Show me a nice pair of shoes and I will most likely buy it but when it comes to accessories (especially sunglasses) I get so picky I even surprise myself. It takes me months to choose something I like and more months to actually buy it but once I do I will wear it for years. Those are all my beloved pieces that I carefully chose, bought for special occasions and wear with pride and joy. They are very dear to me not only for style but also for good memories. You can also look at it as part of a core wardrobe. Once you have those four pairs you can add to your collection and you will know what to wear it with because they simply fall to this four categories.
The weather has been absolutely gorgeous last week so I spent as much time outside as full-time blogging permits – taking pictures for blog posts, checking new spots for future photoshoots and just hanging out. This outfits yet simple but super comfortable (thanks to this wedges) is ideal for running all my errands. If you’ve been following me for awhile you probably know that I don’t like a lot of details in my outfits. It has to be simple but to the point. Another thing is that it has to be comfortable. I can tolerate some degree of “uncomfortable” if shoes/dress/etc. is too beautiful not to wear and the event is worth it but if I have a busy day ahead of me those wedges and wrinkle free pants with a simple t-shirt is going to be the win.
The second biggest fear is public speaking apparently. I cannot tell you where I’ve heard it from exactly but must’ve been one of the TED talks. I would also add that we spend half of our time (if not more) thinking what others think of us and it is a huge obstacle to overcome when coming out of your comfort zone. Being afraid of someone’s disapproval can prevent you from achieving a lot of things. Even when people say they don’t care about what others might think about them they more or less do anyways. That’s why I love blogging so much. It definitely makes me get out of MY comfort zone a lot. I’ve just started as a fashion blogger but it didn’t take long to realize that most of the work (if not all) I would have to do by myself and it is all good fun but the hardest part is the work on myself.
With the weather getting warmer and nicer it is time to get spring clothes form the back of your closet. I cannot tell you how happy I am do to so! Finally after long winter “style slumber” and boring cold weather clothes I can be fashionable again! Not that I am not fashionable during winter of course but warm spring weather definitely gives more options for a stylish gal.
Although the key piece in this post is the trench coat this outfit came together for the sake of new heels. To be honest I love beige shoes but the reason I haven’t bought any before was simple – I didn’t know how to style it. I don’t really lack creativity when it comes to putting an outfit together but for some reason this was difficult for me. Call it a stylist’s block. The first thing that pops into my mind when I think about beige shoes is light blue jeans, white shirt, red lipstick and big wavy hair and after that… Blank. Nude shoes are not made to stand out but rather to complement the outfit due to it’s color and I wanted the opposite so when it all finally came together I was rather pleased with the result.
I love wearing sneaker. I mean who doesn’t? It’s super comfortable and for the last couple of years very stylish. I hope this trend is here to stay. I basically lived in heels in my college years. Even using public transportation (where you had to stand most of the times) and knowing that I had 8 hours day ahead of me didn’t stop me from putting on favorite pumps in the morning. My feet definitely didn’t thank me for it and I remember coming home swearing I wouldn’t wear it again but morning would come and I would change my mind yet again. Honestly, thinking about it now I have no idea how I didn’t end up with a bad back or something. So for a person who only wore high heels most of her adult life accepting that sneakers can be sexy as well wasn’t easy but I’m glad I finally did so are my feet.
