Honey Mustard


A color I can never get over is ochre/mustard/honey yellow. In summer it matches a beautiful sunset, in autumn it matches the leaves perfectly. It's warm and a nice pop! I think it complements melanin skin so well (almost every color tbh but okay). This dress caught my eye instantly. It's a faux suede fabric, super form fitting and DIVINE. I felt so sexy in this -is that an okay thing to say?- well, you know what, I don't care :)

I am actually not a clubby type of person, but I feel like hitting the club right now in this. What are your plans for the weekend?

Blossom


If there's anything that lifts my mood (apart from new clothes and chocolate of course), it's watching all these beautiful trees with pink blossoms. They're so beautiful to look at. To me, they say a new season has started. Sad part is that they usually don't last that long, and before you know it, the whole pavement is filled with pink petals. On the brighter side, it also means summer is coming... :)

Black and Gold.



I told you, stripes are sorta my thing now :) With the weather being perfect and all, black may not be the color some people have in mind for the season. To me, it's timeless and "season-less". Especially when you use flowy, see through fabrics it looks stylish and classy or it could be the perfect cover up for something colorful underneath. I love the combination with gold, gives it a more "royal" feel.

Summer Weekend


This weekend's weather was perfect! It felt like summer. That calls for an opportunity to bring back some leg action and while we're at it, let's bring out the shoulders too :) I've noticed that I've been rocking lots of stripes lately (completely unintentional), no matter the color or pattern. Stripes are where it's at with me, I guess.

Code Red.


Red has completely won me over. Apart from my lipsticks, red was a color I've avoided in my wardrobe for so long, until recently. Relatable? Maybe my taste is changing as I'm getting older, but for some reason red is usually now the first color that catches my eye when an item of clothing is available in different colors.

Back to Basics


In the closet of a business professional, a pair of black dress pants is a wardrobe staple and a must have. It can be combined endlessly. Basics are so essential to any work wear closet. Being as it may, I actually did not own a single pair! So happy when I stumbled upon these, they are dress pants, but with a sporty twist; no classic zipper and button, but instead a drawstring and an elasticated waist. They are actually just as comfortable as sweat pants too! That's a win to me.

Tweedle Dee


I hope I'm not rejoicing too soon, but the first signs of spring are really starting to show now! I can assure you that I was not freezing when having these pics taken, what a relief! 2018 so far is flying by like crazy; Easter is around the corner, and I thought this would be a pretty Easter Sunday look. This dress has been an oldie that I shared before (and I love it still), but this Chanel like, tweed style coat really completed the look for me. And if you watched my Instagram stories in the last 24 hrs, you would have seen this look matched perfectly with my temporary car ;)

Dolly Dot


Honestly, I can't wait till when I finally can shoot outfits like this without totally freezing my ass off... Apart from that, wearing this cute jumpsuit also made me long for a nice cool drink, fruit and summer music in the background. Maybe a nice festival. I absolute love the print, the sweetheart bustline, the wide leg pants and the small, playful opening in the middle. And... *drumroll*... it has pockets! 😂 Can't get any better than that, don't you agree?

Coat or Dress?


I have an undying love for trench coats. I own a few varieties: satin, velvet, lace etc. They have the power to upgrade a look instantly. I saw this cold shoulder one, and loved it straight away. Haven't figured out if it's a coat, that can also be worn as a dress, or a dress that just looks like a coat. Or both? What do you think?

Red Cable.


Okay, do me a favor and look up the last post before this one... What a major difference in one week! Yesterday we were greeted with snow, ughhhhhh. I can never get used to this, unfortunately. The only thing that makes it better is the fact that I was eyeing this cute red sweater for a while and I at least had a chance to take it out for a few wears before I start melting while wearing it.

Well, at least this way it's never predictable. Next post might be me in a bikini or all wrapped up in a bubble coat!

Pretty Fly


The first warm rays of sun were here this weekend! Even though temperatures are nowhere near summer yet, the amount of hours of daylight and feeling the sun on my skin instantly lifts my mood. This dress was the perfect way to celebrate. Stripes, a combination of vibrant colors, and of course a thigh high slit that has my name all over it. Looking forward to more of these days to come, happy week!

LOUD.


I love to mix comfort with cute. Nowadays, active wear and lounge wear are not only meant for exercise or chilling at home. There are so many variations. I cannot tell you how comfortable this set is, while still looking cute. That's how I like it best.

Polka Dots


I consider myself a woman that wears whatever she loves, whether it's in fashion or not. Having said that, I also love to keep track of current trends and go along with some of them. If you've been paying attention, you might have noticed that polka dots are where it's at at the moment. Dresses, tops, jumpsuits, pants, you name it. While this is not the first time I've posted anything with dots, it has definitely been a while since I sported something of the sort. Checking my archives, 2013 was the last time (oh snap, how long have I been doing this blog thing?!). As I mentioned in an older post of mine, fashion is an ever revolving thing, with specific themes making a "comeback" every now and then. My so called "Circle of Style". I mean, who would ever expect these old style FILA (dad) shoes to be back on the market again? Somebody slap me if you ever see me wearing those... Anyhoo, I think that's why I always have a hard time getting rid of my older clothes, you never know if you may need them anytime soon. For now, this top is definitely a fave, and I foresee this number still being part of my wardrobe a few years from now. Let's see... ;)

Navy Stripes


I would like to start this post by saying kudos to me! While taking this pics, it was freezing y'all. And I think my face held up nicely, don't you think? While writing this, there's actually a thick layer of snow outside... Come on man, did the weather forget it's March already? I need to see signs of spring, beautiful daffodils coming out, baby animals and all that type of stuff. Not this. *Rant over*

Anyhoo, for some reason, I am very much drawn to any piece of clothing with stripes or polkadots, so be prepared to see that more often in the coming weeks/months. This sort of pintstripe, navy blue look is something I love to wear on rotation, you can never go wrong with stripes in my opinion. The top is actually a longer button up shirt dress type of thing, but I wanted to wear it with the pants and decided to make it an off-shoulder look, because once again, anything off-shoulder is hawwwt. Both pieces would like great seperately as well.

Keep me in your prayers while I struggle to shoot some more looks in this winter cold!

Layer Up


I cannot tell you how cold it is right now... I was already looking forward to spring as all of a sudden, temperatures decided to drop. So, back to warmer clothing options I go, time to layer up. As you know, in my book, leopard is always a good idea, so this vest did the job pretty nicely. Add in my "happy shoes" and we have a look! Very suitable for a day at the office, I think.

"SPOSH"


Today I'm mixing comfort with chic. I love the fact that accessories can totally change the outcome of your outfit; you can use them to dress something up or down. So Sporty Spice mixed with Posh Spice it is :)

Lilac.


Ready for the weekend! I am counting down to Spring, and this color is getting me in the mood! I love pastels, and this coat, combined with the pearls is a golden combination. Since I rarely get rid of my things (I know, hoarder in the making. Or maybe I'm beyond saving already?) I quickly remembered that I had the perfect shoes to match. I have not worn them a lot so they still look brand new. See? It's good to save your favorite fashion finds! :)

Draped in Red


As another holiday makes its way to us, I have to dress for the occasion. Love is in the air, obviously, so that means that now, you can charge twice as much for a bouquet of flowers, and three times as much for a single, long stemmed rose, lol. So it seems, love does cost a thing, eh? Well, whatever you decide to do (or pay) to make the day special, I hope you enjoy it to the fullest!

BUSINESS A-THIGH-RE


Happy Friday! It never gets old, being excited for the weekend. Before I take my (well deserved) break though, I have one more look to share for the week. I saw this dress and I GAGGED hunni. It is such a business like dress, but then wait, there's a thigh high split! Me likey. The perfect boss girl look, classy, with a sexy twist. Nothing wrong with showing a little leg, right?

Enjoy your weekend!

Double Take


Life is all about choices. Some are easy, some are hard. Some are #firstworldproblems 😂
Take lil' ole me for example. I just had the hardest time making a selection of pictures. When I shot this outfit the first time, let's just call it "take 1", I was okay with how the pics turned out, but as a blogger, you want to take some extra shots just in case. And so I did: "take 2". When actually reviewing them all later, I was so on the fence on which take to go for. I literally spent hours in my head thinking about it. Girl, really? And in the end, it still got me nowhere. Consider it my personal protest (against my indecisive self, obviously) to stop thinking about it and just putting both up.

After all, there are much more important problems in the world, right? Life's too short for this. Having said that, I'm still curious to see which one you like best. Let me know! :)

Gold Blue(m)


And just like that, we're in February already! To me that just means one month closer to Spring, Summer and hopefully better weather! I'm in dire need of some warm temperatures. Speaking of which, this beautiful, blue duster gives me all the exotic feels. It's a versatile item that can be worn in a very classic way but I decided to spice it up a little by adding a complimentary body chain and distressed jeans. I'm sure this would also do great as a swimwear cover up. Now, where did I leave my gold toned bikini....?

CHILI.


Last one up, in Chili Pepper red! I actually wore this one for Christmas, and got many compliments. I think it would do great for Valentines Day as well. And any other day if you ask me :) Don't save your favorite things for a special day, wear it whenever you want! So now that I showed all colors I bought, let me know which one was your fave!

WHITE.


Soooo. Here's color number three. This one was actually the first color I purchased. So you can say that this is the OG, that sparked my need for the others as well. I love all white looks, but sometimes I like to go for that small pop of color. Nothing says more "pop" than hot pink!

AMBER.


On to color number two! This one had me all types of hyped. I said it once and will continue to say it, mustard, amber and other yellow hues match so beautifully on brown or tanned skin. This color always has me feeling all kinds of special, haha. Perfect for every season too: it's happy for summer, matches perfectly with the colors of the leaves in fall, it's the nice pop of color during winter and screams the start of spring. You can never lose with that! #Teamwinningalways :)

MAUVE.


Mauve is definitely a color that grew on me. It started in the form of matte lipsticks, that gave me a natural, nude look, while still being visible enough to complement the rest of my make-up. I like the subtlety. When I saw this particular dress came in this color, I had to have it. I must add that the shape of this dress won me over so much, that I actually own it in four different colors. Wondering now if I should post the other colors as well... :)

BLK/WHT


I know 2018 just started, but I'm already dubbing this my favorite look of the year. If there's an ever classic combo that I absolutely love, it's black and white. When I stumbled upon this dress that had both I had to make it mine. So imagine my feelings when I found these boots!! Serving some Cruella De Vil realness here! These boots are my new fave, and even though these items look great seperate from each other, my first thought was to combine them in one outfit for now. To add some edginess, I grabbed my old, trusty, still a fave (but heavy AF), Alexander Wang Rocco bag. I love how the look came together. How about you? Would you combine these two items together?

Wallflower


If there is one thing I learned from blogging for as long as I have, it's to not be afraid to stand out. Of course, this self love journey added confidence needed to actually achieve that mindset, but it can still be scary at times. Over the years I feel that my personality really shines through the way I dress. Even though I find it very hard to describe my particular style, other people always know when to dub a piece of clothing "so Dee". One of my favorite motto's is definitely "Life's too short to wear boring clothes", and I try to live by it as much as I can. So even though I'm head to toe covered in flowers with this suit, a wallflower I am certainly not ;)

Winter Leopard


I don't think I will ever grow tired of leopard print. It is here to stay, leopard print is a neutral in my book. When I saw this skirt, I knew it would be cute to pair with some over the knee boots for colder weather. In summer they would look cute with some mules or sandals. I'm sure this one will be a nice staple in my closet. An accessory I keep forgetting about, is a hat. I only wear one on very rarely occassions, and everytime I wear one I promise myself to not forget to wear one more often. On the other hand, since being natural with my hair for over a year now, I need to try if it looks just as nice with my curly hair (and consider if I mind messing up my "do").

Tux Luxe.


Apparently for the last two years, my first outfit post of a the new year is always black. So, let's stick to tradition and do it once again, third time's a charm :) I love tuxedo dresses, but had slight problems finding one that fit the way I wanted it to. Well, my search is finally over! The big pearl buttons are a nice and classy addition. Nothing more needed.
