Be Somebody.

First of all i need to apologize from being away from my blog for such a long while. I have been dealing with a lot of struggles in my life for the moment that have been taking all the positive energy from my heart & Soul. I felt that i did wanted to let my thoughts out here  since this blog is where i feel i can put on my thoughts without getting judge or mistreated in any way.

Life is a gift of god. It is beautiful yet unpredictable. If at times you have enjoyed life to its fullest there will also be times when you are let down. We all go through hard times. No matter however satisfied you are, everyone goes through the most difficult situations of life. Life is not a bed of roses. The difficult situations play the role of thorns in it. There comes a time on life when you are a little blue. One or the other rough situation occurs in your life which leaves you shattered with a heavy heart. You are left hopeless. Most difficult situations of life may be different according to different people. Some may get affected by one and some by the other. These situations that you go through are just a test of your patience. You need to act strong. Therefore, stay calm and let go. Don’t give up.

Making an attempt to do something and getting a negative response comes as a failure in life. It is a state or condition wherein a certain objective is not met. Dealing with a failure is a tough situation. Facing failures and learning from them is the right thing to do but seldom are people able to do that.

Losing in any kind of way is difficult; all from Job, relationship, friendship and future plans is where we have to be less hard on ourselves in order to jump into a new adventure of our lives. If one of them fails; it’s normal and we should see it as a lesson for the future.

We need to surround ourselves with people we love; also make a safe space where you can be totally yourself.  This way you’ll be able to become stronger and face life in other way (This takes time). You need to muster a lot of courage and stand for yourself in such cases in order to go through to the situation.

Dealing with a bad situation can be a lot like dealing with grief, and people often go through the same stages: shock and denial, pain and guilt, anger and bargaining, and so on.
You might not be able to fully squelch your emotions, but you can decide to accept what’s happened, regardless of how you feel about it. The sooner you accept it, the sooner you can act from where you are, which is the only way to change how you feel.

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.

gambitskygambitsky

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!

gambitsky

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.
