Sunday Coffee Stains

I’m always inspired to write when I come across cute little quotes like this one that resonate with me and I would really love to share it here!

I am going to make everything around me beautiful – that will be my life. – Elsie de Wolfe

It’s short but exactly what I needed. Not only that but I heard it only takes an eye to find beauty in the ordinary rather than just the extraordinary and to me that it something quite magical. As something so simple as a cup of coffee, filled of brown hues and palatable aromas can be alluringly beautiful if you let it be…

Yes, there are coffee stain on my lovely and WHITE blouse dress from DISSH. I was going to photoshop it out before posting to instagram and the blog but figured surely I am not the only one who has stained their white clothing before? And if I want, I can make it beautiful and poetic if I want it to be. The photographs captured this moment despite me going home and instantly scrubbing those stains out and don’t worry, they came out thanks to some magical products! But hey that’s real life, that’s ordinary and so what? WHy should I pretend that I’m perfect when that is something soo unattainable. These photographs aren’t for an editorial, they are for me and my own beautiful memories.

On the fashion side of things I wore my Dr Martens 1460 Mid Boots and bits of silver jewellery. Very simple and very casual but pretty. My friends belt is also from DISSH and makes for a stunning staple for festival season too!

Thankyou for reading ♡

    I love this so much! Everyone is so obsessed with creating this perfect image of themselves, when none of us are perfect at all. We all get coffee stains but most of us will just photoshop it out to keep the image perfect. Let’s embrace the coffee stain I say!

    Great post! I couldn’t have said it any better! Anytime I wear a plain white shirt it’s prone to be stained by something and sometime you gotta embrace the perfections

    I love this. It’s so true. I made an instagram post the other day about my skin and how I didn’t photoshop anything out. Because the reason I started social media as a personality was to show the real, raw me. I tried photoshopping myself once and you know what? it made feel HORRIBLE. I was actually disgusted at the whole thing. Blurring things out, smoohing lines, spot correcting pimples. It’s so fake, and that’s not me.

    The same about your clothing. I actually love that there are coffee stains on your dress! That’s what happens in REAL LIFE. It doesn’t detract anything from your beauty, in fact it gives you more personality and authenticity. Why hide it?

    Love this!

    That’s why I love the movie American Beauty. It shows seeing the beauty in everything, even a plastic bag floating in the wind :

    Love this! I think in our Instagram/ Social Influencer world we get caught up with the perfection of everything. Its so important to stay honest, we’re not always perfect and we don’t always look amazing.
