“Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.” When florals don’t strike your fancy, wearing head-to-toe white is always a good idea during spring. A monochromatic outfit makes playing with monumental proportions much easier, so wide leg pants are a great option.

Art By Me | “After The Gala”, 2018. Mixed Media.

22. March 2018

 

I thought maybe some of you might want to see my own work. Even though, admittedly I haven’t really sketched for a while, I’ve been getting into it again. Since the weather lately has made it very hard to shoot pictures even inside due to the darkness, I grabbed my pastel paintings and started to sketch and paint this picture. I made it with the full intention to add those realistic elements just for fun. Call it a little experiment.

My Mom, who is both a pedagogue and a teacher still has amongst her treasures my first drawing, when I was just 2 years old (yes, so small!). As an educational scientist she states that most little children at that age have not fully developed their motor skills and can barely draw circles and lines. Therefore. she was in awe when she saw that despite my young age, I drew a rabbit with detailed ears, arms, legs, tail, form and all. Of course, she’s my Mom and moms always exaggerate, since see you with the lens of love. I’m still no Picasso nor Renoir and I’m as far as possible from being that.

Art has been a big part of my life since I was a kid, when my mom always had a desk for me with a giant drawer full of paints, color pencils, markers, and paper for me to grab it whenever I felt like it. However, now that I’m older, I’ve discovered that it has a great healing power over me. I’ve gathered a gazillion sketches of stuff I would like to paint over the years, sort of like ‘visions’, but never find time to. Perhaps it’s fear of not being good enough, as once a professor in uni  didn’t accept my paintings for an architecture faculty exhibition, since he found them too ‘childish’. That being said, at the end you are the only one who should be happy with your art and not comprimise it to the general masses’ tastes or expectations. And even though an artwork is never really finished, but more like abandoned (you can never detail it enough), I don’t think it turned out that bad. Or at least, I’m kinda happy with it. x

Wannawear | High Street Favorite: Meet Spring’s ‘It’ Jacket

21. March 2018
  stories safari jacket

Featured: & Other Stories Safari Jacket (not yet available, but find similar here), & Other Stories Suede Mules, Lanvin Camisole (amazing similar option here and budget option here), Étoile Isabel Marant Trousers (on sale, but similar budget option here) , Beaufille Earrings, (found a great alternative from Mango) Toteme Scarf, Vintage Cartier Sunglasses (similar), Tom Ford Santal Blush Eau de Parfum, Kate Spade Watch, and a Loewe Woven Bag (similar here)

 Shop the Post:

 

Meet what I predict will be spring’s most coveted high street piece and yet another item at the very top of my current wishlist: this & Other Stories safari jacket. The reason? It’s pretty much self-explanatory. Just look at the perfectly flattering tailored silhouette, that belt, and last, but not least —the ideal beige shade.

I would wear it with different shades of beige and brown or with checked trousers as featured above. As a finishing touch, I would wear it with gold and warm-toned accessories preferrably in cognac. Did I mention how much I am loving those mules and that Toteme scarf?

How about you? Are you loving this & Other Stories safari jacket as much as I do? How would you wear it?

Wishing you all a happy hump day. x

As I mentioned in my previous post, when print clashing and vivid colors (or colors in general outside the neutral tone spectrum) are not right up your street,  terracotta, beige and earthy tones are the only colors that really matter this upcoming season.

A little Sunday dose of inspiration for those already craving for spring and courtesy of Vogue Germany, who by the way have been killing it during the past couple of years with their editorials.

If like me, you are not into the pastel/lilac/vivid color and print clashing trends for the upcoming season, this editorial showcases that for the rest of us spring will be all about different beige tones worn together, terracota/salmon/peach, trench coats, unexpected layering, slouchy boots worn under skirts, dresses or belted coats, wide leg pants, and last, but not least, power suits preferrably in beige and linen and cotton fabrics. Earthy shades are still going strong and that has me already excited.
