Purple Hues

Hey loves, 
I'm back from beautiful London where I took these pictures on a sunny Tuesday afternoon. This trip has been short and sweet. I had a lovely time with my dad and brother visiting my family and prepping  with my aunt for her wedding in a couple of months. Of course I also went to galleries and museums. The Tate, the White Chappel Gallery and the ICA. I wanted to do more but the timing was too short. Oh well, I'll go next time. I will hopefully be back soon. I miss it already, the atmosphere is like no other place and for those who have never been there I really recommend visiting (I say that all the time, but really tho). Of course I also treated myself with a little shopping while I was there. Funny enough I shopped at the 'three sisters' : Cos, H&M and &OtherStories. I found that my style is a mixture of those three stores together lately. I found this jumper dress at Cos and fell in love with the design, color and fit. It's very fitted at the top yet quite loose at the bottom which I like. I have a couple more items I want to feature so stay tuned for that. I should probably stop writing as it's getting quite long haha! It's probably a way to calm myself down for something special that's happening tomorrow evening… Should probably go now, don't want to say too much. Hope you had a lovely beginning of week, until next time, X

Hey guys! I know I've been absent for quite a while. I had to take a break from blogging as I was getting very stressed out with school. I think I've found my balance now, I hope you didn't mind too much. If it ever happens again, (which probably will) you can always check out my blog reads as I know they're updated regularly. Also feel free to check out my instagram @colorfullightning for updates on what's going on in my life. I hope you've all had a great start of October. I can't believe it's already the 12th. I'm heading to London for a couple days next week. I will hopefully be able to shoot a few looks while I'm there. 
Weather is definitely getting colder. I've been layering a lot these days. I fell in love with this turtleneck jumper. You would think there's two right? Well everything is attached together, I really like how it looks. What do you guys think ? Hope you've all spent a great weekend, until next time, X

Monthly Music Favorites | September

Hey, I'm back with a new playlist for the month of September, told you I would stick to them.  No need to be searching for new sounds, I gotcha back! As I like to say, my style is a mixture of eclectic elements. Well I find that my music taste goes a little along those lines as well. I love all types of music and I believe there's a right moment for each genre. I do not discriminate..oh well, maybe I'm not so keen on Metal. There are a few music genre I listen to quite often and you might have guessed them by now. Indie, Alternative and Electronic music. They're definitely my 'pêché mignon' (weakness). Here are 15 sounds I've been loving this past month. Hope you enjoy! Have a lovely weekend, until next time. X

1. Fink - Looking Too Closely | 2. In The Valley Bellow - Peaches | 3. Sir Sly - You Haunt Me | 4. Brett - Golden | 5. Kindness - This Is Not About Us | 6. Colony House - Silhouette | 7. Prinze George - Victore | 8. Panama Wedding - Uma | 9. Young Summer - Blood Love | 10. Shannon Saunders - Sheets | 11. Knox Hamilton - Work It Out | 12. Young Kato - Sunshine | 13.

All Printed Up

Can't believe how fast this week's gone by. Where did the time go ? Anyway, I hope you've all had a great one! Mine went pretty smoothly. I'm loving all my courses which actually explains why the week went on so fast. This is a look I wore a couple of days ago. I've been loving this printed dress that was a real bargain at Zara in Lisbon this Summer. It's very loose and comfortable. I threw on my trusty old pair of brogues which some of you might remember from last season. What do you guys think of that outfit ? Thanks for reading guys, until next time X

Wardrobe Wednesday | Day Uniform #4

1. Zara jumper (here) | 2. Topshop rings (here & here) | 3. Topshop skirt (here) | 4. Zara bag (here) | 5. &OTHER STORIES shoes (here)
Another Wednesday, another look! I'm doing a little series of 4 looks that I will be posting every Wednesday until September 17th (aka today). I know not all outfits will correspond to your style and school/uni dressing code but nonetheless these looks can be worn on a Saturday out with friends, a Sunday brunch, a day at the museum…Also keep in mind that you can always pick out inspiration from each look!
Summer is slowly coming to an end so does this Day Uniform series. Don't be too sad, I will hopefully come up with a new theme for more looks to share with you. As Autumn is right around the corner, I choose to put together a more toned down look yet still kept it a little sophisticated. I mentioned in a previous post that I loved navy as a color for Autumn. I never thought about wearing it as a midi skirt but when I saw this pleated one I knew it had to be in my picks. A great way to keep a look somewhat casual is by adding a jumper of your choice. I love this muted pastel color block one and you know me , I'm all about interesting prints and graphics. Speaking of which I love the design of this mustard bag, so unusual yet it works very well! What do you guys think of this look ? And did you like this little series ? I sure did love creating them for you guys. As I said I will hopefully find a new theme to create some looks in the future. Thank you all for your great feedback and comments, until next time, X
