*Plays Selena Perez while dancing in high waist flare pants and sunglasses indoors.* No, this is not a meme, this is my 2018 summer!

So where do flare pants // READ MORE…

Isn’t it great when staples become trends? When what regular people wear all.the.time. becomes ‘the look’ you know fashion’s either at a loss, OR finally onto something.

No matter how great a woman dresses up and grooms herself, something always feels missing if she’s not wearing jewellery. Sure, there’s a certain kind of minimalist coolness and getting-rid-off-clutter-process in rocking little-to no jewellery, but – I do believe a pair of earrings, or a ring can go a long way. I stand proof of turing from a damn jewellery circus to a minimalist lover if not for the love per se, than at least for necessity reasons. Aka… to not scratch and jiggle too much around my newborn baby girl. At the end of the day I love jewellery. And while mI’n not // READ MORE…

I know… vanity is a big sin of mine, so kill me for always wanting to look nice and put together. Yet I can’t help but ask myself what does that really mean?
