Look of the Day – July 9, 2017

I am back in the swing of things with this amazing impromptu photoshoot that my friend partook in; you can find her on Instagram here. Later in the evening we went to the pool where there were some salsa and bachata classes, so I felt like this dress was necessary. I bought it on sale from a store called Nuna Lie, but I am unable to find this particular dress on their site.

I have never been one for colour, but I want this summer to be full of flowy dresses, both floral and not. Being able to feel the air and wind is phenomenal. Also, the colour scheme on this dress is lovely, with pinks and dusty pastels.

I also decided to do something different with my makeup. I do not normally use colours, but since I have a couple of palettes I wanted to give it a try. I used the “En Taupe” palette by Zoeva, mainly the purple and lilac shades.

And to top everything off, here we have a moment where I do not have my resting bitch face on. Surprise. That might be because I am happy as of late.

I hope you enjoyed seeing these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them. Thank you so much for reading.

Basic Wardrobe – Dresses

It has been a long time since I made a post like this, but it is about time I continue with this series. This is the third post of this type, after the one about tops and the one about bottoms.

So let’s get started :

Mini Dresses

I do like mini dresses, unlike mini skirts, but only if they are tight around the bum area, since floaty materials are a no-no for when you go out. I would also only buy mini dresses if the 1)have long sleeves and show some cleavage or 2)have short or no sleeves, but show no cleavage. Also, they are not extremely short and they are only slightly shorter than the midi ones.

The pink one is from Lavish Alice , the army green one is from We Are All , and they have many more colours, almost all of which are great neutral; finally, the black one is from River Island .

Midi Dresses

This length is my favourite for dresses. I think it is so flattering and feminine, especially since I only like body con dresses. You can pair them with flats or converse for a casual look or with heels for work or a party. They are probably my favourite item.

The first one is from Wolf&Badger, and it is a bit more expensive. The grey one is from Glamorous, the black one is from Topshop, at Nordstrom, while the green one is also from Topshop, but it is sold out.

Maxi Dresses

By maxi, I mean any dress that goes from the knees to the floor. I love these dresses and I do not find them too dressy : I would absolutely wear them for a day around town, especially in the summertime, since it is too hot for words, here in Rome.

The black one is from John Lewis, but it is sold out, while the second one is from JluxLabel. The pink one is from Nelly, just like the white one, right here.

Thank you for reading and stay posted for the next ones form this series.
