Bye bye 2018

Bye bye 2018


*linked similar things because they’re sold out!

The days before and after Christmas are the busiest for me because I spent much time with family and my partner. Lastly, I have to run a few errands before the year is over.

Let’s summarize 2018 in 3 words: personal growth • creativity • struggle

This year was quite a roller coaster for me because the universe tested me a lot. I was about to give up on my dreams. Plus, I am quite a crybaby due to my water sign (my star sign is cancer if you haven’t known by now – haha). This year taught me to accept that things in life change and sometimes you have to take another direction to make it. Also, I made a promise to myself to be braver in my actions and not to care about other people’s opinions. Furthermore, I want to be more open to new opportunities. Thus, I am ready for the dark unknown paths of life. I am also emotionally and physically stronger because I am trying to leave my anxiety behind. My biggest weakness is overthinking and perfectionism. Therefore, as I’ve mentioned I want to take more action and ‘think less’. Lastly, I am really glad that I am taking my health more seriously and try to do sports at least twice a week.

Creativity is written big this year. I am improving my photography and my editing skills. I even started to edit short clips for Instagram. Reintroducing traditional art into my hobby was my biggest joy of the year. For me, it’s a form of meditation and therapy. And, I draw and paint as often as I can.

Something to be excited for in 2019

Finally, I will marry my best friend in summer and I will let y’all know where and when. By the way, Jan and I got engaged in beautiful Croatia in October 2017.

Now to the last words… I want to thank my family and friends for everything and I want to thank you for reading and liking my content ❤️ , it means a lot to me. Now, I am more confident in the things that I do as failure makes you stronger. All in all, I am satisfied with 2018 and I am so ready for the next lessons of 2019!

Maybe, you’ve noticed that I am not much of a haul hoarder and like to style the things I already have. Furthermore, I like to shop for things I need in my wardrobe and sometimes for trendy stuff. But this time I wanted to share with you my black blazer with animal prints that has been in my closet for many years. It is actually a gift from my mother. I have it since I was a kiddo and it is not a joke ;-)! Before that, I used to hate it due to the animal print and the overall shape. And now I am appreciating it.

This blazer is something I would wear to festivities like a fancy Christmas dinner. The collar of the jacket and the buttons feature the animal print, also it is of mid-length. Plus, it has its matching dress which has the same prints. By the way, I don’t know the brand of this blazer but the quality feels really good and it held up all these years. Unfortunately, I only linked 2 blazers that look quite similar like the one I have on.

Furthermore, I styled a pair of ankle cut blue jeans with the vintage piece which goes wonderfully well together. This outfit can be worn with white pumps or if you prefer the more edgy look you can style it with black combat boots. 

Do you have vintage pieces in your wardrobe that you see in a new way?

Happy Wednesday peeps!

It’s been a minute and I have to admit that I’ve been lacking in inspiration. Even the most genius people lack creative motivation sometimes. That’s why I don’t want to be so hard on myself. Plus, I have been putting my energy on different things like building a small sustainable business, drawing and spending time with my loved ones. I also think that if you do something completely different it can help you gain your creativity back! Okay, enough with the long introduction!!

On Saturday we drove to our favorite city Frankfurt. We ran a few errands and visited a new spot to grab a cup of coffee. The coffee at Wacker’s Kaffee shop was very good – much better than Starbucks! Moreover, I didn’t even know that it was a very well known Café in Frankfurt.

After that, we had dinner at a Japanese restaurant. Where we ordered kimchi, miso soup, fried rice and much more. I highly recommend you to check MoschMosch if you haven’t done it already. ?

I decided to go with a not so new outfit which is from last year but I haven’t paired the pieces together.

I like to infuse colors like red, orange and yellow to bring some warmth into an outfit. Therefore, I opted for a mustard colored thick jumper. I think I won’t ever get rid of this jumper because it goes with everything in my opinion. I can see myself wearing it over a midi/maxi dress/skirt in black. Also, it can be worn with skinny high waisted jeans in blue and black or tucked in some comfy mom jeans.

As you can see, I wore my checked pants over black tights to keep my body warm. The checked print was very popular last year and I am very glad that it is still trendy at the moment. This vintage print/pattern will stay with us for a long time. So keep your checked prints :-)! Lastly, I completed the whole look with my black Chelsea boots which you have seen so many times.

My safe canvas

My safe canvas

Jey in winter fashion Jey in winter fashionJey in winter fashion


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

Jey in winter fashion

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

Jey in winter fashion

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

Jey in winter fashionThe blue jeans is a must-have for me and I think for everybody on this earth – haha. 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

Jey in winter fashion

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

oNecklace Disc Name 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.

Guys, now it’s your turn – what are your safe canvas?
