The city skirt

Sigulda, Latvia
Call me Maddie
Five years have gone by incredibly fast and I can still clearly remember mself when I was writing the first article for my blog, which later on was published on the first of September. I think that the first of September is the “Second 1st of January” since it is also a time for new resolutions, new contemplations and new beginnings. Honestly, I cannot believe it has already been five years since I started this mumbo jumbo crazy adventure which blogging is. Is there anyone out there who has been reading my blog from the beginning, from the first articles? I’d so love to know! In September I will most certainly create a separate blog post in which I’ll reflect on how these 5 years were and what I’ve learnt in them about myself and blogging. I think that during these five years I have grown so much as a person and I do believe that my blog has grown as well. Haha, well, at least I’d love to think so :) During this period I have only taken one pause in 2012 which lasted for couple months, but, all in all, I’ve been a really dedicated blogger and posted from 10-20 blog posts each month. Not a single day goes by when I don’t think about my blog or when my nose is not up in my pc creating yet another blog post. My blog has become such a huge part of my life which actually now falls into routine (the good one, though) because blogging seems as natural to me as brushing my teeth or eating breakfast. I am very intrigued to see what my future development will be and where my blog will be in couple more years. But, meanwhile, let’s virtually raise a glass of sparkling wine & shout cheers!

In today’s article you can spot the newest addition to my wardrobe – a very interesting print midi skirt from the store Zaful. This skirt immediately caught my eye amongst other skirts in the shop because of the beautiful print which reminds me of a coastal city in Italy. So romantic and dreamy… I also quite like the design and the length of skirt which allows me to wear it to work as well. It’s actually interesting to see how office work has influenced the way I look at clothes, because when I am shopping the first thought that comes trough my mind is whether I’ll be able to wear the clothing item to work. I spend the majority (5 days) of the week in office, therefore, it would be silly of me to buy only casual clothes that I can wear on the weekends.

5 gadi ir paskrējuši pilnībā nemanot un vēl joprojām ļoti skaidri atceros to kā 31. augusta vakarā klabināju savu pirmo bloga ierakstu, kuru zīmīgi publicēju 1. septembrī. Jo 1. septembris taču ir kā otrs 1. janvāris – jaunas apņemšanās, jaunas pārdomas, jauns sākums. Goda vārds, nespēju noticēt, ka ir pagājuši jau pieci gadi kopš blogoju. Vai kāds/a no jums ir šeit kopā ar mani no pašiem pirmssākumiem, maniem pirmajiem ierakstiem? To noteikti būtu ļoti interesanti uzzināt! Noteikti šajā bloga dzimšanas dienas mēnesī publicēšu kādu rakstu, kurā atskatīšos uz šiem pieciem gadiem un ko es esmu mācījusies šo gadu laikā. Esmu augusi kā personība un, manuprāt, blogs noteikti ir audzis man līdzi. Šo piecu gadu laikā man ir bijusi tikai viena pauze, ko paņēmu uz pāris mēnešiem 2012. gadā, bet neskaitot to, katru mēnesi esmu publicējusi aptuveni 10-20 ierakstus un tiešām nepaiet ne viena diena, kad nedomāju par blogu vai arī nepačubinos ap to. Pašlaik blogošana ir man kļuvusi par neatņemamu dzīves sastāvdaļu, kuru uztveru jau kā rutīnu (labā nozīmē, piemēram, tāpat kā paēst brokastis, iztīrīt zobus u.tml.). Esmu ļoti ieintriģēta redzēt kāda būs mana turpmākā attīstība un kā attīstīsies arī mans blogs! Bet tikmēr, uzsaucu Tev glāzi dzirkstošā dzēriena un priekā!


Šodienas ierakstā variet redzēt manu jaunāko garderobes papildinājumu – ļoti interesanta raksta svārkus no veikala Zaful. Šie svārki man uzreiz iekrita acīs starp pārējiem svārkiem, kurus aplūkoju šajā internetveikalā ar tā unikālo rakstu, kas man atgādina kādu Itālijas piejūras pilsētiņu. Ļoti patīk svārku piegriezums un garums, sekojoši tos noteikti varēšu arī vilkt uz darbu. Interesanti kā ofisa darbs ir mainījis manu uztveri par apģērbu un pašlaik viens no galvenajiem nosacījumiem kad pērku vai pasūtu drēbes no sadarbības partneriem ir tas vai šo apģērba gabalu varēšu iekļaut arī savā ofisa garderobē. Jo tā kā ofisā pavadām lielāko daļu laiku no nedēļas, tad, protams nav jēgas pirkt drēbes tikai un vienīgi nedēļas nogalēm.
