September is getting closer, so now is the best time to start looking for new elements of your wardrobe that you might be missing or would like to have for the incoming chilly weather. As you are all aware by now, I do not blindly follow what the most distinguished and popular fashion houses are presenting during their haute couture shows. And there is nothing wrong with that. If a particular style, model or shape suites and I believe that I can wear it both in and out of season, it will be very happily welcomed into my collection :). 

Today, I’d like to share five trends for the upcoming season with you. Each of them have something that struck me as interesting and unique, and I hope that they suit your tastes too.

I have mentioned it to you few times already and you probably have seen it on blog by now, but the subject of Parisian Chic is my current favourite. Every book I can find on the subject are being delivered to my house day in and day out, and I am quickly running out of space. It is not surprising; Paris has always been my number-one destination to visit, and the amount of photos I have stored are overloading my computer! And here is yet another post about everything French and all that it is associated with; elegance and effortless chic.

The last book I had a chance to read is Forever Chic written by Trish Jett I found it incidentally during a visit to the bookstore in search of something totally different (Still related to France, of course!) The cover of the book alludes to another of my favourite books – Madame Chic, written by Jennifer L. Scott – which gave me high hopes. And you know what? I was not disappointed! :)

„New in” is probably one of my favourite posts to prepare. I love taking photos, making compositions and retouching the images to give them that final look. I think it is one of the most pleasant part of blogging (at least for me). I have to admit that it is time consuming (especially when the images appearing on the screen of my camera are not adequate to my vision). Nevertheless, the final effects always bring smile to my face! :)

It has been some time since the last post with my new in, so here it comes. This month you will be able to find some of the new beauty products, books and of course a little bit of fashion!

Denim is probably one of those materials that looks good in every form. I don’t think I have to mention here about its universal and timelessness. For many seasons it has been appearing in the propositions for the upcoming trends. Refreshed form, cut and the recurring style of 80s and 90s. I remember as while I was a kid, my mum has proudly been dressing me up with this dungaree denim dress. I can only respond to this in one way – it was the most hated item in my wardrobe. When my mum styled it with a lace socks and patent leather shoes I was feeling terrible (however when I look at the pictures now, I must admit I was looking very cute that time :D). Nevertheless, our sense of style changes with age and following this path I have had a chance to welcome this denim dress in my wardrobe some time ago. It might not be surprise, but since then it became one of my favourite dresses. I can clearly say now that I have inherit my sense of style from my mum! :)

Friday evening is the time I mostly spend relaxing. As I have probably mentioned to you already, I am not a “party” person. I value the silence and relaxation in my home environment with the company of a good book or with a bowl of popcorn watching one of my favourite movies. This week I have started my weekend relaxation on Thursday evening when with glass of white wine in my hand I was watching “Why not” (polish romantic comedy). I am unable to tell you how many times I have watched this movie as the number is still growing!

List of my favourite romantic comedy is very long, but I will share the detailed list of it with you in the next post from the cycle of “movies” :). Today, I have prepared for you my modest list of 5 movies that every fashion lover should watch. Are you ready? Let’s start then! :)

Summer weather has changed significantly over past few days (at least here in London). Even though the sun has just shown up today, the weather forecast says it will rain in the upcoming days. I have decided to prepare for you few propositions of the summer outfit for a weather like that – when it is cloudy outside and it looks like it is going to rain in a minute (or it is raining already). All three outfit propositions have been created using wellington boots which I personally think are irreplaceable on a rainy summer day or during the autumn time. Some of you might not share my enthusiasm about them and I completely understand that, however I personally believe that in a right combination they can look really cool and be practical in the same time :)

Fashion is the ongoing element of our life. Our carefulness, our attention to details to add a bit of a character to the way we look, is often very challenging. Why do we mostly come with the assumption that everything classical and “safe” is the only right solution? Timeless clothes add more class, grace and they make us look very elegant and decent. Therefore, it doesn’t mean that we can’t play with fashion sometimes.
