Out of all the places we have visited, without a doubt in my mind, Italy has had the best merchandise to buy when it comes to souvenirs and not only. With a wide variety of artists and things Italy is famous for, there's something for everyone to take home, as a small part of the country.
On our travels, I tried to buy a piece of jewelry from each country or even city we visited, as a way to memorize them. I ensured that every piece was made, at the very least in the country we were visiting, to make it authentic. We avoided many pretty souvenirs and things for the simple fact that...
While we were shooting the photos for this post, my husband was feeling creative. During the time I was admiring the ocean (nope, it's not all about work), he was taking photos of me through whatever objects he found. It was completely candid at first, until I noticed and decided to play in front of the camera, by allowing the wind to do its thing with my hat.
You see, my husband loves to experiment with his photographs, and when in a creative mood, he comes up with his own ideas of how to take photos. Maybe it’s not anything new, but he likes to be unique, in his own terms and do what he can think. I can’t say I always love what he comes up with, but I actually wanted to share these photos. So enjoy below and let me know if you like them.
Yes, the animal prints have made a huge comeback this year, and they are especially popular this fall season but I still love my florals. I firmly believe florals will never go out of style. Since animal prints are usually quite bold, florals are a more subtle
(or not if you go big), print that can be worn during any season.
To transition my style into fall, I choose florals in colors like cream, light browns, rust/burnt orange.
This summer has been keeping us all on our toes with these heat waves taking over a good part of the world. We have been lucky to have a break from our intense #europeanadventure (follow me on Instagram stories where I share what we've been busying ourselves with during this break) and so, were able to avoid the heat for the most part. But on the days when "hiding" from the heat is not an option, I, like everyone else think of what to wear so I look good but also, feel comfortable.
This is where flowy dresses come in.
Every woman should have a cami shirt/blouse in her wardrobe. There is something very delicate and versatile about a beautiful cami that instantly creates an effortless look.
Either to wear it under a suit, a blazer or cardigan, under a sheer top or even underneath a sweater for added layers/warmth in cooler weather. A beautiful cami can also be the perfect pairing on its own for skirts or pants and even jeans.
This spring in San Diego has been like no other so far. Everywhere you turn, there's flowers and green. It's a sure feast for the eyes as we're finally enjoying the results of the stormy winter days we've had, so this is not the time to spend it inside. We've been visiting our favorite beaches or places by the beach one last time before we leave California. I mentioned here that we'd be leaving in a few months and the time is coming to a close. But I'll share about that another day. Today I want to share another easy spring look - spring is here or just around the corner and you need to be ready.
I have three obsessions when it comes to my style: stripes, blue and white and eyelets. I don't know where these obsessions came from, but I find these details flattering and I'm instantly drawn to them. You bet that when I find all the three in one item, I will add it to my closet. This was the case with this eyelet top I found a while ago that is perfect for the spring or summer season.
In case I haven't mentioned it before, spring is my favorite season. I love the awakening nature, the sunny, warm days, the blooms and the freshness all around. Spring always makes me think of new beginnings and I always crave changes during this season. The change is coming as I have written before, and I am getting more excited and scared by the day. Yet I am fully embracing this next chapter in our lives, as it's time to leave our comfort zone and truly start living.
How does one dress for constant rainy and chilly weather? You pull out a trench coat of course!
Between us moving into a hotel and the cold, dressing up, or putting effort into my outfits has been a struggle. I have been living in a sweater, jeans, a scarf and booties lately. Of course this is also due to the limited closet space and clothes we have now.
I obviously did not plan my packing too well, since I ended up at the hotel with the clothes I wear for work, sweaters, and a few other random blouses, dresses, jeans and some basics.
The holidays are about traditions. And, like it or not, nothing is more traditional than wearing the classic red on Christmas. While I was planning on steering clear of this color this year, I ended up embracing it fully, as you see, to get in the holiday spirit. It might be looking like this in SoCal but Christmas is finally here!
I'm wishing you a magical day, surrounded by the people you love the most. May you receive all the presents and love you've been dreaming about.
From my family to yours, have a very Merry Christmas!
