SHOP THE LOOK:

I am a fashion lover and I like to follow certain fashion trends when I know:

  • it is not expensive
  • I can wear it in the next season
  • if I can find an affordable option or a dupe

Sometimes, I fall too fast in love with an item and ignore those 3 points that I’d previously mentioned. But today we want to talk about my ‘safe canvas’.  These are the clothes that I put on my body which makes me feel confident. Or let’s call it the things I often wear.

Grey coat

Right now, the Faux-Fur and animal print coat style is trendy at the moment. But I am sure that next year, you don’t want to see those styles anymore. Therefore, I am sure that my grey coat can be worn every year and it is also a classic staple in my collection. By the way, this coat is by H&M and I adore the cocoon shape of the coat.

Dark sweater

These black knit is by H&M and it has the perfect blend of cotton and acrylic. Which I like because it not too thick and it lets your pits breath. When the weather drops I wear a shirt under my black sweater. Moreover, the most thing I like about this knit is its effortlessness. 🙂

Blue jeans

In addition, I like to pair my outfits with a pair of blue jeans to put some life into my greyish, dark clothes. This is an ankle cut jeans that I wore on that day because it wasn’t so cold. While on the subject, I wrote an older post (here) about my other favorite blue jeans that I wear so often.

Ankle booties

I don’t know how many seasons I have worn these shoes. I think they are from Zara. They have the most comfortable heel height where I can walk the whole day without complaining. Also, the boots are black and easy to pair with any outfit. Lastly, I think an autumn/winter outfit always looks polished with beautiful ankle boots.

My gold necklace

Finally, what is an outfit without the perfect accessories? This custom made name necklace is by Onecklace. I, therefore, recommend that you check out their site. Because they offer personalized gold and silver necklaces, rings, bracelets and so much more. I think I’ve talked about this already but it is crazy how I wasn’t wearing any jewelry. And, now I feel so naked if I don’t put on rings and necklaces.

SHOP THE LOOK: knit // check dress (similar) // shoes // sunglasses // necklace

We shot this simple, transitional outfit a some days ago. And I am one of the few people who doesn’t get rid of their summer clothes in the colder months. This time I was lucky because the weather has been so beautiful lately. It feels really good to put on a cozy knit, a flowy dress and sandals to let the feet breath.

Normally, the autumn season isn’t my favorite time of the year because when I think of that season fashionwise,  I connect it with darker colors like brown, orange, and black. And let’s not forget those heavy and thick materials which I don’t like. Plus, I have to admit that I am not so creative with my styling because I tend to wear a pair of jeans, a cardigan, sneakers and the same coat most of the time. Basic? Right… That’s why I am glad to combine heavy and light clothing for this warm October

Moving on to my outfit, we shot this look when it was quite sunny. Moreover, we went with a green and golden background to demonstrate the beauty of this season. The photos also show how green the leaves are. In addition, I wore a checked midi dress underneath a black light sweater knit. I focused on accessories and wore my statement coin necklace and finished the look off with my thin oval sunglasses for a vintage touch. Finally, I wore my favorite sandals by Dune which I can highly recommend!

Happy first day of October, peeps!

I’ve been spending less time on the internet. The reason for that is the rediscovery of traditional art. My interest in art, especially for watercolor (yes you read right – watercolor) was aroused. I spent the last weeks learning a lot about the different types of watercolors, brushes, and papers. Plus, it was quite interesting to see how much you learn in such a short time if you are obsessed with a topic.  A fun fact – I used to hate using watercolor when I was younger. Now, I am appreciating the beautiful art you can create with the different pigments.

I also began to draw again, do you still remember when I talked about how I wanted to connect to my old self in a blog post? I wrote about being creative (not digital!) again. Moreover, I am happy to find a hobby which will bring the fun back to doing art.

Also, I can’t wait to start putting my theoretic knowledge onto paper. Because I ordered a few watercolor supplies that will arrive soon. Maybe, I’ll share the piece on Instagram if I feel confident enough or if it’s presentable.

Are you guys interested in digital or in traditional art?

See you in the next post!

Hey guys!

I’ve always loved well retouched high-quality portraits and I used to go to a photographer for getting those kind of shots. Since I own a camera and enjoy learning to become better with my editing skills. I therefore wanted to share with you these beauty-portraits that I took and edited by myself. Moreover, I will talk briefly about the products I used on my face, my camera equipment and the software I utilize for these pictures.

MAKE-UP

I rarely wear makeup but when I do, I like to keep it simple and focus on the lips or on the eyes. For both looks I used:

CAMERA EQUIPMENT

For almost all my pictures I shot with my beloved Sony Alpha 6000. It is such a good and simple camera that offers great quality. The lens that was used for these pictures is the Sony 50mm 1.8 lens. I also like the buttery background and good bokeh that it gives you at an aperture of 1.8. What I don’t like is how the lens handles blacks when it is wide open (1.8). But I am happy with it overall.

By the way, I made use of ordinary lights. Nevertheless, I am planning to invest in some studio lights. And I was standing in front of a plain wall and the wall covered in a golden satin fabric.

EDITING SOFTWARE

Finally, when I do heavy editing, I always go for the good old Photoshop. I remove a few skin blemishes and highlight the parts of my face where the light naturally hits. And no, I don’t smooth the skin out or use filters because that is the lazy way of editing skin. I’ve seen a couple of photographers do that and still have the energy to demand a lot of money for the work.

Aside from that, I created the beautiful brownish gold color tones with Lightroom.
