A girl should be two things; Classy & Fabulous

I've been thinking to write this post for a long time now, as everyday I get a lot of comments like "“why are YOU so dressed up?”as if wearing something that makes you feel and look great is a strange thing to do...

These type of comments got me thinking about dressing up and what does it really means. 
Since when did it become so unusual to experiment and put an extra effort on what to wear everyday? and mostly since when is anyone not wearing leggings and hoodies breaking a social rule? Personally I wouldn't be caught dead wearing leggings and I leave the hoodies for the gym.

Why should dressing up be reserved only for weekends and special occasions?

I say what if I die during the week? do I want my last outfit to be a total disaster? and besides, looking good gives you a good feeling, so why can't we have that feeling all week? 

 Fashion is a method of self expression 

All Aboard the Nautical Trend!

The nautical trend has revived yet again this Summer! so here are some tips on how to wear this trend...

Stripes: No doubt this is one of the easiest ways how to pull off this trend, Navy and white stripe designs are particularly iconic when it comes to nautical looks. Pair it up with red or white, if it seems a bit to much for you pair a striped top with a denim bottom for a more subtle variation. 

A Red, white and blue colour scheme: As mentioned above white, blue and red make a perfect combination when it come to the Nautical trend. 

If you're wearing a statement nautical design, such as a sailor dress with stripes, decorative anchors and buttons, it is best to pair them up with simple and classy pieces, such as nude shoes, and plain handbags.

Happy Weekend!
