Winter to Spring Outfits: What to Wear in the Beginning of Spring

Don’t know what to wear when the weather is cold in the morning and warm in the afternoon? Or if it’s warm but raining?

It’s easy!

The key is wearing layers on top, so you can adapt your outfit to the weather changes during the day.

So you can start with a blouse or tee, then add a light cardigan or sweater, and a jacket or coat. Scarfs are also awesome for Spring, as long as they aren’t too warm.

When it gets warmer you can put the scarf in your bag, take off the jacket and even the sweater or cardigan!

If it’s raining, go for leather ankle boots or boots (they’re the most comfortable shoes for the rain) and build your outfit from there – think skinny pants, dresses, skirts or shorts.

Here are some ways to wear pants, dresses, skirts and shorts in the beginning of Spring:

Pants

Wear them with closed shoes like pumps or boots and layers on top. Sweaters, sweatshirts, light jackets and short or long cardigans look great.

Do You Feel Good Wearing Sexy Clothes?

beyonce-live-04
Last wednesday I went to Beyonce’s concert with my sister, who was here in Portugal for two weeks (she lives in Dubai).

It was the BEST concert of my life, I loved it, and what I liked the most was the beginning (and that moment when millions of small golden papers fell on us ;) – we were really close to the stage).

You can see it in the video below, or you can read below what appeared written on a giant screen above the stage (it’s part of the Flawless song):

“We teach girls to shrink themselves
To make themselves smaller
We say to girls
‘You can have ambition
But not too much
You should aim to be successful
But not too successful
Otherwise you will threaten the man’
Because I am female
I am expected to aspire to marriage
I am expected to make my life choices
Always keeping in mind that
Marriage is the most important
Now marriage can be a source of
Joy and love and mutual support
But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage
And we don’t teach boys the same?
We raise girls to see each other as competitors
Not for jobs or for accomplishments
Which I think can be a good thing
But for the attention of men
We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings
In the way that boys are
Feminist: the person who believes in the social
Political, and economic equality of the sexes.”

Because I’m super feminist I’m Beyonce’s number two fan now (the first one is my…

Trends: How to Wear Sporty Dresses

Do you like sporty clothes?

I LOVE them, that’s why sporty dresses (and tops, sweaters and sweatshirts) are one of my favorite trends this year.

These sporty dresses look great with ankle boots and are a great transitional piece for Spring. You can wear them with a leather or denim jacket or a simple cardigan.

A statement necklace and bracelets make the look more chic, and balance the sporty vibe of the dress.

What makes a dress sporty?

They are usually loose or large, they may have a sporty print like stripes or numbers and the fabric is casual (think sweatshirts or tees).

Here’s an example from my friend and partner Cristina, she already did an interview about her style for the blog, you can read it here.

How to Dress Up without Looking Older Than Your Real Age

This is a great question I got from Adilah!

If you feel that you look older than your real age when you dress up,
you’re probably doing one of these things (or both of them):

  • Wearing a very classic outfit
  • Wearing out of fashion pieces

Wearing a very classic outfit

When you think about dressing up, you may tend to think about classic pieces – a white shirt, pencil skirt, straight leg trousers, and so on.

The problem is that, although classic pieces are great, when you only wear classic pieces from head to toe, you’ll probably look older, too formal and let’s face it, a little boring.

Because classic pieces are our grandmothers favorite pieces ;) and they’re very discreet.

How can you avoid looking older?

Here’s an easy way: replace one or two classic pieces for trendy or more casual ones and/or add a different or statement accessory to your outfit, that shows more of your personality.

You’ll instantly look more fashionable, stylish and younger!

For example, you can replace one classic piece for a similar piece in a bold color, or for a more fashionable piece: instead of a black pencil skirt wear a red one, or a mini black skirt; instead of a chic blazer wear an edgier leather jacket.

For accessories you don’t need to add too much – you can go for big earrings or bold shoes but you can also choose an elegant, beautiful ring or necklace.

In the image below you can see that the outfit on the right, although it also has a lot…
