WIW: finally warming up!

This was a hard week and in the end I had to cancel a day off today and instead worked for 11 h! I did not have neither time not energy to put into dressing this week so it is all FFBO and quite a few repeats.

I am not sure these grey sweater tights are really working here but they are the warmest tights I have and it was freezing!

Blondo tall boots

Another simple outfit - jeans, turtleneck and a moto jacket
Paige straight leg jeans
Danier moto jacket and silver tote
Banana Republic turtleneck
Sam Edeman python booties.

pic 3 Radiant Orchid and grey
I love Radiant Orchid but this t-neck is a sole piece I have in this color I think.I hope to remedy it this  season!
Banana Republik t-neck
Halogen grey pencil skirt
Naya booties
Danier satchel

This is a repeat I am happy to repeat :-)...almost. Unfortunately it looks that I am going to take a break with slouchy trousers for a next while. I have lost some weight recently so not all jeans and pants which were on the snug side suddenly fit and my slouchy trousers are becoming too big - I am sure you can see it here. It looks like I will be wearing mostly bootcuts and skinnies for a while :-(

Cobalt wool trousers - Banana Republic
Polka dot sweater - Only Mine
Danier satchel
Clarks booties

...and this is why I wore skinny trousers today ;-0 I was leaving very early to hit the gym before work so this was a fast "grab and go" from the closet.

Banana Republic Martin skinnies
Banana Rebuplic t-neck
Vanelli booties

Sorry for a very brief descriptions - no energy left today. :0(

Thank you for looking and as usual all comments and suggestions are appreciated!

Have a great and happy International Women's Day to all of you!

    LOVE THESE ALL!  Each for a different reason.  You look so slender in 4!  And 2 is so street style fab.  You rock, Sveta.

  • Adelfa replied 6 years ago

    I love your multi-outfit posts because I love seeing how your point of view is diverse yet consistent!

  • O replied 6 years ago

    Fabulous set of FFBOs! I loooove #3 and #5. I had not much chance to comment on your other threads (skirts, skirts!) so I'll 'catch up' now - you always look amazing. 

    I hope the work gets easier soon.

  • Jenava replied 6 years ago

    Oh my, #3 is amazing.  Classic Sveta!  The others are all very nice as well, but #3 is a standout!

    I had to replace my slouchy trousers when I lost even a little bit of weight.  It's so funny how once size can make slouchy become swimming!  FWIW, though, #4 doesn't look extreme to my eye.

  • Deborah replied 6 years ago

    Seriously Sveta you look wonderful in all of these outfits. You carry yourself in such a way that everything looks amazing. #2 and #4 get a special mention....gorgeous.

  • Neel replied 6 years ago

    Girl .. That orchid's your color :). You look stunning in that combo! Love your other looks too. But 3 is surely my favorite :)

  • replied 6 years ago

    I agree with the others, you always look sensational Sveta and these photos are proof. I'm loving you in radiant orchid and your legs look a mile long in #4.

    I like how Adelfa said your style is diverse yet also consistent. Fab!

  • replied 6 years ago

    I think you look great in all of these! Your trousers don't look too big to me.

    I hope you get that day off soon Sveta!

  • leopardluxe replied 6 years ago

    All of these outfits look fantastic on you. Your style looks so effortless and chic!

  • Joyce B replied 6 years ago

    Great outfits! I love number 5.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 6 years ago

    You are STUNNING! There's something so natural about your style Sveta - like it just comes from inside you without any fussing, you know?

  • torontogirl replied 6 years ago

    Great outifts! #2 is my fave - so chic.

  • Karie replied 6 years ago

    It's impossible for me to pick a favorite, you look spectacular in all of these! The dotty sweater in #4 makes me swoon, and you look so svelte in #3. My only suggestion is to keep wearing these outfits :)

  • Runcarla replied 6 years ago

    Thank goodness for FFBOs! All good, but #3 is my fav, followed by #5.

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    You look absolutely wonderful in all of these! Sorry it was a tough week. I think my fave is #3...and then #5......but all are wonderful. 

  • Beth Ann replied 6 years ago

    Your fits are so modern and fresh, Sveta.  That makes everything just a notch above the crowd.  I love them all, but I'm particularly enamored of 2 and 4!

  • Janet replied 6 years ago

    What a fab set of outfits as always, Sveta! I'm always amazed at how consistently terrific your style is. 

  • Catnip replied 6 years ago

    These are all terrific.  You look wonderful in blue and purple.  I tried to select a favorite, but could not decide between #3 and #5. 

  • Vicki replied 6 years ago

    You have some beautiful FFBO's, Sveta, and you've reminded me to get out my sweater dress and to make use of that wonderful black-white-denim combination. What a gorgeous scarf (and outfit) in the last photo, too. Hope you get some time off!

  • Angie replied 6 years ago

    Wooohoooo. Warmer temperatures. 

    You are beautiful inside and our Sveta. You know #2 is my best. xo

  • JAileen replied 6 years ago

    You look great in all of them, but the white jacket looks especially fresh.

  • fuzzylogic replied 6 years ago

    I love your modern classic look, Sveta! But mostly I love the attitude with which you wear your clothes. It brings them to life!

    I love all of these outfits! The chic 'tude of #2, the pulled together neatness of #5, the relaxed elegance of #1, and the vibrant colours of #3 and #4

  • Sveta replied 6 years ago

    Thank you all for the comments and compliments, ladies: you are too kind! It is nice to have a wardrobe where you have a lot of FFBO options, isn't it? Makes one's life a bit easier on busy mornings.
    Jenava, this is so true. When the trousers are already on the relaxed side loosing a bit of weight makes them too big too quickly. It is hard to see in the picture but they are bordering on "too big to wear and feel fab" state :-(
    I have dropped one pair of my slouchy trousers at my mom's today to see if she can take them in: otherwise I do not have a single pair of trousers for my upcoming work trip in the end of March. I decided not to buy any new bottoms this year until I see what my new weight and shape are going to be so if she can take them in it would be great.

  • Lisa replied 6 years ago

    A great week, I'm noticing your newest pieces have a strong, modern, graphic vibe to them.  It's a lovely look on you.

  • sarah replied 6 years ago

    These are wonderful, classic Sveta looks. I only wish I could look so put together day in and day out. Well done.

  • annagybe replied 6 years ago

    #2 is great.

  • shevia replied 6 years ago

    You are the picture of elegance in #3. I adore the white jacket. The light blue on the dress is magic on you. Sveta, you are gorgeous in all of these, that's the truth.
