So far I'm just enjoying my summer holidays, and I admit I've been doing that by staying home a lot and just by being laid-back. So naturally, I didn't feel like it would be appropriate for today's outfit to be something really preppy or formal, or look like it requires a lot of effort. That's just not me at the moment. But it is totally me to try and make every day just a tad bit more fabulous and to simply look my best as much and as often as I can. That doesn't mean one has to suit up everyday, what it means is that one always looks put together - like you have your life together, you're organized and you're being productive. It just gives off the best impression I can think of, especially when you're meeting someone for the first time (not necessarily the impression that suiting up gives).
By the way, have you noticed my new babies? And by babies I mean my blush Puma x Rihanna fur slides. After going to that Rihanna concert, I rapidly turned from just a casual Rihanna fan to a complete die-hard and obsessed fangirl. I've wanted to get the creepers (her suede Puma sneakers) for along time, but when I saw these slides in the shop I had to get them instead. I also saw the camo creeper, the new shade that she just released of her sneakers, and at first I thought that they were so ugly until a few days later when I saw a picture of someone wearing them on Instagram and I utterly fell in love with them... and regretted not even trying them on :'(
I love the shoes, they're the perfect pair for a laid-back vibe and their color adds some movement to any neutral basic outfit. It's what I mean by saying I try looking my best all the time, but not by dressing overly formal. Who wears slippers like these in public? No one does. Which means that whenever I put them on I just feel like the queen of fashion and style, because I'm not even trying hard, I literally woke up and slid these on.
In fall I want to try and wear them with socks, like that classic Puma kind, because I see pictures like that everywhere, and there is something so cool about how effortless, but still different it looks compared to everyone wearing sneakers.
As for the rest of the outfit I decided to go for casual summery shorts, ones that almost look like a skirt, and a pale pink knit cardigan that is extremely comfy and also adds to the mix of patterns and textures, without overpowering anything. As for my hair, I originally started curling it, from the bottom layer up, as always, when I saw that the messy bun that I had just made in order to hold the top layer of hair while I curl underneath actually looks pretty cute, so I just decided to leave it like that. It is a laid-back outfit after all!
I hope your week has been going great so far, I will write again soon!
