Personalizing your jeans!
Personalizing your jeans: ideas to customize your denim at home!
During this edition of Fashion Week I spent 7 days in Milan, choosing this time to stay in an apartment. A huge apartment, the one you’ll see in today’s pictures and that also doubled as a set for the pictures of some of the looks I wore during Milan Fashion Week.. Including this pyjama (from H&M!) that reminds me that I sleep too little and work a little too much, ehehe!! The super cool apartment I found once again via Homeaway.it (yes, after our incredible experience in Haute-Savoie this summer I definitely needed to try the Homeaway service again!) you can find it HERE, at THIS LINK, if you’re curious (you’ll find the price here as well!). We needed the apartment to be huge to host part of our team. We were a total of 5 in this house.. And I can confidently say that we could have hosted even more people! A giant living area, a colourful kitchen with everything you could possibly need, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It was ideal.. And this industrial and minimalist design was truly gorgeous!!
How to wear sneakers. At any age, and please correct me if I’m wrong, sneakers are, by far, the most comfortable shoes we have in our closets. If, up until a few years ago, sneakers weren’t much more than shoes to wear to the gym after decades of absolute splendour between the 80’s and the 90’s, in the past years they’ve made a comeback as footwear to wear even during the day, with non-sporty and happy hour appropriate looks. Yes, because sneakers are perfect to create casual chic looks that take you from day to night. Don’t believe me? Do you still have doubts on how to pair sneakers with non-sporty looks?
Before showing you the big inspiration gallery I put together for your looks, here are my 3 favourite pairings. How to wear sneakers with non-sporty and happy hour appropriate looks. Try it and let me know:)
– WHITE SNEAKERS WITH A BLACK TUBE DRESS: pair white sneakers with a black tube dress, diva glasses and an elegant purse. So chic!
– CONVERSE WITH A LONG SKIRT: very casual yet very feminine. A pairing loved especially by young girls!
– SNEAKERS WITH A TUBE SKIRT+ LONG COAT: perfect for winter.. I’m warning you though, without tights!
Boots in summer. If there’s one rule of fashion that has been ignored, a rule that is now actually fashionable, it is that of wearing boots in summer. Okay, it’s true that I always wear boots when it’s pouring with rain and cold, but for spring and summer, I’ve learnt how to wear them…
In true California style, a mix of Coachella and Boho Chic style (I told you about it in this look) and between cowgirl and prairie styles (which we talked about here), the ankle boot has stuck around for the summer season, only this time with bare legs. Whether worn with a miniskirt or a little dress, this is how I’ve chosen to wear my ankle boots in summer
How to maintain your tan.
We’re back from the sea, and for many of us vacation is over, safe for a few sporadic days at the sea in September to enjoy a few last beautiful sunny days. All in all, we were good this year, we admit it: our tans are perfect! If you’ve seen my video in which I share all the secrets to getting a perfect tan, you already know what I’m talking about!
But now that September has rolled around, the moment to begin working on maintaining your tan for as long as possible has arrived.
It has been proven that if it isn’t cared for properly, a tan fades away within 3 weeks. Let’s get to it straight away: here are a few secrets to get started on RIGHT AWAY!!
Watch what you eat.
As I told you in my video dedicated to tanning, the same precautions you take before exposing yourself out in the sun should be considered after exposing oneself in the sun as well. Drink lots of water, eat foods rich in vitamins such as fruits and vegetables, and in particular foods that are rich in betacarotene and omega 3 (like salmon!).
Avoid saunas, hot showers or baths.
High temperatures accelerate the skin peeling process: try to take showers and baths with warm water instead of with hot water, and avoid saunas and steam rooms. While you’re at it, beware of strong air conditioning: it dries out the skin!
