ERDEM x H&M

Every year H&M does a collaboration with a hand-picked high-end designer brand, and this year is no exception. Not going to lie, this could be the first time I’ve ever heard of Erdem, perhaps due to my lack of fashion knowledge, but I wasn’t too aware of the brand. On one regular school night as I was getting distracted by this thing called “the internet”, I accidentally stumble upon this ad, and needless to say, I was instantly SOLD.

After a couple minutes of googling, I’ve learned that the mastermind behind Erdem is the brilliant Erdem Moralioglu, a Canadian born, England raised designer. This collab is his first attempt to branch out from women’s wear to men’s wear. There are still quite a sweet elegant touches of Erdem on the men’s wear pieces. In fact, I am far more impressed with the men’s pieces since they could easily be unisex items and regardless of where you are on the gender spectrum, there is something for you in this collection.

Here are some of the items I am just dying to get my hands on from this collection:

November Inspiration.

Autumn editorial & street styles from the past and present that really inspired me… I find that no matter how hard I tried, I can’t seem to stray from beige/nude color palate. Basically anything anyone decided to put on their faces as makeup, I want the exact replica of colors except in clothes. Should I be concerned with how I obsessed I’ve been with these neutral colors? Think it will stay for now.

The perfect staycation spent village hopping around Girona, Catalonia. The autumn atmosphere is definitely in the air and I am loving every single second of it. We visited Gala and Salvador Dali’s castle in Pubol (he gifted her the castle) and of course Peratallada – arguably the most beautiful Catalan town – my all time favorite especially during the fall months.

“Autumn that year painted the countryside in vivid shades of scarlet, saffron, and russet, and the days were clear and crisp under harvest skies.” -Sharon Kay Penman

Dear Viewers….

First of all I hope this summer was all kinds of wonderful and chic. For those of you who’s followed my Instagram, you are probably more aware of my whereabouts. Back to school season has gotten to the best of me, and I’ve officially started my 4th year dentistry course. It’s been super hectic and the frustration level was surprisingly high. It took me awhile to finally sit down and think about what’s next for my blog. Thinking a couple months ahead, school will only get busier and work will begin to pile up. However, I am going to really challenge myself to post at least once a week, whether that is inspiration posts or content I’ve created, I hope you guys bear with me! Thank you so so much for following this blog, let me know if there’s anything you want to suggest and comment down below! Happy Autumn lovlies.

1 Shirt 2 Looks.

Nothing Feels better than rolling out out of bed on a lazy Tuesday morning (yes, you read it right. T U E S D A Y) on a hot summer day and doing the bare minimum. Of course the definition of “minimum” varied. For me personally, not having to put on a bra is a leisure activity I partake during the summer months. Of course as the days gone by, the desire to do is less and less (or desire to NOT do haha). One day I woke up thought to myself “wouldn’t it be so nice if I don’t have to change in the morning?” And so it begins. The pajama style ensued… Why not roll out of bed and style what you already got on anyway? This time I came up with two looks to dress up the pajama shirt. One causal (think Starbucks run and Mimosa by the sea) and one dressier option (garden party or if you are bold enough, perhaps a wedding?). You welcome and enjoy!

Beautiful day spent driving along the curves of dreamy Catalonia coastal highway to a quiet hidden beach (required some hike and an adventurous spirit). And I was instantly in love with absolutely everything. The stunning view and tranquility of the surroundings away from busy Barcelona center full of tourists. Needless to say I will be back very soon.

Check out this MAP that shows you all the good beaches to go (I recommend a nice day trip with car) and maybe you will find me there…in my salty hair and glowing flashing skin form that is 🙂

Millennial pink – summer vacay

Millennial pink - summer vacay

 

This “millennial pink” trend really hits me right on the spot. I absolutely adored the palate ranging from nude, beige, salmon to bubble gum pink. Basically any color that is socially acceptable to put on the face as makeup. Perhaps my inner little ballerina is jumping up and down from joy, or you can also blame it on me being a Taurus and love me some warm colors… I actually had to look up what exactly shade of pink it is, and also stumbled upon this article, which is a very nice read. This look has three of my current favorites millennial pink, trouser, and espadrilles.  I would rock this look from day drinking (keep the mimosas coming!) to a night out downing tequila shots at a beach club. All about being comfortable and staying chic! Afterall, it’s never too late to be too millennial 😉
