Colors Of Mediterranean.

Monday, July 23, 2018

The gorgeous purple-pink color of bougainvillea flower bush near my home in Barcelona is always the first sign of Summer for me. It reminds me of Greek Island Santorini and it's gorgeous blues, whites with touches od bougainvillea pinks or our Summer destination Dubrovnik, it's stone walls and wraths of bougainvillea framing front entrances to peoples homes. 

This #ootd was indeed inspired by this color combination and is hopefully sharing Mediterranean Summer colors and feel. 


After eyeing it for weeks I finally got this mini Self Portrait white lace dress with peplum trim and strappy back. As a mother of a toddler I rarely dare to wear white so for this Summer I made a conscious effort to add some white pieces to my Summer wardrobe. I was thinking I would wear this dress to one or two celebrations but I ended up wearing it a whole lot more.

My favorite things about this dress are that although it is not bra friendly it holds your girls just fine without a bra or any other support or a tape for that matter as the material is very rigid and firm.  The waist is taken in and gives you pretty curvy shape emphasized with peplum trimming.


My black and white Zac Posen handbag has been featured in many posts already. I want to be very realistic with my #ootd's. Although white this handbag is my go-to bag for business meetings and also for strolls with my toddler. It has enough of space for a laptop and a spare nappy + all the other essentials I keep carrying around with me.

Because it is almost all white it does require a gentle cleaning with leather cream cleaner but I anyways wipe clean all my leather accessory once a month so this bag is no exception.


A perfect pop of color (other than the lipstick) for any outfit comes from pointy toe kitten heel sandals by Sam Edelman. Looking at my shoe closet I often feel bad I don't wear more often all those beauties I invested my money in for years.

This is why I decided not to compromise comfort for beauty when shopping for shoes in order to get to wear each pair more often. These sandals are super comfortable and haven't given me blisters not even the first time I wore them.
