Hard to believe, but it's September. For most of you, it's a month that comes with a lot of changes in your career, school or even relationships. Reason enough to find the perfect jeans to wear this season. Let me introduce you to the Mom jean. Relax! You don't need to be a mom to wear it, but I'm sure you want to know how exactly you can style it. Let me give you a couple of reasons why I think those early 1990s pants are going to last for a while in your closet.
Now that you have those simple and easy tricks for your mom jean, I think you are ready like me to start September on a positive note.
Wedding seasons are always pleasant, but sometimes there comes a lot of pressure with it. Especially when you are attending a wedding as a guest and, you want to find the right outfit. Recently, I attended a wedding and opted for two different looks. For my day look, I went for a soft romantic pink cape jumpsuit which could be worn as a night outfit too. I just wanted it as a day outfit. I kept my make up very simple using nude tones for my eyes, nails and lips. To have a more elegant feeling I picked out a rose hat. This is a simple way you can dress for a wedding during the day. Luckily the sun came just at the right moment. It even got me more excited for my second look.
In the evening I wanted more glamour. I decided to go for a pine green pleated split dress which was very comfortable to wear. Despite the fact that I don't really like green, I must admit that this dress is elegant when worn gracefully.
For my hair, I tend to change a lot. This time I asked my hairdresser for a more lighter coloration of the brown I had. To be honest, I didn't know what to expect. It turned out to be gold, dark blond. I really love the result.
Good morning guys. It's the first day of August and, it's still getting warmer. I love white because of its versatility. Bright colors always work. As I want to break a bit the tones, I opted for a silver clutch bag. It matches with my earrings and bracelets. The choice of a neutral color such as this accentuates the color of my hair. As you can see, my hair is getting more of brown tones. To bring its brilliance and softness, I knew that white would be ultimate.
What a joy to be back this month! I am extremely delighted to share with you my newest style. And It's already three years since a started my blog No Limits for Fashion (screaming of joy). Read the full story here. But let's get back to the essence of this blog post. The reason why you probably here is you wondering how to enhance your look by adding pieces of prints. In particularly African prints. I want to share a couple of things I think that can bring your outfit to something great.
What you need to know when choosing a print is not to be scared to take risks. That might be in the way you choose colors or the way your prints are made. Be original and not boring! Know what you want. If you like yellow than go for yellow tones or maybe you prefer hot pink and dark green together. I mean, why not. Go for it.
Keep the flavor
What I love about the African texture is that you are free to do what you want. Isn't that great? I love lace fabrics. So, I decided to incorporate that with the African fabric. I feel this is more me. That's why I think it's very important to stay true to your own style. It's not because you are using African prints that you have to make your style old or boring or be someone else. No to that! Don't lose your flavor. The more you find the style you want, the easier it becomes to love the beauty of your prints.
The fact that those fabrics are stiff makes the texture more unique. It's absolutely perfect for volumes and, its stiffness maintains the shape of the outfit. Chances are the fabric will soften over time but let's embrace its stiffness.
Embrace the process
I know that for some of you that may be a lot. Finding your own style or picking the right fabric requires some efforts but there are a lot of people and stores in our beautiful city Brussels that are specialized for those fabrics. Don't let those little details scare you off. Instead, embrace the process.
