Repetition 1

Standard

so in the next couple of years I will be as poor as a church mouse because we plan to build a house and my husband will also be working just part time in order to finish his studies. Which means major change in our budget. And this means – no more shopping except for the absolute necessary, ya know – socks and underwear and stuff. But I am in the need of constant change in my wardrobe. And this blog will have to assist me in not getting sick with the same clothes over and over and over again.

As you can see from the post title – I will try to make this into a series of posts.

Here we have two mug shots. Same dress – two ways (this sounds tired…but oh well). And there you have it – one sporty and one girly outfit involving accessory change and that’s it.

And a close up of the shoes, since you cannot really see properly in the pictures above. Swedish Hasbeens, I got for a third of the original price (score!) back in May. I loooove them. I can never wear peep toes, because the press on my toes which in order gives me blisters and a world of pain. These, however, do not!

And my beloved Converse with Marimekko print, which you’ve already seen here:

And a bonus detail shot of the dress and a bag.

and some more mug shots with the bad lighting.

Cheers.

Outfit 1: dress – H&M, sneakers – Converse, clutch – Asos

Outfit 2: dress – H&M, clogs – Swedish Hasbeens, bag – Zara

90s

Standard

And here is the lazies outfit I wore in a while. I usually wear just work clothes every day and something like this happens only on the weekends. Wore this to grab a burger at our favorite diner.

Outfit: T-shirt – Diesel (c/o the husband), Pants – H&M, Sneakers – Converse, Bag – Kelly Moore

I am loving the 90s feel all over the virtual fashion world. Platform shoes, t shirts, distressed denim…My t-shirts are usually fitted to a degree…you know – women’s t-shirts. I decided to step a bit out of my comfort zone and embrace the 90s – as in big t-shirts. I used to wear such shirts with leggings back in the day.

Let us talk pants here as well. I saw theses weird thangs on H&M sale last year and since then they’ve been my favorite summer pants. They are part chinos part cargo pants part I have no idea what. The only mildly irritating thing is – they stretch too much and turn baggy. But oh well – comfort is the bestest.

And one more nod to the 90s – high tops. I’ve had a thing for high tops for a couple of years now and was looking for those perfect ones. These awesome converse are from Marimekko collection. Found them for a great price on asos back in February. Here is a little behind the scenes story about the collaboration.

A few more details of the outfit – the awesomeness that is this indigo bag (it is insanely comfortable to carry) and some more weirdness of my pants – zippers!

…some more of the t-shirt..

and the bag again…

Cheers.
