Disney Retro

With spring-cleaning, a lot of hidden treasures reveal themselves. When I come visit my mother in Abu Dhabi, I get the pleasure of rummaging through her closet and incorporating some of her pieces with my own to create interesting outfit combinations. Here I am rocking a Donald Duck and Daisy Duck Oversized shirt that she purchased from boutique in Switzerland many years back. It comes back to life as I pair it with my camel harem pants from Vince for an effortless breezy spring/summer attire.

The humidity makes it difficult to have non frizzy hair, instead surrendering to the fizziness and maintaining the curls using Miss Jessie’s Pillow soft curls styling lotion may yield affirmative results. Here I rock my frizz in a low ponytail and a loosely parted fringe.

I finished off my outfit by accessorizing lightly with black striped shades by Fendi and pointed black flats by Charles and Keith.

Electric Daydream

www.stilettosandsubstance.com

Spring is the season of daydream, excitement at the increased day’s length and at the sight of pretty blooming trees. The season inspires us to press the restart button on our lives and start on a new page. New floral prints make their way back to our wardrobes as we feel the need to express our new happiness in color.

For this spring season, Ted Baker has a series of vibrant floral prints. Here I am rocking my new neon floral print blazer from the electric daydream collection. This blazer with its neon undertones is a staple piece for spring due to its styling versatility. It can be dressed up when paired with a pencil skirt for an evening dinner/lounge attire or with a pair of skinny trousers for a more relaxed daytime brunch look.

To Avoid detraction from the statement floral blazer I decided to keep my accessorizing to a minimal. I finished off the look with my favorite white booties from Asos and a simple chain bracelet.
