On Friday I’m off to Barcelona with 7 for All Mankind as part of their 7 Festivals project - it’ll be my second time in my new favourite city in a month so I’m feeling pretty lucky! Word on the street (aka Google) is that the sun is supposed to be out in force, so hopefully there will be a bit of beach time happening.
I’ve never been the best packer – partly because I like to be prepared for any and all circumstances, and partly because I always travel with at least two cameras, multiple lenses and my laptop. I’m always the person tentatively staring at scales when it comes to check in at the airport. Thankfully it’s always easier in summer, so the plan is to just add a few bikinis and t-shirts to what I’ve shot above. If you’re interested I’ll be posting plenty of cobblestone streets, blue skies and festival fun over on Instagram here.
Shop Caroline’s look: Leather trim coat, red blazer, white shirt, black trousers and Caroline Issa for LK Bennett heels
I always love seeing a woman who can pull of power dressing! And this is the perfect way to approach suiting a little more casually, while still keeping the whole look polished and tailored. Just mix up separate pieces; non-matching jacket and trousers, add a hint of colour and break it up with playful heels (these pumps are part of the collection Caroline designed for LK Bennett).
Looking good in tailored styles is more about the fit, and less about subscribing to the traditional idea of a suit. A quality shirt and well made blazer can go a long way.
The Ragged Priest shorts from Topshop
What started out innocently as a pair of navy blue New Balance 574′s over a year ago has developed into a fully fledged love (perhaps obsession) for workout gear. Technically these could be normal shorts, but with the double mesh layers and leather racing stripe, I knew they were destined for the gym.
I know I’m not the only one. Two years ago very few of my friends would have owned exercise gear, or had multiple pairs of Nikes sitting by the front door. Now it’s a different story. Not that I’m complaining; a little exercise can do both the mind and body so much good, and if it takes little workout gear to get me in the mood, I’m all for it. I wear these shorts with my Nike crop top and Roshe Runs; I’m all about the black and white combos.
