blazer: vintage | t-shirt: Les Coyotes de Paris | jeans: Pull&Bear | sneakers: Adidas

 

This blazer has a story. About 8 years ago I found blogosphere and I started being an assiduous reader of fashion blogs. And I was excited about vintage (in fact, I’m still excited!). I was excited about my mom’s clothes when she was my age and with the clothes that my grandma did to her.

I remember that the girl of one of the first blogs that I started to follow at that time, used to wear a lot of vintage, oversized blazers, plisse skirts and silk blouses. I confess that I no longer remember the blog’s name and today it doesn’t exist anymore. Meanwhile, she decided to sell some of her clothes and this yellow blazer was one of them. Vintage, good cut, a little oversized and yellow. Yellow!! A yellow piece is a strong piece, a yellow blazer is THE PIECE!

I asked my grandma to sew white fabric into the sleeves to show the detail when bending them. That detail was a trend at the time, but I still like it. I wore this blazer a lot, specially during the warm months. Then I gave it a break, don’t know why. But now I look at it the same way again. It’s a huge piece that does everything. It’s the piece that transforms any basic look into a beautiful one. And the proof of this is that here I’m wearing it with jeans and a basic white tee. Easier it’s difficult. I hope you like it.

Este blazer tem uma história. À cerca de 8 anos descobri a blogosfera e comecei a ser leitora assídua. Maioritariamente blogues de moda. E andava entusiasmada com o vintage (aliás, ainda ando), andava entusiasmada com as roupas da minha mãe quando ela tinha a minha idade e com as roupas que a minha avó lhe fazia.

Lembro-me que a rapariga por detrás de um dos primeiros blogues que comecei a seguir usava imenso peças vintage, blazers largos, saias plissadas, camisas de seda, etc. Confesso que já não me lembro do nome e hoje o blogue já não existe. Entretanto ela decidiu vender algumas peças que usava e este blazer foi uma delas. Vintage, bom corte, um pouco oversized e amarelo. Amarelo!! Uma peça amarela é uma peça forte, um blazer amarelo é A PEÇA!

Pedi à minha avó que forrasse as mangas com tecido branco para aparecer na dobra da manga, era um detalhe que se usava muito e eu ainda continuo a gostar. Usava o blazer imenso, especialmente nos meses mais quentes. Depois dei-lhe uma pausa, não sei bem porquê. Mas agora voltei a olhar para ele da mesma maneira. É uma peça que faz tudo. É a peça que transforma qualquer look básico e simples num look bonito, e a prova disso é que aqui estou a usá-lo apenas com uns jeans e uma t-shirt branca. Mais fácil é difícil. Espero que gostem.

Graphic tees are my favorite summer piece right now. If it were not the t-shirt, the easiest and coolest piece to wear during summer days. I chose some of my favorites. Hope you feel inspired.

Neste momento a minha peça favorita deste Verão são as t-shirts com textos. Não fosse a t-shirt a peça mais fácil e cool de vestir nos dias mais quentes. Eu escolhi algumas das minhas favoritas. Espero que te sintas inspirada (o).

t-shirt: Stradivarius (without patches) | trousers: mom | sneakers: Adidas | earrings: Mango

Hi there! Here I am with a typical spring outfit, fresh and floral. When I saw, somewhere on Instagram, a white t-shirt with two rose patches, I really loved it and I decided to do one for myself. I bought these two patches on ebay and paste it in a white tee. To complete the outfit, I decided to combine it with these floral vintage trousers that were from my mom when she was young. For the final touch, I used these awesome face earrings. I had been looking for them a few time ago, but they were completely sold out even on the website. Unexpectedly, I found them last week. I really love them, they are so different and beautiful. Hope you like this combination. Happy Easter everyone!
