Sporty heels from Mini Prix

Although Harper's Bazaar said sporty heels are totally out, I say the hell with it ( it only shows very expensive stuff anyway) and I'm gonna show you how to create 3 different outfits with them. As I told you before I'm a little maniac when I find clothes I like and I end up buying the same item in 2 different colours/prints. This also happened with some sporty heels I found at Mini Prix a couple of weeks ago, so I bought them in brown and also grey.
Desi Harper's Bazaar a declarat ca pantofii sport cu toc nu mai sunt "in trend", m-am decis sa nu ma intereseze (oricum revista prezinta numai chestii ft scumpe) si am creat 3 tinute cu ei. Cum v-am spus si mai demult, nu am masura atunci cand gasesc o haina care-mi place si ajung sa o cumpar in 2 exemplare in culori/printuri diferite. Asta mi s-a intamplat si acum cateva saptamani, cand am gasit botinele astea sport, asadar le-am cumparat si pe maro, si pe gri.
The first outfit is an office one, in neutral colours. I started with the dress I wore here, some brown tights(100 DEN cause it's cold outside), a beige trench and a brown collar. 
Prima tinuta e una oarecum office, in culori neutre. Am inceput cu o rochie pe care am mai purtat-o aici, dresuri mate maro (100 DEN pt ca e cam frigut afara), un trench bej si un guler maro.

I wore the second outfit at the Christmas party, hence the red pants. The white sweater was a gift and I never found a proper occasion to wear it because of it's fluffyness (it looks as if I have sheep fur at my neck and wrists), but on that day I couldn't find a better way to express the warmth and sheer joy of the holidays. It wasn't that cold outside, so I put my leather jacket on and added a touch of chicness (searched it in the dictionary, it's a real word :p) with an animal print beret.
A doua tinuta am purtat-o la petrecerea de Craciun, de-aia am pantaloni de culoare rosie. Puloverul alb l-am primit cadou si pana acum nu am gasit nici o ocazie potrivita sa-l port din cauza ca este ft pufos (parca am blanita de oaie la maneci si la gat), dar in acea zi mi s-a parut cea mai buna metoda sa exprim caldura si bucuria sarbatorilor. Nu a fost ft frig afara, asa ca pe deasupra mi-am luat geaca de piele si am adus o nota chic cu o bereta animal print.

For the last one I mixed both feminine and masculine, creating a playful outfit I can wear at school. I rolled up my boyfriend jeans, so that my boots were seeable, but added a marilyn monroe tee and a fur vest.
La final, am amestecat elemente feminine cu unele masculine, pt un look jucaus, numai bun de mers la facultate. Am suflecat perechea mea preferata de boyfriend jeans, pt ca botinele sa se poata vedea, dar i-am purtat cu un tricou cu marilyn monroe si o vestuta de blana.
(jeans - Miss Sixty; tee - Bershka; fur vest - Promod; cardigan - Reserved)

As you can see, it's pretty easy to mix and match these boots, especially because they have different shades of brown and you can add simpler pieces. I personally prefer to wear brown with either red and off-white/beige, or with dark blue/purple/kaki.
Stay tuned 'cause in my next post I will show you another 3 ways to wear sporty heels, this time the grey ones. 
Dupa cum vedeti, e destul de usor sa compui o tinuta cu aceste botine sport, mai ales pt ca au nuante diferite de maro si poti adauga piese simple. Personal prefer sa combin culoarea maro cu rosu si bej/alb neimaculat :) sau cu albastru/mov/kaki inchis.
Reveniti si maine pe blog, o sa va arat alte 3 combinatii, insa cu botinele gri.

Ruffled socks

You can't really tell in the picture, but my socks have ruffles and that's pretty much the main reason I lifted them up ( nevermind that they were the same colour as the flowers on my skirt, that's a bonus). I'm on a hunt for tights and over-the-knee socks right now, 'cause that's the only way I can wear shorts/skirts in the winter time.

Busy Bee at work

Another random day at work, just fooling around and matching with the flowers on the walls :):) It's so easy to create an office look, you can add a blazer on top of anything you are wearing and you get that more "serious/responsible" loo.

Zebras are cool!

I tried another kind of animal print today, as I'm getting used to seeing leopard everywhere. 
I really love the black&white combination because as simple as it is, you can always find a way to look different, by adding a strong colour like deep blue or even fuchsia. If you are more conservative you can always add that touch of red as I did in the previous post.
Because the heels and the cardi were already too much for one outfit (you can't really tell from the pictures, but the heels are snakeskin), I tempered it down with a grey top and black skirt & tights.

In contrast with nature

I love being in contrast with nature, so when all I can see around me is yellow, red & brown, I choose black&white for my outfit. I started with simple black pants, that are at least 2 sizes bigger than what I normally wear ( I tried them on to be sure they won't fall down if I don't wear a belt). I wanted to create a casual office look, so I continued with an XL printed T-shirt and a long black cardigan ( because you kinda need to cover up your backside when you wear these pants, they don't fit tightly and you look like you don't have a bottom). For the usual pop of color I chose my red wedges, and on top - my studded leather jacket ( it always creates a great contrast with another style such as office)

Goodbye, Fall!

Pictures taken in Campulung, some weeks ago. I so miss fall right now. It shouldn't be a shock winter is here and I should be glad because this weather allows great layering ... still I can't seem to adapt to the cold outside :(
