Summer is here!

Standard

 

aaaah, the temperatures are finally rising and lighter clothing is in order. And though it is starting to get unbearable to work at the office, because why would the employees need air conditioning…35 degrees is pretty acceptable, I will not let it bring me down.

This is not the work outfit, just so you know. I wore this to take a walk in the town and get some ice cream.

A little about the outfit – I got the top and jeans a couple of years ago. I like the looser top, so you get a bit of breeze. I find such tops much more pleasant in the heat. The stripes are always cool to wear, methinks. And nothing screams summer more than the jean shorts.

Sorry, no close up of the shoes yet. Got them for a great price from amazon. I have a thing for yellow lately, but the stuff that I like is usually gone in that color. So in this case I got the next best thing – mint. Apparently it was on quite a roll during the last couple of months in the blogosphere…which almost made me NOT to get them in this colour Smiley

And finally – the HAT! Regular baseball caps just do not work  for me somehow. So this floppy hat and baseball cap hybrid was perfect. And, of course, ON SALE! Now that I see it in the pictures, it gives me a bit of a little red riding hood vibe.

Outfit: top and shorts – H&M from couple of summers ago, shoes – Puma, hat – Ganni.

Cheers.

Outfit Post. Shoe Challenge #4

Standard

So this is crap what has happened to Shoeperwoman. What is up with the universe? Lately I find myself often observing all kinds of weirdness and thinking people = shit (please excuse my French). So much wrong and mean is all around, what the hell? I always tended to trust people, but I guess nowadays it is just being naive…Because that’s what happens when you believe in good in people…trust no one. It is sad.

So, to help Shoeperwoman in her quest for justice, I am posting this weekend’s outfit feat. my pink Blowfish flats and linking to her website 🙂

Outfit: t-shirt – Retro jeans, jeans – Vertus, bangles – my standard set from all over, sunnies – Polaroid.

Above you see a typical example of personal style blogging – nice posing, nice background, average outfit. And below is a typical example of me, because why go through life seriously, right? Let’s bring some silliness into this world and try and stay positive.

Some usual blah blah blah about my clothes. This t shirt is one of my favorites. I like how new things you buy at a store can look so retro. I just loooove this kind of t shirts. Also wearing my ancient pair of jeans, which I managed to take to the tailor after two years of them lying around in my closet – they needed a new zipper. This is my bestest pair of jeans – so amazingly comfortable and look gooooood. I am happy to have salvaged them from the dark and gloomy place that is my closet.

And here is a detail shot of my t shirt.

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.

Stylin’ online. Quirky outfits

Standard

A couple of outfits I created. A bit of a play on animal print trend and jeans overalls.

Happy Decorator
Animal print trend

Dunno if I would wear the one with leopard pants. As I wrote some time before, I don’t think that I would be able to pull of pants like that…probably would end up lookin like I am sporting pajamas…But the one with jeans overalls…with melissa pink shoes…Would be purfect.

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 😀

Outfit post. Grey on Grey and Jeans.

Standard

It was a totally lazy Sunday. On Saturday we did quite a lot of cleaning in the house (including getting rid of expired food and defrosting the fridge…ick…), so on Sunday we just watched Battlestar Galactica and were lazy for the most part of the day).

Outfit corresponds to my mood, which is – “I just couldn’t be bothered…”

I put on my current favourite grey jersey top over my husband’s t-shirt, put on jeans, converse and a snugly long cardigan instead of a jacket.

Oufit: top – ASOS, t-shirt – fruit of the loom, jeans – Esprit, shoes – Converse, cardigan – Only, earrings – from the fair in Vilnius.

Pimpin’.

Closer look at earrings. They are supposedly made of Venecian glass…

Signature “bye bye feet” shot. And evidence of Autumn.

Confused plant.

Outfit post. Posing in the garden.

Standard

We are trying to put our two remaining ferrets with a new company. Since we had a chance to go to the garden of the people who have our potential pets, I decided to try some posing where people cannot see me 😀 Turns out..I’m not that much of a poser… But I did manage to pick few photos out of the bunch of fail. Here goes.

Shirt – Zara, jeans – Esprit, belt – vintage, shoes – Bronx, earrings – gift from my cousin, bracelet – gift, watch – Casio.

Please nevermind the messy hair and focus on clothes 🙂 I wanted a similar shirt for a while now, sort of a loos fit. I found it in Zara in Cologne last week. I love the role up sleeves and the dark blue colour. Will need to investigate how it looks with long sleeves though.

Jeans were aquired in Budapest. I was coming back to them until I found them on sale (and they were still too expensive, but I got them :D). I really love the cut of these jeans. Also the light denim and the percentage of elastane make them really perfect for summer. Definitely my favorite pair.

I got the belt from my moms closet. I’m glad she did not get rid of some oldies, because I found some real treasures when I was visiting back in May.

Shoes are quite old. I got them back in Lithuania around three years ago. A bit of a pain to look after them and after some time I see that I would prefer different heel instead of the wooden one. But they go really well with jeans (not so much with skirts) which cover the heel, so not a big deal then :).

Cheers.

Outfit post. Wedding.

Standard

So, we were not too lucky with the weather, but for picture time at least it stopped raining 🙂 We went to the castle of Paffendorf for some nice surroundings. (I put the breakdown of the outfit at the end of the post.)

Here we are sitting in front of the castle. Behind us is a very nice park.

I kept changing the shoes, because the ones that I got for the ceremony were so uncomfortable to walk in. It is very weird, because otherwise they are very comfy and do not hurt. But the process of actual walking is very inconvenient, despite the practice at home. So I guess these shoes will wait for a sitting down occasion to be taken out.

Since I am not a white dress type of bride and just wanted something unconvetional, that goes with my shoes that I had already ordered, I spent quite a lot of time on the internets looking for a dress. I had a lot of choices, mostly a one coloured dress or a shirt and skirt combination. You know, make the shoes stick out. Unfortunatelly everything seemed too simple for my taste. Once I saw this Eucalyptus dress, I decided that this is the one. Unfortunately it was a similar odissey as with my shoes. Asos did not have my size or colour. So I was googling all over to find it. Eventually I found it on Ebay in my size and the location of the dress was around 30 km from where I live 🙂 It was definitely a sign. It cost me around 29Euros inculding shipping!

I love that the dress is a bit puffed up, so I did not need to buy a petticoat and I can wear it as a regular dress, not just hang it in the closet for eternity to remember that one day that I wore it. The dress has six buttons in front so it is easy to put on. I think on some fancy occassion I could wear it as an overcoat or smth. 🙂

Aprons were a gift from my sister-in-law. They are quite awesome, everyone loved them 😀

My witness, who was also a photographer, said that the rubber boots are the best part of the outfit 😀

In the above picture – we wanted to have some serious schoolchildren expressions, but we could not stop smirking 😀

And here are the outfits that we were wearing during the ceremony.

My outfit: dress – Eucalyptus, shoes – Irregular choice, earrings – gift from my cousin (around two years ago), parka – pac-a-parka from asos. I grabbed a parka for a short walk to the town hall (much too fancy of a word to describe the actual thing).

My husband’s (!) oufit: shirt and jacket – H&M, jeans – Mustang (inherited from deceased uncle), shoes – converse.

My mom loved my parka so much (you can pack it into the small pouch that is sown on the inside of the parka itself), that asked me to get her one too, unfortunatelly they are not available anymore…

We had few stressfull days (especially after the wedding, because our dear pet ferret died the next day – rest in peace our good bear), so I am sad, tired and do lack inspiration to post. I hope my imaginary readers will forgive me.

Cheers.

Outfit post (what I wore this Summer)

Standard

So, time for some restrospective outfit post and since there are no plans for leaving the appartment today and I wanted to post some pictures, I put something together from previous days. A bit hippy and I love it. Plus I had a chance to try out my tripod 🙂 seems to be quite ok, just takes time to adjust (you know, oops, I cut the shoes out of the frame etc.).


Top and jeans – Esprit, shoes – Converse, bangles – from Russia and Lithiania, bag – from grandma.


I got the jeans and the top last year in London when I was visiting a friend and the zipper of my last pair of jeans gave up on me a weekend before. So this was a necessity. And as usual, jeans are too long, but oh well. Until I walk on them and make holes I can console myself that I can wear them with heels too 😀 I think they still look good rolled up a bit. The top has such great green colour, love it. Sneakers I got in Budapest about two years ago on sale. They are rather cool, because they are not of simple one colour, but have flowers on them.
Anyway, back to clothes. I just love jeans from Esprit. Almost all of them are with stretch, which helps jeans look perfect and you do not feel like you are trapped in your pants, but also they do not stretch too much, so you do not look like wearing jeans that are too big. Jeans are always the one thing I put more money in, because they are my go to piece of clothing, when I have no idea what to wear.
I wore this outfit while grocery shopping few months back.

Mah man said, that I have an unfriendly expression in the pictures, so sorry for that. Will try to smile more next time.

Cheers.

Mah man – t- shirt and shorts from Esprit, shoes –  Converse, sunnies – Polaroid.
