Dress to Impress

When you are in search of that perfect summer dress…

 

As our beautiful summer slowly fades away, let`s embrace bright colours for a little while. It is such a great feeling to wear beautiful dresses on a warm summer day. The wind kindly touches your skin and moves the soft fabric of your dress. The colour brightens up your day and brings out smiles in others. Get in touch with your soft and feminine side and embrace it by wearing a dress you like. There are so many choices you can choose from.  You can combine your dress with heels, flats, sandals or even sneakers if the dress has a more casual look. However, no matter what kind of dress you choose, the most important is to remember this:

“What is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.”Yves Saint Laurent

Here are 4 summer dresses I chose. Which one do you like the most? Let me know in the comment section. 🙂 Enjoy!

Stylish by boldly following the trends?

You joyfully buy the most trendy jacket and a pair of ripped jeans. Next week you check out the same store to see that your trendy jacket has been replaced by another jacket and those ripped jeans you bought, well, now you should rather wear black leather pants instead… You are confused, a bit upset and get a huge desire to buy new clothes. Does this sound familiar to you?

Fashion industry is a business that has to constantly change and make you buy new clothes in order to survive.

You should also be unpredictable with your style in order to be unforgettable. However, it doesn’t mean you have to buy new trendy outfits every week. You can still wear the same jacket with another pair of pants and blouse that fits perfectly and make you feel beautiful. And you know what? Your confidence and attitude is already irresistible!

You should choose a couple of season trends you really like and add that to your wardrobe. The rest should be your personal style and preference. It is also completely fine if you only like everything that is considered trendy for the moment.

So are you considered stylish by boldly following the trends? Partly yes and no. One thing is for sure, that you will definitely see someone dressed exactly like you on the streets and it shouldn’t be surprising because it is completely normal. And secondly, be prepared to spend quite some amount of money in order to follow all the trends that are being put out for us every week.

My personal consideration scale whether I should buy an item or not usually looks like this:

  1. Whether I really like the item or not.
  2. Whether it looks good on me and fits me well.
  3. Can I afford it right now?
  4. If previous three questions get a positive answer, I will definitely buy it!
  5. (Wow, this item is actually trendy right now.)

From this scale I see that trendiness is not something I look at first and it actually comes in the last place. More important is the personal preference, fitting and tidiness of the clothes. What are your thoughts on this topic? I would love to read it!

Have a stylish weekend! ❤

Spontaneous Evening by the Sea + OOTD`s

When it comes to hair, don’t be afraid of the wind. It creates a messy and romantic hairstyle!:)

We are getting closer and closer to the summer time, it is only 6 days left! How time is flying so fast, you blink and – here we are! Many of us wait for the summer with excitement – vacation, travel, sunshine, ice cream, nature, smiles and joy. But while everyone is still in town, and weather is blinking at you with a smile, use this time to sponteneously spend some evenings outside!

Spontaneous meets are so exciting. When you simply grab some coffee and walk slowly, while enjoying the weather and being among the people mass. That is exactly what we did yesterday! So enjoy it simply and casually!

Me with Indre Antana.

When it comes to clothes, spring is quite unpredictable. Especially in a city which is situated by the sea. It can be windy and cloudy in the morning, so hot in the daytime, and much colder in the evening. Therefore, a jacket is actually a must. Then you feel secure at any time that you will not get cold. There are so many beautiful jackets out there for you to choose, so it should not be a problem. Remember to grab a jacket before you go out, and you will be ready for a spontaneous evening by the sea!

Choose to wear Confidence

confidence-is-beauty

You probably recognise yourself trying on new trends, outfits, hairstyles or makeup you have seen on other people that looked amazing, only to feel the urge to change to something else and cover yourself with a blanket. You walk on the streets and constantly touch your skirt, or fix the scarf and you definitely don’t feel like dancing. When people take a look at you, you immediately think there is something wrong and you nervously look down. What is missing here? Why do other people look so much better in your eyes?

The answer is CONFIDENCE.

No matter what you wear, confidence is the key and how you feel inside. Since the taste is very personal, confidence is universal – it is beautiful and we recognise it regardless of what type of style you like and preference you have. Feel the most beautiful in the room and shine bright from inside and out. Beauty is what you feel about yourself. So choose to wear confidence today and everyday!

Have a shiny weekend full of confidence!

Minimalism

fb7015c257bf41a2f623d5931e8c2b03

 

Nowadays, with so many choices and possibilities, we get often confused and lost. It gets hard to decide and choose, also when it comes to fashion. Then two beautiful words pop into our heads – Simplicity and Minimalism. These words bring calmness and create space in our minds and closets, where we can breathe and slow our pace.

Minimalism in fashion is all about clean, classical cuts and models, with basic, neutral colours. The key is to obviously keep it simple without pressuring the eyes with bright colours, sparkle and extravagant elements. The models should fit you well and quality of the fabric should be important as minimalism is also about minimising the size of your closet. This means that you should invest in a couple of pieces that can be mixed and matched for different occasions.

For example a classic blazer can be matched with a pair of jeans, regular t-shirt and sneakers for the day time. If you like it more classy and want to create an office look, wear it with a pair of classical pants, shirt and flat shoes. And guess what, You can wear that same blazer over a dress or skirt for the night out, combined with a pair of high heels. Voíla, You used the same blazer in four different outfits! I don’t even doubt that you will mix and match even more outfits using the same blazer.

You can also do the same with a dress. Find a dress that is made of a good material and fits you perfectly. Dress it down for the day time, with flat shoes, a scarf, blazer or cardigan, and dress it up for the evening out, with high heels, perhaps a belt and cute little purse.

 

 

Have a wonderful and simply beautiful weekend! ♡

5 Spring Season Trends

lushfabglam motivation quotes 5

Spring, oh dear Spring, are you here? Because your clothes look fierce and fabulous. However, the weather conditions won’t let me enjoy them quite yet, since the coat is hiding it all. Then it is about time to take a closer look into what is considered trendy for the season and pick pieces or patterns you like the most. Maybe You will hit some shops after this? Or check the online stores? Either way, continue reading this and enjoy the Art of Fashion!

What do trends dictate for this wonderfully blossoming season? Perhaps weather is not so ideal here in western Europe, but it will only get better. It is no surprise that pastel colours are making a huge hit this season. And ladies, you will find all shades of Pink to create a fabulous look!

However, Khaki colour is making its statement and is a main colour to look after this season. This colour looks great paired with different colour items, but especially the white ones. Do not hesitate and get yourself a Khaki item, since this colour is the new black!

 

 

Athletic Wear Elements   

A sexy twist of athletic wear in all shapes, sizes and colours are shaking up the runways and different stores. Get inspired from these looks to create your own outfit!

 

Flower Power

It is no surprise that flower pattern made this list. Flowers are one of the things that associate with spring and its awakening nature. Flowers can be found in all shapes and sizes, which makes it easier to find unique pattern to each of you. Minimalistic big flowers, or full ornaments of the small ones – You can find it all!

 

Stripes all the way

Inspired by sporty wear, stripes are continuing to be a huge hit for this season and it looks like it will stay this way for a while. This pattern is very universal and anyone can wear it. If you are not a big fan of extravagant stripes, smaller and more simple stripes will look just as flattering.

 

Sparkle For Me

Let your fantasy get loose on this trend! Shine bright like a diamond, from inside and out, and sparkle through the day and night like a star!

 

 

Which of these spring trends do You like the most? Have a wonderful weekend!

Spring Vibes in Light Colours

Nights are getting shorter and Days are getting longer. Cannot wait to enjoy shy sunlight and to take long walks. Also how amazing is it to leave your coat at home and fully show your outfit? It gets immediately more tempting to dress up more and experiment with your wardrobe. And what fits better with that warm late spring and early summer breeze than light materials and pastel colours to create a fresh look?

 

 

Style is something personal and individual and should be matched with the persons personality and lifestyle. Todays style is quite classy, girly and fresh.

The theme is long and short white bottoms. First is cropped high waist, wide pants and second is high waist shorts with accessories on them. Classy cuts matched with cute and playful details, such as bright shoes and more loose tops in light pink pastel colour. I really love this colour for the spring and summer season. Simplicity mixed with creative little details give delightful completeness to the look!
