Backpacks remind me of being a kid; tottering around with the latest trendy backpack in tow and feeling like the coolest kid in the universe. In my mind, I was the coolest kid with the coolest backpack since Dora the Explorer. This acid wash neon denim backpack really puts me in a nostalgic mood and takes me back to the days where I was the epitome of "cool". My most recent purchase has been this grey, mesh-like top from River Island. It's perfect for effortless layering and pulling off a grungy vibe - something which I have been much more interested in recently. My love for maxi skirts hasn't gone unnoticed on my blog; I'm sure every one of my readers know that I was born to wear maxi skirts! A silk maxi skirt is perfect for a humid day, and I can't resist mentioning the breezy flutter of the silk when a subtle gust of wind passes by! (I know, my opinions are so unconventional!)
Nowadays everyone is so accustomed to seeing denim in the form of jeans or a chambray shirt that I think we have forgotten that denim can appear in many other different shapes and sizes too! I like to play around with my denim, so I opted for a miscellaneous salad mix of a denim backpack and a denim cap in an acid wash style. And of course, my affinity for the wonderful bindi continues! I have worn bindis ever since I was a kid, (I was definitely a cool kid) and I like to wear bindis as a sort of tribute to my magnificent culture and rich heritage.
I hope you're all having a memorable summer, wherever you are!
