While She Waits For A Ride

I haven’t been very active lately, neither on the blog or on my social media. But I spent the last week between bed and sofa completely sick. Thanks dear A/C! However if my blog hasn’t been updated, my knowledge on Netflix has. I’m now an expert of all TV series!
Anyway, flu or not flu, today I feel good enough to share one of my favorite looks of last month.
I’m such a big fan of high waist pants, but they are not the easiest style to wear. It’s hard to find flattering pants that enhance your curves instead of make them look bigger.
However, a while ago, on what I call my lucky day, I found these trousers at H&M which have the most perfect fit. I never owned a pair of trousers more flattering than this one. In fact I bought them in two colors: black and cream (worn here).
I paid these H&M trousers with a top that I bought in Italy from & Other Stories, a while ago, but I never had the chance to wear. I felt in love with this top at the first sight for the 50’s vibes, for those little ruffles placed on the shoulders and for the perfect sleeves’ length, not too long but neither too short.
To complete this sort of “modern Pin-up” look I added a pair of stilettos from Sophia Webster heels and cat-eye sunglasses.
By this time I think you already know that I rarely wear black, so to make this look closer to my style I had a pop of color with this yellow Dolce & Gabbana raffia bag spotted on The Luxury Closet. It’s the perfect bag for a summer spent in the city. It’s a bit different from all the straw bags that you see everywhere and it doesn’t scream “beach” too much. At the same time, it’s big enough to carry around all the things you need, included your laptop in case of meetings.
