Hi everyone! No, I'm not pregnant at all! But with all the news and the lovely ladies around the web waiting for a little one to arrive I could only feel inspired to write this post. From Louise Pentland, to Louise Roe to the very last news of Chiara Ferragni, every fashion girl who's growing up seems to be going trough their first pregnancy. And with all this internet attention for young mums to be there's allways more apps and website where you can keep track of every little sign your body sends you.. without ever feeling unprepared!
Here you can find one of the most interesting and valuable website on the topic I could find, it really is full of interesting things to learn (wether your pregnant or just curious), tips on how to make your life easier when you'll need to take care of a little child and of course all kinds of news on the baby-world: from the best baby laundry detergent to the physical and emotional care of both moms and growing fetus during the whole process, to tricks for pregnant women.
I really thinks that pregnancies are one of those topics that as much as you speak about it, as much as you can get taught about it and all that, when it's you in the first place everything seems different, harder and so unexpected. And even if people told you they felt the same before there's maybe some doubts or questions who are just so for yourself and that you need to sort out on your own, living it through your skin, that's when the utility of this kind of websites and services really come handy, when there's just something you'd like to know more about, just to have your thought clearer!

It's just pink. But everyone is so obsessed with it right now that it even got the name of Millennial pink (so basically the colour of our generation). I gotta say in the lightest shades is just not a colour for anyone cause for the palest skin tones (like mine) it might look a bit flat but I've got still a bit of a tan going on right now so I've been looking for some new wardrobe addictions on Yoins and I did of course find what i was looking for. Even if it's getting chillier I still selected mostly summer clothes cause yeah..it's a colour I see more suitable for summer.. plus I won't have my beautiful tan in the winter period at all. The fact that on the end of September it's Yoins Anniversary Sale just makes it even better.. both for the sales and for the wide range they're uploading to fulfill the celebrations!
So as I was saying my whole selection is based on summer picks with long dresses, off the shoulder tops and rompers but it's almost October now and of course you would be more interested in looking maybe for various sweaters for women, or coats and stuff but they've got so many items and different style you can shop, there's literally for anyone!
Plus, I'd just love to share with you a lovely video on youtube about fashion, check it here

Here's a new post on a rainy cozy day. I woke up and got dressed this morning without feeling particularly inspired. Just a white shirt, some black jeans and my everyday Fendi bag. My fav new boots from Dr Martens already brightened up my mood a bit but still it's not that easy to overcome a working day in the rain and then I remembered that I had yet to wear my new earrings from CelineH2o . OMG I'm obsessed. I swear I've been taking them off every two mins just to observe them, and I've been asking everyone on my way today "hey, have you noticed it's two different colours?" I know I'm a bit of a freak but I really can't hide the excitement when I get something new (that I like ofc) and little things like these just make my day. I love how they close, and the fact that I don't have to be constantly worried of loosing one of them. The pink degradè just go perfectly with the hand embroidery I did on the back of my jeans and the quote on my boots and the heart-shaped zip closure just clicked all together to create a nice romantic vibe.

Autumn is around the corner, my hair is still salty and my tan it's just starting to fade. The weather is getting colder and to be honest.. I like summer but I love clothes way too much to be satisfied by shorts and a tee.. I need layers, scarfs..and yeah.. too many people wear bright colours in summer anyway. By the way today's post is all about little details. It's about that simple cold summer kinda look that needs a little spice to be "notable" without it getting to much. As soon as I got this jean jeacket a couple weeks ago I put on it my beautiful pin from SarahKIllustrations that had been sitting there for a while now. You know when you really like something but you don't want to waste it with something of which you're not completely sure? Right.. this is what happened with this pin.. no need to say that I bought the jacket with that pin in mind and yeah.. it just got 100 points in personality like this, don't you think?
It's been a few months of me wearing a little gold chain non-stop. I sleep in it, shower in it, seaside and all that, I just really like how gold pops with a tan and it's such a subtle detail that I don't really touch it, whether I wear different necklaces on top of that or just go for a loud pair of earrings. Today I wore it with a beautiful chunky necklace from TATERandNOONEY. I love how this necklace screams summer because of the rope like material and the braid that remind me of boats and waves but yet its grey/greenish colour makes it perfect for this summer end look.

Feeling beautiful, good, confident etc is something you can get everyday from your daily life. But feeling like a princess, a proper beauty queen in a wide skirt made of fluff and tulle, shiny reflections and your hair curled and tied up with roses is something you can only dream for the day of your life when you are the absolute protagonist.. which is of course the wedding! Also this time my selection comes from newarrivaldress where I got some great inspiration. August is the month when everyone seems to get married and pictures of beautful dresses, make up and hair is all over the web. Being young doesn't mean not caring about something that won't happen soon.. I found some great discount wedding dresses and here's just some of the examples. There really is for every taste and wallet.. The ones I picked are all very princessy-like cause well.. that's mt genre.. but of course if you're looking for something less "dramatic" or in a different shade like ivory or just a darker tone of white all of your wishes will be realized after a scroll on the website. In other words if you're looking for a unique wedding dress you know where to go!

This morning I woke up super energetic, but it was just one of those summer days when you've got absolutely nothing to do. Done with my exams, just back from a fire holiday with a lot of sea salt and sun and I actually forgot how it felt to sit back and think.. what do I wanna do today? I've had in mind for so long to make myself a "broccoli dress" with a fabric from Ikea that I got ages ago and it just felt right to finally do it today. It was super easy and fast (around 3 hours) to make and it's just how I imagined it! It's such a nice feeling to have something in mind and to build it yourself from scratch, I obviously study fashion design as well so it kinda has "an extra value" for me.. but yeah, I guess you all can relate to the feeling in different things as well!
No need to say that as soon as it was done I wore it and styled it for the day. I just got these sandals (which are from a collaboration between N.21 and Kartell) from myself to myself for the end of the exams and I just love them with this dress. Considering both the pattern of the dress and the knot of the sandals I didn't really feel like wearing huge and quirky accessories (like I usually would) and I went for the cutest little earrings from astrophilia. Whenever I wear them I get so many compliments. It actually works kinda backwards for me. My friends are so used to me wearing the most eccentric and colorful accessories that they don't even notice them anymore but whenever I choose something smaller and less "extreme" I get their attention!
The bracelets are my usual go-to from when I was twelve and an other new addiction is my phone case. I got it a while ago from dessi deisgns but I haven't put it on till now cause I didn't want it to get damaged for nothing during my exam period while I knew I could have been able to enjoy it way more during summer holidays!
Don't know about you but I really can't keep a phone cover clean and nice for long.. I usually destroy it in no more than a month and I'm way too lazy to change it as frequently as it needs so most of the time I just have old phone covers on..which is such a shame cause let be honest it's just an other thing when your phone looks clean and new.. the promise to myself is to try and treat it better.. it's just too cute to waste it!

My favs colours at the moment are pink, purple and all their shades so these are the colours of most of the dresses I collected from newarrivaldress and here's explained the title of the post as well 😂
An other thing that I found pretty interesting and definitely unexpected is the price of braidmaides dresses.. I had the solid idea that they were (and had to be) almost as expensive as the actual bride dress.. but I got pleasantly surprised to discover that there are actually cute and cheap bridesmaid dresses out there.. not that I'm planning on getting married anytime soon but in all of us there's a bit of that childish dream of one day getting married in a white princess-like dress in a beautiful location with every little detail as perfect as possible!
