstyles. I have to thank my sister for doing my hair for this shoot, she's a hair brading master. While boxer braids are most commonly associated with the world of sports, these days they can be easily worn with elegant or edgy outfits. I went for a more dressed up version, with a simple black and white striped top, a full midi skirt and black bow pumps.
