♥ OOTD: Crochet & Trainers ♥


I first wanted to call this post 'A Casual Outfit', because trainers automatically make an outfit casual to me. As I don't like streetwear, sports clothes, hoodies and everything like that, my vision of a casual outfit goes down to comfy shoes and a top that I feel comfortable in. I recently got this pair of Stan Smith trainers by Adidas with the hot pink detailing, mainly because I wanted good trainers for my holiday in England, as I knew we'd walk a lot. I initially wanted to get a Superstar pair, but they made my feet look so huge - this often happens with shoes, I always find they make my feet appear bigger (I'm a size 5-6). The advantage of these trainers is that they go with everything I wear: jeggings, shorts, dresses or skirts. 
The day I took these photos, the weather was quite warm and felt amazingly like spring. On days like that I love wearing light colours, so I went for my Mango crochet crop top, that I got in the winter sales. I remember a lot of you who read that post liked this top, so I hope you'll enjoy the outfit I put together with it!


It is around this time of year that I bring back the hair accessories too. This pale pink bow headband is one of my favourites. I know it can look somewhat childlike to wear a pink ribbon on your head, but why the hell not? Paired with the light shorts and the light top, it is an outfit very fitted for the season! 
By the way, this is my first time wearing my new glasses on the blog! I love the change they make from my old ones. No more black and rectangular frame, I went for a bigger shape and a brown colour, which is exactly what I had in mind before finding these! They are Tom Ford Eyewear, I don't know how glasses work and if collections are sold worldwide though, but there's the link to the Tom Ford website, in case you wanted to check them out. I was quite happy to know my eyesight hasn't got worse. I always worry that being so often in front of screens will worsen it. The struggle of being addicted to technology, I guess!

Do you wear like trainers or is it just not your style? What is your definition of a casual outfit?

  3. I always dread visits to the optometrist, too, just because I dislike knowing when my eyesight has worsen, so I feel you, Julia! Haha, as for the look, I think you look adorable. Trainers are my way of making any outfit casual, too, and tights and crochet rank high on my wardrobe staples!
