Sometimes I feel super blessed to be bi-cultural because of how much horizon I can see and cover. I feel like I can understand other cultures so much better. But most of the time, I find it difficult and hard to deal with, especially with the fact that I cannot seem to find a true place in which I fit in. I mean, in my heart I am African, in my dreams I am Mexican, I speak Spanish and Italian, I am an avid German fan and I die for Chinese food…I feel like the whole world is my home (except when I am with my hubby, then that truly is home). The point of this post is that today I woke up feeling quite rebellious (a huge trait I have), and felt like my Canadian, North American side needed to come out. My inner Louise was itching to come out. And so, this is how I decided to dress this morning…a mix of Louise, with a little bit of badass, a little bit of attitude, and a little bit of hate for love.
This is how my look/style turned out….featuring my new favorite vintage BB sunglasses from mum:
What I wore:
SHRUG: Lucky Brand ♣ TOP: Girl Boss tee from Simmons ♣ JEANS: High rise Gap denim ♣ SHOES: Topshop ♣ SUNGLASSES: Vintage ♣ RINGS: Vintage
I haven’t been able to wear any other shoe lately, I love these ones too damn much…and although my shoe wardrobe is quite big, this Topshop heel is the one i reach out for the most. I find that those shoes add more va va voom to any outfit because the heel is quite high and it’s velvet.
These rings were purchased by mum…from a cute little antique shop in Montréal. They’re amazing and they add the perfect gypsy/bohemian to any outfit.
I was feeling very me in this outfit. I will most of the time prefer jeans over anything else…although sometimes I itch to dress ‘decent’ and ‘appropriate’ or ‘lady-like’ if you will….but today was one of those days where I gave no importance to anything else but comfort and freedom. I know it might sound weird, but dressing up to your own liking is liberating and freeing as you can easily express yourself without too much effort. This is why fashion and style is so important to me, because I speak way too many languages, I get lost and can’t find my words…I just choose to dress a certain way and voila the trick is done!
