Hot pink dress in the hot summer

I love the hot summer weather – I’m a real summer child and would like that the summer never ends so I can endlessly wear my summer outfits.

My outfit today is a wonderful dress from the fashion brand „Imane“ with head designer Antoniya Stoyanova who was the designer Nr. 1 for 2018 in Bulgaria. They offer women’s clothing on par with the latest world fashion trends. The collections cover both every day as well as evening attire – they have something for everyone and for every taste – classic, extravagant or casual.

I am so happy to wear this great dress with airy, light and freely falling material which is so comfortable to wear, especially on hot days. At the same time it makes you look super elegant and feminine, perfect for a day out. 

I wear it with a matching 🧢 cap, one of my favorite Steve Madden block heels 👠 from Humanic and a transparent watermelon 🍉 formed bag, as the transparent bags are a total trend this summer.

A simple summer outfit: denim skirt-shorts and a palm printed shirt

It is time to share the next outfit from my holiday in St. Vlas with you. It is the kind of outfit I was wearing almost every day, and I will probably be wearing it again once next summer.

Denim shorts or skirts in blue, black and white are summer essentials and I do have a few options in my wardrobe. I would always suggest having at least one pair in each of these three colours as they are the perfect base for every summer outfit. They are quite simple, but that also makes them easy to combine. You actually can match denim shorts with everything. The simplest combination is the one with a simple t-shirt or top.

To make an outfit with a pair of denim shorts more interesting, add details – accessories such as a belt, a hat, jewellery or a beach bag. Or wear a white shirt with an interesting cut or details such as ruffles, cut-outs or a print.

In this outfit I added to my skirt-shorts a printed shirt – it by itself is already an eye-catcher thanks to the palm tree print, the cut-off sleeves, as well as the wrapped front and the knotted edges. There’s no need to add many more accessories to make this outfit appear more interesting, but I wanted to go all-in that day – hence I put on my comfortable flip-flops, favourite sunglasses and finished with a cactus 🌵necklace, all in a fashion way.

Say yes to the fruits

Fruit prints are very popular this season, so today I’m going to talk about incorporating them into your outfits. The most common patterns you are seeing this summer are the citrus ones! Lemons, oranges and limes are making their way onto dresses, tops, and accessories.

You can pair very easily a fruit print top with shorts or skirt and feel casual enough to be comfortable yet at the same time stylish.

But the trick to making fruit prints look chic and not overdone is keeping the rest of your outfit less busy. For example, when trying to pair one of your fruit-emblazoned pieces with a pair of shorts, jeans, skirt or capris choose them in one color and a maximum of  two appropriate colors for the accessories. And no matter high heels, flats or wedges try to feel comfortable and in a fashion way!

My favorite fruit piece this summer is a fruit top, what is yours?

Finding favorite summer „uniforms“

Summer is in full swing and one of my favorite go-to daily uniforms is definitely the cut off jeans shorts and a strap top. They are easy to throw on, no-hassle and there are really many different cute ones out there in the shops. I especially like the jeans shorts with decorations like patches, sequins or paintings. In the upcoming articles I will also show you another of my favorite summer outfits.

And remember – do not complain how hot it is in the summer and don’t think that the contents of your closet feel extremely unapproachable – there are always many cute summer outfits to find no matter if it is just simply shorts with a top or even something more simple. Much more important than wondering about that, is feeling good and always if possible in your fashionway.

Of course don’t forget the accessories – my favorite for this summer are the ones in neon pink and green colors and in fruit forms – I am in love with my transparent watermelon 🍉 bag and Ananas 🍍 bracelet.

Would you wear your swimsuits 365 days a year?

With this post I will continue the topic of my previous one – namely swimsuits. I already wrote that I’m not a bikinis fan, but I like summer so much and dream to live somewhere where the summer lasts forever, that I keep asking myself – what would it be like to wear bikinis 365 days a year?

I guess it would be a challenge, but one that maybe one day I will be able to take up. I would then wear not just one-pieces, but any kind I could find – different sets, combinations, colors and forms. Here I chose a set where the top highlights the breasts, while the bottom part gently highlights the curves of the body. The color of course is highly important – even if the model is great, if its not in the correct color it looses the effect.

Isn’t it true that some of the most required things you need for a great beach day is a slay bikini set to show off your beautiful unique body and your good mood. But how is the good mood coming – when you feel good and look nice in a fashionway. Don’t forget also to pick a good pareo – my personal favorite pareo color is black.

One-piece swimsuit or bikinis?

I am so super excited about today’s post, because while normally I write about clothes – today it’s about swimsuits. As you know, I travelled to the Black sea in Bulgaria and one of my favorite parts of getting ready for the trip is picking out the beach attires. It is hard for me to find a swimsuit I like because honestly I am not a bikinis fan – I usually wear tankinis or one-piece. Over the years, I’ve found that if I look in the right places and pick the right brands, I can find swimsuits that can really make me feel self confident and pretty.

It’s really comfortable and while I am not so eager to lay on the beach, for swimming it’s perfect .

Moreover this year the one-piece swimsuits have somehow become a fashion trend. It’s so super hard to find one-pieces that are both modest while still sexy and make you look young. So I have hunted down my faves and am sharing them all with you in this and the articles to come!

What about you, are you more for bikinis or for one-piece? No matter what kind you’ll choose, think about how you feel better and match it in a fashionway.

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?

Vintage but trendy

Looking for a new look this summer and some style inspiration for creating a new outfit? I have for you an easy, casual proposal: why not a lovely holed or knitted top/tunic in a vintage look? I always thought clothes of a knitted lace type are too vintage and look like something from my grandma’s wardrobe. I am sure that every woman has something similar and know it very well. But they should not be underestimated – they are perfect for the summer and would work well with any high waisted skirt, shorts or pants. I personally chose the classic black color under it – high waisted shorts and a balconette. So, don’t wait – find your vintage knitted tunic and go for it – style it in fashionway!

Feeling purple

Today, I’m “showing-off” my beautiful purple dress from the amazing “Balina”, which is simply great! I am not a fan of wearing often elegant or formal dresses but sometimes for special occasions it gives me a nice feminine feeling. This dress has a modern design, nice for the summer with its no shoulder look and it’s just perfect for the city night, a cocktail evening or any formal occasion. Really gives you that confident flair. Moreover, I think for such a dress clean looks are just splendid.

I also wear with pleasure my great silver-gold shiny high heels from Humanic.

Hopefully you like today’s look and maybe you will also choose the trendy purple color for a future occasion, in a fashionway.

What I wore:

  • Balina dress
  • Humanic high heels

July pink try on with a floral touch

This post is all about one of my favorite outfits – jeans shorts with a no-shoulder cut top. A pair of simple shorts which are never out of fashion could be combined almost with every kind of shirt. I usually wear jeans in standard colors, but as the hot pink has been stepping up it’s game this spring and summer for my look today I chose shorts in this sweet color and a floral top with a matching star sewn on it. To complement the look I took one of my favorite „I love summer“ shoes, which have their own flower – fruit print, too.

What about you – are you keen on wearing jeans shorts in hot, sweet colors? Try it , during the summer every eye catching color brings great mood and good vibes!
