Pairing a beautiful piece of cardigan or wrap with divine sandals is one of my absolute favorite thing to do during Indian Summer. Looks like it's never goes out of style and I think it's such a chic and ladylike way of dressing. Currently I'm very impressed by this big and cozy cashmere cardigan from Sonia Rykiel. What do you think?

...and of course I'm loving these Badgley Mischka lavender satin heels too /not on image, but loving those too/. Hope your week is going smoothly my dears.

MORE CARDIGAN LOVE:
A black knitted cardigan in voluminous style from Rick Owens, an ultra feminine ruffled coverup from Moschino and a sumptuous wrap cardigan from Vivienne Westwood. I also like this open front cardigan from Simply Vera by Vera Wang and this ruffled one from Elle /not to mention their prices are lovely/.

Beautiful fashion inspiration from Valentino. I'm in love with every little detail in this magnificent haute couture collection. And see this is what I was talking about, looking at this gorgeousness I think my pre autumn gloominess is already gone...

Believe me this is just a small piece of creamy eye candy compare to the whole collection what you can see here. Hope your Monday is lovely my dears.

MY VALENTINO LINK LOVE:
Don't even take a look at this Ruffled wool-blend coat if you're -like me- able to fall in love hysterically with beautiful coats, unless if you are willing to say goodbye for $4000 /just for the record I'm willing, but I just can't yet - and now I'm really smiling/. I'm also -hopelessly- in love with these Bow-embellished lace leather pumps and this pretty Rosette jersey T-shirt. But at least I'm a proud owner of this book.

I love these cheerful and very summery photo shots from Alexandra Grecco's Etsy Shop. The Brooklyn based designer has many lovely items on her palette such as this gorgeous Louise Lace Bow /first image/ or this charming Save Her Soul Eyelet Dress /images below/. I think the way she's naming her creations is pretty fabulous...

I don't know how about you but I always feel a little blue around this time of the year. When I'm writing these lines it's raining outside and we're having a really chilly morning here. I can smell the autumn in the air and while I'm trying not to self sabotage my happiness by counting on a season to bring joy to my life I have to admit that, it's difficult to say goodbye to summer. I find this article very interesting about pre autumn depression by the way. Well, from next week I'll start updating my blog more often and that is something I'm actually looking forward...and when I think about soft cardigans, pretty jackets and splendid boots, I even feel a little excitement...how about you?

SIDE NOTE: Million thanks for the very nice comments about my photography post. Your support means a lot to me and I was so happy about your very detailed and observant comments. Thanks a lot again. There were some questions about my camera and lenses, please note that I will answer those questions very shortly.

One of my most exciting summer project was a photography course which I started at the beginning of July here in Budapest. I took these pictures about my gorgeous and very sophisticated friend in the middle of July on a hot summer afternoon at her ranch. It was the second time I had my Nikon D90 in my hands and I know there is a lot lot lot to learn but I really like how these shots came out...

It's so great to learn something new and I have hundreds of visions in my head. I'm so excited to learn more and more about photography and I really hope you like these shots. Have a lovely weekend my dears.

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."

Is there any dream destination you would like to visit during the summer? I have some on my list /and in my dreams/. I hope your August is wonderful so far.
