GUESS WHO HAD A BABY?!

Not me (yet)! Ahh – come one, did I fool you? haha

That could have explained my complete absence from the blogosphere (and the whole internet – truly sorry about that) but as you may know already I started a new job and this first month has been particularly intense. I will be back on track on March I promise. Until then I will try to post as much as I can on FB – where I usually share my favorite finds of the internet.

– But back to this actual post –

LACOSTE & JCREW HAD A BABY

Two of my absolute favorite brands collaborated and launched their collection online yesterday!

I only saw that news yesterday while scrolling down on my instagram and was so so happy.

Both prep’ giants worked on a polo collection that is described perfectly in the The Fashion Spot.

The shirts are an updated throwback, inspired by the 1983 version of Lacoste’s alligator logo, rendered in blue as opposed to the green we’re used to seeing. – WWD

Available in three colorways, J.Crew switched it up with an archive style straight from 1983 that swaps out the traditional green crocodile for a blue one that’s detailed with a Lacoste cursive font inside the logo. The shirt’s fit has also been updated with a slimmer cut and features notched tennis tails. – Acquiremag.com

This is such an amazing idea – these are both great brands and I personally think that Jcrew has been doing an amazing job in teaming up with some great other leaders in an important range of market. Well done you two!

Polo Game in London

As some of you may know already, I spent a month in London last summer. Although I was there for my studies, I had the opportunity to explore the city, taste a tiny bit of the British lifestyle and mostly, meet a lot of amazing people.

One day after classes, a friend of mine suggested going to see a polo game – I accepted the invitation right away as I think it is such a beautiful sport and I had never been to any game before.

When we arrived I was so excited to see all the horses (that I think are one of the most beautiful and elegant creatures ever), the players in their nice uniforms and everyone dressed up to attend the game.

What I liked about it was that you could either appreciate the game from one side, sitting down and enjoying a cup of tea, or be on the other side (more casual) throwing your own picnic with friends.

In fact, I was expecting the game to be much more dynamic. You don’t have that many players in both teams but the field has to be huge for the horses to run. As a result, the action may not going on in front of you everytime. This was the only downside.

I loved to see how fast the horses went, and then how precise, delicate but yet strong the kick had to be done for the players to throw the ball. Absolutely amazing.

If you ever go to a polo game and if you are able to bring a picnic or so, I would suggest you to do that. Attending a game like this is more about the atmosphere and enjoying the time spent with your friends and family than really bein drawn to the action (at least in my case because I am not a fine connaisseur of this sport).

Have you ever been to a game like this?

Hoping you are having a wonderful week.

❖ Feeling (very) Casual Chic ❖

Hi guys!

Today I wanted to write a quick inspiring fashion post.

After that huge flow of statement necklaces, sequins, faux leather style etc. I’ve been in a very chilling mood. Lately I’ve been feeling like -» Leggings, nice shirt, my sneaker, a messy hair, a nice make up and I’M READY TO GO!

So here go some very cute outfits and ideas of style that I found very inspiring. Who said you could not be chic while super comfy and casual? 😉

I need to buy a pair of white converse! I think they are just so so cute. Love that first look, I think it is perfect for spring, such gentle color but super nice and still warm textures. Regarding the second style, I am also crazy about it. How easy is that classy look – a pair of jeans, a nice top. Put a blazer on it and spice the whole thing with a pair of all stars! SO CUTE.

Staying with the casual footwear, as you may remember from this post, I absolutely love New Balance sneakers, I actually own a pair and they are so so comfortable. Love that look! So cool – kind of fresh for the weather were I live though.. But nice idea for warmer days! haha

POLO DRESS GUYS! OMG, I spotted a very cute one this week end, and I think I am going back to the store and buy it because it is so cute. And while we are talking about casual outfits… Well, one morning I wake up and feel lazy to pick an outfit…. You got it, right? 😉
The one I want to buy is actually ivory, and I think I’l turn it super fun with a pair of bright and funky flats. Because I want to look fun like that!

I hope you guys liked those ideas, and that they will inspire you!

Have a nice day!

XOXO,
