Today’s inspiration. Blue and green

It is spring and to my greatest fascinations our streets are getting filled with bright colours and the most crazy colour combinations. People seem to come out of winter hibernation with a major colour deficiency so they are not afraid to ditch blacks and grays for the brights!!! ¬†My latest colour inspiration – blue and green. This combo is so refreshing that I’m trying to wear it almost every day. There are so many shades of blue and green and there are dozens of variations. I’m personally in favor of malachite green and indigo blue (yes, I like bright colours).

Throwback.

Throwback to that amazing time in Shanghai when the temperature was plus 20 and we had so many options for dressing up and looking nice. Though December has been good to us, it is officially winter and staying warm became more important than looking nice.

So …. back at that time, during one relaxing weekend, I “walked” one of my favourite skirts. It is one of those items that can make the whole outfit. I bought the fabric on taobao (after falling in love with it MADLY) and my friend made a skirt for me according to my sketch. And after the skirt was ready, it rested in my closet for about two years and I almost gave it away at one of the clothing swaps. ¬†Fortunately I didn’t!!! So I finally decided it was a perfect time to give this skirt a try. I completed the outfit with The Beatles T-shirt which is my another taobao find, vintage bag and bracelet, Mango Touch heels and a denim jacket from one of the small shops in Shanghai. I will definitely keep the skirt and play with styling it!

XOXO from Shanghai
