DIY Fringe Denim

I’ve been seeing this trend around since the summer and I love the frayed look of raw hem jeans – also the cropped style looks really good with ankle boots for the winter. When I first saw these I knew they would be easy to make and went looking for an old pair that I could try to cut myself. It came out really good, don’t you think? Just a warning though – it is super messy so make sure if you do it to keep it to one corner of hour house for the sake of your roommate/boyfriend :) If you like these DIY videos I have more and will be making many more on my Youtube Channel- so if you click on the link above you can subscribe. Thanks for watching and until next time! xx Karen

Lace top – Second TLV // Jeans – Levi’s for Nasty Gal // Sneakers – Zara // Bag Rebecca Minkoff

Embroidery is really in lately, have you noticed? :) I picked up this embroidered lace top from a new online store I discovered called Second TLV. They import their clothes from LA to Tel Aviv and the style is very trendy and cool. Its refreshing to see more stores in this city becoming digital and opening up e-shops. I think its a long time coming and soon Israelis will be like the mass consumer Americans;). I paired the top with a pair of high rise jeans I got from Nasty Gal and white sneakers. A casual every day look with a twist. Hope you love it, please leave me a comment below and my next post will be a DIY video so stay tuned! xx Karen

White Lace Top and Leather Jacket

jacket Zara // top Band of Gypsies // boots Matisse // bag Zara

Neutral colors are my favorite for fall, I love pairing black, white and greys all in one outfit combo. The boots are new from Matisse I got when I was visiting the states. The top is from Band of Gypsies, an amazing brand I found in LA they sell at Urban Outfitters and Asos. Velvet is a huge trend this season so when I saw this mini chain bag online at Zara I knew I had to get it. It a neutral dark blue so it goes with pretty much everything and adds a little interest to every outfit. Hope you love the outfit and until next time xx Karen

Denim Coat and Thigh High Boots

coat Zaful // boots Jeffery Campbell // scarf Forever 21

I got these boots from the US when I was visiting this past month. I really wanted a pair of high rise over the knee boots and the Stuart Weizman pair that all the celebrities are wearing is so expensive- so these from Jeffery Campbell are a great alternative. The only thing is they have a zipper on the side so you can see it in the inseam but its not a big deal you get used to it. The coat is from Zaful, an online shop that has really affordable trendy clothes. I like to wear a small scarf or bandana around my neck sometimes instead of a choker but soon I’ll need to swap it out for a big chunky scarf for the cold weather. Hope you love the outfit and many new posts and a new DIY video coming soon so stay tuned! xx Karen

קניתי את המגפיים האלה בארה”ב כשביקרתי בחודש האחרון. אני ממש רציתי זוג מגפיים מעל הברך והזוג של סטיוארט ויצמן שכל הסלבים לובשים ממש יקר ולכן אלה מג’פרי קמפבל הם אלטרנטיבה מצוינת. הדבר היחיד הוא שיש להם רוכסן בצד, כך שאפשר לראות אותו אבל זה לא עניין גדול. המעיל הוא מזפול, חנות אונליין עם בגדים אופנתיים במחירים ממש סבירים. אני אוהבת ללבוש מתפחת או צ׳וקר קטן סביב הצוואר לפעמים אבל בקרוב אצתרך להחליף את זה לצעיף גדול מסורבל בגלל במזג האוויר הקר. מקווה שאהבתם את התלוק ובקרוב יגיעו פוסטים חדשים וגם סרטון חדש אז תשארו מעודכנים! -קרן

Winter Wishlist

Here is my round-up of top items for winter, I always like to do a list like this before each season begins and I’m sure some of you do too, right? I tried to make it pretty balanced between essential basics and trendy pieces that you might wear a lot this winter. I’ll break the trends down for you and also list off the must-have items and a closet can’t be without during the winter (Tel Aviv winter :) ). So here we go:

OUTERWEAR: I like to have a basic leather jacket, a wool coat, and a bomber jacket – those three are essential that you can wear with everything. Shearling is a big trend this season which is why I chose the jacket above. Duster coats are also big, as seen on Kendall and Gigi everywhere, so a long wool coat could be great for this year.

TOPS: I like to have knitted sweaters as well as cotton or jersey tops, mostly in the form of turtlenecks because I just love turtlenecks. This season we’re also going to be seeing a lot of sweatshirts and retro style/colorblock which is why I chose the sweater above from Zara.

BOTTOMS: We mostly wear long pants in the cold months so skinny jeans and mom jeans are a must. You can also wear miniskirts and pair them with leggings or thigh high boots. Embroidery is a huge trend this season so I chose this cute skirt from Topshop above.

DRESSES: Long sleeve dresses are great for winter, I have a more bohemian style so I chose this flower print dress above. Instead of wearing sandals, pair them with boots or sneakers + socks.

SHOES: My favorite category:) Ankle boots, sock boots, over-the-knee boots, ballet flats, loafers and sneakers to name a few. Velvet is super trending so these Chloe velvet ankle boots are to die for.

ACCESSORIES: Opt for neutrals and darker colors instead of bright colors of summer for handbags and hats during the winter.

Well, I hope you liked my list! I will leave a link to each item below, feel free to comment and let me know what you think. Until next time, xx Karen

הרשימה שלי לפריטי המאסט לחורף, אני תמיד אוהבת לעשות רשימה כזו בתחילת כל עונה ואני בטוחה שחלק מכם עושים את זה גם, נכון? ניסיתי לעשות את זה די מאוזן בין פריטים בייסיקים לפריטים יותר טרנדים כי צריך גם וגם בארון. אני אפרט לפי מגמות בשבילכם וגם ארשום את הפריטים שחייב שיהיה בארון החורף (חורף  שלתל אביב :) ). אז קבלו: הלבשה עליונה: אני רוצה שיהיה לי מעיל עור בסיסי, מעיל צמר, מעיל טייסים – שלושה אלה הם בסיסיים שניתן ללבוש עם כל דבר. שירלינג זה טרנד גדול בעונה זו ולכן בחרתי את המעיל של אקנה למעלה. גם מעילים ארוכים, כפי שרואים על קנדל גיגי בכל מקום, זה טרנד חזק אז מעיל צמר ארוך יכול להיות נהדר עבור השנה .עליון: אני רוצה שיהיה לי סוודרים סרוגים וגם חולצות כותנה או ג ‘רזה, בעיקר בצורה של גולף כי אני פשוט אוהב גולף. בעונה זו אנחנו גם עומדים לראות הרבה חולצות בסגנון קולורבלוק ורטרו כמו זאת מזארה. תכתון: אנחנו בעיקר לובשים מכנסיים ארוכים בחודשים הקרים אז ג’ינס סקיני ומתרחב הן חובה. אפשר גם ללבוש חצאית מיני עם גרביונים או מגפיים גבוהים. רקמה היא טרנט ענק העונה ולכן בחרתי את החצאית חמודה מטופשופ בתמונה. שמלות: שמלות שרוול ארוך נהדרות לחורף, אני אוהבת סגנון בוהמי יותר ולכן בחרתי שמלת הדפס פרחוני. במקום ללבוש סנדלים, תלבשו את השמלות עם מגפיים או סניקרס + גרביים. נעליים: קטגוריה האהוב עלי :) מגפונים, מגפי גרב, מגפיים, נעלי בלט, נעלי וסניקרס ולאופרס הם מאסט. קטיפה היא סופר באופנה אז המגפיים האלה מקלואי הם למות. אביזרים: העדיפו נייטרליים צבעים כהים במקום צבעים בהירים של קיץ בתיקים וכובעים החורף. ובכן, אני מקווה שאהבתם את הרשימה שלי! אני אשאיר קישור לכל פריט למעתה, אתם מוזמנים גם להגיב ולתת חוות דעת. עד לפעם הבאה, קארן

Sophia Richie Crop Top – DIY Tutorial

 

It’s finally finished! My second DIY tutorial is now live on Youtube in both English and Hebrew:) Both versions are posted above in that order. So, this video came about because I saw a photo of Sophie Richie wearing this super cute top paired with high rise pants, a very 90’s look. I knew I had to recreate the look and I knew I wouldn’t be able to find the exact one so I decided to sew it myself. I’ve been sewing ever since I was young and sleeveless crop tops like this are pretty easy to make (I’ve already made a bunch). The only twist was the white elastic around the hem but I found something really similar at the market and it came out looking pretty good, right? What do you think? Let me know below and have a wonderful weekend xx Karen

Striped Linen Dress and Levis Jacket

jacket Levis // dress Urban Outfitters // loafers Franco Sarto

This is a casual outfit I put together to style this new dress I got in LA on sale for so cheap. My favorite colors are neutrals so I paired it with a dark grey denim jacket from Levis and open back loafers which are really trending lately. Its a great look to wear for transitional weather because soon it will be too cold to wear dresses at all! A styling trick- when you’re wearing neutral/dark colors like black or grey try adding a pop of color in the lip like I did here. It balances out the look and makes more of a statement.  Hope you love the look, until next time xx Karen

זהו לוק יום יוםי שהרכבתי להשמלה החדשה הזו שמצאתי בלוס אנג’לס על בסייל מטורף. הצבעים האהובים עליי הם צבעים נייטרליים אז אני לבשתי אותה עם ז’קט ג’ינס אפור כהה מליואיס ומוקסינים פתוחים מאחור שממש באופנה בזמן האחרון. זה לוק נהדר לאונת המעבר כי בקרוב יהיה קר מדי ללבוש שמלות בכלל. טיפ סטיילינג כשלובשים צבעים ניטרליים כהים כמו שחור או אפור זה הוספת פופ של צבע בשפתיים כמו שעשיתי כאן. זה מעדן את המראה. מקווה שאוהבתם את הלוק, עד הפעם הבאה -קרן

Afternoon in Mexico

dress Band of Gypsies (link) // jacket Zara // shoes vintage // sunnies Rayban

Back from Mexico! And the US. I flew to the states for the holidays for three weeks with my boyfriend and it was a blast, kind of bittersweet to come back to Tel Aviv. But at least I have nice photos I can post for the blog :) When I was there, I drove down to LA to visit friends and stopped by the Band of Gypsies showroom. I absolutely loved their new collection! Picked up a few pieces like this flower print dress with a tie neck- what do you think? Shot these photos on my last day in Mexico out in the streets of Puerto Vallarta. There is such a cool atmosphere there, kind of like urban and tropic mixed together. Well, hope you liked the look and until next time! xx Karen

sweater H&M // shorts Topshop // bag Sophie Hulme // sunglasses Rayban // shoes H&M

When the seasons start to change and its not too hot anymore but not too cold still, I like to wear transitional weather outfits. What do I mean by that? Weird combinations like a chunky turtleneck sweater, shorts, and sandals. I know that if I go outside it’ll be windy but sunny or some strange combo of the two so I just dress appropriately:) I picked up these two new items (sweater and sandals) from the new arrivals section at H&M. I love the subtle bell sleeves of the chunky knit and I’m a sucker for anything lace up so the sandals were a must. The outfit is a neutral brown and tan so I added a pop of color with the flower print bag I got vintage from Vestiare. Hope you loved the outfit!

jeans Levis // scarf Adi Bakshi // boots Matisse // bag Sophie Hulme

I love bright colors and flower prints, but not always on the entire outfit. Here I show how I pair these colorful accessories with a neutral sleeveless top and jeans for a balanced casual look. The scarf is from Israeli designer Adi Bakshi, she specializes in scarves with buttons that you can wrap around your neck and tie in the front. These boots from Matisse are my favorite recent purchase, I got them on sale at Revolve and they go with just about everything. High rise Levis jeans are also a must, especially for Fall when the weather gets chilly and you need a bit more coverage. Well, hope you loved this look! Don’t forget to see it on Instagram @karennor as well. Until next time xx Karen
