THE ESSENTIAL / ISSUE



On growing up: in which the wind howls, the waves crash, the rain pours down, and our lonely heroine dreams of being Audrey Hepburn. - Grace Coddington 


top & jeans: TOPSHOP, outerwear: MASSIMO DUTTI, shoes: ADIDAS Y3

There are many many terms of essential when it comes to life. For starters, the hierarchy of needs. Or on a more stylish route, the fashion essentials; which when it comes to me, would absolutely be leather jacket, denim shorts, leather boots, repeat. 

These past few days have been pretty rough to me, the sudden wake up call of adulthood and job/education insecurity. Call me exaggerating but it's true. I used to think that it was essential to succeed and wins at life on a young age. I rush things and there's always this anxiety of not being good enough.

So I kinda did a bit of brainstorming this week (that is, if you call binge eating sushi while in deep thoughts brainstorming, ha!) And I thought, 'what the hell do I really wanna achieve in life tho?'. Get fully loaded? Have no worries in life and just chilling by the pool drinking mojitos with my 10 kids? Oh well..

And thus I decided that I want to explore the world, in any way possible. Get rich in knowledge by taking lots of courses, surrounded by family, etc etc. Well that's for now, but who knows what my essential list would take me 5 years ahead? So whatever or whoever you love, take that path and do what your heart tells. If being a sandwich, ballerina or even reggae singer makes you happy, then go fucking do it. Nothing can stop you.

That I think, is the most essential thing in life. 



Love,
M.x

  1. I completely agree with you. A leather jacket is an essential for anyone. As for the adult wake-up call. I understand what you're going through. I don't have the answer. But trust me you're not alone!

  14. This look is SO classic, and love your comparison of the hierarchy of needs in terms of fashion! It's important for us to stop and take stock of what we want in life, especially for our generation since it's harder for us to get on our feet! Sounds like you have a great plan :)
