This season I choose red!

Happy Fri-YAY darlings!

As you can see, red has been quite a motif in my last outfits and the one from today is no exception. I must admit this bright color really got to me this season and I love how it makes any look pop, so most likely that I won't stop here :)).
And while I was looking for the perfect red coat for winter, I found this lovely denim jacket which went straight to my shopping cart. I love its retro vibe, the fact that it is oversized, the wonderful shade of red and even the ribbon detail on the right pocket. Not to mention the fact that it arrived (together with the sweater from my previous post) right before we went on our short vacation and it matched the scenery perfectly. Oh and I forgot to tell you that the quality of this jacket is very good and you can find it HERE also on pink or khaki.

Of course I had to style it in a casual outfit since we were surrounded by nature, but I think the jacket really made my outfit stand out and without the pop of red my look would have been just a plain black & white jeans-tee look. My point is, try investing in items which will make more special even the simplest outfit you're wearing. :)

On another matter, among the outfit photos I also inserted some pics from the four-hour cruise we took on the Li River from Guilin to Yangshuo because I also wanted to share with you the beautiful scenery we saw at that time. FYI, some of the pics are white-ish due to the bad air quality there was that morning, whereas my outfit was most likely noticed & remembered by everyone on that boat due to this adorable JACKET. :))

Have a lovely weekend!
Love, A.

The embroidered sweater

Hey loves, so this past weekend we were away again, this time in Guilin, China. This area is famous for its amazing nature and landscapes and we had a great time. The weather was also on our side, meaning it didn't rain at all even if the weather forecast told us something else in advance. We visited the city, we took a cruise and admired the amazing scenery on the Li River up to another city (Yangshuo), where we spent two days. In Yangshuo we rented two bikes and we explored the surroundings with their help after which we also did some bamboo rafting and that was super fun! As you can see, it was more of a trip full of sporty activities, but we enjoyed it to the fullest.
There were also 2 more things which I wanted to see really badly but unfortunately we didn't manage to cross them off the list too: 1. the rice terraces (which were quite far away and we would have needed a day only for this) and 2. the famous fishermen with cormorants (we saw some guys with the birds, but not the real deal). Oh well, maybe next time. :)

On another matter, right before we left I got another package with two amazing items and I could not have been happier as I was able to take them with me, hehe. The first one is this very beautiful embroidered SWEATER which was perfect for our walk in the city on our last day there. Besides its lovely print, the quality of this sweater is very good and I must tell you that it turned many heads around. :) The sleeves are wide but I tied them with the drawstring and made them a bit shorter, it has a high neck and the fabric is perfect for this time of the year. I choose to wear it with a shirt underneath because that's what I do if the sweaters are a bit shorter and I think this little trick emphasized the sweater even better. :) I added a pair of skinny black jeans and my biker boots with pearls but I needed some color too for my accessories and red was the best choice :)

What do you think of this look? How would you wear this sweater?

Love, A.

P.S: If you're wondering why is my bag so swollen,well it's because I was carrying my second lens in it :))

Velvet dress & red details

I am not feeling very inspired today when it comes to writing and that's probably because I haven't been sleeping very well the past two nights. But anyway, I wanted to show you a new look and this one was also shot together with my lovely friend when we were in Germany. Yep, that means almost one month ago, therefore I should start moving with all the pics and outfits I still have to show you and make room for the new ones, right? :D

Did you notice that I didn't wear a dress around here in a long time?! Truth be told, I tend to wear them more often during the warm season than during the cold one. So anyway, I ordered this dress almost a year ago (!) and it was supposed to arrive before us coming to China, but of course it arrived exactly the day after we left so there was no way for me to get my hands on it until this time when we went home. Nonetheless, it was the perfect timing as the weather was also perfect for it and I feel that this dress fits very well this time of the year. It is a velvet dress with a beautiful red & green embroidery to which I added a striped top because I thought it would make the dress stand out more, a red bag to match the floral detail and a pair of black heels. I do feel however that it would look cool & casual with a pair of white Converse. :)

What do you think & how would you wear it?

Hugs, A.
