Yes, same accessories from last post! But hey,they call them basics for a reason! Plus, I’m still on transit and working with two suitcases (Ok, ok…and a third one solely for my shoes….), so I need to be extremely selective with my purchases and although I’m not a shopping addict or anything like that, sometimes it can get pretty darn hard to have self control.

Spring has officially started here in Brazil and although I’m in a pastel nails kind of mood, matching my wardrobe with the current season feels boring to me.

I went for nude heels to make the brick color stand out.
It took me a while to appreciate the beauty of normcore. I love heels —I’ve made that clear with the name of my blog — and during years I wouldn’t wear anything but heels! Nowadays I go everywhere by walking and I’m convinced that a pair of comfy shoes can be as chic as killer stilettos. White Keds are my go to, especially when I’m running late for class, they’re understated yet feminine at the same time and can make any outfit fashionable without looking like you’re trying too hard.
