One of the boys

Standard

 

OK, so this is a more boyish outfit, than I normally wear. I would have been quit comfy in it, if it weren’t for the pants, which keep sliding down…and they have only tiny belt loops for a tiny belt, which does not hold your pants anyway…And the shoes are not the comfiest, but more on that a bit later.

I tried to make the pants look good, but you’ll be the judge of that. Now I know why models get paid…Not everyone can make anything look good…

So, I give you – the awkward pictures.

Some more awkward shots.

Let’s talk sweater for a moment. I got it (of course) on sale last year. I el oh vee e the silk front. Transforms the outfit from boring office to slightly less boring with a twist. And of course my trusty work bag makes an appearance…again. And no, I am not sick of it.

And the shoes – I inherited them – my mom’s friend was about to throw them out, but my mom yelled, that Julija will wear them for sure, grabbed them and did not let go. They do look cool, but…as usual with worn footwear (this is why I do not buy second hand shoes), the shoe adjusted itself to former owner’s foot and of course – in the front they are too tight and in the back too wide…No idea what I am gonna do with them, but they are unfortunately not very wearable. I forget that from time to time and put them on in spite of prior knowledge of their wearability and at the end of the day I just curse.

So there, another office outfit.

Outfit: sweater – H&M, pants – H&M, shoes – Bally, bag – Zara.

Cheers.

Blah Blah New Year’s Resolutions

Standard

Whoa did I fall off the face of the Earth… Not that I do not have anything to write about, I just do not have the energy. I am always jealous when I see how much people manage to do during the day. It does not work that way for me – after a day at work my ass just glues itself to the couch. I go to sleep at 9 in the evening and can barely get up at 6…

I keep asking myself a question, how do those bloggers manage to take their pictures in a decent light? I mean, I leave for work when it is still dark and I come home when it is already dark. I’ve put some crappy pictures on this blog, but I really do not want it to be a standard. Maybe will try taking more pictures indoors, but for now instead of photos I will publish my complaints and the things that annoy me instead of outfits. And now, some good stuff.

I finally got a chance to do some shopping for the first time in a couple of years. Not anything extraordinary – some H&M sale abuse, but I cannot wait for Spring to take the stuff out for a spin. Since my closet is now quit happy with the instant clothing for the time being, I decided that the next thing I will buy will be some fancy shmancy designer piece. Because…well, why not, right? So this is my first New Year’s resolution – get my first real designer piece (Versace for H&M does not count). Most likely shoes, but who knows. This is supposed to be a fashion blog, such resolutions are appropriate.

Another resolutions is – to try out more beauty stuff. The next on my list is nail polish and hot curlers. I kindda started already in November with the nails, but I want it to become a routine.

I also want to adjust my style for the office. I want to look as myself, but not too out there. I do not want to wear some classy grey suits and black shoes to work.

But people here are really afraid of color…I think I am the only one who wears pink or red shoes in the office. Maybe because it is a total middle of nowhere and people are really conservative. But I could be that breath of fresh air, right? The gals are quite excited to see me in my Versace for H&M leggings, but I do not think that the office will get that from me. It is not just the shyness, but I wonder what would the high management think, if I would appear in some meeting wearing leggings with differently colored pant legs and all the rest would be wearing grey suits…

In case you were wondering – these are the leggings.

 

 

The most epic leggings of all time!

So far those are the resolutions. Do not want to be an overachiever… 🙂
