Best winter boots for 2021

Every year I am on a mission to find the perfect winter boots that will last for seasons to come. This next shoe brand is one of the hottest brands I have discovered this year. Vamsko is such a breath of fresh air for me! This is one of the reasons I love Instagram, you find so many new brands and people doing amazing things! I always felt that in Slovenia we get offered the same brands on media and in physical stores all the time. So it is good to peek outside this once in a while and get something different.

So what I love about Vamsko is the classic shape of different winter boots and sneakers but at the same time they have a bit of edge to it. Apart from that the quality seems truly good. I have three pairs that I fell in love with- Freja, Maia and SoWhat boot. Maia is the trendiest pair at the moment and it is a must have. SoWhat boots are the most perfect for every day walks with the dog – in my head at least! And then there is Maia boot. I fell in love with it!  My absolute favourite of them all and if you want only one then this is what I would reccommend. 

 

Sizing

One thing I was struggling to find is the info about the shoes being true to size so I am adding my thoughts about that. All boots are actually true to size. I opted for a size larger than usual because I am sometimes in between sizes but it was unnecessary. Since they are winter boots I usually wear thick sock with any boots anyway so it is not a problem for me. Also they don’t look huge as some other boots do.

Use code KATARINA

Yes, Vamsko boots are on a pricier side. But you will have them and wear them for years to come. To make things easier they got me a promo code for you. With code KATARINA you get 20 % off everything (This is not affiliate code). It is valid until 10.1.2021, so hurry up.

How to wear wide leather pants

One of my favourite trends this season are wide leather pants. So after searching for the perfect pair I finally found them on House of CB and they are the most perfect fitting ever. Even the length is amazing for those who are a bit taller. Absolutely love them! My favourite combintion is with long black coat and simple white tee. I would wear this one below with white sneakers and that’s it.

Good molecules skincare. Does it work?

In spring I wrote about my new found love for skincare, tested Estelle and Thild brand and I truly appreciate the positive feedback on it. You can read it HERE if you missed it. So today I have a new review up here about the recently discovered brand Good molecules. I never heard of it before so I was eager to try it. Firstly, because they have an amazing selection of serums (I am quite obsessed with serums) and secondly, the prices. I am a sucker for a good skincare for good price.

The Ordinary, La Roche Posay, Estelle and Thild serums have been a part of my skincare routine for a while. I have added the Good molecules ones about two months ago. I wanted to test them out before I write anything because skin takes a bit before the effects of skincare truly show. What I tested and I am still using are 4 serums – Hyaluronic acid, Discoloration correcting serum, Super peptide serum and Daily brightening serum.

4 serums that are worth trying

Hyaluronic acid serum (click). This one I have been using for more than a year so I have quite a good idea of how my skin should feel after it. The Good molecules Hyaluronic acid is pretty comparable to what I had before (I was using The Ordinary one) and I also want to point out that the price is only 6 dollars. I use it right after cleansing in the evening (sometimes also in the morning) and my skin instantly feels soft and hydrated. I really can’t believe why I have not started using it years ago. My skin usually got flaky no matter what cream I used and since hyaluronic acid this issue has somehow stopped.

Super peptide serum (click) is the one that I had on my list to try sooner or later. I read a lot about the anti ageing effects so it was about time for me to incorporate a bit of it in my daily skin care routine. I use Super peptide serum in the evening and since using it I feel my skin reacted to it pretty well and it feels good. For any long term effect I still need to try it longer so I will keep you updated.

Their Daily brightening serum (click) I use in the morning after cleanse. It also consists of hyaluronic acid so it feels like a hydrator and brightener in one. My skin reacted ok to it but I need to keep using it for some good brightening effect. For now I love it because of the soft and hydrating feeling after use.

The best serum by Good molecules is…

Discoloration correcting serum (click) comes last because it is my ultimate favourite one of them all. Since young age I had a lot of acne on the backside of my arms. Of course I picked them all, duuuh! And over the years this piled up and I ended up with some bad scars and discoloration. I felt and still feel super embarrassed about it but it is what it is. I tried The Ordinary vitamin C cream to get rid of them but it did not work so well – or at all. So I gave the Good molecules Discoloration correcting serum a try. It couldn’t hurt, right?

I started noticing very first effects in the first week of use. It truly helped with fading of the lighter discolorations. Since I had these scars for years I know the deeper ones won’t just disappear overnight so I will keep using the serum and keep you updated. I have been using the serum on scars in combination with daily scrub with cloth under shower. This combination also reduced the appearance of new acne. Freaking love it!

Let me know which Good molecules products you love. I would for sure love to try more of them.

 

I styled French Connection fall/winter clothing

There is no secret that I have been wearing French connection brand for a while now and I am super happy to style their newest fall/winter pieces. They have that perfect combination of trendy and classic style. I love that they never go in full trend mood and that they just stick with their version. I usually prefer French connection basic pieces because you will literally keep them in your closet for seasons to come. Classic closet staples are the best investment. Some of my favourites you can see below.

my H&M haul in october

H&M is having such great pieces in store at the moment. I went to H&M store in BTC, Ljubljana to get some basics for fall and winter. I ended up with best pieces that are so versatile and I can basically match them together. My favourite is definitely the grey jogger set. Top is actually from men section. I always love to take a peek at the men clothing because I want to get oversize clothing to feel ekstra cozy. This men top is actually colour matching the bottoms perfectly. This set and black coat will be my go to look this winter for sureeee.

Parisian style sweater that you need

Another Sézane sweater up here. I have been loving their brand and their clothing so much. They represent the ultimate parisian style to me. They are super cozy and warm, amazing quality. I already review one of their sweater, check it HERE. I also got their basic t-shirt and if you are looking for a great quality basic tee, for sure check them out. Material is 100 % cotton and feels really great on the skin. I have been avoiding those stretchy tees for the past years and I only opt for cotton ones so it is always nice to find a new one that fits my needs. But back to the outfit. I paired the Sézane Léon jumper with my new Amendi jeans. I discovered the brand a while ago and I was super happy to try out some of their clothing. These jeans are on top of my list. Love them! I feel a nice classic pair of jeans is the basic piece of a good parisian style closet.

The most perfect pair of New Balance sneakers

Hi there! Long time no new post up here. Missed me? I have been busy mostly on my Instagram, feel free to follow me here.<3 But to get to todays post… have you also been on the hunt for the most perfect pair of chunky dad sneakers? Well I have. I wanted to get my hands on the iconic New Balance 530 but I had no luck. Or maybe it was luck because I stumbled upon the epic pair New Balance 452. How nice do they look? I love to pair them with sporty outfits, of course with white socks like a true 80 dad/80s sporty girl/ 2020 Instagram girl. You feel me? I am mostly struggling to pair them with some kind of more elegant look because I feel like the black lines on them can feel too much on an outfit. So until I find a better way I will be wearing them like this. I struggled with finding them online at the moment but they sell them in different colours.
