Destray Picks: Summer Bottoms

Destray Picks: Summer Bottoms

Aaaand it’s Monday again! This week I am continuing my summer picks with the best bottoms to be worn this summer. You know, one and probably one of the main reasons why I am so into fashion is because I don’t really like routine – so I don’t like looking the same, or if inspired enough not even similar 2 days in a row. And I always thought the bottom part of your outfit plays a key role in that. Because you can wear the same pair of jeans and different tops and chances are you’re looking quite the same everyday. But if you wear jeans, then a skirt, then a jumpsuit and so on, your outfits would really look different. So today I am giving you 10 ideas to spice up your outfits and make them look really summerish. Hope you get inspired, enjoy! Long skirt In my eyes, long skirts have always said it out loud and clear – beach walk. There is such a nice feeling to walk by the sea and have the wind blow your skirt and feel the sea breeze. Okay, day dreaming about a holiday now, I shall stop. 2. Short skirt But of course, then you need an urban outfit too – shopping session or drinks with your ladies? This. 3. Cullotes Okay, with these I went from hate to love. It took me a while, my mum actually tried to make me like them a whileeee ago, but I wouldn’t have any of it. And now, yes mum, you were right, I love them, can I have them back please?...
Destray Picks: Summer Tops

Destray Picks: Summer Tops

Hello babes, That’s it, it’s summer! June is here, sun is shining, our minds are flying far away to beautiful beaches, and last but not least, our wardrobes demand to look more summerish. I’ve started created my summer 2016 wardrobe a while ago, but you know, when the weather is gloomy and windy, you don’t really feel like buying crop tops, and instead you run to the coziest of sweaters! So now that it’s finally warmer, I can indeed finalize my summer looks! Throughout June I will share with you my favourite summer pieces for this year so that by the end of the month you’ll feel fully inspired to show off your summer looks! This Monday I’m showing you my favourite tops! Some I own, some are on my wishlist, but regardless, they’re all musts for my summer! I must say, and my friends know, I’m not the best when it comes to buying tops – apart from that 99.9% of the time ending up buying a dress (oops) I have this feeling that when I buy a top I want it to be special and unique. And then I go home and I wonder why I don’t have any basics. Well, think about it, Diana. Sooo yeah, I’m working on it! Which is why I decided to make the best of both worlds and find simple tops that actually have a little detail, or they’re tailored in a special way or just choose them in a cute colour so that maybe, just maybe, I end up actually having tops in my wardrobe too, and not just dresses....

All things Vogue

Hello darlings, I know I haven’t posted an Inspirational Monday in a while, but I thought it’d be a good moment to do that as this Monday comes right after a weekend filled with so much inspiration! If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you’d know I spent the weekend in London attending the Vogue Festival. It was the first edition I have ever attended and obviously, I was really excited! And it was all worth it, it was a great experience! The festival went on for 2 days and it was filled with a lot of great talks and masterclasses as well as a huge tent in Kensignton Gardens where fashionistas could take advantage of great offers and have some amazing experiences. The talks that I chose to attend on Saturday were Alexa Chung’s Style Clinic with Lauren Santo Domingo and Derek Blasberg and “The Allure of Paris cool” with Isabel Marant and Caroline de Maigret in conversation with Lisa Armstrong. The first show was very interesting and showed a different perspective of fashion, from 3 people with very different styles and at the same time, different inputs in the fashion world, but they all agreed that in order to make it into the fashion world you have to work your a** off, no joke! That, and that the fashion world is not such a cruel one after all and you can still be a good person and work in fashion! The second show made me feel like I am in France at a small table in front of a cafe sipping on some good wine and...

Moving On

Happy New Year, beautiful people! I hope you spent your New Year’s Eve surrounded by people you love, enjoyed moments of laughter and happiness and danced the night away! I cannot believe how fast 2015 has gone by! It’s been such an intense year! I lived in 3 countries, visited 3 more, met amazing people and learned so much! Somehow, it was a difficult year, changing my environment and the way my daily life goes so many times was exhausting at times. There were times when I wasn’t at my best, physically and mentally, there were times when I stepped back and reconsidered parts of my life. But throughout it all, there wasn’t a single moment when I didn’t feel loved and supported by my dearest ones! My family – undebatable, as well as old friends and new friends, I was blessed to have them all in my life! I realized that it’s ok to let people go, that it’s even better to make new friends and enlarge your horizons and most of all, that I can do whatever I put my mind and heart to, as long as I’m truly determined and committed! I am grateful for everything – the good and the bad in my life, and I am sooo excited for 2016! I have so many dreams that I want to turn into plans, so many places to see and so many things to be thankful for! One of my dearest baby projects that I am hoping will grow better and stronger this year is this little blog, where I have shared with you so much...

It Gets Me Thinking

Hi guys, I have wanted to write a post like this for a while. I have wanted to write one after the tragedy that happened in Romania, I started it, but then I never posted it. Now, I wondered for a while if I will actually post it this time, but then I decided that I should. I am writing this post with everyone affected by any of these recent tragedies on my mind. And by that I mean everyone that died, everyone that survived, their families, friends, the medical staff that helped them and the list goes on and ends with me and you. Because I can bet you have been affected by this. Or at least I know I have been. More than I thought I would have been. Of course, tragedies like these affect you. But this time, it got me thinking. And feeling. Feeling for every innocent life that ended all of a sudden. In Bucharest, in Paris, in Beirut, in Baghdad, in Japan, in all those countries that have tragedies that never reach the media and in all those households that were tear apart by something as awful as this. I have been going through a lot of feelings. I have been shocked, I have felt compassion and I have cried. I was on the phone with my friend when the tragedy happened in Paris and she told me to check the news. I did. And I was so shocked that I couldn’t sleep and I would refresh the page constantly to see updates. However, the more I was looking, the sadder I got....
