If you are not familiar with the “Inspired by…” series, click here for an explanation.
But short story even shorter, each month I choose a seasonal ad and try to recreate the models look with colors I already own.
Dressing up and awkward posing included!
I guess we all have a picture of ourselves in our head that not necessarily matches reality. For me, that is the Boho chick I want to be every summer. The one that wears maxi skirts, turquoise bracelets and tousled waves with random braids.
For many summers I was determined to make it happen, to match my outer appearance to my inner portrait, and every summer I was left disappointed. I just can´t be effortlessly chic, carelessly beautiful and look like I woke up this way. It is just not who I am. I either look like I really woke up this way, which is a look no one wants to see, or like I tried very hard.
Thankfully Lancome came to my rescue and the Lancome Summer Swing 2017 Collection gave me the perfect template to recreate a Boho look that I am actually very happy with.
