Minimalism

It’s absolutely true when they say that less is more. This summer, you can spot the simple but elegant creations on the catwalk. Calvin Klein, Hermes, Valentino and many more have already made this trend their own.

One of the best things about this, is defenitely that you don’t have to bother with lots necklaces, bracelets or rings. A simple clutch and a nice pair of shoes and you’re ready to go!

        

Finding the right bra

If there’s one thing every girl and woman should invest in, it’s a decent bra. I’ve found it’s best to ask for help in the shop if you can’t find the right one, or you don’t know what size you should get. Bra’s that don’t fit right can cause discomfort and even pain, so you should always take your time picking one.

Personally, I really like the bra’s from Prima Donna and Chantelle. You can also fit a prosthetic in them if you have one and nobody will notice, because if you have the right shape and size of bra, it won’t be visible at all.

Instead of buying a plain black or white bra, try to go for something different like one with lace or colours. Wearing nice underwear will immediately make you feel better and if you feel good, you’ll look good to.

          

Harem pants

They were a big trend a few years ago and it seems like the harem pants are making a comeback. I bought one myself yesterday and it’s certainly something I should have done a long time ago.

The black and white harem pants match great with colourful tops, while the ones with patterns look best with plain tops. They not only look fun to wear, they actually are.

The material is really comfortable and you don’t have that restricting feeling you sometimes get when you wear jeans, so basically, it feels like you’re wearing pajama pants. I’m going back to the shop today to buy myself a few more.

Loafers

The other day, I was looking for a pair of shoes which I could wear all day without my feet hurting. I found a pair of loafers that are not only really comfortable, but look great too. I used to think only old people wore them, but there are so many designs and colours right now, that anyone could pull them off. If you’re looking for a pair of shoes, but don’t know what to get, I suggest you go buy yourself a pair of loafers.

     

Statement sunglasses

Although the sun hasn’t showed itself much yet, the big statement sunglasses are definitely making a comeback . While the brightly coloured ones are my favourite, I also love the softer pastels. It doesn’t end there though, crazy designs, prints, everything you can think of. I already have two pairs of sunglasses, but I’m considering getting myself a pair with cute little flowers, like the one below.

   

Metallic

A trend which really stands out this spring, is without a doubt to wear things with a metallic shine. You can keep it subtle with a metallic nail polish or accessories, or be a little bolder with a pair of metallic pants.

Vintage stuff

I’ve recently discovered I have a passion for vintage accessories, after I received some from my grandmother. I am now the owner of pair of really nice leather gloves and a beautiful ring. I’ve always liked vintage furniture too, because the design is usually more detailed and I love that old look. It makes me feel like I’m in a different era, if only for a minute.

          

Day of shopping

I’m feeling a little better and what better way to celebrate, than with a day of shopping? I didn’t go too crazy this time, but I bought a top and a jumper which I really like. I also ate the most delicious  italian ham and pesto sandwich EVER, but that’s not the point of this post.

I am now the happy owner of the jumper on the right. It was available in various colours, but I liked the soft green one the most. I’m quite pale, so really bright tops -with a few exceptions- aren’t the best choice for me.

I’ve also noticed t-shirts and tops with band names have become popular again. I think they’re a great way of combining your favourite music with fashion, while showing other people what kind of music you like.

Sneakers

I like to wear heels, but once in a while my feet need a break. That’s why I’m so fond of my sneakers; they’re comfortable and match with lots of clothes. You can get crazy with colours, spikes and glitters, or keep it basic with a classic black. Whichever way you look at it, sneakers are a great addition to your shoe collection.
