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 !
Continuing my Italian adventure I wanted to show you the outfit I wore to dinner on the same day we visited Lucca and went to the seaside. If you are interested in that post more details and pictures are available here !!
I did not have much time to get ready so I decided to go for comfort and convenience. I picked this dress on sale from H&M and I truly cannot say enough good things about it. It fits better than it looks, the fabric feels very nice on the skin, it is a very flattering design and best of all it was only £10 !! I believe the original price is around £20 and in my opinion it is worth even more than that.
I styled it with my favourite par of heels at the minute. They are much more comfortable than they look and they add that special something to every outfit.
The restaurant we visited that evening was called Le Mura Del Cassero in Montevarchi. It is a truly modern Italian place, serving traditional dishes with a twist. The whole menu is in Italian so ordering food can be tricky if you do not speak the language !!
I hope you will like what I put together and if you are interested in what I have bought recently stay tuned as I have the haul video coming up on my channel very soon featuring this particular dress and many more items…
So that is what I wore Sunday !!

That is it for today from me… Many thanks for stopping by and please come back for more !!
I am not a party animal… I like a good night out every so often but as I love comfort and peace I would be very happy staying in instead of going out ! But over the last few weeks I have been trying to be more outgoing and sample what my neighbourhood has to offer. Few new restaurants and bars have opened and we thought it will be good to check what the fuss is all about !
I had different outfit planned but the weather in UK is very changeable and You have to be prepare to make adjustments. The wind and rain are another problem but without further delay that is what I wore !

I wanted to create relaxed yet put together look without trying too much. I love pairing simple blouses with a pair of jeans and adding heels to make it more evening appropriate. The pair of shoes presented here is a long favourite of mine. I bought them last year on sale and I can confirm it was money well-spent. They are perfect for day and night and as the heel is about 2-3 inches, they can be worn for long periods of time.
The only pop of colour (apart from my lips…) is my clutch bag. I have one more in the same style by the same designer (shown here) and I love them both. They are perfect size for Your phone and few essentials. Unfortunately, they are no longer in production and I am extremely happy that I managed to add two to my collection.
I hope You like what I put together !
If so give it thumbs up and come to visit me again…
Many thanks for stopping by.
As You know from my previous post, I had a pleasure of visiting Cambridge last weekend. It was a really good trip and we mixed pleasure with work and took some pictures for my blog.
The outfit in question was put together in reference to my Trends March 2017 blog post.
I wanted to feature both sleeve detail and logo t-shirt to show You how things can be mixed and matched. Khaki seems to be a colour of choice for this season and together with ruffles on the sleeves this jacket is a perfect combination. I bought it from Zara as it was too difficult to resist and I have no regrets. The quality of the material is exceptional and I know it will be a staple in my wardrobe for many years to come.
The t-shirt that I am wearing is from Kenzo and I got it about two years ago. I love the fabric and how durable it is. It was definitely a good investment and again no regrets.
As for the rest of the outfit.. Trousers are from Belstaff (the brand I have not tried on before). They are very thick, waxed pair of jeans with interesting cuts in all the right places. They are also surprisingly comfortable and I would happily wear them all day long. Handbag and shoes are my long-time companions. I have always wanted a pair of Alaia sandals and never in my life I expected to own a pair..
I hope You will all enjoy the pictures and get some outfit inspirations. I wished we could take the pictures on much more sunny day but as I am UK-based the weather is not always picture-friendly !
