The Sol Compass: Christmas Dress with an Edge

Hi everyone, happy Monday! A few weeks ago, I took a poll on my Instagram asking what you all wanted to see more of this holiday season – casual or fancy outfits – and formal outfits took the win, so I started off with two velvet dresses in this post and a velvet tulle combo in this one! There will be plenty of casual outfits to come (plus this green sweater which pairs great with jeans!), but today I wanted to do a bit of a crossover between the two. If you have a formal event coming up but feel most comfortable in a moto jacket or stacked heels, this is the perfect marriage between the two. I found this gorgeous lace dress at Marshall’s, combined with TJMaxx, they are my two favorite places to find dresses – whether it’s for graduation season or the holidays! It is absolutely perfect on it’s own – I love the high neckline and lace sleeves – but to add a personal touch to it I think a black faux leather jacket and peep toe booties are the perfect way to add a little edge to an otherwise formal piece!

Thank you so much for reading, if you have any occasions coming up you want me to style an outfit for leave me a comment on this post! Have a great week!

It has been a few days since I have done a blog post. Sorry about that! I am in Philly for business and haven’t had much time to get anything together. I have never been around this city before. It reminds me a lot of NYC. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to go explore this afternoon, but I decided to stay in my hotel room to relax and catch up on some work. I also plan on doing my BBG workout that I missed last night! (oops)

This is what I wore this afternoon for meetings.I love the black and blue combo, and tights are my favorite layering piece for Fall. They can make rompers, dresses and shorts more appropriate for cooler weather. My heels are an older style but I have found a great dupe that are only $74! For the meeting, I did trade out the heels for a pair of black heeled booties, which Andi calls “Anna’s boots”… You know, Elsa’s sister. She insists on wearing them every day with her princess dresses. I hope she didn’t need them this week.. haha! I go home tomorrow morning and cannot wait to see Andi and Anthony. 🙂

How to Rock Colorful Toghts for Fall

EN :: BLOGTOBER 5 : Here we go! My blog finally turned into fall as well. I really love fall because I like wearing skirts in combination with ankle boots and leather jacket. What I love however more is Indian summer which is unfortunately not so common in Ireland. My Slovak family and friends though could enjoy it in full glory last days while Ireland was getting ready for the hurricane which was the theme number one in Ireland lately. Everything was closed today – schools, courts, shops, banks, etc. – to protect everyone. The part where I am living was luckily not so affected, but I have to say we had a strong wind throughout the day as well and I still can hear it. I really can´t imagine how it looked like somewhere in Cork or Wexford where it should hit in its biggest strength! I hope everyone is safe.
Well we were shooting this outfit last week and I decided to wear black and burgundy combination. Burgundy is definitely one of my favorite fall colors and it really belongs to this season. Very recently I bought these colorful tights and to be fair I had a problem to combine them with some pieces. That´s the reason why I stuck with the same color and I picked the burgundy shirt on top. I would definitely like it with some burgundy ankle boots to create some monochromatic look and elongate legs a little bit. Another tip is wearing over the knee boots and let the color show just a little bit to brighten your outfit up. As far as colors I would maybe combine them with some black, dark blue, grey or even mustard top! And I would not combine them with two or more different colors as the tights are a very noticeable piece catching others attention.
How about you? Do you wear colorful tights? And do you find them tricky to combine? ♥

SHORT RÉSUMÉ
combine the tights with pieces in the same color as tights and with black
if you want to add colors, pick one contrast color
do not combine them with two or more different colors to prevent yourselves from looking tastelessly
choose neutral black shoes or shoes in a same color as tights to optically elongate legs
if you are afraid to combine colorful tights in its all glory, try trendy over the knee boots and let them peek out just a little bit
those braver can choose all outfit pieces in similar colors and create extravagant monochromatic look “tone in tone”
remember that these are not rules just my opinions and tips…fashion has no boundaries and you can play with it accordance to your style 🙂

MARCH!

We start the countdown for spring. To celebrate the entry of the month, I propose an elegant and sophisticated outfit. A red dress with a knot in the front and sleeves three quarters.

Do you guess where it is from? And it is!
The new Almatrichi collection. Collection that has me totally in love. This dress is also in the classic black. This is for multiple occasions, from romantic dinners to cocktails and even more classic ceremonies such as a wedding.

And you, for what occasion would you wear a red dress?

Hello 2017 and hello all you visitors that continue to come back to my blog in this new year!
I hope you had a lovely time celebrating the New Year’s Eve, I wish that all your resolutions will be fulfilled this year, so let’s keep on positive!
The new year welcomed us with a massive freeze, for the past two days it has been incredibly cold here, the air crisp and the trees completely covered in white. We made this photos on the frozen lake in our local park actually, a place you normally cross by boat, but kids were skating and pushing each other across the ice with no fear. It’s that cold! My hands and feet were frozen within 10 minutes and I wished I had a thermos with hot tea so badly!
 Whenever this white Winter comes and the temperatures drop considerably, I am always covering myself up in this coat, it’s doubled up with faux fur on the inside and it keeps me so warm and it looks classy as well – you will never see me wearing a parka jacket, I tell you that!
 Keep warm guys and let’s make the new year a fabulous one!
