The Chihuly Museum has to be my favorite background for pictures that I encountered this vacation. The playful colors and shapes are mesmerizing. It's inspiring to see what Dale Chihuly has created, actually it's magical and pictures don't manage to do it justice. This was one of the places I had carefully planned to visit and shoot in. To honor the captivating creations I choose a playful dress with asymmetric cuts and patch-like fabrics combing pastel colors. 

My summer styling has been quite feminine combing pastel with white-ivory shades in light weight and flowing fabrics. I adore structured pieces even for the warmer months, but I've felt a stronger pull towards ruffled chiffon flowing dresses this season. Every time I see street-style pictures of bloggers wearing flowing dresses I can't help but to fall in love and dream of ways to shoot such a fabulous piece. 

Another must have for the summer that has made its way in my heart have been the slingback shoes. I've loved the original Chanel slingback almost from the beginning, however had a harder time warming up to the dupes and similar styles other brands created. Though I must admit to  loving the Dior slingbacks also from start. After purchasing the pair featured in this post I fell in love with the style. Not only are they flattering, but they are also comfortable and chic. 

How do you feel about slingback shoes?

This summer has been the one for shirt dresses. They've been visible everywhere from blogs to glossy magazines to social media. Thankfully you can find them at different price ranges varying in colors, fabrics and cuts. Basically you'll be able to find one that's perfect for you. In this post I'll share some inspiration just in case you're still looking for the perfect shirt dress or simply another one to add to your wardrobe.

This post comes as proof of how much I've embraced florals and fun patterns, as I mentioned in my 27 - reflective editorial post. I love how fun and bright this kimono is, but also how much it feels like my style. This is something that about a year and a half ago wouldn't have been possible. It's fun to reflect just how much personal style can evolve. The floral kimono was perfect against the urban Seattle sceneries, creating a beautiful contrast. 

In what way has your style evolved?

I fell in love with Seattle in less than a day. The energy the city has is addicting and the sceneries are unbeatable, gorgeous lake with a mountain view mixed with an eclectic city. My absolute favorite experience was visiting the Chihuly Museum, which I'll touch base on more in posts to come. For now watch the video below and prepare to fall in love with this diverse city and its breathtaking views.

My style and blog have bloomed a lot this past year, something I'm really proud of as I've put more effort and heart into them. The imagery has changed a lot, from the art of shooting to the editing together with more colorful, creative and expressive looks. If we have a glance at today's post compared to last year's posts, you'll easily notice the difference in style. The images have become brighter and more playful including diverse sceneries. The same is to be noticed about the outfits, I've started experimenting more adding patterns and bright colors. You probably also observed more reflective-motivational and inspirational posts, not just outfit talks. My blog will continue to grow and change as I do. 

For those following my Instagram, chances are you saw the change in my description to "Be the inspiration you seek in the world". These are words I now try to live by. In my opinion they are a good code to follow from both a creative point of view as well as a human one. For me they include artistic and visionary views as well as kind and compassionate ones. 27 is a good age to "implement" a new code. Did you know 27 is the age I've been most excited for and have anticipated the most as I have turned 27 on the 27th of June?! It sounds silly, but I found happiness in the little detail of it, so I am determined to make this the best year so far. I don't know what it will hold in all aspects of my life, but I will make this little space the best it has been. My blog will be a place you go to for inspiration, a good read and beautiful imagery - everything I look for in other blogs, a place that moves you - that has an impact. Make sure to come back for more exciting posts. 

Have you enjoyed the growth of my blog? What would you like to see in this space?

I went crazy in Sephora and bought everything, then decided to share all these amazing products with you guys. Sephora is like a little make-up and skincare heaven where you're being rewarded for giving away all your money. Ahaha I've stocked up on a lot of skincare products, as they are my priority, but also might have gotten my hands on a few make-up bits. Check out the video to see what I purchased and show the video some love. Also, it's my birthday! 🎂 Wooohooo! Check out my Instagram stories if you wanna see what I was up to.

Welcome to Seattle babes, a city surrounded by water, mountains and forests. Seattle was one of our favorite stops on this US trip and I'm sure in the following posts you will discover why and fall in love with the city as well. It has one of the most gorgeous sceneries we saw on this trip and as luck with have it gorgeous weather, which apparently is rare. Also, it happens to be home to Amazon,  Microsoft and Starbucks. 

Now Seattle has good coffee beyond Starbucks, but obviously I wanted to try it in the original Starbucks store. Needless to say I drank a lot of coffees daily. Don't mean to disappoint anyone, but in case you were thinking of visiting the OG, Starbucks tastes the same everywhere so don't expect anything out of the ordinary from their original shop. There is one Starbucks shop worth visiting, which I'll talk about in a following blog post. 

Back to the landscape. The view from the space needle is breathtakingly beautiful and I'm happy we decided to go up, but in case you don't want to spend your money on it an equally beautiful view you can get from a boat ride or just from the waterfront admiring the mountains. The bubble gum wall is also quite fun to stop by and snap a colorful picture.

Have you visited Seattle?

Have a pink-tastic day!
