Cord

Standard

 

Cord is my best friend, when the temperatures plummet. It doesn’t attract cold, unlike jeans. And if it is on sale – go for it. Just go for it.

Ok, so first – the nicer pictures. Nevermind the hair on the face.

I found the pants while browsing on amazon. Who does not want pants reduced to 18€?! I was a bit paranoid at first, because who reduces pants to 18?! And people were complaining that the quality is not so awesome. I am quite happy though. No ripped pockets or anything.  Does not stretch too much. The only thing I had to do is to take the pants to the tailor and get them shortened. Since I had a bunch of stuff in the To alter pile anyway, it was no biggie. And the result is great – love the new length and the pants do not wrinkle up anymore! I am still contemplating on getting them in another colour. Because it is a well known fact, that winter is coming and not all pants cost 18€.

Here are some awkward pictures… Me picking up trash from the floor etc.

Wore this outfit to work. At first I had a bit of a difficulty styling the pants, because the waist is higher, than that of all of my other pants. And the proportions can look a bit awkward. But I think this one worked out pretty well.

And, of course, close up of the shoes. Pointy toes!

Outfit: blouse – Second Female, cords – also Second Female, blazer – H&M, pumps – Vagabond, bag – Zara.

 

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.

Pseudo ballerina

Standard

this is my interpretation of ballerina outfit. The skirt ist not really a tutu, but I think it works. A body or however you may call it also suits the purpose and the shoes are called after ballerinas so, we’re good.

 

Found this thang on sale on zalando. It is my now go to top for work. It is conservative, but with a certain flare – a bit of nakedness in the back, sailor collar in the front (sorry for the wrinkled shot – I do not have a stylist on the shoot), tight, but not too tight.

As per usual – goofy photos, because who wants to be serious.

some more mug shots:

and one more photos, because my new lens is that awesome:

Outfit details: Top/body – Ganni, skirt – United Colors of Benetton, shoes – Pretty Ballerinas, bag – cannot remember, something from yoox.

Cheers.
