when was the last time you remember you live on your own opinion. not according what people say or people say not, what people do or do not, what people have or have not? i might had lived that way until i moved to foreign country. what people have achieved become my reference of what I should achieve next or now. until i forgot how it should be to have my own opinions and goals.

postcard from Paris

I never thought I would visit Paris, without any plan. I did buy the ticket less than a week before which makes it very pricey. I was there to meet my father anyway. Paris was great, I surely am going to visit it once more without any hurry.

next stop: Amsterdam, maybe?

style changing?

for years, I've described my style (or style that i loved) as mix between everlasting clothes (like t-shirt, black skirt), vintaged inspired (vintage floral pattern, granny style dress), and a bit of what's in (any style that's in trend that i can pull off). but i would say i adore more to the vintage 20's until 60's. of course there's time when i loved 90's flanel and dr martens, and i still love that. i used to say that people who wear all black or white is not interesting at all, everyone can wear those colors (are they even colors?) and look good without putting much effort (i love to see people who dress up, i mean properly, with effort) and yet they said it's a very high style, or avantgarde (is that even right?). i don't like me being overdressed with layering (i hate layering) but minimalist, for me wasn't interesting at all. i liked wearing skater skirt and shirt and brogues or when it's cold i would wear sweater instead shirt and tights and jacket. a bit accessories an shoulder bag.
but since i'am currently studying on a pretty hardcore major, i feel like what i loved, like the patterns (floral, butterflies, etc) and the colors (earthy colors, pastels) aren't that functional to be worn everyday during school. so i tried to scroll more on simple minimalist style tumblr and blog and instagram. and i finally fall in love. of course not just t shirt and jeans and flip flop, i still wear some patterns. but i wear jeans all the time now, less wearing shorts and tights, i wear legging (which i hated) and oversized t shirts ( i used to think oversize is no no for petite like moi) and sometimes when i think i need something, like boyfriend jeans (i used to own one from flea market), knee length jeans, loose fitting trousers, i remember i owned those stuffs but hated them at that time (they are whether gifted or bought together with sisters). now that they're somewhere, i feel like i need to repurchase.

a bit what i wore lately. from kimono (yes a bit pattern, a bit trendy stuff, with my earthy colored shoes and shopper bag). and ripped jeans.

i agree that people can change their style during college. you won't see me buy floral dress often (last time i got one from UO last end summer) i still love it sooo much cause it is simple pattern. now, besides minimalist style, i'm trying to get one stuffs with awkward or weird pattern and i want to try if i like it or if it suit me.

wishlists this month: & other stories pouches

first time i browsed or visited &otherstories online or stores, I was in love with their minimalistic yet unique shoes. I'm amazed how unique their pieces are yet still very simple. I haven't had a chance to get a pair even though i've been through couple sale season since i knew them. time went by and now i'm adoring their pouches. I feel, pouches are somehow very practical. I used to think "why do someone needs something like that?" but since I always carry around things like vouchers, cards, gums, lipbalm and a very huge bag, I feel like I need extra compartment. I'm planning to go to berlin next week after exam (that goes on until the end of july) to visit the store and get some other stuffs from retails i've been wanting probably since march. so here they are the pouches that i've been eyeing...
