When it comes to styling myself during the summer I tend to reach for dresses, skirts, or shorts. However, as we are transitioning slowly to the fall season, I decided to experiment with something different - my old favorite satin joggers by Israeli designer, Anya Fleet. To stick with style code proportions, I paired them with this gingham top that I love (on sale now, scroll down for link). I was heading out for a lunch meeting so I completed this look with a pair of fabulous mule sandal. Later on when I went for a stroll with my babes, I switched to white sneakers.Now can we please talk about this super cute hand fan by Israeli designer,Fancy Hand Fan?! Believe me, you need one of these! Next time you are brunching al fresco with the girls and you have you own personal hand fan on you and start receiving endless compliments, you will thank me for this post!
The best news is that I teamed up with Israeli designer, Fancy Hand Fans, to give one of these fans to one of my lucky followers. All you have to do is follow instructions on my Instagram@talikogan. Good luck!
As you know by now, my style has shifted over the last year from colors to basics. Black, white, and gray have taken over my wardrobe and more flats have found a place to call home in my closet. However, when I have a rough morning or a bad day, heels and colors swiftly return back into my life.
When I purchased these gorg heels by Ferragamo Capsule collection, I was actually having a pretty miserable day – the kind that calls for some retail therapy. I bought them on a cold winter day when I was dreaming of summer and sunshine and couldn’t wait to wear them!
When I have a bad day, I always reach for the most colorful shoes as they instantly lift my spirits and brighten my mood. The endless compliments I receive while wearing them doesn’t hurt either :wink:
Since these heels are a fashion statement unto themselves, I like to give them center stage so I am always sure to pair them with a simple look, usually keeping to one-tone with a neutral lip and messy braid to finish off this joyful, stylish, yet elegant look.
My little man rocking the Israeli brand, Ninell's. Aren’t jumpers for babies just the cutest? I adore them! I also love when Leo wears this jumper without a shirt underneath, it melts my heart. Too precious!
Who doesn't like gifts?!? I do, but after my 35th birthday I realized I should be the one picking out my own gifts. When I turned 35, my dear husband decided to give me a very fancy magnifying mirror. He thought that I would love looking into this beautiful mirror like a princess, but all I could see when I gazed into that mirror were my new wrinkles. LOL! This is when it was decided that even though I love surprises, I would strongly prefer to choose my own gifts, not to mention that I am very particular about my purchases especially when it comes to clothing and accessories.
Although I have had this conversation with my husband, he still took it upon himself to surprise me with some pieces from his most recent trip to Europe. This time, however, he gifted me with something that I absolutely adore and couldn’t wait to feature on my blog.
Let me introduce you to one of my new favorite additions, this gorgeous below the knee button-down shirt/cardigan/dust jacket. I am not usually fond of prints nor will you find any brown in my closet, but this piece seamlessly blends in with my wardrobe!
Jason told me it’s a cover up for the pool, but I have found it to be much more versatile. It’s simple to throw on not just over a swimsuit, but also denim shorts like I did here, or even a little white dress. It adds instant sophistication to a casual, but well put together outfit.
A friend of mine once told me that when she finds something that she loves, she sends her husband a picture of it so that he has options to choose from. Then when he gives it to her, it is still a surprise as she doesn't know which option he chose. Although I love this new top from Europe and the fact that Jason surprised me, I am going to adopt my friend’s method when it comes to gifts. How about you? How do you prefer to receive gifts?
This particular cardigan is not available online, but I found some other great options for you below that I love!
