Jeans, a checked shirt and slippers, something I’ve been sporting a lot on the go lately but never managed to catch on camera. Not this time around either apparently as I had already jumped into my booties by the time I managed to bring the camera out. Speaking of these Dolce heels, I’ve received so many mails from you readers about where to find them, and I can gladly tell you they stock same style model at Net-a-Porter right now.
Ok first, this is not in Paris right now(!). These images are 2 weeks back in NY, when sporting minis’ and shorts were the natural choice cause of the heat. Again a favourite combo of mine, max+mini and a fabulous pair of shoes that I was so happy to come across over the pond. Sadly one of them came faulty so I returned them, and the staff couldn’t find me another pair. So shoes for one day, well, sometimes I like to think that things happen for a reason, though they were 2 beautiful things, and I loved the mirrored heels.
Dressing the last month has been a little challenging, you know when you’re at a stage when it’s not really clear to people if it’s actually a bump you’re carrying or if you just had jolly days with food. Well, what to do, thankly I love maxi silhouettes and oversized jumpers but last week I dropped it all and left home like I normally would without “that” in mind.
I’m back in London after a few days constantly on my feet, today and next few days I will take my time to rest, and go through tons of images and impressions from the last couple of weeks, before I turn my nose to Paris later this week.
Sorry for not posting many outfit images but they will come for sure, like this one about a week too late, when I headed for the Acne show, wearing a mix of Acne and others. This wrap skirt is by the way is one of my favourite purchases recently, the rusty green colour screams fall, and since I bought it one size up than I normally do I can probably wear it all through fall and with tights when it gets colder.
And oh, say hello to my new patent boots, a purchase from NY, with a perfectly fierce pointy toe, a little mod’s, just the way I like it.
Good morning folks! First I’d like to say a big thank you to all your best wishes I received the other day, it’s been overwhelming, you’re simply the best!!!
London Fashion Week has come to an end and and moved on to Milan where I’ll be joining tomorrow for a couple of days, days are moving so fast and I’m wondering what happened with September so far, it kind of escaped me. Over the weekend in London we got our first taste of fall, the leaves have gone more yellow, and the breeze a little chillier, but as long as it’s wonderful bright and sunny there’s nothing to complain about right, just throw on a warmer jacket or knitwear and you’re sorted, love this time of year!
Despite Jonny Johansson’s source of inspiration, Wrecking Ball, behind Acne’s SS13 collection presented yesterday, which included lots of “pretty and white”, it was the black leather and more tailored looks and pieces I liked the most. The collection as a whole has a mix of romantic western, music and street vibes, where the clash of romanticism and tough at times worked for me while others not. However, I can see girls like Hanne Gaby Odiele rocking the most extravagant maxi parachute skirts with rock printed tees come spring, while I’ll be eyeing the leather pieces, off shoulder top and striped suit. See the whole collection here.
Thanks a lot for your best wishes the other day, I survived my little emergency, going through some torture for feeling so much better afterwards was definitely worth it!
Anyway, this time of year it’s usually about transitional dressing, which is my favourite time, when you can wear fall’s new skirts, dresses, coats and boots with bare legs. Personally I’m so into dark, rich colours this coming season, especially royal hues, but I’ll wait a little longer before I’ll bring them all out in the shape of a fall wardrobe, after all it’s still 24 degrees out there.
Old mohair cardi by Acne, jeans by Current?Elliott, shoes Miu Miu, bracelet Hermes and bag by Celine.
Another week has flown away and tomorrow I’m heading for my first vacation in ages, 1 week in Cyprus with family, can’t wait to feel burning sand between my toes, feeling the sea breeze and stroll around in hardly-there-fabrics.
Well, as London is back to it’s usual London-weather we haven’t been overwhelmed by heat lately, but shorts and long sleeves have been working sort of, so I’ve added a few new pieces to my wardrobe, like this super soft angora jumper by Acne and lace shorts from Topshop. I wore them earlier this week with shoes by Camilla Skovgaard, bag by Celine, watch Tagheuer and sunnies by Ralph Lauren.
Wishing you all a fab Thursday eve!
Yesterday I stopped quickly by a press office and had a closer look on a few fall and resort collections and these were among my favorites pieces, metallic jeans by J Brand, a gorgeous printed tracksuit by Christopher Kane, Acne’s shirts and jumpers, and this cute little leopard cross over bag by Coach hitting stores in August.
Woop woop, how are you guys coping out there in dreadfully wet, chilly and windy England at the moment? Getting dressed for these lower temperatures that comes with a certain rain guarantee in mid July is so not inspiring and it feels like we’re in some sort of limbo. Well I surrender and have booked myself away from London most of August, so heavily needed!
Last week we had one day though with tendencies of clear skies, and I dared to step out in this outfit and left my jacket and umbrella at home, however by 4pm it was pouring down again, what can I say. I wore shirt by Daniel Silver for Acne, Topshop dungarees, shoes Celine, bag by Givenchy, watch Tagheuer, necklace Tiffany’s, bracelet by Cooee and Ray Ban’s.
Yesterday my good old Mac decided to call it a day, followed by me being close to several heart attacks and 4 days of waiting for service at the genius bar, where hopefully some of my not-yet-backed-up-files can be restored, nerve-wracking!!!
Well well, not much too do about it now, so here’s what I wore last day of couture last week, easy-breezy relaxing, thank you Vogue for featuring me!
I wore trousers by Isabel Marant, lace tee by Acne, sandals Prada, bag by Celine, bracelets Cooee and Ray Ban’s.
Paris was wonderfully warm this week so at the day of Chanel and Givenchy I decided to wear something not too figure hugging and jumped into this airy voluminous skirt and blouse that kind of looked like a one piece when they came together. I love pieces like this that can be styled and put together in various ways, which is something I always keep in mind when feeling tempted in stores, for us normal living souls it’s about maximizing it’s utility right?
We’ve finally got a little more taste of summer in London and I don’t need to be asked twice to make the best out of it, though I’d would be very happy to see more of the sun itself. Anyway, sun or not, I felt inspired to wear a hint of tropics in form of this bag paired with an otherwise monochrome look yesterday. As we constantly need to bring along an umbrella and jumper these days the size of this bag is perfect even if I optimally wish it contained a beach towel and “beachy” literature.
Sorry for lousy updates the last couple of days but I’ve been celebrating midsummer with friends the whole weekend enjoying soused herrings, baby potatoes, snaps and not enough sleep. Though I had so much fun I now feel like checking into to a relaxing spa, hehe!
Sadly I’ve been a lousy photographer as well this weekend, but here’s what I wore on Thursday, shorts + blazer, an easy going classic combo I’ll sport more often. Old blazer from Zara, shorts and loafers by Acne, blouse from Mango, bag by Celine, watch Tagheuer and Ray Ban’s.
One of my finds during the sales was this skirt by Balenciaga, I totally fell for the shiny fabric and shape which kind of has a life of it’s own. Keeping the short length in mind I decided to wear it with flats to tone it down a little earlier this week, but this skirt has a million styling opportunities so it won’t be the last time you’ll see it here for sure.
Wishing you all a happy midsummer-weekend whatever you are up to!
