Staying home Outfits in Style

Well, here we’re again, another day in the house. So I’ve though about picking some outfits for staying  in the house, but that will be also great for going out later this spring.

Because staying at the house the whole time can get a bit (or a lot) boring, specially for who, like my self, is completely alone. So, getting a cute and stylish outfit can definitely cheer up the mood and make the staying home alone a better moment.

 

• 4 Staying home Outfits in Style:

So let’s start with a perfect-to-be-home outfit: a loungewear set! Nothing like a good loungewear set for staying home in a very comfortable outfit, but in an elegant way. So, take notes; nothing like a black lounge wear set to be very chic and classy at home:

Loungewear set: Femme Luxe Finery

Simple and elegant! But the best is that if you need to go out and run some errands, you can style this black loungewear set with some jewellery, comfy flats or even (why not) a pair of comfy high heels. Since I was just relaxing home during the weekend, I didn’t wear any accessories, but accessories would make this set perfect for going out of the house or even if you need to do any video call:

I mean, how would have ever said that the Spring 2020 main trend would be loungewear? Well, that’s definitely a good time to enjoy this style of clothes! Nothing like being cosy in style at home.

 

Another option of outfit that goes very well for staying at home is getting a super cute long sleeve top and match it with a pair of lounger wear trousers. I mean, this top will also look great with a pair of jeans or even with some coloured trousers or a skirt. But, it’s also a great option for a more feminine outfit at home and it will be definitely ready to go out very soon!

This loungewear trousers is part of another loungewear set I showed you before here on the blog, on this Femme Luxe Finery review. And since they are pink with the white detail, it was perfect to make this cute top more casual and comfy for staying home.

For a more casual and relaxed look that’s perfect for the warm days, I styled a white T-shirt with a pair of shorts. And since the white t-shirt was a basic t-shirt, I made a little knot by the bottom and styled it with a necklace in different layers + a cool high bun. All together, I created a super casual, fun and cool outfit:

And I must say I just love this Babe T-shirt!

Style Tip: Whenever you have a basic t-shirt and you want to give it a twist, just make a little knot at the bottom of the t-shirt and you will have a totally cool style!

It wouldn’t be a selection of outfits made by myself if there wasn’t even a little dress on it! Of course you can wear a dress at home, but truth be told, I can’t wait to wear this spring green dress out of the house! It’s a light green silky dress that’s spring-perfect! Light in fabric and in colour.

Green dress for spring

 

This dress gives me so many spring/summer vibes! It’s perfect for a warm day or night out. My style choice was to wear it with a high bun hairstyle (perfect for the warm/hot summer days) and statement earrings + a red lipstick (because a red lipstick is always a good idea).

Green dress for spring

For the shoes, this dress works well with high heels for a more fo a dress up look, or also with a pair of flats sandals or ballerinas.

And I must say, how big was this coincidence that I was wearing a green nail polish at the same day of this green dress?! Actually green is a colour I don’t wear that often (nail polish, makeup or clothes), but I really love this dress’ colour and how it looks non my skin. 💚

Vegan Leather Backpack: Jord Review

A couple of years ago I talked about Jord Watch here on the blog, a super cool brand that designs wood watches and now has launched a vegan leather handbag line! My choice for this outfit was Binca: a super cute and elegant backpack designed with vegan leather by Jord.

And here you can check all details of this beautiful vegan leather backpack and how to wear it on a day trip, like I did on this outfit on a day trip to Verona during the Valentine’s Days. 💕

 

• Jord Binda Backpack review:

Jord packpack
Enjoying a beautiful day on a day trip to Verona, with a very comfortable outfit, but – of course – with a touch of style. 😉

I was never a really backpack kind of girl, but since this kind of bag have been recreated and designed in a more fashion and even in a more luxurious way, I’ve been enjoying a lot this kind of bag over the last months! And my choice of the Binca mini-backpack was the Gold and natural colour by Jord, such a chic piece!

Also, it’s such a neutral colour that you can actually style it in so many ways, be it a daily bag for going to the university, for working or even for a day in the city. It doesn’t have to be just a travel bag, since it works as a bag for so many occasions.

 

Vegan leather packpack

I think it’s important to mention the attitude that JORD has creating a vegan leather handbag line! More specific they use a fabric called Suberhide™, which is considered the world’s most durable luxury fabric made from natural Portuguese cork.

This handbag feels so luxurious, as you can see from my photos, it has absolutely nothing to do with the cork stopper of a bottle of wine, it’s super soft, smooth and elegant!

And Jord made sure that this handbag was sustainable, from the harvest of the material to the final handbag, which is definitely a great thing about this brand and specially about this bag, proving that we can have sustainable pieces on our closet that look and feel great!

 

Jord watch backpack

The Binca by Jord is a mini-backpack with a lot of space to carry whatever you need on your day or for a day trip. My day trip to Verona was actually  a surprise to my boyfriend, who had no idea we were going to the train station to catch a train to Verona, so I needed to pack (and hide) all my travel supplies like my camera, water bottles for two, cable and phone chargers. My Binca handbag was my only confidant. 😂

And it was a great and comfortable bag for the day, it accompanied me during this day trip in which we walked around Verona the whole day visiting the famous spots of the city and following a Romeo & Juliet tour.

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.

Dress: Femme Luxe Finery | Necklace and earrings: Monili di Legno

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!

Top: Femme Luxe Finery | Trousers: Lafort | Headband: Celine

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 glitter dress: 3 Night Out outfits
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):

Velvet Dress: Femme Luxe Finery | Hair accessory: Moliabal Milano | Lipstick: Pleasing Pink by Pixi (review here)

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!

Velvet Dress: Femme Luxe Finery | Earrings: Amaro | Ring: Pietra Coralli

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:

Glitter trousers
Crop top: Femme Luxe Finery | Glitter trousers: Femme Luxe Finery | Headband: Moliabal

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?

4 Valentine’s Day outfits

Well, it’s that time of the year! The Valentine’s Day is coming and have you already thought about your outfit? Here you will find 4 different suggestions of ideas and inspirations for Valentine’s Day outfits, from the romantic gal to the sexy lady.

You all know how much I love dresses and pink, so a pink dress up dress is always a must-have for me! And for the Valentine’s Day, it makes a perfect romantic outfit. In satin and with asymmetric sleeves, it gives a special touch to this dress, making it an elegant dress to stand out on the occasion.

To make this outfit even more fashionable, like an it girl, I decided to pair this pink one shoulder dress with a statement pair of shoes! This lovely pair of high heels are the prefect statement shoes with a pink flower and a Swarovski crystal to make you shine all night!

And since it’s cold outside, a long coat was my choice for this outfit, matching a cream coat with this pink dress to keep this outfit in a pastel color palette, making it a very elegant outfit for a dinner out or also for going out with your friends if you will be celebrating galentines!

PS: At first I wasn’t sure I’d enjoy this different-colour-of nails-trend, but actually, I’ve been enjoying playing with nail polish colours and wearing each nail in a different color, but matching them all in similar or harmonic style, like I did here with nude + pink + violet nail colours.

 

You can mainly go one of the two way for a Valentine’s Day outfit: romantic or sexy, the choice is yours according to your personal style and what are your plans for the day!

If you prefer more of a sexy outfit for this Valentine’s Day, this next outfit is for you! Think about fake leather + animal print! You can’t get sexier than this! 😉

So here’s option number 02: a fake leather mesh sleeve dress with animal print sleeves (leopard print), a mix of elegance and sexiness in the same outfit! Pair it with high heels and you’re ready to rock and look even more flawless for your special date night!

To me, everything says sexy in this dress: the bodycon shape, the fake leather fabric and the leopard sleeves details, but as I always do when I go for a sexy outfit, it is sexy, but also still very elegant, because that’s how I prefer to dress when I go for a sexy outfit.

 

If your Valentine’s Day plans are during the day or if you believe something a little more casual would fit better your plans or your mood, get cosy with a jumper dress. To transform it in a more sophisticated look, I added a fake fur gilet + a statement fake leather belt to this dress and voilà! You have such a beautiful and more fashionable outfit!

But if you want another sexy outfit option, I have another Valentine’s Day outfit inspiration for you: a crop top in fake leather + organza sleeves matching with black fake leather leggings. Sexy and chic! Since my whole outfit was black, also for this outfit I gave it a little fashion touch wearing it with statement boots in black and gold, which match with my cute backpack in sequins:

So, what will you be wearing for this Valentine’s Day?

From day to Night: 4 outfits

From day wear to a night out! Get inspired with 2 outfits for each time of the day from the daily activities to a special occasion in the winter.

Getting dressed during the winter season can be a challenge, to me, when the sun is out I definitely try to enjoy it! And that’s the case of this first outfit to inspire you on how to wear a co-ord of a cropped top with a skirt in the winter:

Top cropped and skirt: winter outfit

Cor-ord: Femme Luxe Finery | Handbag: Michael Kors | Coat: Dresslily

When you’re wearing a cropped top during the winter, pair it with a very warm coat to keep the cold out when you’re in the open air. A good pair of cosy tights is also great! And a co ord is such a cute way to wear it and it also makes our lives so much easier, we don’t even need to think about how to match the outfit, just get your co-ord, add a coat and you’re ready to go!

And this option is perfect for the sunny days, but with a kind of winter-ish print. It’s such a casual day outfit to rock on a day in a cool style in the city:

Top cropped and skirt outfit for winter

 

But if you’re more into the trousers-kind of outfit today, or should I say leggings outfit with a twist? This winter outfit is for this kind of day! Dusky pink high shine PU leggings in a romantic outfit! Because who said that high shine PU leggings should be chosen only for sexy outfits? You can also go cute with this type of leggings and here’s an outfit to prove it:

Dusty pink High Shine PU legging outfit

 

I love to wear pastel colours during the winter, this type of color is usually more popular during the spring/summer season, but it’s also great for the winter, specially when you’re a bit tired of black and dark colours. And well, let’s face it: a little pink outfit can always brighten our day. 🙂

Top: Shein | Leggings: Femme Luxe Finery | Long coat: Lafort | Sunglasses: Swarovski

The cream coat breaks the sweetness of this look, instead of going completely monochromatic with all items in pink, I decided to go for the cream coat and use shoes.

 

Now it’s time to move on to the night outfits! Are you in the mood for something more basic or sequins all the way?

A traditional fabric that is typical for the cold season is velvet and it’s a trendy fabric again for this year! So if you’re a velvet lover like myself, it’s time to get that new velvet dress for a night out or a dinner. The model I chose is this wine velvet short dress but with a special touch: the chain straps.

Dark red velvet dress

Dress: Femme Luxe Finery | Necklace: MyGloss | Ring: Pietra Coralli

This short dress is a bodycon dress, which makes it sexy for a night out or a date night. Wear it with over the knee boots for a warm outfit in perfect winter style. This was my outfit for this Saturday night at the club for a friend’s birthday.

 

But if you want to party or celebrate in style, sequins are always a great idea! Thinking a little out of the box, instead of a traditional sequin dress, what about a co ord in full sequins? Nothing better than sequins to shine from head to toe!✨

co ord in sequins by Femme Luxe

Pink sequins co ord: Femme Luxe | Earrings: Les Georgettes by Altesse

The best of owning a going out co ord is that you can also wear it separately, for instance matching the sequins top with a basic skirt or even with a pair of jeans, depending on what kind of outfit you’re in the mood for. And let’s talk about the colour of this sequin combo?

The sequins from this outfit are so shinning and beautiful, I’m in love with it! Well, I think that from now you should already know that I LOVE sequins! 😅 And they are never enough! So I really enjoyed choosing a sequin co ord with trousers this time, instead of a dress as I always do.

So what was your favourite winter outfit from this blog post?

Glitter Fashion: the clothes to shine this season!

The Holidays are coming and it’s time to shine! You all know how much I love “shining clothes”, sequins and glitter! So when this time of the year arrives, I’m so happy to wear a lot of glitter and sequins!

From head to toe, I love to shine and the glitter pieces are perfect for it without going “too far”. If you know how to wear glitter clothes, you can wear it even as a work outfit! So take note on my styling tips, because I’ll help you to wear the glitter garments in style!

 

• Glitter Fashion: How to wear it for every occasion

Glitter top with leather leggings

Sliver glitter top: Femme Luxe Finery | Leather Leggings: Femme Luize Finery | Wig: Dresslily | Sunglasses: Adore

If you want to wear a glitter garment during the day or even as a work outfit, you can do it! You just need to pay attention and choose the right piece for this kind of occasion!

Something like this silver long sleeve top can be very versatile and if you wear it with neutral trousers, you are very appropriate even for day outfit! The key is balance. If you choose to wear a shiny top, go basic with your trousers/skirt and accessories for a work/day outfit.

My choice was a pair of fake leather leggings and black boots, keeping the focus of my outfit at the silver glitter top! (Even though let’s say “neutral” wasn’t really my idea, since I was wearing some turquoise hair, it’s a wig).

For a night out, a dinner or something more special, a glitter dress is a great and trendy option to rock a shiny outfit! Like this second outfit option with a silver glitter dress that I’m loving:

Silver glitter dress

And this grey glitter dress is sparkly and completely trendy! As an one shoulder mini dress, it’s the perfect outfit for a party, a night out when you want to shine or even for a dinner out/date night, when you want to avoid the sequins.

The tie give this dress as special touch, making it a not such an usual dress, it’s perfect for when you want to stand out! And you can also play with it and tie it in different ways.

 

To me, it’s impossible to not think about red at this time of the year! With the Holidays coming, I always love to have at least a red dress for the Christmas season and since we are talking about glitter fashion, then, think about a red glitter dress! Sexy, elegant and completely in the mood of the season! That’s how this Christmas party dress is:

Red Christmas midi dress

Red glitter dress: Femme Luxe Finery | Ring: Pietra Coralli | Earrings: Morana

This red glitter halter neck midi dress is perfect for this season! Weather you will be spending the holidays in the cold winter (pair it with a cosy fake fur jacket) of even if you’re going to a summer paradise (like myself this year)! I’ll be spending the Holidays in Brazil this season, running away from the cold winter days in Europe this time. And I’ll be sure to pack this lovely dress with me!

 

Red glitter dress

How not to love this time of the year? Glitter everywhere! 😍

 

If you want just a little touch of glitter and shine, you can go with a basic outfit and add some shiny accessories! Belts, bags or shoes are a great way to dress up your outfit and make it shinier. So here’s how to do it with a black jumper dress:

Black sweater dress Femme Luxe

Black jumper dress: Femme Luxe Finery | Belt: Lafort | Bag: Animale

Something that I love about the fall and winter season: jumpers! I love how cosy and warm they can be and there’s nothing easier than to wear a jumper dress. You can wear it with a pair of tights and you’re ready to go!

A jumper dress is a must have for the cold days and the softer the fabric, the cosier it gets. That’s what I’ve been loving about this black jumper dress from Femme Luxe Finery, it’s so soft and cosy that you want to wear it all the time!

Monday to Friday: 5 Fall outfits to inspire YOU!

Fall is here and the weather is getting colder and colder here in Milan, so today I’ve picked some different fall outfits to inspire you from Monday to Friday! From a casual outfit to a night out in sequins! So you can get fully inspired for this season and be ready to choose your favourite pieces of the season!

 

So starting the week, with a very casual outfit for a casual Monday: a pair of high-waisted jeans with a white bodysuit and you’re ready to go! Monday outfit here we go:

High waisted skinny jeans

Jeans: Femme Luxe Finery | Bodysuit: Femme Luxe Finery | Sandals: Amaro

 

As a Brazilian, I always loved a good pair of jeans! And this pair is a high-waisted one that I’ve been loving, because it’s very flattering and super cute with this denim belt. And to give it a touch of style, the plexiglass shoes give the final touch!

High waisted skinny jeans

 

Let’s move to Tuesday with a pair of checked trousers that’s elegant and it could be a perfect pair of workwear trousers. The checked print has been quite a must-have since the last fall and this year, it won’t be different. In black and white, this print is timeless and it’s a great piece to have in your wardrobe.

Check trousers by Femme Luxe

Being a timeless piece, you will be able to wear it for many seasons and to match it with many different tops of a huge variety of colours.

 

Another trend that I’ve been loving this year is the cropped one! And even for the cold days! I’ve been enjoying this knitted crop top in black that is super cosy and warm. And you can wear it with skirts, trousers, shorts or even with a dress, it’s such a versatile top to have. Here I’m wearing this crop top with a very feminine skirt for a girly outfit:

Thursday is here and a casual outfit with a warm coat is a must have for the cold days!

A camel coat is always welcomed! It’s a neutral colour that goes well with virtually anything! You can match it with denim, with neutral colours or even with colourful outfits, when you need a touch of a neutral piece to complete your outfit.

And when the days get colder, nothing like a long coat to keep us warm! I’m that kind of person that is feeling cold most of the time during the winter, so a long coat is always my favourite kind of fall/winter coat, it can keep you cosy, warm and it’s also very elegant.

 

So now we get to Friday and let’s get ready to party! I’m a big fan of sequins and of going out in sequins! I think a sequin dress is the kind of dress every woman should always have at least one, or two or more… And since I’ve been in a rose gold mood, that was my choice of colour for this sequin dress:

Sequins dress by Femme Luxe

Dress: Femme Luxe Finery | Bracelets: Pesavento

A perfect dress if you’re going to a party or to dance the night out, because it creates such a beautiful movement when you move and dance! Like you can see in the previous photo, that I captured just the little second while I was dancing. (A little behind the scenes secret: I love to listen to music while I’m photographing or filming, so that’s pretty usual that I end up dancing in the middle of a shooting.)

 

Elegant and shiny, that’s how you will look when wearing a sequin dress like this one, that’s perfect for a night out! And this dress is also very sexy, because it’s a backless dress! Well, get ready to rock it and get all eyes on you.  ; )

And here’s another photo of this sequins dress, while I pretend I’m a very serious person that wasn’t dancing until a few minutes ago.

BTW: I’ve been having some fun with colourful nails over the last weeks (that’s why I’m wearing a different colour of nail polish in each nail in the photos), what do you think about this trend? I didn’t like at first, but I’m enjoying it now.

Get Ready for the Fall: 3 Outfits to inspire you

Let’s welcome the fall season with a big smile! I love the fall season and the cosy feeling it brings, when you can start wearing trousers and coats again. For this season, the bodysuits are something I’m sure I’ll be enjoying a lot. Why?

Discover it all on this new outfit article.

Bodysuit and pants: Femme Luxe Finery | Handbag: Michael Kors | Flat shoes: Forever 21 | Bracelete: Amaro

Because I’ve been learning by experience that a bodysuit can be so useful and practical for so many different kind of outfits, specially when you want your top tucked into your trousers or shorts/skirts. I remember wearing tops that would never stay in place when tucked inside the pants, so a bodysuit is a perfect choice for this kind of outfit, because it will stay in place all the time.

Also, a bodysuit like this can be a very versatile piece of clothing, because you can wear it with a very casual outfit, like I did here, but you can also choose to wear it with a more elegant outfit: wear it with a beautiful skirt or with a sequins’ pair of trousers! That’s also something I’ve been loving about owning a bodysuit: One piece can create so many different outfits!

 

Black bodysuit from Femme Luxe

And here I’m wearing another bodysuit on the blog, this time a black one with a mesh top and sleeveless, perfect for the beginning of the fall, when it’s a bit cold in the morning, but warmer during the afternoon. You can wear it with a cosy cardigan or with a leather jacket, like I did for this outfit.

Another item that is always interesting for this season is a pair of military green trousers! They always come back for the fall season, being a great color for this season. And you can pair it with neutral colours like black, white, off white or beige for a classy and timeless look.

 

Talking about white, a long sleeved bodysuit can also be a great must-have piece for this season! It’s easy to wear and what I love the most about this bodysuit is the see through sleeves (I just LOVE this kind of top, that creates a contrast between the long sleeves, but showing some skin).

The see-through sleeves has been one of my favourite trends over the past season and I’m very happy to see this trend to be back here for the next season too.

This white long sleeved bodysuit is also a very versatile piece, proving that a bodysuit could be your best friend this season! Just like the other black bodysuit I was wearing in the previous outfit, this one can also go from a casual look with a pair of high-waisted jeans to a night-out look! Try it with a long skirt or a short sequins’s skirt! You will rock it!

 

My last outfit is for when you want to rock a sexy and elegant outfit! Because a red jumpsuit will always be for the days (or nights) you want to rock the world!

Ok, I’m still loving jumpsuits and this red one shoulder jumpsuit is perfect! I love how it wears and how it can be super sexy, but still, a very elegant outfit. And you all know, that’s my kind of sexy outfit! You may have noticed that I already published a similar jumpsuit here, if so, well done, I actually own the very same jumpsuit in black and when I saw this red one, I was in love and I needed it in my life!

And well, when you choose to wear red, you know you will have all eyes on you. So that’s the perfect look to give you a boost on your self confidence. 😉  And be sure, with a red jumpsuit like this, that’s guaranteed!

Femme Luxe Finery Haul & Review

A couple of weeks ago I wrote that I was in the mood for some jumpsuits (check my jumpsuits for women blog post here), and that was when I met the Femme Luxe website, so this time I’m writing a Femme Luxe Review to help who’s looking for more info on this online store.

So, this time I’ll be showing you what I’ve got from the website. I went for some different kind of clothing: from a white bodysuit to a lounge wear set! Check everything I’ve choose this time and more information about this website.

 

• Femme Luxe Haul Try on & Review:

Femme Luxe Finery review

Like I wrote on my previous post, I was positively surprised with the quality of the clothing from this website and this time I tried more than just jumpsuits. So my choices this time included a polka dot white and black dress, a lounge wear set, a white lace bodysuit (on that very trend style made with lace and some transparency) and a little white jacket.

If you’re wondering if Femme Luxe is a safe website and if it’s real, yes, it is. All four pieces that I had chosen arrived well and they were just like the photos showed on their website. Therefore, the clothes do arrive and from this and from my past experience, all of them were just like pictured on the website.

Bonus point is that the prices are very affordable and the quality of fabric and sewing are fine! So here are my photos showing how the clothes wear and how I styled them:

 

• White Polka Dot Dress:

It’s no surprise that I LOVE DRESSES, right? So, when I saw this asymmetric polka dot dress at Femme Luxe, I was in love! It’s such a cute dress and it’s also perfect for this time of the year, when the weather starts to change a bit. The asymmetric detail of one long sleeve makes it very delicate, but also very fashionable!

Since the dress is super cute, I went for a classy style! Matching it with a white pair of shoes and a white bag, plus some classy big black sunglasses:

• White Lace Bodysuit from Femme Luxe:

If you have Instagram (BTW, if you don’t follow me yet, don’t forget to follow @manuluize for your daily dose of fashion and beauty inspiration), you probably noticed how the lace bodysuit trend took over Insta outfits lately! So there I was in the mood to try it!

So I decided to pick a white lace bodysuit from Femme Luxe this time, to see how I’d feel about it and how to style it. My favourite way to style it is to wear with another layer, like a jacket or even a shirt or a long sleeved top. Plus, add a layered necklace and you will be super trendy!

• White jacket:

White jacket Femme Luxe review

Something that I noted that I was missing for a while on my closet was a white jacket! So when I saw this one, I knew that was it! Something as basic as a white jacket is always useful to match with so many different outfits and being white, it will never go out of style and it can be paired with so many different colours.

Here I styled it with the same lace bodysuit, creating a different outfit. But this jacket will be so versatile to pair with some many pieces, from tank tops to dresses, with shorts, skirts and pants.

 

• Lounge wear set:

I’m one of those people who loves beautiful pyjamas and loungewear, I mean, why wouldn’t you be stylish when you’re inside the house or just running errands, right? So, I felt in love with this lounge wear set with a pair of pants and a cropped top that’s so cute and super lovely:

I actually had thought it would be like a set of sweatpants, but the fabric is actually different, it’s lighter, so it’s perfect even for the not so cold days and for staying in. It’s cute and super comfy, definitely a win-win kind of outfit!

You can wear this set with a pair of sneakers or ballerina flats and you’re ready to leave the house too!

Nothing like a beautiful longe wear set, that if you need to quickly go out, you don’t even have to think that much, makeup and go! 😉
