Reinvent yourself.
When you feel like you don’t belong somewhere anymore, when you feel like the people start replacing you, when you feel like there’s nothing left for you here.
Start fresh. Do something you’ve never done. Dare to reinvent yourself.
It’s scary and we often feel like things are only going to get worse. The unknown is terrifying. That feeling you get when you realise you’re replaceable leaves a sour taste in your mouth.
But remember this, this feeling you have now, as hard as it may seem to believe, it will pass. You’ll go to new places and meet awesome people, fall in love with new activities and souls. It will get better, I promise.
Never let yourself down, because people will. They’ll hurt you. Sometimes they’ll mean to, sometimes they don’t even know what you’re doing.
Your happiness is just as important as anyone else’s.
This moment will pass. The pain will pass. The fear will pass.
Time proves you that nothing lasts forever and that things can always get better if you’re willing to make them happen. Take life into your own hands and shape it. Start making decisions for yourself. Be upfront and fearless. Be selfish a bit. You need that in order to survive.
So do it. Choose better. Choose you. Choose happiness.


Now this is by far my favourite outfit at the moment. I like that is so simple to pull together but it has an outstanding look. You’ll be classy, yet extravagant, settled but bold. This is an upgraded version of the white shirt – black on-body skirt.

The reinvented white shirt is from ZARA and it captured my heart from the first moment. I knew it would be a great addition to my closet, especially now, that I’m soon to be a “Fashion Styling and Communication” student. How could I resist it? I like that it’s oversized, and that it reveals the shoulders. It has many details so it’s easy to play with its design. There are so many outfits you can wear it with. Jeans? Business trousers? Black on-body skirt? Loose, floral printed one? Endless choices. The material that is made of has the tendency of getting wrinkled, but it’s something I’m willing to overcome. It’s a must have! Buy it here!

The black skirt is from ZARA as well. I’ve actually worn it in “First impressions” article (click here). What is different this time is that I wore it with the back in the front. Ups. It has a cut in the front and considering the already sophisticated design of the top in the front, I decided I’ll make the back a little bit more interesting. Never be afraid to be bold when composing an outfit. No one has to know the truth. (I’ve told you cause I know you’ll carry this secret to your grave.)

You can never go wrong with a good pair of stilettos. (Benvenuti) The patent-leather shoes give the elegance to the whole image. The heels are high, I won’t lie. Leg killer. But it’s worth it, right?

Accessories tip: keep it simple. You don’t want to look like a Christmas tree, do you? Something settled as a small necklace, a ring and watch will do the job.

Oh, almost forgot, treat yourself and buy a dog! This is one of my dogs, the Caucasian Shepherd one and I find her absolutely adorable. As fierce as she is to strangers, as kind she is to me. Animals will always appreciate your presence and love you unconditionally. Ten minutes with a pet, and I promise your day will get better.
