Fifty shades of no thanks to grey, but yes please to dirty white.

At one point, I promised myself to NEVER EVER use the infamous "Fifty Shades of Something Something" phrase in a sentence, but in this particular choice of garments I sampled the shades of creamy white, and counted no more, no less, but fifty (five). Also, the fact that the new "Crazy in Love" version is so, so good doesn't hurt either. Way to go Beyoncé, and please follow at least one person on Instagram, let's say Jay-Z.

Back to the clothes here. I've been going looser and looser every day, (1) because it's hot and this makes walking around much breezier, (2) because I am in such a style phase, and (3) because it's SO comfortable that you feel like the clothes are cuddling with you. This Mango shirt is something I wear with everything, and this perfectly simple jersey Calliope skirt is a precious, precious find that I shall treat in that very same manner. Putting them together wasn't just about enough, so I added the scarf, which conveniently hosts every shade (and more) of this outfit in its pattern. And the Ray-Bans, well, that's a given.

Wearing an everything but a rock climbing combination of garments, consisting of the familiar upside down unbuttoned boyfriend shirt, a faux leather skirt, and a pair snake print flats to match the surrounding snake-friendly habitat.

Hey there, I'm back, and this time with a pair of rainbow-generating mermaid disco pants by Mila Kadriu, conveniently colored in the shades of Ariel's hair.

Confession time: The Little Mermaid is pretty much my most cherished Disney film of all times. How adorable is the idea to use a fork as a comb for your flaming red hair, and how stylish is the ability to pull off a seashell lavender bikini top with a green emerald bodycon bottom...

But, anyway, back to the pants... I never, in a million years, thought I'd be able to pull off burgundy-reddish nebula sequin pants, but from the moment I saw them, I kept imaging them on me with a soft, vintage Coca-Cola T-shirt, and I even asked people around where to find one. Failing to do so lead me to another, not-so-obvious, but equally cool, and a lot more Universal choice - a NASA tee! And now I am fully convinced that a clothing garment inspired by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration should be the single, most important complement to a fantastic pair of Cosmic pants such as this one.
