I love printed skirts, but right now I’m most excited about the fresh way to wear pleated skirts with retro florals!
Vintage floral prints are a thing now, and who would have thought how fresh and modern they look? There’s something so charming with this trend and with a few styling tricks you can make the 70’s-style inspired look cooler than ever.
Lightweight, pleated floral skirts look great with almost any top. Think about combining a pleated skirt with a basic T-shirt, a fitted cardigan, a slouchy sweatshirt, a breezy silk blouse… any top will go. Here, I styled my skirt with a puff sleeve T-shirt in an unexpected pastel lilac color. I chose this sweet hue, as it adds a perfect twist to the muted color palette of the retro skirt. So, my styling tip number one for the vintage floral trend, is to mix colors in a playful way to make the look more fresh and modern.
For a casual and trendy appearance you can complement the look with sneakers. If you prefer a more feminine look, try heeled sandals in bright colors as they will instantly level up your whole look. Think about bright sky blue, candy pink or lime green… these colors will make a perfect contrast for all kinds of retro inspired looks. Of course, if you’re not into colors classic black or a neutral beige is always a safe choice.

Need something to brighten up your mood? Trust me – this happy hue will put a smile on your face.
I totally fell in love with this neon yellow maxi dress. Who would have thought it… I used to wear almost only black and white outfits, nowadays I just love mixing different hues. I feel so much braver and it really feels good to have the courage to wear what I want to wear. My fashion philosophy is to explore, have fun and to not take myself too seriously. Pretty colors and pretty clothes just make me happy.
Summer dressing shouldn’t be challenging, it should be fun!
I think dressing should be easy and stress-free, especially during the summertime when I just want to go out, have fun and enjoy the beauty of summer. Laid-back doesn’t have to mean compromising your personal style, it’s all about creating a balance of comfort and style, being relaxed and pulled together.
So, how to make summer dressing easy peasy? My best advice for the easiest summer dressing is to pick out a one-and-done type of outfit. Nothing is as easy as a long sundress or why not a jumpsuit if you aren’t that much into dresses. Slide on strappy sandals for a feminine touch, sneakers for a casual style and platform sandals for the coolest look. When it comes to choosing a bag to make the look polished, a basket bag is always the perfect choice for elevated and classic summer style.
What are your must-have summer staples? Hoping you all have a lovely week!
Make the most of your PJs and turn them from bedtime to street style.
Easy, fun, effortless, chic… these are the keywords that came to my mind when I thought about pajamas as outwear. They’re so easy to style and dress up to perfection with no effort. I like to go all out and wear the whole suit for a real fashionable look. But if you think that’s not your way to rock the PJ’s, you can wear them as separates easily by pairing your pajama top with jeans or your pajama trousers with a simple top.
The key to creating a fashion statement out of your nighttime wear and not end up looking like you are sleepwalking is to dress it up. Add high heels or strap sandals, a nice bag and fancy jewellery and you are good to go.
I styled my PJs with the pops of pink to elevate the outfit from cozy nightwear to chic daywear. I’m really into daytime pajamas for a cool option to add into a summertime wardrobe as they are easy to wear, very fun to dress up and look effortlessly stylish.
I wish you a wonderful Friday and a lovely weekend! Hope you are doing fine and enjoying the summertime!
Summer season is here and that means we need to make some changes in our wardrobes. I really like to make hot weather dressing easy and love pieces that I know I will be wearing many summers to come. Bright colored things always light up my heart and I think there isn’t better time to embrace colors than summertime. Vibrant colors brightens up your look, makes you look younger and gets your skin glowing. Who doesn’t want that?
This pear green blouse & skirt are easy to throw on and go anywhere. Plus they look fabulous with zero effort. I like to use contrast to create standout outfits, so I paired the green with it’s complimentary color: red. Instead of classic red I chose a candy pink shade, which adds playfulness and freshness to whole outfit. Minty earrings are the final touch to this look. Combining beautiful, unexpected colors together always make the outfit more interesting and personal. With this outfit I’m ready for cozy summer chilling. Can’t wait that!
Happy Friday and happy weekend to you!

Hello and happy Tuesday! When it comes to fashion, usually the best pieces are the ones that are easy to style in countless ways. Like a black blazer that can be paired with almost anything. One of my newest obsession is this very light beige satin skirt, that makes any outfit look instantly polished, just like a blazer does as well. This is why they make such a perfect look when paired together. During this stay-at-home time, I’ve also noticed that the satin skirt is a wonderful mood boosting option for home office look, it’s so feminine, but also cozy to wear which is why I love it so much.
To achieve elegance, I made the finishing touch in this look with black leather accessories with golden embellishments. Using a belt to mark your waistline makes the look even more feminine and polished. White lace top is an oldie, that I’ve bought in 2008, just found it again from my wardrobe and thought it’s quite a beauty.
I hope you’re all doing fine and enjoying the lovely springtime!
