How I Wore My Button Down Shirt


Let me start by saying that yesterday I refused to check on the weather app because I wanted to wear white almost from head to toe. By the time I was almost ready, the rain start pouring, and then a few minutes later all of a sudden the rain stopped. We quickly moved to town to take the pictures before it started raining again and as you can see, my hair didn't get a chance to air dry. I pretty much spent the rest of the day in this outfit, but later in the day I switched shoes (smarter move).

A button-down shirt with boyfriend jeans seems to be a very easy, even boring kind of outfit, however, there are tons of things that we can do in order to spice up this popular look. You can add a statement necklace, a colorful belt or bag or even a scarf. The scarf I'm wearing with this shirt is actually a vintage dress sash, but for some reason I never wore it as intended. In this look, I wanted to play with shades of white and black accents around one of my favorite boyfriend jeans.

Floral Print Maxi Dress & High Top Sneakers


I agree with the famous saying "opposites attract" and I believe it even more when it is applied in the world of fashion. For example, this Summer I've been pairing my boyish high top sneakers with skirts, dresses and feminine tops. I love how this type of combos can be so practical and yet so much fun to wear almost all year round. 
Last week before heading to our trip to Michigan, I wore this outfit to go dinner out and later in the night to go have some drinks with the locals. I paired my so loved vintage Travel Fox sneakers with this tropical print maxi dress and which, by the way, I don't wear it as often as I should. The dress was too long to wear with low heeled shoes, therefore, I cut 3 inches from the hemline in order to make it more versatile. You would think this dress is fun just by itself, but don't let it fool you. I tried to keep things minimal but the entire look didn't look right and also it didn't scream my name. I needed a statement belt with an interesting texture and perhaps a bag with similar strength in order to add more balance to the overall look.

INSTA TRAVEL / LAKE MICHIGAN


This week, we had a great time in Michigan. We go every year to visit my boyfriend's family and of course to enjoy one of the top 10 biggest lakes in the world. Beside spending quality time with his family, my favorite activity in Michigan is watching the sunsets at the lake. I just can't get enough of the warm colors that saturate the sky and how the water reflects the sleepy sunlight.
By the way, most of these pictures were also posted in Instagram in daily basis, but I wanted to share with my blog readers in case you aren't following me there.

Interestingly Preppy


I like preppy looks, but I like them even more when they're styled with one or two vintages pieces. We all know that vintage pieces can add a magical twist to any look, and with that in mind, I came up with this look. This preppy and adorable skirt is a recent purchase and the rest of the items in this look are vintage or old purchases. The cowboy shirt and the whip belt are vintage and obviously they added an American western touch to this look.
As I'm typing this post, I'm traveling to Michigan to visit my boyfriend's family, therefore, I'll take a break from posting in my blog for about a week. Next week if God permits, I'll be back in business, however, I'll continue staying active all this week in my Instagram account.

Subtle Mix of Prints and High Top Sneakers


This coming weekend we are heading to Michigan to visit my boyfriend's family and with that in mind I decided to come up with an outfit around a Detroit Tigers baseball hat. My boyfriend loves his Tigers and as a faithful fan, he has a good collection of their hats, but he also has managed to put some on my head. The latest he bought me was this Hawaiian/camo print hat, which I really dig because it has mixed patterns in neutral colors.
 I was going for a boyish and sporty look around my hat, but as usual, I wanted to add a feminine touch. This lady-like blouse with a similar tropical print seemed to be the perfect piece for my black on black ensemble. I loved the fact that I was wearing a mixed-print outfit without being so obvious to the eye. Now, this look couldn't be right without a pair of cool sneakers, and since I love high top styles, I decided to wear my sweet leather Converse.

Little Floral Dress


I firmly believe that a floral dress can be almost as versatile as a black dress, therefore, it's easy to enhance it's looks by accessorizing it with other fun pieces. 
For this occasion, I wanted to add an edgy touch to my skater floral dress by layering it with a distressed denim vest. I also opted to wear accessories made out of natural materials (wood, burlap and wicker) in order to bring a summery feel. Once again, I'm wearing my white pumps which, in my opinion, gave this look a crisp and elegant touch.
