Macarons & one shoulders

In bed with a few favourites…

Statement shirts have really caught my eye this spring and while off-the-shoulder blouses will continue to hold a special place in my closet, all signs point to one-shoulder shirts being the new off-the-shoulder shirts. At this very moment I cannot resist eclectic, a bit more dramatic blouses that make a statement with their ruffles, exaggerated bell or balloon sleeves and that one sleeve-mania that allows you a smooth transition to the end of spring. This shirt is otherwise fairly streamlined in design, fresh with the blue and white stripes and unmanicured edges, but totally eye-catching and sexy with the oversized ruffles and reveled collarbone. Button down shirts are a classic but adding cascading frills, unsymmetrical layering counteracts the sleekness adding a good amount of modern to the look. Breaking the rules with texture and dimension seems to be the ideology behind these spring shirts and I am just as obsessed with the “sleeve- phenomenon” as any other woman!

Its raining at the moment, so there is nothing better than a little break in bed with chocolate covered hazelnut macaroons with a soft ganache in the middle, a cup of white tea, pink blooms and playing dress up with all your favourite pieces. These pale beige macarons are a small treat, but each bite brings a gush of happiness!

Boudoir Springtime

‘Fishnets, ruffles, blooms & high heels’

Hello black patent loafers and pointy heels, a hint of boudoir is a springtime essential, that has been popping on the legs of many street style influencers! Currently social media is flowing with the combo of fishnets and light-wash jeans that has risen as a nostalgic formation from 80s inspired fashion. I love when the ripped jeans hang from the legs as it looks quite flattering, so the more distressed the better revealing the tights from underneath or flash from the ankles. At a time like this when the embrace falls on genderless and effortless clothes, a pair of fishnet socks/stockings add a degree of femininity and sexiness to an otherwise “boyish” style creating that eye-catching balance. Currently, I’m loving oversized preppy ruffle shirts paired with boyfriend jeans that make it fashionista worthy with classic black louboutins.

They have promised spring weather for next week, I got some fresh tulips from my hubby and friday started off with a cup of hot tea and freshly booked tickets to Paris. Who doesn’t love Paris in the Spring? Time to seek those cherry blossoms and scout for cute hotels with balcony views. A little fishnet can add a seamless extra touch to an outfit and the right amount of edge and will for sure join me to Paris.
