Aaaaah, July, everyone!
Heart of the summer. The season I hate, even more than getting a haircut.
July is a nice month, though. Because July is my birthday month. Other than that summer is the true enemy. Wanna know why? Because it’s hot. And do you know what the problem with that is? That it’s hot. Plain hot, yet too hot to bare. How do all these celebrities and bloggers “walk” around carelessly, pulling layered outfits off with all this heat? What is this sorcery? And where can I get me some of that?
To get myself to look put together I have to wear like half a top and maybe get some kind of light piece of cloth to cover the bottom Violet. And that put-together phase only lasts for like 10 minutes after I exit my apartment. Because right then and there, boy, do I start to lose my sh*t.
And, by now you’ve probably realized I have pretty much zero interesting things for my intro cause I’m writing this under some real noisy circumstances.
So, for today’s outfit, which I should’ve posted yesterday but was too busy shopping online, I went a bit overboard with layering. But in my defense, I thought it looked cute and it did so we’re good.
The pictures were taken in Uberdooze, one of the newest addictions of this city’s. This place is really “made out of love”, just like its moto promises; multi-sized disco balls, Hindu references, all yet mixed with a minimalistic aura. There’s Archangel Gabriel emitting neon rays and golden plated animals hanging on those pink walls. Pink enhances the desire for the nicest of feelings, love. So, how could you not love this yourself?
I planned the whole outfit around this new bandeau corset I got on ASOS. I wanted to go with the whole classybutalsolowkeybecausevintageshorts look.
The thing is most of us hate wearing anything strapless, because you have to do the
Therefore, tucking the shirt in the bandeau top like this kind of helped me avoid doing this a lot. Nice styling and extra coverage, what’s not to like?
My shirt is a mix of silk and cotton, so, to bare the weather, you can pick a more breathable kind of textile, like cotton or linen.
The rest of the look I kept pretty quiet. Vintage shorts and something quite new to me; flat mules. I used to hate this type of sandal, the slipper-type. Eventhough I love a good heeled shoe, lately I’ve come to the conclusion that you don’t have to be the typical kind to be truly chic. These spoke to me once I spotted them and I assure you it turns out you can pair any kind of footwear with any outfit, if you’re in a playful mood.
