Crochet All Over The Place

Happy Tuesday!! And happy… August? Seriously, time is flying so fast I start feeling that Christmas is around the corner!!

I have received tons of questions regarding the crochet skirt featured some days ago on my Instagram account. I have to tell you guys this is the most versatile piece in my closet!! I have used it at office and in the beach the same week, talking about simplicity!!! For crochet I recommend you to go basic and choose nude tones because they will be easier to match with other colors and prints. For a more formal look I like to match it with a white top or a baby blue blouse. Add some statement necklace and you will have a gorgeous outfit without any effort!

My skirt is an old Forever21 number but I am linking very similar styles so you can run and shop!!!!

Summer Trend | Ruffles for the Win

Happy Friday!!! Hope you are ready to enjoy the weekend!!!

When it comes to adopt new trends I am kind of picky. I have learned in a bad way that not all the trends are for me therefore when I find a trend that fits with my style I try to incorporate it in almost all the items on my closet. That happened to me with the ruffles. I have to be very honest with you guys, at the beginning I was not sure about this summer trend. I though it was going to make me look too girly or like a child (remember that I am not that tall!). However I gave it a try… and oh my gosh  I luckily did it because now I want ruffles everywhere!!

One tip, if you are a petite size like me choose small ruffles because in that way you are not going to look “eaten” by your clothes.

WELCOME TO CHIC & PETITE

 

Pinch me please!! Blog is finally live!! You can’t imagine how long I have dreamed about this moment!! I am so excited that I don’t want to bother you with so many words… let’s go directly to what it really matters: STYLE!!

 

 Dress: Zara (similar style herehere and here)| Wedges: BBB (similar style here) | Bag: Old (similar style here)

 

Off shoulder dresses have become my obsession lately! They are so versatile that I use them to go everywhere, from grocery store to a date night with the hubby. With only changing the accessories you will have outfits for every moment. So if you want an outfit for the evening just combine it with an ankle strap sandals and an statement clutch. I promise… you will look gorgeous!!

For a casual outfit I love to combine the off shoulder dress with wedges and a crossbody bag. You can use this outfit for a brunch, a coffee with friends, a barbecue, etc, etc, etc.

In this post I am wearing a dress from Zara; I saw it at the store at the beginning of the season and it was love at first sight. The design is so cute and the detail in the back is everything!! I am not lying if I say that I have used it almost every weekend!!

Hope you enjoyed this first post! Thanks for stopping by!!

Love, Truelany
