Gentle Autumn Pastels

Gentle Autumn Pastels

  Late November features some of the most interesting changes of the autumn season. Day by day, the vibrant colors of October begin to soften almost imperceptibly. That’s why pastels, which some only consider wearing in the spring, perfectly complement the slow approach of winter. Pastels such as light purple wonderfully harmonize with the delicate, gently […]

A Welcome to the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

A Welcome to the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

  This week I’ve started to become very excited about Christmas. I love Christmas songs (especially those with a happy tune), Christmas movies (I always watch at least these three: “It’s a Wonderful Life”, “Elf”, and “A Christmas Carol”),  Christmas cookies as well as panettone (with a a glass of cold milk, of course), and the excitement […]

A Burgundy Tryout

A Burgundy Tryout

  Before this fall, I’ve never owned any burgundy pieces. I have recently come to cherish this shade and have been trying to create different color combinations with it. Today’s post features a burgundy-gray outfit I wore last weekend while running errands. I wore burgundy flats for comfort while walking from one place to the next (supermarkets, dry-cleaner, etc.); later, I […]

Since I’ve seen so many of you looking fabulous in a pair of boots worn over skinny jeans or with a skirt, I’ve recently started to search for my first ever over-the-knee boots. And the stylish looks you’ve created have inspired me to purchase a new hat representing one of this autumn’s latest fashions; I’ll soon […]

A Piece For All Seasons

A Piece For All Seasons

  Until this year, I’ve only owned two drop-waist dresses. I liked and admired the silhouette on other women but always gravitated towards other styles. Today, I’m excited to share with you a shirtdress that has stolen my heart. I love its straight cut and flowy, wavy skirt. While the colors and print of this dress are ideal for fall, […]

A Colorful Weave Flashback

A Colorful Weave Flashback

When shopping for clothes, I’m always looking for that ‘something special’ that makes them distinctive. Today’s skirt first caught my attention because it reminded me of traditional colorful weaves I’ve seen in some Latin American countries. The delicate fringe and bright fall colors provided the extra incentive I needed to make the purchase. It won’t be very difficult for you to guess which […]

Mustard Crush

Mustard Crush

Mustard — one of this season’s fabulous trending colors that I’m totally sold on right now! Last week,  the temperature dropped so dramatically for a couple of days (fortunately it has warmed up again!) that I needed to break out some of my coziest sweaters, among them this flowy, boxy turtleneck. I paired it with a classic pencil skirt and […]

An Early Milestone

An Early Milestone

Yesterday was my 3rd month blog anniversary (a truly joyful event for me)! As recently as four months ago, I had no idea how to create a blog, wasn’t active on social media, and was somewhat camera shy. In spite of these challenges, my blog has reached the quarter-year mark! As much as I enjoy sharing […]

Perennially in Season

Perennially in Season

  Among basic clothing pieces suitable not only for summer and spring but for the entire year is the classic, button-down white shirt. White shirts are not simply a seasonal trend that appears and disappears but are featured in designers’ collections all year long. Like many women, I have a weakness, inherited from my mother, for […]

Independence Day is this coming Saturday, and many of us are excited to have a long weekend of celebrations and gatherings with friends and relatives. This holiday is among my three favorite (the other two are Christmas and Thanksgiving), because throughout the nation many people get together to engage in spirited, communal activities. For example, […]

Whispering in Pink

Whispering in Pink

What color is more feminine and romantic than soft pink? This color is one of my favorites, and I tend to wear pale pink pieces especially during summer and spring. In spring, this shade of pink reminds me of delicate flowers starting to bloom, especially the magnificent cherry blossoms here in D.C. Wearing this tone makes […]

A City Safari

A City Safari

Shirtdresses are among my summer must-have pieces. I like this style, because you can effortlessly look chic in these dresses and depending on how you accessorize them, you can use them at work, on a casual weekend, at the beach, or even for a party. Lately I have been on the lookout for an earth-tone shirtdress, […]
