the maxi dress

What better outfits to pack for the Mediterranean than a heap of maxi dresses - preferably white and perforated - just like these by Valentino. Simple, chic, romantic and just plain lovely.

the flared jeans

Shopping was an inevitable, and enjoyable, part of our NYC trip. My mother spotted an awesome pair of white flared jeans by Stella McCartney at Intermix, and without much hesitation I tried it on. After that moment, I seem to see flared jeans every where. I love my skinny jeans and they will not be leaving my closet any time soon; but a pair of flares can of course be added. Have you added one to your wardrobe already?

a challenge

Preparation is key with anything I believe, and enthusiasm is vital. Though challenges (in this specific case, presentations in front of large audiences) are usually not easy (and they tend to keep you up at night), I do believe that they make you better in the end.

To calm things down - have you seen this gorgeous dress by Jason Wu? Am loving it.
