One Way, Or Another

I don’t know if it’s fashion overdose or just me searching for new styles everyday but symmetrical clothes started to feel boring lately. Shoulders should be unevenly open, trousers or skirts should be wrapped from one side and anything that resists being asymmetrical should be made into one with knots and irregular wraps. For example, if you only have shirts in your wardrobe and don’t want to pay money on a one shoulder or open shoulder top because you think they’re going to go out of style next year; you just put one arm in and not the other one, wrap the sleeve around your waist and button it below your boobs. In this case it’s a distorted wrap shirt, much better than the good old worker girl style if you ask me. . Black wrap shirt worn as one shoulder Topshop (similar here & here) .

One ToTwoo

I’ve tried many times in the past to keep track of my daily activities, especially because I don’t work out at the gym all the time but rather take long walks during the day as my job schedule isn’t stable and I’m always on the move, but me being me I couldn’t ever stay organized and tossed it out a couple of days later. I can’t even keep up with my skincare routine for one week straight so I need an incentive to keep going with anything. Some things in life you don’t get, some you do. Lucky me, I did get a rather sparkly incentive to accomplish one of my life goals.

The Future Is Female

There’s a special joy to coming back from a month long vacation/visit back home, kind of similar to one you had on Christmas mornings growing up. I spend this whole time with just one luggage of stuff and meanwhile everything I ordered or have been gifted is arriving home, waiting for me to wear one after the other when I come back. Aside from the skirt, everything here is new to my wardrobe and I can’t decide if I like the straw bag more or the best t-shirt I’ve ever owned. I think I’m leaning towards the latter. .

A Conscious Search

It’s been a long while since the last time I went crazy over a piece of clothing I couldn’t initially find and if I remember correctly, that last time I promised myself never to do it again yet here I am, wearing the H&M Conscious mules for which I searched the whole world frantically for two whole months. I checked stores here, then in NY, Paris, Istanbul, Ankara; I asked my hubby to check them in Berlin, Oslo – they were completely sold out everywhere, which is a hint that you should give up on them at that point, but I refused to get that message from the universe. And much like every other dream, this one too came true through eBay and here they are: my slightly overpaid for, fancy mules. The search is over. finally. Thankfully. .

Looking Over The Shoulder

Despite my love for black, which doesn’t even need explanation at this point, I don’t like wearing all black. I actually refrain from wearing all black, I don’t think I have the right hair and skin tone (or Scandinavian cool) to pull it off so you can almost never see me in all black. But it took this off the shoulder sweatshirt from the exclusive Martine Jarlgaard x Byond collection (yeah, it’s a sweatshirt made from a sustainable fabric with open shoulders that you can pull to either side) to make me wear head to toe black in the middle of summer. I tried my usual recipe; white pants, linen pants, denim and then khaki pants but none of them did justice to this top like my classic cut tailored black pants with Converses to tone down the flare. .
