Have you ever bought anything for holiday specially? Or some very holiday looking items? And ended up using it only once or not at all… I sure have some of them. I have a giant sun hat bought 2 years ago for my dream beach holiday and so far I have been to beach few times but the hat was never travelled with me. It is too huge to carry! Don’t even talk about my countless straw bags, hats and baskets! I am crazy about them! It is such a shame that certain holiday looking things that you like so much but you probably only have 2 or 3 holidays a year. But thanks to fashion nowadays, if you style it well, you can wear pretty much anything you want even in the city. Especially espadrilles, straw bags and baskets are basically main Summer trends these years. And I just can’t get enough of them! They make me feel like on holidays all the time.
I am actually kind of on holiday looks everyday. You may say I am one of the lucky ones that I can wear pretty much everything both at work and leisure. I used to work for a company called Asprey years ago. It is a very formal company with lots of marketing, accounting departments and etc. In the office building, everybody dress super formal apart from the fashion studio where I worked. Once we received an email from head office “kindly” asking us not to look “sloppy” and no flip-flops as we have to share the same entrance as the formal departments. The first question my colleague asked after receiving this email was “how about if they are from Prada?” haha 😛 The day after, everyone still came in in whatever they wanted… Well, I guess you can never change or put a tie on designers!
But for those “less lucky” you who have to wear suit or uniform for work. You still have evening or weekend to use your favourite pieces even in the city than keeping them in the storage.
In the photos here, I was wearing my super cute eyes espadrilles from Myrthis. A pair of old coated jeans from AllSaints, Mango Top and accessorised with my old Zara straw hat and straw basket bag. You can find them through the links or in the featured/similar items list and as I mentioned earlier I am crazy about straw bags, baskets and hats.
