Bits & pieces from my Instagram account. Sadly, I’m no longer keeping up with the #100happydays challenge, as mentioned on the previous instagram update. I try to find something positive everyday, but capturing it and posting on the web is another story. There’s only so much cat pictures one can post daily right?!

Actually, I wasn’t the subject of the shooting, but my friend Ana decided to take some pictures of me, so I could use them on my blog. They were forgotten ever since.

Running in style

How to wear running shoes without looking are halfway to the gym? Chinese model Ming Xi is the most stylish answer!ming xi, street style, running shoes, sports trend, nike air pegasus, blogger, how to style running shoes

Recently, while browsing through a fashion magazine, I came across with this young lady rocking the same Nike Air Pegasus I’m wearing on my last outfit post! Who is she? Ming Xi, a chinese “it” model who knows her way into the sportive-chic trend. I love wearing comfortable shoes, and by this I mean I pretty much wear flats and sneakers all day, but the running kind is not so easy to style – at least for me. Having this exact pair (it’s actually from the men’s department, but you can’t really go wrong with casual cool black & white so…), and looking at it on this super cool girl gave me some new style ideas.

Style tips on how to style your running shoes:
bare legs for extra coolness;
black tights and an oversized jacket can’t go wrong;
skinny jeans for the everyday casual;
– anything Chanel, when available in your closet!
