Today’s subject? A classic winter-to-spring transition lightweight layer;  the tried and true trench coat. It is one of the most enduring wardrobe staples that have ever been invented. You can wear it buttoned all the way up as a dress or casually open with your fav jeans. I paired mine with wide-leg culottes and a basic white shirt for a casual spring stroll. To make your outfit even more au courant swap out your skinnies for a slip dress and sneakers.

Today’s talking point is a between-seasons must-have that I wear quite often these days; the oversized chunky knit with a long basic cut and roll neckline.  It is the ideal throw-on-and-go knit that can be worn 24/7.  Plus it is versatile enough to go with everything from blue jeans to silky white trousers.  So, for a relaxed look I paired my Topshop navy knit with AA jeans and red ballerina flats.

The last few months , i was feeling a little dull and things got anchored up to a level without any progress. I realized the reason was lack of inspiration. Brain is like a sponge and it needs food for inspiration. In this case photos are a big source of making the brain stay active. Like these ones.

My everyday make up

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

My everyday makeup is a ” No makeup makeup”. Simple, minimal and quick to do. It is my favourite and my go to make up these days because it’s fresh and highlights my features. This clean look is wearable in any complexion.

Well,  for my foundation I used MAC STUDIO FIX but  you can easily try a BB or a CC cream for a lighter foundation. For my eyes, I applied only the MAC “RETROSPECK eye shadow to lighten up my eyes and my black KORRES eyeliner to define my eyes. I continued with my lashes using Clinique black mascara. For my cheeks, I didn’t use any contour product or bronzer just my favourite blush, which is MAC for once more. (btw I haven’t realised how many MAC products I use. For my lips, I used a taupe-nude lipstick from MAYBELLINE the 725 Tantalizing Taupe that hydrates my lips and it smells like heaven as well.(coconut)
