In today's post, I’m going to take you through all the detailed features of the bag, my first impressions and why this treasure belongs in my collection (and whether it should belong in yours too)!

WOOL BLAZER WITH ELBOW PATCHES AND RIDING BOOTS
EXAGGERATED SHOULDERS SWEATER
AND LUG SOLE BOOTS
Since the Isabel Marant’s Fall ’19 collection came out the cable-knit sweaters with relaxed fit and chunky ribbed trims that create a striking layered effect became a timeless classic. You can combine them with almost anything in your wardrobe. Any sort of exaggerated shoulder or sleeve detail will provide a really nice updated look to your basic sweater. This includes bell, puff, flounce, ruffle, and balloon sleeves or even shoulder pads! Throw it over some denim, add knee high lug sole boots, which are still popular, by the way, for some extra warmth and dimension to your everyday look.

Guess is an American clothing brand and retailer, notable for its black-and-white ads. It began in 1981 as a book of styles started by Georges, Maurice, Armand, and Paul Marciano. Shortly after that the brothers switched to selling jeans with a light, form-fitting denim and zippers at the ankles. Today Guess is offering licensed products, including watches, eyewear, jewelry, perfumes, bags and shoes.
Cessily is one of the brand’s most recognizable bags. Every season there is a huge selection of Cessily bags in all kinds of colours and materials. I, personally, am a huge fan of the model, and was really confused by this variety. In the end, I decided to get the black quilted model first, since it's the most versatile one, but as you might imagine I didn't stop there. More about that later..

A new lip colour can refresh or add a touch of glam to any style. The beauty of wearing the right shade of lipstick is that it can enhance the rest of your makeup, leaving a finished and more polished look. Applying lip colour is simple, but here are a couple extra tricks to try as well.
P.S. For my Bulgarian readers - I usually buy my M.A.C. lip products from Delirium Exclusive.

Consider this your check list for your next summer get-away.
When it comes to swimwear, I've always preferred one-piece silhouettes. Not only are they more comfortable to wear, but I also love their irresistibly classic feel, a subtle nod to style from decades past.
When selecting a new suit I try to find a fit that feels not only comfortable but also covering all the right places, so you could show off your summer glow with no worries at all.
This season has a variety of textures and prints to make finding the perfect summer swimsuit that much easier!
See below for a few of my favourites right now!
Hats have always been a staple of my summer wardrobe, both for sun protection and for style. Even the simplest outfit feels intentional and put-together when topped with a beautiful hat.
Classic and feminine, the straw hat is perfect for an afternoon stroll, especially when paired with your favourite dress.
One of my everyday staples is a classic white button down that serves as the foundation piece from which to build new looks.
Whether relaxing in the park, or heading to the beach, this classic button-up shirt is an easy throw-on piece to pair with sandals and denim shorts.
A classic shirt is always nice, but finding one with added details like a ruffled collar or embroidery is always special.
Lately, I have loved striped models perfect for the seaside, obviously.
Over the years I've collected my share of basket bags, finally whittled down last year to a hand full of favourite styles. The texture and structure in these natural fiber bags compliment a variety of looks, especially during the spring and summer months. Woven totes, in particular, offer the room to carry all of my essentials when I'm on the go.
A mini basket bag, like this one with green textile handles with little white flowers, is perfect for pairing with your favourite summer dress for an evening stroll near the beach.
A mini dress adds a relaxed, easy going style for summer, especially when paired with simple sandals or slides. Staying cool and comfortable this time of year is a definite priority, with heat and humidity on the rise. A breezy mini dress offers a great solution with minimal effort and a maximum return. Whether you are searching for a simple shirtdress, or something more romantic and/or statement-worthy, see below for the prettiest minis to wear all summer long!
A quintessential summer-time classic that looks as good in the city as it does on the beach. Whether you prefer light wash, medium wash, or dark wash, a pair of denim shorts is a timeless staple - tone it down with ugly dad sandals (a staple this summer) or your favourite white sneakers and a flower crown.
One of my biggest sources of inspiration is classic movies, so it’s no surprise that I now gravitate toward silhouettes and details that will stand the test of time. Even when I’m wearing a more simple outfit, I love adding a vintage-inspired twist with sunglasses – you’ll never find me without a pair in my bag! From cat-eye shapes to coloured frames, sunglasses can make a big statement, regardless of their price tag.
After years of over-packing I’ve finally understood that less is in fact more. What are your ultimate clothing pieces and/or accessories that you never travel without?
I love pairing those breezy summer looks with neutral sandals, like this strap pair from Deichmann. I bought them a few years ago in tan and in black and they are still my favourite sandals to wear all summer long with any one of my dresses. The leather is so soft and buttery and they’re incredibly comfortable to spend the day walking around in ( I took them with me not only in Greece, but in Venice too, and there is a lot of walking in Venice I can assure you!). I highly recommend them if you’re looking for a good traveling sandal. Plus, this tan colour is basically a neutral, so they go with everything.
