Back in November I got carried away with that great, warm weather that, funny enough, had coincided with the pick of the fall foliage and I took so many photoshoots to cover not just the autumn season but probably half of the winter too. So here’s another post, in matching gingham print with my little Caroline.

Checks or Plaid are never out of style, it is a classic pattern. In today's post, I have not one but two plaid patterns (small and big) in a black, white, red color combination. As you can see this bag makes an appearance again since it goes so well with everything. Bold red lips are always a great finishing touch and give a vivid bust to any look. Voila!
A while ago I shared Here a list of all my favorite striped pieces for Summer. Today I am wearing stripes and probably you recognize this vintage dress because is not the first time wearing it on the blog. Once again, I am not shy mixing patterns in one outfit, and today I tried stripes + checks, green and red colors with a side of a mini straw bag (the must-have Summer accessory from Pamela Munson). You can never go wrong with Stripes in the Summer, right? Voila!
Because GINGHAM pattern can be seen everywhere this Summer, my previous post was all about it. I searched and found even more lovely pieces that I had to dedicate a full post to it - all gingham. Does anything catch your eyes?
I have always said that a monochrome outfit looks even better with a pop of color (of your choice). I chose YELLOW this time because it is well-known "I Have A Thing With Yellow"... but if you will ask me for at least two other options, my answer is Red and Green. I like to call this bag "Hello Sunshine" and is from the same creative designer Toino Abel, whose work I support and recommend. You can never have too many straw bags for the Summer season, right?
You know that I am traveling weekly to Philadelphia. Last week we did a trip and stayed there for a couple of days and starting with today's post I am going to share all the details. The first look was this casual chic jeans - shirt combination. This shirt is from Zara, a really great piece that I intend to wear in 2 ways. This is one way and the next one will be backward, because why not taking full advantage of the versatile design. If you see something different with the sleeves from the original design it is because I made a change! I opened all the pins on the sleeves since I prefer big puffy sleeves instead of pleated sleeves and I find it simpler this way.
Voila! Next post will be about our hotel/room we stayed in and another outfit. Stay tuned!

I still have a couple more posts from Newport to publish but today I want to share with you a look that I wore last week. I'm kinda gingham addicted lately and here in today's post, I'm wearing this beautiful white-nude dress from Marks & Spencer paired with nothing else than bright yellow heels. And again a straw bag and best Summer accessories - fresh tulips-. Definitely my kinda summer uniform!

We enjoy spending time outdoors by visiting public gardens as well as hanging out in our own garden at home. Here are some shots from one Sunday when we brought the garden set under this lovely floral tree, and enjoyed cold drinks. The floral pitcher & glasses are vintage and lately I purchased a few floral sets like this which can only mean I am planing to spend more time outdoors because this is the season of garden parties & picnics. The beautiful ramie floral dress is from one of my favorite lately discovered brands and you have seen me wearing another piece from them, the one from Caroline's birthday seen Here. So, yes it is a floral celebration all over again!
I have another recapitulation for you today, this time: mommy and me matching outfits from past year. I’m hoping to continue this matching chapter with Caroline in 2021 but for now I'll leave these looks here for you to enjoy.
The 2020 favorite outfits recap is here! Year after year I do this kind of post highlighting my most loved looks, and there are plenty outfits that I will wear again. I loved being in the middle of nature season after season with just a few escapes in the city (starting from march). I look forward to see what this year will offer us. As always, we can only hope that this new year is better, not just for me but for everyone. I am also grateful for all the good that happened (yes, there are great things that happened too), and grateful for you and your support for another year! Happy New Year to you and yours!
