Vintage leather belt
If I had to wear one outfit everyday for the rest of my life, then I would choose this one. It feels so easy and casual, yet I still can't help but feel feminine and subtly sexy in it. Simple in a way that a woman's confidence in her body and her personal style is perfectly complemented and not overshadowed. That's how I like to describe my fashion sense. I've always considered myself a bohemian dresser . . . going towards the flowy and Georgia O'Keefe-esque as opposed to the sharp and stiff. I am definitely much more bohemian than I am anything else, but with minimalist qualities, too. I don't prefer to be over-the-top . . . preferring subtlety instead. If I get in the mood to go a little more extravagant, it's in bits and pieces, with a splash of color and print here and there, or a dramatic pattern on a very classic and toned down shape. Or maybe a ruffle around the neckline and everything else bared down. I like ruffles a lot. All in all, I don't dress to grab attention . . . I dress for myself. That has always been my fashion motto. It has never felt worth my time to take too much into consideration what others thought of the way I dressed. I've always liked what I liked. Simple as that. I won't tell you how much I've repeated this outfit though. I will give it the blog post it deserves though :)
I'm currently back in my beloved NYC for just a day before jumping on another plane to somewhere I've overindulgently dreamt about quite a lot. Florence, Italy! I've listened to endless amounts of travel stories from my friends about road trips through the Italian countryside with days sun drunk while watching the roads through rose-tinted glasses. Stories of nights that end drenched in too much wine and enwrapped with gutsy Italian men wanting far too many kisses. I've watched Roman Holiday like a million times. And I wouldn't mind if pizza could be a regular part of my dietary programming . . . I think it's about time I make my way there! Still, looking forward to being back in my city for a bit again before the next adventure.
