Atemporal? All year round, for life, heck — to be passed on to future generations. But, aseasonal? Nope. It simply doesn’t work regardless of how minimal you intend to keep your wardrobe. The good part about it? It doesn’t have to.

During winter, we are forced to wear coats or thick jackets (OK, ‘forced’ is such a strong word, especially because who doesn’t love to wear them?) in order to stay warm, unless you want to catch a cold. Summer, on the other hand, requires as little clothing as possible, especially during the hottest days of the year. This is precisely why summer is all about having fun with clothing: The fact that you can wear lighter layers gives you the opportunity to show off garments with playful designs, like, for instance, ruffled and asymmetric skirts, one and off-the-shoulder tops, whimsical dresses, etc. The best part about it? You don’t need to cover it or hide it under a coat or jacket.

This is the main reason, why my summer style differs from my winter one and if you ask me, I’m fully OK with that. And I endorse you to have as much fun with fashion as possible as long as the weather allows it, like with this Rejina Pyo ruffled skirt,  because life is too short to wear boring clothes. x

My Art | “No Rain, No Flowers”, 2018 + Some Thoughts On The Rise Of Self-Proclaimed Art Connoisseurs In The Influencersphere And The Prostitution of Art

30. May 2018

 

I find offensive that the superfical, vain, and insensitive kind of person who triggers misfits to create art in the first place, is posting it.

“It’s so good to post art on your feed” — this was the surreal comment (pun intended) a rising German influencer posted under a picture of an Alexander Calder sculpture a respected blogger posted on her Instagram account. It’s very simple: Art is not a status symbol or a ‘look at me, I’m cool’ symbol, if you will. Art is also not a commodity, not a logo, it is not the Gucci bag or Gucci belt this same influencer is accustomed to show off on her feed. Art is not limited to being a simple ornament and it is certainly not there to  ‘decorate’ Instagram feeds, especially if you know as much about it as a kindergardner knows about differential calculus. Art is made out of passion and comes from the soul, so boasting about it as if you are showing off your new Balenciaga SS sneakers is not only incredibly fake, hypocritical, disrespectful to artists, and distasteful, but it is immensely ironic. The latter is the reason why I am writing this post: As someone who considers herself a free spirit and who knows artists are sensitive souls, I find offensive that the superfical, vain, and insensitive kind of person who triggers misfits to create art in the first place, is posting it.

you simply post about what forms an integral part of your identity and personality.

Furthermore, you blog and post about ‘food’ if you are a foodie, about cars if you are enthusiast, and in general, you simply post about what forms an integral part of your identity and personality. Personally, I grew up with art and it has always been my passion, which the main reason why I studied architecture as an alternative to painting in the first place. This is also one of the reasons I created my blog which was called ‘Paint me in the Landscape’ back at the end of 2011, as I intended to share art (including my own) and architecture besides outfit posts and fashion.

If art were such a huge part of who these influencer girls are, why didn’t they include it in their content since the very beginning in the first place?

Don’t get me wrong, since I ousted in private very often years back my personal frustration with people not appreciating the artworks of my favorite painters I posted on Instagram back when I started my Instagram account in 2013 and back then when no influencer posted art, when it was neither ‘cool’ nor ‘trendy’.  The past year’s sudden rise (or trend?) in art being posted by influencers on Instagram can be a positive thing if it is authentic. But you see, the problem is that it mostly isn’t.

If art were or had been such a huge part of who these influencer girls are, why didn’t they include it in their content since the very beginning in the first place? It’s a rhetorical question. I’m sure that there are influencers posting about art who are authentic, but I am as sure these are a little tiny minority, a minority as little as influencers who are authentic people.

if you are going to post about a trending topic, make sure at least that it is something that was not created precisely because of people like you.

In conclusion: You can post about whatever takes your fancy regardless if you are just using it to build a fake image of something you are not, but  if you are going to post about a trending topic, make sure at least that it is something that was not created precisely because of people like you. 😉

Inspiration | Mixed Editorials: La Bomba by Jacquemus

23. May 2018

Sources: Vogue.com, Vogue Ukraine, Vogue China, Marie Claire UK, Marie Claire Italia, Rika Magazine, MNZ Store, Jacquemus.com, Totokaelo, and Tumblr.

Shop the Post:

 

It’s no wonder Jacquemus La Bomba, a.k.a. his Spring Summer 2018 collection,  seems to be a major source of inspiration for magazine fashion editorials this summer. The reason? It’s pretty much self-explanatory. The collection epitomizes summer vibes with its huge straw hats, strappy sandal galore, and super sexy slinky dresses. The clothes alone transport you to Cuba or some Caribbean island getaway with its easy breezy styles.

Since these images have been bombarding my Tumblr as of late (not complaining, since I can’t stop staring at them), I thought I’d share them with you guys for some major summer inspo goals.
