Happy Friday, darlings! I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones! I’m SO glad you stopped by today because I’m demonstrating to you that… YES, you CAN wear this summer style staple during winter!
Maxi dresses, as we all know, are not only one of the most comfortable, flattering, and forgiving items of clothing to wear, but they’re also surprisingly versatile…in other words, why pack away your cute summer maxi’s just because winter is here?
The first trick is to think of your maxi dress as a long skirt! Simply look for layers you would normally pair your skirt with. Secondly, try to rely on boots, tights, or leggings to keep you cozy as the temperature drops. I added a faux fur vest to my dress to create an additional layer of warmth.
How would you style your maxi dress during winter?! I would love to hear from you!
As always, thanks so much for reading & have a fabulous weekend!
Today’s look represents my fond weakness for stripes (along with fun colors)! Anytime I spot the perfect striped piece it inevitably ends up in my closet. A striped dress is most certainly a MUST-HAVE because it’s such a great dress for a perfect night out on the town, don’t you agree?!
My striped dress was definitely love at first sight when I discovered it on Choies.com. Sometimes it’s hard to tell whether or not the item(s) you spot online are just a fab as the picture BUT this dress is truly great! It has a feminine cut, layered stripes, and an unexpected pop of yellow which creates a bit of an edge.
What are your fashion weaknesses?!
As always, thanks so much for reading & Merry Christmas! See you back here on Friday!

Let’s face it ladies: Sometimes getting dressed during winter can be a bit of a headache. Occasionally I get what I like to call a “dresser’s block” (yes, that’s the equivalent of writer’s block) – but luckily my midi skirt addiction always comes to the rescue! Today I’ve paired my red midi skirt with a fun yellow lace top from Choies. Midi skirts are most definitely my go-to choices when it comes to building the perfect outfit.
What are your must-have staples you cannot live without?! Please, share them with me by commenting below!
As always, thanks so much for reading & have a fabulous day!
Fashionpreneur – Noun: A woman who gracefully mixes fashion and entrepreneurship to build her empire.
I’m excited to collaborate with one of my favorite girls again, Ariana Pierce. She is the founder and owner behind Superstar Nail Lacquer, and the gal behind this awesome tee from her online accessories store, called Style Shoppe. I truly admire her – hence I’m super thrilled to collaborate with her again!
But let’s ponder on the term “Fashionpreneur” for a minute, shall we?! I spent 3 years digesting most of what the Westfaelische-Wilhelms University of Muenster, Germany had to offer but it didn’t fill me up. Still hungry, I packed my bags and decided to pursue my dream, and become a fashion designer in the United States (I graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelors of Fine Arts Degree in Fashion Design in 2010). Yes, I moved all the way from Europe to the United States.
As a new-ish blogger I can proudly say that I am a true European at heart. I’d much prefer wearing heels then wear flats. However, being a product of both the hardworking ethics of the United States, and the rather free spirited soul of Europe, I feel I blend both attributes into my fashion choices, as well as my daily style regimen.
Over the last 8 months into my blogging I’ve learned to develop my own style and NOT to believe in fads. I work really hard to build my blogging empire. We all know that building a fashion brand doesn’t happen overnight; yet it has been such a joy ride! I’m truly grateful for all of the exciting opportunities I’ve gotten, but let me tell you: Yes, it is a lot of work. As much fun as it is, it is a real part-time job (taking pictures, editing pictures, creating content, social media updates, etc.) next to my full-time corporate job. But it’s all worth it because of YOU. If it wasn’t for you, dear readers I truly wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing! So thank you for your continued support! I appreciate all of you so much!
As always, thanks so much for reading & a BIG THANK YOU to Ariana Pierce who gifted me with the “Fashionpreneur” tee.
How amazing is this yellow Choies dress?! Trust me, I am completely smitten! It’s so pretty, so feminine and SO lovely! Needless to say, I am obsessed with color, and, truth to be told, I don’t think I’ll ever stop wearing color (nor choosing fun and colorful background walls!). I hope you enjoy it as much as I do, and thank you again for reading! Your support means the world to me!
