ESCAPISM – LOOK OF THE DAY
At some point, we often need to escape from the daily routines. One of my escape routes is reading. I quit reading books after my bachelor degree graduation. I do not doubt that some of you can relate with me. Those books… Instead of books, I prefer to read my favorite magazine which more visuals with witty short articles. In this picture I wear silk bomber jacket from Rhumaa, handmade and fair trade certified label inspired by South African culture. I wear this silk bomber jacket with skinny denim in grey from H&M, sweatshirt in black from River Island and silver grey Adidas Tubular from Snipes shop.
The journey to the bookstores (a good Christmas gift here) itself is an escape route. My other escape route is walking. Or maybe wandering is more a correct word to use. Wander for me is walk around while my mind freely on a dream mode. When I walk, with or without the playlist played from the iTunes on my with all black matte covered iPhone 6S, my brains are on vacation. These Adidas Tubular are made for a long comfortable walk.
The third but surely not the last way to escape from my daily routines is enjoying a good lunch and take a time to read, to play with the social media apps on my smartphone or just observing other people around me. In this picture, I enjoyed my favorite BLT sandwich at Sissy Boy Daily where I also often get my lunch on working days.
So, what is your escape?
