What I wore Sunday…taking some time for myself

March is the most difficult month for me. It is not really winter anymore but not quite spring yet. I am not really sure what to wear and if I am ‘allowed’ to start wearing my favourite ballerina style flats…

I have been lacking energy lately. Not really sure if this is related to time of the year but I seem to lost my mojo. So in attempt to get it back, I am sharing an outfit that I truly wore this Sunday !

I paired my chunky white knit from few seasons ago with a new to me style of jeans that everyone seem to go crazy about- straight with cropped leg. They are made from ‘proper’ denim without a single percentage of stretch in them. Finished off with my latest coat addition (first seen here), pair of white sneakers that I live in and probably my favourite designer handbag. Perfect shade of grey makes it so wearable and easy to pair with most of my outfits.

Enjoy my usual what I wore Sunday !

Best luxury buys of 2017

My inability to compromise often gets me in trouble, especially when incomes to shopping. When I see something I really like, made out of incredible fabric with huge attention to detail, I find it incredibly difficult to substitute or leave behind.

Having said that I have to admit that majority of my more expensive buys is very well-thought through. I do not impulse buy much as I have huge respect towards mine and my husband’s hard work and everyday efforts. I like for my purchases to be of good quality but most importantly they must be needed and serving the purpose.

I had a good look at everything I bought in 2017 and have shortlisted all the pieces featured below as my best buys. Some are from premium high-street some from big designer labels but you have for sure seen them on this blog before.

So let’s begin…

Accessories:

  • Dior So Real Sunglasses (similar)

I love wearing sunglasses. They instantly elevate the whole look and add that special something to how I feel. These were on a pricy side but in my opinion are worth the money. I have been wearing them on repeat and planning on doing the same this year.

Panama style white hat is in my opinion a must in every wardrobe. I got mine at the end of June and have been loving it. As you may have noticed I like to wear a hat from time to time and this one is just perfect.

I got this scarf at the end of the year and although I have not featured it a great deal on this blog, I promised you that I have been wearing it all the time. It is of exceptional quality and having had some many high-street equivalents in the past, I can honestly say it is worth the splurge !

Shoes:

  • Gianvito Rossi Plexi Pumps (similar)

I got this pair on sale (with over 50% off) after debating for a very long time if I should buy them or not. They are very flattering, I really like the colour combination, they are easy to look after and they make me feel very put together !

Ps. They look more uncomfortable than they are… I promise !

  • Gianvito Rossi Portofino Sandals (similar in suede)

There are no words to describe how much I love this pair… They are by far one the most comfortable shoes I have, being one of the most flattering at the same time. I would love to add another pair in different colour to my collection this year but only time will tell if that happens !

Another pair that win on the comfort front for me. They are not to everyone’s taste but I personally find them extremely easy to style, flattering and versatile so much so that you are probably fed up of seeing them on this blog !

Handbags:

I got this bag as a Christmas present back in 2016 nad although I had some initial problems with the strap and I ended up exchanging the original bag I know it was worth the effort. This bag is indestructible and perfect for work. I love everything about it and would recommend it without the slightest doubt.

This is without the slightest hesitation my most used bag of 2017. I bought it back in March and have been loving it ever since. It is perfect for day and night, the colour is very versatile but the biggest surprise for me was how comfortable the strap is ! Worth the investment and I will continue to use it in 2018 !

Clothing:

  • AllSaints Leather Jacket (similar)

This jacket is one of the best value for money items I got all year. I have managed to secure it with a massive 50% discount but to tell you the truth it is worth full price. The fit and the quality of the leather is exceptional. My only tip if you want to give it a go would be to downsize as like with all the leather items the jacket will stretch !

Denim shirt seems like a must in most closets and this one is an excellent choice. It is the best quality fabric and the fit is very flattering ! Every time I wear it, somebody will comment on how much they like it and I understand why…

I hope you have enjoyed my shortlist and I have inspired you to make your own… It really opens the eyes of what is worth spending your money on and what you can give it a miss !

I will be publishing a video, going in more details on why I have chosen the items I did so make sure you subscribe to my channel for more !

Thank you very much for stopping by !

May

Months are flying and without even realising we are approaching summer time… I love all seasons but summer has something very special about is. That more relaxed vibe, less layers and sun kiss skin. Today I want to share with you what I have been up to last month and maybe show you some pictures I have not featured on this blog before.

May has been a very busy month for me work wise and I had not had a chance to travel much. Few day trips that is all what we had time for… Maybe June will be more generous when it comes to free time ?

What I wore Sunday… music festival !!

As promised the details of what I wore to the Radio 1 Big Weekend are here ! I decided to go for a very casual outfit with simple colour way and the one I would feel comfortable in. Both my denim shirt and the sneakers are fairly new purchase but the shorts I had in my wardrobe for absolute ages.

When I got them about seven years ago (time flies… ) I felt they were too short and I did not feel confident wearing them. Over time I decided I like the way they look on me and stop caring about every little detail that is bothering me !

I wanted denim on denim look so I decided to team darker shorts with lighter shirt. I bought this shirt few weeks ago and I have been wearing it non-stop. The quality of the material and the finish is really good and it is by Madewell. I have been looking on their clothing before but I never decided to take the plunge. I like the simplicity and the price which is more than high street but the quality and the finish is better.

The rest of the outfit is consists of sneakers (the most comfortable pair I have recently bought) and my trusty sunglasses.

All the pictures presented here were taken before the festival on deserted runway (!!) located very close to were I live. I love that area and I will try to take more pictures there…
