h&m barbie pink oversized blazer, white shirt, skinny jeans, new look suede loafers, zara baby blue bag, thomas sabo bracelet, ray ban glasses
When I found this Barbie pink blazer in the H&M store its colour was so bright and eyecatching and in an interesting contrast with the slightly oversized masculine fit that I had to try it on. I was almost sure I wouldn't like it on myself, as I usually hate how pink looks with my complexion, but this shade was such a perfect shade of pink, I had to get it. I decided to risk looking too girly and mixed two doll-like pastel colour, baby blue and this bright pink that reminds me of a Barbie car. The bag is another new piece in my closet, only it wasn't an instant buy, as I've been eyeing it for months every time I walked into Zara. I even put it on my spring wishlist. Wish fulfilled! :)
I finally watched Only Lovers Left Alive on a premiere screening through my new internship last Saturday, and I absolutely loved it. The cinematography, the characters' sarcastic wit and the bewitching music creates an incredible cinematic experience, so I can only recommend watching it. I've been listening to the soundtrack on repeat ever since, and I can't wait for the official release of it. Until then, everyone can listen to it on youtube, but I warn you, it will make you go to the movies right away.
I was contacted by ModCloth to take part in their weekly styling challenge, and as I really like the brand I gladly accepted. I created a look on Wanelo (which is a great site to create wishlists and discover what other people like), that includes this weeks featured piece, this beautiful red maxi summer dress.
I tried to create a laidback and comfortable look, which would be perfect for a walk on the beach or a nice sunny picnic. I accessorized the red maxi dress with teal and mint pieces to create an interesting contrast of colours, and added a few gold/brown details that look sophisticated but fun at the same time, like these super-cute earrings and the gorgeous watch.
You can find my Wanelo storyboard and the links for the items here.
Since I started the styling challenge, I've been stuck on ModCloth's webshop, browsing through all the beautiful, feminine and quirky pieces. There are so many cute dresses on there that would be great for summer parties or barbecues. I especially love this one, this one and this one. :) Make sure to check out their swimwear as well for amazing vintage-style bikinis.
For the 3rd edition of Healthy Wednesday, I prepared an another pasta recipe. Lately I had little time to cook complicated meals, but I still try to make them as healthy as possible. This tomato and zucchini spaghetti is quick, easy and really tasty, not to mention the whole wheat pasta makes you feel full for half a day. Click here for all the previous Healthy Wednesday posts.
So Coachella weekend one is over, and festival street style pics have occupied the internet. I chose my favourite looks from the pictures I saw, with my top 3 outfits above. Check out all my favourites, and the best and biggest trends at the festival after the jump.

Last week I went thrifting with my friend, Kata, and we ended up buying 2 kgs of clothes each. I've found the coolest and cheapest pieces, and I'll probably show them all to you in the next couple of weeks. This comfy striped tee was one of my finds and since it's striped, of course I had to have it. It's a basic piece and it's so easy to pair it with almost anything, so it siemed like the comfiest thing to wear to the cinema last saturday, when we went to see Divergent.
The movie was alright, a little slow at times, and a bit too focused on the romance instead of the this huge topic about society that could have been addressed a bit more. Despite all this, it's good entertainment, Shailene Woodley is awesome, Kate Winslet finally plays the bad guy, and Theo James is a treat for the eyes.
It's that time of the year again, Coachella weekend one is happening, and I wish I was there as always. I'm left back in Hungary checking videos and street style pics from the festival, and creating dream outfits I'd love to wear to Coachella. I love that Coachella gives people the possibility to dress up more, because in contrary to 90% of music festivals, you live in a nice hotel with a pool, walk on green grass and go to vip parties (ideally). So these outfits are not the classic festival outfits, but the ones that would be perfect for a fancier festival like Coachella.
The first outfit is more of a classic festival look, as I tried to stick to earth-tones with the cut-out boots and the Acne t-shirt dress. But I also added this bright mint colour, to make the look a bit more popping. A clutch might not be the best decision for a festival, but with a strap, that furry bag would be the perfect statement piece, and it goes well together with the sunnies and the nailpolish.
For the third look I imagined a fun pool-party, and chose the cutest bikinis I've seen in a while. The light-blue scalloped bikinis look great with the printed skorts and the comfy top is there to put on when you want to cover yourself up a bit more. The sandals have tiny heels, so they're still appropriate for a festival, and the bag is the perfect size to fit everything you need in it.
The last look is the most playful and comfortable look I can imagine for a festival. I love the bright colours of the Zara tee, so I tried to pair it with pieces that compliment it, and don't tone it down too much, after all it's a music festival. The oversized tee, the Chanel graffity backpack and the denim dungarees all create a little boyish look, but with details like the colourful metallic slip-ons and the bracelets, it's the perfect bright and daring festival look.
