Sylvia's Sparkles: July 2014

Thursday, 31 July 2014


 Tee: Nordstrom | Pants: J.Crew | Shoes: (old from france no brand) | Sunnies: Karen Walker | Necklace: My mother's 

I love those J.Crew pants they are so comfy and so fashionable for this summer. Florals are popular and they are everywhere. I sometimes wear them with a neon yellow cashmere but I find they go even better with all black ... 

My parents have left after a week of running around the city and discovering new places and new restaurants. It is now time for some cleaning and some serious catch up on projects and maybe enjoy a few quiet days next week for our one year anniversary ... 

Tomorrow if friday yayyyyyyyyy!!

Red town

 I wore this cute little Asos dress on saturday for a stroll in Chelsea with the family it was perfect for the weather and super comfy and floaty, grab a clutch and you are out of the door easy breezy ...
I said I wanted a red background because of my red nails and just in front of our building I had given up on finding the right place to shoot and then Lewis said 'well red boxes and red buses are kinda red' 
well spotted my man 

Dress: OOS (this one is the same in maternity collection not sure the difference considering it's a rather floaty dress) Asos | Necklace: old Anthropologie | Clutch: old Zara

Brunch is one of my favourite meal, maybe because it involves weekends and loads of sugar and avocado toasts ... We had both our families at home on sunday and it was really lovely ... You know when you spend so much time cooking and then it gets so busy and crazy you actually end up not eating anything ... well that's what happened to me but I can assure you everything looked yummy :) 

Have a nice day!

Monday blues

Shirt: Banana republic (similar) | Jeans: Joe's | Espadrilles: Soludos | Necklace: Oliver Bonas | Bag: Coach 

Hi everyone, hope you all had a lovely weekend! My family is in London for a week so we went for a nice stroll in Chelsea and yesterday we had a fabulous brunch with my family and the in laws!
It has been very hot lately in the city but friday was a rather wet day and we had thunder all day so a pair of jeans was my only option :) I love blue I guess everyone knows that but a pop of red makes it even better! 

 I hate mondays to be honest I only spend some quality time with the hubby over the weekend so mondays are rather hard!

Pink as a fleur

Sweatshirt: Whistles | Skirt: Vintage no brand similar  | Necklace: J.Crew | Lipstick: Nars Schiap

A quick hello in between painting my flat and cleaning it before my family arrives for a whole week! I will keep posting as usual I will actually hire my parents to take the photos this week ;) 

Hope everyone is having a fab week in this heat! I love this pink skirt it's rather bright but fun for any occasion I wanted to keep it a little bit edgy so a sweatshirt was perfect for that!

City girl

 I just love walking in the city, we shot this last weekend on sunday and it was every so quiet it's just perfect if you want to be surrounded by tall and beautiful buildings but without the stress of tourists or people shopping all around you ... 

Navy and pink are a favourite combination of mine, I just adore blue in general I actually have to talk myself out of buying everything in blue ... A bit of pink never killed anyone right? I used to hate pink in high school so let's admit that I wasn't for 'on wednesday we wear pink' but with the year I just fell in love with it ...

The brighter the better 

 Shirt: Gap, similar | Jeans: J.Brand | Shoes: J.Crew | Bag: Longchamp | Bracelet: J.Crew | Watch: Michael Kors | Nails and lips: Chanel spring 2014

I bet you are all looking forward to the weekend with this gorgeous weather (all we need is rain to ruin the weekend) don't you just agree that everyday the weather is amazing and when the weekend arrives it just happens to rain ... Really like really?
Well let's hope that we have a gorgeous weekend for myself I have a BBQ on saturday and sunday it's either beach or watching films after films if it rains ...
