June is coming to an end and summer collections are in full bloom. Summery designs, airy clothes, cute dresses, bikinis, and sandals I bet there will be nothing missing from your suitcase. As many times as I've tried to go back on the way I used to pack in the past, I can't help but laugh at the way I was overthinking the whole process; it seems way ridiculous the way I thought that this 8th pair of shoes would be useful in my 7-day holiday. Now, a little older but much wiser, I can brag about being mature enough to carry exactly the amount of garments I will need, plus one or two extra bits and bobs just in case. The unmistakable process of trial and error one would say, and I couldn't agree more. So, don't overthink; pack as many bikinis as you wish (splurge on that, you'll spend your whole day in these), some white basics that will brighten up your much coveted tan, and two or three statement pieces to rock the nights. Have fun and take a lot of pictures, featuring the most important accessory you own; that smile. Kiss, kiss.

As if deciding what to wear in your everyday life was not challenging enough, girls are required to decide what to wear at the gym too. Personally I avoid short stuff and all these amazing printed leggings around the market (remember Beyonce's Bootylicious? yes, that.) but I always love watching lean girls sporting them and practicing their yoga poses so effortlessly gorgeous. For me, dark neutral colors always worked best, just like layering does, in order to avoid all these sweaty stains I consider inappropriate. No matter what anyone tells you though, always go for the apparel that works best for you, cause what you do for your body is already enough to feel well about that body. Either it's pink, black or blended you are the one to bring those leggings in life. Make it worth the stare.

Pharrell Williams + Adidas Originals = Superstar Supercolor Pack
Just a little while aftrer the re-rise of the Stan, Adidas Originals found its way to remain on the spotlight by collaborating with the multi-talented Mr.Happy, who managed to relaunch the classic line of Superstar in the happiest version possible. Available globally since March 27, the Pharrell Superstar line will be in stores in more than 50 colours, celebrating personal expression and individuality more successfully than ever. As Pharrell himself noted "Supercolor is a celebration of equality through diversity. With 50 colours of the Superstar, everybody will be able to select his or her colour. It is more diverse than any pack ever before and therefore it is more individual than any pack ever before. With every shoe treated exactly the same, all colours are equal. No matter what colour you choose, you can be part of Supercolor. Choose your colour." Will you be able to pick just one?

Current favorite: David Jones sturdy backpack
I am one of those girls who literally carry their lives in their bags; that is to say, my precious handbags usually carry my books, my agenda, my wallet, my make-up bag, one or two Tupperwares with packed meals and anything that may come in handy throughout the day. Not to mention all these spare stuff like lip balms, cereal bars, pineapples (ok, I may have to stop to the greengrocer's too, where am I supposed to carry these things?) that will probably give me the strongest biceps ever. And although I literally adore that stylish burden, it would be true to say that sometimes it sucks the life out of me, leaving me hope that one day I'll have my hands free to carry my grocery bags or browse through the endless racks of clothing while shopping. Then like a deus ex machina, here comes the much loved backpack, which is here to leave us girls light as a feather. You may not be able to stack everything in it, but it will surely give you that much coveted carefree feeling that you may pursue from time to time. I have gone for that cute, black David Jones beauty that will look nice in any kind of weather and does not confine my free fashion spirit to a limited spectrum of choices, because of its versatility and simplicity. The choices are endless, choose yours wisely!

At the beginning of the season I swore to myself that no matter how I liked the Stan, I wouldn't get my hands on a pair, first, because they look like they are the new Air Force, a shoe that everybody wore through the past two years, and second, I decided not to be yet another victim of the Adidas' -successful, I must admit- marketing policy. And there it was, that black/leopard combo that made my heart skip a beat and got into my online shopping cart without even noticing. I am a proud Stan Smith owner and I am not afraid to tell. The iconic model, dated back to the 1970s, endorsed by the famous American tennis player, Stan Smith, looks so unbearably stylish in its new animal print look, and it is sure to make even the toughest fashionable hearts melt. At least, I didn't get the white/green version I was intending to.
