A classic summer look for me: striped top and shorts with sneakers. I think this is the first time I post an outfit with this striped top in beige, it’s a great alternative to the always classic but sometimes too repetitive navy stripes. They are just as austere and versatile. To finish the outfit my summer bag, my Longchamp Le Pliage.
I’m wearing: Ray-Ban classic wayfarer sunglasses (get them HERE), A.P.C top and shorts, Superga sneakers (get them HERE) and Longchamp Le Pliage bag (get it HERE).
I’m updating really late today because I had a very busy day! My friend Omar came to visit from Stockholm so I spent the day with him. It was such an awfully hot day it’s unbearable, can’t wait for cooler days!
I’m wearing: Ray-Ban wayfarer sunglasses (get them HERE), Liberty for J.Crew shirt, American Apparel skirt, A.P.C wedges and Reed Krakoff bag (get it HERE).
I’m starting to hate summer this week, the heat is UNBEARABLE with capital letters, yes because it is! I really hate it when it gets to this point where you can’t live without air conditioner but can’t live with it because you end up sick. I miss spring or even fall so so much, really how simple is it to just wear jeans sneakers and a shirt?
Today some inspiration: Isabel Marant’s pre fall collection. This is how I want to dress every day, in between season’s simple, comfortable clothes. I love all the outfits here, have already taken some ideas from these pictures, you can say I love them 99% the only 1% are those Stan Smith exact replica sneakers. Really is that necessary to copy something exactly,exactly the same? Sure they are having their success but some variation could be nice. I am not a big fan of Stan Smith’s really, I feel there are so many more alternatives, of very similar designs of a much more elegant all white sneaker. Take for example Common Projects sneakers, or Saint Laurent. Yes they are more expensive, but less trendy, in fact not trendy at all. I know some of you are big fans of Stan Smith sneakers and I hope you won’t kill me for what I just wrote, but this is the way I see it.

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.
