Feeling so clean and fresh in all white or simply just lighter looks! After searching for the perfect pair of culottes for years, I couldn’t wait to wear these white ones, although it started to snow just a few hours after snapping these pictures. Culottes are a bit tricky I think, but somehow, I find them playful and easy to wear in comparison to long wide trousers. Exposing the ankles always gives a more feminine and lighter look, but since it’s still cold I need to wear something underneath to keep me warm.

Even though this outfit is rather dressed up I wear these kinds of outfits quite often. I attend and co-host events almost every week and I want to look put together without being boring. A little black dress paired with heels would be too formal I think, therefore bringing a chunky knit into the look brings it down a notch.

Because I’m wearing white pants I didn’t want to wear black stockings underneath. So, instead I went for Norlyn Premium control stockings (shade Powder). Control stockings might sound a bit “unsexy”, but these are perfect for me and those of you who have standing jobs, like to wear heels or fly! I’ve noticed that flying makes my legs bloated and uncomfortable. Last time I flew I had to squat in the bathroom on a regular basis just because my legs were aching so badly! From now on, I will not enter an airplane without invigorating stockings. Not willing to be uncomfortable or worried and why should I, when I can wear these super sheer and unnoticeable stockings? I guess age doesn’t come alone haha ;).

Why I exercise?

Health,17 March 2018

Just came back from my third yoga class this week. Today was challenging. My mind played tricks with me- making me lose focus. My body feels relaxed but tired and I’m going to spend the rest of my day doing something totally different… I need to balance myself out from this yogi bubble. Maybe pizza and staying up late watching tv?

Did any of you follow my old blog were my main focus was health? As I am a licensed personal trainer, nutrition specialist and health coach well-being plays a very important role in my life, but has been put in the shadow for a while. Everything else has come first, which is natural I guess. Not that I’ve neglected my health, it just hasn’t been as much of a routine as before. Not as tangible and concrete. Anyhow, I try to follow my instinct and that’s what I don’t want to lose. I want to feel good both physically and also my thoughts about my body. Feeling like myself without having to think more or less about my body is what I always work towards. Although, acceptance and gratitude is all I require. No unrealistic ideas about having to love every inch of my body. That itself puts pressure. Working out in any form is my way to forget about everything else and give myself time to feel my body. This time is extremely precious and helps me find focus, strength and perspective. What are the reasons you exercise?
