How I wore blue & gray in the forest

Portrait in the forest - Kittenhood

Second-hand shirt + Style Stalker skirt + Hema socks + Bianco shoes 

Just when I thought autumn was here and I was starting to put my sandals and sundresses away, it’s summer again. Yesterday afternoon we went to a mobile market, bought some fruits and veggies and homemade goodies, and took them on a picnic on a hill. It was really lovely since no one else was out there on a weekday afternoon. Oh, the perks of being a freelancer! This forest was just nearby, and it looked ethereal in the softly filtered light. So that’s where we took pictures. And P.S: this is my favorite shirt now and I don’t even care that it seems like I haven’t worn anything else in ages. It’s a small size from the men’s section, and it’s perfection.

Thrifted pajama top + handmade skirt + Happiness Boutique necklace (c/o) + COS shoes 

Every piece in this outfit has a story to it. None of the stories is related to ironing, as you can probably tell. The shirt is actually a pajama top I found in a second-hand shop. But with beautiful cat print and Japanese kanji, it was hard to resist. And while I haven’t worn it outside the house before, no one asked me if I’m wearing pajamas, so I’ll take that as a victory.

The skirt is made by my friend G., who also made me this skirt. She says it’s no big deal, but I really admire her determination and skill when it comes to sewing. I know my own sewing machine has been gathering dust for months!

As for the necklace, it’s actually a set of three delicate necklaces from Happiness Boutique. They sell all sorts of beautiful jewelry, but this necklace caught my eye and stole my heart. The three look great together, but can also be worn individually, which I simply adore. The hexagon one has already been included in a couple of (offline) outfits, and I imagine it will quickly become my favorite. 

Finally, the shoes are a lucky outlet find from last year. Because you can’t say no to COS shoes in your size when they appear out of the blue.

Persunmall Dress - Kittenhood

How I wore a sparkly, sparkly dress

Summer portrait - KittenhoodPersunmall dress (c/o) 

This is one of the few outfits I put together only for the sake of the blog and that don’t actually get to be worn out on the street. A fabulous wedding, maybe, but not the street. This dress is not one that you can wear lightly. It transports you and it makes you want to twirl and dance. If you think about it, it’s just sequins. But combined with the maxi length and tulle, the dress screams mermaid-princess! With that in mind, I wanted to photograph it somewhere by the water, which is how I came across this lake. It’s normally used for fishing, so why not fish out an outfit post? I felt it didn’t need any more accessories, so I let it shine on its own. 

P.S. The dress is already out of stock, but you can find plenty of shiny, pretty dresses on Persun Mall

How I wore red & green at La Geode

Green Skirt - KittenhoodMerlot shirt + skirt bought in Japan + Hema socks + flea market shoes

I bought this shirt and skirt from the same random shop in Japan, and after trying them I knew I would wear them together. I love them both to pieces – the shirt has the cutest print and the skirt has the best cut – so I had to take them with me to Paris. We took these pictures at the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie, which was unfortunately closed for the time being. It’s too bad we didn’t get to see a movie inside La Géode, but the whole area and park were really cool anyway. I love the huge parks in Paris (I told you about my favorite here), that you can get lost in them and discover fun spots anytime, anywhere.

You know how when you’re in a long-term relationship you start cultivating the same interests as the person you’re with? Yeah, that, annoying. I like to think of myself as an independent woman with particular passions of my own, but I also find it impossible not to get into the same things as my guy is. So, while I’ve never been interested in architecture more than the next Pinterest-obsessed person, I find myself visiting houses by Le Corbusier twice in two weeks. I find myself buying a pin of his famous Modulor from the Maison La Roche, which is where these snaps were taken. It looks pretty generic from these pictures, but the interior is rather stunning. And here’s the other house we visited last week, a beauty in its own right. 

As for my outfit, it’s a classic case of dressing for comfort and against the heat. With over 30ºC on a daily basis, it’s hard to walk around in anything but a casual, wrinkle-free dress, and flats. And this is what I’ve been wearing, mes chères, and this is what I’ll keep wearing. No one knows me here, shhh!

One way or another, I managed to have a whole month pass since my last outfit post. I think it’s the first time in the history of this blog! But the truth is I’ve been on the road a lot, and that doesn’t always translate in picture-pretty outfits. Last month, for example, I was surprised by and completely unprepared for the cold, rainy weather in Hamburg. No pictures there. But now that I’m in the sunniest of all Parises, it’s time to show off this new skirt, which  features a lovely single iris printed on the side. We had lots of these flowers around the garden when I was growing up, and I adore their scent. I paired the skirt with more soft colors for a day of walking around Paris, which started at the Biblioteque Nationale de France (where the photos were taken) and ended with food and drinks on the bank of the Seine.

 Expo UAD 2015 - Kittenhood

Lucluc dress + Andreea Tavitian bag + Meduse jelly sandals + Uniqlo sunglasses

I’ve already told you about Gala UAD a bunch of times, but there’s more to it. In a related event, art graduates from all sections participate in a massive exhibition every year, which marks the end of their school activity. The location is always the same: Expo Transilvania, a huge exhibition space that has nothing to do with art outside of this event. I went to check it out yesterday, and it was a mix of really good ideas (especially in the furniture design department) and uninspired ones. After going through dozens of art works, it was time for some pictures next to this thing made of tubes. 

My sailor-style dress is from Lucluc, and it’s just darling! The fabric is really good quality, the loose fit is perfect for summer, it has pockets and that scarf detail is adorable. I paired it with these jelly sandals I bought from someone online, and could already imagine myself on vacation, walking the streets of a small fishermen town somewhere idyllic. Outfits can have that effect on people.

Baby Goat - Kittenhood

Darling dress + Sincerely Sweet Boutique cardigan + COS socks + flea market shoes 

See the angel looking baby goat above? Not so much of an angel in real life. After sucking my fingers like a nursing bottle, he took it to the next level and bit me really hard with his jaw teeth. I had to stop the bleeding with paper towels and put a band-aid on, but that’s what you get when you let baby goats do whatever they want with you. 

To put things in context, last weekend we visited a nearby goat farm. The people there grow them for milk, and there were probably two hundred of them at the time, many of which were babies. Baby goats are adorable – they’re really friendly and they like being petted, they follow humans around, and they will try to eat anything (see the picture where one of them was getting a taste of my dress; my shoe laces were also untied several times). Plus they hop and climb wonderfully, and they like to practice their horn fighting in pairs. There were also lots of dogs and cats around the farm, and these two horses. Horses were my weakness when I was a child, and I still can’t resist them now. These two are mother and daughter, and they’re for riding only. While I didn’t get to ride them, I did get a kiss from the young one.

Blue & Black Outfit - Kittenhood
Rosewe shirt + Stradivarius skirt + We Love Colors tights (c/o) + pins from Japan + Shabbies Amsterdam clogs (thrifted)

As a person who didn’t grow up around cars, I couldn’t conceive the entirety of their benefits for the longest of times. Trains took me places, and planes and buses and bikes and my very own feet. But as a car crawled its way into my life recently, I feel like the possibilities are endless. Take outfit pictures, for example. I can just get in the car and go to this beautiful lake nearby for this purpose. Goodbye, improvised photo shoots in back alleys! New times are coming. I hope to get my licence soon (I know, I should have done that 10 years ago) and gain even more freedom of movement. Meanwhile, this is what I wore yesterday when we drove to the lake and had a rainy picnic. Not the most practical choice of footwear, but I just love those clogs. And they’re surprisingly cute with tights!
