I am not too keen on occasion shopping when it comes to outfits. It is easy to make a mistake when under time pressure and buy an outfit just for the sake of getting something new. Having staples that will serve more than one occasion is a key for me.
I bought this little navy dress on sample sale quite a few years ago. It is maybe more fitted than I would have liked but hopefully I can still make it work. It would be ideal for most of the formal outgoings like weddings, christenings or special birthdays and anniversaries.
I have paired it with one of my favourite pumps in my collection. Surprisingly comfortable for the heel hight, they go well with pretty much everything. The clutch bag is more of a statement item but gives something edgy to this otherwise simple outfit. I bought it about seven years ago and although I do not wear it often enough, I do not have any intention of ever parting my ways with it.
So that is what I wore one very formal Sunday !

There is a new video on my channel as of today showing you everything I have been loving in August !! I would really appreciate if you check it out…
Shopping on the high street can be a very good experience, not only because items are generally more affordable but also due to some amazing quality finds. There are a lot of pieces that are not worth your time and money but if you look a little bit deeper, you will find some treasures.
The dress shown today is from H&M and it comes from collaboration between the clothing giant and the fabric designer GP & J Baker. They are famous for their prints and with more than 100 years of tradition, the collection does not disappoint.
When I saw this dress first, I was not sure if the style was something that would suit me but when I tried it I knew instantly that I love it. Wrap dress as a style is completely new to me but with this dress being such a hit, I will shop it in the future.
The rest of the outfit is nothing that you have not seen before. My trusted pair of sandals and a cross-body bag that goes well with most of my outfits.
So that is all I wore last Sunday !

When I heard about dilapidated estate waiting to be demolished covered in street art, I knew it is a place I have to visit. I am not sure what is it about street art I like so much but I guess it must be self-expression aspect of it.
As I cannot draw and I have very little if any manual or artistic skills, I express myself through the outfits I wear. This is one is very simple and comfortable yet put together in my opinion. I bought this dress few weeks ago and I wore it non-stop. It seems to be good for casual outgoing as well as work and going out depending on the matching accessories. And as polka dot is a print that never goes out of style, I am intending to wear it season after season !
As my outfit is very monochrome (read boring for some), I decided to add a splash of colour and went for my statement red lip. It is very interesting how much confidence you can get out of the lipstick, but it works for me every time.
So that is what I wore Sunday !

Summer is made for dresses and with such a nice weather in the whole of Europe, I am taking full advantage of that situation every single day. More often that not, I stay away from vibrant colours but the dress shown today is one of the exceptions.
When I first saw it, I loved it instantly but decided against buying it due to the price. I debated for quite some time and when I eventually got it, I knew instantly that it was a very good decision.
If you follow me for a while, you may know that I like things that last. Made out of natural fabrics with maybe slightly higher price point but that will serve their purpose season after season. Despite common believe and what I may show you on my blog, label does not matter. I am very keen on supporting and discovering smaller brands with right work ethics and using responsibly sources fabrics so if you have any recommendations let me know !
Moving to the outfit shown today it is nothing new but it feels comfortable and serves the purpose. The dress combined with my favourite bag this season and a pair of black espadrilles is all I could come up with and I like it a lot…

White dress is all I want to wear in the summer. It is not particularly ground-breaking but feels comfortable and appropriate for the time of the year. Every Spring-Summer I try to add one or two new white dresses to my collection. They have to be made out of natural fabrics and be versatile enough to wear season after season.
The one featured today is from last year (but still available) and you may remember it from this post. It feels very light and so comfortable that I could wear it non-stop. I have paired with slightly more ‘edgy’ for me accessories- statement pair of sunglasses and a new bag that you may have already spotted if you follow me on Instagram.
I wanted a Cult Gaia Ark bag ever since I first saw it last year but it was completely unavailable at the time due to high demand. I debated with myself for quite a few months this year if I want to add it to my collection and I have finally decided to take a plunge.
I cannot start to tell you how much I love it ! It is worth the money and so functional and comfortable despite how it looks… I know that there is quite a few ‘inspired’ versions on the market but I personally like to give the credit to the designer or a brand that came up with the idea.
So without further delay that is what I wore one very hot Sunday !

I do not know if you like making lists but I personally do not… There are only few that I am happy to make and they are mostly travel-related. Going to Berlin, seeing Berlin Wall and getting the feel for the city was long time coming for me.
It took me by surprise how familiar Berlin felt, especially the east side where we stayed. Public transport, layout of the streets, blocks of flats reminded me of my hometown so much so that I was catching myself matching particular areas to the ones from my childhood in Poland.
Berlin Wall itself did not disappoint me and I know that I will visit it again at some point in my life. Being born in mid 80s Berlin Wall was and still is a symbol of better life and freedom, something that defines most of our pursuits.
For this What I wore Sunday I wanted to blend with the surroundings and I wanted to show you my favourite part of Berlin more that my outfit. It is very plain and minimalistic but it was perfect for the whole day of sightseeing.
Because I am showing you a lot of street art some of the images (one in particular…) maybe considered ‘inappropriate’. Please take it with a pinch of salt and enjoy the amazing East Side Gallery !

I am planning on doing a post dedicated to my ‘must see’ list of Berlin landmarks and restaurants so stay turned for that !
Despite a common belief, I am a fairly lazy dresser. I do not like to get ready for too long and I try to make quick decisions when it comes to my clothing. And this outfit is a perfect example of that attitude.
You will not believe how long I wanted this top for. When I saw it initially, it was a love at first sight. But as much as I liked to buy it, I knew that I cannot spent a fortune on a top that I would wear only a handful of times. I ended up admiring this top for about two years until I finally managed to find it on sale ! It was reduced over 70 % with only one left in my size… I knew that it was now or never !
I have built my outfit for this outgoing around this top. It is such a statement piece that you truly need very little to make it stand out. Skinny jeans, neutral bag and a pair of my favourite heels was all I could come up with and I have to say I am quite happy with the end result.
That is what I wore (going out) Sunday !
