It's Monday (yet again), so there is a new outfit around here :D This time however we leave the flowers and all the cute stuff behind and we go a little bit more underground. Babe found this super awesome and artsy location last week and I still had one more outfit prepared so we went to see it. A whole street full of graffitis and art galleries, but also with cafes, small restaurants or bars here and there - super super cool! I totally loved it and I definitely wanna go back there sometime.

Regarding the outfit, well I recently saw this baby blue BLAZER on the website and I instantly thought that it would be perfect for spring. I already had a coat in a similar color, but I thought that a new blazer is always a good idea and I particularly loved the color of this one. Moreover I love it's simplicity and the fact that it's very easy to style, either in an elegant way with heels, or in a more cool, casual way with sneakers (see my last photo). Another big plus is its length and the fact that is longer than the "normal" blazers, which I definitely like. And I shouldn't forget to tell you that the fabric is very soft and it is not so thick, therefore it's definitely a good investment for summer as well. :) You can check it out HERE.

As you can see, I composed this look starting with some basics - a pair of black pants and a striped blouse, to which I added the blazer. I couldn't leave it too simple even though that would have been fine too, but I decided to embrace the trend of wearing corsets over clothes and therefore I tied everything with a black corset. I think this definitely makes the look more interesting and it adds that little extra something to it, right? :D

Happy Monday everyone!
Hugs, A.

Dusky Pink Ruffles

Do you know that moment when you have your outfit ready for a certain location and you had already imagined how the photos will turn out and of course everything would go silky smooth? Yeah, that almost never happens and the plans we make at home are usually very far away from the reality. The same thing happened to me on Monday when I wanted to shoot this outfit and my brilliant idea was to do that at the Bund because that truly is one of the most beautiful places in the city. However, I did not take into consideration that it is also one of the most famous and busy places in the city, not to mention that on that day there was also a national holiday and the place would be even more crowded that usual. And when I say crowded, you can't even imagine and I can't even properly describe what crowded means in this country.

So the moment we got there all my plans were ruined and I already thought we would have to do it another time but in the end we found a little place where there were fewer people. We only managed to take a few photos as it was really not the best location for something like that, plus that everybody was staring at us..prettyyy awkward! At least now you will understand my not-so-happy face in these photos :))

Nonetheless, I had to show you this adorable dusky pink BLOUSE that I wore on Monday and which I totally love. Why? Because it's something I didn't see yet on any other blogs, plus that it has a gorgeous color and it is definitely something I didn't have so far. The design is very feminine and cute and the blouse has a lot of fabric in it. I also love the fact that the layered ruffles go all the way to the back, which makes it of a very good quality. I styled it this time with a pair of embroidered mom jeans and some pinky/nude accessories, but you can easily make it look more elegant by adding a pair of trousers or a pencil skirt. On the other hand, you can also dress it down by wearing a pair of sneakers to those jeans. :) The options are infinite, it's up to you to choose. You can find the lovely blouse HERE and I think it is definitely something you should add to your spring / summer wardrobe.

What do you think? How would you wear this blouse?

Have a lovely weekend,

Blooming trees and pastels

Finally a new outfit post, right? :D We traveled a lot this past month and I didn't really have time to shoot many outfits, but now that we are home for a while I couldn't wait to do it again. Plus that I received some super cute new items which I can't wait to show you. The first one is this lovely blue SHIRT with dots and ruffles which I find to be extremely sweet, versatile and perfect for spring. I saw this design last year at H&M but I couldn't get my hands on that one because it was sold out super fast, so you can imagine how happy I was when I found this one HERE. I always read the reviews before ordering something and some of the people were saying that they didn't like the fabric of this shirt, but personally I love it. I mean it is 100% cotton, what can you not love about it? It is not thin nor too thick, just great for spring and besides that it has long sleeves which makes it perfect for this kind of weather.

The shirt is also very easy to style and it looks great either with pants, jeans, shorts, or with skirts, like I chose to wear it yesterday when we went for a walk in the city. I gave it a lot of thought whether to wear a pair of heels or some sneakers, but you know..sneakers always win when you have to walk at least 5 km in a day. :) However, a pair of heels would have made the whole look even more feminine. :) Maybe next time..

Last but not least, what would spring be without some photos near the trees in bloom? :)) It might seem a bit mainstream but who cares, they are colorful, cute and they give me (& I hope you too) only positive vibes.

Have a great new week and don't forget to check out this shirt HERE, it has a great price ;)

Love, A.

Colors & Ruffles in Hong Kong

 Blouse / Bluza - Zara || Pants / Pantaloni - Primark || Jacket / Geaca - Primark || Bag / Geanta - Zara || Sneakers / Sneakers - Bershka

I don't even know where to begin, but I guess I will by telling you that I fell deeply in love with Hong Kong. Even if we where there only for 2 nights, so basically we only had time to explore the city last Saturday, we managed to see quite a lot for one day. That took of course a 10 km walk and some sore legs during that day, but it was definitely worth it!

Do you remember the movies with Jackie Chan? Well, Hong Kong is exactly like in the movies: busy, effervescent, full of life, with wide boulevards, skyscrapers and red taxis. Oh, and we shouldn't forget the colourful, double deck trams called Ding Dong, which have a history of over 110 years and are not just the cheapest mean of public transport on the island, but also a major tourist attraction and one of the most environmentally friendly ways of travelling in HK.

But let's start right from the beginning: we stayed at the YMCA Salisbury Hotel, which had an excellent location. The hotel was very close to the subway station and to the harbour, but also near the city centre, restaurants and even to the shopping area. And the cherry on top was the great view of the Victoria Harbour we had from our room. So on Saturday morning, after having our breakfast at the hotel, we went to the pier and took the ferry to the island. We opted to go to Wan Chai Ferry Pier and to walk from there all the way to the Central Pier. Don't worry, we didn't choose the shortest way to get there, but quite a long and bumpy one, with so many stairs and slopes to climb. :) On our journey we admired the city, the buildings, the fuss, the beautiful gardens and parks (like the Hong Kong Park and the HK Zoological and Botanical Garden), we passed by a Catholic Church and then by a Mosque, after which we "landed" in SoHo - the very famous district full of restaurants, bars, nightclubs, art galleries and antique stores. Here can be found the Central Mid Levels Escalator which was built in 1993 and which was at that time the longest escalator system in the world.

From there we went on the Hollywood Road and then wandered the streets a little more until we found, by mistake or by luck, a small Ramen restaurant which didn't promise much from outside, but which had won 3 Michelin Stars 3 years in a row. Needless to say that the Ramen was extraordinary.
We then continued our road up to the Central Pier, but not before taking the Ding Dong for 2 stations. At the Central Pier we decided to go on the Hong Kong Observation Wheel and get a beautiful panorama of city, straight from above, after which, even if we were super tired and our feet were in so much pain, we also had a short walk on the promenade before taking the ferry and going back to the hotel.

Finally, I also have to tell you a few words about the "Symphony of Lights" which is a light and sound show taking place at the Victoria Harbour every night at 8 p.m. and which lasts for 14 minutes. This show is the largest permanent light and sound show according to the Guinness World Records, so once you are there you must not miss it because it's wonderful!

I will leave you now with the photos and my colourful, full of ruffles outfit :)

Have a lovely weekend,
