A day in the life + OOTD

Wonderful readers,

How is your Sunday? I decided that we all should take a moment to appreciate the beautiful autumn nature, before it changes again. I want to share with you some photos from yesterday.

My mom came for a visit, so we spent an active day together, walking through leaves, between lots of people in the city centre, checking fashion and beauty news in stores. Also we were chilling and dreaming at the cafe.

This is a day in the life! ❤

I wore a pretty much black outfit (except of my brown leather jacket), and I think it was a great choice. It is a wonderful contrast with these bright golden leaves.

I love this fake fur purse, it is very comfy and it is big enough for the things I need the most while being outdoors.

Sunday Exploration

Wonderful readers,

Here we are again, yet another beautiful Sunday. Time does fly! Last Sunday, I wrote a post about my healthy orange smoothie and how I spent a lazy day indoors with tv shows and things like that. This Sunday I decided to do something different.

Today was beautiful weather, with blue sky, sun and 13 plus degrees celsius. Therefore, I decided to take a long walk to the places I have never been before. With other words – explore the city!

Exploration OOTD.

I have to tell you, it was so much fun. I discovered some pretty amazing places, where I could see part of panorama view of the city, also some smaller streets with old houses and really loud and beautiful waterfall. Also instead of smoothie I drank a bit too much delicious latte at my brothers place. No regrets!

I definitely recommend to explore the unknown streets, because it is the best way to find beautiful spots and places that should be visited by You! So let`s go!

Small pleasures + Date night look

Wonderful readers,

How is your Friday so far, perhaps going for a date later on? I want to tell you about three things from yesterday that made me very excited!

First of all, miss wonderful SUN finally arrived! I almost forgot how it felt like to wake up to the blue and bright sky. Also fallen golden leaves on the ground look magnificent in the sun light.  Therefore, the first thing I did was to find my hidden sunglasses and go for a little walk. On the way, I threw some old clothes into special clothes container, that delivers second hand clothes to the countries in need.

Second great thing was that I got invited for a date! It is so important to still do these little things to each other, even if you live together. So I got dressed up and was all excited. Here is my outfit for a date night on a Thursday. I wore a black dress with black tights, bordeaux boots and coat, while outside I wore blue scarf and black little purse with a chain strap.

 

And finally the third thing that happened was that I finally got to taste vegan Matcha Latte while on the date. I have been wanting to taste it for a long time. And I have to be honest that I actually expected a different taste. Matcha basically means powered green tea, that contains a lot of caffeine and some health benefits. I guess this is one of the tastes that you have to get use to. I do not want to be quick to judge, therefore I will make an opinion about it after some more cups. On the other hand, my guy really liked it from the first sip. You really cannot argue about taste!

Falling Leaves + OOTD

Wonderful readers,

How is your Saturday? Yesterday, I was walking a lot in the city, through the stores and little streets. Such a wonderful time it is, when leaves are beautifully coloured, but still mostly on the trees. The weather is still pleasant and you can enjoy the day light until around 7pm.

But there was one street, where the whole pathway was completely covered in leaves. You know the sound leaves make when you walk on them without lifting your feet that much? YES, the sound! That wonderful sound, real comfort for my ears. That moment, I realised how deeply I enjoy looking and walking on autumn leaves.

Today, we celebrated my dads birthday and I decided to wear one of my favourite autumn dresses. It is very loose and girly, super comfortable and playful.

I wore it in two different ways. The first one for the day time, with black belt, black tights, light beige trenchcoat and bordeaux boots. The second one is darker, where the difference is brown leather jacket and black over the knee boots.

Summer Vibes – Blue Dress

Wonderful readers,

Recently, I saw a lot of pictures of people travelling to warm countries, enjoying the sun, warm weather, slow walks, cold drinks, sandy beaches and light clothes. There is quite different view outside of my window I have to say, but still very beautiful. At first, I caught myself being a bit jealous of those pictures, but then I looked through the photos from my summer trip. And I realised, there is nothing to be jealous about. Things happen by their pace, how they suppose to happen. And I feel very content where I am now! Let`s be happy for others and embrace our beautiful moments! 🙂

So while looking through my summer memories, I decided to share with You some photos of my blue dress, that accidentally caught my eyes in one of the stores while on vacation this summer! It became my top summer outfit! What was your top outfit of this summer?

“Life is everything, except of perfection.”

I paired this blue dress with little heart choker necklace, big white watch, black chunky heel sandals and black little purse with chain strap. I also wore beautiful Quay sunglasses.

Hello September + OOTD

Wonderful readers,

Here we are, welcoming September into our homes and hearts. Maybe it doesn’t exactly bring out a smile on your face, since the summer seems always to just fly away in a blink of an eye. However, Autumn has many positive sides.

How nice is it to see trees and leaves in bright and beautiful colours? Walk slowly in those leaves and make comforting sounds… How nice is it to meet friends and family for a cup of coffee and sit warmly inside? How nice is it to experiment with your style, by layering up and playing with colours and accesories? Maybe you have mainly grey sweaters in your closet, but grey is a beautiful colour if you ask me. Only add some brighter accents, or keep it in that ´grey way`. Also by going back to School, University or Work, you learn a lot of new things, you improve yourself and grow as a person which is super important!

So let`s welcome September with still Bright Colours and SMILES! ♡

Outfit Challenge – Long Wide Pants

Hello readers,

So today I decided to do an outfit challenge. This challenge is about putting an outfit together with an item you bought or got, but never/rarely worn.

I picked out high waisted, long wide pants with polka dots from Zara and styled them actually in two different outfits. One outfit with white Adidas sneakers and denim jacket representing street style, and another outfit with high platforms and transparent cover for a night out or an event. Also I noticed white belt that came with the pants, made a difference for the look. I simply couldn’t decide whether second look looked better with the belt on or without. Therefore, both options are included.

I have never worn these pants before, but after doing this challenge, I don`t really know why these great pants were hidden in my closet. I will definitely wear them more often!

Dress to Impress

When you are in search of that perfect summer dress…

 

As our beautiful summer slowly fades away, let`s embrace bright colours for a little while. It is such a great feeling to wear beautiful dresses on a warm summer day. The wind kindly touches your skin and moves the soft fabric of your dress. The colour brightens up your day and brings out smiles in others. Get in touch with your soft and feminine side and embrace it by wearing a dress you like. There are so many choices you can choose from.  You can combine your dress with heels, flats, sandals or even sneakers if the dress has a more casual look. However, no matter what kind of dress you choose, the most important is to remember this:

“What is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.”Yves Saint Laurent

Here are 4 summer dresses I chose. Which one do you like the most? Let me know in the comment section. 🙂 Enjoy!

Confidence check + OOTD

” Be proud of who you are, and not ashamed of how someone else sees you.”

IMG_7823

Do you recognise yourself walking down the street,

All alone, with bright new set of heels.

People start to look at you, up and down, their eyes roll through,

And suddenly all you can think is,

What the hell is wrong with you?

“Don`t they like my hair, or my shoes are too high?

Do my pants look dirty or my shirt is too bright?”

All these questions run through your head, you almost brake a sweat.

And you swear to yourself, to never wear this set again.

You have to wear simple t-shirt and jeans, because it is better to disappear in the crowd,

Than feel so green.

But Honey, let me tell you. This is quite wrong.

They look at you because you are fabulous

And would like to remember that look you own.

 

Others opinion is really not in your interest,

So we shouldn’t be afraid whether is bad or good.

Everyone has the right to have their opinion about things,

As well as you do, as he, she or I do.

The streets are your stage, embrace your uniqueness today!

You know, when I first saw this two-set in the store a few years ago, I liked it immediately, since I assumed it looked cute, different, with a hint of vintage feel. But when I got it, one random thought hit me – it looked so similar to old kind table cloth. I simply couldn’t get that thought out of my head and I literally convinced myself that everyone would laugh and point at me if I wore this piece of clothing. Such a silly thought when I think about it now. I was imprisoned into my own made beliefs and I couldn’t wear this item, even though I really liked it.

It took me more than two years to change my mind set completely. Accidentally, I found this two-set in my closet this summer, all wrapped in the back. I put it in the front of my closet and proudly wore it with a big smile. This proves that even our own thoughts and opinions change! Make sure to wear clothes you like and be confident about it! 🙂

White ZARA Jacket + OOTD`s

Can you imagine when a clothing item is meant to be yours?

You discover it for the first time when the store launches their new collection. It catches your eyes immediately and you think it looks amazing. However, at the time, the price seems a bit too high, so you simply walk away and forget about it.

Only to discover the sales after some months. And then you meet again, after a while, but still the same attraction… Completely random if you think about it, but at the same time perfect timing, as you will realise later.

You walk closer, there is only one jacket left. Your palms start to sweat slightly and slowly while you carefully lift the price tag, to look for which size is left alone. And then, you imagine sparkles in your eyes and feel the joy drifting through your body. All this because this is your size! You feel a desire to shout in excitement so the whole store could hear you. Obviously, you keep it inside of you and instead try the jacket on, there and then. Don’t bother going into the changing room only for a jacket, when there are mirrors everywhere. You put it on and it fits perfectly and looks really great on you! Why wait anymore, you go and buy it!

This is the story about my Zara jacket which I bought on sale before my trip and wore it almost everyday in Lithuania. I guess it is not that bad that it was chilly there. As my friend said to me – in spite of the weather conditions, at least you got a chance to wear this beautiful jacket. 😀

Here are some OOTD`s with this jacket from my vacation in Lithuania!
