‘SUMMER LOOKS’ WHEN YOU LIVE IN NORTHERN EUROPE

Let’s face it. Summer in Amsterdam doesn’t really offer tropical temperatures. Luckily we can play around with layers to help keeping alive our summer wardrobe (we’ve been killing to start wearing) by covering up here and there.

Shoes, in this case sandals, play a big part into making your outfit season appropriate, even if the temperatures are closer to the single digit. As soon as the sun comes out and the day seems to be dry our feet deserves some air and our pedicure some showing off.

To re-create this style you just need to mix and match your summer and fall wardrobe. Open shoes with a long cardigan or what also work is bare legs with ankle boots.

I really love this cardigan bold star print. It’s a casual cut and fit but the print really stands out and makes a simple outfit of skinny jeans and white t-shirt much more interesting. You know how much I love pairing my casual wardrobe with statement pieces and this cardigan and sandals really are the core for a summer in the city. They creates the perfect casual chic balance

Luckily the days in the city are not much left. We are all getting ready for our summer travelling but in the meantime we can still enjoy some city trendy looks without being too casual, neither too dress up.. or like, for us living in northern Europe.. never too warm! ūüėČ

SAVE LUGGAGE SPACE AND STILL LOOK STYLISH ON HOLIDAY!

 

Now that summer is finally here, there is only one thing sticking to our mind:

h-o-l-i-d-a-y-s!!

Together with the travelling countdown comes also the luggage stress, am I right? Overpacking is always a bad idea. Confusing and not practical. That’s why I thought of sharing some of my packing tips with you! I’ve been travelling a lot lately, most of the times in good company of Emma, apart from the fashion weeks, so I did experience a lot of ‘lack of space’ left for me.

I do have less space left for myself now but surely I do not want to compromise on being stylish on my holiday!

 

 

I am not going to focus on all the beach essentials this time, but more on the holidays outfit styling.

The first things I am going to put in my luggage will be a pair of denim shorts, denim skirt and ripped jeans. These can all cover the beach, days in the city or countryside and chilled evenings.

Most of all, the essentials my holiday won’t miss are silk tops and white shirts. They are very versatile in the way that can be worn by itself or layered as I styled it here. The lace detail adds a chic touch to any outfit, day and night and the white shirt (especially if a boyfriend fit) can be worn from the beach as a bikini cover, to a loose top or you’ll be surprised how one well-placed knot can completely transform your look!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally, accessories will play a big part in elevating your look and they don’t take a lot of space in your luggage. You can wear very simple clothes, then add some gold jewellery for a boho touch and of course sunglasses. Think of a good bag in a colour that is easy to match to different looks, like this one by Fran Amsterdam. It will play a better role than a black bag which could be a bit harsh on a summer outfit.

Think less is more and think pieces you can wear at least in two different looks mixing and matching. If your key word is ‘versatile’ you won’t be panicking and overpacking this time!!

Have a great holiday and follow my Instagram here for more daily looks and inspirations!

BIRTHDAY TRIP TO VENICE

When I left London to move to Amsterdam what really made me sad was leaving my friends behind. So, when your best friend decides to get on a plane to come and spend your birthday together I couldn’t think of a more perfect gift and a most special birthday! If I say it was extremely perfect and fun, it’s still not enough to describe it!

We stayed at the Bauers, a luxury hotel just steps away from Piazza S.Marco. Imagine the most beautiful terrace on the water where we spent the longest breakfasts and aperitivo hours.. It was just too good! We made sure our days were slow and enjoyable, just enough time for multiple cappuccinos, a stroll around the canals, a boat trip, a gondola ride, outfit shoots and the most yummy lunches and dinner with way too much vino.

I decided to wear something really comfy but chic and edgy at the same time. Here, meet my new Style Butler fringed jacket! I love the classic style of black suede mixed with the fringes edgy details. I have been looking for the perfect one for a long time!! A basic boyfriend jeans and white tee combo suddenly is not so average anymore. I kept it casual with my latest sneakers addiction I got just the day before leaving and added gold details to give the look a little festival vibe. I loved the long rosary necklaces from Amen layered on the basic white t-shirt and a hand candy thanks to Jewelry by Add.

Nothing feels better than slipping into your feet a pair of brand new white sneakers. After all, within all the seasonal trends experimenting, the combo ‘denim + white t-shirt + blazer + sneakers’ is still the coolest one in my opinion!

When they say there are no distances nowadays, I could not agree more. All the ridiculously cool and adventurous plans we made before I left, are now becoming reality and any occasion, fashion week and birthday is a good enough excuse to jump on a plane and meet up with Lorna. Drinking wine while planning the next trip is becoming our favourite thing to do.. Expect more sunny Italian destinations this summer!!
