Tick Tack

Lately I became totally obsessed with the masculine style, although I cannot deny that one of my favorite designers was always Stella McCartney, the classic example of masculine chicness. I like when the woman can look seductive not only by wearing short skirts and dresses, but also in masculine clothes. Speaking about this look I decided to create a ''denim on denim'' look but in order to avoid boredom I add some detals like this bow tie made from scarf, ticker and a classic blazer. I don't know why but I prefer to make bow tie from scarfs than to buy one, maybe because the result and the mix of prints turn to be more beautiful than in the classic bow. 

Have a beautiful, sunny Sunday!

Affordable & Chic Fall Decorating Ideas

From the fall leaves changing color around me to the pumpkin patches on the side of the road, Autumn is here! As much as I'd love to make my house look like something out of Martha Stewart, I just don't have the endless free time + money flowing to craft fancy decor.

As i have notice ,this maxi skirt has been worn in a varius ways from many many bloggers and that's why i decided to propound it as a more austere style which can be discerned from the hairstyle and the strictly closed, until the last button, shirt! the colours looks briliant alltogether and they gave a note of mystery and a soft blow of primness. black gold and blue combination... try it!

Chanel tweed jacket

As Karl Lagerfeld has said, “Some things never go out of fashion in the world of fashion: jeans, the white shirt, and the Chanel jacket.” I totally agree it and I'm glad to present my beloved Zara tweed jacket, that obviously can't be compared with a Chanel one, but still has a special role in my wardrobe. What I really like in the classic tweed jacket is that it can be worn in hundred different ways. Here I try a classic with a masculine twist way of wearing and paired it with my warm and soft Benetton sweater, cigarette pants and obviously the classic stiletto. Hope you like it and I promised you to show also other ways of wearing this jacket.

With love,

I was wearing:
Zara jacket
Benetton sweater
Zara pants
Vintage bag
Zara heels

Project Life

I was really excited this week when I was scouring pinterest for some daily inspiration and saw a page from a "Project Life" blogger. I was a hardcore scrapbooker back in the day Jocelyn , our moms & I would have all night scrapbooking nights and I'd spend hours documenting my memories into albums.

Naturally, as college got around, and the real world. and full time jobs, life just got a little more busy and complicated. Since a little kid I've always liked the idea of documenting life to be able to look back on later whether it was my year 2000 time capsule in elementary school or my goofy diaries which are hilarious to read and look back on.

So enough blabber, let me show you some of the inspiration that project lifers have been creating. I love the idea of taking an hour a week to pull together cute pictures from the week whether it was meals I cooked, a cute outfit, or a fun date with the boyfriend.

so many cute printables for your pages via the Kalil Life

the month in review via my scrapbook art

Anyways, I'm feeling totally inspired. Do I really want to have to go on facebook ten years down the road to  look back on my twenties? I think not. I'd much rather have a stylish recollection via my totally awesome soon to be project life book! SO excited to get started. Go HERE to read how to do that.

What's your favorite way to record memories? Photos, scrapbooks, instagram feed?

Farm Fresh: Veggie Picking & Canning

It's harvest time in Wisconsin, tomatoes and peppers are ripe for the picking and ready to get canned into salsas and sauces. My boyfriend's mom snapped some pictures of me in the garden and taught me how to make some of her famous canned salsa! I have a new appreciation for the homemade kind over the store bought now!

I've been really into the idea of buying fresh food, gardening, and canning. There's something that's so rewarding about eating a homemade meal with fresh ingredients. You'll see some more of this in issue #2 of La Petite Fashionista Mag!

These are some books I'm wanting to add to my collection that talk more about the subject, all from my go-to for pretty coffee table books, Anthropologie. (I swear I can't shop there without leaving with a book!)
