Style diaries: Hometown getaway

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

This week I spent some very beautiful and cozy days in my hometown Vilnius. It was very nice to take a pause from studying and work to realize some projects I’ve been thinking about for some time already. One of them was to start writing about lifestyle topics (because sometimes I do need a break from serious interviews and fashion analysis and I have so many ideas for this, so wait for it!) Another one was to start Style diaries, which is exactly what I’m doing right now – I’ve actually never done this before but I’m so eager to experiment with all the possibilities this website gives me. Up until now I’ve been avoiding absolutely anything that involves talking about my own preferences (even when choosing topics for articles, I usually tend to explain something I’m not really into; It’s much more exciting than writing about something you really like) so my goal right now is to bring some more personal elements to my blog by showcasing my own take on fashion and trends.

The very first photos for my new venture were taken on Lithuania’s Independence day (background full of flags proves it) – I couldn’t be more prouder of my country which is celebrating its 99th birthday despite its troubling, difficult, even deeply traumatizing history.  Every time I come back from Paris, I always spend some time walking down my favorite streets in the old town, rich of details telling stories from distant times. Even though the weather here doesn’t spell spring yet, I opted for a quite minimalistic outfit in blue tones, finally incorporating my previously discussed turtleneck (yes, I wear them again! – and my mom is very surprised), quite summer-ish jeans and one of the most comfortable sneakers that I’ve ever owned. To accessorize the look, a grey scarf with little shiny details and a backpack of the same color seemed to be the best options.
