Yesterday morning, the weather forecast was very positive, so I decided to put on a blue maxi dress with a poncho vest and sandals:
Total look (Saturday 21st of May, 2016)
Maxi dress– Edc by Esprit
Camisole- Esprit (worn under the dress for modesty @ work)
Blue poncho vest- Esprit (previously worn here)
Despite the positive forecast, the weather was cloudy and there was no sunshine, so I was happy to have brought my poncho vest. I have them in a few different colours and love to wear them. They’re perfect for when it’s a little chilly but still kinda warm. If you’re a person who – like me – sweats easily, you might love this type of vest as well!
Maxi skirts are the best. They hide my compression stockings, work with all types of shoes and if they’re a basic style, they help create the look you want, whether that is sporty, classic, dramatic, boho or romantic. Today’s outfit is the perfect proof that a monochromatic look doesn’t need to be boring. The key is to work with different hues of one colour and/or different textures:

White camisole– Esprit
Lace T-shirt- H&M (old)
Maxi skirt- Edc by Esprit (previously worn here)
Blue poncho vest- Esprit (also shown in this post)
Necklace- made by my granny (also featured here and here)
Moccasins– Esprit (currently on sale!)
Oooh, boy, it was not a good idea to wear these new moccasins all day long. I have really difficult feet and shoes in between boots and sandals are often very risky. When I tried on these moccasins, they seemed very comfortable because of the soft leather. But after a few hours of walking at work, I starting feeling aches and the skin at my heels being cut. Don’t know if it’s the shoes or my feet, but next time I’ll be wearing them for a shorter amount of time, that’s for sure.
Last Friday, I was wearing an ensemble that I love to pull out of the closet when I want to feel comfy yet fashionable:

T-shirt- Edc by Esprit (previously worn in different colour here)
Gray kimono vest (not in the pictures)- Esprit
Mint is one of my best colours. It instantly gives a freshness boost to my face. Too bad my eyes were closed on all the pictures (the reason why I had to cut off my head on the photos, haha). You will have to take my word for it I suppose. The loose pants with the ethnic print were bought 2 years ago to make sure I had something fashionable and comfy to wear a few months after my first knee operation. The product description online called the print blue/white, but to me the blue kinda looks like a black to be honest. That’s why I combine the pants with both black and blue sandals.
My favourite pair of jeans in my closet definitely are my skinny boyfriend jeans.
They’re comfy, go with almost everything I have and therefore, make getting dressed in the morning easy peasy!

T-shirt- Esprit (same in fuchsia worn here)
Skinny boyfriend jeans- Esprit
Kimono- H&M (also worn here)
The boyfriend jeans is something I have been wearing for several years now, but they have been really trendy the past few months and I have seen more and more people wear them. Aren’t you yet convinced? Then it is good to know that there are several styles out there on the market, so make sure to try on lots of different pairs and maybe you’ll be sporting a boyfriend jeans as well in the future!
This weekend, the weather was nice and warm, so I wore a pair of palazzo pants I bought a few months ago to work:
Total look 1 (Friday 6th of May, 2016)
Palazzo pants– Edc by Esprit
Scarf- Vero Moda
2 necklaces layered- Camaïeu + Esprit
Boots- Mezura (I opted for leather boots because I didn’t feel like showing my compression stockings)
Total look 2 (Saturday 7th of May, 2016)
T-shirt- Edc by Esprit
Palazzo pants- Edc by Esprit
These pants are the best. They are really comfortable when the weather is hot and can be paired with both flat shoes and heels. Do you like to wear palazzo pants? And if so, how do you style them?
P.S.: Please don’t mind the tired face expressions, both days were really busy and I was exhausted after a hot and long day at work.
Grey jeans are very easy to combine. They work with neutral colours, bright and soft ones. A colour combo that I believe is really nice is moss green and grey:
I started this outfit with the grey jeans and wanted to keep the T-shirt in the same hue. To make the look more colourful, a moss green vest and a mint/white/gold statement necklace were added.

Cardigan- Edc by Esprit, bought last year in sales, currently available online in other colours (here and here)
Straight jeans- Esprit
Necklace- Forever21 (previously worn here)
A powerful colour combination that I adore is royal blue and camel:
I started this look by picking the camel suedine skirt, decided to combine it with the royal blue shirt with long sleeves and added blue tights and a necklace made by my granny to complete the outfit. When looking back at my previous posts the last months, I realise the brown boots I was wearing yesterday have been worn a ton of times. The perfect proof that they are super comfy and easy to combine! In my closet, I have a lot of different shoes, but you can easily say these booties are my favourites. I’m not looking forward to the day they are gonna fall apart. Do you have a favourite pair of shoes?

PS: I know the last picture is crappier than crappy, but I wanted to show you guys the whole look and since I was alone that night, I had to snap a few pictures with my MacBook.
