Styling a varsity style jacket

Call me Maddie
Isn't the botanical garden a beautiful and magical place? This is the second time in a year in which I have visited the Salaspils Botanical garden and every time I am there I am admiring the beautiful orangery. The orangery is the perfect place not only for the nature lovers, but also for photo shoots, especially in winter when the temperature outside drops below zero degrees by Celsius, whereas inside the temperature varies from +18 to +25C. Which means that I can finally show some winter outfits without wrapping myself up in million layers of clothing. I looove the cacti in the background as they make the pictures more lively as well as more interesting and just enhance the outfit,
In this outfit you can spot some new items I am wearing and all of them are in courtesy of Lovelywholesale. Firstly, I have to mention these lace up heels as I am totally smitten by them. I ordered them in size 40 (one size bigger than my usual shoe size) and they fit me like a glove. Are those the most comfortable shoes? Probably not, but I do believe that I'll have a great use out of them in the party season and not only. The second item is the college style jacket which is not a typical clothing item for me, because I very rarely wear sporty items, but in a combination with those heels I think it looks even a bit feminine and definitely cool. And the third item is the grey sweater which I honestly liked the least. At first I did really like it, but then I saw the pictures and the way I looked in it and my thoughts slightly changed mainly because the waist detailing doesn't really look flattering.

Vai botāniskais dārzs nav viena skaista un maģiska vieta? Jau otro reizi šī gada laikā apmeklēju Salaspils botānisko dārzu un katru reizi apbrīnoju tā oranžēriju. Oranžērija ir vienkārši ideāli piemērota ne tikai dabas mīļotājiem, bet arī foto sesijām, it sevišķi ziemas laikā, kad ārā ir mīnusi, Oranžērijā iekšpusē temperatūra variē no 18 līdz pat 25 grādiem, tāpēc varu teikt, ka jutos ļoti komfortabli. Man ļoti, ļoti patīk kaktusi fonā, jo, manuprāt, tie atdzīvina bildes un padara tās intersantākas, izceļot tērpu.
Mugurā man ir dažādi jauninājumi manā garderobē un visi ir no internetveikala Lovelywholesale. Kā pirmās es noteikti vēlētos pieminēt šīs siksniņkurpes, jo par tādām sapņojusi biju jau ļoti ilgu laiku. Pasūtīju tās 40. izmērā (vienu izmēru lielākas nekā manu regulāro kurpju izmēru) un tās man der kā uzlietas. Vai tie ir ērtākie apavi? Noteikti nē, bet lieliski noderēs kādiem saviesīgākiem, un ne tikai, pasākumiem. Otrā lieta ir koledžas stila jaka, kas ir nedaudz ārpus manas komforta zonas, jo sportiskā stila tērpus valkāju salīdzinoši reti, bet, manuprāt, kombinācijā ar siksniņkurpēm izskatās sievišķīgi un stilīgi. Savukārt, trešā lieta ir pelēkais džemperītis, kas man no visām lietām laikam patīk vismazāk, jo kaut arī no sākuma man patika kā izskatās, apskatot safotografētās bildes secināju, ka tomēr 100% apmierināta neesmu, jo vēdera vietā džemperim ir auduma savilkumi, kas, manuprāt, īsti neglaimo ķermeņa aprisēm.

    1. It is so challenging to have normal looking photos in winter in which I don't look like I am freezing my ass off! :D Therefore, this surely was a great alternative to that!
      Thank you for your comment Elle!
