Floral Dress

Hi Guys

With winter being just around the corner, soon it will be so cold here that one can not wear anything but chunky parkas. So I thought to take advantage of these last days of fall and wear my favorite floral dress.

For the first look I wore a grey sleeveless tunic sweater from Cubus-you can find a similar one here and here-over the dress . Then I added a black belt to emphasize my waist and put on a grey Chelsea boot from Ecco –here-. The hat is my favorite one from Esprit and the  bag is an old one from H&M. I couldn’t find the exact items but here is a similar hat and  you can check some of my favorite crossbody bags here, here and here.

Ecco boots

I kept all accessories simple since I wanted the dress to be the statement piece.

For the second look I paired a high neck dark sweater from Zara –here–  with a black faux leather leggings -similar here-. For shoes I wore these old black boots from Massimodutti –here you can find similar ones-. I wore the floral dress on top and rolled up the sleeves letting more of the sweater be visible.

Massimo Dutti boots

Then I picked a bright brown cross body bag –here– since its contrast with the rest of the look makes the whole outfit more interesting.

For this look I didn’t add any belt since I love the soft  loose flowy dress against the boots and  faux leather leggings .

Winter essentials

Hi guys

Here are 7 items that I think every girl needs to upgrade her closet for the winter.

1-  Warm classic coat

Choose a model that you feel comfortable wearing it and pick a neutral color. This way you get to wear it with almost anything.

The coat is from Karen Millen (similar here)

2- Blanket scarf

You can find them at any store, with different color, material and price. I think this is a must have. Since you get to use them during autumn and spring nights I suggest to purchase two scarves with different colors; one dark color and one in a lighter shade.

The left one is from ZARA (similar here), the right one is from Hollister (similar here)

3- Hat/ Beanie

I personally prefer hat, but if you leave in a cold climate, beanie is a must have. Since beanies are popular again, I’m sure you can find something you like. When it comes to hats, honestly I can’t get enough of them. A good shape hat can elevate any outfit immediately.

The hat is from Esprit (here is a similar one on sale), The beanie is from Bickley$Mitchel.

4-Over the knee boots

Over the knee boots are here to stay for a long time, that I’m sure about. So look at it as an investment. Please don’t compromise when it comes to shoes. It’s important to wear shoes that are comfortable and support your feet, knees and back properly. Don’t buy cheep shoes ( ask yourself why they’re so cheap? ). Shoes are investment not only in financial terms, but they are also important regarding your health. Choose wisely.

I bought mine from Zalando and they are on sale right now.

5-Warm leggings/tights

I love this fleece lined leggings from Åhlens. There are other brands like Forever 21 that offer the similar type of leggings. Since this is the only one that I have tried I can’t suggest other ones.

6-Gloves

I always wear gloves when it is cold. Proper gloves can be stylish and protect your hands at the same time. I love wearing gloves. I even wear mitten occasionally.

I just want to emphasize that all of these are just suggestions and what I like.  Just remember that confidence is the most important accessory you need. Style is not about the cloth that you are wearing, it’s about how you choose to wear them.
