Don’t let the rain ruin your mood. Don’t let the rain ruin your day plans.
And definitely don’t let the rain ruin your outfit for the day! Grab your rain jacket, and let yourself shine through it! Your smile and inner energy will give brightness to those around.
Rainy and quite cold summer days can really affect your mood. Everything you wish for in summer time is warmth, sunshine, happiness, light clothes, ability to sunbath at the beach and swim in the sea. There are probably many more things you wish, but these are essential things that hits me firstly when I think about this season. Summer is so short already in the western Europe. However, it is how it is, and we can only make the best out of it. In this case, if nature gives you lemons, make some lemonade! You can still dress nicely for those cold, rainy summer days!
The rain definitely cannot stop my friend and I to enjoy our day. We took on some nice coats and headed for a city exploration. My friend went for a light, creamy raincoat and I chose a simple beige Mango coat. Also light scarfs are essential when there is chilly rain, even on those summer days and we chose cropped, blue skinny jeans. And always have an umbrella in your purse or backpack. I am so bad at this myself, as I constantly forget my umbrella and end up coming home all wet. Hopefully this post will help me to remember bringing an umbrella at any occasion. 😀
Recently, my amazing friend Valda visited me in Oslo for a couple of days and we were lucky enough to experience some sunny days, considering the unexpected weather conditions. And what can be better than spending the day walking slowly around the city centre, talking, laughing, taking pictures, grabbing some ice coffee and in general just enjoying your time? But in order to really feel good about yourself, put a bit of effort to combine an outfit you will feel confident and beautiful in. And here it is, you are ready to take over the streets!
Pastel and bright colours are wonderful choice on sunny days, as they appear fresh, playful and clean. Don’t let the sun over shine you, be someones sunshine and make them smile! 🙂 We chose to make outfits with my two pastel jackets. As my love for ripped jeans is still here, I could not resist to mix those with my jacket. Red purse was my biggest accent and accessory along with my pastel yellow jacket. My friend chose light blue cropped jeans that matched her beautiful light blue blouse and shiny leather shoes was her outfit accent along with the pastel pink jacket.
If you have asked me half a year ago, what I think about a fabric choker, I would answer you that I don’t quite get this trend. Why would anyone make a hole in a top, instead of leaving it be as a turtleneck? But then I tried one on, and it grew on me. I absolutely fell in love with it and how it looks on me. I really like the fact that it looks different and the part on your neck has a unique accessory look. The scarfs are one of my favourite accessories, that means I am very used of keeping some fabric on my neck. Therefore a choker top fabric gives me that comfy feeling that I like.
How did this choker trend from the 90s became so popular nowadays? For the past year, a lot of trends from the 90s came back, such as overalls, high waisted jeans and jumpers. Trends go around and come around only with new fabrics and details. The choker trend started on the runways in 2016 and then celebrities took it over and this highly influenced people to try it on themselves. This accessory is an easy way to adapt 90s trend to any outfit and that is probably why this trend grew on people so quickly. Nowadays, it is no longer considered as a 90s “cool girl” look. It became a key item and a distinct accessory.
I haven’t tried any choker necklaces just yet, guess I am a bit slow on things. I like to try and “taste” things in my own pace, without rushing or going with the flow. Chokers seem to slowly fade away, since the long necklaces take over their place. However, lately I have been thinking about of getting one shiny choker for summer, to make an outfit more interesting. What do you think about chokers?
You joyfully buy the most trendy jacket and a pair of ripped jeans. Next week you check out the same store to see that your trendy jacket has been replaced by another jacket and those ripped jeans you bought, well, now you should rather wear black leather pants instead… You are confused, a bit upset and get a huge desire to buy new clothes. Does this sound familiar to you?
Fashion industry is a business that has to constantly change and make you buy new clothes in order to survive.
You should also be unpredictable with your style in order to be unforgettable. However, it doesn’t mean you have to buy new trendy outfits every week. You can still wear the same jacket with another pair of pants and blouse that fits perfectly and make you feel beautiful. And you know what? Your confidence and attitude is already irresistible!
You should choose a couple of season trends you really like and add that to your wardrobe. The rest should be your personal style and preference. It is also completely fine if you only like everything that is considered trendy for the moment.
So are you considered stylish by boldly following the trends? Partly yes and no. One thing is for sure, that you will definitely see someone dressed exactly like you on the streets and it shouldn’t be surprising because it is completely normal. And secondly, be prepared to spend quite some amount of money in order to follow all the trends that are being put out for us every week.
My personal consideration scale whether I should buy an item or not usually looks like this:
Whether I really like the item or not.
Whether it looks good on me and fits me well.
Can I afford it right now?
If previous three questions get a positive answer, I will definitely buy it!
(Wow, this item is actually trendy right now.)
From this scale I see that trendiness is not something I look at first and it actually comes in the last place. More important is the personal preference, fitting and tidiness of the clothes. What are your thoughts on this topic? I would love to read it!
We are getting closer and closer to the summer time, it is only 6 days left! How time is flying so fast, you blink and – here we are! Many of us wait for the summer with excitement – vacation, travel, sunshine, ice cream, nature, smiles and joy. But while everyone is still in town, and weather is blinking at you with a smile, use this time to sponteneously spend some evenings outside!
Spontaneous meets are so exciting. When you simply grab some coffee and walk slowly, while enjoying the weather and being among the people mass. That is exactly what we did yesterday! So enjoy it simply and casually!
When it comes to clothes, spring is quite unpredictable. Especially in a city which is situated by the sea. It can be windy and cloudy in the morning, so hot in the daytime, and much colder in the evening. Therefore, a jacket is actually a must. Then you feel secure at any time that you will not get cold. There are so many beautiful jackets out there for you to choose, so it should not be a problem. Remember to grab a jacket before you go out, and you will be ready for a spontaneous evening by the sea!
A name You may not remember, but a smile You will never forget!
Fashion Friday of this week is being converted into Fashion Saturday! But no worries, I have a beautiful subject for you guys, which is called Smiling!

Therefore, I want to talk about the main aspects that come from our insides, before we go and dig into outfit ideas and trends later on. You are never fully dressed without a smile on your face!
Have you ever heard that Smile is the best accessory anyone can wear? Have you thought about it, whether you agree?
Well, I agree with that 100%! A real and genuine smile does wonderful things to yourself as well as to other people. It brings out simple happiness and joy!
Beautiful Smiles of my wonderful people!

What would a big statement necklace look like with an angry or sad face? Of course, the necklace would distract peoples eyes for a while, but ultimately they will notice your well being. At the same time it is very difficult to frown when looking at someone who smiles. Therefore, by wearing your best accessory, you make others to wear their best accessories as well! Smiling can also make you healthier. It can reduce the level of stress and overall blood pressure, it boosts your immune system and increases the level of mood enhancing hormones like endorphins. So are You smiling already?
Therefore, the goal is to treat yourself well, treat your inner beauty by smiling. When your inner beauty is in place, it will shine through to your outer beauty. You can wear a genuine smile – the best accessory in the world, day after day and everyday.
It is very important to not be ashamed of your smile, since every smile is different, unique and beautiful in its own way. A happy, smiling person looks always more content and attractive. Smile to yourself every morning, smile to the other people everyday and you will hopefully notice a difference for your inner happiness, health and outer beauty! Never underestimate the power of a sincere smile. ❤
You probably recognise yourself trying on new trends, outfits, hairstyles or makeup you have seen on other people that looked amazing, only to feel the urge to change to something else and cover yourself with a blanket. You walk on the streets and constantly touch your skirt, or fix the scarf and you definitely don’t feel like dancing. When people take a look at you, you immediately think there is something wrong and you nervously look down. What is missing here? Why do other people look so much better in your eyes?
The answer is CONFIDENCE.
No matter what you wear, confidence is the key and how you feel inside. Since the taste is very personal, confidence is universal – it is beautiful and we recognise it regardless of what type of style you like and preference you have. Feel the most beautiful in the room and shine bright from inside and out. Beauty is what you feel about yourself. So choose to wear confidence today and everyday!
