Look of the Day: Oxford Shoes

Even though I'm not myself without heels, flat shoes are a necessity for me and I wear them quite often in every day life, though rarely photograph them. I got these cut out oxfords last week and had to show them to you, they're just too cute.

On another note, my plane to Bulgaria is in the afternoon, so I better hurry up packing (especially given the 5 hour ride to the airport). Finally a vacation I needed for so long! Stay tuned for beach photos!

Have a great weekend!

I'm wearing:

Jumper - Asos (on a huge sale!)
Jeans - Romwe
Shoes - Oasap
Bag - VJstyle
Necklace - Topshop

Strawberry pants








 This morning I strongly sensed the smell of mellow grapes from my window and the fresh Autumnal air and I thought: "Finally!" It's sunny, warm, just perfect, my melancholy is coming back to me and I can't wait to b rapped up in nostalgic feelings which I can't or don't want to control. 
Okay, enough about my romance with a cold season that most of people hate; about the outfit: I am wearing here a pair of thrifted pants, which my boyfriend called "pajama pants", but I find them to be very cute, like strawberries! And my mother's old top I snatched from the bottom of her closet paired with my necklace I used to wore two thousand years ago at my 8th grade prom. I adore the glitter! Soon, I will be on my way to resolve some University stuff and I will be riding long-hour trains, so excuse me if I will be absenting too much.. 

Wearing: thrifted pants, no name top, Agatha sparkly necklace and vintage beaded necklace, self-made bow bracelet and H&M bracelet, random brand shoes, vintage bag

Look of the Day: White Knit

Hi everyone! Hope you're having a great day! My day is all about deadlines and sneezing :) I'm leaving for Bulgaria on Saturday and it looks like I'm gonna be taking a lot of nose drops with me cause the cold I caught like two weeks ago still doesn't go away.

Anyways, here's my outfit from a couple days ago. I was wearing a Zara knit I bought back in spring and never had the chance to wear up until now. Hope you like it!

P.S. Sorry for not posting more pics, I was really in a rush that day so that's all I got.

I'm wearing:

Sweater - Zara (similar ones here, here and here)
Skirt - Pull&Bear
Shoes - Stradivarius
Clutch - H&M

Fall Color in Summer

Tank: F21
Denim: Madewell (old)
Scarf: Target
Flats: c/o MIA
Bag: ALDO (old)
Hat: Target 

I have mentioned it before, but I am dying to wear Fall clothes. Sometimes I just cave in and wear pants and sweaters in the middle of summer, but when it's a 100 degrees out it can be a little rough.

Color is a great way to incorporate fall into your summer wardrobe. This season's big colors: Emerald, Orange, and Burgundy.  Get staple pieces that you can transition into both seasons, shoes, scarfs, accessories all work great. You won't be hot wearing burgundy shoes, like you would sporting a chunky sweater. These soft suede flats come in all fall's hot colors.

I have been on the hunt for a panama hat for some time. The one's at J. Crew are so cute but fit my head weird. I stumbled across these ones at Target last week. Love. Love. Great price too. They have them in white (one I'm wearing) and tan.

What's your favorite colors for fall?

Fall 2012 Wishlist

 While browsing around Net-a-porter and Luisaviaroma, I found some awesome pieces for this upcoming season and even though I can't afford these items, not even if I sale my kidneys, I hope I will find something similar at some decent prices. Or maybe..custom made?
 Anyway, onto this set..I know that skirt doesn't fit the collage, but just look at that incredible print and it has peplum! I could wear that even in winter with a faux fur coat.

  1.Kenzo coat 
2.Thomas Maier dress 
3.Gareth Pugh coat 
4.Dolce&Gabbana brocade pants 
5.Stella McCartney peplum skirt 
6.Burberry Prorsum boots 
7.Dolce&Gabbana bag - perfection!

 Now, the next set is dedicated to burgundy color. I fell in love with this shade since last Fall and now I am considering adding more items to my wardrobe in this color. 

1. Miu Miu heels 
2.Alexander McQueen dress
 3.Haider Ackermann coat 
4.Sonia by Sonia Ryckiel shirt
 5. Ballin ankle boots 
6. 3.1 Phillip Lim top
 7.Proenza Schouler bag - representing all of Autumn's colors in my opinion 
8. Dolce&Gabbana earrings 

And here are some statement jewelery for you to drool upon, if you are a fan of these, like I am. I have been obsessing over such pieces since last Spring and I need more more more! 

 1. Valentino 
2. Aurelie Bidermann earrings
 3. Tom Binns necklace
 4. Oscar de la Renta
 5. J. Crew 
6. Oscar de la Renta earrings 
7. Bottega Venetta
 8. Oscar de la Renta
 9. Kenneth Jay Lane earrings 
10. Frey Wille bracelet - I am crazy about these, in every color and size! 

So, peplum, leather, velvet, burgundy, brocade, basic black boots (they could be in brown, I don't mind) cloche coat, statement necklaces, and to be honest there are other stuff that are coming through my mind but I better cool down.. I could get sick of so many beautiful things!

Look of the Day: Army Jacket

Hey, everyone! Hope you're having a great day and really make the most of those last summer days!

Here's a very quick outfit post with my new utility jacket/shirt from Zara. As you probably know, I'm a huge fan of everything army/utility and khaki has to be one one of my favorite colors, so there's no surprise I have like 6 or 7 different army jackets, but this one is very special because it's adorned with crystals. I'm so into such high+low combos, god I love those designers for coming up with ideas like this!

I'm wearing:

Jacket - Zara (great army jackets here, here and here)
Dress - Glamorous
Heels - Zara
Bag - vintage
Watch - Michael Kors
