You know what they say, you can take the girl out of an all-black-outfit, but you can’t take the all-black-outfit out of the girl. The girl in question being moi. So you can imagine I’ve gone to pretty great lengths for today’s blogpost – wearing all-white.
Let me tell you something though: I LOVED IT. And for this I blame three people: my mom (for giving me my amazing skin tone that just looks so good against white. ‘sup mom), my friend Julie, cause you see her and I made a pact (I mean she did, but I’m just tagging along, which she’ll probably realise as she reads this. Hola back if you do girl!), that we’ll be draping ourselves in white for a long time after returning from holiday, and my friend Florina, my badass photographer who’s brilliance and talent have been soooo missed, who’s always telling me to wear white, cause it photographs so great.
What better way to respond to all these fab fab fab women than by following up on their advice. Something I don’t do. Like, I’m that girl that throws a great advice out the window and takes a bad one on any day, and twice on Sunday.
I guess somebody’s growing up here.
Well… I don’t know about that, what I do know is that while I’m busy having a blast in my unicorn world, refusing to deal with unwanted realities, something very funny happened: time passed. That little sucker’s got no patience I swear. So I fell. I fell hard. Actually I crashed along with the temperatures, and in the process it hit me that usually when autumn comes, humans start wearing long sleeves. You know, jackets, sweaters, sweatshirts, or blazers.That sort of stuff.
So, for no other reasons than being cold I am joining the human lot, and leaving my summer unicorns behind for now. Also, fashion. Okay, fashion has a huge role in this. Hello layering!
One of the perks of my job is being gifted with so many clothes, such as this nude beautiful draped blazer I’m wearing today from Choies. It’s the perfect piece to have for autumn. It’s light, it goes great with almost anything (especially white outfits or tops), you can wear it with long sleeves or roll the sleeves up when it’s warm, and the best part is it’s not a classic blazer but the trendy draped style that’s been happening for a while now.
I was never one to give in to this draped blazer look, but I’ll just swallow my tongue on this one: I really love it. It makes an otherwise classic or sometimes boring jacket or blazer look more sophisticated. It gives personality. AND versatility, because you see – it works brilliant for office, for more professional looks, but also for casual styles, or… in this case to cover myself up from windy cold degrees, strangers’ stares, my insecurities, that sort of shit.
I also love the colour, which too is a still massive trend – nudes and whites and browns have a certain luxury to them, which I adore. So to paint the picture perfect (or so I thought anyway) I went for the whole white-nude look + my golden chunky necklace, and for one day I did not miss my all-black-outfits.
What I’ve learned from this #OOTD is that 1). sometimes stepping out of your comfort zone is pretty liberating and rewarding (I’m hugging myself right now), and 2). there’s a reason the 2000s should never be back in fashion, so… note to self: get yo’self a pair of more updated (to put it politically correct as to not forever destroy my ego) white skinny jeans with a high waist. Or just a pair of beautifully tailored high waisted pants. With a major emphasis on *high waist*. I mean if you’re gonna do the white looks, you may consider being sartorially updated. Yeah. The talk-to-myself-happy-hour is closed now.
In case you’re not already too bored, pounding your head against the wall, thinking of clicking away, Imma let the pics roll, while you scroll.
Learning from others’ mistakes is a true act of maturity (that’s probably the reason why it’s never worked for me), so… to avoid falling too hard into fall, sans any blazers, I’ll just leave the link to my look below. In case you wanna get the same draped blazer style.
Peace out ladies and gents. Have a great weekend, and remember to be good! And if you can’t be good be safe!
