Summer nights

Summer atmosphere. Usually warm and welcoming if it's about to stay awake until late. There's only about a week left for me around here, then I'll return home in Valencia. That means say bye bye to comfy and easy outfits based on dresses, bye bye to the beach breeze and start looking for jeans and cozy sweaters on my closet. Not depressed at all, because it means the start of a new season, a new stage.

I must confess I'll miss the improvised nights going out on a dinner or to have an ice-cream. Those kind of moments which inspire you through the coming year to keep going, to keep dreaming until the next holidays arrive. Summer is an amazing season to turn your mind off and get inspired, think about new projects and start from scratch building new, crazy ideas isn't it? Plus, September is the baseline of #FashionWeek and I can't wait to see the new collections.

For the time being, here's a new outfit. Talking about summer nights, I wore this just to go with family and some relatives on a dinner. It felt like ages since the last time I wore any florals!

Beachy ponytail

One of my favorite things about summer holidays is that you don't need any excuse to wear a fresh, effortless look. As I've been spending the last two weeks since I came back from Holland chilling on the beach and almost all the day on the swimming pool (charging batteries before the start of a new course, please!), effortless style and looks were needed. Believe me when I say I can spend all the day with my hair wet and running around the pool as a little child. No worries, my music playlist always on and what's best: no hair irons. My hair is enough damaged with all the daily chlorine and sun! (Although I'm doing my best trying some hair repair products. Hopefully they'll work)

So when going out because whatever reason, I have to literally fight against my hair and try my best to style it on the most simple, damage-free way. Ponytails on all their shapes and buns are nice ideas for long, thick hair as mine. Super easy to style, really fast to do and chic as well.

As it's been really cloudy lately I've spent time planning things around for the new coming course, and shooting some outfits when weather let us. Clothing is really tricky to pick when it's warm but rainy... 

What about you? What's your beachy style?

Delphos dress, by Mariano Fortuny

vintage fortuny delphos dress couture valencia fashion blogger, pleated dress long maxi summer somethingfashion vestido, el tiempo entre costuras time in between TV series ancient greece

The first time I heard about the "Delphos" dress by Spanish couturier Mariano Fortuny, was on the TV series "El tiempo entre costuras". Seriously, you can't imagine how many interesting and amazing things about antique fashion this series taught me. Stay, I won't spoiler hehe. The dress itself is so simple that I think I got captivated by that feature of it: it was based on the typical tunic from the Ancient Grece, and consisted on a piece of long pleated fabric which came on a rounded box. As Coco Chanel did a little bit after him, with his Delphos dress he freed women's anatomy from corsets and heavy skirts, achieving an elegant and comfortable shape for the one who wore it.

So, as you can imagine, this is not a real Delphos dress. They're not done nowadays, because Mr. Fortuny carried to death the secret of his pleated fabric and also the colors he used. But this vintage by Rare London looks pretty similar to the original, and it made my day when I found it. It's the perfect maxi dress for summer, and you can either wear it with flats or heels, straight hair or into an updo because it's very versatile! We took this pictures an evening off to a dinner on town near the beach, and I wore it on the formal way.

How would you wear a Delphos? Had you ever heard about this piece?
