THE POLKA DOTS

THE POLKA DOTS

Blouse from Mango / Denim skirt from Monki / Bag from Mango / Sunglasses from Zara

After a long work week, having some time off lazely wandering through Milano is definitely something I need. Hot days means we can start to wear summerish looks combined with bare legs, like the one you can see in the pictures.

As said from Marc Jacobs ” There is never a wrong time for a polka dot “. He’s right, it is an evergreen that can never go wrong or become boring. It just gives you a retro vibe, like you’ve direclty come from the amazing 50’s. Micro or macro, colorful or mixed with different textures, designers usually go crazy. Look at Balenciaga or Blumarine with its polka dots and lace dresses, or even Carolina Herrera with teeny tiny white dots on amazing purple fabrics…and that’s just to name a few.  It can not even be considered as a trend, as it comes back every year in different shapes and forms but always about dots we are talking about. One of my faves, like in the blouse I wore, is polka dots in black & white. Mostly paired with denim in all different nuances.

 

 

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!

SPRING VIBES WITH GANNI

SPRING VIBES WITH GANNI

Harley Crepe Wrap Dress / Lilou Shoes / May Sunglasses / Joycedale Shirt / Harway T-shirt, Happy Endings / Dubois Polo Pants & Dubois Polo Blouse / Classon Embroidery Ankle Socks, Banana / Orsay Purse

Easy-to-wear pieces that can be worn in every single occasion is what the Copenhagen based company Ganni offers. Founded in 2000 and run by Ditte and Nicolaj Reffstrup, it is absolutely one of my fave brands: from their dresses to trousers and accessories they always give cool pieces with a twist of Scandinavian vibes.

Todays is again not a so sunny day, so here I am dreaming about wearing all of these pieces that are mostly from their new S/S 18 collection. As you can see floral patterns and bold colors are surely a must for the months ahead of us. The wrap dress is effortlessly chic thanks to its design and details such as the concealed waist belt and the little black line on the sleeves. Keeping up with the flower power, I opted for the Joycedale Shirt in this light blue tone that screams spring everywhere… and again, I love the details! Such as the pocket on the chest and the hidden buttons. Last but not least, the little bucket got immediately my attention!

Ganni is really known for its statement t-shirts, such as their banana one, and between their new ones the Happy Endings is definitely  the one I would buy first both for its colors and the font used. Moving on to the shoes and socks… they can may be a nice combo together too, sometimes is nice to be a little bold with colors and patterns!
Last but not least, the pink items! I am a sunglasses lover, in every shapes and colors… this acetate pair is so cute. The Dubois Polo  Blouse outfit is ideal for a cool day off, either paired with pink shoes like in the picture above or even just with black or white sneakers.
