March

Last month has been the busiest month for a very long time… Both at work and in my personal life constant changes and expectations made the last thirty-one days gone with the wind. I do not share my professional life on my blog as I like to keep those two things completely separate but I can tell you that I have just started a new job and although it is something that would give me a lot of development opportunities, it is new and quite scary at this point in time !

The highlight of March would have to be my visit to Poland. I have managed to go just for few days to see my family and as I do not get to see them as often as I would like, it was something that I am going to treasure for a very long time.

I could spend all day long taking pictures of those drawings… I do not remember them from when I lived in my home city but I absolutely love them !

Blog post that you liked the most in March was from the beginning of the month and it featured one of my favourite trench coats (still available here if you missed it). All the pictures for that post were taken in such a short space of time but they remain my personal favourites as well. Morning light is everything and more I could have asked for…

There have been quite a few things that I have been loving lately from skincare and make up to fashion. Moving forward I have decided to do monthly favourites on my YouTube channel and March edition is available here if you are interested…

What I wore Sunday… all about recycling

Few weeks ago when I was going through the content of my closet, I came across this trench coat that I had in my possession for well over seven years… I bought it because it fitted me well and it had a classic features that I knew would never go out of style. So many years later, I am still happy to wear it without feeling frumpy and old-fashioned.

My personal style has changed significantly over time and I much prefer more masculine items with sneakers and oversized coats worn on repeat (like here and here). But styling classic pieces of clothing I had for a very long time is something that I treasure greatly and would encourage everyone to shop in their closet and give your possessions new life, especially this Spring !

The rest of the outfit is very simple with the only pop of colour being red lining of my trusted handbag. Different shades of blue are very flattering colours and I am happy that I managed to rediscovered them taking these pictures.

That is what I wore this Easter Sunday !

Few more words on the coming trends and what am I going to try myself ?

As I have mentioned in my previous post on the subject (available here) I am not huge on fashion trends… I like to mix things now and again but I have staples in my closet that I will be wearing regardless of their fashion status.

Coming out of my comfort zone is something that I have to work on but trying new trends and reflecting on what I truly love can be beneficial. This season I decided to take it to a next level and have challenged myself to find as many items as possible that I already have in my wardrobe that are good example of coming trends and mix them with the new stuff.

Being comfortable with your clothes, looking after them and buying quality items is proving to be working for me. I cannot imagine changing my entire closet every couple of seasons for both financial and environmental reasons. Quality over quantity, natural fabrics and attention to details that is all what I want to stand for…

Having said all of this, I have done a video of everything I would like to try for the coming seasons and I would love for you to check it out !

Let me know if I missed anything and what are you personal favourites ?

That you so much for stopping by and following my journey !

Fashion trends for Spring-Summer 2018

It became a tradition now that every couple of seasons or so I give you an update of what is yet to come. I personally really like working on these posts as not only it gives me the knowledge on what trends are going to be popular but it also allows me to look at my closet and reflect on what I need to update.

I am not huge on trends but I like to try something new from time to time. Maybe come out of my comfort zone and push the boundaries a little bit further. I will never be the most trend-lead person but I think adding your personal twist on what is ‘fashionable’ can be beneficial.

All of the trends featured below are available on high street as well as high-end. The ones I decided to featured are my personal favourites and the ones I would recommend to try but if you look deeper into the subject, there will be more options available out there.

Before I start, just a quick reminder… Personal style vary from individual to individual. Do not allow to be a ‘fashion victim’ and follow anything that is considered to be fashionable at this minute in time. Adding one or two of these trends maybe more that enough. An individual is so much more that the clothing that she or he is wearing so stay true to who you are !

  • Pastels or ice cream colours

It will come as no surprise as pastels come back into fashion every spring or summer. This year they come back with a twist in a form of ice cream colours. My personal favourite would have to be creams and blues. But if you are more brave why not to try yellows, pistachio or lilac colours ?

  • Trench coat

I love the idea of wearing the trench coat all the time as outerwear or as a dress. The colour and the fit are personal preferences and finding something that suit your style should not be very difficult as there are so many options available. My suggestion would be to invest in fit and the fabric that will last for a very long time.

  • Bold colours

Complete opposite to pastels but strong colours are here to stay. From reds and oranges to very popular bright pinks and yellows. It is not a trend for everyone but I think it can work if you do it right. I would suggest not to mix and stick to one statement shade. Or maybe adding brighter handbag or shoes would be enough ?

  • All about pencil skirt

Buying a pencil skirt that fits and make you feel comfortable can be tricky and the next two seasons will feature a lot of them. I personally love a good pencil skirt and if I was looking for one, I would choose the fabric very carefully. My top choices would be tweet or wool as they are classic fabrics that will come back into fashion sooner or later !

  • Checked everything

You may have already notice from the choice of skirts feature above but check is going to be huge. From blazers to trousers and coats. Choices and combinations are endless and absolutely up to you. I have warmed up to the idea of checked blazer lately and I am going to invest in another one in the coming months.

  • Extra texture

This will be probably the trend that would be the most difficult to incorporate in everyday life without making it look cheap and tacky but fringing and feathers are going to be very hot. I completely agree that is not for everybody so start small and add just a detail- pair of shoes or statement earings.

  • Sneakers

Without a shadow of a doubt it is a trend that comes to me naturally. I love the idea of wearing a pair of white sneakers with any pieces of clothing I can think of from jeans and trousers to skirts and dresses. If I was to invest in one thing out of this post it would definitely be a pair of shiny new shoes. What about you ?

Let me know which of the trends featured above are you interested in and which are you going to miss out on ?

I love doing the trends post and I hope that it shows !

As usual, thank you very much for stopping by and I hope to see you soon…

Love,
