I’m finally home after a two-week holiday by the sea. Mentally I’m still there daydreaming about the careless life in the sun. Things at home are not exactly as I might have hoped for the moment so I’d rather take advantage of the small window of opportunity left to stay a bit behind. So in this post I’ll be doing some more summer outfits before skipping to the multi-layered season of the year.
The only thing that can ruin a good day is people.
One of my favorite brands when it comes to elegance preserving the touch of originality is Ted Lapidus. Their selection surprises me every season as I never go out of their boutique empty-handed. If you’re having one of those very lady-like days, yet you’re not keen on looking as if you’re headed for a Buckingham Palace dinner, then I suggest you check this brand out. I, myself like elegance. As Chanel said, it never goes out of style. Elegance has modesty as one of its main components and modesty always arouses seduction (and that’s what we’re all secretly after, right?). Still I avoid conservatism at all costs.
Lying in the sun, having a beer, breathing in the smell of the sea, and I really start feeling all the self-motivational crap I hear from life coaches every day. Life is beautiful, each day is a miracle and other cliché lines that sound very artificial to say the least when you get up at 7am to the same concrete surroundings, city jams and yes, even the morning coffee in the same place every day can lose its magic.
Let’s talk about that moment when winter is coming but you just don’t want to admit it so you don’t resort to your warmer clothes. Instead you try to cover yourself up as much as possible with your summer ones. That’s what I did today. For a while longer we will all walk around half-naked trying to maintain that summer state of mind while trembling with cold and borrowing jackets from our male friends who seem to be more into accepting the unavoidable.
Two hits of the 2017 summer season: the bodysuit and the high waist palazzo pants. They are the perfect combination for that “hourglass shape” figure you’ve been aiming for.
All things change…except for the basic instincts. And one of them seems to be the need to wear white in summer. Once it’s all for one against the heatwave, it’s all for the little white dress that is so fresh it seems to alleviate the weight of the scorching temperatures that have come down upon us.
The trends raging right now in women’s fashion do not always bring out the woman in you. They’re great, they’re cool, fun to wear, very stylish but there are days when you just want to first be a woman. That’s when the romantic, ultrafeminine takes over and I just give in to something as ethereal as this white dress from Stefanel.
What are you willing to do for the sake of fashion? How far are you willing to go? How much are you willing to show? The 90s style that’s back in business today says you’re going to reveal your underwear. Too vulgar? Are you sure?
Since my Italy story appealed to you so much, I decided to stick to the topic. Basically, the day following my arrival, Alina took me to the showroom. I must admit I was a bit anxious as I did not know what I was going to see there and I could never in a thousand lives put on an outfit that is not in tune with my soul.
