A trend I am really loving right now

(although I actually think it is something pretty timeless, and less of a trend)

... is all the polka dots you see everywhere right now. Without even thinking too much about how many polka dot items you can find these days, I managed to buy two different pieces not very far apart.

One sweater that pretty much looks like these:

And one tank top that looks like this:
(I didn't actually buy the items on these two sites, but the stores I did buy them in don't have websites and I didn't have a chance to take pics of them yet... and they are currently both in the laundry...)

I am also really in the mood to get some more polka dot pieces, like maybe a pair of polka dot leggings?
Or why not a polka dog bag? That could be pretty nice as well!

As long as one does not wear all the polka dot items together, I think there is no harm in owning a few of them.

The saddest news today...

... for any fashion lover, at least (I am by no means trivializing what is going on at the moment in Syria, Iraq, Western Africa and other very troubled spots, where the suffering is no doubt immense, not only today, but for a long time now), has to be the news that Oscar de la Renta, one of the true gentlemen of modern fashion has passed away.
My admiration for this amazing designer is well documented in this blog, in fact, even my last post was about his latest collection (read it here, or just scroll down a bit), and I am sure many others feel the same, so mr de la Renta and the magic he created over the years will be sorely missed, not only by me and those close to him, but also by the entire industry he worked in.
R.I.P Oscar, the world of fashion will not be the same without you, just like it turned a bit more boring and mainstream when another one of my favorite designers, Alexander McQueen, passed away. You truly made women look like ladies and had an eye for details like no other. We will always remember you.

My favorite Spring 2015 collection so far...

(I haven't had a chance to look through all the collections yet, you see, just the ones I usually like, and so thought I would like this time around too)

... is definitely Oscar de la Renta's.
The color combination in this outfit is just gorgeous!

The collection is also full of really gorgeous jackets:

And the hemlines are often both pretty and unusual:

A really nice and feminine collection, in other words! I have not managed to find another, better one for Spring 2015 yet!

My new workout clothes

After a pregnancy, work outs become a priority, almost automatically, since you naturally want to get into shape. I have always been more motivated to work out if I have cute workout outfits, so I have decided to invest in some new clothing, specifically for workouts. And I was pleasantly surprised when I started looking for them, because the workout clothes you can find these days are really cute! One example of this is Adidas' Black Orchid line. I love the print on these clothes, so I ended up ordering both the jackets and the leggings from this line, and I am actually really looking forward to getting these pieces!

Today I'm loving...

... this gorgeous Collette by Collette Dinnigan dress for sale over at Net-a-Porter right now.
This brand is completely new to me, but I love this dress, the pattern, the length of it, the colors... well, pretty much everything about it! So I definitely think I need to do some research on this brand!

A great look for the coming fall

That I personally absolutely love, is all grey outfits.
I've never really been very into grey, even if I do have some pieces of course, it just seemed a bit too mousey for my taste, but lately I have really started liking it. And I love the idea of having one color all over, with different textures and shades to make it interesting.
So I will definitely be stocking up on some grey pieces in order to try this look this fall soon!

Sweet husbands are made of these...

... presents from Furla (a wallet, if you must know), as well as a lemon marengue pie from my favorite bakery. Have a great weekend, everyone!
