Las Vegas By Night

I took another one-day trip to Las Vegas recently and stayed in the wonderful Vdara hotel. From the window of my suite on the 51st floor on one side I could see the famous Fountains of Bellagio, the Eiffel Tower replica of Paris Hotel and a little of Las Vegas Strip.

On the other side I could see pretty much the rest of Las Vegas with shiny and colorful Hotel Rio, where World Series of Poker is currently taking place.

Cardigan Fix?

Did you ever think of using the scarf as a cardigan? The McQueen scarf, that has already saved the situation in my casual look, helped me again in creating a nice cardigan over my Denny Rose dress.

A Walk in Greystone Mansion Park

It's very hard to imagine that in the heart of Beverly Hills you can find a Los Angeles copy of Versailles. Although this is an exaggerated comparison, the place is very much worth seeing. The Greystone Mansion Park is quite hard to find and that is what makes it so beautiful and intimidating. Although it has been used in a lot of film productions, it is still a very intimate public park, which I like to visit when I need to feel like a real lady of the 19th century or just escape the hectic life of Los Angeles.

Casual Charm

For a walk in the park, I wanted to wear something very casual and comfy, but just a plain t-shirt and jeans seemed too simple. A scarf saved the situation and made me look casual but fashionable, what do you think? ;)

Nespresso Love

One of my favorite parts of the day is my Nespresso break in the middle of the day. When it's past lunch-time and I feel a little tired, the best way for me to get an extra boost of energy is to enjoy a quick espresso shot. What do you do to keep your energy up?

Sometimes small things make you happier...

I never understood how small presents could make people happy, but today I received this as a gift and got completely overwhelmed by it. It's a small box of chocolates in a form of a vase with flowers from K Chocolatier. What small things make you happy?

Casual Look

Even though I do own a lot of heels, it doesn't mean that I don't like flat shoes. I understand how important it is to give rest to your feet, and try to do it in a stylish way. This is one of my casual looks. As you have noticed I really like blazers. I believe they bring this touch of elegance to a simplicity of a casual outfit.
Blazer: Zara
T-shirt: Banana Republic
