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!
