Next to the Tate Modern there is a building of flats. And I’ve always had a dream where I live there and get up early in the morning to have breakfast at the cafe on the top floor to take a little trip around the galleries after.
Spending a day alone at the museum used to be one of my favourite activities in my early 20s and still is today. That and going to the movies on my own. Hahaha! Only child complex me? But that feeling of ‘loneliness in the mass’ is sometimes so comforting…
The fact is that this activity is always going to be tiring and flat shoes become indispensable. These pair have already become my favourite this season without a doubt (you can see them here and here). And with these silk style bottoms we’re going to be so comfortable we can devote hours to the pleasure of wandering. Do you see how these green trousers are quite cooler in colour than what a green forest would be? Being a soft season I can afford to wear some cool tones that would be denied to a warmer season such as the warm autumn. But don’t forget the rule: keep it always away from the face.
The main piece in this comfortable but quite ‘hipster’ (if we need to label it) outfit is certainly the bag. The berry colours have been obsessing me since last winter not to mention how beautiful they look with golden details that give them more warmth. Also in a large and structured bag like this you can fit your notebook, camera and even ipad. All your field kit. Structured handbags dress you so much better since they always keep that sober and put together look.
As you can see blush tones make an appearance again. It’s a perfect transitional colour and, if you’re a soft season, either cold or warm, you’ll be right at home! Combine them with jewellery and accessories in your power colours and voila! Magic.
Of course the best part of the visit comes at the end… when you lose yourself for an hour or so in the shops of the museum or gallery, flipping through art books and jumping to souvenirs. Not surprisingly a few years back I found one of my favourite books here, 1000 Artist Journal Pages, which inspired me to do scrapbooking art that I ended up falling in love with.
Out of this particular trip I took a Frida Khalo book. One of my favourite artists and women in the world.
Thanks to María R. Fernández for following me today around this dream and capturing it with her whimsical photography. By the way, if you want to see more pictures from last week’s Ladylike outfit María published many more in her blog here. On top of that, if you liked the look of those pictures, you can download the Lightroom presents she created especially for that session and use them in your own pictures! Don’t miss it for the world!
