Pastel Classics – Blue Blazer, Stripes & Heels

April 18, 2015
Blue Blazer

While writing the previous post, I began feeling a bit guilty. Here I was, standing on high heels and declaring I could never wear these except to show off and sit down, but setting some kind of example to my audience. If I don’t wear high heels except on parties and for nights out with my boyfriend, maybe I’m deceiving those who assume that what I show on my blog truly represents my style?

Being a young mother with a baby on your hands or a vigorous toddler to chase doesn’t leave you much time for yourself, especially when it comes to such trifles as facial masks, doing your nails etc. Reading posts about inspirational morning routines (yoga, a green smoothie and the like) leaves me more annoyed than inspired. Yoga, you say? I get up at 5:51AM, and barely have time for a quick shower, not to mention the fact that I carry my coffee with me whenever I go. This is NOT THE WAY TO DRINK YOUR MORNING COFFEE!

Striped Tee & Midi Skirt in Olive

March 26, 2015
Yellow Pumps Shoes

When in doubt what to wear, wear black. When in doubt what to pair with, wear stripes. By stripes I mean the eternal wardrobe staple, the striped tee. An eternal sartorial Superman, it is always ready to come to the rescue, but there are some things to bear in mind here, too – beware of extremely broad stripes – they will make you look broader and attract too much attention to to the upper part of your body. Perfect it may be, we’re not interested in the wasp / escaped prisoner look – too extravagant, if you ask me.

Budget Shopping

The web is full of advice on budget fashion and online shopping. So, instead of giving you the rant on looking for garage sales and nearest outlets (duh), rummaging in your closet for long-lost treasures (been there, done that), creating a basic wardrobe (really?) and sticking to classic colors, I will try a new angle and add some details that might have been left out until now. So, here we go. My personal tips on shopping on a budget and online shopping, all spoken from true, sometimes sad, experience. But first, a short history lesson.

Simply Classic – White Shirt, Oversized Coat, Heels

January 10, 2015
Winter Coat for Women

It seems that the eternal fate of a fashion blogger is to talk about the weather, like one who doesn’t know what to say, but wishes to be polite. Nice weather, isn’t it?

Well, it isn’t. In fact, it’s been so horrible lately, that I had to cancel photo shoots. Twice in a row. Luckily, I was able to dig up a forgotten treasure, shot a few months ago. I hope that explains the excessive quantity of bare skin, that might irritate a few of us here, who are forced to unfreeze their cars every morning, just to go to work.

When in Doubt – A Total Black Look

December 29, 2014
Black Leggings Outfit

Every now and then, I read something about another new black. Sometimes it’s gray, sometimes yellow. Don’t get me wrong, I love yellow and adore gray, but there’s nothing like black. When you want to be especially festive, or simply don’t know what to wear, total black comes to the rescue. I admit that mine was the second case. So, it’s a black lurex top, black leggings, black ankle boots and the softest leather coat I have ever worn. Oh yes, and my favorite River Island croc-effect bag. A total black outfit.
