Growing up in Valladolid it wasn’t necessary to have clothes for each specific season, as we only had two seasons, 2 months of summer and 10 months of winter, hahaha. But in the last few years the weather patterns are shifting unexpectedly (yep, climate change is here and planning on staying) so, I have been wearing my Autumn outfits. One of the things I like the most about this time of the year is the colour palette, the low saturated greens, oranges and yellows. They look so beautiful and cosy! For this occasion, I have revived a jacket from last year (you can see more about it here) that I can’t stop wearing. Thanks to its colourful patches it works quite well with most colours and outfits.
I spend this weekend with my girlfriends and I was delighted to find out how interested they were about sustainability and how they are all implementing changes in their lives to reduce their carbon footprint. One of them ask me what was the one thing she could do to have a more sustainable wardrobe. Of course, my answer was simple and doable by anyone, let’s start by using what we already have and getting the most usage out of it. Secondly, we can invest in timeless good quality clothes that will last forever, ideally, we should go for a sustainable brand and natural fibre but there are many ways to be sustainable, as explained here.
Few months ago I come across Naav, a new sustainable clothing brand from India. Avneet Adwani, the founder of Naav, has been working in fashion for more than 15 years. Over a year ago she decided to start this fashion project with the intention of empowering the women in her community by offering them a dignifying job through the use of their skills.
Have you ever thought to yourself, I would like to wear what that other person is wearing, but knowing that you will never buy that garment? I know how it feels, and that’s the reason I love borrowing clothes from my sister’s wardrobe. I get to be a new person with a completely new wardrobe without having to consume or waste natural resources and it feels great! For this occasion, I got this knitted top with a back detail to fall in love with! And you might be wondering, can it get any better? Actually, yes, it can!! I also borrowed some of my mother jewellery pieces!
Today, I want to share my latest pictures taken in Atlanta!!
I have a very big surprise for you all, even though some of my Instagram followers have probably guessed what I am talking about, I have returned back home to Majorca. A beautiful Spanish island in the Mediterranean sea!!
One of my best friends got married on Saturday in Valladolid, Spain. Since I have been living abroad I wanted a very Spanish look for the occasion so I chose two of the most iconic themes found in a flamencos dress; polka dots and a manila shawl.
10 Days ago was officially the last day of Summer and in order to say bye to my favourite season, I want to share with you these beautiful summer night pictures we took a couple of weeks ago.
During my trip to Peru I come across a wonderful concept store L’ Atelier Café-Concept in Cusco full of beautifully designed Peruvian artisan products. My husband really liked the graphic t-shirts of a lion wearing a peruvian hat, after some research we ended up meeting with Joy, the founder of the Ikarus brand.
After the NYFW it is clear that strong colours are going to be hot next season. Colours and trends are closely related to the social and political climate in which we live, and all these strong colour are a declaration of optimism. The world is going through hard times, but we decided to stay positive and hope that things will work out for the best!
