Faux Fur

IMG_0572

Hello beauties! I hope you’re having a fabulous start to the year. I’ve been spending lots of time with family and friends here in Michigan before I head back to Dubai next week. Leaving is always so bitter-sweet but I’m glad I got to soak up a few snowy days and experience a true winter, no matter how brutal. I usually migrate towards soft and feminine looks, but I love a sexy winter outfit with everything from pleather to (faux) fur and bold prints. This outfit may seem warm and toasty but in fact it’s not heavy enough for the temperatures we’re experiencing at the moment. I hope you liked this look and expect to see me trying out new styles this year! Xo

Pink Coat

PinkThis is my last outfit post of the year, and I wanted to end it with a fuzzy cotton candy coat and my favorite beanie of all time. It’s freezing cold in Michigan right now and I’m soaking up every moment of the season with cute red cups of coffee, chunky knits and cozy nights in with my family. I haven’t experienced the grey and gloomy winter days in a few years but all the fun accessories that come along with it are keeping me quite cheerful, so are the Christmas decorations and ongoing music. This outfit was comfortable and mellow, so I thought I’d dress it up with some bright heels. Statement coats are one of my favorite trends this year, and when you need to be wearing one every single day why not choose one in your favorite color? Let me know what you think. Xo

I hope you end this year on a sweet note and I wish you all a fabulous beginning to a new chapter in your lives! Thank you for being part of my journey, it means the world to me.

All I need is Tulle

TulleAlthough I love dressing up on any given day, during the Christmas season I get really excited about shopping the prettiest festive outfits. Ever since I saw Miss Carrie Bradshaw traipsing around Paris in a puffy tulle skirt I’ve been waiting for the perfect excuse to get my hands on one of my own, and now seemed fitting. I chose this dreamy coffee color that I found to be extremely versatile, and decided to pair it with a lace top and these stunning red bow pumps that look just like Christmas to me. Finally I topped the look off with a sparkly headpiece, and some beautiful druzy bangles courtesy of Vitrine Designs. If this isn’t the time to go big or go home, then when is? I hope you loved this outfit as much as I do, let me know what you’re planning to wear for the upcoming celebrations. Xo

Ice Blue

I’m excited to be spending Christmas in Michigan this year and believe it or not I’m looking forward to lots of snow fall. Since it’s cooling down nicely in Dubai, I’m still able to get away with cozy outfits that aren’t too heavy. I think a soft fuzzy sweater is a must, especially if it comes in an icy pastel color. What’s your favorite trend for winter this year? Xo

Lace and Champagne

It’s easy to throw on a bunch of layers to keep warm on those extra chilly days, but dressing up for a holiday party requires some creativity. I personally like choosing textured fabrics, shiny colors and sparkly accents. Midi skirts are perfect for this season because they’re both sexy and elegant and can be matched with different pieces. With the right pair of heels and clutch, your look will be complete. Let me know what you think!

Knits and Things

Just because the weather is cold, doesn’t mean you have to put away all your short rompers and dresses. With the right styling and accessories you can take your favorite pieces from warm to chilly. I wore this romper on my trip to Hawaii with caged pumps and a belt, and while it has a beautiful lace back detail I still wanted to find a way to get more use out of it during the colder months. With a chunky knit sweater or even a cape blazer, some toasty boots and deep plum lips you can transform the look easily. I hope you liked this look and will be trying it out for yourself. Let me know what you think!

Fall Neutrals

Neutrals

Being bound by a certain trend is not my style but luckily for me pastels and neutrals are really in this Fall. I personally love wearing white after labor day, and a neutral palette is a great way to brighten up a dull rainy day. The important thing is to choose the right textures and of course the perfect accessories. Zara has luxuriously soft basic sweaters which are available in the most beautiful colors this year. These are cozy enough to keep you warm but not too heavy so you can throw on a fur vest or a cape for extra warmth. Pair this soft look with chunky layered necklaces and a nice floppy hat and you are good to go! I hope you liked this look, will you be wearing white this fall?

Pleats and Pleather

I am your average girly-girl but I do love an outfit with an edge, and pleather gives me just what I need. This pleated A-line skirt is so versatile and can go with any number of tops. I chose to add more femininity to this look with a bold floral top and suede booties, but I did keep the colors all cool and monochromatic. Since berry-toned lips are a must this fall, I thought it would make the perfect accessory for the look. I’m so ready for the weather to cool down here in Dubai so I can create different outfits with my new skirt! Let me know what you think. Xo

Printed Jumpsuit

When it comes to fashion, summer style is my absolute favorite. Cute shorts, flowy dresses and a printed jumpsuit dominate my wardrobe this time of year. Jumpsuits are both stylish and comfortable, and you can dress them up with heels or dress them down with a denim vest and gladiators. I chose this particular jumpsuit for the beautiful coral flower print and the flattering fit.

Floral Jumpsuit

 

For us girls who are heavier on top, a sweetheart neckline and bandeau top are perfect for accentuating the waistline and highlighting an hourglass figure. For someone more petite, I recommend a slightly loose fit with a cinched waist which is a great everyday look.

Whether you prefer something more formal or a little playful there are so many gorgeous printed jumpsuits out there, so have some fun with picking different prints or styles and just make sure the fit is comfortable for you!
