One of the most exciting events I love to attend during New York Fashion week is the fashion blogger mingle by ShopStyle. So thankful for them for getting all these beautiful creative women together to meet, to shop, to share inspirations, to enjoy NY skyline and to toast this beautiful life.

Few pictures from the event.

To shop my look: Sweater / Skirt / Chanel Shoes (similar here) / Clutch / Shearling coat is vintage Versace (not available anymore)

Year 2016 has been an amazing year for me. I am grateful for my loving family and beautiful kids, for having laughs and good times with my husband, for all inspiring destinations I traveled to, for new people who entered my life, for all friends who I enjoyed the company with. I am grateful for all internal realizations and discoveries, for all opportunities and adventures that Life grants me.  I see beauty in every day life and I want to do it all in style that is true to myself, whether it is walking the streets of a busy New York or relaxing at the beach with my kids, seeing the sunset in Tulum or running the lavender fields in Provence.

I am grateful to be able to share it and I’d like to thank you all for following along. Here are some of my favorite fashion moments in 2016. Cheers to 2017!

 

Morning is my favorite time of the day, and a weekend morning especially. I like that my mind is still clear and uncluttered from the busyness and tasks on the day. I like to make myself a nice cup of coffee and sit with the coffee book or just sit without doing anything else but simply enjoying the coffee. What I find magical in drinking coffee in the morning is that it brings me to a present moment.  What I also found over the years is that I like to drink if out of “my” cup. Over the years we all collect cups and mugs that someone gifts us or it’s part of some tea set.  If you don’t have your own cup, I suggest you get one. Whether it’s monogram one or it has an inspiring message written on it or just in the color or style that reflects you. This morning ritual of drinking coffee from your own cup will make it that much more magical. Enjoy! Happy Sunday!

Monogram Mugs from : Nordstrom / Anthropologie /

Fashionable mugs: Stripes mug / Gold dots mug /

But if you really need to run and have a coffee mug accompany you through your busy day, consider these travel mugs:

“But First Coffee” mug / “Chic Happens” mug / Boss Lady /

To complement: Coffee Books / Trays / Notebook

Holiday party season is on and it’s my favorite time of the year. For me it all starts with office holiday parties, followed by Christmas celebration at home with my family and then New Years party with my friends. I’ll share with you some of my looks and where I shop.

For office holiday party you can always wear a classic black dress and accessorize it with a nice necklace and a clutch, or you can try wearing different textures like velvet and metallic pleats.

Shop the look: My velvet blazer is vintage by La Roc and maybe too open for the office but similar from Jcrew and TopShop

Pleated skirt from Asos  or NastyGal or Zara

I won’t step a foot to any store, doing it all online in the comfort of my home, with a nice cup of coffee in my hands 😉

It’s the morning of Thanksgiving day. I am slowly sipping my coffee with a luxurious piece of pecan pie, staring out of the window and I feel in this moment that I am complete. I open up my laptop and my fingers start typing. I want to give thanks. Thanks to this beautiful world, to my life, to my family, to my husband and my beautiful kids, to my friends and followers, to all people that crossed my path and who inspired me, for all experiences that I had and for those yet to come. And most of all, I want to thank “myself” for feeling this way, for knowing the difference between what’s important and what is not, for listening to my intuition, for having my own voice, for being able to inspire whoever finds me inspiring.

I don’t have a wish list this holiday season. I just want to thank for all that already is.

Hope you all have something to be thankful for.

Love, Elena
