👙 Beach Party Look 👛

OOTN está listo! Everyone likes a little black dress with statement accessories for a night out, hence I thought that I’d mimic that classic LBD look for my beach party. A little black swimsuit and a recent D&G stone studded clutch purchase I didn’t get a chance to style yet. Of course since the sun will still be up (it gets dark ridiculously late in Marbella) hat + sunnies are a must to make a decent entrance (+ protect from the sun!)😉   

  

Striking 🔵 Blue

When basking in Marbella’s sweltering Mediterranean sun, I like to return the favor and reflect back some sunshine! Latex swimsuits are not only a great match to your mirror sunglasses for that modern slick look but they are also unique in that they’ll never look wet after your pool / sea dip as the water just slides off the latex 💦

Silueta de Barcelona

Stylish and unapologetic, Catalonia’s capital captured my imagination from the first day. I really think we’re gonna be very good friends… She dresses her buildings in couture-like detailed designs, juxtaposes them with ultra modern buildings, drizzles the art of a visionary artist here and there and throws in a beach for good measure!

Gloves Wrap-Up

As a mother of two, practicality imposes itself in my OOTDs and increasingly this has meant a challenge to accessorizing as jewelry peaces are perceived as edible toys by my baby… So in order to avoid getting chocked or having my ears ripped off and to add a little oomph to an otherwise (God forbid!) mundane look, I’ve started a small obsession this Winter season with more practical and functional accessories ornated with old-era designs. In this outfit I opted for gloves: functional (shield vs. the cold) and kids friendly (kids can’t get hurt by or swallow a glove) and they add a lot of flair and romanticism to a look… Of course it’s key to find the right gloves for your look, as there is a risk of them looking too costumey or ill-matched if they don’t blend into the theme of the overall outfit. Remember that fit is key so make sure your gloves don’t make your fingers look disproportionately large! Finally, you can’t wear gloves for every Winter OOTD, so remember that the same can be achieved with a carefully selected old-era designed scarf or hat.
