Bittersweet

Maybe fringes are from the last season but I still can't get over them. After all, trends come back, don't they? I'm still stuck on the idea that there are no rules in fashion, so I dress unapologetically like I feel. Today I felt blue. :)

June Crush: Crop Tops

Looking back on past outlooks I can't believe I used to see crop tops as the most useless garments on earth — I thought it was pointless to spend a high amount of money on a tiny piece of material whilst with the same money you could buy the entire top. It kinda made sense, right? I honestly have no idea what changed my mind, but once I started purchasing them I couldn't stop on just a few...

Amplified

The summer feeling revolves around and within me, even though I still have a bunch of exams to take. Until I'm finished with them I'm only left with enjoying the simple, little things of the season, like shorts, icy drinks, the evening breeze, all instead of a salty morning on the beach...Don't miss me 'cause I'll be spamming the internet starting from the end of July.

*Since I can't make the best out of this incredible pool weather I figured I should wear my wishes and feelings on — my hair was my option.

A few days ago I came across one of the most accurate lines I have ever read online: 'Never say never in fashion because you will be wearing <<never>> in two years time'. Here I am now, shooting outfits with chokers around my neck, the things I used to hate the most last summer and judge my friends for wearing. It didn't even took that long to get to me...All I can say is I plead guilty.

May Crush: Embroidery

Embroidered clothes took over my life this month. I asked my mom to borrow me all of her bedecked items and actually watched DIY tutorials. Yet, I'm humble enough to admit that shopping the garments is a much simpler, faster and safer way to insert the embroidery trend in the closet.

Star Dust

Did I ever mention that I love pink? Probably just 100 times before but it doesn't matter, I'll repeat myself. Since this year's color is rose quartz and I have been wearing pink even more shamelessly, I couldn't miss out on these palazzo trousers which resemble 2 of my favorite trends and come with a wide range of advantages, such as coziness, sunscreen for those hot summer days, eye-catchy design etc. I purchased the trousers from Stradivarius and it is probably the first time I am specifying this.

I had received some notices over the time regarding my lack of brand mentions and the messages didn't stop after I started the "similar look links" either. That's why I decided it is time to make clear why I don't mention the exact brands that I'm wearing in my outfit posts, YET. There are two main reasons:

  • most of my clothes are Inditex marked. I don't wear high-end fashion, because I don't have access to the clothes, nor the money for them, yet. Probably 50% of my garments come from Zara, which has the most advantageous clothing value for money, but it doesn't even have a public, international affiliate program. I also love Missguided and Asos for the online shopping part, but I started fancying these names recently, so my wardrobe is not so loaded with their apparel.
  • not all of my garments are branded. I strongly believe you don't have to spend a fortune to dress well. If I like it, I wear it, the tag doesn't define myself, nor my sense of style. Whenever I put the clothing links in my outfit posts I try my best in finding the most accurate matches, but sometimes there just aren't so many options. However, if you would like to know the precise place where I got a certain garment from, you can ask me in the comment section/e-mail me/message me on Instagram or Facebook and I will happily let you know.

Rediscovered

Wearing embroidered clothing when I was little was like putting on a pair of crocs today. Popular demand has not only switched these styles' appreciation level, but also left me feeling regretful about ever blaming bedecked articles. It is definitely a trend worth following.❤️‍

Vibin'

Between essays and classes and personal matters, I completely forgot to publish this outfit, which had remained at the 'draft' stage for about a week now. It wasn't until this afternoon that I realized I hadn't been active on Instagram within the past and I cannot really post a pic until I post on blog. Now timing isn't my strong point (friends know this, sorry guys), but I always manage to make things right somehow (positivity, yaay — I have to keep the vibe alive otherwise I'm gonna go crazy from the lack of sleep and the overconsumption of coffee). So, even though it's a rushed one, I hope you enjoy the outfit post at least half as I enjoy wearing this super nice-comfy-stylish (kind-of) coat. I've been waiting since forever for the temperature to get its s**t together and allow me to wear it.

Bear With Me In London

Even though I spent three days in the overrated London city, I limited my thoughts on this last post of the UK series. I'm beginning to think I should've started with this, but there's no time to go back now.

London vibes are incredible, can't lie on this, you get a dizzy-vibrant-ecstatic feeling, but you have to be careful what you team it up with, because if you stumble upon empathy or spleen it won't be a very pleasing staying. Yet some of the best parts about the place include incredible views from anywhere you stand, inspiration at every step you take, AH-MA-ZING architecture, artsy walls, nice people and a wide range of food. No matter what you look for, you can sure as hell find it in London. Actually, you don't even have to look for it to find it. Just bear with me on this: me and my brother were looking for an affordable place to eat in the heart of the city but instead of going to a fast-food we went to a random underground restaurant which turned out to be a vampire-inspired place. Now I need to mention that an odd, dark, hipster restaurant wouldn't be my normal choice, but the point is that it felt welcoming to be in a place which promotes a (twisted, misunderstood) legend from your motherland. Not to mention that the manager was Romanian, I wonder where the Dracula theme idea came from!

I think we all know how crappy the London weather is, but let me just say my version: it's crappier! In my first day there was some really heavy rain so my mood matched it perfectly after a long walk with the luggage in my hand and a broken umbrella. There wasn't much to do except spending the day at the mall and that's exactly how it went down. My second day meant seeing the posh side of the city which was pretty impressing, but I found more appealing things people don't usually look at, such as doors, walls, random streets or buildings . Due to that revelation, in the last day a friend took us to a wilder side of the city, less polished and more alive. I admit there were more things to gaze at there.

It already passed some time since I had come back home from the UK trip so my mind is pretty made up at this point. London is a nice idea for a weekend break, but I couldn't live my life there, it's too crowded and it looks nicer on the outside. Afterall, a part of me is actually glad it turned out to be this way because now I feel even more excited about Birmingham being my university city choice.
