The back to school outfit and my very simple luminous day makeup

Hello everyone and hello Monday! 😀

Today is the first day of school for some so I thought that posting a back to school outfit would be perfect for today. I loved going to school and I wasn’t a nerd . 😛  I just love new beginnings and seeing my colleagues again . .

Plaid school outfits and Oxford shoes are very much in trend so the outfit inspiration for today will match the trend. 😉  Reddish tones go well on everyone .

Now, going to a luminous day makeup.  I love fresh faces makeup and not too sophisticated for a day look.  Use some highlighter , preferably a liquid one to add more light to your face.

For this look I used a gold eye shadow  for my eyelid and silver eye shadow for the inner corner of the lid.

To add more definition and to make my eyelashes look fuller and darker , using the push lining technique I applied eyeliner directly in the eyelashes bedding , as close to the eyelashes roots as possible . For that you need a flat tip brush.

I curled my eyelashes, applied some mascara, lipstick and ready.

Of course I used foundation and blush .

Voila! 😉

Making my Marsala dress sparkle

Hello everyone! Since it had been decided by the fashion industry that Marsala is the pantone color of 2015 I had to have something on this color. I like this color because it is somehow different and puts a different trend out there.

The dress I am wearing in these pictures is more like a shirt dress but I love the sleeves on it. This is more of a night or party type of wear as I added sparkling elements. The necklace, the clutch, the shoes and the ring.

I wore this dress on my birthday but  in a  more casual style as it was in December and I celebrated  somewhere  outside. I wore it then with Marsala leggings, the same necklace, thigh high black boots  and a rolled sleeved black jacket to highlight the sleeve cut of the dress. 🙂

The dress is a little bit see through and some nice black high waist shorts would look sexy underneath.

Now I only need a place to wear this outfit. 😉

What is your Marsala item with which you will rock this trend?

One long sleeve maxi dress, 4 styles

Hello everyone! 🙂

I was looking for a long sleeve maxi dress for a while. It looks really elegant but versatile at the same time. It is easy to pull off no matter if it is summer or winter , if you want to look elegant or just are in the mood for a sporty style.  In this article I will show you the 4 styles I chose to wear it but of course I will not limit myself as there are many options to wear such dress.  I found this dress in H&M , was on sale and lucky me, they had only one left which happened to be my size.

I will post here my styles for this dress but I am also open to new ideas. 🙂

1. The classic duo. Black and White.  There is not much to say about this , just combine black and white as you will never go wrong.

2. Keep the elegant style but add some color. I went on another classic style and I added red.

3. Mostly black. This is a winter warm type of outfit but still keeps a casual chic type of style. Thick black stockings , black , high heel ankle boots, a long black warm cardigan and a black infinity scarf.

4. The sporty look. You can easily pull this off with a pair of sneakers and a jean jacket.

Which one is your favorite and how do you wear your maxi dress? 🙂

Wearing a suit in a fun way

Hi everyone! 🙂 Hope you all had a great weekend. The article today will be about how to make a pant suit look more relaxed , slightly sporty, colorful but still classy. 🙂

To funk up my suit, I used colorful and cute elements, like a deep pink crop top, high top and high heel (not to high) Nike sneakers in a fuchsia like color, a deep pink purse or a cute laptop bag depending on where you go and what you need to carry.

Suit2

 

I have a high waist pant suit which goes perfectly with a crop top but if you don’t , just use a cute colorful top.

The accessories :

– To match the colorful sporty look I wore  colorful bracelets and a calorie count watch on my wrist.

 

– To match the classy style of the suit I wore a pearl necklace in shades of grey.

Mix it, match it and look original in your pant suit. 😉
