ootd: freedom of choice

dress - Dear Freedom | shoes - Nike | bag - Zara | jacket - Mango

Helloooo & Happy Monday!

I was thinking the other day - don't you just love the fact that we don't have to wear what we're told these days? We're free to choose what we like in 21st century and all the rules that existed before are not present anymore. Women can wear trousers if they want to, nobody really cares if you pair your pencil skirt with sneakers and heels are worn with Adidas joggers these days.
How awesome is that?

Having lived in Lithuania most of my life, then a bit in the UK and the US, I believe that my city has changed for the better regarding the 'outfit tolerance'. Yes, old ladies sometimes are not happy about the fact that one decides to wear ankle boots and shorts in the middle of summer. Yes, even I get a lot of looks for having my hair this silver colour (and especially when I'm straight out of the salon and it's purple-ish or something). However, I do feel Vilnius is more open every day. People express themselves by wearing unusually stylish outfit combinations and I think that's amazing! How do you feel about this in Lithuania?

Talking about my actual outfit today - it's a very special dress to show you guys. You might know by now that I love details and that's why this dress from Dear Freedom is something that I was immediately drawn to. I love how well made it is, every single stitch was thought out, which is something I always expect from a high end designer piece.
Also, the design itself is very interesting and futuristic, which allowed me to wear jeans and sneakers with it. I just love this kind of versatility - no need to wear heels and look all dressed up.
I've also noticed that I've become skirts and dresses person lately - maybe it's because I wear pants underneath anyway? Funny!

I hope you've had a great start of the week today and I'll see ya later this week for another Thursday spot cafe recommendation! x
