Sweet’n’Raw’s SUMMER SESSIONS

Another week is starting (and let’s hope it goes away fast) and we are getting closer to Summer and to… wait for it… HOLIDAY TIME! And since Sweet’n’Raw likes to celebrate each season, I have been cooking some new and fabulous sections to give the blog its hot and sunny revamp. As we prepare to bid farewell to Spring (I really didn’t see much of it thanks to Milan’s bipolar, weather disorder), we might as well start to fill those drawers with bikinis and shorts and that shoe closet with wedges, flip-flops and barely there sandals. Scrub those legs, pedicure those feet, lather up on self-tanning lotion (never up to the Snooki point) and smile, after all, they do call it the happiest season of the year.

On my Facebook page (LIKE it if you still haven’t done so), I have been warming you up for this moment with my STOCKING UP FOR SUMMER album. Now the time has come to that that plunge and immerse ourselves into the heat. I therefore declare the season open (even though we are still some days away from the official date).  What to expect from our Summer Sessions?

  • New sections (tomorrow you’ll get to meet one of them)
  • The Summer Getaways 2012 edition
  • The Summery Nail Files
  • The Style Diaries: NEW YORK STYLE

And many, many more surprises for you, my sweet readers! Are you ready to embrace Summer with me? Let’s hug the season together, let the sun and sea times begin!

Sweet kisses…

THE GARDEN GODDESS: THE SHORTS

It’s finally Friday and Milan seems to be happy about it too, the sun is out and the day is warm. Dear rain, I signed up for Spring, if I wanted to see you contsantly I would’ve moved to London. We are halfway through with our Garden Goddess series and today I have prepared a colorful and relaxed look using floral shorts. Shorts are the ultimate weapon a girl has inside her closet, you can use them for almost any occasion and you get to flash and tempt the lads with your killer, lower limbs (I really need to get my legs Spring ready. A little Snookification wouldn’t hurt on this raw pastry-colored pair of pins of mine). Without further ado, I’ve put together a selection of flowery shorts that you can find online.

SELECTION

TOP: Dolce & Gabbana / TOPSHOP / H&M

MIDDLE: Jack Wills / Jason Wu / Marni

BOTTOM: Attic and Barn / TOPSHOP / Delia’s

LOOK OF THE DAY

Using the pair of shorts almost every girl has in her closet, the Zara high waisted ones, I have put together a casual look. It’s marvelous how the pastel ombre sweater works with the floral print. You can definitely take this to Coachella this weekend, just switch the wedges for some flats and a mini crossbody to complete the ensemble.

ACCESSORIES

BEAUTY

  • Rose nail polish, Dolce & Gabbana Bouquet

For all the details on today’s outfit, go to FASHIOLISTA

It’s a wrap for today! For the next post I am going to be taking on floral pants, a favorite among the crowd this season. Feel free to leave me a piece or your mind, I love to see what you, my lovely readers, have to say about it all!

Sweet kisses…

THE GARDEN GODDESS: THE JACKET

 

Little Friday, my sweet readers! Ready for the weekend (hopefully, a weekend with no rain)? In case you want a fresh and pretty ensemble for a Saturday afternoon, I’m giving you the best from my flower garden (a rather fashionable and wearable garden). This is the second post from the Garden Goddess series, and judging by the response, you seem to be really enjoying this. Today’s garment is the jacket. A floral jacket is a key piece inside your closet: you can dress it down with some cut-offs and a tank, dress it up for a night out with a sequin or metallic mash-up, or simply wear it with a pair of trousers or some tailored shorts for a smart look. Your closet, your choice, I’m just a hopeful inspirator. Here’s a selection of jackets you can find online, for every pocket there’s an alternative.

SELECTION

TOP: Ted Baker / River Island / River Island

MIDDLE: Dolce & Gabbana / Elizabeth & James / Mary Katrantzou

BOTTOM: Dolce & Gabbana / Manoush / Vera Wang

LOOK OF THE DAY

Lace and floral print have always been a match made in heaven. For this look, I wanted to play with separates instead of a dress. I chose this lace top and tucked it inside a high waisted skirt, leaving outside the tank’s tiny peplum. You likey?

ACCESSORIES

BEAUTY

  • Size matters nail polish, ESSIE

For all the details on today’s look, go to FASHIOLISTA.

I have more garden posts in the oven for you! In the meantime, cheer up and wear some flowers this weekend.

Sweet kisses…

PS: Many exciting things are coming up so keep on visiting!
