Missing in action, that's what I've been, but here's an update...

Current mood: Moderately happy, "busy", somewhat anxious, always hungry, staying cosy and still chasing dreams.  
Current sound: Sorority Noise 
Current faves: This cheap yellow sunglasses I grabbed from H&M, a sunny weather with a nice cool breeze, lovely long naps, these uber comfy bottoms from 5 Preview, 5 Preview, cheese twists, cold brewed coffee, RuPaul's drag race, Hosico cat (the best celebrity cat of instagram), my new slightly short hair that's not apparent in this photos as they were taken in the beginning of spring, a good matcha dessert or drink, etc. 

New posts are pending, so keep your eyes peeled my friends.

Enjoy your Sunday!





Hair Talk

a long-awaited snip 

... and a long-awaited update. If you haven't guessed already, I gave my dehydrated monochromatic locks a fresh cut quite recently. I had a love and hate relationship with my past hairstyle. I initially planned to say goodbye and break my sour commitment with all the platinum strands of that interesting hair-do. Long hair is something I resent. However, I was stuck with trying to figure out what look I wanted to go for without ruining the already dry and dying strands I had to brush through every single day.

After a long and a very serious talk with myself (as you do), I decided to look for a stylist and came across KT, the sweetest gal hairdresser ever. After a few or do I say a lot of precise snips here and there, the new(ish) me happened.





Inhale & Exhale

I am feeling absolutely zen under the sharp light and shadows offered by this lovely springy weather. Inhaling and exhaling the charm of it all, you know... while it lasts.

One thing that makes clothes interesting to me is the way they transform your body. This oversized sweater from 5 Preview features unusual contemporary cuts and shape. As a 5ft something, I often choose to wear humungous clothing - huge is perpetually good to me (I think?). Oversized outfits either drowns you or elongates you but this fleecy jumper definitely gives a 'limbs-extending illusion' (ha). Also, isn't it just cool to find your jumper telling you to relax? It's a befitting item of clothing made for me for sure.

Hope you enjoy your Monday. There's still a long week approaching. Don't forget to breathe!

The World Is Yours

Swedish brand, 5 Preview isn't new to this blog. The brand has become one of my most adored European labels. I picked a bunch of items from their  SS17 State of Mind collection . Matching sets are items I find a lot of fun (or easy) to style so I had to get my hands on the 'Ella' jacket and trousers. A polished look with a mix of cosy, a style that always strikes me, is what the Ella combo this set gives off. I paired them with a white tee to keep it simple, an embroidered socks reminding you 'the world is yours' for that quirky detail, trainers for comfort and a snazzy coloured sunglasses to see the world differently (intense saturation. ha!).
