Dress Down Your Pencil Skirt * Stylo 196♥


Have you ever want to dress down your work clothes to rock it on the weekend? I know I have…

Definitely not every single piece, but things like a cute dress, a pair of white pants, a pencil skirt?

I am one who keeps her office clothes separate from my weekend garments. Part of the reason it is because I want to look different when I am off from work.

But sometimes I happen to love something so much, that I would love to wear it outside the office. And this is exactly what happened this weekend.

I am a pencil skirt LOVERRR! I love how they fit and how they look on me. So I wanted to wear this pencil skirt on Saturday, and I didn’t know how, because I also did not feel like dressing up either…

What a dilemma! ha? Then I asked myself the question: Why can’t I dress it down?

I was going to present my new jewelry collection to some clients, and I wanted to look a bit chic but not dressed up at all…so I opted for creating this Stylo.

It is comfy, summery, stylish, casual and a bit edgy, because I am breaking the rules and also because I am mixing opposite little details like studs with lace, and also wearing a pretty decent amount of bling.

Regarding the Makeup, I tried for the first time this awesome REVLON Colorburst Balm Stain Lip Crayon, and I am in love with it!!! <3 It is highly pigmented and keeps my lips well moisturized.

I paired it with my NAKED Eyeshadow Palette, and the result is a softy glam makeup look.

This Stylo is perfect for any Summer afternoon outing, where you are not required to dress it up, but you, as usual, want to look pretty

Holiday Glam * Stylo 159♥

Ready for some Holiday Glam? Holiday Season is here! And it’s time to start prepping for this amazing time of the year.

I decided to come up with some holiday outfit ideas, like mix of fabrics, colors and patterns, that could be paired in order to create a glam chic holiday look.

This week I chose to combine leopard with claret, as well as satin with lace, to create a super glam look that would be perfect for the Holidays.

I am also a lover of turtlenecks as well as pencil skirts, so I think both look great together, because they give you a very ladylike and elegant look.

I chose to put my hair on a ponytail with a split in the middle. I think this simple hairdo took my Stylo to a whole new level.

The Makeup came out amazingly beautiful. I mixed black with shiny beige to obtain this subtle smoky eyes ♥

All the Jewelry I am wearing is part of my new collection that will be available soon at Lakshmi’s Closet.

Tribalism – Tribal Style * Stylo 139♥

Tribalism is the result of combining tribal key elements, like this so eye-catching high rise pencil midi skirt, a colorful tribal statement necklace and bracelet.

I had two events to attend this weekend, both on the same day. One was a home bachelorette party and the other one was a birthday party at a club. I needed to come up with a look that would work for both places.

So at first I was looking for a dress, but I soon changed my mind when I went to Love Culture and saw this sexy and elegant midi skirt.

I quickly looked for a matching top, and I found this bow back crop top in royal blue, which matched perfectly with my skirt.

I decided then to add tribal accessories and black heels and bag, to make it look more of a clubbing look, because I think black is the number one color to go out clubbing (that’s just my opinion 😉 ).

I got a lot of compliments; everyone loved my skirt and also the accessories.

I ended up not going to the club, because of timing issues, but I had a great time overall. I will definitely make it up to my beautiful cousin, by celebrating with her one of these days.

Corporate Mondays: Peter Pan Style Blouse and High Waisted Pencil Skirt

My Monday actually went by fast! A lot of work to do and still a lot to learn from my new position. This morning I checked my wardrobe and went for beige and black, wearing a super elegant and ladylike high waisted black pencil skirt along with one of my favorite blouses, a peter pan style collar top in beige and black. Being that the top is made out of lace fabric, I am wearing a beige cami under it, making sure I am definitely covered, keeping it professional. I am wearing my regular black pumps along with a beige bag. I left my hair loose wearing neutral eyeshadow colors paired with a lilac lipstick. I am also wearing minimal accessories. I love this beige and black combination, this is a proof that you could still make a statement even by wearing neutral basic colors.

Stylo of the Week 67♥ *Berry Much Love* Valentine’s Day Outfit Tutorial

February is already here and Valentine’s Day with it. I figured I should come up with a Valentine’s Day Outfit to give you some ideas in case you are looking for something to wear on that special day. My Stylo for V-Day is a combination of two styles. I wanted to mix the romantic and the vintage styles together to see what would come out and this is what I created. I also mixed the two official Valentine’s Day colors: Pink & Red. So I would say the pink, the pearls & flower accessories add the romantic touch, while the red along with the retro hairstyle and makeup add the vintage influence. I also love the fact that this outfit in its two versions favors any figure as it enhances the silhouette with the use of the peplum top and the slim pants / pencil skirt. It makes you look slimmer and taller defining your waist as well. At the beginning I wasn’t really sure if that combination would work, but I must confess I am really thrilled with the outcome… I think the pink makes this Valentine’s Day Outfit a very sweet and delicate one, versus the sexiness and the exotic look that the red contributes with. I can’t wait to wear this Stylo on Valentine’s Day 😉
