Dungarees and Air Max? Nope, I’m not preggy again (!!!), neither on my way to the gym, certainly not fit for the cocktail party, but suits me perfect when on the run. My little girl will hopefully (or perhaps not!) be walking in not too long and I’ll probably be very glad I’ve stocked up with comfy, runnable footwear when those days come along.
From a sartorial point of view I like the freshness, or confusion is more like it, a pair of sneakers adds to most outfits, especially when they come in happy colours like these or cool prints.

Dungarees by Current/Elliott (also here and here), v-neck tee by Acne, coat by Stella McCartney, Nike Air Max, bag by Tod’s, and Ray Ban’s.

Multitasking

Happy Sunday everyone!
Sorry for a slightly slow “comeback” but I’ve had my hands pretty full lately, and though I have got dressed every morning(!), having it caught on camera hasn’t been first priority or simply forgotten, but I’ll get back in there for sure when days run a little smoother.

Some sort of spring has finally arrived in London (so happy!), but I’ll definitely wait a little longer before bringing out floaty, light fabrics and bare legs, Anyway, it’s wonderful to air those feet that has been locked in way too long this winter, don’t you think?

Last minute

One week to go before Christmas and when I woke up this morning the number of prepared gifts in my house was equal to none, same procedure as every year I’d say. So this whole day I devoted to Christmas shopping and though I had to practically fight my way through crowds of people in the streets of London, I got a little into that Christmas spirit which to me is pretty equal to stress, in a good way though. Anyway, stress or not, at the end I cooled down with a glass of champagne, caviar and oyster’s at Harrods, perfect after a shopping spree. Happy Saturday eve everyone!

Chinatown

Today I got totally surprised by heavy rainfall and like most people around I hadn’t thought of bringing an umbrella along, luckily I was in Chinatown so I found shelter in one of the many restaurant and enjoyed a dim sum lunch and green tea while I waited for the waterfall to stop, quite cozy actually, despite I was on my own.

Yesterday eve

Wow, I had so much fun yesterday, me and my friend Maggie’s party turned out a success and we ended up dancing into early morning at Dorsia, a club in South Kensington with great DJ’s. Massive thanks for all kind gratulations and to those of you who celebrated with us!

I wore a new silk dress from Topshop, necklace by Merle O’Grady, bracelet J Dauphin, clutch YSL and shoes Camilla Skovgaard.

Coat

Wow, the cold is here but I guess that’s how it’s suppose to be mid October, I’m so grateful for the last month of fantastic warm weather but now it’s time to adjust. I’ve got a few new pieces that has been longing to be worn on chilly days, like this coat by Isabel Marant, I love the shape of the dropped shoulders and it goes with everything. Have you found your coat yet?

Wishing you all a wonderful day!

Images taken on Sunday, I wore pants from Cos, silk top Burfitt, boots Topshop, bracelet Acne, watch Michael Kors, Ray Ban’s and bag by Celine.

Loose fit

Since I got back from Paris I’ve only been wearing cozy knitwear, can’t get enough of them, and until the weather requires warm jackets I’m gonna keep mine on. I’m so thrilled I finally got to wear my Celine loafers that I bought a couple of weeks ago, haven’t been able to wear them earlier due to my little foot accident, I hopefully woke up every morning in Paris trying to get them on, but no. This Sunday though my foot slipped right into, and gosh they are comfortable, has some kind of magic pillow sole inside.

Oki, gotta run to join a fab birthday girl for dinner, have a lovely eve you too!

I wore knit from Zara, jeans Cos, watch Michael Kors, shoes and bag Celine.

Nostalgia

Hope you all had a lovely weekend and that you’ve been just as lucky as us with the weather. I think this might be the most sunny weekend we’ve had in London for ages and I tried my best to soak it up.
Yesterday I strolled around in my hood, late brunch at Le Pain Quotidien and in the late noon I watched the Rise of the Planet of the Apes at cinema, despite what critics may say I loved it, it’s incredible well done, so emotional, and at the end of it I found myself perhaps a little too enthusiastic for my surrounding audience.
Having that said I’ve been a total geeky fan of the original ape movie, Planet of The Apes from 1968, since I was a kid, and I recorded it from TV as a 10 year old. I could watch it again and again, totally hooked, until my baby brothers sadly recorded Thomas the Tank Engine all over my tape, ok, enough of nostalgia.

I wore pants and shoes from Cos, knit and bag by Acne, watch Tagheuer, ring YSL and Ray Ban’s.

My weekend

It’s Monday noon and I’m still a bit tired after this weekend which ended quite late throughout, dinners with friends and a little clubbing. But there’s not much time for being lazy now as I’ve got some serious packing to do for my NY trip and a whole list of boxes that need to be ticked.

Anyway, here’s me on Saturday when I chilled at a typical London pub and headed for an early dinner at Massimo at late noon, the latest a highly recommended restaurant at Trafalgar Square, their oysters are just jammy!

I wore jumper by Acne, leather skirt Alexander Wang, watch Tagheuer, sandals and bag Celine,

Doglife

Wow, what a wonderful day we’ve had in London today, great temperatures and sunshine and this afternoon I met up with my lovely friend Johanna and Maggie (a cute little dog she’s dogsitting) at The Waterway and cooled down over a glass of wine. Little Maggie was just adorable and so well behaved, and for a second and one second only I played with the idea of getting a dog. Anyway, I took the sunny opportunity to wear one of my summery dresses that will probably be put aside any day soon now.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

I wore dress and boots Isabel Marant, old vest I forgot where it’s from (Gestuz perhaps?), watch Tagheuer, bracelet Acne, bag Celine and Ray Ban’s.

Weekend

Though the warm summer weather has been hiding lately I’ve had a pretty good week with my mum visiting. As I for once had loads of spare time we enjoyed whatever London had to offer, shopping, great dinners and wines, observing people passing at the outdoors servings in Soho, DVD’s at home and my mum raiding my closet. I was also thrilled when I finally came across the ring from YSL I’ve been looking for, a little treat to myself that has constantly been sold out in my size.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Images taken today after a late lunch with my friend Johanna, I wore top Cos, skirt Whyred, shoes Zara, bag Acne and ring YSL.

Door

It feels like fall has arrived in London, leaves on the ground and a raw chill in the air, I want more of summery hot days, especially now when I have some more time in handy.
Earlier this week I did my last post for Flingly for now, where I’ve worked as fashion editor since December last year, maybe I’ll pop up there in the future again, but for now, I hope to be part of new exciting projects and want to keep all doors open.

Images taken yesterday with my mum, I wore shorts H&M, top and belt Acne, jacket Isabel Marant, shoes Cos, watch Tagheuer, bag Celine and Ray Ban’s.

Chilling

Today I’ve just been chilling, I love Saturdays, sleeping, breakfast at Le Pain Quotidien in the sunshine, a stroll in Covent Garden, James Bond on TV and now I’m getting ready to a barbeque birthday party. I’ll try to post before I leave into the night.

City

If you’re a shirt-lover like me I and looking for the right silky surface cotton-mix then a tip is to head over to Cos, they include the most perfect fitted shirt (that sold out everywhere in London last season) also this season and it comes in orange and blue as well.

Images taken earlier this week when I met up my lovely Julie for lunch in my old work environment, the city. I wore shirt Cos, leather skirt Zara, sandals and bag Celine, watch Tagheuer, bracelet Kenneth Jay Lane and sunnies Ray Ban’s.

Italians

Earlier this week I met up with my friend Sarah and we headed to the Somerset House for a nibble in the sunshine at Tom’s Cafe. For the moment there’s an exhibition called “Masters of Style” ongoing, featuring iconic images from Italian designers Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Salvatore Ferragamo, Gucci, Missoni and Prada, unfortunately we didn’t have time to drop by but I won’t miss out on this one.

I wore an old cotton dress H&M, sandals Kurt Geiger, bag and sunnies Celine, watch Michael Kors and bracelets Intermix.
