When it Rains












H&M army jacket, H&M skirt, H&M socks, All Saints Boots


As for the rainy Spring and Summer days I like to find shelter under the hood of my Army Jacket, that is when it not pours of course.. Most of the time I just update and make any look rain-proof with this jacket and adding some boots!

I decided to wear the jacket with a short skirt, over-knee socks and All Saints boots. I really became a huge fan of All Saints, especially the leather jackets and the boots. I have a massive wish-list when it comes to their boots!

keep it tone..

Thats me going tone-on-tone again, the dress, socks and shoes are often in rotation and I just love the the scalloped blazer because it adds a hint of color.

Most of the H&M dresses I'm wearing on my blog are bought about two years ago, well maybe three years ago? I guess they last so many seasons because the design is a quite simple loose fit a-line and easy to style differently. I always try to shop for items that last a while and are not too trendy! I do pick up trends in shoes though :)

Inspiration





















Everything via
weheartit.com

Some of my current inspiration, I'm really feeling prints and structures right now, and I'm really loving the colors, no need to say that I need to find myself that Madonna Tee asap!!

My birthday is coming up soon, within a month and I'm trying to figure out if I can somehow make a smart birthday wish-list, you know shoes and stuff, I wish Topshop had somehow a gadget that would allow me to make a wishlist I could email out, hehe

I have different trips planned out, I promised to a friend to visit her in Spain this summer and I'm really looking forward to that and I just heard my Aunt bought a freaking house in Italy (Toscana) that I totally need to check out and last but not least I really really have to get back to New York but I think I wait with the travels till after my Birthday since I haven't had a chance to celebrate it with my family and childhood friends for over 5 years now!!

black bodycon

This bodycon dress is so comfi to wear, today I'm wearing my wedge booties with them but most of the time I combine the dress with my All Saints boots.

With bodycon/mini dresses I just love blazers and I'm really loving the pastel and scalloped blazers, I guess you can never have too many of them.

The combination becomes almost '90s Beverly Hills 90210, no?

Easy Breezy









Top; Zara, Chiffon Tulip Skirt courtesy of Storets, Booties; Miu Miu

The Weather came out warmer then expected today, I was initially all layered up, same skirt but layered with different tops, I thought I was wrapped up into a sauna so I didn't know how fast to change into something more breezy!!

Oh, I started to catch up on Lost, somewhere I stopped following the series half way of season 3 so I gotta have a whole lotta catching up to do!! This will keep me busy for a while for sure!

Abbey Lee






Abbey Lee Vogue Russia March 2010

I'm in love with this look, I love the big floral crown and have been addicted to these soft pastel colors for Spring and Summer. I really need to shop for big silk flowers to accessorize hair, hats, bracelets and maybe baskets... hmmm

Dress 'n Boots
























To edge out romantic, frilly dresses or just simply pastel colors I always stick with boots, these new boots are perfect because they have a heel but maintain a rough look!

I simply belted the H&M shirt dress but did so unevenly (by pulling-out and tucking-back-in the dress below and above the belt)


Oh.. and a little skin secret; I always use Per-fekt body perfection gel on my legs!!!

I'm wearing; H&M dress, H&M belt, Zara bag, Walter coat, Boots

Pastel Pink Hair









So yes, I did it! After the last post I went straight to the store to get pink dye, I went for a brand called La Riche "Directions" which is a semi-permanent dye and picked the Pastel Pink color, I applied it twice to my hair, first time I directly washed it out, really within a minute and the second time I applied the dye only to the tips of my hair and washed it out within 5 minutes, the result is a washed out faded pink exactly how I wanted it to be!

The weather on the other hand has been horrible!! rain, overcast, more Autumn then Spring!! So it's been hard to get out for an outfit shoot and most of all to get a great shot of my pink hair :/ sucks.. So I guess I have to wait for the Sun to come out again to really enjoy the pink glow!

As for the outfit; I really went for Golds, Beige and Neutrals, the dress is from Diane von Furstenberg, Jacket is Vintage and you can find the boots here

let them eat cake







The other day I watched Sofia Coppola's "Marie Antoinette" again... and there is only one thing I want right now.... pink hair.... light washed out fuzzy pink hair, and only at the ends...

So, what I will do ( since the Pink is spooking through my mind the past few days ) I will hit the publish button, run out to get the dye and then (tonight) just do it! Big change of course that it wont quite work out the way I want it, but then.. I guess, we all will have a good laugh the next few outfit posts :)

Patterns









Today I felt like playing up the florals again, and I totally felt like just layering whatever and not to be too matchy matchy.

I wear floral leggings from the H&M (got them last week), a lace intimate top, vintage blouse, floral hat from Shop Dixi, leather fringe vest from Forever21 and vintage Native American boots that I found at a vintage shop in the Lower East Side.
