The jacket

Jackets, a timeless piece to have in your wardrobe. Here is one that I found in Mango some time ago… Simple and Sober… Cool to wear with a skirt or jeans as shown here. Have a great week!

Style of The Hostess

I love to host people. I love cooking, plating dishes and all the trimmings. Brunches, lunches, dinners… I usually do some research online, look for new recipes, and then spend hours on Pinterest to find creative ways to dress my table…

Don’t Worry, I’m Wearing Shorts!

I don’t know about you but I managed to stick it to my head that we can wear whatever we want whenever we want. But it’s not true. In reality, fashion trends have put it in my head…
