I wish summer would last forever. Those warm sunny days in London are the ones I look forward to all year. I usually spend them in a park reading magazines or catching a tan and some freckles, because let’s be honest, there is no sun here from October until I would say March. The rest of the time I meet with my friends for a little picnic or just for a glass of wine, because there is nothing more proper in London than throwing a picnic party in a park. I was lucky enough to be sent two bottles of the new Gallo Family Vineyard Spritz, one Pineapple & Passionfruit and second Raspberry & Lime, to enjoy with my friends. Personally I loved Raspberry & Lime the most, not only because of it’s colour (yeah, girls like pink) but I really enjoyed its natural juicy raspberry and zesty lime flavours. Although my friends preferred the Pineapple & Passionfruit flavoured bottle. The delicious flavours were the perfect way to enjoy some light and fruity drinks whilst celebrating the weather, catching up and spritzing our summer.
And you know what? We had the best afternoon together for a long time. What’s more, the weather was surprisingly good. I say good, what it means in London: no rain, no wind and sunny. I wish summer would last the whole year and I could spend more afternoons like this. But in the mean time, as autumn creeps by, I might stash a bottle to remind me of those warm days, because to me, Gallo Family Vineyard Spritz is like summer in a bottle.

I absolutely love Madrid’s architecture. It’s reminds me of Paris a little bit, but it is much more colourfull. And I literally wanted to take pictures on every single street corner. These shots were taken in La Latina, very close to Plaza Mayor. I was wearing Ganni cashmere jumper, Levi’s denim shorts and my new favourite backpack from The Wool and The Gang. Check out their crochet products, you gonna love them all!

A few days ago I had the pleasure to visit Las Rozas Village in Madrid, one of the nine Villages, located in Europe’s favourite cities. It’s a luxury outlet center, home to more than 90 boutiques, from highstreet brands to luxury designers like Gucci, Versace, Missoni or the British superbrand Burberry . After visiting their Parisian village a year ago I was extremely happy to explore it in Madrid. What I loved the most was its charming architecture and a big terrace with an amazing view of the mountains, especially beautiful in the late afternoon, where I could have a cold drink after shopping. If you’re worried about hot temperatures in Madrid, especially in the summer, then I can promise it won’t be a big deal in the village. Each boutique has air conditioned inside, and outside you can try delicious icecream from Amorino to cool off.
But let’s get back to boutiques in Las Rozas Village. If you like Spanish brands, not necessairly these super popular highstreet brands which we all know but for example Bimba y Lola or Aristocrazy which is btw. my absolutely favourite jewellery brand of all times, then it’s a perfect place for you to buy great pieces in great prices all year round. It’s like sale season which never ends. Sounds good, right?! Apart from Spanish brands it’s worth to visit Furla ( I’m in love with this black mini tote which you can see on the pictures below) , Gucci, Loewe or some smaller cute stores with cotton tees or home accessories. You will love their products but also each boutique has an interesting and unique interior what makes your shopping experience more fun even if you’re not a big fan of shopping. After that you can eat traditional Spanish tapas or just a healthy green salad. And finally have a face massage in Orogold.

This dress cought my eye in February when I spotted Alexa Chung wearing it for Unique show in Tate Britain during London Fashion Week. It hit the store a few months later and got sold out in one day. Alexa made it so popular, that’s a fact, but it’s also beautiful and I’m not surprised it was gone so quickly. This time I matched it with black boots to break that romantic appeal and make it more edgy. And of course my new fav babe, Chloe Faye in black. Even though Faye bags are not very practical – it is heavy and space inside is very small – I found Faye as one of the most beautiful bags from current season.
And a question for you! Guess where we took these photos?

These are my pictures from a trip to Paris a few weeks ago. I went there for Men’s Fashion Week to attend shows and events. As always, I had a great time, not only because of the fact it was fashion week and it was in Paris but it was also the first time this year I felt real summer, the weather was hot and perfect. I never understand those who complain about high temperatures, because this is exactly how summer should be.
Coming back to my outfit, I always feel like wearing more feminine and boho clothes when I’m in Paris. Do you also have that feeling that a particular city or place makes you feel special and you want to wear something a little bit different than what you’d wear usually? So I went for this white boho look: off shoulder shirt with white Levi’s shorts and Chloe Faye bag. And if you’re wondering where we took these pictures, it was in pretty Le Marais, a few minutes walking from Etienne Marcel metro station.
