Happy 1st Advent

Today is the first Advent Sunday, which means the official start of the Christmas season! huhu~~~ It’s also time to light the first candle. I made one advent wreath for the dining table.
And one for our coffee table. I still need to prepare a few other decorations, but already feel the holiday spirit in the air. :-D Wish you a wonderful first Advent and a great start in the week!

Fall Outfit (7): Blue Blues

Happy Black Friday everyone! Even though we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in Europe, there are plenty of shops that offer a discount on selected goods on black Friday. Well, I don’t want to rush to the shops for major Christmas shopping today, but will go to candle & flower stores with a friend (for the first Advent Sunday)!

Now back to topic, may I share my casual shopping outfit? ;-) Wish you all a wonderful weekend!
Sweater dress: COS, scarf, bag & gloves: Hermès, flats: Santoni.

Fall Outfit (6): Tie-dyed Bougainvillea

As my belly grows bigger, one thing that I can’t live without is baggy sweater dress. It is so comfortable and easy to wear, paired with a skinny belt and layered under a wool coat. Viola, my preggy fall uniform is all set. lol~~

Wish you all a great new week!

Sweater dress: Alexander McQueen for Puma, dress layered under: COS, scarf: H&M, belt: Prada, booties: Zara.

New Hermessence: Santal Massoïa

A dear friend of mine is a passionate perfume expert, she informed me a while ago that a new member of the Hermessence collection will be released in November. I was very interested because I’ve always liked the smell of santal. Last week, I finally got a chance to try this new scent in store and, I am totally in love. Besides the poetic scent of santal, it also contains a hint of coconut, which is one of my favorite fruit flavors. :-D

“Santal Massoïa is a refined fragrance of Massoïa wood resin from New Guinea (which reminds of the coconut scent, underlined with peach and butterscotch), sandalwood, sweets made of milk and dried fruits”.

Fall Outfit (5): Lazy & Relaxed

I promised a few readers that I’ll post some outfits with miss Lindy, there you go. :-) A relaxed ensemble I wore for yesterday’s brunch. Have a great new week my dear friends!

Wool poncho: Lounge Lover, necklace: COS, skirt & shoes: Marni, bag: Hermès.

Style Inspiration: Being a stylish Mom-to-Be

As some of my close friends already knew, there has been a little change in my life, which gradually affects the way I dress. However, as long as style is concerned, I still want to be true to myself in this special period of time. The only difference is I’ve been wearing more comfy clothes than tight tailored ones lately. lol~~

Well, this post is actually about a young Russian lady: Natasha Goldenberg, who has a fantastic maternity style. I adore her take on vibrant colors and cozy knits, also love how happy & confident she appears. I think that’s the most important thing during a pregnancy besides eating right & working out. ;-D

Miss Lindy

For the upcoming cold winter days, nothing is more energetic for me than a little piece of “fortune cookie” in bleu électrique. :-) Hope this picture will cheer you up too, have a fabulous weekend!

Fall Outfit (4): Encore of the white Collar ;-)

In my previous outfit post, many friends are fond of the adorable white collar, so I think this little cutie deserves another post. Hope you’ll like it.
