Acid Wash



Top // River Island  
Skirt // Zara 
Backpack, Shoes & Cap // Topshop 
Bracelets // Dubai markets
Ring // vintage 
Bindi // Ebay

Backpacks remind me of being a kid; tottering around with the latest trendy backpack in tow and feeling like the coolest kid in the universe. In my mind, I was the coolest kid with the coolest backpack since Dora the Explorer. This acid wash neon denim backpack really puts me in a nostalgic mood and takes me back to the days where I was the epitome of "cool". My most recent purchase has been this grey, mesh-like top from River Island. It's perfect for effortless layering and pulling off a grungy vibe - something which I have been much more interested in recently. My love for maxi skirts hasn't gone unnoticed on my blog; I'm sure every one of my readers know that I was born to wear maxi skirts! A silk maxi skirt is perfect for a humid day, and I can't resist mentioning the breezy flutter of the silk when a subtle gust of wind passes by! (I know, my opinions are so unconventional!)

Nowadays everyone is so accustomed to seeing denim in the form of jeans or a chambray shirt that I think we have forgotten that denim can appear in many other different shapes and sizes too! I like to play around with my denim, so I opted for a miscellaneous salad mix of a denim backpack and a denim cap in an acid wash style. And of course, my affinity for the wonderful bindi continues! I have worn bindis ever since I was a kid, (I was definitely a cool kid) and I like to wear bindis as a sort of tribute to my magnificent culture and rich heritage.

I hope you're all having a memorable summer, wherever you are!

Love from,

Miss Iffa

  22. I, too, connect backpacks with childhood! And yours is so cool - you're still one of the cool kids, definitely. ;)
    I remember I had a blue one with that "Miffy" (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_WjxBSW9JWRY/SRDaJu9n9EI/AAAAAAAABRA/s2Yn8KV7Uss/s400/03.jpg) figure on it, and after being pulled around a lot throughout my childhood, I loved my backpack and took care to almost always carry my favourite things around with me in that bag. (A lot of cool things, naturally. ;))

    Your street style is amazing. Yeah, you're the Maxi-Skirt-Girl for me now! ;) But personally, the best thing is your arm candy... I can't help myself but look at it over and over again.

  23. Love the denim bag, so vintage looking! You can buy studs on ebay which i think would look pretty nice on it too if you wanted to accesorize! Nice maxi too. Following back! x
