Accessories

       I found it interesting how a set of sparkly jewelry and a clutch can turn the whole outfit look dressy and festive; without these accessories it would be a pretty casual look.

      That's why a couple of years ago I started to pay more attention to the little things like jewelry, bags and scarves. Sometimes, adding just a scarf on a neck makes the whole outfit look different.

       These days I buy accessories whenever  I find something interesting for a reasonable price, even if  I don't need them at the time. Like today I am wearing a set of jewelry from Anthropologie. At first, I thought it was a little bit too much, but now I am wearing this set pretty often for evening time. I think it is a very good statement piece for my outfit. And I am 100% positive that it is not going out of style for a long time.

       Believe it or not, but I had never worn jewelry in Russia, only real gold and silver. But in the US I became a big fan of a different kind of accessories, and I love it! I think it looks modern, interesting and stylish, and you can dress it up or dress down, depending on situation.

Office look

      In the winter time it is always hard to keep my outfits looking interesting. In our area the cold season is much longer than the warm season. Due to that season, we have to work harder during the cold days to come up with new outfits and not to get bored wearing the same cloth every day.  At the end of January I feel like I matched and wore every item in my closet many times, but at the same time I don't want to buy anything new because spring is coming soon. 

      Winter also makes me a little lazy about thinking about what to wear, because most of the time we cover up with coats and jackets. No one would see what is underneath. But I am still trying not to give up, I still want to look professional and interesting at work and after.

      Today I want to show my usual outfit for the office. Nothing special, just different combination of the items you have seen before.

Another item from Olga

      Today I want to show something I would never buy for myself.

      It was another regular box from Olga (my daughter) with items she didn't want to wear anymore. I always go through her cloth before they go into the donation pile, and always find something interesting for me. This time it was a top I am wearing today.

      At first, I thought it was way too much for me - not my style, not age-appropriate for me, not the quality I usually prefer. But again, I was so wrong with all my convictions... It turned out this top has great fit and quality, it is very appropriate for my age and it definitely is my style. I loved how edgy and sharp it looks.

A skirt for every season

     It is the third time that I am wearing this skirt in my blog. Surprisingly I realized that it goes well for every season. First time it was during the summer time in a post Last days of summer, second time - during the fall season Second Chance, and now in a middle of January  I am wearing this skirt again. Isn't unusual?

      The most interesting thing that I feel very comfortable wearing this item in each season. And I think I look very appropriate in it , because it looks right to me with my every outfit. Honestly, I've never had that experience before My wardrobe has always been divided by each season; but not anymore. Now it has an item I can wear the whole year around.

      I love how this skirt looks with a warm, cozy, winter sweater and at the same time I like it with a sleeveless top.

     The only one detail is missing in my today's outfit - thick gray tight. With them my look will be totally complete, polished and trendy. I'll work on it.

One-time-wear sweater

      I couldn't decide what I wanted to wear last Christmas and at the last moment, one day before the holiday, I stopped by at Springfield Mall looking for something new and fresh. I decided to wear something red. I went through a few stores and couldn't find anything interesting with good quality.

     I almost gave up, my last try was Express store. Nothing...,  but in the back of the store, in the sale area, I saw something red. Well, it is not an interesting, special peace (like I was looking for), just a regular sweater, but at least it was red. I bought it and decided that it was going ti be Ok for one-time wear.

     One year later, when I was changing my wardrobe for this winter, I found that sweater and decided to give it a try, to work with it a little bit more, and it turned out as a pretty good office look. I like it! Probably, I will keep for a while.
