OOTD36: Navy Blue and Red

It has been a long time since I posted anything and it’s not because I gave up, I was just away 😀

The outfit I am posting today isn’t new as I had posted in on my instagram however I didn’t have time to put it here as well.

It’s just a simple combination of navy blue which has become one of my favourite colours and red.

OOTD35: Embroidery and Print

I am back with another outfit for spring but let’s face it – even though the sun is shining, it’s still way too cold to be wearing only that here in London. All the cheerful florals still need to be buried deep under a coat but oh well, I am quite used to freezing for a bit so that I could take some nice pictures 😀

Here I am wearing a sheer embroidered top from Zara which itself is lovely but a nightmare figuring out what to put underneath. I feel this way about the whole sheer fabrics’ trend because it looks nice but whatever you put or don’t put underneath kind of ruins it. Anyway, I decided to use a simple white body I got years ago from ASOS and whereas I don’t mind it too much if I don’t concentrate on it, I still don’t like the look of the very basic piece underneath an almost designer looking top.

The white body was the best choice I could think of for this outfit so here it is. I paired the embroidered top with a colourful camo print skirt and I’m very happy with the result as it makes me hopeful of warmer days and overall positive about the summer that’s coming up.

The Best of the Eyelet Trend

I’m back with a style edit post and the focus is on the eyelet trend. As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, I generally like this trend however some items can look very tacky so I decided to have a look online to see what’s out there. This was also a good excuse to just sit down and look through hundreds of items just in case I find something that’s totally unrelated but nice.

As always, I didn’t have the time or the desire to check every single high street retailer’s website but I chose the main brands I usually shop with, such as Zara, Mango, Bershka, H&M, Stradivarius, etc. I would say Zara embraced the trend the best therefore about a half of the items I selected to include here are from them.

Just to mention, the item 2 which is a white lace up skirt from Mango does not have eyelets in it however I still wanted to include it as I thought that side detail was quite nice.

Easter Outfit Inspiration 2

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 😀
