Clean lines

Studio Nicholson2

London based label Studio Nicholson has been on my radar for a while, and I love the brand’s minimal no-fuzz esthetique with focus on clean separates and excellent choices of fabrics. If you’re already a fan of The Row you’re gonna love Nick Wakeman’s design, and it’s gonna cost you a whole lot less.

Relax babe

Relaxed silhouettes are right up my street whatever the trend barometer, and to me it’s not only about opting for an effortless look, but who doesn’t love feeling comfortable. The underlying in many of my sartorial choices is based on just that, the feeling of the fabric and the perfect tailoring. These wide trousers for instance tick all the boxes, and can be dressed up and down in a million ways. I know I’ve mentioned it before, but wide trousers are amongst my favourites this season!

Cashmere jumper by J.Crew, trousers by Vicktoria Beckham (also here and shorter version here), coat by Stella McCartney, Adidas sneakers (also here), necklace by Marte Frisnes and bag by Acne.

Miu Miu

Miu Miu Lace Ankle boots

Lace-up kitten heeled booties are having a moment, and though the competition between Saint Laurent and Miu Miu is pretty fierce, my favourite is this model by the latter, just as good worn bare legged as with jeans, and super comfortable! Yours for £610.

Bomber

Vogue Paris April 2014-Grand Bleu-Andrea DiaconuVogue Paris April 2014, Grand Bleu

Vogue Paris April issue offers loads of inspiration as usual, though the water theme in editorial “Grand Bleu”, involves a little too much wet-clothing for my own liking, I was reminded of what’s missing in my closet, the perfect bomber jacket, yum!

Overalls could potentially be the most difficult and dangerous item to wear if you’re more than 10 years old, but since I like living in a sartorial world without many rules nor restrictions I never really bothered. Overall’s have to come stay in my wardrobe and they are god damn comfortable too.
Happy Weekend Everyone!

Overalls by Frame Denim, knit by FWSS, shoes by Isabel Marant (also here), watch by Larsson&Jennings, pouch by Comme des Garcons and sunnies by Céline.

Home lounging

Loungewear

Warmer months ahead meaning lighter home loungewear, and that’s pretty much what I wear myself as soon as I enter my doorstep. I never seem to get enough of Eberjey’s beautiful soft sets and wouldn’t mind this delicate version too.

Dries – the Mix Master

Dries Van Noten always delivers beautiful, opulent, feminine, edgy and and contrasting collections, and fall 2014 is no exception. Here’s a little insight into the Belgium designers work and if you’re around Paris before 31′st of August, then stopping by Musée Des Arts Décoratifs could be worth a visit, where the artist ongoing exhibition is held.

Little less loud

Yeah yeah, I know it’s mostly about arty prints this season, but I still find myself sticking to simple and monochrome looks as far away from loud as it gets. If you’re looking for revolutionary, too-coo-for-school, fast fashion, and most of the time short lived tips, you’d better look elsewhere than here, cause this space is about those basics you can wear again and again with quality in mind. Gosh, that all sounded boring, but these basics aren’t for sure, a pair of cropped wide trousers like these are on my top-tip-list this season, if you haven’t got yours already!

Cropped pants by Tod’s SS14 (similar style here), mohair knit by Topshop Boutique, mules by Tibi (also here and here), bag by Gucci, watch by Larsson&Jennings, diamond rings by Monica Vinader.

Optimism

Spring outfit inspiration

Ok, so I’m perhaps a little carried away by the wonderful warm weather we’ve been blessed with in London at the moment. Hopefully it won’t be long though before we can sport full on springy outfits, so this year I’ll be prepared, and I wouldn’t mind stocking up with these lovely pieces new in stores!

Bag by Balenciaga, Ray Ban’s, cropped top by Calvin Klein Collection, shorts by Acne and pointy flats by Jimmy Choo.

Pump it up!

Body Double-Gisele Bundchen-Vogue Paris November 2013

Vogue Paris November 2013

It’s that time of year again, wonderful sunny days in bikini’s are getting closer every day, dreamy and terrifying at the same time, especially since I personally, have not been the good girl I intended to be this year. Seeing friends being converted gym enthusiast in their nike gear doesn’t make me feel any better about it either. Well, there’s still time to roll up those sleeves, lets do it!!!

Liberating

Beautiful coats, oh don’t we love them, but honestly, being a jumper kinda girl, it feels quite liberating to leave it behind now and then when temperatures raises. If you’re not already tired of your coats and layers that carried you through winter I bet you’re one of the few. We’ve got the best times ahead of us sartorial-wise, or what do you think?

Ok, all this talk about flats lately, a girl need them heels too, so this week I’ve taken these new specimen by Aquazzura out in daylight too. Knit by  & Other Stories, trousers by Stella McCartney (also here), shoes by Aquazzura (similar here and here), bag by Céline, Ray Ban’s (also here), Tag Heuer watch.

The Nouveau

Gucci Nouveau Shoulder Bag

If you wanna go tribal this season in a more toned down way, a fringed or tasselled bag is one way to go, and it works so perfectly well with any minimal and clean look. My Friday pick lands on this orange Nouveau bag by Gucci, that also comes in a longer fringe suede version if yore more of a maximalist. Yours for £1,360 and you’ll find both versions here, yum!
