Monochrome (with a touch of colour) and plans for August

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Black and white is a timeless combo that is understated yet very sophisticated. I love this look but also like to add a touch of pink to make it more “ME’.

I mentioned numerous times how much I love white dresses (most recently here),  and here’s another oldie but goodie from one of my-go to brands – Self Portrait. Seriously I’ve been living in them this summer and I am not planning to stop. Adding black accessories is always a winning combination but to be honest I own very few. This Miu Miu bag was a sale buy few years ago and although I don’t wear it very often it is so useful to have. Nice black clutch is a wardrobe staple and there are occasions when I’m so glad I have it.

But rather than going full on monochrome I added my fuchsia Jimmy Choo sandals. I wore this look for a dinner with friend and I think it’s nice summery outfit with the black adding  chicness to it.

By the way these are the last photos taken before my operation. If you don’t know what I’m talking about you can read all about it here. I am excited to share with you my new look soon. I am very happy with the healing progress so far although in the last couple of days it felt a bit sore.

Last week was a busy one and I didn’t have any day off, catching up on everything and everyone and it was quite tough after two weeks of doing nothing. This week is already shaping up to be a busy one but I am really trying to keep a balance and take more time off. I really want to up my yoga too, because I seriously can tell the difference when I have been doing it regularly and when not. I feel so much better after but sometimes struggle to find the time but I just need to stop making excuses and do it.

August is a time when lot of people take time off but I usually don’t go on holidays because everything is extra busy and much more expensive and I much prefer travelling in September. But it’ll be a good time for me to slow down a little and I think I will be blogging a bit less often just this month and really concentrate on myself and my wellbeing while everyone is away. It’s so important!

What are your plans for August?

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..

Have you visited Fait Maison yet?

White dresses forever

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I really hope you’re not fed up of seeing me in a white dress but I really do love them. They’re so versatile and perfect for summer!

What I love about white dresses is that they are literally like a blank canvas and you can play with the accessories to create many different looks. You can style them up or down and wear them for many different occasions. This dress is 100% cotton so really great for the weather we’ve been having.

Here are some of my other white dresses 1, 2, 3, 4.

This dress is from Mango (unfortunately sold out) and I must say I’m really loving Mango at the moment. I used to shop there a lot years ago and then I kind of went off it, but recently I’ve been buying quite a few things there and loving their style again. The quality is really good, they use a lot of natural fabrics (so important in this heat) and the prices are very reasonable. Most of the pieces I bought recently I bought at ASOS (you probably know I’m obsessed with that shop) but I’m planning a trip to actual Mango store soon.

Have you rediscovered any brand recently?

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.

This season’s biggest trend

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Polka dots have emerged as this Spring/Summer’s biggest trend and judging by what I’ve seen of the new collections so far, it’s here to stay. I personally love polka dots and declared my love for it already here, but if you haven’t got into the trend yet, don’t despair. This print is easier to wear than you think.

If you don’t feel brave enough to wear  it head to toe (polka dot dresses are everywhere!) why don’t you start with a smaller item like a top or even shoes! Polka dot shoes are so adorable (case in point).

But here I’m showing you hot to take it easy with polka dots and I can tell you this top has been on heavy rotation. It’s so easy to style, although it’s quite boxy and I do like to add a belt on it. It goes well with trousers and skirts as well.

If you’re new to polka dots, keep the rest of the outfit simple and stick to neutral accessories. Because I love this print I wanted to add a bit more colour to the look with my handbag. It’s my favourite styling trick – hence I have so many pink handbags – they’re the easiest way to add colour to your outfit. I actually wore this outfit for a breakfast at Laduree with my friend and then I went to work so I think it’s very versatile. Polka dots are smart enough for work but are still fun and playful. This outfit was comfortable but stylish, I definitely think the polka dots made it more interesting. What do you think?

This top is from  100% linen so it’s perfect for this heatwave and it’s now on sale! Get yours here.

Do you love polka dots?

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?
