50+ flared sleeve tops for summer

April 24, 2016


Bell sleeves is one of my favorite trends this spring, it’s so feminine and paris-street-style worthy at the same time! With the right styling (I’m talking cropped mom jeans, midi skirts, overalls) you can look edgy, polished and easily avoid the beaten bohemian vibes, especially since so many brands added flared sleeves to simple white and blue shirts, making them oh so covetable! I have to confess I already got myself a couple of statement sleeve tops but that’s me, whenever I really like something I need a lot of it :)

Here’s a selection of 50+ flared sleeve tops from my favorite online stores, hope you can find something for yourself!

how to wear cropped flares

April 20, 2016


Cropped flares are probably my favorite type of bottoms this spring and I was crazy happy to find these frayed edge ones from Lost Ink on a local website with a 75% discount. I love wearing my cropped flares in two ways: with heels and with sneakers.

Since they’re usually slightly unflattering to the figure, whenever I wear them to a meeting or to dinner, I prefer balancing things out with high heels. I definitely recommend pairing them with a loose top to avoid contrast between the top and the bottom in this case.

I’m also planning to wear these jeans with a pair of crispy white sneakers and a loose cardigan for an effortless look for going shopping or running errands in the city. I deliberately bought them one size larger because I love a looser silhouette, but you can easily go for a fitted style (like these or these H&M ones).

I’m wearing:

Cardigan – Mango
Khaki shirt – Zara
Jeans – Lost Ink
Heels – Asos
Sunnies – ZeroUV
Bag – Milly

stripes & culottes

April 18, 2016


An outfit from a very nasty and cloudy day last week and two good news! First, I got myself a pastel D&G bag that I wanted for a long time and couldn’t find anywhere in this color (in case you’re interested, I have been abusing it over the past couple of weeks on Instagram). Second, I’m really happy when fellow bloggers make it big in the industry, this is the best motivation for me to work harder. I’m wearing a top from IvyRevel, a clothing brand by Swedish babe Kenza Zouiten, which recently went global with the support of H&M and PayPal. What’s unique about IvyRevel is that instead of designing trendy stuff the brand has launched a style lab that will define precisely which items the customers wanna wear and make them in limited quantities. Yay for technology in fashion!

I’m wearing:

Top – Ivyrevel
Culottes – Chicwish (similar here)
Shoes – CMG
Bag – Dolce&Gabbana
Watch – Marc Bale

dusty rose, blushy pink and other season’s must haves

I haven’t published any of my Cravings posts for a while so I thought I’d share with you one of my most recent addictions: dusty rose and blush pink (aka rose gold, nude pink, powdery rose, rose quartz or peachy pink, if there’s even a difference, I’m confused!) It’s these shades of pink we’ve been seeing all over Instagram thanks to certain Kardashian/Jenner personas (that’s officially the first time these surnames are mentioned on this blog!), who I totally blame for setting this fashion trend.

In case you’re wondering, how to wear blush and rose quartz, these shades look especially powerful in shiny textures like satin or simple fitted garments like turtlenecks and bodysuits, also they look amazing paired with light khaki and silver gray hair, if you must go all the way :) I’m definitely surrounding myself with these colors asap, if you’re not a pink person but wanna try, I suggest going for an accessory like a bag or a pair of sneakers in blush or nude pink.

lace up sweatshirt

April 6, 2016


The lace up fan that I am, I see no other choice but to keep wearing this trend throughout 2016, especially since it’s now expanded to so many new kinds of clothing: sweaters, jackets, shirts, you name it! I really loved the idea of keeping it simple with my new crispy white lace up sweatshirt and I haven’t worn sneakers and flares in a while so this is how this outfit was born. I stocked up on some more lace up pieces that I can’t wait to show you, so stay tuned!

I’m wearing:

Lace up sweatshirt – Shein (also love this grey one)
Flares – Baukjen
Sneakers – Zara
Bag – Saint Laurent
Watch – Daniel Wellington
