hat trick

Sweet Carey Mulligan (thanks Closet Fashionista for noticing my typo!) in the October issue of U.S. Vogue. Love these pictures!

Tomorrow I'm moving to my new apartment. I love the new place but hate moving (especially packing everything, it's soooo annoying). 

Have a nice weekend lovelies!

Ps. Greece was wonderful!

pure genius

I read a great article on Isabel Marant on this months UK Elle. She seems so down to earth, creative and nice person that I just had to revisit her 2010 f/w ready to wear collection. So gorgeous!

What I love most about this collection is that its so wearable, I can just imagine all the stylish girls sporting sparkling leggings, boxy big jackets, loose grey shirts and blue jean shirts this fall/winter... And oh I just loooove the lenght of the trouser/leggings, looks so fresh! 

What do you think?

But god was I tired on Monday at work...

Oh well, I was surprisingly upbeat the whole day.

making of

I love seeing what goes on behind the curtains of a fashion shoot. Zara frequently shares their photos on their official facebook page.

Few of the photos are from the summer collection (the first four to be exact). But I can't wait for the new collection to hit the shops!

PS. I have to admit I already ordered boots for the fall (and summer isn't even over yet, I know!!). But they were just what I wanted.... 

Over the knee boots, La Redoute

See you next time! xx

You who get the WhoWhatWear newsletter know this already, but I wanted to feature their trend report about grey nail polish.... What do you think? I'm totally up for it for the autumn!

Thanks for stopping by! xx

after work bargains

One of my vices is to go shopping from work, mainly cos on my way home I pass all the good shops... Today I just had to pop in Zara and did some bargain finds

Cardigan 7 euros 

Leather bag 45 euros 

So I put up an outfit for work tomorrow, just something relaxed and comfy (thank god my workplace is really laid back and don't have to wear any kind of uniform). 

Cardigan and bag Zara, shorts Gant, sandals and white top H&M
Accessories: second hand watch (and a golden necklace but couln't find it for the photo!)

What's your favourite outfit for work?

Oh well, one day I'll have that many pairs of shoes and a closet to match.
Enjoy your weekend dear reader!

new starts and buys

Silver necklace H&M, colourful necklace second hand

It's good to be back! I started this blog a year and a half ago, and while reading my older posts before writing this one I noticed that my style has changed quite a lot during this time. The basics are still there but some things are essentially different.

When I started my style was very bohemian influenced, now it's a mix between laidback jeans girl and the city girl who appreciates the classics like white shirts and tailored jackets. Two summers summers ago my go-to piece would have been a floral dress, now its been boyfriend shorts, nude heels and a stripy loose top. The two neclaces I bought this week (pictured above) capture my current style essentials pretty well: the other is chic, big and chunky, while the other is more fun, pretty and girly.

Having that said, roughly a year ago I wrote a post about my dream bag, which was (and still is) Mulberry Bayswater. I also wrote that that bag would be my first designer bag I would buy. Well that turned out to be untrue, cos here's my first buy, the LV Speedy 25.

It's "vintage" from 1995. I love it, even though I know the Monogram patterned bags are the most copied of all the designer bags... But I think it's so versatile, classic and goes with everything. Of course you are allowed to disagree!

From now on I'll be around a bit more in the blogging world... got my inspiration back!

PS. The pictures of my old posts are a bit off, that's because I changed the layout of the blog. If this is your first visit to my blog and thinking whether you like it or not, hope you don't mind!
