This post will be quite different to my usual routine but I feel like need to address it and get it out of my chest. Quite recently I have heard the comment about myself and my shopping habits. It was not anything nasty or unpleasant but it made me reflect and I think it is good time to share it with you !
I started my blog and social media journey in order to share and maybe inspire, never to show off. I never buy anything just to take a picture and then give it away or sell… I have been interested in fashion in particular for as long as I can remember. When I was growing up, wanting or pursuing job in fashion industry would be considered risky or irresponsible to say the least. As a result, I have chosen a different career which as much as I love, it does not satisfy all my ambitions.
I do my weekly outfits post to show you guys, how I dress, what I like to wear and where I am investing in. I hope that checking my blog, Instagram account and YouTube channel will spark the joy within you, make you smile and maybe inspire to try something new or different that you have not tried before.
I like my closet big in order to allow me to shop around in my own wardrobe. I love recycling and looking after my belongings. Some items you will see over and over again here as they are true staples in my mind.
Coming out of my comfort zone is something I like to try from time to time in order to experiment and push the boundaries if that makes any sense.
So, I would love to hear from you… Do you find fashion blogs and Instagram accounts useful and enjoyable or self-centred and pushy ?
As I am trying to start a discussion, I am allowing all the comments without the need to leave your email address and all the usual details that are sometimes too time consuming to be bothered !
What do you think ?
I have never really liked Sundays. I was always trying to enjoy them but the thought of a Monday and the tasks and responsibilities that are due have always put me down… Why am I telling You this ? Because most of my outfits pictures are taken on a Sunday.. I will always try to take then in advance but 9/10 it will be that day. So how quickly my approach has changed and now I am in fact excited for every new Sunday…
This particular Sunday when we took the pictures for this post I had clear vision of what I want to achieve. The outfit vibe was to be relaxed, dressed down but with a little bit of edge presenting coated jeans and my new accessory… But from time to time what You set to do and what You actually ended up doing are two different things. I would not have been honest if I said I do not like the pictures we took but they are far away from what I had in mind. The lighting was difficult, there were too many people walking about and the contrast of the shoes, my complexion and the jeans made it pretty difficult shoot..
What I am trying to show You is how to mix casual or everyday wardrobe with some key elements that each of us should have as a staple in Your closet. My coated jeans are defiantly one of mine.. I love them dressed down with a shirt and flats or something more dressy and pair of heels (like here). I have added a new handbag in my collection that I was dreaming of getting for a very long time. I love the colour, hardware and how versatile this bag is. It works perfectly for day and night and over time I will try to prove it !
Enjoy and let me know what if anything You consider a staple in Your closet ?

Some outfits come together without any effort whereas others require some thought and planning. This one took me less than five minutes to put together yet I still felt very comfortable and current (Trends 2017). It is a very autumnal look maybe not adequate to the season we are in but I could not care.
My favourite Paige jeans and brogues that are the most practical pair of shoes You can imagine. Coat is my Zara favourite (previously feature in the Date night post) and the classic LV bag that I had for at least five years.
As I like the coat and its colour some much I have been looking for alternatives as mine is few seasons old and there are few that I like Zara Faux Suede Coat, Zara Trench Coat and my absolutely favourite, slightly unpractical but awesome AQ/AQ Coat.
The only new addition to the outfit is a pair of sunglasses I got for my birthday. You will definitely see them more often as I have to justify cost per wear !
We took the pictures during our stay in Lincoln on Sunday afternoon. The weather was so nice, just right for a walk.
I really hope You will enjoy the pictures as much as I have enjoyed that afternoon !
Thanks for stopping by !
