70's mood? Yes, please!

Are flared trousers really back in style? I still remember how happy my bell bottom jeans made me feel throughout my life. This bohemian trend takes me back to my youth. To my iPod and backpack. I used to style them with everything since I don't remember having any other type of trousers apart from these high waisted retro ones. And the most incredible?! I felt totally perfect about it. I used to love them. I used to love them until I started to hate them. And love them again.

We all know fashion is cyclical. The bell bottom just lost it somehow to the skinny bottom. Apparently until now. Flared trousers are everywhere. Black, leather, white, denim, burgundy, grey. No matter what the colour or texture is, the 70's mood is screaming. And what's wrong with that? They are perfect to enhance the silhouette and they tend to lengthen the legs. So, girls, what are you waiting for?

I couldn't help myself so I went for these creamy ones. Definitely cream doesn't make me feel as comfortable as black does, but the cut is just perfect and the price?! Well, the price was unbelievable, since I found them in a second hand vintage store. So, it was a win-win!
How to style them? I would say you need to find the balance. Proportion is everything. So I've paired them with a smart white shirt to give me some shape and to highlight my waist.
The Zara coat is one of the favourite pieces of clothing inside my wardrobe. It's so basic and simple but so elegant and classy at the same time. Living in England, no wardrobe is complete without a warm coat and this one definitely does the job!
In the end, it is the coat that makes the whole outfit work.

The hello world in vintage kind of trousers

Hi there.
Is it me you're looking for?! Here I am. I've done it!
How do I feel about it? Well, the first blog post is never easy. Believe it or not, my hands are shaking and I feel my heart beating faster.

I've always wanted to do it, but I've never been brave enough. Think I was scared of being just one more fashion blogger amongst millions. But you know what? This isn't just a fashion blog. This is who I am. I've heard enough times - why don't you show the world who you are?
Yeah, why not? I think it's time to do it. I will be blogging about my style as well as my interests, my steps exploring new corners and edges.

I'm now a 26-year-old London girl from Portugal. Here for the past two years and a half, I'm living and loving every second of these streets. Rainy and cloudy? London is so much more than that. Crazy and busy? No. This city is alive, it never sleeps. Well, that makes us two. I like the noise of the rain on my window. The crowd out there that never let me feel lonely. The old pub smell that warms me up after a long day working. The cherry blossom trees that make me feel like living in Neverland as a Lost Girl. I love the clean and the direct lines. The simple. The complex. The classic and the contemporary. I adore the feeling of being a permanent contract tourist, since everything seems different to me every single second.

Imagine my surprise when I walked into a vintage store and found these lonely white clean trousers for the ridiculous amount of £15?! This is London!

When it comes to dressing, comfort is my thing. I have to feel like walking in my pyjamas all day long. And the first thing my boyfriend said when he saw me wearing these was exactly - You really going out with your pyjamas on?! And that melted my heart.
The All Saints pink pastel coat is a must have. Honestly I was afraid of buying it since I'm more like a monochrome kind of girl. My wardrobe is simply black and white, with some touch of navy and grey layers. But this season has changed me. The elegant and classic cut goes perfectly well with my everyday trainers. I can style this coat up with everything and I never get tired.
This Zara shirt is my last investment. It makes the outfit look simple but delightful.

And the time is up. Time to press that scary small button in the top right-hand corner - publish. Just do it. Do I have a space out there?! Can't wait to hear from you.
