4 SHOE STYLES TO BUY THIS FALL

August 22, 2016


As I was organizing and updating my wardrobe with a few fall staples, I started thinking about which particular fall shoe styles I tend to wear the most. Despite the abundance of cute shoes out there, there were exactly 4 styles that came to mind right away. What is it that makes these particular styles my staples? Well, I think that it's really important to have a versatile shoe wardrobe complete with timeless pieces that make you look effortlessly pulled together and add a perfect finishing touch to any fall outfit, and these 4 pairs do exactly that! And so, since I haven't done a must have shoe post for this season yet, I thought it'd be fun to talk about the 4 pairs I will be practically living in this autumn.


MINT IN MALUBU

August 19, 2016


Good morning, Everyone! Just wanted to say a quick hello and share a few images of this casual outfit I wore in Malibu recently. Most of what I'm wearing in this post you've seen before, especially these One Teaspoon shorts ( previously worn here & here ) and my Chloe Inez bag ( last spotted here ) which I've been wearing pretty much non stop all summer long, but the mint crop top is brand new and already well on it's way to becoming of of my favorites. Obviously love the color! You know me, I'm obsessed with mint! But also, love the off-the-shoulder/on-the-shoulder option which sort of makes it two tops in one:)!


BLOGLOVIN' BEST PHOTOGRAPHY NOMINATION

August 17, 2016


Good morning, Everyone! So... I have some really wonderful and exciting news to share with you guys! VivaLuxury received a Bloglovin' Awards nomination in the Best Photography category! 

This came as a complete surprise, and I can't even begin to tell you how honored we are to be nominated! When Emil and I started VivaLuxury a little over 5 years ago, we came into the world of Fashion and Photography from completely different backgrounds, and so for us, more than anything else, it's been a wonderful learning and growing experience. Because of VivaLuxury, we found ourselves, we found a wonderful creative outlet and really, a way do what we love for a living! 


DOMINO

August 15, 2016


Good morning and happy Monday, Everyone! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! I got the dress I'm wearing in today's post a few weeks ago to take to Italy with me, but just couldn't resist wearing it a bit early! You know me, I have absolutely zero self control when it comes to waiting to wear something new and cute. So, when Emil and I got an invitation to a casual dinner party, I figured that a cute white mini was the perfect thing to wear!


HOW TO ORGANIZE YOUR JEWELRY LIKE A PRO

August 12, 2016


It's been quite a while since I've done a post dedicated to how I like to store my jewelry. Well, almost 3 years to be exact ( see the previous one I've done here ). And so, as I was playing with my jewelry box the other day, I though it'd be fun to share a few tips and tricks I use to keep my collection of sparkly things organized. 


CHASING AWAY THE BLUES

August 11, 2016


Why is it that summers always fly by in a blink of an eye? As I was going through yet another batch of "back to school" entitled emails the other day, I honestly found it hard to accept that it's practically the middle of August and whether I like it or not, summer is drawing to an end, and fall is approaching fast... Can you believe it? I know I definitely can't!

Though I don't hate autumn in general, in fact, there are some great things about it, something about summer ending, always gets me a little blue. The one thing that makes this transition a little more fun is updating my wardrobe with a few fall-appropriate accessories ( after all, isn't shopping a cure for everything?:) And since a pair of shoes or a cute bag always make my day, I've been chasing away the blues by stocking up on a few pieces I can wear now and later!


MY STYLE MOTTO

August 8, 2016


When it comes to style, I have but a single motto I adhere to religiously - wear only what feels good on, and what makes you feel good! What I mean by feels good on is that comfort is always at the top of my priorities. I can't imagine feeling good wearing something that isn't comfortable. 

I have to admit that in the past, I've made a mistake of buying pieces that had great hanger appeal but weren't necessarily comfortable, and all of them suffered the same fate. After a few futile attempts to convince myself I could get over itchy fabric or restricting silhouettes, I would eventually give up and move those pieces to the back of my closet, where they would remain never to be worn again. So eventually, I learned my lesson! If it doesn't feel good on, I don't buy it!
