As I was mentioning in my 2019 Peachy Spring Make-up, this Spring I’m not so into pastels. It feels too 2018 for me; you might not feel the same way and it’s really okay. I mean, we all wear whatever makes us feel awesome, but today I really want to show you ONE amazing trend that I absolutely love: MILITARY inspired clothing. Keep on reading and turn the runway into your own outfits! BE aware: this is not your usual Spring outfit.

We can see beautiful textures, worn in different combinations for this Spring. Fashion Houses such as Alberta Ferretti, Fendi and Givenchy released their military inspired collections and all I have to say is that I’m deeply in love with the concept. That’s a proper Not A Girly staple: bold & fearless. Let’s break down this trend and adapt it to our own everyday looks, shall we? 💥

Add different textures to your outfit

One 2019 Spring Trend You Have to Try Now! NotAGirlyGal

I realised this quite recently actually, but adding different textures can take your outfits to the next level. In the military case, you’re looking for a dress or a co-ord that can be accessorised easily. By that I mean wear a belt or jacket on top that’s made out of a different fabric.

I chose a khaki safari dress (find similar here or here) that looks amazing on tanned olive skin. There are loads of options online, you can even type ‘utility dress’ and browse from different pieces. It’s definitely a must have for Spring-Summer!

Make your outfit RUNWAY READY

It’s time to make your outfit look a lot more stylish and turn it into a wearable runway outfit. The easiest way you can do that is to put a cool jacket on top of your dress! I browsed the online stores and found this jacket with pockets for you – it doesn’t have those crazy colours on the back as mine, but I’m sure it will look amazing regardless.

Last details

Add your last details to make your look pop! I’m in LOVE with stylish & high quality sunglasses – the type that makes your look really chic. This Weekend MVTM pair looks gorgeous in the Khaki combination, especially because their reflection turns dark green at times. Wear a watch that is neat and can easily compliment your outfit as you have a lot going on already. This unique design of the Jaded Rose MVTM watch is simply beautiful and it’s made it in my watch top already! This brand is so popular on Instagram and it’s gaining so much momentum because their products have such a good quality! Use the code NOTAGIRLYGAL15 for 15% off when you shop on the MVTM website.

This post is about just being you. I am not referring to having completely style makeover in the New Year, but to you experiencing with different add-ons that you can selfishly use to express your personality. Feeling edgy? Try glitter! Feeling I-need-to-make-myself-noticed-from-the-Moon? Get your enormous scarf on!

What is style?

For me, a woman’s style lays in her personality and her genuine power to express it through her clothes. Clothes that empower us highly interest me because I always have this famous quote  on my mind: Dress for the life / career you want. Could you imagine a life in which you use your personal style and clothes to get closer to your aspirations? If yes, then my lovely, you have the same view on fashion and style as I do.

Unleash the girl boss within you 

Just like in other areas of your life, trying new things is always an excellent way to grow. When it comes to fashion, we all have items that make us think ‘That’s so me’, but what about trying to find new ones to include in your wardrobe? I hope you know by now that when I say new I am talking about items that YOU haven’t tried before, not about the latest Valentino pair of shoes (that are always welcome anyway #though). Immersing yourself in discovering different accessories and clothes, will allow you to create a statement style for yourself that will empower you everyday. You can start with anything you want, just be BOLD: big earrings, blazers, faux fur jackets, leather pants, over the knee boots, a brooch. You have it in you – define your style to empower you to become the girl boss that you are. Plus, what better time to start your fashion adventure than the New Year?

Real talk here, I’ve always been afraid of experiencing new hairstyles. Besides wearing a fringe (cut all by myself at times) and getting a few Gossip Girl inspired headbands, I’ve always worn my hair in the same way: laid on the back. It’s like I’ve discovered how much fun it is to wear hair accessories (just different hats in my case) only last year. I actually feel super stylish when wearing my hats and they now represent an important part of my style. For the New Year, I am trying out sliver / golden hair accessories. 

Top Tip from Guido Palau: The accessory should always express who you are, and it should speak for itself.  So, don’t do it if you don’t feel comfortable while wearing it. But, don’t be afraid to try out. You’d never know if you don’t try.

Gatsby Bando

Really elegant and feminine, this Accesorize bando is sewn to perfectly combine little amazing details such as silver flower gems, leaves and beading. You can wear it during the day or night with a flattering dress. Let your personality shine through!

It’s that time of the year again and.. let me just tell you – sometimes I just want to put a cozy jumper on and don’t worry about my outfit because it’s that cold. I’m glad it doesn’t happen too often though, otherwise my outfits will have to embrace that boring vibe. One effective way through which I ‘fight’ my urge to just dress down, it’s finding the right accessories for winter! That’s right – the excitement of trying something new makes me want to mix my outfits even more.

How do I do that? Keep on reading and you’ll be ready to experiment more.

Over the knee boots 

The options they offer are never ending honestly. You can wear them with skirts, jeans, leather pants. Just add a smart shirt or blazer and your outfit will be top notch.

A cool bag

If a cool bag doesn’t push you to wear it in combination with your favourite items in your wardrobe, nothing will I just discovered the super cute Bragsy Bags I am wearing mine everyday – I explored so many outfit options with it.

Statement Jewelry

Last week at Young Designers Awards, I met one of the most unique jewelry brands I know, Biblos Glasgow. Their products are really bold and they’ll definitely make you feel strong. The level of craftsmanship in each piece is amazing! Follow them on Instagram for more updates: @biblosglasgow as they are preparing for a new collection launch

I created my favourite outfit for this winter and by just adding 4 cool elements I made it look really stylish.

  • Over the knee boots
  • Net fish tights
  • Cool bag
  • Statement Jewelry (you can wear any piece with it: necklace, earrings, big rings, headpiece)

The key is to keep your outfit simple and ready to be accesorised and you’ll never feel the need to dress in your old jumper again – Pinky promise!

I really hope my post made you see winter clothes from another perspective. Have fun accesorising and please let me know if you find any cool accessories.

Hello and welcome to my blog!

 

I just moved down to London in the beginning of August as I started a new digital marketing job and I’ve been in love with the English city ever since. I am super excited to start blogging here and meet other London bloggers (let’s connect on Instagram as well if you are one – I am building a nice network at the moment). The weather was surprisingly warm for England, so I tried to visit the city as much as my schedule permitted – You can imagine the whole apartment was full of my unopened boxes for a couple of weeks (literally)!

I heard all fab stories about Notting Hill, so I had to tick the place off my list. You will love the colourful or monochrome little houses surrounding the area. I know I did. The vibe of Nothing Hill is super cool and relaxed. If you plan visiting London, you might consider having a well-deserved break here from the city’s hustle and bustle over a strong cup of coffee or red chilled wine.

Obviously, I had to take advantage of the gorgeous areas and take some shots to show you both the area and accessory ideas. The outfit I chose is made up from an autumn trench (getting ready for that autumn fashion – Yas!) and my favourite pair of high heels. I feel this creamy colour is perfect for the summer-autumn transition, when you still want that summer vibe. As the outfit is quite simple, it’s essential to accessorize it! For this occasion, I chose to try different accessories and offer you some options depending on your accessory preferences. I absolutely love the pieces I got from Pilgrim’s Wild Autumn Collection 2017. Let’s get to them, shall we?

If you decide to wear a statement bracelet, then there’s no need for a necklace in my opinion. The look will be much more elegant if you pair it with some cool earrings.

However, if you prefer necklaces over statement bracelets (sometimes I do), a great idea would be to pair a necklace with a nice pair of earrings – one of them should be less noticeable than the other (similar to the next shot).

Alternatively, you can wear a cool necklace and keep the look simple by only drawing the attention on the one accessory.
