Burberry Baby in the Wild #StyledByMarina
Happy new year guys! Let's kick off 2018 with a new outfit post. I recently had a lovely, casual stroll down the botanical garden near my house. It was a sunny winter afternoon, the seemingly endless rainy weather has finally decided to leave my city alone for the time being. Naturally, I had to seize the moment to venture outside, enjoy the sunshine while it lasted. It is only fitting that I do a little photoshoot for my outfit of the day.
It is truly an adorable scene that even my cat has decided to came out hiding in his usual spot under the chair and came to the balcony to relish the sunshine and sense the fresh smell of herbs planted by my mom. Every now I then I get a little jealous of my cat, simply because he seems to live a rather nonchalant and carefree life than most humans do.

I wore a loose fitting, wool plaid shirt similar to the iconic Burberry print. It is not authentic Burberry, of course. Nevertheless, I couldn't help but notice that Burberry print has evidently been the talk of this autumn/winter within the fashion community, again. Although technically it has always been a classic and symbolic high-end fashion brand and it's unmistakeably Burberry tartan trenchcoats, scarfs and handbags have dominated the industry for hundred years. So I went on a hunt for clothing items that have the similar "Burberry Plaid" but for much less money. Once I found them, I've got to share 'em with you guys.
With my top and my hat being quite noticeable already, for my bottom, I chose to go for a more muted gray, wool high-waisted pants. I also decided to wear my trusty boots from Forever 21.
High-end luxury brands have always fascinated people, predominantly women. We often find ourselves wanting more handbags, shoes, and clothes than we ever need. Don't get me wrong, I love exploring different styles and creative ways to spice up my everyday outfits. However, as much as I adore these beautiful and elaborate luxury designer items, I do believe we could spend much less money on equally nice clothing.
To me, having style and tastes is so much more than just how many Louis Vuitton bags you own, or how many pairs of Jimmy Choo you bought. Instead of always thinking about WHO you are wearing, isn't it much more fun to let people wonder: "Woah, your style is super unique, like nothing I've seen before!" or "Did you put together this outfit yourself, you are so creative."
Personal style transcends brands, wealth and generations. It is a timeless state of mind. It's something no amount of money could buy. For us, fashion lovers, each outfit we pour our heart and soul to create reflects who we are as a person inside and out, it's a representation of our taste towards fashion, our artistic endeavors and our influence in this community. So go out there and be fun, be free and be creative, be happy with whatever you choose to wear and have confidence in yourself :)
