Outfit post


Yesterday we paid a visit to the music store in Cologne. I was going with two guys, so I needed to wear something, that I would be able to keep up with them (roll eyes out) and feel comfy on a train. So here is what I wore.

My outfit on 7th of Auguts 2010

I am used to dressing weather and place appropriatelly. So, for +26 this outfit seemed perfect, i felt cool and comfortable. The sandals were not too high, so basically felt like sneakers, just with more ventilation :). And of course – cotton skirt and top in Summer, FTW!

Tank top – Esprit, skirt – United Colours of Benetton, sandals – Clarks, bag – Mango.

I bought these sandals last year in London. Clarks is one of my favorite shoe brands. I am not always amazed by their design, but if they manage to come up with something cute – you will not regret buying a shoe of this brand. They are just so soft and comfortable, and the leather is just awesome.

The skirt was bought (again) for office purposes about 2 years ago. I love high waist and the skirt has pockets! (when I mentally went through my collection of skirts, I realized, that ALL of my skirts have pockets :D.) As a kid I always hated high waisted pants, dresses or skirts and would always try to pull them lower. But now I really adore this kind of clothing. It gives the vibe of cute.

The top was purchased as a back up for a similar top I own 🙂 If you really wear something basic A LOT, you should stock up, IMHO.

And the bag was featured here.

Before I left I also put a bunch of bangles and bracelets on and of course the earrings (photos to come). Without the earrings I feel kind of naked, they are essential part of my wardrobe and I think deserve a separate post 😀 Anyway, I was happy with the way my outfit turned out.

Have a nice Sunday 🙂

My sandals have arrived.

Steve Madden Sandals on a Foot

So simple and elegant. The colour is pefect. And – they hurt my toes. Sigh. And before I pack them and send them back with my breaking heart, I took some pictures. This is how I would incorporate them in an outfit (please ignore the bruises on my legs…I am just not able to walk past any corner without working my clumsiness to the limit):

Soft jersey top – Asos, skirt – Esprit, bag – Mango, sandals – Steve Madden Tarney.

I got this Asos top as a present for myself for my birthday this year. Skirt was aquired for office purposes about two years ago. This is the second outfit, where the skirt actually feels in place. Normally this skirt doesn’t work with anything except for white long sleeve shirt, so I’m happy I can finally wear it differently 🙂 The bag I got about a year ago and it is my constant accessory this summer. My love for clutch and carry-in-your-hand kind of bags really got good treatment this year 🙂 But that’s a topic for another post.

And here’s me in all the glory of my back wall and side of my closet. I don’t own a tripod yet and my dear photographer is working, so this is as good as I can give you.

My fear of high heels and how to treat it


I love heels, but if I end up going somewhere alone, I opt for flats or low heel shoes (around 7 cm)…I have a fear of trippping, which I need to conquer. I am way too clumsy. And even though I actually can walk in heels, I am always self conscious and keep trying not to fall and feel really tense. (Too much pressure…:D )

Anyway. Yesterday I realized, that I do not own any kind of high heel sandals. And I mean HIGH. Since it is sale season, I was wandering around the interwebs in search of a perfect shoe to help me face my fear. Usually if I want to wear heels, I warn my beloved man of this, so he would be by my side in case I fall 😀

So. At first I looked for clog type sandals (I thought it would be quite easy to walk in them, because of bulky heel), but they looked a bit too chunky and I wanted something more classy. I also wanted something simple (in other words easy to style), yet chic to help me overcome my fraidy cat syndrome of walking in heels by myself.

I stumbled accross these Steve Madden sandals. Which have classic look to them and a high heel plus platform.

I found them on Javari. Some shoe shop that teamed up with amazon or smth. So you can log in with your amazon account and use stored addresses and stuff. Which is really convenient if you ask me. It is really annoying to keep logging in and signing up etc.  They ship internationally and it costs around 5 pounds for European countries. The shoes I chose are also on sale on asos.com and are a bit cheaper than on Javari (but only UK delivery), but they do not have this particular colour. I was considering a black pair, but the ones are of patent leather and gives me a bit of a stripper vibe, which I would not be able to pull off. So I went for a bit more expensive ones in brown. Will share some pictures once they arrive 🙂 And hopefully, I will dare to wear them 😀
