Today`s Outfit: Sleeveless

I have no idea why my hair looks slightly red in these photos. Both my boyfriend and I are down with colds and since the Rudolph red nose isn`t exactly the look I`m going for, outfit photos have been kinda slow this week. Even while taking these photos we had to take a break every minute to run to wipe our noses. Oh well, maybe the redness of my nose has been transmitted to my hair as well. Ok, bad joke, sorry.

P.S. Don`t forget to enter 'THE' giveaway for a chance to win a pair of Le Specs sunnies! You know you want it.

Today`s Outfit: Valentino Cat Eye Sunglasses

The moment I got these sunnies I knew I wanted my first outfit with them to be something retro inspired. I wanted to go for that simple and classic Audrey Hepburn look with capri trousers, flats and a simple top. I don`t actually own a pair of capri trousers but I thought these white skinny ones could be a good replacement. The gingham print does a great job as well in keeping the look vintagey. What do you think?

New In: Valentino Sunglasses


Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
(Cat eye Valentino Sunglasses)

I`ve been craving for quite a while for a pair of cat eye sunglasses but I was a bit unsure if they will suit me or not. I always loved that 50s retro feel it gives to an outfit and these classic Valentinos are the perfect addition to my collection.  The subtle cat eye, the golden details at the edges, and the brown colour made me fall in love with them at first sight.
I`ll show you tomorrow more photos of my outfit as well.

Today`s Outfit: The Paisley Mini Dress

If you follow me on Instagram you probably have already seen a preview of this lovely dress when I got it a few days back. Needless to say I love everything about it, the print, the length and the shape; all kinda remind me of the `60s mod trend. 
The 60s represent one of most loved eras in fashion and we have seen it every year being reinvented in one way or another. Usually too much of anything can become boring but this time I feel like there is still so much more to explore!

Today`s Outfit: The Cut Out Polka Dot

Quirky clothing pieces are the first to catch my eye when I`m shopping. I love an edgy and unusual design that I know it`s gonna make my outfit pop. Sometimes it`s becoming quite challenging when I have to dress up to go buy groceries and I realise I don`t have any basic clothing. Passer byers must think that I try too hard but really, it`s just because I don`t have any normal clothing! 
So I guess it`s no surprise why I`ve fallen (once again) in love with this blouse and it`s unique cut-outs. 
What do you think?

Summer Dreams: The Best Warm Weather Footwear


With the summer set to be a long and (hopefully) hot affair, getting your hands on some cool and comfortable shoes is vital. Pumps, plimsolls and espadrilles have all been thrust into the limelight of late, and their lightweight and versatile design combines with breathable fabrics to make them the quintessential summer shoe.

Multi-purpose shoes for a multi-purpose individual

When you’re struggling to cope with the demands of everyday life and the temperature is pushing 30˚C, you don’t want to be wearing heavy leather boots. Flip-flops or sandals might work, but they lack practicality for individuals who are constantly on the move. If you’ve ever run over your toes with a shopping trolley, you’ll know what we mean.

Pumps, plimsolls and espadrilles are the perfect footwear compromise. Great with skirts, shorts or jeans, they can multi-task as well as you can, and because they won’t break the bank, you can treat yourself to more than one pair.

You get what you pay for

The only drawback to these kinds of shoes is that they might not be the most durable, and those who subject them to regular use may find themselves replacing them on a frustratingly-regular basis.

However, this usually has less to do with the design of the shoe and more to do with the manufacturer. A cheap or poor quality pair of shoes might last a few months, whereas products from respected brands like Lacoste will last through this summer – and the next.

Lacoste has a great range of summer classics – from slip-on pumps to wedge plimsolls and lace-ups. There’s also a range of cool Velcro trainers if you fancy a slightly sturdier option that still gives your feet the chance to breathe. With plenty of colours and styles to choose from, you’ll always find a suitable pair for whatever outfit you’re wearing, making them the perfect choice this summer.

The only shoes you’ll need this summer

Along with the standard vest top, sunglasses and shorts, pumps, plimsolls and espadrilles are the essentials of any summer wardrobe. And if the summer is as nice as we’ve been promised, they’ll see a great deal of wear, allowing you to look effortlessly stylish whilst enjoying the summer sun!

Today`s Outfit: The Sleeveless Denim Shirt

I`m starting to wonder recently if this is how summer is gonna be (cold, rainy, and cloudy) then what should I expect from this coming winter? My mind keeps making plans of moving to a tropical place, too bad is not that easy to get a job and a visa!
Yesterday we caught probably the only 5 minutes when it wasn`t raining to shoot these photos, however the light was quite bad so it doesn`t really do justice to this amazing sleeveless denim shirt from Glamorous. Not to worry though, I have plenty of outfits in mind with it.

Today`s Outfit: Bright Green


Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
(Vintage green short sleeve jumper, Asos green trousers, Seashells Vintage black blazer)

I have been craving for a very long time for a trouser suit in a bright colour but I never seem to find the right one. I would have loved if these trousers would have come with an equally bright green blazer but since that didn`t happen I chose a jumper in a similar shade so I can still somewhat achieve that monochrome look I`ve been wanting for so long, and opted for a blazer in a different colour. 
I guess my search for the perfect suit still continues...
