PAIRING OCRA YELLOW

Goodmorning peeps! I often feel the need of talking colors for clothes and accessories in my posts, I love to analyze them and to give you some useful advice on how to effectively pair them. I don’t know if I’m always succeeding in my plans, but I gotta say that I like the idea of experimenting and researching for you.

Today I analyze a color that not everybody likes, maybe due to the difficulty often met when matching it: ocra yellow

The shades of this color are a mix and they variate from golden yellow to pale brown shades, ocra white is none other than a derivative from yellow and orange. I love it dearly and I find it perfect for the Autumn season, due to it evoking and remembering its colors.

It’s not always been among my favorite colors, our relationship over the years has been quite unstable, especially due to the fact that I didn’t find it to be paired well to the color of my skin. But then something changed, I started to appreciate it, to use it and most importantly to match it properly.

Ocra yellow is a color which I find, in and of itself, very bright, if paired in the right way and with the right colors, it evokes warmth and puts a good mood in me when I wear it.

WHICH ARE THE MOST FITTING COLORS

In my outfit for today, I chose my ocra yellow padded jacket from Zara (basic line) and I decided to pair it to a dress with gray tones which however shows some lines which recall this color. For the rest of the look I played it safe, black leggings, black sleeveless too and Dr. Martens boots. One of my typical outfits for everyday street style, casual and yet with a touch of color which is never out of place.

So, among the colors which should be paired to ocra yellow, black and grey are absolutely among the best, besides, given the warm tones, this color also blends perfectly with brown or camel colors.

Ever thought about pairing ocra white with bordeaux shades? For example marsala and burgundy, if you still hadn’t thought about this pairing, you should definitely give it a shot! This kind of tone has the power of donating great brightness to ocra yellow!

Another color with which I love to couple ocra yellow is white, do you still believe the story about how white is not a winter color? I really hope you don’t, things have changed and candid shades too are proposed and employed very often for the autumn winter season!

If you still had any doubt on how wonderful and elegant this color is, I hope I broke it down for you, how would you pair it?

A kiss.

Fashion Alert: Metal is the new black?

ornella nelly-the ladybug's beauty-trend metallizzato-abiti metallizzati-grigio metallizzato-cappotto donna-zara-desigual-tricot vibes-nelly-blogger-fashion blogger -influencer italia

2016 TREND: ONLY ONE WORD, METAL!

So this 2016 is also coming to an end, therefore the time has come to analyze which were the main trends of this year, the ones we will drag over in 2017! The metal one was a true crack! It started over the first few months of this year, and in the autumn/winter season it seems to not fade a bit.

Did you ever notice, when watching shop windows lately, that they’re filled with clothes and accessories of silver, gold or bronze colors? Ok, the festivities are right behind the corner, and a bit of shininess is never wrong for New Year’s Eve, but it seems to me that many brands really pushed the envelope with the metal trend.

Will it last?

I think it will last fairly long, in the end, we ladies love to shine, we love light and obviously we love to not be overlooked. A while ago I’ve been at Zara’s with a friend (strange, isn’t it??!!) and she told me about a brand new leggings model produced by the brand which she saw on their e-commerce, when she showed me the picture: it was love at first sight!

They were the metal grey leggings I am wearing today, they still had them in stock due to them not managing to expose them on time, so we bought a pair of them each without thinking twice, after that they sold out in a couple days!

Could I stop there?

Obviously not, because metal is like a drug, a bit like glitters I think! So when I happened to find a matching sweater, I bought it without thinking too much. Because if one wants to be extravagant, at least she has to be until the very end!

In today’s outfit I really raised the bar in terms of pairing, but I couldn’t resist the idea of trying to match electric blue to metal silver, but there are other interesting insights for pairing a metal cloth and therefore creating a perfect look.

INSPIRATIONS

Shoes, trousers and especially blouses: as always it is from street style the we can draw inspiration and ideas for our outfits!

May it be a blouse, some leggings or simply an accessory, the metal trend can’t help reaping victims. In the end, even those who are the most skeptical will give into the temptation of buying a metal cloth.

As Rihanna used to say, “Shine bright like a Diamond”, isn’t it so?!

Sex and the city: A tulle blouse, and you’ll suddenly feel like Carry Bradshow

sex-and-the-city-carry-bradshow-outfit-the-ladybugs-beauty-style-stili-consigli moda-blog di moda-blogger italiana-fashion blogger-fashion blog-best blog 2016-best blog italia-style blog-borse legend-legend venezia-brand borse

Who among us women has never seen her once?

Unless you’re very young, as soon as we hear the name of this fortunate series, we all know what it’s all about.

Sex and the city is a tv show which aired in between the nineties and the two-thousands, and it narrates about the adventures of women, 4 friends like many others.
This was the great thing of this show, their being so real. Not to mention the beautiful scenario of New York City, since not all of us are lucky enough to have it as our city of residence (is it really such luck to live there?!)

The main characters of the series were just like all of us, or better, like many of us. CARRY, MIRANDA, SAMANTHA and CHARLOTTE, all four of them so different yet so similar at the same time, and so complementary between them.

How many times did we end up identifying ourselves in them?

A lot, indeed! In their usual deeds, in their friendship, in their conquers and their defeats, but most of all, in their weaknesses: We IDENTIFIED ourselves in them, all of us.

We have felt joy, we have laughed and we have cheered for them, but most importantly, we have envied their wardrobes!

Yes, because there are many details which brought Sex and the City to planetary success, but we have to stress that the dresses worn by the four main characters, and mostly by Carry Bradshow, played a crucial role!

WHAT MADE SEX AND THE CITY SO SPECIAL

Many things, but the one that counts the most for me, is the fact that for the first time they created a series aimed to women, yet without the usual excess of chatter or futile words. Legit, frank, and most importantly, without taboos.

For the first time, women were not only the prey, the weakest sex, but we also observed a woman which was certain and proud of herself, mostly strong in her weaknesses and her feelings. And we, as women, all thanked en-masse for this!

Sex and the city may just be a TV, which has ended for many years now among other things, but I still love it dearly, and I’m not the only one. Over the years the repeatedly tried to duplicate such success, but everything that came after hasn’t yet proved worthy of what this TV show represented, but most importantly, what it gave us.ù

Each and every one of us would love to be Carry Bradshow, walking around with fluttering dresses and a pair of Manolo Blanhik on our feet. Mostly, each and every one of us would love to have her Big in her life.

And I would love it too. Starting from the premise that I already have my Big (maybe less unpredictable and with a little bit more belly fat!) and that I love him to death, will you still allow me to play around and wear my tulle blouse bought in a clothing shop like many others, along with my ever-comfortable Zara sandals?

It’s just another pretty negress needing very little to be happy asking this.

In the end, it’s useless to always spend tons of money in order to feel comfortable with what we wear, and to just dream a bit.

Have a nice Monday, my pretty Carries❤️

The Ladybug’s Beauty Blog: Could dreams have birthdays?

fashion blogger-ornella nelly-the ladybug's beauty-diario fashion blogger-classifica fashion blogger-blogger italiane-diventare fashion blogger-diventare blogger-fashion-mondo della moda-street style-outfit blogger-influencer italia

One year. One year already went by since, on a casual afternoon, me and two friends were having a little chatter, at the birthday party of one of my son’s little companions.

I had just started some kind of blog, which I was the sole visitor of, with the purpose of making it my venting vehicle. But one of these friends, on that afternoon, invited me to share this small space of mine with other people, while the other one offered to take the necessary pictures to be used in the future posts.

One year, exactly, because after that small and meaningless chatter, after 365 days I find myself with a real and tangible project (a dream!)

I have the pleasure of seeing this blog, and credit myself for the hours lost in learning from one forum to another, and for the commitment devolved for always believing until the end.

In the end, for me, The Ladybug’s Beauty is just that, my beautiful daydream. This is not only a blog, this is me with all of my passions, with my thousand of facets and my direct yet, in my own context, sincere writing.

ATYPICAL BLOGGER

Why do I define myself as an atypical blogger?

Of course not to distance myself from being labelled as a FASHION BLOGGER, a STYLE BLOGGER and all other things ( you can label me what you want, I don’t see anything strange or bad in this!)

Simply put, I don’t believe I’m just that.

There are a lot of girls asking themselves every day how to become a fashion blogger, maybe sometimes they don’t precisely know what it means of what they should do in order to open a blog of their own, and oftentimes they give up the idea of putting so much time and effort in an apparently easy project.

I love the world of fashion, and everything revolving around it, but I also don’t expect much, I don’t love perfection at all costs and I don’t stress myself in order to always be at the top of my game in every occasion.

I for one, just like other women who share this “job” with me, am a mother, and this alone means that my priorities are way different. I like to tell you about my problems and my female imperfections, not just giving you an idea of perfection which, in reality, does not exist.

This is exactly why the DIARY OF AN ATYPICAL BLOGGER space was born, because if I wanted to make what I was doing real, I needed to show it myself.

WHY THE LADYBUG’S BEAUTY

Many people always ask me why I named the blog like this, so I think it’s time to tell you what The Ladybug’s Beauty represents for me.

It has nothing to do with the fact that I feel like a small “ladybug”, the true meaning of this goes way beyond.

The ladybug, for me, is just a symbol.

Do you actually believe that people who are no longer with us can find ways to let you feel that they are still with you, ways which sometimes can seriously expand beyond human comprehension?

I do, and for me, this little and magic bug is the way my dear grandma found to let me know that she never really left.

And when your heart knows it’s true, you don’t necessarily need others to believe it, too.

This is what The Ladybug’s Beauty was born from, because my whole life revolves around this, and I always needed it to be like this. It makes me feel safe.

So happy birthday to my blog, to what it represents for me and mostly to my daydream. And, in order to celebrate it appropriately, I decided that the pictures had to be taken in my city, not the one I live in now but the one I lived in up until a few years ago, where I often and gladly come back to.

They have been taken in my beloved Padua, precisely in Prato della Valle.
The same place where my grandma brought me to see the market with the bus when I was still tiny, where my dad accompanied me for ice cream and told me about life, in our father/daughter afternoons. Where I used to go with my bestie after “jumping” school, and where I currently take my kids, possibly at the carousels, as soon as I have the occasion to.

Of course dreams also have birthdays❤️
