Hi guys! Remember my grey look from a couple of posts ago? Well, I took the same asymmetrical skirt and styled it in a more casual, sporty way. Let me know which look do you like the most?
Now that the new year is here, I am sure we are filled with excitement, and desire the to be better, to dare more, and to strive for greatness; in two words: TO CHANGE. In the little attempt to do so, I have been thinking that change doesn’t always need to be drastic. Most big changes occur over long periods of time. As a matter of fact, I truly believe that the best type of change, the ones that will last and make a difference are the small, but persistent ones. Like the drop of water that smoothes the surface of a rock, so will small changes polish us, and our societies in a steady, patient manner. And so, as we have heard so many times, if we want change, we have to make it happen, but I propose we do it in small doses.
This is my last outfit post from my short Canadian trip. We shot this at Unionville’s Main Street – a super cute village. For this visit in town, I decided to wear a very comfy look since it was all about walking and discovering the corners of this beautiful setting. I love this pair of leather-like, high waisted jeans, as they are simple, yet chic. I combined them with my favourite plain white t-shirt, and I tied a denim shirt around my waist to add to the laid-back mood. My new pair of flat sandals (which I got on sale!) were ideal for this outing. Since the outfit was not too bold, I decided to add a whole bunch of bracelets to give it a punch. I hope you love it!
I’m back in Canada for a week, and I have had the amazing chance of visiting one of my good friends here. Let me tell you that Canada in Summer is actually a warm, happy place, (who would know?!) We took these shots at two different parks near my friend’s house, one of which was more of a pocket-size forest than a playground.
For this outfit I wore a pair of washed denim overalls with a bright green top. I love denim dungarees, and even more so if they’re short. I also really like how both colours create a perfect contrast. This is a super easy, comfy, ready to hit the road look!
PS: One of my current accessory obsessions is tying a simple ribbon around my wrist. Simple, yet chic! Any thoughts?
Following up with my travel posts, from Peru I flew to Ecuador. I would like to say that the second country I visited on my South American trip turned out to be a sweet surprise. As I found out, Quito has the biggest, best preserved colonial city centre in South America; Ecuador is one of the biggest exporters of flowers in Latin America, and Panama hats are not from Panama, but from Ecuador. I hope you enjoy my picture diary featuring Quito, Cuenca & Guayaquil!
In Ecuador, there are currently two places that have been labeled as the middle point of the world. The historic one was determined by French scientists in the XVIIIc. However, the research conducted afterwards demonstrated that the real middle of the world lies about 200m away.
I was lucky to visit both and do a quick photoshoot at the Middle of the World City, a small village created around the monument for the equator. Mismatching prints is one of my favourite trends, and on this occasion I combined a pair of cameo jeans with a leopard print scarf. I really like how the colours give a special harmony to the outfit. To tone down the look, I wore a plain white tee. Let me know what you think!
