While some people may have problems committing I can proudly say that I’ve not only committed once (to my husband) but twice, to sneakers, which incidentally happens to be the longest relationship of my life. It doesn’t matter if they are the trend of the season or not, I’ve always preferred sneakers over everything, day or night, summer or winter. And because I’m not a trend shopper when it comes to sneakers I’m very picky in choosing only comfortable, cool and timeless pairs: like the Stuart Weitzman SW-612.
The key points making them the perfect pair: extra comfy light suede that makes socks obsolete, the white rubber sole detail that gives it the extra touch, perfect cut at the ankle with a leather-wrapped elastic ruching detail that enhances the ankle (and makes legs look super long and flattering) so on and so forth… They come in 5 colors, either leather or suede and more good news is that these are not the only sneaker design Stuart Weitzman has. Now it’s time to get the other ones and start praying that winter doesn’t come soon…

Anyone who’s been following me for some time (or even people who just found out about me, really) can easily see my love for combat boots. They literally take up more than half of my winter wardrobe, however I never stop there and I keep on wearing them even in summer time. Besides being the most comfortable things ever, they also give me a sense of badass confidence that I can’t compare with anything else.
I’ve already had many different pairs of black combat boots but a white pair had been missing for a long time – I guess I was waiting for the perfect one – and I finally found Stuart Weitzman Lexy. I’ve always loved the rugged sexiness of Stuart Weitzman boots and owned a couple of pairs (including the legendary Lowland), but this one has to be my all time favorite.
I don’t know if it’s the signature SW metal ring grommets, the black long laces or the perfect mid-calf length but I already started wearing it with everything, starting with a midaxi leopard dress and a cropped patent black jacket. My dream fall outfit complete, at last. You can shop the boots here.

I have to admit that even though I’m tired of fashion month just by sitting on my couch (attending the craze for even just a week was enough for me) and that I don’t really enjoy seeing the same faces over and over again on the street style scene, especially when I know that among the attendees there are always lot more stylish and unique people that I wish would get photographed, I still always look forward to the street style of Paris. As it’s the fashion capital of the world and the grand finale to all fashion weeks, people knowingly or unknowingly save their best looks for Paris and I love stocking up on inspiration for the next 6 months. Spoiler alert, stop reading this post now if you don’t want your savings to tank – all these looks are good for the soul, bad for the wallet.
Milan, the city of extremely well dressed elderly and unbelievably boring youth that suddenly (and luckily) goes into hiding during fashion week and making way for stylish crowds. That’s all I learned in my year living there; don’t expect to be inspired by anyone unless it’s one of the fashion months but if it is, just enjoy the very colorful ride.
Besides being official partners, SHOPBOP is one of the websites I shop from the most (and needless to say my wishlist is longer than an IKEA slip, filled with hundreds of gorgeous goodies I can mostly only look at but hey, that’s why they’re called WISH lists) so when there’s a sale, I feel like it’s my duty to tell you about it and share that said wishlist with you so you can buy everything I can’t.
