Sunday Outfit

Hello lovelies! How was your weekend? Hope you had a great time, mine? the only venture outside are these photos here! For real! All I did, was relax, read, eat, speak with old friends, relax again! Overall a very good weekend after a long and tiring week. I'm wearing heels! I bought these patent yellow Louboutin some months ago at The Outnet for a fraction of their normal price. They are well too high for me but I couldn't resist them! I'm sure you all understand me. 





Jeans: River Island
Top: Topshop (the short sleeved version here)
Jacket: J.Crew (very old-thrifted)
Shoes: Louboutin

If my wedding looks like this one, I will be a happy bunny. The video is amazing.
Many fantastic Alt recaps this week. Some of my faves, only some.
I want to be here, now! and wear this dress {spotted here}
I've been trying to make more soups. This one is amazing and now I want to make this one.
I might do this. A bit overwhelmed.

Girls Night

Ah well some times it's difficult to beat a girls night out, and Need Supply seems to know it. I know this one is a bit old (and festive) but it applies really for any big night one. Girls like to have fun, being dressing up, dancing, or chatting and these shoots below are THE way to celebrate. Now, what girl doesn't love a bit of pampering and pretty girls? Plus everything at Need Supply is spotlessly chic.

Boden in bloom

I received the spring Boden catalogue not long ago and it SO caught my eye. Beautiful settings (Greek island included!), full of pink peonies, gardening tools and pretty Hitchcock-esque blondes. Plus I really want that chambray dress on my closet asap! What do you think about Boden? is the Brit brand doing it right in the States?

A home that was a hostel

This central Madrid apartment was an old hostel with 11 tiny rooms and look at it now! This gorgeous family home now boasts 3  bedrooms and plenty of natural light. The kitchen is probably my favorite part, light and rustic with pretty Anthro details and gorgeous open shelves and white furniture. LOVE.

Melissa Shoes

I noticed last week you really like the shoes the bride of the wedding I posted about was wearing. Remember? The sky blue plastic shoes with a big red heart? Gorgeous right? They are Melissa and most specifically a collaboration between Melissa and Vivienne Westwood. 


All these brides look amazing, not sure if I would go for them on my big day (I dream of Louboutin) but absolutely adore them and would definitely wear them for any other occasion!


And did you see how Betty wears them? This girl, rocks pretty much anything!

Sunday Outfit

aaah the lady wears red! Red jeans remind me of my youth, well my teenage years. I used to wear red jeans all the time, wasn't sure if I could wear them more than 10 years later but hey why not! oh! ok, these are NOT those red jeans btw. So yes, red jeans happiness. 
What else? The weekend was good, a girls afternoon, N cooked on Sunday and finally discovering Spotify, the very best way to download/listen online music, and so legal too! Unfortunately not available everywhere for now. In the US it should be released at some point in the year. If you like music, be excited.

Jason Wu goes bridal

If I was looking for bridal wear I would definitely take a very close look at the just launched capsule collection by Jason Wu for Net-a-Porter
iconWhat? You didn't know? Well, me neither, but here it is, and it's delightful. I'm a bi big dan of Jason Wu, and I'm one of the many *many who swooned over Michelle Obama's precious inauguration dress. The Net-a-Porter collection is small but clever, and the Audrey-esque short dress has me dreaming of a very very sophisticated bride! 

{And the prettiest beginnings}

A Mission apartment

Crazy crazy about this incredible apartment in San Francisco's Mission neighbourhood featured in Apartment Therapy recently. I'm crazy about the floors, the natural light and the amazing black grey wall. I'm crazy about the book shelves, the art and the beautifully arranged bedroom. I'm crazy about the most amazing entrance and the beautiful checked kitchen floor. What's not to love?
