New week, new ideas and big smiles! I am sooo excited that in just a few days I can officially say ‘Bye, Bye, winter! Hello, spring!’ Whenever the sun is out I have so much energy and a huge smile on my face. With the spring mood on, I needed to add a splash of colour to my outfit and so I’ve chosen this so beautifully coloured scarf. It seemed to create the perfect contrast with the black dress.

Since I am in love with my new Ted Baker shoes, I couldn’t help it and took them out for a stroll again… They just go with everything, from jeans to dresses and add a feminine touch to any outfit. As for the floppy hat, I just felt it added that little extra to the whole look. Is a hat a playful accessory or a necessity? If you ask me, I would say both. I’ve always enjoyed wearing hats, be it when I needed that chic touch or just to keep warm. So feel free to indulge yourself from time to time… be it with a hat, shoes or just an amazing dress that you can’t resist…

Milan Fashion Week is over and if you have a look at the A/W 2014 collections presented by designers such as Roberto Cavalli, D&G, Giorgio Armani, Gucci and Versace to name but a few, you’ll find that a variety of choices have been made available. From collections focused around only one colour, to fur, lace, silk, jewelled clothes and many more, I believe any fashionista’s tastes are being met.

PS: "A hat is the badge of femininity. A hat is the difference between looking adequate and looking your best. A hat is to be stylish in, to glow under, to flirt beneath, to make all others seem jealous over, and to make all men feel masculine about. A piece of magic is a hat." (Martha Sliter)
