4 Beginning of the Spring Outfits

The spring is finally just around the corner and if you can’t wait to wear cute spring outfits, here are 4 suggestions to help you transit from winter to spring in a cute and fun way!

For me, the change of the season is a great time to wear long sleeve dresses that are lighter and in prints that say spring get here, please!

So get inspired to plan your next outfits with a touch of spring to cheer up our days!

 

• Beginning of the Spring: 4 Outfits

My first getting into the spring outfit is this pink leopard dress with long sleeves! The pink gives this leopard print a touch of femininity and also some freshness, that make this long sleeve dress perfect to start your spring days in style! Ruched with a frill hem, it’s fashionable and super girly, just the way I like a dress!

I love how the pink print makes this dress even more feminine, instead of the traditional leopard colours, the perfect way to start a new spring season! And to make this look even more feminine, I styled it with some girly accessories, like a pink headband and a pink lipstick.

Since I can never get tired of a dress, my second choice of spring outfit is this tan coloured day dress, because I can’t wait to get tanned for the summer! 😂 And a long sleeve dress is perfect for this change of season, while it’s not warm yet, but no longer that cold.

A dress like this is perfect for the daily life, you can wear it as a casual outfit, being able to be comfortable at the same time as stylish. It’s a very versatile dress, you can wear it with a pair of high heels, flat shoes or even with a pair of boots for the transitioning outfit.

And to make this outfit more fashionable, I styled it with some jewellery made with edge wood pieces, that make this outfit super cool. And for the hair, I gave it a little touch with a half up do hairstyle, wearing a cute hair accessory to make it more dress up:

To follow the spring mood, I’ve picked this cute pink puff sleeve top in lace, that’s sheer and make it a perfect beginning of the spring piece to start the season in style with a very feminine outfit. I styled it with a pair of white trousers to get that spring vibe of pastel colours, that I love to wear during the sunny days or also to make any cloudy day a better day, and that’s definitely what we need now! Good outfits and good vibes!

Being home a lot lately here in Italy, it doesn’t mean you should be in pyjamas the whole day or wear only loungewear clothes, there are days I just love to dress up and cheer my mood up too. Actually, this is a great advice to have a healthy routine and get dressed as normal everyday, just to keep your vibes higher and you feeling better during these days.

 

For all the shirt lovers out there, nothing like a polka dot shirt to make your outfit more fun! And this long sleeve shirt in organza definitely brings a special touch to your outfit. You can style it in so many different ways, for example, you can wear it with a pair of trousers or even with a skirt or shorts.

For this outfit, I styled this blue organza shirt with a black leather skirt for a sexy and elegant outfit:

To bring more fun and more fashion into this outfit, I did a little half bun on my hair, that makes this look much cooler. It’s such a cool, easy and quick hairstyle to do during the day to change your look.

3 Night Out Outfits to Rock!

If you’re like me and you love to go out, be it a party, a dinner or a date night, here are 3 night out outfits to inspire you in shining through the night!

There’s no question that a black outfit is the king of the night-out-outfits, and to inspire you in choosing your next outfit, I’ve styled 3 different night out outfits in black for this season. By now, you all know how I love a shinning outfit an it doesn’t matter if it’s with sequins, glitter, metallic fabrics or metallic details, a little shine was never too much.

So let’s get this party started!

 

• 3 Night Out outfits to inspire you:

Velvet Dress: Femme Luxe Finery | Shoes: Surface to Air | Hair accessory: Moliaba

Let’s start with a little black dress, that’s not plain at all! My first night out outfit is this black velvet dress with a metallic shining touch that makes it a perfect choice as a sparkly dress. It’s a great dress for going out to the club or even for a dinner or date night when you pair it with a cosy coat.

You can check more details of this velvety dress on the photo bellow to see how shiny it actually is (I didn’t add any filter at all on the photo and no shining effect was added, it’s really how the dress shines is person):

Since this dress is more in a tight style to the body, I decided to do a soft makeup with brown shades as for the eyeshadows and a pink lipstick, to create a balance between the sexy dress + a cute makeup. Also the hairstyle I did was on the cute side as well.

This his something I love to do, mix a contrast between sexy + cute to create a different outfit.

 

If you prefer a long sleeve dress for the cold weather season, here’s a great option: a bodycon dress, but with a high neck + long sleeves with the right amount of shine! This mini dress also has some shinning metallic details that make this a sparkly dress to rock on a night out!

Add a pair of comfortable high heels and you’re ready to party all night long with this dress!

 

I LOVE dresses, but of course you don’t need a dress to style a night out outfit, you can also do it with a pair of trousers! And since shining  clothes were my inspiration for styling these 3 outfits, I’ve picked a pair of sparkle wide leg trousers for this third outfit option for going out:

Well, the wide leg trousers were definitely the highlight of this outfit because they are super shining also in person, I’d say more shinning in person that it looks like in this photo. Therefore, it’s perfect for a special occasion or as a nice dinner outfit, this outfit will guarantee that you’re dressed to impress. 😉

I was in love with this pair of trousers since the first time I tried it, because it’s so shiny that it creates a beautiful effect for your outfit.

 

Since this pair of trousers were already shinning enough, I styled them with a cropped top in black satin, the perfect touch for an elegant outfit. There was already glitter enough on this bottom part, so the top could be more neutral and basic to create harmony and balance on my outfit.

Lately I’ve been loving crop tops and even the long sleeve tops in a cropped style have been my go to style of tops this fall/winter season! It looks so beautiful and classy when you style a crop top with high waisted trousers or high-waited skirt.

As anything in fashion, there are many different kind of options to explore when styling a night outfit, which is the coolest thing about fashion: we can always play and enjoy many different styles and outfits!

And how do you prefer to style your night out outfits?

Pixi MatteLast Liquid Lip Pleasing Pink Review

I’ve been trying a couple of Pixi liquid lipsticks, which are called MatteLast Liquid Lip and I’ve been loving them all! Lately I just tried the Pleasing Pink liquid lipstick, a beautiful pink shade that I’m loving!

So here’s my review of the Pixi Matte Last Liquid Lip in the colour Pleasing Pink, including how it wears on the lips (swatch) and a video, so you can check how the colour looks in real life and on movement. You will also find a list of ingredients by the end of this post, in case you need to check it for allergies.

• Pixi MatteLast Liquid Lip – Pleasing Pink:

Pixi Pleasing pink lipstick

This is my second time trying Pixi’s liquid lipsticks and I also had loved a previous nude colour I had tried last year, I had already liked the pigmentation and formulation of the previous colour and the same goes for the Pleasing Pink Colour.

This Pixi liquid lipstick dries very matte and it’s very pigmented, meaning that with only one layer of lipstick, you can already have a very rich and vibrant pink colour.

Here you can check how the colour goes on my lips with two different photos of me wearing the Pleasing Pink liquid lip colour:

On the first look, I did a more warm toned makeup look with 2 different shades of red eyeshadow (they are from the Morphe Fall into Frost 35F eyeshadow palette), completing it with the Pleasing Pink Lip colour by Pixi.

 

For this second look instead, I went for some brown shades for my eyes, also from the same palette of the previous look, pairing it with this pink liquid lipstick by Pixi:

You can also check a quick Instagram video on @manuluize, that I posted a couple of days ago, in which I apply the Pleasing Pink MatteLast Liquid Lip by Pixi, so you can check this colour in action:

This colour is really pigmented and it applies very well on the lips. The matte effect will show on the lips as soon as this liquid lipstick is dry.

For the duration of this lipstick, it has a good duration meaning that if you don’t eat anything, it will stay for a long time. When you eat, specially if it’s something oily, you will probably need to re-apply it after eating. Otherwise, for drier foods or a quick snack, the lipstick can have a longer duration, even if you eat something.
