Sundaze outfit

You’ve got to live up to your mom’s expectations on Sundays. I think she has the veto right to decide which outfit you’re going to wear for lunch. I mean I’m not happy when she tells me that she doesn’t like my outfit and then I have to change it, (decision made by a slight hangover mind of Saturday night). But, Sunday is quality time with my family and you have to agree with everything either parent or sibling has to say. Done.
Fortunately, she didn’t say anything when I wore this beautiful checked black and white skirt and see through black chemise from GS stores—yeah, who said puffed skirts are for little girls?! And to complete the outfit, I added a vibrant colorful jacket and clutch to give this otherwise lazy morning a pinch of fun!
If you don’t usually play with colors and wear, for most of the times, monochrome colored outfits, I advise you to try adding a touch of vibrant color in just one element or accessory to pep up your style!

Blouse and skirt from GS stores, Boots from Chinese laundry (all available at GS stores); miumiu jacket, and Saint Laurent Paris clutch.

Every year,when winter comes closer, one rose or two blooms in my garden. As a kid, my mom would let me take it, but now I think that it is just too beautiful to take it away.

Aishti Fall/Winter Fashion Show 2014

The cold season is getting closer and closer here in Lebanon. Jackets have become the inevitable companion to go out and the cozy mood to chill at home besides a chimney has kicked in. That was also when Luxury retailer, Aishti, came to celebrate the season with a fashion show of the Fall/Winter collection and an art exhibition featuring young artists. I sat front row and shared all my favorite pieces off the runway on my blog Snapchat, (you can follow me at “prettycap”). Among my favorite items was this hooded fuzzy yet chic snow-white cape by Saint Laurent Paris.

On this occasion I chose to play with the little side details to impress. I was wearing a long T shirt from Alexander Wang’s collection for H&M, a Zara skirt, Ash shoes, and Chloe Paraty bag.
