Tomorow is the big take-off to South of France and today I found myself packing, washing and getting ready for my week holiday. One of the task today is to get my toes into vacay-mood by adding a bit of color. Inspired by this Céline ad I kind of want to go towards orange tones, right now I’m leaning towards the far right one a mix between orange and red. Keep checking in here to see which one I choose. And yes, O.P.I is by far one of the best nail polish brands, just so you know.
See you in Côte d’azur!
I have a problem, a problem that I honestly can’t really call a problem. A very shallow problem, but never the less a problem (don’t we all just need some small non-important problems in our life, to understand the real problems?). So here it is; I have a pair of gorgeous slingbacks by Calvin Klein that I won on Ebay a while ago, but no occasion to wear them. It needs to be for a dinner or a night out (not the local pub) because even if you wear them with jeans you are still a bit dressed up.
I got them a couple a months ago and only wore them once, what a shame. I really need to get them slingbacks back on!

Pink and velvet, a wining match.So after a couple of rather stressful weeks I yesterday finally had a day with no must (almost), I decided to take a walk to Westfield a big shopping mall five minutes walk from my house. I normally don’t go there unless I special things to buy, but yesterday I just felt like strolling around there to check out the stores.
And it turned out to be a good a idea after all, found this pink velvet trousers at Pull & Bear, perfect for my plane ride next Monday to South of Fance. Love a good airplane outfit, comfy and pretty!

In less then ten days I’m once again heading over to South of France for the second time this year (lucky me) for a week long much needed holiday. This time you will find me on the beach with a book in my hand, all week long, this is a promise. I will make one detour to the local market, where they stock everything from food to clothes and things you didn’t even know you needed in your life. This time I’m on a mission to find the three objects shown my mood-board above. A straw hat, a straw bag and a pair of new sandals, preferably the K Jaques ones from Saint Tropez. Love them. I need to get my Jane Birkin style going.
Soon, counting down.

This Sunday I literally had ten minutes to get dressed for an unplanned dinner in central London, it’s moments like this when you are happy that you have started to build up that basic wardrobe. With a good basic wardrobe I truly believe you always have something to wear for any occasion. The black dress is as we all know always a winning card, black boots (I know, I know, I should stop wearing those boots. But hey, they are new and I really love them!), a black denim jacket, my navy handbag and a pair of sunnies. Made me thinking that it’s really not always a bad idea to not overthink your outfit. Simply go with the flow, like I did this time.

I am very much a t-shirt jeans kinda girl, it may sound easier than it is because let me tell you; to find the perfect tee and denim is a mission in itself. It has to be PERFECT in order for me to buy it.
One thing that I am constantly searching for is the prefect long sleeve tee, you know those days when it’s to warm for a knit and to cold for a short sleeve tee. When I say long-sleeve I really mean long. I want the sleeve to almost bee ridiculously long for me to either fold them up or creese them.
Well the search is over, they have been found. Let me introduce you the brand The Classy Issue, where my new long-sleeve tee comes from. Definitely my new favorite for a Londoner as myself where the weather is very unpredictable. It’s the perfect not to warm not to cold tee, and it looks pretty good and clean as well with the simle logo on the front, just the way I like it. Thumbs up for this one!
Check out the The Classy Shop where they also stock a few other brands!

I remember when I lived in Paris one of my Swedish friends Joanna who always wore black (always!) bought a knit in burgundy. I remember it so well because I had the same knit but in navy and I thought to myself; Why didn’t I get it in burgundy? Joanna is blonde just like me and it looked so good on her with her skin tone and hair. So inspired by her I now have my own burgundy knit, it is defiantly one of my new favorite colors!

Im slightly obsessed with dusty pink for the moment especially when it comes to fashion, wouldn’t mind any of the pieces above. If I do dress in pink I make sure to pair the rest of the outfit with pieces less “cute” such as sneakers, black colors or leather.

I did it, the dream lace-up boots with kitten heels are mine! Who ever follow me on Instagram may have seen THIS post the other day of me trying on the shoes in And Other Stories. So they day after I couldn’t stop thinking about them (story of my life) so I went to try them again, and I knew that they had to be mine. What can I say, you know when you know! I love to wear them with ripped jeans as seen above, or with a leather skirt that I did on a night out yesterday.
Happy Sunday folks!
