I survived January! And since last weekend temperatures in London are finally more pleasant with rare spells of sunshine. Certainly, it’s not the time yet to start hoping for spring but the girl can dream a little bit. I used the opportunity to take my new ripped jeans out of the closet. I’ve been searching for the perfect high waisted light washed jeans for AGES now! But then I found heaven on ASOS. So these jeans are coming in few different colours, with busted knee or without, tall or petite and they are probably the most amazing jeans that I ever had. I wore the jeans with my favourite jumper this winter which can be seen on me at least once a week.

For a while now, pleated skirts are every girl’s must have item. Have to say, I was a little bit skeptic about it because literally I never wore a skirt that covers my knees. I though it will make me look like my grandma, considering I mostly wear flat shoes.
So, the skirt was regularly avoided in every shop until recently when I was browsing through ASOS, as usual trying to spend money on things that I don’t need. This skirt looked so pretty that I didn’t care about price, especially not length. I’m wearing it now with ankle boots but it will look great on sandals or heels or even ballet flats.
I just can’t be more happy about it.
Another obsession at the moment is velvet. I managed to avoid the trap of buying expensive velvet dresses, trousers or coats which will be out of fashion probably by the end of this year and opted for safer option – accessories and boots.
These boots are from Dorothy Perking and I love the fact that they are actually navy blue but depending on the light they are changing color and sometimes look black.
Velvet bag has a long story. It’s been sold out in burgundy and black for a long time now. I managed to hunt down last one at Topshop sale last week after looking for it literally everywhere! Great cure for January depression!

After discovering Syon House and Garden earlier this year I just keep coming back. Not many know about this place, probably because it’s a secluded, all the way in the zone 5, London Borough of Hounslow, and it’s used mainly as a wedding venue.
I’ve never been a model but I love the process of taking the pictures and rushing home to edit them. That’s why it wasn’t a problem for me to wake up early on Sunday morning and go to this magical place with my friend before other people start coming. We were lucky because it was a beautiful sunny and warm September day.
Walking around and enjoying only birds and squirrels, I couldn’t stop thinking about all the people who use to lived there, and some still do ( house is owned by Duke of Northumberland).I was feeling like I’m in a fairytale, most possibly because of tulle with gold embroidery I finally found!

Many people visited Borough Market but you can’t say you actually been there until you visit it on Saturday early morning, without tourists, crowd and noise.
It’s so peacefull and you can actually see all of its beauty rather than bumping into people.
If you’re a foodie, Borough Market is heaven.They have everything you could possibly wish for.From grocery stalls, piled high with fresh produce to artisanal bakeries,deli shops to most important, street food stalls.
I got up last Saturday way too early for me and went for a stroll with my friend
If you think you don’t need flowers, you will change your mind when you see this cute place.
Anyone for some delicious fruits?
And lots of good looking stalls…
Who would resist and not have sneaky little treat…or two
I’m so glad that, even though summer is almost finished, new collections on the high street are still colourful.
As soon as I saw this skirt I knew that this is the item that will keep me cheerful during cold autumn days.
And of course, everyone needs cute little bee bag, right?

Sometimes it’s just worth it to travel around London just to get that perfect dress and that was the case with this one. In four days it basically disappeared from all Topshop stores including online. Luckily,one was waiting just me.
As you may notice this dress looks similar to Revolve red dress with small stars, seen on many bloggers this summer, which is probably why this cheaper model from Topshop gained so much popularity . I simply fell in love with this dress! Maybe the reason is that is so easy to wear, no need for much accessories or maybe because wrap gave me so much desired waist.
I’ve used the opportunity of few days of summer in London to make most of it.
On this Sunday I met my friend for brunch. We chose Refinery Southwark, a retro-chic cafe and cocktail bar just the short walk from Tate Moder. Once inside you will see the funky decor with industrial lighting, the bar on the one side and restaurant like area on the other side. From the big list of cocktails and food, I chose classics mojito, chicken and kale caesar and for dessert Raspberry Panna Cotta which all was delicious and worth coming back
Throw back to beginning of my summer holidays. I’m wearing a t shirt made by Lola Tees, brand from Ljubuski,Bosnia and Herzegovina .Behind the name are two girls Jelena Dzolic and Helena Bilic who managed to become popular thanks to Instagram and Facebook. They are creating statement t shirts with popular hashtag # and funny phrases which are hard translatable to English unfortunately

This dress I got from Abercrombie & Fitch year ago when I was still thinking that London actually has summer! Year later I’m wearing this dress second time and second time in Croatia. Why London,why?!
Anyway, this dress was love at first and even though it’s tiny and really summery and I will not have much chance to wear it,I’m happy that I have it in my closet because of this great Croatian summer nights
Dress: Abercrombie&Fitch ; Bag: Accessorize ; Bracelets: Handmade; Shoes: New Look
Finally I left cloudy London for 2 weeks holiday back home in Croatia. Last week in London was especially cold and I couldn’t wait to take off all my clothes(in Croatia is 35 degrees ).
Now I have 14 days to wear all the clothes I’m keeping in my closet for the rest of the year.
I’m a fan of tan bags and shoes and usually I always choose brown over black.Tan colour looks great on tanned skin as well and I like to pair it with pink

Kingston is that part of London that isn’t really London but it’s is because it’s apparently Zone 6…Never mind,it’s still great.It has river walks with amazing views, Ancient Market which is there for last 800 years,lots of shops and restaurants and…this unique phone boots.
Last weekend I went to my first Indian wedding and it was so nice and different.Venue and the weather were amazing and I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately I didn’t wear sari but I fell in love with this dress.
