Transitioning from Spring to Summer

Hi everyone!

I hope you're all having an amazing day. I am so pumped at the moment and I have been having this urge to get things done - I hope this feeling stays with me a tad longer, at least until exams are over!

For today I decided to share with you an outfit that I shot a while ago but which is now absolutely perfect to start wearing it as it's finally hot enough to wear crop tops, at least in Malta! It's a very simple outfit yet it's perfect for the upcoming spring-to-summer-nights!




I have been LOVING these culottes! They are so comfy yet they give you a look that is very elegant in my opinion. I styled this exact pants a couple of days ago when I went out for dinner on a Friday night. The restaurant I went to was a more classy one so I switched the crop top for a long-sleeve lace black top instead. This is what it looked like! But obviously I prefer this look much more. 



I bought this rust culotte because I really wanted to get out of my comfort zone since this colour is not be a colour that I would usually wear. However, to try and not go overboard I kept it simple by pairing it with a simple black crop top which I had for a while now. I wore my black court heels and opted for my black leather jacket so that if it's still a bit windy I'd still be comfortable.




That's all for today! Don't forget to 'like' Distorted Priorities and follow me on Instagram.

See you all next time!

Love,
Deborah X

Spring Lookbook 2018

HI EVERYONE! I am SO excited for this post. I have been preparing and planning this for a couple of weeks now and I honestly put a lot of hard work into this - hours of planning, preparing & an 8-hour filming day to present this to you. I am very proud of this & I am extremely grateful for the people I got to work with. I have been wanting to do something like this for a while now and I finally managed to do it! I present to you my Spring Lookbook 2018 video which you can check out here! Let me know in the comments down below what you think of it (I'm curious!!) or if you want you can message me on Facebook & Instagram!







Obviously, I couldn't do this video without preparing a blogpost to go along with it. Therefore I will go through all five outfits for further details. For details with regards to from where I bought the clothes, make sure to check the video - I listed everything there or else check the details at the end of this blogpost!

Outfit #1 - Wedding Guest






I know wedding season is upon us so I made it a point to include a dress that is perfect for a wedding that you might have coming up. I loved this dress - it's unique, formal & it honestly makes you feel like you can do anything - #princessmaterial! I love the detail of this dress and I love the colour of it - not too sparkly! For shoes, I wore these rose gold strappy sandals which I thought would go perfectly with my dress as well as this nude clutch bag. 







Outfit #2 - Festival Inspired





I have been seeing so many celebrities and youtubers going to festivals all over the world, mainly Coachella. Therefore, I was inspired to create this festival look perfect for springtime (even if you don't have a festival to attend to!) or any upcoming events where this outfit will be suitable. What I loved most about this outfit was obviously this gorgeous black & white sheer kimono as well as the metallic sticker tattoos. The kimono has such a beautiful lace detail that goes along with the lace detail of the white crop top. As for the tattoos,  I've had these tattoos for over a week now and I am so happy with how they still look at the moment. So if you're thinking of purchasing these for the summer time, I guarantee you that you'll have them on for quite a while. I think that you won't have a complete outfit without these metallic tattoos! I wore this skinny high-waisted jeans because I thought it's still a bit cold to wear shorts!



Outfit #3 - Spring Ready!



For this outfit I decided to go for a playsuit. Although a lot of people wear playsuits only during the summer time, I thought that this one is perfect for the spring time. For starters, it has a mid-length sleeve. Also, the colour (in my opinion) is perfect for spring because at this time of the year we start wearing brighter colours after wearing such dull colours during the winter season. I paired it with my rose gold strappy sandals and this beautiful white clutch bag with some golden corners which I absolutely loved! I apologize for being so pale - I need a suntan ASAP!




Outfit #4 - Sporty Casual




I really wanted to include an outfit like this in this lookbook. I wanted to include something that is fun and casual but something that can still make a statement. I chose this blue pants with a thick yellow stripe on the side and I paired it with this Brooklyn shirt which I tied with a knot to give the outfit more style  rather than leaving it as it is. For shoes, I simply paired it with my white trainers.




Outfit #5 - Lady in Black!




For this last outfit I wore something that I had never EVER worn - and that is a jumpsuit. I absolutely loved this, they're so comfy because you're wearing trousers but they are super stylish. Plus, I loved the one shoulder look and the detail on the right shoulder. For shoes, I wore my black court heels and for bag I chose this shoulder bag that has different shades of blues.



And that brings us to the end of this post! Make sure you watch the full Lookbook video right here and let me know by commenting down below or on the video whether you liked it or not and which outfit was your favourite - I'd like to know!
