Block heels

I have a lot to thank Alexa Chung for. She has rescued the classic black eye liner, which happens to be one of the few makeup looks that fits my small eyes, from the 50’s makeup section and she has shown that flats and block heels can be fashionable too. And that’s fantastic because those are almost the only heels I wear. I’m lazy and I tend to put comfort first, so I always gravitate to this kind of heels. Thank you, Alexa, for bringing them back. I bought the ones in the picture in one of my favourite shops in Vicenza, Lazzari. They are handmade in Italy, in Florence to be exact, and they are the perfect basic: they look gorgeous with black or little white dresses and they dress up your jeans and stripe tees beautifully. You can get a very similar pair here and they are on sale!

The one piece

I love one pieces. For me, they are always better than bikinis. More elegant, flattering and comfortable. But I’m not going to lie: I think that if I had a killer body I would prefer bikinis ;) Anyway, here you have the one pieces that I would love to add to my Summer suitcase.

Our bar cart

We’ve always wanted to have a nice bar cart. It feels kind of decadent, fancy and fun at the same time. We got this old bar cart from a second hand shop and as soon as we saw it we fell in love. It had that rustic vibe that we wanted for our home and the fading colour was perfect for our living room.

Vintage afternoon tea

For our last installment of our Gourmet Marylebone Series we wanted to share with you something very special: a vintage English afternoon tea. Inspired by the 40’s and 50 ‘s, the Reform Social grill offers a charming experience that includes delicate mismatched china, the finest fancies, classic finger sandwiches and sophisticated Bellinis.

Weekend Style Icons: Berta

Hello there! How was your week? Ours was a little bit chaotic… we really need some rest this weekend! Do you know what would be perfect? A road trip in the Cotswolds! Ever since I saw this post I’m dreaming about it. Only Berta is capable of capturing and trasmitting such and elegant yet casual vibe. Her blog and her style are our favourites at the moment. That’s why she is our inspiration for this weekend.
