Something exciting is happening – my blog is moving

Hello you lovely people. I don’t know how to put this to words really so let’s just blurt it okay? My blog is moving. I am nervous and stressed but at the same time so happy and excited.  I have been working for this change for a long time now and finally all the pieces are coming together. My time with WordPress has come to an end, it offered me a great base for (almost) two years but now I feel like I need change and well, upgrade. Nouw is offering so much better deal than WordPress and in overall I feel like that site is more full of blogs, content and people similar to me.

Nothing else is changing really expect my site address which is nouw.com/ughmango for now. My own domain is still on it’s way. My content will be same as it has been: fashion, beauty and so much more.

I hope you all understand and give a chance for my ‘new’ blog which you can also follow (wink wink), and please note that you don’t have to be a member in now to be able to follow me. I will be following lots of you via e-mail, so no worries you won’t get rid of me.

I guess that is all I wanted to say. Thank you so much for everyone who has been part of my blogging journey here, I hope all the best for you and I hope to see you in my new blog too. Now it’s time for my new adventure! Cheers!

Jasmin

We all have those few pieces in our wardrobe that we just find ourselves reaching towards over and over again. Maybe they are our safe choices when we don’t have any inspiration or maybe they just perfectly represent our style. For me this look fits into both of those boxes. It’s something that I go for when I don’t know what else to wear and at the same time I feel very me in this outfit.

When I think about my style in general I know for sure that I am dress and skirt kinda girl. I mean I do love jeans but dresses and skirts are the ones that I constantly reach for. This grey dress is my newest addition to my wardrobe. I will say with no shame that I have basically lived in it since I bought it. It’s really casual and comfy. And as you all know by now comfy is what I always seek for with my outfits. When I was trying the dress on I already pictured how good it would look with this biker jacket and surprise surprise now they basically walk hand in hand in my wardrobe.

Shop my look: Dress – Mango | Jacket – Zara | Hat – Carlings | Shoes – Timberland

And few more things. This outfit is in general my current go-to look, yes. But also all these pieces individually are something that I find myself wearing all the time. I usually  do match the jacket and dress together but the hat, oh the hat is something that goes with everything. I am not joking, I am obsessed with this hat. It took me forever to find original Brixton hat and now once I found it I can’t stop wearing it. Same goes with these Timberland shoes, I love love love them.

This is what I go for right now but after few months I will probably have something new to wear over and over again. Thank you for reading and I hope you have a chilled easter/weekend!

Do you have a specific go-to piece or outfit in your wardrobe? Let me know.

10×10 outfit challenge | Spring edition

I have seen this challenge going around for a while and it really caught my interest. The idea is to pick ten pieces from your wardrobe and mix them into ten outfits that you use each for one day for ten days. This challenge is such a great way to get creative with your wardrobe and for me it just came as a perfect opportunity to style my clothes in ways that I normally wouldn’t. And also I got to kick my comfort zones ass a little, hah.

So now before get into the challenge here are the ground rules/instructions for you who have never heard of this but you got just as pumped for it as I did:

  1. Pick 10 pieces from your wardrobe (accessorizes etc. are not included, I for example did not include my hat, watch and tights into my ten pieces)
  2. Style those ten items into ten different looks
  3. Use ten days to do it
  4. Have fun and don’t take it too seriously, this is a great chance to get creative!

Obviously rules are made to be broken so don’t take them too seriously just like I didn’t. Now let’s take a look at my ten pieces I chose for this challenge and then, I will introduce the ten outfits I came up with after lots and lots of planning yay!

2 pair of shoes,  3 tops + a cardigan, 2 bottoms and a dress

Outfit 1 and 2

Outfit 3 and 4

Outfit 5 and 6

Outfit 7 and 8

Outfit 9 and 10

 

So there you have my ten outfits. I am pretty happy how they turned out. I could have been more creative and maybe could have tried to get out of my comfort zone more but this was a good start. And I loved doing this whole challenge so look forward to another one once summer comes.

Ps. Let me know which were your favourite looks and clothing combos!!  Also sorry for such a horrible lightning and editing, I tried but the sun just wasn’t on my side. 

xoxo

My 6 winter to spring wardrobe must haves

We are already on the third month of the year which should mean spring knocking on the door but no, at least here where I live temperatures are all over the place. Few weeks ago I was sure that spring would come soon and now all of sudden it feels like I am living in Antarctic. It’s SO cold, about -20°C and I am not even exaggerating. So since the weather can’t be trusted and spring seems to be far away still I thought I could share my current wardrobe must haves. A girl needs some key items in her wardrobe to rescue from the coldness right?

1. Big and cozy scarf

Scarves are a must have during any season basically. I either throw it over shoulders carelessly (at least I am trying okay hah) or just wrap multiple times to fight the coldness. I wouldn’t survive a day in the cold without something to wrap around my neck, it’s just the truth.

2. Ankle boots to the rescue from snow

If I could I would wear sneakers all around the year, but sadly these days just always come when the ground is frozen and there is too much snow. And when these days come ankle boots are the ones I turn to, they are perfect for any weather really. They keep my feet warm when it’s cold and when it rains they protect my lil toes from getting wet. These are the kinda shoes that everyone needs in their wardrobe.

3. The cosiest and warmest sweater

Everyone needs that one sweater that feels like you have your cozy and warm blanket from bed wrapped around you. And by one I mean like at least five obviously, oops. I am a sweater kinda person (but who isn’t). They are the must have of all must haves in my closet during winter and spring too. Because lets just face it – warm sweater goes with any kind of weather. You can wear either light jacket or warm coat with it, you can match a pretty skirt or jeans with it, anything goes.

4. Smart  trousers

In my opinion jeans are overrated. They won’t keep my legs warm when it’s cold and the coziness is nothing compared to trousers. And cold weather is all about coziness right?

5. Brixton hat

This is a trend that has been around for a while now and I am pretty sure that it’s here to stay. It took me forever to get my hands on a brixton styled hat and finally after long search I got one to add in my wardrobe. It has become my go to headwear, I rarely wear beanies anymore since this one warms my head just as much! I can’t wait for the weather to get little more warm so I could style this with everything that I have in mind hehe.

6. The neutral handbag that goes with everything

And last but not least, a handbag. This is one of these things that you do need all year around but I find myself reaching for this specific one more during cold seasons. It’s just the perfect add for the classy look that I seek for. When it’s summer and warm, I am more carefree and backpack kind of girl.

So there you have my six wardrobe must haves during this confusing weather. All these pieces work during winter but also when it gets little warmer, which I can’t wait for. I am sick of all the layers.

What are your current wardrobe must haves?

Happy new year everyone! I can’t believe 2018 is already here. I feel like I didn’t get anything done in 2017 and just waisted the whole year, anyone else? Oh well a new year means new feels, new chances, new dreams and fresh starts. And of course, a lot of new outfit posts, yay. I have no idea where 2018 takes me and my blog but I can say for sure that it will include a lot of fashion. It’s what my heart desires, okay? Heh heh.

Sweater – BrandyMelville // Jeans – Zara // Shoes – Stradivarius // Bag – Cubus

I know I have probably made this very clear in my previous posts but I am going to say it one more time; winter is all about comfy clothes. Who wants to stroll down the streets in clothes that won’t keep you warm? Not me at least. Along with perfectly comfy clothes this outfit is full of pieces that have been stuck in my closet for a long while, waiting to be used.

The reason why I haven’t used these sneakers for almost over a year is simply that I got so fed up with this whole hologram trend, it was literally everywhere. But after giving them a good rest I am back on board with metallics. And what comes to these mom jeans,  as much as I love how comfortable they are I just don’t know if they look good on me. I have seen a lot of people make rocking mom jeans look so easy but when I pull them on, they just don’t look flattering.

But yeah as I said earlier, it’s new year and new chances. Even for the clothes that have been stuck in my closet for too long. Hope you all have a great first week of 2018!

OOTD: Searching for christmas vibes

Happy christmas eve eve everyone! I can’t believe it’s already 23rd of december and before I even get to blink christmas will be over. I have always been christmas person, I love everything about it. The snow, the music, decorating the christmas tree, the christmas lights, buying presents and of course being with my family. This year I haven’t really found the festive spirit no matter how much I have listened to christmas music and how many gingerbread cookies I have baked. I guess you just don’t get fully festive every year then. Can anyone else relate to this or am I some kind of nutcase haha?

Cardigan – Mango // T-shirt – Mango // Jacket – Zara // Scarf – Zara // Jeans – Zara

Now after way too much of rambling let’s get into the outfit shall we? There are some fashion trends that pull most of people towards during christmas time. For me those trends are something shiny/glitterish and velour. Of course I have also been feeling red a lot more than usually during December. I bought both the cardigan and the t-shirt from black friday sales and to be honest if it wasn’t christmas I probably would have left the glitter detailed t-shit to the store. But well, I am so glad I didn’t because who doesn’t need little pinch of Sex and The City statement in their wardrobe?

The cardigan is such a dream come true, it’s big and chunky which is something really necessary during this cold season. And since red is such a color itself already rest of the outfit is full of my beloved black as you can see. Black leather jacket, black ripped jeans and black scarf, yes perfect.

So there you have my very festive (not really I know but let’s pretend okay?) outfit. Little bit something shiny with a pinch of chunky red. I know you will be blown away when I say this but yes, I didn’t find the christmas spirit through this outfit, so shocking I know.

What does street style even mean? A specific style of fashion that is inspired by urban street people or just simply a type of fashion that is personal to you. Who knows. I guess everyone can define it themselves but for me this outfit was screaming street style. Because after all I was wandering around the streets wearing them clothes looking oh so stylish (sarcasm? yes). Haha.

I don’t know why I am so obsessed with red right now but I can’t stop myself from buying new beautiful pieces that have at least a pinch of red in it. Maybe it’s because red is one of the colors during christmas, or maybe I have finally jumped out of my comfort zone which was filled with neutral colors, who knows. The point is: Red all the way and I’m lovin’ it!

Sweater – Zara // Jacket – Zara // Skirt – Zara // Hat – Brixton // Shoes – Adidas 

I first thought that I couldn’t match red with anything else than black & white but look at me trying to add the pinch of color with that blue denim skirt. It’s a little bit too big for me but I loved the pearl details of it too much so I just couldn’t leave it to the store. Now since the cold weather is here and I have huge urge to wear oversized sweaters and everything comfy in general it being slightly too big works just fine. I can sneakily hide all the extra fabric underneath it.

And what comes to black & white, I think my black Brixton hat is a perfect match for red. It’s something that you see on the streets a lot these days and no wonder why as it’s simply just so gorgeous. And to have more black on my outfit I added black tights and a leather jacket. And then last but not least the pinch of white that was necessary: my Adidas sneakers. I will stick to them until there is snow on the ground and my feet will freeze.
