Shades of grey

Although it’s already May, the weather shows its grey side. That’s why my outfit today is based on the shades of grey – grey socks, grey jacket , grey ⭐ star . But my mood still has colour, because despite of the bad weather that comes and goes so easily, the summer is just around the corner. And – days like these make me work hard – write, read and plan, of course with the focus always on fashion.

So, if you look at the grey shades from their good side, like every dark cloud they could have a silver lining and work out. That’s why – think positive, find something good in every day and don’t forget your own fashion way!

Adding some winter white

It is still winter but I’m looking so much forward to spring that when adding some winter white to my wardrobe I choose not only winter clothes (like a thick sweater and a cap), but also a short skirt and over-knee socks which would be more suited for a warmer season.

But before taking the challenge of wearing white, you should know that winter white is rarely pure white because of the wool material. It’s often closer to ivory or even slightly grayed out white, like ecru. But do you know – it’s worth it – take the challenge to wear white in your winter outfits, that way you will brighten up the gray cold days.

The side-stripe trend

A trend, that has been circling the fashion-sphere for a long time and continues to do so in this fall-winter season is the side-stripe clothes. I can happily say I‘m obsessed with it – I like those stripes, because they sharpen the figure, especially when they are on the side of trousers and make the legs appear longer.

White-black striped dress, black shoes and over-knee socks is one of my favorite outfits I like to wear, as I did when I met some friends in Milan. So I just had to share it with you in this post.

In addition, all these belts and straps with words and phrases written on them (in this case on my shoulder straps) are so cool and just fit perfectly this style, in a fashionway.
