Alexander Sprekenhus

Alexander Sprekenhus-1

I’m not a beauty junkie, and don’t try on new products very often, but this organic beauty line based on Argan Oil by Norwegian Alexander Sprekenhus are new favourites of mine and deserves a shout out. Not only will I recommend them as brilliant products that really give your hair a hydrating boost, they also tick the boxes regarding design and price level too, thumbs up!

If you’re a little confused and not sure whether to turn right or left  at the next crossing it’s sometimes good to pause and take a step back, that goes for the world of superficial sartorial choices as well.

In these fast moving and visual bombarding times it’s easy to get carried away, good or bad, if you’re “feeling lost” grab for the basics. A timeless biker, soft knit and everyday heel are included on my list. The latter are new species in my wardrobe that I think I’m on my way developing a love story with, great walkable sling backs are a rare find, please make more of them, anyone?

Good morning out there, hope you all had a wonderful week and feeling ready to meet November!

Due to the surreally mild and dry London weather lately (21 degrees, I’m not complaining!) transitional dressing continues. I wouldn’t mind this climate and easy dressing represent the “new winter”,  however we’ve been warned, a record freezing winter is just around the corner, feeling just as surreal though…

I don’t want to try to intellectualise my choices of outfits, but in these turtle neck times, don’t forget about the turtle neck dress, I’m loving this pocket friendly style by Ganni, an easy go-to-piece that I surely see the usage of this winter with tights and boots.

Celine Resort 2015

Celine Pre Spring 2015Celine.com

Phoebe Philo continues what she does the best, another pre-collection that feels fresh, new, but still has what has become so very Celine. The french house have lately kept their pre-collections under seal, and the image release of  this highly anticipated Resort 2015 collection coincides with the release of the ads fronted by what has become Celine in house model Daria Werbowy. Feeling inspired anyone, I surely do.

Over the years I’ve learned to narrow down my wish list for the beginning of every new season, since I like to mix it up with timeless basics already in stock. This season my list included the rather obvious ones, a blanket cape, a few coat assembles, more chunky knits (can’t get enough), knee high boots (still haven’t found), and high waisted A-line skirts. With the latter as one of my new wardrobe favourites as it’s super versatile and everlasting, you can surely sign me up for leather and velvet versions too.

Hoop hoop

Accessory trend this season, the single statement earring, we’ve seen it for a while and we love it right. Be ready to embrace the hoops too, my personal favourites, and more easy to come across if you don’t want to dig deep into your Celine pockets.

Mid October and London temperatures are perfect, just perfect to sport bare legs alongside something that keeps you warm. Better take the opportunity while we can, before we know it it’s time to wrap up head to toe, and the black tights I usually dread so much. However, thanks to lovely 60′d mod inspirations from the Saint Laurent house this season I won’t mind really, now the hunt for the best black tights begins…

Happy Sunday you lovely ones!

If you haven’t yet tired of cosy, long sleeved, chunky turtlenecks, stay in there. I’ll most definitely keep drowning in mine along with the usual basics, no rocket science going on here, keeping things simple and comfortable, with a touch of print. Latest print addition is this bag by Sophie Hulme, the perfect compromise between clean lines, colour and functionality.

Wishing you all a glorious weekend!

Denim + Slingbacks

I love a denim+slingbacks combo, and these specimen by Dolce & Gabbana might possible find their way to my shoe collection at some point. Not that I would’ve mind any of the other beauties here either, then my Thursday outfit would have been solved!

After coming to terms with summertime sadness blues, fall has officially arrived in London. And like every year it’s not so sad after all as we can finally add those extra layers and bring out new seasons coats, scarves and ponchos. Latest addition in my own outerwear closet is this wool coat by Ganni, a chic, basic, timeless piece that I’ve been looking for a long time having had no intention digging too deep in the pockets.
May the layering begin!

70′s nod

Louis Vuitton ss15Louis Vuitton ss15, images Style.com

After several weeks of models strutting on SS15 runways, presentations, energy and mood in different cities, either observed closeup or from afar, there’s especially one trend that over shines everything, the references to the 70′s.

From my personal point of view Nicolas Ghesquiere for Louis Vuitton won the nod to the 70′s with his typical stamp and forward looking eyes. And if there’s something I’ll be sporting very soon may it be high waisted A-line skirts paired with fitted blouses or turtlenecks, shades of brown, and don’t forget to bring the velour out, yum!

Can a girl ever have enough of soft, chunky, cashmere turtle knits?
Judging from what’s dominating my wardrobe shelf in the knit department, apparently not. In my opinion, there’s nothing as cosy and versatile during fall as snuggling up in an oversized knit, preferable in shades of grey. Bags, shoes, come and go, but if there’s one item I find really worth investing in this is it.

Wishing you all a glorious sunny 1′st of October!
