Life in sweats

DSC_8370DSC_8480DSC_8401DSC_8448DSC_8356DSC_8657

Sweatpants are taking over my wardrobe, and I’m loving it. I instagrammed last week that I soon might have more sweatpants than jeans and that could actually be true..

They’re just so comfy, there’s so many good ones out there and all you have to do is throw on a pair of good kicks, a slightly sexy top and you’re good for some instant casual cool. Now I am very much aware of the reputation sweatpants have an that many would not in a million years wear this to work, but luckily I’m my own boss and these sweatpants are so cool that I would wear them any day. I decided to spice them up a little with a very open fishnet top and some leather. Can’t get over contrasts like sexy with sweats, nor will I get enough of sweatpants with leather jackets. Both the trousers and top come from a brand I often wear: Noisy May – of which there is a big selection available at  Sojeans.
I’m off again though, settling into my new office. Thanks for all your sweet messages yesterday!

Feels like summer

Feels like Summer! This weekend has been great, I took a bit of a weekend off again (sorry, no more weekends off right now but believe me when I say I needed it) and enjoyed the sunshine, stayed up until sunrise (not my fault, it was the clock that fooled me) and spent yesterday recovering in the park, eating spareribs and watching animation films. This weather somehow brings out the best in me, especially in terms of my mood (maybe a little less in terms of work but I found a solution for that about which I will tell you more later this week). I don’t even have a Monday Mood today, just because the sun is shining, it’s bare leg weather (yes!) and I’ve got some new shoes on. It’s shoe-week on my instagram this week, so check it out to see lots of shoe candy this week.

But let’s talk what I’m wearing, before me and my good mood start rambling. I ordered a pair of legging shorts last week thinking they’d be good shorts to work out in (I’m not a huge fan of working out in short shorts because I don’t want to pay attention to what I show off unintentionally all the time) but ever since I got them I’ve found many different ways to wear them. Under a skirt or dress, I like the idea. People around me not so much yet, but maybe they just have to get used to it. I think it does add a little extra to this gorgeous silk Baum und Pferdgarten summer dress which I wore here as a skirt but will definitely be wearing as a dress a lot this summer. Also: I have to wear these boots more often, they’re so good with skirts.

Hope you’re all having just as much of a Happy Monday as I am!

Move your Lee

DSC_7376DSC_7257DSC_7907DSC_7683DSC_7632DSC_8079DSC_7034DSC_8052

I’ve told you many times about the joy of a great pair of jeans. It’s the type of bottom I wear most, but don’t own that many of as you would expect, because I’m just so picky when it comes to jeans. The ones I have all have their own benefits, but none of them allowed me to do yoga in. Ok, I wouldn’t do yoga in jeans, but movement is something I haven’t always given much thought of when wearing jeans. Lucky for me, Lee has a campaign called Move Your Lee featuring denim that stretches and allows you to move in any way you want to. I’ve tried them for 2 days now and I must say, I feel flexible! There’s no way tight jeans are holding me back from anything when wearing these, which is exactly what I needed even though I didn’t know it.  I love the tones and washes of this line and am in love with the grey-ish ensemble I’m wearing in picture (numbers). It’s really clear that they know what they’re doing at Lee, but then again, you can’t really be surprised: Lee is celebrating their 125th (!) anniversary this year! This year is all about relaunching classic denim heritage and combining what they’ve been doing for 125 years with current trends and styles. A big congratulations to Lee, and a thank you for making both comfy and cool denim in which I can move every way I want to, right up my street.

See more items and the Move Your Lee campaign here and check how I move in my Lee jeans in this video.

Comfort Zone

lovelybylucy onepiece 1lovelybylucy cosmopolitan onepiecelovelybylucy onepiecelovelybylucy onepiece2

Let’s talk comfort zone. I have a love/hate relationship with it. It’s a bit in my nature (and maybe even human nature) to stay within my comfort zone, especially when I’m busy, tired or not in a happy place. Breaking out of comfort zones can be scary, that’s the part I don’t like about it. However, comfort zones are probably there to break out of, and often good things happen when you break out of your comfort zone (or not, but then you learn from it). I try to keep a balance between being comfortable and breaking out of my comfort zone every now and then. Sometimes it’s just best to give into comfort zones and for instance this week I’ve spent a lot of time at home, in my new onesies in bed with my laptop because I was tired and felt like I had the flu. But even when I don’t feel like that, I have at least one day a week in which I chill, watch series, eat way too much chocolate and wear either sweats or from now one probably one of these super soft and comfy onesies. Messy hair, little make up, my couch and my sheepskin. That and a onesie sometimes is all I need. I can always break out of my comfort zone another day.

Both onesies from OnePiece.

Want your own OnePiece onesie? Fashiolista is now hosting a contest and you can win a comfy and cool camo print onesie! Find the competition here. Good luck!

No Sleeve Chic

There’s something really chic about long sleeveless waistcoats. Now chic may not be the first word you think of when you think of me, but I do like the occasional softness and sophistication of a gorgeous sleeveless trench coat like this. It’s flowy, detailed and has a great shade of salmon which I really like combined with the golden buttons and details.
The latest addition to my sneaker collection dresses its cuteness down a bit. Yes, if you like something a lot, get it in another color as well. Isn’t that a real saying?
I’ve been wearing my low white Air Forces so much lately that I decided to get the mids in black which turned out to be a pretty good choice as I’ve been wearing them for 3 days in a row now. Such a good chunky sneaker to dress down pretty much anything, which I love doing because I love the contrast of these kicks with this lovely sleeveless trench.

Happy Wednesday!
