The sun raising low and roughly half in the sky, shinning in copper and gold tones and warming us with the last rays we can steal from the gone summer, has been what inspired this outfit of the week. We’re still on time for looks like this, soft and warm in color but still fresh enough to ask the sun for one last favor.
When I was quite a young teenager I went through another one of those fashion eras of mine where all things baroque fascinated me. Something still remains of that era (little things always cling around forever in ourselves, nothing ever happens for nothing or goes unnoticed) and I guess that’s why I wanted to make this baroque skirt the main piece of today’s outfit.
But today’s outfit is more much charming than this, as I’ve been lucky enough that the great photographer Maria Fernanadez from Chio Photography has agreed to collaborate with me for these spectacular pictures. You have to become a reader of her blog and website because she also carries very special giveaways and has a lovely instagram. All of October’s outfits photography (and hopefully she will stick with me!) will be in her hands :) What beautiful collaborations happen thanks to this Deseo family!
And going back to the baroque skirt, this type of structured and full piece is ideal for strawberry-type body figures where the legs are very nice but there is a flat bottom. With this style you will achieve balance in your body giving you more volume in the bottom half while showing your beautiful legs.
If you want to use a piece of baroque inspiration like this, leave the rest of the outfit without any prints or bright colours to avoid overload. Also a somewhat casual shirt like this with the sleeves rolled up ease down the sobriety of the look to avoid making you look too serious or too dressed up for a normal day!
On the same line, if you change the clutch for a larger bag you can completely turn this outfit into a ladylike look for every day work in one of those days where you feel extra feminine.
Oh, and Maria, Deseo girls, you’ve been introduced. This is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Let’s welcome Maria!
