September!!! The time when it’s still warm enough to wear lighter clothes, but when we stop liking the things we loved all summer. My blouses seem old and worn now, my shorts seem way too casual, and let’s not even talk about my sandals – they’ve lost all of their shine. It’s also time to start wearing real clothes again, and I started this morning by getting out a pair of jeans (if you can actually call jeans “real clothing”) – those weird things I hadn’t worn in at least two months.
I managed to wear them for about two hours before going back to my skirts. I’m just not quite ready. I won’t even tell you the effect it had on me last week to put heels on for this photo. So I decided to go back to my Valentinos to get my feet used to what it’s like to walk in real shoes again.
Yes it’s “back-to-school” time. There’s no escaping it, and I’m actually even starting to like the idea!
In the few last days, I even surprised myself by going into full “new me” mode. In terms of beauty prep, I’ve just cut my hair, I’m whitening my teeth, and I’m about to book a facial that I hope will give me new skin. Aaah, dreams.
As for fashion, well… I’m starting to think about “the woman I want to be this year”.
So I thought it would be cool to share this series we just shot for Matchesfashion.com with you.
The Matchesfashion.com team asked me to select a few fall outfits from their site and I came up with my ideal looks, from the super casual daytime look to the dress for a night out… It’s pretty much a shopping dream. Obviously, I had to send everything back, but there are a few things I know I’m going to buy, like this Joseph dress, the little Saint Laurent bag (I’ve been dreaming about it for several months), this Tomas Maier trench, these Acquazurra ballerina flats and, finally, this Equipment shirt dress. So here are a few photos of me (and Tenna) wearing the outfits I picked out.
I still don’t quite know exactly what “woman I want to be this year” (usually I never answer this question and the seasons pass by and I’m just… me), but I’m getting a clearer and clearer idea about it. Here’s to a great fall season!!!
