There's something about a button down shirt that I can't resist. It's undeniably transcendent and while attaining that immaculate fit can be most arduous at times, when you do encounter it, boy is it magical. When it comes to the maintenance of such sartorial pieces, the latest string of cotton acquisitions has made me utterly complacent and seemingly forgetful of such modern contraptions like the iron. Yes this beloved shirt could have done with a pressing but there is no point in crying over spilt milk. Truthfully I do this far to often as my friends can attest, being somewhat disheveled has become "my thing", or always has been. I feel like I've gotten this down to a fine art really, even in terms of hairstyling. I've never been one to fancy myself over slick and deathly straight locks. I adopt a more voluminous style. Something akin to that of Caroline de Maigret, who's perfectly chaotic tresses are something I have longed to achieve. Even those bangs, so perfectly unkempt have me reaching for my scissors every damn time.

If you follow me on Snapchat (see the sidebar for my Snap Code and details) you'd recall that I recently had my hairs made over. So why didn't I request bangs? Well I still cherish the freedom of having a side part that can easily be swept away from my face. I've been torn for many months now. If only there was a way to possess both without being wildly offensive. Sigh. I've also showcased a string of recent procurements like these stylish Ralph Sunglasses. I am loving the oversized take on the classic cat eye shape. It's beautifully rounded and complimentary. As are the minimalistic frames.

And of course, a while back the kind folks from Valentina sent me the gorgeous "Icecap" bracelet. Featuring an assortment of delicately adorned charms, like the shimmery effects on the crisp white and the exquisite flecks of gold that can be found haphazardly on the mauve. Aside from captivating my heart with its charms (no pun intended) the ethics behind this company and their brand mission is admirable. They believe fashion shouldn't cost the Earth nor should it compromise it any shape or form. They are committed to limiting waste while ensuring packaging is recyclable. Best of all they also give proceeds from each sale to a charity of their choice. Currently they're offering a generous 30% off their entire range, valid for the next 30 days with the code: Sonia30.

  2. Beautiful bracelet, and sounds like a great company :)

    I like the khaki and black together too - nice classic combination :) I have next to no time for ironing now so if it needs ironing I'm not likely to wear it!

  4. I don't like to tell people what to do but I would highly advise against them. I get some every few years but each time I highly regret it. The growing out part (that I currently find myself in) is just the worst.

  24. Such a chic and effortless neutral look! I'm torn when it comes to bangs as well. I love how they look but I always end up with long side bangs because I want to be abel to brush them off my face whenever. Also the last time I had blunt bangs I looked like I was still in school ;p Glad to hear you're enjoying MGIAG. The humor in it is great and I loved the grandfather. Let me know what you think of the others I suggested and you can always hit me up for more choices when you're done.

  36. What you call dishevelled is what I call grundgy and your style is effortless and very cool, Sonia. You're not the only one who doesn't iron the shirt, me too! Haha! Which is why I only buy materials that don't require ironing. :-P

    1. Hehehehe non-ironers unite! Honestly who has the time or patience for such nonsense these days? I don't usually buy these type of "high maintenance" pieces either but somehow this slipped through the cracks a few years ago. Also probably why I forgot all about it for such a long time xx

  44. Very nice and easy look! I was a bit shocked to see it at first, but then I remembered it's winter over there. The Ralph sunnies are lovely and they look great on you, but unfortunately I look awkward with cat eye shaped sunglasses.

  45. You go with your unkempt look girl! I hate how after I iron something it immediately gets wrinkled the moment I sit down in it, so maybe I need to adopt the unkempt look too haha! Also, your watch, swooooning! Love that rose gold color

    1. Hehehe, yes that is my biggest hate. Within moments of ironing, bam, there's a wrinkle, so it's kinda pointless really ;o)
