Style never equals Fashion to me. I feel it, but I could  never describe it just with couple words. Everybody understand what fashion or style means in general, but when you ask what is the difference you hear long pause before the answers, if you even get one.

I love photoprint! I think photoprint trend on clothes never goes away. Sometimes it just becomes more pronounced. But almost every year and every season I can find something with photoprint in one or two runway shows. And of course I'm a big fan of Mary Katarntzou, who basically made her name on that!

Color Inspiration 20

Since I've started a new hundred of my color inspiration series, I decided to change the frame. What do you think of it? Is it too much and I should be more modest? Well, I see people pinning my pictures and at least they will know where they came from! After I read some advice for beginners (who I am) I added watermark to photos. It's not like somebody is trying to steal my photos (believe me, I would be the proudest person in the world), but just in case....

Colorful belts

Stacy Adams navy leather man's belt, purchase a year ago

Last week I wrote about one item of my wardrobe. Well, actually it was about several items at a time, but they all are sleeveless knitted tops and how I like to wear them during summer and fall!

Today I decided to dedicate the whole post to belts.

Maxi crochet skirt

At Facebook group - an awesome community if really talented ladies -  I promised to finish and show my new project! I probably would never finish this big skirt without their support and inspiration! And here I am!

I love crocheting! I really enjoy looking at crochet items, but only 10% of what I see I would wear myself. I mean kids' or home decorating items always looks great, cute, funny. I'm talking women's clothes. And even nowadays when it's super trendy and every designer includs crochet outfits in his runway shows, I'm still really cautious making crochet clothes for myself and wearing it. Crochet patterns and texture is so reach and busy by itself that usually it requires all other items of your outfit to follow it, so you build your look around them, adjusting your style to peasant/country, hippy or "artistic freak".  I still do not know how to describe my own style, but it's non of mentioned above. 

Color Inspiration #19

Today I finished my Friday "color inspiration" photo and it was #100? Did I really made one hundred color mixes? I will take a break and double check it... You can help me to count (I will add links to previous CI in the bottom of next page). Wow! 

How I's started? I was following some color scheme boards on Pinterest, sometimes trying to repeat my favorite colors in my outfits. And this summer I decided to make my own!

Sleeveless top-sweater-vest.

I feel like I need to confess again. This time in my love to sleeveless sweaters or vests or knitted tops... I can not find the right term for it, but I hope you know what I mean. I looked at my wardrobe (and my virtual wardrobe too) and realized I have tons of different color knitted vests.

Sometimes I wear them as a top under jackets or cardigans, sometimes I layer them with blouses, shirts or regular sweaters. It's always like 'buy one - get one free' deal!

Color inspiration 18

I'm using last warm days to mix some of my fall winter wardrobe with summer shoes and clothes. This way I can do more different combinations I have not tried before, But cool mornings make me to choose more subtle and quiet colors. So that's how I look like last week.

Chequered top and joggers by TopShop

My first outfit with this set. Accent on purple.
I'm always a little bit concern to buy sets of clothes with the same pattern. My biggest question is if I will be ably to wear it separately with something else.

My top and joggers from TopShop were sold as separates but it's obvious that they were made to wear togethear. Well, top can be always worn with pair of jeans, but what about joggers? Should I even put them in my shopping bag? This pants are something completely different from my regular style. Not just color and pattern, but relaxed, really casual fit, I do not wear often, and hardly have any clothes to go with that.

Color Inspiration 17

My color mood changes with temperature dropping. And to be honest, I can not complain, this September and beginning of October we had pretty good weather: couple rainy days, couple cold mornings, but I'm still on  my spring-summer clothes and shoes. And I'm not in a big hurry to put on fall clothes, because I know: once I put it on I will have to wear sweaters and coats non-stop for next 5-6 month!!! So do not push me to show my fall outfits, lets enjoy the summer a bit more.

What's up? How are you doing?

I realized that I feel a million times better if I have a new package in the mail! It gives me excitement and expectations.

I track it every morning and several times during the day. Then I run to my mail box, I tear all the wrapping apart, like kids on Christmas morning. I try it on!!!! I jump up to the ceiling if it fits and I like it. I get mad if I have to return it... But next minute I go back on-line and look for something new. :)
