Wearing total white

Even if they say that the total white look has a monotonous impression, personally I like it very much. Also adding some stylish accessories can make the boring look come to back life, which will then not only highlight the temperament of the white but also enhance your individuality.

For this wonderful easy breezy jumpsuit I choose one of my favorite „Lady Di“ hats with a wide brim, fancy eyeglasses, white transparent shoes and this total hit bag – vintage white bamboo arc clutch bag. This half-moon bag is a great edition of 1960s vintage Japanese bamboo picnic bag – the original vintage version of Cult Gaia’s super trendy bag.

One could say this bag is too small, not comfortable etc., but I like it so much that I can wear it with any outfit and it will immediately make the looks great. I can just some add heels, shorts or skirt with any off the shoulder top and go out, of course in a fashion way.

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.

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?

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.

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?
