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.

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! 🙂

Lithuanian Sea Coast: KLAIPEDA video

Screen Shot 2017-07-15 at 20.26.49.png

How are you guys doing?

I have been in my home country Lithuania for the last couple of weeks. The most of my time was spent by the Lithuanian sea coast, which is on the eastern shore of the Baltic Sea. The weather wasn’t that pleasant at times, as August tends to be a warmer month there. However, we had such an amazing time doing different activities.

I decided to do a Lithuanian Sea Coast series, consisting of 3 short Travel with Ruta videos from the cities Klaipeda, Nida and Palanga. I will tell you more closely about some special and exciting things I have done while abroad in other blog post. For example meeting some super cute baby tigers in Klaipeda Zoo and I will share some outfits of the day.

Let`s start our journey together by watching my travel video from Klaipeda, the third largest city in Lithuania, situated by the Baltic Sea. This video consists of sightseeing, beautiful beaches and of course some funny dance moves, just the way I like it. While I am in progress with different exciting activities, I usually forget to film. Not only forget, but there is simply no time for filming when excitement hits your head. Therefore, my travel videos usually don’t include activities, but rather sightseeing and nature.

I hope you will enjoy it and catch that good and happy vibe, which you can use as inspiration for positive travels in style! Follow me and we will be in touch. (Don’t forget to watch the video in HD.) 🙂

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.

One Day It is Reality, Another Day Beautiful Memory

FullSizeRender-30

It is easy to get excited,

About something you are waiting for patiently,

About something you have missed or dreamed for a long time.

 

Firstly, the time seems to stand still,

It seems so far away it gets hard to keep you chill.

Then you try to not think of it,

Keep your mind occupied with other things that keep you real.

Here the time takes a serious step forward,

And the day you have waited for

Arrives with a blink.

 

Lastly the joy, takes over it all.

You laugh excitedly through the whole

Experience you have waited for

Hours, days, weeks, months, years…

With second blink you take,

Here it goes,

 

One day it is reality, 

Another day beautiful memory.

Two Choker Tops that I Love

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.

Also amazing makeup by Indre Antana. ❤

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?

Summertime Colours and Smiles

FullSizeRender-23

 

Can you think of a day

You would be content with it all…

Does it include love?

Your passion, peace, activities or a hug?

 

Summertime colours and smiles,

Bring some joy and healthy shine,

To your face and your mind,

To your soul as well, how nice…

Sunshine helps to keep it alive,

Spread the love around,

Because there is no time to hide,

The stage is yours,

Your life is your show.

Live it to the fullest!

Cat Café in Vilnius, Lithuania

IMG_0349
Ladies by the Cathedral of Vilnius.

When I was visiting my home country Lithuania last year, my brothers wife gave me the best suggestion – to visit the one and only Cat Café situated in the capital Vilnius. My nephew was dreaming about this cafe for a long time and I also didn’t hesitate to give a positive answer. I also invited my amazing friend and we headed off to the train station for our short and fun adventure.

The day started in a very unusual way. It was the end of July and the weather was typically really good. We took on our summer clothes and headed for a mini bus which was suppose to drive us to the train station. While sitting on that bus, we saw the sky slowly getting darker and darker. And suddenly, it started to pour! It was not only some summer rain. It was literally pouring with lighting getting the sky brighter, thunder making remarkable sounds and small ice cubes hitting the bus windows. Well, you can imagine our reactions. First, we laughed and then it got a bit scary to leave that bus. However, nothing would ruin our great trip mood! We ran from the bus to the train station, got really wet and laughed so hard it was hard to breath. The day got really interesting!

When we finally arrived in Vilnius (a one hour trip from a city called Kaunas), before we went to our goal place of the day, we decided to visit a beautiful public park called Bernardinai Garden (Bernardinu Sodas). There are botanic exhibitions, fountains, flowers and green areas with benches and small stream of water.

The peak of this trip could be our running in the rain, but the Cat Café (Kačių kavinė) was originally our goal and took over the attention. And you are probably wondering what this café is all about? Do they serve cats there? Well, I want to calm you down. This café has many beautiful cats that walk around and you can look at them, pet them, buy them some treats, take pictures, go and play with them while you are waiting for your food, after you are finished eating or in between if you like. Therefore, the Cat Café is all about smiles and good vibes!

It is a very exciting and unusual concept that will definitely give you something to talk about. I have to say, that the cats are not that enthusiastic, probably very used to all of the people, attention and therefore not so excited to play or do something other than laying around or sleeping. However, if you decide to buy them a treat, which you can do right there, as my nephew did, then you will get surrounded by the cats and feel the real attention. Would you like to visit the Cat Café?

Last but not least, how could we not go to one of the little cafes situated in the beautiful and lively Old Town of Vilnius? Delicious cakes, coffees, lovely live music delivered just next to you by talented street musicians. Perfect ending on this little and exciting trip!
