Weekly Wardrobe 3: Pre-Christmas

Since Christmas is just around the corner, this week I decided to wear some outfits that have Christmas spirit. I found that it's not too easy when the weather outside is 80 degrees F (27 degrees C) and you don't have any ugly sweaters:)

On Sunday I wore a top with silver snowflakes on it.

Weekly Wardrobe 2

Hey guys… It's the second week that I am trying to get back on blogging track and am continuing to take daily outfit picks for my 'Weekly Wardrobe' posts.

So I am starting with a collage of Sunday's outfit: I wore a backward kimono for a Christmas party with the residents of our building. Sometimes a bare back gives such a cool feeling.

Contradiction of Styles

This time I tried to mix clothing that came from different worlds. 
The classic blue-striped cotton button down dress shirt was borrowed from the sleek and clean look of an up scale male. Now as fashionistas for destroyed and ripped jeans we can pay big money, but the jeans still arrive as though they experienced all nine of Dante's circles of hell.

Murals

If you want to find a cool backdrop for you photos in Honolulu just walk thru Kaka'ako industrial area - it's near Ward Warehouse shopping center - and you can find murals and graffiti art for any taste. During the past five years over a hundred local and international artists worked on Kaka'ako's walls, splashing color and beauty into the neighborhood with the annual Pow! Wow! festival.

One week dresses marathon

Trying to come back to blogger duty. As you probably know from my previous posts, we have packed and moved to Hawaii and now we are trying to set up our life here. I still can't to do photos of my outfits at different angles, but this week at least I tried to take phone pics. I gave myself a challenge and wore only dresses all week.

I'll be back as soon as possible

It's a really busy time for us.We needed to do a lot of things because we are moving to Hawaii. I didn't have the time and opportunity to take any fashion pictures...actually I wore the same t-shirt, shorts and sandals almost all month because we rented our house out and are living in my brother-in-law's basement. Also, most of our stuff was packed and prepared for shipping to Hawaii at any moment.
I don't think I'll be able to do any posting for next month either...but I'll be back as soon as possible.

Greek Goddess

Today I’m honored to be a guest poster with Ada from Elegance & Mammyhood 

Purely by accident, I found this draped dress and I'm pretty sure that the design was inspired by chiton clothing - the oldest Greek garments that have survived for centuries. Greek clothing was very simple yet elegant, and always displayed a spectacular look - with elaborate drapes and pleats at the waistline and below the neckline. Such drapes add a soft touch to the outfit and give a more feminine appearance.
When I tried on this Greek-style dress my first thought was to make a total Greek goddess look. So another ancient Greek element, airy and comfortable gladiator sandals, came in handy. For the complete ancient Greece look I rolled my hair into my headband.

Mixing Blue Prints

I don't know, something touched my heart when I saw this Dolce&Gabbana Pre-Fall 2015-16 in blue and white Mediterranean majolica ceramics print. Isn't it reminiscent of the summer sky and the crystalline waters?


Of course I wanted to get something like this, but their dresses are way above my budget- so I'll just say, "necessity is the mother of invention"? I decided to mix my 'MILLY for Target' top and this summer's forgotten skirt.
What do you think, does this combo work?

Asymmetric Hem Dress

 Because of the silver embroidery detail on the hem this dress is kind of hard to wear in the daytime. Even with simple heels and wedges this dress looks too dressy. So during the day I try to pick shoes that are as different as possible from my formal footwear.

Inspiration Monday: Vest + Boyfriend Jeans

Last time for Inspiration Monday I used the same photo of Kate Hudson, only I wore my vest with a bright pair of jeans. This time (as I promised) I mixed my tweed vest with distressed jeans...and I'm thinking that I love this look even more than the previous look

Day to Night: Black and White

A simple black tee and white jeans can easily be taken from day to night with some easy changes.
A cute pair of sneakers or slip-ons are perfect for some running around.

Floral Dress & Striped Tee

Once more a copycat of Ralph Lauren. This time I was inspired with this photo of girls in floral dresses and striped tees.



 I tried my floral dress with two different colored striped tees and different shoes. I would like to hear which one you like more?

Side-Slit Dress with Wide Pants

I love my relatively new zippered side-slit dress...I mean, is it a dress, a tunic, or both? Now that we’re getting a few chillier days, I took full advantage of unzipping the extra high slit and wearing the dress as a tunic with a pair of wide legs pants. If you want to see how I wore this dress as a dress you can check this post.

Inspiration Monday: Vest + Tank Top

This time for Inspiration Monday I'm going with Kate Hudson in a red vest paired with distressed jeans. This outfit caused a lot of negative comments because her saggy-ass jeans were paired with hot Christian Louboutin ‘Air Chance’ slingback pumps and a sophisticated vest. Most people don't like a mix of luxury polished and trashy items. I don't know what to say; I kind of like the combo of the opposing styles.
Anyway, I was more impressed with the vest and tank top combination.
Since I don't have any bright vests I decided to swap the colors and put on a tweed vest with neon-orange jeans. Next time (because I love the feeling that the vest covering the tank-top gave me...I didn't have to think about the bra straps crawling out of the tee!)
I would like to try a vest + tank top outfit with distressed jeans...and then I will be more confident if a classy vest can go with distressed jeans.

Casual wear: Military Green

My look for today was inspired by one of the biggest spring/summer 2015 trends - Military Green.
As usual, I got most of my influence from Ralph Lauren's 'Military Girls'. His collection presented some uber-killer military and safari vibes through the use of khaki shades and combined them with bright yellow, blue and fuchsia colors. Also, I love how he softened this edgy trend with feminine skirts and loose-fitting pants.

A Folk Sweatshirt

I'm just thinking about starting a new "all summer challenge". We will probably live in Hawaii in September, and when you are moving from a four season state in a solid-summer-all-year-round state you need to find what you actually wear the most. Since the new residence has limited  space I definitely need to cut the amount of my clothes. So this "all summer challenge" will be really hard for me, because I love to keep my old clothes in case I'd like to wear them again one day .
So I planned to start this challenge on June 1, but our weather  today is not very much like summer - it's raining and only 54 degrees...but I started this challenge anyway.

A Little Bohemian

My biggest problem as a fashionista is that I don't have a recognizable style. You know when you follow some bloggers for a long time, you can say this one is always classy and sophisticated, that one is always trendy, another one is always casually stylish, someone else is always boho or retro breezing, etc. I'm always jumping from one style to another because I just can't stand being restricted to one official style...so I make an excuse and call my "undefined" style 'artistic'. If I was a less changeable person and was able to stick to one style I'd probably choose bohemian chic.

LBD

I hope it's not too 'over the top' for a mourning outfit - the little black dress with a flower twist on it.

Inspiration Monday: Striped Skirt

This time for Inspiration Monday January Jones was chosen. Can you say that the outfit of the Mad Men's star looks pretty close to the costumes of her character from the first seasons? I was inspired by her striped midi skirt, although my outfit doesn't have that late 50's or early 60's vibe. Actually, my outfit reminded me of the late 80's, when I wore culottes...now you know my secret - my striped midi skirt just hangs like a skirt, but actually it's wide pants.

Casual Wear: Striped Dress

Mostly I love to wear striped dresses with sneakers (especially this time of year). Since I purchased a new gray-blue, striped, side-zip tee dress and gave away my old black-white I have been in a totally different mood. I thought 'how come I never even tried this sailor inspired dress with boat shoes? Don't they seem made for each other?' So here I went with these two nautical pieces.

Inspiration Monday: Tie a Knot

Here's Kate Hudson for today's Inspiration Monday. She is rocking the knotted shirt with light jeans. 
To be honest, I especially love tied up shirts worn with skirts. For me it's kind of a weird, exposed feeling when keeping the groin area uncovered, especially in light skinny jeans.

Got Fruit?

Fruit-inspired outfit. I love this pineapple tank tee; it's very cute and colorful and reminds me of the Dole Plantation in Hawaii. I think too much fruit is never a problem, so I mixed a pineapple tee and a lemon clutch from the Kate Spade 'When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Limoncello' collection.

Packing for a trip to Hawaii: What’s in my suitcase?

Aloha! I was in Hawaii for the 11 days.

So, my packing list included:
 3 tanks, 1 cami, 3 t-shirts and 2 interesting tops

Day to Night

Today I’m making a Day to Night series. This 'errands running' outfit is easy to transform into a 'night out' outfit. The burgundy color (now it's fashionable to call it 'marsala') is so trendy right now, so I just made a simple, fun outfit playing with this color. With flats this is one of my most comfy outfits.

Inspiration Monday: Printed Top

This time for Inspiration Monday I'm going with Britt Robertson. Actually, we don't have much in common with our outfits... I could say that she has a printed top and I have a printed top, but our tops have completely different prints considering fit and shape.

Crochet Dress and Leather Jacket

A brown leather moto jacket and booties go hand in hand with this crochet dress, don't they?

Cargo vest

The options to pair the cargo vest are endless. It's such a versatile item, you can rock it with a dress, skirt, pants, or shorts. You can put it over a t-shirt or button down, even layer it with wool or a leather jacket.
This is my new favorite outfit; the cargo vest with a striped, light blue button down shirt. I just love this color combination.

Inspiration Monday: Printed Pants

This time for Inspiration Monday Emma Stone was chosen . I had plans to wear this outfit on an upcoming trip to Hawaii.
