Today I'm loving...

This travel related t-shirt in a gorgeous color over at Modcloth.
Having become a mother, I do not always want to dress up like I did before. Instead, I am fine with more casual outfits on days when there is nothing special going on (like today!), but I don't really have a lot of t-shirts. So I do think I might do well by investing in this, especially since I do agree with the message on it very much!

Today I'm loving...

Charlotte Olympia's really cute cat themed Kitty flats, as well as the Pussycat Purse.

While I am actually more of a dog person, I do actually have a cat these days too, so I am totally feeling the cat theme anyway.

While the material might not be very upscale (especially considering the price! yikes!), I do think it is pretty perfect for summer. Raffia just screams summer to me somehow...

Today I'm loving...

... this cute coat over at Modcloth.

I think it is because the pattern (at least from afar) reminds me of Japanese cherry blossoms somehow, and I have always loved those, as well as dreamed of going to Japan to see them in bloom one day. And the turquoise background color is pretty pretty too!

This is definitely a perfect coat for spring!

Today I'm loving...

... this gorgeous Alexander McQueen double breasted blazer.

I love hounds-tooth patterns as you may know, and I have a rather new fondness for blazers, too, after my beloved navy blue Yves Saint Laurent blazer went missing during my move a couple of months back (I am still in mourning!!), so I am trying to find a new absolutely stunning blazer to replace it with. I am not sure this blazer is as versatile as much YSL one (although it does look pretty darn perfect for work), but it's definitely a contender!

Stocking up on some basics

I think I mention this every time the sales roll by, so sorry for repeating myself, but it really is an excellent habit: stocking up on any item that is not so fun to buy, during the sales.

Since I recently discovered that French La Redoute ships to me (oh the joy!), I decided to take advantage of their sale in order to stock up some useful, yet unexciting basics:

A black blazer

And a black cashmere cardigan with mother of pearl buttons.
La Redoute has several all cashmere items on sale, as well as real silk pieces, not to mention merino wool pieces etc., so their sale is really well worth checking out!

What a great way to start the weekend!

My weekend started in a great way this week, since not only did my husband return from a business trip he had been on, he also brought presents, both for me and the little one. Some of those presents were eatable, and sadly now gone, but the present from Furla I got still remains:
It happened to be a very simple and very chic black handheld bag from the brand, which happens to be a brand I adore anyway. (So much so that my husband has given me presents from this brand in the past as well, including last year)

I don't know if it's because of the season, but I am really into dark, simple pieces when it comes to accessories right now, as opposed to the colorful and trendy versions that I usually go for. They just seem more timeless somehow. Or maybe I am just growing up?

Hope everyone will have a great weekend, no matter how it started for you!

Online store I am loving right now: Next

Another online store, that I was actually not so familiar with, that I recently discovered delivers worldwide FOR FREE is the amazing Next.co.uk. Since I discovered that, I have been getting quite a few things from there, so I was pretty surprised now that I noticed that I haven't blogged about almost any of them, with the exception of my Adidas Black Orchid set, that I also got on Next.

Some of the other things I got lately are:
 A Paris themed sweater. Not really so surprising, considering what a huge Paris fan I am...

This black and white pajama...
as well as a matching robe (sooo soft! I really love this robe, let me tell you!)
and the matching slippers.
 I also got a similar pajama in grey...
again with the matching robe...
and the matching slippers!
(You know how I love matching sets, even if only me and my family are the only ones to see these particular sets. So I just couldn't resist getting the whole set each time...)

(on top of all this, I also got tons and tons of stuff for my son, Next is even better for kids than it is for adults, so if you happen to have kids, I totally recommend checking Next.co.uk out!)

And I still have quite a long "to get" list left! (Living outside the European Union, I can't order everything I want in one go, sadly, as that would mean paying a lot of tax whenever the stuff gets here, so I have to order a few pieces at a time)
