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.

Blue and green with plastic on top

Standard

And while I am on a roll, here is a little something from Polyvore. But don’t get me started on what they did to the system. It is not at all intuitive anymore. What’s with all the crappy templates?! They really made some changes for the worse.

Blue and green with plastic on top

 I am exposed to too much fashion reads, pastels are everywhere right now. And I am really having a thing for this type of pastel green lately. So not only the sunnies are arriving, but also the green sandals from Aldo Rise Preen! I was excited, because those shoe collaborations have gone quietly…I discovered them by accident and boy was I happy to see them almost half off, because they launched some time in March. I read some unkind reviews afterwards though and my excitement ist turning to scepticism…..oh well, I can always send them back.

Orange hippos

Standard

Another polyvore set. Again some orange and blue, this time just as hints of color popping up from under jacket or pinned to the ear.

I actually bought this bag (in another color – garnet) and pants and have similar shoes. I wanted to create an outfit that I could actually imagine wearing.

I was puzzled by the brand of the bag. It says D2, but no tags came with it so I have no idea what that is. I don’t think it has anything to do with Dsquared2, but who knows.

Blue and Orange plus Feathers

Standard

Lately I’ve been having a thing for certain colour combinations. One of them is bright orange and blue another one – pink and green. Since couturious has disappeared from the face of the interwebs I needed to switch to some other means (currently polyvore) of putting together some imaginary looks.

Also I’ve been obsessing over fur and feather skirts a lot…in my head. And I’ve put pointy suede ballet flats on my wish list. So here we go:

Blue and Orange plus Feathers

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

Outfit post (Shoe challenge #2)

Standard

The sun is finally coming out and Spring seems to have finally arrived. As a consequence I am not feeling so sleepy all the time. That’s why I give you!..the result of a Sunday walk.

Outfit: jeans and tank top – Esprit, hoodie – Vertus (some Polish knock off brand I think), jacket – Tiks, belt – Fat Face,  Shoes – Converse, sunnies – Polaroid.

This week we discovered that it is now allowed to go behind the nearby forest into some former mining area (pictures to come). We had quite a stroll and took some nice pictures. It was quite a perfect time to practice my posing – not many people around. But now I think that it is not worth it – it is much more fun to have strange photos that reflect my personality. For example on the picture on the left I am about to sneeze.

Anyway, no fancy shoes to show off, I do not tend to wear heels in the fields or forest. Hence, the reasonable choice – Converse. I acquired them in London a couple of years ago. I bought the jeans in London as well, got quite a good bargain if I remember correctly.

Since I needed some comfortable outfit for a long walk, I just added some colour with the weird belt and a tank top, not to be totally gloomy. I think it still looks better than the standard German outfit for such a thing – couples usually look totally alike – wearing jack wolfskin windbreakers (or of some similar company), jeans and trekking shoes and usually accessorize  with those sticks for walking (you know, the ones that look like skiing sticks) and a big dog.

People often assume I am an angry person, but it is just my facial expression 😀 It indicates how well I’ve slept the night before. Not very well, judging from the above pictures. And since I do not hide behind the ton of make up, this is what you see in the pictures – angry me! Deal with it.

Enough of none essential BS, here are the details of my outfit. My belt, which I bought while being stranded at Heathrow airport – my flight was insanely delayed and I, of course, searched for comfort in retail therapy. (Btw,  it turns out I wore the belt upside down…my typical scatter brainness.)

There is a silhouette of a horsie on my hoodie, even has mane and stuffs. You like?

Cheers.

Outfit post. Forest fun.

Standard

We visited our dear friends on Halloween. Before the dinner we went for a walk in the forest. I needed to change my shoes unfortunately, so the oufit is not exactly what I was wearing (originally it looked a bit 70s :)), but I could not risk wading throught the mud in good shoes. I have my rubber boots for exactly this purpose – crappy weather and/or walking conditions. I think I am still way too practical to be an actual fashion blogger…I worry if I will be comfortable, if I will not ruin my clothes or shoes, if the bag will not be in the way, the skirt will not be too short, so I don’t end up pulling it down all the time etc. So often I end up wearing not exactly what I had in mind. But believe me, in this case rubber boots were a must…

Outfit: top – Esprit, sweater – United Colors of Benetton, jeans and belt – Esprit, scarf – from the market in India, jacket – some (non existing any more?) Lithuanian brand Tiks, boots – The Only, from amazon.


Due to my lame posing (I am still polishing my technique…*cough*) I could use only this one picture of my outfit, so more stories under forest pictures.


I bought the sweater in India. It is made of awesome wool..you know, the one that bights the skin? I love it. The colour is so nicely in your face :). Perfect piece for the winter – both practical and cute.


The jacket was aquired years ago, and I mean years…Like 7 or so. I wear it every year, it has never stayed in my closet during this jacket appropriate weather. I bought it for my last money. A couple of my friends from university and me were wandering this outlet store (at that time it was not that popular yet) and I saw this jacket for 35 Litas I think (around 10 euros in today’s currency rates) and I scraped my last money (I think it was all coins :D) and bought it. What an investment. I really love it when this happens – manage to snag a thing of great quality for a steal 😀

cheers.
