As you may have guessed from this post I did a couple of weeks ago, flare sleeves are one of my biggest obsessions this spring. You can wear them in so many ways, the most traditional ones being somewhat romantic or feminine. I wanted to experiment with this dusty rose top a little bit and I loved the mix with loose track pants and white sneakers, that might not be your first outfit choice, but definitely looks fresh and unexpected. I hope you guys like this experiment, I have another flared sleeve top I wanna show you in a more traditional combo, so stay tuned.
This look’s another proof that I don’t need actual spring to dress like it’s spring. The moment the snow melts I’m ready to bare my ankles, even if it’s just for a quick walk to a pastry place around the corner. I’m not a winter person and I hate the cold but dressing lightly makes me feel a bit better, if that makes any sense.
Today has been an amazing day and I’m bursting with excitement and gratefulness as I’m writing this. You know how you’re sometimes hoping or dreaming of something and the opportunity comes knocking on your door? Well, today has been full of such opportunities, and even though it’s nothing major I can’t stress enough how important it is to have clear goals and think positive. Those are the two things that I’ve always been taking lightly, but I assure you, if there’s anything in life that really works, it’s them!
P. S. Yo still have a couple of days to participate in my Valentine’s Day giveaway to be able to win a beautiful gold or silver love tag necklace.
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.
Coat – Zara
Sweater and jeans – H&M
Shoes – Adidas Stan Smith
Bag – Saint Laurent
Sunglasses – ZeroUV
Watch – Daniel Wellington
A very simple and obvious color combo, but one of my favorite nevertheless. I just love how the tan color of this suede-looking coat (previously worn here) is amplified by the blue background (actually more navy in real life but these pics were taken at dusk so the exposure settings had to go up).
Also here’s a trick how to wear culottes with flats, sure the cropped pants + sneakers take away from your height, but the top and the bottom are the same color, which elongates your silhouette, so call it even!
Coat – Shein (check out this real suede one here)
Turtleneck – Zara (similar one here)
Culottes – Chicwish (similar ones here)
Sneakers – Adidas Stan Smith (lots of options here)
Bag – Saint Laurent
Watch – Michael Kors
Seriously can’t make myself write a decent text here as I’ve got a fun Christmas event tonight, for which I’m getting ready while typing this with one finger. So many things to get excited for this week, and even more later so bear with me!
P. S. The winner of Jane Kønig giveaway is Rebecca Rosén, congrats! The brand representatives will contact you soon and I hope you’ll be able to get your gist just in time for Christmas!
