Maxi Dress + Floral Wool Knitwear
Finally the weather has changed and we can officially welcome the Fall season in Dubai. Better late than never!
I know that a good blazer is the best thing to wear at the moment. It’s classic but trendy at the same time and, depends on the style, it can elevate your look or it can add a little bit of edgy. I’m definitely a big fan of this item which yes, might be trendy at the moment, but it’s something that lasts in your closet for ages. Maybe even forever.
At the same time, I think nothing can beat the coziness of a good warm sweater. Since one of my main targets of this season is to try to carry on as long as possible my summer dresses (in order to create a no-season wardrobe), I found that a chunky warm knitwear can help me a lot.
Further, I don’t know if it’s only me, but I noticed that also this item has been pretty popular lately. H&M definitely has a big variety in store. And don’t think that the quality is always cheap. I bought this pink loose-knit sweater a month ago, I’m wearing it often and I find the quality pretty good. To help you I’ll link some models that I like at the moment at the end of this post, but my suggestion is to check them in store. One of the biggest challenge I find in buying online high street brands is that you never truely understand the quality of the item selected. Sometimes it looks good in picture, but it’s so bad in reality or – even worst – the touch of the fabric on the skin is horrible!
If I have concern about high street brands, I know that I can always count on Intropia for pretty feminine clothes. It was still 40 degrees outside when I spotted this embroidered floral knitwear in the shopping window and I couldn’t help myself. I went in store and I bought it. Two months later I can finally wear it. It works so well layered on my summer maxi dresses. But it’s also perfect on jeans and t-shirt and, for a bon-ton touch, I wear it also with a pair of tailored trousers. I guess it was a good investment.
This Intropia cardigan was a bit pricey but I saw that Mango has a similar model. Well, to be honest, I was tempted to buy also that version because it’s actually really cute, but than I remembered this post and I left the cardigan in store (I’m gonna regret it, I know!).
On another note, some weeks ago I attended to the launch of LOVE, the new fragrance by Victoria’s Secret and they gifted me with a bottle. I wish I could share a drop of scent here on my blog because it smells so good. There is also a fun story behind LOVE. One of the ingredients is the “boyfriend tee” which means Victoria’s Secret re-created that feeling that we all feel when our boy takes his T-shirt off. It sounds a lot like a marketing stategy, but hell, it worked well with me! With the holiday season approaching fast, I think LOVE by Victoria’s Secret might be a nice gift to find under the tree.
