Ripped boyfriend jeans

Like I said in one of my previous posts, I've been looking for a good pair of boyfriend jeans for the longest time ever and when I finally found these I was beyond thrilled. You might be thinking: 'How can finding a pair of boyfriend jeans be that hard?' Well, I am a very picky person and I didn't want to settle for just about any pair I ran into, because I always know exactly what I want and what I'm looking for. I have found so many jeans that looked absolutely fantastic, but were either out of my size or didn't fit me at all. I nearly gave up on the hunt, but when I found these and tried them on, there was absolutely no doubt about me getting them. Not only are they the same exact color I wanted, but are extremely comfortable. Since I love wearing sweaters and turtlenecks (gee, I wonder how many times I mentioned that), I decided to pair them with a baggy brown turtleneck and a faux fur vest from New Yorker.

Two-tone sweater

Exam week is finally over and I am officially back! Having to put blogging aside for a short while was a real struggle, but taking these exams was an even bigger struggle. Now that they're all behind me, I'm ready to step back in and finally update my blog! Most of you who read and follow my blog know how obsessed I am with oversized sweaters and they're starting to feel like my second skin. Seriously, there's nothing more comfortable, warm and cozy than large knitwear. When I saw this bad boy at Zara, I knew it was meant to be and of course I went and picked it up, as it was love at first sight. I got a couple of things more, but I'll talk about them later. These photos were taken in the warmer area of my country, down on south, in Mostar. Even though it wasn't that cold, it was really windy, which is the main reason my hair couldn't stay in place. I was inspired to wear this because I saw something similar on an app called Stylekick, which is available both for Androids and iPhones. Stylekick is a place where you can find so many outfit inspirations, so make sure you give it a try!

New in

In the past few days I've gotten some brand new stuff and this is my first time creating a post of this sort. Of course, I've already used some of the things, but since they haven't been photographed I figure I should include them in this little photo shoot. I have finally found a perfect pair of ripped boyfriend jeans at LC Waikiki and I'm absolutely in love with them! I was looking for them for ages and when I finally found them I knew it was meant to be. Also, as a shoe addict, I have bought a few pairs of shoes which I absolutely love - pastel pink ballet flats at Stradivarius, black shoes at Zara and tan ankle boots at Bershka. The tartan backpack (which is by the way so incredibly cute) was bought by my sister in-law as a gift, also at LC Waikiki. The furry vest was bought at New Yorker and when it comes to makeup, the lip pencils are by Essence (they were around 1 Euro each, which is a bargain, if you ask me), lipstick is by Yves Rocher and the nail polish (doesn't quite fit the makeup category) is also by Essence. Last but not least, Flora by Gucci, which smells incredible.

Stuck in the 40's

Midi skirts are something I genuinely love wearing, because they're not too long nor too short and are just about the right length. When I found this vintage beauty, I knew it had to be mine. Both the color and the shape remind me of the 1940's, which is the reason this post is titled the way it is. I know I don't usually wear a lot of vintage pieces, but I'm a huge fan of everything vintage. I didn't want to go full-on vintage, so I paired this high waisted skirt with a knitted woolen sweater and my favorite ankle booties, which you have probably seen in some of my earlier posts.

Winter wonderland

My first outfit post of 2015 is finally here! The reason I'm running this late with the outfit posts is the fact that the temperatures were reaching -20 degrees in the past few weeks and I had two options - to bundle up and be the size of a polar bear or to try to look cute and freeze to death. I tried the second one once and, I kid you not, I got sick... Hooray! Now that the temperatures have risen a tad, I have finally gotten the courage to take off my jacket and snap a few photos. Even though I don't like snow, I genuinely did enjoy it this time. Moments like these remind me of my childhood, when I appreciated and cherished even the smallest things in life. I guess as people grow older, they start taking things for granted and it's just not the same anymore. However, I was truly happy this day.
