Bare with me a post! I know you are expecting the second high waist jeans look, but it is Easter holidays, and everyone, even me, is hurtling out of the city, and anxiously trading asphalt for sand, and coffees for coconuts. I am not exaggerating when I say that this week will not see me wearing anything but shorts, bathing suits and sandals; if they come with pompoms or tassels, all the better! The days ahead promise a good deal of chilling, and tanning. Hope you have a great holiday!
Army green is hands down one of my preferred colours to wear, perhaps because it combines well with so many others (pink, mustard, camel, black, orange,…); or maybe, because of the cool, ready to battle feel that it discharges. Now that I come to think about it, it also happens to be a staple colour of one of my favourite casual brands: Marissa Webb. So maybe it is a little bit of all of this together what pulls me towards the hue. Whatever it may be, here is a look that revolves around the concept of strength and combat, a mood that is given by the cargo jeans and the killer Vince Camuto laser-cut heels.
Last Wednesday, cladded up in candy pink, I was glad to be wearing woolly layers and jeans. Believe it or not, the afternoon we shot this look was a particularly chilly one. It is March, and the soon to be unbearable heat of Summer has been thrusting the mercury up. But for no reason, that evening, the clouds were ganging up on us and threatening with rain. Even if the cool temperatures offered us a soothing afternoon, we were forced to shut the panoramic doors because the mischievous winds wouldn’t give us a rest.
I really like this top’s asymmetric cut. Its shape, along with the zip up detail revamp the all time classic white shirt. I thought mixing it with a pair of shorts, made the shirt’s structure stand out a bit more, considering how it falls on the back. And to keep it simple, I threw in these really cool laser-cut oxfords.
A friend of mine owns a small house that clings to one of the sides of San Salvador’s volcano. It is a very cozy cabin that houses a garden double its size, with striking views of the city. Last week, for a change, I burrowed the place and went over to catch a breath of clean air. Here are a few shots we took from our visit to the place.
Sweater weather is real, people! Every year I tend to forget that temperatures do drop around this time in my country too. Not that our thermometers hit below zero, but we do get fresh mornings and brisk nights.
I love chunky knits, but I don’t usually get to wear them here; however the past weeks have given us the chance to get all cosy in warm socks and sweaters. And around here it doesn’t get any more Christmassy than this, I guess?
I hope you guys like it, and sorry about my absence lately!
