In the post about my 30 years (yay, it’s coming!) I told you that we bought our first apartment. It is a dream come true, right? We are so happy and full of plans that I decided to share a little more of this new phase here, because everything is so new and exciting for us!

We live together for almost a year, but we are in a rented apartment and we miss having a house that looks like us. Besides, it is not news that I love shooting and having cool places at home would greatly increase my photographic possibilities. Imagine? Today we do almost all of our photos on the street, but I have enjoyed a lot the few pics I took indoors. So I’m really excited to have a place of our own to produce even more special content!

During this year we searched for many apartments, visited numerous options and finally found one that fit our needs and budget. It is a small one, but with many possibilities and that with some changes will be exactly as we imagine.

Although Thiago is a civil engineer, we are thinking about the design and taking good advantage of the limited space we have, so we felt the need to look for an architect. And that’s the coolest part of the new house, huh? Think of the possibilities, set up each corner in our own way … but how to choose an architect?

This was our first great doubt, because we never made any reforms, we did not have contact with professionals in the area and we had no idea how this service works. Who else?

I want to share with you all the phases of our process and the first step was this: the choice of the architect.

The first thing we thought of was asking for recommendations from professionals to friends and acquaintances. It’s good to hear other people’s experience with these services and list some names. This is what we have done and with a considerable list of professionals from the city at hand we have been researching the work of each one of them.

I started searching the internet for their websites, photos on social networks, stories about projects already done. That way you can perceive a little of the style of each one and I started to filter according to your taste.

Already with some names selected we scheduled a conversation in the office of some professionals to better understand how they work, ask for a budget and explain our goals. I think this is the most important part and it was decisive for us!

This meetings allows you to imagine what the relationship with the architect will be like, after all you have to trust and feel at ease to show your opinions, change what it takes to get a nice result. Anyway, you have to sympathize with the person, it’s a bit of that feeling thing, you know? Inexplicable and only with a conversation personally you can decide this.

It was from that moment that we chose our architect: André Sartor!

In addition to those points I mentioned before (indications, a nice style, etc) he won us at the meetings. For some architects this first contact may be just to talk about the budget, since the client may not come back. With André we made a first meeting to know each other – and already served to confirm that the sympathy and feeling had worked.

But instead of sending us a standard budget via email, we set a second meeting at our apartment so that he could see it, analyze possibilities and such – another opportunity to show more about his service and captivate the client right? Only in a third meeting he gave us a detailed budget already accompanied by an imagined layout for the apartment.

At that moment he showed that laziness, ill-will, and bad mood definitely did not match his job. And all this attention with us was a great differential!

Ah, another important point? Show updated with everything, having social network I think is essential. I do not know if it’s because I work with it, but I had to check his Instagram and Facebook.

Well, now we are finalizing the project! I still can not show details, but I’ll tell you more about these next steps …

Oh, and today’s photos were taken in my current apartment! I improvised a little corner to illustrate the post and already show you a little bit of the mood that I want at our new home. What about?

This time I prepared a special post with 1 piece and 3 monochromatic looks (or almost!). The inspiration came all over from the Gap’s khaki pants. It is a basic model of the brand that I like a lot and I even have 2 other colors – the rosy always appears here in looks du jour.

The color is classic and the modeling also, it works perfectly in casual looks with tshirt and sneakers or chic ones with high heels.

Lately I have loved monochromatic outfits in the most different colors. So I thought of 3 different options in this chart of nudes and earthy tones.

In the first look, I wore a wonderful coat with an ombre effect. It is a half-season piece, perfect for autumn, with shorter sleeve and soft fabric. Works especially well on rainy days! I wore a Gap sweater and high heels.

The second look keeps the color chart, but brings a lot of brightness in the details. A less serious outfit with a sequined top from Shoulder – which I love! This is a good option to wear sequins during the day without any fear, the monochrome look keep it neutral.

But as I think sequins are never too much I also wore Melissa’s glitter sneakers. That could be a chic look with sparkle details and so, but the sneakers keep it casual and cool. Do you like it?

The jacket with medium length and soft wool is also ideal for the season!

Last but not least, a classic: stripes and oxford! In the last option I wore the khaki pants in a boyish-inspired look.

I wore a striped sweater and a leather jacket, this time the jacket appears in a short version, different from the first two outfits. I love the color of this jacket, neutral and chic!

In the accessories my loevely and usual hat, in the nude version, and the leather oxford – one of my favorites. This is so comfortable, beautiful and well done, pity that I went to look for the link and I no longer found the store.

Usually we associate summer and spring with colorful looks, in lighter and more cheerful tones, while autumn and winter are usually linked to more sober colors and neutral tones right? I see this as an invitation to reverse the order of things. You all should try a very colorful winter look, it looks incredible and totally rocks those gray days.

Today’s look is just like this, a colorful and cheerful proposal for autumn. Although I love wearing earthy tones and burgundy at this time of year, I like even more to try other possibilities. So how about wearing a colorful printed dress?

I chose a very cute dress from Pop Up Store, besides the light and colorful print, the shape is really different. With cutouts on the sides and back and many frills this dress can easily be worn in the spring or fall.

As the weather has oscillated quite a bit here I chose a 3/4 sleeve coat also full of color. What about betting on a warm piece in a different color like this rose-colored coat?

For the accessories I chose shades of gray for both the purse and the shoes, a neutral touch in the middle of so many colors. But notice the details: I used a keychain with pompoms to keep the inspiration colorful and fun of the look.

I’m finding it incredible how this season change made me want new colors. A mustard look blends perfectly with autumn right? I confess I do not like the orange color for clothes and accessories, but I love earthy tones. This mustard is in the middle between the two.

I have this jacket for some time, but as this is a color unusual for me I end up not wearing it that much. As my goal is to get out of that routine of always wearing the same pieces and giving a chance to something new, I bet on it for that outfit. It’s good to get out of my comfort zone!

The skirt was one of the pieces needing adjustments and stayed there for years. Yes, years! Finally I am giving life to the pieces that was stopped, some went to my online shop and others went to the seamstress. For being a leather skirt I thought it was worth keeping.

I really wanted to do a monochrome look, but I did not find any blouses in that color. So I used a neutral base with the nude blouse. Same thing with the shoe and the bag, I bet in light and neutral colors to leave the highlight in the skirt and the jacket. Although that’s a little bit different, did you like this color?

Burgundy and Pink

If today the rosy is among my favorite colors, not long ago was the burgundy that dominated my looks, do you remember? I think in recent years this wine shades was my favorite and during the fall and winter it was basically my uniform.

So naturally I have many pieces in this color and especially like mixing them with other shades and colors. For example, this vibrant pink! Kadell’s square bag inspired that look and I was eager to debut it here. It has the option of longer strap, but for a ladylike look I prefer to use the hand strap. I loved both the color and the model of the bag so I made this outfit especially for it.

I wore a fake leather skirt – I love the fact that it has pockets. And a striped blouse with shades of pink, burgundy, black and white. I completed with a burgundy leather jacket that I love, the color is especially beautiful and the model is classic. The look serves as background for the pieces in pink.

Still on the accessories I wore this Lulu’s scarpin that has such a beautiful design with these scalloped details and the rosy glasses from ZeroUV. How about this mix of colors to start the week?

Cozy outfit

I’m enjoying the Easter holiday to get new inspirations, read a book and relax a little. I love staying at home and in this cool autumn weather with rainy days it couldn’t be better.

Today’s look du jour reflects this relaxing feeling of the last days, a comfortable outfit to stay at home. I wore one of my favorite colors, that rosy tone. I even commented on the instagram how the change of my colur hair also led to the change in my choice of colors. With red hair I feel great wearing rosy!

I chose this GAP pants that are kinda like a uniform for me. It’s comfortable and I like it so much that I have in 3 different colors, but this is the one I wear the most. The sweater in a slightly darker tone is made of wool, but lightand cozy. It even has a sheer detail at the shoulders, maybe you noticed it at the photos.

I also made a flat lay inspired by this holiday mood, full of inspirations with the Aimee Song book (I’m still reading and enjoying!). Pandora‘s jewels are another inspiration, always with me. And the Ankit mug is the cutest!

And I also made a flat lay (picture below) especially for Easter with that beautiful dish with the bunny painting that I received a few years ago from Antix. It’s so beautiful, huh? I kept it with great affection and this year inspired me for this flat lay.

A different outfit full of references and inspirations that reflects my current moment. Happy Easter, everyone!

Autumn Monochromatic OutfitAutumn Monochromatic Outfit

I do not know what’s the name of that color, an orange-brown, rust, you know? But I think it’s my favorite color this fall. It matches the season and has appeared in some of my favorite looks as a detail or in head to toe outfit, like today.

I have a pair of pants like this, from Zara, but the tone is a little more like mustard. So in my search for the pants in the ideal tone I found this option at Renner. It’s skinny, high waist and exactly the color I wanted to wear with this Gap wool sweater.

This blazer from a second hand store is just the perfect one for my autumn monocrhomatic outfit. These 3 pieces seem to have been made to each other.

In the accessories the choice could not be another, as my main inspiration comes from this wonderful color. So I chose a round wooden glasses, mini bag and Esdra’s shoes.

Estampa de Estrelas

I can not resist to stars printed pieces, I think it’s so cute! It is almost a classic like the polka dot or stripes, but with a fun touch.

What I liked most about this Shoulder star dress is that the print does not have a regular repeat pattern and the designs look so free. It’s no the usual print and that is great right? Since the temperature is great right now I decided to add a shirt with a black bow underneath, because yes, I am completely addicted to these overlays.

The look were very preppy and so I decided to wear this denim jacket to keep it casual. This black jacket is also from Shoulder and I loved it because it is a bit longer, ideal to wear with dresses like this.

Accessories with Carrano’s over knee boots and a two-tone mini-bag. This look is already on repeat mode because I loved it a lot!
