The perfect summer shoes!

Unknown1

Yes, summer is here, even if where I live it does not look like. As we speak is cold and rainy. Oh, the good old British summer. Well, even so, I am not giving up.

I have been looking for the perfect summer shoes for a couple of years now. A perfect pair that are beautiful, made for walking and most important that will not make my feet sweat. And let’s not forget, they must have a bit of heel :P.

I am so excited that I have finally found them that I must share it with you! Castañer Carina wedge espadrilles. I purchased mine from Net-a-Porter, they come in various shapes and colours and I am telling you that I never owned a more comfortable pair of shoes in my life. Another plus is that they look great with everything, dresses, jeans, swimsuits :D, they make your feet look small and elongate your legs. So chic and perfect!

Mid week shopping list

This week I am all about fall and layers. I know, you don’t want summer to end (I am with you on that) but let’s face it, it’s September and at least where I live, it already feels a bit chilly in the evenings. I am loving cardigans at the moment and comfortable boots. I figured I might as well start investing in pieces that I can wear after I give birth. Also ever since last year, when Isabel Marant did the collaboration with H&M I have been obsessed with her ankle boots (they are on my wish list and if you ever see them on sale, let me know). If you still have’t found that leather jacket that is so essential in any girls wardrobe, I have also selected 2 very good options below. Take a look!

Mid week shopping list

I keep on browsing the shopping websites and look at clothing pieces that would fit me post pregnancy. I am not gonna lie and say that I don’t miss wearing my skinny jeans with a loose shirt, that is actually loose…but I am not going to complain since maternity fashion has come a long way and now future Mums with the fashion gene can have fun dressing up. If you don’t believe look at this video from OH, Joy! that in week 28 is shopping for vintage pieces she can wear while pregnant. So cool! But this is not what I wanted to write about…wait, what was it? Yes, shoes, the item that you can still purchase no matter the bump size. I have been long looking at the slip on shoe trend. You know the sneakers that are not really sneakers and that you can pair with everything from a pair of jeans to a nice skirt or a dress…casual chic style.

Take a look at what I have found online below:

 

 

I ordered a pair this morning. Any guesses which?

Summer looks

I don’t know how’s your holiday mood these days, but mine is reaching pretty high levels. First we had 30 degrees temperatures for the past week (very rare for a June in Switzerland) second, the Brazil Fotbal World Cup is starting today and that means great matches, public viewings on the terraces in the city, and third, we will be heading for our holiday next week. I have been browsing the internet for some holiday essentials like a new summer hat, maxi dresses and a new bathing suit. There is quite an offer out there, but I managed to select some beach essentials that would look perfect as holiday outfits.

Here is my selection of dresses, skirts, kimonos, espadrilles and summer hats.

 

I browsed the maternity section as well and found some adorable dresses. It’s time to try some maternity clothes for this summer.

 

As a side note, my cuz sent me some pictures of her summery outfit on Monday. Big sunnies and a straw hat are definitely the best summer accessories.

Mid week shopping list

We are finally settled in our new place, internet is working and I can finally get back to my online activities. And to top it all, Anthropologie and Asos are having a Spring sale. Don’t you just love when something that you’ve been coveting for months just pops up on sale? You just want to hug yourself for not buying it full price. Take a look and see what you like.

The colour of this bag is so doing it for me. I am a big fan of electric blue.

I am obsessed with black and white stripes lately, and this top has that and lace. So cool.

The perfect spring booties if you ask me, just a hint of animal print, open in front and on nude. LOOOVE.

I find high waisted trousers on this print very classy and perfect for a work outfit.

Ruffles are not my first choice, but on this dress they add a sweet touch that matches the tie print to perfection.

xo, Andreea.

Mid week shopping list

We are off to Barcelona this weekend and the only plan is to relax. We already saw the city once so we pretty much know the iconic touristic attractions. The focus is to walk the streets of Barcelona, to enjoy some good restaurants and maybe hit the shops since I know the city has good shopping areas. And speaking of shopping I did a bit of research online and I’ve found some items that caught my eye. If I am lucky to find some in Barcelona I will get them, if not, check in online it is. With Spring around the corner is time renew our wardrobe. I am currently on the look out for some nice blazers, a denim shirt and a pair of loafers. Look at my picks. Also Shopbop is currently having a sale. Just enter the code BIGEVENT14 at checkout.

I love an oversized T-shirt. And blue is always a good idea.

You can’t never have to many straight leg trousers.

The weekend clutch #2

The leopard clutch, the bag that I think is indispensable in every woman’s wardrobe. It can be the touch that every outfit needs. I have been looking for one for a while and so far this CLARE VIVIER’s classic fold-over clutch seems to meet all the requirements. But faith came between us this week, when I found an italian leather leopard clutch/shoulder bag in town. I can’t wait to wear it and show it to you in the near future. Until then I’ve found a few looks around the leopard clutch that are just perfect.

Last minute sales

The best time to get some last minute winter items is a sale. Asos is having a big one and I was busy checking their website for the past 2 days. I found the perfect grey coat, a killer leather dress, and a very nice leather jacket. I also ordered a pair of boots that I can’t wait to try on.
