Weekend Wonders

via Pinterest

I hope you all had a lovely week and are ready for some fun over the weekend!

. If you are an hopeless romantic you need to watch this film (I have seen it twice ... in 1 week)
. J.Crew is having some amazing sale at the moment (US only) just a few of my favourite things this, thisthisthis and this
. Ok so this 'you know you are a décor junkie when...' is hilarious I think mind would be 'you know you are a décor junkie when you almost get are arrested for house stalking or 'when you shoes selfie are all about the rug' 
. Rachel has this amazing green smoothie recipe that I am so looking forward to try out next week 
. How to decorate your home like a Montauk hotel, it looks so fab ... ps: I miss The Hamptons so much 
. I am loving this BaubleBar necklace | Also make you sure you check out Grace from Stripes and Sequins' collaboration with BaubleBar (I want them all) 
. New blog crush on Monica, I met her couple of weeks ago at a fun evening at Burt Bees. She has an amazing style, she is gorgeous and super nice make sure you follow her blog
. I so want to try this little cafe in Covent Garden after a nice morning walk 

Make sure you check out my Pinterest as there is a lot more over there of what goes through my head by the way I have been addicted to Pinterest for few years now and I usually get fed up easily with stuff but this is still my favourite website ever (with Instagram) It's an amazing way to save inspirational photos!

Have a wonderful weekend! (I am off to watch a good tv show and eat popcorn) 
ps: this house is probably my dream house (she says from her small expensiiiiive stamp size flat in London with no money) Dream girl Dream ...

Show your stripes

 A quick outfit post today! I don't know about you but I don't go anywhere without stripes wether it's a thick winter jumper or a cute dress I am all for stripes in any season!

This cute dress is a rather old one that I got at Cos and it was love at first sight, I instantly spotted it because of the stripes and it's navy stripes so nothing better but also it has two big leather pockets and I thought it was rather different it gives it a smarty look ...
Dress: Cos (old) Club monaco similar | Clutch: Zara (sold out) 

Pop some red lipstick on, grab your clutch and off you go for dinner ... 

(hopefully you will look a bit more tan than me, I look particularly white these days we need to do something about it) 
I couldn't put this post without putting this beautiful front door (it's not totally straight got knows why) but we were having our evening walk last weekend and I immediately stop in front of this beauty ...

The boss turned 30

 So the boss turned 30 last week and we did a little shoot because ... well because I love balloons but who doesn't!!

 I had to play with the balloons of course! I think I am gonna keep those balloons until I turn 30 myself ... do you think they are gonna last 6 years?
 Squeezed a little outfit shoot at the same time, if you follow me along on instagram and on the blog you will realise that I wear my chambray shirt often all the time. It's so comfy and just casual and it's J.Crew :) This cute skirt is from New Look it's an oldy that I had at the back of my wardrobe and found when we moved in our new flat and I thought to myself 'what a cutie' I am crazy about polka dots ...

 I fell in love with Pradman jewellery recently and knew I had to order the bangles. I had been looking for some similar ones for a very long time and could not find any that I really loved and that were good price. Make sure you check her online store! 
 I have been wanting some Sperry for a while now and I scored those on sale a little while ago and was so happy! They are blue so of course perfect for my blue obsession and you probably can't see but they have sequins on them, cool right? Few weeks after I bought the citrus version now I am on the hunt for the pink and white ... 
His outfit: Shirt: Ben Sherman | Jeans: Uniqlo | Shoes: Aldo (similar)
Hers: Shirt: J.Crew | Skirt: Old New Look but similar Party skirt (they are having a major sale on at the moment) | Shoes: Sperry top siders | Bracelet: J.Crew, Kate Spade and Pradman

Lost in land

 Sundays were made for this ... 

 Can you believe this is only 15 min drive from where we live ... and can you even believe this is IN LONDON? Because when I found myself in the middle of this park with nothing but trees and grass I thought to myself 'todo I don't think we are in London anymore' 
 For those who ask (mum) how I dare wearing something that short on a windy day well I had shorts underneath my friends!
 Dress: DKNY (old) similar Topshop | Flip flops: A&F | Sunnies: Ray Ban | Market tote: TK maxx similar J.Crew | Necklace: Nordstrom Rack 

Hope you all had a fab weekend and are ready for the week :) happy monday!!

Big Ben

Silk top: J.Crew | Blazer: Michael Kors | Jeans: J.Crew | Shoes: J.Crew old but love those ones | Bag: Tory Burch 

London was quite chilly last weekend but we managed to squeeze a little shoot with a grey background ... I thought Big Ben would give a bit of a spark in this dull weather!

Hopefully this weekend the weather will be a lot better and involving a lot more sun because hey it's summer tomorrow!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!

 I like those cute little houses in the reflection of the sunglasses? My photographer hubby is getting real good ... 
 I throw on these jeans from J.Crew that I absolutely love and was sure what to wear on top but this white shirt was just the perfect match. I love the jewelled collar it makes it even more special, it is perfect with a white skirt for evenings out or just simply with a jean or shorts so no need to spend hours looking for a necklace :) 

 I got those J.Crew shoes on a major sale in the US and they are really cute I love the colours and it is the perfect height for me (I don't wear heels very often mainly because I can't walk with them am already tall ...) But J.Crew knows how to make you feel comfy and fabulous :) 
The weather is amazing today in London rather hot actually I wouldn't spend more than my usual 45 min on the underground that's for sure it's probably like 40 degrees in there ... 
Shirt: J.Crew | Jeans: J.Crew | Shoes: J.Crew | Clutch: Zara (out of stock) | Sunnies: Karen Walker

Hope you all have a great week and that just like me you have a bit of free time to put your feet up and enjoy this gorgeous sunshine!

Little white dress

 We had a wonderful week weather wise last week but over the weekend it was grey grey grey and rather cold. This did not stop me from wearing my dress (ok I was pretty cold to be honest)

 This dress is really cute and perfect for summer days, nights out or just casual wear ... It's quite thick so to be honest it keeps you warm on chilly nights (and like me you can forget you are wearing a white dress and put black underwear ... oops) I wore this dress to the dinner part of my cousin's wedding last weekend because it was just fine for the fresh French countryside chill and perfect for the dancing part :) I did not want to wear heels for the dancing so I wore my Coach flats ... Aren't they cute? I bought them in the US on my last trip with the help of my sister in law and just fell in love with them. They are super comfy and I find myself wearing them a lot because it's easier in the city and let's be honest beige is pretty practical. 

Dress: Chicwish (out of stock in white) | Shoes: Coach (this year's version) | Bag: Tory Burch | Earrings: Kate Spade | Watch: Michael Kors | Lipstick: NARS

Thanks for reading,
