Today I'm loving...

this very Marie Antoinette'ish photo of Kate Moss with loads and loads of Chanel boxes. What a dream!

Shopped: Floral blazer and pants from ASOS

So floral prints are all the rage this season, and since I know florals are also timeless and come back into fashion on a regular basis, I decided to get some new key pieces with florals on them. Since I got an email from ASOS (one of my favorite online stores, for those of you who have missed this) today about their 20 % sale on selected pieces, I thought it would be a great opportunity to pick something with florals on it there.

In the end, I chose this floral blazer:
And these matching pants:
Because I love matchy stuff, it's as simple as that!

I am even thinking of getting the matching skirt and clutch as well, but I haven't really decided about that yet. We'll see. The sale is still on until the rest of the week, so I have some time to decide.

The only thing I am hoping for now is that the print looks cool in real life too. The problem with prints is that they can easily look kind of cheap if not done right, so let's hope this is not the case here!

Today I'm loving...

... this stunning laser-cut wallet from one of my favorite brands: Valentino.

I really think that a beautiful, well made wallet that you love is a great investment, because it is one of the few things you carry around with you every single day, after all. But one doesn't really need many of them at the same time, so since I already have a Matthew Williamson one in pretty good shape, I think I need to wait a bit before I get a new one.

Today I'm loving...

... this limited edition Diet Coke bottle, designed by Manolo Blahnik.
You see, I love Diet Coke, it's my favorite drink together with Diet Dr Pepper, and I love fashion, so what could be better than combining the two? And Manolo Blahnik really did it wonderfully!

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend, I am pretty sure I will drink a Diet Coke or two during the weekend at least!

Today I'm loving...

... these awesome napkins (or mapkins, as the company that manufactures them calls them) and blankets by Softcities.

You see, the maps on these blankets and napkins are not just any old maps, but you can order them to be of your area, so the street you live on (or any other location you choose) is marked on them. Isn't that just a perfect, personalized gift?
I certainly know I would be really happy to get a blanket or a set of napkins like this, and I do think I will order something myself.

My latest purchases

So I am still working on finding the perfect mint green pieces to add to my wardrobe, but I did find a tank top and a pair of crochet flats (not something I usually wear, but I decided I should give it a try) in a rather similar color in H&M yesterday that I ended up getting:
I would say this color is more aqua than mint green though (at least in real life, I am not sure it comes across on the photo), but it's also a pretty cute and summery color, I think. So I am pleased with this as well!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Inspiration: Mint green

I've already mentioned that I am really into mint green right now.
However, I am having a bit of a hard time finding cute mint green pieces to buy, so I did what I always do when that happens: Check out what's available over at Etsy!

These are some of the adorable, very on trend pieces I spotted there:
You can get it here.
Get it here.
Get it here. Or... actually don't, because I may very well be getting this myself!
This is also something I am seriously considering getting, so don't get it here.

Today I'm loving...

... the window display in a Mulberry store that I spotted over at Andrea's blog.

Ice cream display and ice cream colors on the clothing! Isn't that so witty yet beautiful at the same time?

Today I'm loving...

... these stunning photos of Adele from her recent Vogue editorial.

She looks amazing, and the pieces she is wearing (by Tom Ford, from his Spring/Summer 2012 collection) are stunning too.
But more than anything, I am always amazed by her flawless skin every time I see her. What I would not do to have skin like hers!

Quote of the day

I really think this is so true. And if nothing else, greed is really not a good look on anyone! So embrace the things you have and leave the rest for later!

Today I'm loving...

Some more shoes, or actually a whole shoe collection. (I guess I am in some kind of shoe phase right now)

This is Kim Kardashian's shoe collection, that she posted pics of on her blog:

Just look at the amount of Louboutins she has, very impressive! I really have quite a lot of catching up to do, with my one pair, to say the least!

Today I'm loving...

... these cute floral print wedge boots from ASOS.

They are extremely on trend for this spring and summer, but I have never been really good at walking nicely in bulky wedges, so I don't think I will be getting these. But I would really recommend them for those who are better at walking in wedges than me, because the floral print is divine!

Recieved in the mail today

A mail themed Lulu Guinness clutch! I love it, and already have an event to take it to this weekend!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
