Goodbye autumn

DallowayTerrace3

Wow this year has really flown by. I can’t believe it’s nearly November! The summer time has officially ended (I did enjoy the extra hour in bed) and it seems to have gotten cold literally overnight. I feel like the whole October was so mild it seemed more like Indian summer but we have gone straight to winter. This weekend felt very cold and it’s the end of outfits like this one. I’m wrapping up from now on.

Good bye lighter layers and light fabrics, hello over the knee boots and cashmere (I just bought this jumper, it’s on sale and I have it in two colours). One thing I will keep on wearing is burnt orange (new popular colour for me as mentioned here) and I will definitely be pairing it with pink among other colours.

Recently I’ve been really into a paper bag waist skirts and trousers. It’s a very flattering style (your legs look longer and your waist smaller) and it’s very comfortable. I’ve been wearing these trousers a lot (as seen also here in more casual way) and I must say I love adding my own belt (rather than the one they come with) to change the look and dress it up as well. I must say I now own two designer belts and they have been such a great investment because they really elevate your look.

So who’s excited for November? I’m going to see a ballet I’ve never even heard of later in the month and I’m very excited. Also the Christmas decorations will go on soon everywhere and I really love London dressed up. And I must admit that as much as I’ve enjoyed the prolonged summer and such a lovely and warm October I am now ready for winter clothes and jumpers and coats and all that.

What are you looking forward to in the next few months?

How to be happy

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Life can be very up and down but I had a really good week two weeks ago and a wonderful day when these photos were taken and it inspired me to write this post. I want to write about my amazing day not because I want to show off but because I want to inspire you to do things that you love and make the most of every day and be happy too.

I really believe that happiness is a state of mind and if you choose to be happy you can be. Don’t get me wrong I don’t feel happy all the time and I have my down days and many things that frustrate me, but I try to stay positive and overall I can say I am happy.

I am 37 single woman and my life is far from perfect but I always try to find time to do things I enjoy and that definitely makes me feel better. Yes I would love to meet someone wonderful to share my life with and do more things with a partner and have a family and home but in the meantime I will not sit at home, wait for my Prince Charming and be miserable.

I’m not going to lie the day when these photos were taken was quite an expensive one but it doesn’t have to be. Things I love include reading (doesn’t cost much) or even going for a walk (costs nothing). So on this particular day I met up a friend for an afternoon tea at the Sketch Gallery (pink heaven) and as much as I love to go somewhere super fancy once in a while meeting up with a good friend for a coffee and a cake is just as good. But I love dressing up and going somewhere special sometimes and why not. Save money elsewhere if you have to and treat yourself to a fancy lunch. You will love every minute.

We’ve been very lucky with the weather and October has been very mild and that day the weather was just gorgeous so I decided to walk my friend back to her place and then go for a walk in a park. I love walking and it’s really good not only for your body but also for the soul. I love London and often go for walks by the river or in the numerous parks. I sat there (in Hyde Park) for ages as well, feeling the Indian summer’s sun on my face. It felt so nice.

After I walked some more through some familiar and less familiar parts of London to the National Theatre. Can you believe it was my first time there? I love doing cultural things and I went to see Shakespeare’s play Anthony and Cleopatra, which I really enjoyed. Again it’s something I spent money on but can be done on a budget. I try to go to either ballet, opera, musical or a play every few months and I usually go for tickets in the middle price range but you can get really cheap ones too. And if you want to experience some culture without spending a penny, we’re very lucky in London because so many museums and galleries are free and there’s so much amazing art of show. I definitely recommend The National Gallery and also The Wallace Collection.

But if culture is not your thing that’s not a problem. We are all different and we all like different things. Think hard about what makes you happy and dedicate a time every week to do it and find joy in little things. Get out of your comfort zone, be spontaneous and try new things. You will find happiness I promise you.

My day was amazing and I loved every minute. It’s not something I can do every day. I don’t have time or money to do it every day, but it gives me so much joy it makes me smile for days. So it’s totally worth it. And I’m already looking forward to another day like this.

But I can tell you on another day in the same week I was very lucky with the weather again and went for a very long walk along the Thames and I only spent Β£15 that day in Costa for coffee, sandwich and a cake and then I took a boat ride on the river for the first time I’ve been living in London (!) and the day was just as lovely. In the evening I watched Strictly come dancing (I love that show) and that day filled me with as much joy. It really is not about spending money but realising what makes you happy and making sure you do it as much as you can.

What things make you happy?

Autumn florals – printed pants

autumngflorals5

These pants were kind of an impulsive purchase. I walked into a Zara store, saw them there, loved the print, didn’t even try them on and hoped for the best. When my mum saw me in them she asked what was the wild thing I was wearing but I actually love them and have worn them quite a few times already.

The print may be a bit out there but pair them with a simple white shirt and I think they are look smart. I wore them to work and received a few compliments but obviously I wouldn’t suggest wearing them for work if you have strict dress code. But they are fun, very comfortable and and not expensive. So you may see me in them a lot.

I also wore them with my pink Isabel Marant Etoile jumper from last post and I think they’re surprisingly versatile. They’re made from a very light fabric and thanks to the very mild weather we’ve been having they’ve been great, but maybe when it gets much colder they won’t be suitable so I’m making the most of them.

Printed trousers are easier to style than you may think. Just stick to really simple good basics for the rest of the look. White shirt is my wardrobe must have as I already raved about here and it makes anything look more sophisticated.

What do you think of this look? Do you like printed trousers?

How to wear stripes part 3 – skirt

howtowearstripesskirt5

Hopefully by now you have seen my part 1 and part 2 of how to wear stripes. I showed you how to wear striped jacket and striped top and today I want to show you how to wear striped skirt. This is a final part of this series, but to be honest I wear stripes so much you will alway see me wearing them.

As I mentioned before it’s a very easy pattern to style and it looks very chic. Just always stick to the same colour palette if it’s something very colourful already. With a simple Breton top you can add another colour but with this skirt I chose same colours for the rest of my look. I actually wore this skirt already here and chose to bring out the Burgundy out of it, here I highlighted the pink.

This skirt is so versatile despite its many colours and can be styled many ways. I love wearing it and now I’m looking at these pictures it’s making me want to put it on again soon so maybe I’ll wear it tomorrow. It’s an easy A-line shape as well which I think suits most body shapes.

I hope that with my 3 different looks I’ve inspired you to wear more stripes. Unlike some other patterns they never go out of fashion and they are a fun print. Just keep the rest of the look simple. Choose any of the colours that are featured in the print for the rest of your look (in this case you can go for white, yellow, pale blue, rust, pink, Burgundy..) and you can’t go wrong. You might think this skirt is too colourful it would be difficult to style but it’s actually very easy.

Do you like stripes?

Fall colour combinations: burnt orange

fallcolourcombinations6

Last week I talked to you about some new colour combinations I’m loving for autumn (see it again here) and there’s another colour I’m really into this season – burnt orange and its combinations with other colours.

I must admit I’ve never really been into any kind of orange much in the past but it’s a surprisingly flattering colour on most skin tones and it pairs so well with many other colours including pink (yes!). I’ve bought these trousers completely on a whim but I can tell you I’ve been wearing them so much. So far I’ve paired them with rust, pink, camel and off-white and not only they are super comfortable they literally go with everything. I’ve got another very different look coming up soon to show you a smarter more evening look so make sure you will come back to see that in couple of weeks.

In here I just threw in all the colours together and I think it actually works and shows how adaptable all these autumn colours are. If you look in the nature and the changing leaves they are all there (well except for pink).

What do you think of this look? Do you like burnt orange?

How to wear stripes part 2 – top

howtowearstripestop7

In my new Wednesday’s series How to: I’m showing you how to wear stripes 3 different ways. You can see how I wore a striped jacket in Part 1, and today I want to expand on wearing stripy tops.

I’ve mentioned Breton top in my first post about stripes and it’s the easiest way to wear this print and you should definitely have some in your wardrobe, but in here I want to show you more fun and more adventurous way.

I love colour and most colourful things and the colour palette of this top is just so pretty. It’s easier to style than you may think. If you stick with the colours in this top (and there’s so many to chose from) that’s your palette for the rest of your look. I kept it simple with white skirt (which I have been wearing so much by the way – I wore it very different way here) and chose colourful accessories.

My main tip to wearing Β a colourful item:

Stick to the same colour palette and don’t add any more colours that are not included in that item.

It’s ok to add neutrals and metallic jewellery but keep the rest fairly simple. Don’t overcomplicate the look and make the stripy (or other printed top) be the main focus. This look is quite fun and playful but you could totally make it more sophisticated with adding navy or black and put a blazer over it and you’re ready to work as well.

Sometimes people are afraid of stripes/prints but it’s all about the styling and the colour palette. Like I’ve mentioned few times: keep the rest simple. You can really style them up or down and have a little play with stripes.

What’s your favourite way to style stripes?

New colour combinations I’m loving for fall

fallcolourcombinations8

This fall I’ve been adding some new colours to my wardrobe, apart from the usual Burgundy that is always a popular addition this time of year, and I’ve been playing with new Β colour combinations and I’m obsessed.

The new colours I’ve been adding are rust and burnt orange and who would have thought they’d pair so well with pink. I tend to wear my brighter colours like pinks, reds and oranges with more neutral colours like beiges or greys and even with navy but never with each other. Well this autumn I’ve been getting out of my comfort zone and I’m loving it.

I’m digging rust and pink and I’ll be wearing variations on this look in the coming months a lot. It’s a new combination to me and I’ve added neutral booties this time but I’m starting to get more adventurous even with that. I’ve added these Burgundy boots to my wardrobe and they are fun way to add colour to outfits and also loving these burnt orange ones.

Last week I started new series How to where I’ll be showing different ways to style things. You can read again part one here. I would love to know what you think.

Have you discovered any new colour combinations?
