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.

Hello there,

I’m extremely happy to take part in LFW again! The crowds, the street style and the fabulous shows are just a couple of reasons why I enjoy it so much. Also, champagne and chatting to blogger friends are always a plus for me. I’ll take you with me during my first day at Fashion Week, so you can have a look at the amazing fashion from the comfort of your sofa.

STREETSTYLE

What did I wear during Day 1? I’ve chosen to wear this piece by Anja Rock, a Spanish designer. As it’s short, I paired it with some vintage high-waisted jeans. The long boots are a must have during LFW of course – so are the hats and statement trench coats.

Johnstons of Elgin

The first presentation of the night was the amazing Johnstons of Elgin who showcased items that reminded me of a mysterious desert. They transformed one of Waldorf Hilton’s halls into a desert oasis. I believe the inspiration for this collection is the bohemian style of people living in warm countries in the Middle East.

lfw

What intrigued me was the fact that flip flops are still in style for Spring – Summer 2019; they just have a string on the toe. I only said intrigued because in all honesty, I don’t see why we should wear flip flops all over the city anyway, like almost everyone did last summer. They’re made for the beach (if). Period.

IMG_4100.jpg

Nevertheless, the designer combined goddess dresses, flowy suits and romantic scarves with straight cut elements. The prints that ruled the presentation were a combination of black & white stripes (you know I have something for them) and oriental prints (on a small scale). In terms of the colour palette, the designer opted for black &white, bright colours such as lime yellow and bold navy blue.

What stole the show?

I could clearly see some trends being shown such as the flip flops I told you about and the flowy dresses, but my favourite trend was the straight cut mixed with an interesting scarf.

Takeaway: Inspired by this collection, we can wear similar patterns and colours every day. Think of the suit outfit, you can find items in your wardrobe that resemble the style and can be easily worn in that combination. Just add a fun scarf and you can change the look!

Trending colour of the Johnstons of Elgin collection: Bright yellow, navy blue, black & white.

For more collections check out their website.

 I made my way to the next show feeling inspired by the collection I’ve just seen, thinking about the hard work the designer put into creating it. We reached the Freeman’s Hall and were super keen to attend the Ashley Isham Show – my first show of the season. It better be freaking awesome, I thought.

Ashley Ishman

Ah the glitter! Ashley showed a glittery collection for the SS19! The colour combination was bold and can make you think that actually it can be quite hard to pull some dresses off. But, that the beauty of it, isn’t it? Well done, Ashley for encouraging us to be bold.

Ashley Ishman

The whole collection was dedicated to luxe summer parties – I’m thinking award nights or even ceremonies. It’s also wedding season, but not sure if people will wear bling bling at weddings. Either way, I quite liked the boldness of the collection.

Ashley Ishman

 

To get an idea of what I mean, have a look at this dress – pink & blue. That’s a bold mix, isn’t it?

 

 

 

Show stealer at Ashley Ishman

For me, it has to be the black embroided jacket. Superb details of the jacket make me think of the legend Michael Jackson and his Dangerous world tour and his signature style.

Me and my friend Saffy (who is so wonderful and genuine) wrapped up the night with some Japanese food at the Itsu around the corner of the venue where we met some other blogging girls! It only lasted for 30 minutes though as they were closing down the place and I finished my second dish on the tube – cause my philosophy is why buy one when you can buy two?

Thank you for reading! Stay tuned for day 2 at London Fashion Week!

Hello there,

Wearing something cool and comfortable in the same time, during the days that are sightly ‘colder’ than the usually summer days can be a bit difficult. Should you wear a dress? Then, you’ll probably be cold. Should you wear flats? Then, you would probably ruin them in case it rains. No more headaches! For those days, I created, what I like to call ‘the autumn outfit for summer’.

miss andrada how to wear a bold outfit 2

As you can see, this is not an autumn outfit. Otherwise, I would have call it just that.I easily took some elements that are assigned to autumn styling. But, you probably like to wear items that are not just for summer, too  – and you totally should because it will upgrade your cold summer evenings’ outfits.

miss andrada how to dress bold zara.jpg

Upgrading your summer outfits

Let’s take a basic summer outfit: shorts and a simple white top (similar here). You would wear this in summer, right? Now, when a summer day is a bit cold you shouldn’t go for long pants, light jumpers and so on. You can still wear your summer clothes! Just wear them with army boots, hats (find mine here), a leather jacket (find mine on sale here) or even longer boots if they are light. I PROMISE you,  your overall appearance will be so cool and you’ll feel so much better – sometimes long pants on a summer day can be a pain (I’m talking from experience haha).

Keep on reading for more tips on how to actually wear this outfit

Adding confidence to your outfit

If you’re not used to mixing items like so and if you need a bit of confidence for it, just remind yourself that you are your own kind of beautiful and you can wear whatever empowers you.

Finding your own style

It might be that hats are not your thing or that leather jackets are not. You can try to come up with replacements for these: big statement earrings – the ones you would normally wear in October, or trenches. Take my tips above and just twist them and adapt them to your own style. Get creative and you’ll start to reinvent your wardrobe.

Enjoyed this article? I would love for you to share it on your favourite social media platform or talk to your friends about it 🙂

What is your fashion way of embracing the colder summer days?

Lots of love,

Hello again girls,

How have you been? I bet you’ve been busy. We all are. All the time. Will we let us stop us from looking fabulous? Right now, I want to talk to you about a routine we as ‘the I want-to-do-it-all girls’ should all have to look and feel ‘a million dollars’ every day.

4 steps to be stylish and don’t spend 5 h getting ready

1. Use less make-up products to be ready quick

Although I really don’t wear make-up everyday as I go to the gym at lunch time, but for the days I want to wear it, I made my own 5 minute make-up routine to quickly apply it before I go to the office. All you need is 5 products and you’ll be ready in wow… 5. Try this: foundation, liquid eye-liner, mascara, natural contour kit, brow kit. Trust me, it’s all you need to look amazing. Try to limit yourself to as little products as possible to avoid the temptation to put eyeshadows at 8 o’clock in the morning just to spend 30 minutes on the make-up. Time waste..

miss andrada x notino estee double wear.jpg

2. Plan your outfits once a week

As you probably have seen in The Mindset of High Achievers – Habits for Achieving your Desired Fashion Style, you should plan your outfits once a week. In that way, you wouldn’t have to browse all your wardrobe in the morning to decide on your next one and more importantly, it will save you time on ironing in the morning. You got it! Plan & iron once a week for increased productivity.

3. Do your hair in the morning for 5 minutes

Since I have cut my bangs, I am washing them and straightening them everyday. There’s no way my hair will look good if I don’t straighten it just a little bit in the morning. Again, I only do it for 5 – 6 minutes and it looks good. I just feel better when my hair looks put together. Try this even though you don’t have bangs.

4. Eat healthy

You are what you eat and the more healthy you eat, the better you will feel and the nicer you will look. Carbs and sugar can make you look fat and tired; plus they have negatives effects for your skin too. Reduce the number of carbs and sugar and you will feel amazing results. Opt for a salad in the morning, chicken & vegetables for lunch and salmon for dinner.

Hello lovely ladies around the world,

Happy International Women’s Day! It’s sunny outside in London today and I highly hope that Spring will settle in soon. In case you’re as excited as I am to chuck your puffer jacket in the back of your wardrobe, I’ve put together a quick (very feminine) outfit for celebrating the beginning of warmer days (fingers crossed!).

Top Favourites this season: Hair wrap, Earrings & White Shirt

One accessory that I’m into (my bestie can confirm) is a cool hair wrap!  You probably have seen this over-sized white Hugo Boss shirt in my 5 basic pieces every cool woman needs post and I can’t help but pair it with this chic burgundy Mango skirt. As there are near different details in the top part of your outfit, you want to keep your shoes classic. I went for these pair of black stilettos that I got in Primark really quick for a party, last year.

The 2018 Way to Effectively Layer Your Clothes

Hello there,

If you’re in the hunt for really warm clothes and you believe puffer jackets are the only solution to the current situation, layering can really come in handy if you don’t like feeling wrapped up every single day. There are no big news here as you probably layer your outfits already without necessarily realising you do so. Keen to switch the usual ‘winter jacket’ for a cooler alternative, I began researching ways of dressing appropriately for winter. What can I do differently to change the way I’m creating my outfits to fit my current needs? Today, I’m happy to share with you my proved and effective layering strategy for the coldest months of the year.

First step: Tops tops tops

Mention the word basic top and I will be the first one to say: I need more! As basic as they are and as easy to find they are, I am currently having only six or seven to use for layering. I found it really useful to own basic tops in different colours based on the shirt colour to be added to it. I feel that a black top should not be mixed with a white shirt as it will look really tacky – it’s similar to matching the underwear to the clothes you’re wearing. There’s nothing more disgraceful than a black bra underneath a white shirt. I like my tops in black, white, pale pink, and nude as I have quite a lot of shirts / blouses from that colour palette. Add as many different colours as you like based on your wardrobe colour range. You will instantly see the difference in the final look.

The 2018 Way to Effectively Layer Your Clothes

Hot Tip: So, as you probably guessed, the first step is getting your tops to match the shirts’ colours.

Second step: Shirts & Bottoms

Depending on the outside temperature, you can choose between a full-length arm shirt or a T-shirt. The beauty of layering is that you don’t have to pack your wardrobe with jumpers as a top and a shirt will do the job if the third layer is done right.

You can choose between a pair of pants or a skirt. If you choose a skirt, pick a pair of winter tights. I usually wear pants, but there are some exceptions of course.

The 2018 Way to Effectively Layer Your Clothes

Hot Tip: Go for cool designs in your tops. A printed logo T-shirt, a lace blouse or a stripped shirt will do miracles to your outfit. Details always make the difference between a boring and a “wow” outfit. Bring your inner artist to the game!

Step number three: Blazers and Cardigans

If there are two things I LOVE to have in my wardrobe, they would be blazers and fellow cardigans. I call them fellow as they’re comfy and always there to help you feel warm & ready to fight the cold weather. After all, they are probably the most important layer of all (closely competing with tops). Be consistent with your colour scheme: three or four colours per outfit should be enough to create a well put-together outfit. Any outfit made out of more than four colours will make you look sloppy.

The 2018 Way to Effectively Layer Your Clothes

Hot Tip: Choose a wool blended cardigan / winter blazer to go on top of your shirts. Be careful not to use more than three – four colours overall when putting together the outfit.

Step Four: The Winter Jacket

An ultimate layer to your outfit would be the beloved (or not) winter jacket. Make sure it has a wool blend to keep you warm. There’s no harm in having two or three winter jackets in different styles and colours to complement your outfits.

Hot Tip: Choose wool blended jackets that come in different lengths & styles. You can adjust one winter coat to the length of your skirt, so the latter is not longer than the former. 

Optional Step for BOLD girls: Statement Accessory 

An accessory won’t make you bolder but it can help you express your strong personality. As  designer Michael Halpern said Right now, people need fantasy from fashion. I believe his remark is 100% true as it perhaps relates to the concept of people loving story telling. The more you create stories around your outfit, the more empowered you will feel. My go-to accessory for the month is this green beret that I’ve been wearing quite a lot.

The 2018 Way to Effectively Layer Your Clothes

Hot Tip: Embrace statement accessories and wear them with the confidence you have in you.

Psst: Don’t forget about your winter boots.

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!

Decorated with a luxury marble design and gold-tone metal slides, these hair grips will help you wear your hair in a new style while looking gorgeous! I created this plat decorated with loads of hair grips for an unique look.

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.

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.

 Autumnal / Halloween Haul

Happy Sunday everyone,

It’s THAT time of the year when we start to get excited about the leaves getting brown and the weather getting colder. Although, I have to say, London is so warm for almost the end of October and I can’t really complain because I’m not a freezing cold lover (maybe in a parallel universe someone loves super cold weather, but I personally don’t know anyone that does here haha).

I personally love to get festive and decorate my house according to the season. I feel that this year I actually made more in that sense for Autumn than ever before. Ah and this reminds me – I didn’t try the Starbucks Pumpkin Latte yet (so late to the party, girl!). Anyways, I picked different autumn scented candles, glitter pumpkins, real pumpkins, creepy chocolates and many other exciting stuff that I can’t wait to show you. Let’s get into it, shall we?

I made almost all my Halloween shopping in ASDA because I feel they have an awesome collection every year (I started to say awesome so much by the way). So we switched from the usual online groceries shopping and we hit the actual store last Friday night.

Glitter Pumpkins

They came in a set of three and they’re super cute! If you want to give a girly autumnal aspect to your bedroom, these cuties will perfectly suit you. Well, I love glitter and gold – imagine the excitement when I saw them on the website. I would highly recommend to check the website first because the Halloween section in store was kind of unorganised (everything was thrown in wrong aisles.. I mean I get shoppers’ excitement but they should be conscious about their actions! – OK, that sounded so serious).

halloween2017 decorations pumpkin

Aren’t they the best?

Baileys Pumpkin Spice

Woo Baileys you are beyond AMAZING! Basically, this limited edition tastes like cinnamon and spiced chai blended with the original Irish cream. I love it when limited edition drinks are really different from the original. I was actually surprised by the perfect blend and how crazy good this tastes (not that I don’t love the original too). It’s that one drink that you HAVE to try this season – it will lift your mood and perfectly get you into the Autumn feeling. Enjoy the strong spices on the rocks (2 ice cubes will do) and embrace the season!

baileys pumpkin spice

Little Yankee Candles

I love having little candles because I get bored so easily of scents (Mercy, my best friend will agree with me on this). If you’re like me, you’ll understand. My picks for this season:

Japanese Maple and Iced Almond Cookies

Yankee Candle Autumn

The first one smells subtle which is not bad in general, but I prefer a stronger scent to my candles.  It’s a good one for the season, but I am still looking for the perfect one – Any suggestions please?

The second one smells like my mum’s Christmas cookies – yum yum yum!

Halloween Cupcakes

They look so sooo lovely! I saw these on the shelf and thought they will go so well for the Halloween pre-party. You can see in the picture the pumpkin we carved – it’s super scary at night!

halloween cupcakes pumpkin

Now, I will pour a glass of Baileys, light a Yankee candle and snuggle in bed with my fashion magazines while you browse your items for Halloween.

Happy Halloween my lovelies,

MISSANDRADA

Hi girls,

It’s Autumn already – that great transition between summer and winter that always gets us questioning what would be the perfect items to wear. Don’t let yourself too influenced by the ‘latest’ trends that try to make you run to the shops and buy all the ‘new-in’ items. Evaluate really well whether you need THAT or not. Let’s say the new item consists of a ripped T-shirt. Chances are that you will only wear it once or twice. So, why invest in something that will only occupy space in your wardrobe? Today we’ll talk about the five items you need to conquer the autumn fashion.

First of all, a wardrobe is really complete if you own basics, but know how to match them with different accessories / clothes. Why should you have basics? Simply because you can also wear them on their own, but it would be really easy for you in the future to assign the basics to different styles to create great outfits. However, let’s talk about the basics now –a mix and match blog post is coming up soon.

It’s important to have your essentials in black or white so when you add other clothes, you will keep the chromatic balance – as you should never wear more than 3 colours at once.

A Black Body Top

The black body top is a must in every woman’s wardrobe.  It looks amazing underneath a cool jumper or shirt and it will keep you warm during those rainy days.

missandrada-autumn-essentialsmissandrada-autumn-essentials

A minimalist white button-down shirt

There is no need to tell you about the wonders a white shirt can do an outfit. You can knot it in front or tuck it in. I wouldn’t wear it untucked (at least in front) or unknotted, just because I believe it can make the body look big and bulky, unless I wear it on top.

A pair of black faux leather pants

Ah, how much I love these! Faux leather pants can spice up an outfit and make you feel like you’ve just walked out from a rock music video.

missandrada-autumn-essentials-whiite-shirt-hat-black-leatherpants

 Black Heel Boots

A pair of heel boots can make any outfit look super stylish. I feel they can look so cool with pants or with a short-knitted dress.

missandrada-autumn-essentials-whiite-shirt-hat-black-leatherpants

A black hat

This is a basic (from my point of view) but also a statement item to wear in autumn and winter. Take my word for it and go get a good quality hat to wear this season.

missandrada-autumn-essentials-whiite-shirt-hat-black-leatherpantsmissandrada-autumn-essentials-whiite-shirt-hat-black-leatherpants

I am wearing:

Zara Black Lace Body Top

Hugo Boss White Shirt

H&M Black Faux-Leather Pants

Miss Guided Boots

Zara Hat

Note: If leather pants are not for you, you can add a black pair of skinny jeans for your essentials – the effect will be quite similar. Also, if you prefer dresses to pants, a little black dress can for sure be included in your list. A great alternative for basics instead of a pair of heels can be a pair of army boots (I AM A HUGE FAN); just please do not consider trainers as essentials or basics – they look good only when you work out.

 

What items do you have in your essentials? Scarves? T-shirts? Please let me know in the comment sections, so I can find out other opinions and add some more on my list. I really value your comments!

Until next time,

MISSANDRADA
