Outfit Post. Winter Uniform

Standard

As I wrote in a previous post – winter is a dormant time for me. Plus I like to feel comfortable in my clothes. Which means – I want to be warm and able to walk. I own only one winter jacket and two pairs of shoes for winter. The infamous UGGs and a pair of The North Face boots (I got them for the trip to the mountains).

Outfit: Boots – UGG Knightsbridge, pants – GAP corduroy (got them on sale online), jacket – United Colours of Benetton cold weather down jacket, headband – ASOS, gloves – can’t remember the brand..from amazon, bag – Keen (can wear it inside out as well), earrings – from the fair in Lithuania.

So, whether I want it or not, my winter outfits turn into a day to day uniform. It IS annoying, but I’d rather be warm than lose my toes or bitch about the cold. I mean how can girls wear peep toe boots, when there’s snow outside?!

I found corduroy pants on sale just before Christmas and without too much thinking I ordered them (gift for myself :D). Now I will tell you why. Because they are frickin’ warm. Jeans always attract cold and no matter how much I love denim, butย  I think corduroy or wool is THE way to go in winter.

Now I will tell you why I am pro UGGs. I think it is ridiculous to try and stay ‘true to your style’ blah blah blah during winter, if you know winter the way I do.

It is simply too cold. I want my shoes to have fur inside. For some reason most of the winter boots are not lined with fur, they just have fur in the shaft…I mean…Have the manufacturers seen snow or walked in the temperatures below 0 degrees? What the hell?

I do not want to wear heels while walking in the snow or on ice. I man I would love to, but this is the time of year I sacrifice everything for comfort.ย  And during this season you cannot simply change into ballet flats, once you are tired of heels, you know.

Another thing, winter boots are very expensive, so I cannot afford to have many pairs..yet ๐Ÿ˜€ So, the reasonable thing is to invest into really warm good pair of boots.

Prices for UGGs are a bit ridiculous, but I found mine on Ebay at relatively reasonable price last Winter. I am wearing them for the second season now and they do their job well. My feet are warm, I do not need to put on ten pairs of socks ๐Ÿ™‚ And they look pretty nice.

I love that shoes of this model have the zipper in the back, it is so much more convenient to put them on, also tuck pants in.

There are few down sides – first of all – the sole – I was paranoid that it will wear off quite soon, but so far – it is holding more or less OK. The bigger problem now is – the little stones on the streets, that are used on ice and snow, instead of sand. They stick into the soft sole…but so far so good. Another thing – if it is wet outside (melting snow and stuff), I do not wear them – this kind of leather (suede) doesn’t like water. It is better to buy boots of simple leather, not inside out one ๐Ÿ™‚

But anyway, if you can afford good warm winter boots – go for it! And UGGs are a good choice, IMHO. I just think, that UGGs look a bit weird, when worn during warm season, e.g. with shorts and t-shirts…but who am I to judge.

I wore this outfit on our day trip to the town of Aachen. And here is what I was wearing under – (not visible Pull and Bear navy button down shirt) Asos jersey top and a guitar thing on a chain ๐Ÿ™‚

And here is an example pharmacy fashion in the above mentioned town:

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. Grey With a Hint of Orange

Standard

Sudden burst of warmth took over our town yesterday…+23 in October…I’m not complaining ๐Ÿ˜€ It was a perfect opportunity to take some pictures outside. We went for a walk in the town, where the market and some Lunapark was taking place.

It is the same outfit as here, just with different shoes and earrings. So, here it is.

Outfit: top, earrings and shoes – Asos, skirt – Esprit, bag – Mango, sunnies – Polaroid.

Learned to pose a bit more. I think turned out quite OK.

You can’t see, but I am holding a bottle of water in my left hand…perfect poser :D.

It was my last chance to not wear tights and wear my feather earrings one last time this year.

And here is a couple of random photos from the market.

Candy.

I have no idea what this is :). Hope you had a nice weekend too.

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 ๐Ÿ˜€ 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 ๐Ÿ˜€ 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.
