Thankfully I managed to take my outfit photos with the help of my cousin the other day, so I’m back with another outfit post. You know how much I love those. My outfit of the day was rather unusual to my style. I called it modern spinster meets wannabe rebel fashionista. haha Sometimes even I’m tired of my signature style and want to experiment with my wardrobe. So I knew I wanted to wear this skirt, which is actually ankle length (do you remember it from my post back in 2012? Well, if you follow me since then, you’re awesome, and thank you very much!) and combine it with my biker boots for a little bit of edge, and to keep it from looking dull and boring. Not sure if I succeeded, but oh well, it looked cool for one day! Thoughts?
This is a rather casual outfit that I wore a couple of days ago to meet with T. I was “praying” for the rain to stop so I can get a few photos for the blog. I’ve run out of posts guys! I’ll do my best to take some for Wednesday; otherwise I’ll have to find something else to post about. hehe. Back to the outfit now… When I bought my boyfriend jeans, I said I’d only wear them with pumps, since I found the combo with booties quite unflattering on me, but I was running late the other day, trying to find what to wear, and I thought I’d give it a try. And to be honest, I really liked it. Not as much as I like it with pumps, but it was a bit edgier for me and it’s nice to occasionally get out of my comfort zone. What do you think about this look?
I wore this outfit on Wednesday when the weather was around 18 degrees, and I could easily stay out without my coat on. It definitely felt like early spring, but I know that we’re just in the middle of halcyon days and we’ll soon be back to winter. So I try to enjoy it while I can. I get unbelievably happy when the weather is sunny and preferably around 20-30 degrees. I absolutely loved my outfit of the day! Never thought I’d like a layered outfit so much. Of course I wore tights, but the beanie was purely for the sake of style. This sweater is also one of the new entries in my closet, and it’s already become a favorite. I layered it on top of a long shirtdress and a mini skirt, but if your skirt is longer, or if you’re just feeling daring, feel free to wear it without one! 😉 Mine was shorter than I expected so I didn’t. Shorts can also work with this look. Play around with layers and find out what works for you! Happy weekend my little gossipers. 😛
I’m really excited about today’s post, because…. I went shopping and came home with quite a few finds. At last! I really needed to buy some new stuff, and I couldn’t help myself anymore. I broke my “shopping diet”. I hadn’t actually bought anything since last August, when I bought 2 pieces of clothing. So I got a few things, and among them were 3 of the items I’m wearing in this post. I found this gorgeous mint coat, with 50% off, and I couldn’t leave it behind. The funny thing is that Kleoniki had the same idea for another mint coat, and we met up downtown unintentionally looking like twins, so we had a good laugh. If I could I would have bought the baby pink, and baby blue version of it as well. Also new are the sweater and this beautiful hear-printed shirt. I kept the rest of the outfit quite simple and black, to keep some balance since it’s still winter and I had a long day ahead of me so I wanted to be warm and comfortable. Oh I love this look! What do you think?
I’m sure you’ve noticed that when I’m wearing a skirt, it’s either a pencil or a full one. I absolutely love pencil skirts. I find them very ladylike and sexy in their own kind of way. Sexy shouldn’t be confused with vulgar. A woman can be sexy and look like a lady at the same time. It’s how you present yourself and how you want others to think of you. I’m not a prude, on the contrary. But I respect myself and my body, and I think outfits show your character. And if your clothes look “cheap” then you might lose some respect from the people around you. So be very careful of the way you dress, because your outfits are like a mirror to your personality and personal values, ladies. And pencil skirts can instantly add some class to your looks, in my opinion of course. They can be dressed up or dressed down, like I did that day, with the addition of a cozy sweater, a warm pair of tights, and my tall boots. Do you like the result?
