Earthy

Standard

Ever since I hit the big THREE – OH back in July  I’ve been into low key colors. Nothing too pink or at least pink, but not too often. Maturity is catching up with me or something…Thought, does the level of pink in our outfits really define the level of maturity…I doubt it, PINK FOR LIFE!

Back to the topic of low key –  a low key outfit I wore to run some errands on my last day of vacation. Most of the pictures turned out either very serious, me not looking at the camera or me sneezing. The sneezing thing will look much better as a gif…maybe I’ll even make one. But as for the outfit – these pictures were the most suitable to show – you can see details quite well here.

Here we have one more serious expression and a picture of the bag. The bag is not as cool as it looked in the shop. My husband got it for me a couple of years ago, when I saw it at Deichmann, while waiting for the new tires for the car. I expected it to hold its shape a bit better, but it just extends like rubber when you start filling it up with life. Still, I quite like it, especially for colder weather.

and yes, I’ve got a new haircut and am showcasing it from both sides. My hairdresser for some reason cut it and styled it to turn outwards…I looked like a first year student at best and was not sure about what the hell am I going to do with dat hair. I am really not a hair product person and have no idea what to do with hair in general. But apparently, there is nothing flat iron cannot fix. I came up with a very simple routine for the mornings and am really happy with my hair now. Not too short, so I can still bind it in a pig tail and not too long so I can wear it loose and it will not be in my way. Crisis averted (#firstworldproblems). Plus, makes me look like a serious woman at work.

and the shooooooooes. I soooo loooooove theses shoes. I don’t wear them to work, so I savour the time I do get to wear them. Asos sure did a great job with these.

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 🙂

Cheers

Socks, wonderful socks

Standard

I am so glad that socks are making a comeback. I don’t own any black socks (well, maybe a one pair at most), but I never have the chance to show them off. But now… 🙂 Socks were all over runways. FERY GOOD! (I will not explain this internal joke, I just use this phrase a lot.)

I love that the socks were showed off, but there is one but. I would never stuff my besocked feet into sandals or shoes because of one very simple reason – the shoes would stretch and when I would want to wear them without socks, they would have turned into overstretched uncomfortable to wear shoes. Since my budget does not stretch as the shoes might, I need to consider the practical side too. So, up until know the only option of fancy legs were tights. But I abandoned wearing fancy tights few years ago. (Now starting to pick up on this old habbit again)

Back in January I bought a pair of great shoe boots (or booties as I’ve read on the internets) from Shelly’s (they deserve a separate post). And now I can show off my socks, that were hiding in knee high boots and under jeans, too! In the above and below pictures you can see my collection (not full) of socks I own. I also ordered some colourful tights a few days back. My Autumn will not be moody, that’s for sure 🙂

All of the socks (except for one pair) are of Lithuanian brand  Skinija. I just love their designs and quality. Unfortunatelly their website is not too great, but I hope my photos speak for themselves. So if you have a chance to visit Lithuania, you should be able to find these socks in any supermarket.

The grey socks on top are over knee socks. I asked my friend to buy them and bring them from London (since we do not have Top Shop here and other over knee socks are really expensive – roll eyes out) when she would come to my wedding. They are awesome and already made a debut during the dinner after the wedding (not sure if  there are any outfit pictures, because I was not taking any pictures…but I am sure I will repeat the outfit).

I also looked up tights on the internets and rediscovered this brand of tights called Veneziana. I think it’s a Polish brand, judging by the domain pl :). I used to wear tights from them back in Lithuania. I remember I was not too facinated by the quality, but the design really compensated for this flaw.

And I was looking up leggings too and discovered this cute and wonderful brand called Pepper tree. I’ve never heard of them before, just found them on amazon.de. And now I am eyeing this pair of leggins 😀

So, recommendations for Autumn – colourful socks, tights or leggings and ankle boots to show them off! Enjoy!

Cheers.
