Re-evaluating age and style evolution
These days I’m in Valencia celebrating my birthday with my sister and I’m obviously having a great time but before leaving I must confess I had some thoughts about getting older and coping with age.
But you know what ? Since I’m here, away, I’m starting to re-evaluate the whole thing from a style-wise point of view and actually I’m quite glad time is passing by so fruitfully. In fact, looking back at my older photos I cringe at some of the outfits I wore, but now I believe it was a necessary part of the process in defining my style.
But what do I mean exactly? If you ask me developing a style isn’t just about looking cute or appropriate. It’s more like matching your personality to your wardrobe and expressing your true self while building a look. In few words it’s all about finding and sharing you.
That’s precisely what I did when picking up what to wear for my birthday.
First of all I had to wear my winter ultimate staple: the embroidered lettering sweatshirt. I went for my burgundy “Voyenvysm” hoodie as is the perfect combo of cozy/classy. Perfect to keep me warm when the cold weather comes and lovely to layer under my go-to sartorial blazer by HOBA RtW which I’m so obsessed about so far: it makes me feel so powerful and confident! I believe that very woman should own a good fitting blazer to enact the real girl boss look or for dressing it down when needed.
I paired the top part with a pair of flowy palazzo pants in lurex fabric as I felt like incorporating some glitter to sparkle up my celebration day.
Bold make-up and earring completed my look.
Want another styling device I rely on when the cold weather comes? The overside duster coat layered over the blazer -I simply love this look. It’s elegant, it’s cosy but mostly, downright effortless.
For my birthday I wished to get to know me each year better than the last and being able to share on the outside what’s on the inside through my constantly evolving killer wardrobe. I envision it full different pieces and accessories that give a whole bunch of contrasting but interesting vibes. Cause the thing is I can love sartorial and bohemien, classic and edgy, colorful and minimalist, romantic and tomboyish, at the same time. I found out I’m all of this key and I need to keep my style true to myself.
