Bet you guys did not expect color blocking on this blog? Neither did I, since usually it’s one of my least favorite styling techniques. Even though camel is considered a neutral color, it looks really strong combined with a dark green blazer, a recent sales find, and I loved the combo so I had to wear it the other day to meet a client. I have to confess I often opt for blazers and pumps to appear more serious than I really am
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!
If there’s one thing in my life that I’m never gonna quit it’s definitely searching for the perfect jeans. I’ve been craving a pair of vintage Levi’s for God knows how long, but last month I finally caved and got them off Ebay only to realize the wash and the fit are fine, but not perfect. I do love how they look on me, but I can’t help but wonder if I’m gonna be slightly luckier with my next denim purchase, and so the search continues.

I’ve lost count of how many outfits this camel coat was featured in on the blog, probably at least a dozen. It still remains one of my go-to outerwear pieces even though I constantly update my collection, and I don’t plan to change that in the near future. I actually think a good camel coat is one of the best wardrobe investments, especially if you’re a business person or prefer classic dressing. I guess I’m neither of those so I like to keep my camel coat outfits on an edgier side, in this case with loose-fitting jeans and a lot of metallic hardware.
Hi guys! Turns out I can bring myself to post an outfit from Paris while being in Paris!
This lovely coat dress was custom made by a young Ukrainian brand called Awake specially for my trip to Paris. I love all the cut outs and the oversized silhouette and I love how it looks with chunky heels, even though initially I planned to wear it with other more fashion week appropriate shoes. I can’t wait to wear it also as a coat once I get back home, maybe throw it on top of a turtleneck and some over the knee boots!
On another note, today is our last full day in Paris, we’ll be catching a plane tomorrow afternoon. It’s been an amazing experience, especially compared to the previous fashion week I went to in 2014. More on that later, right now I’m running out to get some souvenirs for friends and family, will have to be super creative since I exceeded my baggage limit on my way here!
