CASUAL BLACK&WHITE OUTFIT

Aug 13, 2017


To my mind simplicity is the key in creating a good outfit (I’m sure many people who believe in minimalism will agree with me on this). I truly believe in this statement and when choosing what to wear I go by the rule that less is more. In this post as well my outfit consists of very minimal items – a black cropped top and white jeans. I noticed that I have very few white items in my closet although I love to wear white. For me personally wearing white clothes somehow makes me feel important and to some point like a bad-ass. In other words the feeling is great and my conclusion is that I definitely need more of white in my closet. I am also eager to try an all-white outfit. Tell me, what color inspires you?

Manuprāt, vienkāršība ir atslēga laba outfit'a izveidē (šeit man noteikti piekritīs visi minimālisma cienītāji). Es uzskatu, ka tā patiešām ir, un, izvēloties apģērbu, vados pēc principa, ka mazāk ir vairāk. Arī šajā rakstā mans apģērbs sastāv no pavisam minimālām lietām – melns cropped stila topiņš un balti džinsi. Ievēroju, ka manā skapī ir ļoti maz balta apģērba, lai gan man ļoti patīk to nēsāt. Personiski man balts apģērbs liek justies svarīgai, savā veidā neaizskaramai... Vārdu sakot, sajūta ir laba, un mans secinājums ir tāds, ka garderobē šo krāsu noteikti vajag vairāk. Gribas arī sakombinēt stilīgu all-white outfit’u. Kura krāsa iedvesmo tevi?

Urban summer outfit

Aug 6, 2017

Honestly, my hand does not reach for hats often, but when it does, I feel extra responsible to put together the rest of my outfit perfectly from A to Z. So that no one dares to ask the common question “What are you wearing?!”.
Continuing the thought on hats, I was waiting for that Perfect sunny day without crazy wind to put it on, not worrying about wind blowing it off (you see, I really am not a hat person if I worry about such things :)). Anyway, I am becoming more and more aware that hats suite me well. This hat from H&M is perfect for hot sunny days and vacations by the sea but at the same time it is easy to create an urban look with it as well, such as this one. Once again I am wearing my Adidas Originals t-shirt (you can check out the first post where I have styled it here) and a tan suede skirt. Do you like the outcome?

Patiesību sakot, mana roka reti kad sniedzas pēc cepurēm, toties kad aizsniedzas, tad izjūtu atbildību (vai drīzāk spiedienu) atlasīt un sakombinēt pārējo apģērbu no A līdz Z. Nu tā, lai neviens neuzdrošinātos pajautāt visiem zināmo frāzi ar apslēpto zemtekstu: "Kas tad tev šodien mugurā?" Tulkojumā tas skanētu apmēram: "Nu gan, uzvilkusi, ko pagadās..".
Turpinot stāstu par cepuri, es gaidīju to perfekto saulaino dienu ar minimālu vēja pūsmu, kad to varēšu uzlikt, neuztraucoties, ka vējš to aizpūtīs prom (redziet, es patiešām neesmu nekāda lielā cepuru valkātāja, ja reiz uztraucos par tādām lietām :)). Toties arvien vairāk apzinos, ka cepures man tomēr piestāv. Šī cepure no H&M ir ļoti labs variants siltajām vasaras dienām, atpūtai pie jūras, bet tai pašā laikā ar to var izveidot arī pilsētniecisku outfit’u kā šis. Atkal esmu uzvilkusi savu iemīļoto Adidas Originals t-kreklu (pirmo rakstu var apskatīties šeit) un zamša svārkus. Kā jums patīk iznākums?

WHITE&YELLOW

Jul 30, 2017

 Did someone say yellow sunglasses? I say - why the hell not! For sure it is a bold choice, at least for me definitely. But when I actually got to the point of styling these sunglasses, I realized what a great statement piece they are - you can literally make the most boring outfit interesting with these. When choosing clothing and accessories for the day I like to challenge myself a bit by selecting at least one piece of which I am not 100% sure or I don't feel completely in my comfort zone wearing it. Be it leather pants, an unusual hat, high heels or just bright red lipstick, and in this case the yellow sunglasses - by challenging ourselves, we develop our creativity and sense of style. I recommend to all of you to not be afraid to experiment because the result might pleasantly surprise you. :)

Dzeltenas saulesbrilles, sakiet? Es saku - kāpēc gan ne! Tā bez šaubām ir drosmīga izvēle, vismaz man noteikti, taču uzvelkot šīs saulesbrilles, saprotu, ka tās ir lielisks statement aksesuārs, kas spēj padarīt interesantu pat vispliekanāko apģērbu. Izvēloties apģērbu un aksesuārus, man patīk sevi mazliet izaicināt, piemeklējot vismaz vienu lietu, par kuru neesmu 100% pārliecināta vai kurā nejūtos pilnībā savā komforta zonā. Vai nu tās būtu ādas bikses, kāda interesanta cepure, augsti papēži vai gluži vienkārši koši sarkanas lūpas, un šajā gadījumā tās ir dzeltenās saulesbrilles - šādi izaicinot sevi, mēs attīstam radošumu un stila izjūtu. Tādēļ es iesaku ikvienam nebaidīties un eksperimentēt, jo iznākums var jūs patīkami pārsteigt. :)

Seaside Casual

Jul 16, 2017

Yet another casual look which is perfect for long summer walks. These pictures were taken at the seaside in a very windy and chilly summer evening and to be honest I almost froze in these clothes. So much for Latvian summer.. I was struggling to keep my hair out of my face due to the strong wind, but hey, at least we made it to the golden hour and got to see the sunset. :) I kept this outfit super-minimal and avoided any extra accessories to let the clothing speak for itself. I am wearing a beige vintage jacket that I found in a vintage thrift store, it's from a soft high-quality fabric. I have to admit that often I am not satisfied with the quality of clothes made for fast fashion brands. And this is why I appreciate such good buys in second-hand stores. Have you ever wondered who was the previous owner of a second-hand item that you've bought? The thought to know what was she or he like, seems very intriguing to me. :)

Lūk vēl viens brīvā laika apģērbs, kas ideāli piemērots garajām vasaras pastaigām. Šīs bildes gan tika uzņemtas ļoti vējainā un vēsā vasaras dienā un, taisnību sakot, šajā apģērbā es trakoti nosalu. Bija konstanti jācīnās ar matiem, jo vējš tos nemitīgi purināja, taču prieks, ka noķērām skaisto zelta stundu pie jūras. :) Šo outfit'u saglabāju super-vienkāršu, bez liekiem aksesuāriem - lai apģērbs runā pats par sevi. Man mugurā ir vintage lietoto preču atradums - vintage jaka no mīksta, kvalitatīva auduma. Arvien vairāk pārliecinos par to, ka apģērbu kvalitāte fast fashion jeb ātrās modes veikalos bieži vien nav man pieņemama, tāpēc šādus atradumus ļoti novērtēju! Vai jūs kādreiz aizdomājaties par to, kas ir bijis iepriekšējais nēsātājs lietotai precei, kuru esat iegādājies? Man tas šķiet traki interesanti. :)

Ripped jeans

Jul 12, 2017
 
I think that beige tones suite summer well. Although this is not a typical summer outfit, it's appropriate for this summer's ever changing weather. The chill and rainy weather conditions gives us the opportunity to layer our clothes which, as you all know, is a huge trend for fall. For this outfit I have paired a long cardigan with a sweater both in identical beige color. To make the look more casual, I have chosen high waisted ripped jeans from h&m and my patent leather shoes which are well-loved.

Manuprāt, vasarai piestāv bēšie toņi. Šis gan ir vasarai nedaudz netipisks apģērbs, tomēr piemērots šīs vasaras mainīgajiem laikapstākļiem. Vēsais un lietainais laiks sniedz mums iespēju vilkt apģērbu kārtās, kas, kā jau zināms, ir ļoti aktuāla rudens tendence. Esmu sakombinējusi garu kardiganu ar džemperīti identiskā bēšā tonī, tam pieskaņojot plēstus džinsus ar augsto jostasvietu no h&m, kas padara outfit'u mazāk formālu, un savas iemīļotās lakādas kurpes.

The perfect oversized denim jacket

Jul 9, 2017

You won't often see me in a skirt or a dress because I tend to go for jeans and shorts much more often. The reason is simple - I love feeling comfortable and free. Nonetheless, there are times when my soul craves something feminine and in those times I look for a skirt and boots with a high heel in the corner of my closet. I love to balance feminine and masculine in my outfits. I wanted to create an outfit that does not scream feminine so I threw on an oversized denim jacket. I think it served it's purpose well. :) I have been looking for the perfect oversized denim jacket but unsuccessfully until I found this gem in a vintage thrift store. I think it's the one!

Šoreiz esmu izvēlējusies uzvilkt sarkanus piegulošus svārkus. Svārkos mani nevar redzēt bieži, jo viennozīmīgi esmu džinsu un šortu meitene. Tam ir pavisam vienkāršs izskaidrojums - man pārāk patīk justies brīvi un ērti. Tomēr ir reizes, kad dvēsele alkst pēc sievišķības, un šādās reizēs no skapja nostūra tiek izvilkti svārki un augstpapēžu zābaciņi. Tā kā man ļoti patīk balanss starp sievišķo un vīriško, gribēju outfit'u padarīt mazāk sievišķīgu, uzvelkot oversized stila džinsa jaku. Šķiet, man tas ir izdevies :) Jau ilgi meklēju ideālo šāda tipa jaku, taču veikalos neatradu. Šo pērli uzgāju vintage humpalās. Labs ķēriens!
