    My mini spring capsule wardrobe

    Full closure: before I started my blog I didn’t care that much about my personal style. And although since I started blogging I put more effort into my appearance and my outfits, one thing didn’t change. My love for casual, minimal style, and basic pieces. Turns out I had a capsule wardrobe before I knew what it was. Let me tell you, there is 10 degrees and raining outside right now, so… so much for spring vibes. Oh and that one more minor inconvenience THAT THE WHOLE WORLD IS IN QUARANTINE. (I wrote a post about embracing chaos and not letting the media pressure you, you’ll find it here.) So…

I love clean and polished outfits, monochrome or nude palettes, and leaving any unnecessary detail. All these things can be found in Brutalism. Brutalist architecture was at its prime between the ’50s and ’70s but even then most of the people just considered the buildings hideous and monstrous. This opinion didn’t change until the last couple of years,…

    SO FLY(knit)

    Meet my favorite sneaker! Here comes the Nike Air Zoom Mariah Flyknit Racer. Truth be told I wasn’t really a sneakerhead before, but then I got this baby and it was the beginning of a new love. I am that loser who’s got such a messed up feet, even wearing slippers can be hurtful, so wearing sneakers – like all the time – is actually a pretty obvious choice for me. In 1981 Nike created the Air Mariah, which later became a classic with Nike’s most familiar color palette: white, blue, and infrared. Almost 30 years later Nike released the Air Zoom Mariah Flyknit with several Multi-Color variations. The result…
