HI FRIENDS!!!!! I can’t believe its been such a long time since i sat down I wrote; finals left me drained and I didn’t really have the time to write while on vacation, but even more than that I just had a hard time finding inspiration. I was hoping I’d come back to belgium with a suitcase full of clothes -which sadly wasn’t the case- but i definitely came back here full of ideas and a breath of fresh (and very cold air) I picked up in Paris and Madrid which is where I was. Speaking of which, keep an eye on my blog and Instagram profile for an interview/collab with the genius behind “How Long Will You Be Staying”, a travel blog dedicated to people’s travels as told through their disposable cameras and I told her everything about my trip. But now I’m here to talk fashion.
“Who are you already?” is a question I ask myself on the daily. I know I’m here and now and that’s what matters, but I can’t help thinking of the fact that who I am “déjà” is a product of who I used to be. I grew up hating absolutely everything about myself; inside and out. I avoided mirrors, and I avoided solitude and silence because I also didn’t like who I was on the inside. That is thankfully, long gone, but the ghosts of my past are always trying to come and bite me in the ass when I least expect it (kinda like that ex or crush who decides to text you the second they feel you’re over them), which is why I need to remind myself constantly that I like myself more now, and that I need to love myself as much as I love others. So if you ask me “Tés qui déjà???” I’d probably say I’m Don Diego; the best version of myself.
I got this t-shirt in Paris, on a store whose name I can’t remember a few steps away from the Arc De Triomphe and was dying to wear it. I’ve also been living in my newest baby; this gorgeous leather jacket I got over the winter break when studying wasn’t going all that well as a little treat to myself and also wore these checked Zara trousers to most of my exams and did well in them so yeah I HAD to upload this outfit to the blog. Shooting with my baby and fellow Latina Abby is always inspiring; she knows me incredibly well and we always shoot incredibly stuff when we’re together. Actually it was after a shoot about a year ago with her -and thanks to her, actually- that I decided to start my blog and I’m so so happy I did.
Anyways, I’m going to shut up and let these pictures speak for themselves.
