The Best Piece for the Mid-Season: T-Shirts

What’s the best piece for the mid-season ?

T- shirts!

T-shirts have a lot of advantages:

  • They look great with everything: skirts, pants , more formal or casual clothes
  • You can use then at almost all occasions (except a very formal party or wedding, although some people use them even there…)
  • They are ideal for the cold/hot/cold mid-season weather: in the morning and end of the day, when it’s cold, wear your t-shirts with a light cardigan or jacket (leather, denim, bomber, blazer, etc.) and in the afternoon you can take off your jacket and get comfortable for the warmer weather.

Today I went to Zara Online to search for T- shirts, since I tried going to some Zara stores and I only found one I liked ;)

I looked for simple and basic t-shirts because I know they’re the ones I end up using more – they go well with everything and you don’t get tired of them very easily…

Here are the ones I ordered:

5 Ways (You’re Not Expecting) be Be More Stylish

lestripeI wanted to talk to you about an essential thing to be more stylish, that has nothing to do with cute pieces, knowing what suits you well, or the season trends.

Wanna know what it is?

Knowing yourself!

That’s right, to have more style you need to know yourself. Without that… it’s impossible!

Because when you know yourself and what you like, what makes you feel good and at ease, you can choose the pieces and outfits that give you style.

And your confident attitude will also give you style. This confidence comes being true to yourself.

So here they are …

5 Ways To Be More Stylish (through Knowing Yourself Better)

Write in a notebook the answer to these questions:

  1. What kind of pieces make me feel better? Why?
  2. What pieces make me feel less comfortable? Why?
  3. What pieces make me feel more at ease? Why?
  4. What prevents me from having the style I want? Why?
  5. What I like most about fashion? Why?

To go “deeper”, continue to ask “Why” to every “why” you answer to (5 levels is good) – I don’t know if that’s clear ;)

Good luck to find out more about your style!

In the comments below share your response to one of the questions, I’d love to know your answer :)

Then you’ll love bomber jackets!

  2. If it’s a bulkier bomber use with tighter bottoms.
  3. Try rolling up your sleeves and let the the sleeves of the top show underneath.

Where to Wear a Bomber Jacket

Though it’s a sportier style jacket, some models have a chicer air because of the fabric or the cut, so you can wear it both to an event and day-to-day. For work wear it with classic pieces like slim pants.

It’s still cold, but the weather is getting better! YES :)

Mid-Season is one of my favorite times because you can wear different outfits by layering that help you be comfortable and stylish at the same time.

Here are two essential looks for the mid-season:

1. Dress + Ankle Boots + Leather Jacket

Knee-length or mini dress with black opaque tights (or no tights), ankle boots and a leather jacket .

Answer:
“- They’re supposed to be big, you know nothing about this :) ”

The photos aren’t the best in the world, I used the sun when I was traveling ;)

How to Have Beautiful Skin (an Easy Natural Routine)

Do you want beautiful, radiant skin?

What about an easy, natural routine to get it?

how to have beautiful skinThe base for any makeup is a beautiful skin.

Miracle?

Not so much!

The skin is our biggest organ and, as such, reflects everything that is going on inside our organism: hormones, food habits, stress, physical exercice (or lack of it).

The great secret to a young and healthy skin is to feed ourselves as if our body is a temple.

If we only consume foods rich in constituents which contribute to the youth of the organs (fruits, vegetables) that will reflect in the skin, helping to keep its elasticity.

Moisturize

There are so many products to take care of the skin that some times we don’t really know which ones to use.

I have always been addicted about cosmetics and in the miracles that these delicious bottles promise, until I realized that most of the time, cosmetics are only selling promises.
