i will never forget that one gilmore girls episode... it was rory's first day at that expensive, private school and lorelai, her mom, was supposed to come with her. but unfortunately, she overslept and couldn't pick up the special suit she planned to wear that day. anyway, she wore what she could first grab from her closet: denim cutoffs & cowboy boots. she got hit upon by another dad from the school, her mom & the headmaster of course thought it was a terrible joke.
kind of the same thing happened to me the other day. i attended a parent teacher meeting in this outfit above except that it was exactly the outfit i planned to wear. i am lucky to live in a generation where everything goes. but sometimes even in these modern times, i feel weird being stared upon by other moms or people (who probably are still stuck in the 20s) in general because i dress up like i do. if there is such a thing, what is mommy style anyway? should i wear my dress suit (sans bra? yes it´s my preferred way) to parent-teacher meetings? should i dress up differently because i have a 4 year old kid? should i wear boring sunglasses just because? HMMM. it´s my party and i´ll live it like i want to.
i am finally feeling better, yay! probably because winter seems to be back?
that moment when i finally decided to hide all my winter gear in the back of my closet, it started getting chilly again...
anyway, can we talk about the rad-acity (haha, i love making up my own words) of these leggings?
and no matter how hot the weather is gonna be, this leather jacket is staying in the front row of my summer wardrobe. no matter what.
it is kinda like wine. just gets better every after wear. AHHH
PS: just a quick reminder about the O'neill x Fashiolista Contest that i participated, where one of you can win an exotic trip with your favorite blogger or a 500 euro shopping spree.. would really love to go to hawaii with one of you!
my hay fever has definitely started along with spring thus the lack of posts, so sorry. :(
you remember this post?
here´s the full look!
it´s a look i created in collaboration with Mango and Fashiolista.
if you fancy 500 euros to spend at Mango please vote for your favorite blogger here!
i would appreciate it was me. :)
good luck on winning!
we´ve been extremely blessed this weekend, weatherwise.
my iphone app promised me 20 degrees but it was about 30 degrees at least.
went out in jeans and a light jacket and had to go back home to change into this dress.
i wish i was in palm springs right now though to enjoy coachella and rock these cute floral sunglasses!
this dress + ray bans + these sandals remind me of carrie's outfit in the intro of sex and the city film part two.
though empire state of mind wouldn´t be exactly the soundtrack of this look, it still feels carrie- like.
i hope you like!
.... well, NOT QUITE.
i hope you´re all enjoying the weekend as i am!
i will keep this short.. this is by far one of my favorite looks/ photos in this blog.
HIGH STREET IN IT'S FINEST i tell ya.
dries van noten, celine & saint laurent for less.
you know that i love me my designer staples like this bag for example, but i simply can´t justify paying over a 1000 euros for silk pants (which i will probably wear like 5 times max) when i can buy them at Mango for 1/100th of the price. or the iconic saint laurent hat that i almost purchased before i realized 700 euros for a friggin hat is just too much.
OKAY, i know that i am not skinny. never was, never will be.
i love me my burgers, steak and cakes so much. so why show you these pictures, right?
because, i might be able to bring one of you guys (who votes for my look) to one exotic country (i heard they´re choosing between Brazil, Hawaii or Santa Cruz) for a styling trip with O'neill next summer!
you want to hear a funny story? i haven´t owned a bikini up until i was 20. we swam with our shirts & shorts on in the philippines.
so it is still weird for me to go full two piece even in my "thinner" days.
long story short, if you´re up for it, i would love to spend next summer with you!
imagine that you're 19, fell in love and got married to a german, flew your ass all the way to germany not speaking a single word deutsch, leaving everything you have behind in the philippines. now imagine, you're getting divorced after a year, lost all your faith in the good in people, found a great new boyfriend, moved together and got a job to pay the rent and credit card bills. now you're 27, you speak german, travel around the world and have a super cheeky but smart three year old baby boy!
hi, welcome to my super fun world!
