Experimenting outfits

Never tried painting, so I create outfits instead. Styling is another form of art I enjoy: breaking patterns, mixing colors & adding a final accessories touch! It often leads to a piece of art, and every time the result comes up different, as it’s basically mood oriented.

This outfit was picked randomly for a Sunday lunch. I built it around this gorgeous top I felt like I HAD to wear that day!mode-nomade-fashion-blog-2

Broke the top femininity with structured “work” pants I would never wear on weekends. Not the usual combination but the colors combined really well with that autumn mood creating an edgy look.mode-nomade-fashion-blog-7mode-nomade-fashion-blog-8

Even if it’s important to follow new trends, don’t let yourself get caught by them to end up looking like everyone else. Try experimenting with your outfits instead, mix the old and the new & dress for your personality!mode-nomade-fashion-blog-3

A crush for the city

I’ve been through a love/hate relationship for Beirut. As I lived most of my life in the mountains, they have always been the closest to my heart.

But growing up, especially during my college years, I have grown love for the city as I lived there for a couple of years.

A love I never expected to have for the crowded streets & the things I used to hate became a different kind of inspiration.

The part I don’t like is still there, but I’ve found ways to enjoy my fondness to Beirut:

Walk through it: With the traffic of the city, the only way to enjoy it is to park your car somewhere & walk. Capture new things & discover the small details!

Schedule it: Beirut has a lot of mood lifting & inspirational activities to offer. Things to be experimented differently from day to night. So try to alternate timing / activities as much as possible to keep that love!

A simple morning walk, a tasty cup of coffee while finishing some tasks, late lunch with your friends or drinks with your co-workers. A whole range of activities through day & night to fit everyone, without forgetting that everything can be done in the same area. So can you help not falling in love with Beirut?

Merry christmas!

Christmas is not just about gifts & clothes, but a beautiful outfit will reflect the beauty of this season! A season full of positivity, where we search for peace, celebrating Jesus birth.
For the occasion, i picked a variety of outfits for every style. I don’t have a specific dress code for christmas i just try not to wear a lot of black & stay warm!

So with a heart full of love i wish you a blessed christmas with your families and beloved ones remembering that material things don’t worth much without the people behind them! Embrace the christmas spirit all year long & always pray and help the less fortunate!

Simple stroll

With the heavy schedules we are living in we tend to forget the beauty of simple things, like the beauty of a simple walk & a simple outfit.

I’m a mountain kind of girl so I tend to go and discover natural places whenever I can, like I did on this photo shoot.The outfit is about simplicity, a lot of girls tend to overdo their outfits trying to follow trends, and they forget that sometimes less is more. I am pairing black leggings with a long-sleeve plaid shirt, and I added a quilted gilet to complete the look. I didn’t accessorize at all except for good sunglasses and a pair of glittery shoes. I was in a hurry and as I was going to the mountains I wanted to go light and enjoy the trip.

Touch of autumn

It seems that this autumn the weather is just moody. We are having days with heavy rain, and then days with warm sunshine! The positive side of this is that we can mix between our winter and summer wardrobe and come up with new outfits by adding small details.

In this shoot I created denim on denim look by pairing washed out denim to white shorts and a denim blouse. The shorts and blouse have the same denim color; it looks like I’m a wearing a denim jumpsuit! I added a warm touch of color with a slim belt and a fur bag. To finish up the look a statement necklace and white pumps!

My tip for wearing shorts and stay classy is to play on length and layers. The short are a little bit funky meanwhile the long sleeve blouse, buttoned up, keeps the outfit balanced and warm.

Ripped & Tucked

In the earlier post “redhead by choice” I talked about my new hair color, changed from light brown to Mahogany red, so I went for an unplanned casual photo shoot just to see how it looks. I was wearing light colors to celebrate the weather that was still warm last week. A casual pale blue T-shirt that I bought without trying it on & it turned out to be a little bit loose. I rolled up the sleeves and tucked the front of the shirt in my pants for a more defined look. So if you ever buy something and it doesn’t turn out to be the way you want it to be, or it doesn’t fit, think of alternatives. You can always experiment with your clothing items to achieve the desirable look: tuck, rip, roll, accessorize…. get creative! I paired the T-shirt with white ripped denim and white textured leather sandals with holographic detail. I added a silver statement necklace & silver bracelet with pearls for a feminine touch.
