For a change, I will not write about my outfit today. For a long time I want to write about the pros and cons of blogging. Not sure if you have read my post Nomination for the Liebster Award. One of the questions that I had to answer were what’s my favorite and least favorite part about blogging? Definitely my favorite part is connecting with other blogger out there, shearing the fashion tips and everyday life stories. I met so many great bloggers, and I truly hope one day I will meet them in person over a bottle of wine and share our stories.
For least favorite part of blogging, I don’t like the picture blogs in general send to other young ladies there. You don’t have to wear high fashion brand clothes to be fashionable and have style. This why I didn’t have the courage to start blogging in the first place, even I followed some of my favorite bloggers for 5 years. I was thinking if I am good enough, will I have something to offer and is someone going to judge me if I wear thrifted finds. So let me tell you if you have the same doubts: YES, YOU ARE ENOUGH. NO ONE JUDGE YOU. ONLY YOU CAN JUDGE YOURSELF.

Remember that fashion DOES NOT have anything to do with BRAND, style is something you’re born with and you have to love it.
Let me know what are your pros and cons when it comes to blogging.

Perfect pair of boyfriend jeans!

People who knows me well, know that I never and I mean never was pants gal, no to trousers and especially no to jeans. Why you ask? -I can tell you immediately 10 reasons why, from they never fit quite right to they’re never the right length.

Let me now fast-forward to the present, and just go through my previous post and you will find already 3 post with me wearing pants. I have found perfect pair flattering to my body and from then on, they are constantly on repeat.

If someone would tell me few years back that I would wear so much of jeans, I would definitely say they were crazy and have some snarky comment: who in crazy mind would give so much money for jeans and especially RIPPED one?  Yeah, don’t say it twice, I know :)

After I found these great boyfriend jeans in H&M, I wear them on casual Fridays at work, weekends, date nights, just everywhere.
Boyfriend jeans are easily one of favorite trends to have emerged in the last few years. Easy to wear and so chic when styled with the right pieces and accessories.

Have you got your boyfriend jeans, yet?

Dress Code

livingoncloud02 livingoncloude01 livingoncloude03 livingoncloude04 livingoncloude05 livingoncloude06 livingoncloude07

We have quite strict dress code in our company. From one side, I am loving it, cause it makes me dress up every day, and from another hand it is quite challenging not to dress every day something black. Don’t get me wrong, I love black. Not love, I adore black clothes.

Just because of my crazy obsession, I  made myself a mental note, not to wear ALL black to work. Of course I don’t stick to it always, because when is rainy outside, my brain doesn’t work on 100%(like it ever does :)),  and I take first black dress in my closet. (how much black dresses girl should have? ). If your answer is infinite, you are on the right place :)

Let’s get back to this red dress. I bought it last year in M&S, and from then it is on repeat. You can’t see it on photos above, but this dress has on both sides zippers,  and back side is little longer then front. This makes it so transitional, as I can easily change it from work to date night look with just adding leather jacket, which I wear most of the time.
Living on Cloud 9 with this outfit is one step away of being featured on  People Magazine. You can read more about it HERE.

Tell me, does your company have dress code? If yes, do you find it challenging?

Peplum Magic

livingoncloude07 livingoncloude06  livingoncloude05 livingoncloud02 livingoncloud01 livingoncloud10 livingoncloude09 livingoncloude08

I have been always afraid of peplum. Peplum dresses, tops. Not quite sure why. Probably I was thinking that it fits to particular body type, and that for some reason in not complementary to mine, because my upper body is bigger than my lower body. But than just for fun I tried this peplum top and I was so positively surprised that, it doesn’t just fits really perfectly but it also seems like minimizing top. I know I know, it is all in my head :)

It truly emphasize curves and gives you a that slimming affect, and at the same time gives illusion of curves to those without.  If this is not magic, I don’t know what is :)

What I always liked about peplum tops is variety of styles that you can wear it with. Throw it on for work with pencil skirt and pumps , or wear it for a date night out with jeans and essential statement necklaces or earrings.

So ladies, embrace the peplum, don’t fear it.

Autumn inspiration

If there is one item that you should have in your wardrobe this fall it is camel coat.  THEY ARE BACK people and I can’t be more happier.

For few months now I was on the hunt for great camel coat for myself. Pinterest is always great place to find an inspiration. Below are just few of my favorite finds. What I love most about these coats is that they are truly timeless wardrobe essential, and going with all styles. They can be easily transferred from casual day look with boyfriend jeans to business look.

Every woman should own one of these coats in their closet, don’t you agree?
