Patterned tees are comfortable wardrobe basics, but sometimes it's a bit difficult to style them, when the urge is too big to be lazy, and wear them with the good old black skinnies and a pair of sneakers. I made three sets, with three different monochrome patterned t-shirts, and tried to style them in a bit more exciting, but still comfortable way.
In the first look I paired this Monki sweat-tee with a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans. To balance out the sportyness and edgieness of the look, I chose a pair of slip-ons that look slightly elegant with their silver cap-toe, and added a pair of oversized sunglasses, that match the colours of the look, and make it a bit more elegant.
For the second look I chose this black and white eye-print shirt and decided to slightly soften it with grey and rose gold details. The tee is dressed up a bit with the structured skirt, but the whole outfit is kept on the sporty side with the New Balance sneakers and the digital watch.
For the third look I wanted to create something very summery, that's comfortable, but still pretty and stylish. I paired the Monki vertically striped tee with a bright red skater skirt and added a few classic accessories, like the white birkenstocks, the sunglasses from the first set, and a practical Mango shopper bag.

I just realized I haven't even shown you my biggest find of the sales, these Zara suede ankle boots. Their heels are the perfect height, and extraordinary shape, and a pair of grey shoes have been on my wishlist for a long time. They match my pastel clothes perfectly, they're comfortable and more importantly, they were about 15 Euros, which is less than cheap for a pair of real suede boots. So, prepare for lots of posts featuring these beauties, because I can't help but wear them all the time.

A collage-like series of pictures, featuring a mixture of prints from Kenzo to Dior, and windswept hairstyles, which match the beach on the artificial background of the shots. With slightly low saturation, and lighting that made the models look like they have porcelain skin, the photographer, Craig McDean managed to create an exciting, sophisticated pop-rock editorial.

I can't believe that I could finally upload an outfit post on here. I've found a temporary solution for my computer problems, so I can edit pictures now, and I have so many left I want to show you. I don't even remember when exactly we took these photos, but I think it was more than 2 weeks ago. It was still winter then, although not a very cold one. I love winter, but maybe because we didn't exactly have a classic, "real" winter, I'm glad it's over, and that it's starting to feel like spring again.
Pat McGrath did it again at the Dolce&Gabbana show. She created a fresh, fairy-like look, which was most importantly wearable for the everyday women. Mixed with this slightly messy, texturized updo, it created and effortlessly pretty beauty look.

(Notes: You might have noticed I haven't posted any outfits or personal pictures lately. It's due to my previously mentioned computer problems, which I still haven't been able to solve, and I also got sick a couple days ago, which left me little energy to come up with a solution, and for the blog as well. Hopefully everything will be back to normal in a matter of days.)
This year's Academy Awards was particularly boring, apart from a few funny moments, like the selfie that broke twitter, and Jim Carrey's introduction of animation, there were zero surprises, I predicted almost all the winners. Fashionwise almost everyone stayed in their safe territory, which resulted in not so extraordinary, but very stylish looks. Check out my red carpet favourites after the jump.

The 86th Annual Academy Awards are just around the corner. As much as it's more about the politics than the actual artistic value of the films, and most of the wins usually just make me angry, I'm going to be watching the awards from my bed, in my pjs, just like I've been doing it for years. I'll be probably live blogging on my tumblr, but right now I'll share with you my predictions and picks of the nominees. Before I do that, I have to state that I'm generally a bit disappointed at the nominees this year, and in some categories my favourites stand no chance at all. But I'll try to put away my bitter voice and try to be as objective as possible for a cinephile.

Skorts have been back for the past couple of seasons, and they're not only for little girls in the nineties anymore. I prepared 3 different looks to show what a versatile and key piece a denim skort can be.
In this first look I tried to create a comfortable, everyday look, which is perfect for busy college day, or even for a daytrip to a new town. I paired the denim skort from River Island with a cozy sweater and matching tartan slipons. The backpacks are a practical but stylish addition to the outfit, along with the oversized glasses and the watch, which reminds me of the huge Baby G watches everyone wore in 1999.
The second look is a more girly, but still minimalist look. I decided only to add one colour to the dark blue denim, different shades of pale pink. The white camisole looks effortless and sexy with the denim, and the heeled suede ankle boots and the biker jacket make it a bit edgier, which is in an interesting contrast with the pastel shades.
The last outfit combines sporty, fun and statement accessories with classic pieces like the denim skort and the sweatshirt. To balance out all the sporty items, I added some glittery and metallic details, like the House of Holland bag, and the Monki rings.
(Click on the sets for the list of the items!)
Long lashes, brownish nude lips, groomed brows, subtle contours on the face. Not only the makeup, that put a focus on the eyes, but the hair referenced Brigitte Bardot in the sixties. Her timeless beauty style's 2014 version is just as sexy and feminine as it was 50 years ago, but a bit more smooth, as the hair is big and volumized, but completely straight. This beauty look by Pat McGrath and Guido Palau can be easily adapted into an everyday or party version too. I definitely am going try it.

On this week's Male Model Monday I present you the absolutely beautiful Ryan Kennedy. Some people think you can't say about a man that he's beautiful, but they obviously never seen Ryan or his pictures. Just look at those eyes and those pretty lips. Beautiful.
Anyways, I hope you enjoy this small doze eye candy on this Monday morning. I sure need something to lift up my mood a bit, as I've been frustrated about my broken laptop video card, or whatever my computer's problem is. The screen got all flickering and pixelated, which makes it impossible to edit pictures, so this will possibly effect my posts here. Sorry in advance, if I don't update as usual in the next few days, I'm trying to fix this asap. Happy monday to all of you!
