Bermudas over 40

New denim bermuda and new haircut. I'm officially going back to the natural grey color of my hair.

I'm still in the process of simplifying my style and I'm sort of done with experimenting with my style.
 I've done that the years before. I now yearn for elegance and simplicity. 
Bermudas are a new style for me, very practical and I hope age appropriate.
Linking up with Visible Monday

Wear with pride

     All jewellery you see is hand made by me and I wear them with pride. Another thing I can say about this outfit is how nicely grey and yellow go together.

Ideal shirt

I could wear this shirt everyday and never get tired of the possibilities and the instant style it brings!

Modern strippes

I fell in love with this tank top a while ago and bought it for just 1 euro! I wear a lot of tank tops in the summer as it gets terribly warm and occassionally terribly hot. This one has all colors of the rainbow which makes it so easy to combine.

Classic strippes

Recently, it's all about using what I have in my closet as a source of inspiration. I no longer spend time on the net to get inspired and pull looks together. I mostly care about what I have and how to make the most and best use. And although I don't have a large wardrobe ( downsized a lot) I still own enough to be able to put together numerous outfits. Frankly, more than I have occassions to wear.

Ps  I'm into making my own jewellery at the moment, so I made supplies on beads in my favourite colors to keep me creatively busy.

Tunics are cool

An inspired look , I love everything about it! Loose top and tight bottoms are so forgiving for the mature figure. Be on diet for ever, also helps!
Tunic from M&S and colored pants from ZARA


Olive green

I love to go monochromatic from time to time in other colors than black. Olive green is a new addition for my wardrobe but has potential and can be used as a basic. Other than that this outfit is a bit on the " I have to use as many of the clothes I have as possible in one outfit"side.

White to go

I was for decades a fan of black color. Although I adore colors I was a fan of black versus white. There is a huge amount of sophistication and practicality to black that is difficult to find in other colors. However, over the last year this has changed and I'm becoming a huge fun of white as well. It's just as sophisticated as black and practical,too if you have a number of white pieces and wash them all together in one go.It also helps if you buy multiples because white becomes yellowish quickly.

I noticed that white color lights up my face and makes it look younger and less tired. Plus, it is a great match to graphic patterns like this black and white pattern on the skirt I wear today. 

Basic dress

This black cotton dress is a newest addition to my closet. It's very minimal and absolutely matches all my accessories.                     
 (Yes, I'm so all over the place when it comes to matching my bed covers. Never have I managed a well matchy matchy made bed.)Not that I care much!

In this case accessories happen to be a thrifted scarf which echoes my love for equestrian style and a wooden colorful beads bracelet I also thrifted for 0,50cents but I know retails something between 16-20 euro. I have found that this kind of elastic bracelets get the most wear from me as they are very practical and don't get in the way when I'm busy.

Keep trying

There comes a time in life when simple is the goal.

                                    Me and my camera and the bedroom            mirror are enough

       I can even be creative ( baby steps)

                                      So much to think about.....

Me slimmer -3 kilos less in 3 weeks-, I feel better but eating is less fun

                                                               Shoes creative!

In two minds

I really missed blogging my outfits. I will try and keep it very simple this time. I have found a place in our bedroom for a tripod with the camera permanently on. I aspire to just snap a few photos in front of my closet just  before I go out. I plan to post once everyweek. My goal is to be persistent and spend as less time as possible so that my blogging will not interfere so much with all my other activities.

Outfit details- Leather skirt- Primark short dress worn as top-thrifted  Only short cardigan- st Oliver shoes- leather bag( only one I carry)

Outfit details-Zara pants- oxford shirt Anna riska- cotton cardigan Massimo Dutti-boots Alpe

Outfit details-Pants Zara-olive top with lace detail Anna Riska-sawl worn as scarf is crocheted by me- lace detail tights from Calzedonia

Thrifted sweater and push up calzedonia collant (great stuff)

 But then I changed my mind and I want to try to photograph myself in front of the mirror. Never have I tried this technique but I sort of like!

I need to make the room more presentable of course and play around with the settings but other than that I like the end result.
Tshirt by Zara / pants by Calzedonia and vest is crochet by me  / scarf is by M&S
Ps Son is working with me!!!
I hope this coming weekend to sort things out and start regular blogging again. Do you by any chance have a preference in the way I should take the photos? If yes I would love to here your opinion.

4 outfits, some shoes and accessories

It's been a while, I know. I hold my self accountable just because I promised my self to post almost everyday and the life got in the way sperkled with bits of procastrination. 
On the other hand I've been into some interesting projects. I discovered( I don't remember any more how a great anti consumerism blog that I've been sort of studying since then. It's called not buying anything.
And as far as my creative life I'm into refashioning lately which means I get thrifted pieces and try to make new garments out of them. I've only refashioned a sweater so far and I will photograph soon.
So, here is what I wore last week. It's a mix of old, new,bought retail or thrifted pieces.

The outfits

The accessories 


The shoes

 Happy rest of week everyone!
