Happiness is a way of travel, not a destination

Cropped blouse: Tobi.com
Shorts: Chicabooti
Boots: Therapy
Backpack: Forever New

I'm so in love with all the pieces from my Tobi.com haul! If you follow me on Instagram (here) you'll have seen a little preview of it with two cropped tops and a striped crop top. I'm going to do a blog post soon with pictures from all my recent hauls (Tobi, Sabo Skirt, and ASOS) and talk about the quality and shopping experience, as usual! I think Tobi is pretty new to the online store scene so it might benefit some of you guys if I did a little review on it.

Anyway this cropped top with the crochet detail was one of the things I got from Tobi. I just had to get it in both black and cream, as I absolutely loved the design! I'm always at my most comfy in long, baggy sleeves as I love the way they fall gracefully by your torso and are extremely flattering for any frame! It was also my first time exposing so much skin however, but I'm a little more confident after a week of cutting out a lot of processed foods :) Although this weekend I've been obliged to be a bit naughty, as it did happen to capture both Valentine's Day and my birthday!

Hope everyone has had an amazing week and weekend so far! The outfit with the backpack somehow makes me look like I'm going somewhere exciting (when I was only going shopping...again). Thought this quote (in the post title) might be appropriate with the outfit and hopefully provide a little dose of inspiration! Just a small reminder that you don't need to wait around for happiness, you can be happy now or anytime you want, as long as you have chosen to :)

PS: oh and to the people who asked- the new lens my bf is using is a 135mm f/2L!

  4. Wow @__@
    This look is so luxe bohemian, I LOVE IT! Why are you such a porcelain doll for? I love how you play with the colour of your shorts and lippie, boots to top and the touch of the cream bag is a lovely subtle touch. I'm really digging the bell sleeves on your top, you manage to make every silhouette work so well for you Izzy!! I watched several documentaries lately on processed foods, it makes you just feel sick about thinking to chomp it down huh, but I'm glad you've been able to steer clear away from that, your hard work and resilience has paid off wonderfully :-) Happy belated Valentines and birthday Izzy, I hope you were spoilt rotten! It's only customary that all dietary lifestyles are thrown out the window on these occassions ;) The backpack kinda makes you look like a travelling hippie musican, you know, like those cute duffle bags? n_n

  5. Awww the top is so cute! Love the crochet detailing. Just browsed Tobi.com and there are so many great items that I'm trying to resist myself from buying. Looking forward to reading your haul posts!

  8. The first thought I had was gypsy chic, and now I see I'm not the only commenter with this association. :) The colors are beautiful, and you certainly have the body to show it off, it motivates me to start working out and not overdoing it with sweets so that I'm not a big pile of jelly by the time it's warm here. :)

  13. Your top is so feminine and you definitely styled it well. I like how you matched your lipstick with your shorts =)
    P.S. Your bf take really good pictures of you. 2 thumbs up for him! =D

    ReplyDelete
  14. The detailing of the crochet is unique and it really accentuates your tummy or rather, the lack of. I'm simply envious of your flat tummy. You got that just from cutting down on process food? No fair... Hehehe...

  15. Wow , loving the look, but if I tried to wear this in Wales I may get hypothermia! hahah <3

  19. The title of this post really struck me! It is really important to just be happy at every stage of your life rather than telling yourself that you will be happy later on.

    Love that bohemian look on you. I wish I would have your pretty long legs. What do you do to keep them like that? Or just good genes? :-)

I think you could pull off anything, but we are always our own worst critics. I think it looks fantastic on you and I love the rich color of those shorts. And happy belated birthday!! :) <3
