Many times we get so overloaded with a new trend that, before having time to go shopping, I have already lost my desire for certain garments and prints; it started with asymmetrical skirts, then studs, burgundy colour, New Balance sneakers, Zara skort, crop tops and now… tartan! Usually my fashionist instinct keeps me away of wearing trends that are ten a penny, even if I actually like them, but this time I said enough! I cannot take out of my life tartan shirts and blazers so easily just because they are the most tiresome trend of the season. Before being a trend, they are a classic, and classics are untouchable. Besides, this blazer has been a whole year in my closet waiting for me to use it and I had to give it an opportunity before its road to oblivion.

As it is still hot in Rome, I continue to avoid jeans and tights if I can (how good to feel my legs free!) and I just cover more critical points like my neck and try to keep my feet warm. And not only warm but also comfortable, as the sanpietrini of Rome are the hugest enemy for high heels and I usually avoid them because of that. The heels of this outfit, from Rockport, are extremely comfortable and are fine for Roman streets.

I leave you here as well my interview (in Galician) of last week in the Radio Galega. I hope you like it (if you can understand Galician, Portuguese or Spanish)!

Today, a very “man repeller outfit (and probably women repeller too!). But I had to show you anyway these 80s high-waisted jeans (that are miraculously my exact size) and I did’t found a better mix than this Oysho bra used as a crop top. Too much? It is, it is… so, as I was pushing the boat out, I tried as well a fake bob cut, do you like it?

The sandals are from Zara and the little round bag is the second model I have designed for Greenvalley. I this case, I could also choose its shape, so I thought that a round bag would be nice. Which one is your favourite? The round one or the yellow handbag of the last post?

Promises are made to keep so the first look of the autumn (even if it is not so autumnal) comes with Cultura Hipster. In this seventh meeting we walked to the Agrippa’s Pantheon, one of the best preserved roman temples (and my favorite), full of history and curiosities as Cultura Hipster says here.

But the main protagonist of the photos is not the Pantheon but this cute handbag, made with yellow sackcloth, that I have designed together with Tamara Valverde, an old college mate of mine that works now as a designer for the brand Greenvalley. Tamara makes every type of custom made projects but she is specialized in accessories like bags and wallets that every customer can customize, as they are handmade by herself. What do you think about my election?

For this colored handbag I chose a very simple and neutral outfit, with a white shirt and a pair of classic Levi’s shorts. I hope you like it!
