Look of the day: Do it for the Gram

Me: Dress - CHICWISH / Ballet Shoes - Hobbs / Bag - Michael Kors 

Katerina: Dress - Luna Luna / Shoes - Step2wo / Bow - Amaia Kids

EN: Can we talk about disappointment? Gram is always perfect, but how 'perfect' is our way to a 'perfect' snap.
Last year was the first year when Real Flower Confetti Fields were open to a public. And OMG it was phenomenal! Clouds of pink, white, purple, whith flowers were all around you. The flowers were as tall as you, as fluffy as you can imagine, the colour was as vivid as oil paint ... It was a dream come true!

This year the same field was open just for one week. People from all over the country made their way to the middle of nowhere to see ... the green closed flowers. Maybe in two weeks time this place could look like a fairytale, but right now it's just a field full of green plane grass.

I was saving this dress for a magical moment but it just didn't happen. I was a princess without a carriage or a castle. But still a princess though :) No one can take this away from me (just the time of course).

So here we are. Me in my princess dress in the middle of Real Flower Confetti Field missing the confetti flowers. 

The End ... or To be continued? 
Next story is going to be the lavender fields xxx

Look of the Day: Cadbury

Dress - CHICWISH / Shoes - Office / Bag - Dolce & Gabbana / Hair band - Asos 

EN: I wrote about Edgbaston Borough in Birmingham before, what a beautiful place to live in! We live outside the city but Katerina wants a house in Edgbaston lol. I had to delicately tell her, that on our current income we can't afford a house in Edbaston, private school for her and family travel few times a year... but she can defiantly get herself one if she chooses to be a Doctor for example :)

Saying this, this beautiful house belong to the founder of Cadbury chocolate, Mr Richard Cadbury. The house is situated in the heart of Edgbaston and the Chocolate Factory itself is not too far either. I've got to say 'thank you' to English Heritage for creating blue plaque badges. I've learnt a lot by noticing them whilst walking around and then doing my own research.

Whilst Katerina is dreaming about a house in a lavish area of the city, I'm dreaming about our next holiday together. The dreamy dress is already part of the plan by the way ;)

Look of the Day: V&A

Dress - CHICWISH / Bag - Michael Kors / Shoes - Asos / Hair Band - Asos 

EN: I've recently seen a meme online saying: Today I saw two girl holding their friend's hair back because it was very windy and she was trying to eat a doughnut. I love seeing women support each other.

Ok, let's get this story straight. It was just 2 friends, me and Yana at V&A museum. I was trying to put lipstick on but the wind was blowing my hair all over my face. Yana without asking made a decision to hold my hair back so I can apply my lipstick on without extra hustle :)) True story 

And here I am, with my perfect hot pink lipstick standing in front of the most beautiful flowers. The dress maybe more suited for my Malta holiday but I was too excited to share it with you. It has a beautiful leaf print and it has an intriguing horizontal split at the back. Oh, you are going to see it a lot over the summer!

Look of the day: Ice Cream

Dress - CHICWISH / Shoes - Jimmy Choo / Bag - Chanel / Hairband - Asos

EN: Some days are just truly magical. I've got to admit, sometimes I wish blog was my full time job. Because it looks like I'm very enthusiastic to wake up at 6 am, finish at 11 pm, select and retouch photographs till my eyes close, write till my fingers can't type anymore ... 

So here's is one of those special days. We travelled down to London for a day, enjoyed the breakfast at the Chiltern Fire House. Oh, the french toast with peaches and cinnamon was pure heaven! Followed by the visit to The Wallace Collection and Manolo Blahnik exhibition, stroll through Marylebone and Fitzrovia and a coffee with a view.

My outfit was a perfect reflection of my joyful and dreamy day! This dress from chicwish couldn't be any cuter!  Fabric has a gorgeous interesting pattern and it has sheer ribbons instead of the regular strips. Love love love

Look of the Day: Red & White

Top - CHICWISH / Shorts - Reiss / Shoes - Asos / Bag - Dolce & Gabbana

EN: Do I look like a person who enjoys camping? Funny enough Gareth knows that I can easily survive sleeping in a tent but he also knows that I wouldn't do it voluntarily :) I used to work as a tour guide / interpreter and I was charging money to sleep on the floor.

Last Saturday Gareth went camping with Katerina. Not too far, just at the school pitch. The camping event was organised by the parent's association and it actually went pretty well! Katerina really enjoyed running around with her friends till dark, watching the film at the open air and waking up seeing her friends in the morning. It sounded like loads of fun but I've been cheeky and chose comfortable bed over the sleeping bag.

It's ok not to do everything together as a family. The next day Gareth was absolutely shuttered and went to sleep as soon as he got home. So it was my turn to spend fun time with Katya (in a bit more glamorous way though).

And talking about my look of the day. How gorgeous this open shoulder top is!? So simple and so elegant. I'm always happy to show of my collar bones and shoulders (not to the mosquitos camping) xxx
