Spring 2014: Outfit 30

Today i’m in a grannish mood! I know my late grandmother would be in love with this outfit in fact this is pretty much what she always wore: white shirts, navy skirts and black mid heels with a black bag. She was one of the most refined/stylish women I have ever met and unconsciously she became a great influence to me, specially fashion-wise.

I don’t think we become aware at times how our surroundings specially our family and the way we are brought up influences our taste and vision in fashion but as I have become older I have realized how those things play a big part, wanted or not. No matter how much I experimented with fashion as a teenager I always come back to resemble the women in my family and how they dressed: sober, classic and as natural as possible.

I’m wearing: Ray-Ban sunglasses, The Kooples top, COS skirt, Jimmy Choo kitten heels, and Chanel bag.

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.

Today i’m wearing my new favorite sweatshirt, which was given to me as a gift recently, nothing fancy at all but I just can’t stop loving it, I don’t know why. I guess it reminds me of my childhood/teenage days when I used to wear lots of stuff from Gap. I still keep some of those garments and sometimes use those old t-shirts as my running tees. I like how they still make very similar designs to the ones they did back then.

I’m wearing: Ray-Ban sunglasses, GAP sweatshirt, American Apparel skirt, Superga sneakers and Sofia Coppola for Louis Vuitton handbag.

So I’v been wearing my Birkenstock for the most part inside the house as my summer slippers for the past two months. I love them with jeans and trousers but I was never really sold on them with shorts or skirts, and since the heat is so unbearable here in South America to even consider wearing pants, I didnt really consider them for daily outfits until now. I was getting dressed and last thing I was changing was my shoes when I looked in the mirror and loved how the look with the outfit, so I just left them on!

Im wearing: Ray-Ban sunglasses, Club Monaco shirt, The Kooples skirt, J Crew panama hat, Birkenstock sandals and Chanel bag.
