The best autumn colour or some yellow inspiration.

When it’s grey and dull outside, when it’s rainy and you don’t want to go outside (but of course you have to), when nothing brings you joy but watching a movie wrapped in a quilt and drinking hot chocolate, give a chance to YELLOW! Nothing cheers me up like a bright pop of colour in a daily outfit. It’s quiet disappointing that the majority of the people choose dark colours for this dark season.  So why not to use some ideas from street style photos or even from the past:)

Bits of Paris

I completely realise that coming to a new place as a tourist and living there is absolutely different thing and leaves different impression. As a tourist you usually don’t notice all the negative sides. But to me it seems that Paris doesn’t have any minuses. How is it even possible not to love this city??? City which inspires you with it’s every building, every corner.  Vintage shops, flower markets, small cafes, art places, fountains, squares…everything has it’s own unique Parisian charm. And people….people in Paris are without any doubt the most stylish individuals I’ve ever seen. Being effortlessly chic without stylists and spending hours choosing your outfit is a challenge, but Parisians definitely succeed!!!

What can I say, I love Paris!!!!!!

October inspiration. Dark side.

I’m usually kind of positive person trying to surround myself with cute little things and bright colours.But lately (I blame it on Halloween) I’m only inspired by dark colours, black& photos, our dark alter egos and dark hidden dreams, tribal make-up and black feathers accessories, Dolce&Gabbana black lace dresses and Alexander McQueen masterpieces, crowns and queens…. I hope it’s just Halloween:)

Paris diaries. First impression.

So apparently dreams do come true! As some of you know I’ve been dreaming to go to France for ages!!! But it all seemed so unreal ( as I live in another part of the world ). But this year I decided to work hard to make it come true. And here we are: I spend almost 10 amazing days in France!

I heard a lot of different opinions about Paris but in reality it appeared to be even better than in my dreams. I was super lucky to experience a great weather with amazingly blue sky! I stayed with my friends and had a chance to live a real French life for a couple of days:)) To me Paris became a city of very stylish people, amazing food ( oh, those fresh croissants in the mornings!!!), breathtaking architecture, romance and art! Paris is a city where people LIVE and enjoy their lives, they don’t seem to hurry. I realised I could spend the whole day just walking around Paris without knowing where to go and just ENJOY!!! Will tell you more details in the next post.

Don’t be afraid to dream and always go towards your dreams!

Dreamy Paris outfit

I dreamed about this day for so long: I’m exiting airport in Paris and here it is  – city of my dreams. I imagined the feeling when I see it for the first time, I imagined the weather, people, buildings, I even imagined how it is going to smell and of course what I’m going to wear. So I created this perfect outfit for autumn Paris: comfy, easy but yet sophisticated. And here we are: boyfriend jeans, striped top, comfy cardigan, loafers and bucket bag.

It didn’t really happen how I imagined. You know what…it was even better. But it is a story for another post or even two:)
