Tomorrow you’ll finally read a new travel guide about the cultural capital of the Yucatán, Mérida. This city has a rich colonial history, with old narrow streets, broad plazas, impressive museums and it’s a great place to explore. I have a comprehensive list of places, where to eat and what to see, which I will share with you tomorrow on the blog. But first let’s talk about what to wear in Mérida? What I saw, people do “dress up” especially in the evening. However, to dress up for brunch or dinner, I brought lot of pastel and colorful dresses, combined with colorful jewelry, flat shoes and a pair of wedges for the evening. As well as some nice color co-ordinated swimsuits for the pool, and vacation accessories such as hats and sunglasses.
One more adventure checked off my “Bucket List”. For me travelling rhymes with happiness and exploring new destinations makes my heart beat faster. That’s why my travel posts are special to me, because I love sharing my experience with you.
In the heart of Moscow’s historic city center, Leyla Uluhanli, of Leyla Uluhanli Interiors, designed her own apartment in wonderful neutral shades and a minimal retro-chic style. Even though the apartment is more than 270 square metres large with four-metre ceilings (13 feet), the aparment still had a little sources of natural light. So, Leyla Uluhanli had to come up with a new floor plan and mirrors.
I am starting this year with a long waited travel blogpost that I’ve announced on Instagram in October, and I can’t believe how time has gone by so quickly. For a very long time I have dreamt of going to Mexico, stretching out on a white sandy beach, eating guacamole and tacos all day long. Indeed, it was the first time I have visited Mexico and now I am very excited to tell you everything about this trip.
When you have the perfect outfit and the perfect pair of shoes, nothing can stop you to have a great start into the new year. Every woman needs that pair of shoes that are not only great for the dance floor – but that look (and make you feel) incredible. Thankfully, Fragicomo have stepped up to the plate with irresistible black silk sandals that have high-impact to get ready to celebrate. My obsession with these sandals began in September, when I had the chance to wear them at Fragiacomo event during the Venice Film Festival. The moment I put them on, I knew it was a match made in shoe heaven! These black silk sandals with marabou feathers, ankle strap and square 10 cm heel, are wonderfully crafted high-quality shoes and can be worn with anything.
A lot of women around the world don’t ask estheticians “How can I look younger?”, but “How can I look less tired?” Fighting the skin fatigue starts with the everyday routine. Often we forget the health benefits of sleeping, meditation or have yoga flow for a quality night sleep. Between lot of stressful deadlines, appointments, and stressing about everything we have to do tomorrow, getting the recommended ‘beauty sleep’ – isn’t always possible.
It’s Christmas Day and I hope you are enjoying the last days of 2018 with your loved ones and having a wonderful time. Following yesterday’s post, I want to share the whole look today. The only cover-up you need this season is a wonderful soft coat. Whether it’s faux fur, shearling or felt, this season’s cold weather shouldn’t give any excuse for letting your sartorial standards slip away. Wearing the seasons favorite TERRACOTTA palette, I can’t get enough of chocolate brown tones. This color is softer than black, and it’s just so sweet.
A great coat is definitely the cornerstone of every stylish woman’s wardrobe. Layer it over knit separates, knit dress, sweater, as well as with the belt to define your frame.

There was a time when hats were the ultimate accessory for the wealthy, and there was a time when ladies wore hats everywhere in the public. In those times head dressing reflected social status, and were decorated with jewels, embroidery, feather accents, floral applications and tulle, which were worn on different kind of events. But in the 70’s the wide brimmed (-floppy) hats were associated with boho or hippie style. Later in the 80’s hats fell completely out of style, unless they were needed for sun protection and were totally uncool accessory to wear.
If there is any accessory I love eternally, hats are definitely one of them. As a collector of hats, I have been obsessing over wide-brim wool felt hats for a decade now. Depending what you wear, hats give you coolness and elegance, as well as they add more personality to each outfit. Some feel daunted to wear hats, but don’t be intimidated by this piece just because it has personality – it’s actually a great way to add more style to any low-key looks.
All of the elements from the eras of fashion, many designers have re-emerged the wide-brim hats today, amongst them Ariadne’s Couture Millinerycreates the best couture hats for everyone’s taste. I found her on Instagram this year, and I knew immediately that it will click between us. She was so kind and made two wonderful couture summer hats, which I wore very often this summer. And now that we are in winter and following the F/W’18 color trend, I wanted to have a wide-brim felt hat in chocolate brown. So here I am presenting this masterpiece, which is definitely the best wide-brim felt hat that I ever had. Click here to buy Ariadne’s Couture Millinery unique hats.
