FASHION FILES: AN ODE TO DENIM

Denim has never been out of style but lately I have been seeing more denim than ever. Especially denim on denim (as in the image above) is the trend right now. I love denim as it is very versatile, you can combine it with some heels for a more classy look or with flats or sneakers for a relaxed outfit. In this post you can find some of my favorite denim pieces and items that go perfectly with denim.

SAD, SAD TIMES

Last Friday, one year after my mother died, my father passed away. I am in complete shock, losing both my parents in one year is just too much to comprehend. I will continue blogging as I much need the distraction, but it might not be as frequent as normal. Take care and hug your loved ones.
