The outfit of the week is based on red, burgundy & grey. I played with some old clothes & accessories, such as my sweater, shirt & bag, and some new ones, like my jeans, coat and booties, to create this look. A normal person would have probably worn this outfit with a pair of biker boots, or something similar. But I decided to glam it up and wear it with my glitter booties. I just love them so much, and I love how they reflect the light on a super sunny day like this one. So new and old items from my wardrobe came together, to create this look, which I really loved. My new coat is going to be worn a lot this winter, I can feel it. I was just too bored of my old black ones, I wanted more color. And you know how much I love burgundy. And my skinny jeans matched the whole outfit perfectly. Do you like my look of the day?
It’s been a long time since I wore a total black look, and it that needed to be changed. That day I was in a mood for something kind of strict looking and monochromatic, so I wore my black skinny jeans, black start-print shirt, black blazer, black heeled booties, and my black lunch bag (do you know that they’re having a come back?). Told you, total black! I really loved this look! So simple that you can wear it at the office too, maybe with a lower pair of heels if you like. The weather has been very good to us lately, but I can’t say the same for 2018, which has been terrible for us so far. Hopefully that will all change. And honestly, can’t wait! How was your new year so far?
Once in a while, I do wear a super casual outfit too. You know that my casual style usually involves some low heeled booties at least, but on a very rare occasion I will go out in sneakers too. Believe it or not, I don’t find sneakers that comfortable. I prefer low heeled shoes to sneakers; plus I feel more like myself wearing heels (even lower ones!). That being said, there are days when I just can’t bother with any kind of heels. That was one of those days for me. I wore a simple pair of blue skinny jeans, a light green sweater, my teal green jacket, and my thick teal & blue scarf, which I really really love. I love these colors in winter, and teal used to be my favorite color for years, before I started wearing grey and burgundy more and more. And I love the fact that it makes a nice contract with my red hair. That’s always a plus for me. So what do you think? Do you like my look of the day?
You know how much I love burgundy in winter, and you might have also noticed that I’m slowly trying to expand my outerwear collection for the past few years. So a few weeks ago, I started searching for a new coat, and I found this beautiful burgundy one at Spartoo.gr. It’s from Benetton, and I bought it at 20% off. I got mine at size FR38 (IT42). I was going to size up, to be able to wear thick sweaters under it, but the site said to size down, so I got the 38. I love its color and fit, but it is way thinner than I had anticipated. It is really beautiful though, and I think it looks good on me, so I’d definitely be keeping it. Even though it’s more on the violet side of burgundy, I paired it with my burgundy bag and sweater, and my favorite over-the-knee velvet boots. I loved the look, and I’m glad we were able to photograph it that day, because a lot has happened in my life since then, and that’s why I had to take a week off blogging. I’m back now though, and I’d be posting regularly from now on. Hope you like this look!
Oh my, 7 years of blogging, how fast the time went by? It feels like yesterday that I started this little blog of mine. I couldn’t celebrate my blog’s birthday in another way than an outfit post, could I? Here it is, and a festive outfit post I might add. With a balloon and everything. haha This year we decided against a bigger helium-filled balloon, because it was a total fail, ’cause the helium made the balloon look deflated in last year’s photos, because of the cold weather and we didn’t want to repeat that. So here’s a smaller and cuter one instead. I built the whole outfit around burgundy color, and I really loved how it turned out. It looked even better in real life believe me! I’m definitely going to wear it again for a night out with friends or the boyfriend.
