ballerina belle

One of my lifelong dreams was to become a ballerina, and even though I was never able to take more than one class, I love everything ballet related. In fashion, you can get inspired to recreate a ballerina look by combining a tulle skirt with blouses, stripped shirts, tshirts and even sneakers. Here’s a selection on my favorite ballet-inspired looks.

So, when I came across these two tulle skirt DIY, that you can check out here, and here, I didn’t hesitate to make my own.

The cardigan kimono diy was a huge success! I’ve worn it a couple of times already. Here I’ve prepared three looks that show the versatility of the kimono.

Kimonos go great with shorts for a casual evening or a day full of errands.

Substitute the typical blazer for a look that you can wear to the office.

 

happy belated birthday… to me!

Life has been a little hectic, and though I turned 29 last February 14, I hadn’t shared my looks. Celebrating a birthday over a whole weekend is quite fun ^.^bday1friday am/pm :: Had a meeting early in the morning, and then pizza with a bunch of friends, so jeans and a chiffon blouse were the best options.bday2saturday am :: for a brunch with the girls, I turned to my inner gypsy, with a sophisticated turn.

bday3saturday pm :: after watching the sunset, spent the night with some friends over at the beach, which is great if you love kaftans.

bday4sunday am :: since I was meeting a friend for lunch after church, the pastel lace dress + loafers combo seemed the most appropriate.

winter trip to evansville

winter

I’ve been enjoying the cold weather, while visiting my sister at Evansville IN, only because I get to play with coats and boots. Sometimes it is hard to decide what to wear because the main factor is to not get cold, while maintaining a fashionable look.

The trick? Always wear a cool piece, like a scarf or pair of boots, and work your way around it.fauxwinter

Denim is great for mixing different textures.

Statement pieces stand out more with basics.

I do like her style and personality very much (turtle neck included) and would definitely wear a total white look during these christmas days.
