I’m dreaming of a white summer..

Now that the temperature is rising (or has risen!), you’re going to need something other than sunscreen to keep your cool. What’s that, you ask? Well, it is the best time to pull out your whites! If you don’t already have a wardrobe full of it, don’t fret. You’ll find it EVERYWHERE you go! And that’s perfect, because you’re really going to need it at this point.

If you didn’t know this already, there are staple statements when it comes to whites. Things like a white shirt and white jeans are an absolute necessity! And the best part about owning these, is that they never really go out of style. My advice would be to go for the clothing, but it doesn’t hurt to have a pair of white sandals or a white clutch lying around. After all, everything white will be your go-to this summer!

Why white? Why ever not? After all, this colour of purity and elegance is also the one that’ll keep you coolest (literally!), what with the fact that white reflects the light of the sun and all. And then there’s this theory that almost anyone can carry the white look to perfection. Modern or classic, it’s designed for everyone, isn’t it?

White, white everywhere.. Not a single one to spare!

The prayer of the tribes

InCelinasHeels - The prayer of the tribes (Featured)

As you discover what strength you can draw from your community in this world from which it stands apart, look outward as well as inward. Build bridges instead of walls. ― Sonia Sotomayor

Have you ever wondered how many people exist in the world? No two people are ever really the same. Even twins (ask me, I’m living proof of this!) form their own notions and theories about life. It’s so easy to forget how many different people co-exist with you sometimes. You lose sight of the real, the obvious. And that’s not always a good thing. What’s important is to respect every other person, no matter where they’re from or what they do.

Steal the scenery

Landscapes always paint a pretty picture, don’t they? The birds flying high in the sky. The tall green trees. Blooming flowers in the spring. Ice-capped mountains in the winter. When you find a way back from such beauty, you come out feeling something strange – it delights the soul. And when I chanced upon these trousers from Zara, all these feelings came rushing back to me.

Hopelessly devoted to you!

InCelinasHeels - Hopelessly devoted to you! (Featured)

I’m scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I’m with you. – Dirty Dancing

I’m one of those hopeless romantics who isn’t afraid of falling in love. It’s the most wonderful feeling in the world. Those sudden smiles when you think of him, so much that you might look plain silly smiling away in a crowd for no apparent reason. Your cheeks colouring up at the very mention of him. That coyness creeps up on you, and you’ve never felt more like a woman. Makes you fearless, doesn’t it? As the shivers continuously run up and down your spine, suddenly you’re more alive than you’ve ever been.

Although summer is about the colours, some of us prefer to keep it to the minimum. For those of you who aren’t colour-loving, you can try the simple two-tone prints. They aren’t hard to find either. I’ve been seeing quite a few designs around myself!

The essence of tribal prints will always be the colour though. Whether it’s accessories you choose to play around with or your clothes, these prints add a little skip to each step you take. If you’ve tried the print out, you’ll know they are definite attention grabbers (tried and tested by yours truly). If not, try them on and see for yourself!

I’ve got my tribal on.. The question is, have you?
