Casual Business Look

Blazer: Zara
Blouse: H&M
Jeans: Patricia Pepe
Pumps: Via Uno
Bag: Michael Kors
Necklace: HRH Collection

Here we go with another more casual look I wear to the office. I’m not a matching 2 piece suit girl so that's why I like to combine blazers with denim jeans and a buttom down blouse. Traditional navy blue mixed with white and pop of red and gold to loosen the conservative appearance.

Lil Miss Sunshine

Dress: Asos
Belt: Mango
Clutch: Mango
Heels: Asos
Necklace: Bijoux Brigitte
 I was so in love with the magenta double layered dress here I got especially for christmas from Asos that I got a summer version without sleeves. Love the lemon colour which is such a mood lifter paired with black accessoires. Which dress do you like better?

Lilac dress styled 2 different ways

Dress: Asos
Tunik: H&M
Belt: Mango
Clutch: H&M
Pmps: Via Uno
Necklace + bracelet: Seejewelry
Sunnies: H&M


It takes only one item to change the appearance of a business dress. Adding a white tunik takes the conservative away and let it appear in a more romantic playful light. Accentuated with the belt it almost looks like another Peplum top. Wanted to give it a change to Blazers and Cardigans.
That's one of the things I love most about fashion. Experimentation and playing around with different items, textures and colours. Which look do you prefer?

It's time for my lovely Sunflowers

Dress:  H&M
Blouse: Forever21
Necklace: Bijoux Brigitte
Belt: Asos
Shoes: JC Penny
Sunnies: H&M

Full of anticipation I was counting the days to take pictures in a sunflower field . I am such a flower girl (Peach Time; hippie-flower-power-girl), thats why it was an easy one to pick my blogname fleurani :-). Fleur for flowers in french and Ani as my nickname. Every morning when I drive to work I am passing a huuuuuuuuuuuuge sunflower field and it immediately lifts me in a super good mood. Sunflowers have the magic to put a smile on my face and can be so inspirational :-). It was a quick peek in the wardrobe to pull off this outfit. Yellow and blue are so cheerful complementary summer colours. When I first put this blue dress on, it felt so boring just by itself. The mustard ruffle blouse which my baby gave me for christmas pulled it off nicely. Love the outcome so much :-) Do you have special items that put a smile on your face?

This is how I style my favourite ruffled mustard blouse with a checked skirt in December. My man is my most beautiful accessoire obviously. The count down begins only 5 more sleeps till I get to see my love after 8 months of waiting <3

Peplum a la Chic

Peplum can be worn in so many ways and always adds thats feminine touch to every outfit. This time I have worn it with a peplum pencil skirt. Colourwise I kept it classic with black and white and accessoirized with my black pearl necklace that I rediscovered in my collection which is probably over 6 years old :-). I figured that peplum looks kinda incomplete without any necklaces, don't you think?
Which of the Peplum looks do you like best so far (Peplum in the mixPeplum ). Let me know!

Peplum and Aztec in the mix

Peplum: H&M
Aztec skirt: Bershka
Cap toe Pumps: Asos
Satchel: Boutique
Sunnies: H&M
Bracelet: H&M

Usually Peplum works wonders on so many body shapes but when an acquaintance told me I look as I have a bun in the oven I was like "yeah peplum even works for preggo women" hehe ;-) No, seriously,  I think it works perfectly with curves and underlines your female silhouette and makes your waist appear slim.In a previous post (here) I paired it with a tulip peplum skirt. This time I wanted to go  for a more modern and fun way and just to kill  two birds with one stone- pairing two of my favourite trends this summer- my aztec skirt and a basic peplum top. I have already taken pics for my next blogpost, where I will combine my peplum shirt with a pencil skirt. I haven't tried it with jeans or pants yet, have to try it out some time soon though and will let you know. This time I kept it pretty simple with the accessoires, my man got tired of my gold chain necklaces from HRH collection hahaha, also I think they always give an outfit that effortless finish touch ;-).
How do you style your peplum pieces?

PS: I first spotted this Peplum shirt on  my favourite bloger friend Jenny from Crazy Style Love (www.crazystylelove.com) and needed to get my hands on it. She has an amazing femine style and is such a sweet person, you have to check out her blog as well if you don't do it anyways hehe because she is AMAZING (invert high opera voice) :-)
OH and another super sweet Peplum queen is Bonnie from  Mini Me Style (www.minimestyle.com) one of my favourite daily blog reads as well :-). They both have one in common, where I can shout out my german phrase "Klein aber fein" which  means small but fine :-)

Have a great Thursday loves and thanks for stoping by, always puts a smile on my face :-)
