London weather is crap right now and lightyears from summery, well, the miserable weather can be used as a good excuse for long catch-ups with friends, here at The Waterway yesterday, and as extra “comfort” I’ve got a new bag beauty by my side by Tod’s.
I’m not the one who shy away from sleek classics and right now I wouldn’t mind adding these beauties (new in stores) to my wardrobe, especially this suit by Stella McCartney, just gotta be mine!
Micro tweed jacket and trousers by Stella McCartney, stainless steel watch by Chanel, suede pumps by Gianvito Rossi and suede bag by Saint Laurent Paris.
London right now, rainy, 12 degrees and almost hostile….
Contrasting to last week when I was up in Oslo and celebrated the Norwegian Constitution Day in the most fabulous weather, who would have thought!
On the day I reached for black shiny surfaces, 2 new additions to my wardrobe, a pair of satin trousers and silk top, which I miraculously managed to keep clean all day through with my little 3 months girl (drooling) in my arms, guess I’m learning.
Alicia Vikander by Saskia Lawaks for Vogue Paris
Beauty Alicia Vikander has been one of my favourite Swedes since ‘A Royal Affair‘, one of my movie highlights of 2012. And except from looking gorgeous on red carpets and award ceremonies lately, she sported one of the cutest summery looks I’ve seen from Cannes this week, just loving this breezy look.
I’m hunting for a new wallet, but finding one that ticks all boxes is never easy, as the leather needs to be strong enough for every day wear (a wallet that easily scratches in my bag, don’t think so!), have a big enough coins room (how annoying is it not to be able to zip it!), pockets for cards and receipts (I have a seriously receipt-mess in my handbag right now!), and last but not least, something discreetly timeless. On top of my wallet wishlist are the Intrecciato by Bottega Veneta, starting from £445, pricy yes, but perfect!
As you may know my style is not very complicated and pretty simple, you may call me boring, but to me nothing beats timeless classics, and preferable in non-screamy colours. I would also dare to say opting for classic pieces of high quality will “save” you money in the long run. Whether you agree to this statement or not at least you’re more likely to use them many seasons right.
Anyway, I like mixing my basics (black denims and blazer) with structured pieces, like this python bag by Tod’s, a new baby in my closet.
Happy Monday noon everyone!
I’ve enjoyed my last week in Oslo with family and friends in the most surprisingly gorgeous weather, and haven’t had much time for updates. Stylewise it’s been pretty relaxed and right now I cannot get enough of these super soft dungarees with just the perfect wash.
Little Hedda on the other hand has finally got the chance to wave those little toes free in the air, bless the arrival of summer!
We all have a few staples in our wardrobe that we always tend to grab for, the few items you really love and never seem to get enough of, especially on days your creativity is like non existing. In my case these goodies are as simple as skinny jeans, along with some t-shirts, so basically the most basic you can imagine.
Needless to say I felt glorious happy the other day when I finally managed to slip into my favourite skinnies again after being separated way too long (8 months!), that feeling…..
Wishing you a fabulous Sunday noon and see you in Oslo where I’ll be heading tomorrow!
J Brand jeans, new silk blouse Topshop pre-fall, jacket by Isabel Marant (similar here), shoes by Saint Laurent Paris, bag by Celine, Tag Heuer watch, necklace, rings and bracelet by Monica Vinader, other jewellery De Beers and Balenciaga.
Having your beauty sleep interrupted by a hungry baby screaming way too early every morning surely does nothing good for your mirror reflection, and certainly not for the eye area. These two products have helped me to reduce puffy eyes these last 2 months along with litres of water, thumbs up!
If you’re a fan like me of Topshop’s Unique line then you’re probably too will welcome the launch of Unique’s first pre-fall and resort collections. Personally I tend to like capsule collections more than the mains and judging by what I’ve seen it looks quite promising in this case too. The pre-fall 2013 collection which include silky tailored pieces and accessories (with a Celine’ish feel) lands in stores and online today.
Right now I’m about to jump on a train to Paris along with my little girl, and if I ever thought I had difficulties packing and organising before I certainly have pushed the barrier a little further now.
Anyway, here’s close to what I’ve been wearing a lot lately, denims and flats, which simply suits my lifestyle and (London) weather, like when these images were snapped it went from sunny to rainy almighty.
Wishing you all a fab weekend!
