Hello my favourite fashionistas,

It’s summer time!

Well, in most of parts of the world is – so the perfect time to talk about our favourite summer outfits that you can easily take to your favourite resorts around the world. No matter where you go, a beach resort or a city break adventure, you will find something you can wear and feel amazing in, so keep on reading.

I recently came back from a city break / beach resort getaway in Palermo, Italy and I packed practical outfits that allowed me to fully enjoy my time and feel amazing everyday. It’s a skill that took a long time to master (trust me haha), but I just feel that this time, I didn’t pack stuff that I didn’t wear. I’ll show you my everyday outfits that I used to wear at beach and around the city. Let’s get into it.

City break outfit

I can’t explain how easy it is to move around in this outfit! What I love most about it is the cute aspect of it. The ribbon on my Reserved shoes and the silk material of the River Island top, makes the outfit ‘flow’ nicely on the narrow streets of Palermo while enjoying a cannoli and a glass of Aperol Spritz. No wonder my favourite country is Italy! MY TIP: Wear a hat in case the sun is strong – I swear by a hat as this one was super helpful for keeping any headaches away!

Long pants? African inspired shirt? I’m all about that! To be honest, I’ve worn these Zara pants with a swim suit, a crop top and many other combos throughout my time there. So, I think they can go as my top worn item!

Do you love black leather jackets? Me too! Although I didn’t wear one in three years now,  I find leather jackets to be perfect for the transition between spring and summer. Finding the perfect one might be a challenge, so get browsing and follow my tips to choose your own.

History of the leather jacket

You might not know this, but the first leather jacket was created for fighter pilots in the first World War! It only made it in fashion in the 90’s and it remained at the cool item of a wardrobe.

How to choose your leather jacket

Look at the leather’s quality 

That’s a pretty straight forward advice, but do look out for the leather’s quality. Signs of early damage while it’s already on the store’s hanger has to make you forget about it. Just imagine how many damages it will suffer from while you’re wearing it. If it’s NOT super soft, then the leather will pass the test of time and look its best after you’ve worn it for a while.

Check the interior fabric

Assuming you’re buying it for Spring, you still want to check its interior. If it looks that it will keep you warm enough for chilly afternoons, then it will make a really good buy. The last thing you want is to freeze in it while sipping cocktails on a rooftop.

Select the right length

I love it when its length is just above my waist. If it’s longer than that, there are chances for me to not like it just as much. That length makes you look taller and goes with pretty much any style: worn with a jumper, over a dress or over a short top.

Look out for quality zippers

The zippers have to be of good quality because you want your jacket to look on point. Zippers can both ruin and lift up a jacket, so stay close to the quality ones.

Get the right fit

I can’t stand leather jackets that are baggy and loose. For me, the right fit is the one that stays tight to your body. It makes you look uber chic and ah did I mention you can wear it with a dress in spring?

Clean it regularly

There are different special cleaning solutions you can use for its maintenance. The leather can break, so in order to prevent this from happening you might want to give it a rigorous clean once in a while.

Hello lovelies,

I am so happy to say that FINALLY, I have found the perfect Spring Suit. I can’t actually say that I was looking for one in particular, but surely I wanted a nice cut blazer. For me, yellow or mustard have always been the perfect colours to break into spring, as also seen in 2 outfit ideas to make you look gorgeous this spring. Why should you need a suit? Well, we all should have something elegant in our wardrobe that we can wear on an everyday basis as for party dresses I am sure we all have.

Wearing Women Suits 

I love a beautiful suit and this one is not a one piece, but rather two pieces that I have individually selected from the Zara website. They go so well together! Add a black pair of stiletto shoes and a cool clutch. It’s so simple to dress elegant! Simpler than you might think.

Hi girls,

It’s Autumn already – that great transition between summer and winter that always gets us questioning what would be the perfect items to wear. Don’t let yourself too influenced by the ‘latest’ trends that try to make you run to the shops and buy all the ‘new-in’ items. Evaluate really well whether you need THAT or not. Let’s say the new item consists of a ripped T-shirt. Chances are that you will only wear it once or twice. So, why invest in something that will only occupy space in your wardrobe? Today we’ll talk about the five items you need to conquer the autumn fashion.

First of all, a wardrobe is really complete if you own basics, but know how to match them with different accessories / clothes. Why should you have basics? Simply because you can also wear them on their own, but it would be really easy for you in the future to assign the basics to different styles to create great outfits. However, let’s talk about the basics now –a mix and match blog post is coming up soon.

It’s important to have your essentials in black or white so when you add other clothes, you will keep the chromatic balance – as you should never wear more than 3 colours at once.

A Black Body Top

The black body top is a must in every woman’s wardrobe.  It looks amazing underneath a cool jumper or shirt and it will keep you warm during those rainy days.

A minimalist white button-down shirt

There is no need to tell you about the wonders a white shirt can do an outfit. You can knot it in front or tuck it in. I wouldn’t wear it untucked (at least in front) or unknotted, just because I believe it can make the body look big and bulky, unless I wear it on top.

A pair of black faux leather pants

Ah, how much I love these! Faux leather pants can spice up an outfit and make you feel like you’ve just walked out from a rock music video.

 Black Heel Boots

A pair of heel boots can make any outfit look super stylish. I feel they can look so cool with pants or with a short-knitted dress.

A black hat

This is a basic (from my point of view) but also a statement item to wear in autumn and winter. Take my word for it and go get a good quality hat to wear this season.

I am wearing:

Zara Black Lace Body Top

Hugo Boss White Shirt

H&M Black Faux-Leather Pants

Miss Guided Boots

Zara Hat

Note: If leather pants are not for you, you can add a black pair of skinny jeans for your essentials – the effect will be quite similar. Also, if you prefer dresses to pants, a little black dress can for sure be included in your list. A great alternative for basics instead of a pair of heels can be a pair of army boots (I AM A HUGE FAN); just please do not consider trainers as essentials or basics – they look good only when you work out.

 

What items do you have in your essentials? Scarves? T-shirts? Please let me know in the comment sections, so I can find out other opinions and add some more on my list. I really value your comments!

Until next time,
