a black and white summer outfit…. but what about Fall….

To start with I want to thank you all for the great welcome back I received. You’re the best and have the ability to make one feels liked. Thank you so much!!!

Well it’s summer and normally summer means bright colours, don’t you think?
But a black and white outfit sometimes is a good change even for a person like me that is known for always put a bit of colour on the looks.
But if you look closely you can see that it’s not totally black and white… lol… I have my red sunglasses… :)
That’s what I wore yesterday:

black suede fringe t-strap shoes - local store (S/S 2009)
black and white skirt - H&M (S/S 2007)
black tank - Zara
deconstructed white cardigan - local store (S/S 2009)
bracelet - Bijou Brigitte (S/S 2009)
cocktail ring - gift from Hubby
red frames sunglasses - mainland store (S/S2009)
white bag - Bata
lipstick - Esté Lauder
perfume - Amor Amor from Cacharel

I found it interesting that some of you pointed to my lack of dresses and how could be a piece that suits me. Thank you…. Food for thought :)

But all the gossip now is about Fall!!! I’m very excited about Fall… I know we are still with the hit, but…
I’ve been reading some things and I’m delightful with some trends, like the bold shoulders, yeah “power dressing”, the lady like mixed with the rock vibe, the statement necklaces, boots with cropped carrot pants or tucked skinny jeans and what about the belted figure… Oh you know I’m a “belts lady”.
But if you’re not an hour glass figure I think you must not despair, there are also looks that you can wear your belt, more over the hips or even above the waist under the chest. That’s my opinion, but as you know I’m not an expert.
And what about you, have you been thinking already of Fall???

All this talk about Fall made me realize that I’m not a good summer fashionista, what I like is the layering, the combination of various pieces, I think I’m definitely a Fall’s one.

And that’s what I wore today. This top is from the 80’s, we can’t call it a vintage, but I’m sure it’s a retro.

Take care and enjoy your time!
