These are some of the items you need to have in your spring capsule wardrobe.

The Sneakers

Is there a better feeling in the world than hopping from your winter boots to your comfy sneakers? For me, that is one of the best things in spring.

Sneakers are great for everyday wear. You can style them with, well – everything (even with that floral midi dress). If you are still wearing those old sneakers from two or three seasons ago, no problem. If they are white, classic, and chic, they will be a perfect part of your spring capsule wardrobe.

The Midi Dress

Midi dress was one of those items that many girls were avoiding to wear. The specific length of the skirt allowed us to think that it is just not for our height or our legs. However, once you find the right model, you will fall completely in love with this versatile piece.

Midi skirt is perfect for spring – not too revealing, yet flowy and very chic. You can even style it with sneakers.

Straight-Leg Jeans

Straight-leg jeans with cropped hem are one of the most significant trends in the jeans industry right now. They are comfier than skinny jeans, and they are absolutely the trend of this spring season. You can style them with a classy white tee, button-down, sneakers, and heels.

The Boilersuit

Utility trend along with boilersuit are some of the leading trends for spring. Cotton jumpsuits and, ie called boilersuits are fantastic pieces for all those girls who have simple, yet eye-catching style. You can style this lovely item with the rest of your spring capsule wardrobe without any problems.

The Loafers

Loafers are one of those shoes that all fashion designers, editors, and influencers suggest you to buy. They are utterly stylish and chic. Perfect to wear with any kind of clothes – casual, elegant or eccentric. Make sure to choose the ones in neutral shades, such as brown, black or white leather, as well as suede.

The Spring Jacket

The transitional weather and jackets – they don’t work together. However, when you choose a nice, light spring jacket, you can be sure you will have a winner. Raincoats, denim jackets as well as chic trench coats are everything that you need to survive variable spring days.

How to Become More Productive at Home

How to Become More Productive at Home

Whether you freelance from home or you simply want to make that time you spend at home more productive, there are many things you can do to make it work for you. If you were wondering how to become more productive at home and use all your free time to chill, instead of watching Netflix for hours, look no further.

Whether you want more time for yourself, training or to finish your job quicker, here are some tips that can help you.

 

Good Morning Routine is Crucial

A good morning routine is everything. It will make you feel much better throughout the day. If you really want to nail it, get up early and make yourself ready for the day. If you wake up early enough you will have time to prepare some healthy and nutritious breakfast that will get you through the day.

You should take some time for yourself in the morning. Write a journal, exercise or simply enjoy your first cup of coffee.

Write Down Your Tasks

Whether you are freelancing or you simply want to do all your tasks through the day, the best possible solution is to write them down. Always have a notebook or a planner near, so you can theme your time and make it more productive at home.

 

Distractions Off

When you are at home, there is a lot of things that can cause you to feel distracted. Tv, your mobile, and people can distract you from work or doing things you have planned to.

Find a room where you can work and relax. You should also have your space, clean, and decluttered. Be disciplined and try to cut out distractions as much as you can.

Stop Pushing Yourself

Try not to work too hard. That won’t lead you anywhere. Doing too much stuff without taking a break can only lead you to breakdown. You can always use that famous Pomodoro Technique. It consists of work for about 25 minutes and small breaks. Allow yourself to rest and chill after hard work. Whether you work from home or you just want to clean your house – stop pushing yourself to do things you can’t.

 

Use Your Free Time

When I say use your free time, I absolutely don’t mean you should use it for work. Your free time is only yours and you should know it. However, don’t let your free time be the time for doing nothing. Be productive, create, or simply enjoy things you like to do. Schedule your time and always leave some time off to get some things done.

Reward Yourself

No matter how much work you have done in a day, you should definitely celebrate and reward yourself. From small things such as a warm cup of cocoa or a warm bath to shopping – everything counts. Track your progress and make sure tomorrow is better than today.

 

How do you make yourself more productive at home? Hopefully, these tips will help you.

For all of you out there who find it hard to organize and fulfill all your plans, there is no better solution than getting yourself a right planner or even notebook to make a bullet journal. Here are some of the best tricks that will help you make your planner works for you.

Color Coding

We get it – you like your black pen more than anything, and you like your planner to look minimalistic. However, when you filling in your monthly calendar, you can easily be lost in many meetings, events, and dates if you write only with a black pen. That is why many lifestyle bloggers and organization experts recommend starting color coding your days.

For instance, if you have a deadline, don’t forget to color it in some vivid shade so you can absolutely see it before it is too late. Also, use bright, strong colors for important dates, such as paying bills days or some other important meetings.

Stickers are Cool

Yes, stickers are cool, no matter what you think. Don’t look at them as a child thing – they can be really helpful! Make sure your days are themed with stickers. You can find many stickers online these days, so there should be one for all your days. It is a great way to visualize your planner, by making it more eye-catching and cool.

 

Add Post-Its Cards

To make sure you won’t forget any big event or some important birthday, add post-it card on a day when you have that planned. Write on the card what you think is important and stop worrying about it. You can’t just flip over the pink post-it card, right?

Use these cards also to mark the beginning of a month. In that way, you don’t have to flip through pages to find the following month.

Plan By the Hour

You set a timer and plan your day in 30 minutes parts, which supposedly increases your productivity. If you find hard to organize during the day, planning by the hour can help you stay in track.

 

Theme Your Days

Many employees use this technique of theming their days. For instance, it is known that your energy on Monday can be really low, so plan some light activities and finish some low energy tasks, emails, or cleaning your space. However, for Friday, as it is known as high energy day, plan something harder, something that will keep you energized and satisfied as the day ends.

Make To-Do Lists

Even if you have a planner that helps you with the organization, to-do lists are still the perfect way to get through your busy day. Don’t forget to write them down and check them after they are done.

Fendi Baguette Bag is Making its Return

Fendi Baguette Bag is Making its Return

When I think about baguette bag, first thing popping right in front of my eyes is the scene from Sex and the City, Carrie in her red V-neck top, stacked gold necklaces with Fendi baguette bag under her arm. I guess we can also talk about that unfortunate scene when Samantha lost her Fendi bag as well. Remember?

Until this year, all these outfits along with the baguette bag were buried in ‘90s archives. However, Fendi decided it the right time to bring back this bag and make it popular again. Instagram has just exploded under the number of photos that cool It-girl squad have been publishing lately.

I admit that baguette is not for everyday wear, especially not for working hours. The reason is simple – besides your phone, wallet, and keys you can’t actually put anything else in there. So, if you are a businesswoman with a laptop and lunch, I guess you should stick to your work bag for day events. However, the baguette is perfect for late night drinks, or those days when you simply want to stroll down the streets.

 

Short History of Baguette Bag

When Silvia Venturini Fendi proposed to the headquarters her new design of the bag, they were more than skeptical about it. All her colleagues suggested that the bag was too small, comparing to other bags that Fendi offered on the market. But Silvia was determined about it, and so baguette bag was released in 1997.

This bag soon became a cult object. It is not only the fashion accessory but the creative object that many women wanted to have. From Madonna to J Lo, all trendspotters were seen carrying the baguette in the late ‘90s and 2000s.  

This year, Fendi bag is here to stay. Even if it has a tote version now, many girls still opt for the small baguette one. Along with the redesigned and revived Dior saddle bag, they are now objects of craving for many It girls.

Small and Chic

This might not be the most functional bag ever, but it is definitely the one that will give you that great ‘90s vibe. You can wear it with all-white-everything look like cool girl Rikke Krefting.

Browns are Trending

Matching your logo brown bag with pants will now give you even better ‘90s glamour. You can easily pull out this outfit for a night out with friends, or for a casual coffee break during the busy day.

White For Summer

Typical Fendi print on this bag will surely make your outfits trendy. The trend of wearing logos is not gone so you can be sure your outfits will be noticed.

Pastel Baguette

Pastels were definitely one of the biggest trends for last and this season. If you have that luck to find baguette bag in pastel pink color, then you can wear it with other pastels – lilac, baby blue or sage green.

Crossbody Baguette

You can wear your small Fendi bag more casually like Caro Daur. This larger version is great for those girls who like to carry more things everywhere with them.
