This may not be the most imaginative combo, but I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest that these boyfriend jeans could in-fact be the very best pair around. I’m a big fan of Melbourne based denim brand Nobody, but bias isn’t clouding my judgement. They really are that good. It’s the ultimate shade of blue, stonewashed to perfection, with super relaxed fit that has just the right amount of slouch. Delicious.
The only down side is that this wash isn’t available online. Although I’m sure if you asked the guys at Nobody nicely, they would be more than happy to help you out. Then just add a (slouchy) tee, belt and a simple sandal/loafer/pump and you’re done.
Big thanks to my favourite Dane Marie, who kindly turned the camera on me when we were shooting together earlier this week.

The remainder of my outfit from earlier in the week when I gave my hair the chop. I’m not much of an evening dresser – overtly elegant styles don’t really do it for me – but I am a fan of lace (namely in black). So for me the solution is pairing it with patent loafers and an over-sized blazer. The masculine pieces balance out the femininity of the lace top, and the black skinny jeans keep it casual. Too easy.

I was all about the tentative trims and infrequent visits to the hairdresser for years. The goal was luscious mermaid hair – but sadly my hair is destined to sit four inches below the shoulder and no longer. Then in March I was swayed by the growing list of beautiful ladies who had embraced the chop (Daria, Karlie Kloss, Man Repeller et al) and cut off an inch or two.
Ironically, after years of trying to grow it, the length came back pretty quickly (I blame the London water). So this week I took visit to the good people at Easton Regal Hairdressing; rather conveniently located in East London (and walking distance from my place). The salon’s namesake speaks the truth, it’s regal alright. Two stories, spacious, filled with natural light and hardwood floors; basically all the good stuff.
Jade touched up my roots with just the kind of delicate hand I like; subtle and ashy. Then Holly Rose took off some length and added a few layers. These ladies are my kind of hair stylists; they have their own touch but still know how to keep things natural.
The reality is, when you find a good hairdresser you have to hold on to them! So if you’re new to London or in the market for a hair stylist, get in touch with the fine people at Easton Regal here.

I’ve always had a thing for green (as evidenced here, here and here), and while I can’t quite pinpoint why, it’s nice to break free from the usual black, white and grey every now and then. This waistcoat/vest/gilet by Acne is both strange and awesome all at once. Structured minimalism and bold colour; pretty much made for each other.
I coaxed my better half to take these snaps when we were headed out for drinks in the evening sun. The days are finally longer and the evenings are filled with light and warmth. The start of the best time of year for sure!
