ALEXANDER WANG

Alexander Wang Kyla sandals


What a coincidence I got my very first pair the same week Alexander Wang himself sneakily revealed a short video on Instagram about his upcoming collaboration with H&M. 

After last year's collaboration I bet this time it's even going to be more interesting to see how he is going to translate his signature style into a high street line.  

Any pieces you want look forward to? I wouldn't mind a good basic T and maybe some accessories or two...or three. Better start saving and mark the date: November 6th it will be!


Enjoy your Easter weekend!

SUMMER



Photos: Tumblr, Pinterest 

What to do when having the flu? It's been almost a week since I caught the flu/bellyache. And what better way to keep a positive spirit than already daydreaming about sunny days at the beach, watching the ocean and enjoying copious and long Greek meals with my two men. Even though I still have to wait for two months, I am already getting ready: I will resume my bikini body challenge as soon as I feel better and I already did some online shopping (oh oh did I say shopping?) in the bikini department. But more on that later. For now let the pictures speak for themselves. 


Any exciting plans for the weekend? 



Ps. for more 'Summer' inspiration head over to my Tumblr or Pinterest pages.

LEATHER AND STRIPES


Photos taken by my husband last month

Bodaskins leather jacket | Acne scarf | Armor Lux marinière |
Mango leather pants | Nike Vortex sneakers | Von Zipper  sunnies

Being a jeans kinda girl at heart, I am pretty sure sometimes things look better in leather. I already loved my new jacket, but when I finally found the perfect leather pants, it was without doubt a sure thing. So why not style all this goodness together? In this case I went for a sporty look with a classic stripe marinière, but I could easily pair it with a white blouse and heels. Oh the endless possibilities...


 Bisous, x
