Winter Goods

I’ve never experienced a winter where you can wear dresses and open toe heels. It’s absurd yet totally cool all at the same time. I’m not complaining, well maybe sometimes if its really cold but that’s not the point. The point today is to share my goods that I purchased at *surprise surprise* Zara. Back story: I’ve been watching GG lately, and really have been focusing on the fashion, so I tried to stick to what would GG wear manta for this spree. Without further ado, here are my goods. 

 

  • As I start to ascend in my adult years, I am trying to wear more dresses/I really enjoy dresses heaps more now. This v-neck babydoll dress is PERFECT for layering with those chunky knit sweaters. Or if it’s a tad warmer, that crop cotton T you have will pair just as perfectly. Also, this dress reminded me of Blair and Serena put together. What do you think?

Fun fact: This dress has pockets. Sold.

  • My eye was caught to the ruching of this beautiful beautiful jumpsuit. Have you ever seen a jumpsuit with chord locks?? On an even more exciting note, it fits me in vertical length as well, which never ever happens. So thank you Zara for making appropriate fitting jumpsuits for vertically challenged people. (Serena inspired)

  • I’m not sure what’s been up with me, but ya girl has been really intrigued with velvet blush pink. Yah, I know, right? I made an acceptation because I told myself colour is needed in my wardrobe, thus, the shoes had to be bought. They are so fun, with them being velvet and platform as well. You can definitely rock the socks in these heels or go all nude. Winning all around. (Vanessa inspired)

I also still try to buy pieces that I can wear together instead one time. Platform shoes go really well with jumpsuits to add height if the leg is a little too long. Also, baby doll dresses look very chic with platform shoes. They create a more appropriate aged looking outfit, rather than looking 12 again.

Again cannot be more thrilled to be wearing these kind of pieces in winter. Really looking forward to rocking these velvet babes in the sunshine!!

Recent Favs

I figured I would share with you all my recent favs, or even items that I have been using very frequently lately.

I am very grateful I stashed this baby in my suitcase. At first, I did not think I would need but, yup, 100% needed it. You can find the same one here!

If you follow me on Insta, you will know that pink is NOT a colour I wear nor can usually wear (if you want to follow me, you can right here). It tends to wash me out but… I found a pink that is an exception and it’s also VELVET! Guys, when I saw this piece, without hesitation grabbed it && they had one more Small… it was meant to be! Also, I am not quite sure if this is a dressing gown or just a kimono, but it works either way. You can find a similar one here.

Crop tops were never an essential to my wardrobe until I was hit with some inspiration while looking at the new Zara collection. One word: LAYERS. Now, layers are my thing and so are pairing crop tops with big baggy sweaters, long sleeves and even short sleeve blouses. If you want to jazz up any top and I mean any top, just at a crop and it’s like you’re in grade school all over again but with style. This baby is also on sale right now, so check it out right here.

I have to say that these PJ pants are the cutest and most comfortable bottoms I’ve ever worn. Peter Alexander made these with his signature pup, think you can guess it… wiener dog. Since we don’t have one in the states, I told myself it was a MUST-GET when I was over here. If you have never heard of PA 1. you’re missing && 2. you can check his designs out here.

Spurts some Flowerbomb on ya once in awhile, ok? Sometimes you just need to smell like flowers and heaven hence the name. And Viktor&Rolf has done the deed. My go-to spray always always always will be this. It can be found at none other than the infamous Nordies.

XOXO,

Basic Babe

As I am preparing for my upcoming move/adventure I am challenging myself to pack a little as possible.

I am bringing 2 backpacks. One for my computer and essentials. Then, the other one is a 44L for clothes and shoes. LET’S DO THIS!

I have been inspired in one of Lauren Conrad’s books about travel. She spoke about how traveling overseas and in the country to never pack anything you wouldn’t want to loose. That cuts down my leftovers of what I didn’t sell in closet to probably about 2 items, haha but seriously. Since this is going to challenge myself to pack light and only what I need, I figured basic were the way to go.

Forever21 has cute and affordable basics, so I couldn’t have done better because if my backpack was left somewhere or stolen, I am not loosing heaps of money. However, I hope this will not be the case though! Preparation is always key.

I found a few tops that are very versatile thus, lighter the backpack will be, yassss!!!

You can check these cute little tank crops here. && this adorable Velvet crop here, as well.

I wanted to stick to pretty neutral colors, that way I can dress them up and down no matter what. I also wanted a nice dressier shirt that way I don’t have too rely on jewelry every day. Jewelry weighs a lot so, less jewelry the better. No matter what though, basic tops are always a go-to for any look. Cotton is easy to dress up, so from day to night, you’re set babe!

Peek-A-Boo

If I could have a forever outfit, this one may be it. Or, essentially, it qualifies to be my favourite outfit for 2017, thus far.

but you know what, this outfit qualifies for a morning look all the way to a HH look. You’re welcome (;

Ugh, seriously drooling over this right now! I am so obsessed with the hardcore edge-look. It screams BADASS. Who wouldn’t want an outfit like that? There is so much texture, character and simplicity from head to toe.

For all of those who are new or have been always part of the BCD family, my “style” is all about being versatile, multiple-wears and trying something new. For this outfit, I am going to categorize it as, something new. This outfit speaks volumes with the peek-a-boo mesh, ripped-T, platform booties and simple accessories. It is a must though, to wear heels and or booties to complete the boldness…

However, however, however, if you are not a heels kind of gal, FEAR NOT! Runners are acceptable as well with those go-to flats. But, please make sure they are point-toes, so they add the effect of a more classy, rather than going to the grocery store run. Unless you’re about that look during HH then more power to ya!
