Wearing red: the do’s and don’ts

Spoiler: there are no don’ts! Not in my handbook, that is. I feel like wearing red is pretty easy; you just have to find the right shade of red that fits your skin tone. The only way of discovering it is trying, trying, trying on plenty of red pieces! And when you’ve found your perfect…

A look from Dublin!

Such a catching title, really. I’ve been so busy finally catching up on all those January emails, work proposals and photo edits that I simply have no writing inspiration left.

A lost Barcelona look

While I was working on my blogpost about our little weekend to Barcelona (have you seen it yesterday?), I suddenly discovered a whole batch of outfit pictures that I totally forgot to share!

A dreamy holiday look from Croatia

When on holidays, I prefer breezy things, cotton things and nude-coloured things. Pieces that don’t require a lot of accessorizing (or extra work in general) and that make you feel chic and relaxed instantly. This beautiful flowy dress is a perfect example! The subtle stripes, broderie details and off shoulder shape add up to a laid-back…
