NYE Look – it’s all about the details

It’s officially freezing outside and all I want is to wear a big chunky sweater that will keep me warm and cozy, but with all do respect, there are some exceptional – The holidays season. How can you celebrate NYE without dressing up or wearing a statement piece of jewelry? It’s one of those days that you can glam up your look without feeling uncomfortable, go all the way with your fancy style.

This year I decided to celebrate NYE with my family in an Italian restaurant, I didn’t want to look over the top, but I still felt that I need to add some drama to my look, which included floral jumpsuit and fur coat.

One of the way to do it is by wearing a statement accessory that can enhance your style and create your own signature. Bold necklace like this Topaz choker with tassel details, will inject some glam in a victorian way to your evening look and will bring your look to the next level. Another option is to choose a statement ring that will draw attention to your hands ,especially when you are holding your favourite cocktail drink. This eye-catching ring stole my heart. It gives some pure fun to your outfit and in my opinion, the bigger and brighter, the better. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone from time to time and think outside the box, especially in festive events.

The perfect holiday in Corporate Stays

The holidays are a great time for family bonding activities, either if you are celebrating Hanukkah or Christmas, one thing is for sure, there is no perfect way to do it rather than take a family vacation.

Last week we decided to take a quick break from the stressful daily life and go on a holiday vacation in the charming city, Montreal. Since I am a big city girl and so do my family, escaping from one big city, as Toronto, to another magnificence one, sound like a good idea. To fit our needs, we were looking for a roomy space in the heart of the downtown,with parking nearby and which will also be in a reasonable price. Needless to say that it’s not an easy mission. I was so glad when I came across the company Corporate Stays,  luxury rental apartments, which suit perfectly to families with kids. I love the idea that it has all the facilities hotel has to offer,like swimming pool and gym, with the convenience of fully furniture apartment, including a private underground parking (no need to worry about finding a parking spot).

We stayed in Corporate Stays for three amazing nights, that were totally what we needed, re-energize our mind in a modern yet cozy loft. If you are looking for a boutique hotel, this is the perfect place for you when you are visiting in Montreal. I am really admired from the design stylish room with the attention to all details. Full kitchen, a washer and a dryer, 42” flat-screen television, with cable and DVD player,luxurious Queen bed, hair dryer  and hair systems toupee and one of the most important thing for me, a roomy closet for all the pieces, I brought with me. It is like an AirBnB apartment but in a luxury hotel way  (a 24/7 emergency line and an office located inside the building for any question or assistance). Another plus, there was a little desk in our room with super fast WiFi, so my husband and I could worked effectively and catch up with our latest emails. could I ask for more?

Every day in our vacation, start with cuddling in the bed with my kids, while staring at the wide window, seeing the snowfall on the beautiful city. My husband cooked a delicious breakfast for us, thanks to the fully equipped kitchen and I was in charge of bringing the cappuccinos from the restaurant-coffee bar called Fiorellino, which was just around the building. If you are a pizza lover, this is the place for you! The chic and modern place which function as a snack bar by day and as an Italian restaurant by night, are having one of the best pizzas I’ve ever tasted in Canada.

Here are some great moments from our dreamy vacation, Seeing these pictures defiantly make me wanna go back in time…

I must admit that in a first glint, Kenzo’s jungle-inspired collection was a bit intimidating for me, even so I really love colourful and bright prints. I decided to give it a try and not only because I couldn’t leave the store with empty hands.

classy piece of jewelry

It’s hard for me to admit, but currently I am on a tight budget, which means buying less clothes and try to focus on giving a new life to my current pieces. One way to spice up your closet without going on a shopping spree is by putting your efforts on these little details that will make your clothes looks more attractive again. I would suggest to invest on a piece of jewelry that will complete your outfit and will give it a stylish boost. 

Jewelry charms are great choice since they are not only jazzing up your outfit, but also will define your own personality, since your can built your own charms according to your own taste. This is defiantly what makes it more meaningful, also as a gift to your beloved.

soufeel-details

One of my favourite jewelry brand is Soufeel, therefore I was so excited to collaborate with them again. The label curries wide selection of beads, bracelets and other accessories including memorable charms with your themed photos. All of their products are made from 925 sterling silver. The bracelet ‘s sizing is also customized, so you can actually choose the length that will match perfectly to your hand. Also their prices are really affordable .

I picked this bracelet with three charms in earthy vibrant hue. I think that having a bit of colour is a perfect way to highlight your fall winter look, but still keep it classy.

I wore it with a plaid shirt dress from Club Monaco and kimono from French Connection, both pieces were neglected in my closet, until I discovered them again when I was organizing my closet.

Layers in style

The perfect coverup for late fall is the oversized wool jacket.

fall-leaves

This is the time of year that you need to bundle up, but the common concern is how to add layers without feel bulky. Believe it or not, I really think that there are some creative tricks that will help you brave the cold in style, like choosing a light weight coat that will not add any volume to your look and will easily be removed if you heat up. Other way is playing with proportions, for example, wearing a long coat, a fitted knit with a cutting-edge detailing and a body-skimming pants with unique details or textures like these cute ruffles in the bottom. The three pieces complement each other perfectly and bring some edginess to classic layers look.

I took advantage of the decent temperatures and paired it with a lace up shoes. Even so I love boots, I am still not ready to wear them yet…
