You can probably see it already – I’m in love with my new pleated skirt. Well, what I can say, it’s the best purchase I did for the past months.

I never thought that this lace top can match perfectly with the pleated skirt, but unexpectedly it became the best combination I could think of. Maybe it’s because of the skirt color, or because of the accessories, or because everything together. I’m obsessed with the final result and want to wear it non stop from now on!
One advise I can give to everyone if you’re thinking of buying the pleated skirt – experiment. With the length, shoes, tops and accessories. If the length is too long – go and alter it. It’s always easier to make it shorter rather than the opposite. As for the tops – just try it on with everything that you have in your wardrobe according the season and believe me you’ll find something!

Lace is an absolute trend this season so how could I pass it? I’ve shown this lace dress back in Spring, but that time I was wearing it with a bright fuchsia cardigan and heels. Well, the time has come to wear it on it’s own and here I am with little clutch bag and wedges 🙂

This summer was absolutely wonderful, full of hot and humid days and giving me the opportunity to rock all of the dresses and skirts that I have. This weekend we’ve been strolling through the downtown and I could not resist taking a few photos just before the morning coffee and croissant.

I’ve been thinking of buying the pleated skirt for a long time now, but every time delayed it. When I saw this gorgeous grey blue color I knew it’s time to do it!

If you follow me on Pinterest you’ve seen already the new Pleated Skirt board, where I saved all the ideas on style. I didn’t realize that simple midi pleated skirt can be so versatile. Wear it with sneakers, heels, boots, t-shirts, sweaters, leather jackets, tops and more.
Today I’m showing the most casual way to style this skirt. Very easy breezy, for the Sunday brunch at Cluny in Distillery District. I think that this particular color will be great transition to fall and winter so I have a feeling that I’ll be wearing it pretty often.
Any ideas on how to style is, besides the ideas I’ve listed?

I’ve been making this mini berry mascarpone tarts dessert all summer long because of it’s simplicity. The preparation time takes 3 minutes and the baking is only 10 so that makes a fast and easy summer dessert.

Mini Berry Mascarpone Tarts 1

The decoration of my mini berry mascarpone tarts is hidden in it’s name, as well as the other ingredients 🙂 I’ve used strawberries and blueberries, but you can easily change it to any berries or fruits that you have in the fridge, as long as they don’t soak.Mini Berry Mascarpone Tarts 2 Mini Berry Mascarpone Tarts 3

What you’ll need:

  • 12 ready to bake mini tarts
  • 250 g mascarpone cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • cup of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essense
  • fresh berries

Cooking Process:

  1. preheat the oven according to the instructions on the ready to bake tarts
  2. mix mascarpone cheese, eggs, vanilla essence and sugar
  3. using the table spoon or any cup pour the mix into the tarts
  4. bake for 8-10 minutes, remove, let them cool
  5. serve with berries and (optional) confectioners sugar on top

My advise:

  • if you don’t like sugar and prefer jam, mu suggestion is to skip the sugar in the recipe, like I did. We had very tasty home made jam, so before decorating with berries I’ve spread good amount of jam over the tart.
  • you can add pureed bananas instead of eggs, it will brown the mascarpone a bit and will have sweeter taste
  • you can also add honey or nuts into the mix, all will taste heavenly
  • improvise!

You’ve probably seen me in this Paris printed t-shirt on my Instagram and know how much I love it. Since the day I saw it in the store I knew it has to be mine! If you’ve been following me for a while you know that I don’t wear printed t-shirts that often and when I do – it’s love at the first site.

Our weekend been absolutely crazy: from tornado warning to pleasant and finally (!!!) low humidity weather so I was able to take some outfit shots. Today’s outfit is one of the easiest and summer casual outfits. High-waisted denim shorts and light knitted cardigan fits perfect into the day full of errands. As for the hat, it’s a necessity, you need to cover your head in the high temperature to avoid the heat.
