“Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-lee-ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Lee. Ta. She was Lo, plain Lo, in the morning, standing four feet ten in one sock. She was Lola in slacks. She was Dolly at school. She was Dolores on the dotted line. But in my arms she was always Lolita. Did she have a precursor? She did, indeed she did. In point of fact, there might have been no Lolita at all had I not loved, one summer, an initial girl-child. In a princedom by the sea. Oh when? About as many years before Lolita was born as my age was that summer. You can always count on a murderer for a fancy prose style. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, exhibit number one is what the seraphs, the misinformed, simple, noble-winged seraphs, envied. Look at this tangle of thorns.” – Vladimir Nabokov ‘Lolita’
I’m finally back from Riga and Rome. I’ve spent some quality time with my family and friends and can finally feel 100% recharged and inspired. I’ve taken my mum to Rome for her birthday – she’s never seen Italy before and of course, she fell in love with my favourite city. I will definitely make a separate post about our charming city break and will show you the hotel where we stayed – it’s been super adorable.
As you can say from my Instagram, recently I’ve been really digging into 60’s style and when I got these pants from Finery London – I almost screamed. These are perfect summer culottes with an amazing material, it’s like linen mixed with satin, so they have this fab glow when you look at them under the sun rays and you won’t be boiling in them because the material lets the skin breathe. You will probably see me wearing them a lot on the beach as well, with big straw hats and bikini tops inspired by, of course, the 60’s.
