Sunday walk

Sunday-walk-Inca-Tulips-and-Heels

When I moved to Brazil at the begining of the year I had to ditch and donate almost all of my clothes to fit my wardrobe into two suitcases. It was traumatic, I’m not going to lie,  but also liberating as I kept the things I knew I was really going to wear and learned that you don’t need a wardrobe full of clothes if you have a few versatile pieces and know how to make the most of them, it’s the case of this chambray shirt which I just can’t stop wearing.

Head to toe denim

Denim-look-Tulips-and-Heels1

I wore my first pair of jeans at preschool: they had typographic textures at the knees and were provided to every student in public school at the beginning of the year, so everyone was wearing them too. I refused to wear such a mainstream piece so I only wore them once. It was until the age of twelve or so when I got the coolest vintage bottom-zippered jeans from my aunt that I surrendered to denim love. Then, I went from American-flag patched ones to a loudly paneled fuchsia pair. I guess I just didn’t like plain denim, even though I wore the no visible sewing lines jeans that were so trendy at the time, proving that marketing when done right can sell you pretty much anything.
