turquoise maxi dress silver purse

I just want to celebrate the summer.. each every single second of it. The sun, the breeze, the grass… And the perfect way to counteract the summer heat is by wearing fresh, clean, airy, and simple outfits. I wanted the same feels for this party look too.

I’m in love with the refreshing aqua color and I really wanted to bring out its beauty and pair it with another color that stands out but cooling. I think these two colors complement each others nicely. This look is cool to rock at any summer parties like bridal showers, weddings, or babyshowers, whether they’re on beaches, poolsides, gardens, rooftops, etc.

metallic gold shirt

I wear gold as neutral. I think gold is more exciting and effective as a neutral element of an outfit than the usual neutrals (black, nude, white), it radiates the whole look.

I wanted to create a fun office look using gold, I paired a metallic lamé gold shirt with a muted red silk crinkle tea skirt. Then I belted my waist with a brown leather utilitarian belt. I added tiger print pony shopper tote bag to balance the solid colors and black/gold cork sandals to keep this office look summery fresh.

I got the inspiration of pairing gold and red a little bit from the Chinese culture. These two colors are specially meaningful to the Chinese. In their culture the color of red usually means good luck and the golden color symbolizes wealth and also happiness. The two colors couldn’t be any more appropriate to wear to work, don’t you think? Obviously you don’t want your outfits to look too ethnic-y, you always want the looks to be modern and current. So adding other elements like an animal print bag and a utilitarian belt is the key.

Gold makes an outfit.

cargo jumpsuit

I’ve had this jumpsuit for years. I love it so much, it’s just so awesome and original from the 80s. I wear jumpsuits a lot and proudly own some cool ones. This particular one is my favorite because of its ‘cargo’ utilitarian yet sexy style.

I styled this ‘mechanic’ jumpsuit with a large tiger stripe pony shopper tote and cutout platform wooden sandals for a casual ‘safari’ inspired look, then I throw on some metal chain bracelets to add a dash of sparkles. I rolled up the sleeves and the bottom of the pants to create the effortless feel to the look. This outfit is just fabulous for the weekend and for going to art shows.

We all have the rights to life, liberty, and the jumpsuit of awesomeness :)

Romanian tops are some of those fashion items with amazing style longevity. They never go out of style from decade to decade. I got my top from a lovely family member, I was so happy with the gift! She told me that one of her friends gave it to her in the 60s when she lived in Paris at the time. The top was hand-made AND hand-embroidered in Romania by her friend herself. What a treasure! Lucky me! I styled my Romanian top with my cut-off dark jeans, my gold Alaïa wedges, and a vintage crocheted flower plastic shopper bag. It’s a serious summertime!!
