Something checkered – yes, of course!

Checkered pants or leggings – I’m going for both . They are just beautiful and almost everyone is wearing them because they have this chic vibe to them. French style mixed with retro, they are like this fashion challenge everyone’s doing, wearing them to fit their own looks. Some girls wear them with sneakers, some go for heels; some wear them relaxed and chic, while others go for sleek office formal styles.

I like wearing them on different occasions, but today I am going in a city street style and match my checkered Calzedonia leggings with a simple black shirt, accessories and once again one of my favorite teddy coats – the one in yellow.

For achieving a classic look with such kind of pants, grab a basic shirt or singlet out from the back of your wardrobe and pair it with them. White, grey, naxy, black and tan tops are also great options, matched in a fashion way.

Life is better in sneakers

Out of all my fashion struggles, I think shoes are by far the most challenging for me. Most of my time I wear casual or elegant shoes and rarely put on stretchy flats or sneakers, unless I’m exercising of course. That is because I think sport shoes do not emphasise a woman’s femininity. But if chosen right you could match them pretty well.

Moreover the current fashion trends allow for breaking of stereotypes – ugly, chunky, plateau-sneakers find their way into many outfits. Although a bit rough, i got to like them, although i would prefer the flat converse-type and sock sneakers more.

My outfit today is street style – a favourite t-shirt of mine with the logo „Life is better in sneakers“, skinny jeans and of course the sneakers. Those sneakers actually have a story by themselves – produced by the Giuliano Gudman designer, they are a unique piece.

Enjoying the wonderful weather in Bulgaria

I am in my home country Bulgaria for a week now and I am enjoying the really wonderful weather here – one that feels more like summer rather than autumn. So, I still got the chance to wear some of my summer outfits – for example like this, one of my favorite – a long off shoulder tunic, in pale pink which is trendy also for autumn and winter clothes, ending with an elegant lace and matched with black shorts. It combines in a great way the street style with elegance, with which I am obsessed.

Not dreaming of the 100k, but following my dreams

Years ago my view about the purpose of my life and work left me feeling hungry for a fresh start. I was ready for a little effervescence and so I followed the passion that I ever wanted to – the fashion.

So, now, after many years working in the fashion world I finally found my real place… Nowadays I‘m no longer dreaming of those „100k“ (or more) likes, I just want to keep presenting you my fashion views and ideas, trying to be of as much help as possible, of course always in fashion way 😊. But don’t forget – most important thing is – learn, collect ideas, follow others but always stay true to you and be yourself.

How do we wear a bodysuit?

In the same way like the one-piece swimsuit the bodysuit is also one of my favorite. This one-piece wonder offers support, flexibility and a variety of styling options from professional to downright sexy looking. But why and how do you wear one?

Bodysuits are one-piece garments, similar to a leotards made from the finest nylon tricot that come in a range of styles from long sleeved and blousey to spaghetti strapped, cut-off and skintight ones. They function as any shirt would (except a crop top). Most bodysuits also provide tension from the shoulders to the crotch to help play up your curves, especially with low-cut necklines. They basically lift you up and work as the perfect base layer for any outfit! Bodysuits could be worn almost with everything – skirts, pants, shorts and jeans – any bottom you can think of. Styling a bodysuit can range from casual, sexy street style, to a professional glamorous look.

When going casual, think simple styles in stretchy fabrics to make an eye-catching look. Simple tank top bodysuits (with some fun details like an open back or lacing up the sides) look great paired with denim shorts, jogger pants or distressed jeans. And the best choice for shoes are some sneakers or a low block heels.

I choose a silver, shiny off-the-shoulder, cut-out to the chase bodysuit with open back matched with black shorts and block heels.

So, what is your favorite? If you don’t have one go and look for it – it is a great piece to incorporate into your wardrobe, in a fashion way.

Vegetables or fruits motives for your summer outfits

Summer is a time for relaxing holidays and for long evenings spent with friends and family. It is a time to gather energy and warmth from the sun and for me there is no better way to do that than by the pool or at the beach. This year I am in Bulgaria in the wonderful St. Vlas resort – it is a holiday town located in the southern foothills of the Stara Planina Mountain, very near to the Black Sea coast. St. Vlas occupies the north part of Nessebar bay, only 10 km from the municipality center town of Nessebar, close to the largest Bulgarian seaside resort – Sunny beach.

I enjoy every day here, not only because the people and the location are great, but also because of all the friends I have here, of course without forgetting The Fashionway.

This summer everything with fruits and vegetables is a perfect goal. If you are wondering what kind of outfit to choose for the pool or the beach it is easy – 🍉 watermelon, pineapple, lemons or even peppers 🌶 motives could be great. My favorite is the watermelon, what about yours?

Floral feeling

Dresses that feature flowers and floral patterns are often our spring and summer staple. With this article, picking some floral patterns I want to show you how they bring out your confident femininity. Floral print dresses styled the right way and outerwear are easily worn and could make the look of gloom.

While a floral dress is great in theory, in fact it is often a challenge to pull off, so choosing the right floral patterns is important to fit your body and style.

Consider that larger flowers are more flattering to smaller body types – you should not go for oversized floral patterns if you have a shapely one because those may add a few kilos to your silhouette. If your body type is slim to average, try combining larger with smaller floral patterns.

Also, consider the background color of your floral dress – a bright background fits perfectly on a thinner body, while choosing a darker one will give you a more tailored and tapered look and the illusion of being slimmer. 

At the end a floral concept must fit to your mood, style and complete your femininity, of course in a fashionway.

Blogger’s life

People often ask me what is a real blogger’s life like actually and what am I doing all the time. As a blogger I constantly have a feeling I’m doing a thousand different things, 24/7. Those include for example writing articles and concepts, doing market research, taking care of my social networks, discussing outfits, do planning, organising and making my photo shoots, organising my travels, as well as many other things. Yes, the work and the responsibilities are a lot, but I am happy with this, as it also continuously brings me experience and knowledge, as well as many new friends and good contacts. And when you do something with your heart, like I do, things always work out at the end.

Reaching the conclusion that I have to do what makes me happy at my work, fulfils me not only professionally, but also personally – because gaining positive energy from what I do, as well as investing it back, I am able to pass it on to the people around me. I like how i feel after a long day of work – I might be exhausted, but at the same time happy that I have accomplished something. Every new project, each new thing, even if it is just a small step forward, for me is like a big leap.

To round it up: to achieve something good efforts are needed and such efforts require proper attitude – mine is always to give my best for what i love to do.

Black is the new white

Bright or dark, black or white – quite simply both.

There are always pretty good ideas how to match black and white, but the question that always stays there is how much exactly black and how much white. My answer to this would be – as much as I feel like it at the time – in such a way that you can’t say if one is more than the other.

This outfit was provoked by this wonderful coat, which I fell in love with. But instead of going for brighter colors for the rest, so the coat can pop out, I decided to dress me all black with the single exception of the white pullover. Black does not detract brightness, it also does not oppress nor gives any negative impression, on the contrary – it can give an outfit character in an original way, namely in a fashion way.

Fracomina touch

A simple outfit with a casual look, but matched with a Fracomina bag and shoes, makes heads turn. Fracomina is an Italian fashion brand with which I have the pleasure to work with since several years. It offers outstanding, contemporary clothing for women that fits every occasion and provides an interesting look.

It is also always a great pleasure for me to be at Fracomina shop and Showroom in Milan, like on these pictures.
