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 think it’s safe to say that over the last couple of years pastels have transformed from being a trend into being a sort of a lifestyle choice that simply can’t go out of style, and the obvious pantone palettes have nothing to do with it. It’s like biker chic, you won’t stop wearing your leather jackets just because you wore them for a couple years in row, am I right? Or am I just making an excuse for wearing sweet pink dresses every once in a while?
On a personal note I’d like to say that, despite my crazy schedule and living in two cities all at once this past month, I’m finally starting to find balance in my life and figuring out what I want to do with it. 2015 brought me a lot of eye-opening experiences, including group trainings and working with a therapist, meeting incredible, inspiring people and even though I’ve always considered myself blessed and happy, this made me realize a lot of things about myself that I wasn’t aware of before. I’ll definitely dwell on that in a separate post and for now, happy holidays!
Beige and black is probably the simplest color combo one could come up with but for me it’s also very powerful. Even though everything I’m wearing here is either ripped, baggy or slouchy, I received lots of compliments sporting this outfit yesterday. People said I look elegant, and of course this may have to do with the fact I’m wearing heels and a structured bag, but I believe the classic neutrals helped, too. Finally the weather allows to wear a lot of this trench, which I consider one of my he best high street finds in a while.
I told you I love culottes and two posts with culottes in three days have to mean something, right?
I got these fake suede ones at an H&M sale in Norway, they were available in all sizes and I saw them in every store so I guess they turned out quite unpopular among the Norwegian girls. More for me! Also, I saw this new way of wearing a shirt (unbuttoned and criss-crossed) somewhere on a streets style website and thought this was a brilliant idea, don’t you agree?
Let me tell you one thing, a style blogger is not the kind of person who would ignore weather improvements. On a first warm day most normal people would still wear their parkas and coats they wore the previous day, but not us! We would jump at any opportunity to wear sandals like me here. I swear when we were walking to shoot these pictures everybody was staring at me like I’m a white unicorn, and while I can’t deny a slight resemblance, the reason is because I was dressed way lighter than everyone else, even though I felt perfect and not the least bit cold!
It’s back to winter right now but I’m gonna pretend the weather’s great and wear sandals from now on because consistency is everything in blogging lol.
