Today I'm loving...

... the really nice denim looks and pieces Japanese designer Atsuro Tayama has created for Spring/Summer 2013.

I am normally not a huge all denim fan, even though I wear jeans A LOT (ok, maybe even more than a lot...), I think one denim piece is usually okay, but these pieces are really unique and cool. And they make me want to wear more denim, to be honest!

Today I'm loving...

... this very cute faux leather moto jacket for sale over at Modcloth:

The pastel colors are just so right for spring, and I like how they have managed to put a spin on such a classic piece as the moto jacket, that's not an easy thing to do!

Some more images from my last trip

Images speak more than a thousand words, so besides the photos I showed you guys in my previous post, I decided to show you some more, instead of going into too much detail in writing.

Some of the high lights of my trip were:

- Shopping
I love Marimekko, so visiting their flagship store was a great experience!

One of my favorite window displays was this Louis Vuitton one, with a vintage type writer:
And when I returned home, I saw the exact same display in my local Louis Vuitton store too!

- Having some goodies
- Seeing interesting historical buildings

as well as going to very charming restaurants and coffee shops:

So all in all, it was an excellent trip, which is good, since I won't be going on another one for quite some time.

What I have been up to lately

This blog has been quiet for a while, and in case you were wondering why, it was actually because I was travelling. Which basically means:
Eating lovely baked goods and enjoying some good coffee...
Tax free shopping...

(I especially love the new Florabotanica perfume by Balenciaga! Smells divine and looks so pretty too!)

Finding a limited edition Diet Coke pack, designed by Jean Paul Gaultier. I love how this looks!

And visiting interesting places, such as this museum, which was both extremely interesting and wonderfully designed.

I am back home now though, so the blog should become more active in a day or two!

What I have been hearting lately

I just love sharing some of the images I found over at We Heart It. There's just so many pretty and inspirational things there. So here are some of the images I've been hearting there myself as of late:

Today I'm loving...

... the gorgeous jacket Marion Cotillard (who is, by the way, one of my favorite style icons of all time, as well as probably the most beautiful actress around these days) wore the other day.
I'm not really sure where the jacket is from, but it being worn by Marion indicates it's probably a Chanel or some other, equally chic, French brand.
But no matter who made it, I love it! Black and white is so versatile, and so is the pattern. But the way the two patterns are combined makes this jacket much more interesting than just a one pattern jacket, so I quite like the twist too!

Today I'm loving...

... an Issey Miyake dress that came out last year, but that I have somehow missed until now. It's called the World Map dress, because the pattern is actually a map of the world!

As a lover of maps since childhood, and of maxi dresses since a few years back, I absolutely love this idea! And the dress turned out so beautiful too! Now all I need to figure out is where I can get this gorgeous, amazing dress!
