FF GOING TO NYC



OUTFIT

You know those butterflies that come crawling just before you're about to travel? Well, I've come down with a big dose of those in getting myself and my ultimate partner in crime, big bro Jakob, ready for New York! It's been such fun planning the trip, and I've already signed myself up for yellow cabs and a diet solely consisting of doughnuts and stuffing my bags with M&M's (those who truly know me, know that I'm not joking).

Make sure to join me on the trip, as I jump around coffee shops like these, run to fashion presentations and catch up with friends whilst I'm there on Instagram, Twitter and SnapChat (username throughout: @srhmikaela).

HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT START TO YOUR WEEK!

BERET IN MIND



OH, THIS OLD THING?

Let's talk berets you guys. As when you can't go to France, you might as well let it come to you, and what better way to feel the aura of France than in the shape of a beret. Now there is no wrong doing in going all in combining it with a classic breton, but for the sake of exploration, here are three other ways you could style the ever so identifiable disc on your head. I've been looking for the perfect one all winter, and although combing through the high street, mine was found in a lovely vintage shop in Angel, London, who had unused stock. If you can tolerate pure wool, I highly suggest you take a trip to Camden Passage, do as I and get one as cheap as toast!

Moving on from the exciting chat about classic French headwear, I'd love to share a quick note on validation. In the time this blog has been running (since 2009, whaaat!?) my relationship to fashion has changed so much. Fashion has for me always come from a place of having fun, but I remember thinking that the outfit made me and not the other way around, especially when I was a lot younger. Now I understand, that the clothes I wear is there as an expression of the person I am, and valid because of it. Validation comes from within and begins with self-kindness. Never feel like you need to change what you like, choose to celebrate it regardless of how many likes it gets, and whoever wants to share that joy with you is a bonus.

YOU ARE AWESOME, EVEN IF YOU SHOULD QUESTION IT.

REHEARSAL OVER

Framboise Fashion High Holborn

UP TO DATE

Oh wow, did this month just pass by like a racoon on a scooter? It feels like forever since I was stuffing myself with Christmas leftovers yet no time since my moves were unleashed in Soho for New Year's Eve. Getting back into my routines, there's this Danish radio program I listen to in the mornings, where people text in with what their day ahead would be like, was it a cake. I'm a target for this type of marketing for obvious reasons (My kind of logic exactly), and so it had me thinking, if my January was a cake, we'd be looking at something like 28% tax return research, 62% digging through and sorting out receipts for tax return and 10% cross cravings - we're talking broccoli and chocolate mousse. Sleep is a much missed friend, but I've marked off March for hibernation. This will mean planned, out of context posts, snoring SnapChats*, Netflix and a whole bunch of delivery food. 


Everybody excited? Me too!

SO HERE'S TO US!

We survived January. That beautiful, confusing and above all unpredictable month that somehow never plays out the way I thought it would. In these days, it's especially where we're faced with whether our resolutions really hold water. Did you make any resolutions, and if so how has it gone so far? Also, do share which ingredients make up your January, was it a cake!

GOLD COATED



THE SPRING ROLL METHOD

You know that person in the gym, that person who is running turbo-speed, uphill, and oh yeah, they sweat glitter dust. And you (and by you I mean I) am on the next treadmill basically just rolling around like a passive overcooked spring roll. I hope this doesn't apply for you guys, but this week has been that person, running way faster than myself tailwind and all, trying to keep up, spring roll style. For this reason, I like to incorporate anything in my work that will remind me of the weekend. Things that ground me in busy January weeks (you know how I've been raving about yoga), but the little things do wonders to a busy mind.
