Gingham Pants

Here is a look that I loved and I intend to repeat many times. I posted an outfit with this pants long time ago, anyone remember? I took advantage of the sunshine weekend to give it a new life and I thought it really looked like Sunday. Comfortable, easy and stylish!

The highlight of the look is all about the pants with this print, gingham, vichy, no matter the name, a classic. Black and white made me go to a monochrome outfit . And that’s what I did. I wore it with this top off the shoulder from Eliza J (love that it has a super thick fabric).

As the proposal was very casual, the best choice was the Tutu’s black and white oxford. It’s brand new, but it looks like I’ve had it for years now. The leather is so soft and this color combination is very charming with the black detail.

Since the look is simple I added some accessories. I wore my cat bag that makes everything looks cute, my classic black hat and lots of Pandora jewelery. Hope you like it! (:

This look could be my uniform during the fall, it brings together several classic details that I love and it’s the kind of outfit that I never get tired to wear.

Starting with this print, right? I wondered if it was pied de poule or a very delicate chess, but I do love the timeless design anyway. In black and white there’s no error. This time I wore the blazer and skirt together, kinda like a suit, but I can imagine so many different outfits for both pieces. Oh, and those pieces are from Pop Up Store.

I confess that I immediately thought about the Clueless film outfit and I totally went into that inspiration, completing the look with the white lace bow shirt.

Accessories also help to compose according to the inspiration, the black boater hat and the over the knee boots give the final touch. And the polka-dot bag is that detail I love, a discreet and fun mix of prints. What about?

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?

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!

The hottest days are always the hardest when it comes to get dressed. With the high temperatures you can’t think too much, no overlays, third piece, which means that you have to keep it simple. But you can keep your style, even wearing only a few pieces.

Yesterday was one of those typical summer days. Moments before the storm, the sensation is even worse. My choice to face the day was this Inspireland dress. Lightweight fabric and straps. But it’s the little details that make it all so charming. Instead of the basic straps, two delicate bows. The shape and this tiny plaid pattern is pure love, right? There’s a kind of vintage thing about it that makes this dress even more charming.

And since the temperature did not allow any other piece of clothing, I wore the accessories in my favor. Remember that in the last post I talked about some new accessories to increase my summer hairstyles (I’m just varying between high bun and ponytail)? So, this headband with a little knot is one of those accessories that makes the look even sweeter. I bought a black and a baby pink one and I am loving it.

Another highlight of the look is the Rosegal bag. For a passionate by mix of prints like me this bag is heaven. Stripes + polka dots: it’s pure love!

Today’s look du jour  is a black outfit but not a basic one, it’s full of details, textures and many stripes. I started to put together this look with this black pieces from Linny. The top with lace detail is simply beautiful. The skirt with lace and pleated fabric take the basic black to another level with all this mix.

As summer is not here yet I had to add a soft coat and I chose to add some stripes, why not? This striped coat is one of my favorites. So I just added my striped clutch cause when it comed to stripes it’s never enough.

 If I can add more stripes of course I will do it, and this shoes is simply the best choice. I had not yet surrendered to flatforms, but this one is sooo me. So expect to see it a lot in the next few outfits, now I have one more striped piece to rock my outfits.

Last week I posted on my Snapchat about this cute Shoulder outfit. I found it exactly like this at the store and I couldn’t change a thing, I love everything about it.

I need to say this black pleated skirt is just the kind of piece you’re going to se me wearing a lot in the next few months or years. It’s a basic piece that you can wear with everything, from a rocker to a preppy look. And it’s not a boring piece, the pleated is just great and the eyelets are and awesome detail.

The bulldog shirt is so cute that I don’t need to explain my passion, right? As a dog lover I can’t help every time I see a dog printed piece. And if the piece is a white shirt from Shoulder than you have the perfect one, cause the brand is my favourite when it comes to shirts.

As I already had some preppy pieces I decide it was the right time to wear my lace up shoes from Zara once again. It’s still one of my favourites. The bicolor bag from Macadâmia and the boater hat are just the final touch to my outfit.

The last Shoulder‘s collections were absolutely  perfect for me with lots of b&w mix of prints. And what I love the most about the brand is that every time I go to a store the pieces looks so amazing together that makes me wanna try everything. And that’s heaven when you’re looking for a piece that it’s worth, cause you know you can mix and match with many other pieces.

So this time I fell in love with the striped pieces from Shoulder. The pencil skirt is great, I love the fabric and it fits really well. Of course I had to change the lenght a bit cause I’m short and I feel better this way.

To keep the classic black and white, I choose this cute pineapple tshirt that adds a fun touch to my outfit among the geometric prints. I forgot to take pics of the back of this tshirt, it’s full of stripes. That makes this an awesome tshirt with a mix of prints  ready to wear.

As the days are still a little bit cold I wore a checked print jacket. This way we have one more print on my outfit, yay!
