Wearing a dress is probably the easiest way to dress up during the summer months. One garment and done. If it’s really really really hot, you don’t even have to bother with a jacket although bigger chance I probably would still bring one just in case. That’s just the kind of person I am.
And jersey is just an easy material, not too thick so I don’t feel suffocated inside. I am not one to wear a sleeveless dress (or tops) but when the sun is basically on top of my head 1) I don’t want to risk having a t-shirt tan and 2) It’s just bloody hot! I kind of have no option.
The easiest and comfiest and the most me way of dressing this is by wearing sneakers as footwear of choice. I tried with my Isabel Marant Etoile Dicker boots once but it’s just not right. I’m not giving up just yet though! There must be a way to wear the two together.
By the way, I just recently re-discovered LOVE.FEAT.ZACARI by Kendrick Lamar feat Zacari (duh). And it’s so good!!! Also Selfish by Future and Rihanna?! I’m on the mellow vibe lately. Maybe because the rain has been visiting us more often than the past few weeks. Despite being mellow, I still can appreciate the music video of LOYALTY.FEAT.RIHANNA by Kendrick Lamar and Rihanna. That is so siiick! Kung Fu Kenny is on FIRE! Ok I’m off topic now. Time to head out.
What do you guys listen to lately?
Adidas Stan Smith
Pro tip: buy kids version instead of adult version to save some bucks. Although the lapel of the shoes are different. The ones for kids are cushioned whilst the ones for adults are leather. Whichever you prefer, Adidas Stan Smith is a great sneakers to have. I am not saying any of my shoes are must haves for anybody out there because every person is different. But I would repurchase whenever this pair dies on me.
Converse All Stars
If there’s a holy grail sneakers for me, this pair is the one. Either low top or high top, or both?! My very first pair of Converse All Star were when I was in kindergarten and I don’t think I have been without ever since. I remember when I used to actually play basketball in them with blistery feet. Ah good times…
Converse Pro Mid
On the same day these shoes arrived, my coworker accidentally spilled sweet liquor on one shoe. And you know… these shoes are suede… So there’s still ugly mark on one shoe that surprisingly only I can see.
One pair of sneakers that I wished I didn’t have. I bought it during my holiday because it was cheaper than in The Netherlands. I coveted the shoes about three years ago. Now I know why I put off buying them for so long. The tongue area of the shoes are not long enough or tall enough to wear normal socks. I have to wear no show socks with them or else I’d just look weird. Also unfortunately, the cushion of the shoes are not that comfortable. I find the bottom of my feet hurting a lot after a long period of time wearing them. But I’d keep them for now if I can somehow make it work.
Now that I think of it, I actually still have two other pairs of sneakers. Lol. What a fail. So the rest of the collection will be using images I have found on my Instagram account.
I have zero clue what’s the shoes called. Deo bought them for me for my placeholder birthday gift before the actual birthday gift in 2015. I don’t wear them often because 1) they’re suede and 2) they’re a gift. So I don’t want to ruin them with accidental liquor spills.
Excuse the weird photo of choice. I miss that Mulberry Bayswater very much. I don’t really know whether or not I’m experiencing a seller regret since I know it’s a good decision to not have a luxury bag that doesn’t suit my lifestyle but god damn that bag is beautiful. Ok back to the shoes. I purchased this pair to replace my old exercise shoes. So I don’t really wear them out and about that often. More when I go to the gym (which is not that often) or when I play football (around once a week). Very good cushioning!
Onto the ballet flats category…
Me and ballet flats or ballerinas, we don’t get along. The amount of blisters I got from them initially will never compensate the comfort that I will get from them eventually. Because they will never be as comfortable as I want them to be. I don’t know why I still don’t want to forfeit from the pursue of a pair of comfortable black ballerinas. Maybe because I love how easy to slip in and out of them as well as looking more feminine.
Minnetonka Kilty Softsoles moccasins
Another pair of shoes that I have had for about three years now. This pair of flats are actually quite comfortable. I did get a blister or two on my first outing but not anymore. My boyfriend calls them my Pocahontas shoes. I used to have a pair prior to these ones from Forever 21 that I panic bought in Indonesia. And as a true nature of Forever 21 goodies, they did not last. So I upgraded them to the real deal Minnetonka pair.
I, however, need to figure out a way to tie the mothereffing bow to never ever come loose again whenever I wear them. Maybe I should just hot glue the knot.
Charles & Keith basic pump
Still on the breaking in period… Which feels like forever… I just can’t make these kinds of shoes work for my feet. They’re less bad than the others that I have had in the past though. I will keep them for the time being or else, I will ‘donate’ them to my cousins in Indonesia.
So I finally got my US visa after the whole ordeal that I had to go through. I had to miss the first interview because of my own stupidity. All the way from Eindhoven to Amsterdam driving since 5AM just to arrive sans passport. Who goes to a visa interview without a passport?! So I had to reschedule the appointment. Or rather, make a new one. For the second time I wasn’t taking any chances of being late so I stayed over in Amsterdam from the day before.
By the way I’m loving these Acne Studio jeans that I bought on sale. I ordered some pairs online before purchasing this pair and none of them fit! I was so disheartened. But decided to just go to the store and try a couple of pairs. And these ones are the winner. What I like about them is they don’t stretch even after wearing them back to back. I can’t say the same about some of my other jeans.
