Saturday in the City

Good morning darlings,

I hope you are enjoying this beautiful Sunday, because I know I am. It would have been a perfect day, had I like … absolutely nothing to do, nothing at all, so I could just sleep, read and watch my beloved TV series (I’m awfully behind at this point).

Luckily, yesterday we (my fiancee and I) found a glimpse of free time so we spent a few hours walking the busy city streets, taking pictures, enjoying the nice weather and …it felt great, it always does. Wish I’d do this every single day during summer time. Especially now, when our lovely city came to life and a bunch of great concerts, festivals and other interesting activities are about to take place during the following weeks. Guess who’s excited ? Me, me, me … !!!

Music, theater, museums and fireworks …soon ♥

A special thank you to my better half for bearing with me today (actually all the time … but shhhh), I know it’s hard but it means EVERYTHING …

DreamerI took my new cobalt pleated skirt out for a spin ♥

Leather Jacket – Mix&Match Again

As promised last week, here’s some other thoughts on how to wear the leather jacket this Spring ! If in the previous post, I expressed my wish to pair the jacket with a maxi dress, skinny jeans, lace shorts, or cropped pants, this time around I’m definitely going for a more colorful and feminine approach.

Thanks to all the lovely ladies who serve as inspiration today ! XO

Leather Jacket + Floral Dress

This combination is as simple, as it is lovely : choose a leather jacket, pair it with a floral mini dress ( I prefer the ones with pleated skirts), add some colorful ballet flats or low heel pumps, accessorize with a cute mini bag, color your lips and voila … you’re ready for a fun Spring Day !

Leather Jacket + A Pastel Pleated Dress

All you need is : A leather jacket. A tea length pleated dress – in a soft pastel hue – I love Mint. A contrasting belt. Ankle boots. Statement jewelry, preferably rings. Style the look with straight locks and cat eyes ! Easy enough ?

Leather Jacket + Colorful Jeans

Both black and grey jeans look great when paired with the classic black leather jacket. But if a colorful pair of skinny jeans, could take your look to the next level, why play it safe? For an extra pop, choose a printed, floral, or embellished top ! Ankle boots (not necessarily black) and a dark nail polish would complement the look.

Leather Jacket + Black & White Dress

A black & white dress could easily offer a variety of options when choosing the print, the material, the structure, tailoring and silhouette. I love the classic combination of the neutrals and sometimes I just feel like sticking with the basics. Minimal jewelry, a cool pair of shades and a messy hair do, would perfect this type of edgy outfit.

Fashion Crush – Pleated Skirts

With the launch of Christopher Kane’s collection for Versus, this trend really started kicking-off early last year and kept getting stronger over the fall and winter of 2010. Now with just a couple of weeks apart from 2012, we are still into this trend no matter if we’re talking about the mini “school-girl-like” pleated skirt, the maxi version or even the midi length one – a true statement piece for fall and winter days.

The variety of lengths and textures, only confirm this item as a must, being so functional and working in so many combinations.

There are so many beautiful such skirts that it was quite hard to make a selection and what I finally did was to split my choices into two, designer choices first and most affordable Asos options second  :
