Sales picks up to 50%

Netaporter sales picks 16.06.2015 - The Northern Light

Summer sales has officially kicked off in Europe, just in time for summer to finally arrive, it strikes me every year how the sales conveniently coincides when the actual season begins, mind the lack of heat this year, now is the time to strike on those items you’ve been eyeing. Today Net-a-Porter’s summer sales kicked off with up to 50%, with additional designers and products to be added to the sales in the coming weeks. But unless you can allow yourself jumping mindless in the sales trolley, think a few steps further and invest in pieces that you wanna slip into right now but also carries you into next season and further. The latter explains my sales picks of today, mind the preach, but forward thinking has become my mantra (at least most of the time…). Happy sales shopping!

Denim jacket by Chloé, beach towel by Toteme, bikini by Missoni, twill shorts by Acne Studios, canvas bag by Victoria Beckhambracelet by Marnisuede pumps by Jimmy Choo, leather jewellery box by Smythson. (From 30 to 50% off)

Breaking patterns

It occurred to me the other day that we’re already in June, though April and May always have a tendency to slip through my fingers, the unawareness this time around is that juggling too many things at once, has led to my autopilot taking the lead, however I’m immensly happy to be equipped by one when overloaded.

It’s time for a change though, and sartorial-wise I’m feeling in the mood of trying on new elements. Being a “femasculine minimalist” at heart I rarely step outside that territory, and I believe I’m not alone. In a conscious attempt of releasing myself from knits and monochromes, I’m into exploring new shapes and prints without investing too much on my side trip. Newly launched brand Finery offers just that with highstreet price points(!), contemporary designs, with a little playfulness, like this jumpsuit for instance, that I’m gonna wear to bits this summer!!
You can also find a great selection of new pieces in the edit on Finery London.

Jumpsuit by Finery, shoes by Jimmy Choo, bag by Chloé (find a selection of Chloé bags here), watch by Isabel Marant, gold necklaces by DeBeers, TomWood and Marlene Juhl Jørgensen, diamond rings by Monica Vinader, claw ring by Maria Nilsdotter.
