This is probably one of my favorite outfits and set of photos ever, but at the same time, it was difficult to pick a photo where I wouldn’t look bloated AF, or like a long-lost Kardashian sister. I think I managed to do it though, and here is the outfit we photographed about 2 weeks ago, on a really, REALLY hot spring day, under what it felt like 30 Celsius degrees. I recently discovered this handmade top, that was either my mother’s or my aunt’s and I really wanted to wear it with a pencil skirt. I thought I found the perfect one, but I didn’t realize that I’d look 5 months pregnant in that. Bad timing to wear it, but oh well, I loved it anyway. Hopefully I’ll have newer photos to show you soon, this time with my violet hair, since I dyed them again on Sunday (finally! The color had been completely faded after 5 months without me dying them). Not that I don’t like this color, but I really needed to freshen them up! Hope you like today’s look! I added my favorite backpack and my lace up pumps to finish off the look, and I loved how it came out! See you soon with a new review, and a new 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.
I recently got this cropped top and I couldn’t wait any longer, I had to wear it! So the very next day I paired it with my favorite skirt, with the cherry print and my cherry colored pumps and went out with my boyfriend. I really love my new top, and I can’t wait to find other combinations from my wardrobe, but until then, here’s the outfit of the day. I also got the chance to wear my brand new mirror sunglasses, the frames of which I really loved. I don’t wear red very often, but when I do I go overboard. It’s one of these colors that look good on me, and I usually get a lot of compliments when I wear it, even though I’m more of a green and blue fan myself. This look is “very me”. Definitely not casual, but not formal either. I absolutely love it. What about you?
Oh my, how quickly the years go by… My little blog now celebrates its 5th anniversary today, and as I always say, I couldn’t be more excited about it. We wanted to do something bigger for the anniversary post, but plans didn’t go as we wanted, so our “celebrations” are really low-key this year. But if everything has gone according to plan, you must be seeing the new (and hopefully improved!) Do You Speak Gossip? since T. and I had been working on a redesign for 2016. We didn’t change much, since we wanted something fresh, but still practical for both you and me. So we tweaked the old theme a bit, and we really hope you like the changes we made (they’re mostly done to the homepage of the site).
I had this outfit on my mind since last year, but I didn’t have the chance to “bring it to life” then. But that’s okay! I managed to do it now, and even though I was reluctant at first, because I didn’t know if I’d like the double plaid in contrasting colors, I actually loved the result! This is the 5th look of my lookbook video (go here to watch it now, and make sure to subscribe for more!), which I’ve promised you on Friday! Hopefully I’ll be back with more new posts, really soon, because I’m all out! The big anniversary of the blog is coming again and I’m stressed because I’m not sure I’ll manage to realize everything I have in mind for it. Hopefully, I will! We’ll have to wait and see! So, what do YOU think of the double plaid/tartan situation of this post, and the contrasting colors red/green/blue?
