Daily Wears: A Simple & Black Summer

Aug 19, 2014

This week, I hope to be back to business as usual on the blog. While my wrist & leg aren't doing great... I am learning to manage it a bit better. Definitely no fancy photo editing for me though. This particular health issue is teaching me to be quick and speedy in my work. Not a bad thing as I tend to be a perfectionist. So, it would appear, there is a zen like lesson waiting for me here. Although, the workaholic in me is not impressed. At all!

As for fashion this summer? I've been all about the black. I've worn this dress pretty much every day and remixed it a million ways! For this month, I plan on doing a few more outfit posts, hopefully ones with more colour! ;) And fall!! I'm getting excited. I have plans to dye my hair in the next week or two... and I have a few blog improvements up my sleeve as well. Don't I always?! Haha, yup!

shop the look:

Cardigan: Target (similar)
Dress: H&M (similar & gorgeous)
Cross-Body: Winners
Earrings: Stella & Dot
Shoes: Zara (get em' here)

25 sweet notes:

  1. I hope that your health will improve fast enough... I'm the same like you, perfectionist and workaholic, so taking things slow or doing them as quick as possible can be quite a "task" to deal with, but sometimes we just need to let go a little bit and take care of ourselves.


  2. adore the cardigan! i hope you start to feel better soon! :) be sure to rest up

  3. Such a sweet look! And I So hope you keep feeling better, girly! Hopefully the fall will bring beautiful new changes! :)

  4. Love your simply and chic looks. Aren't neutrals the best? I'm glad to hear you're feeling a bit better. We miss you but of course we all want you to take care of yourself first. :)

    Love the simple black dress! You look fab as always:)

  7. such a perfect look veronika. i love how effortless your style is...you always look so fresh, dewey, and lovely :)

  8. So simple and classic! And I love those shoes! I'm sorry your wrist and leg still aren't doing great, but I love that you're looking at the bright side. I can't imagine living with that. I would be driven crazy, haha!

  9. Oh V, you know how I feel about a good all black ensemble and this one is just perfect. I love the look of the fine slouchy cardigan layered over your black midi dress, especially in combination with those fabulous studded flats - so many textures in one look! And combining textures really is the art of monochrome dressing, I think :) Glad to hear that despite your wrist and leg issues, you're managing to find ways to cope. but still sending healthy thoughts your way!

  10. i always adore your fashion sense and every outfits looked so comfy and easy-going.really enjoying reading your blog here.and hope you will get healthy soon,though i'm not sure what is happening to your health.

  11. what a lovely dress! so simple and stunning. i really really like the length of the dress :) and i'm familiar with that zen lesson from having to be less a perfectionist due to other (health) issues.. it can be so good, and driving me insane at the same time ;)

  12. Bahaha, I know, it's too easy to just wear black and white for me lately - those colors are just effortlessly cool! For example, this dress <3

    Hope your perfectionist isn't going crazy - just gotta get in touch with your zen girl ;)

    Haha, can't wait to see what this week brings from you!
