A fringed jacket. Can you feel it? Can you feel the first signs of Spring? March is, of course, a beautiful yet very changeable month, but when the sun peaks its head out from behind the clouds, everyone notices that Spring is finally in the air. The sun is warmer, the days are longer, nature is blooming. I’m so happy – I adore Spring, it’s a beautiful season and I can’t wait for it to arrive in all its splendour!
A fringed jacket and a casual outfit for Spring!
So my urge to get rid of my coats is getting stronger by the minute, and why not, because we can finally enjoy some sunshine without being cocooned in our winter woollies! :) I’ve already abandoned my coat in favour of a glorious suede fringed jacket (an absolute MUST HAVE for your wardrobe that you can find in many high street stores at the moment!), that I’ve decided to dress down, with some slightly androgynous pieces: a pair of black skinnies, a white shirt, pointy boots and a masculine hat. What do you think of this look? Do you like it? Sending you all a big hug and wishing you a beautiful Spring :)
Silver brogues. In search of a super casual look? Something really comfy for the day but not boring… and that’s also still chic (which never hurts)? Today I’ve got the solution for you, with a look that I wore a few days ago!
Silver brogue, denim and stripes: a casual look!
I’ve opted for a denim pinafore (a denim shirt would also work well), and I’m all wrapped up in a “bathrobe style” striped coat (you can also try a striped jacket with a waisted belt over the top). Then I’m wearing silver brogues, which are the real centrepiece of my outfit (Trend Alert! Silver shoes of every kind!) with little socks and a long overcoat draped over my shoulders. I’ve also added a smart up-do to this look to contrast with my casual outfit… which also makes my entire look more chic, don’t you think? Here are all the fotos! :)
Mix & match. Pairing lots of colours in one look isn’t easy (If you find this tricky, have a look at my guide on my blog for how to combine different colours!), let alone pairing lots of different coloured prints and patterns altogether. However, with a little bit of practice it’s actually not so difficult. The trick is to mix contrasting patterns but make sure they all have the same colour spectrum (in my case here, red and white), and to wear them with neutral accessories (in my case black, but white or grey would also work well).
Mix & match: my print-clashing look!
So I’ve gone for a long red and white coat, a leopard-print skirt (but one with red and white details to continue the colour palette), a black and white striped shirt and black accessories. What do you think of the result? I’m very curious to know what you think ;)
Jelly shoes. Do you remember those shoes you wore when you were little, the plastic ones with the cut out eyelets down the sides (and sometimes also on the front part of the shoe), that had a buckle at the side that you wore to the beach (and that often gave you massive blisters)? Since they were almost always made of plastic they were known not only as “spider shoes” but also as jelly shoes. Well, this season, we welcome the return of the jelly shoe to fashion: we saw them on the catwalks in lots of different versions, both multicoloured and neutral, with flatforms, with heels, chunky styles, delicate styles… all designed precisely for the city!
Jelly shoes: they’re back in fashion. And not just for the beach! Here’s my street style look!
Obviously when reading a description such as this, you’re probably a little terrified. You’re almost certainly thinking “Okay, just another whimsical catwalk trend that I’ll never wear!”. But fear not, because there are lots and lots of very wearable options on the high street. I found this pair by Carmens that I can’t stop wearing (find them HERE on their website). They’re made of leather, combining the jelly shoe philosophy with the slip-on shoe trend, and they’re super comfortable: a great alternative to trainers for a casual look where you want to be comfortable but still look chic. What are your thoughts on the return of the jelly shoe? Do you like them?! Here’s my look!
The best make up removers. I recently discovered something that used to seem like nonsense to me, even if I’d heard everyone saying it was absolutely essential. I’m talking about the cleansing routine for removing your make up before bed. My fundamental golden rule, that I hope is also yours, is: “Never ever go to bed with your make up on”. Ok, I admit when I was younger I used to do it sometimes: after a really late night I would occasionally fall into bed without taking off my make up. I don’t remember any disastrous consequences on waking up the next morning to a pillowcase smeared in mascara. However if I did it now, the next day my skin would undoubtedly look like a 3D geographical map: aahh, spotty chin!! If you follow me on Snapchat you’ll know all about my troubles with these wretched chin pimples!! Skin problems are caused by lots of things, of course, however my skin always flares up when I don’t properly cleanse my skin, or when I’ve worn particularly heavy make up, for example when filming for TV or for photo shoots…
The best make up removers: I tried out 6 by lots of different brands, and here’s what I thought!
So I said to myself: “Come on, Irene, you have to take better care of your skin”. Starting with proper make up removal which, with hindsight, I know is really important. So, thanks to the amazing #SephoraMagicCleanser, I chose 6 different types of make up remover, from 6 different brands, and I tried them all out. I’ll tell you what I thought, what each one is like (some of them are a bit absurd) and which ones are my two favourites for my skin!
