Goodbye autumn

DallowayTerrace3

Wow this year has really flown by. I can’t believe it’s nearly November! The summer time has officially ended (I did enjoy the extra hour in bed) and it seems to have gotten cold literally overnight. I feel like the whole October was so mild it seemed more like Indian summer but we have gone straight to winter. This weekend felt very cold and it’s the end of outfits like this one. I’m wrapping up from now on.

Good bye lighter layers and light fabrics, hello over the knee boots and cashmere (I just bought this jumper, it’s on sale and I have it in two colours). One thing I will keep on wearing is burnt orange (new popular colour for me as mentioned here) and I will definitely be pairing it with pink among other colours.

Recently I’ve been really into a paper bag waist skirts and trousers. It’s a very flattering style (your legs look longer and your waist smaller) and it’s very comfortable. I’ve been wearing these trousers a lot (as seen also here in more casual way) and I must say I love adding my own belt (rather than the one they come with) to change the look and dress it up as well. I must say I now own two designer belts and they have been such a great investment because they really elevate your look.

So who’s excited for November? I’m going to see a ballet I’ve never even heard of later in the month and I’m very excited. Also the Christmas decorations will go on soon everywhere and I really love London dressed up. And I must admit that as much as I’ve enjoyed the prolonged summer and such a lovely and warm October I am now ready for winter clothes and jumpers and coats and all that.

What are you looking forward to in the next few months?

How to wear stripes: part 1 – jacket

howtowearstripesjacket1

I’m starting a new series today and every Wednesday I will share with you different ways to style an item of clothing or a trend. Starting with stripes. They’re not really trendy, they are timeless and that makes them even better. I love stripes! Put on a pair of jeans, classic Breton top and a pair of cute flats and you’re good to go and chic at the same time. It’s the safest option ever but works every time! I own several Breton tops and they really are a wardrobe staple but if you want to go a little further with your stripes, read on.

Today I’m showing you how to wear a stripy jacket, next time will be top (but not Breton) and then skirt. I wonder which look you will like the best, so make sure you let me know. I have a few stripy jackets as well (told you I loved stripes, I own more stripy items than I can admit) case in point here. In both cases I styled the jacket with a simple white top and jeans. I believe if you’re wearing a statement jacket (which this is what it essentially is) you want to keep the rest of the look simple. If you’re new to striped jacket especially, styling it with jeans is the easiest way.

If you want to look smarter, you can add a pair of cigarette or slim fit trousers. I would mostly keep the top white, because that really shows of the colours well and doesn’t take away the attention from the jacket. That’s your main focus and keep it that way. If you’re feeling playful and more confident with your stripes you can add a fun brooch to really add to the statement.

With accessories keep it simple too. You can choose the same colour shoes that can be found in your jacket, or go for nude or black. Don’t overdo it and really stick to few colours when you’re new to this. As you feel more confident with this look you can really play with it but I really would keep the jacket as your main statement piece and keep the rest simple.

Stripes are such a fun print and make your outfit pop without it looking like you’re trying too hard. They’re effortless but chic. There’s so many options. You can go for two colour or something very colourful and it will brighten your day.

Do you love stripes? Don’t forget to check out my next stripy look next Wednesday.

Fait Maison

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?

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?

5 things to do in London this summer

5thingstodothissummer1.jpg

The main thing I love about living in London? There’s never shortage of things to do! And so much of it is for free! So with summer fast approaching here’s a few tips on what to do in and around London this year.

1.) Enjoy the blooming season. Even though these pictures were taken by displays made especially for the RHS Chelsea flower show (which has now finished), there’s never a shortage of beautiful flower arrangements and the city is in full bloom right now. If you love flowers, make sure you visit some of the vast gardens and parks London has to offer. The gardens at Kensington Palace and Hampton Court Palace are especially beautiful this time of the year and the rose garden in Hyde Park is my regular spot.  And let’s not forget Kew Gardens! They may seem a bit far out but so worth the trip! If you fancy a coffee and cake while enjoying blooming scenery, make sure you visit Peggy Porschen and you won’t be disappointed. They even have new flowery menu too.

2.) Make time for art and culture. The above photo was taken just before I visited the Swan Lake at Royal Opera House. I love going to ballet and opera and even theatre and musicals. There’s so much happening every day, we are literally spoilt for choice. And let’s not forget all the museums and galleries. This summer I’m definitely planning to see the Picasso exhibition, the Alaia one at Design museum is a must see and also the Monet and architecture. These are all paid for but if you want some culture without spending a penny, visit to National Gallery is always nice, also V&A museum is one of my favourites and the Wallace collection is just feast for eyes.

3.) Have a picnic. I don’t know how about you but I live outdoors in the summer. And I’m hoping for a really good weather this year. London has been quite good to us so far so let’s hope it stays. I just love having barbecues with friend and picnics even more. Throw some food in a basket, take a blanket, don’t forget your SPF and head to the nearest park. It’s likely you won’t be alone but it’s a great way to meet people too. Everyone is in better mood in the summer and definitely more chatty so who knows who you might bump into. Or take a book and just enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The nature really is at its best this time of the year.

4.) Make the most of the season. London really comes alive in the summer. There’s so many extra things happening. Many you have to book in advance but not all of them. I can’t wait for things like Wimbledon (on telly still haven’t been to the actually thing but definitely planning to one day..), ASCOT (even if you’re not into horse racing it’s such a fun thing to do), numerous festivals (whether musical or literary ones), open air theatre in Regent’s Park and pop ups and events that will be happening most of summer. I am excited just thinking about it.

5.) Take a trip. Fancy a bit of a change? London has great connections to so many places. Just hop on a train and you can go to the seaside, have a mini city break in some cute places (Cambridge is my favourite) or even jump on a Eurostar and be in Paris in two and a half hours. So what are you waiting for? Where is this summer going to take you?

What are your plans for this summer?

How to wear floral print

Processed with VSCO with s1 preset

Happy bank holiday weekend!

I hope you’re enjoying this beautiful weather. What have you been up to? I’ve had some friends staying with me for few days (they left this morning) and yesterday I wanted to show them few of my favourite spots around London.

We started in Notting Hill and went to some popular Instagram spots and around some pretty colourful streets (Portobello road was crazy busy so I wanted to avoid it as much as we could) and then we went to Churchill Arms pub for lunch (such a pretty pub – if you haven’t been you should check it out), after we took these photos at my absolutely favourite house in London during this time of the year – I mean have you seen anything prettier and continued our journey towards Kensington Palace and gardens (they are all gorgeous too with all these flowers) and ended up our afternoon in Knightsbridge and had couple of drinks there and some nibbles. It was so lovely and the perfect blue skies made it even better.

I couldn’t wait to wear this dress ever since I bought it recently and I thought it would be perfect for Notting Hill and I really wanted to photograph it in front of this house. You probably know the famous quote: Florals for Spring? Groundbreaking! but I genuinely love florals all year round and especially in Spring and Summer.

This dress is perfect if you’re worried about floral print or just starting with it. I suggest to go with plain background, either white/cream like I’m wearing here or black (but to me it’s more wintery). Also I think the print here is quite subtle. I love the long sleeve because even though it gives you more coverage, it’s very breezy and overall the dress is very comfortable. I loved wearing it and I think it will be on heavy rotation this summer. I do love a bit of a maxi dress too and it’s perfect with sandals dressed down or I could dress it up with some heels.

Here are few of my other floral print dresses to give you more inspiration but there is many more throughout the blog. What can I say? I’m a flower girl through and through. 1, 2 and 3.

Do you like florals?
