Autumn florals – printed pants

autumngflorals5

These pants were kind of an impulsive purchase. I walked into a Zara store, saw them there, loved the print, didn’t even try them on and hoped for the best. When my mum saw me in them she asked what was the wild thing I was wearing but I actually love them and have worn them quite a few times already.

The print may be a bit out there but pair them with a simple white shirt and I think they are look smart. I wore them to work and received a few compliments but obviously I wouldn’t suggest wearing them for work if you have strict dress code. But they are fun, very comfortable and and not expensive. So you may see me in them a lot.

I also wore them with my pink Isabel Marant Etoile jumper from last post and I think they’re surprisingly versatile. They’re made from a very light fabric and thanks to the very mild weather we’ve been having they’ve been great, but maybe when it gets much colder they won’t be suitable so I’m making the most of them.

Printed trousers are easier to style than you may think. Just stick to really simple good basics for the rest of the look. White shirt is my wardrobe must have as I already raved about here and it makes anything look more sophisticated.

What do you think of this look? Do you like printed trousers?

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?

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?

Florence – what I wore and how to pack light

Outfit5

I hope you’ve enjoyed  my guide to Florence, here’s again for you part 1 and 2 in case you missed it. In my last post I wanted to share with you all my outfits and tips for packing light.

Look 1: floral strappy dress (from last year) similar option

Look 2: paisley dress, straw wedges

Look 3: Zimmermann dress also love this one and this oneChanel flats, earrings Baublebar

Look 4: floral off the shoulder dress (last year) this year’s version, Gucci belt

Look 5: bright pink pleated dress

Look 6: printed pants Zara, shirred top

I am a serious overpacker. Whenever I go away even for a weekend I plan my outfits well in advance including all my accessories. I like to have shoes and bag options too and definitely different clothes for every day. But there are definitely ways how you can downsize your luggage and pack less and still have a good selection. So here are my top three tips I’ve learnt along the way:

1.) think about the overall colour palette. If most of your items are in certain colour palette they are easier to mix and match together and even with fewer items you get more outfits. This is my rule actually generally. I don’t wear loads and loads of different colours (only occasionally) my wardrobe mostly consists of white (a lot of it), pink (less than you think) and blue with plenty of neutrals like beiges and grey to link it all together. It makes life and dressing easier but still fun. I love my prints playing with accessories  and jewellery to make sure my outfits are not boring. Which brings me onto my other two points.

2.) go for neutral accessories. As boring as it may sound I love nude shoes and bags. They go with everything and look chic. No matter what your colour palette (see above) they will match. Also metallics are good. I love gold sandals and they can look both dressy and casual making them very versatile.

3.) go crazy with jewellery. Earrings, necklaces, bracelets.. you name it. They don’t take up much space in your luggage or weight a lot, but they really make an outfit to stand out. They the perfect finishing touch and can take an outfit from day to evening in an instant. Just add a bit of sparkle and you’re done.

Have you got any exciting trips planned? What are your tips for packing?

Florence guide part 2

Florence31

In part one of my Florence guide I shared my top 3 must do things that are more cultural or discovering the city. Today I want to share with you where to eat to have amazing views like you see above (and you can shop there too), where to have a good drink and even better views! and few other things that may not be as well known but are worth seeing.

First let’s start with the place where I had my coffee and pasta below and just enjoyed these spectacular views. I can tell you I found this place by complete coincidence and even my friend who lives in Tuscany and has been to this particular place many times didn’t know about this cafe terrace. It’s right next to Piazza della Repubblica in a shopping centre called laRinascente. The shopping centre alone is quite good and they have some good selection of brands there mid-range to high-range priced with ladies fashion , beauty and homewear. The cafe on top (6th floor) is nothing fancy, the selection of food is not big, but if you’re looking for a great Instagram spot this is it. I was lucky I got there at the right time and I got the table with best views. It had downside though as literally everyone was doing mini/big photo shoots right by my table so I couldn’t eat in peace. This is a place you to for a bit of a break, light snack/lunch coffee but mostly photos with amazing background.

If you want beautiful food AND nice atmosphere go to the Continentale Hotel for drinks just before sunset. It gets very busy and you may have to wait for a seat but it’s so worth it. All those sunset pictures below were taken there. The drinks are quite pricey but you get delicious free snacks to go with it. There’s a teeny tiny burger and olives both with truffles! and lots of cheese (obsessed) that are really worth the extra euros for drinks. It’s fairly small and feels quite intimate and has a nice atmosphere.

Both of these places are very different, but both worth checking out.

Florence is not just culture it’s a fashion hub too! There were so many amazing shops and it would be very easy to spend loads of money there. The shops I went to was Chanel near the Palazzo Vecchio, which is beautiful and has beautiful things (which Chanel doesn’t ?!), and I made sure I popped into the Aquazzura boutique while there. Aquazzura is one of my favourite shoe brands and the designer comes from Florence and that’s where their flagship is and headquarters. The boutique is beautiful and I wanted to buy everything (but I was a good girl this time..). It’s very easy to find. If you walk down from Ponte Vecchio down the river you will see it on your right hand side. The staff was lovely and I go to talking to one of the sales associates about my love for the brand and he invited me to a private event they’re having with the designer next week! I couldn’t believe it but unfortunately I couldn’t attend because I was leaving before the event. But what a nice gesture 🙂

Few other things I wanted to mention is the beautiful synagogue I stumbled upon. I saw the green cupolas from distance and just wanted to see what it was and I was mesmerised by its beauty so went in. You can use proper camera there so all photos were taken by an iPhone but I’m glad I found it and took quite a few pictures there. Not far from there are these hidden gardens that are part of their university and it’s a nice place to take a breather from all the culture and shopping.

On my last day I spent a day in Pisa. I was flying from there again and got there early to visit the Square of Miracles where the Leaning Tower of Pisa is and have a little wander around. Everyone told me that Pisa is very disappointing that’s it’s just the Tower and that’s it but I found it quite charming and full of some beautiful buildings. The square of Miracles itself is very full of tourists but I think it’s definitely worth visiting. When I first spotted the tower I got a massive grin on my face. It is a very interesting piece of architecture and shouldn’t be missed when visiting Tuscany. You only need few hours to spend there but make sure you do it.

That takes my guide to the end. In my next two posts I will share my top 5 beauty products when travelling and also all my outfit I wore during this trip.

If you have any questions about anything feel free to ask in the comments below or send me an email. I have also loads more photos on my Instagram and instastories.

Have you visited any of these places?

Florence guide part 1

Florence14

I’ve just come back from Florence and I didn’t want to leave! It’s such a beautiful city full of culture, art, history, architecture and amazing shopping – it’s everything I could wish for. I took loads and loads of photos so apologies in advance for the amount I will share. I will break my  guide into 2 or 3 parts to cover it all.

On Monday I flew to Pisa (it’s much cheaper) and took a bus straight to the airport to fairly central part of Florence. It was actually nice to be driving through Tuscany (it takes about 70 minutes) and see the beautiful countryside. I definitely plan to see more of that on another trip. I arrived in the early evening, checked into my hotel, freshened up and set out to explore straight away. It was nice warm evening and I caught beautiful sunset over the river. I wore this Zara dress which is perfect for travelling. It’s super comfy, I like the length and long sleeves – perfect for a plane as you don’t have to worry about exposing too much or being cold and just be comfortable.

The next day I set out very early because there was a lot I wanted to cover. First I just wandered through the streets a little bit, but then I headed towards the Piazzale Michelangelo (Michelangelo square) for the best views of the whole of Florence, through Giardino Delle Rose (rose garden) – beautiful views and beautiful flowers. They have an amazing amount of different types of roses. Definitely a must see. I spent quite a lot of time there as the views are really breathtaking and you can just sit down and take it all in. After taking a lot of steps to get there, you may need a break.. There you may also see one of the two copies of Michelangelo’s David (the other copy is outside Palazzo Vecchio) and the original in the Galleria dell’Accademia (all in Florence).

From there I went down and up again to one of many Florentine churches, more amazing views and I saw someone getting engaged there which was really lovely (yes he got on one knee) (insert heart emoji). Then I continued on that side of the river walking towards the Boboli gardens and the Medici palace before coming back to more central Florence over the Ponte Vecchio – most famous Florence bridge and also the busiest. There were some lovely jewellery shops there (you could easily spend a fortune) but also many many tourists so I tried to get out of there quick. Beware! Florence is full of people and large crowds at most places.

After I had lunch at the Piazza Della Signorina, with the view of Palazzo Vecchio right in front of me and one of the David’s and lots of other beautiful sculptures, did a bit of window shopping at Chanel lusting after all of their bags and shoes and a bit of shopping at more affordable shops.. Had gelato, and did more wandering through the streets and just made the most of the beautiful city.

Advice: lunch with a view is nice, but food is much nicer and cheaper in little side streets. Everywhere you go there’s places to eat and have a drink and the best places are usually hidden and away from the crowds.

I walked past the Duomo every day. It was very close to my hotel and it’s very central so nearly everywhere you go you can go past it. It really is very beautiful. Photos don’t do it justice. Unfortunately on this occasion I didn’t get to go in but I would definitely recommend it and it’s something I’m planning to do next time. You can see it from many angles from many places and it always took my breath away. If you only see one thing in Florence see the Duomo.

Number two is climbing up to see it all from the Michelangelo square.

Number three is visiting the Uffizzi Gallery. There are many museums and galleries in Florence (I told you it was full of art and culture) and it is impossible to visit them all in one trip. But the one I did and would definitely recommend is the Uffizzi. I spent over 3 hours there and didn’t see it all so will try to visit again, but I saw the main things I wanted to see. My favourite painting is the Birth of Venus by Botticelli and it was an amazing experience to see the original in real life and also the Primavera. Also the Leonardo da Vinci‘s rooms are incredible. Those were the highlights form me but there is so much more. I could just write an article about Uffizi!

I also stumbled across  a beautiful Synagogue, had a coffee and lunch with a view that I definitely recommend, drinks at a place that is a must visit and much more! But more about that next week.

Have you been to Florence? What was your favourite part?

Pleats please and mixing high end with high street pieces

Pinkdress7

Trends come and go, but a pleated skirt or a dress is something you will reach out for time and time again.

It’s one of those things that is totally appropriate for work, casual lunch or even evening soiree. Wear it with ankle boots, trainers or pointed pumps and you will always be on point. I love buying things that are timeless and I will get my wear out of. Whether it’s cheap of expensive, why should you wear an item only once or even one season and that’s it? That’s not my way of thinking and to prove it you can see this dress worn in early winter very different way.

One of the reasons I love pleats is that they add volume but just the right amount. I love fit and flare dresses or fitted tops and loose skirts, it’s a look easily achieved with pleats and it’s flattering on everyone. It’s also an interesting detail on a simple item without being too much.

Another thing I wanted to mention is mixing high street pieces with high end designer items. It’s my favourite thing to create an outfit. In here I’m wearing mostly high street pieces (I’m addicted to ASOS and Zara as you may have noticed) and just added my Gucci belt which by the way has been such a great buy and I must say I’ve been wearing it much more than I originally thought. It’s such a cool way to accessorise any look and add a bit of interesting detail without it being too much. I often wear high street clothes and add a designer or if I’m wearing designer dress (Self Portrait and Zimmermann being my weaknesses) I would dress it down with high street accessories. I think this is the best way to look original because if you’re wearing head to toe Zara for example, I’m sure it’ll look great but it’s likely many people may have exactly  the same outfit. On the other hand if you wear head to toe designer it may look a bit too much. But that’s just my opinion. What do you think?

Pleats are classic but fun and versatile. Do you like pleats?
