It’s hard to believe that we are into the final few days of summer! Fortunately, though, the weather is still sunny and beautiful and I can happily continue to set up photoshoots outside. My latest shoot, the results of which you can see featured, centred around the heart of my beautiful home city of Poznań, whose Old Town is visited by tens of thousands of tourists every day. And there’s no wonder – as exquisite architecture and a wealth of charming restaurants serving delicious food encourage people to stick around for a while 🙂 But crowds of people are no problem for me, so despite my provocative outfit I decided to take some pictures in one of the most recognisable parts of the city – the steps of Renaissance City Hall. By the way, my beloved new black heels from Christian Louboutin, which I ordered a few weeks ago, have finally made their first appearance on my blog. I have dreamed of owning of pair of ‘So Kate’ heels for many years, which is why I’m so happy that I have been able finally to add them to my shoe collection. And although they don’t rank among my most comfortable shoes, they look phenomenal and very, very sexy!
Nude tights are having a moment. This week Meghan Markle was spotted at her first public engagement as a newlywed wearing a pair, adhering to the strict royal dress code of no-bare-legs. With plenty of summer weddings this year, I’ve been tempted to try the look but I’ve been apprehensive too and struggling to find the right pair.
From the moment the box arrived, I knew Heist tights would be different. It’s a treat to open their sandy pink box that feels luxe and smart. The tights come in a dust bag that I will be using again to stop any zips or heels catching on them as you pack and unpack for a weekend away. As you slither into them, they feel smooth and silky. There are two options of waistband – high at the waist and low to sit around the hips – I went for the high and the panel around the waist gives you just enough additional support to justify a lunch time pudding.
I wore Heist Nude on a hot summer’s day – all day – and never felt sticky. As the day turned to night I was thankful for a little leg warmth, and the flexibility meant I could dance all night without them rolling down or digging in at my waist. At 18-denier you almost forget you are wearing them – without a doubt the smoothest and most flattering tights I have ever worn.

The sequins were a must in the eighties, come back strongly for this fall-winter and for those who are hard to accept this trend, nothing like a small initial contact with this Zaful dress.
A black dress with little details of sequins in pastel, pink and blue tones in sleeves and bottoms, without forgetting the bow and front of the ruffles. I fell in love since I saw it on the website of Zaful, much of the style I usually display on the blog.
We went on Tuesday to take photos, taking advantage of the good weather that we hade and took as accessories, black shoes, blue baby bag and pink jacket.
I hope you like it and that you are enjoying the day, a hug and thanks for being there.
Wearing transparent blouses is always a challenge. Such provocative fabrics should be combined with simple, elegant elements that would give balance to our outfit. I set my lace crop top with black bra, pencil midi skirt from SheIn.com and burgundy pumps.

It’s awesome how many years the details of the outfit can (metaphorically) add or subtract. My outfits most often definitely rejuvenate me, but there are situations in which I want to wear something different. This time I wanted to feel like a businesswoman. Although the official “dress code” in Poland is quite restrictive (too much femininity and abundance of accessories are not recommended), I would not be myself if I did not break a few rules! I set the base (tight gray mini dress) with classic, elegant accessories: black cardigan, heels and stylish glasses.
