Oh, some kind of feminine city outfit ! You could almost believe you’re not on the right blog, it’s been so long since we’ve seen something like this around here !
Even for me, it feels kinda weird to see myself like this.
It’s actually kinda strange, because a year ago, my daily outfits looked much more like this, with lots of black, skinny clothes and a slight feminine touch each time.
Today, I need comfort and casual, so my boyfriend jeans and sneakers have become my best friends. I don’t know why I feel like black and casual are not something that go together.
But I must admit that it feels good to see that feminine and more classy touch some times 😉
FINALLY ! WE’RE THERE ! WE’RE OFFICIALLY IN SUMMER !
Please, let me not be the only one that hysterical once we’ve passed this day ?!
I could almost smell the iodine and feel the sand stuck in my butt crack just thinking about it.
So, what could be better than this outfit that reunites all of my summer’s essentials, those that will definetely get inside my suitcase this August, to celebrate this holy day ? Nothing, I tell you ! Here goes.
Essential number 1 : The kimono. To be perfectly sincere with you, I would not have bet on it. I couldn’t imagine myself wearing one, but I finally gave in to this one, which made me change my mind. It’s so perfect for summer, it’s very light and so perfect for that famous little summer breeze we all know about, but you won’t fry to death if you keep it on your shoulders when the sun’s too hot.
Essential number 2 : The lace top. Is there anything better than white lace for summer ?! I mean really ?! It’s light, it’s white, it’s see-through, it’s pretty, you can put it over your bathing suit and keep working on your hairnet tan too, and if you even find yourself wondering through a golden wheat field wearing it you can actually pretend you’re shooting a First Aid Kit music video. What more could you want ?!
Essential number 3 : The boyfriend jeans. Yes, summer is not EXCLUSIVELY made out for shorts, so it’s important you have real jeans inside your suitcase. And, apart from my brother, WHO wears skinny jeans that sticks to your skin when it’s 30° outside ?! Mad people, I tell you. Boyfriend jeans are perfect in this case, for they’re super comfy, not too tight, and most of the time holed, which is important cause you can never underestimate the power of ventilation in the summer !
Essential number 4 : Leopard sandals. After 10 months rotting inside your perpetual boots and sneakers, your feet can FINALLY air out and enjoy the view of the floor ! I’ve been wanting to get myself this kind of sandals for some time now, and I’m so happy about it, my feet are too ! Only problem is that it’s a bit harder to put on than Birkenstocks. But being fashion girls and all, it’s a secret rule that we NEVER stop to the practical side of things, right ?! 😉
Essential number 5 : Accessories. It’s always important, but even more in summer, where your body is being badly treated (heat, sun, salt, all of these bad things we just love anyway…). A good pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes from the UV, a small and pretty bag to carry solar protections and a bottle of water (hydrating is extra important !), and of course, some ethnic pieces of jewel you’ll obviously lost in the sand at some point and that will make you loose weight in a heartbeat while you turn all of the beach sand over in the measly hope you’ll find them one day.
Essentials, I tell you 😉
Between age 13 and 18, I only wore Converse.
In highschool, I had a pair of classic high top black Converse. I wore them every single day, to my mother’s great dismay. I’ve worn them to a thread, like pretty much all of my beloved clothes. They were holed everywhere, and I kept on wearing them, with my toe hanging outside from the rubber front. I just couldn’t to throw them away.
Right before, in junior high, I had two pairs of Converse : one turquoise blue, and the other sky blue. I wore them in a turnover, and I sometimes wore one foot with the other so I had different shades of blue on each foot. With orange or pink socks.
Thinking about this now makes me wonder how did I dare to go out wearing this, despite my extreme shyness back then. I had such an experimental style, I wore above the knee green and purple striped socks, short sleeved t-shirt above long sleeved ones, suspenders, berets, mits, all kind of weird things (true facts, I have pictures I’ll show you one day !).
It’s funny how we change in life. Growing up I managed to open up, I’m not shy anymore, but I would never dare to go out weirdly dressed out like I did a few years ago, except maybe on Carnival’s day. But really, “weirdly” is only in your head. Back then, I thought it was pretty much normal to dress this way I didn’t even think about it. Just like today, I’m not thinking about going out wearing shorts, a sweater, glitter socks and new Converse, white and low this time, the logical consequence of my personnal evolution ! In a year time, I’ll probably check this outfit out wondering “but why ?!”.
But today, I felt like wearing this, and I like it, so that’s what matters. Although, it would be nice if you liked it too ! 😉
