In love with Maastricht



This is another kind of post from me, yes, without outfit. 
I love photography and I would like to share with you my photo travel diary from Maastricht. 

Last Friday I got there so early that the city was basically still sleeping. All the bars were closed, the sun was coming out and illuminated the streets with warm light. It was the perfect moment for taking some pictures. As the time was passing more and more people appeared on their bicycle going to work or school. 
I love how much dutch people are attached to their bikes: you can see them wearing suit, skirts, heels and flats while typing an sms with one hand and navigating the bike with the other one. 
If someone told me to list 5 things I like about Netherlands it would be: red bricks, bicycles, goffre, cafés and they speak perfect english. 

Which city do you suggest me to visit the next time I go to NL? 

What do you think about this post, shall I do it more often?

Backstage

Today I will share with you some backstage info. I am sure that most of you have some rituals when writing your posts, working or studying. 






The 2 tops are from H&M conscious collection.


Here are some of my favourite workstations: 
1. balcony (when the weather allows it)
2. couch
3. dining table

Blogging is my hobby and a kind of relaxation. I like to sip some tea or coffee, eat fruits or take some snacks while working on the new post. I like to have flowers around me or other colourful stuff like a bowl of fruits. My dog is always hanging around me when I am busy writing, sometimes he sleeps off putting his head on the laptop. 


How would you describe your workstation, what are your habits when writing your blog?

Checked shirt & mini skirt

I like to wear checked shirt during autumn. It`s one of those basic pieces that you can combine in so many different ways. This time I decided to wear it with mini skirt and heels. What do you think about this outfit?  









Shirt&Skirt: Mango
Heels: Naf Naf 
Socks: H&M

Paris is always a good idea!


Audrey Hepburn was right, Paris is always a good idea! But first I need to pack:
Standing in front of my wardrobe I am trying to figure out what shall I bring for the weekend is Paris. I don`t need too many clothes but it`s so difficult to make a decision. 
I start to think about patterns that remind me of Paris and then I realise I have a pale pink top with polka dots! This is what I need!
And my peplum top because the shape reminds me of the Eiffel Tower (see pictures in the previous post).






Top: PS Fashion, Jeans: H&M, Heels: Zara

Did you know that Polka dots entered in high fashion in the  1940s and 50s when Christian Dior included polka dot dresses to his “new look” collection? 




When travelling I always take my portable Chanel Mademoiselle parfum and the Victoria`s Secret make up travel kit with me. They are both very practical. 












My stay was wonderful as always: long walks, sight-seeing and gastronomy. We went to one of the small restaurants in St Germain. This is my favourite arrondissement when it comes to gastronomy, because of the huge variety of restaurants and bars. 

Hope you enjoyed this post!
How do you choose your outfit for a city trip? What would you take to Paris?

La Parisienne

I love to travel in autumn, and this weekend was perfect to visit Paris again (this was the 5th time). There is something magical about this city, every time I arrive I feel so happy and excited. If someone told me to move here I would probably refuse, I love to come here as an outsider and observe the `parisienne` life. 

One of my favourite things are the little cafes at every corner, so I started my day in a Brasserie eating croissant with macchiato. :) Afterword we were exploring the city mixed with some photo-shoot and shopping of course. I found a beautiful necklace in NAF NAF (the one I am wearing on the pictures), a pair of heels and some cool rings. 

I tought it will look nice to wear a peplum top as it`s shape is following the lines of the Eiffel Tower with simple black skinny jeans a flats with zebra print. And I just realised that everything is H&M, except the bag (Promod) and necklace.

















At the end of the day I returned to this beautiful hotel room to get some sleep before the next day. 

Hope you enjoyed this travel diary (and this is not the end). Let me know your opinion about the outfit! 
Have you been to Paris this year, what are your favourite spots and shops?

Checked shirt


Do you like checked shirts? I was looking for a new one for a while now, when last week I found this cool one in Mango. I like that it has a round neck instead of the usual collar, making it more girlish. For shooting this outfit I choose my balcony, I think the geraniums and wooden elements just go with this outfit. 







Checked shirts can be worn in many different ways, which I will show you in some of the future posts. Meanwhile you can tell me how would you wear this basic item?

Wednasday whishlist

I will re-start my french lessons in  October, so it`s a good excuse to get some new comfy clothes for going to the course. Maybe in this KENZO sweater even my pronunciation will be better...just kidding. :) And the New Balance sneakers will take me to the course faster than a pair of heels. To avoid a complete school-girl look I would combine these sporty items with a more classical Michael Kors bag that can fit my notes and books.
