End of July. Hot climat touches everyone living in the city. You have scheduled a meeting with your friends, you are looking for a nice classy outfit, but you don’t want to fight at the end of the day  with injured feet, don’t you?:) We – Women always have the same problem. Flat shoes, or heels?

NO MORE SORE FEETpolyvore femi-coach classic city look of summer ootd

This is what do we usually consider: “Heels look the best. Hopefully I will not walk to much, however sandals  are comfortable but… they are flat 🙁 Do they look good?” As long as I live, I think about it every time before I am preparing myself for a meeting. The circumstances like weather and level of tiredness of feet are the factors that may influence how will we feel not only phisically but also mentally. I am sure you were suffering at least one time in your life because of sore feet in heels in hot summer, screaming for relief. I know exactly this feeling so I have found an easy solution. I take additionally one pair of flat shoes with me in similar style of heels, that will still match the outfit. You carry the flats in bag, and change everytime you need it. There are two options.

COMFORTABLE ELEGANCE

Nowadays people say, that fashion has no rules. Everything is trendy. Before I started writing this post, I was thinking about it for a longer time to share my impression with you. My conclusion is following. Classic clothing elements in simple shape or shades never go out of fashion. For sure I will write in future my MUST HAVE’S of closet! I am still in love with outfits in basic shades, where the whole outfit does not consist of more than three colors

1. black- jumpsuit

2. beige- shoes

3. silver- elements of clothes/bag/shoes

I decided to wear light satin airy clothing to feel the summer wind around the body. The jumpsuit and sunglasses are from H&M. Now you can get both of elements on sale directly form H&M Online Store. I have checked it today (27. July) and they are still available in very affordable prize. Becuase of many silver elements – zip on the jumpsuit, silver thick chain of bag (Medium Michael Kors Cynthia) and little stones on flat shoes, I did not add any jewerly to maintain classic, minimalistic look. Down below I leave the link to my NYC vlog in this outfit! Enjoy the summer, Girls!

 

 

Natural look. The easiest ombre technique at home!

Coming back from blond to its darker shade has never been easier. How is it possible?

I was always used to traditional baleyage, actually for many years! Dying hair every month took not only money for hair treatment, but time. Moreover, it required regularity in visiting hairdresser, who dyed them every time for a bit different blondshade, what made me confused and not always satisfied. Hairdye methods has changed a lot in last 3 years. Rarely we can see women with contrast “striped” hairdye of baleyage.

One day I fell in love with ombre and got inspired.

One sunny day I visited haidresser in Europe to try ombre. I was so excited to have super trendy hairdye so that I even took a picture with me of my favourite british model- Rosie Huntington. Unfortunately I came back home with chocolate brown hair with tears in eyes and retoric question”What did I do?!”. No vestige of blond.

So after some time and long hair treatment I desperately came back to platinium blond, because I didn’t trusted any hairdresser knows ombre technique so dying whole hair blond seem to be easier. I know, silly step, but prefered to be blond than brunette.

My hair were a bit destroyed, fortunately not extremly, I invested in Kerastase products, and it worked. Lucky me:) So, what happen later? Hair started to grow in healthy condition, but roots didn’t look good, what meant- you need to dye them again! My problem was- which way to go with my roots. Highlights or full cover.  I purchased Loreal hairdye cream, at the moment I even don’t remeber the exact number od shade. It worked. Roots covered.

The problem started to be more complicated. After two months my hair got yellow undertone. I didn’t like it anymore. I came to idea to learn ombre technique on Youtube and finally get rid of problem with roots. Most of films show how to brighten your hair, but I needed to do it on the contrary. From blond to dark blond. So I purchased ash light ash brown 6A of Loreal Excellence and covered 60 % of my hair. Blond ends I left and smoothed the contrast with a comb.

Down below you can see my very easy and affordable transformation. I still have some yellow undertone, the hairdye cream washed out a bit, but now I can do it on my own, and it is easy like ABC:)
