Saturday was the perfect late spring day. When we woke up, the sun was shining, and for the first time this year, I was happy half of our Saturday was filled with errands that required us to be outside. The other half of the day was all about D‘s birthday party. We both couldn’t wait to feel the warm air and the hot rays on our faces, so right before we started our to-do list, we decided to have a photoshoot in the park. Obviously, since the weather is this nice, we are determined to have as many photoshoots as possible.
I decided to embrace the bare shoulders trend coupled with espadrilles. The dress is from ZARA and I love it as I feel it is a combo between two very popular trends: the shirt dress and the peasant bohemian dress. I felt very comfortable while wearing it even though, from time to time, I did feel like I was dressed in a paper bag. I went for the espadrilles because I knew we had a lot of running around to do and wedges or heels simply would not have been practical. True, I could’ve opted for ballerinas, but right now I love everything with a rope sole.
Dress – ZARA; Shoes – Vidoretta; Bag – Furla; Bling – Swarovski (ring and bracelet), Tomorrowland and Pandora; Watch – Longines; Shades – Ray-Ban
I found these wonderful multicoloured espadrilles in Madrid at Vidoretta and simply loved the fact that they’re extremely versatile and comfortable. The bag is from Furla and right now, the only thing that bugs me about it is that it doesn’t have a shoulder strap. I have to wear it on my left arm constantly until my tattoo heals and I hate that because most of the time my left arm is useless. As blings, I wore my Longines watch, my usual Tomorrowland and Pandora rings and my Swarovski bracelet and ring.
T-shirt – Massimo Dutti; Pants – ZARA; Shoes – Pull and Bear; Watch – Longines; Bling – Fossil and Constantin Nautics
I kept my hair as casual as possible as I decided in the morning that I don’t feel like doing anything to it. To finish the look, I wore my flowery Ray-Ban sunglasses, which feel like I have summer on my face.
As opposed to me, D chose a darker blue combo, but he also chose espadrilles. He wore a pair of printed chinos from ZARA, paired with a t-shirt from Massimo Dutti. What I love about this t-shirt is the fact that it doesn’t have the traditional polo collar, but rather a non-collar. He got his espadrilles from Pull and Bear a few years ago, but since this trend is here to stay, you can find loads of options online and in stores right now.
D also wore his Longines watch and as usual paired it with his Fossil bracelet and his Constantin Nautics necklace. Since he’s our personal photographer, he rarely has the chance to wear sunglasses.
That stop on the park, on our way to the market really gave us the energy to complete all our tasks for the day and also helped us enjoy the party that came afterwards (not that we needed anything to help us enjoy a party). Literally, thanks to our friends and the lovely weather, Saturday the 28th is a day to remember for us.
