It’s been a long time since I last wrote for you.
OK, it’s been two weeks. Well…
It turned out that I’m much more busy and tired during holidays, than I was while going to school. Finding time for work, studying for exams, writing and maintaining what so called social life is extremely tough and leaves me with 5 hours of sleep at most. I know that that’s what I need to do in order to achieve what I truly want in life (so it’s almost like I want to wake up at 5:30… maybe I should even enjoy it?). I want to be able to post articles here as frequently as possible, so no matter how many other things are going on in my days, there’s no way I’m not going to make it work. Especially since MyVanityFlare is what gives me so much inspiration and power. I think that it comes from the knowledge that maybe what I write is valuable to you.
As for today’s post – it is a photoshoot that was taken on a very busy Sunday and was almost cancelled due to thunder, which thankfully stopped half an hour earlier. Three hours of walking around Warsaw, watching Vistula and searching for the perfect scenery have resulted in many photos, that I’ll be uploading here and on @myvanityflare Instagram in the upcoming days.
The outfits that I’ll be presenting, so this one too, all are heat-friendly and for the most part they are a visualization of one of my previous posts on this season’s essentials. They also feature one of 2018 summer’s trends – wearing sneakers with everything. To me this concept is not something new, not because I’m an avid fan of these shoes, but simply because my lifestyle requires so much walking, running and just in general being constantly in a rush, that usually heels can’t be my choice ( they still are my choice way too often…but who doesn’t love the confidence boost that they give?).
This stylization is one of my personal summer staples. I literally wear it all the time. Even now, when it’s rather cold in Warsaw I still put on this romper, but with sheer black tights and a striped Balmain-like jacket. It’s actually supposed to be a “night-out” piece, but I do not care about what is written on the label. You also shouldn’t. It is wrapped around waist, which is always great for elongating the silhouette. It has lower back and it kind of became a little black dress for me.
Another garment that I want to talk a bit more about is the bag. I was looking for the perfect shopper, that would be able to fit my whole life inside. Doesn’t sound that hard, does it? The thing is, I didn’t want it to be made of genuine leather. That is for the ethical reasons. I’m trying to support as little cruelty to animals as possible in every aspect of my existence. I knew that my accessories don’t have to be leather in order to be high-quality and extraordinary. After more than a year of searching, I finally bought my dream bag. It’s classy and elegant, but certainly not basic. i love it’s „snake” material, gold details, lack of big brand logo and practicality. It was also much more affordable than similar, leather models.
These shots were taken in two locations, but one is literally on the opposite side of the street to the other. Leaves are what covers the BUW-Library of Warsaw University facade and the copper-turquoise wall was a surprising discovery that we were more than excited to stumble upon.
I hope that you’ll enjoy this gallery and that it will give you some real-life examples of how to style The only 5 pieces of clothing you’ll need this summer.
