Look of the Day: Minimalist Look

Minimalist look

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great Easter.

I'm sure you'll agree with me that there is nothing classier than a simple pairing of a white jumper and black trousers. Although I'm a huge fan of vibrant colours, there are some days when I prefer to opt for a minimalist look that will never go out fashion.

By the way, did you know that today people in Poland, where I'm originally from, celebrate Smigus Dyngus (Wet Monday)? According to the tradition, it was a day when boys would sneak into girls' home at daybreak to throw buckets of water over them while they were still in bed. People believed that the more a girl was splashed with water, the higher her chances were of getting married. 

Nowadays, everyone celebrates Smigus Dyngus. Both kids and adults spray each other with water and have lots of fun.

Spring Florals

Happy Monday everyone! Spring has officially sprung so today I wanted to share with you an outfit that put me in the spring mode the second I got dressed.

I think it's safe to say that most women adore flowers and floral prints. They're a springtime given so we don't have to look far to find ditsy print dresses and other floral patterned clothes staring at us from the rails. 

Florals are incredibly fun and flirty so you can rock the trend no matter what your style is. Try floral print accessories such as a scarf or shoes to brighten your look or go bold like me with a statement jacket. 

Are you planning to wear florals this year? What do you think about the trend?

Spring Layering

Happy Sunday! I hope you're having a great weekend.

Although blanket capes have already got a lot of coverage on my blog (herehere or here), I couldn't wait to show you the latest addition to my collection. Isn't it gorgeous? 

I'm sure you will agree with me that dressing at this time of year proves to be a bit tricky. While on one hand, we are fed up with heavy coats, we still need an extra layer of protection against the chill. That's when blanket capes come in handy. 

As they are simultaneously chic and cosy, I think they're perfect for transitioning between seasons. We can throw them over basically anything to brave any weather conditions and look stylish at the same time.

How to Wear a Slogan Sweatshirt - Part 3

how to wear a slogan sweatshirt
Happy Wednesday! Today I wanted to show you the final look in my 'How to style a slogan sweatshirt' series. 

I have to say it was a bit tricky to complete this challenge because after putting together 2 looks which you could see here and here, I wasn't sure what else I could do with a slogan sweatshirt. 

Then it hit me that I should style it with capri trousers which featured on the blog a few times last year. They are super comfy and look more polished than jeans so I'm definitely going to make the most of them in the coming months. In fact I can't wait for the weather to get warmer so I can wear them with summery tops. 

What do you think of today's look? Do capri trousers and slogan sweatshirt make a good combination?

Misconceptions about Fashion Bloggers

Although I've been running My Daily Wear for 18 months, I still find it difficult to explain to some people what I do and why. I think they may have read Urban Dictionary's definition of a blogger which describes us as people with "enough time or narcissism to document every tedious bit of minutia filling their uneventful lives." 

As blogging continues to grow, it shouldn't be surprising to see that people make more and more assumptions about this new medium.With blogging myths all around us, today I wanted to share with you the top 4 misconceptions about fashion bloggers I've heard since launching this online space. 

All fashion bloggers do is dress up in pretty clothes and take pictures. 

I really wish some people realise that fashion blogging involves more than wearing pretty clothes and posing to photos. Just like other bloggers, we spend a lot of time thinking about blog ideas, editing photos, writing posts, scheduling social media content, etc. We often have to juggle blogging alongside a full-time job and other commitments so it's not as trivial as it may look like. 

A fashion blogger's wardrobe is filled to the brim with free clothes.

There is a big misconception that bloggers receive freebies every day. While it's true that brands sometimes offer us free products to review, we put a lot of effort into our blog posts. At the end of the day, nothing in life is free. 

Fashion bloggers only wear designer brands. 

If you follow my blog from time to time, you have probably noticed that over half of my wardrobe comes from Tesco. While some people spend a fortune on designer clothes, I'm not ashamed to admit that I shop on a budget. I set up My Daily Wear to showcase my personal style as I'm a firm believer that you don't have to break the bank to look elegant. 

Bloggers love the spotlight. 

While I post outfit photos on my blog and Instagram page, I can assure you that I don't crave attention. I can be quite shy and I'd rather stay at home than attend a huge party. 

Fashion bloggers only read fashion magazines and talk about clothes. 

It really annoys me when some people assume that just because I talk about clothes on my blog, I must be shallow and dumb. I have a Master's degree and can hold a decent conversation. Also as an avid reader, I love curling up on the sofa with a great book and a cup of coffee. 

What do you think about these fashion blogging myths? Is there anything else you would add to the list?

How to Wear a Slogan Sweatshirt - Part 2

how to style a slogan sweater

Hello and welcome to the second instalment of my 'How to wear a slogan sweatshirt' challenge. If you missed the first part, you can find it here

Today I wanted to show you the second sweatshirt that I bought during my trip to Primark. Did I mention that it cost only £5? 

As sweatshirts are branded as casual wear, you probably won't be surprised to see that I took a casual approach and styled mine with white shirt, jeans and sneakers that coincidently match the colour of my sweater.

Although I don't often trot about in sneakers, I quite like this off duty uniform and will certainly don it more often. 

What do you think about today's look? Please let me know in the comments below and don't forget to check this space for the final look in the series!

How to Wear a Slogan Sweatshirt - Part 1

how to wear a slogan sweater

Today's post has been inspired by 2 slogan sweatshirts that I recently picked up during my loungewear haul at Primark.

Primark wasn't my kind of shop for years due the bad quality of clothing. However, since it upped its game, I thought it would only be fair to give it another go.

I have to admit that I wasn't disappointed as the loungewear and casual wear collections were absolutely spot on.

The slogan sweatshirts I picked up for myself are too pretty to be just worn at home (they would probably end up being covered in tomato sauce and other food INSERT A BIG EMBARRASSED EMOJI HERE) so I decided to incorporate them into my regular wardrobe. As they are a lot different to what I usually wear, I also set myself with a mini challenge to show you how I can use them to create various looks.

To kick off the challenge, I took this Bonjour sweatshirt to put together a laid back dressy look (a slogan sweatshirt can't really be branded as 'dressy; so I think that a laid back term is more appropriate)

What do you think about this look? Would you wear a slogan sweatshirt with a skirt and heels?

Summer Dress in Winter

summer dress in winter

I have to admit that once upon a time I used to think that summer dresses can only be worn in summer. Now I know it was silly as there is no rule which states that we have to banish our favourite summer clothes to the back of the wardrobe for months. 

Of course I'm not saying that we can get away with absolutely everything at this time of year. An outfit consisting of a puffer jacket and flip flops is a definite no-no unless you really want to stand out from the crowd! 

However, take a look at the polka dot dress I'm wearing today. Although it's made from a lighter fabric, it's perfectly wearable right now. I simply added opaque tights and jazzed up the entire look with my bright red coat. I also couldn't resist and opted for my new patent shoes, which debuted on the blog on Monday.  

What do you think of this look? Do you cling onto your summer clothes through all the seasons?

Last Month

February has just marched out of the calendar. I'm not complaining as it wasn't the best month and I'm really looking forward to see what the future has in store for me in March.

February was all about job search. I spent my days filling in job applications and writing covering letters. You probably know the drill. 

Sadly, I haven't had much success yet but I'm not giving up as I believe that I have the required skills and experience to succeed in my chosen field (PR/communications). I'm sure that someone will soon recognise my potential and take a chance on me. 

How was your February? Did you do anything interesting? 

P.S. I can't currently reply to your comments as there is something wrong with system. However, I read every single comment you leave and I'm grateful for your kind words :)
