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.”

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 of 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 of 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!

When It Rains + OOTD

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. 😀

Even if it rains, have a lovely weekend guys!

We Love Colourful Weekends + OOTD

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.
