Backpacker

backpacks and hats always make me feel like a traveller. over my christmas break, I received a big packet from Velvet and Veechay (I just realize that they both begin with a "V").. The hat may look theatrical at first, but it's actually more wearable than you think. Simply flip the flower the side to the back and it functions as an everyday hat.
pairing light fabrics such as this chiffon outerwear with leather piece is also becoming a "hobby". For someone who wears alot of neutrals, playing around with textures is a good way to keep things interesting. Plus, I love chiffon because it's airy and it does not cause extra sweat :D

I've been searching for the perfect backpack, but shops don't seem to carry them here. My main use of them is to actually carry my camera gear. I don't like having my messenger camera bag bothering me when I'm hunting photos. This backpack is from a vintage shop called Bonvieux (owned by the lovely blogger, Clara). I immediately ordered it when I saw it. Not only does it fulfill my camera needs, it's also stylish enough to tote around mall without screaming "DSLR".

Bonnie said...

I like the hat!!!
I think that long, gorgeous hair looks the best under a hat. When I had short hair (ugh), I always felt like I looked like a man underneath a wide brim. Then, I remembered that I have boobs (albeit, small ones), and nobody would l think I was a man. But it still made me feel like one.

Lexy @ Quirky Explosion said...

AH YOU LOOK SO AMAZING. I love all the layering. And gurl, you look like a FIERCE traveler. Not like one of those weirdos in fanny packs and sunvisers... Not that I have anything against fanny packs and sunvisers... (Okay, maybe a little.)

I love all your photos. They're soooo fierce.

Hey! How funny I invested in a backpack the other day! Mine is not as cool as yours at all! Mines a nice floral print and I only bought it because in Italy everyone has one and when travelling a little handbag really isn't appropriate! You look great!
