FALL STYLE: SWEATER DRESS


I can't believe summer is almost over, I can't believe I'm back in Delaware already, I can't believe I'm back at school and fall is just around the corner!!! I guess it's safe to say I'm not the biggest fan of fall season but to be honest, I just always feel like I'm never (mentally) prepared for it, it comes around to soon! You feel me? I hope I'm not the only one!

With all the fall season trends and inspirations around, yet again, I thought of my go to pieces. I'm such a cliche, I usually just go for dark colors and my all time favorite grey. To switch things up a little, this time around, I decided to break in the little light turquoise sweater dress, I got from H&M
This $10 deal simply could not pass me by unnoticed. 
I think material of the dress is thick enough and perfect for the early fall. I actually worn this little number to a wedding in San Francisco, because it's never too warm over there in summer, or should I say, you just never know what you're going to get. :) Needless to say, I was right.

Oh, and the fringe cross bag, in case you were wondering... was another $10, courtesy of ROSS.

CC HAIR EXTENSIONS

Today I wanted to introduce you guys to new products I have been recently looking into.

It's been almost a year since I cut my hair into a lob, and although I love changes, I've been looking forward to getting my long hair back! I know there are other ways of getting the results you want faster, and that's when hair extensions come into play!

I have been recently contacted by CC HAIR EXTENSIONSand I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to learn more about their products life savers. 



Probably the most popular one and the product you're already familiar with. CC Hair Extensions carries a variety of clip ins, and you can shop their products depending on the length you want (15 through 28 inches), weight (70-80g, 120g, 140g or 160g), texture of the hair you need or the color (over 15 shades!). Also, all of their hair extensions are made of top quality 100 % Indian remy hair, which makes the whole experience so much better and easier.



I have never heard of these products, but apparently micro loop hair extensions are the most popular among African-American women, although can be used by everybody. If you have thin or short hair, these products are supposed to work wonders on you. As there's no need to use heat or adhesives on them, micro loops should cause less damage on your hair. 




Also called hair weft, this product guarantees a silky feeling, no shedding and it's tangle free! Isn't it what we all strive for?!


You should also check out CC Hair Extension's BLOG section, where they share tips and teach you practical techniques on how to use hair extensions the right way.



What about you? Have you ever used hair extensions?
 I would love to hear about your experience!

MAKING A STATEMENT WITH FRESHPAIR

I recently shared with You a TREND ALERT post (here) about neck scarves, and noticed you really enjoyed reading it. I decided these kind of mood boards / inspirations will appear more often here on my blog, because I feel we should all strive to inspire each other, especially if you stop by here because you have similar interests  and/or taste.

I was recently contacted by FRESHPAIR - one of the largest online retailers for men's and women's underwear - to write a post about how I like to make my lingerie a focal point of the outfit. I thought it's a perfect opportunity to share yet another inspiration post with you, and because Freshpair has many wonderful pieces, this was a very fun and creative writing process!
Let's begin, shall we?



Naturally, I have to start with the most comfortable lingerie you'll ever wear! I literally live in those! I think these bralettes are the best for those of you, who really can't wait to take your bra off at the end of the day... With a wire - free bralette like this one from Freshpair, you won't even know you have anything on! I also love a delicate lace trim on the top because it's just enough to make a statement. 

See how I styled my looks wearing same thing below!


It doesn't have to be summer to make a statement with your underwear! Few months back I paired my wire - free bralette with a sweater. The key is to have one with a plunging neckline. This boys club / tennis sweater from Rue 21 is my absolute favorite! See the whole post HERE.


More recently, I paired my new Target blouse with the same wire - free bralette in this look. Hot summer days call for unbuttoning that extra button in our shirts, am I right?! Read the post HERE.


Soft Cup Bralette - red  /  black


For a little sexier bra, I would recommend these soft cup bralettes. Because there's much more lace, that means more to play around with! And it's all up to you how much you show off , whatever you feel comfortable with.





Here's my most recent look where I styled a soft cup bralette similar to the ones above. When I bought this Target army green moto vest, I instantly thought of pairing it with a pretty lace bra. See more photos HERE.


You can also opt to show just a side of your lace bralette, a little side boob action never hurt nobody!




If you don't like showing your cleavage too much, you can try playing with just straps. There's so many options right now for displaying this feature of your bra, it's not about hiding your straps anymore for sure! Below two looks in which I intended this feature to be the focal point of my outfit.

You can even make a statement with your workout gear like I did when I went hiking in L.A.! 
More details HERE.



Speaking of a workout gear... Another comfortable wear are definitely these sports bra. The one on the left you MUST be familiar with by now. #MYCALVINS are trending like crazy and there's no stopping them! 




Let's not forget about bodysuits! This one in particular you can pair with any kind of skirt, shorts or dressy pants. Options are endless! Big fashion statement guaranteed!



I also feel like this piece could make a huge statement if you paired it with a dramatic skirt, the one that makes you feel like you're going to a gala. A modern princess moment!

And how is Kelly from Saved by the Bell rocking her 90's outfit for an inspiration?! 


For more options, feel free to check out FRESHPAIR's BRA section HERE!


P.S. Thank You so much for reading and all Your sweet comments you leave behind! I truly appreciate You all taking time to stop by and share Your opinions with me. I hope You enjoy these recent TREND / INSPIRATIONS mood boards I've been preparing. I have definitely more of them to come so stay tuned!

Love,

#INSTAWEEK

Oh, what my life would be without traveling, I do not even want to imagine! This summer has been crazy with me being all over the place and I absolutely love it! Traveling two coasts back and forth may be daunting but to be able to get the most of those two places, see how your life can be different depending on where you live, is just precious to me.

This Instagram roundup is a bit overdue but I just wanted to collect all of the photos from the last three weeks to give you a better idea of what's been going on!

You can also follow me on Instagram day to day under @shenaniganska.

My first weekend in San Francisco and I could not contain my excitement! I love this city wholeheartedly and can't stop imagining living there one of these days...
I wrote a whole post about this fun DRESSLINK palm tree print cut out top, you can read it here.

One of the many amazingly picturesque places in San Francisco - TWIN PEAKS. More photos here.

One of the looks that appeared on the blog and this one was quite a challenge! It's a bit out of my comfort zone to wear full on color outfit, not to mention pattern on pattern! Read more about it here.
Off to Cape Cod, Massachusetts!
I've been to Boston once before (read a post about it here) but this time it was in the summer and that makes such a different when you're on the East Coast! ;)
This year I got to do a fun photo shoot in Boston for my birthday and then celebrate the actual day on Cape Cod! Life doesn't get better than this! See more photos here.


10 days on Cape Cod meant many days spent on the beach, countless amounts of clam chowder, lobster rolls, seafood in general (!), and the most beautiful sunsets!
On my birthday we ventured out to Provincetown, Mass., for dinner. Short walk through the town resulted in finding many adorable houses, just like this one. 
The peacefulness of this place was everything I needed and more. For last few days we stayed at Chatham Bars Inn and it was wonderful. Keep an eye out for a full post about this place!
Back to the Napa Valley and life has never been better! 
Can I stay here forever?!
