Un Samedi En Jeans

I cannot believe I haven't jumped on the boyfriend/mom jeans trend earlier. Two years ago, I would have cringed at the idea of me wearing my mom's 90s jeans (never judge a book by it's cover). I find it fascinating how trends come and go, especially seeing how nowadays we're so attached to the 90s clothing wise. I also just realized I associated these jeans with a spaghetti strap top. 90's revival all the way!  These jeans are so comfortable I'm not even bothered to take them off after a long day. I like that they're very versatile and can be worn for a lot of different occasions. I opted for a casual Saturday look. I like contrasting items and finding a right balance between girly and boyish. A silky feminine top with patent black flats seemed appropriate.
I spent this Saturday wandering around Geneva and discovered a couple hidden places I didn't know about. Don't you love stumbling across new places in your town? I
I'm heading to Lisbon, Portugal tomorrow morning for a week of sunshine with my mom. I'll be instagramming my adventures from there so feel free to check out my feed! Wishing you all a lovely week, thanks for reading. Until next time! X

Wildly Blue

#teenvogue // wearing TOPSHOP top (here), & OTHER STORIES skirt (here), ZARA shoes, COS bag
After a week spent in Barcelona with my best friends I'm back home with a nostalgic heart. I had the best time and I wish we could have stayed a week longer. Sadly, all good things have an end. Before going away, I told myself I would capture each moments with my DSLR but to be honest I got caught in enjoying my trip and making the most of it.  When you're having fun, the last thing you want to do is recording or taking pictures. You just want to enjoy the moment with the people you love. I'm glad I'm left with the most amazing memories.
While I was there, of course I went shopping! I mean who doesn't with the amazing sales they have in Spain! I got a little carried away at & Other Stories. I love this brand so much as they have a variety of unique clothing pieces. I fell in love with the cold colored pattern of this skirt. It's a print I've never seen before so it immediately caught my eye. Not to mention I'm always in for pleats! As it has a mix of different colors, I choose a pastel blue top to compliment the skirt. What do you guys think? 
Anyway, I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I'm back on the blogging grind! 
Until next time, X

Fellow Yellow

Yellow is slowly but surely becoming one of my favorite colors to wear. Wether it's a mustardy, neon or pastel tone I've become obsessed with it. A lot of people are actually afraid of it as it's very vibrant and out there. I actually think it only takes a little courage to step out of your comfort zone and see that it can become your best friend. You'd be surprised but yellow flatters a lot of people. You just need to find the right shade for you. As I said, it's quite vibrant that's why neutrals and yellow go hand in hand. Whenever I wear color, I like to keep the focus on that special piece therefore I wear very basic pieces or the least color possible. So are you a fan of yellow as well? If you're hesitant about it but still want to give it a go, try to start by adding yellow accessorize such as a belt or a bag.
On a life note, I'm leaving to Barcelona on Monday. You can find me on instagram to keep updated on my adventures! I hope you're all spending amazing holidays! Happy belated Independence day to all my American readers! Until next time, X
