POSTCARD FROM PORTMEIRION

A few weeks ago I went on a quick road trip to Wales and saw one of the most beautiful places in UK! Who would have thought that only 1,5 hr away there is a place where I can feel like I’m in Italy!? A small man made village called Portmeirion is a well hidden gem, and I can recommend it to everyone as a must see.
For a start, it’s a complete village of architecturally amazing buildings set on its own private peninsula overlooking sand, sea and mountain. It was the creation of iconoclast and architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, who populated his make-believe village with Italianate, oriental and Tudor-style buildings. Featuring bright Mediterranean inspired colours and close proximity to the seaside, this quirky little place has attracted many film makers.

Owned by a charitable trust it is open year round with cafes, shops, hotels, and self catered cottages. Go and see the amazing architectural surrealism of Portmeirion in all its glory during summer when it’s beautiful gardens are blooming with flowers and tropical plants. It is definitely my favourite place so far for my blog’s photo-shoots. The proximity of Deudraeth Castle makes it even more special.

About the dress…it looks pretty much like the one from Alberta Ferretti, but …it’s not ;) I couldn’t get hold of the original one so I gave in to temptation and ordered a look-a-like from a clothing website that is very popular with fashion bloggers. Being sceptical that the quality will be poor I didn’t have high expectations. But…. I was wrong and it actually came out pretty good for what you pay. I’m well pleased with it , what do you think?

LITTLE PINK DRESS

Weather has been beautiful recently, filled up with sun and warm temperatures. Perfect day to wear a little summery dress for a stroll down to town. A simple but effective casual chic outfit.
Let's hope for more sunny days like this as it puts a smile on everyone's faces, especially people in England :)

NEON SUMMER

We all know that feeling when you're all dressed up ready to go out and … it starts to rain and the weather ruins everything. That’s how I felt when I went to shoot these photos. Thankfully it was only a quick shower and I didn’t get that wet. Actually I even had a bit of fun running around the park and trying to hide under the trees. Eventually the sun came out and the rest of the day allowed us to finish the photos.  

Until a few years ago, neon colours were for a specific group of people who were not afraid to experiment with their image. However, those times are long gone and neon is now part of every woman's wardrobe who follows fashion trends.  Whether it is one item or a whole collection, it’s a must have especially for this summer.  

Mixing neon with more neutral or basic colours (beige, grey, nude, white) is an easy way to incorporate these bright hues in your outfits. It’s hard to make a mistake in this situation! They can spice up your summer and make you as bright as the sun, without having to completely change your closet. So...Go neon. Go Bright. Go Happy!

NEW IN

I’ve seen these beauties few weeks ago in a Flannels store and couldn’t leave the shop without them ;) I love every detail from the minimal stitching due to an intricate three-step shaping technique to the elegantly curved slim heel. Gucci's polished-leather booties are a testament to the label's exquisite craftsmanship.  A simple masterpiece made for the modern fashionista who loves excitement and luxury. These shoes will change any outfit into a dangerous look and at the same time seductive like a special female agent on duty.

Remember my ladies that good shoes are effortless, they make-up as much as 50% of your total look  and when you match them with the right clothes – you can reach your 100% score :) 
Do you agree with me?

CORAL CRUSH

As I am currently away with limited access to internet I will still try my best to keep posting as much as I can.

 If you’re into trying a hot new hue for the warmer temperatures you should definitely try coral, which from tropical hues of watermelon to the rich citrus of orange makes it the colour of summer.
  Coral has paved the way in all segments of apparel, making it one of the most sought-after shades of the season that adds life to a boring look instantly . This colour not only contrasts well with lighter shades but also looks spectacular if paired with darker, deeper hues. I managed to find a top in the exact colour as my shoes which I paired up here with light grey French connection skirt.
  If you feel like the colour may be too much for you, then try smaller coral accents like nail polish and lipstick that are great for more basic outfits or maybe a simple scarf as an accent to update your wardrobe?
