After some pretty dark and London-cloudy-months it finally looks like days are getting a little brighter with the sun popping out more frequently, and I bet(!) no one is happier than me! The sunglasses are back on and this oversized wayfarer pair by Acne that I got last year will definitely be spotted on my nose come spring as well.
November so far (luckily!) has not been too chilly in London, with temperatures around 10 degrees heavy winter gear and hats have hardly been needed, yeah! We all know that can change in the matter of seconds so I’ve been careful to enjoy lighter outfits whenever I could.
As you may have picked up I’m all in for comfortable dressing these days, and when I came across these 2 super soft quilted pieces with elastic waistline (hurra!) I got it on the spot. These are new favourites that I will wear as a one piece by just changing accessories and shoes, or worn as separates.
Now, I’m gonna snuggle up in the sofa in another cosy outfit, take a deep breath and wait for my homemade cantarella pie to finish in the oven, wishing you all a fabulous weekend wherever you are!
Ok I know, jumper and jeans again, but oh I wish it wasn’t so, I’d rather sport shorts, cute tops and summery dresses in London, wishful thinking these days. Anyway in order to “lift” what has become my uniform this summer, I jump into a pair of good looking heels, going all over practical would just make this whole Northern Europe weather scenario even more sad.
Yesterday’s outfit, I wore jeans and belt by Isabel Marant, cotton jumper by Topshop Boutique, sandals by Prada, bag Celine and Ray Ban’s
Ok, I know, lots of jumpers and trousers lately, but it hasn’t been warm enough to wear much else. Without sounding too negative I’m actually happy I didn’t stock up many summery things for hot days in the city this spring, how sad would that be, just seeing them hanging there. But I really hope I’m wrong and that things will come around, half summer in and half summer left today.
Anyway, this is what I wore on Saturday, apparently I felt like volume on that day, but I blame the wind for the unintended voluminous wild hair. Silk trousers from Topshop Boutique, jumper from Nowhere, shoes Alexander Wang, bag Celine, bracelets Cooee and Ray Ban’s.
On Thursday eve I was out and about in the London night and I jumped in my good old Louboutin’s, they are so beautiful, but needless to say killers for my feet, well any feet I guess? I wore these silk trousers I got a couple of months ago from Topshop Boutique, my mum convinced me in the fitting room to get them and now there are no regrets (thanks mum!), loving the tailored balloon shape and the high waist, would really like to pair them with a cropped top and sandals another day.
Length of dresses can sometimes be discussed, I mean I love my mini’s but sometimes there’s a very tiny line between a dress or top, like this silk top I got last week labeled “dress” in store. With my 5ft 8in the dress didn’t cover enough for me to be comfortable wearing it like a normal mini, especially cause of the light fabric. When something is as mini as this my “trick” is to wear it with cropped leggings, and voila, any wind throw or bending situation solved.
I know, I’ve totally fallen for the sporty vibes, in fact I haven’t been this “sporty’ish” since I quit my alpine career years ago, but who can blame me, these sneakers are just to comfortable once they are on. Anyway, I jumped into this laid back outfit on a sunny Sunday, brunching with a friend in South Ken, and until the true summer is here and I can wear my mini’s and shorts with big loose jumpers (a favorite combo!), I’ll pair them with oversized jackets.
Have a lovely day everyone!
The weather has been absolutely gorgeous this weekend and for the first time this year it was warm enough for me to stroll around in sandals and t-shirt, ok, I carried around a jacket as well knowing it would be cooler later in the day.
I prefer to keep my outfits pretty simple in these moving days and constantly carry around a pair of sneakers just in case I need to roll up my sleeves.
I’ve been stuck in my jeans lately, not very exciting I know, but to be honest I put most of the energy towards the moving process and both my outfits ahead and my blog might be suffering a little, hope to make it up when it’s all done guys.
Anyway I’ve been a little into plexi lately as you might have seen and I’ve come across a great Swedish brand called COOEE, that makes just that kind of bracelets I’ve been looking for, plexi+delicate+edgy, and a good thing is it doesn’t totally empty your wallet, definitely worth checking out!
Images taken yesterday while checking out my future hood, I wore jeans J Brand, silk tee by Harmione de Paula, kashmere coat Topshop Boutique, bag Celine, bracelets from Cooee, shoes Acne and Ray Ban’s.
Ok, from now on I’ll be posting here as normal, my mum has left London and this holiday season has come to an end, time to roll up those sleeves, get back to business and try to stick to those new year resolutions. I always like to see the beginning of year as a blank page that you’ve got one year to fill, day 3 of January and mine is pretty empty but I’ll catch up I promise.
Images taken on a shopping spree with my mum on Saturday, didn’t buy much for myself but I’ve got to admit I’m pretty good at pushing my company to. I wore a shirt by Dior, angora knit H&M, skirt Whyred, coat Topshop Boutique, boots Giambattista Valli and bag Celine.
Again a very busy day and right now I’m doing some obsessive late cleaning at my place, my best friend from Norway is visiting this weekend and though we’re not gonna spend much time inside our tiny flat I want it to be as bright and cozy as possible. The fridge is stuffed with delicatessen and wine from Whole Foods, my favorite food market in London, and the only thing missing is flowers on the table, something that need to get solved!
When I was a kid I wasn’t as thrilled to find soft presents under the Christmas tree as harder ones, don’t get me wrong, I always appreciated what I got but soft packages those days most likely contained something practical, home knitted jumpers and socks, perhaps not what makes a 8 year old jump to the roof. Well, the joy of receiving soft parcels has definitive changed for me and when I unwrapped this lovely cashmere jumper by Carven on my birthday a couple of weeks ago it was all happiness and childish joy.
I had such a cozy evening on Saturday eve, the late dinner at Hawksmoor was fab. We had pre booked our prime rib piece in advance just to make sure we got what we came for.
I wore a silk dress Topshop Boutique, leather leggings Zara, leather jacket Vibe Johansson, bag Chanel and Louboutins.
Today I headed back to the City for a lunch date, unfortunately the light was not on my side today either so couldn’t get as much work done as I wanted. What is it with London, are we in a snow globe with light filter.
I felt way too formal in my shorts, top and coat so I tried to compensate with belt and ear cuff. Shorts Zara, top Cos, belt Acne, ear cuff Line&Jo, booties Topshop Boutique, coat Oasis, bag Alexander Wang
