Army Brats…

Taking this photoshoot to the woods and dressing accordingly. This post will be like some of those ‘Sunday posts’ where there will be barely any text as we are on the road to the greatest festival of the summer – UNTOLD, so not much time for texting as a full day on the road awaits us, but I didn’t want to stop posting.In other words, if you want a live update on what’s happening at UNTOLD, you should check our Facebook page as well as out Instagram accounts (L and D).

Back to this short fashion post. This is exactly the type of dress that will carry me through a good chunk of autumn despite the fact that it is a summer piece. Unfortunately I couldn’t find it online anymore, but I did get it from Mango and I linked an alternative. Why it’s ok to wear it in autumn as well? Well first of all the colour, just imagine it paired with oxblood tights and wellington boots or high-heeled booties. Then there’s the fabric which is kinda thick but also kinda flow-y. And lastly, you can just ignore that fact that it doesn’t provide any arm heat as you can either wear it over a blouse or layer a cardigan. I will definitely shoot it during this autumn as well just to prove a point. Another great thing about it is the fact that it has got room, I honestly think that it can carry my up until the seventh month of the pregnancy.

On me:

Dress – Mango; Shoes – Mango; Bag – Mango; Bling – Swarovski, Tomorrowland and Pandora; Watch – Tissot

Looks like┬álately I’ve been obsessed with wedges, because let’s be honest, whenever we feel like we gained a few kgs, no matter the reason, we immediately want to look taller and wedges are the the perfect compromise between height and comfort. These wedges are also from Mango, and come to think about it, my entire outfit is from Mango as the bag is also Mango. Well, you can’t beat a great discount and great quality!

On D:

T-shirt – Mango; Shorts – Scotch and Soda; Shoes – VAS; Bling – Constantin Nautics; Watch – Tissot

D also wanted to get lost in the scenery and went for a kaki green outfit. Despite the fact that he didn’t wear a full Mango outfit, he did wear a Mango t-shirt. Apparently we are Mango addicts! His shorts are one of my favourites and they are from Scotch and Soda and I think that he should buy more shorts from them as opposed from H&M. For comfort reasons and because it was hot as hell when we took these photos, he wore his VAS flip-flops, decision which he immediately regretted as a forest environment and flip-flops do not go well together.

Accessories-wise, I opted for a gold Swarovski bracelet while D opted for his latest Constantin Nautics obsession bracelet. I also wore a multitude of rings including my Tomorrowland and Pandora rings and we both wore out Tissot watches.

Although this was supposed to be a short, barely-any-text post, apparently I can’t stop rambling and this turned out to be a rather decent sized post. I will try and keep it short the next time I will be writing on the road. Do not forget to follow our UNTOLD experience while also reading out posts!

Countryside chic!

Lately, I found myself loving shirt dresses, especially when combined with gladiator sandals.for some reason, this combo just screams festival-relax-fun. I especially love a shirt dress that has a masculine feel to it, if it’s light blue, than it’s a must-have in my closet. The only downside for rather short people like me (I’m 1,65 m) is that they can drown you so the obvious solution is a belt.

For this outfit I chose a ZARA shirt dress which is a) very cheap and b) very versatile. As with any trendy purchase, if it’s not a classic piece that will withstand the test of time, then just go for a cheaper version from that you can find in most shops right now. As for the versatility of this shirt dress, you see it here in a festival environment, but pair it with Loubs and you get an dinner-ready outfit and if you un-button it and combine it with a neon swimsuit you’ve got a very trendy cover-up. I will at some point shoot this exact shirt dress in the above mentioned combos.

On me:

Dress – ZARA; Belt – Massimo Dutti; Shoes – Gioseppo; Bag – Furla; Bling – Tomorroland, Pandora and Swarovski; Watch – Daniel Wellington

Today my choice were these wonderful gladiator sandals from Gioseppo that I got in Madrid. These sandals were pretty popular in Madrid, as I had to run all over the city to find them because they were sold out everywhere except for one store. Obviously a braided brown belt was the best choice to perfectly match the hippie feel of the sandals. I decided to wear my Furla mini Metropolis and my usual Pandora and Tomorrowland rings paired with a Swarovski cocktail ring, because I felt like I needed a little bling. Both D and I wore our Daniel Wellington watches with matching straps, as we bought at least a dozen straps for our very versatile watches.

On D:

T-shirt – Calvin Klein; Pants – ZARA; Shoes – Vas; Bling – Constantin Nautics and Fossil; Watch – Daniel Wellington

D also chose a blue festival look. He paired his ‘Frodo’ pants from ZARA with a polo t-shirt from Calvin Klein, which in my opinion, is the perfect age-appropriate combo for summer festivals. To match my outfit all the way, he wore his brown leather flip-flops that he also got from Madrid, but fortunately, we didn’t have to run all over Madrid to find them. Naturally, he wore his bracelets from Fossil and Constantin Nautics. For some reason, we just love Constantin Nautics bracelets because they’re beautifully crafted, you can find them in hundreds of colour combos and therefore you can match them to any outfit and they are seriously affordable.

We had a great time shooting these outfits and even though I didn’t really like the setting, in the end I loved the way the photos turned out. I can’t wait for all those summer festivals but I also can’t wait to shoot this shirt dress with stilettos.
