White Sweater Dress

Keyhole ray-bans winter style

There have been some great debates (over my mother-in-law's Sunday dinner table) about colors of clothes that goes better with a certain color of skin. Have you guys read or even heard of the Color me Beautiful book?? If not, it's basically a guide to help you choose colors that make you look your best based on the the "season" that your skin color fits in. I know it sounds confusing but it's actually a very interesting approach, except it's pretty limited and I honestly don't think we all fit into one category or "season" alone. I prefer the approach of warm, neutral and cool skin tones. For instance I'm a neutral, meaning I can wear warm or cool shades and look perfectly fine. Some skin tones are a true warm and a true cool…

Pre-Christmas Insta Roundup + End of Year Chat with Failures and Successes of 2017!

Karina style diaries and brixton

This is indeed the craziest busiest time of the month. Wrapping up the year is always hectic. I've been trying to not beat myself up so much for committing with SO MANY functions on the same week. Besides my full-time job and last-minute christmas shopping (and trust me we only get ONE present per kid, so no endless amounts of gifts) I have something going on every single evening of this week...talk about being wiped out! Tonight we'll go see the girls Christmas Concert, the first one for Sophia. Tomorrow will be my first day volunteering with a ministry I've been dreaming of being a part of (more on that to come!). Friday I have an amazing collab on the books that I'm not even the slightest bit ready for. Secret Santa with the…

Embroidered Dreamy Dress

I sure felt like a princess in a fairy-tale wearing this dreamy embroidered dress. Phazazz in tow and all made for a picture perfect day! I can surely see this Chicwish beauty strolling around Holiday parties and as a spring fling presence as well. And that my friends is what appeals to me most about this dress, it's versatility. I went for a simple fall vibe here with a pair of beige booties and wore my hair down in soft waves. Dress // Booties // Bag [show_shopthepost_widget id="2952763"] Other possibilities include (but are not limited to) a more elaborate occasion such as a holiday party as I mentioned or a nice dinner. I would wear it with a pair of nude or red pumps, or dressy booties with a stiletto heel. A (faux) fur coat would…

Olly Girl Multivitamins – Part II

Bella and Sophia horse Olly Girl campaign

*This post is a part of a sponsored campaign with Olly Girl. As always all opinions are my honest and own experience. Thanks for supporting the brands that support me. Since the girls have been taking their Olly Girl vitamins for over a month I wanted to circle back and tell you some of the things we noticed in their daily lives. As a refresher (or if you didn't catch our first post) Olly Girl is a multivitamin gummy especially designed with the needs of growing ladies ages 12-17 in mind. Their multivitamin is formulated with Biotin to target strong hair, skin and nails. It contains vitamin C which plays a role in collagen production (something I know they'll thank me later in their lives). It supports bone health and keeps their immune systems in check. Besides…

Oversized Sweater + The Best (affordable) OTK Boots

grey otk boots with pink sweater

Can't stop won't stop!! Well maybe I will give you guys a break from the girlish cuteness but only after this! Haha!! So, if you like the idea of the oversized sweaters but you're worried about being too cold to wear them alone (after all most of these won't fit under our jackets) I wanted to show you one I found to be as warm as a jacket, with bonus points for being soft to the touch and against skin plus some extra cuteness!  This Goodnight Macaroon  hand-knit giant oversized pompom cutie just won my heart! It's toasty and kept me warm layered with a thin tee to run errands outdoors in this super chilly day here in Indy.

Chunky Sweater Weather

Chicwish pompom sweater

This is not your typical sweater season, it's more like the chunky froufrou sweater season! This year styles are so girly (right up my alley I must say!) full of pompons and pretty textures. I love the endless options! When I saw this adorable sweater from Chicwish on a few of my blogger friends I got the giggles and knew I had to have it! Chicwish just takes the girly attitude to the next level! When the sweater arrived I don't know why, but I instantly thought I had to get myself on a horse, and thanks to Jody and Jenny I was able to shoot with this gorgeous Arabian horse named Phazazz! Turtleneck sweater // Jeans // Boots similar Here & Here // Earrings // Belt similar [show_shopthepost_widget id="2936249"] The idea here was to pull an equestrian inspired…

KeraHealth France Review

KeraHealth Hair supplement with kercysteine - Karina Style Diaires

You guys know I'm all about healthy choices when it comes to food (although I have been making some shameful choices lately - must confess!!) such choices affect not only the health of our bodies but our hair, skin and nails as well. Like that saying goes "You are what you eat" I believe it 100% . Now some exceptions to this rule are genetics and diseases that are not necessarily related to eating habits, other than that we all need to get our acts together and make better choices! On the other hand though we can simplify the quest for healthy hair with a supplement that will deliver the nutritional components our hair needs the most right into its root! Quite literally :) I'm talking about the newest launch in the health and…
