This spring I’m reinventing the utility jacket that I undeservingly forgot about for over a year. I do believe it’s a timeless piece but due to the excessive consumerism that I’ve been indulging in for the past years I was unable to find time to wear it and space to store it in plain sight. But when packing some essentials to move to another city this jacket was one of the ten outerwear garments I allowed myself to take with me and I’m glad I did, not only because of the safari/military vibes that are trending right now.
Utility jacket – Asos (similar ones here, here and here)
Shirt – Sheinside
Jeans – Asos (lots of cool styles here)
Lace top – Topshop
Bag – Asos (also love this orange one here)
Boots – Aldo
Watch – Michael Kors
Sunnies – ZeroUV
Guess what, I spent the last two days in my new apartment repainting walls and when I stepped out to grab a latte this morning it was already the kind of spring we’ve all been waiting for the entire winter. A perfect weather for a fluffy cardigan and some slip ons! I simply can’t wait to enjoy the many months of sunshine and warmth ahead of us, I hope it’s as warm where you are!
70’s or not, normcore is my top choice when it comes to enjoying a relaxed Sunday in the city. Wouldn’t you guys want to wear this outfit to a late breakfast on a sunny terrace with your boyfriend? Or to a flower market? Or even the office? I just ordered this bag and now contemplating all kinds of outfits to go with it and can’t wait for the warmer days to finally arrive!
Another 70s inspired outfit that I wore yesterday, I have to admit it’s not yet a 100 per cent comfortable walking bare legged but I just had to sport this combo before I forgot about it. I don’t know about you guys, but sometimes I come up with brilliant outfit ideas that I completely forget unless I try them on and take a picture the very instant Not to mean that this is a brilliant outfit idea, but a blue dress + tall suede boots is one of my favorite combos this season. I would definitely wear them with a suede coat (like this one), but until I get my hands on it, this brown one I’ve had for a couple years will do.
Coat – H&M
Dress – Lindex (similar ones here and here)
Bag – Zara
Boots – Zara (similar ones here, cool patent ones here)
The lovely city you are seeing on the background is called Lviv and it’s just become my home. My boyfriend and I signed a lease agreement a couple days ago and finally moved yesterday. We’ve been traveling back and forth for a whole year maybe because both of us have clients here, but finally decided to move and pursue a more relaxed lifestyle.
I’ll be delegating most of my translation work and invest more time in blogging, styling and enjoying life in general, which seems like the only right solution after an entire winter of long work hours and sleepless nights that resulted in irregular pulse, dark circles and bad skin. I’ll tell you more once we’re all set and I hope you like my outfit from a couple days ago!
