That is an outfit that instantaneously made me feel cool
and I am not referring to the colour palette. The top in a very pale lavender colour buttoned up with a small peplum is another charity shop acquisition. The colour and cut are extremely flattering. The same can be said about denim. another random charity shop purchase. Because of the crop, the trousers remain relatively cool even in high temperatures. Some accessories for more interest and brogues for some comfort.
Another take on pastels. Plain colours but all with different textures. Knitt, lace and denim. Hugely comfortable, vastly wearable and casual. I have swapped the belt for another one that picks up on the colour of the trainers
They do remind me of my youth and the 80-ties style is very much up my stream. The colour is perfect, pale blue, so all other pastels harmonize with it as shown in this example. The blouse highly elasticated can be worn in many ways, but the most comfortable is just pulled above the shoulders. Let me also draw attention to the bag, highly inspired by Chanel is surprisingly roomy and despite clinking of the chains comfortable to wear. I have finished off with some pearly jewellery for an even more feminine touch to offset the masculine trousers.
You know the feeling when you find something that feels fun.
I had the feeling when I have found this jumper. It looks like taken straight out of the 80-ties. The colours, the colour blocking even the golden buttons with no purpose other than just a decoration. Can’t say that it is going to be the most versatile item in my wardrobe, but it is a jumper and it is reasonably warm. I have paired it with navy blue denim, a white coat and gold earrings- not much of a brainer. Not sure how many more styling ideas that jumper can give but wearing it that day was fun!
I felt like I have discovered something new even though it has been done many times before. Where do I start? Let us start with the trousers. I have finally found wide-leg denim that fits at a reasonable price too, so I have bought 2 pairs in 2 different colours. The pair in question needed a small adjustment as the hem was too low. the perfect length is just above your ankle bone where your leg is at its thinnest to flatter the most. I have combined it with a basic, fitted buttoned-up white shirt and added a brooch in navy blue just under the collar. But I wasn’t done yet as I decided to wear a knitted vest on top of that. The whole outfit is budget-friendly as it is mainly Primark and all of the pieces will be staples in my wardrobe that I intend to wear in different ways. It’s also navy blue and white- favourite colour combo of many people.
Flares always make a statement in any outfit. I do need to be in a mood to wear them as they always draw the attention of passers-by. Living in the era of skinny jeans any other cut will be noticed especially the opposite one. But this time I think I have cracked it. I do not look like taken out of the 70-ties. Whether it is the baseball top or the oversized blazer or the hair pulled back. I do like the look.
The bomber jacket barely visible in this picture has a floral print with a pale gold metallic thread and pale pink background and it’s stunning. Combined with a much plainer cardigan, skinny jeans and pale pink brogues makes the outfit wearable and cool. want more colour keep the cardigan open, want it less wrap the cardigan up. the colour combination is neutral with a bit of a pop of metallic. overall a croud pleaser.
is what I need right now. It’s getting warmer but the mornings are still chilly and they require a light jacket. I had this light jacket for a while but found it a bit too intimidating until I have figured it how to dress it down. I was eyeing this paper bag waist jeans in December last year, but then we went to a lockdown and I thought it was all over. When I saw them again this spring I had to have them. Love the colour, love the cut, intend to wear them a lot. Another impromptu purchase was this very cropped hoody. It makes sense to have something ending on your waist while all my recent buys are all high waisted style.
I have already mentioned that I got this jacket a couple of years back in a charity shop for a fiver. That might have been one of the best purchases, The richness of the colour and the quality of the jacket are stunning. Also, the trousers are from a charity shop and the colour is pristine. The bag is an everyday favourite. All navy blue, so much nicer than boring black.
This look is all about two colours. The white adds freshness but also breaks up texture as the shirt has some broderie anglaise.
I was gifted the above trousers. Let’s be honest it’s not the style I do gravitate towards, but there is nothing wrong with experimenting with clothes. I wanted to wear them with a street style top and also something cropped so the top doesn’t blend into the trousers to create one big shapeless blob. And then I remembered a cropped jumper from a charity shop. While purchasing the top the shop assistant suggested I would also buy a pink necklace to go with it. Wanting to please the woman as she obviously was given a task to push more jewellery I have bought the necklace too. Never actually wanting to wear them together. But today I have changed my mind. If you want to wear something whether it goes together or not, just damn wear it. Everyone’s style is different and that’s the beauty of fashion.
