Some days all I care about is feeling comfortable - staying in bed for as long as I want, eating nice food, not stressing myself out, wearing simple pieces and not worrying about trends or what is popular at the moment. Those are the good days as I like to call them. Slipping into a pair of your favorite ripped jeans and glitter sneakers because why not? As for the fedora and the scarf in these pics, they were borrowed. My friend Ieva who took these pictures has the best style and I always like what she wears so I just asked her if I can borrow these two items for the photos and I am surprised how well they complete the outfit. Don't you think so? In fact, without them I think it would look kinda boring. But I won't lie, I love this khaki colored shirt from Chiwish and how they go with these CoH jeans. Said it a lot of times before but will say it again, simplicity is key.
One of my favorite things about autumn is definitely layering. You can still be creative and show your tops, vests and blouses without having to zip up your jackets and coats. Throwing on a scarf around your neck and accessorizing the outfit with a statement pair of shoes or a more interesting bag is usually more than enough. So what's not to love about that effortless stylinh right? Although I'm definitely a summer girl at heart, I love wearing a good turtleneck sweater as I mentioned before. That's why I chose this perfect oversized wool knit from Loavies to add to my collection. Since it wasn't very cold in Germany just yet, I was fine wearing a blazer coat over the sweater for a day in the city. To complete the look, I put on my latest purchase from Zara - a clutch with embroidered roses and glitter, and a red lipstick to match. How do you like this look?
The cut out boots' trend has been around for quite a long time. And when I say a long time I mean a few good years. You have already seen me strutting around these Balenciaga black ankle boots that I love so much but I decided to write an article just about them. Why? Well because they are my first pair of designer boots and I will tell you why exactly I chose them instead of any other 'it' pair of shoes on the market. First of all, you know that I am not a very girly girl and heels are not exactly my preferred choice of footwear. I've always liked bulky boots, but comfort has always been a priority. However, I have seen this Balenciaga Ceinture boots in so many street style photos from fashion weeks all over the world. Bloggers and aspiring fashionistas have been wearing them for quite some time. So I thought, why not splurge a little for something that I've liked for a long time?
Happy Friday peeps! I really love those sunny crispy autumn days when you can feel the change of seasons in the air yet you are not freezing and can still enjoy taking a walk. Today I met with my friend Ieva for a coffee and some girly catch-up time. I love seeing people after months and months, yet feel like we never were apart. That's what true friendships are all about. Lately, I've been wearing a lot more black clothes than ever before. And to be honest, I really love it! It's just so easy to throw different pieces together and it makes a perfect outfit without any effort. I also had to buy some scarfs because I had just one in Dubai and it wasn't the best. And now that I am back to flying next week, I am sure some destinations are gonna be cold, so it's good to think in advance.
It always amazes me how peaceful I become when I write blog posts, take or edit photos. It's literally like my zen zone, which fulfills my soul. It's a hobby just as any other I suppose but I am so glad I still love it after all this time. It can be stressful of course, meeting deadlines, getting out of your comfort zone but that's what I've always liked and what I've always said. Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. So even though some outfits I shoot are not 100% me or something I wear on a daily basis, I still do like to experiment with them.
Autumn is one of my favorite seasons. I feel somewhat nostalgic and often find myself wanting to cozy up on the couch and just spend hours and hours relaxing. I also tend to spend more time drinking teas, play fall playlists on YouTube non-stop and light more candles than usual for that warm autumn evening feeling. And turtlenecks become my go-to item in the closet, I am truly obsessed with them. That's my kinda autumn in Europe. Autumn in Dubai is more about sweating less, hot evening walks that are actually enjoyable and less sandstorms. Although both are totally different as you can see, they are both equally enjoyable. That is why I am trying to make the most of this change while I am here for two weeks, because I know I will be reminiscing about it when I am back in Dubai. But for now no thinking about it just yet. Enjoying every moment right here and right now.
