All About The Plaid

20171115_143006-01

Just when you thought you have seen all the plaid/checked pieces this season, you bump into the pants of life. I know I am a little late to jump into this trend but I already had a few blazers and trousers from a couple of years ago so it made no sense for me to buy into the plaid craze. I am trying to be sensible with my buying.

I literally bumped into these pants by accident, ran to the fitting room to try them on and it was love at first try. The fit is impeccable, especially for the curvier ladies and the fold at the bottom make me feel so cool, maybe even edgy. This pants can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion or mood, I just prefer to wear heels over flats because I am not tall.

I just added a white graphic Femme slogan tee and nude sandals and my casual smart look was pretty much complete.

Draped In Flowers

FB39-1

This has got to be one of the most dreamy, romantic and comfortable dress I know. Florals have been very popular this year, and to be honest I’m loving it. I have been careful not to go overboard with florals, as they can get overwhelming very quickly. This one is from the ErdemxHM collaboration.

This dress I wore out to lunch and it has to be the most interesting yet simple dress I own. The lace detail along the chest area and around the skirt give it just the right amount of romance and the bow tie at the neck is so feminine.

I paired it with white booties, which I love and a black cross body bag.

Here are some gorgeous floral dresses:

What I Wore – Leather and Lace

What I Wore – Leather and Lace

FB37-4

I am enjoying everything leather right now; leather pants, shorts, skirts, jackets, Give it all to me. And the fact that I can wear them without sweating a bucket is just music to my heart. I was particularly drawn to this pair of shorts because of the pretty burgundy color and the fact that it fits a little loosely high on the waist. This means I can dress it up or down, depending on what look I’m going for. I like to buy pieces that I can wear over and over in many different ways.

I paired them with this white lace blouse, one of my all time favorites, for a more sophisticated look and upgraded it with these killer booties. The booties are so comfortable and I like that they are almost half pumps half booties, something i haven’t seen around a lot. I finished the look with my trusted leather jacket.

5 Masks for Every Skin Type

Mask 2

When it comes to masks I am a hoarder/collector/excessive user. I probably use a mask my face every day, or every other day if I don’t have the time, and I alternate with several masks. I don’t necessarily have many skin concerns, apart from the usual rash here and there, or a hormonal spot or dullness and the main one which is the pursuit of perfect skin all year round. Something that I think is achievable..ok maybe not perfect skin but pretty good skin.
