?MORE OR LESS? #10

?More or Less? #10
Hello guys! Here I am again with yet another #moreorless post! It's been a while, right? I just realised that I missed these and, since I had some spare time, I decided to give it a go.
As always, I wanted to stick to the trends and show you that it's not always about money. You can create the exact same look for so much less-it's ridiculous! And, unless someone is a fashion expert, they probably won't be able to tell the difference when they see you in person. I mean, sure, you pay more for better quality, but also MUCH more for the Brand.
Here, I tried to incorporate as many summer trends as I could and create a cute (transitional) outfit for you. Button-front denim skirt, lace-up ballerinas, aviators, a Drew bag, a bandana around your neck, a crop Bardot top with ruffles and Kendall Jenner's lariat(Y) necklace. If I added more the set would probably explode XD
I absolutely love these looks for summer and the beginning of fall and, because everything is just so basic in this set, you can pair it with so many different pieces and create many more outfits. A multitasker AND a bargain? Seals the deal for me!
Don't get me wrong, I would absolutely love to have an authentic Drew, but I can't afford it at the moment. And I'm sure most people on a budget can't as well. That is the reason I make these posts. Also, I want to show all of you that being chic and stylish doesn't necessarily require piles of money!
Anyway, I hope you liked this look. Let me know what you think about it and the trends in the comments below♥

?MORE OR LESS? #9

?More or less? #9
I can't believe this is the 9th version of my ?More or less? category! The first one was five months ago and it involved warm, black turtlenecks. And here we are now...with summer style, maxi dresses and cute sandals, all ready for vacation. It doesn't feel real! Sometimes it feels like it was yesterday, and sometimes it feels like it was like two years ago. 
But let's get straight to the point now. You know I'm digging anything that is a multitasker, alias anything that can be worn in more than one possible ways and in multiple occasions. This is the case with these gorgeous maxi cobalt blue dresses. Here I am showing you the morning version, but this doesn't mean that you can't pull this off easily in many more ways. From a fun day at the beach and a casual coffee break with friends, to a night summer walk or a polished evening gala. Even for a business meeting! You just need to add the right accessories and dress it up or down. You can simply throw it over your favorite swimsuit, add a cardigan, a pashmina or a jacket, switch from flats to heels and, obviously, lose the sunnies and the hat and go for statement jewelry. 
Did you notice that I tried to make the costs more realistic? It's probably the cheapest ?More or less? set I've ever created, whether you go for more or for less! I love how it looks so effortless, yet put together. I've always been a fan of mixing leopard print with dark cobalt blue or black, because I think that it calms they work well together without making things too loud.
You really can't go wrong with such a simple piece, but remember to keep it chic and not overdo it. Especially in the summer.
Wear blue(my 2nd favorite color) and don't feel blue♥

?MORE OR LESS? #8

It's been ages since I last made a ?More or Less? post. It's just that it requires a lot of work and search and lately I it's been hard to cope with time and obligations. You know how we say that you get "punished" during the week for the sins of the weekend? Well, I don't know what I've done, but I'm being "punished" with tons of work for a long time now. And it's not the kind of work that you do because you chose it and you love it. It's something mandatory to take things to the next level. Plus, when you do your job, you get paid. But, for example, in the french diploma exams, you pay them. Yeah! But I try not to stay miserable, and the opportunities that keep coming up because of my blog, really motivate me to keep going. I love french, anyway. It's other things that I can't stand.
Anyways, as you've probably realised if you follow me on Polyvore(you totally should if you don't), I've been into casual chic lately. This of course doesn't mean that the cost of the outfits is getting any lower. But there is no point in showing you affordable options of Haute Couture, since most of you probably don't have the proper occasion to pull off such outfits. Instead, everyone can relate to casual everyday looks. Gingham has been a pretty big thing lately, especially in pastels. I chose these black and white shorts to get away from the romantic, and pajama, aspect of the trend. I paired them with white t-shirts with mesh detailing to make things a little more interesting. The Chloé gladiator sandals are so good and chic for such a chunky shoe. A friend of mine told me that she hates gladiator sandals and that she prefers flip-flops. I don't agree, do you? To brighten up the looks I added the neutral backpack that you have also seen here. Final details, the bracelets! I love stacking bracelets so so SO much! It's fun and elegant and compliments perfectly any outfit any time of the day. The difference between the prices is ridiculously big. I even added J.Crew to the affordable outfit, what else can I do?
I love both outfits and I would totally wear them, more or less! What about you?

LET'S GO TO BERMUDA

?More or Less? #7 -bermuda shorts-
Yesterday we were talking about shoes that "repel" men, but today I thought we should steal their style! Bermuda shorts are another trend this season, but they are not new at all. Men have been loving them for years and so have some women as well. But I just never thought that they are flattering or that they fit in my style. Sure thing, if you have a "perfect" body then you can wear these and look good, but it's a fact that they are not the most feminine piece you can find. So, I decided to create another ?More or Less? set, styling in a chic and feminine way bermuda shorts. If I had to chose, I would definitely go for a vivid color such as turquoise or this hot pink(two of my favorite colors). I paired it with all white, a peplum top, two tone espadrilles and bucket bag. I really like the gold triangle necklaces because they simply go with everything and you all know my love for pieces like that. It's always a delight to find such similar products in such different prices. I mean, apart from the Stella McCartney espadrilles that have smaller mesh and leather, everything else looks pretty much the same. But the price sure doesn't! I like this look because it's simple yet not so much, and if you keep everything else, you can pair them with almost any bermuda shorts or any other bottoms for that matter. All these white pieces are staples and must-haves in any closet for summer, whether you choose the expensive or the affordable version. It's up to you if you want to spend 400 for Marni or 17 for Target yada yada yada.
Do you guys like these looks? Are you a fan of bermuda shorts? Please leave a comment to let me know what you think!
