Get the look: Leighton Meester Fruity Yellow

Get the look: Leighton Meester

I haven't mentioned this before, but I am a huge fan of Gossip Girl. When I was really bored at some point in my life and was looking for new tv series to watch, my friend recommended this to me. At first I thought I would probably not like it. But then I fell in love with it and was excited for each new episode because I was interested in seeing what Blair and Serena would wear next. 
Blair Waldorf who is known as Leighton Meester in reality has great style both on set and off set. She was spotted on the set of Gossip girl in New York in a super bright splash of colors. She paired a yellow ruffle top with a citrus skirt from Stella MecCartney, orange pumps and tote and finished it up with red lipstick. I picked out similar pieces which you can use to get her style but for a fraction of the cost. I love this outfit because it is so bright and sunny.

What do you think of this outfit? Would you try something similar?

Pairing aqua jeans or pairing a coral blazer

Yay! I'm so excited to be doing this post. I got these pair of jeans from Dorothy Perkins a while ago and couldn't wait to pair them with a blazer.  This weekend, hubs and I met with some friends at the race tracks in Mežciems. The place is kind of old, but has a great view, so we did some shooting.

As most of you know, aqua is one of the trendy colors this season. But because this color is really bright, it may be hard to pair. So if you are thinking of how to style aqua jeans, then this post should be very useful. The way I see it, mint looks great when toned down with beige or brown. But if you would like to add some more color to your outfit, you can add some peach, coral or lilac.

For this outfit post, I chose to pair my aqua skinny jeans with a beige top, a coral blazer and brown Jeffrey Campbell Lita look alikes. I think the outfit came out really bright and I loved it. If you like this look, you can vote for me on chictopia.

At the moment, I'm lusting over colored blazers and colored jeans and since its almost summer, I think I will be seeing a more colorful Latvia. Soooo excited!

What do you think about this outfit? Did I pull off color-blocking aqua?

Travel diary {Places}: Hello, Goodbye Stockholm City

Hello lovelies, I hope you all had a great a great weekend and the week has started out fun for you. For those of you who follow me already and might have read my last post, I mentioned I would be away for a while. Well, I'm back and I have got loads of pictures to show you.
Last week I was away on a business trip to Stockholm, Sweden. But I also had some free time to take pictures of the city.
Before I show you the pictures, I would just like to say that the city is absolutely amazing. The old buildings are well maintained and the new building are properly constructed. Certain building and sculptures are working the mint trend and I must say they are doing a pretty fabulous job. Whoever thought mint green, white and red could look so good.
We went to quite a number of places during our free time. We had a late evening walk at the riverside which was quite chilly but we were so inspired by the beauty it took the chill outta our bones. 
We had a detailed view of the old town which included all the souvenir shops (I love to get everyone souvenirs when I travel, so I was trying my hardest not to buy too many things) as well as the Royal Palace which was oh so lovely. We were all wishing we lived there.
Since we were in Stockholm in May, we went for a walk in Kungsträdgården and got the chance to see the beautiful display of cherry blossom. Unfortunate of course that we were there quite late and the pictures didn't come out that good. All in all, it was a really fun and inspiring trip and on saturday we finally had to say fair well.
