SPRING COLORS ft. BONOBOS ♡ [part1]

Hello my loves! I hope that life is treating you amazing this month. I now that I've been MIA for so long, but my schedule has been so overwhelming lately. I can barely find the time to breathe properly so I hope you can excuse my absence. My finals are right around the corner and I just can't wait (#not). 
Anyway, today I wanted to lighten up the mood a little and talk about some spring trends and colors. I teamed up with Bonobos to create some spring His & Hers outfits and share them with you. In case you haven't heard of them, Bonobos.com is the place to visit if you are looking for high quality fashion forward menswear. 
For this project, I was inspired by some men's outfits that they put together and I styled some for the girls myself, based mostly on my favorite color palette for spring. I know that everyone has a different perspective when it comes to spring. During the winter, we all tend to gravitate towards darker colors but, when the weather starts to get warm, we start drifting a bit. 

Some prefer prints, some prefer pastels, some neons and some just like to stick to the good ol' neutrals. Personally, I tend to stick to the neutrals and add a pop of color or mix n' match some prints. It's all about balance in my book. Lucky for me, the trendiest colors this spring are all I have in my closet! I just adore denim, dusty pink and khaki!
The first male outfit is very laid back and I love how they paired the stripes with the bandana and the different hues of blue.
Just peachy ♥
To go with it, I decided to play with denim on denim and add some pops of red. That could easily work with blush as well, if you're not feeling particularly bold. I like how we stick to the classic blue and red but, also, how it's fashionable and not boring at all. As for the embellished denim, you know it holds a special place in my heart. Also, how awesome are those mules?
Let's be honest here. Is there anything more basic atm than a khaki bomber? Probably not. But it's just so versatile and it looks so good. We're not used to seeing it paired with blue, so that's a nice change and I prefer the patterned bermuda shorts from the plain old denim.
Ever just the same...
Don't you just love the jeans on the hers outfit? The cut and the hem are so 2017 and the butterflies make them so much more interesting and unique. I feel that it's such a cute outfit that you can wear to so many different occasions. It's stylish yet laid back and many different girls can pull it off.
This guy is all about mixing the light neutrals and I love it. It takes guts to wear such light colors. Thus, I think he wouldn't mind dating a girl who isn't afraid to take risks. 
Just like you ;)
That floral ensemble is to die for. It's very airy and bohemian and I like how the black tones it down and goes so nicely with the sandals. I could easily see these two lovebirds strolling around in the city!

So, this is the first part of the looks I put together. I love them all equally and I would easily wear them any day. I think they incorporate many of the styles and the colors I've been loving lately.

VALENTINE'S DAY ft. BONOBOS ♡

Hello my darlings! I'm back! I finally finished with my finals and I couldn't be happier. I am so ready to relax and have fun and see all my friends again. Let's just ignore the fact that I've been working all day today because...fashion :P
Anyway, today I wanted to do a Valentine's Day post for all my lovebirds out there. Personally, I don't celebrate it a)because I'm single and dating and b)because I feel that, if you are in love, every day is special. It doesn't matter though, because I love creating sets and articles about this "holiday".
This time, I teamed up with Bonobos again, to create two looks for you. If you've been with me for a while, you might remember our previous collaboration. If not, you can check it out here. Bonobos, basically offers high quality menswear, and I can guarantee that you'll look like a million bucks if you get your clothes from their website bonobos.com I absolutely love their chic and polished aesthetic and I wish more men would dress like that. Well, a girl can dream ;) 
If you're looking to buy menswear for yourself or a special someone, I would highly recommend you to check out their website and especially their pant's page.
The first look that I created (header) is very bold yet classy. This suit is what black tie dreams are made of and I just adore how lovely it looks with the deep red clothes. This has to be my favorite shade of red-almost bordeaux-and I think it's so sexy and sultry, especially paired with the black sandals. I love red on red and, since it can get pretty intense, I would suggest keeping everything else (including the makeup) pretty minimal. This look is proof that you can be sexy and feminine without showing too much skin or wearing tight clothes. Lastly, let's just admit that if we saw this couple out on Valentine's Day, we'd be pretty darn jealous XD

Bonobos: valentine's day ♥
The second look is a bit more casual yet still very polished and glam. I really like the laid-back vibe of the suit and how well it plays with the pink candy tones. I feel like this is fit for a younger couple who wanted to dress up for the special occasion, hence the diamond choker. The pumps are simply to die for ♥ and the makeup set from Kylie's collections is just perfect for the look!

So, what do you guys think? Which one of these looks is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below ♥

BONOBOS

Hi guys! How are you? I hope that your week was great and that you are all in an amazing mood for the weekend!
Today's post is the very first of it's kind on my blog. I know you guessed it from the header. It's men's fashion! I never actually thought of styling mens clothes for my blog, or for any other occasion for that matter. Ever since I was a little girl my male barbie dolls always had one single outfit that never changed, while my female dolls had more clothes than I did. So, I saw a challenge. And, I'm telling you, it was so fun!
The truth is I always find myself thinking of things that men I see on the street could wear to look great. But apart from the menswear inspired pieces that I occasionally add to my style, I only visit the men's section to buy presents for my friends.

For those of you who haven't heard of them, Bonobos is a deluxe clothing brand designed for all the men seeking perfection(they all do we know that ^*). They focus on delivering great fit, high energy and superb customer experience. Bonobos was named "One of America’s Hottest Brands" by Advertising Age, "Best Men’s Pants" by New York Magazine, one of Inc. Magazine’s "20 Awesome Facebook Pages" and was awarded Crain’s "Best Places to Work in New York City". Pretty great huh?

The request was to style some of their men's suits and pair them with items of my choice. Personally I think that men in suits are truly irresistible and I'm sure you do too after watching the 50 Shades of Grey trailer. I know that suits always make a look very polished and put together. As always, I thought of all the people that actually DON'T need to look like a CEO in their everyday life. So, I created 3 different(but similar in the same time) looks, a preppy, a sporty and a formal one.

The first and the second one are pretty casual and can be worn from day to night. I absolutely love the blue-grey combination and I think it's perfect for fall. I think that the first one is my favorite because you can totally mix and match and also swap the sneakers with some brown oxfords for the ultimate preppy perfection. I chose the sneakers in both looks because I think they make the whole look much easier to wear, especially for a younger guy. 
The third look is the one you'd go for to impress your boss, or wear at a wedding, or if you actually are a CEO xd. It's so simple yet it looks like a million dollars. It makes me think..."Mr Grey will see you now"-sorry I couldn't help it.
So which one of these looks is your favorite? What do you think of the bonobos suits? If you want to learn more about them, just visit their website www.bonobos.com
