fall wootds- moccasins

22 Nov

lovelies, i know it’s been a while that i haven’t posted any outfits, so i’m going to make up for it now, by breaking up about 15 outfits into smaller posts.
i still have some fall outfits i want to show you, some are from early fall, and some are more wintery- unfortunately the weather decided to fast forward through autumn, and we’ve had about 2 weeks of mild weather, then straight to real cold.

i noticed that one of my favorite fall items were my minnetonka moccasins, they are so comfortable and cool, i’ve tried wearing them with pretty much everything! since today is thanksgiving (happy thanksgiving everyone!), i thought it would be a cool first post, you know, with the indians wearing moccasins and all :)

jacket: h&m
dress: h&m
shoes: minnetonka

cardigan: ellison
t-shirt: new yorker
jeggings: james jeans
shoes: minnetonka

jacket: zara
scarf: mango
cardigan: h&m
t-shirt: mango
jeans: zara
shoes: mango (black moccasins, with studs- sorry the pic is so shitty!)
bag: bcbg

jacket: h&m
sweater: h&m
jeans: zara
shoes: minnetonka
bag: LV

you will notice that the moccasins aren’t the only recurring item in the fall outfits, my h&m (light) parka has been one of the most versatile things i’ve ever bought. i’ve worn the crap out of it- the model, cut, material and color make it perfect over pretty much anything- i was so sad when i stowed it away, but i can’t wait to get it out again in spring!

work outfits of the days- wootd!

23 Jun

it’s time for another round of work outfits!
i’ve decided to simplify and shorten the titles and the sentences with the common acronyms ootd- outfit(s) of the day(s) and wootd- work outfit(s) of the day(s).

leather jacket: ashy london
cardigan: michael kors
t-shirt: vero moda
jeans: kate moss for topshop
shoes: blink
yes, that is a watering can in the background- had to take the pix at the office because i was late in the morning, and it was raining all day!

necklace: h&m
t-shirt: zara
jeans: h&m
shoes: wittner australia
bag: LV
jacket: ashy london

cardigan: michael kors
necklace: american vintage HB
t-shirt: asos white
jeans: new yorker
ballerinas: aldo

t-shirt: h&m
skirt: h&m
belt: h&m
shoes: chloé

tank top: fishbone
skirt: mango
sandals: bagatt

you probably noticed that the first couple of outfits are a bit warmer- yeah well the crazy european weather was rather fresh two weeks ago, then did a complete 180 and temperatures shot up to 36°C, which are still the current temperatures.
what do you like to put on when it’s too hot to wear clothes at all?

work outfits of the days- spring weather

6 Jun

there’s a german saying, that loosely translated goes: april does what it wants. and it sure did! we’ve had some very warm spring weather, but also days where you couldn’t leave your jacket at home. even though we are at the beginning of june, the weather is unseasonably cool- i remember last year around this time, i was non stop in shorts, and had banished all my jackets to the “winter closet”.

here are my favorite outfits of the past weeks:

top and cami: market in italy
jeans: kate moss for topshop
boots: steve madden
leather jacket: bergen

top: mango
skirt: vero moda
ballerinas: zara
necklace: flea market in sydney

leather jacket: mango
blouse: love audrey
jeans: h&m
booties: mango

denim shirt: h&m
tshirt: zara
jeans: h&m
ballerinas: sfb
watch: t.w.steel

having a “meh” day

22 May

today is one of those days where i wish i didn’t have to leave the comfort of my bed. the weather sucks, it’s early, my mood is not awesome, and my cats were being just too snuggly for me to tear away easily.

i can think of at least 10 things off the top of my head that I would rather be doing right at this moment, instead of sitting at my desk having to listen to an annoying colleague blabber on the phone:

  1. sleep.
  2. catch up on the big bang theory.
  3. have an awesome breakfast (I’m thinking of the bird) in bed. While watching the big bang theory.
  4. cuddle with my cats. The whole day. I know they’re up for it.
  5. online shopping (everything is blocked here… thank god wordpress isn’t!).
  6. go for brunch with friends.
  7. go to the movies and watch the avengers, bel ami, the dictator, and a few others that I’ve been meaning to see.
  8. get a massage- one of those two-hour long full body heaven-sent relaxing shiatsu ones.
  9. spring clean my closet, bathroom and makeup.
  10. watch other shows I’ve been neglecting because of work.
  11. blog about my wonderful new, freshly arrived alexander wang bag.
  12. finally get to post another round of outfits of the days.
  13. sleep.

see? 13 things I came up with on the spot, that I would much rather enjoy than boring spreadsheets and the like.

what would you rather be doing than sitting at work?

oh and this is a pic of one of my favorite tshirts, it’s from mango. i’ve worn it with a very unimpressive jeans and sneakers combo, that’s why it’s not with the previous pictures (cardigan is from review):

isn’t it cool?

which are your favorite (or not favorite) outfits i’ve worn? which would you wear to the office?

work outfits of the days – nails and accessories

9 May

from the title you can deduce that i decided to break it up into two posts, so that it doesn’t get too long.

without further ado, i give you the nails:

model’s own polishes

these are the colors that i was telling you about in a previous post – i couldn’t wait to try them one by one,  so i did them all (but the blue, i opted for turquoise because i wanted to see what it looked like). my favorites are the yellow and the pink, they are the two that are pastelliest… the orange is pretty, but normal, like i wouldn’t call it pastel orange, same with the lilac and turquoise- very pretty, but not light enough to be truly pastels.

the rings:

arabic calligraphy ring

got this in egypt at one of the many silver jewellery stores.

cameo brooch ring

what makes this cameo ring special is that even though it has rhinestones, it’s not tacky!

feline face ring

this was an awesome find at american vintage, a thrift store in huntington beach.

thomas sabo butterfly charm

a gift, so pretty and filigrane!

LV belt, Melissa Agnoletti necklace

this belt is actually the belt part of a vintage louis vuitton fanny pack (like the one the employees wear in the store, but vintage). i wear the bag part as a clutch, and the strap as a belt. the necklace is by melissa agnoletti, an italian accessories designer that is all the rage at the moment.that’s it for the accessories part, stay tuned for the outfits!
