Turquoise style for a sunny day!

While my brother has been visiting me, I have had a chance to play tourist too…it’s a great way for me to enjoy Switzerland and really get a chance to visit places that I don’t often go. This day trip took us to the beautiful city of Bern…named after the wild bears that inhabit this picturesque river village. I knew we would be doing a lot of walking and it would be a full sunny day…so my two main concerns were 1) comfort and 2) sun protection.

Here is what I wore:
Fedora Hat purchased at Swap Shop
Target silver aviator sunglasses
Matty M crochet cotton top
Paige Premium Denim Peg Skinny jeans in turquoise
Turquoise and crystal bangle from Mystique Jewels
Vince Camuto Malinda sandals in white– I wrote about this sandals here and I stand behind what I wrote…these are comfortable…even for long walking days!!
H&M faux leather cross body bag

And here is a picture of Bern…it’s one of my favorite cities in Switzerland and I definitely recommend it. It has a lot of culture, lively energy and beautiful architecture.

See you around, friends!!

      24 hours is certainly not enough time….maybe next time ;)

  23. July 28, 2012 / 9:52 pm

    Martha! I love the turqouise! i’m still on the hunt for a pair myself. Thinking of the J- crew one butnot wuite happy with the fit. I don’t want to settle. Love your accessories as well. I love Vince Camuto heels, never tried their sandals, maybe its time I invest in a pair.


    Juliette =)

    • July 28, 2012 / 10:16 pm

      The Vince Camuto sandals are super comfy…and they look fabulous, I think.
      I would tell you to definitely not settle on jeans…they should fit like a glove and make you feel sexy, fun and chic. I personally love Paige denim. You should check revolveclothing.com…they sometimes have great sales!!

    • July 28, 2012 / 10:16 pm

      It’s a fabulous little country…full of history, beauty and truly breathtaking nature ;)

      I LOVE this outfit! Can you tell us where you bought the Matty M top from? I’ve googled it and come up with nothing! Hope you can help. :-)

    • September 9, 2012 / 2:46 pm

      I bought this top at Bloomingdales in Aventura Mall about a year ago…I don’t know the exact name of it for you to search it :(
      Have you tried their website/ebay/Amazon?

      Thanks for your reply! I did try their website but it appears to be under construction. And I couldn’t find on Ebay or Amazon either but thanks for your suggestions! Oh well, guess it wasn’t meant to be. Thanks again!

    • September 10, 2012 / 5:20 pm

      I’m sorry you couldn’t find it :(
      I know that Matty M has a Facebook page…I liked it to this picture on mine (www.facebook.com/princessmarthablog)
      If you really want to find it, perhaps you could write them directly there and ask if they have it or something similar in stores.
      Good luck!!
