Only you can turn poppies blue

I rarely wear pants, and when I do, it is most probably because I am running late and I have like 5 minutes to get dressed and get out the door. This particular morning I indeed had some time on my hands but I felt really uninspired. I couldn't for the life of me figure out what to wear with this top. So I just gave up and decided to wear pants. And maybe it's a good thing to break the habit. In fact I was so inspired this weekend that I went out and bought a pair of faux leather pants. They will of course make an appearance on the blog later this week.

Formaldehyde

Last weekend it was still pleasant enough for bare feet, which sadly will no longer be the case starting tomorrow. I dug out into my scarf collection for something to pair with this two tone dress and matching cardigan. I really should be wearing more headgear this fall, though heads are bound to turn when wearing something like this in public. Floppy hats are definitely on my wishlist.

Lost my spark, no more glowing in the dark

With the sun peeking out from behind the clouds from time to time, I am still tempted to add splashes of color to my daily ensembles, despite my resolve to stick to darker shades this season. Neon is a left over the summer has left behind, purple will always be my favorite color and black the perfect canvas.

We are loud like love

This fall debuted with the some pretty amazing music record releases, courtesy of some of my favorite bands. Nothing, of course, could beat my all time favorite Placebo and their new album Loud Like Love. It's been on repeat since Monday and I've been humming the tracks non stop. And speaking of debuts, it seems I made a habit of wearing this jumpsuit to mark the beginning of fall for the past couple of years. Letting summer, my favorite season, go is always tough so I might as well do it wearing something I really love.

I wanna be your vacuum cleaner, breathing in your dust

Artcic Monkeys - I wanna be yours
The new Arctic Monkeys album inspired my current dark romantic mood, and this is the most wonderfully twisted love song ever.

Fall whishlist

I thought I might break the outfit posting routine. I don't write down wish lists too often, but this time I decided to share my current one for fall. It's quite short, as I am trying to keep things simple and not get overly excited for unnecessary items. You will also notice that even if it's a wish list and anything  goes, I tried to be quite down to earth about this and not crave impossible things like say a Hermes bag. Here it goes!

 1. Plaid skirt - Asos

Last days of summer

You might think I have become schizophrenic (and frankly I wouldn't blame you) talking about wanting to wear nothing but black this fall (here) and then posting two colorful outfits in a row. I still stick to what I said, but I am not ready for fall yet, it's still summer in my heart and I have a really hard time giving it up. Anyway, purple is my all time favorite color and I will wear it regardless the season. Whit that in mind, I am officially opening the hunt for the perfect purple plaid full skirt for fall. Suggestions are more than welcomed.

Fly on the wings of a dragonfly

Dragonflies are not your average insects. These mysterious and ancient creatures have lived on earth for millions of years, far longer than humans. The dragonfly, in almost every part of the world symbolizes change in the perspective of self realization. Its scurrying flight across water represents an act of going beyond what’s on the surface and looking into the deeper implications and aspects of life. The dragonfly’s agile flight and its ability to move in all six directions exude a sense of power and poise - something that comes only with age and maturity. To the Japanese, it symbolizes summer and autumn and are admired and respected all over, so much so that the Samurai use it as a symbol of power, agility and best of all, Victory. In China, people associate the dragonfly with prosperity, harmony and as a good luck charm. Amongst Native Americans, it is a sign of happiness, speed and purity. Purity because the dragonfly eats from the wind itself.

Right thoughts, right words, right action

I seem to be gravitating towards more classic shapes and basic colors lately. Stripes will always be a classic for me, especially in black and white. I found that red accents were the perfect compliment for my mod dress. It might just be the all black window display at H&M but I am craving more and more black pieces for fall. Not that I am ready for fall yet, I am still clinging to the last remnants of summer here.
