Training Day

Long live the trainer I say. And thankfully it does seem that this conveniently practical trend is sticking around for yet another season. As someone who bikes and walks pretty much everywhere (at least around Paris) I’m all about those fresh white kicks on a daily basis.


Get Chiara’s look: Celine sunglasses, Chanel dress, Chanel bag and Chanel trainers

Decked out in head to toe Chanel, I’m digging the playful vibe of Chiara’s print heavy ensemble. It reflects everything summer dressing should be; fresh prints, a simple silhouette and eccentric accessories.

Jewellery and I have a very on-again, off-again kind of relationship. I’ll spend a summer scouring online boutiques and vintage stores for dainty bracelets, super fine rings and simple chain pendants to layer up, then promptly forget all about our love affair come winter.

So lo and behold, now that the weather is warming up here in Paris (don’t let my chunky knit fool you) I’ve started adding the odd touch of bling to my sartorial routine from the online jewellery box that is Cold Lilies Boutique. It’s dainty, bordering on invisible, but it’s there.

Sans Colour

Minimal, monochrome, whatever you want to call it, sometimes there’s nothing cooler than a lack of colour. A simple black mini and a slouchy white tee is the easiest summer uniform around – just keep an oversized jacket or slouchy jumper on hand for when the sun goes down.
