Mixing neutrals

You can never have too many sneakers outfits, right? Wrong, I've been wearing them for the last week and I'm slowly getting tired of it. . I've actually hurt my foot last Sunday and since then I've been only wearing sneakers, this pair especially because it's my most comfortable one. I never thought I would miss boots so much, hopefully I will be back in them next week. Since I've been rotating all of my outfits around these sneakers I though it would be nice to try an all neutral outfit with white sneakers. I've had these pants for a ...

Return of 90s boots

Ankle boots are the prettiest boots in my opinion. They look good with everything, even cropped pants, which is impossible for knee high boots. Well, maybe I love over the knee boots as much as I love ankle boots, but they go well with different outfits. As trends and styles are changing so are the types and models of ankle boots. At the beginning of 2010s biker boots and boots with zippers at unusual and more usual places were all the rage. Back then I got really into ankle boots with a reasonable heel and I got a pair of ...

Gray blazer

Second look with this blazer in two weeks. . It really is one of my favourite blazers, I like this cut that's structured and tailored but also not too tight. I love this look with blazers/jackets and skirts, even when they are not a part of a set (which is also cute, but gives you a different look). Back when I first did a post with this jacket I wrote how you can't wear it a lot during the year because it doesn't go well with any weather, turns out it is perfect for unusually warm winters. Read more »

Sunny weather

Don't you just love sunny days when it's supposed to be winter and all cold and gloomy. Any day when you can wear sunglasses for real is amazing in my book. . This time I thought to go with this simple look of a turtleneck (well, almost) sweater with a wool jacket because you can wear this type of outfits only when the winter is really warm. Any jeans that are not super skinny will go with the look, shorter leg ones are the best because you can pair them well with ankle boots. Speaking about the boots, these are ...

Two toned boots

I was never the biggest fan of suede boots, but I think I'm warming up to them. I like these mainly because of the heel length, this kind of high but not too high heel is my favourite when it comes to boots. Usually I wear ankle boots with such heel, still I liked these a lot because I thought they will look cute with boho dresses when the spring comes. That whole 70s dresses with chunky heel boots is right up my alley. What do you think about wearing black and brown together? When I first saw these boots ...

Oversized checked coat

Recently I rediscovered my love for oversized coats. They are the perfect autumn and winter style staple, especially in the last couple of years since the trend returned. What I learned from wearing my oversized camel coat is that they are super warm and easy to style with almost everything. When you are wearing those super tailored tighter coats sometimes you can't layer as much underneath them or they will look bulky. Oversized coats are quite roomy so you don't have this issue. Also, contrary to what I used to think, they do create a nice silhouette. It does help ...

Tweed skirt

Like I wrote in yesterday's post, next to corduroy skirts, tweed skirts go great with winter outfits as well. Although I think they all look stylish and beautiful, my favourite kind of tweed skirts are the ones in black and white like the skirt I'm wearing here. They remind me of old school skirt and blazer sets (which are also on trend right now). What makes tweed the perfect winter fabric is the fact that it's made of wool. Normally it's quite thick and warm so it's one of the warmest fabrics for skirts (besides actual wool). Read more »

Sweaters on floral dresses

As soon as the winter approaches all I want to wear is floral dresses. I know, it doesn't really make any sense except the fact that there's actually not so many options when it comes to winter dresses. You have your velvety and corduroy ones and all the sparkly dresses for the holidays and that's it. I don't count wool dresses because they are practically sweaters. But a bit nicer, I have to say. You can get away with wearing thinner dresses like floral ones in the winter as well, just make sure to put a sweater on top. Thicker ...

All beige

From someone who never liked warm tones in clothing to all beige outfits. What happened to me? . Well I did break things down with couple of black accessories so I'm not yet in the complete beige outfits phase. I'm not sure why I was never a fan of beige outfits, probably because I grew up (or should I say was in my late teens) when completely black outfits were all the rage. Maybe you remember the style, everything was black, leather, skulls and spikes. It was the times when wearing all black wasn't edgy or making a statement, it ...

Chunky sweater/slip dress

Chunky sweaters are my old love and I have the exact same one in blue. I got it two years ago and it has been one of my most worn sweaters since so when I recently saw this one (and on sale!) I had to have it. If you are like me and love wearing sweaters with pretty much everything, it comes in handy to have more options in your closet. Maybe this is only what I tell myself as an excuse to get more sweaters, I’m not sure. . Anyways, when it comes to wearing them, there are so ...

Button down skirt

Not the trendiest of all the pieces, but still my favourite denim skirt. Button down skirts used to be huge couple of years ago, especially the denim ones. This one is perfect mainly because of the length, it's not too short so it's great for everyday. You can wear these type of skirts all year long, in the summer with camis and of the shoulder blouses and then later into the autumn with sweaters and leather jackets. Here I paired it with my favourite fluffy sweater. Fluffy sweaters really weren't my thing until I got this one a year ago. ...

First look of this autumn

How are your autumn looks going? Are you still in that post summer phase just wearing warmer versions of summery outfits or are all of your sweaters and thicker stuff already on rotation? I'm doing both, just getting one sweater out at the time, I should probably get all of my autumn/winter clothes out of storage and organize them in my closet, but I've just been so busy and maybe procrastinating because I didn't want for summer to end. Right now I don't know what my favourite style for this time of the year is, I love skirts and dresses ...

Linen dress

One of my summer staples this year, although I didn't even wear them before. Linen dresses are one of those items you always see people wearing during the summer and think how chic and effortless their style is. Normally I go for a more boho approach to warmer weather style, but in the recent years it went into retro direction the same way all the trends went. Even though I always say I don't follow trends somehow you can't avoid them, they are in the air. . Not that you can't wear linen as a part of boho outfits, but ...

Kimonos in the spring

As far as I recall, there are two types of spring weather. First is when we go straight into super warm spring and this other kind when we go through a period of rain before it gets warmer. We just need to survive these couple of last cold days and it will be real spring. . Not only is spring my favourite season, it's also season for the best outfits, at least weather wise. I'm not gonna lie, sometimes during the winter I think about all the things I will wear when it gets warmer. Also, I thought I love ...

Toning down with denim

Not everyone wants to be super elegant all the time, although I personally think it's better to be overdressed than underdressed. . So what happens when you have a closet full of more formal items and you do want to wear them, without looking overdressed. One of the ways to tone things down is with denim. I don't remember how many times I've thrown a denim jacket on top of a more formal dress to create a casual look. This always works and is a great way to dress if you are going to an even that doesn't officially have ...

Wool dress/wool jacket

Back when I got this jacket it was a part of a suit and I thought I will never wear it on its own. It just didn't seem like you can wear it in any weather, especially when it's too cold. Turns out you can and I've been wearing it quite a bit lately, mostly with jeans and flats. Maybe this here is not the best example of an outfit with this jacket, but it was before I realized how to style it perfectly. All I learned is that the best time for a wool jacket is from winter to ...

White retro dresses

Spring always means dresses! I've gotten some out of the ''winter storage'' and washed them, now I'm just waiting for the warmer days so I can wear them on their own. And today I got a beautiful denim dress in the mail (don't you just love when that happens, it's like a gift from you to you .) so my collection is complete (for now). It was seriously lacking a simple denim dress because I thought it would look too casual on me, but what the heck, you only live once, get the denim dress. I'll try it on as ...

Great vintage pieces and where to find them

Another set of unpublished photos I found are with one of my favourite vintage dresses. . I got it couple of years ago, when I was searching for pretty vintage dresses on Etsy. Well, there's a spoiler for the rest of the post, Esty is one of the places with great vintage finds, but more about that later. There are many great things about vintage clothes, first is definitely a fact that they don't make some of those cuts anymore. Even in this Renaissance of different cuts from all the past eras, somehow you just know when the cut is ...

The return of headbands

If you are like me, you'll get excited over every new hair thing. Saying new is a bit of a stretch, we've already seen all the popular hair stuff at one point or another. They are so huge right now and it's not like we are kids wearing hair clips, people are knowingly adding them into hairstyles. Long gone are the days of simple hairstyles. I mean, have you seen Ashley Graham's hair for Oscars this year? It was a bun covered with a bunch of little bow hair clips. Even though I stopped watching Oscars couple of years ago, ...
