Watermelon Much?

July 26, 2019

This is so simple, I feel like my fingers are chilling while eating watermelon, on the beach, as they’re typing this. The top was the one to set the tone for the day. Wait, the watermelon was!

I ate so much of it I knew I had to put something comfortable on, my confidants throughout the day. They approve of the bond we share, the watermelon and I. Confidants? The top and the (ex, ex) boyfriend jeans.


1. One would say that the top is just loose and that’s about it. Wait, it is loose and the jeans are loose, too. But, you see, the top is actually super feminine – it features pastel blues, cotton lace, very subtle, white vertical stripes and bows on top of the shoulders, enhancing, therefore, a very feminine and sexy area: the shoulders. And you thought a top is just a top. The top is bowing down to you. You should do that right back to it. I know I do.

2. The trousers are vintage Levi’s corduroys and they continue the vertical stripes from the top. Subtly af. The grey and the blue share a bond, too. And you thought it’s only colours.

3. So we’re not talking here about loose only. We might, in fact, be talking about sexy. Details are sexy precisely when details only suggest stuff. Heels don’t just suggest stuff, they are here to actually say hey.

To smile in front of our screens (and live one day), put any kind of questions, answer in writing (or imagination) and marvel at fashion which is, in fact, style.
