Is that me with an outfit post? Yes, and I have even almost forgotten how to do it!

So, it felt like being fed after starving for a long time. Like a sip of cold water after a long walk in the desert. Like a breathe of fresh air after being trapped inside for months.

I my case, that resulted in putting on everything I could find in my closet in WHITE! I did not think much of styling rules, or about the dirt outside, or all the people staring at the stupid woman wearing white heat-to-toe!

The outfit turned out to be just what I needed: warm enough for the winter cold weather and light enough for the spring mood. I don't give a damn about "white making me look fat".

I don't give a damn about "white tights being meant for little girls only".

Why would you give a damn about theses meaningless things if that outfit makes you feel like the queen of the world? If it makes you feel like the burden of that long and hard winter is finally off your shoulders? If it makes the world around you look brighter and cleaner? If light colors actually, physically make you feel lighter?!

If I had a chance to change something about this particular outfit, I would have happily thrown these sneakers away and worn some white boots instead. I love boots, and they are actually my favourite winter footwear. I would have also worn a different skirt too. This white lace mini is a genius piece of course, I still consider it to be my personal wardrobe staple, but I got a little bit bored with it. I would have rather worn a full midi skirt here, or even a maxi one!

The one thing I really adore about this outfit is the sweater. It is a recent addition to my wardrobe and it is perfect. I needed a plain white sweater, loose fitting but not too thick ( to be able to wear it under coats), in great quality from a reliable brand. I shopped for it online (as my offline shopping for basic plain clothes has failed miserably), and I knew there is one site I had to go to: J Crew. Whenever I shop there for high-quality basic items, I never fail. As for anything bright, printed or complicated - those never work for me (a bright fuchsia coat made my skin look green and a printed lama sweater bored me to death after just one wear).

Когда вырываешься наконец из клетки, на свободу, когда вдыхаешь наконец глоток свежего воздуха - последнее, о чем думаешь, это всевозможные правила сочетания одежды. Ты просто тупо надеваешь на себя то, чего требует душа, а она требует СВЕТЛОГО.

В общем, надела на себя все, что нашла белого цвета у себя в шкафу.

Своей цели я добилась: получила прекрасный образ - по погоде теплый и по-весеннему легкий. Мне плевать, что "белый цвет полнит", а белые колготки "могут носить только первоклассницы".  Кому нужны все эти правила, если нарушая их, ты сбрасываешь с себя груз уходящей зимы и наконец-то чувствуешь, что весна уже пришла?  Если в белом цвете ты буквально готова начать свою жизнь с чистого, БЕЛОГО, листа? Если в белом цвете мир кажется чище и светлее?

Но если уж разбирать этот образ по полочкам, я бы кое что поменяла! Я бы выкинула белые кроссовки и заменила их на белые сапоги или ботильоны - мою самую любимую зимнюю обувь, которую я все никак не куплю! Белая кружевная мини юбка мне уже надоела до чертиков, поэтому вместо нее я бы надела белую юбку миди или макси, может даже пышную! Зато свитер здесь идеален: его я купила, точно понимая, чего хочу, и не ошиблась. Покупала его, естественно онлайн (т.к. попытка обновить базовые вещи в режиме офф-лайн с треском провалилась), зная, что за простыми добротными вещами нужно ходить на сайт J Crew.
