Since the last post’s outfits have been rather on the casual side, I wanted to do something more chique for this one. I find the easiest way to make it seem as if you have put a lot of effort in your styling is throwing on a nice summer dress. It’s probably because people associate them with special occasions when in reality you don’t even have to worry about matching the top to the bottom half of your body. For some reason I used to hate dresses when I was younger, but reorganizing my closet I realized I have accumulated quite a collection over the past years. However, this pinstriped baby blue piece from Zara is new to my wardrobe and I am completely in love with it. I decided to pair it with my biker boots from Pull & Bear to make it a little more edgy and everyday appropriate. But I can also see myself wearing this with white sneakers or even high heels for the ultimate dress up. The possibilities are endless.
I lasted exactly 7 days until I broke my promise to not buy any clothes in the month of May. I remember passing by H & M and figuring just having a look wouldn’t be against the rules. Well, it isn’t. But falling in love with a pair of lace-up jeans and buying it two days later definitely is. Looking back, it was naive of me to take the risk of entering the store in the first place. Once I like a piece, I have no self control. I should have known that my stubborn self wouldn’t rest until it left the shop with the item in question. To my defense, these jeans are remarkably unique and I haven’t seen anything alike anywhere else. You could think that this kind of a statement piece is hard to style, but it actually isn’t. Just throw on a basic T, some sneakers like I did and you have a casual outfit that will still turn heads.
Sorry for being M.I.A. for the last few weeks. This was definitely not intended since I had planned to upload at least once a week. But somehow whenever I try to plan things everything turns out to be different anyway. First, the weather wasn’t cooperating at all and it was still raining and freezing in April. Then, scheduling an ‘appointment’ was not easy either. I got a lot of free time on my hand for possible shoots, but taking photos of me by myself doesn’t really work. Finally, we were able to not only find a free day, but also one with perfect weather conditions. I was super stoked to see how the new camera lens I bought would perform and it didn’t disappoint. It was recommended to me by two photographers I met on Bali and is 100 % worth the investment. I look forward to playing around with it and see its full potential.
