The perfect Disneyland dress I found too late



This is probably my favourite dress in my current collection of Eshakti dresses and I found it just a bit late for our trip to Disneyland in Spring. The red is such a beautiful rich color and works really well with my hair color. The dots are actually stitched on and not printed which made me hope for longevity. We will see about that as some ends seem to be just a tad loose. Other than that the fabric seems a little bit wrinkled because of the sewing, which then give some kind of structured look to the loose skirt fabric. I actually don't mind it and don't need to iron it as much for this reason. This dress is so nice in quality even though it is a bit tricky to wash with the white trim on the sash. I still love it and maybe we need to go to Disneyland once again now to take it for a spin there :) ! Wore this outfit for my sister's Disney-themed Birthday party, so it did get to see some Disney already.



What I wore

Dress: Eshakti
Shoes: Deichmann
Bag: gift, Primark

Cute little photo bomber! Sisu, our cat, has gotten so big. She is no kitten any longer. But still so cute.

Marine Chic


Twice a year is the biggest time for sales and I do try to stay away from them as best I can. Still, the promotion emails show up and one gets tempted to buy new things. This happens especially with me and vintage reproduction brands. Most of them are quite affordable, but I do like the UK-based brands Vivien of Holloway and Collectif. They produce in the UK and the products seem good quality and well made. They are pricey though and with shipping, it adds up. I often shop only during the sales and this year I got lucky with this amazing peplum blazer. I got my great winter coat and lots of cardigans as wardrobe staples, but I was missing a fitted blazer to wear with all my dresses. Here, I paired it with one of my dresses from Eshakti, my other sale weakness. It seems that every dress I currently wear comes from that brand. Their deals are great and I get tempted quite often. This black dress for example is a great staple to have. I might have to get it in another color combination soon. Wore this look for a family birthday lunch and felt well dressed.

Paris 2018 - Disney Studios Park


For our second day at Disneyland Paris, we decided to go to the Studios Park for most of the day and just went to Disneyland for the Fireworks. I wore my Vixen by Micheline Pitt skirt and felt dressed appropriately, more 50s diner style and less french chic.




Live Music!


What I wore

Jacket, Scarf & Bag: Primark
Top: Lindex
Tights: Esda
Shoes: Deichmann
Pins & Ears: Disney Store
Shades: Ray Ban




I met my girl Minnie Mouse! I am not one to stand in line for lots of character meet ups. Mr.B gets bored as well and we wanted to enjoy the time together. We actually met lots of our favourite characters during our last visit when we ate at Mickey's CafĂ© and I felt ok with not meeting any this time, but when the line for Minnie was that short (20min wait), I had to meet her. 


We went on all the rides that were new and saw the Mickey the Magician show - so cute!! Also walked by while Goofie, Mickey and Pluto had their meet-ups. Just took a quick photo of each of them.





My favourite ride - the flying carpets! The app said sth about 20min wait, so not true! More like 60min. The update needs to get better and we were really done after waiting that long.




The action show was the highlight of the day! We loved it!!! Definitely something for the guys.

Little white summer dress


It is the first weekend of September and I am just now getting around to posting some of my favourite summer looks. This dress has been a dream. I have been looking for a white dress with eyelet pattern that is not strapless or with spagetti straps. I ended up making my own one at Eshakti. Definitely a new favourite, but nothing for work, as I am afraid to drop whiteboard markers on it. Also am wearing my new round basket bag with this look. 



What I wore

Dress: Eshakti, customized dress pattern and fabric
Jacket: Primark
Bag: Zara
Shoes: Deichmann, old
Pins: Disney Store
Necklace: heirloom, Bernstein

Paris 2018 - Disneyland Day I


What I wore

Dress: Eshakti
Denim Jacket, Sweater, Scarf, Bag: Primark
Shades: Ray Ban
Tights: Esda
Shoes: Deichmann
Ears & Pins: Disney Store


We had visited Paris and Disneyland 2016 and we both loved it there! Last time we only had one day at Disneyland and the Studios and both felt that this was not enough time to see everything. Also, the two parks had been under major constructions during that visit and a lot of attractions had been closed for renovations. For our 7th anniversary (and because we are skipping the summer vacation due to our house renovations) we booked a 5 day trip to Paris and this time booked a 3-day pass for both parks, which gave us plenty of time to enjoy all the rides that we loved and the ones we hadn't tried before. I had picked a couple of my favourite outfits especially for this trip and here is my first look. This black and white Eshakti dress screams Paris to me and it is made of such a comfortable material that is fuss-free and since then has been one of my go-to work outfits. My trusty denim jacket is perfect for all the looks and worked so well during this warm and sunny trip with cold and windy mornings where layers had been key. The Minnie Mouse bag by Primark had been such an amazing accessory and I got several people asking about it. 




One place I really wanted to visit was Adventureland and all its' attractions as they had been closed off in 2016. We loved all the roller coasters (Big Thunder Mountain was awesome!!), but I really enjoyed the Pirates of the Caribbean and La Cabane des Robinson. We did try to see all the things still on our list, but had to miss out on some re-rides as the time was just not enough. I was especially sad about Le Carrousel de Lancelot, Dumbo the Flying Elephant and the Mad Hatter's Tea Cups (which was closed this time). Due to my injured back, I had to stay away from a lot of the 360° roller coasters, but I enjoyed every second of our time in Disneyland!! Stay tuned for more looks and snapshots from our stay in Paris.
