I haven’t been able to post lately as too many things have happened to me in the last week. First, my mom got sick and a few days ago we had a huge flood in our condo. Talk about bad luck, but that’s life right?! Now dealing with the insurance and construction guys has been a nightmare. Luckily we spend the weekend at the beach house to avoid all the stress.
When we got back in the city I simply wanted to avoid staying at the condo, so decided to walk around and work from coffee shops. In a way, it was a good time for me to do some window shopping and see what is trending currently. To my surprise all the stores that I love carried linen pieces. I am so happy that linen is back. I remember back in the days I used to wear my cousin’s suit even though it was 3 sizes bigger than my frame but I still loved it. My dad would make fun of me for my weird taste and would say nobody dresses like you. Don’t know where did I get all the ideas. Mind you we didn’t have magazines back then I just watched too many Italian movies.
Linen is the fabric you wear to weddings, to the beach on the weekend, and to Sunday brunch with your friends. When I spotted this linen suit at HM store I had to have it. It’s comfy enough to walk around the city when is still a bit chilly outside.
Today I wanted to show you two looks that I wore last week, to show you my obsession with linen.
First look, I wore the whole suit and paired with comfy sneakers and added a straw hat & bag & belt as accessories. It’s pretty obvious straw and woven bags are hot for spring. The suit its sold out online but you can check your local stores, you might be able to score one. Also, Zara and Mango have some beautiful pieces that I love, my favourites (here & here & here )
For the second look, I decided to pair the blazer with jeans and white camisole top. To add a French feminine vibe I added a beret and pined a little flower accessory to my blazer. Finished the look with white slingbacks, from last season (similar here & here) and a vintage straw bag, similar (here & here). Have a great weekend! Aurela x
