As much as I am the biggest fan of investing in classic pieces, I love to spoil myself now and then and follow few trends, that will most likely become a statement or return in future season – fashion is revolving! Upcoming seasons will bring a lot of refreshed trends from past, so it’s worth to look around the local thrift shops and search on the apps like Depop or Vinted.

Accessories – I call them the soul of the look. Even if you serve a simple white shirt and denim look, a good pair of shoes, sunglasses and bag (I wrote about them in 7 it bags for 2020) and, theoretically ‘boring’ look can become really interesting.

This time is all about my favourite, yet neglected, when it comes to my investments – shoes!

espadrilles

I remember, back in 2015 when I actually started to be more aware of fashion, espadrilles were huge! And everywhere! They definitely have their biggest return moment yet, but I’m pretty sure they will be coming back every season!

Style tip! Get inspired by 80’s and style them with oversized linen white dresses or bell bottoms.

mary janes

Inspired by unisex shoes for children from early XX century years, Mary Janes became an inspiration for the biggest fashion houses like Gucci, Chanel or Miu Miu. This time in sexy, high heeled version.

Style tip! Although they may be too heavy for flowery maxi dresses, they will work amazing with miniskirts, LBDs and marine shorts!

loafers

Okay, they’re classics, and if you own a pair of classic loafers, it may be the time to think about more chicky version of them! Also, check my Sienna Millers’ Style close up for major loafer inspo!

Style tip! Classic loafers will look amazing with oversized pieces like blazers or puffy dresses!

PCV sandals

‘Barely there’ sandals updated to invisible ones! I was quite sceptical when it came to them at first, maybe because all the sweaty boots stories I’ve heard of (or seen!!!), but using PCV in sandals is quite smart move – they’re definately more breathable than ankle boots.

Style tip! They will look amazing, complementing both coctail party and ripped jeans and t-shirt coffee date looks!

After the time of oversized, shoulder padded, boyfriend, ex-boyfriend and dad blazers, the time came! Cropped blazer made it’s way into 2020 with a lot of positive noise. It hits the waist just in the right place, subtely accenting it and it looks extra-cute with co-ord bottoms.

I want to start this year with concious choices. Looking at the shocking events, that accented 2020, I am definately opening my eyes for building my wardrobe basic but as well statement pieces more sustainable, timeless way.

Donations for Australia

Yes, it’s not a piece of clothing. But it’s better for the environment and for poor animals and people looking for shelter. Australia is struggling with 70m high fires, since the end of 2019 and the devastation is just heart-breaking. 1/3 of koala population is gone so far. Over 500 000 000 (!!!) animals are dead. Government tried to hide the fact for over 3 months, while a joke prime minister enjoyed his holiday in Hawaii. The budget for fighting the fires was also cut. People are told to stay on their backyards and fight for their lives. Every amount of money can help. I put saving for my dream pair of shoes aside. Future is more important to me. I choose 2 organizations, WIRES and NSW Rural Fire Service and donated already, but I will continue, until Australia and it’s creatures are safe and rebuilt.

I’m all about skin care, especially after starting to notice results lately. And I’m all about crystals as well and this face massager is encrusted with 24 stones containing tourmaline quartz, known for its purifying properties but also absorbing the electromagnetic radiation!

BEVZA Neoprene sock boots

BEVZA is an independent Ukrainian brand which I admire for a long time. Their designs are timeless, classic but meaningful at the same time, which is hard to compromise for some. These sock boots will work with every outfit (even track suit if you’re stubborn) and are a definite investment for seasons, if not for life.
