spendings in italy.

Murano glass ring from Lucca. A couple of years ago we went to the Murano Island, and to just see some of the beautiful creations made from the glass is just lovely! Tan Leather Bag from Florence, from this little handbag shop, as soon as you walked into the room you could smell the beautiful leather. Finally Elle Italia, from Viareggio where we stayed.

On our third day there we caught the train and had a day trip in the lovely town of Lucca. Its a walled town which to get into you go through a tunnel and it has so much character it is lovely to walk around. My mum and I took loads of photos, as around every corner was something new to see. There were some lovely little shops too, one especially where i bought a ring and my bought a necklace. We didn't know very much about the town and just explored by ourselves which was really good, I'd love to go again though and look around more as there were soo many winding streets. Also there was tower which would have been good to go up to see the view, it was so hot though we had to keep stopping in shade! Didn't get very dressed up, because of the weather, so just wore urban outfitters skirt, zara tee and accessorize sunglasses.

a look back.

This is my mom back in the day, in Portugal. And as i am heading to Tuscany soon i thought it was appropriate to show some pictures. I love my mom style in these two pics the first especially because she looks so cool, as i love the trapeze top and sunglasses but also the fact she is wearing a cowboy hat. The second photo you may recognise the pair of shorts from the blog which i have worn numerous times. So as fashion comes in circles i may be dressing like this while I'm away!

summer nights.

Just a super quick post, i seem to be very busy doing nothing! This is really a fall dress but i love rolling up the sleeves and wearing it with no tights in summer evenings.

down to earth.

Sorry for neglecting the blog, was away with friends and family for a week, had such a lovely time. I really need to get dedicated to the blog again, after my exam all replying and posting seemed to go out the window. Anyway here is some inspiration from recognition magazine love the colours and especially the headpieces and jewelry.

a mix of taste.

These are some of the second set of photos i took of my friend. I loved the colour of the skirt, and the girlishness of it and decided to pair it with the tribal print top for a complete contrast, yet i think the colours work really well together. Again we have rings, but also wooden bracelets to go with the top. I loved the look with converse to really quirk the look up. I really love the soft lighting in the first photo and so i made the rest have an earthy tone to the photo. I'm starting to find i like it better behind the camera!

a new world.

These are the first set of photos i took took of my friend. I loved the dress with the wet look leggings and my friends hair went so well with the look too. I took so many photos but i decided these three were the best, the lighting was so good and i decided to do a near black and white image. It was kind of an effortless look, but with attitude, my friend pulled it off perfectly. What do you think guys?

fields forever.

Such an amazingly strange night, and the bands were awesome! I wore urban outfitters headband, selections of rings, topshop shorts, yuki dress/top.

Mary Kate here, Topshop Fall here, Mary Kate and Ashley here, Erin Fetherson here.

Ever since i saw them on Mary Kate and Ashley at the Elle style awards, i loved the look. If only i could find the perfect translucent maxi skirt.
