SHADES OF GREY

December 22, 2014


Good morning, Everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

I think I mentioned on numerous occasions how much I enjoy the Holiday season! I love Christmas music and decorated tress, sound of jingle bells, wrapping presents, and coffee with eggnog. Granted the latter one is an acquired taste, but I got addicted to eggnog back in Canada, so now I can't imagine Christmas without it:) Yet, what I love about Christmas the most is spending quality time with family and friends. We don't always get to enjoy as much time together through out the year as we would like, but no mater what happens, we always get together during the Holiday season.


CAMEL & CREAM

December 19, 2014


Good morning and happy Friday, Everyone! How was your week? 

I just wanted to say a quick hello and share a few images of an outfit I wore to dinner with Emil on Thursday. Though, I am definitely still having a love affair with black, lately, I find that I am slowly returning to wearing color again. Granted, I am still very far away from pulling out my bright pink coats and turquoise pumps, and the color palette I tend to be attracted to right now is much calmer and softer, nonetheless, color is definitely making it's way back into my outfits. 


BOYFRIEND STYLE

December 17, 2014

Good morning, Everyone! I hope this week is going great for you? 

Ever since Emil and I started this blog about 4 years ago, we've been talking about posting a look styled complete by him. Though I always believed it was a great idea, I am also the first to admit it's not always easy for me to give complete creative control to someone else, even to someone who knows me and my style as well as he does. 

Yet, as reluctant as I was to let him style a look for me, I have to admit, I was definitely curious to see what he would come up with. I tried to remember some of his favorite looks on me, things that he liked in general, but I couldn't think of a definitive look or style. I know boys generally love dresses and girly things, and he is certainly not an exception in that sense, yet, he always said how much he loved seeing simple things like jeans and cute sweaters on me. So after a while, I let my curiosity take over and gave him complete and total control!


POSEIDON

December 15, 2014


Good morning and happy Monday, Everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  

Wanted to share an outfit I wore to a recent impromptu shopping trip. After a few cold, rainy days, I woke up on Friday hoping to see some sunshine, but instead was greeted by dark clouds and chilly breeze. Personally, I don't mind the cold that much, but lack of sunshine, especially a few days in a row, makes me seriously blue. After some sulking and whining, Emil and I decided to take a walk around our favorite spot on Melrose in an effort to chase away some of these blues. After all, is there really a better cure for bad mood than some shopping and dining? Well, that and of course wearing your new favorite sweater also tends to do the trick... At least for me:) 

A TOUCH OF TEAL

December 14, 2014

Good morning, Everyone! I hope your weekend is going great so far! 

As I was trying to figure out what to wear to a dinner with friends last night, I came across  this beautiful teal StyleStalker jacket I got specifically for an event coming up in a few weeks and just  couldn't resist wearing it a bit earlier:) As I have mentioned before, most of the time my outfits begin with a single anchor piece and once I figure out what it is, everything magically falls into place:) 

Since last night's dinner was supposed to be a somewhat dressier affair, I decided to step it up a notch with my make up and forgo my usual no-eyeshadow-cat-liner eye make up and rosy lips in favor of a more dramatic sparkly eyes and shimmery copper lips. 


THE PERFECT PLAID

December 12, 2014


Good morning and happy almost weekend, Everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful week! 

I wanted to take this opportunity to share yet another one of my outfits comprised entirely of current favorites. Take the denim shirt I am wearing in today's post for example, love the shrunken, slightly more feminine fit and of course the blue-tone plaid adds that extra wow factor, I always look for in pieces. Today, I  paired with a cute leather RED Valentino mini I found on a recent trip to Nordstrom. A big fan of leather skirts in general, what I love about the particular one I am wearing in today's post, is the classic pencil-fitting silhouette combined with the edgier feel of leather. Though normally I am all about details, I actually prefer the cleaner style of this one, because I think it makes it mush more versatile. I love the way it looks paired with more casual pieces like denim shirts, oversized sweaters and chunky boots, yet I could just as easily wear it with fitted blazers, feminine blouses and  strappy heels for a slightly edgier take on a night-time look. 


EXPRESS GIFT GUIDE

December 10, 2014

Good morning, Everyone! How is your week going so far? 

As I have mentioned before, I absolutely love the Holiday season and shopping for gifts is one of my favorite things to do! Since I like to savor this experience, normally I start shopping for gifts fairly early. And of course this year is no exception:) For the past few months, I've been scouring though my favorite stores, making mental notes of all the cute things I find, so I could get them closer to Christmas. I know, few months seems like a long time, but as I mentioned before, shopping for gifts is my favorite thing ever! So, I would probably start shopping for next year the day after Christmas if I could:)
