From the boys

Whoever put the brakes on winter for the past few days, I thank them. Friday was a beautiful day to walk around in a light jacket and eat ice cream. Would you believe me if I said half of my outfit came from the men's section? There is something extra relaxed about the roominess and slouch of men's clothes. Roll sleeves up, tuck hems in, no one would know the difference. I'm all about comfort these days and have even thought about wearing sweatpants in public (I always chicken out though!).

Many of you have asked about these sneakers that I've been living in on Instagram. Unfortunately this black/white colorway is hard to find, but if you're a size 9 or 10 (they run big), Totokaelo has just that left. I've also ditched all my other bags for the time being for the Halzan that I picked up in Paris. It's super versatile and is particularly beautiful in harsh sunlight.

  2. The Halzan is really something! Is it in natural-sand or maybe some other color not displayed in Herm├Ęs web sight? Love your blog!

  3. Cute outfit! I'm all about that gamine look/persona. Sometimes I find it even more sexy than dressing girly. And don't chicken out on sweatpants in public! Pair it with a relaxed button up or a cute and cozy sweater and you're good to go.

  4. Hi Alice! Was just wondering how do you edit you iphone photos for the colours to pop out so lovely? :O

    1. This was a combination of Snapseed and VSCO to add brightness/contrast and add a bit of color shift.

    2. Thank you so much for your reply! do you ever apply the VSCO filters to your iphone snaps?

      I'm always so amazed by how you can capture the natural tones of the subject from your iphone!

    3. Yes I used the VSCO app for these. I think I used a bit of J1 for the filter.

  7. That's a really nice laid back look. I guess you went for the smaller sizes when shopping the men's section? All of them are kind of oversized for a girl anyway :D
