This is an outfit that I’ve worn many times, more or less exactly the same; Yet none of them I got the chance to photograph it for the blog, so I thought, “hey, I should keep it as a Valentine’s Day outfit”. Well, I decided to wear it sooner than that, as an inspiration for the day, because yes, red is the color of VDay. What I didn’t realize, was that it would snow, and I wouldn’t have counted the days right, so I had to wear it and photograph it a day after it snowed. Yes, the snow melted, but the low temperatures stayed with us. So we took these photos in approximately 5’, before I get hypothermia, and then I got home and changed to something warmer. I never do that, because I like to show you what I actually wear outside, but I figured it isn’t cheating if I’ve worn it so many times before (I can count at least 3-4). So this outfit is purely for inspiration ladies. Have a fabulous Valentine’s Day tomorrow, lovebirds.
I usually don’t change the order of the outfit posts, but I really wanted to show you this one first, before it’s too late. What I mean is that I wore this outfit on Valentine’s Day, so I wanted to show it to you before it was outdated. T. and I decided to spend the night at his place, cooking, eating and watching “About Time”. Unfortunately, he was a bit sick that day, so I cooked something light for him, while I went for my version of a croque madame. I wanted to keep room in my stomach for the fondant cake and the sparkling wine. It was a really romantic and lovely night. How did you spend V-day?
Happy Valentine’s Day lovebirds! It seems that this week is dedicated to red. By now you must have already read my outfit suggestion and my manicure inspiration for today, but if you haven’t, there’s still time to do it now. This is the outfit I wore a few days ago to meet Maria for coffee, and of course we took some outfit photos too. Never missing a chance to help each other out! I had absolutely no idea what to wear, till almost the last minute (what a surprise!), but I was really pleased when I thought of this whole look. It’s the first time, that I’m wearing this black leather skirt, which is actually vintage. I rescued it from a pile of clothes, my aunt was going to donate/throw away, and I’m so glad I did, because I love it, and I’ve been waiting for so long to wear it. It’s no secret I love pencil skirts, but it’s the first leather one I own. I REALLY loved this look, and I think that it would also look great with the shoes I’m wearing in this outfit. Do you like my outfit of the day? Are you celebrating tonight?
If you want a simple, but beautiful manicure, for Valentine’s Day, you don’t have to go to a salon. You can make it yourself at home, easily, as I did mine. This is the 2nd time, I tried a similar manicure. The first one was last February (you can see it here), and I liked it so much that I wanted to do it again, by adding some glitter to the mix. I thought it would be a good idea to show you how I did mine, in case you want to try it too. Unfortunately, I didn’t have someone to take step by step photos, as we did last time with my photo tutorial, but I did the best I could, to photograph the steps myself. Most of the instructions, are written on the photos, but take a look at the captions too. The manicure looks even better if you’re wearing something like this.
Hello lovebirds! Since it’s Valentine’s Day this Friday, I thought I’d start this week, with a bit of inspiration for that day for those of you who will be celebrating. Last year, I stayed away from red and went with something completely different for Valentine’s Day, but this year, I’m thinking of “surrendering” to the clichés by adding some red details to my outfit of the day. It’s actually the exact outfit I wore on New Year’s Eve (but didn’t have the chance to photograph for obvious reasons), except for the tights (I went with black tights on NYE). So this time, I went big on red, and photographed this look for you. I’ll probably wear something different on V-Day, even though I don’t have any specific plans at the moment, but I already know that I’m adding some red on my outfit. Will you be celebrating Valentine’s Day this year? Do you have any plans?
