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!

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!

How time flies, already mid-march, and I haven’t got my head around that proper winter never really came in the first place. Instead it’s all about embracing the beautiful signs of spring that already have arrived, the birds singing, cherry trees blooming and the optimism in the air. I’m celebrating with less layering and lighter colours, hurra!

For those of you talented and creative knitters out there, here are your next DIY projects!

Even the most persistent heel (mis) user have had to lay down their guard at this point, flats have come to stay in whatever shapes and forms. Personally I converted to the flat side post-pregnancy while pushing the baby buggy uncountable miles to get back into shape, and in my everyday juggling daily life climbing up and down stairs it made most sense to stick to it. Having that said a girl needs them gorgeous heels too of course, but you won’t see me grocery shopping in mine for now.

Louis Vuitton A/W 2014

Louis Vuitton A:W-14Images style.com

If there was one collection I was really looking forward to this season it had to be this one, Nicholas Ghesquière’s first collection for Louis Vuitton. After being a fan of Ghesquière work over the years at Balenciaga, it’s great to see him putting his signature stamp on Louis Vuitton, whom I bet btw, will get a whole new audience and consumers onboard from now on, sorry Marc Jacobs.
See the whole collection at style.com.

Last weekend I stopped by Paris for shows and showrooms. And just like that, fashion months weekly travels (almost), inspiring collections, the constant rush and bad guilt, resee of old friends, way too heavily packed suitcases(!), new introductions and late night parties, are over for this time.

Now, it’s time to start enjoying spring that’s on our doorstep shall we, best time of the year is ahead, and I’m gonna soak it up to the max with mini me. Happy Wednesday Everyone!
