Outfit: Black

I’m sure psychologist would have a lot to tell about my recent love for black. The truth is, I feel the best when dressed in dark colors, whatever hidden message that brings. Perhaps it’s the crappy weather, perhaps really just my sub-conscience trying to say something, who knows. Whatever it is, it’s apparently not going away, so why not embrace it. I’m off, working on school and some secret blog projects, but I wish you all a happy Friday!

Black is not sad. Bright colors are what depresses me. They’re so empty. Black is poetic. How do you imagine a poet? In a bright yellow jacket? Probably not. ― Ann Demeulemeester

Books, Books, Books.

They say students of humanistic programs should always carry around at least one book and while I certainly don’t fall into that category, I still love them. Having one on the nightstand is good enough for me. From chick-flicks to more serious ones, one is always waiting for me to open it. I used to read tons on bus rides to school and since moving closer to the city, this is the only thing I’m really missing. Now, it may take a bit longer to finish it, but the feeling of stepping into new, imaginary world through the book is still the same. What is on my reading list right now? Let’s see.

Outfit: Let us dance in the sun

Will I sound boring and repetitive if I say I’m so excited for this lovely sunny, summer-ish weather? Well, I don’t care! A college party here, Friday after work beer and spontaneous Sunday movie night there, weeks are turning into never-ending party and I love it. I decided to ditch the couch and take action. So what if I need twice as big coffee in the morning, life is just so much better with a good company and sun high on the sky. This outfit below is from traditional weekly lunch with Eva last week and you can see that previously mentioned dresses over ripped pants obsession is still going strong! Even though black may not be the wisest choice for the heat wave we were experiencing, the flowiness of this boho dress made it all worth it.
