After a few days of horrible weather in London we finally got lucky with a sunny weekend, so we used the opportunity to have a city break to Bath.
It’s very rare that I end up falling in love with a city as quickly as I fell in love with Bath. It reminds me of my other favorite place in Britain, Edinburgh, with its Georgian architecture, cobbled streets and cute little cafes and shops along the pavement. There is no surprise the city is listed as a Unesco World Heritage site.
I will share my excitement in my next blog post where I will list all the things that I loved about this fantastic city but for now let’s focus on the things I wore.
As the weather forecast shows 20 or more for the next few weeks and I’m hoping for an Indian summer, I’m not ready to put away my summer clothes just yet. That’s how I ended up getting this pretty skirt from ‘& Other Stories‘. I have a habit of stopping at & Other Stories everytime I’m passing by because of their simplicity. Everything is so pretty but so simple which is very hard to find these days.
This skirt was something that I had spent a long time searching for, simple and elegant but effective. There is also a white option but it has a completely different effect. Red gives you that feeling of power and defiance, just like wearing red lipstick.
I was also thinking I could probably wear it with ankle boots and a leather jacket in autumn but it’s very thin and summery so I’m very much hoping for that Indian summer.
I paired it with my favorite ever summer things, wedge espadrilles, off shoulder top and straw bag.

For a while now, pleated skirts are every girl’s must have item. Have to say, I was a little bit skeptic about it because literally I never wore a skirt that covers my knees. I though it will make me look like my grandma, considering I mostly wear flat shoes.
So, the skirt was regularly avoided in every shop until recently when I was browsing through ASOS, as usual trying to spend money on things that I don’t need. This skirt looked so pretty that I didn’t care about price, especially not length. I’m wearing it now with ankle boots but it will look great on sandals or heels or even ballet flats.
I just can’t be more happy about it.
Another obsession at the moment is velvet. I managed to avoid the trap of buying expensive velvet dresses, trousers or coats which will be out of fashion probably by the end of this year and opted for safer option – accessories and boots.
These boots are from Dorothy Perking and I love the fact that they are actually navy blue but depending on the light they are changing color and sometimes look black.
Velvet bag has a long story. It’s been sold out in burgundy and black for a long time now. I managed to hunt down last one at Topshop sale last week after looking for it literally everywhere! Great cure for January depression!

After discovering Syon House and Garden earlier this year I just keep coming back. Not many know about this place, probably because it’s a secluded, all the way in the zone 5, London Borough of Hounslow, and it’s used mainly as a wedding venue.
I’ve never been a model but I love the process of taking the pictures and rushing home to edit them. That’s why it wasn’t a problem for me to wake up early on Sunday morning and go to this magical place with my friend before other people start coming. We were lucky because it was a beautiful sunny and warm September day.
Walking around and enjoying only birds and squirrels, I couldn’t stop thinking about all the people who use to lived there, and some still do ( house is owned by Duke of Northumberland).I was feeling like I’m in a fairytale, most possibly because of tulle with gold embroidery I finally found!

Many people visited Borough Market but you can’t say you actually been there until you visit it on Saturday early morning, without tourists, crowd and noise.
It’s so peacefull and you can actually see all of its beauty rather than bumping into people.
If you’re a foodie, Borough Market is heaven.They have everything you could possibly wish for.From grocery stalls, piled high with fresh produce to artisanal bakeries,deli shops to most important, street food stalls.
I got up last Saturday way too early for me and went for a stroll with my friend
If you think you don’t need flowers, you will change your mind when you see this cute place.
Anyone for some delicious fruits?
And lots of good looking stalls…
Who would resist and not have sneaky little treat…or two
I’m so glad that, even though summer is almost finished, new collections on the high street are still colourful.
As soon as I saw this skirt I knew that this is the item that will keep me cheerful during cold autumn days.
And of course, everyone needs cute little bee bag, right?

Last weekend I went to my first Indian wedding and it was so nice and different.Venue and the weather were amazing and I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately I didn’t wear sari but I fell in love with this dress.

I’m tapas monster 🙂 Even in London I want to have tapas every week. So first thing I did when we arrived to Barcelona was to ask our hosts were is the best tapas place. They recommended La Pepita ,small but lovely restaurant and bar in Gràcia. It was the best tapas I ever had! From patatas bravas,croquettes to Spanish ham and even fried egg with crisps…everything was amazing.
After delicious dinner we ordered dessert which was definitely something that I didn’t know it exist – Corn Ice Cream with Popcorns and Raspberries. Surprisingly it was delicious just like everything .Good thing is it not too busy and guest are mostly Spanish so you can be sure it’s good 🙂 I would recommend everyone to go there when they visiting Barcelona
I was already writing about this outfit and my first day in Barcelona but here it is again. I was feeling so comfy and good and this and I’m sorry that I can’t really wear it more often because you know… London

One of my favourite bloggers is Spanish and is from Barcelona. So this is opportunity to introduce her . Her style is mostly bohemian and inspiring .
Follow her here
Barcelona is now definitely my favourite city and everything is so nice there but the most amazing thing is Montjuic. I can’t even decide when it’s better ,during the day when the view is amazing or during the night when the lights and colours of fountain are amazing. And it’s so romantic
Like a real Zara fan only thing I was thinking is Zara. And I have to say it’s much better than London Zara. It’s much bigger with much more choice(they say better quality as well). Mango,Stradivarius,Pull&Bear and Bershka are everywhere. Literally everywhere. Best part for shopping spree is Passeig de Gràcia where you can choose from high street brand to exclusive designer stores.
If you are weird and you are not into clothes 😉 there is a amazing colour coordinated market ,famous La Boqueria . Everything is fresh and delicious . It’s good that I had breakfast before,otherwise I would buy everything 🙂
