My day 2 in Brighton last weekend was absolutely great. It was sunny and warm (thanks weather for that) and I could wear just a sandals and tee.
I don’t know if you have any habit when you go for a longer weekend holiday, but I tend to pack with me just enough. I don’t get crazy comparing to other holidays. For that reason I decided to give you few tips (especially what I found usefull) when it comes to packing.
If I travel for a weekend to relax and chill out, I do usually take only necessary things. That´s why everyone loves capsule wardrobe, to make it easy for yourself, and take only what you need. Of course, now I am talking about practical way, but I always love fashion, so there has to be something stylish. About a week ago me and my boyfriend decided to go for a weekend to Brighton. I knew will be mostly enjoying the time together walking by the pier, searching for a nice food and coffee. You have to think in advance what to take with you. So here is my first outfit that I wore on Saturday.

As you may already know, I have a full time job, working as a stylist for one independent store. The other day I was putting together a holiday capsule wardrobe for our event and social media (as if I am not blogging here on TCG, I am blogging there), but don´t worry I am trying to keep up to updated you here as well. Well, as I was styling our model (and my friend, I though why not to take some photographes in my outfit that I wore to work.

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know I had a short break in Brighton last weekend. And that would not be me and TCG style if I would not get something for myself. I did only go to few stores, otherwise just chilling out with my boyfriend by the beach, in restaurants, coffee shop and enjoying each other. One of the stores that I visit is high street ZARA. I saw a brown shorts in leather effect and that was a must have for me. Firstly, before I can start wearing them (we have to got a better weather here in UK), I have to tun my legs a bit, so paild after the long winter season.
As the May is here, and I haven´t wished for spring wardrobe yet, so why not now :). I have teamed up with online shopping destination Avenue32 and create this wishlist board. As the print is so in style right now, I couldn´t be left behind. And of course, minimalism and monochrome completes the TCG style.
Did you know… British Vogue named Avenue32.com as a number 2 in their TOP 100 online stores list. That´s pretty impressive, don´t you think? But very realistic, you can find so many different and unique designers on there, and great for exploring what´s new and stylish. Of course, number 1 in the list is net-a-porter.com.
Among the designers that I liked their collections are Mantu, Felipe Oliveira, Araks, Co, Barbara Casasola, Maria Francesca Pepe, Prism, Biond Costana and of course 3.1 Phillip Lim. See more about the designers and their collection on Avenue32.com

Here is my photo diary from Vogue Festival 2013 that was happening last weekend in London. I did go to see young talented desginers, such as Mary Katrantzou, J.W. Anderson, Jonathan Saunders and Erdém Moralioglu. talking about what it takes to be a designer nowadays. And lastly a fashion etrepreneur, founder of net-a-porte-com, Natalie Massenet that had such a inspiring talk that I am still recovering from whad did she achieved. Such an amazing lady, so I have extended my list of inspiring women in fashion business, two of them so far you can see here and here. Shortly today, here is to take you there back with me what my eyes saw.
Here is my beauty that I score just few days ago in H&M. It remindes me a sapphire stone necklace with an inspiration from the computer game Tetris. How cool is that?
Check out these new looks at All Saints. I love each of them, no necessarily I would wear all of it, but there are pieces that are on my wish list.
The White wedge look was taken during my day trip to Cheltenham, a very nice city in West Midlands that is just 20 minutes drive from my place. It supposed to be finally better – sunny and warm – well, I didn´t have to take my coat for the first time. So that´s already pretty good feeling, don´t you think? Unfortunately for us, it was constantly windy and showering, so I had always just 5 minutes to jump to the park and get some photos done. With a new lens that I borrowed from my friend – neither I or Ali didn´t know how to use it outdoor (I believe it is a micro lens, so not very ideal for outfit shoot). At the end, I had some (un)focused photographs that I can share here with you, but the most important was that we had a lovely lunch after all in lovely coffee shop, where I tasted the real English afternoon tea – I have to say, they know what´s good – follow me on Instagram to see my daily posts.
Kelly Wearstler is one of the three women in a business that I respect and adore. I can always look at her how far did she go, when I have feelings that my path turned the wrong way.
I knew about Wearstler designs already before, but at some point never paid attention to the detail. When I find out that all the interior designs that I like, inspired by snitch of ‘art deco’ and ‘modernism’, is her work. I couldn’t believe it. Not just that I liked some bits, but anything I found on the internet was truly her work. READ MORE AFTER JUMP!
When I saw that The Coveteur have visited Erin Wasson´s home I got the idea for this three coming posts. Not only their home, but I am/will share with you three intelectual women that influence the world of fashion and design. And personally, I adore these three women too. Introducing ERIN WASSON today. See more after the jump.
The perfect swimsuit that I have seen for ages, introducing Stephanie by Minimale Animale. I have discovered this brand just right now, and have to say, I love it! This particular one have probably run through the blogosphere already, but if it is worth it, I will always share it here with you. I did play little bit with photoshop as well, to add a new TCG style. See more photos after the jump.
This is my current inspiration for my blogging and proffesional life. Not necessary stripes, but all to do with the colours, monochrome (the trend of this season) and minimalism (my secret love in fashion for minimalism is growing so fast). White represents the softness of everything I do and black has the power of decesion making, isn´t it great? Idon´t think we need that many other colour, if I ma not talking about mood. However, there is of course a love in my life right now, so I am considering a marshmallow pastell colour such as this one on my favourite T-shirt that I am just wearing today, Jac51 Marshamllow pink by American Vintage. Lovein it!!!

I was just about to find some new colour for my nails in a spring mood, definitely warm palette. Even though I like Essie or OPI, I found this COLOR SHOW by Colorana Maybelline NY and though I´ll try it. Right now I am wearing the pink one, and it is great. It has been already few days as well, and it still looking good. If you think of trying anything new? This range seems to be the one. Take care. xx
