SUIT UP!

Oieee Hello Everyone, hope you are all doing fine and excited for today’s post.

I decide to bring it another trend alert, first because last week I mention I had two more following posts on the matter (click here to read it) and second ‘cause I found out I am pretty good at discovering fashion trends before they are a thing, not the case of today’s post tho.

So, for the last six months I’ve been obssessed with tailoring pants, been searching the internet all over for ideas of how to wear, that’s all because in January 2018 I bought this amazing pair at a thrift store in Florida, which it became one of my favorite pieces. (Click here for a ootd inspo I wore with it)

And then, this year I’ve been seeing a lot of pants similar from the ones I got, but in a set, as in a suit,  and the latest fashion weeks are proof that the trend is for real. Here are some ideas…

Classy, Sofisticated, empowering, and it can also be confortable and pretty. It can be styled however we want, and I personatly think it feels so mature.

As because it’s usually on a set, makes sense the two pieces are matching colors, another reason is monochrome is a thing now, and you can find out all about it in here. And both trends together might be my favorite new fashion thing, based on amazing pictures from my favorite influencers:

How to Monochrome, and All About What Can be the Easiste Fashion Trend for 2019!

Oieee! Hello everyone! we just change season and ohh how I love the feeling of starting something new, here where I live we’ve got flowers decoration the streets and trees full of new leaves, the days are starting to get longer and the weather has been changing. And I can’t help it, my mind is just happy and I am blooming with the spring.

For some, its the other delicious time of the year when leaves change colors, the weather gets chilli, the air smell like fireplaces and everything tast like pumpkin (gosh I miss that too!). But in one way or another, this time of the year also means new fashion trend, runaways inspirations, street styles everywhere and I couldn’t keep myself far away from the blog, so for this whole week I am gonna be talking about a few trends for the next season that are already in but are gonna blow peoples mind and closets in the next six months. Are you ready?

On todays post, we’re gonna go Monochromatic for the day! And I want strat it with a few questions: – what’s Monochrome? How to add it to your wardrobe/life? And what are some of the best inpirations?

  • WHAT’S MONOCHROME?

Its basicly a collor scheme with a few different shades, to be more specific here are what it means according to google: “it’s a object or image that reflects colors in  limite shades of colors and hues” or “means one color. Typically one color is presented in different values and intensities — or different shades of the single color.”

Good and simple examples of monocrhomatic in Fashion are an all jeans outfit or maybe dressing all in black. But of course it goes beyond that, and I am gonna show you guys!

monosamples-300x293
Pretty much like this
  • HOW TO ADD IT TO YOUR WARDROBE/LIFE?

That might be the easiest fashion trick ever, specially to those who find it difficult to wear/style collors. Who never said or never heard this sentence: “I would know what to wear with this shirt”? just cause its yellow, or this one: “That would go with anything I own”?

Yes, style collors in an outfit can be difficult if you don’t understand to much about it, or even if you don’t have such a crush on them. But monochrome definetly makes it easier, here’s what you gotta do:

  1. Pick a color you would like to wear, or maybe a collor piece of clothing you already own, like that yellow skirt sitting on your closet forever.
  2. Look for plain pieces of clothe in the same color, and you dont even have to hold yourself to the same shade of yellow from your skirt, you can mix and match with a pastel yellow, a dark mustard color, and maybe some brown shoes.
  3. Really go crazy about it, and style the way you want it: do overlaps, mix dark shades with light ones, pick risk collors like orange. Fall is a great seoson for orange, isn’t it?!
  4. Have fun and discover a whole new version of yourself!

  • WHAT ARE THE BEST INSPIRATIONS FOR IT?

This is SO my favorite part. You guys already know I am Pinterest crazy lady (and you can check all of my boards here), is where I get to know about new trends and also where I get all of my fashion inspirations from.

So, obviously, here are some of my favorite Pins od Monochromatic Outfits:

This three manage to get the exact same color for every single piece of clothing

This three mixed different shades, colors and even patterns for their monocrhomatic

 

Here’s an easy idea, which I ninttend to talk about it a little more over the week, Blazers are a thing now, and they usually already come matching the same collor with the pants. So the only thing you probabl have to do is find a neutral shirt to style with.

And here there’s a few bold ones with overlaps, collors not so similar and different textures!

In one way or another, I really loved the idea and can wait to apply it to my days. Also, can’t stop keep wondering about how to apply this to what I already have, for spring.

Are you guys willing to try it? which one was your favorite? let me know down bellow!

Trend Alert: Mismatching Nails

Oieee! Hello Everyone, I hope You all are feelling as great as myself today, my classes got cancelled so I slept late, took a long steamy shower, took good care of my hair and  skin, aaaand, did my nails. And let’s be honest, who doesnt feel much better after getting their manicure done?Something about it just makes me feel a hundred times prettier and happier, in some way.

And if basic nails already bring up my mood to another level, you guys can’t even imagine how happy I am about the last Nail Trend that’s all over my pinterest: Mismatch Nails.

Yes! First time I saw it, it looked silly and very childish, but let’s be honest: my soul is probably 5 y.o. so it didn’t take long until I fell in love, completly with it.

And also, there are some options to this mismatch trend that can help it look more mature, take a look:

img_1595img_1596img_1615

First time I tried those, I was very disappointed at it, cause it turned out a little weird, but after a better choice of colors, this second try, ended up cute, mature, pretty and very delicate.

img_1605

Here are the nail polish I used on my nails, but as they are brazilian products, right below, there’s a selection of some very similar colors you guys also use.

img_1614

The best thing about it, is that you can be totally spontaneous about it, mismatch the colors the way you most feel like it, mix your favorite colors, pic similar ones or even colors that you never though it would go togheter. In one way or another, I feel like we it’s a new way to re-invented ourselves. Take a look at some other ideas:

Another great thing about it, is that it can last over seasons, maybe by switching the bright colors into coffe/ nude tones, how about an orange dregadê  to match the pumpkin season, or red and green for christmas? I smeel great ideas coming for more posts like this, what do you guys think? Let me know in the coments…

Hope you guys enjoyed this post, don’t forget to follow me on Pinterest for more ideias.

OOTD: PLAID PANTS ARE UP AND HERES AN OUTFIT WITH IT

Oieee! Hello evEryone. How are you guys doing?  Today,  I wanted to bring a recent outfit that I wore for a saturday sunny -not so- winter day, cause it’s currently 70 degrees out here, even knowing it supposed to be cold right now.

Anyways, The main piece of  this outfit, it’s my new pair of plaid pants from Cotton On, honestly one of my favorite stores when it comes to find trend cool pieces.

Those are very beautiful comfy pants in neutral colors, such as beige, gray and black with a very discreet plaid pattern and a frontal ziper. It also has this openning on the bottom of each leg,and has a very mature look.

desenho 023fotos 006

I decided to add a black simple off shoulder top I own to create this outfit. I got this top a couple of years ago on a Zara Sale, it’s a very casual- chic and confortable top (which I usually don’t wear a bra with it) and I think it goes perfectly good with the outfit, the only thing I keep thinking it’s that would probably look nicer in a smaller size so it  looks a little less lose on the waist, but it’s okay.

I acessorized it with a black chocker, thats hasnt been out a lot lately (at least not in a black lace) but it does look cool with the top. A pair of white Adidas, that could be totally replaced with black sneaker or maybe an ankle boots.  Or, another amazing, and one of my favorite ideas, a pair of combat boots, only if I had one… haha

fotos 007

Because its a basic comfy-chic look, I styled with my Black with a pink inside Kate Spade Purse, and my Yankees hat, which it’s totally the key for this outfit.

fotos 001

Really in love with this ootd, and every single piece in particular. I keep dreaming about all the combinations I could do with these pants, and I am wondering what is your suggestion, what would YOU wear with it? Let me know in the comments

Also, don’t forget to follow me on social media for more outfit inspos. Got tons of looks on my Instagram feed and highlights, and even more inspirations on my pinterest account. Can’t wait to see you soon ❤

TOP 3 EDITTING APPS

Oieee! Hello Everyone, how are you guys doing? Today I want to write about one of the things I love to do the most on my phone: edit pictures. And because this is one of my favorite hobbies, I got to discover a few new apps in that last six months, that are now part of my days and can be a life changer for you too.

First of all, they are apps, for your phone, so there’s a limit of how good they can actually be.

But don’t worry, I promise I am gonna say nice things about them, eventually hahah. My point is, they are not professional plataforms like Photoshop or Lightroom, but they are amazing for daily edition or last minute posts, and they can be really fun.

So here we go:

  1. The Tezza App

No, couldnt start with anything else! I downloaded the Tezza App a few months ago, the app can be downloaded for free, but unless you pay for the good stuff on it, it gets very limited, hmm but honestly, it’s worth every cent. The Tezza App has great filter with great colors, all very warm, it has a few dust filter options as well, and if all of this isn’t enough, the Tezza App also has Templates and filters for videos, so it’s been a life saver for Instagram, which seems to never be able to create good filters for stories (#sorry Instagram, I love you, but Snapchat was always better at it).

all editted with “mood” preset, which is my favorite.

2. Meitu App

Definetly my latest obssesion! Meitu App is different from all other apps, it gives you the chance to play and get creative with your pictures: you can add glitter, emojis, flowers and butterflies with the magic brush. You can also change the backgroun for a beatiful Mosaic, can animate your pictures by adding movement to them. And now, with the latest update, you can also Auto Make up your pictures.

edited with magic brush tool

Auto make up correction, take a carefull look at my face.

On this video I add the rainbows with the magic brush and then animated the picture, all  using Meitu App.

3. Color Story

Last but not least, I got one of my oldest favorite apps. Color Story has very delicate presets, that helped me harmonize my feed for such a long time, with color but very light filters. One of my favorite tools are thee Effects, which brings this great light that you can only get when lens meet the sun..

So, tell me, which one is your favorite app, please comment so I can look for them 🙂

Let me tell you about Bright Swimwear…

Oieeeee! Hello Everyone, how was the weekend? i hope was full of happiness.

On todays post I want to do a little review on Bright Swimwear.

Around May, this brand got in touch with me through instagram for a partnership, and I instantly loved what they said, so I immedeately got into their website to check their products, and my first tough is that the products looked very neat, very basic but with bright trendy colors, but as I have tons of bikini’s already, I honestly only payed attention to the one piece bathing suits, because I was looking for a good one for a couple of years now, and they had this one model in a few plain colors, and also a few in colorful stripes, and I instantly put it in the bag.

Now they also have amazing colorful patterns in both one and two pieces…

I placed my order a litlle nervous because I had just got this dress from a New Zeland Brand and it took way to long to get to my house and when it came it looked terrible. But gladly Bright swimwear gave me the best experience ever, I am very happy that I had the chance to work with them, my bathing suit came in a exactly week, it’s gorgeous, very good quality, very bright colors, just amazing

13981a91-7148-4084-9734-caadb712db82

* This is the little preview I did on instagram stories, please follow me, I am always sharing everything first hand over there. *

Loved it so much, that even knowing is winter right now in Brazil I went to the beach because I couldn’t wait to wear it. And this is a little bit of how it looks:

1045cbbd-98eb-46ae-b265-58879d7f742504ccaed7-e768-44ee-a299-5de263e938a0dcbd4fe0-b088-4dbb-9fdf-0422c9a5aded

I ordered the Small size, because I am a small person, (5’2) and I’ve been wearing small sizes since forever, I still fit in some of my clothes from when I was 13. But I do have a large hip and butt, so the bottom part got me a little uncomfortable cause the whole thing kept coming up a little bit, so maybe I should have order a medium size, but I am not so sure about it. And another great thing about this one piece is that usually brands that are not brazilian have such huge bottoms for bathing suits, and this one is neither too big or too small, I think it’s a very decent size, so I was pretty happy with that too.

In general everything is really great, and pretty, made me feel very happy about me and my body, so I strongly recomend it. I also HAVE A DISCOUNT FOR YOU GUYS, you just need to add my code MINGRONE15 right at the moment you are placing your order.

f00bc4f7-3bda-46ea-91b4-12eead3ed101
All the pictures were taken in Ilha Bela, S’ao Paulo – Brazil

Another great thing about Bright Swimwear is that 10% of the money paid is donated to help saving the oceans.

I am all about brands that somehow help the enviroment and/or help people, brands with pourposes, brands that actually care, so I think this one deserver some atention, by clicking here you are gonna be redirectly to their website, take a look, use the code, and let me know what are your thoughts on that.

 

Hope you all enjoyed this post, don’t forget to let me know what did you think, and great week everyne!

What Happened to Your Life, and How to Find Yourself Again

Dear self,

Lately I feel like everything is a run, everybody is running to get somewhere, to be someone, to be noticed, when did we change from not wanted everybody talking about our lives, from telling everybody everything about us on social media?

life got so hectic, and yet we spend the whole day in our phones. We harldy haven been to parks, or museums, we never have time for firneds and family, we are so tired in the end of the day, but we dont feel productive at all.

I don`t knwo about you guys, but thats how I feel most of the time? I go to three different places, I clean my house, I go to college… But in the end of the day I didnt do everything I needed to, I haven seen or talk to any of my friends, I dont remember I word the teacher spoke in class, and there are still tons of things to do, but I am way to tired to even think about that.

And you know what, its been terribly stressfull, made me and anxious person, it`s even dissapointing.

What happend to the life I wanted for myself? Thta life where I study what I love the most and enjoyed, the life where I see my friends on the weekend, the life where I go home to relax and not to deal with a billion things, what happened to the gym I used to love to go but now I force myself to be there? Where did my life went?

I feel like I wished for so much, I lost track of what actually matters. Like I had to hit rock bottom to realized what I’ve been missing. And for you who feels the same on the other side of the screen, let’s do it again, let’s start over.

Everyday is a new day, and a new opportunity, and long 24 hours for everything, stop letting everything get in the way, stop crowding your routine with not important things, use your free time for your own stuff, and use the time you have to be stuck in the subway, or in the car for new readings, new songs, try a podcast, be inspired. Do everything with your heart, separate your day into the things that need to be done, and remember to take time to care for yourself.

Let life follow is own lead, let everything find its own place. Stop talking about the things you are not so sure about it, read more, dance more, film more, write more, draw more, meditate, go to yoga, find a sport, give attention to those next to you.

Life is beautiful and you can find your happy place in this world again, believe me.

Love,

Miss Mingrone.

 

3 Trend Decors for Your Room in 2019

We know that 2019 is only at the beggining an a lot can change untill the end of it, but I like to be dramatic okay?!

I am the type of person that does not know how to sit still, I like to keep finding things to do around the house, and I love to decorate new corners every now and then. I also love the change of seasons and found in that an excuse to redo my bedroom every three months.

I showed you guys my bedroom transformation for summer and this weekend I am gonna do everything all over again, so next weekend we might have a new video up on my chanel so don’t forget to subscribe.

But, in order to do that, I search a lot  for ideas, like wall decorations (I love hanging stuff up on the walls), plants, thing to add to my bedroom, and here are the most beautiful ones:

Hanging Plants:

Hunker | firstthymemom | gardenmissyou

etsy | board | grid 

When it comes to plants there’s not a lot to worry about, they look great however you decide to display them, but hanging them is the new boho touch your new house decor needs. I personally love the macramê art for plants, and loved even more the idea of using this combination in a clothing rack.

Macramê:

Speaking of it, I found a couple of great, I saw this one picture of a beautiful macramê hanging from a wood stick in a white wall, and now is the only thing I can think about. I found some at Zôdio, but didn’t buy it cause I am feeling very tempted to do one of my own. Check it out this amazing ones:

The grey one | Circle | Leaves

Mirror | Lamp

520c9d704d76e744405a02c446732f10

I love how clean and comfort it looks, I get kind of the same feeling as when you walk into a nursery room. Also the fact that you can made a milion types of decoration out of it it’s truly amazing: with braids, and leaves, by adding gems on it, and also the coice of wood to hold it can change so much of the style. I believe that one of these alone can be all the decoration you need for a room.

Tapestry:

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

The exactly same thing as #2, except that it isn’t. Currently at this semester in fashion college on my Textile Class, as part of my grade I have to present a tapestry of my own, there are so many different types of woof, and the varity of lines you can use are so extended, you can even not do one at all and just hang the lines. I am so happpy with this project and I will probably share with you guys next week, but for now I just wanted to share with you guys the idea of it.

Folk Pillows:

| 2 | 3

1 | 2 |

Nothing brings more the confy feeling than a good pillow right?! I collected some for you guys, that makes the gypsy me scream on the inside. So, which one do you like better?
