This is pretty much how I look if on a regular work-day. ALWAYS wearing denim shorts – I could dedicated a book to them – a small heel, if it’s not a pair of Converse, and a statement top. Usually a summer-sweater, because with a functioning airconditioning, my home-office is nice and crisp, but this was definitely NOT the sweater I was wearing when my airconditioning was NOT running! Which is kind of the story of the past weeks, and I’m sorry for bothering you with it, but truly, the heat almost drove me CRAZY! I seriously showered twice per day at least, got itchy heat-rashes all over my body, and almost couldn’t smile anymore… It was really really bad, and I was amazing by the intense crappy service we got from multiple companies, who were there to help, but in the end had us waiting for over three weeks. IN THE MIDDLE OF A VERY HOT SUMMER… All the rage… but the problem is solved since yesterday, and these photos were taken before we had trouble wit the AC. When I could still smile, big! And when a sweater was just perfect for a day behind my laptop… See more
Without having found out exactly why, I feel extremely pulled towards 1960s/1970s street style photography lately. Maybe it’s the influence of this era that we are seeing in so many of the current collections – Gucci for example – or the fact that I’m living with someone who loves searching the internet looking for our next investment – I realize buying art and photography sounds a bit pretentious, but you have to start somewhere, and we are obviously starting small – but in any case I’m loving it. And it’s not only the fashion that mark this time-frame what makes me obsessively hover on Pinterest, but the type of films that were used – which brings those magical colorings in the photos – and the way photographers worked with natural light, and the roughness of the cities back then – the contrast of the beauty in those places – is what I’m intrigued by.
I present to you: My absolute/ultimate/total relax outfit… Nothing better than loose-cut denim – preferably as a one-piece – an oversized shirt, and a pair of slippers. Totally ready to cruise through the day. Although, this outfit is way to warm right now. Cause no matter where I go, New York or Toronto, it’s BLOODY HOT out there. So I’m mostly spending my time indoors, oh wait, no, our air-condition is broken, so even for indoor-life this outfit is too warm. Don’t worry, we are not a naked-house, we wear decent outfits, move slowly, and embrace every single breeze we can get through the front-door… So, going back to cruisin’, best thing to do when your AC is broken?
There are a thousand reasons to wear this Chloe Rainbow top, and yet I’m not wearing it enough. Why? I couldn’t give you any good reason why I’m not LIVING in it… Gosh, I don’t know… Maybe because it’s too pretty to wear? Do you know that feeling? When you have something so beautiful, you rather look at it every morning in your wardrobe, than putting it on… Such a shame, I know, but it happens too often! Maybe I should focus less on the many reasons why I should be wearing it all the time, and start wearing it…
With the summer wedding season in full swing I thought it would be fun to share my first “summer-wedding-look” from a few weeks back when we traveled all the way to the South of France for one of our dear friends’ wedding. And with a garden pre-party in mind, I went for the all-garden-look and went green, floral, and with simple messy hair and big sunnies. Not underdressed (important) but definitely not overdressed – we don’t want to steal away any thunder from the beautiful bride of course. I think that the ChloeSpring/Summer collection, but also their Pre-Fall is incredibly suitable for any outdoor wedding occasion.
