In this post, I'd like to share with you some of my OOTD looks that I took over the past week or so. Inspired by Whitney Port and her instagram, where she's posting her (very real) OOTD pics and also hosting a little competition (under the hashtag #whitiwore). I decided to join it as soon as I found out about it because I love Whitney Port's style and she was my style inspiration way before she even started her blog!
She's a new mommy (her son is about to turn 1) so she's very realistically sharing her mommy- day to day outfits and everyday (style, and other) struggles!
I also don't always have time to dress up and I have even less time to take outfit photos but that's why I quickly embraced this "mirror selfie" idea, it doesn't always have to be all professionally made and perfect, sometimes that's just not possible, with all other things going on in our lives!
I can't forget that the reason I started my blog/ vlog, years ago, was because of a pure joy and honest passion and things were so much easier back then, more real, less edited, less professional and to be honest, I liked that better!
So let me share with you a couple of my recent looks and then, I'll also show you some of my favourite OOTDs that Whitney has shared so far!
During the week, I stay at home with my son so there isn’t much to show, but on weekends when I work, I try to make an effort to put together a nice outfit. I’m already getting inspired by Whitney’s looks and I’m excited to see what are other people wearing too! This was my Saturday outfit for work. As I work long hours and always in motion, sneakers are a must! Dress is from H&M and seashell jewelry is from Croatia and quite old! I love to wear it as it reminds me my summer vacations are coming soon!
This was for work this past Sunday. Wide leg cropped pants are a big must have this season and these are very light and perfect for hot summer days! I got them at Zaful and the cropped top is from New Yorker and it’s perfect with high waisted pants. I had my hair braided in a fishtail because it was a bad hair day!
As I was going to film a video, but did not have much time to think about styling my outfit, I just threw on this lovely floral dress from H&M. I was alone at home with my little one so I didn’t have much time to film but I managed to make one video happen and now onto editing! Who likes this dress that I’m wearing?
Today I work long hours and this is my work outfit. I had to wear sneakers, otherwise my feet would hurt too much by the end of the day! Hubby kindly took these photos and our dog wanted to show off too ;-)
This is what I wore yesterday for work. I returned home after 10 p.m. so tired I couldn’t even make this quick post! Today I didn’t even bother getting dressed as we didn’t leave the house. Back to this outfit, hubby asked me if I joined the Italian police force LOL. Apparently, the Italian “carrabinieri” wear the same pants! I said that it’s incredible how trendy, chic and stylish the Italian police is :-D
This is what I wore yesterday for my son’s playdate with his little friend. They still don’t actually play with eachother but we took them for a stroll and my little son took a nap! I wore this cute tee from Zaful and comfy cotton shorts by H&M I’m sorry about the crappy quality of the photos, the lighting was just bad (non existent) I thought I should post anyway as it might serve you as an outfit inspo if you like it! Oh and I’m finally out of my sneakers and wearing my fave Zara espadrilles that I bought when I was pregnant. So comfy!
So far these are my OOTDs but I'm hoping to post more soon! This upcoming weekend I'm working, so I have to put in some effort to be presentable! As I'm writing these lines, I'm still in my pajamas and my little one is behind me, pulling my hand as he wants my undivided attention and a playmate! haha
