August. Mid-summer. A hint of nostalgia mixed with anticipation. There’s still a bit of the sunny season left to enjoy but autumn is so, so close you can almost feel it. I love this time of the year, even though dressing for it doesn’t always come easy. August is pretty wonderful.
I love words and amongst them simplicity is easily one of my favorites. Its essence is deeply rooted in every single aspect of my life, wardrobe included. And while I am not a huge fan of slogan clothes, not for myself to be more precise, there are messages even I can’t resist.
You know it’s summer when you suddenly find yourself spending more time out & about than at home, and when you’d rather sit on a terrace and sip on your ice coffee rather than spend time in front of the computer writing your thoughts away.
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.
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.
