SWEATPANTS & HOW I STYLE THEM


It's way past my bed time but my brain isn't tired a bit. I can't quite comprehend how they work so I'm stuck here at 1am studying and at the same time writing a post. It's such an awful timing at the moment. Finals are already here. I've had 4 so far and I got 2 more to go. Internally I'm dying but hey it'll be worth it at the end. If I pass all of them of course. Fingers crossed.

Some time ago my sister and I went to Italy and we visited a department store where we bought ourselves some goodies. I knew I were going to buy something even though I decided a long time ago that I wouldn't spend money on unecessary items. Of course they had sales so I already knew that my plan is going to be ruined. I bought a few fashion pieces which I am really happy about and they are definitely something that I wouldn't choose right away. One of them are the sweatpants on the pictures.

Maja knows me and she also knows I would never go out in public in sweatpants unless I'm going to have a relaxed walk. This piece of clothing is something that changed my whole perspective on fashion. I could never wear sweatpants anywhere. I'm just that type of girl that likes to get all dressed up and puts some effort into her outfits. I always wear jeans, fancy pants or dresses, but never sweatpants. When I saw these I already noticed that they were different. First of all the colour of them is amazing. Navy blue is one of my favourite colours when buying clothes and when I saw these pants I immediately grabbed them. The second thing that I love about this item is the material. It's so soft and it almost feels as real silk. Definitely not your regular type of sweatpants. I just went straight ahead and tried them on. They fitted me perfectly. The top to go with it is also from that store. It was actually Maja who was trying it on at the time, but I noticed it would look great with my bottoms because of the colour of the stripes. When I tried the whole thing on, it was immediately sold and taken back home with me.

I am aware that sweatpants are already a fashion statement for some time now, but I just can't grasp the idea of people walking around in sweatpants and looking good. I guess I had to do my own testing. I see a lot of fashion influencers wearing them and looking absolutely amazing and now I see that it's not that hard to style them youself.

When I style these pants I definitely like to connect the top with the bottom. In this case I connected the colour of the top with the stripes at the side of the pants. You can also have a darker top - a navy blue one or even black. I would definitely recommend to keep it simple with the upper piece. I wouldn't add too many different patterns, but I would definitely encourage you to mix materials. Here, I immediately knew that I had to keep it simple with the top because pants were already somewhat shiny and I didn't want to overdo it by adding another shiny material.

All in all I think if you have 'fancy' sweatpants, you don't have to put too much effort into styling them. The pants themselves do the trick. All you need to do is find a top that suits you and doesn't overshine your amazing new piece of clothing. I'm super excited that I got them because I learned something new and from now on I will definitely not be afraid of getting a new pair of joggers ;) There is also a big plus to this purchase. I mixed comfort with style and that is one of my main rules when it comes to styling my outfits every day. To feel good in your outfit helps you feel good  about yourself as well and the level of confidence just goes as high as possible.

Hope you liked this post. Have a great day ahead.

TIME FOR PEPLUM TOP


Hello everyone. I have to say that I am stoked for summer. It's already here and I can't wait to fully enjoy it. Just 2 more weeks of studying and then I can do whatever I want. The best feeling ever. I've decided I'm not going to spend it watching tv shows and movies because I realised that is a waste of my time. I'll read and do more posts for you guys. I really miss taking pictures and just write about what is happening. I also miss making videos. I don't know why it just like the process of making one - film it, edit it and that's that. I hope I'll get to do that more often too.

Right now I am like a cocoon - I've been studying for a week and I haven't properly left the apartment. I will go crazy soon. And I still need to study for 2 weeks because my last exam is on June 23rd. I have no idea how I'll endure that. But I've decided I want to finish everything on time and I really hope I'll be able to do that. But after that I'll try to enjoy my vacation and do something productive. A lot of times it happpens that all I do is the opposite-watch tv and do nothing and then I argue with myself  why did I do that. That's so me. Hopefully this year it'll be different.

I wanted to share with you this gorgeous piece of clothing. I really like that it's so fancy. I can literally just wear my skinny jeans and this top and I'll look like I've put a lot of effort in it, when actually the top itself does all the work. You don't even have to add a lot of jewelry because of the golden detail under the collar bone. Maybe a few rings and that's more than enough. The other thing I really like about the top is the mixing of fabrics. The white part is silky material and the black part is faux leather. I am obsessed with mixing different fabrics because I feel like it adds some sort of dimension to your clothes, it looks really special. The fact that it's peplum also emphasises the girliness and the playfulness of the top which again makes it more special. All in all the top has a lot of my favourite features. Also you can spice up the whole outfit a little-add a pair of high heels and you are all set for a night out. You don't have to worry about anything. It's by far the most effortless outfit I've ever worn and still manage to look like I've done something more to it (don't even know what this sentence means xD).

That's it for today's post. Hope you enjoyed it and I hope it gave you some inspiration for your future outfits. Untill next time xx
