Outfit post. Blue scarf, long boots.

Standard

The name of the post sounds a bit like pirate names…I need an eye patch. The outfit itself is not at all piraty, but rather elegant.

Outfit: coat and jeggings – Esprit, scarf – from India, shoes – Bronx.

Camera accumulator died on us so there were only three pictures and only one showable. So there you go.

I can’t remember which top I wore…but oh well.

The shoes were aquired back in Lithuania like…3 years ago…I’m not sure. But they are really great. Thick heel makes them rather comfortable to walk, in, decorative belts or however those things are called add kind of a rock’n’roll touch and the colour adds a nice pop toΒ  dark outfit, which is almost always the case this time of year, since I own only this one coat for current temperatures. Sadly, this is also the only wool scarf I own, so for outfits I can only work with my bottom…(yes I do realize how it sounds :D), that is – legs, since the top is a constant. Ergo – funky footwear and/or tights (p.s. I love how jeggings are so easy to stuff into knee boots).

I am hoping to snap some outfit pictures this weekend if the weather allows, since we plan a lot of outdoor activities.

Cheers.

Outfit post. Rain…Again…

Standard

So, yesterday it was raining cats and dogs, so to speak. We sat all day at home and played Borderlands on PS3. Since non of the food we had at home, suited our taste that evening, we decided to go for pizza. Pizza place is just 3 minutes of walking distance from our place and I wanted to take few pictures of rainy day suitable outfit, so we were forced to go outside. Here’s what came out (plus some amateur tuning).

Pac-a-parka, jersey top and bangle – Asos, jeggings and umbrella – Esprit, rubber boots – Be only from Amazon.de, earrings – from India.

Here is me making a face while waiting for pizza. And the zebra bangle is visible (I am so on trend πŸ˜€ Animal prints rule all).

And this is just another shot that I liked. Judging from my experience of reading blogs, I always stick to the ones with lots of pictures. So I will try to achieve this on my blog too. Less writting, more showing.

So, coming back to the outfit description. The parka is really awesome – you can pack it in a pocket, that is sown in on the inside. There are still some left on sale. I saw something similar, just a bit more expensive on topshop website too.

The jersey top is just awesome – soft and warm and grey πŸ˜€ And jeggings fit very well into long boots and are stretchy and comfortable. The boots unfortunatelly are a bit too big (I had to go down a size, but they are still a bit large), but I just couldn’t be bothered sending them back a second time for exchange.

So, that’s that for a rainy day – something water resistant and a bit of colour.

Cheers.

p.s. I should really start coming up with names for my outfits…otherwise soon I will start experiencing problems with distincting them.

Outfit post

Standard

Today was a gloomy, cloudy day, but not too cold. It was a bit too cold to wear short sleeves though, so I went for simple sporty layers. Here is what I wore to run some errands: to the in-laws to print a couple of pages, pick up chinese food (I was too lazy to cook today..), bring back rented movies, send couple of packages, get some fresh meat from the butcher’s.

Tank top, pullover and jeggings – Esprit, shoes – Blowfish, bag – Mango, bangles – from random vendors in Lithuania and India, Earrings – from India.

Judging by the outfit I am a total Esprit freak πŸ™‚ This brand is a bit more expensive than Zara or H&M and similar chains, but I like the quality that I get from Esprit, because if I buy something, I usually wear it A LOT, and that means I want it to last. πŸ™‚ Hence, I have certain expectations for the quality of my clothing.

Anyway. The tank top as mentioned in my previous post – back up for another similar top I already own. And it gives a nice splash of colour to the dark outfit.

The pullower and jeggins were on sale on esprit.de πŸ˜€ I’m really happy with this jeggings/leggings trend. I am not a fan of transparent leggings, but opaque leggins and jeggins rock πŸ™‚ It is easy to tuck them into boots, but they also look good with ankle boots or ballerinas, or any other kind of shoe really. And I like the bottom detail of these jeggings too. Also I like the feeling of comfort they provide because of the stretch (btw, when I buy jeans, I always make sure it has some elastane in too, so they would feel comfortable and not too rough and hard)…just pockets are missing, but that’s ok. Pullover is nothing too special and out there, but the fabric is really soft and it looks nicely when layered. I cannot wear it on it’s own though, because my chest is too big and the buttons are always struggling… This is also the reason why I have problems finding proper button down shirts and blouses. Because if I want them to be tight,Β  but not show off my bra through the gap it is quite difficult to find. I always need toΒ  try one size biger, but then they look too big oO.

Shoes…I really love these shoes, they feel like slippers and look really cute. They are of Blowfish brand. But no matter how happy I am with them, I must say, I would not pay full price for them (I’ve got them on sale too), because 50 Euros is a bit steep in comparison with the quality of a shoe. I hope they will last until next year, because I wear them a lot and they do not look too sturdy πŸ™‚

Hope you had a nice day too. And I need to go clean ferret toilet πŸ™‚

Cheers.
