2016 Shoes Wish List

First week of 2016. I’ve made a footwear wish list, of my most desired shoes for the coming year. My choice was based on current fashion trends and of course practical considerations of the items. So I want some new sneakers, mule, something silver, something with fringe and something futuristic looking...bursting my closet!!!

I'll be back as soon as possible

It's a really busy time for us.We needed to do a lot of things because we are moving to Hawaii. I didn't have the time and opportunity to take any fashion pictures...actually I wore the same t-shirt, shorts and sandals almost all month because we rented our house out and are living in my brother-in-law's basement. Also, most of our stuff was packed and prepared for shipping to Hawaii at any moment.
I don't think I'll be able to do any posting for next month either...but I'll be back as soon as possible.

Inspiration Monday: Vest + Boyfriend Jeans

Last time for Inspiration Monday I used the same photo of Kate Hudson, only I wore my vest with a bright pair of jeans. This time (as I promised) I mixed my tweed vest with distressed jeans...and I'm thinking that I love this look even more than the previous look

Side-Slit Dress with Wide Pants

I love my relatively new zippered side-slit dress...I mean, is it a dress, a tunic, or both? Now that we’re getting a few chillier days, I took full advantage of unzipping the extra high slit and wearing the dress as a tunic with a pair of wide legs pants. If you want to see how I wore this dress as a dress you can check this post.

Inspiration Monday: Vest + Tank Top

This time for Inspiration Monday I'm going with Kate Hudson in a red vest paired with distressed jeans. This outfit caused a lot of negative comments because her saggy-ass jeans were paired with hot Christian Louboutin ‘Air Chance’ slingback pumps and a sophisticated vest. Most people don't like a mix of luxury polished and trashy items. I don't know what to say; I kind of like the combo of the opposing styles.
Anyway, I was more impressed with the vest and tank top combination.
Since I don't have any bright vests I decided to swap the colors and put on a tweed vest with neon-orange jeans. Next time (because I love the feeling that the vest covering the tank-top gave me...I didn't have to think about the bra straps crawling out of the tee!)
I would like to try a vest + tank top outfit with distressed jeans...and then I will be more confident if a classy vest can go with distressed jeans.

A Folk Sweatshirt

I'm just thinking about starting a new "all summer challenge". We will probably live in Hawaii in September, and when you are moving from a four season state in a solid-summer-all-year-round state you need to find what you actually wear the most. Since the new residence has limited  space I definitely need to cut the amount of my clothes. So this "all summer challenge" will be really hard for me, because I love to keep my old clothes in case I'd like to wear them again one day .
So I planned to start this challenge on June 1, but our weather  today is not very much like summer - it's raining and only 54 degrees...but I started this challenge anyway.

A Little Bohemian

My biggest problem as a fashionista is that I don't have a recognizable style. You know when you follow some bloggers for a long time, you can say this one is always classy and sophisticated, that one is always trendy, another one is always casually stylish, someone else is always boho or retro breezing, etc. I'm always jumping from one style to another because I just can't stand being restricted to one official I make an excuse and call my "undefined" style 'artistic'. If I was a less changeable person and was able to stick to one style I'd probably choose bohemian chic.

Inspiration Monday: Striped Skirt

This time for Inspiration Monday January Jones was chosen. Can you say that the outfit of the Mad Men's star looks pretty close to the costumes of her character from the first seasons? I was inspired by her striped midi skirt, although my outfit doesn't have that late 50's or early 60's vibe. Actually, my outfit reminded me of the late 80's, when I wore you know my secret - my striped midi skirt just hangs like a skirt, but actually it's wide pants.

Inspiration Monday: Tie a Knot

Here's Kate Hudson for today's Inspiration Monday. She is rocking the knotted shirt with light jeans. 
To be honest, I especially love tied up shirts worn with skirts. For me it's kind of a weird, exposed feeling when keeping the groin area uncovered, especially in light skinny jeans.

Day to Night

Today I’m making a Day to Night series. This 'errands running' outfit is easy to transform into a 'night out' outfit. The burgundy color (now it's fashionable to call it 'marsala') is so trendy right now, so I just made a simple, fun outfit playing with this color. With flats this is one of my most comfy outfits.

Inspiration Monday: Printed Top

This time for Inspiration Monday I'm going with Britt Robertson. Actually, we don't have much in common with our outfits... I could say that she has a printed top and I have a printed top, but our tops have completely different prints considering fit and shape.

Cargo vest

The options to pair the cargo vest are endless. It's such a versatile item, you can rock it with a dress, skirt, pants, or shorts. You can put it over a t-shirt or button down, even layer it with wool or a leather jacket.
This is my new favorite outfit; the cargo vest with a striped, light blue button down shirt. I just love this color combination.

This time for Inspiration Monday Emma Stone was chosen . I had plans to wear this outfit on an upcoming trip to Hawaii.

Two ways of layering a shirt dress

You probably would agreed that a shirt dress can be the most comfy dress in any wardrobe. Besides the comfort, a shirt dress can be a very versatile item. You can always cinch your waist with a different type of belt or even a fabric tie...or update a basic shirt dress with on-trend accessories and it will look different.
Personally, I prefer a loose fit, so when I get tired of the simplicity of the dress I can get creative with layering.
These are just a couple of ideas to help you get a bit more wear out of your shirt dress. This time I layered my shirt dress with a plaid button down shirt (I borrowed this idea from Alice of "Happiness at Mid Life").

Inspiration Monday: Leather Pants

This time for Inspiration Monday Two Birds choose Charlize Theron in leather pants and an oversized button down shirt. So this is my version of her outfit. Don't you think that sometimes the leather pants can be a good alternative to everyday denim?

Easter time

For a few days we went to Virginia for Easter and our grandson Liam's christening. We don't see him very often so mostly we spend time with the baby and for me their wasn't time for the outfits I forgot my camera. So just to post, here are some iPhone photos.
