Sweet’n’Raw’s Sweet Dreams: THE SHORTS

Good morning my sweet readers! Wednesday, Wednesday… Only two days left for the weekend to begin. Today I’m bringing you the third post from our Pajama trend series (clicke HERE and HERE if you haven’t read the first two). This trend may seem comfy and casual at first sight, but like all things fashion, we can dress it up and down anyway we want. Pajama shorts are the perfect season companions, you just have to look for a silky or chiffon pair. The ones with drawstrings work well, just look for soft structured ones. Here’s a selection you can find online. Whether you are a flower girl, a minimal one or a graphic print junkie, there’s a perfect pair for you out there.

PAJAMA SHORTS LOOK

A little cute goes the long way with this one. This Thakoon Addition shorts are perfect for Summer, light, cheery and pretty. To dress them up a bit more, I added a blouse with a bow detail and some fabulous pumps to elongate the legs. If you want to go flat, chose a pair of Oxfords to add some contrast. For the bag, a girl can only dream about vintage $4,000 Chanel, right? But any beige, quilted shoulder bag will do!

SPRING LEATHER: THE SKIRT

Well good Tuesday, my sweet readers! I’m writing to you from my bed, with an excrutiating stomach ache, but hey, work has to be done right? After a couple of sans post days, I’m back to deliver the fourth of my Spring Leather series. Today we are going to be talking about the leather skirt, an item that got so popular last season (we all got our cream or black, elastic waisted, Zara pleated skirt) and that stuck around for this one. Spring leather is always more fun, whether you go metallic, pastel, neon or even basic black, you are in for the kill if you style it right. Here’s the selection of skirts you can find online:

SKIRT SELECTION

MIDDLE: Chloe / Marni / Stephen Sprouse

BOTTOM: Karl Sachi / Monki / Miu Miu

LOOK OF THE DAY

I’m back to pastels, this time mixed in with leather (coincidentally, pastel and leather are my two all-time obsessions). This look is cute, it’s flirty and it’s comfy, dare to try it out?

We still have one leathery post on the works, then I’m gonna start tackling Summer trends. Bikini season is just around the corner (I’m seriously considering a Jersey Shore fake tan, I look like a steamed dumpling) and Sweet’n’Raw has all the fashion scoop.

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

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?

Sweet kisses…

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