Lacey Lacey




As would any girl, I'm hook line and sinker in love with laces. Laces are romantic, glamorous, ladylike and edgy. I think they have a little Parisian feel to them.

I bought this lacey silk dress 3 odd years ago and it is still one of my proud asset. It is also a testimony to the fact that fashion repeats itself. So, dust off your lacey dresses, skirts, headband and match steps with latest fashion.

Have a lovely week ahead

Birthdays!





Dress & Necklace: Zara (Checked Dress)


Every year when I turn a year older, it is not easy to come to terms with all the mix up mystification going on in my head so henceforth I've decided to look at the brighter side namely at the perks of getting old ;)

Well to start with as they say, wise and old go hand in hand, I think I can certainly use some more of that.
Appreciate what I have more than ever, although getting splurged in a new dress once in a while won’t harm anyone.
Can say no or sorry without giving up my ground like “I am sorry I have to bring you down because you cannot take advantage of my niceness.”
Come to understanding that parents are right after all and start making up to mom and dad for all the times I screwed up and made them mad.
Know my drinking limits but I can push them from time to time.
Most importantly, money matters but values and relationships seem to be making to the top.

Now that I have certainly made peace with yet another birthday, I must confess that this year’s was the best birthday ever. Thanks to my man - he makes me feel special not only a day, a week, but for the lifetime. I have heard that with age comes experience, which accounts for better choices in life. As far as I am concerned, I’ll leave it up to you to decide if my choice of dress for the day was good enough to justify the experience :))

Have a nice week!

Careless Pants






Without defying my love for structured clothing, I must admit that I often slip into loose sweats or pants - they are as snug as a bug in a rug and take no sweat to style. Fitted/semi fitted top are most compatible with these pants. Loose on loose outfit is not flattering at all.

Showing off ankles with a loose pant is a big contrast which flaunts the legs. Complete the look with pointed heels. Or you can cover your heels with loose flowy pants to create illusion of long model legs.


My personal favorite is loose trouser with a fitted top and structured blazer. Wow! I just got another post idea ;)

Breakfast Like A King


“Eat Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dine like a pauper” 
I came across this wonderful breakfast idea a week ago while I was out to cheer my friend's daughter for a mini race event. After witnessing the epic cuteness of kids
 I was almost famished by the end so we went to a cafe around the corner in Östermalm. I ordered the only veggie option they had - Chèvre toast with lettuce, apples, walnuts, red onions dressed with honey, black pepper and balsamic vinaigrette - and it was exquisite!

I was so impressed by the flavors that I decided to try this at home the very next day. It honestly turned out to be one of the best breakfast ever and the best part there's no cooking involved.

How to do it:

- Toast two slices of bread
- Place a lettuce leaf on one of the toast
- Keep generous pieces of Chèvre on lettuce- Chèvre is a soft french cheese made from goat milk
- Places sliced apple on the cheese
- Sprinkle black pepper, a tbsp of red onions and few drops of balsamic
- Top it with walnuts and honey
- Style the other toast on top like a garnish 

Have breakfast like it's Sunday everyday and Stay healthy!

In the Loving Memory of Summer


In the loving memory of summer... Could it be true that autumn is finally setting it's foot in?

Well about the outfit - full black is a safe bet, isn't it! However a cheery flaunting jacket is just perfect to take simple black in to an evening outfit.

Have a nice evening!

Dress It Up




This post scream out to those who wear T-shirts with "I don't care what I wear" attitude but within walls have a clammed up desire to be stylish without quitting comfort.

Oh come on folks, you don't have to conceal your desire behind the muted workaday t-shirt, just dress-it-up like I did with a structured waistcoat.

As simple a tee can be, with a tasteful twist would easily pass for a chirpy day out or an evening ensemble. This waistcoat is a rescue to almost all my not-so-cool-by-itself t-shirts!

I'll fill you up with more dress up t-shirt ideas in future posts. Meanwhile if you have any, I'm all yours
