Ah, you know when you return home from an amazing holiday escape, an instant mood drop, feeling of restlessness, a feeling that can be described as holiday blues, which actually can lead to a depression with some. Well, personally I couldn’t be further away from being depressed, but still dreaming of Caribbean beaches and pure fun, on the other hand I guess that’s what holidays are for, dreams!
Anyway, without coming across as whiney, but rather due to my blues, I’ve felt totally uninspired this week sartorial wise, hoping to return strongly after tomorrow’s escape to Marrakech. See you there!
Being a black (and white) cat at heart does lead to a pretty monochrome wardrobe, hence it’s fun sometimes to invest in pieces that add that little extra but still goes well with what you already have in stock. A fun bomber is one way to go to mix up with classics, either it is a sporty, mannish or printed version. You’ll find loads of options out there at them moment, and personally I chose to go floral, an addition to my other floral less wardrobe.
Silk bomber by Dries Van Noten (also here), trousers by Studio Nicholson (similar here), t-shirt by Acne, boots by Miu Miu (similar here), bag by Acne, gold earpiece by Sophie Bille Brahe, watch by Larsson&Jennings, diamond rings and bracelet by Monica Vinader and De Beers.
I have a tendency of repeating myself, but some things are worth repeating, like the usage of a lovely soft knitted cardigan for instance. It’s the perfect throw-on and I especially like the contrasting with delicate silks. One of my new wardrobe favourites is this fluffy thing by Acne, that I’m gonna pair with a silky spaghetti strapped dress come late summer nights.
Happy Friday morning out there, hope you all had a great week, and starting to see the light of the tunnel wherever you’re based geographically.
Suddenly London turned into blooming warm spring, something I’ve embraced to the fullest. Well, despite the enthusiasm I won’t jump into full on summer outfits just yet, and I seriously need to work on de-paling my limbs before any more exposure to the world. That’s why culottes are such great transitional pieces, just the right amount of freedom this time of year, not to mention perfect to dress up and down.
Trousers by Victoria Beckham (also here), top by Studio Nicholson, shoes by Celine (similar by Gianvito Rossi here), bag by Celine (similar here), Ray Ban’s (also here), and watch by Larsson & Jennings, rings by Tom Wood, DeBeers and Maria Black, Saigon Summer lipstick by MAC.
At this time of year when we are all a sick tired of our coats and outerwear adding a belt has been my way to go on those chillier days. In fact I’ve been wearing my coats all over again and mixed them up with different belts, voila a new look and shape, well almost. Lets hope for the warmth now shall we!
Oh you spring, you sure had us fooled for a while!
Anyway, chillier or not, the sun has been out this week and so have I and my little supergirl, constantly by my side or in my arms whatever I do. With some common sense in mind that should have restricted my wardrobe to jeans and more childproof items by now, but that won’t happen, at least as long there’s no mudd involved!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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.

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!
Fashion months are hectic, and though I’ve shortened down my travels and missing out on NY this season, it feels like I’ve constantly been living in a suitcase since mid January. There are mixed reasons involved though, being a full time mum when I’m in the country do restrict your time for sure, but the thing is, I dread(!) unpacking almost as much as packing in the first place. As a result I’ve end up repacking and recycling a lot lately, like this warm knit I initially packed for Berlin, that has toured with me all through Europe, and I might give it a go in Paris too.
So tomorrow, I hope to see you there!
