How to wear: a midi yellow skirt

Sometimes we find pieces that could look a bit difficult to match at first sight. That happened to me with this beautiful H&M neon yellow midi skirt. I fell in love with it straight away and had to buy it, but then I started thinking on how I was going to wear it.

hmprod-2This striking yellow could not be the easiest one unless is proper Summer and you are super tanned, although I’m a big fun of bright colours for the whole year. The best trick for cold weather is mixing them with plain darker garments or all shades of grey, that will help the outfit to be a bit more subtle.

 

Sweatshirts love

 

If you follow me on Instagram you already know that I love to mix sportwear in my outfits: sneakers, sweatshirts, baggy pants… So for the first look I have chosen  a variety of sweatshirts in different prints and colours and I added a pair of sandals in a darker shade. This idea is perfect for the day time, a Sunday look or a shopping trip.
Look ladylike

 

The second look is more ladylike thanks to a beautiful pair of black high heels, a bodysuit (that are everywhere at the moment) and the right accessories. The amazing lime colour of the skirt matches with the pastel blue of the bag, the golden jewelry and the pink 60’s shades. On top of that, nothing better than a black peplum jacket and the cat ears beret for the bravest ones.

 

Bomber jacket + white trainers

 

 

The last option is my favourite: colourful, comfy and very quirky (simply me!) To get this idea you need white and simple trainers Stan Smith style, a waist shirt or tshirt (tuck it in, so you play with the volume) and the super trend of the season: the bomber jacket. To add some fun to it, play with printed accesorios and jewelry.

Which one is your favourite outfit: sweatshirt, ladylike or bomber jacket?

Any other idea for the cold days of Spring?

Have a lovely day

How to make a black garment stand out

Black + good accessories
                                 
                                             

Today I would like to share with you some of my last clothing buys and ideas to make them more special with good accessories.

Black is always a safe color for any season, it is also flattering and smart. You will never go wrong with this dark shade if you now how to mix and match it.

In this occasion I got a really easy dress from H&M (that fits great if you are a curvy girl like me, emphasizing the waist, something that I love) and a gorgeous jumpsuit from Hoss Intropia (that makes your legs endless and has a very sexy back without showing anything, so you can wear it to a lot of dressy parties)

In term of accessories to make the most of these great 2 pieces, I have chosen bold ones: leopard heels, chunky necklaces or Burberry lookalike scarves that change completely the look but keep it chic and elegant. If you prefer to go for a headband like this beauty I wouldn’t add much more than a classy bag in a plain or bold colour and probably some sexy straps suede sandals that can be worn with tights in winter and look great. I have those heels and they are quite comfortable and match almost all my evening outfits, could be worn with dresses, but also with trousers, etc…so it is a safe pair to have in your essential wardrobe.

What would you wear with my new black jumpsuit and dress?

Do you have any basic in your closet that you update every time with different accessories?

How I wear my Isabel Marant for H&M boots

Yes, I was one of the lucky ones that got the Isabel Marant for H&M fringed boots a couple of weeks ago. They arrived at home so I didn’t have to queue to buy them, only a bit of refreshing the browser for an hour or two!

I still haven’t worn them, but they look very nice, good quality leather, very comfortable heel and the best is how you feel when you have them on… as cool and effortless as the French designer. These are the kind of boots I have been looking for for ages, that go with girly dresses and also with leather trousers or a miniskirt for the evening.

Moreover, I bought the children’s cap that I have been matching with my outfits since I received my parcel. It is perfect for the chilly London weather and doesn’t flatten my hair too much, so I really love it.

One of my friends in Spain bought me the Isabel Marant earrings because I couldn’t go to the preview of the collection in the Madrid store… She is so sweet!! Thanks Maria! The earrings are gorgeous and you know how much I love these hippy chic accessories.

Please check out my ideas to style the boots, a bit of a quirky mix, but lots of fun ;) Hope you like them.

Another Marant style sneakers in my wardrobe

Another sneakers in, yes, I know I have too many, but I love them! They are super comfy and super similar to the Isabel Marant´s Willow ones. They are from the Spanish brand Fashion Pills, they have them in this colour and in black, but most of the time are sold out (if you send them and email they let you know as soon as they have them back in stock). If you like them you can pick them up in Barcelona because they only deliver to Spain.

I´ve been wearing them the whole weekend in East London with jeans and long dresses, the perfect and relaxed look to enjoy Hackney, the Broadway Market or London Fields.

Soon I will show you more similar low cost Marant style sneakers. You already saw the River Island ones some months ago here.

Do you like them or are too much for you?
