So to be honest, I am not a huge fan of compiling a whole outfit with the same brand from head to toe. Ususally it just bores me – but when it fits, it fits. On this day, the focus wasn’t supposed to be on my outfit anyway, it was all about my DIY marble backpack and a simple and casual look to compliment it. But when I got dressed, I saw the headband lying around on my dresser and just couldn’t resist.
If you’re into over-analyzing, you could definitely see the white tee and sporty headband combo as an interpretation of the tennis trend that magazines and online shops have been trying to sell us in the last few months. It doesn’t seem to have seeped through onto the streets yet, at least I haven’t noticed it. And in my favourite stores around here, flimsy white tennis skirts are still hanging around untouched on the sale racks. It’s kind of sad, don’t you think? It’s a very pretty trend and I would love to see more people wearing it. Maybe it just takes another season – there’s still hope, since athleisure is not going anywhere soon and now has its own place in the dictionary.
Don’t you think it is fascinating how the more time we spend inside and locked to our screens, the more obsessed we become with anything related to outdoors and sports? I have never even done any sports that made me sweat so much that I would need a sweatband.
