Shopped: Another polka dot item!

I mentioned my current obsession with polka dot items here on the blog a while ago. And I still haven't grown tired of these little dots, which is why I purchased yet another polka dot item online just now.
I am talking about a polka dot tunic over at Modcloth, that I thought would look so cute with leggings, another summer favorite of mine, so I just couldn't resist it.

Vacation

Unfortunately, I really don't have enough time to blog these days, as having a child really takes much more time (thus leaving you with less free time as well) than I could have ever imagined. However, I did manage to go on vacation recently (with the baby), and recharge my batteries quite a bit.
(we had our own private pool, that we could enter straight from the hotel room!)


The hotel we stayed at is this one, in case you're curious.

So who knows? Maybe this much needed holiday will give me some inspiration to blog a bit more in the coming days as well?

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!
