Novaldīt krāsu | Restrict a color

Par attīstību un par krāsām. Man liekas, daudziem ir tādas krāsas par kurām varam teikt - nekad. Agrāk sarkanā man bija viena no tādām. Nezinu, laikam tad biju par vāju, lai to novaldītu. Arī tagad, tā nav mana mīļākā, bet nu vairs neliedzu sev šo opciju, vairs nav bail šo krāsu kontrolēt. Enerģija, spēks, kaislība. Traks tas sarkanais un ar to vajag mācēt apieties. Es vēl mācos.

About development and about colors. I guess, most people have those colors about which they say - never. Previously red was one of them for me. I don't know, maybe then I was too weak to control it. Even now, it's not my favorite, but I don't forbid myself this option, there's no fear to restrain the color. Energy, power, passion. It's mad (the red) and you need to know how to handle it. I am still learning.

Ar maziem soļiem | With little steps

Pēdējā laika lētākais trends - melna lente. Drīzāk jau tendences noriets, laikam esmu par vēlu, bet patīk tik un tā. Tāds neliels akcents, kas izmaina visu un beigās sanāk kā galvenais trumpis. Un izskatās dramatiski ar nelielu piepūli, kas to būtu domājis, atliek vien lentīti ap kaklu apsiet. Bet tas ir vēlviens paņēmiens kā izkāpt no tās ērtās komforta zonas netērējot pārāk daudz naudas. Ko vēl es iesaku pamēģināt? Jautras zeķes, kaut ko pāris izmērus lielāku, jebkādu vīriešu kreklu un varbūt bizes? Jāsāk ar mazumiņu.

The most cheapest trend recently - black ribbon. More like this trend's end, maybe I am too late, but I like it anyway. It's a little accent, that changes everything and in the end become the statement piece. And it look dramatic with little effort, who would have thought that all you need to is tie a piece of ribbon around you neck. But it's another way to step out of the comfort zone without spending too much money. What else I suggest to try? Fun socks, something few sizes bigger, any men's shirt and maybe braids? Have to start with something.

Ir tā vērts | It's worth it

Beidzot tiku pie sniega! Šeit ieraksts no šī paša gājiena septembrī, kad solīju atgriezties. Februāra brīvlaiks un sniegotas kalnu galotnes ir perfekta izdevība, un tagad interesanti salīdzināt sezonu skatus. Šoreiz apstājāmies pusceļā, zinājām, ka tālu netiksim bez aprīkojuma un enerģijas. Bet skati pat pusceļā fantastiski. Es nemācēšu aprakstīt savas sajūtas, bet nu gandrīz līdz raudienam. Šeit der vārdu savienojums - elpu aizraujoši, un gribas vēl un vēl, doties tālāk un redzēt vairāk.
Mūsu pirmā pieredze kalnos ziemā un bija tā vērts. Ar "bija tā vērts" domāju bailīgo braucienu ar vasaras riepām kalnu ceļos.

Finally I got some snow! Here, a post from the same hike in September, when I was promising to return. February holidays and snowy mountains seemed as the perfect chance, and now it's amusing to compare the seasonal views. This time we stopped at halfway, we understood we wouldn't get far without the equipment and energy. But the scenery even in halfway was fantastic. I won't be able to describe all the emotions, but I almost cried, that's that. The expression - breathtaking, fits here and does the job. I want to go further and see more and more.
Our first experience in snowy mountains and it was worth it. By "it was worth it" I mean our scary drive up the steep roads with summer tires.

Pamats | The base

Šoreiz gribu parunāt par pamatu. Par to, kas vienmēr paliks. Par to, kas nenoveco, bet no kā nenogurst. Uz to var paļauties, pie tā var atgriezties neskaitāmas reizes, un tu zini, būs labi. Tā ir māju sajūta, cilvēka klātbūtne, komforta zona vai daba. Un tas var būt arī apģērbs.
Apģērbs, kas visādās variācijās vienmēr būs. Būs modē, veikalos vai tavā skapī. Vai manā, par to es zinu vairāk.
Pamats manā skapī ir melnbalts. Tās ir lietas no kā attīstīties, kuras piedod visu un spēj visu. Piemēram, baltas blūzes. Nepārspējamas dažādībā un kompanjonos. Dienās, kad komplekti nevedas, ir tā baltā blūze un tad paliek viegli. Esmu droša, balta blūze man būs vienmēr, un ne viena vien. Un, protams, kā neiztikt bez melnām biksēm, ja runā par galvenajiem gardrobes stūrakmeņiem. Šajās bildēs, nesen iegūtas ofisa stila bikses, bet ja man būtu jāizvēlas, es dodu priekšroku uzticamajām melnajām džinsām ar augsto vidukli. Bet bez melnām biksēm nu nekā. Un tagad jau vairākus gadus savu outfitu dzīvīti nespēju iedomāties bez melnajiem creeperiem no NAF NAF. Jau tagad šausminos, kur atradīšu jaunus, ja ar šiem kaut kas notiks. Šīs kurpes nekad neliek vilties.
Lai apģērbs kļūtu par bāzi tam jābūt vienkāršām, loģiski. Bet arī leoparda raksta mētelis var būt gardrobes galvenais punkts, un tas ir tas fascinējošais stila aspekts. Tā dažādība un izaugsme. Pēc gadiem mans pamats būs citāds, tas pilnveidosies, tad būs laiks palasīt vecos bloga ierakstus.
Šajās bildēs atgriezos pie dabas, un savienoju lauku atmosfēru ar modernu pilsētas apģērbu. Uz lauka retais ietu baltā kreklā. Mūsu pamati atšķiras.

This time I want to talk about the foundation, the base. About what will always stay. About what never gets old, but from what you never get bored of. To which you can always relay, come back numerous times and you know it will be alright. That is the feeling of home, presence of a human, comfort zone or nature. And it can also be clothing.
Clothing, that will always be in multiple variations. Will be in fashion, in stores or in your closet. Or mine, I know about that one more.
The base in my closet is black and white. Those are things to develop from, things that forgive everything and can do anything. For example, white blouses. Unbeatable in their variety and their companions. In days when outfits are harder to come up with, there is the white blouse and then it gets easy. I am sure I will have a white blouse forever, and not only one. And of course, how not to mention black pants when talking about the main points of a wardrobe. In these photos, office style pants I recently picked up, but if I had to choose, I would go with my trusty black high waisted jeans. And for couple of years now I can't imagine my little outfit journey without the black creepers from NAF NAF. I already stress from the thought of finding new ones, if something happens with these. These creepers never let me down.
In order for clothing to become the base it needs to be simple, logical. But leopard print coat can be the main point of a wardrobe. And that is that fascinating aspect of style . It's variety and development. My base will be different in couple of years, it will grow, then will be the time to look through these blog posts.
In these photos I returned to the nature, I combined country feel with modern city outfit. Hardly anybody would wear white blouse on a field. Our bases differ.
