Meet my faux leather vest

leather_jacket_2 leather_jacket_1 forever 21 faux leather jacket forever 21 faux leather jacket forever 21 faux leather jacket forever 21 faux leather jacket

Very specific piece I would say but still so easy to combine!

Recently I’ve started to follow Ashley Brooke on youtube and purchased thanks to her already two things. One of them was this faux leather vest. Here I combined it with sheer top and high waisted trousers and the combination looks.. A bit rough, right? :)
However, it is great outfit for party.  Vest has got chic details and really nice look. Next time I would go for chunky knitwear under the vest together wit beanie and heeled boots.  Also am thinking about some combination of it with skirt, mid length probably.. Any inspirational ideas?
Also, how do you like this outfit?

PS: I found myself posting once per month. Baaaad. Every Wednesday and Sunday keep eye on blog as there will be new post!

Asos washed off boyfriend denim

Nope, I don’t look on the date of my last post..
So much things happen during last month! Finally, we’ve moved. Finally, we have cozy place to be, our comfort zone and time to be active again. And I am back here, in virtual space where I feel comfortable and so good to share my outfits and ideas.

Today I am wearing boyfriend jeans from Asos. Actually almost everything is Asos today as they teased me by sending a code for 20% off. Thanks guys, I am broke. Anyway, The cut is absolutely perfect and compliment to my body as it has got the right silhouette – very skinny in the waist and wider on hips what creates an illusion that I do have some curves! I love to combine it in a bit retro style, with high neck jumper and lovely belt, also Asos. Next time I will be wearing white mesh tights underneath and some white blouse. You can also style the jeans with heels and small clutch! Do you like my outfit today?
Also some great news – I have sewing machine!! Yayy!! It is early Christmas present and.. It is amazing. I will tel you more next time, in sewing post!

Autumn is calling for over knee boots

Well, another “smart” post title is here right?:)
Lately I found myself in control freak zone where I want to rule everything and everywhere. This.. is simple impossible. So I just let some things go its way and try to just breathe sometimes. Do you also have to have everything under the control?
I do gym every day, then work, cooking, cleaning, a bit of blog and some interests, trying to fill most of the time with Daniil. Crazy ride isn’t it? At least I stopped to count every single calorie in my diet and simply am learning eating smaller portions (= my biggest problem).

Currently, I am in searching mood. Searching for pattern books, for things I need to by to start sew again, thinking about designs.. Love it! It is amazing way how to get rid of stress by the way – by doing what you love. So hit the gym and make yourself super tired or sit to the table and work on projects you like, this is like cure.

Guys, can you recommend me some sewing forums or websites for fans of making clothes? I couldn’t find anything what I liked.

Above you can see some pictures we did the other day – the over knee shoes are amazing to look but to wear them? I think it would belong somewhere in the deeper Dante’s hell part! Honestly, Hyde park is 2 minutes from our apartment but in these shoes, it felt like an hour.
Next time, I want them to use for different outfit!

Time for my Timberland boots

Can't wait for summer again! Wearing Levis jeans, Uniqlo jumper and Timberland boots Can't wait for summer again! Wearing Levis jeans, Uniqlo jumper and Timberland boots Can't wait for summer again!

Is it just my problem or do you also experience the tough feeling during getting out of the bed? The mornings are so dark, weather is literally s*it and the feeling, when you can’t see sun outside but still have to go to the gym… Can’t wait for spring and summer! Talking about that – I am already over the winter in my head, searching for trends for next season. Soon I will get my sewing machine and create some very cool stuff. I really cannot wait for the whole process, from picking the right fabric to finishing last details on the clothes… And I can’t wait to show it to you!

Yesterday I took pictures in my new boots from Timberland. As soon as I heard the word ”limited edition” I knew I have to get them. Typical girl right? Long story short (and thank you, Daniil, again:) I purchased them in Los Angeles. To be honest, I don’t think they are so versatile as their nude siblings but whatever. I love pink and you can still do very nice, buffered combinations. Like here – white high waisted jeans from Levis and cozy huge jumper from Uniqlo.

Good karma

_k3a6009 _k3a5986 _k3a6006 _k3a6004 _k3a5997 _k3a6012

I’ve got the feeling that as last weeks we had quite bad karma, now the cards has changed and lately everything is going well. We found an amazing place to live and I literally cannot wait to be there. Honestly, I am the type of person who is already browsing Ikea’s website, Gumtree’s second hand furniture and Pound lands for cheap food storage. And moving will be in three weeks!

To be honest, lately I concentrate more on gym, workouts, eating clean than my blog. Maybe it is just my way how to run away from the small struggles and the fear of career future, my blog future etc. Because I work like this: I need to see results in short time period, I am not that passionate to wait few months or so. So you probably understand it is easier to target my time to gym and kitchen:) But I  work on the fashion part as well, I promise (to myself mainly).

Last weekend we spent in amazing company of my best friend Gabi and her boyfriend Daniel. It was such an amazing time and I just found again how lucky I am to have somebody like Gabi. It is not about seeing each other every day, it is about the friendship and the connection we got together – I’ve known her for more then 10 years and we went through everything together.

By the way, as I am not big fan of New year’s resolutions, I just simply do stuff which I want to do and in the end of the year I just want to look back and say to myself: “Wow, what an amazing year, what everything I’ve done, where we travelled, etc!”
I think this way I will feel better and not like I wasted my year and just waiting for the new one to start with something. Because the thing is, that for the right moment, there is no specific date or time, the only thing which matters is right now I think!
