‘If there’s one thing I’m willing to bet on, It’s myself’ – Beyoncé
I love feeling like I can conquer the world and this outfit makes me feel exactly that way!
It is perfect for a dinner party, but you can just as easily use it for a Business meeting or a day at the office, just top it of with a black blazer.
Let’s start from the top.
On a sunny day I always like to wear sunglasses (although I don’t have as many as I’d like :D). Reason? First of all, because it completes your look, but most importantly, it protects your eyes, and to be honest, we all cringe our eyes a little when we’re in the sun (without sunglasses!) and that will just give us those awful wrinkles around our eyes in time, right? And we do not want that under any circumstances!
These ones I bought at Zalando and were about €50. They have this super cool cat eye effect which I love.
The blouse is white with black and blue stripes and is from Stradivarius. I think they only have 1 or 2 stores in Belgium ( and it’s not where i live *crying internally*), so I usually just buy half the store when I’m in Portugal or I buy it online. It is one of my favourite stores and their prices are super affordable. This blouse was around €18 and they have so many diferent ones! It’s quite hard to resist!
The leggings I’m wearing are also from Stradivarius. They have a leather look in the front and are a nice stretchy fabric in the back. They are super comfy and again super affordable! It gives my look just a little more ‘Girlboss’ vibes.
I chose for classic black pumps in a velvet coat, because of the shininess of the leggings, otherwise it would be just too much shine. These ones I bought in Portugal in a store called Seaside, which has so many amazing shoes and they were Made in Portugal, which made me love them even more ( trying to support my Country every once in a while 😉 )
For the finishing touch I chose my classic Louis Vuitton bag ( yes, it’s a real one!). This just gives it the ultimate classic, boss look. This one is not very affordable, but as some of you already know, I have a thing for designer bags. I don’t have a lot of them, but I do think that a good designer bag can sometimes make a big difference and really complete a look.
Here are some good substitutes for the Louis Vuitton bag if you do want to recreate this look:
