KIMONO FROM DARLING // TOP FROM ZARA // LEVI'S 501 JEANS (DIY) // ZARA SANDALS // BAG I GOT AT A FLEA MARKET
To many people's disbelieve I traded my black blazer for a less fitted, more colourful copy coming to you in the shape of a kimono. It was never in the books for me to give in to this trend, mostly because my priorities are usually at finding a piece that fits nicely instead of finding something with the motto: "The baggier, the better!" Also because this is one hell of a colourful item, and I am used to wearing this exact combination with -can you guess it?-, my black blazer. But it happened that on a Monday afternoon, celebrating the first day of one of my holidays, my mom and I took a walk around town and realised I desperately needed something to wear on my jumpsuit, because the leather jacket thing I was doing was more of a no-no than a go-go. And after trying on the whole stores worth of blazers and jackets, this kimono was shown to me. It was mine pretty short after.
Want to know something else that's more a no-no than a go-go? That pair of shorts. Another trend I gave into is the diy-ed Levi's 501 jeans-to-shorts, and by giving in to this trend you also give permission to the whole world to shamelessly watch your ass while passing by. I realise, really.
