These late December festive times can be a little tricky, while being dressed for indoor festivities and cocktail parties allows you wearing open toe shoes and no tights in sight, you might end up looking slightly odd though on the way there, unless you have a door to door car service.

On another note, this season my favourite party wear are jumpsuits, when I think about it they always are, over the years I’ve ended up having a bigger selection of jumpsuits than dresses. I like how you can dress it up and down and never end up looking overdressed, rather effortless, plus it’s easy to pack along on holidays or roll up in weekend bags, wearable with flats, sneakers and heels, an all rounder!

I can highly recommend the jumpsuits by DvF, “the Queen of Wraps”, you’ll find a selection here, or if in doubt treat someone with a Net-a-Porter Gift Card, just can’t go wrong!

Rise and shine world, it’s a new week, and for most of us a very busy one with holidays just around the corner, cheer up, there’s light ahead!

Btw, “It Bags”, do you remember the expression that was overly used and might still be. Personally I was never really into it, when anything “qualified” the term it already felt so overexposed and passé. It might be one of the perks of working in the area though. Being under constant exposure of the fashion industry make many see things differently over the years. Speaking for myself, stripping down my wardrobe to the absolute clean lined timeless essentials would be ideal, I might never get there, but opting for the organised, non-cluttered part of your life sounds so good in theory. The latter explains my latest addition of arm candy, it was love at first sight with this understated bag from Gucci’s Holiday collection, clean, sharp and versatile, just the way I like it.

Black velvet x NET-A-PORTER Holiday

After long time searching high and low for something perfectly flared, this high waisted specimen by Proenza Schouler just fit like a glove. Culottes you may say, not quite, and not fully trousers either, but I’m just about to move into this pair and gonna carry them a long way, all through the festive season and beyond. How my ankles will feel about that when the cold sets in is a different story, but sometimes unhealthy sartorial choices come first.

On another note, some may find all black boring, but I surely never will. It’s all about playing around with different surfaces in shapes of great tailoring. If you’re looking for some timeless black investment pieces yourself you’ll find a great selection in Net-a-Porter’s Evening Room.

Cape up x NET-A-PORTER Holiday

December gloom? Not at all, yes days are getting shorter, but we’ve got the best ahead of us. Being an forever optimist with feet solidly grounded there’s light ahead. Either in form of Christmas sparkles, family reunions, goodwill for others or that little hope that Santa heard your prayers.

On my door a few Christmas treats arrived a little earlier than usual this year. With the risk of repeating myself to often, you can’t go wrong with classics, and a versatile wool cape and straight leg blue jeans are certainly some of them.
Running short of ideas of what to gift that special someone in your life or simply want to splurge yourself? Netaporter’s “Can’t-go-wrong” shop-room is the place to klick.

Blues

There’s something about mid blue denim, and I find my love for it happen more cyclical than anything else on the trend radar, if you could ever call denim a “trend”. After a few seasons of being absent on my front shelves in my wardrobe, I’ve a strong feeling I’m gonna dig out a few “old” blue denim pieces very soon and look for new additions come spring 2015. Stay tuned for more blues…

Boots of the season to me are beyond doubt the knee-lenght, ankle boots in all their glory, the longer boots have finally come out on top. If winter in London will end up as chilly and wet as predicted I’m happy I stocked up with a few pairs that also make it easier to wear skirts and dresses throughout the season.
On another note, a budget tip this week is this little collared velvet dress by Cos that I’ve already worn to bits, just remember to pair it with higher denier tights.

Happy Wednesday to you lovely ones!

Meanwhile, while the rest of the northern hemisphere looks like being buried under snow, London still encourages transitional dressing code, if this is the “new” winter, I’m definitely signing up for it.

Speaking of something London’ish, you can hardly go more London than the iconic Liberty  retailer, which amongst many attributes is famous for their iconic prints. After being offered to have a look on their latest additions to the Iphis collection including bags and other accessories, my eyes landed on this canvas tote, the perfect travel mate or when you carry a few things extra along.

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.

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.

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

outfit picks 09.10.2014

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!

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!
