A little cocktail dress with overtness situation from Milan. Wore this ruffled dress to the Diesel Black Gold show and decided to pair it with an unconventional shoe like these cutout overknees from Guess. My metallic nails and accessories seemed like a perfect addition to the burgundy and black palette of the outfit so I went with them.
If you guys are following me on instagram you probably noticed I went to Milan last week for Fashion Week with Marie Claire magazine. I didn’t have much time to prepare outfit-wise, but I’m so happy I got this dress from Asos a day before departure. It’s that perfect street style material that you need in a city like Milan. I saw two other girls wearing this same dress during MFW so maybe it’s not only my opinion
Will do a small recap about it later and share my Milan experience with you, so stay tuned <3
So I think it’s about time I shared with you the pictures of our little Croatian adventure, which ended almost two weeks ago. Going to Croatia was a very spontaneous decision, we didn’t even get a chance to find plane tickets so my two girlfriends and I ended up driving all across Hungary and Croatia to get to the city of Split, where we spent the night and got on a ferry the next day to reach our final destination – the island of Hvar. We booked a beautiful apartment on airbnb and spent a lovely week in the cities of Stari Grad and Hvar.
Croatia is even more beautiful in real life, than in the pictures I’ve seen on instagram, the Adriatic sea was extremely warm and the water was very salty and clear. If you’re into nightlife, I definitely recommend staying in the town of Hvar, it’s a very lively place. Stari Grad, where our apartment was located, has a beautiful port and the old town, amazing nature and was more on a quiet side, so we ended up driving to Hvar every day, since it’s only 15 min away.

I don’t know about you guys, but I personally never had a love & hate relationship with UGGs. Maybe it’s because of the really cold temperatures I sometimes find myself living in, that only these boots seem to cope with, but I always loved their minimalistic styles. I’m a huge fan of chunky boots over skinny pants, like in the old times of Givenchy or Isabel Marant, and these boots right slightly remind me of that silhouette.
I chose the classic chestnut UGGs for a short road trip with a friend the other day and I kept the rest of the outfit as simple and cozy as possible, but I definitely see myself wearing them in my looks of the day because the styling possibilities are numerous and I wouldn’t mind bringing more coziness into some of my more fashionable outfits. For every season I find a pair of flat shoes that I wanna wear all the time and these UGGs might just be the one! I do intend to challenge myself in creating a couple of less obvious outfit combos so stay tuned for that!
I hope you guys had a lovely New Year and already sorted out all your resolutions for 2016. I’m finding it difficult to express everything I expect from myself in 2016 because 2015 taught me that there is no limit to what I can do and achieve.
Some of my defining moments in 2015 were:
– moving to another city and choosing personal styling as my final career path
– seeing therapist for the first time in my life (I have to confess I faced an identity crisis this summer and getting professional help was one of the best decisions in my life, if you guys ever doubt – go for it!)
– attending trainings and reading a ton of books on personal growth
– learning to meditate
– Paris Fashion Week
– meeting truly inspiring people that I can learn a lot from
Some of the things I plan to focus on in 2016:
– finding balance between work and pleasure
– building a strong body
– traveling to places I’ve never been
– getting back to learning French and Spanish
– reading books I’ve been saving on my Ipad throughout 2015
– learning to network and delegate
As for the look above, as you can probably tell the pics were taken near Musee du Louvre in Paris. I always forget to post everything we shoot on our trips and was happy to find them browsing through my folders yesterday. It’s super casual as it was taken on the last day of exploring the city, I hope you like it.
