A dress and the sea

Hi everyone!

I hope you all are doing great and you’re having a nice week so far.

Not like I am feeling homesick. But I must confess, with the glorious weather we’ve had in London for the past few days I found myself using the words “seaside”, “beach” and “Spain” rather frequently over the past 48 hours.

It was yesterday, while I was wearing this very summery dress, that I became aware of this fact. I couldn’t help but remember the last time I wore this floral silk piece in Spain, during my last summer holidays.


Polka dots – Outfit of the day

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all having a nice week so far!

I have a confession to make today: I absolutely love LISTS. Some of them include: “things to do with my (future) boyfriend”, “things to do with a complete stranger”, “things to do when I move in my own flat”, “crazy things I want to do and try before I die”, “places I want to travel to”, “ideas to help make other people’s life better”, “birthday present ideas” and “things that make me happy”.

I wanted to concentrate on the latter: “things that make me happy”. One of the items from this list includes taking a relaxing bath, right after lighting vanilla candles around me. I like playing cheesy music in the background and go through the  month’s Vogue magazine issue to find inspiration. I like to think of it as “me quality time”. In addition, I absolutely love watching beautiful photographs. And fashion magazines have quite a few.

There was one special article I found on last month’s issue about polka dots and it absolutely inspired me to dress up to see a londoner friend in South Kensington for a brunch.

Two different people, two different personalities

Hi everyone!

I hope you are doing great and you are all having a nice week so far.

A few days ago, I was putting some order into my chaotic underwear drawer. My flatmate (also one of my dearest friends) came in and witnessed this moment where I was classifying everything with extra care and by colours. I remember her reaction being “I find it really funny that you have a lot of pink and white going on in here. I rarely wear pink. I really like that people who are so close and have so much in common have different preferences with these kind of small personal details”.

Today’s post is about friendship and about contrasting personalities. For that, I used the kind help of a very classy close friend of mine who popped by London for a few days. (No, not my flatmate).

Let me introduce you to Patricia.


Outfit ideas – timeless fashion

Hi everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful week.

I found myself surrounded by many thrilling new beginnings in my life: I just started a new job that will allow me to have free weekends to spend more time with my baby (that is my little blog, Mind the Shoes), I happen to have met new wonderful people, I just acquired new pieces for my closet and I have set new -and quite ambitious- life goals for myself. It is in moments like this very one that I realise how exciting life can be.

Today’s look is inspired by my mum.
