As I feel Fall coming, I walk towards it. I love the park in this season: no crowd and just enough people to make you feel part of a larger prospective in your isolated world. I have a new photographer, an old friend of mine, who has made me really happy with her first photos. For this post I picked a casual, comfy, yet chic outfit in two fresh colors to say goodbye to the sunny days. As always, there is a vintage piece. Can you guess which one?

"[...] it's hard to stay mad, when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst [...]" (American Beauty, 1999)
What a great quote for a great movie. You all know what I’m talking about, right? Take these graffiti. They are art, thoughts, and beauty publicly put out there. Back at the time when frescos were populating our churches and palaces, these graffiti would have been considered fine art. Back at the time when posters were the new art trend, these graffiti would have meant something. But now, they are a type of vandalism.

We all know how expensive clothes could be, especially for those who always want to display the latest trends. I am one of them. The problem is: how much money can I really spend on clothing? Definitely not that much considering all other expenses of life (college, food, phone, nights-out, social...). The point is fashion will always keep rolling forward and if we buy new clothes every time a trend changes, we will most likely end up broke. Well, I found a solution to this: my mom's wardrobe.

What I really enjoy about my blog is telling stories through photos. Each post has its own beginning, body, and end. Today's post is about the day I went to the beach, walked barefoot on the sand, played like a little kid in the water, and most of all enjoyed the last days of summer. Today's post is all about the colour blue and all its shades that bring us back to the heavenly sense of a carefree relax. In this regard, I decided to be part of this small piece of heaven by wearing a blue dress and gold sunglasses. Hope you enjoy!

I finally found a place by my house where I can take photos whenever I have free time. For a casual/chic afternoon I decided to wear a comfy black dress with a pair of nude sandals. The most comfortable touch is the black backpack: definitely a good idea when you are having one of those "I FEEL LAZY" days. Kisses from Francesca!

Hey guys! The past month has been super busy with social and private life. I definitely needed a vacation, so I went to Zakynthos, Greece. It was pure fun at every moment of the day. I would suggest everyone my age to visit Laganas (Greece) for a week. Coming to this post's outfit, I decided to wear a classic combination of black and white to make everything classy and edgy at the same time. Hope you enjoy! Kisses from Francesca!
I have good news: there is a new e-Store on my blog!
You could buy clothes from my personal selection. It is a selection of pieces by different e-Stores, such as NastyGal, Sheinside, Free People, Lotta Stensson and many more, unified under one e-Store: Thefrugalmix e-Store.

Hey guys, how was your weekend? Mine was very busy but fantastic. I also had time to go for a photo shoot. I went to the country side and I decided to create a country-chic look by wearing a super comfy romper and a pair of brown ankle boots. I was not sure if it would have looked better with or without the belt, so I decided to take photos in both ways. Hope you all enjoy! xx

All I want to say today is: "We don't deserve a love story if we do not treat it with respect. Love is purity, it is not a battle."
Today's post has its setting by a tennis court. I would imagine someone asking "where is the tennis court?" Well, I went there to take pictures and it was closed. At that point, I just decided to take photos by a parking lot. I wore a pair of vintage shorts with a lace bralette and black tank top.
