A LONDON FASHION WEEK REFLECTION

It is already a week since fashion week ended here in London. Everything is so fast paced at the moment that I barely can keep up with it (in a good way though). I was lucky enough to get tickets to the Theo Vii Studio show. The collection was brilliant. Everything that I love from the loose fitted silhouettes to the soft blue tones and the creamy whites. I definitely believe it is a brand to keep an eye on.

When it comes to dressing for fashion week I always believe that what I wear should reflect who I am and how my style is. So I decided to combine all of my favorite elements. The mix of the colors and the different types of stripes really made me fall in love with the outfit. And of course I paired it with sneakers. These are actually quite new and I love them unbelievable much. The perfect pair for all the long walks we are doing whilst we stay in London.

WEARING DOTS IN SOUTH WEST LONDON

 Yes another outfit that includes a black and white dotted top. I just want everything dotted at the moment. I have always loved dots (small dots, polka dots, all kinds of dots) but I haven’t really been wearing any up until now. The dots have made a great comeback at least on me (though a have seen them quite a bit on Instagram recently). This top I have been wearing without a bra (yes I have started to learn to embrace my rather small breasts and enjoyed that I can actually go braless without it being uncomfortable) and the material is so soft and nice.

Another great new discovery of mine is these jeans from BDG (Urban Outfitter’s jeans label). They are so comfortable it would be wrong of me not to mention them (and the price isn’t bad either). With their slight kick in the end they have a really flattering fit on the legs.

Today I have been ‘living’ in London for three weeks and honestly the time flies by so fast I almost can’t keep up with it. Only one week left to school starts. I am nervous, but mostly just excited. These pictures were shot this Sunday where we went to the farmer’s market in Parson’s Green and just chilled out with some good food (aka bread & humus) and a good book in the park (right now I am reading ‘Inside Vogue’ by Alexandra Shulman and I am really enjoying it).

The weather was nice and sunny and perfect for some light weight clothing. These silk trousers from Ganni have definitely been one of my best purchases this summer as they are perfect for those “in-between-days” where it isn’t cold but isn’t exactly boiling either. Paired with my beloved Adidas Stan Smith it was a match made in heaven as we were walking quite a bit.

HOT DAYS IN PARIS

As you probably have seen on Instagram (or red in my latest post) I took a girls trip to Paris last week. We had a wonderful time eating good food, taking long walks through the parks, seeing the sun set over the Seine, looking at art galleries in the Marais district and hitting all the beautiful French fashion stores (yes – I did definitely not go out empty handed). I’m planning on doing a full guide for Paris so stay tuned for that one!

Dress Sessùn

I bought this dress on sale in the small Sessùn store in the 6th Arrondissement. I haven’t actually heard much about the brand, but – oh boy – it surprised me. It has a bohemian vibe to it and lots of the clothes made me think about a urban country girl. The details and the quality is beautiful – which were the exact reason why I fell in love with this dress. Yes it’s ‘just’ black but the belt around the waist makes all the difference. It’s light and flowy (and you can wear it without a bra) and therefore perfect for some hot days in the city.

Another buy I’ve made in Paris was this blue striped skirt from Maje. Again a new brand to me (not all French brands is that easy to get hold of in Denmark). It ticks all the right boxes. Blue, striped and ruffled. What more is there to say?

Dress Ganni

Floral prints have not always been something I fancied but this summer it’s different. In general I think my style has evolved in a more feminine direction which I only see as a positive thing. Why shouldn’t I? Change can be good sometimes.

JUNE WISH LIST

Sweater Ganni// Trousers By Malene Birger// Espadrilles Vince// Bag Ganni

Orange is definitely the color of the season (just like yellow was last summer). It is the perfect subtle orange. Not to bright or neon. Ganni has just released their pre-fall collection and oh my it is beautiful and it contains a lot of orange pieces. I imagine wearing the sweater on a chilly summer night while watching the sun go down in the horizon. I wouldn’t mind bringing it with me this summer holiday where I will spend a lot of my time in the family summerhouse by the sea.
As you might have seen as well the espadrilles have got a serious comeback this season. They are everywhere at the moment (a long side its fellow buddy the ever-so-chic straw bag). I really need to get myself a pair as soon as possible (or should I say as soon as my bank account allows me, yep I have definitely had a ‘feeling spendy’ moment lately, ups).

RED ALERT

 

Pictures from Tumblr

Once upon a time my favorite color was red. I have always loved the color, but the latest years I haven’t worn the color much (read: not at all). Why so? See that I can’t explain. Maybe because the color can be a bit daring to wear. It is a very strong color and it can sometime scream a little too much for attention. But for me it also expresses some sort of power. You definitely feel like a power woman when you wear red. Luckily red is back in the game. Big time. And no one said that you have to wear it head-to-toe. A small splash of the red color can be just enough.

This t-shirt from Ganni is everything I didn’t knew I wanted in a t-shirt. I think it is fun and playful and it is a great summer stable. I love how a little bit of color quickly can make your outfit more interesting. I think I owe you an apology for the silence on the blog lately (and in a long time), but at the moment I’m concentrating on my exams. Fortunately I graduate on tuesday!
