Picnik

Standard
I’m doing a picnic themed 3-in-a-row series and this is my third and final post today.
It’s the very first day of August and the plants in my garden have yet to blossom!
I’ve never experienced it taking this long. Usually they start blooming in June. I feel sorry for the bumble bees. I see them searching. In my garden they only have one option to find nectar, and it’s from the chives. But today the sun is shining so hopefully it’ll give my plants a boost, as well as me.

Park Date

Standard
I’m doing a 3-in-a-row again today and this time the theme is ‘picnic’.
This is my 2nd post.
Grey is like the ultimate neutral, right along side with white. I can’t think of a single color that doesn’t look great paired with grey.
I love the impact a pop of color can make in both photos and outfits.
Dress from H&M, handbag from Carven, umbrella with UV protection (!) from Leighton, scary necklace found at Etsy.com and Snap-3 comfort flats.

Nature Bliss

Standard
I’ve been deleting a lot of my sets again today. I have 9 pages filled with drafts and summer is simply not long enough to fit all my summer sets.
So today I’m doing another 3-in-a-row.
They promised us a heat wave starting today, and the prediction wasn’t as off as we first thought it would be. It might not be a heat wave, but it’s sunny and I’m taking full advantage. I’m organizing a picnic.
So my 3-in-a-row theme is ‘picnic’.
And here’s my first picnic set.
This lady loves prints and is not afraid to wear them head to toe.
Boxy crop top from Fendi, geometric print trousers from Iceberg, platform pumps from ModCloth and a Hubba Bubba clutch from Anya Hindmarch.

Off to the coffee shop

Standard
Nothing beats the smell of fresh coffee, and I need my x amount of cups a day.
Preferably cappuccino.
So today I’m off to the coffee shop.
It’s raining like crazy but I don’t care, I’m wearing a dress whether the weather likes it or not! With a long summer coat and a big umbrella I’ll be dry enough.
It’s the last day of July and it’s been an awful summer month with an average temperature of 12 degrees Celsius, and a total of 4 warm and sunny summer days!
And the heat wave they promised us this weekend and next week, is a promise withdrawn.
This entire summer has been nothing but a broken promise.
It’s not really cold today so a long sleeve dress and a long coat will have to do, cause I’m wearing a dress this final ‘summer’ day in July!
Dress from Ted Baker, Heels from Michael Kors and clutch by Graf & Lantz.

Spring Trend

Standard
It’s been awhile since spring but the trends in this set are still going strong. Graphic prints are happening, and the good news is that the trend will follow us into fall, so no reason to pack those fab items away just yet. If ever!
When it’s time to put away your shorts you can replace them with a pair of culottes or palazzo pants. And turtlenecks always helps transition an outfit from summer to fall.
I love sleeveless turtlenecks. I wear them underneath see-through items and underneath my shirts. It’s a must-have for fall, I promise!

Nautical fashion

Standard
There’s no escaping the nautical trend, it comes along every summer it seems, and this season is no different.
The nautical trend consists of everything navy. Stripes and the colors red, white and blue.
I still have 9 pages of drafts that I’m working through. I’ve deleted some but still need to get most of them posted.
So I’m not done yet with my by-the-sea summer sets.
Maybe it’s a good thing, because today it was announced that the coming weekend and next week will be hot and full of sunshine. Well, I’ll be surprised if the prediction comes through as it is not the first we’ve heard of it. Might just be dream thinking considering that this is the worse summer, weather wise, we’ve had in 40 years!
But I truly wish I can wear nothing but a kaftan next week!

Beach Party

Standard
Today I’m posting three in a row in appreciation of the sun showing up.
It’s a beach theme and this is my third and final set today.
We’re off to a beach party and for the occasion I’ve chosen a white lace kaftan dress.
I hope it’s not a see-through, but it really doesn’t matter if you wear a white swim suit underneath.
The cropped cocoon jacket, in a shimmering champagne color, adds glam to this outfit. A pair of gladiator heels and a floppy hat reminds us where we’re at.
It might not be easy walking in heels on the beach but these heels are chunky, and the ‘beaches’ around here are not like your average sandy beach. I’ve searched the internet and not yet found a good enough word to translate into English what we call these rock formations by the sea shores. But they’re perfect for tanning on a sunny summer day, and perfect for partying on a warm summer night.
This concludes my three in a row, hope you enjoyed.
