Outfit post. Shoe Challenge #3

Standard

I took advantage of the good weather to take some pictures for the shoe challenge (check the Shoeperwoman website for more detail). These shoes, though are my current favorite, are also quite difficult to incorporate into an outfit. They look good with rolled up jeans, but I just couldn’t be bothered shaving my legs just for few pictures, hence the black tights. So sue me.

Outfit: skirt and tank top – Esprit, top – H&M jacket – Tiks, shoes – Asos Totally Suede, scarf – Soaked in Luxury, earrings – from India.

There’s not much to report today, except that I cleaned the windows, so just enjoy the pictures ๐Ÿ™‚

Cheers

Outfit post (Shoe challenge #2)

Standard

The sun is finally coming out and Spring seems to have finally arrived. As a consequence I am not feeling so sleepy all the time. That’s why I give you!..the result of a Sunday walk.

Outfit: jeans and tank top – Esprit, hoodie – Vertus (some Polish knock off brand I think), jacket – Tiks, belt – Fat Face,ย  Shoes – Converse, sunnies – Polaroid.

This week we discovered that it is now allowed to go behind the nearby forest into some former mining area (pictures to come). We had quite a stroll and took some nice pictures. It was quite a perfect time to practice my posing – not many people around. But now I think that it is not worth it – it is much more fun to have strange photos that reflect my personality. For example on the picture on the left I am about to sneeze.

Anyway, no fancy shoes to show off, I do not tend to wear heels in the fields or forest. Hence, the reasonable choice – Converse. I acquired them in London a couple of years ago. I bought the jeans in London as well, got quite a good bargain if I remember correctly.

Since I needed some comfortable outfit for a long walk, I just added some colour with the weird belt and a tank top, not to be totally gloomy. I think it still looks better than the standard German outfit for such a thing – couples usually look totally alike – wearing jack wolfskin windbreakers (or of some similar company), jeans and trekking shoes and usually accessorizeย  with those sticks for walking (you know, the ones that look like skiing sticks) and a big dog.

People often assume I am an angry person, but it is just my facial expression ๐Ÿ˜€ It indicates how well I’ve slept the night before. Not very well, judging from the above pictures. And since I do not hide behind the ton of make up, this is what you see in the pictures – angry me! Deal with it.

Enough of none essential BS, here are the details of my outfit. My belt, which I bought while being stranded at Heathrow airport – my flight was insanely delayed and I, of course, searched for comfort in retail therapy. (Btw,ย  it turns out I wore the belt upside down…my typical scatter brainness.)

There is a silhouette of a horsie on my hoodie, even has mane and stuffs. You like?

Cheers.

Outfit post

Standard

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ˜€ Anyway, I was happy with the way my outfit turned out.

Have a nice Sunday ๐Ÿ™‚

Cheers.
