Can one single detail change the whole outfit? Yes, certainly. This time it’s shoes. Lace-up ballerinas are very in now, and even though I’m not one to blindly follow trends, those shoes just stole my heart.

I decided to dress smart casual with little egdy additions like velvet choker, lace-ups and colourful makeup. These ballerinas from American Eagle Outfitters look very sophisticated and feminine, but also bold at the same time.

As the colours were very simple and neutral in this outfit, I made the makeup much more interesting: orange eyeshadow on the top lid with glitter on lower lash line create a very unique look.
