I’d had a pair of snakeskin pants from H&M since I was 17 and haven’t been able to throw them away until I could find the perfect replacement, and I finally have. From Miaou, the Beatrice snakeskin pant – they’re perfectly fit, I thought I would want to take the waist in but because these are 100% plastic (like pleather, u know) once you get moving in them they get HOT, and HOT x2 when you’re in fucking Spain. I was literally radiating heat, wasn’t great. But apart from that, I can’t live without these. If I made my H&M ones last that long, these are lasting even longer…
Took another trip to Paris last weekend…I just can’t help myself, it’s so close by and so chilled out, it’s like a perfect city break from this city. It was absolutely freezing but also the sunniest few days in Paris I’ve had for a while aaaaand they’ve got electric scooters! Probably the best way to move around a city you already kind of know. But anyway, didn’t actually take a lot of photos this time around, just got a couple on one of the breaks in between scooting and trying to find another scooter. One track mind here.
Just a few new things btw – new jeans from Re/Done and some new boots from Miista. I really love Re/Done jeans, but only ever buy them on sale when they’re around £100, and I think their sizes are just all over the place. Ordered them in 27 but I should’ve gotten 26. I think one go in the wash and they’ll be okay. The boots were such a necessity, it’s been good to get out of my air forces for a bit and they’re super comfortable and so easy to wear with jeans. Oh! And a gold chain belt, I got it from Etsy and I feel a bit of an obsession coming on…
A look into the age-old question of how the hell should u dress
Y’all I can’t even BEGIN to tell you how many times I have heated conversations with myself about how to dress, how much body to show, what it means when you show X amount of body, all these types of questions that I feel like me, as a kind-of-bodacious-bod (can u say that about urself? My measurements are 36-27-38, which is like very close to hourglass so maybe I can??) can have heated debates about beacuse clothes don’t just fall on me like they do on a lot of people. They get caught up in all sorts of places, they rise and bunch and sometimes it’s just easier to wear all skin tight everything because then I don’t need to worry about any of this! What the hell!
Anyway, all of this is just to say that on this day I just didn’t want to think about any of that, so I put on a long Reformation dress I bought to wear to a wedding, and an old tee from Grailed. The front views of this outfit are a bit questionable, but boy was it nice to just wear it and let clothes billow around. I feel like this look definitely suits a more straight up-n-down body shape, esp w/some heavy black boots for fall, but I was into it.
The swimsuit edition
Splish splash here we go again! I’m writing this late on Sunday, getting myself mentally prepared for another week at work, desperately wishing I was back here. There is nothing sweeter than stepping out and hearing the ocean, it’s one of my fav sounds 🙄
My friend’s apartment was right on the water, with a private, sometimes terrifying, entrance to the water. These were taken the last few days we were there, in my favorite Sommer Swim bikini. Sommer Swim is definitely 100% my go-to swimwear brand right now – perfect barely there cuts and really good colors. The only thing to watch out for is the sizing is a bit on the small size, I’ve gone L for top and M for the bottom, although I think for the string bikini tops I’m going for M – I like a less is more approach when it comes to swimsuits LOL.
