Amalfi Coast // Sarenza

I’ve just come back from Italy, Amalfi Coast. It’s the most beautiful place I’ve been so far, I would say it beats even Santorini. I had a pleasure to organize my trip together with Sarenza, an online shop which offer a lot of must-have styles, from shoes to bags and accessories. You’ll find there many well known high street brands, but also an exclusive European brand Georgia Rose. I was looking for sandals, which are pretty and comfy at the same time, so that I could walk around Amalfi Coast the whole day. I picked the white leather sandals which suit to every single summer outfit and turned out the most comfortable shoes I had for a long time. They are also available in pink version, if you’re looking for something even more girly. Below pictures you can see my selection of other summer shoes from Sarenza I keep an eye on.

It looks like summer has finally come to London. It’s my favourite time of the year and I’m so happy I can finally put my summer dresses, shorts and crop tops back on again. ‚Keep it simple and girly’ – that’s my main rule right now. What usually “makes” the look is a bag – that’s a statement accessory which should be elegant and classy. Exactly like my new 3.1 Phillip Lim bag from Monnier Frères. I absolutely love its design, it’s minimalistic with a large silver clasp and chain strap. I wear it everyday now. It’s very comfy and I can keep a lot of things inside. If you’re are looking for a new bag for summer, I recommend to browse Monnier Frères website. It’s one of my favorite online stores with a great selection of designer handbags, shoes & accessories from sunglasses to jewellery. Everyone can find something for themselves!

Swimming Pool

A few more shots from my trip to Santorini last month. As I mentioned in a previous post about pools, Santorini is an island with the huge numbers of little pools. Some of them have an amazing sea view, but we found one which reminded me of the pool from ‚Swimming Pool’ movie by Francois Ozon. What a coincidence that I was wearing similar striped bikini, exactly like Sarah ( played by Charlotte Rampling ). It was really funny!

Santorini with Apart / Travel Guide

I’ve just come back from beautiful Santorini. It’s the most beautiful place I’ve ever been to, without any doubt. I had to choose between Santorini and Mykonos for my first ever trip to Greece, but finally my choice felt on Santorini. I was surprised it was not only all about luxury hotels and turquoise pools, but mainly about the white architecture, cute houses and pastel-colored doors, spiraling paths between them, old school restaurants, which strongly reminded me of milk bars when I was in a high school in Poland and of course the incredible sunset views to the Aegean Sea. In short, I strongly recommend visiting Santorini to anyone!

WHEN? The best time to visit Santorini is not during the high season, but just before or after it, so in May / early June or October. There are three reasons. First of all, it’s less busy, which is very important because it’s a very small island. Secondly it’s not too hot but you can still enjoy sunny, warm weather and wear a bikini all day long. Finally it’s much cheaper and just affordable.

WHERE: Aqua Luxury Suites in Imerovigli. It’s a less popular village than Oia, but still very beautiful and much less crowded. In Aqua Luxury Suites you’ll have your own terrace with a stunning sea view. Some suites and apartments have their own pool, which makes your stay more or less like from a dream 🙂

FLIGHT: We flew to Santorini directly from London. It was quite a long flight, almost 4 hours on a plane which was a bit exhausting for me, especially because it was a cheaper airline. The airport in Santorini is tiny and, I’m not afraid to say, below standard. It’s very ironic, because the island is famous from it’s luxury hotels. As they say, ‘Nothing is for free’ and in this case it’s not about money.

EAT: Don’t expect any popular fast-food chain restaurants or cafes. In Santorini you’ll find a lot of traditional restaurants with Greek Cuisine. Try Saganaki ( fried cheese in filo pastry ) , Tomato – kefides or just greek salad made with fresh vegetables. In the grocery stores there is a huge range of olives, nuts and other Greek speiclities. For the sweet tooth try baclava!

McQ Swallow

The re-launch of McQ Swallow collection came as a surprise. The collection left it’s decorative past behind and moved into a more provocative, bold form with the swallow logo spelled out across the chest and sleeves, as redesigned by artist Tom Tosseyn. The collection is capital D Dark, rough and very real. It reminds me of rough kids from 90s street gangs. It’s very inspiring.
It only seemed appropriate to wear the striped prison-like sweatshirt with flared pants and platform shoes to spike this bad outfit with a drop of elegance. It has the perfect balance between rough and modern day femininity.
We ventured out to Kew Gardens to take these photos. The beautiful long windows of glasshouses and secretive balconies added something mysterious to the photos, and I must say I’m so pleased with the effect I now have a smug face on.
