How to Wear a Lace Skirt (and Change an Outfit Easily)

Do you like lace skirts?

I love them!

When I saw this skirt in Zara, it was love at first sight ;)

It was near a black t-shirt I also bought. But when I tried the skirt with that t-shirt I didn’t like it at all because it was too long. I remembered this Mickey t-shirt and also the sweatshirt that says “There is Nothing but Fashion”.

As for the sneakers, I had already decided to wear the lace skirt with them, when I bought it, because I love to see chic skirts with sneakers (of all kinds).

When Life Gets In The Way (and How to Reframe It)

a1eb9762088d87e7c1d40c871d2cfe53You know when you plan everything and then… it all falls apart?

That’s how it’s been for me the past years.

Or come to think of it, forever probably ;)

Life keeps getting in the way.

How Life Gets in The Way

This time I had everything scheduled – I was going to do one more post each week, post more on social media besides doing the other work I need to do for my business.

But then I realised that my kids are having bad grades. And it’s because I never taught them how to study…

I need to do it now, so things don’t get worse. And start getting better….

So there it is, life getting in the way.

4 Ways to Be Confident (From Last Year’s Struggle)

4-ways-be-confident-2You probably noticed that last year I was a bit MIA.

It was a complicated year for me, with several challenges, not only professional but also personal.

Along the way I discovered this:

We have several life areas, and some are more important to us than others.

When one of your main areas is unbalanced, it’s hard to focus on the others…

And that’s what happened to me. Until I realised that I couldn’t stop caring about my career and work because of my personal life… especially because they are also important areas to me.

You can see more about the life areas (and life’s wheel) on this post.

Now I made this tattoo, inspired by Alexandra from Lovely Pepa who is my favorite fashion blogger.

Note: I love how it turned out and I did it with Vasco at MadFace Art.

You probably already know that one way to get what you want in life is to think like the people you admire and who already do what you’d like to do, so I thought it was a good idea ;)

And when I read this phrase, I thought it’s exactly what I need to remember:

“Change your luck”

Because more and more I noticed that I have to take full responsibility for the current situation of my life, in each moment.

Only I can change my luck, no one else.

And I can change it. I just need to decide, make a plan and act.

Bomber Jacket or Aviator Jacket: Definition

bomber-jacket-definition-and-why-classic8A Bomber jacket (or aviator jacket) is traditionally made of leather and has a fitted or elastic waist, a zippered front, and sometimes a fleece collar.

It’s a piece originally created for pilots.

It became part of the popular culture and fashion.

3 Tips for Styling a Bomber or Aviator Jacket

  1. A bomber/aviator jacket is a masculine piece so wear it with feminine pieces and details for contrast.
  2. It’s a casual piece so try it with chicer ones, for a casual-chic look.
  3. Choose a neutral color (like olive green or black) for your first jacket, to wear it with everything. It’s a great basic for your wardrobe

Nowadays, the bomber and aviator models are different, see how in the photos below:
