ALWAYS

Though we technically have 24/7 non stop all year summer here, it's always an excitement to welcome this particular season. So what's better than a bouquet of flowers and some artsy cactus layout to begin? 

top: MONKI, jeans: TOPSHOP, boots: MARC & STUART, bracelet: BALENCIAGA


Wearing once again, my bae the classic leather Chelsea boots. Low key in process of hunting another versatile pair like this soo wish me luck and I'm open to suggestions? ;) And YES, I'm wearing jeans finally thank god bc honestly I'm not a big fan. A loyal member of the Sweatpants > Jeans club but this one from Topshop is too comfy and chic to resist. 

I think it's safe to say just how trendy turtleneck has been this past few months, and I'm absolutely loving every bits of this trend. Been hunting for a perfect piece for so long, so when I found this one from Monki (#funfact one of my most go-to brand), I'm hooked right away. 

Did I mention they have some of the CUTEST if not, raddest collection of accessories? Yas I'm talking bout pizza clutch, floral sunglasses, etc etc.

Moving on from all the cuteness...While we're basically still feeling the "Mother's day vibes" I'm so lucky my mom has a huge passion when it comes to flowers. My days were mostly filled either with helping her choose the right colours, or taking photos of it. 

Definitely made my life much more colourful and it's always a joy to have it as a prop such as this one. Here's one easy life hack, if a photo, flat-lay, or pretty much anything looks plain or boring, just add some flowers. Simply because there's no such thing as hideous flowers. 

I guess that's why flowers are the perfect metaphor of our own bodies? This mindset is kinda stuck in my head as I'm currently in a point where I start to feel insecure/unhappy with my body. That being said, whenever any of you get through the same thing, just think of how flowers may varied when it comes to colours, size, shapes. But just because a daisy is different from roses, doesn't mean it look any less pretty. I suck with words so hope this helps out. x 





Love,

M.x

  4. I love this outfit, it's perfect! I'm loving the whole turtle neck/mock neck trend as well :) Also, I feel the same about flowers lol! I was always fortunate to grow up around flowers because my grandma and mom would always buy fresh ones at the market or plant them in spring! Flowers change everything :)

  36. I love my chelsea boots as well! I highly recommend checking ASOS! I bought mine for around $60-70 USD for genuine leather. They were stiff at first, but after breaking them in they're super comfy! :)
