If someone were to ask me today how I’d like my summer uniform to look like, I would probably say that it should look exactly like today’s outfit, except for the heels, it gives me a headache just thinking about walking long distances in these nude beauties, no matter how gorgeous they are.
I wear my hair straight more than I wear it wavy, I like my shoes flat and comfortable more than I like them sexy and high, I love blue more than I do pink, and I know little about make-up. But the way I see it, femininity blooms from within, it’s in the way you talk, in the way you carry yourself, in the way you move, in every delicate gesture that defines your very being.
I always believed that happiness comes from the small things, but lately I realized that happiness can only shine through a grateful heart. The last couple of months haven’t been the easiest, and I’ve been tired, and worried, and sometimes sad, but in the midst of it all I found a lot of things to be grateful for, and a lot of small reasons to be happy about, these gorgeous lilac flowers included.
After playing quite a bit of dress up in my latest outfit posts, wearing my beloved basics again felt like a much awaited return home. I’ve expressed my love for simplicity time and time again, both here on the blog, and in my day to day conversations about fashion and personal style, and while I am aware that most people would have added and added to this minimal look of mine, I was happy to complement it with a few whispers of color and not much else.
Happy Monday, everyone! Hope you’ve had a great start of the week. As promised, I am back with a new post, one that feels like a step back in time, one that’s colorful, spring-ish and super-dainty.
Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale.
Or we choose to create our own fairytale moments, on windy afternoons, when the sun is hiding and everything grows quiet, when the seasons collide and you can sense a hint of winter and a whisper of spring finally getting to saying their goodbyes.
You can do anything but not everything.
I can’t believe how these little words manage to perfectly describe my life as of lately. There used to be a time when I wanted to do it all, and I remember managing just fine, but maybe that’s because I wasn’t doing much, or perhaps I was doing way less. These days time’s a struggle. And looking around me, I notice I’m not the only one finding it slip thought my fingers.
