About sweaters and skirts

November 16, 2018

One great autumn/winter outfit until the weather gets completely freezing is sweaters with skirts. The best thing about it is that you can match all kinds of sweaters and skirts together. My favourite combination is maxi skirts with chunky sweaters (plus sneakers) as well as skirts/shorter dresses with chunky sweaters and over the knee boots. Obviously, everything looks better with over the knee boots. I've actually been looking for a perfect pair of over the knee boots since my favourite pair from Zara (this one here) is pretty old and looks worn out. No luck in finding a new great pair, I don't know if you noticed, but lately all of them have been made with really poor materials, so I've probably just get my old pair fixed if I don't manage to find new boots that are equally nice.

Getting your photography inspiration going

November 05, 2018

Most of the time photos we see all over the place look pretty similar and are not as creative as they can be. Nothing wrong about that, sometimes we all want to take a simple photo and not think much about it, but if you want to take unique beautiful photos here are some tips and tricks you might find useful.

Comparing styles: retro VS boho

October 24, 2018

Among all the styles that are popular right now, these two from the title are among my favourites. Over the last couple of years retro inspired outfits came back into the mainstream fashion and are everywhere. The same thing happened to boho chic in the early 2010s and is still on as well. While you can wear retro styles all year long, boho chic is more appropriate for summer and spring outfits. People often confuse the two, even I can't sometimes tell whether a piece is more retro or boho. This blouse for example, it is boho, but in a retro way. I know this may all be confusing, but fashion is often a mix of many things. Especially these days.

Apps to use to edit your photos

September 25, 2018
Honestly, I've only recently started seriously editing my photos with apps, before I only used a bit of VSCO and way back when that was a thing Instagram filters. 😂 Editing is much more fun nowadays when there's a lot of apps with all these features and there's also a thing where retro inspired editing came through and became popular. Not to mention grainy photos are all over the place, something that used to be frown upon in the past. In reality I still don't edit my photos that much, there are a couple of the apps I love and I've discovered the majority of them pretty recently. I took all the photos in this post with my phone, and I'll only talk about phone apps here, because I feel like most people do take and edit their photos with phones. 

Dressing in different colour palettes

September 17, 2018

There are so many colour theories when it comes to dressing and fashion, some are indeed useful, some just confusing. They can help you determine which colours look the best on you, or how to style the clothes you have. If you are creating a capsule wardrobe,  you can find tips and tricks online on how to pick the colour palette for your ''capsule''. You can basically pick what works for you, nothing is set in stone and you don't have to follow every rule there is, especially if you find them to be exhausting. Some of them are even outdated, like the seasons theory. If you've never heard of it, it's the theory in which you are one of the four seasons and should wear the colours that match that season. 😂 Of course, there's the warm and cool undertone theory as well, I think you can definitely use this one, but don't take it too seriously. 

A word on asymmetrical pieces

September 14, 2018

This chapter could be called ''how I went from not liking asymmetrical clothing to wearing one of those dresses''. Although I did wear couple of one shoulder items in the past, I was never a fan of these type of garments that are not completely structured. Fashion that deconstructs items has been around for ages and I do like what Japanese deconstructionists and Vivienne Westwood did on the subject, still I look at It more as a type of art and inspiration than anything else. Today similar items are available all over the place, even in fast fashion, but much more toned down, of course. Contrary to a common belief, deconstruction is not only present in minimalistic designer items, it can exist in any item that doesn't follow a form of a regular garment.

How to style super chunky hoops

September 13, 2018

If you haven’t noticed so far, I love jewelry, earrings especially. I feel like they always give a perfect touch to every outfit and make you look well put together. Hoops are one of those statement pieces that go out of style and come back all the time and all hoop types are popular right now. My favourite kind are the simple thin silver hoops, you can just wear them with everything. Second favourite are these kind of chunky hoop earrings that really are more like a statement piece than anything else.
