The Perfect Pompom Toque

Hello, my darlings 😍. It was a very chilly weekend in Dallas and that’s why I was so exited to get my fabulous pompom toques from Canadian brand @Lindoffur. I was looking for my perfect winter hat forever… No, seriously, F-O-R-E-V-E-R, and I genuinely hated all of them! I thought I’m just not a “toque person”. Girl, I was wrong! If you are still searching for a fabulous perfect winter hat, please check them out. Not only they have a fantastic selection of colors, styles and pompom sizes, but you can design your own! And because I’ve got 3 (thank you again, lovely ladies from @Lindoffur), I actually ended up with 9 hats, because you can snap off and snap on any pompom from any other toque if you want it to match your current outfit perfectly. It’s simply genius. Btw, it’s very warm and made from 100 % Merino wool (which is very hard to find in stores). In general, that’s the best pompom beanie you can find IMO. Totally recommend and have a bit of obsession, and you will probably see many other pictures of me wearing my beautiful new toques 💕😉👍. In fact, I promise to post more of them 🤣. Awesome, stylish, fabulous! Please let me know, if you love wearing toques or if you have trouble to find the perfect one. Have a fantastic day, loves 😍😍😍
PS. Lindof.com has a 40% off until end of the month. Fantastic deal! 🤩👍

iHome Aquio Bluetooth Speaker and Hydration Bottle

As some of you might know already, I can’t imagine my life without gym or some outdoor activities.  And I found a perfect addition to make my routines more fun. I finally got an ultimate accessory for any outdoor enthusiast. The 16oz double-walled stainless-steel bottle perfectly holds your liquids cool,  while the modular detachable 5-watt Bluetooth speaker lets you listen to music anywhere. And you can either twist it off or use it right on the bottle. When connected to your smartphone, the removable speaker also doubles as a speakerphone.  The iP67 rated  water-  and sand-proof speaker also makes it an awesome beach bag addition and actually sounds quite good with a 360 degree throw. It has digital echo cancellation for speakerphone use and provides audio caller ID… yep, you can talk to your water bottle while taking a long walk 😉👍😄. Btw, battery life is up to 6 hours and is fully rechargeable.

Thanks to @aquiobottles I now can stay cool and listen to my favorite music everywhere.  Also wouldn’t this make a great gift for someone who loves to be outdoor, work in the garden or just sing in the shower?😉👍.  Absolutely love it! Check @aquiobottles and get 25% off with the code Gift25 during the holiday 2018 season! Have a fantastic week ahead and #hydrateyoursoul 👍😍❤️

Preview of the Cruise 2019 Collection at Dior

It was a fabulous presentation of the Cruise 2019 Collection at Dior Dallas last night. Awesome service as usual and many very delicious eye candies. I found something special for my Christmas wish list 😉🥂🎁. Here is a little side story… I know it might sounds strange, but I was terrified to go to that kind of stores at the beginning. It felt like I am in a wrong place at the wrong time, even though I knew exactly what I wanted and saved hard to get that particular thing. I wasn’t enjoying the process and wanted it to end as quickly as possible. It’s not a luck of confidence that bothered me, but the “horror” of being judged. Am I good enough for this brand? Am I dressed ok for the occasion? What can I say.., I missed so much of fun!!! Please, if you want to go to one of the high-fashion stores, just go and enjoy it! Bring a friend, have a great time, play in a fabulous dressing room. Just feel free, because not only rich and famous can afford to have a blast 😉. And if you did it or planning to do, please let me know how was your experience? Btw, if you need a company or suggestion, I am always here for you 😊! Peace!

Fall 2018’s Biggest Trend – Animal Print

Girls, it’s back! An animal print, that some of fashionistas already considering as a neutral,  is everywhere. I am sure, you still have some version of it in your wardrobe and now it’s the time to rock it!  The most trendy are different kinds of snake skin prints in both, natural and very bold (like red) colors and a very eye catching zebra print. As good as it looks on other people, I wouldn’t personally pick it up for myself. The leopard print on the other hand, had always intrigued me. You know, it gives you that vibe, when you feel more confident and maybe even irresistible, if you know what I mean ;-).   This chiffon-like blouse is from Forever 21  and I got it from Poshmark for couple of dollars. There is however  a  Saint Laurent Blouse that will cost you a bit in case you want to invest in it :-).  As always, I am combining high street with some high fashion. My leather pants are from Alice and Olivia and they are the staple in my fall/winter wardrobe.  I’m sure you will see them a lot this upcoming season.  I also added to this look my Chanel Boy bag and Gucci belt, they go with everything! My shoes are the most fabulous Chanel slingback dupe from DSW. You can find  direct link in “shop the look” section down below if you are interested.  They are gorgeous and very similar looking. If you like the appearance, but hate the price on the original ones, these might be for you. I personally love them so much, that already thinking about buying a pair of Chanel ones, because I am absolutely sure i will get a lot of wear from them. But that’s on my Dream Wish List ;-). I hope you have one too, because you’ll be surprise at how quickly the Universe will move with you once you have decided.

Gucci Ace Sneakers.

I know, I know, I’m feeling that I am too late on this and Gucci Ace Sneakers are almost tacky  at this point,  but…   I also have a feeling  that these beauties are here to stay for a long time.  I wanted to give them a try. Because I am a sneaker girl in general, and have many different pairs of simple  white kicks, that I wear non-stop,  decision about this gorgeous, but pricey pair was somehow easy to make for me.  I ignored them for the longest time possible, but then I stopped by a local Gucci store and tried them on just out of curiosity. I wanted to know, what’s about them that makes  every fashion heart beat faster? I already knew,  sometimes curiosity might be a bad thing for my bank account ;-).  And  this was exactly the case. Not only they are very beautiful with many designs to choose from, but they are also so comfortable.., I fell in love right there. Side note: if you want to buy them online, size down at least one size.  I actually sized down one and a half size. Usually 38.5 in Italian shoes, I got this pair in 37. Mine are in the simplest, but already classic design with the bee embroidery.  This gorgeous all leather, very lightweight  pair of shoes became my instant favorite for the Month of July.  I’m making an excuse to wear them almost with everything in my summer wardrobe.  Therefore for me personally they were worth buying.  Because they are kind of a statement shoe, I like to keep everything else in my look very clean and simple. Here I am styling them with my  H&M  black t-shirt and Diane von Furstenberg White Shorts.  I am also wearing my  old Falabela  mini  Rucksack from Stella Mccartney and a Gucci Belt.  Just add some cool pair of shades and your sporty chic weekend look is ready.

 

It is not a secret that the Gucci Ace Sneakers  are an investment piece. If you like the look, but don’t want to spend too much on these, I found couple of great affordable options for you below. Much love. Peace.

My Sale Picks from Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The best sale of the year is finally here! As many of you know, this is the ultimate opportunity to get luxury labels at more affordable prices. I usually shop Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for timeless favorites (like leather jackets, coats and more pricey shoes), or statement pieces, if I don’t wanna spend the full price on trendy things.  This sale is perfect for that. Note, this is not a summer clearance sale. This sale is your opportunity to buy current pieces from the new upcoming F/W 2018 season for super-sale price, that will go up  after the sale ends..  And that makes this event so exiting as Christmas in July ;-).  If you like my style and trust my choices, I already did a huge work picking the best (IMO) items for you, that might sell out super quickly.

Nordstrom cardmembers?  Get an early access from July 12, while public access begins July 20 and ends August 5.

Under Italian Sun. Amalfi Vacation.

This time our destination is the gorgeous town of Amalfi . We decided to try on the local life and rented a villa with the most picturesque view.  I can’t describe all the sunsets we were able to catch, so beautiful and breathtaking . We found a pathway that goes all the way from the villa to the town center and every turn of that walk views are breathtaking. The whole town is cozy and while slightly touristy, it managed to keep its charm.

Another fabulous day brought us to these Ancient Greek Temples. Paestum is an often overlooked archaeological site in the southern Amalfi Coast. To say it’s breathtaking isn’t an overstatement. Paestum is located just south of Salerno, and it easy to get to by car. The Greek temples are so massive, and in such good condition, it’s staggering to know how old they are (dating from about 600 to 450 BC) and that they’re still standing.
It was an unexpectedly peaceful site to visit. There were very few tourists around, and we truly felt as though we had the place to ourselves. We will never forget this incredible experience!

‘Come back to Sorrento’ is on my mind when I look back at our pictures from Sorrento. This citrus-blossom-scented, southern-Italian town celebrated for millennia. Sorrento is a picturesque place with a spectacular cliff-top setting facing Mount Vesuvius across the glittering Bay of Naples. It’s the place where locals go when Amalfi Coast starts getting busy with tourists. Fantastic restaurants, shops selling lemon-themed souvenirs and perfect beaches – everything around just calls to relax and have a lazy day. And that’s exactly what we did with a bit of shopping and a lot of eating ;-))). Felt in love with this town.

We decided that the gorgeous Amalfi coast line has to be experienced from the water. So we caught the boat from Amalfi to Positano and enjoyed a spectacular views all the way to our destination. It was one of the highlights of our trip and we truly had fun exploring and getting lost in this ritzy “one-street” town.  Btw, famous Lemon Sherbet is a must to taste! Delicious.

Vacations can’t last forever and our last day in Ravello was very sweet with a bit of lemon 🍋in it . We walked around Villa Rufolo for hours, had some coffee at the cutest little restaurant at the Piazza Duomo before going back to Amalfi.
Our trip was amazing and we are so happy that we were able to share this precious experience with the most important people in our lives – our lovely parents. Amalfi will be always in our hearts 💕.

One short walk trough the Rome before heading home… Arrivederci, Italia 🇮🇹😘😍, hope to see you again soon…

WHAT I’M WEARING

Gucci Vibes

Hello, my darlings, here is another style tip for you to make your outfit look more… let’s say “upscale” or “fashionable”.  With all these Gucci Vibes going around for the past couple of years, you just can’t ignore it anymore. We love crazy stripes,  bold colors and statement details that brand has to offer. The only thing is not all of us can spend a small fortune for a top or pair of shoes.  And you don’t have to. Here is the simple way to achieve this desirable Gucci look without breaking your bank account.

We all have a simple (or maybe not that simple) white shirt or blouse. If not, check out links down below for some options.  The secret is this beautifully done striped bow tie. The easiest way is tying a bow  from striped ribbon, that you can find at any craft store. If you are a DIY girl, it can be a fun and very cute project (or an awesome gift idea) for you and your girlfriends. Add some kind of brooch, pin crystals, even bee decorations and you have your own, original “designer inspired” jewel, that you can use on many different occasions.  Etsy also have some fabulous styles to offer. Linking couple of them as well.

Now you can style it as you desire. I am wearing my old Zara navy blue sailor shorts with golden accents and red heels from Prada.  Again, there are some options for you, feel free to check it out.

Last but not least trow on a fabulous pair of black shades  and you are good to go. @foster_grant_sunglasses kindly sent me a small collection of great shades  and let me tell you, I was really surprised how chic,  glamorous but really affordable they are.  Check them out if you love sunglasses as much as I do.
