Comfy…and chic

For me sneakers have always been all about sports; no sneakers with an outfit other than shorts or gym pants. When I moved to Spain last year I brought with me all my fabulous high heels just to have them sit there in my closet because I was walking all day, everyday, everywhere I went.

I needed chic comfortable footwear.

So now I use high heels in specific occasions and on a daily basis I’ve learned that flat shoes go a long way. I see everybody in the city wearing sneakers with jeans, tights and even dresses. When I tried to pull it off, I felt so weird and strange that it didn’t work for me then. The problem was I was trying too hard and the point is to just let it be.

Yes, let it be …comfortable (and chic).

Anatomy of an outfit: relaxed look

You know those girls who look effortlessly chic? They throw anything on and they instantly look gorgeous? Well, I am not one of them. I try to plan my outfits the night before so in the morning I don’t look like a crazy person. But there is something very appealing when you keep your outfit relaxed. So when I saw this picture I thought to myself what a great inspiration it is and I am planning on doing my own version of this outfit.

Meanwhile I will share the alternative version of Olivia Palermo’s outfit for this week’s Fashion Wednesdays.

1) White blazer that goes practically with anything.

2) This basic piece is hidden in every wardrobe.

3) Boyfriend jeans.

4) Neutral flats.

5) With this outfit, I believe any handbag would pair nicely, but my pick would be this one.

6) Cat eye sunglasses.

 

Airport fashion inspiration

There was a time in my life where I took the «traveling comfortably» motto very seriously. My outfits consisted in black sweat pants, Nikes and a black hoodie. I didn’t look bad, I just looked like a I was going to hit the treadmill. So with time I learned I could be nicely dressed and still be comfortable. I try to avoid anything too tight because I know how uncomfortable plane seats are. So I always stick with jeans, white shirt, nice cardigan and ballet flats. If my flight is short I like to wear heels and on longer flights I wear ballet flats, it all depends on your fashion personality and preferences.

Please try to avoid flip-flops. It doesn’t matter if you are going straight to the beach once you land, flip-flops are a no-no unless you are at the pool or at the beach. (Or if you are getting a pedicure and going straight home.)

I always bring a shawl in my carry-on because I am always cold. If my flight is really long I do bring black sweatpants and a black hoodie to change before going to sleep and immediately change to my normal clothes before landing.

Here are some pictures I found that are this week’s «Airport fashion inspiration»:

Sparkle: sequins jacket inspiration

There is something about sparkling sequins that makes you feel glamorous instantly. Personally, I love sequined jackets because they can turn an ordinary outfit into an extraordinary one. Yesterday I was browsing my closet, when I saw my golden sequins jacket and thought that it would be a cool inspiration for this week.

Paired with jeans, black shorts, leggings or a dress, this piece is a must for adding a little sparkle to your outfit.
