Black & yellow, black & yellow...

This was supposedly posted 2 days ago, but my wisdom tooth decided to seek some attention. The pain left me unexcited about life so instead, I decided to watch Star Wars, eat lots of potatoes, argue with people and listen to Mac Demarco.

All the cool kids have been sporting these half zipped pullovers for quite some time now. I found this waterproof/rain jacket in my wardrobe, though ugh I have no idea what brand it is. Paired with all black pieces, this outfit makes me feel very Skepta. (If you don't know, click the link. Now you know! hehe)

Anyway, I hope you all are enjoying the holidays! Can't wait for that turkey (or roast chicken as we don't appreciate turkey as much, but I'll update you on that)

A message in a bottle

Today, at this digital era, messages are spread and shared via emails, text messages and other various forms of social media. I have always been interested in snail mails. Communicating through the post is somewhat heartwarming and special.

The girls from Birambi sent me this silver necklace packed in a little test tube with the loveliest note (ugh, cutest thing ever!).

Birambi creates these minimal and cool gifts such as jewelry, posters, bath salts, tea and other quirky little gifts. The brand has "message in the bottle" as a concept. Their aim is to connect people through these personalised gifts. Each of these products comes with personal messages from the sender.

During this month of giving and receiving, I suggest you guys to head over their website. Their items are special and reasonably priced. They are the cutest and are perfect Christmas gifts or fillers. You won't be let down. I can promise you that!

Somewhere between black and blue

"Style is the reflection of one's mood." You have most likely heard this many times before.

Well, "navy" has been the recent mood.  My italicised description of navy is the literal ambiance of my life presently.  As I've got into this ensemble four times in the past couple of weeks, I may have become this dark suited sad being - so deep, so dark. Although, really and truly, I just want comfortability. Zero is the quantity of effort put into this matter.

We get caught up on a heap of things daily. Whether that's work, play or whatever.  Sometimes, it's only right to be comfortable and relaxed. We don't need try so hard on everything. You know!  It's just as simple as being effortless or casual in terms of clothing.  I'm fairly sure you've heard these before too... "Less is more" or "Effortless is chic".

So, loosen up!

One random day in Soho

A few weeks ago, when cropped tops are still appropriate to wear, I strolled around Soho with the gals, got caffeinated and stuffed my face with Mexican (which unfortunately I don't have photos of).  It all seems so long ago. Now, cropped tops aren't as ideal, but I wouldn't say the same about this gnarly Primark outerwear, Soho Grind, guacamole and burritos.

In other news, I am trying to get my mojo back in terms of filling/updating those categories (see sidebar) - more cool and interesting things from Le-Visualiste, I hope. Have a lovely week, keep warm and see you soon!

Pantone® 729 C something or  just you know... Pantone® Camel & Olive related

Who doesn't like an easy and very accessible clothing? I believe, no one. This is why I am so fond of this "utilitarian" ensemble. With a pair overalls/dungas, you don't even have to try anymore. In actual fact, dungarees are comfortable overgarments invented for protection whilst in the mode of working (I mean you already know that). Casual mingling, being chic along with every cool stuff you do these days are other things they're made for. So, I say, we should wear more dungarees!

White Canvas

"And I know when the white sneaks bling"

Yeah. Ever since I got my hands on a pair Old Skool's, I pondered for a while whether I'm ready to stroll with a white canvas or not. It just so happened that Zalando had a blinging sale - at only £27.50 - it only really meant one thing. Without hesitation, it went straight to the basket and whoala it's here. 

I secretly have this paranoia - very cautious with dirt/puddles.  Though, that's only for now. I'm pretty sure I'll eventually turn bad & dirty (lol). I'll get over it soon enough. 

On another short but gnarly note: the cozy mood is still on.  This long fur blanket (ish) "gilet" can wrench me from pimp to homeless chic. I do not even mind at all. 

Hashtag team cozy!

Going for walks with my 'yungen' Carmela

That is our thing now, it's always been our thing. We are grannies at heart (just a slight). We geared up in the same vibe. Here are the nearly identical attires we've chosen to sport to enjoy such pleasant march in an old little town somewhere in Essex. We like our head gears and cozy gummy shoes which are a.k.a trainers/sneakers. The march would not be complete if there aren't no pit stops for coffee, snacks and shopping. Coffee and grubs always have been the topic in Le-visualiste. I should probably start sharing snaps of tasty foods and drinks again. Whenever that commence, I'm certain that you will be seeing this sib of mine again. We love our shots (espresso, sometimes other things) and nibbles.
