It’s been a while since I last posted anything, I guess I just decided to take some proper time off this Easter, you know with loads of eating and just unapologetically relaxing.
I am probably kind of late with the whole eyelet trend but I found this jumper in New Look and thought it was nice. For me eyelets can make it or break it and quite often ends up looking cheap however sometimes it looks really good.
I’m not too happy with myself doing such a dark look when the weather’s supposed to be getting better and generally more optimistic but oh well, I think the jumper goes with black the best so here it is. I hope the blue belt adds some spring vibes 😀
Also I’ve almost finished doing ‘the best of the eyelet trend’ style edit so the next blog post will be me showing the nicest items I’ve found online!

Here’s the second Easter outfit suggestion post that I’d promised to do!
I’m not going to do a lot of talking because I would just be repeating myself how I was looking for light coloured plain dresses with a bit of a frill 🙂
This is my last Easter post so I guess I won’t miss a chance to wish everyone who is celebrating this day a nice Easter and an equally nice day to those who don’t 😀
Dress – Zara
Shoes – ASOS
Tights – Lindex

I sometimes get curious about what’s out there for those looking for an outfit for an occasion. In this case I am talking about the Easter that’s coming up. I have to admit that after checking out the available stuff online I worry about the busy and the careless girls who leave it all to the last minute to find a perfect dress or an outfit. It could do with something I could even call a bit of a trauma I had a few years ago just before my convocation.
I was doing some travelling after finishing university but I made sure I came back for the graduation however I didn’t have a lot of time to find a dress. I have to say my mind was elsewhere because I was having a good time travelling so worrying about some dress wasn’t even on my mind. And then it was a bit too late to get something that was just right for it so I ended up wearing a dress that I already had (which was a lovely dress by the way) but I wanted something new and special for it.
So believe me when I say that it actually makes me worried about not being able to find something perfect for some special day or an event 🙂
I went online to check out the dresses that some of the brands that I normally would shop with had. The winners of my research were Zara and Mango offering a range of dresses from simple dressy type to gowns. My criteria was something light and plain coloured however floral prints would be acceptable also. I was also looking for some ruffles or pleats as well as slightly oversized silhouettes. The length preference that I has was maxi or midi dresses however I could only find a few of those that made it to my list. I am sure I would have found some nice dresses on ASOS however I wasn’t quite up for looking through 5538 items 😀
5. New Look
I usually get quite excited about accessories’ posts just like today. I tend to either neglect them or overdo with it, a perfect example would be today’s post inspired by a picture one of my friends liked on Instagram. You can see the inspirational picture here which is an outfit from Marni’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection.
I love the minimalistic and clean aesthetic of this look as well as the oversized pockets. I am not too sure whether those are supposed to be pockets or some sort of waist bags but I love the way it looks. The funny thing is that I was shopping last week and I had quite a few paper bags to carry and I was thinking to myself that it would be great to somehow attach those bags to my waist so that I wouldn’t need to feel the weight of it on my arms or shoulders and then soon after this I saw the Marni’s outfit 😀
I have to mention that I did my own version of this because I enjoyed experimenting with it a lot but I did not wear it throughout the whole day. That is mostly because the strap of the green bag can only be wrapped and tied around my waist and doesn’t stay like this for long whereas the white bag is great because it can be undone like a belt and securely fastened.
I think wearing double bags does not only look great but can be very useful to keep stuff in it also. It’s like a fashionable version of a bumbag. I want to try wearing two bags that are the same around my waist which I think would look amazing.
