Variations of pink

Standard

I am a fan of pink. I really don’t get it, why pink ist considered lame and women who wear pink usually regarded as simple and what not. Pink is for baby girls…Also, everyone immediately starts talking about Barbie. I think pink is awesome. Such a vibrant and fun colour. And Barbie, she got style.

So let us start with the visuals of the pink shoes. These are not exactly Barbie pink, but they are in-yo-face enough. I love the retro feel from a clunky heel and round toe. And they are comfortable. Even if I have an appointment on the other side of the factory, I can wear these on that day, without having to worry about how I am going to walk there.

And here is the rest of the outfit. I actually wore this to work last week. Pink and green is the color combination, which brings that feeling of almost summer.

And some more clothes from the family of pink-purplish-redish whatever – a skirt and a bag.

Some more retro with the grandma jacket and huge buttons. And it turns out to be a pretty decent outfit.

And to conclude the story, some awkward shots. Because that’s what happens when you take pictures. Keepin’ it real.

Jean shorts

Standard

There was quite a huge trend last summer methinks, where almost all blogs and fashion mags where jumping on a cut offs’ wagon. I love jean shorts myself, but had to wait it out until the trend died down. When it is on a roll, the outfit will be lost in a see of the same stuff everyone wears. Dunno…would make it less special or would feel like mimicking.

So anyway. I finally got myself some awesome jean shorts on H&M sale. Don’t think they are summer appropriate though – the material is quite thick. So just after I got them in November or December, they turned into my Autumn uniform.

Wearing: sweater and shorts – H&M, button down – Etam, boots – Timberland.

Paired with opaque tights was very weather appropriate (and I do dress weather appropriate 99% of the time).

Let’s talk boots now. I did not have any flat shoes for the transitional (or however you want to call it) weather. When it is no longer warm enough to wear ballerinas, but not quite the time for the boots with fur.

I am really happy with this acquisition – I am wearing the boots all the time – they are and look awesome, so cost per wear is reducing as we speak. The 150Eur price tag is completely justified and approved. I had to go half a size up though, cause my usual size 38 (UK 5) was a bit narrow and I like to keep the option open to wear more than one pair of socks without compromising the blood flow to and from my feet.

I will leave all the responsible and green aspect of the boots aside. Cause even though there are partly recycled materials used in the production of the boots, yet those boots are not made locally blah blah blah and not sure if the recycling would compensate for the carbon footprint due to transportation and what not. I just think that these are good looking boots of great quality and I am sure I will be wearing them for years to come. Also not bad, that a couple of plastic bottles where turned into parts of the shoe, right? And I said I would leave this aside..whatevs.

Here is a detailed shot of a sweater. All of my sweaters are sortta shape revealing and lately I felt like I need to get some stuff, that is looser. The colour is something I’ve been drawn to for a while and I like the littlo pocket.
Not sure how long the sweater is going to last, since the quality ist not superb, but I think it already paid off, cause I wear it “ALL THE TIME” (HOW ANNOYING IS THIS PHRASE?!)

Cheers.

Cognac

Standard

I am missing dresses and skirts in my winter wardrobe, so here is a new addition – a full brown skirt (also a result of H&M sale abuse).
This is an outfit that I wore to work last week.

There is some more brown stuff going on in this picture apart from a skirt as you can see (a blogger who chooses her words carefully might say – earthy colors or cognac, hence the title of a post) – brown elbow patches (yay!) and stitches on the cardigan and brown boots. And some awkward posing to top it all off.

I am quite happy with the skirt, despite it being synthetic and being a total pain to iron. And here is a detailed shot. I changed the belt that came with the skirt with a belt, that I got from my mom.

And here are the awesome elbow patches:

Plus the boots:

Outfit details: skirt- H&M, button down – Etam, cardigan – Esprit, belt – vintage, tights – dunno, boots – Bronx.

So there you go. Cognac.
