BACK IN LONDON. Sorry for my absence. It feels strange to neglect the blog for that long, but unfortunately I had no other choice. In China I couldn’t access WordPress or any social media for that matter. But now I’m back in London and ready to step up my game. China was wonderful and I can’t wait to show you some pictures and tell you all about my trip. But first I want to show you a look we shot before I left for Asia.
UNDER WESTWAY. And here is the second instalment of The Ramones T-shirt Series. This time my beloved girly tutu dress got out to play, which doesn’t happen as often as it probably would like to. Mixing styles is always a bit of an adventure, but when I thought about possible outfits with the band shirt this girlish dress came to mind immediately. Not only is it a stunning piece of clothing, but it also reminds me of my ballet days and makes me want to swirl around like a little girl (and consequently makes me look like a crazy person). Unfortunately, there is the danger of looking like a little girl as well.
BAND T-SHIRTS. Styling band t-shirts can be a challenge sometimes. The most obvious combination is probably with a pair of ripped jeans/shorts and boots. I love band t-shirts, because they combine two of my greatest passions: music and fashion. These shirts are a staple in my wardrobe. They always come in handy when I have to get ready in 5 minutes and feel like I have nothing to wear and have no other choice than grabbing something random from my closet.
The other day I was thinking that it would not hurt to get out of my comfort zone and came up with a little experiment that is going to be featured here on the blog. May I introduce to you: “The Ramones T-Shirt Series”. The series is going to consist of several parts – my guess being something like five different outfits – in which I am going to style different looks around my Ramones t-shirt. This time, to create a sporty yet feminine look, I paired it with a fitted skirt in mint green and a pair of black & white Chuck Taylor All Stars, which match the print of the shirt perfectly. I kept the accessories at a minimum and only wore an old pair of green sunglasses and a clear bracelet. Enjoy and rock on!
GRAVEL PIT. Let’s be honest, I always wanted to play in a massive sandpit. Finally, my dream came true and I got to slide down hill after hill in a gravel pit we found near Kivijärvi, Eastern Finland. Though, I must admit that my choice of white ripped shorts was not the most appropriate for the occasion, but it was definitely worth it considering the fun we had taking these shots. Back in Barcelona I wore an outfit quite similar to the one in this shoot, but this time I combined it with my Converse shoes and white ripped shorts to give the look a sporty touch.
