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 !
Christmas time is a special time in my family. It is a religious celebration and it is time to spend with your nearest and dearest. I still remember that after Christmas Eve dinner me and my parents would go to church for midnight mass- something that I was looking forward more than you could imagine… Maybe it was a fact that I could stay up late or maybe it was the magic of this special period ?
Christmas gift were not as big and over the top as they are now as the focus on was on something else. My parents had limited means and I would not get more than few presents. They were always special though and I still remember most of them.
As an adult, I try to make and effort and every year I like to give something back to parents, my grandmother and my husband. But with my upbringing comes the modesty in how we celebrate. Less is more and even now, I would only buy one or two quite special gifts…
I like to dress for occasion and the outfit I am featuring today is something I would happily wear on a Christmas Day. It maybe a little bit formal, but I feel dressed appropriately. Most of the pieces have been in my possession for quite some time. The only new item is this stunning pair of shoes that I got during pre-Christmas sales. They are very statement and I hope to get the best use out of them !
So without further delay that is what I wore this Christmas Eve Sunday !
