For me, Sundays are sacred. I cherish it as the one day per week that is dedicated strictly to sleeping in, coffee runs with the boyfriend, watching movies and amazing food! We always have my sister and a small group of friends over for our “Sunday cook-outs”, where we try new recipes and spend most of the afternoon in the kitchen together. It has become a tradition and my favorite part of the week! On today’s menu: thai summer rolls, satay chicken with peanut sauce and homemade macarons for dessert. Obviously I don’t want to be in my sweats when we have people over, but I am also not a fan of dressing up for a casual day with friends and family. My go-to look is usually a comfy sweater, favorite jeans and whatever else I stumble upon. This week, I have teamed-up with Opus-Fashion for a casual Sunday look that I’d love to wear today! Stripes, comfy jeans and a cool hat! My favorite fashion equation is always “stick to basics and add one or two highlights” – in this case I feel like the hat makes the look complete! How do you guys like to spend your Sundays? Whatever it is you’re doing today – I hope you have an amazing 7th day of the week!
It’s been a while since the last Sunday Cravings, but with my birthday coming up next weekend there are plenty of things I am currently craving! Over on The Daily Dose I already shared my wishlist, and today I wanted to share a little outfit craving for the party next Saturday. Even though I definitely like feeling special on my birthday, I also want to be able to celebrate the night away without being stuck in a tight dress or uncomfortable clothes. Usually, for my birthdays I stick to a typical “Vicky outfit”. Black skinnies or leggings, a silky top, statement earrings or necklace and a clutch. Throw in a pair of amazing heels and the look is perfect – at least in my books! This year I’ll be celebrating at my favorite restaurant with an intimate family dinner, followed by a party at the bar with around 30 people. If I had a little extra change, these items found on GIRISSIMA.com would go straight into my shopping bag! What would you guys wear to your own birthday party?
I feel like sometimes one piece can make an entire outfit. As you guys know, I love timeless items in my wardrobe, which are usually not the most exciting. But if you add a big sparkly necklace or a cool patterned sweater, it can easily transform a look. So this week’s cravings (one day late – I know …) are all about those pieces. Take that amazing Hoss Intropia jacket for example, all you’d need with that are some black pumps, skinny jeans & a simple shirt underneath and you’re ready to go. Or the way those shorts are styled on the model: all black + one eye-catching piece. It is such a simple equation, but it works every time – trust me :) Which of these items is your favorite?
