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 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.

DOING SUITS

DOING SUITS

Both suits from Zara

Suits are no more just a man thing. Blazer with palazzo pants, belted jackets or structured tops with skirts or shorts.. the variety  of combinations for suits are more then a few. You can have fun, play with bold colors and different fabrics .. never though about soft suits in linen? Amazing for summer nights.

 

BRANDS I LOVE

BRANDS I LOVE

HVN

Morgan heart-print silk long dress / Josephine floral-print silk long dress / Maria cherry-print cotton-blend dress / Nora floral-print silk slip dress 

Dresses inspired by vintage closets. Luxurious fabrics. Different prints, motifs and colors. Ginghams, cherries and flowers. Those are the key elements that makes HVN the brand it is. HVN is all about Harley Viera Newton: it’s owner, creator and one of the coolest women around. She lets her designs talk for her and what she loves… the outcome it’s amazing.

 

KALEOS EYEHUNTERS

Dunnage 2 / Shawer 2 / Lund 2 / Everdeen 3 

Sunglasses have always been fundamental in my every-day looks, as they can be bold and eye-catching giving to the most simple white t-shirt and jeans combination a twist. Kaleos Eyehunters has definitely a huge selection of amazing eyewear that I would buy right away. thanks to the always present and well balanced mix of design, fashion and luxury.

RIXO LONDON

Iris Mini Wrap Dress / Georgia Midi Skirt With Slits /  Twiggy Cowl Neck Mini Dress / Mila Halter Neck Bikini Top + Bora High Waisted Bikini Bottom 

Founded in 2015 by two alumni of the London College of Fashion, it reflects their deep appreciation of all the things that are vintage. It’s a brand that wants to “ shoot for the stars and has no plans of falling short “, that I quote directly from the owners. Stars, constellations and planets are also the main subjects of the ” Cosmic Costellation” collection. Smooth and classic lines define all their pieces: from dresses, skirts to blouses and swimwear … they offer the ideal vibes for this year’s summer getaways.

DANSE LENTE 

Young brick / Mia blush red brown / Mini Jhonny white blush 

Danse Lente, which means Slow Dance in French, is a handbags and small leather London based brand. Their vision is highly modern; structured bags with clear and geometrical lines. They offer a wide range of styles and colors, but their soft clear color ( together with the reds ) are the ones that immediately got my attention. 

SWIMWEAR

SWIMWEAR

Classic shapes and cuts, simple colors and styles is what I have in mind for swimwear this year. Spring is finally here and I’ve found myself wondering about putting on a bikini or a one piece and peacefully relax by the sea… that’s something that I didn’t long for that much until a few years ago. Sadly I have to wait quite a few months ( hopefully ) before I will be able to enjoy the sun during long relaxing days like the ones I am dreaming of! So I did a bit of research and found four pieces that matches my mood:

From left to right: Ephemera‘s laced-back swimsuit / Matteau‘s the Crop bikini top + the Classic bikini briefs / Solid & Striped‘s the Michelle cherry-print swimsuit / Marysia Swim’s Antibes scallop-edged bandeau bikini top Antibes swimmer-print scallop-edged bikini briefs

 

BOYY BAGS

BOYY BAGS

From top to bottom, left to right:  KARL 24 in Rose Dust, ROMEO in Toy, FRED in Sunrise and DEVON in Suede Sage.

BOYY is an international brand launched in 2006 by designers Jesse Dorsey and Wannasiri Kongman. You surely already saw this brand plenty of times, both on magazines and social media.. lots of amazing pics can be found mostly on Instagram! What gets me of all the BOYY bags is the well defined structure, the usage of different materials, such as the black suede lining that can be found in almost all their models, and also the statement frontal flap closure.

As the designer themselves say their philosophy “has always been that a women’s accessory should have a masculine feel, balancing out a woman’s femininity, sort of a yin-yang thing…” and that’s actually what makes them so cool and unique.

Lately I’ve been dreaming of adding one of them to my collection, its just so hard to choose among all the models and nuances offered!

KITTEN HEELS

KITTEN HEELS

From top to bottom: Ruched satin mules from Marco De Vincenzo / Stripes slingback from Zara / Crystal slingback from Mango 

Kitten hells can be loved or hated, there’s no in between. I have to say that, even tough iI didn’t actually consider this kind of heel in past years, I’ve found myself literally wanting to buy lots of them, they are classy but not too hard to walk in. Above I’ve selected three different pairs, from slingbacks to mules, that you can find in stores right now and that I would love to add in my closet.

Let’s chat a bit in the comment section: do you like them? do you already own a pair? and how would you wear them? Right now i’d go for a classic pair of blue jeans and white shirt …And if the weather won’t allow us to wear them barefoot, then wearing them with plain black socks or glittery socks is definitely an option!
