Week 27: The Start of 2017. The Return of Tartan.

Blogger wearing tartan skirt with black boots. Winter style 2017.

Wow. What a year 2016 has been! I moved to New York, married my love, launched this blog and my online shop, travelled to gorgeous places, and so much more!

Those loyal readers who follow me on Instagram (I love you!) know that I have been on the craziest, most wonderful "tour" over the last few weeks. I spent a very cozy Christmas at home with Ben and his family in Utah, and then my love took me on our Scandinavian adventure

The trip has been splendid and surprising in many ways, however I feel I have been living on an airplane for way too long now!

All throughout December, Ben and I flew back and forth between New York and Park City, and after Christmas up until now we were hopping from Moscow to Stockholm ---> Kiruna ---> Copenhagen ---> Oslo ---> Stockholm ---> Amsterdam. Phew!  I promise I will share a proper travel diary with you as soon as I get back to New York... and after at least one day of proper sleep and some serious unpacking.

For now, catch out this sexy, casual look that I shot with Dennis. The Old New Year celebration falls on the 14th of January, so it is still totally appropriate to have a Christmas tree in some photographs. :)

The highlight (or I shall I say Highland? ;)) of the look is this plaid skirt from ZARA, matched with a sexy Zaful top and knee high Steve Madden boots. The tartan print is definitely becoming more and more popular, especially after the crazy success of the whole Outlander universe. At least to me, tartan is always a good reminder of Jamie Fraser ;) Who else loves tartan because of Outlander?!

Week 20: Kauai Island. Exploring the Paradise in Zaful.

Zaful romper. Review by fashion blogger Ulia Ali.

This Week I am going to share not only the remaining Hawaiian beach looks, but I have also written a special Kauai Guide for you!

My husband and I stayed at the St. Regis Hotel in Princeville for the entire two weeks we were on the island. The hotel has one of the most breathtaking views overlooking the blue ocean, exotic flowers and green mountains that look like they are from a magical land. We took many iPhone photos on the hotel's many balconies and terraces, and shot this “Ulia The Explorer” look (ha!) that I wore for our road trip to the Waimea Canyon State Park. 

I wore this Zaful romper which has a great Safari feel about it and my new Patricia Chang Croissant Bag that I won in the giveaway she had last month on her Instagram.

Week 19: Hawaii. Tropical Beauty in Zaful.

Pink Zaful bikini review by blogger Ulia Ali.

Kauai island has one of the best beaches in the USA and I especially fell in love with this "secret" Hideaways beach in Princeville where Ben and I shot this beautiful pink bikini from Zaful. I have been trying to find a swimsuit in a beautiful shade of blush pink all summer and I was so happy that Zaful had this in stock.

Week 19: Hawaii. Aloha, Beaches! Zaful Swimwear Review.

Zaful swimsuit review. White lace one-piece. Aloha Beaches in Hawaii!

Dear readers, I apologise for not updating Pastiche.Today this past week. I am currently on my vacation the beautiful island of Kauai, Hawaii and I am predictably busy :)

I will try to keep you updated on Instagram, but I am very excited to finally share my swimwear photoshoots and travel tips on the blog. Ben is a really wonderful and supporting man and even though he doesn't always enjoy taking pictures, he helped out because he knows how important Pastiche.today is to me. I have also been lucky to shoot with Marcus Bloss and I cannot wait to show you what we have created together. So while everyone else is writing about Fashion Week, I am going to show you some awesome beach photographs and write a unique Kauai Travel Guide!

This one-piece is very intricate and beautiful, and is so perfect for honeymooning. I have been so impressed by the quality of Zaful items and their wide range of clothes and swimwear that I just have to share a little list of my favourites from the shop at the end of this post (along with coupon codes!). Girls, I really do highly recommend this online store!
