Today I have a simple autumn styling to share with you.You know that I'm all about shopping my closet, so you won't be surprised to learn that there is nothing new about my outfit.

8 WAYS TO STYLE A PRINTED SKIRT WHILE SHOPPING ONE'S CLOSET

Hello darlings! Today I'll show you eight ways to style a printed ruffled skirt. I bought this skirt a few years ago. I fancy both its pattern and cut. Moreover, I find it really easy to style. I have worn this  parsley print skirt fairly recently for a visit to this place. Therefore, I figured it would be a fine idea to make one of those 'X ways to wear a Y item' posts that you seem to enjoy.

HOW TO STYLE BLACK CORD FLARES FOR AUTUMN? OUTFIT PROPOSAL

Are you wondering what fabrics to reach for this Autumn? Corduroy items are perfect for creating cozy autumn outfits. So, I'm assuming most of you (if not all) have at least one pair of dark (cord) jeans.  How to style black corduroy flare jeans for autumn? Today I'll show you an easy autumnal styling. When in doubt go for a black and white styling, for it always look elegant. Here I paired my dark cord jeans with a white shirt and a white blazer. This classic colour combo allowed me to play with accessories a bit. I made things more interesting by adding statement earrings and a scarf in the mix. I also wore high heeled boots for the extra elongating effect. Alright, I'm quite tall, but this combo makes me look even taller. Flare jeans can be so flattering, especially high rise ones.
THERE IS NOTHING NEW ABOUT THIS OUTFIT: SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES I've finished the Slow Season Fashion Challenge successfully. I didn't purchase anything last summer. Second hand it…

READING UPDATE & NEW BOOK REVIEWS: OCTOBER COUNTRY, WILD LIFE AND DIDO, QUEEN OF CARTHAGE

Time for another reading update. Today I'll review three books: a novel, a collection of stories and a play. The novel Wild Life by Molly Gloss was my first work by this author. October Country is a work by author I was already familiar with. In fact some of you might remember that I have a great fondness for Ray Bradbury. His Fahrenheit 451 is one of my favourite dystopian novels of all times.  So, I was happy I was able to pick up a collection of his short stories. Finally, I read a play by Christopher Marlowe. This is another author I was already familiar with (I did study English language and literature). I enjoyed Marlowe's version of Doctor Faustus myth, so I decided to see what his others works are like. So far, I read one and a half play but I plan to finish them all by the end of the month. I was also rereading Shakespeare a lot lately because that is always a good idea. I do upload most of my reading on goodreads so you can check my reading progress there as well.
