I had never considered the weather so often until I moved to London. Let’s call it a deeper appreciation for sunshine – which is exactly what is happening this week. These yellow tulips capture the mood perfectly; sun, cloudless skies, and plenty of it.
Shop the look: H&M hat, T by Alexander Wang t-shirt, Josh Goot vest (alternative here and here), 7 for All Mankind Skinny Destroyed jeans and Zara pumps (similar here)
Summer is all about long days at the beach, balmy evenings spent with friends, new adventures, and of course amazing festivals. One of the perks of living in London is being able to travel to so many beautiful European cities, and festival season is pretty much the perfect excuse for just that. So over the next couple months I will be heading to Barcelona, Berlin and Bruxelles (unintentional theme there) with 7 for All Mankind; it’s going to be good times! I will be Insta-documenting along the way, but until then, I’ll be sporting this psudeo-festival attire. Just replace the heels with boots and you’re good to go.
Shop the look: white sunglasses, quilted leather jacket, sheer panel white dress, textured white clutch and perspex heel booties (similar here, here and here)
Nasiba takes monochrome to the next level with matching white round frames and and sculptural perspex booties. White frames aren’t exactly the easiest thing to pull off – and I’ve been hesitant because of my blonde hair – but I like how the dark lenses of this pair balance out the whiteness. I’m a big fan of super dark lenses – the more opaque the better!
Shop the look: Dress Up trench (similar here), Acne tee, Madame Hawke leather shorts (similar here and here) and Zara pumps (similar here)
Leather shorts and trench coats – two things which will always find a way into my wardrobe regardless of season or need. These were the first pair of leather shorts I ever purchased, back in Wellington four years ago, and I still can’t get enough of them.
This silk trench on the other hand, is the newest addition to my coat collection. Made by Melbourne label Dress Up, who have a true understanding of effortless style and timeless tailoring. The fabrics, the cuts, all of it is just so good! And even though Australia is pretty much on the opposite side of the world (and their seasons don’t align with London whatsoever) there are some brands which I’ll always make the effort to seek out.
