Hello there! You have probably already seen this photo on my Instagram recently and if you continue to scroll and read, you'll learn why I love this simplicity of an outfit more than I love bread.

style yourself happy: nailing that casual look this autumn

After what feels like forever I'm sitting at the keyboard and typing this down. A broader explanation of my absence will come, but for now just know that being away from blogging has been hard for me because it's one of the things that I really enjoy doing without ever feeling pressure or stressed. This is my safe haven, my happy place, the place where I can let go of everything that bothers me and makes me unhappy. So how and why would I fall into this pit of no-blogging, I'll tell you later, but now... autumn is on our doorsteps and we have to embrace it with our looks!

Feeling good is all about looking good because when you look good, you feel good. Of all the areas of style that we tend to struggle with, nailing that casual look without appearing messy is one of the most complex.

The fact is that casual wear isn’t about rolling up to a coffee date with the girls in sweats and an oversized tee or skinny jeans and a hoodie; it’s about creating smart, stylish looks with a relaxed and casual vibe to them.

Not sure how to dress in a casual but smart and stylish way? Below are four casual looks that are perfect for almost any occasion. They are simple and easy to customise, so are ideal as you can tailor them to fit your personal sense of style.

Casual Look 1: Ripped jeans, tucked in tee & oversized cardigan

The foundation of casual style is finding that perfect outfit combination that’s stylish and of course, comfortable. A perfect example of this kind of look is the combo of high-waisted, ripped jeans (black or blue denim), a tucked in tee and an oversized cardigan. Stripes are really in this season, so a nautical striped tee in black, red or blue could be ideal. For the cardigan, opt for a design that’s made of a chunky knit to add to the coziness and comfort of the look. As for shoes, pick a pair of flats, either ballet flats, espadrilles or pumps.

Casual Look 2: High waisted denim skirt, slogan tee, and leather jacket

For a more chic take on casual style, pair a high-waisted denim skirt with a tucked in slogan tee, and a leather jacket. This look says cool, stylish, and elegant. If the weather's a little cold, add a pair of knitted tights to the look - gray or navy knitted tights, depending on the color of your tee, could work well.

Casual Look 3: Cut off jeans, 3/4 sleeve striped top, & oversized denim jacket

What about casual style for those slightly warmer days? For warmer autumn days, a pair of cut off super skinny jeans in black, teamed with a 3/4 sleeved striped top tucked in, and topped with an oversized denim jacket can work well. Team this look with a pair of ballet pumps or a pair of trainers, such as Converse or Adidas trainers, which you can browse the different styles of here. Top off the look with designer sunglasses (or faux designer) and a satchel-style bag.

Casual Look 4: Denim pinafore dress and tee

Pinafore dresses have become style statements this year, due to how versatile they are. For autumn and winter, teaming a denim pinafore with a 3/4 or long sleeved top can create the ideal casual look. It’s stylish, comfortable, and cute. Top with a chunky knit cardigan, add a pair of Converse, and a scarf, and you’ve got the ultimate AW17 outfit - cool, sophisticated and wonderfully comfortable.

There you have it, a few casual looks that make nailing that casual look this autumn much easier. I know I'll try these looks this autumn, and you?

Love,
Ieva

wandering around


After such a big break from blogging, I'm fashionably late to my newest article. This time around, I'm going to share with you a few snaps of the outfit I wore when we discovered Barcelona and Montjuic fountain, castle, park and Joan Miro foundation. It was quite a heavy day on our feet but it was awesome enough to be worth all those extra steps thanks to faulty Google maps. 
Another post with our favourite places where to eat, drink and recharge while exploring, will be up in no time. We found so many gems and met such great people, the vibe in Barcelona is incredible!

Fill Your Summer Break With Amazing Experiences

from here
 

 It always feels like a long summer break when you finish college at the end of the semester. After all, you have potentially three months to kill before you study again. And while some students enjoy just relaxing, others get restless during the long break. And it’s worth making the most of the time you are away from college. After all, you are unlikely to get such a long time off again in your life once you get a job! Therefore, here are some amazing experiences you should consider doing during your summer break.

How to Dress to Achieve Your Fitness Goals

from here

If you want to get fit or lose weight and create the life you really want, before you even think about pounding the pavement or hitting the gym, you need to take some time to put together the perfect fitness outfits.

The saying ‘dress for success’ is typically used to refer to work situations, where it is important to look the part at job interviews and meetings, but it could just as equally be applied to exercise too.

If you start your foray into the world of fitness with the right clothing for the job, it is likely you will have a much better time being active than if you start out wearing clothes that were not designed for the task at hand.

If you are serious about getting fit, take a look at the following list of important fitness clothing:
