OOTD: One Spring Day

I am loving the cool spring weather at the moment. The weather is no longer painfully cold, so my bare legs are out for as long as possible. How are you enjoying spring? Has spring sprung where you are at?

 

 

I love wearing dresses in the spring/summer months, I guess that is due to the fact that I have been stuck in heavy coats, jeans and tights all through winter. I find dresses comfortable and easy to style.

Take this black dress I have on for example; all I had to do was to throw on a few accessories and I was good to go. That is the beauty of a little black dress, it never goes out of style, and it is dead easy to dress up.

 

 

This black embroidery smock dress is a new wardrobe addition; I got it some few weeks ago. I love the floral embroidery detail a lot. It is a perfect piece, and it is great for transitioning from winter to spring (just pop on a blazer and a pair of tights if you need one), and from day-to-night (with a change of accessories).

 

 

“I’ve always thought of accessories as the exclamation point of a woman’s outfit.” -Michael Kors.

I saw this quote online some days ago and it hit the nail on the head, with regards to the major role accessories play in an overall look. I think accessories are very important; they determine how good or bad an outfit would turn out, so I like to pay my accessories special attention, even more than my pieces.

OOTD: Calling the Shots

The title of this post is inspired by the name of the lipstick I am wearing – Rimmel London Call the Shots. I have been incredibly busy these last couple of days, dealing with new clients and life in general. I almost didn’t have the take these outfit photos, but I was determined to find the time, against all odds. I believe when you want something so badly, you find the time for it. No room for excuses this year. I am calling the shots in my life!

Spring is here, and I am loving the sunshine we are getting. It is still more rain than sun, but I can’t complain. I made good use of the amazing weather by getting these photos taken. I hope the sunshine stays.

Every piece I have on is an “oldie but goldie”.  I got this black floral dress last year summer, and I have worn it a few times now. It is dead comfy and so easy to style; one of my current favourites. The brown faux leather jacket is also from last season’s collection, and so are the brown boots. If you are a regular reader, you would spot the black bag and sunnies, I have had them for donkey years, and they still look good.

This is the reason why I like to buy quality items. The more you spend on an item, the longer you have it, that is usually the case with me, especially when it comes to accessories – shoes, bags, jewellery and sunglasses. And that is the reason why I like to invest a little more in them, so they serve me for longer.

I also like to sell my old accessories on eBay, and bags do sell quite well on eBay.

February 2017 Outfits

I know we still have a few days left in the month of February but I am feeling very proactive this year, and I know I won’t be featuring any more outfits this month, so here is a quick recap of the outfits I styled this February.

 

OOTD: Birthday in Milan

This look was my first outfit post. I wore this outfit on my birthday in Milan. The dress and the shoes are new wardrobe additions, and I have styled them in other outfits a couple of times now. I found the dress very comfy and warm. It kept me nice and toasty, I didn’t even need to pop on my jacket for most of the day.

I got the dress from Next, and the shoes by Kurt Geiger. The other outfit details are in the post, the link is above.

 

OOTD: Gucci Birthday Present

This outfit was also worn in Milan, and it is my favourite look this February. The sweater and bag are new wardrobe additions. I love the berry colour and the tie cuff design of the sweater. And this gorgeous bag is now my go-to bag. I love the entire look a lot.

I got the sweater from Next, and the bag is Gucci. You can grab the rest of the outfit details via the link above.

 

OOTD: A Spring Outfit

And here is the final look for the month. I wore this outfit some days ago. The weather is getting warmer, and on some days, I don’t need to have on my bulky winter jacket. This day was one of those days, and I hope the weather transitions to Spring quickly.

The t-shirt, flats and necklace are all new additions. I got the t-shirt and flats from a Mercedes-Benz store in Milan. The rest of the outfit details can be found in the outfit post, link above.
