What I wore Sunday… London affair

My affair with London started more than a decade ago. I had a pleasure of getting to know the city in my early twenties, firstly as a holidaymaker and later as an exchanges student. I know that it is not a place where I could live on a daily basis but I enjoy coming back every few months to experience this cosmopolitan and fascinating city.

We have taken all the pictures for today’s post in Mayfair. It is one of the oldest and most well-known parts of the London and as I was surrounded by designer shops and boutiques it seemed like a perfect location.

London with its diversity is full of contrasts. Wealth and poverty are very close neighbours. I always felt (and still do) intimidated by opulence and luxury but somehow London takes it to another level. You can never be too overdress here… So for this afternoon outgoing I decided to wear something that will give me a confidence boost !!

This Maje dress is last season find that I have managed to get in Bicester Village. It is a very unusual print and length for me but I love it. I wanted to buy it last year, however, the price put me off number of times. I am glad that I have resisted the temptation as I manage to get it at almost 40 % in the outlet… The rest of the outfit is my staples that you have seen number of times. I am still in love with these sandals and I am determined to wear them as many ways as it is possible.

So that is what I wore Sunday !!

Life in a country

I am a city animal. I have been born and raised in a big city and I love being close to action. I cannot imagine not having restaurants, cinema and shops close to where I live. Having said all of that, I now live in a countryside. Quite a few years ago we made a conscious decision to move out of the city, closer to nature.

Initially, I wanted to show You these pictures as a What I wore Sunday post but I have change my mind considering deeper meaning of what I want to say. The main reason for the post is to motivate my readers to find balance. In life, workplace, responsibility that You take on Your shoulders. Although I still struggle from time to time to separate my life and tasks, moving closer to nature has definitely made a positive difference for me. I love the fact that when I close the door to my house I hear silence. No cars, buses, trams and all the typical noises associated with the life in a big city.

I am very lucky that we have made it work for us. I commute for work everyday but on the weekend and days off I have a chance to go for a walk and try to enjoy simpler way of living. As there is still part in me that needs the city associated guilty pleasures like eating out or shopping I love to treat myself to a trip to Manchester or London from time to time.

So whatever You enjoy in life, finding a balance between duties and pleasures is crucial. Reflecting on everyday as well as dreaming big will help to change Your reality. Can do attitude does not cost anything but will make a huge difference !
