Hello FI readers, welcome back! 

It's been a long week and honestly I so turned to food for comfort from the happenings of two weeks ago. All I've done is eat and eat some more. Nothing has been spared. My way of dealing. How do you deal with stuff like that? Turn to food? Or shopping? My little sister is visiting and that has not helped matters as we've nonstop restaurant hopped in between shopping.

Hard to believe we’ve wrapped up Summer and have entered the season of layering! Floral prints are always in bloom with me regardless. From the dark and moody Autumn appropriate ones to the bright, feminine and flirty ones; From the ones in the form of statement pieces by the priciest of designers to the most affordable and practical ones. You? Is this a seasonal trend or are florals in bloom year round for you as well?

Crafted by the most iconic designer duo in the world, this brocade skirt in all it’s vibrance and in all it’s girliness will set the stage for a memorable event this fall. Who says pretty little things like this can only be worn in the colorful and cheerful Spring/Summer seasons? Paired with solids, neutrals, and prints too for that matter, florals can be the best ornaments for any season. 

We definitely felt the chill in SF this past weekend. I paired my skirt with a crop top. As the weather got a bit nippy, I added a layer and spruced up my look further with a haute solid yellow coat. A gorgeous statement necklace from Takai By Angela (I inro'd this brand to you a few times here, have you been to their site yet? Amazing huh?) and glitter pumps completed my look. Even though I styled this in the Fall, this vibrant and utterly feminine outfit is a great inspiration for a Spring look with the yellow serving as an anchor color. Switch out the crop top and add a lace top to the mix for a dainty touch. Folks will gaze lovingly. WARNING! It may look so amazingly beautiful you’ll want to run away in it, hehe.

Your thoughts?

  13. Food really is comforting. Shopping isn't something I enjoy when I am down or stressed, so I tend to save some money when I am not happy. A positive sidenote, I guess.

  18. Idu... you look stunning as always, I adore this beautiful flora skirt and the crop top looks so good on you.

    I too have been having a rough eating week, those darned emotions that are hard to deal with... yet it's the only thing we can do ultimately. It's very painful at times, I'm hoping that by dealing with them, I'll get a handle on the food. I hope you have a good week xox ♡

  33. I sometimes turn to food for comfort but sometimes when I feel dow I can't eat anything. Anyway, I do like that skirt...and pairing it with that white cropped top was an ingenious idea. You look phenomenal dear! Gorgeous heels ...and that yellow blazer is a great statement piece.

  36. Fabulous! love this entire look, Idu. You look glam and so so beautiful. That yellow coat with the white and floral looks so perfect on you. Idu you look killer. How do I deal with it..........I am one of those who can't even think about food at such times. I suppose I tend to do more online shopping because I am in no mood to actually go shopping. Hope everything will be fine for you pretty soon, Idu. Wishing you a happy Sunday, girl.

  37. I do the very same Idu when times are annoyingly stressful. It's hard not to though hehehe. Of course a visiting relative doesn't help the situation either (nor do friends at times!). I personally adore the cropped top look, as long as it is paired tastefully with something more demure. I think it is an incredibly chic piece. And I love how you styled it. The skirt is perfect and so is that burst of sunshine in a coat!

I hope everything is ok and in my case when I am worried or just too sad I can't even think about food, I eat more when I am happy ! Kisses

  54. I don't need stress to make me turn to food, I snack all the time and it's a very bad habit that I have not managed to break since I was a teenager. I'm always eating something, chocolate or crisps or bars, there's always something and my son is picking up the same bad habit as me now. It's terrible. :-/

    I still can't believe that you teach, seriously I would take you as a model or a personal shopper or a stylist, your fashion sense is amazing!

Seriously I can turn a simple comment into a traumatic moment just so I can finish that large block of chocolate guilt free (pass the box of tissues please) hahahaha.

  71. Dear Idu, I think eating was a good choice in your challenging situation as you get energy through food and I'm convinced this was more than necessary after this tragedy. For me in such cases it is most helpful to speak and to speak and to speak about it and for sure writing them down. Nevertheless the challenging situation you look amazing and the coat is a dream! You are still in my thoughts, dear Idu.
