This maxi dress was love on first sight. The batik print won me over. I also love the colors and silhouette. It's got open lace at the back and slits on two sides that are just the right height - perfect for the hot summer weather. I am wearing it with my vintage straw box basket - a fun play to mix shape and proportion with my maxi dress. And of course strappy sandals. Happy hump day.

Belgian 1930s Brick Home

Dwell recently published an article about how a Belgian couple renovated their 1930s brick home. I have to share when I saw the result which is this chic contemporary home. You might know by now that I am a historical house enthusiast. I love how they preserved the period details (such as the archway, the medallion ceiling and the exposed beams). They blend very stylishly with the modern elements of the home. I have to say my favorite is the living room. Which one is yours?

Happy Monday. To beat the heat, I am in my airy flimsy lounge pants today. I am pairing them with my equally airy sleeveless top layered with a sleeveless vest. You might see tan lines on my arms -- which I got from being in the sun few weeks ago. Any ideas how to even them out? Meanwhile, stay cool - and don't forget to sunbathe properly :)

Some black and white eye candy to get through Thursday. It's only one day before the end of the week.... Happy Thursday!



If you follow me, you might know by now that I like oversize slouchy clothes. This outfit is another evidence to that. Trapeze silhouette is a favorite of mine. It is free flowing and so not restrictive. I am wearing it now in my favorite colors - the no-fuss black and white. I hope you're enjoying Thursday. 1 more day till the weekend.

French By Design shared this charming summer residence in the Greek island of Skyros. George Carabellas, a Greek entrepreneur, used this place as his summer retreat and also opened it as a maison d'hotes. After seeing these pictures, I'd very much rather be in Greece now.

I love how it perfectly blends the concept of indoor and outdoor living. Imagine waking up to this beautiful view, natural light and fresh air. Paradise.

I also love this efficiency kitchen and the beautiful tiles on the terrace. The outdoor garden is perfect for those summer gatherings.

Beautiful alleys. I think I could live here forever....

And this view.... this is the reason why Greece is known for its beauty. I have a terrible travel bug now and I have now put Greece in my list of places to visit. I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I do.



I hope you all had a great 4th of July weekend. I am welcoming Monday in an all white outfit. Great color to beat the summer heat. I love how this dress has a sheer panel and two side cutouts on the hemline. Nice details which give the dress some extra airiness. Happy Monday -- stay cool and airy.
