Shirt and sandals from Céline by Phoebe Philo
This shirt dress is already on it’s way to the new owner but I wanted to share this outfit anyway. If I had to wear only one outfit for the rest of my life (I kind of do already) it would be something like this. I love matching shirt dresses with pants, and more than anything – flare pants with flat sandals.

What started from the sock boots -trend, have evolved now to something very desirable, and something that I don’t know how to call them anymore. Lightweight flat shoes that resembles a lot like socks, like we saw also at The Row and also at Jil Sander. Needles to say I have my eyes on both.
I love discovering new brands, but nothing beats having my favorite ones. For the ones I’m always extremely excited to see the new collections, as I can always trust that they will fulfill my inspiration folders for the many seasons ahead, but also that nothing is changing too much. As there was nothing too new at Jil Sander, and that’s why I loved it.

I’ve tried to build a spring moodboard for couple of weeks now, but I’ve felt so disconnected with my thoughts lately. In a good way I mean. I’ve constantly had new ideas for projects I want to start and things I want to create, into the extent that I wasn’t sure anymore where to focus on.
To get my mind together, I took a day off just to visit some of my favorite places in Paris; Galerie Patrick Seguin and the Picasso Museum (The Calder-Picasso -exhibition I wrote about earlier). Over the years I’ve understood the importance of aesthetically satisfying environment to my creativity. I can’t stand mess and clutter, and whenever I feel disconnected, I need to get myself to an environment that calms me.
The same goes for clothes. I might wear the same outfit for a week and I don’t mind. I like to dress up from time to time end get creative with my wardrobe, where I love every single piece I have, but I’m intrigued by the idea of not to start my mornings with a decision of what to wear. Only depending on the weather I might change from all black to all white. Or something in between.
On a side note, do you also think those The Row shoes are a definition of freedom?
Wearing all Céline
I finally got my hands to the Céline SS2013 fur slippers. I was looking for the all black versions in my size for couple years until one day during my lunch break I spotted them at a vintage store window. Even though I love browsing Vestiaire Collective, good old vintage stores tend to have slightly lower prices, plus I hate to buy shoes without trying them on!
Both the shirt dress and sandals will be my uniform during the summer but I’m also quite into the dress/pants combination, so here’s one for the early spring office days.

I’ve been eyeing for Raey’s white oversize jeans, or actually any jeans from the brand for that matter. The white ones seem highly impractical, mainly for the occasions when you are taking an Uber from one place to another and definitely not for my daily life including a bicycle. But that silhouette just attracts me way too much! I would love to pair them with a dark green cashmere sweater.

Shirt from Bazuhaus
Lately I’ve been using non stop this oversize white shirt from an Ukranian brand Bazuhaus. It’s made from deadstock cotton and the fit is just perfect; long enough to wear with yoga leggings and short enough to tuck in to flare pants.

The darker the days got, the lazier I got with dressing up! I wore this outfit maybe every other day in December, because let’s face it, as much as I try to enjoy the winter, I’m trying to make the bare minimum amount of decisions during the days to save some energy. And with a huge winter coat it doesn’t really matter what you wear underneath, right?
