Hot Air Balloons - a Two Piece Outfit

April 3, 2017

This week is going to be tough, guys. It is the last one before Spring Break in Spain and that gives us teachers the heebie-jeebies. I need lots of strength to keep those teens on their seats! So if you are having a case of the Mondays like me, I hope this post will brighten your day a little bit.

I love two piece outfits. I find them really feminine and therefore are totally my style. They are also incredibly versatile because you can wear them together or separately so the combination options are endless. I already professed my love for two piece outfits with this ice-cream print set that I wore countless times last summer and that I can't wait to wear again.
The top and skirt set are from French brand Des Petits Hauts. A brand I discovered randomly on a shopping spree when I moved to Madrid. It's characterized by pastel colors, pretty prints and Parisian style so you will understand I'm afflicted by a few coups de coeur every time I visit their store. In case you don't know coup de coeur is a French expression that literally means heart stroke but is used to refer to a case of love at first sight. In fact, last weekend I visited their store to try on the new collection and fell for these adorable jungle print shorts and this beautiful fruit print romper that I will show you soon on the blog.

You've already seen the cardigan on my Valentine's Day outfit post and paired with this cute pom-pom scarf. I've been wearing it non-stop this season! I wore these ankle strap shoes on my Hello Spring! post but you could barely see them. Here you can get a better look at them. I'm very indecisive when it comes to shopping but the decision of buying these shoes was a no-brainer. I don't like heels higher than these and I don't wear flats either so it's hard to find a pair like this. I love the color, the strap detail and the little mirror on the inner part of the heel.

  6. Aww, love this. So cute with a fun, feminine flair. I remember getting so antsy in school before break. The worse was before summer break though! I'm sure we all drove the teachers crazy. Hang in there!

  7. You look gorgeous! I love the mix of colors!

  8. Love the hot air balloon dress. I love navy paired with blush pink. Those shoes and heart brooch are the cutest! This would be great for Easter Sunday, too. =)

  9. Love this combo!

  10. I can see why you like Des Petits Hauts! Their clothes are classy and have a great retro look to them. If I wasn't on a budget, I'd scour their looks for some style inspiration.

  14. Love the two piece set and the shoes! I recently got a similar pair of shoes in black and they're great for work. The block heel ensures that I don't get stuck in cobblestones on my way to the office, and the strap ensures that I don't slip out on accident. Great feminine look!

  15. Love this color combo (it's one of my favorites), and the details are so cute and girly. Adorable outfit!
