STRIPED ITEMS IN MY CLOSET I OFTEN REACH FOR

A key to shopping one's closet perhaps lies is knowing one closet. Think about it this way. If you love a certain clothing item, it might be because you have already learned how to wear it. Today I want to talk a bit about striped items in my closet. These are some of the pieces that I often reach for in spring and summer, so I thought it would be good to do some outfit proposals and ideas with stripes. If we often wear something, it might be for two reasons: we really like it & we're tight with time. There is nothing wrong in relying on pieces you love when you're on the go. Similarly, there is nothing wrong with falling in love with a certain clothing item, cut, print or whatever. Stripes have a way of making any outfit feel more spring & summer appropriate, and that might be one reason why I like them.

HOW TO WEAR A DENIM SKIRT (WITH A BLAZER) FOR SPRING?

I often write about shopping one's closet on this little blog of mine. Not only is shopping our closet  a sustainable thing to do, it also helps us to get to know our closet. How can you really know your wardrobe options if you don't style and wear your clothes? The potential of every clothing item increases with a bit of tender love and care (TLC). One of the things I love about shopping one's closet is the opportunity to create stories with our clothing items. When we care about a clothing item, we're more likely to take good care of it and that can help make us more environmentally conscious. Most people could really benefit from learning how to take better care of their clothes, that's for sure. We live in an era of 'wear it then throw it'. This consumerist approach is what makes fashion industry such a horrible polluter. We can all help to change that with our every day choices. Good news is that we can all help it in a variety of ways. From buying vi…

SUMMER IS NEAR, LET'S TALK SWIMSUITS

The weather is being beastly again, all the more reason to daydream about summer vacation. Are you looking forward to the summer? I know it might not seem so (is it raining where you're at as well?), but summer is nearing us. Sooner than we know it, it will be beach time. My last summer was ruined by an operation that went wrong. So, last summer I didn't get a single beach day. Yes, you've read that right. Not a single one. This summer I really want to make up for that. I feel I really need that beach experience. Needless to say, I'm really looking forward to this summer. When it comes to summer fashion, there is one item that I simply love to shop for. Sometimes I don't feel like shopping (with years I learned how to shop my closet), but still there is one important summer item I need to renew every now and then. Yes, today we'll be talking about one summer essential and that is: a swimsuit. If you swim a lot, you'll probably need a new swimsuit for a new…

HOW TO WEAR DRESSES WITH SNEAKERS FOR SPRING & SUMMER?

If there is one outfit that screams spring and summer for me, it's dresses worn with sneakers. Naturally, dresses and sandals is another lovely pairing, but sneakers also have many benefits. From being orthopedic (not all of them but still) to being appropriate for all kind of terrains, there is no denying that sneakers are practical. You can take them anywhere, from a rock beach to a sandy one. You can pair them fun socks or tights for those days it's still not warm enough. Long story short, they do make for a lovely choice in this season. What are your thoughts? Do you like to wear sneakers in spring and summer? My last post was about styling dad sneakers with jeans and a blazer, and today I'll show you some of my favourite sneaker and dress combinations. If you ask me, the answer to the question can I wear dresses with sneakers is - yes, you absolutely can.
