Retro Blues!

With winter, sets in the scene for cozy knits, furry snoods, warm boots and textured tweeds. Tweed always reminds me of still from vintage movies - actor wearing classy tweed coat waits for someone outside a retro bar on a chilly night or an Irish man on his way to hunt.

Year after year this classy fabric is revamped into contemporary styles. This fall/winter it has made a big appea
rance again and here is me celebrating the glorious history with this outfit :)

I have paired up a houndstooth patterned tweed shorts in a warm brown color with a burgundy cable knit sweater. Adding an embellished peter pan collar makes the sweater irresistibly cute.

Sheer tights as you know are indispensable now. They let me adapt to the colder weather without sacrificing my short dresses. How I love 'em!

Shorts & Tights - H&M (Shorts are now available on sale in stores)
Sweater & Collar - H&M
Shopper Bag - Zara

Tip - Don't fear the winter! Don't make it an excuse to stay indoor, embrace it in style with your cozy outfits and a steaming cup of coffee. As they say in Sweden 'Det finns inget dåligt väder, bara dåliga kläder' which means "There is no bad weather, only bad clothing." ..... Eller Hur?

Happy Weekend!

What is Fashion? O.o

Have some or all of you been wondering why do I post random stuff about the quotes I like, what I eat or about my gym routines on Facebook, Instagram? The answer is disguised in the big question what is fashion to you?

Fashion to me is a lifestyle that reflects attitude and value of a person. Its in what I cook and eat, its in the way I design my house, its the my hobbies, its in how I dress up e...
veryday, its in my health & fitness regime, its n the books I read, in the movies I watch and the music I listen. To become fashionable you don't need to do different things, you just need to do things differently.

As Coco Chanel said "Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening."

Through this blog I not only intend to inspire you with wardrobe styling but also motivate you to follow your dream lifestyle, to step out of your comfort zone, to take out time for yourself, to do things that really make you happy, to be good in whatever you do and be healthy.

“How does one become a butterfly?"
"You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.”

I would love to hear what is Fashion to you though?

Ways to wear White Tee -- Styling Secrets

Did you know, that white t-shirt lying in the non famous corner of your wardrobe is the most imperative clothing must have? Is it being put to use only during work-out sessions or under a sweater on a chilly evening? If yes, then I definitely need to shake you up and open your eyes to the incredibly gorgeous and timeless style statements that can be achieved from this understated piece of your closet.

From the hundreds of ways to wear the white t-shirt, here are a few of my styling secrets. Hope you can benefit from these and resurrect your non famous plain to most wanted chic as this is what "Plainjanesfashionrescue" is about :)

24X7 Classic - Pair up an oversized white tee, with a pair of blue denim jeans. This is a classic look that will never age up.

Daytime Trendy - Deviate from the normal and pair up your white tee with a colored denim/trouser - red, blue, green, orange. Go bizarre with the color choice, white looks good with any color. Tuck in the T-shirt for a trendy ensemble.

Daytime Chic - Short Skirts - A spring summer favorite yet you can work it in winter with leggings. Pair you tee with a short plain, pleated, plaid or a printed skirt. Finish it off with heels to class it up.

Daytime cool - Shorts - Put on any shorts be it denim, athletic, cargo or plaids, hot pants and throw on your white tee. You can even color block it with even a third color handbag and you're ready to rock your grill party or a Sunday movie.

9:00-17:00 Office - Coat - You have to wear it to believe that your versatile white tee can be your best friend at work. Pair it with a black coat and any trouser or a skirt (pencil, pleated, A-line or fitted) for a smart casual official outfit.

Evening Serenity - Long Skirt - Hands-down favorite! The casualness of the tee matched with the flowy long skirt instantly gives you a bohemian chic vibe.

Evening in vogue - Dress up your white tee with a leather pant or a leather skirt and a handsome pair of heels. Throw in a biker jacket and a scarf for a chilly night out.                            

If you need help in finding out the right stores to buy these looks, just drop me a note and I will guide you through to the right online stores or retail outlets.

One Fine Morning!


Hustling off to work one morning on a cold breezy autumn day, longing desperately for a steaming cup of coffee it struck my mind that its the little things in life that make us happy like fresh flowers, chocolate cake, falling in love, seeing your family after a long time, hugging your loved ones, laughing till tears flow down your cheeks and you clap your hands like a retarded seal, listening to your favorite song over and over again, pleasant surprises, crying of happiness, looking at a breathtaking scenery, having good times with your friends.

The mantra is to find beauty in small things, to not to limit yourself, to make your passion a priority, to focus your energy on good.

So, the next time you drink coffee or tea, take in the smell and the flavor. When you breathe, feel the air enter your lungs :-)

I prioritize and live my passion through my fashion blog, trust me this makes me very happy, really!

Fashion Tip for the day - Add a bright popping color shoe, bag or accessory to your dark colored outfit and transform it instantly from dull and boring to chic and stylish.

Black Trouser, Grey jersey top - ZARA
Red Ballerinas - MANGO
Peace necklace - Glitter

Stay happy & blessed my lovelies!

That It Rains!

Every time that it rains, it takes me down the memory lane and stops at the doorsteps of the music vocal class from school days. The vague memory of us tiny, signing 'Raindrops keep falling of my head' and 'A 100 miles' leaves a cherishing smile. 

'Raindrops keep falling on my head' is a classic favorite. I will post the video just after this photo post and throw you back into the 70's. Just lie back on the couch and time travel into your best times.

Raindrops keep fallin

g on my head
And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
Nothin' seems to fit
Those raindrops are falling on my head, they keep falling

So I just did me some talkin' to the sun
And I said I didn't like the way he' got things done
Sleepin' on the job
Those raindrops are falling on my head, they keep falling

Sweater - MQ
Skirt - Monki
Ballerina shoes - Guess
