Pastel Leather Skirt

In early Spring I think that butter-soft leather skirts [ there are loads of leathers and faux leathers out there right now which are buttery soft] in fresh pastel hues can provide a seriously chic look with a certain edge. They are perfect for working a ladylike look [a sophisticated way to go about pastel is to pair it with nudes you’ll look like a star] or if you want to convey that certain badass vibe but still look polished and classy, adding  finesse and urbanity to an otherwise sweet colorful ensemble [an unexpected fabric like a patent leather vinyl skirt gives you an extra edge].The possibilities for spring’s pastel leather skirts are endless and can carry you through any occasion, day to night, in great style. Now go get dressed and hit the streets in your loveliest pastel!

In The Mood For

{adding red fruits to my daily breakfast - powerful antioxidant}

April is a month full of friends' anniversaries; my own included it's 10 anniversaries of people close to my heart, which translates into attending a lot of parties and giving many gifts.  I've always loved giving a gift to those I treasure and to get the satisfaction of seeing their face light up and knowing that I have made them a little more happy that minute, regardless of what I may get in return. This naturally forces me to make a budget, but that doesn't mean that I put less care into it. It's rather the opposite so that my friend will be really happy to see that I have put my time and effort just for him/her. Today's my bestie's Sofia birthday and I wish her the very best in life.Wish you a nice weekend and if it's the case the greatest party! I'm in the mood for...
