I don’t know about you guys, but I personally never had a love & hate relationship with UGGs. Maybe it’s because of the really cold temperatures I sometimes find myself living in, that only these boots seem to cope with, but I always loved their minimalistic styles. I’m a huge fan of chunky boots over skinny pants, like in the old times of Givenchy or Isabel Marant, and these boots right slightly remind me of that silhouette.
I chose the classic chestnut UGGs for a short road trip with a friend the other day and I kept the rest of the outfit as simple and cozy as possible, but I definitely see myself wearing them in my looks of the day because the styling possibilities are numerous and I wouldn’t mind bringing more coziness into some of my more fashionable outfits. For every season I find a pair of flat shoes that I wanna wear all the time and these UGGs might just be the one! I do intend to challenge myself in creating a couple of less obvious outfit combos so stay tuned for that!
I hope you guys had a lovely New Year and already sorted out all your resolutions for 2016. I’m finding it difficult to express everything I expect from myself in 2016 because 2015 taught me that there is no limit to what I can do and achieve.
Some of my defining moments in 2015 were:
– moving to another city and choosing personal styling as my final career path
– seeing therapist for the first time in my life (I have to confess I faced an identity crisis this summer and getting professional help was one of the best decisions in my life, if you guys ever doubt – go for it!)
– attending trainings and reading a ton of books on personal growth
– learning to meditate
– Paris Fashion Week
– meeting truly inspiring people that I can learn a lot from
Some of the things I plan to focus on in 2016:
– finding balance between work and pleasure
– building a strong body
– traveling to places I’ve never been
– getting back to learning French and Spanish
– reading books I’ve been saving on my Ipad throughout 2015
– learning to network and delegate
As for the look above, as you can probably tell the pics were taken near Musee du Louvre in Paris. I always forget to post everything we shoot on our trips and was happy to find them browsing through my folders yesterday. It’s super casual as it was taken on the last day of exploring the city, I hope you like it.

Strolling along Canal St Martin on our last day in Paris in my striped poncho, which doubles as a scarf and a blanket on a plane. Probably one of the most versatile items in my closet that I try to stock up on ever since blanket capes became a thing. I can’t believe Paris happened almost a month ago, even though this has been a one hectic month for me. Can’t wait to go back as soon as I can, I’ve definitely left my heart there.
Here’s a black and white outfit I wore on one of my last days in Paris. The venue of a morning show was next to Pont de l’Alma, which was a great opportunity to shoot this outfit only a 10-minute walk away on Rue de Monttessuy – the place from which, in my personal opinion, the Eiffel Tower looks the most impressive.
Too bad this wasn’t at sunset, the light and the colors would be amazing, but I’m pretty happy about how these images turned out, even though on that day I forgot to take a hairbrush with me, and that for me is worse than forgetting my phone and wallet. Need to brush that hair every 30 min, that’s my secret of staying sane

This has to be my absolute favorite outfit from Paris regardless of the fact I’m wearing a $16 top and my underwear is slightly showing through the skirt, although you might not notice that. I’m obsessed with striped knitwear this season and pleated skirts are sort of fresh and new to me and I felt really feminine wearing this to the Chloe show on my very first day in Paris. And as I mentioned before, these lace up heels (previously worn here and here) are the most beautiful shoes I’ve ever owned, so add that to a perfect combo.
