Everybody noticed that gingham trend has been on top this spring and summer, and it seems like it is not ready to leave us yet. I love this kind of print because it is super easy to style. However, there are many women out there who would not dare to mix this pattern into their wardrobe. And I know why, because for many it associates with classic picnic blanket. Well, that is why I love it so much, cause it brings good emotions, and can make you look refreshingly chic. Go for black and white gingham instead of traditional red, blue or green. It will give a more neutral but still playful look. You can find so many different styles in the fashion stores, from classy masculine, to very feminine pieces at the moment. Gingham items don’t have to feel rustic and old fashion, since it got some trendy touches of ruffles or appliqués. For a feminine and modern look, team your gingham look with white sneakers.
The summer is still here and the whole August is ahead. However going back into office mood might be hard for most of us, while beach, sand and summer sunsets are still dancing in our heads. Yes, post vacation situation can be hard sometimes. So, how to jump into work outfit, after few weeks in relaxed atmosphere, where the only things you needed was a bikini and a small evening dress? You might want to wear something relaxed and sporty but without overdoing it. We all know that high heels is a way to express our feminine spirit and at the same time a statement piece for an elegant and sophisticated look. If you are afraid of wearing too sporty clothes, neutralise it with your elegant pair of high heels. It is all about balance, and what I mean is that you simply mix elegant with sporty, feminine with masculine or classy with extravagant. Office wear should not be put into frames (well it used to be), and we should still be able express ourselves in a way of who we are..
We got the most crazy weather here in Copenhagen. It’s not very cozy when you are freezing all the time. It is suppose to be summer! So, I wear a lot of layers recently. Of course I want to avoid winter pieces, cause that is not how it suppose to be in July month. So, if you are facing the same issue, let me give you a smart advice. Do not jump into chunky winter sweaters and jackets! By layering your outfit with fresh summer items, you will come up with some nice combinations, keeping you warm and stylish at the same time. Well, and if the temperature suddenly goes up, you can always remove some pieces. Actually if you have an oversize shirt or two, you can always wear it open instead of a blazer, and it will give a nice and cool look without feeling too hot.

I always had a passion for vintage pieces, and there is something special about it. When I was a teenager, I never had a huge wardrobe since my parents could not afford it. So, I remember I used to search for some cool stuff in my moms or grandmothers basement all the time. I love old clothes, no matter where it comes from. However, things that I got from my family, I call a real treasure! The dress I am wearing, used to be my mothers which she crocheted herself when she was a teenager. I even got a picture of her making this beautiful piece, which I thing is amazing. That is the most expensive dress I have ever had, not only because it is vintage, but because there’s so much hand craft and love in it!
One of the best things about summer start, is all these beautiful blooms and flowering trees. It boosts my mood every morning I get out, and really makes me happy. Well, I guess my outfit today fits perfectly with this beautiful surrounding… I am wearing a very delicate vintage blouse, which I always though is very romantic and elegant. Actually, I have quite many this kind of beautiful vintage blouses, that recently are hidden in my closet, due to the fact that my style more often is very casual. I don’t want to get rid of it since I have respect for vintage pieces, but at the same time I don’t want to fill my closet with items that I am not wearing. So, I decided that maybe it is time to style it into more casual look. The best way to make a delicate blouse look more sporty, is to roll up the sleeves and unbutton it as much as you can. I think this trend can make any shirt look very cool. Combining it with jeans, helps to neutralise the romantic look of it. And of course white sneakers are always the best and easy way to make any outfit look relaxed.

There is something special about beach bags. It is definitely a statement piece, and I cannot describe why it is so eye catching…Well, most likely because of the size or colors? If you are hiding yours somewhere deep in your closet, you should definitely take it out, and don’t wait for sunny days or your dream holidays. I am that kind of person who really hates to save pieces for special occasions. My wardrobe is not a storage, and it is too small for things that I am using once in a year.
You know, who said that beach bags are only meant to keep you a company only on the way to the beach?.. There are no rules in these days on how you should style your outfit, and you are allowed to go crazy, and do what ever you want. I had my bag for couple of years now and could never find the right pieces to match the colors, so I thought I will get rid of it. Well, thanks god I did not do that, cause this summer it is my favorite statement piece, and it goes super nice with everything. Don’t ask me why, because I don’t know… Maybe my style has changed, or maybe I had this weird perception that beach bags are only for the BEACH…

Sometimes adding some simple details to your outfit can really make a statement. So let’s talk about that… I guess you all noticed the biggest denim trend at the moment. It seems like embroidered jeans came back from the 90s and is gonna stay for a while. You can find many pieces in the shops with cool embroidery at the moment,and if you are feeling creative and have time you might want to DIY this trend, to make your old jeans come back to life. I am more into geometric shapes at the moment, but floral embroidery denim looks very good too, so just check Pinterest for some inspiration if you feel like. I love this trend a lot, and I think embroidery gives a little extra to the denim, so go for some bright colors if you want a new summer look.
There is another simple way to add some new details to your overall look. You might consider playing with your shoes as well, and the most simple and cheep way is to change a boring ribbon into something more eye catching. I went for this pretty lace ribbon, but you can pick any, depending on the shoe type, and I guess for example sneakers would be very easy to style. I have some more DIY projects coming, but I guess I will keep it for later posts. Have a great and creative day my dear readers!
The fashion world is influenced by society and society is influenced by fashion. Few centuries ago we would never imagine women going into menswear closet, wearing pants or pantsuits. Today, trends are changing so fast, that we almost do not have time to judge or dislike new movements. Few years ago many of us would say that pantsuit is a perfect classic for office work, business or professional meetings. I guess most of us stopped taking fashion too seriously and dress according to the ‘rules’. Today this classic piece became less serious, and we are kind of allowed to play with it as we wanted to and brake all the rules. I think it makes our lives so much easier, and you don’t need to invest in a huge wardrobe worrying about each occasion. Meaning, you can put your elegant high heels on and you are ready for a busy day in the office or meeting, where maybe next day you can have your sneakers on and you have a completely different casual ‘boys look’, which in my opinion is very cool. In fact pantsuits are perfect both for day and night occasions, and what I have learned so far is that, to look sharp and clean you need to keep your accessories to a minimum. So, I guess a white t-shirt under and the right shoes is more then enough. Enjoy your day dear ladies !
There is something about a white t-shirt when the summer comes. Well, it is still on its way, but as soon the sun comes out, white t-shirt occupies my wardrobe. That is the most easy, classic piece for the summer to have in your closet, as it goes nice with jeans, skirt, blazer or office suit. And of course most important, it is super comfy and practical. The one I have on, got some pretty and summery detail on it, but most of the time I choose a plain white. To celebrate the upcoming summer days, let’s add some colorful details to our outfits. Seems like yellow is quite trendy this season, so why not to play with this pretty color. You can also go for anything you like… Green, blue, red, pink or orange are good this spring as well. Statement earring are back on the trend and if you used to be a big fan of it, I guess you already noticed most of the fashionistas going around on the streets with some cool pieces. Please don’t run into the stores to spend a bunch of money, good styling is not about that. Check what you have in your accessories collection. Try it, play with it, go with it…
