The power suit shortcut

Skinny Buddha Zara black shorts LA t-shirt

So happy it's almost warm enough for bare legs...almost! I am wearing skin toned tights though, so I am faking it. But the good news is it's warm enough for shorts. Now who doesn't love a pair of shorts? Sure, most of the times I go for denim, they are my favorite during the summer, but when I saw this pair I knew I had to have them. They're a bit more sophisticated and I knew I wanted to incorporate them into an edgy look. That's why I decided to pair them with a blazer I would normally wear to the office or to an important meeting. I just rolled up the sleeves and I instantly gave it a more relaxed vibe. I debated long and hard what to wear underneath the blazer. My first thought was a white button down shirt, but that would have taken the outfit into a whole different direction: business on the top, party on the bottom. No, that wasn't a good idea. A light bulb went on in my head and I remembered this t-shirt I bought for my husband a while ago and decided to borrow it. Since I started on this route I decided to borrow his Ray Ban sunglasses as well. Guess who bought these for him? Me, of course. You see I am very practical that way, because I love to borrow things from his wardrobe. I love this outfit, I think it turned out super awesome. I'm calling it my power suit shortcut. Plus I was having a good hair day, which is quite rare nowadays.

My sister went to a Morrissey concert and all I got was this t-shirt

light grey jeans morrissey t-shirt

You know those silly t-shirts that read my boyfriend/sister/parents did this or that and all I got was this lousy t-shirt? Well, this is sort of like this, except this is not a lousy t-shirt at all. My sister went to a Morrissey concert in Ljubljana, Slovenia last year and I couldn't go because I was pregnant in my last trimester and decided not to travel that far. I wanted to go really bad because I am a huge Morrissey fan and he's never been on tour so close to home, but I guess I'll have to catch him next time. Anyway, she brought me this awesome t-shirt and I love it. Paired it with a pair of light grey jeans I've been wanting to get for ages and finally found on discount online. I've got the cardigan a couple years ago and it's on heavy rotation these days, it goes with everything. Do you guys have a favorite band/artist t-shirt? Any other Moz fans out there?

Nothing better than my cocoon sweater

rose quartz cocoon sweater

Clothes are meant to gently hug your body and this is exactly what this rose quartz cocoon sweater does. It's the coziest, snuggliest thing ever and I love the way it wraps around me. I wanted to put together a very casual and relaxed look but with a bit of edge as well. I like how the fluffy sweater goes with the faux leather pants and oversized t-shirt. You can't really be a bad ass wearing pink, but hey, I tried. Got these Adidas Gazelle sneakers last year and I've been wearing them quite a lot, except for when it's raining. That's the only downside to wearing suede. What else, what else? Ah yes, this purple leather clutch is perfect for when I want to go out with friends and don't have to carry a ton of stuff with me. I just throw in my wallet, keys and phone and I am ready to go. I'm quite happy with this outfit, it's both fashionable and functional.

Sweater weather

Long Sleeve Turtleneck Pullover Sweater

This is definitely my favorite time of the year. The weather is just perfect, not too cold and not too hot, the trees are in bloom and the birds are chirping every morning outside my window. It's warm enough to leave the coat at home and just wear a cozy sweater. My only regret is I didn't order this ribbed turtleneck sweater earlier this year. Soon enough it will be too warm so I am making the most of wearing it now. I was telling you in a recent post (here) how much I am enjoying wearing turtlenecks again and how happy I am they are making a comeback. This one transitions perfectly into spring and it literally goes with everything. I love the ivory color and I've tried it also with a pair of light grey jeans and suede ankle boots for a casual everyday outfit and it looks great. Today I am showing you how it can be dressed up. First of all I decided to wear high heels but wasn't sure with what kind of boots and what color. Only when I picked up the striped skirt I figured it would be best to keep the outfit in black and white and went for these platform ankle boots. The sunglasses always add a bit more mystery to any outfit.

It's funny how things can look so different through the lens of a camera. Looking at this building you wouldn't necessarily think of shooting it or posing in front of it. At least I didn't. But if you distance yourself a little bit from it and increase the aperture of your lens, things start looking a lot better. Actually the reason why I wanted to shoot in this location was the magnolia tree they have in the front yard. It reminds me of the tree in my primary school's backyard and how beautiful it looked in spring. I can't wait to come back once this one is in full bloom, I am sure it will look spectacular. I promise I will take a photo so you can see it better.

The 'earth' without 'art' is just 'eh'

Skinny Buddha graphic print casual dress

I'm always on the lookout for a great print, and while florals are the go to print for spring, I decided to avert my attention in a whole new direction. After all, there is nothing groundbreaking about wearing florals in spring. I wanted something whimsical and abstract, cartoon-y and dreamy at the same time and I never though I would actually find a print to embody all this. Well I did, and I was over the moon excited. It's got a little bit of everything: watercolor portraits, foxes, deer and rabbits, hot air balloons, flowers and hearts. I wish I could take this print and frame it on the wall as art. I've been doing a lot of research lately on illustrations for a decor project I am working on (more on that soon) and I wanted a big art piece I could hang on the living room wall. So you can imagine my surprise when I found the print of my dreams on a dress! If you guys find a similar illustration out there on the web, please let me know.

When putting together this outfit I wanted the dress to stand out, so I paired it with earth tone colored accessories - matching knit cardigan and boots. I braided my hair in a side braid and I really love how the blonde is slowly fading out and it mostly shows my natural hair color. I am thinking of getting rid of the blonde all together, but will have to consult with my hair stylist before making any decision, because I want to avoid coloring my hair for a while. Wearing my cat eye sunglasses, because let's face it, the only thing this print was missing was a cat. Meow!

Celebrating International Women's Day

Nude Back Zipper High Stiletto Heel Lace Up Pumps
lace up pumps: here

Today we celebrate International Women's Day! Now more than ever, since I became a mom, I  am grateful for all the great women in my life - my daughter first and foremost, my mother, my sister who is the most amazing aunt in the world, and of course all my fabulous girlfriends. I have a very small but close knit circle of female friends and I wouldn't trade them for the world. We shouldn't wait for this specific day in the year to remind the women in our lives how wonderful and appreciated they are, but  life gets in the way and we sometimes forget to thank them for always being there for us.

Now, what do women do best? Shopping of course! And what are women most crazy about? Well shoes of course. I decided I will celebrate today by treating myself to a new pair of shoes, so I put together a selection of my favorite finds, all under $50! Which ones are your favorite?

Moaning Lisa smile

Skinny Buddha all grey outfit Bonprix boots

It's been raining all day today and I've spent most of it in bed. Procrastinating is definitely my favorite Sunday activity. As evening approached, I finally summoned some energy and decided to prepare a new post. Wearing all grey everything, in tone with the scenery outside. Luckily the weather was super nice a couple of days ago when I shot these photos. I've been dreaming to shoot in this location for a while now, and I am super excited I finally managed to get in. I remember the first time I visited the French Cultural Center I was in college and I was here for a concert. The building fascinated me and the garden seemed filled with secret stories. I planned my outfit to match the location, put on my new incredibly comfy boots, and daydreamed about waking up each morning in this place, having coffee on the terrace and admiring the view.

Days like these

SkinnyBuddha brown suede ankle boots grey polka dot sweater

Spring is finally here, I can feel it in the air! I'm not quite ready yet to bring out the pastels and florals from storage, instead I am shopping for cool sweaters and suede boots for this intermediate period. Check out the links below to find out where I got these beauties from. Wearing a very relaxed and casual outfit while out for coffee and running errands. These days I am leaning towards androgynous, functional looks composed of basics in neutral colors, that exude a carefree attitude. I usually like my outfits to stand out and make a statement, but even I need a break from that every once in a while. I guess I can call this my recipe for days off. What do you guys like to wear on days like these?
