Back to school, back to basics. With the warm season now behind us, I can’t stop thinking about the cold months that are slowly approaching us. Let me be honest; I am not ready to let go of summer yet. It’s getting super chilly, and I am still clinging on to my short dress and skirts. I’ll be incorporating them into my daily outfits. Most probably paired with chunky sweaters, jeans and leggings underneath to keep me warm.

Denim and basic tops are more like my regular uniform and most specifically now that I am a student. It pairs so well with any top or blouse depending on what mood and occasion I am dressing up too. At the moment, I am obsessed with mom jeans.  Do you still remember how popular they were in the 90’s? It reminds me of my mom and how much she liked rocking her jeans with a tucked-in shirt and big belts. Although it is hard for me to pull off the same looks as she used to back in the days, I find myself reaching for these jeans over and over again. I love the effortless cool high-waist style and the fact that they hold and keep everything in place.

Combining these Monki mom jeans with a basic red top is in my opinion, a back to school kind of outfit. Paired with sneakers, it is super comfortable, and instead of letting the top sit on top of my jeans as I normally do, I decided to tuck it in. And just like my mom, I added a belt as an accessory.

How do you ladies pair your mom jeans? Let me know below.

As always, Thank you so much for reading

Happy Friday and Merry Christmas Everyone! It’s no doubt that this is the most special time of the year. I like the festive mood and spirit around the city. The lighting that lights the city up when it gets dark, and the music that plays in almost every corner, making it so cozy. And, everyone including me seems to be in a full Christmas mode. Going crazy in the malls searching for that perfect gift for their loved ones. Speaking of gifts, have you bought and wrapped all the presents?

Despite the effort of preparing for the much awaited day, which is finally here, I have to admit that we all go through some emotions. It can be the sensation and excitement waiting to see our families again, the massive list of gifts that we have to buy, and so many other things. I, myself, tend to go through different phases of emotions.Although I miss my family so much, I am honestly lucky to spend Christmas with Axel and his family. Last year, I had so much pressure trying to find a balance between writing project, studying for an exam, work and making sure that I have everything we needed. I feel organised this year. All the presents are wrapped, and I already made a list to Santa. Hopefully, he will be good to me. 😃

If you are going through stress, just keep in mind that: Christmas comes only once in a year. Put all worries behind you, take a deep breath, think of the unique and happy moments you will spend with your family members. Cherish the little things. It’s all that matters.

To those who are travelling for the holidays, I wish you a safe journey.

I hope you get to have the best Christmas with the people you love most, sharing love, happiness, and laughter with each other. Be the light to everyone around you including a stranger. 

Sending you all my love.❤

Merry Christmas from Axel and me to you and your family! 🎄🎁

Taking a moment to talk about my obsession with the knee high boots which started last year when I got my first flat pair. I decided to look a heeled pair, and it took months before I got this gorgeous pair of suede boots from recent sales at Nelly. They fit perfectly well, and I am completely in love and hooked with them. I like that they are super warm; they elongate my legs making me look taller than I actually am.. I’m already looking for different ways to style these knee high boots, as I have only worn them once with this delicate lace dress that I wore in summer on this post here. It was a chilly winter day so, I had to layer up to keep me warm.

On a different note, I am so happy that I passed my management accounting exam. I honestly didn’t think I will pass this paper. In fact, I was prepared to re-sit it again in January. When I saw the results, I screamed so loud my neighbors probably heard me. I couldn’t stop dancing all over the house like a crazy mad woman. It’s  a great feeling that I couldn’t hide.

Are you ready for Christmas? I’m soon handing in my semester project, and I can’t wait to get started with DIY presents for Christmas.

As always Thank you so much for reading.  Stay well and talk to you super soon, again.

Love ❤️

Summer has come to an end, and we are officially at the beginning of the fall season. The weather has been pretty amazing these last couple of days and one of the many reasons why I am not ready to let go of my summer staples.  During this past season, I wore this Denim mini skirt very often as you can see it here and here and on this Instagram post. I paired it with a cami top and completed the whole look with the metallic slip-on sandals. Such an easy and quick outfit for the weekend. I am excited and can’t wait to pair it with an oversized sweater, ankle boot and throw on a long jacket which will be a perfect and appropriate combination for the cold season.

Thank you so much for reading and wish you a super relaxing weekend.
