Black Friday, Cyber Monday? Only a few years back I personally had to clue of any, but in these digital and global times you must have been hiding in a cave with no internet connection or been a real anti-shopper at heart if you haven’t snapped it up. My inbox have been full lately with all sorts of sales, offers and discounts than ever before and if you’re an eager online shopper like myself I’m sure yours is too. Now is the time to get those things you’ve been eyeing for long, but never really could justify to pay at full price, let the joyful shopping begin!
Winter chill has slowly arrived and this week I’ve wrapped up in layers of wool. I’ve also rediscovered the practicality of thigh high boots that are the best leg warmers there is, and I have the feeling this pair are gonna be quite useful if this season’s weather forecast comes true. I’ll just make sure to leave my leather mini’s at home!
Pink, perhaps the colour of 2013, and spring 2014? Yup, some pink pieces have found their way to my wardrobe too, and I particularly love this skirt by Carven, where the thick wool fabric sort of has a life on it’s own. It has various styling possibilities, and goes with everything, perhaps not so much with black tights, but time will see.
Outfit worn a few weeks back, today a totally different story, winter has arrived, so Happy Chilly Sunday noon world!
Bare legs in November? Yup, that has been totally possible in London without freezing your legs off. I’m not the one who spend my outdoor life in a cab (!), but with layers of wool, cashmere and a coat, bare legs has worked surprisingly well this mild season. However it’s inevitable, and as temperatures are dropping the dreaded tights(!), will eventually be put back on again, but until then I’m channeling my inner viking!
This fall is not all about checks ala laundry bags (hello Celine!) and traditional tartan in various colours. Lets not forget about the ‘Prince of Wales’, a timeless plaid that is not that distinctive (and so 2013!) as many of the checks out there at the moment. Hence, this coat is a long time keeper that I’ll also be wearing when we’re all over the “checked era”!
No matter what’s going on out there I always come back to the classics, so here we go again. Sporting these cropped suit trousers a lot lately, they are real all rounders that I either wear with the matching blazer or pretty much everything else in my wardrobe.
With memories of days in the City in the back of my head I personally always avoid very tailored pieces like this with a white shirt, while I see others manage to make it look everything but office’y, but I’m up for the challenge.
Happy Sunny Sunday you lovely ones!
London weather has been on the milder side this fall and it has been possible to postpone being all wrapped up, we all know those days are just around the corner though.
With no need of a wintery coat I’ve been practically living in this cashmere knit that I use with anything, like these super soft flared legged jeans by MiH for instance. Most people would perhaps initially pair them with heels, but I got mine cropped to wear with flats, feels much newer in a way I think, and you avoid looking and feeling too costumey.
Dungarees and Air Max? Nope, I’m not preggy again (!!!), neither on my way to the gym, certainly not fit for the cocktail party, but suits me perfect when on the run. My little girl will hopefully (or perhaps not!) be walking in not too long and I’ll probably be very glad I’ve stocked up with comfy, runnable footwear when those days come along.
From a sartorial point of view I like the freshness, or confusion is more like it, a pair of sneakers adds to most outfits, especially when they come in happy colours like these or cool prints.
Shades of greys are dominating my wardrobe right now, something I never intentionally planned, but a fact (!) after a recent wardrobe cleanup. Unlike most other colours grey shades can be layered so well together without putting much thought into it, and that carefreeness fits perfectly with how I usually get dressed.
Wool trousers from Cos bought several seasons ago (similar styles here and here), wool sweater by Stella McCartney, coat by Ganni (also here and here), shoes by Chanel, Sella bag by Tod’s and Tag Heuer watch.
I’ve always had a soft spot for pinstripes and thanks to Stella McCartney and Vanessa Bruno there are plenty of pinstripes to chose from in stores this season, by the respective designers and on the high street. Though I personally never go for the copied-designer-pieces myself, I’m open to “inspired” trend pieces of good quality. These wool trousers by Mango for instance, are personal budget favourites of mine right now, and I think I might wear them to pieces (hope not!) this winter.
The weeks are passing by in record speed these days, I’m feeling terrible late and behind with everything, and my dear blog and outfit posts have suffered big time. I guess, unless you’re constantly been tailed by a photographer who serve you shots on a plate I find it hard to keep the frequency up, sorry for that you lovely ones!
Anyway, as the minimalist I am I’m a true fan on the 90′s, and though the wave of teen spirit surely s dominating this season (Angela, you were my hero!), I would never turn my back to a clean double breasted blazer silhouette. Funnily enough I bumped into a “Celine-twin” this day back in Paris, pretty much dressed in the same way, and I didn’t know whether to cry or laugh, naturally I chose the latter, self distance gets you longer!
If you’ve stopped by this blog before, then you probably know there’s no “sartorial extremism” ongoing on this space, and his week I’ve been pretty much back to the basics, jeans, shirt and blazer, perfect when on the run and dressy enough for meetings. The ballerinas, whom I for many years shied away from(!), have now become indispensable in my daily with work and a baby in my arms. I actually never leave the house these days without a pair either on my feet on in my bag. Speaking of bag, I’m officially in a relationship with this Tod’s shopper, the best perfect sized every-day-bag that ever happened to me, and I love the sharp, yet feminine shape of it.
Something “old”, something new, I rarely borrow, but I love the colour blue, and I’m not referring to any marital status.
Mixing “old” favourites with new seasons additions is usually my way to go, it’s all about investing in quality pieces right?
New in in this outfit that I wore in Paris last week are these gorgeous shoes by Aquazzura that I’ve been eyeing for quite a while, and they do follow up with a funny story. On my first day parading these beauties in Paris I ran into the lovely designer himself, Edgardo Osorio, in the streets. I mean, what are the chances, perhaps shoe fairies do exist?
All white (well almost), doesn’t happen very often in my daily life, due to practicalities and that I’m carrying around my little girl most of the day. So when I’ve been away on trips during fashion month I’ve taken the opportunity to bring along some lighter coloured favourites of mine.
Also say hello to my new Celine’s that I got in Milan a few weeks back, the Milan store is one of the best Celine stores I know as they always have the best pieces. Looking down on me from the shelves, I just couldn’t resist these checks, and my feet will be forever grateful, may the flat happy days continue!
