Sunny Yellow

There are days when I like to doll-up and what a better outfit for this than a feminine ruffle mini dress and high-heels. I think that a shorter hem for a dress elongates the legs and make you to be more playful! 
Have a great weekend!

Layers and Me

Today, we had  showers here and there, so every time that I got out from a store I was surprised by rain or sun. On  days like that you definitely don't know how to dress. So, I went for a layers look and be prepared for any situation.
                                                                                                                                xoxo Irina

Wax Me

When you're a fashion blogger, you take many many pictures in order to post an ensemble in the blog. Every time, when a photo of me is taken I hope that a perfect picture was taken. Sometimes, you have good and excellent surprises sometimes the photos are not so good or even bad. Today, when I downloaded the photos in my Mac I had a cute surprise, I saw how I'm gonna look someday when I'm gonna be famous and Madame Tussauds is gonna make a wax copy of me. Until that day to come I'm gonna watch my today's photos. 
Happy Monday!

It's been a while since I was looking to buy a clutch for summer. I had two criteria  in mind, the clutch should be roomy and summery coloured. Then it hit me, what a better place to shop than in your own closet. You can be surprised how many good things you can find that was long forgotten by you in your closet. So, now I enjoy this vintage looking clutch that has room for all the useless things that I carry with me every single day.

Purple fun

My hubby finished with success all his exams and in order to celebrate we went to a good restaurant. He studied so hard, so what a better way to celebrate the great grades than going to a nice dinner. For this occasion, I wore this purple dress that is classic yet stylish. To be honest, the dress looks great but is still very important to not eat to much during the dinner because the tummy shows so much in this body hugging dress. 
And you, how you celebrate a successful study year?
                                                                                                                                  xoxo Irina

Dress or tunic

I'm a huge fan of versatile clothes. For example, this dress is fun and flirty and it can be worn like a dress or like a tunic paired with jeans. Simplicity and versatility of clothes is a key to mixing and matching, an art that I never stop to study. 
                                                                                                                                     xoxo Irina

This post is different because I wanted to create something more feminine and old school. I think I succeeded to show the soft and feminine side of this chiffon dress.  Also, this was the perfect moment to wear my DIY flowery headband. 
So, enjoy your monday in order to have a beautiful week.

The Challenge Day 4

Like I said in previous posts, I challenge myself to do the maximum of different  outfits that match my pink tote. A bohemian blouse and light green jeans are a perfect combination for a shopping day with girls or a late lunch with my hubby followed by a walk in the park. 
                                                                                                                                            xoxo Irina

Maxi dress

Monday, I spent all day cleaning in my walk-in closet. I always switch places of the season clothes. Every time when I make that switch I find clothes that I forgot I own. Todays dress is the result of this spring switching. This jersey maxi dress is the most comfortable and fun dress that I own. Its fabric is amazingly comfy and the colour matches perfectly my army printed bag. 
Have a lovely week! 
                                                                                                                                   xoxo Irina

Today is my 100th post and I couldn't be happier. In january of this year, I started this blog and so far it's  a beautiful opportunity to talk about what I like the most, Fashion.  It's been so good to familiarize with blogger community which is very inspiring and supporting of small bloggers like me. I became a better person because of the great experience that I have a chance to live. Also, it's very important to mention that my blog wouldn't be possible without the great and supporting  husband that took all the pictures and helped me, and selflessly dedicated his effort and time. Many more post are to come so I'm extremely excited to live them at the fullest.
Happy anniversary VIOLET CAT style !!!!!
