Excuse a little radio silence, I’ve been juggling work and pleasure all week, but I do have a couple outfits to show you! This one here features my new olive green dress that I’m currently in love with. I wanted to get an olive green top but couldn’t find the one, but a dress in this color might be even better!

It’s one of those items that make transitioning into fall that much easier, the color is super trendy this year, plus it’s gonna look great in combination with jeans, which I can’t wait to try out.

I’m wearing:

Dress – Shein (also love these ones: 1, 2, 3, 4)
Gladiator sandals – Choies
Necklace – Jane K√łnig
Bag – Saint Laurent
Watch – Cluse

A couple of unplanned pictures taken pretty late in the evening while walking round Lviv. Our apartment is only a couple of minutes away from this old market square with all the ancient European architecture and thousands of tourists at any given time. Because it’s so near, this is where we usually end up having dinner or meeting friends.

Also, notice my top – I’m intentionally wearing it backwards! The neck seemed to be cut way to low for me so the top was just hanging in my closet for months. But you know those times when you have to leave in two minutes and can’t find anything wear? This is when my creativity is at its peak, so after trying on the top just to remember it was too revealing I decided to put in on backwards and I know you can easily tell I’m wearing it wrong, but that’s the way I like it :)

I’m wearing:

Top – Shein
Denim skirt – Mango
Espadrilles – Stradivarius (similar ones here)
Hat – H&M
Bag – Marc B

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you’re having a good one!

Here’s a more laid back look I sported a couple days ago. I wanted my hair to look messy that day, but since I’m the owner of the straightest hair in the world, it’s always such a struggle for me. To achieve the look on the pictures above I washed my hair with a volume shampoo, tumbled it while it air dried, used a lot of hair mousse and large rollers, blow-dried it and then set the whole thing with a LOT of strong hairspray. The whole thing fell down in about two hours, so was it even worth it? Let me know if you struggle with your hair the way I do?

I’m wearing:

Top – Choies
Girlfriend jeans – Asos (ON SALE! I’m wearing size W26 L32)
Bag – Saint Laurent
Sliders – Asos
Watch – Daniel Wellington

mom jeans & statement heels

Sometimes I remember I have hidden gems in my closet like these snake print heels that I think I’ve only worn once, but I remember how excited I was to buy them and how many outfit ideas I had with them. And it’s not that they are hard to style, I’m just a bad shoe owner in general – most of my fancier statement heels almost don’t get any wear, and I still can’t stop buying them. First world problems, I know, but still something to think about. Are you a shoe maniac like me?

I’m wearing:

Shirt – Glamorous (love these ones here and here)
Jeans – Romwe (similar ones: 1, 2, 3)
Bag – Asos (love this one)
Heels – Asos (in black and nude, similar styles here and here)

It’s been a while since I last made one of my inspirational Sunday cravings posts so I’m renewing this section with one of the hottest trends happening now. You’ve probably noticed that 2015 is about all things lace up. First we had these shoes that I’m personally crazy about, and now we have bodysuits and tops and dresses, which are so 70’s and yet flattering and sexy (let’s face it, not all of the the 70s-inspired garments can boast that!).

Surfing the web I was actually surprised the online stores already have so much diversity in the lace up department. How do you guys feel about this trend, YAY or NAY?
