May Favorites! Fashion & Makeup items

Hello Loves!

This Monday I wanted to share with you my favorites of the past month. My most worn items of clothing and two holy grails of makeup.

May has been a very busy month for me so everyday I was going for something comfortable to wear and very minimal makeup. I just wanted to take a shower, put my hair up, make my face acceptable looking (for me) and just throw on something and be good to go. Past month I wasn’t really in the mood to think about my outfit as I used to spend on it quite a lot of time. Those 5 items helped me to achieve that laid back, sporty but still chick and girly look with no effort at all. And here they are!

My Topshop Denim Jacket was making my every outfit so simple and stylish in the same time. It doesn’t get boring and you could pair it with almost everything! I usually wore it with black leggings, simple t-shirt, my white converse and gold hoop earings.

White converse I wore not just in May but almost everyday since it became a little warmer in Warsaw. They fit perfectly with every outfit through skirts and dresses to pants, leggings and fancy suits. They give that great pop of crisp white and make an outfit looking like you put some effort in picking it.

Brandy Melville pink suede bag it’s the cutest thing ever. Fits a lot of stuff, definitely more than you’d think, and it’s super soft. As the converse shoes it effortlessly brightens up any outfit.

Nars blush in OrgasmClassic, gorgeous coral – pink shade with golden shimmer. What else do you need? Honestly, in May I just used some bb cream and this blush. It’s all you need for that natural, flushed, glowy look. It also stays on for a very long time.

Granier BB cream in shade Extra light. Every lightest shade of BB cream I had bought (and I bought quite a lot) was too dark for me. It only matched well when I was slightly tanned. At the middle of the month I was out on a hunt for a good bb cream hoping they made better formulas for my complexion. Sometimes I was getting too oily in my T zone wearing it. I saw Garnier BB cream on a shelf in my drugstore and couldn’t believe it! They made extra light shade! The difference in shade of samples between this one and regular light shade was huge! I also never tried Garnier BB cream, even though all the good reviews I’ve read about it, because I was never a fan of the brand itself. I guess now I’m changed woman, because since I got this bb cream I can’t live without it! It’s a tinny tiny still to dark for me, but you cant’s really see it (I’m just obsessed). I asked people and nobody noticed it doesn’t fit perfectly my complexion. I guess it’s a matter of light. It gives me perfect coverage, I usually don’t go for full and prefer more natural finish. It doesn’t leave me matt but slightly glowing. I just need to touch up my nose with powder once through the day and I’m good (after applying it in the morning I don’t use any powder to set it). It’s perfect for summer and I’m super happy I decided to buy it! Such a good product! Although I’m still dreaming about Garnier will make Super Extra Light shade or that I’ll catch some more of that Sun! 😉

Upgrade your everyday outfit with those few simple items!

Some days I feel like going for that “model off duty” look. Just make everyday outfit to look more stylish and cool. What I’ve noticed is you don’t need expensive designer clothes to achieve that. What you actually need is everything you already have in your closet! A few, or even one, of those accessories will elevate simple outfit in no time! So let’s save some money, bring that inside model of ours out and go look stylish af!

SUNGLASSES

1

Actually I think no commentary is necessary to describe this item. Everyone already knows how easy it’s to put on some shades and instantly feel like a celebrity. They bring more symmetry to our faces, instantly making us look more attractive (from the scientific point of view) and so so stylish! If you ususally use make up, but overslept and need to go out asap sunglusses are a great friend and disgise for those dark circles!

EARRINGS 

Nowadays, I’m obsessed with statement earrings! The bigger the better! I feel like they add a lot of elegance to an outfit and I often like to pair them with a simple tee.

BAGS

3

In my opinion the funkier, more detailed and colorful the better! It can be such a great statement to very simple outfit. That kind of bag puts it together without any effort. Imagine monochromatic outfit (I love dressing all white these days and for spring/summer season my fav set is white culottes and white graphic tee) and a pop of bright colour or interesting pattern on a bag! Just gorgeous!

HEELS

5

It doesn’t matter what you’re wearing, heels will always look good with it. I don’t wear them on daily basis, only when I know I won’t walk a lot that day, but when I do I feel amazing! Feminine, sexy and so powerful! For the ladies like me whose first everyday shoe choice is not a pair of stilettos you can find any other heeled shoes that goes with your outfit even if it’s just a 1,5 inch (3.81 cm) chunky heel. I promise it will change up the game!

I also go for the quality over quantity when it comes to my buying shoes. Having just a few pairs of very nice, classic and comfortable heels (and flats) is surely enough to complete any outfit and you can be sure they will last you for ages!

BOLD LIP

2

Bold lipstick will add that taste of sophistication to any piece of clothing! My go to is red smashbox matte liquid lipstick, but there is so many other lip products to choose from! If you feel a little bit too shy to use one of those brave/”in yo face” colors try dark nudes tones, they’re so classy and super trendy now!

 

I hope this post brings you some inspiration how to upgrade your weekday outfits! Let me know which accessory/product is your favourite to use or try!

OOTD – Easy, classy, comfortable.

Hello Loves!

I wanted to share with you my first OOTD post! Let me know in the comments if you like to see more of those!

It was very sunny, but windy Saturday in Warsaw, Poland. My boyfriend and me met with my dad for lunch just a step from Warsaw National Theatre and Opera building. On weekends I always want to wear something a tiny bit more fancy than every other day when I just don’t have much time to focus on my outfit because I need to run to work or to Academy.

This day I wanted to feel effortless stylish, comfortable and feminine. I styled my outfit around my new skirt from Novem&Knight which I adore and paired it with basic white v-neck t-shirt from Zara and my favourite white converse. I also threw on my shoulders leather jacket (similar here) from Urban Outfiters for an extra layer, because the weather seamed to be unpredictable. For the just a tiny pop of colour I chose my Brandy Melville pastel pink suede bag (similar here) and put on some shades from Forever 21 just to feel fancy (and of course because of the strong sunlight, hehe).

Would you wear that outfit yourself? Let me know! What is that one item which makes you feel fancy but it’s also so effortless to style and wear?
