The Mood Of The Week(End)

Straight to the point.

I spent this last week choosing outfits a bit more “clean and professional” for my days at work. Not that I usually choose random outfits for work, but this week I was in a particular “picky” mood. In addition to that I had some new pieces in my wardrobe and I was dying to mix and match them.

This outfit might seem quite simple and formal, but actually it is a combination of strong pieces that make me feel really good. I finally found some pleated, baggy trousers that siut me, after a long research and I love them!

(Almost) ready for the new season!

The Mood Of The Week(End)

Mixed feelings.

This is today’s right combination of styles that I was looking for. I like to mix the baggy trousers with something femminine. I found the “turtle shirt” at COS and I simply love it!

Feel good in it.

Let’s spend a (worthy) word about – Menorquinas

My friend Susana is Basque and lately she keeps sending me picture of the Menorquinas, some shoes she is really into. The Menorquinas, called aslo Avarcas, are the typical shoes from the spanish Isle of Menorca (or Minorca) originally used by the shepherds and farmers of the island. I was not totally aware of them before, but now that Sus’ enthusiasm about these shoes came to me also I notice that they are actually becoming popular even here in London, where there are no shepherds and, let me say that, there is not the kind of weather that gives you the chance and the need to wear Menorquinas all the time.

Anyway, long story short: because of my friend, my recent short holiday in Barcelona and my extreme need of real Summer, I am into avarcas too. Because they are made by basic things (rubber sole, upper shoe open on the toe, made with cow or pig leather), these shoes are affordable, but at the same time they have good quality and they are comfortable.

So, despite the London’s weather I got my own white Menorquinas from Barcelona and I am really happy of this purchase! And if you have no chance to go to Spain there are a lot of websites from which you can buy them, but also you can go to Topshop, River Island or Urban Outfitters that, as I said, are beginning to sell them too.

Now we just need some proper sun and we can all wear Menorquinas everyday!

More single parts set the whole thing – Segmented shoes

They are an hybrid between a proper shoe and a sandal, for some you can just say that “there is something missing”, but it is always on purpose.

My latest obsession are segmented shoes, a genious and fresh way to re-invent “winter” and classic shoes, such as ankle boots and Oxford shoes. Like some art works in Surrealism and Abstractism where you need to look at the whole thing to see the real image, this kind of shoes are made just by listings and outline, empty spaces wisely connected by straps, transparent plastic, vinyl or pvc…but still you can see their “original” shape, if you look at the whole shoe.

I like the idea, plus you can wear and show nice socks…just to add a trend to another (see The detail that makes the difference – Knee Socks).
