LOBSTER LEGS

I have noticed that I have worn a lot of blue and red combined lately. And why not? It’s a damn good combination and relatively fail safe. The new thing is the very bright tights that bring it all to life. It is such an easy and inexpensive way to wear more colour.

THE DEFINITION OF SMART CASUAL

According to me it would be a look like this or at least this would be the kind of outfit I would wear if want to feel super comfortable but at the same time a little put together. I have rediscovered my love for track pants and I love this navy and red (best combo really) pair that I bought a couple of years ago.

Another thing I’m really getting into is the ponytail. I used to love having my hair up in a ponytail but then I grew out of it somehow (although I cut my hair shorter). I always had a ponytail back in my early teens because my hair was so long that I could almost sit on it (okay that might be a little exaggerated but you get the idea). Now the ponytail days are back. When you can put pretty accessories in it then why not.

CANDY FOR THE HAIR

Sorry (but not sorry at all) Carrie Bradshaw but the scrunchie is back. If you are a true SATC fan like me (I have watched the whole series a hundred times already) you definitely remember how Carrie was teasing her boyfriend Jack Berger because the main character in his new book was wearing a scrunchie. “A scruuuunchiiiiiie?!!” She told him no one in New York City would ever wear a scrunchie (that poor man). He was a nice guy though, but he might have taken things a little too personal.

Anyway, as I said the scrunchie is back and I absolutely love it. It just makes a ponytail or a bun that much more interesting and fun. Besides the scrunchie I have also noticed how big of a trend these (Korean) hair clips have become so I had to have one myself. Isn’t it just to adorable? Look out for all the hair candy. It is just as addictive as sugar.

The other day when I went into Central London I decided to browse a few of the high street stores and I completely fell in love with this red shirt from Mango. It has some really nice contrast seams and the bow is what makes all the difference to me. Usually I wear my shirts tucked into the jeans but because of the oversized fit of this one I prefer it hanging loose instead.

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.
