Hello my dear readers! How are you? This is the last photoshoot we did a while back, with one of my latest purchases: this striped jumpsuit. I got it about a month ago, and I loved it so much, I was eagerly waiting for a chance to wear it. But when I finally did for this shoot, and to do some grocery shopping afterwards, I realized that it was way too small for me. It was actually chocking me when I was sitting, so it had so go back. Fortunately I did find and bought the larger size, which I then gave to my seamstress to alter, so it sits perfectly on me. Hopefully I’ll have more luck with it. It looks super tight and not at all ironed at these photos, which irritates me because it was indeed ironed just before we went out. Let’s ignore those creases though, and look at the whole outfit. I paired it with my sleeveless blazer, and my white pumps. I also wore my mom’s vintage & handmade bag which has come back to fashion this summer. What do you think? I loved it! 🙂
If you’re watching my vlogs, you might remember this look from a couple of weeks ago. It’s the look I wore to a christening, as a quick solution because I didn’t have any (more) formal clothes with me at home, since I left everything too formal at my parents’ house. So I “whipped up” this look, to go to a Saturday morning christening. The top is actually a midi dress, with a pleated skirt on top. I loved how the colors and styles looked together so I decided to wear them like this. And since the outfit wasn’t very formal by itself, I added my glitter booties, to give the look a more glamorous touch. Since the weather is still playing games, I also had my burgundy coat with me, and of course I also paired it with my burgundy bag, which you already know how much I still love. After the christening, we went for lunch with my family and T. and enjoyed the good weather. Hope you like my look. See you next week, with a new outfit post! 🙂
I’m looking at these photos and thinking about that warm sunny day, and I miss it so much, because it’s been all about rain lately and I can’t handle it anymore. I just want it to stop. It’s been the second year in a row that’s been raining both on my birthday, and nameday (which was yesterday!), and I hate the weather for that. May was one of the most sunny and carefree months. Not too hot, not too cold, but now it’s moody and rainy all the freaking time. Ending my rant here, to talk about this outfit, that I enjoyed wearing on that warm sunny day. I combined my striped culottes with a crop shirt, that you normally knot on the front, my mom’s handmade bag, and my old D&G slingbacks. Did you know that slingbacks are back? They are, but I can’t say that they’re the most comfortable shoes I own, so I’m not planning on getting a new pair. So what do you think about my look? Hope you like it!
These culottes are also one of my latest sales purchases, and even though I loved them, I’m still not sure about them, and how they look on me. Most of my friends complimented me on them, so I’m eager to make them work. For their first outing, I decided to go with my off-the-shoulder top, a previous purchase of mine, but I wasn’t sure about the shoes. Since I’m not that tall, and the pants are “cutting” me around the ankles, I didn’t want to wear a pair of shoes that would do the same. I rejected most of my pumps because I definitely wasn’t going to wear closed pumps in such heat, but I didn’t think of my peep-toe pumps. So I went with my initial thought which was my oldie mules from the early 00s (possibly), but I was not too happy about the final result. I said I wasn’t going to buy new mules, because it’s a style I don’t wear that often, and I don’t particularly like, but now I’m finding myself wondering if I should. All in all, I actually loved this outfit, but I think it would have looked hell of a lot bet better, if the mules were higher, and had a more modern heel. Can’t wait to try my next combination with these pants!
This post is called sporty chic 2.0 because the 1st sporty chic version was this one. So, SO long ago… One of the first months I was a redhead. My hair was actually redder and less copper back then, but I’ve found my color after that time. Back to today though, or more accurately yesterday, when we took these photos; I originally wanted to pair this outfit with heels, but I’ve put my sneakers on to run to the car to take something, and I looked in the mirror and thought, “I like it”. And since I was going for breakfast and coffee after these photos, I thought it would be more appropriate to wear sneakers than heels, so I changed my mind. You’ve seen me hundreds of time wearing heels, but only a handful wearing sneakers, so I guess that’s a refreshing change from my usual routine. What do you think?
