I rarely do romantic outfits mainly because I prefer more masculine clothing and that style comes much more naturally to me. But somehow I felt like wearing something different for this outgoing. Simple dress although black with floral print paired with my favourite high-heeled boots was a match made in heaven.
To stay true to myself, I added this military-style coat that is probably my most loved and most worn high-street purchase that I have ever made. I bought it well over a year ago and wore it on repeat since (more outfit ideas featuring this particular coat available here and here).
Classic Chanel flap bag is always a good idea and although I do not feature this bag a lot on my blog, it was for a very long time my biggest purchase ever. As it is a seasonal bag, I did manage to stay within my financial boundaries but the decision to pull the trigger and buy it, was not an easy one. Investing you hard-earned cash in accessories and shoes can be daunting and I will do my best to feature some of my suggestions in the coming posts !
Starting new year, month or week gives me the sense of opportunity to reflect and think about where I am heading. This year I really took time to stop for a minute and try to put my priorities right. What is important to me and what matters most… I really hope that this reflection will accompany me for the rest of the year and I would hope to share my findings with you in the near future…
Pictures for today’s post were taken at the end of last year on one of the festive days. Streets were empty and I had a chance to put on an outfit I wanted to try for quite some time now. I was very fortunate to receive these over the knee boots as a Christmas present and they are everything and more of what I hoped for. Very high and flattering with the beautiful finish and to top it all up comfortable enough to wear them all day long.
I have paired them with one of my favourite dresses and a coat that have been in my possession for well over five years now. Every time I wear it, somebody will always comment on it and as it was a sale purchase, I can definitely say it was a money well spent !
So without further delay that is what I wore that Sunday !
I am very fortunate to live in the countryside and be surrounded by a large number of beautiful manor houses with very rich history. As a result, every so often we like to go somewhere new and explore… This particular Sunday we went to Brodsworth Hall and Gardens which dates back to 1860s.
It is known for being one of the most complete examples of Victorian country houses in the whole of England. As much as I liked the house, I have to say it needs extensive renovations. They are costly and only so much can be done at one time. On the other hand, the grounds were spectacular. Everything is so well-kept, it was a true pleasure to take a walk and admire the beautifully manicured lawns and seasonal plants.
For this outgoing I decided to wear my new dress I got few weeks ago. It is made from beautiful and delicate fabric in very pale shade of blue. I do not have anything else like this in my wardrobe and when I saw it, I knew it was a winner.
As the summer in UK is coming to an end very soon, I pair the dress with this distressed leather jacket for a little bit of contrast and the pair of sandals I simply adore. I like the look I have put together and I hope you will like it too !!
As much as love traveling, coming back home after a holiday is always a relief for me. I cannot wait to sleep in my own bed and just be at home for a couple of days. That need for rest and isolation is a very short one as after about a week or so I cannot resist to plan our next vacation…
The outfit I am showing you today is a very casual one, with a nice pair of heels and a designer clutch bag to add that more luxury feel. Everything I am wearing today, makes me feel comfortable and I love each and every one of these pieces.
The only new thing featured here is this leather jacket by AllSaints that I got during my recent visit to Bicester Village. It was originally retailing for over £300 and I have managed to get it for under £150 !! I am not sure if that is a rule with all the leather jacket, but most AllSaints jackets run big to size so if you are thinking of getting one, my advise would be to definitely size down…
Leather jacket is one of those transitional pieces that will take through all seasons. You can pair it with the summer dress and heels for more romantic vibe or pair of trainers and jeans for a dress down look. If you interested in more styling ideas, I would recommend to check out this post here.
All of the pictures taken for today’s post are from the nearby village which I really like. It is quintessential British and has that amazing feel about it. Small shop, post office, nice pub and a hairdresser that is all that is needed…
So without further delay… that is what I wore Sunday !

I am not a romantic person and my idea of the date night is staying at home and watching House of Cards with a cup of earl grey. However, from time to time it is nice to make an effort and dress in a more feminine way. I had a pleasure of staying overnight in Lincoln this weekend as a part of a treasure hunt (I will keep You updated on that..) and we decided to spend the evening in town.
I tried to keep my romantic spirit going by putting on this dress but wanted to add a twist with a military style coat. The dress is my newest purchase from Topshop– very delicate piece that will see You through the wedding season as well as those special occasions date nights.. The coat is a real treasure from Zara that looks like a million dollars, worth every penny I paid for it..
My shoes and handbag have been staple pieces in my wardrobe for some time. I got my handbag as a wedding gift from my awesome husband and shoes were the sale purchase. By creating this look I wanted to prove that high street has as much to offer as designers. The pieces can be equally beautiful and well-made. What matters is the quality of the material and how versatile they are.
I hope You will like what I put together.. please let me know !!
