What makes me different makes me beautiful

I have many favourite quotes, but this one from Coco Chanel is in my top ten: „Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself“. That said, I have always believed that being yourself is priceless and it’s what makes you beautiful.

Of course we still have to follow all trends, news and the fashion in general in order to be up to date. But the fashion world is like an endless ocean we must learn to swim in, every season, year, month, week and day.

And what best to fit the winter season than the white, even when it blends into the snow around us. It goes even better with a pair of black boots and fluffy coat, to achieve the always trendy black and white combination. Though high heel boots are not typical for the real snowy winter I like them very much and they make me feel elegant in this outfit, because elegance is not only standing out, but being remembered.

So be you, be different, be yourself!

Happy and pretty

There are so many estimations about how many hours women spend for shopping and clothing, but honestly I find this to be one of the activities I tend to enjoy too :). I think so, because a real woman or a pretty girl should stick to what makes her happy – be it shopping, clothing or just walking on the street while making heads turn, as things in life are easier and enjoyable only when you yourself are satisfied with your day.

I have always tried to be a „pretty woman“, but never following all the requirements and standards of „being pretty“. The „frames“ make me uncomfortable and standards alone are not enough to make you outstanding. To look nice for me does not only mean that you choose the nicest clothes you have, but also finding what your soul desires to feel beautiful and attractive. So, my mood today was a shopping one – going and searching what the latest designer labels are offering.

By the way I have never been too fond of snake prints – it’s not my favourite, but it does have a great sense of style and brings one more level of variety in my closet, reclaiming its territory in 2018, and still being up to date in 2019. Pairing snake accessories is always tricky, but black always matches very well. Both the outfit and the shopping itself made my day.

So what makes YOU feel happy and pretty?

White boots inspiration

From summer to winter, white continues to be the ultimate fashion color for shoes and there is no sign of slowing down.

Before getting into the details of this outfit, I’m going to be completely honest and tell you that I hated to wear white boots, so when I first saw those I thought they are too chic and not my style. Just as it happens with other styles that look strange at first, but later catch up to be trendy, so it happened to me with this one – the white boots are different and strange, but I liked them so much that I wanted to have them on my legs as soon as possible. And although I do like real leather shoes, thees were the best less-expensive non-leather alternative I could find and I was not about to invest in something super expensive just like that.

Of course afterwards came the question what to combine them with in an outfit – especially considering I was still a bit unsure how I felt about it. The outfit you see here is probably the 5th attempt at styling it, but it’s the one I liked the most when pieced together. The idea was to stay pretty simple with the rest of the outfit and let the boots do the talking, but of course without trying too hard. And I think the white poncho and boots combination looks really cool – by the way I like the black leggings a lot better than a pair of denim jeans.

So, I know this style is maybe not be a typical casual, streetstyle outfit, but I’m sure some of you might also like it as a white solution for the white winter. And if you’ve also been trying to style white boots as well, then take the challenge and try something similar on and see what you think! Let me know!
