I think I’m a little bit addicted to pretty scarves, as soon as I spotted this gorgeous red and white stripy scarf I knew that it will be in my closet very soon:) And I didn’t forget about you, I got beautiful Anne Klein scarf that you can win in the Giveaway this Friday! This maxi dress caught my eye because of the stripes (daaah:) and the stretchy fabric. I think it’s one of my favorites now, at the end of the day, what makes an item so special and unique? The most important for me is when the item makes me feel elegant and comfy even with the huge baby bump:) How about you girls, what is your favorite piece this season?


Красивые шарфы это моя слабость,  как только я увидела этот яркий шарфик я уже знала что очень скоро он окажется в моей гардеробной:) И конечно же я не забыла о вас, в эту Пятницу вы можете выиграть шикарный шарф от Anne Klein.  Это макси приглянулось мне конечно же из за принта и эластичной ткани. Это одно из тех платьев в котором я себя ощущаю стильно и комфортабельно, даже со своим пузиком:) А у вас есть любимая вещь в этом сезоне?

  • I’m all about mixing patterns and colors, and stripes on stripes is one of my favorites. I love how you paired the two. You are just too cute, you look as elegant as that dress makes you feel. My favorite piece this season (so far) is my new shirt dress from banana reprublic.
