Today's look is full of recent trends, however, they seem to compliment each other. Last month I paired this cotton woven kaftan with a sporty vibe. This time, I decided to wear it with pieces with the same vibe in order to create a harmonious yet fun look. I'm so glad espadrilles are trending again; not just because I have a few pairs in my wardrobe that are dying to see the day light, but because they're a very comfortable way to add a lady-like touch to any look.
MY SMALL WARDROBE
…the source of my personal street style looks
The day of remembrance for those that served in the United States armed forces is right around the corner. I'm not originally from this country, however, I've lived here for almost 20 years, therefore, I'm also very thankful for all the men and women that have paid the ultimate price to ensure the freedom that my family and I are so privileged to enjoy.
As many of you know, besides loving bohemian looks, I also love anything that had to do with a nautical theme. Red, white and blue are obviously the colors that represent a nautical style and also the United Sates flag, hence the reason why I decided to wear a nautical look for my Memorial Day blog post.
I chose to wear my now famous Converse retro sneakers in order have a freedom of movement while spending a day off from work and enjoying our downtown new Artivity on the Green park. We also had a couple drinks in order to celebrate with a toast to one of my outfits appearing in the June print issue of People Style Watch magazine.
By the way, I want to give thanks once again, to the blogs and websites that had interviewed me or had one of my outfits featured in your blog posts or magazines pages. It's always a great honor for me to see my style inspiring others.
I have received a quiet few emails from my readers suggesting a vineyard style category. My boyfriend and I thought that was a great idea, since we both love to visit Yadkin Valley wineries very often. I'll be working on this project and labeling my posts in order to come up with this category soon, and I will name it "Wine Country Style". If you're following me on Instagram you should know by now that I love wine, therefore, I love trying on different wines from North Carolina area. Every time I visit a winery, I think about what to wear and what will be appropriate for the weather at the moment. My mood usually craves for outfits with a bohemian flare when going to vineyards, and I guess is because the landscaping and atmosphere compliments this type of dress code.
In this opportunity, we went back to Raffaldini Vineyards and Winery after a busy day around the house. When the weather is warm or even in Fall, we love to come here and enjoy the view while sipping their delicious wine. The view is terrific, you can see from the deck a wonderful belt of North Carolina Mountains. My favorite part from this winery besides their summer wine, is the yellow roses fence that adorn the dirt road entrance. This place is a combination of rustic and sophisticated touches, which pretty much screams my name.
In this occasion, I decided to wear an off-the-shoulder blouse with a pair of sweet gladiator sandals. I wanted to keep a good balance with my look, therefore, I decided to cover most of my legs with a midi-skirt, that way my shoulders are the only ones doing the talk. A necklace was completely out of the question, however, a large pair of chandelier earrings seemed to be a better idea to wear with an off-the-shoulder top. No hat? Well, sometimes I want to let other pieces stand out and hats can easily steal the attention.
