It’s been a long time since I last wore my charcoal denim skirt, so I decided to take her out today! This skirt is one of my eldest garments of clothing that I still keep from my “poor student days”. After I graduated from college and started working I started building my wardrobe from scratch with good quality core pieces, but this skirt remained.
I’m surprised by its outstanding quality and versatility. Another characteristic of this skirt is its uniqueness due to the fact that it was altered by me. Originally it was knee length and unfortunately that length does not suit me, so I adapted it for my body. At the time when I saw it online I was completely aware of her potential so I purchased the skirt with the though of transforming it. Fortunately it worked out perfectly, but I try not to do that much as there are garments that due to its design wont be suitable for a transformation.
I’m wearing: Ray-Ban classic wayfarer sunglasses, Comme des Garçons Play t-shirt, American Apparel skirt, Chanel flats and bag.
My late-spring/early-summer go-to outfit. Long sleeved shirt with shorts. The shirt I am wearing today is hands down my favorite long sleeved shirt. I have said before how big a fan I am of striped tops, well after that my heart belongs to basic striped shirts. They are a nice, fun alternative to a white shirt, (a subtle print always is) and can be worn with absolutely anything. I got mine last fall on my trip to L.A at J Crew and it has been one of my favorite garments ever since!
Now this exact same shirt is no longer available (it is part of the 2013 fall collection), but since this style “the boy shirt” is a classic on J Crew that keeps being reinvented every season a very very similar one (slightly darker print) is available for purchase HERE.
I’m wearing Ray-Ban sunglasses, J Crew shirt, Wood Wood shorts, A.P.C wedges and Sofia Coppola for Louis Vuitton handbag.
Sunglasses: we all need them, want them and use them. No matter your sex, age and size sunglasses are a must-have accessory for all. When spring comes we all get the sunglasses bug and start looking for a new pair to increase our collection, so I decided to make a summary of my favorite sunglasses divided by the main categories.

Today I’m wearing one of my favorite tops ever by one of my favorite brands, my APC sailor top. As i’ve said before a number of times I am a big fan of “sailor accents” on clothing. This particular top is so lightweight and so heat friendly I wear it non stop during spring and summer.
I’m wearing: Ray-Ban classic wayfarer sunglasses, A.P.C sailor top, Claudie Pierlot jeans, Topshop flats and Louis Vuitton Sofia Coppola handbag.
