Faux fur vest as an essential piece for Fall 2015

When I think of bohemian style, I think of fringe, suede, kimono and bell sleeves, ponchos, floppy hats, patchwork, ruffles, and of course fur vests. It’s seems like I can’t get enough of this boho trend, because I am simply adore every single element, colour or fabric that resemble the hippie 70s look.

How to choose the right look with your Faux fur

Faux fur vest is one of the most stylish and luxe ways to keep warm during the chilly days of October. I love the cozy feel and the fact that it’s adding an extra layer of warmth to any outfit. If to be honest, the only issue I have with fur vest, is that it’s tend to add bulk. Needless to say that I have no desire to add unnecessary extra weight to my appearance, but I also believe that fashion is all about taking chances.

The key is balance, it’s important to wear something light and thin underneath fur. I am also suggest to play with pattern and textures, in order to create a modern and interesting look

I put this look together with a trendy fall pieces: oxford shoes and culottes pants. To keep the look soft and feminine, I wore it with a airy white shirt with a unique flirty details, that also embrace the 70s. I love the combination between femininity and masculinity. The luxe bohemian details get a modern twist with the ‘borrow from the boys’ shoes.

Happy summer: Wearing yellow

Usually I am afraid of wearing yellow because of my blond hair and my yellowish skin tone, but somehow this sweet dress from Zara makes the colour work. I think it because of the golden tone and the simple loose fit, which is perfect for any occasion, and anyway it’s summer so wearing yellow is must….

How to wear yellow dress

Apparently the colour which I choose affected my mood, since I found myself smiling all the time. Maybe I should wear yellow more often!

I paired it with an Aldo’s fringe sandals and with my favourite timeless-elegant bag from Marc Jacobs. The flowing cut looks great with sandals for a casual day look, but you can also wear it with pumps or flats for work. Mixing yellow with neutrals, especially with white, create a balance look, which make the vivd colour shine.

Jumpsuit – A must have piece for summer 2015

With the arrival of warmer weather, it’s time to refresh my wardrobe with a summer statement piece: Jumpsuit
The jumpsuit was very popular during the 70s, so clearly (with all the 70s influences) this one piece become a must have this season.

My jumpsuit

I’ve always had a weakness to jumpsuit, so you can guess how excited I was, when I found this strapless overalls on French Connection last weekend. I didn’t plan to buy another jumpsuit, but I couldn’t resist. I love the sporty cool silhouette and the bali tropical print, which is perfect for the summer days. The lightweight fabric make it so easy to wear and it’s also versatile. You can dress it up just by adding a statement necklace and high heels.

As a busy mom, sometime I just want to look stylish without beating my brains out. Simply throw this jumpsuits with a flat sandals and you are ready to go, or in my case, ready to run (after my boys… )

Autumn Leaves and long cozy cardigans

In the past few days, all I do is to unpack my boxes and organize my new/old house. My crying cutest baby make it even more challenging. You can guess why I can’t find  a good time to write. Maybe It’s a sigh that I need to take a break, I really don’t know from what… but one thing is for sure: Long vacation is needed. Only me and my husband , oh and my clothes too.

This fall my biggest crash is on a long cozy cardigans, the one that gives any outfit en effortless feel, even so it’s took hours to build the look. (but no one will notice it beside you) I wore my extra long cardigan (urban outfitters have  a big selection of cozy cardigans) with a feminine peplum top from Mango (I’ve just open a box and found this from my pre pregnant body) The black snake print leggings gives it a cool twist, without losing to comfort zone.

Summer holiday

Just before the summer is over, here is an outfit I’d like to share with you, from the my last vacation to Italy. This look combine between several summer elements: White crochet top, light weight shorts and woven straw hat.  The relax fit shorts which is ideal for the hot summer day, balance the delicate fitted top. All the other little deatails gives me that extra boost of uniqueness I needed. Hopefully the summer will continue into mid September, although the fall fashion is just around the corner and there are some pieces I can’t wait to get my hands on them…

It’s getting hot in here…

It’s 6 am, and I can’t sleep because it’s too hot here. Around 30°C and no air condisiner! so here I am writing this post…

High temperatures with high humidity are not my favourite combination at all! When it’s comes to dressing, all I want is to keep everything simple. This strapless maxi dress is absolutely perfect for the hot summer days. It’s soft and flowy and it’s made from lightweight fabric, so I can still look fashionable and feel comfortable. The multi coloured animal print is unique and pretty but because of the all over prints, it’s require to maintain the rest of the look clean and simple. I choose to wear flat nude sandals with a classy purple cross side bag and light blue necklace. Hope you like it. Enjoy your weekend!

Relaxed weekend

Packing for moving can be quite stressful. even for a well experience family like us. Our solution was to take a relaxed lunch break at Urban restaurant in Luxembourg and enjoy the sunny day outside. The vertical striped shorts I wore, along with the flat sandals and the knitted crochet top contributed to the breezy (but temporary) atmosphere. I choose to keep my outfit comfortable and simple but still pulled together.

Those fashion pieces, which I wore are versatile and looks great with almost every outfit. The flat sandals from Topshop have fan and glamorous details, I can wear them all day long and even all night with a nice evening dress. As for the shorts, I am already planning to wear  them with high heels and relaxed fit blouse for a night out. The only problem is that I need to get a babysitter for that…


I forgot to mention, the food was great!!!
