EASTER OUTFIT if you feel like reading it through. Would love you to click on the label "Walking in the city" (which is where you find most of my style post accumulated) - and then give your view of it. Always interesting with opinions from others.
Style/clothes/shoes/bags is a way for me to breath, express myself and have fun with the everyday life. It's a creative, spontanios and sometimes planned process in which I take an enormous pleasure of controlling. Style for me is something timeless, something that you put together with a personal touch where you might be influenced by a trend but don't buy the whole concept. Even if you wear some statement pieces, some classic items that are labeled with big brands, I find it very intriguing to combine them in MY WAY.
Fashion is a huge interest of mine and would love to be able to wear crazy outfits everyday and I can assure you I would do it with great pride and pleasure, but fact is that I'm a stay at home mother for the time being and most of the time I have this little drooling baby boy on my hip as a big eyed koala. Then I also have my playful and super energetic toddler running around, kissing me and full with dirt and other things; not very good for sensitive garments and fabrics. So my everyday style is rather easy going, but most of the time with my sort of twist and my way of creating it. Like it or not.
Concerning my hair I have to say that mostly, I find a natural, not too styled hair the absolute most gorgeous. Just as I find a rather naked face much more interesting then a face full with makeup. I think the simplicity of the hair and makeup let's the woman shine through. True beauty doesn't need all of that fixing and I find it often too much when women curl and blow dry their hair into absolute perfection. It just feels flat and boring. Like a parade of Miss America.
We all need makeup, but when it looks painted on the skin, I prefer less then more. Same with hair. I love women who wears extravaganza clothes and outfits, but let's the hair be impeccable in it's simplicity - maybe with a casual pony tail, just loose or a simple knot. It's so liberating and feels somewhat extra interesting. That you care, but only to a certain extend. You're not a slave under fashion nor beauty and you are in charge instead of being a product of perfection or commercial - a woman who wants to change herself to fit in of what Barbie or perfect edited adds taught us was correct.
That's my personal view of it and others my find my way of wearing a rather simple hair and makeup not at all nice. It's fine. I like it. It also take ten minutes in total to get myself together, which is superb and absolutely necessary in my life.
