Finally! Time to wear floppy hats!

Standard

 

I was so happy to wear this outfit. I could finally wear my floppy Autumn hat! And the outfit turned out exactly how I pictured it in my head. The proportions – just how I imagined. Textures match, how I wanted them to (yes, I am obsessed with clothes). Everything. This is hands down my favourite outfit this Autumn. I enjoyed it that much more, because I have few chances to take out my casual stuff for a spin.

I got to enjoy this outfit mostly in the dark though… it honoured the movie theatre with it’s presence – we went to see the second Thor movie (which was goooood!).

And a few detail shots. This hat is just so awesome. It was a gift from my husband. I have no idea when people decided that this is an appropriate gift for my birthday, but I totally turned into a hat lady. Maybe I will write an ode to a hat I saw on zara.com and was obsessing about it for several days until it got sold out. :/ It had cat ears, for Pete’s sake! CAT EARS!

And the bag of the season! Enter fluffiness.

On a completely unrelated note – I cannot get Busta Rhymes “Woo ha!” out of my head…

Outfit: duffle coat – ASOS, cord skirt – Esprit, overknees – Falke, wedges – ASOS, bag – Pilar Abril, scarf – Soaked in Luxury and THE HAT – Seeberger.

 

Cheers.

The mom outfit

Standard

 

I am feeling a bit uninspired word-wise this rainy weekend. But the outfits are ON. I keep obsessing with what I am going to wear all next week at work. So, sorry for the boring post, I hope the outfit will make up for it. Continuing the topic on midi skirts.

This outfit reminds a bit of the 70s fashion. Midi skirt, no cleavage – all buttoned up or turtleneck-ed. It also really appeals to me, because my mom used to wear similar clothes. I remember her skirts and dresses, when she would pick me up from the kindergarten. She is still so very stylish.

I found this skirt while browsing on ASOS and decided against it, because I did not want to pay more than 60€ for a skirt, and then it got sold out…Fortunately they restocked and coincidence of coincidences – I got a bonus around that time! So, now you are seeing the photos of it. Unfortunately it turned out a bit too big and I had to belt the skirt under the sweater so it would hold around the waist. Just to be on the safe side, I will take it for alterations only in spring, if I do not gain weight, cause I do love to eat and winter is coming…For now, I will need to hide the waist of the skirt under wider tops. I could of course tuck the sweater in (I saw it in a couple of blogs), but even though I find that it can look quite cool, I think on me it would just seem too awkward.

Let us talk about the rest of the pieces. This trench is pretty awesome – I got it last year for my birthday. It has a lining that can be taken out. So I can wear it almost all year round. Highly recommended.

The little Sal decided to take an opportunity to sneak onto the balcony and take part in the photo shoot. She matches my faux fur bag perfectly.

Will definitely weird out the people in the office with this combo. Because, you know – I will look like a mom from the 70s.

I will also be forced to be on trend this Autumn – I have quite a few burgundy pieces and apparently IT IS ON with the burgundy this season. So sorry for that.

I’ve been looking forward to carrying my fluffy bag since the early spring, when I put it aside for something lighter.

The pumps though…were a bit of a disappointment. I love Vagabond shoes and had 4 or 5 pairs of them before (from flip flops to winter boots). I mean, the fit is actually good, they are not too narrow. The color is nice and in general they look good. So what the hell is wrong then? The heel is placed in a part of the sole, that when you walk, you already expect the heel to hit the ground but it does a little moment later and so you walk a tad awkwardly. Which is irritating. I decided to keep them, since I am more or less confined to my desk the whole day. Otherwise they would be back where they came from.

Outfit: trench – Spoom, sweater – H&M, skirt – ASOS, shoes – Vagabond, bag – Pilar Abril

Cheers.

PINK! Yet again…

Standard

 

I just mentioned in the previous post, that I am into low key clothing at the moment. Well, this post is not a total contradiction (obviously) – the in yo face pink skirt is the only in your face thing in this outfit. And yes, I wore this to the office.

The one thing that obsessive fashion blog browsing has taught me is, that there is nothing wrong with wearing bright colors in Autumn and Winter. And since the fabric of the skirt is quite thick, I intend to wear it well way into Autumn at least, maybe combining them with some knee high boots. We’ll see how it goes.

And the rest of the outfit just lets the skirt do the talking. Twirling is better than twerking anyway.

You will be seeing much more of this bag, because this bag basically became the only bag that matters during the last couple of months. It helps me keep the outfits office-y. And I can do my grocery shopping without any additional bag, another awesome feature, that is much appreciated in the bags (and yes people do stare at you if you put your milk and sausage in the bag). And look how it can stand on its own! That’s a good bag!

Some random close ups and details of the skirt. It has a bow belt! How can you not love it.

And please ignore my finger in the next pic, the edge just did not want to stay up after a day at the desk.

So there you have it.

Outfit: body – Ganni, skirt – ASOS, shoes – Pretty Ballerinas, bag – Zara.

Cheers.

Earthy

Standard

Ever since I hit the big THREE – OH back in July  I’ve been into low key colors. Nothing too pink or at least pink, but not too often. Maturity is catching up with me or something…Thought, does the level of pink in our outfits really define the level of maturity…I doubt it, PINK FOR LIFE!

Back to the topic of low key –  a low key outfit I wore to run some errands on my last day of vacation. Most of the pictures turned out either very serious, me not looking at the camera or me sneezing. The sneezing thing will look much better as a gif…maybe I’ll even make one. But as for the outfit – these pictures were the most suitable to show – you can see details quite well here.

Here we have one more serious expression and a picture of the bag. The bag is not as cool as it looked in the shop. My husband got it for me a couple of years ago, when I saw it at Deichmann, while waiting for the new tires for the car. I expected it to hold its shape a bit better, but it just extends like rubber when you start filling it up with life. Still, I quite like it, especially for colder weather.

and yes, I’ve got a new haircut and am showcasing it from both sides. My hairdresser for some reason cut it and styled it to turn outwards…I looked like a first year student at best and was not sure about what the hell am I going to do with dat hair. I am really not a hair product person and have no idea what to do with hair in general. But apparently, there is nothing flat iron cannot fix. I came up with a very simple routine for the mornings and am really happy with my hair now. Not too short, so I can still bind it in a pig tail and not too long so I can wear it loose and it will not be in my way. Crisis averted (#firstworldproblems). Plus, makes me look like a serious woman at work.

and the shooooooooes. I soooo loooooove theses shoes. I don’t wear them to work, so I savour the time I do get to wear them. Asos sure did a great job with these.

Outfit: sweater – H&M, skirt – EDC by Esprit, shoes – ASOS, tights – ASOS, bag – Deichmann

Cheers.

Off duty

Standard

I continue to freak out my colleagues and people around me in general, or at least make them lift their eye brows. Because why would someone wear weird ass white shoes and why do you need to wear ripped pants? 80s much? Yeah, bitches – 80s, FTW!

So I put on my moon boots (I have no idea why I call them that, they just remind me of astronaut boots for some reason) and go about my business earning looks. Which, I must say I am slowly learning to ignore. If I do notice them, then they just make me smile.

Outfit: jeans -H&M, top – asos, jacket – retro jeans, sneakers – MMM for H&M, bag – Sisley

I wanted high tops for quite a while now and when MMM for H&M were available for purchase, I did not think much about it.

I mean com’on! It is the re-edition of actual Margiela shoe!

They are pretty amazeballs fashionwise, but I do need to figure out how to wear them, since they are not that comfy. Not something you would expect from sneakers…Need to loosen them laces in the front a bit, so my wide feed would feel more welcome. The leather is pretty stiff, so I cannot lace them up all the way to the top, because then they press on the back of my legs :/ But with some compromise they are quite wearable, so I do not regret this purchase. Anyway, Marty McFly would approve, don’t you think?

Bee-tee-double-u, notice the difference in the photos? I finally got a proper lense! Hence, the outfit post and even some more to come.

cheers

Sausage dog

Standard

Just a partial outfit post – only outer layers, named after my beret.

Just some info on the outfit, due to the lack of insporation – I always wanted a trench coat, but of course it could not be normal, as in classy. This one is awesome – was a gift for my last birthday from myself – the lining can be taken out, so you can wear it all year round (unless it is really freezing) and it is of all kinds of funky colors. So – good enough for work, but it does not make me sink into depression, just because it is all black.

The scarf is from around 5 years ago – I got it in India. Some random mittens from amazon.com, called Guru or something like that. Burgundy turtleneck sweater peeking from behind the scarf  is from H&M on sale and has turned into a favorite. Knee high socks, I think from asos, but I am not sure anymore. My trusty Timberland boots and the Free people beret, called – the sausage dog…OK OK there is no THE, but I got it because of the name and it is warm and funky…

And the most important  thing – the bag. I got it on zalando-lounge for 24 Euros! I’ve been looking for a faux fur bag for several years now and this was such an epic steal. I am ridiculously happy with it – chic yet crazy. By Patrizia Pepe.

Cheers

THE Leggings

Standard

I finally figured out my password to my gmail account for the gallery with all the blog photos. I think I harassed someone accidentally, because it appears that I had forgotten my username as well and send requests about forgotten passwords and account unlocking to Google about someone else accounts…

THE leggings and what an odyssey it was to get them.. I was sitting half a day on November 17th clicking refresh every couple of minutes, since the website of H&M was not able to handle all the crazy shoppers.

Guess what? After the package arrived, surprise surprise – leggings were in a totally different size than I ordered! I was really disappointed and pissed. Who can mix up 36 with 42?! There was immediate rushing to the computer to order another pair. And of course 36 had already sold out. So I got 38 instead. Then after a couple of weeks the package came again. Oh joy! Tearing of a package and!..huh? Am I missing something? There was supposed to be a bag with some extremely bright seizure inducing colours here. Turns out – they sent me a long ugly coloured too big in size cardigan!

Anyway, I did not want to do anything anymore with H&M online store for this particular item(of course I called and yelled at them that I do not want to buy this thing anymore..another long story), so I ordered them on Ebay. Of course, I could have waited for ladies to return the stuff, since they had realized by now that they will not wear the clown leggings (I saw such comment on the interwebs – apparently clowns wear such pants..I thought they wear huge wide leg ones..whatever) and I could have gotten them eventually and maybe even on sale. But since I was really really really obsessed with those damn leggings and really really really pissed with the store, that I did not care anymore that I had to overpay on Ebay.

So. Here they are! (drums) The epic leggings from the epic Versace for H&M collection.

Naturally we are not experiencing the weather for suitable for the above outfits yet, but the world deserves to see.

Wearing:

The first picture: H&M dress, THE leggings and asos wedge shoes.

The second picture: shirt from my husband’s closet, belt from my mom’s closet, THE leggings and the Pretty Ballerinas. There is also a Desigual clutch in my hands. Nevermind the hair thing on my wrist.

So there.

Outfit post. Shoe Challenge #3

Standard

I took advantage of the good weather to take some pictures for the shoe challenge (check the Shoeperwoman website for more detail). These shoes, though are my current favorite, are also quite difficult to incorporate into an outfit. They look good with rolled up jeans, but I just couldn’t be bothered shaving my legs just for few pictures, hence the black tights. So sue me.

Outfit: skirt and tank top – Esprit, top – H&M jacket – Tiks, shoes – Asos Totally Suede, scarf – Soaked in Luxury, earrings – from India.

There’s not much to report today, except that I cleaned the windows, so just enjoy the pictures 🙂

Cheers

Shoe Challenge Excuses

Standard

Since I am rather preoccupied with the job hunt, I did not snap any pics of my outfits yet, just managed to wear some shoes. I just want to indicated that I have worn these shoes and will be sure to take photos eventually (after all the tension is gone).

Here are the shoes that I wore.

Converse sneakers (seen here)…what can be easier, right? 🙂 Wore them to the shop.

Bronx brown knee boots (seen here). Wore them on Valentine’s day while visiting my in laws. How romantic…well to be frank, I do not give a crap about that pink/red/card/flower/candy/slutty underwear day. I had a couple of glasses of good wine and a relaxing evening in cozy environment.

Bronx ankle boots (seen here). Since I am mostly at home, my main exercise is grocery shopping. Wore these to get some stuff for dinner. They are so damn loud. In the town itself is no biggie – noise level cancels them out. But in our quiet street and on the way to the shop it is like there is nothing else left in the universe, but the noise these shoes make oO. I still love them, they’ve been with me for about 4 years now.

Asos Totally Suede ankle boots(seen here). My current favorites. My feet are rather wide, so the round toes are just a perfect fit (gives enough space to squeeze my relatively large feet in) and the laces allow perfect adjustment for my high arches. (I am just so special with my wide feet and high arches oO). Anyway, the shoes are damn comfortable. I had walked in them all day and was not tired at all. And the craziest is, I got them for a ridiculous discount :).

 

cheers.
