This year birthday celebration was particularly special. Not only it was my birthday last week, but also it is a year today since I published my first post. So may things happened in the past twelve months that I cannot stop feeling and expressing the gratitude towards my nearest and dearest as well as all of my friends and colleagues.
The biggest lesson I have learnt so far is to not to be afraid to pursue my dreams and take actions. Nothing will happen just by hoping that it will happen. Life is too short to regret not taking opportunities and dwell on the negatives. And one more thing that I incorporated in my life… never envy, take inspirations instead !
For my birthday celebration I wore very simple (nearly all black) outfit. I am going through a phase of wearing all black and I have to admit that I enjoy it very much. I have added a deep green dress to the look to make it more vibrant and colourful. As it is a wool dress it does creases very easily so apologies for that…
You will know by now that I love a statement lipstick and this deep red is my colour of choice. I am very tempted to try more statement shades so watch this space !
As I treat this blog as a form of a diary, my original intention was to do it for one year only. I am considering my options but nevertheless thank you very much for sticking up with me for the last twelve months and your constant support and encouragement !
As a child I waited all year for winter to come. I loved snow and everything that comes with winter temperatures… As an adult, I much prefer warmer climate but I would lie if I said that I do not enjoy occasional walk in the snow.
When we started taking pictures for today’s post we did not know it will start to snow. But after only few minutes, we realised what was happening. It was really difficult to capture that on the camera but I am somehow very pleased with the end result.
I knew it would be a cold day and I have prepared for that. My warmest (and oldest) jacket kept me warm and comfortable. I have paired it with a relatively simple outfit and my favourite pair of boots (more on the subject available here). I am determined to get even more wear out of them as they are without the shadow of a doubt the best investment pair of boots I have ever made…
Inability to compromise when it comes to fashion buys, is deeply rooted in my nature. Once I discover something that will be a good addition to my closet, I find it extremely difficult to let the idea of buying the piece go… That was exactly what have happened when I discovered Stuart Weitzman over-the-knee boots !
They are without the shadow of the doubt the most expensive and the most extravagant purchase I have ever made but they are at the same time worth every single penny. As I was lucky enough to get the second pair of the same boot, this time in heeled version as a part of my Christmas present, I decided to film a video discussing their pros and cons as well as some styling ideas and my honest opinion of their usability and value for money.
I think that for all the fashion lovers out there, this video will be useful and will give you a better idea of what you can expect for your money. I have not been disappointed so far and I know that you will not be as well !!
Please let me know if you find this comparison useful and if it something you would like me include in the future schedule…
As usual thank you very much for stopping by and all your likes and comments !
Starting new year, month or week gives me the sense of opportunity to reflect and think about where I am heading. This year I really took time to stop for a minute and try to put my priorities right. What is important to me and what matters most… I really hope that this reflection will accompany me for the rest of the year and I would hope to share my findings with you in the near future…
Pictures for today’s post were taken at the end of last year on one of the festive days. Streets were empty and I had a chance to put on an outfit I wanted to try for quite some time now. I was very fortunate to receive these over the knee boots as a Christmas present and they are everything and more of what I hoped for. Very high and flattering with the beautiful finish and to top it all up comfortable enough to wear them all day long.
I have paired them with one of my favourite dresses and a coat that have been in my possession for well over five years now. Every time I wear it, somebody will always comment on it and as it was a sale purchase, I can definitely say it was a money well spent !
So without further delay that is what I wore that Sunday !
I love autumn… Everything about it, makes me happy. I love the colours, colder weather and even the rain from time to time. As a child and later teenager I waited all year-long to go to the park in September and shuffle through the fallen leaves. There is nothing like it and I miss it very much.
The most autumnal colours I can think of would have to be khaki green, deep orange and burgundy. I love all of them and that is how this outfit came about. I do not own anything in deep orange so I went for familiar pieces with my favourite pair of over-the-knee boots which are another reason why I wait for autumn to come round !
Nothing I am wearing in today’s post is new. I had everything for at least couple of months or years and I cannot be happier with this outfit. If I was to name one thing I would suggest to invest in this particular season, I would be a good and comfortable pair of boots. I love the over-the-knee ones but the choices are endless with variety of styles, fabrics and price brackets. I will link few similar to mine that I like the most if you are interested…
