Metallic Love

Mmmmmmmkaaaaay, so it's been 3 weeks since I posted anything. Seriously didn't mean to go on a blog holiday, it just kind of happened. Well, I mean life happened. Quite a lot has been happening, and in the evenings and weekends when I usually devote time to work on the blog I've either been to knackered to do anything but watch 6 episodes of Dexter in a row on Netflix whilst eating a takeway curry, or I've been celebrating this, that, or the other. I've had a blast nonetheless, and amazing things are on the way, both in my professional life, as well as personal. I'm starting a new chapter in my life that I am so grateful for, and also, tattadadaaa, I'm moving house. Or rathermore, I'm moving in with a boy. A boyfriend type of boy. Scaaaary thought, but also very lovely, and one that I would have never predicted to happen a year ago. Funny how in your head you have your own plans for life, but then life throws your plans back in your face and makes its own plans. Sometimes they are for the better, sometimes for the worse. These occurrences, I'm sure will be of the first kind.

Anyway, I'm quitting my blabbering (that did feel really good though, just typing away some of the thoughts that are running through my head all the time. The act and sound of typing on a keyboard is just so therapeutical), and posting this quick outfit we must have shot about exactly 3 weeks ago but I've just had it hanging around on my desktop, yelling and waving at me. The black waistcoat was another ZARA sale find, like the metallic Vans sneakers. I've made a recent discovery that I'm really, REALLY, into metallic and glittery shoes. Take note everyone who's been wondering what to get me for Christmas this year.

Pop of Pink & White Blazer

Hi lovelies! Hope everyone is fit and well. My head is filled with a thousand different thoughts that are bouncing around like ping pong balls so I'm having a bit of a hard time concentrating on anything specific today, and as a consequence I'm a bit all over the place. Apologies in advance if I will bump into any of you today, I am not on my A-game today. I also can't wrap my head around the fact that we're a good way into July already. The summer sale and festival season seem to agree with the fact that it is truly July I think. Guess I'd better believe them. Anyway, I kinda really, really liked this outfit. The white blazer and the pink bag were both sale finds from ZARA. I'm still quite surprised I actually made it out alive from there, people are not nice when it comes to sales. Not nice at all. Oh well, I got mine, and this new track from Lemaitre featuring Jennie A is making me wanna dance, let's all toast to celebrate survival from the sale maze.

White on Black on Black

The thing I love about 21st century fashion is that anything goes. Fanny packs, tennis socks in Birkenstocks, men in dresses - you name it, and I guarantee you someone out there can Pull - It - Off. I think it will be the defining fashion element in the early decades of our century, just like the flare jeans + blazer combo in the '70s, and the velour track suit with big hair in the '80s defined what fashion was. If anything, combining uninteresting pieces in an interesting, and most of all, new way, is something that's definitely going to leave it's mark in history on the page where they talk about 21st century fashion. I personally love combining dressy items with commonplace pieces, like here with my (what-I-call) dressy flared pants and my (what-I-call) commonplace Converse sneakers. Albeit my black Allstar's have a bit of sparkle on them, I like the contrast it creates between the two pieces.

Top // Zara (also love this and this from New Look)
Pants // H&M (similar from Asos here)
Shoes // Converse All Star Low Black Glitter
Sunglasses // Prada Minimal Baroque
Ring // Yves Saint Laurent Arty
