ALL-BLACK & BIRKENSTOCKS

all black and birkenstocks 1Dear followers, I am sorry for not having uploaded my blog for the last couple of days and to make up for it, I will post not one but two outfit posts today. The first one is my all-black casual look with my white birkenstocks and the second one that is coming later on, consists of five new outfits to try on while it is still hot. Oh yeah, summer came back the other day, thank God!

For today’s errands, I went all-black with a touch of white on me feet. Tapered pants are quite tricky to wear and combine especially when they are chic and made to wear with high heels. Sneakers don’t work, gladiator sandals either, but birkenstocks do the trick and what’s more, they dress down the look to make it wearable during the day.

TODAY’S ALL-BLACK LOOK

ALL-BLACK LOOKI thought I would be writing about cooking and sharing with you my beef Bourguignon recipe in today’s post, but it happens that I somehow erased the pictures and will once more talk fashion by sharing pictures of my personal #lookoftheday.
As you can see, I kept it quite minimalist today by wearing an all-black look consisting of a cashmere little black dress, tights and my favorite ankle boots.
This little dress that I occasionally wear as a tunic over jeans, is one of my favorite items of clothing I do possess. Not only it is made of high quality fabric, it also happens to be the most comfortable dress I’ve ever worn. The 3/4 sleeves are another reason why I’m fond of it. As far as I can remember, I always had a special thing for 3/4 sleeves. Like even right now, my pajamas top sleeves are rolled up so it gives it a 3/4 sleeves look. Don’t know where that comes from!?! Or maybe I do… Anyways!
To finish off the look, I went for a beige and white cardigan with a winter motif to keep me warm.
Besides, I thought it gives the look an effortless, easy feel.

Take care guys!

CHILLIN’

BLACK T-SHIRT 1As the weather isn’t top these days, the first pictures from Paris are shot inside my sister’s apartment wearing an all-Gap look while chilling and watching some old episodes of One Tree Hill. You see, since I moved to Slovenia I got used to watching series and movies in original version, and in France everything is synchronized and channels that offer both French and original versions are rare so it’s a bit annoying, thanks God Internet exists! Speaking of series, I am a huge fan of Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, House of Cards, The Walking Dead, The Bridge, Shameless, Mad Men, Newsroom … and while waiting new seasons to be released, I am watching Suits a quality show that I discovered recently and I recommend it because it is quite entertaining and interesting.

Stay tuned guys as more pictures of beautifully decorated Paris are coming soon.

Good night,

PLAID, LEATHER, KNIT & SUNSHINE

I honestly cannot be happier these days!
After two weeks of depressive weather and poor light, the Sun finally showed up its face yesterday. I woke up with so much energy and positivity. The sunshine has so much positive influence on my mood that as soon as I opened my eyes, I jumped out of bed (which is so unusual for me), started organizing my day, my week, the holidays and the list goes on… That felt good!
After a productive morning, I had a very productive afternoon too! Don’t know if it is the weather or not, but I got a clear and definite ‘yes’ from my husband when I asked him if he’ll go with me for a session of shopping at the mall. The last time we went shopping together was like a year ago, you know how men are…
Anyways, before going to the mall we stopped at this beautiful spot not far from where we live to take a few shots. The view was impressive as usual. Is there anything prettier than a view of sunny snowy mountains ? It is so relaxing and pure and every time I see them, I cannot wait to go snowboarding.
The outfit I picked out for yesterday was super comfy and cozy, exactly what I was looking for since shopping can sometimes be very exhausting. I went for the plaid shirt as it goes perfectly with the actual mood. Tartan patterns always reminded me of Christmas so it was an obvious choice. I usually wear it buttoned up but this time I wanted to play with layers and decided to wear a white t-shirt under it. The faux-leather pants added a rock’n’roll therefore interesting vibe to the whole look so that is why I wore them instead of a pair of jeans. As for the shoes, it didn’t take me long to choose. I will never wear anything else than sneakers for a shopping session, never! Hats off to all those women and girls I saw yesterday strolling through the mall and carrying their shopping bags, their bulky coats and wearing heels! Speaking of bulky coats, I definitely didn’t want to carry around my down coat which tends to annoy me pretty quickly as I have to have my hands free to touch all the fabrics, so this time I turned on my brains while still at home and decided to wear my warm knitted oversized cardigan which once I was hot, put in the shopping bag.

Take care guys!

LOOKS OF THE DAY / 15.11.2014

LOTD 1Love how black, grey, white and cobalt blue work together. It is actually one of my favorite combos both for casual wear as well as when it comes to dress for a more formal occasion. This popular Alexander Wang x H&M dress is the piece that caught my eye the most.ย  Love the body-kissing shape, the color-blocking and the AW’s all over it. I paired it with a bad-ass biker leather jacket to keep it all in the kick-ass context Alexander Wang created over his sporty and military collection. As the most coveted pair of sneakers nowadays, these simple leather slip-ons were an obvious choice to complete this ultra-modern casual look. The metallic cobalt blue mini pashli shoulder bag brightens it up and instantly gives the look ‘ce petit quelque chose‘! Oversized black sunglasses are not mandatory but strongly suggested. ^^LOTD 2This look is also very inspiring as it mixes several styles which are extremely interesting when worn together. First, there is this eye-catching sweatshirt from H&M’s Denim Conscious collection worn over a leather white mini skirt with a zipper right in the middle. Sporty + Sexy. Second, the double-breasted coat adds some elegance to the two previous pieces. The biker ankle boots give a bit masculine and rebellious twist to the set and the back pack is the ‘childlike‘ piece. I don’t know you, but I really like the result! LOTD 3Dressing for work should be the easier as there is an existing code for workwear. What I mean by that is that either you wear a pant or a skirt and eventually a dress. This time I used pants and simply paired them with a classic and timeless white shirt, a chic blue sweater and a grey coat. The magnificently made flashy orange point shoes are here to brighten it all up and simply because this bright color goes so well with blue. LOTD 4Maleficent-inspired sexy all-black ensemble whose particularity is that it makes every woman looks fierce, from skinny Angelina Jolie to chubby Kim Kardashian, this outfit brings out the sexiness and beauty of every woman wearing it.

Enjoy folks!

OVERSIZED KNITWEAR

LOTD OK 1

Today I was wearing : Zara navy blue turtleneck + DKNY Jeans navy blue flares + a brandless oversized cardigan bought in Paris last year + Georges brown and navy Mary Jane shoes,
a white H&M scarf

There is nothing like an oversized, cozy yet fashionable cardigan when you want keep it warm and fashionable. Its neutral shade makes it easy to combine with almost every color. My all navy blue outfit was inspired by the style from the 70s as I decided to wear my 3/4 sleeves turtleneck with a pair of flares which are as you can see, extremely long, too long for my short legs! Therefore, I can only wear them with high heels so I have decided to make today a high-heels-kind-of-day and went for a smooth lady-like look. I love my makeup natural for daytime especially when I am wearing neutral or lighter colors.

Cheers guys!
