The return of the leggings and lunch with my favorite Italian

My beautiful and delicious coffee art with a message from April's cafe Boutique 1 in London

Last week I had the pleasure to enjoy a lunch with my Italian friend Ilaria at the fabulous restaurant April’s Cafe just next to the shop Boutique 1 (Shops and lunch places together truly are the best!). It was my day off and I couldn’t have had a better lunch date, and where else would you get a coffee with “Bela” written in the foam (Hey one L missing but it’s the thought that counts no?)

Anyhow, let’s change subject to the outfit.

I'm loving the new trend that are bringing back the leggings. Here worn with a oversized shirt from SJYP, slingbacks from And Other Stories and tote from Jigsaw.

Leggings tights or what ever you may be calling it, it is back! Now you can happily wear leggings even if you are not on your way to the gym. I must say I embraced this trend right way, can we talk about how comfy they are? Since I will be taking a four-hour flight to Turkey in ten days, these leggings will definitely be a part of my airplane outfit. Like a pajama but not.

And the best part is that it really doesn’t have to cost a lot, I gathered my favorites in the shop right now below. I would style them with a shirt like above, or a big chunky knit for colder days.

Sunny beaches tee from Ganni and a lunch in the park

Casual summer outfit post shot in London soho, wearing tee from Ganni, jeans from Acne Studios and slides from H&M.

Ok, so I’m not quite there yet, at the sunny beaches that is ( 14 days but who’s counting?) but there is no harm bringing the beaches to the city is there? At least on a t-shirt.

Danish brand Ganni always does nice, fun and affordable t-shirt with prints, it’s kinda their thing. Remember this one from a few season ago?

I’m also back in business with my lovely photographer and friend Maryam, she has been really busy lately but the other day we managed to squeeze in a lunch in the park, with juice and wrap from our favorite place in Soho. And then we shot some outfit photos of course, as you can see on the pictures above. Thank you Maryam for always making me feel good in front of the camera!

Top sales pices in store now and how to shop smart during sales

My best tip in how to shop smart during sales. Showing here adidas trainers from Asos, top from Cos and bracelet from Mango

I love sales, who doesn’t? When I think about it a few of my best wardrobe staples is actually sales findings.

So here we go, three tips from me to you in how to shop smart during sales.

1. It’s easy to get carried away in sales and to stop thinking what you actually buying but focusing on the price. Trust me I have been there as well, but it really doesn’t matter if an item is 10 pound if you don’t love it and won’t wear it you might as well spend that on something else (exhibition, a book, a cake…anything!)

2. Sales is the time when I tend to focus on the basic stuff, now is the perfect timing to invest in that black cashmere sweater and those classic denim trousers that normally would cost a fortune. Yes, it might sound boring coming home with “simple” things but that’s really what you need.

3. Third but most important, are you shopping in sales for the kick or to actually find something useful? If you are shopping for the kick, go home and go through your wardrobe and make a list of what you actually might need, then shop and STICK TO THE LIST!

Happy sales shopping and have a look at my favorites above!

High waisted denim a la 70’s and pink backdrops

Casual outfit on a Sunday walk in Notting Hill, couldn't resist taking a photo in front of a pink house. I'm wearing denim from Rodebjer, top from Cos and sunglasses from McQ.

Naturally, when you find a pink house on your Sunday walk you simply have to snap some photos in front of it, questions on that? No? I thought so.

Because of my lengths (or should I say my non-existing tallness) I never though that flared denim was a big hit on me. It was something only tall people could pull off. But when finding these pair of denim I realized that is all about finding the perfect length. As you can see they reach just above the ankle on me and it doesn’t look like I’m swimming in them. Happy me, have a feeling I’m gonna wear them a lot from now on.
