Summer is here!

Standard

 

aaaah, the temperatures are finally rising and lighter clothing is in order. And though it is starting to get unbearable to work at the office, because why would the employees need air conditioning…35 degrees is pretty acceptable, I will not let it bring me down.

This is not the work outfit, just so you know. I wore this to take a walk in the town and get some ice cream.

A little about the outfit – I got the top and jeans a couple of years ago. I like the looser top, so you get a bit of breeze. I find such tops much more pleasant in the heat. The stripes are always cool to wear, methinks. And nothing screams summer more than the jean shorts.

Sorry, no close up of the shoes yet. Got them for a great price from amazon. I have a thing for yellow lately, but the stuff that I like is usually gone in that color. So in this case I got the next best thing – mint. Apparently it was on quite a roll during the last couple of months in the blogosphere…which almost made me NOT to get them in this colour Smiley

And finally – the HAT! Regular baseball caps just do not work  for me somehow. So this floppy hat and baseball cap hybrid was perfect. And, of course, ON SALE! Now that I see it in the pictures, it gives me a bit of a little red riding hood vibe.

Outfit: top and shorts – H&M from couple of summers ago, shoes – Puma, hat – Ganni.

Cheers.

Pseudo ballerina

Standard

this is my interpretation of ballerina outfit. The skirt ist not really a tutu, but I think it works. A body or however you may call it also suits the purpose and the shoes are called after ballerinas so, we’re good.

 

Found this thang on sale on zalando. It is my now go to top for work. It is conservative, but with a certain flare – a bit of nakedness in the back, sailor collar in the front (sorry for the wrinkled shot – I do not have a stylist on the shoot), tight, but not too tight.

As per usual – goofy photos, because who wants to be serious.

some more mug shots:

and one more photos, because my new lens is that awesome:

Outfit details: Top/body – Ganni, skirt – United Colors of Benetton, shoes – Pretty Ballerinas, bag – cannot remember, something from yoox.

Cheers.

Summer favorites

Standard

My reaction to the trend that I like usually goes like this:
First phase – ooooooh! Like! Want!
Second phase – damn, they’re all over the interwebs… looks like an incubator…me no like.
Third phase – hm, are ALL the girls still wearing it or can I buy it already?

This is just some random picture of me in my pink hat, so that the post would not look too lame.

Before I started reading fashion blogs, I never questioned if a trend is still fashionable, can I wear it? Frankly, I still don’t. As I mentioned before, if a trend catches on – it means you will have an enormous variety of choice. If you find something that fits you well, it does not matter if it is still trendy or not, you can wear it all you want. My only problem is, I need to wait until the big wave of the trend passes, so I would not feel like the trend obsessed gal and question if my judgment has been impaired by looking at too many pictures with nice outfits.

Now to the point – you know all those cut offs we’ve been seeing since last year? This trend brought me back to my teenage years, where I really wanted to cut all the pant legs off of my jeans (and I actually ruined a pair).

Anyway, this weekend we decided to do some live shopping and actually went to the store. It was pretty efficient and we did not get tired and worn out after the trip. The secret to successful shopping – setting a goal. In my case it was H&M, a pair of cut off jean shorts. I did my research online and found quite a lot of options, so this was my store of choice.

Here is another random picture to cut in the boredom of looking at a lot of letters. I will call it very artsy – Ladybug on Parsley.

There are a few things that I do not like about H&M. The stores are so huge and there are always so many people. Another annoying thing is, that organization in the store is usually beyond my understanding. All jean shorts hang in all different kind of places and you need to scout the whole store before you find all you need. And I needed to try all kinds of cut offs, since I had no idea what would look good on me. Eventually I picked four kinds and ended up narrowing down to two. One pair I grabbed just because of the light fabric, they were just denim shorts, not cut offs.

The actual cut offs I chose wear husband (boyfriend…whatever) cut. Thought they looked gooo-h-ood, the fabric was too thick for the summer and I decided not to get them.  They looked something like this, just the colour was a bit lighter:

I ended up getting the shorts that were not actual cut offs. Plus one stripey top.

And I must say, I found my summer’s favorites for this year. They go very well together and with other stuff in my closet as well. I am not very happy with the quality of the top, so I will be a bit disappointed, when it will fall apart in about 5 washing cycles, but oh well.

Cheers.

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

Outfit post. August 18th, 2010

Standard

OK, so from the below pictures you can tell – I do not like make up 😀 The only thing that I use on regular basis is mascara (but I have a bit of a problem with my left eye, so for now mascara is put aside), so I would not look too washed out. If there is some special occasion – I use brown and purple eye shadows and brown eye pencil, and sometimes lip gloss. But in general, I do not want my skin to suffer this whole chemistry until I actually DO NEED to cover it up..in like 10 or 15 years :). However, after taking pictures I do see that additional effort is needed.

Also, I would like to have some nicely styled hair too, but first of all – I do not have patience, seconf of all – I don’t know how. I usually opt for some easy-to-take-care-of  hair cuts and be done with it. Put on to do (to learn) list – learn to do my hair. I have a friend who’s a hairdresser, I hope she will teach me or at least contribute to my hair appearance 😀 She does make up too, so we’ll see.

Expression suitable for the gloomy rainy day -me, top, bangle and brooch – Asos, skirt and leggings – Esprit, jacket – Retro jeans, rain boots – Be only.

It’s a pitty that it is so dark all the time, many photos came out quite blurry. So I was left only with these lame pose ones. But I like that my blog is starting to get into some sort of shape, and I wanted to share at least something. Plus, I like the idea of looking at this as my visual diary and not just blah blah. I think it will be cool to look back after some time and see what happened when and how it looked like.

Suspicious teacher’s expression – check.

Gonna do some housework around here and then go play dress up 😀

Cheers.

p.s. who did a rain dance again?!
