denim for summer

denim2

May I introduce you to my new denim skirt? I already mentioned in another article (here) that I was going to get one myself and here we go. You can’t imagine how much summer makes me happy. I have the feeling that it’s way easier to get dressed during this time. Skirts, shorts, blouses, tanktops, sandals, cropped tops and so on, everything is possible! I have never been a big fan of skirts in general but this classic denim piece might have got me into it. Lately I’ve been obsessed with all kinds of skirts and started off trying different things. I’m wearing it together with a sleeveless light blue blouse, Aldo cross sandals and the Valentino black lockbag.

Another fact I like about summer is that if you have made it to a certain skin tone, all the colours just match. Try to go a bit crazy with your makeup too. I guarantee you, it feels so good! I went for the Kiko smart lip pencil in coral.

It hasn’t been my first outfit post in these Max Mara pants. But I’m sure you know the feeling after you’ve done something and suddenly you know you should have done it the other way! That’s how I felt. But I think that in fashion it’s not about having the newest pieces that just went straight from the runway to the stores. It’s more about reinventing and mix-matching differently than the day before. And let’s be honest, who has got the money for these expensive pieces or simply to get new stuff every day? Surely not a student like me.. I felt like putting a white top together with my Max Mara lovies which makes the look softer than with the peachy blouse I put on in Rome (last look here).

Espadrilles

Valentino Espadrilles

I call them the shoes of the upcoming season. You can’t walk by a shop without spotting some espadrilles in the window. Their popularity gets bigger every year and with good reason. So I have to say that a pair of them is a Must-Have for everyone. They make the perfect match to every look. If it’s a summer dress or simply combined with jeans, there isn’t a way you can’t wear them. Think of these words next time you go shoe-shopping and now get inspired by some personal favorites of mine. On the top : Valentino

shirts as skirts

SASK 1

The time is over when one clothing piece had its one way to be worn. Shirts are no longer simply shirts but found their way to the lower part of the body. You actually don’t even need to buy a matching belt, just wrap around the sleeves and voilà, done!
