No coffee, no workee. Alternatively, it phrase can also be spelled 'no coffee, no workie'. It seems to be a popular thing to post on social networks. There are even new versions of this phrase, like 'no coffee, no talkie'. Have you ever heard that one? I admit it made me smile when I saw it for the first time.
You see, I'm a self professed coffee addict. Maybe coffee lover sounds nicer, but in all honesty I'm addicted to caffeine. I could live without coffee, if I could have lots of tea instead but that's basically the same thing, isn't it? As you may know already, some types of tea are caffeine free, but not all. I honestly enjoy drinking caffeine free teas (such as chamomile and ginger tea for example), but I love those with caffeine just as much. I can't imagine drinking decaf coffee, though.
The bottom line is that I'm aware that if I decreased my coffee intake, I would probably just increase my tea intake, so my caffeine levels would be the same. Considering that, I don't see the point in giving up coffee. Why not enjoy both? In moderation naturally. High levels of caffeine (no matter how they get in our system) can cause a lot of health issues. Better to keep those caffeine levels moderate.
In other words, if you are a tea lover, try to keep a healthy balance between caffeine and decaf types of tea. If you are a coffee lover and you just can't limit the number of cups you have a day, why not try decaf (if you can). If you love both coffee and tea, be especially careful not to overdo it. I mean there is such a thing as too much of a good thing.
In honour of my love for coffee, today I'm wearing two colours: blue and brown. The brown is obviously the colour of coffee while blue is a colour of my take away coffee cup. I actually quite liked this almost completely monochrome styling. Had it hadn't been for the white on my leggings, this outfit would be all brown and blue. Speaking of the leggings...Do you know that feeling when you rediscover some clothing item in your closet? For instance, I had this pair of leggings for ages, but somehow I forgot about them. Now that I rediscovered them, I'm looking forward to wearing them again. I know animal print can be tricky to style, but if you ask me, it's worth the effort.
I mean it's perfectly fine if you don't like or do not want to wear animal print, but if you do like it, don't give it up too easily. Animal print is very eye-catching but it doesn't have to be tacky. Why not try wearing animal print accessories, such as animal print bags or shoes? I usually treat leggings as accessories, not as individual clothing items, meaning that I don't wear them on their own. I do, however, recall one time I wore these leggings on their own (here). That was more 'walk the dog' look than a proper outfit, though. What is your opinion on this? I think it's alright to wear leggings on their own as long as they're not transparent.
Back to the subject of the post. I think we should be careful with colours when we wear animal print. Not that we need to stick to the basical colours, but we might want to try to keep our other clothing items less colourful. Animal print is noticeable enough on its own, we don't need 100 other colour schemes to clash with it. Unless you're really good at print mixing and you feel it's your thing, you might want to keep it a bit more simple. Keeping jewellerly to a minimum, can be a great idea as well.
Natrag na temu objave. Mislim da trebamo biti oprezni s bojama kada nosimo životinski uzorak. Ne da se moramo držati osnovnih boja, ali možda bi bilo dobro ostatak odjeće učiniti manje šarenim. Životinjski uzorak i sam dovoljno privlači pozornost, nije nam potrebno sto drugih odjevnih komada s kojima bi bio u kontrastu. Osim ako niste jako dobri u mješanju uzoraka i baš to nosite kao svoj stil, bilo bi bolje da se vodite načelom jednostavnosti. Nošenje što manje nakita također može biti dobra ideja.
