And the EDIT is here. Finally! I know it’s my second the EDIT and I’m already one week behind. Although I do have a legit excuse for this. You know I went to the Paris Haute Couture last week, and I’m still not on track with … well with anything. I’m still trying to catch up on my sleep, blogging, and go back to my healthy diet. Omg, all that sugar and desserts that I had in Paris. And the midnight sorbet at the Hotel Costes. And all that champagne cocktails. Monkey see evil. Oh, my poor liver and blood. I’m officially on detox until September. Anyway, back to the EDIT. You can see, this EDIT is all dressed in pink.
There is a reason bigger than a fashion trend why this EDIT is all in pink. This is my way to finally say goodbye to the pink clothes, sweet pink thoughts and silly daydreaming with no other goal than wasting mine time. I can finally say I grew up and have enough of that sweet pink hues. Pink simply isn’t me anymore. And it took Paris for me to finally see this.
While walking through the streets of Paris, sitting by the runway, and talking to my new friends, I realised I’m a different person now and all that pink outfits that I wore in last few weeks (all to the sake of fashion trends), brought my mind and state back to my teens. And you were saying clothes don’t make a person!
Perhaps I’m giving too big power to the pink, but this is how I feel. Weird right? And yet, pink is not a colour, pink it’s an attitude. Which unfortunately doesn’t work for me as I wish it would. At least not for now.
Anyway, enough about my misguided thoughts on the screen, let’s have a look at my fashion street.
FASHION ON THE STREET
So, what’s up on my blog now? In short pink, pink and more pink. Oh, and some beauty tips, too. You know, on how to get that gorgeous glowing skin. Wait? You don’t say you thought you will read “on how to get that gorgeous tan”? Sorry, but not sorry. You know I’m all for beautiful, healthy skin.
Surely, my mantra is, protect your skin and your eyes. Still not both are same as easy. Although we all love to wear sunglasses we all hate applying the sunscreen cream. As it goes for the skin, my best advice is to make sure all the products you use (makeup, the body creams and lotions) have an SPF +50, so you won’t need to use the stinky sun creams. As it goes for the eyes, you must see this season most fashionable sunglasses I wrote about over here. Yes, I dedicated the entire blog post solely to the sunnies. I’m quite sure you agree one can never have enough sunglasses.
TRAFFIC SIGN: DENIM
Same as in the last EDIT, we are again stopping by the denim! Be sure to browse through the gallery to find the denim pieces you must have this season. I’m still waiting to get mines that I ordered recently. They are on their way, so be sure to read and see all about how to wear denim this summer soon. Meanwhile, shop my favourites.
This blog post is all about beauty and my favourite summer’s beauty trend. Yes, the healthy looking, radiant, glowing skin. And no, I don’t mean greasy, sweaty skin. Even though it’s summer, following this beauty trend is not that easy as it seems. And getting that beautiful glowing skin is almost impossible without the right makeup. I bet you too have struggled with the cracky makeup in the summer before. Well, you can say goodbye to this problem and welcome your beautiful, radiant look this summer. Find out how here.
If you can only get one thing this summer, you should get the lacy dress, or lacy shorts, or … anything with a lace not to say anything else.
PRINT ON PRINT
I actually planned to write an entire blog about how to wear print on print this summer. But since I’m so over pink I will hold on with this until the next time, when I get myself prints in some other colours. Blue perhaps. I really love those blue printed shorts you can find in the gallery below.
Don’t worry I’m not leaving you without at least a basic tip on how to wear prints. Or better say how to wear pink print on print. Make sure you have a colour flow. If you take a good look at the photos in this post, you will see how the colour of the prints continues to the next piece. For example, the blue bottom edge of the shorts matches my blue sandals. Shop my look bellow. You will find a pink and blue print matches you can either wear on their own or mixed together. And don’t forget to pin this fashion cheat sheet to keep it close whenever you decide to wear print on print.
If you can only buy yourself one thing this week, then it must be the black summer dress. Yes, you got this right. The summer dress in black. Or anything else as long is black. Who said you can’t wear black in the summer. Ps. don’t forget to check my Instagram to see how I wear the black dress this week.
Finally, my last pink outfit. For my last and, hopefully, least pink outfit I went for a monochrome pink look. Too much pink? Only in my head. Make sure you check all the details, plus tips on how to actually pull off an entire pink look over here.
As I didn’t go anywhere this Sunday, well at least not for real. Because in my dreams, I went back to Paris. Well, yes I was sleeping all day long. I told you I’m still catching up on my sleep. Nevertheless, make sure you get your suitcase ready because we are going away this weekend. Go here to find out what to put in your suitcases.
Don’t forget to stop at my Instagram. Blame it on you if you missed my first Paris Haute Couture. Just make sure you don’t miss my Tuscany adventure that’s coming up next. Ups, already telling too much.
GOSSIP ON THE STREET AND WHAT’S COMMING NEXT
Well, I already slipped what’s coming next. Did I mention that a special the EDIT is coming up too? The one about all the details and gossip from the Paris Haute Couture week. I can already see you screaming when you read who stopped by our table at the Hotel Costes to say hello to my friend. A little hint. She is a star. And what a star! Shining bright in Hollywood when not sitting in the first rows at Paris Haute Couture.
Back to the what’s coming up next. Remember I told you I got four invitations for the Paris Haute Couture? Unfortunately, I only managed to see two shows as I couldn’t catch the first day of the Haute Couture week. There was no commercial flight on Saturday night or Sunday morning that would take me to the Paris on time. Surely, that happens if you decide to go to the fashion week in the last minute and start planning your travel only a day before the beginning.
And not mentioning the high season. Seems like everyone is flying to Paris this month. And believe it or not not only to see the sights and live a life of a Parisian. But to take pre-wedding photos, too. You wouldn’t believe how many brides and grooms to be I saw standing there in front of the Eiffel Tower and Louvre in their wedding gowns. Don’t know what you think about this, but waiting in a queue at 6 o’clock in the morning to take pre-wedding photos is the biggest nonsense for me.
YOU SHOULD REALLY ASK ME ONLY FOR THE WAY
Writing about foolishness and travels, it’s time for me to answer your questions.
