THE WHOLE PACKAGE

Sarah Mikaela Lavish Alice

Lately* I've been getting myself more and more into package deals. Everything from adding the extra luggage and anything-that-can-go-wrong insurance to having starters with mains with dessert. "All at once, yes". I call it the 'Happy Meal Effect', revealing the fact that once we ran out of rye bread and bean paté on the backseat of all those high-way journeys from Denmark to X-Y-Z European country, the drive thru was my dawg. *We were it's dawg.. doesn't matter..

*Meaning the past year, as we all know 2017 has been a complete sneeze.

Lavish Alice has become my classy package deal, thereby meaning that I know as soon as I've landed on the site, I'll find something where I won't need to worry about a million ways I need to style it or incorporate it with my current wardrobe. The outfits and dresses all pull together for effortless looks, like this white, tight, flare sleeved goodie of a dress worn in this post. It has the right dosage of loud and simple, Scandinavian but enough Samba to keep the party fun. I've been getting dresses to wear for weddings (although I'm keeping my hands off the white for those), and if you take a look through the li'l widget I've put together below, you'll spot a wide legged pink jumpsuit which is another recent addition to my wardrobe, to be worn soon.

SHADE OF THE WEATHER



F rom one Scandinavian port to the next, dressed in the shade of the weather. To tell the truth, grey isn't one of my favourite colours to wear, as much as everyone keeps talking about how many shades it has, they all seem a bit like they haven't quite decided what they're up to. Much like me now at 24 on a Friday night. But when it comes pinstriped on a suit, paired with a bit of wide heeled silver Isabel Marant action worn in perky Stockholm, don't mind me if I do. This August meant a hop, skip and a jump to two of my favourite Scandinavian cities, first Stockholm and then Copenhagen. Generously invited to the first mentioned and pictured by one of my favourite hair care brands Maria Nila, I had 24 hours to enjoy a piece of the Stockholm summer, staying at gorgeous Hotel Diplomat right by the harbour. Much recommended for the afternoon sunlight we arrived to, and it's voluminous umbrellas we needed the following day.

COPENHAGEN FLARES



































I find myself in CPH around this time of year due to the fashion week, but to be completely honest with you, it's a welcomed excuse to be back in this city. My home for 5 years until settling down in London, many of you already know, but it's managed to completely renovate its infrastructure in the 4 years I've been gone. Note: I've been kicked out of the bus twice(!), with no-where to touch up my rejsekort - this is the Danish capital's travel card, equivalent to London's Oyster Card, Melbourne's Myki etc. etc. - I've found my daily average step count going to a number, shouldn't be legal. If you don't have a bike here, you might as well prepare yourself. You shall be confused and you shall walk. A lot. That said, this place remains beautiful, pleasing both when it comes to its food, architecture, interior, aesthetics and the fact that evrrrybody looks like they're signed to a model agency.

MATTE IN MARGATE


A DAY IN DREAMLAND

By reading this post, you are witnessing two things. 1. My binge-watching GLOW has had sartorial consequences. 2. A matte lip remains my favourite lip look, regardless of point 1's excessive desire for glitter, curls and shoulder pads. The pout must stay matte, and whilst lip colours don't normally survive the many challenges of a theme park, I put the Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour to the test - a touch, kiss and waterproof genie that's arrived in 15 shades (my shade worn throughout: Rose & Shine). The story starts before taking off from Kings Cross in London and continues all the way to the British seaside gem Margate, spending a day throwing curveballs at it in Dreamland. We're talking carrousels, candy floss and even the lightest bit of rain, to test this one out. Dreamland being a spot that just about holds enough sugar coated, stomach gutting excitement to have you jumping through the day like a gazelle, and whilst I gave it lots of chances to get off my face - guys - this one stays!

FLORAL URBANITE


I t doesn't take a genius to connect florals with summer wear. That said it's difficult to take away a floral dress' throne of being the ultimate summer outfit. Us urbanites have to claim our piece of nature, even if it's just a reminder to us, that it exists. Whilst I decided to wear this ASOS outfit mid-week in the most Central of London, gushing over my wonderful friend Camila's upcoming wedding as a welcomed sidetrack to a busy week, my favourite florals can be found at Columbia Road Flower Market. A place that often gets my heart beating on the weekends, but for the days in between, don't mind me if I spray them over my week in the shape of a red floral jersey dress.







HOPE YOU'RE HAVING A GREAT WEEK
