Peach Off the Shoulder Dress

Fashion, Style
Off the shoulder peach dress chic style

Yay! We made it to Thursday, friends, that is Friday eve! I am particularly excited about this weekend because we will be heading to Turkey first and then to Italy on Monday! It is a wonderful time for Capri, a beautiful idyllic island in Italy. I am packing lots of off the shoulder and one shoulder tops and summer dresses and can’t wait to shoot pictures in different cities and countries!

In the meantime, I would like to talk about this peach off the shoulder dress. Looking for a girly summer dress for summer parties or date nights? This dress is just what you might be looking for! It has the cutest ruffled sleeves, for starters! Needless to say, it is off the shoulder. I still can’t get enough of these off the shoulder tops and dresses!

I found this dress online while I was searching for a nice dress for a birthday party on a tiki boat last week. I fell in love with the color and the shape of the dress, so flattering and elegant. Also, being so breezy and summery, it was the perfect dress for a party on the boat.

Another thing I like about this dress is the material. It is so soft and flowy. The length is also perfect to move comfortably. It can also be dressed down with flat sandals, which would look so boho chic.

I styled this dress with cognac mules, which is my favorite color of all times. To add some color, I paired my look with drop earrings from Baublebar.

Hope you like my post and I would love to hear your thoughts on your favorite off the shoulder summer dresses!

Vintage Paisley Ruffle Top with Bell Sleeves

Fashion, Style

All I can say about this top is AMAZING! I found it online while just browsing for other things (of course I bought the thing I wasn’t looking for!) and when it arrived, I tried it on and it has the softest fabric! And the print is to die for! I have always loved paisley print, but I never had a top with that print. Also, the print adds some vintage vibes to the top, which makes it more chic.

I really like the ruffle detail on the front and the bell sleeves, too. It definitely adds movement to the shirt as you can see in my pictures with the aid of the wind! And the best is yet to come: I just found out that it went on SALE before writing up this blog post! For the reference, I am wearing a US 4 (small) in this top and it is a little loose so I can wear it off shoulder too.

I completed the look with cut off shorts, my favorite studded belt and studded sandals which go perfectly with the edgy style I was trying to pull off. This top would be perfect with maxi skirts and distressed jeans.

The Little Red Dress

Fashion, Style
Red ruffle mini dress

Though the title of this post sounds like a short story, it actually describes the red cold shoulder dress I just got my hands on. I am not usually a red dress person, but red may have become the new black ladies!

I have a strong tendency to purchase any dress or top off the shoulder, one shoulder or anything shoulder these days. I love the fact that this dress shows both shoulders and has a nice strap detailing on the front. Plus, the ruffles add movement to the dress, which is one of the things I just can’t say no this season. What’s best about this dress is that it is linen. I always check the fabric before I purchase it and linen is one the healthy fabrics on top of my list.

The ruffle detail on the hem of the skirt complements the one on the chest very elegantly. Although the ruffle on the hem makes it look more like a casual dress, the color and the cold shoulder detail of the dress immediately deny that. It is true that this little red dress can be worn day or night, dressed up or down. I chose to style it with metallic kitten heels and a metallic bag. This look might be perfect for a date night as well as a cocktail or a summer party.

Speaking of which, I am so ready to leave for Europe next week! Can’t wait for the summer travels to start! What are your travel plans for the summer?

Pleated Midi Skirt in Postcard Print

Fashion, Style

If you ask me, summer is all about light dresses and skirts. I love dressing in those and not taking anything extra to wear at nights.

This look is perfect for summer days or nights. I was looking for a pleated skirt for a while and there are a lot of similar styles out there, but I love this one because it has a very pretty postcard print on it. It reminds me of traveling and going places! I also like the length of the skirt, which is perfect for transitioning from day to night. You can also wear it with both heels and flats.

I wanted this look to be a more feminine style, so I combined it with an off the shoulder cropped top. The off the shoulder scallop top is by a Turkish brand but I found a very similar one online which is on sale!

I intended to wear this skirt in Capri, when we go there for a wedding in June, but I just couldn’t resist. Oh well, I guess I will have to find new looks for our Capri trip. So excited for that!

Eyelet top and Distressed Jeans+Top 5 Eyelet Tops

Fashion, Style
Eyelet top and ripped jeans

I see a lot of tops with eyelet details this season and cannot complain! I have always had a tendency towards eyelet and I am suspecting that it is because of my childhood when my mom used to dress me in something eyelet. I cannot remember what but I remember those little holes on the garment.

That’s why I am investing on this eyelet top from Madewell! Madewell has quite a collection of eyelet trend this season. It’s not just white; you can find mustard or pink tops and dresses with eyelet detail. This top is especially speaking to my heart because of its ruffles. Even though it is not a V-neck or boat neck, it is pretty comfortable.

These distressed jeans have become one of the staples of my wardrobe ever since I purchased them. They have the perfect tone of blue, which goes with almost every color. So I have been wearing it with different tops, from off the shoulder ones to ruffled tops and simple tees. I guess when people say you can never have enough ripped jeans, they are right!

Below I have also posted my top 5 eyelet tops and some of them are on SALE! Happy shopping!

Thanks for reading!

Love,
