Zara fall 2011 must haves







Been browsing through Zara and found many things for fall that I like. I will not buy them all, but hopefully a few of them will end up in my closet. I really want that blue coat! I've been wanting one in that color from last winter and I must get one now. And I really like the design of this one. It's very classic and the collar has an interesting cut. Another thing are shoes, little leopard booties and the second boots. Love them. I also really like the leather collar and kind of remind me of the one I made this weekend.

Can't wait for fall and winter to come. As you know summer is not my favorite season.
But I will keep the colors. :)

How do you like the new Zara collection?

Love,
B

P.S. What do you think of the new header of First Blue Shoes? I would really appreciate your thoughts about it.

DIY: Leather Collar Necklace



I'm starting this Monday with a very easy DIY I made this weekend. I saw this on Maegan's blog and I really wanted to do it myself. She always does amazing DIY's.
I used fake leather, the same one I used here for this clutch. I also prefer it in pink. I'm also thinking about a different style of this necklace and will show it to you when it's made. :)

To see the full instructions go visit ...love Maegan's blog.


I used my beautiful Bvlgari ribbon.

So what do you think about the necklace?
If you decide to make one, please let me know, I would love to see it. :)

Have a great start of the week!

Love,
B

Touch of blue


I always liked pictures in black and white, I think there is something special about them. I just kept my blue nails ;) There must be a touch of blue.



How do you like black and white pictures?

I want to wish you all a great weekend!
Love,
B

Outfit: Blue and Black







Shorts Zara/ T shirt H&M/ Bag Asos/ Shoes Tchibo/ Nail polish Catrice (BlueCaraCiao)
 
I wanted to pair my favorite blue short with a simple black t shirt and simple black Chanel inspired bag. I like how it turned out. Very simple and I like the contrast of two very strong colors. Blue and black.

I also tried the new trend of having one nail in a different color than others. I used blue and gray. I've bought this blue nail polish I think in spring and this is my first time wearing it. :) I really like it.

How do you like this color combination?  Is this still called color blocking?

Love,
B

Statement necklace

First necklace/ Second necklace

Right now I'm so into big necklaces. I love to wear a simple shirt with a big necklace. I'm loving these two from Mod Cloth. I like the turquoise stones with gold.

I would wear them with a simple white shirt with pink shorts and nice cute flats. :)

How would you wear them?

Love,
B

Waiting for the rain

Shorts Zara/ Shirt Zara/ Coat Zara/ Bag Asos/ Shoes Tchibo

I was talking about this shirt here if you remember. I bought it the same day I bought these blue shorts on sale at Zara. I was so lucky I got the last one and it was my size. I was waiting for the right time to wear it and now it finally came. 
I wore it yesterday when I met with my girls for a drink. I paired it with my beautiful blue shorts.

All day the sun was shining and at around 6pm it started to rain. The sky turned so dark and the light was so beautiful. At first I thought I won't show you this pictures, because I wanted to make them in the sun so you could see better the shirt and the whole outfit but I really like how they turned out, I think the dark sky and this light give the picture something special. 

I could edit them and make the lighter and all that but I really like pictures natural like they are. I just don't like fake stuff.

On the other note, on Monday we leave on our vacation and I'm so excited. Have to start packing as we have full planned weekend with bbq and other stuff. :)

Hope you have a great Friday and the weekend!

Love,
B

Recipe: Raspberry and Cottage Cheese Scones


Ok this must be my favorite recipe! I found the recipe here.

I already made this twice. I like them because they are made with whole wheat flour and gives them such a great taste. This is not a sweet pastry and it goes amazingly well with coffee or tea! Yum! I really recommend this recipe to everyone.
And of course it's so easy to make.
Mine does not look so good like on the original recipe but I'm sure they taste as good. Or maybe better ;) heheh...
I didn't use ricotta, I used natural cottage cheese and I didn't have fresh raspberries so I used frozen raspberries.










Now hurry to the kitchen and start baking and then tell me how it went... :)

Have a great day!
Love,
B

Blue skies and blue dresses

Dress H&M (old)/ Necklace (old)/ Bag Asos/ Shoes Tchibo/ Sunglasses Bershka

Yesterday was sunny and warm enough to wear a dress. Yay! I have this dress for some years now and I still love it because of it's color and because it's very comfy. It's very simple and I love clothes like this. You can accessories it and do what ever you like with it. To have a dress like this in your closet is a must. 
I've added a simple necklace that was from my mom. Simple and summery outfit. :)

How was your weekend?

I had a very relaxing weekend so here's to a new week and a new month! 
 
Hope you had a great start of the week/month. 

Love,
B
