MONDAY – ON MY MIND

MONDAY – ON MY MIND

Khaite cotton-poplin shirt / Raye straight-leg jeans / Cult Gaia ortoiseshell acetate hoop earrings / Muuñ square leather tote / Rochas bow-appliqué velvet slides

The Ideal outfit for a Monday morning in the office, while you mind is already thinking about vacation. Light blue v neck shirt with a boxy cut and button-cuffed voluminous sleeves, which is a large trend for the AW18 season, paired with Raye’s weighty rigid white denim that are a must for every warm season.

A coffee-brown square leather tote with a detachable bottle-green pouch is perfect for keeping the things women need on a daily basis,

A nice way to complete a daily outfit is by choosing to wear this statement pair of earrings by Cult Gaia ( the brand definitely found a nice way to expand its products line ) together with vivid colored shoes, like these enchanting emerald-green velvet slides.

POSTCARD FROM SOUTHERN ITALY

POSTCARD FROM SOUTHERN ITALY

It’s already mid July, and in less than a months there will finally be summer holidays. Two free weeks in which I do see myself doing some of my favorite things: sun-bathing, enjoying the seaside, reading books ( preferably thrillers ) and surely eating well. 

The plan is still not fully down but I will surely spend some time in Otranto, that’s in the south of Italy. A magic place in which I always go back to. It has an amazingly green-blu colored sea, amazing food and the people are so nice as well. 

Tell me your plans! 

THE FLORAL ( NEVER-ENDING ) TREND

THE FLORAL ( NEVER-ENDING ) TREND

Floral patterns, floral embroideries, floral shapes. It is an ever-green that never fails to show up in each season. It’s all about embracing the joy and romance of spring, actually not just in those months but 365 days a year. Perhaps this is why the floral trend is one that just won’t go away.

The variety is huge. Printed mini-dresses like the plissé one from Zimmermann, that looks exactly like an April country side field with its little shy flowers and herbs. Or the wrap skirt from Ganni that plays with daisies, myosotis and poppies. 

One brand that’s going strong lately its Horror Vacui, a German brand based in Munchen, the capital city of Bavaria. It is inspired by vintage sleepwear and Liberty prints. Every style features thoughtful details that go from scalloped edges and delicate smocking to the intricate prints themselves. Flowers are some of the most used prints. Surely not easy-going but also surely a statement pieces that can be paired with white t-shirt and denim for every day looks.

This trend does not stop at clothing, as there’s always the entire universe of accessories. Silk scarves, purses and even earrings. You just have to choose.
