Theme 37: Holidays in California. PrettyMissy Look in Davis, Ca

PrettyMissy Lace-Up front sweater in Mustard color. Review

Ben and I spent Thanksgiving in Davis, California, where his grandparents reside. It was my first time visiting Sacramento area, Napa and San Francisco, and I was amazed how beautifully Fall paints Californian cities with its' orange, yellow and red colors. If you have been following my Instagram Stories, you saw all the details of my Californian adventures, however today I wanted to share some outfit deeds with you.

PrettyMissy is an online boutique that I have recently discovered, and they have a lot of very stylish affordable clothes and holiday dresses. I got a lot of compliments on my PrettyMissy front-lace up sweater in a mustard color that worked surprisingly well with my skin tone and my hair that got so dark without summer sun. The sweater comes in Hunter Green and Oatmeal shade as well so definitely take a look!

The over-the-knee boots I am wearing is another staple item of my FW season looks. They don't only look gorgeous, but they are comfortable, which is very rare for any footwear with an elegant thin heel. I HIGHLY recommend Pour La Victoire boots.

Theme 35: Fall in New York. With Mer-Sea Luxe Collection

Ben and I are living in hotels again!  But you probably already know that if you follow my daily Instagram Stories and watched me try to fit my life into a hotel suite's limited space. The truth is the hotel hopping life is great, but I still need some special little details that help me transform a standard suite into our home.

I have recently discovered Mer-Sea & Co. brand and fell in love with their classy decor elements, lush bathroom products and travel accessories. Their new LUXE COLLECTION is rich and beautiful and is probably one of the most safest gorgeous gifts you can get your girlfriend, mother-in-law or just as a hostess gift to someone.

it became my ritual lighting up Amber Fumée candle every night and using a Mer-Sea Mystique roomspray that smells like a fresh field of grass, light flowers and lemon trees gardens after a rain. The candles and sprays really set up a dreamy mood, and look very chic as decor elements too, thanks to minimalistic luxury design.

Mer-Sea also carries a great range of travel accessories, and considering how often I fly all over the map, it is almost a necessity to have a set of quality functional items for the travels! First of all, I didn't even know how much one travel wrap can get used, but I love my black cotton cashmere wrap. It looks super stylish, it is comfy, it is soft and luxury (hello, it is cashmere!) and I wear it not only on the plane, but out, to a dinner over a dress, and, frankly, I often use it a blanket when I watch Netflix. It really gets much more use than I ever anticipated, so I recommend you to pick at least one travel wrap for yourself. Plus, it folds into a tiny pouch, which is always great as we all hate to stuff our carry-ons till the bursting point.

Second travel accessory I really like from Mer-Sea Luxe Collection is a Passport Clutch. It is also big enough to store couple of credit cards and my ID, and it is very pleasant and as always classy.

I wanted to show you my regular casual airport look, but I didn't want to force Ben or my photographer to shoot at the airport, so I thought I should take my readers to the Central Park, to the lake and to the trees touched by this magical fall. The beauty of classic Mer-Sea luxury items was really accentuated, in my opinion, by warm fall colors and I hope these pictures will give you a happy tingly feeling.

Theme 32: Boho Chic. Festival Vibes in the City

California Moonrise review. Amazing clothes boho chic

For a while I wanted to get a long cardigan, but couldn't find what I really liked. Luckily I received this absolutely beautiful long knitted crochet cardigan from California Moonrise, and I am embarrassed to say that I wear it pretty much every day with everything now!

Pictures on their website doesn't even give it a justice. The cardigan is very comfy, but stylish and can be as easily worn with shorts and jeans as with a swimsuit or as a warm throw at home. Recently I have been writing in outdoors cafes a lot, and because it is still chilly in New York, I love throwing this cardigan over basic tops and tshirts. 

For this look, shot by my favorite NYC Photographer Dennis, I styled California Moonrise cardigan with white jeans, silky top with lacey details, added some black accessories and of course wore my cowboy hat that I seem to not take off since Coachella :)

FOHR EVENT:

I will tell you a secret: I sometimes prefer events and parties to runway shows! Often they are more intimate and exclusive, and you get more chances to meet and talk to some truly inspiring and beautiful women. I was lucky to have a blogger friend Sarah Jessica from FASHinNY to introduce me to some wonderful people and brands. She was the one who told me about FOHR. BeFOHR event was actually the party that launched my NYFW adventures.

I really enjoyed Malan Breton's collection as it is so close to my style. It has that feel of a vintage class, sophistication and a touch of a luxury that I adore. Here are some of my favourite looks from Malan Breton's FW 2017 runways show:
