Hello there summer lovers,

Have you started packing for your holiday yet, or are you at the booking stage now? Either way, don’t forget to throw in your bag an absolute gem of an outfit that will make you feel incredible and look like you’re ready to have the best time in the burning sun. You’re in the perfect place because I’m now sharing one Summer outfit that you need to wear on next holiday.

What do you think about ruffles in general? But what about ruffles on holiday? I have to say, I’m a huge huge believer in ruffles and statement blouses. They can make up an outfit in seconds. I absolutely adore wearing special items and I can’t believe how quickly I can create new styles using blouses in different textures and fabrics.

For this look, I went for a white top that goes so well with high waist jeans. The top shows cleavage without showing too much. You can go for different colours or keep it simple in white. Find my top here. The jeans I’m wearing are actually my mother’s (authentic mum’s jeans here) that a designer friend of mine helped me rip. I’m absolutely positive that you can find a pair in your mother’s wardrobe or find a really cool pair in a vintage boutique.

Don’t forget about wearing accessories – it’s a go hard or go homie, know what I mean?

I went for a beautiful pair of earrings that my friend Adriana kindly gifted me. They’re just making the whole look more interesting, find similar here. You can easily create different summer outfits for your holiday if you have the right accessories to hand. Go through your jewellery chest now and pick at least three pairs of earrings, two bracelets and some rings. You’ll then lay your accessories and outfits on your bed and start playing mix & match. Fun guaranteed.

To complete the outfit, I choose this gold belt which I pretty much wear with everything (even as I’m typing this – with a different outfit because the weather is bad again, surprise surprise!). You can find similar here.

Shoes wise, I began to wear low heeled shoes and I feel amazing. My combat boots no longer stay with me everyday of the year. I picked a special pair of red sandals I found in a shop in Bordeaux called Etam. You can find a similar pair here if you live somewhere else in Europe or the States.

Wear this beautiful outfit on rooftops, at beach parties or anywhere you want to make a statement during your holiday. This outfit makes me think of myself in Spain or Latin America drinking Sangria on the beach watching the sunset with Andrei, especially when worn with a red lipstick on. So, if they’re on your bucket list, you know what to wear on your next holiday.

Don’t forget to subscribe to my email list by clicking on the right hand column and keep up with more summer outfits to come. I’m currently preparing some more beautiful outfits and I can’t wait for you to see them and start wearing them.

With all the holiday talk, I forgot to ask, where are you going on holiday this summer?

Lots of love,

No meetings on the calendar, no events you need to attend but the one that you organise for yourself: a relaxing day where you do just what you want! I recently had one of those and I picked to attend the London Cocktail festival, eat Italian and spend some time at the cool bars at the Shard. For that day I wore something else, but for days when I just have a walk or enjoy my time outside, I have my favourite outfit that I will share with you today. So, what should you wear to make the best out of your casual day?

Shape the season in style

It’s not huge news that everyone goes wild on layering in Autumn. Whilst I feel that layering is important and gives that umpf to your outfit (yes, umpf), I like to keep the layering to a minimum on casual days. Two layers is enough for me to feel like I’m in control of my outfit and nothing will be falling off. Do you ever have that feeling that your three-layer outfit looks good only if you wear it in three layers? What I mean by this is: if I decide to lose one layer during the day because it’s too warm, I feel I destroyed the whole concept. Rest assured, that doesn’t mean I don’t wear layers but I’m just more cautious with it; that type of making sure the outfit is still looking snatched. Take your wardrobe on the layering adventure in times when you’re feeling up for it.

What to wear on a casual day?

Nothing says casual more than a vintage denim shirt! Don’t you think so? It says: I’m relaxed, but super pretty. Taken from a charity shop three years ago, this shirt is my number one love for casual days. So, shop the thrift shops for goodies that last.

Obviously if going for a walk you need something comfy on top of that; as I’m not a massive fan of hoodies and the only one I own is a university branded one, I opted for a vest. It’s my shepherd vest which I love to bits. If anyone has a comment, I just say ‘I’m a shepherd’ and it makes people laugh. Fashion is fun and it’s all about embracing what you love to wear. I would recommend you to be confident and take a stand for the things you want to wear even though they might seem unusual to people. Who cares? It’s you who wears the clothes and if you decide to be fun, then be it.

Consider the fact that if you do quite a bit of walking, your shoes need to comply to the standards. I live in my boots and you know it, but whatever is comfy for you but also makes you feel put together, it’s worth wearing. I’ll let you choose trainers for this – I think it’s the only occasion when I think you can get away with it, besides the gym.

Accessories wise, just keep them to a minimum if you’re looking for comfort. A watch that compliments the outfit and has that ‘borrowed from the boys’ look will make your appearance relaxed, but also stylish. The Obaku Viol Granite watch gives me that feeling of I didn’t put too much effort into looking amazing, but I do. It’s that Swedish minimalist design that makes me absolutely love wearing it.

I hope this outfit gave you a quick look into a casual chic outfit for a day out and about. It was mental health awareness day and I believe the best way of celebrating it is to take time for yourself. A relaxed day where you plan to do exactly what you absolutely love doing is the perfect escape from things that stress us every day. Now that you have the right outfit for it, what are you waiting for?

Happy beginning of Autumn, everyone! 🙂

I’m genuinely really excited to share these autumn 2018 trends with you! There are a lot of fun looks on runways for this season, but the ones that caught my interest are: bright colours and tweed. Therefore, I thought to create a super ‘on trend’ outfit for you. Let’s dig into it and see how you can easily recreate this cool look.

Bright colours to inspire your Autumn days

Bright colours are still extra popular this season. To be honest, I was expecting them to take the beat seat, but actually they are poppin’.  I only take this as super good news because just think about it: you don’t have to buy anything new to embrace this trend. Just look through your spring wardrobe for the most colourful items and you’re set. I’m sure you have a shirt or a blazer in a crazy colour 💃🏻 I’ve picked out this yellow blazer as it can keep me warm if needed through out these early Autumn Days.

… now, who is in for some tweed?

Bored of them or not, tweed is the thing for Autumn. They’ll never be out of fashion. Did you actually know that its original name was ’twill’, but a London merchant misread the name written on a package received from Scotland and kept advertising it as ‘tweed’. That sounds like something that I could probably do – I have my own names for things just because I read too fast. You can mix tweed with warm bright colours like in this outfit, or you can go for the same colours in your tweed (blue / grey / brown).

It’s your decision if you want to mix the two trends or keep them separate, but this is a cool outfit overall, so I totally recommend trying it. I would love to see you coming up with Autumn outfits and ideas of how we can get excited about this season’s fashion!

Hello lovely ladies around the world,

Happy International Women’s Day! It’s sunny outside in London today and I highly hope that Spring will settle in soon. In case you’re as excited as I am to chuck your puffer jacket in the back of your wardrobe, I’ve put together a quick (very feminine) outfit for celebrating the beginning of warmer days (fingers crossed!).

Top Favourites this season: Hair wrap, Earrings & White Shirt

One accessory that I’m into (my bestie can confirm) is a cool hair wrap!  You probably have seen this over-sized white Hugo Boss shirt in my 5 basic pieces every cool woman needs post and I can’t help but pair it with this chic burgundy Mango skirt. As there are near different details in the top part of your outfit, you want to keep your shoes classic. I went for these pair of black stilettos that I got in Primark really quick for a party, last year.
