Checked scarf & black Nike Air Max

As soon as the cold sets in, I prefer to walk around wrapped up in as much layers as possible. I'm particularly happy about wearing my Zara scarf from last Winter. It's a real blanky kind of thing. I even feel somehow protected from the world and all the people around, cause I'm kind of an introvert, to tell you a secret.
I prefer a dry day to a rainy one, don't we all? 'Cause that means I can wear my sneakers. I'm staying true to variations of Nike Air Max models, because I frankly think they're the best thing and quite warm too. Walking on air is literally what it feels like and I can walk so much faster in them (crucial when taking public transport). I got lucky with a new pair, kindly gifted by UK webshop, Mainline Menswear. I actually been wanting a pair for a while, as my previous black pair got some wear and tear already, so the timing couldn't be more right. How fortunate of me to have a size 6, the choice of sneaker models is way bigger if you count the 'men' models. Speaking about choice, the webshop offers some premium brands, so if you're looking for a present for your beau, dad or brother that's a good place to start.

I wanted this particular black pair, as it blends well into my Winter wardrobe, without attracting too much attention. I actually wore them quite a lot to the office, they don't have that 'look at my flashy sneakers' thing going on and that's exactly what I needed. Let's just have a minute to appreciate how great it is to wear sneakers with a dress! Sometimes I slip into a pair of heels at work, but it's nice to know you can walk back home on clouds instead of sore feet.

Wearing: H&M Trend dress, Zara scarf, c/o Nike Air Max sneakers, Asos sunglasses (borrowed from Annebeth).

Halloween 2014

No, I'm not extremely lazy to post my Halloween post just now. It happened so that we celebrated a week later than usual this year, but if it's okay to celebrate Christmas for a whole month, why not enjoy Halloween a bit longer too?!

Third year in a row, I celebrated Halloween at Annebeth's house, I came to love and look forward to this little tradition! My boyfriend joined me for the first time and it was his very first dressed up Halloween ever. I must say that I'm so proud of his costume and hair, as he did it al by himself. He was dressed as Sweeney Todd and I think it turned out damn nice!

I chose to go as Maleficent, she was always an impressive villain and off course Angelina Jolie (HERO) made her even more appealing. I came to the party straight from work and did my make-up on the train. The dude across from me thought I was a fat weirdo for contouring like crazy and I gave him the evil eye. I actually didn't even try on my costume as a whole until the party. Adult life is busy! I won the horns from a fellow blogger Petra (eternal gratitude), I had the top lying around and bought the skirt at a thrift store T2 for 3 euros. I'm so happy with how it turned out as a whole, I'm certainly recycling this look in the future.

We had such a nice time, our group was just a perfect mix and we laughed our asses off. The food was delish, everyone cooked something and the wine was flowing. What else do you need for a good party?

I already look forward to next year and hope we'll keep the tradition going (wink).
Thanks for having us, gurl!

Trying the Khaleesi wig, I kinda dig the platina blond on me!

The theme for the evening was fairy tales, but we broden it out to films and TV-shows too.

Our group for the evening was, from lef to right: Khal Drogo, Daenerys Targaryen, Puss in Boots, a Zombie, Princess Peach, Agent Cooper & The Log Lady (Twin Peaks), Maleficent and Sweeney Todd,

Tell me, did you dress up this year?
