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 !

I had a pleasure of spending last weekend in Amsterdam and I will be more than happy to share details of our trip in the coming posts. I loved every single minute of our adventure and I cannot imagine more picturesque city to travel to…
The photos for today’s post were taken in Room Mate Aitana Hotel which I would highly recommend for its design, location and service. I also loved the big windows, very modern and clean deco as well as the view. It is a well-priced option if you want to stay central in comparison to other hotels.
As for the outfit itself, I went for a very minimalistic and slightly masculine look. Checked blazer, white t-shirt and skinny pair of jeans. I added my beloved bag and a statement pair of heels that in my opinion add a feminine touch to the look.
I am surprised myself how much I like what I wore. It is mainly due to the fact that I am not a blazer person. I had few in the past but always felt that they were too structured and not flattering on my body… Somehow this one is different. Much more loose-fitting, without shoulder pads, cut properly. The minute I have tried it on, I knew I would wear it non-stop !
So without further delay that is what I wore in Amsterdam !
Thank you so much for stopping by and for checking out what I have been up to !
Out of all the UK cities, I think I visit York the most. There are many reasons for that but if I was to pick one it would be due to its charm and beauty. I love the tiny, cobbled streets and lots of boutique cafes and shops including my favourite brands like Kiehl’s, Jo Malone, Whistles or Mulberry.
We visited York during Bank Holiday weekend last week and it was full of people. The weather was fabulous and we decided to do exact opposite and rather than going into town, head to the canal and observe life from the distance. We had some luck as the sun came out and we managed to take these pictures, which are probably one of my favourites ever.
You may remember that I already wore this dress, quite some time ago when I was just starting my blogging adventure (check it out here). It is much more feminine and delicate that I would normally go for but somehow I like it like that. I pair it with my trusty bag that has been my favourite for some time now and really old espadrilles that I got in Spain about six years ago.
Without further delay that is what I wore that Sunday…
