Hey guys, 

Since summer is right at the corner. I wanted to share with you the look I had on a while ago. I thought, why not make an editorial style lookbook that features the love I currently have for yellow.

In a psychological way, it’s crazy how certain colors can lift or reduce your mood instantly. Like how the sun and its ‘yellow’ are known for lightening the mood.

Yellow comes in different undertones, that means everyone will find a yellow tone that fits any undertone and skin color. Due to my neutral, olive undertone, I can easily pull off yellows in a neutral and sometimes warmer tone. Therefore colder yellow doesn’t look good on my skin color. You can find your undertone if you look at your wrists vein. That means:

  • blue veins – cold undertone
  • blue/green or purple veins – neutral undertone
  • green – warm undertone

I paired my fav pants with a yellow polka dot blouse and comfortable bow tie sandals. By the way, I bought my sandals last year and the tone of the shoes are more on the golden site.

But If you are a person who doesn’t like to work with colors. And, you prefer to just grab neutral or monochromatic colors. Then opt for accessories like sandals or slippers in yellow or gold tones. If you like dainty pieces go with gold jewelry.

Let’s move on to the technical site. We used the good old Sony A6000 as always. We shot with the 50 mm lens which gives a beautiful blurry background and it’s the perfect lens for portraits/fashion shots. In addition, I used Lightroom to play with the color of the images.

I hope you enjoyed the different editing style of the pictures. Read my latest blog post here.

How to style a ditsy floral green midi skirt

This is the floral green midi skirt you need in your wardrobe. Ever since I’ve discovered this green daisy skirt by Rouje, I immediately fell in love with it. But what held me back ordering it, was the price and the availability. After that, I started looking for alternatives and found this affordable skirt on the H&M page which looks even better in my opinion. The delivery of my skirt took a week to arrive. As soon as it came I wore it for the first time to the zoo.

What I like about the skirt are the prints, the lightweight fabric (crepe) and the 5 buttons on the side, that allow me to show a leg.

Unfortunately, the skirt is sold out but I linked you some similar ones.

How to dress the floral green midi skirt 

Ths particular skirt can be easily dressed up or down.

As you can see in my pictures this is a very casual outfit. Because I wore the green skirt with a white basic T-shirt by COS followed by black Birkenstock sandals.

Furthermore, you can pair the midi skirt with simple t-shirts, tank tops in the color: white, beige and black. Opt for shoes like espadrilles, white sneakers, and sandals in white, black, beige. For a dressier look, I would wear nude or gold stilettos.

Finally, accessorize your outfit with a brown cross bag, a trendy Bali bag or a black bucket bag like me. Oh, don’t forget to put your favorite necklace(s) on.

See you in the next post!

Feeling stuck..

Feeling stuck..

Whenever you feel stuck, especially mentally. I think it’s time to travel and explore new places. You don’t have to visit a foreign country to escape from everyday life. You can literally drive by car to the nearest city that you have/haven’t been to. I am very sure you would see its beauty! Also, in every city, you can explore the nature, the exotic plants. In addition, different cafés, good restaurants, and places to just hang out. Don’t forget that every place you plan to visit always has its own personality and attitude. 

We didn’t drive far away and visited a few locations in Germany that are not so far away from Frankfurt. I hope you enjoy the pictures of our little trips.

SHOP THE LOOK: BOYFRIEND SHORTS / RIBBED TOP  / CONVERSE / BAG / NECKLACE

 

Boyfriend shorts are the best piece of clothing if you want to show your legs and feel at the same time comfortable. Due to the length and shape, the shorts tend to look more masculine and therefore allow you a more casual look.

I ordered my Misguided shorts from the Asos website but it is no longer available that is why I linked you a similar one. Also, I choose the shorts in black because I don’t have any in my wardrobe in that color. The pants are versatile and I knew I could get good use out of them. Furthermore, I like how the shorts are cut at the end to provide a used look.

In addition, you can pair the shorts wonderfully with sneakers, flats and heeled sandals if you want to spice your outfit. Personally, I wouldn’t wear boots to the boyfriend shorts because it can give the appearance of ‘short’ legs.

For the top clothes, you can go with anything that your heart desires. You can wear a wrap top that is trendy right now.  A plain T-shirt, ribbed top or even a cozy pullover for the colder days. I kept it basic with a white tee, shoes and a beige cardigan. They also have a good contrast to the black shorts.

I hope you like my outfit and see you in the next post!

A day of gratitude

A day of gratitude

About Jey wearing jeans shorts and basket bag About Jey wearing jeans shorts and basket bag About Jey wearing jeans shorts and basket bagFirst of all, what is gratitude?

Gratitude means being thankful. Also, it helps you see your situation in a different way.

In times of Social Media, we tend to compare our lives to others and forget that we already have everything that we need. We are so caught up wanting what others have that this could possibly lead to dissatisfaction and even to unhappiness. Sometimes, I am guilty of comparing myself too.

And to be honest, anybody can practice gratefulness. The fact that you wake up every day and experience life is a reason to be thankful! Also, I am very sure that you have people who love you which is the most important thing in life.

Being healthy is another reason to be grateful because once we fall sick, we then wish to recover as soon as possible and tend to forget how good life was before the sickness.

Now, I want to show you the way I practice and stop comparing myself.

Why you should be grateful 

  • Healthy habit – a positive mind is a healthy mind
  • It grounds you – even successful people need it
  • Can prevent you from depression 
  • You focus on the things you have
  • Because the most of us have a roof over our head
  • You let go of things that you currently don’t have in life because in the future you could have it if you really want and work for it.
  • Reconnects you with family
  • You have a positive outlook on life
  • Keeps you motivated because you have something to ‘fight‘ for

How I practice gratitude / How you can practice gratitude

  • Whenever I feel down, I just write all the things down that I have. Like for example my family, friends, being healthy and much more.  
  • I help and give people compliments. Because it makes me feel content and people feel valued.
  • Try to write things down in a journal that you have in life like family, friends, people who helped you or even compliments from a stranger
  • Try to eat healthily and do sports so that your body can stay in a good condition  

How to stop comparing yourself to others

  • Detach yourself from anything that could make you unhappy like: Social Media, friends, Family who always put you down or give you the impression that you aren’t good enough.
  • Instead of looking at what others do and feeling bad. Try to change that energy into building the dream life you’ve always wanted.
  • Finally, remember people only share the highlights of their life.

To put it in a nutshell, we’re unfortunately capable of comparing our lives to ‘dream lives‘ BUT we are also capable of enjoying the things we have if we practice gratitude daily and change the view of a situation.
