Autumn weather, autumn mood

Autumn – this feeling when the sun took a step back, the leaves covered the ground and the trees show us how lovely it can be to let things go.

For me personally autumn is a little bit of a sad season, moreover now that we are at home in a lockdown (again). But I see it as a necessary transition period leading to the festive December.

But no matter how sad and cold the weather outside is, the nature colors revive – yellow, orange, saturated green, dark violet and red, brown, etc. And the autumn trends always follow those colors and so do I. I like violet, burgundy and all combinations in this palette. 

My outfit today is a cosy, casual one – a „fashion“ shirt with jeans, a sleeveless red jacket and matching sneakers.

Dressing room in a fashionway

I have always dreamed of a dedicated dressing room space and now, in our new house, it is slowly becoming a reality. I decided to have the furniture in a modern white finish, which I find perfect for storing clothes and accessories – towers with shelves, hang areas, drawers, open shelving as well as shoe and bag shelving. It is still a work in progress, so follow my posts for updates…

Once everything is installed, I am going to work on filling my room – shoes and folded items, like sweaters and jeans stored in the open shelving, long dresses and pants I will 
place on the hanging rod; and my most frequently used fall-winter outwear I will move to the center of my closet for quick and easy access.

The all-so-needed black-and-white dog-tooth armchair is already in place. At the end I’ll put the finishing touches on my new space by adding a nice white bench, a rug, and some cute decorations amidst my accessories, in a fashionway.

A simple summer outfit: denim skirt-shorts and a palm printed shirt

It is time to share the next outfit from my holiday in St. Vlas with you. It is the kind of outfit I was wearing almost every day, and I will probably be wearing it again once next summer.

Denim shorts or skirts in blue, black and white are summer essentials and I do have a few options in my wardrobe. I would always suggest having at least one pair in each of these three colours as they are the perfect base for every summer outfit. They are quite simple, but that also makes them easy to combine. You actually can match denim shorts with everything. The simplest combination is the one with a simple t-shirt or top.

To make an outfit with a pair of denim shorts more interesting, add details – accessories such as a belt, a hat, jewellery or a beach bag. Or wear a white shirt with an interesting cut or details such as ruffles, cut-outs or a print.

In this outfit I added to my skirt-shorts a printed shirt – it by itself is already an eye-catcher thanks to the palm tree print, the cut-off sleeves, as well as the wrapped front and the knotted edges. There’s no need to add many more accessories to make this outfit appear more interesting, but I wanted to go all-in that day – hence I put on my comfortable flip-flops, favourite sunglasses and finished with a cactus 🌵necklace, all in a fashion way.
