Wrap me up in Autumn Colors.

gambitskygambitsky1

Since the unpredictable Scandinavian weather  has been having menopause, it has been really hard to be able to shoot looks for you guys. I’m deeply sorry for this… But since i live in a country that 50% is snow, 48% is rain and 2% is sun, it can be really challenging for me to be able to shoot the way i like.

But the good news are that my talented photographer Mikael has got new camera equipment for us to be able to work when the weather is bad. We will be able to shoot inside without being completely needing the sunlight; which is really good.

Anyways, I really love the way this outfit looks. It’s sophisticated yet so comfortable! I have always been a fan of big and soft scarfs during the autumn and winter; it does so much to a whole dark outfit and also not to forget… keeping you warm.
Here i’m using the scarf around my upper body and securing it with a belt.

Since the scarf has different kind of colors; i paired together with a burgundy bag to give my outfit a little bit more of life on these dark days.

I really love these kind of looks; easy to achieve and not necessary expensive; Which i think it’s a big plus 😉 .

HOW TO MAKE YOUR BLACK OUTFIT STAND OUT.

gambitsky

The key to pulling off an all black outfit like this for these sorts of occasions is mixing and matching materials to add dimension rather than being minimal and flat.
This skirt has such delicate details.  I love the endings with the lace and open sides of this skirt. I have also chosen to wear the skirt with a silky shirt and a pink sweater to make my outfit stand out and also because of the weather is colder now.
I really love the elegance of this look.
To finalize this outfit, it never hurts to accessorize with a bag with a splash of details. The size is just right for a coffee date with friends or a party as it’s able to hold all of my essentials, plus it compliments the entire ensemble just right.

Also  The nominations for Vixen Awards are open! And it would be amazing if you could nominate my blog GAMBITSKY for Fashion Blog of the year <3  You can go directly to the nomination HERE

Perfectly Fluffy Outwear

gambitskygambitsky1

Yesterday i was wearing this fluffy pink jumper which is incredibly cozy! I’ve seen a lot of these jumpers from every brand and in every store but what I specifically love about this one (except for the color and material) is how oversized it is ; plus the edginess  it gives to a black outfit.

For those who have been following me for a while; you guys know how much i love leather jackets and this one gives a sophisticated touch to my outfit, of which you probably know I’m a big fan of.
I Matched it to the best looking and most comfortable skirt jumpsuit and of course I had to add a pair of heels & a leather bag to make my whole outfit stand out.

Dear Annie; Just wear your Black dress!

Can’t go wrong with a almost a total black look, right? It’s tuesday afternoon; and I’m preparing myself to move. This time i will be moving on my own place since i feel it’s time for me to open that door on this time of my life. I’m very exited but i cannot deny that this big step of my life is making me a bit nervous & anxious; I’m not a big fan of  big changes or situations i do not feel control of , but it’s also very exiting and challenging to be able to overcome many of my fears just by living alone.

Today it’s all about this look, which was a very simple, comfortable and preppy outfit thanks to the coat with the buttons. We found this cozy stair that added some edge and a bit of color on these pictures, which became really autumnal thanks to the dark green, White and brown tones in the background.

I’m a huge fan of going black from head to toe – providing that you’re mixing up the materials. That’s why I chose to combine a woolen jacket, light camel scarf & this dress that i really love. I really enjoy to wear dresses during the autumn; it’s very easy to style with different jackets; shoes and bags…which of course it makes this little black dress a must in the garderobe.

What i love about this dress is that you can wear it with a pair of heels and a leather jacket for a night out or just wear it on a day at work with flat shoes and coat over it for a less dressy look.

HOW TO WEAR NUDE COLORS.

gambitskygambitsky

When Mother Nature is still trying to make up her mind, a good multifaceted coat becomes a mandatory part of my wardrobe. Having the right outerwear that is easy to remove if it gets warm (yay sun!) but is also able to keep me warm when the wind picks up or it starts to rain, is hard to come by. I think that a good camel coat is the perfect choice for these unpredictable weather patterns because the color is neutral, fits still for the autumn, and isn’t too heavy to carry around. Who doesn’t want a jacket that is multi-seasonal and versatile?  There is an effortless classy sophistication about this coat and it can enhance anything from the classic staples (like a t-shirt and jeans) to an evening dress. The simplicity of the design makes it so that there is never an occasion that you couldn’t wear it.

I like to keep an edgy look on my outfits; accessories and different details on the clothes themselves are important for me since i tend to wear a lot of basic pieces. I paired this gorgeous jacket with a romantic sweater in a nude color matching my skirt and the texture of it.

The Little Red Riding Hood

Black is one of the colors i wear the most; that’s probably not a secret for you. Sometimes i like to spice up my black outfits with some other colors. Red has become one of my favorite colors right after orange and green.
Since the weather still let me wear dresses and heels; i needed to take advantage of that, So i paired my little black dress and hat with this gorgeous statement piece from the latest H&M Studio collection.
This piece is just extremely dramatic as well as it is full of details as you might see; which i really love on a garment.

Using hats during the autumn has always been one of my favorite accessories of every season. A hat goes never out of trend, it can make a simple outfit stand out and completed.
