Fotografei esse look antes de cortar a franja, mas já estava testando a ideia com o meu aplique. Agora pretendo repetir a produção com o cabelinho novo.

Eu adorei esse look, é leve e divertido. A saia de estrelas da Shein é linda e faz um efeito incrível com essas estrelas metalizadas. Aproveitei a inspiração das estrelas prateadas para usar o cardigan de lurex da Shoulder. Essa peça é maravilhosa e da última vez que estive na loja estava quase esgotada. Dá para entender né? Adoro o brilho discreto e o detalhe de listras no acabamento.

Ah, sim, é um cardigan que usei para dentro da saia, como se fosse uma blusa. Que tal? Adoro essas formas diferentes de usar uma peça. Um simples truque e temos praticamente uma peça nova e inúmeras possibilidades de combinação.

Usei com um coturno que eu amo da Dafiti, super confortável. A bolsa de veludo mantém tudo na cartela cinza e completei com a boina da Forever21 que promete aparecer muito por aqui. Tanto nessa cor quanto a vermelhinha, adorei! Por fim, óculos da ZeroUV e as jóias da Pandora, duas figurinhas carimbadas aqui no look du jour né?

Desde a última vez que estive em SP tinha me apaixonado por essa blusa de renda da Shoulder. Cheguei a experimenta-la, mas na dúvida com tantas peças lindas acabei não trazendo para casa. Mas não me esqueci dela e quando tive oportunidade de ir para POA e passar em outra loja da Shoulder não pensei duas vezes.

E valeu a pena, viu? Ela tem uma cor linda, um rosinha bem suave e meio queimado. Adoro a combinação com o preto que aparece nas alcinhas. E a renda é a coisa mais linda e delicada. Além disso, o detalhe com os ombros de fora e toda a leveza dela, fazem dessa uma peça perfeita para o verão que nos aguarda. Fresquinha e chic!

Como o clima ainda está permitindo usar calças, escolhi essa jeans também da Shoulder. Ainda não tinha experimentado nada com essa modelagem flare mais curtinha, e não é que gostei? É legal experimentar coisas novas e se surpreender com o resultado. Eu curti!

Nos acessórios resolvi sair da minha zona de conforto, geralmente com tudo combinadinho. Usei essa clutch de listras da Renner que promete ser meu novo xodó. É listras, é preto e branco e é linda. Também usei esse óculos redondinho branco e o sapato da Dafiti.

Every new collection from Shoulder is better and I am extremely happy to see the evolution of the brand and to be able to share everything with you. I love arriving at the store and not being able to choose a favorite piece because simply everything is incredible.

Among the highlights, this pleated skirt definitely made my eyes glow when I saw it on the hanger. I love the combination of colors, the beautiful effect it makes when it moves and the length has pleased me more and more.

I’ve tried two or three blouses in this shade of pink that I find super chic. The brand has several pieces in this colour and it is even harder to resist, it is one of my favorite colors. I was between two options and I ended up choosing the one that has a beautiful neckline in the back (I forgot to take pictures!).

In the accessories I chose a super delicate off white sandal with bow details. And the heart shapped bag you already know very well of my recent looks and will still appear much more around here. I also wore this round white glasses from ZeroUV, I love that it’s very big. Finally, I have worn earrings, something that until recently was rare here. I loved this delicate little one from Estela Geromini.

Saia midi branca

Some outfit combinations have no error right? Each one has an infallible formula of wearing certain pieces or colors and feel incredible always. For me today’s look is all about it. It has black and white, has midi skirt, has cute accessories and scarpin.

I’ll start talking about this skirt because I love it when there’s a lot of fabric and make the skirt really round. Also, this fabric is heavier, so it looks gorgeous in movement and is still super comfortable to wear, without fear of any wind making that Marilyn Monroe effect.

As the skirt is really chic because of the length and fabric, I chose to wear with a tshirt to break this idea and make it more casual. This tshirt is so cute!

Now focus on the accessories: what is this heart bag? So beautiful and makes any basic look more fun. I also wore the scarpin I showed in yesterday’s shoe post. It looks incredible, right? It’s different and it’s very comfortable.

Finally, I am varying between hairstyles, hat, anything that gives life to my hair. I’m finding it a little dull in that intermediate length, so I’ve been increasing the look with handkerchiefs like this one.

sapatos Dafiti

While researching some products on Dafiti‘s website I found several beautiful shoes, apparently comfortable and with really good price. I liked this selection so much that I set up a post just to talk about this findings and share with you.

Comfort has been one of my priorities when choosing a shoe, so I gave priority to models with heavier heels. I still have a few shoes like that and I definitely want them to be more in my closet.

But I did not let go of the desire to have incredible and different shoes, so I fell in love with these ones. And this selection could not be more perfect for me, has rosy shoe in satin and with pearls, has vichy with bows and chic scarpin with straps.

This sandal with bows and vichy print is one of my favorites. So be ready to see it on many looks du jour this summer. Besides beautiful, it is really super comfortable, best choice!

And although the post is dedicated to the shoes, I could not avoid to show this heart bag from Santa Lolla. I showed you in the stories and I know you enjoyed it too. I think the red is out of stocj, but the black and beige are still available.

Outro favorito é esse scarpin rosinha com pérolas, mal chegou por aqui e já foi direto para os meus pés. Super delicado e também confortável. Perfeito para aqueles meus looks rosinhas, né?

I have also wore the scarpin tricolor that appears in the first photo and definitely won points for comfort and looks incredible in the look. I’ll show you more later this week. I’ve tried it all and the pink satin shoe and the vichy print shoe have comfortable heels. As soon as I actually wear it for a day I’ll tell you more here, after all the focus is beauty with comfort right?

What about my choices? Any favorite?

Among the most frequently asked questions I get about flat lays are those related to the background of the photos. A lot of people have doubts on how to choose the best option or how to leave it really white or even about variations that can make the photos even more creative.

Currently most of my photos have a white background. In the beginning, as I have shown countless times in the Instagram stories of @coolflatlays, I photographed using the top of a white cabinet. Since then I have tried many other options, from cardboard, EVA, sheet, printed canvas … but I opted for the ceramic tiles.

The reasons are many: practicality, easy to clean, relatively light and easy to carry to other places if you want to work with other light, lots of colors and textures. In addition, I chose square pieces that make it much easier to assemble the photos already in Instagram format.

As I said, I have preferably used white background in the photos, so I chose light ones with only a slight marbled effect. Up here are the two variations that I use most: a square plate with marble effect and another hexagonal with the same texture.

ELIANE: PLACE AC 60X60CM 

Both pieces are from Eliane, here above is the reference of the larger square. This is the most frequent background of my photos. The marbled effect is discreet, but leaves the photos with a more natural air since the white is not so flat. Also, the piece is finished in satin finish, so it does not shine and does not affect the photos.

This ceramic is sold in boxes with 4 units. I shoot small parts and have little space at home, so I currently use only one unit. But if you have space or want to shoot larger compositions with looks or other types of pieces, the 4 units will be perfect for mounting a larger square.

ELIANE: PLACE T-3000 HEX AC 30X30CM

The hexagonal option already comes in smaller pieces, like the one in the first photo of the post. Up here is the reference of this piece that is also from Eliane. And, just like the previous option, it also has satin finish, so it does not shine in the photos.

This piece is sold in boxes with 10 units. For @coolflatlays photos I use 4 units that come together as a puzzle and form a larger square. If you need a larger background just join more pieces.

And if you like flat lays and search for references, you must have seen this hexagonal background in countless photos. It is a great option to vary a little and make the photos more interesting.

DECORTILES: SIXTIES WHITE 30X30CM 

Finally, another option that has also appeared in my photos on @coolflatlays is the Sixties tile from Decortiles. Particularly this is my favorite applied to floors and here is a small spoiler of my future home!

It was the one I used in the photo above, and the variation from Eliane’s hexagonal is small. The Sixties is smooth with no marbled effect and has the most glossy finish. For the photos I prefer Eliane’s Hexagonal, because the space for grouting between the pieces is smaller and more discreet. Just notice how in Sixties you can see the little screen that connects the pieces. It’s a detail, but it makes a difference.

This tiles comes in boxes with 22 units. Similar to Eliane’s Hexagonal, I use only 4 units that together form a square.


As I mentioned in the beginning of the post, one of the advantages of ceramic tiles is the variety of sizes, colors and textures available. Just a quick glance at Eliane and Decortiles’ website for you to realize this (there’s so many wonderful options!).

So if you have space and a lot of creativity you can choose from numerous options of backgrounds for your photos. In the meantime I keep dreaming about having a studio to work with all these options and share it here with you, of course!


Still in doubt? Are you curious about this type of photo? Just leave a comment or check my other posts on the subject!

Shoulder Maré Shoulder Maré Shoulder Maré

With spring closer and the winter days giving a truce, inevitably a summer feeling appears! And today’s outfit is especially dedicated to those summer days.

The photos were taken in a beautiful hotel, the Felissimo Exclusive, in Balneário Camboriú. And we were lucky during our stay with a beautiful day of sunshine and blue skies. The perfect opportunity to debut my SShoulder Maré pantacourt. This is a special Shoulder line dedicated to this lighter and less urban mood, a refreshment for any time of the year.

The pants are a delight, comfortable and full of movement, as the summer looks should be. I wore it with the bikini top and at the end of the day I put the embroidered blouse over it.

The accessories are also all about this weather, embroidered hat from Chapéus25, pineapple bag and sandals from Esdra. And just looking at this pictures already makes me wish that the summer arrives soon, for more days like this! Who is also in the countdown for the next seasons?

Today instead of posting only 1 look I decided to share 3, to show how a single idea or inspiration can yield many different productions.

To start I chose to work on a few points I have adored, flats + polka dots + earthy tones. I noticed that I have several pieces with these characteristics and I decided to try 3 different options and that can inspire many other outfits.

The first look is my favorite: polka dots rompwe and caramel accessories. Seriously, expect to see over and over again this little romper around here. I love color, print, comfort, simply everything in it. In place of my usual accessories in black and white, I opted for this old bag in caramel and Tutu’s flats. What about it?

romper: ShEIN / sunglasses: ZEROUV / Bag: BRECHÓ / flats: Tutu

The second look has shirt overlay and sweater, I love it! The romper print now appears on the details of the collar and cuff of the shirt. The predominant color is caramel, pants and sweater. I find this color super classic and easy to combine, whether in a look in earthy tones or in contrast to other colors.

In the accessories I’m wearing a tricolor mini bag and another great Tutu’s flats. Looks pretty preppy right?

SWEATER: MAKENJI  / shirt: MAKENJI / pants: RENNER / Bag: DAFITI / flats: TUTU

Finally, a look with mix of prints and mini skirt, totally me, right? The polka dots this time appear in details, like the bag and the scarf. I used the striped tshirt to add a mix of prints and make it even more fun.

The caramel skirt gives a break in the monochrome pieces, it’s a basic color combination, but sometimes we forget the simple ones. This time I wore a different flats, but with the same comfort and beauty as ever of Tutu’s shoes.

Did you like the different proposals? Which one is your favorite?
