What every wardrobe needs – white shirt

whiteshirt1

After a bit of a summer break, I’m back again! And I really want to be sharing with you more styling tips and talk more about fashion because that’s what I love.

I love creating outfits in my head and planning what to wear tomorrow, the day after and the season ahead.. you get the picture. I’ve bought lots of new things for fall and winter and I’m doing a lot of shoots in the next couple of weeks and will show you my favourite trends and things to wear.

By now you may know that I don’t really follow trends and I prefer to stick to my style which is quite classic and timeless. I prefer pieces that you can wear for years to come, but I do like to mix it with trendier pieces to make it more interesting.

One piece however that is definitely a timeless item and I believe every woman should have in your wardrobe is a simple white shirt. I like mine in stretch cotton and have quite a few of them and also variations of them. White shirt is perfect for those days when you want to be effortless but stylish.

White shirt goes literally with everything and is suitable for any occasion. You can dress it down or up, wear it for work, coffee with friends and even a special occasion with the right outfit. I love wearing mine with jeans, skirts, trousers, you name it.

Roll up the sleeves, add denim cut offs and fancy flats for and effortless summer look. Now that we’re heading to autumn you can pair them with your favourite skirt (printed one gets bonus points) or keep it simple like me and just play with different colours.

The options are endless.

I’m thinking about doing a post about 3 ways to wear a white shirt: casual look, work and evening. Is that something you’d be interested in?

Fait Maison

faitmaison9

Forget Peggy Porschen, forget Elan Cafe, Fait Maison is the place to visit! This is a place that totally gets me and surprisingly it’s still under the radar! Well probably not for too long..

This place has everything! The most beautiful flower entrance that matches my favourite full skirt oh so well, the pretties and comfiest pink sofa in a corner surrounded by more flowers, cute details everywhere and that’s just the decor! The food is just as good and the coffee super instagrammable. But more about that next time. I must admit I’ve only discovered it recently but I’m already hooked!

Seriously the food is delicious: brunch favourites mixed with middle eastern cuisine, amazing selection of teas and coffees, cakes, macarons, you name it.. And the staff is very friendly. And don’t even get me started on the bathroom. You must visit the bathroom..

It’s very close to Gloucester Road station which is a very nice area anyway and there’s lots to do around. You’re just a stone throw away from V&A (one of my favourite museums) and they’ve go so many great exhibitions coming up you could totally make a day out of it. And by the way this is in NO WAY sponsored. I just write about things I love.

And now about the outfit. The skirt is super old Zara. I love wearing old Zara pieces because they’re still great but less people wear them after some time.. And I love this skirt. It’s super comfortable, has elasticated waist (who else loves elasticated waist?!) and pockets. Need I say more? Paired with a little off the shoulder top, all in cotton to survive this heat. And I’m in no way complaining about the heat by the way. I’m loving it! Bring on another month of this (apparently it’s coming).

You may or may not know that I’ve had a little surgery recently and I’m going to write more about it this Friday and share pictures of before and after. I’m very happy with the result so far and it’s not even healed properly yet.

Life feels good right now. Summer and sunshine definitely make me happy but I think things are going well anyway. Long may it last..

Things that make us US

pinkdress3

There are things that make us instantly feel better. Whether it’d be favourite colour, favourite perfume or a piece of jewellery that has a special meaning, using these things has a special “power”.

For me, some of those things are the colour pink, Chanel Chance perfume and my YSL Arty ring. I’ve had that ring over ten years now and wear it every day. I don’t leave the house without it and when I do I don’t feel myself.

I have a lot of perfumes and wear them according to my mood but Chanel Chance is one I have been wearing for years. When I have an important meeting, a date or don’t feel quite myself, that’s the one I reach for. It has a familiarity that to me is empowering and lifting. I always feel certain way wearing it. I feel my best.

And of course the colour pink. I am always drawn to it subconsciously. It’s a happy colour and puts a smile on my face. Some days I wear a lot of pink and some days I wear very little but I definitely feel better when I wear more of it. It is my signature and it has an effect on my like few things have. It’s a mood and confidence booster.

Take this dress for example. It has many ingredients I love – I shared my appreciation for pleats already here, and the colour and length are very me. Although this is not a shade of pink I wear a lot (I tend to go for softer blush pinks) it definitely makes me feel better and more confident.

When I was moving recently, I went through a very stressful period. I didn’t exactly plan the move and it all happened very quickly. In times like these I rely on these things that feel familiar and make us feel better. There are more and I think we all have them and thank goodness. Life goes up and down. We all go through happy periods and times when life feels a bit tough. It’s good and important to have a strong support group of friends and family but also little things that make us feel US even when everything feels wrong.

What are some of the things that make you feel yourself?

How to wear a denim dress

denimdress8

I love dresses and I love denim and denim dresses are a wardrobe staple for me. I have a few and wear them all throughout the year.

My tip to wearing denim is to always dress it up for a smart casual look and therefore it’s suitable for more occasions. I always wear heels with denim and usually add a blazer or a boucle jacket when I’m wearing jeans. My style is quite elegant anyway but I think with dressed up denim you can easily go from day to night and it’s my preferred way.

I bought this dress in winter sales and knew I would wear it a lot come summer, but surprisingly wore it few times in the winter as well layered over a jumper. Good denim dress never goes out of style which can be said about any denim piece. I have a Diesel denim jacket that a bought on eBay for under £10 more than 10 years ago and still take it everywhere with me.

Denim is probably the most versatile fabric and because it’s made from cotton it’s perfect for summer. I love the shape of this dress, the neckline and the length – it’s my dream dress. I’ve worn it for few different occasions and it always seem to work.

Here I’ve teamed it with my favourite heels the Hangisi pump by Manolo Blahnik. They are just so pretty! They’re a bit high as I prefer to wear lower heels these days but sometimes I make an exception.

If you follow me on Instagram you probably know that I am currently in Czech Republic spending some time with my family and I just shared a video on IGTV about  a surgery a had done while here. If you haven’t seen it yet go have a look and I will share the result and new pictures on Friday here for my beauty post.

The sale bargain

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Happy Monday! I hope you’re enjoying the London heatwave because I’m loving it.

Today I want to show you this dress I actually bought at least a year ago and can’t believe I haven’t shared it before. It’s by Peter Pilotto and I bought it for less than a £100 in the sales. Now that the sales are in full swing it’s the best time to get your bargains like this one. I only buy designer clothes in the sales or with some sort of discount ( I wrote a big article about how to get the best deals here) and I love searching for hidden gems at a good price.

This is such a great dress I still can’t believe my luck when I found it. I love the high street but the amount of detail you get with a designer items can never be rivalled by cheaper stores. Sometimes it’s good to get few nicer pieces for certain days that require something a bit more special. I’m all about mixing and matching the high street and high end. I  also love that I can wear this dress for work and than add a bit of a lipstick and put on some heels when I’m going out after. It’s very versatile.

You may have noticed I wear a lot of white. I actually wear it much more than pink, I just like to add my pink accessories. People are afraid of white but I think it goes well with most skin tones and matches so well. It’s the best colour to wear in the summer and especially during a hot summer.

I’m still looking for my best bargain of this season. I must say I’ve been good these past few months and not spending too much because I’ve got some big expenses coming soon (more about that later) and what I mostly wanted were some sandals and I haven’t found any I loved. Problem is I have big feet and everything I like is sold out in my size. It’s something that really frustrates me, because finding my size can be such a struggle.

Have you found any great bargains this season?

How to wear a wrap dress

pinkwrapdress8

Do you sometimes get the feeling when you see a dress (or something else) and it’s so perfect and you just have to have it. This happened with this dress. It was literally love at first sight! I love the fact that in many ways it’s very me – pink, fit and flare, below the knee.. but on the other hand it’s a shade of pink I don’t own yet – it’s a salmon pink bordering on orange and it’s not a colour I usually go for.. It’s embroidered and I don’t think I own any embroidered dress and it’s a wrap dress and I often struggle with those.

But I seriously love it! I wore it over the weekend and didn’t want to take it of. It just made me feel good. The reason I often struggle with wrap dresses is because I think the cleavage is often too low, they keep opening when it’s windy and they don’t often fit right on a tall person. When it arrived (I ordered it online) I knew I wanted to keep it, but I wasn’t sure about the fit and it seemed very see-through. I didn’t know what to do and then it hit me! I put a slip underneath and it worked wonders. It helped with the low cleavage, wasn’t see through any more and I didn’t have to worry about the wind any more seriously life changer.

(Some time ago I bought a slip dress in Marks and Spencer (I needed it for a particular dress) and I never thought I would wear it as much as I do. It’s such a good thing to have in your wardrobe! There’s so many dresses that are little bit see-through and I realised a good  slip is a life safer.)

I could go out and just enjoy my weekend. It has been such a beautiful weather here in London and I’ve been trying to spend as much time as I can outside and make the most of it. So on Saturday, wearing my new dress, my friend and I went to west London for a coffee and cake al fresco and then for a long walk in the south west London. It’s not an area I visit that often and it was nice just to wander through new streets and discover new hidden gems and it was so so lovely. We came across the amazing car in the first photo and I couldn’t resist posing in front of it. I love old cars. We ended up in a pub and had a bbq and couple of drinks (I had Aperol spritzer should you care) and it was just such a nice day.

I discovered a new cute coffee shop which I can’t wait to tell you about but you’ll just have to wait for now.

How was your weekend? Do you love wrap dresses?

Summer time in London: Coppa Club

Processed with VSCO with s1 preset

First of all apologies for the quality of these photos. They were taken on an iPhone at golden hour, but the light was so beautiful and it was such a lovely evening I wanted to share them anyway. Life is not always perfect so why should photos be, right?

Sometimes you just have to live in the moment and make the most of it and this was totally impromptu evening and that’s probably what made it even better. I was invited by couple of friends to join them for few drinks after work at Coppa Club by Tower Bridge (there’s more of them) and because I love this place (I reviewed it in winter here) I couldn’t say no. It was a perfect London evening with the weather nice enough but not too hot and I must say evenings like these make me fall in love with this city more and more. I mean the view of Tower Bridge at sunset just takes my breath away.

Coppa Club is such a great place to meet up with people. It’s got a great vibe, very relaxed atmosphere and is not too pricey (that’s something to say in London) and they always do something cool outside that’s not only totally instagrammable but a must do when you’re in London. In the winter they did these cool igloos that were so popular you had to book months in advance (see them here) and I must say I am loving these tropical vibes this summer. You actually feel like you’re on a vacation. I mean imagine I wasn’t drinking wine but a colourful cocktail with a little umbrella and you would almost think I was at some far flung destination. But to remind you where you are, you have these amazing views of iconic London landmarks.

If you’re in London or are visiting this this summer I definitely recommend you to have drinks at Coppa Club (they do delicious food too). And no this is NOT a sponsored post. I just really enjoy this place and have a great time every time I go.

I wore a dress from last year from Current Air which is this cool LA brand. I really like their stuff. I love the fact that this dress has long sleeves (London often gets chilly in evenings) but it’s still breezy and super comfortable. I wore it in the winter with OTK boots, therefore it’s versatile too. I keep saying it but I like to get a lot of wear out of my clothes.

And my ASOS flats have been on constant repeat. They’re so pretty and comfortable you can literally wear them all day and feel fine. Lot of people have been asking me about them and commenting on them on my Instagram so here’s a link for you so you can all have them.

Have you been to Coppa club? Are you planning to go?
