In case you are wondering, yes: as an Erasmus student I do, in fact, study. Well. Sort of: as I've already passed the exam/project I had after Christmas, and I'm about to deliver one of my last papers concerning structural analysis, now I'm regularly visiting the library almost 2-3 times a week to work on my final thesis to be presented once I'm back home. What I love about this thesis is that its topic is of free election, and I already picked my theme: I'm programming a blog-archive of architecture for the city of Valencia, which I'm super excited for you to see once is finished. I'll share the links then.

So, what's my attire for a library day out in Firenze? Well, pretty casual but I still like to play with different accessories and makeup not to lose my regular style: while I might wear a cropped sweatshirt, I still like to pair it with a sweater underneath (as it's been pretty cold around here lately) and my comfiest pair of jeans, because, who's not into jeans?! Then, I like to do my bold red lip as usual, and maybe put on a couple of hoop earrings to keep the outfit a bit nostalgic, as when I used to wear my hoop earrings every single day in my High School years (didn't you as well?).

Showing you on pretty regular basis pieces from Shein has led to you to ask some questions almost every week on social media or via mail about the quality and sizing tips from this online store. Well, about the quality, I have no complaints as all the products I've got from there have had great fabrics, not see-through in any of them and I have even washed them a couple of times now and getting nice results. About the sizing in Shein: my first tip is forget everything you think you knew about your regular clothing size. You'll end up ordering about one to two up to your regular size (Chinese brands tend to manufacture smaller). It's OK: get your sewing kit's tape and note down your measurements. For me, the ones which always end up being crucial to size up are hips and bust measurements.

Besides, it's also great to take into account the material: you can see in their description boxes the type of material the garment is made of. If it's stretchy, cotton, has a bit of spandex or polyester. For stretchier materials, I also like to pick the next size of what my measurements say. And when talking about length and overall fit, I prefer seeing the customer's pictures and commentaries from those who previously bought the garment, if there are any. This way, I can have an approximate idea of how it looks like once worn.

  1. Love how you've layered the cropped hoodie, such a cosy way to wear a cropped style :) Thanks for sharing your tips too! I use measurements on those kinds of sites to figure out the right sizes too, best way to do it! I've found length really important though, have a few too short dresses because I forgot to check length, ha!

    Hope you're having a good week so far. I'm busy, but not as much as last week, so that's nice! :)
