You've got her in your pocket

Skinny Buddha milkmaid braids H&M gray midi skirt Pull&Bear leather jacket

The most important feature I look for in a skirt, and here girls I think you will agree with me, are pockets. Color, shape, length, fabric... etc are only secondary. I think all skirts, or dresses for that matter, should have pockets. OK, maybe you don't fully agree, but think of the last time you tried on a skirt and discovered it had pockets. Didn't that come as a nice surprise, and didn't that skirt instantly gain some extra points on your scale? For me this skirt was love at first sight. I love the fact that the pockets are placed in the front, not on the sides, the midi length is high in my preferences and the neoprene fabric makes it so versatile, it can be dressed up or down easily. Moving on to another subject, my hair is finally long enough for milkmaid braids. I haven't worn it like this in ages. And I think it looks even more interesting now with my lavender tips.

Chill, said the writing on the wall

... and so I did. In case you were wondering why activity over here at Skinny Buddha has slowed down recently, it is because I've been taking some time for myself lately. Between my job and the blog there's barely any time for anything else. So I've been spending a lot of time reading, watching movies, going out with my friends. I've even gone shopping, which surprisingly for a fashionista like me, I haven't done in quite a while. And to my even bigger surprise, I found myself drawn to more basic pieces, like this very simple button down white shirt. In fact, this must be the most minimalist look I've ever displayed on the blog. I like to think that maybe with age comes wisdom, and all the advice about investing in timeless pieces finally makes sense.

Nothing's changed...

Happy New Year!!! It took me a while to get out of vacation mode, but since I started work today I figured I might as well start updating the blog as well. Back to my daily routine. I don't know about you guys, but ever since Christmas I did nothing but eat, sleep, read, watch movies and tv shows and pretty much indulge in all kind of activities for my own pleasure and leisure. I should have greeted you with a brand new outfit, but the above mentioned activities have kept me from taking any new pictures this year, so this old thing will have to do. Mind you, these pictures were taken way before the cold wave hit us. I am still waiting for the ice to thaw before I venture out for some new snapshots.

The best of 2014


It's only natural to become nostalgic now on the eleventh hour. I'm taking a look back at 2014, remembering the moments and experiences that have defined it. It's a fun exercise I like to do each year and documenting my everyday outfits have proven to be beneficial not only for my self esteem (a small dose of narcissism is part of being a fashion blogger) but also for my memory. Ah yes, and also it's a reminder of how my money was spent. Years from now I will take a look at how my style evolved year after year, at fashion trends that have come and gone and I will be able to recall the settings and the moods captured in these pictures. Nobody flicks through photo albums anymore and I am happy to have this repository to share with all of you. 2014 you have been awesome, 2015 bring it on!

Woke up to a winter wonderland

Oh boy, it's good to be on vacation! Now that all the Christmas madness is behind us, it's finally time to relax. I came home yesterday from a short visit in my hometown, where I hung out with my friends, slept for 12 hours straight and woke up to see the first snow of the year. How awesome is that. I put on a cozy knit sweater, boyfriend jeans and a warm jacket and out we went to the park. I must admit the high heels were only for the sake of the pictures, I changed into something more comfortable after that. Others were way ahead of us and had already made a bunch of snowmen, brought their sledges and  enjoyed some good old fashioned snowball fights.

It's been this way since Christmas Day

Skinny Buddha Christmas B.A.D style graphic co-ord set

Hello boys and girls! Have you been good this year? Did Santa bring you all you asked for? I must have been extra nice because Christmas came early this year for me. My dear friend Adriana, who spoils me rotten, created this beautiful custom made co-ord set for me, and I am over the moon excited about it. I know I am bit late to get on the co-ord wagon, but better late than never. It's an easy way to look instantly more put-together, the graphic print is eye catching and it even looks kinda festive now that I think about it. And the best part is I've basically stocked my closet with three outfits in one. Can't wait to mix and match these pieces! Happy Holidays, my dears!
