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.
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.
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.
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. Now I actually prefer the 452 pair to the 530 because they are easier to clean and I feel you can wear them during winter too because of the all leather look.
Quarantine definitely brought some cool outfits in sight, one of them is this amazing combination of blazer and joggers. The ultimate zoom meeting outfit or maybe when you want to be ultra cozy but still presentable. Ahhh, my favourite style. I had this outfit in mind for a while and just had to try to pair this beautiful Everlane blazer with all an white outfit underneath. I am especially fond of the colour combination. Also during quarantine I fell in love with many joggers outfits so I quite enlarged my joggers collection.
This is exciting! I have never reviewed any cosmetics up here but that does not mean I am not into it. On the contrary! I’ve been into makeup for past couple of years, but only started with in depth skincare about a year and a half ago. Since I started doing that my skin improved massively. Apart from a couple of food supplements, I started playing and testing a bunch of serums, creams and techniques from different brands. And currently I am using Estelle and Thild organic beauty.
Before I start using any new skincare I always make sure to check ingredients and consistency of products. Because if I get wrong ones my pores clog reeeeally fast. My skin type? Most part of the year I have combination skin type but in winter I can have really dry and flakey skin. A couple of years ago I was always getting breakouts etc. and since I started to cleanse and take care of my skin properly everything changed. Also I might mention that I have quite sensitive skin.
These are the products that I have been using
Here are a couple of Estelle and Thild products that I have been using. I start with Multi action cleansing gel (click). I find it very gentle, after use my skin is soft and I don’t have the feeling of it strip down my skin of natural oils as some of the cleansers do. Absolutely loving it. Then I use Biocleanse eye makeup remover (click). I use waterproof mascara and to be honest, this one did not get rid of it all. I was hoping it would since it is dual phase but unfortunately it is not oily enough to remove it completely.
The BioTreat Facial Detox Duo (click) was something I was eager to try. I just looove face masks and scrubs. The BioTreat Radiance Micro Polish (scrub) consists of very tiny crystals and I never had a scrub like it. Crystals are really small, I was quite surprised about it. Not quite sure how I feel about it yet but I will get back here after I use it a few more times. Now onto my two favourite products. The BioTreat Detox Mask is so soft and hydrating, my skin felt great after using it. It has cream consistency, feels like it goes right into the skin.
Thirst Relief Serum (click)is the one thing that I fell absolutely in love with. I use it before moisturiser and with this one I finally got that perfect shine on my skin without it being oily. My experiences with similar serums are mostly them sitting on my skin and after half an hour my face getting all oily. I love the feeling of true hydration with Estelle and Thild serum. Also makeup looks so nice after!
My experience with their new cream for cold weather
Ultra Rich Repair Cream (click) is the latest Estelle and Thild product that I tried. During cold months my skin gets super dry and flakey, especially on my nose. Because of that I was looking forward of trying their newest cream. It is quite thick in structure, somehow comparable to the original Nivea cream.
It spreads on the skin fast which is one thing that I love about it. Because of the thicker consistency you can feel it on skin for longer which I love when I am wearing makeup and I am out on cold a lot. But on days without makeup I prefer the cream that absorbs quicker specifically because my pores tend to get clogged fast. Overall I am positively surprised about the Ultra Rich Repair Cream and would recommend it for cold weather months or if your skin is super dry.
Princess Diana was queen of wearing jeans and blazers. And sweatshirts and biker shorts. And dresses. And she did all that flawlessly! And it seems so funny to me that fashion from that time and all princess Diana outfits are on trend at the moment. To be honest that era is my favourite regarding the fashion. Blazers with padded shoulders, highwaisted mom jeans, canvas sneakers, oversized sweatshirts. All that! I found that beautiful Everlane The easy blazer online and it reminded me of one of princess Diana outfits. Scroll down to see it. I just had to recreate the whole look!
