Some people think I don’t accessorize. Actually I do, well i’ve wanted to for the longest time. The thing is I have been investing in other areas of my wardrobe not really giving accessories the relevance I should.
Also I hadn’t found items I really wanted to invest on, until recently. Honestly I had my eyes set on Hermes, they make the most gorgeous bracelets but on a unexpected trip to Saint Laurent I kind of fell in love with their jewelry line too. Last month while in Stockholm shopping the Midsummer sales with my friend I ran into this item at 50% off, something that shouldn’t been happening since this is really a permanent collection bracelet. Now those things happen with retailers, and it’s better for us customers to encounter bargains not supposed to happen, so I kind of had to have it right away.
What I love most about this bracelet is it has a sort of resemblance to the Hermes “Medor” watch (smallest size) and that is my dream accessory (no longer in production). I like the subtle little touch of “tough” in an outfit, specially when given by an accessory, so soft you can barely notice, to me that reaches true perfection.
Bracelet by Saint Laurent, and you can get this bracelet HERE.
Another almost complete black outfit. What can I say? I love black, and even more wearing it in summer, when most people turn to bright colors and wild prints, I love keeping it dark with navy or black. Of course I also love to keep it comfortable and my Arizona sandals are the best at that!
I know there many haters of these babies and honestly I understand, they are not pretty nor feminine nor masculine…they are somehow a strange undefined type of shoe mostly associated with german tourists, but personally I feel the need to look beyond that and focus on its two biggest assets. One: comfort and two: the unexpected effect they give almost any outfit, they toughen it up a bit, I would even dare to say they spark an outfit making it look fun, without looking flashy and out there. Me, I have a feeling this sandals will go beyond a trend and become a classic, they are already a forgotten classic, they never really disappeared, so it’s not hard to visualize them staying permanently as a comfortable option for summer.
I’m wearing: Ray-Ban wayfarer sunglasses (get them Here), Gap dress, Birkenstock sandals (get them Here) , Longchamp Le Pliage bag (get it Here) and J Crew panama hat (get it Here).
Today I am sick with the flu! I don’t know what happened…sometimes my tiny body can’t deal well with the abrupt temperature changes, and much less with a boyfriend who likes sleeping with the windows open. So I have been home all day with fever and taking some meds to feel better. Hopefully I will get well soon, I wouldn’t mind (on winter) spending the weekend in bed sick, but it’s summer and I had fun plans. No outfit picture for today, instead for those of you who don’t do social media much, this is what i’ve been up to on INSTAGRAM this week. Of course you are welcome to follow me, and comment, I always love hearing from you!
And today I wore my poppies for the first time! Super comfortable for a four inch heels. As you know, I go all black frequently, and today a very hot summer day I wore all black and felt no heat. Proof that there are options of an all black outfit to wear year long. You might also notice a new accessory, for those of you think I don’t accessorize actually I do. I have wanted to, subtly though, but I have wanted for ages, I just did not find the right accessories for me, until just recently. But I will leave that story for a new post where I will tell you all about accessorizing: how I feel about it, how you can do it softly and what my picks of the season are.
I’m wearing: Ray-Ban wayfarer sunglasses (get them Here), Sandro camisole (get a similar one Here), Isabel Marant Etoile skirt, Isabel Marant poppy heels (get them Here), Chanel bag and Saint Laurent bracelet (get it Here).
