SOUTH WEST FOUR



SUPERDRY LEATHER JACKET / SUPERDRY DRESS / VINTAGE SCARF / LONGCHAMP BACKPACK / SENSO SHOES / NORDENSTAM RING / WEAREARROW RING / RAY BAN SUNNIES

Whilst the London clouds may have turned grey(er), and the calendar officially now says "Autumn", it is not quite time to hibernate from the great outdoors just yet. It's still festival season, yay! Fuelled on Mr. Whippy's and a backpack full of sparkle icing doughnuts, I went to the SW4 festival together with loveliest Fenn, hosted in the beautiful Clapham Common. Being a 90's kid who was then well equipt with a super cool discman, Basement Jaxx was of course on the list, but more than anything, I love festivals for the vibe and the opportunity to dance under an open sky. I was so happy that Superdry offered me this experience, and I was more than a happy festival guest dressed in what in my closet shall be known as my favourite leather jacket (this sartorial fascination has been going on for some years, so this is quite a title!) which I paired with matching ankle boots and a maxi dress tied up with a tie-dye vintage skirt.

WITH LOVE FROM ITALY


PALOMA BATHING SUIT / GANNI SHORTS

Reporting from Italy, where I am currently experiencing every level of what (out of current vocabulary skills) I can only call paradise*. Let it be known, that as a moderately to very happy inhabitant of the digital age, that it has been a looong time, since I turned my phone off - not counting the unintentional ones where iOS forced me to restart the whole thing for a "software update" or those times the battery would simply say: "pffff..." and go to black. This time, there are no tears nor any eye twitching involved, but simply the realisation of needing to completely unplug from time to time. Am I writing this to you from a perfectly electronically lit, totally connected to the down stairs laundromat's free wi-fi laptop, whilst drop boxing above images to my phone? Maybe. But totally besides the point I'm trying to make! Either way, logging off, switching off, unplugging for even a day can make you feel like paradise.

THANKS FOR YOUR AWESOME PATIENCE FOR POSTS! I'M SOON BACK IN THE OFFICE, AND I CAN'T WAIT TO SHARE MY LATEST PROJECTS WITH YOU!

LOTS OF LOVE

*I googled it.. They call it: "Italy". More specifically, I'm currently spending some days in Italy, jumping between Venice, Padua, Lago di Tenno and currently in Verona. Such a blessing!

A LOOK INTO


.. a crazy, yet unbelievably exciting month ahead. 
With September only being days away, I can't believe I'll be going to New York in connection with the fashion week!! This trip (my first to NY and first to the US) has rekindled all those butterflies that normally only come out the day before my birthday. Although a whole day of cake, kisses and pressies is probably the best thing I can think of, I'd say my excitement barometer is fiery red hot right now!

Not only am I crossing the Atlantic, but I'm doing it with someone purely awesome, my lovely friend Noor. I couldn't wish for a better guide to run around in New York with, and I have set aside a good slither of our trip to go doughnut hunting. All New York doughnuts beware! If you want to follow the hunt when it goes live next month, remember to follow the shenanigans on SnapChat (username: SrhMikaela).

THE IMPORTANCE OF A GOOD RED LIPSTICK



Bordering the time when Summer turns to Autumn, richer and more burnt nuances take the lead. Although a fantastic shade for summer, I personally feel more comfortable wearing a rich red on my lips. With summer heat, I just get it everywhere - on second thought though, I just generally get it everywhere (mainly because I can't keep my paws off snacks)..


But asides from leaving a trail of where you've been in the kitchen, red is a colour that sparks and communicates confidence, and for these reasons alone, I will always keep coming back to this look. If you've been following the site for a fair while, you might know that MAC's "Ruby Woo" is one of my absolute favourites, being matte and just simply gorgeous on (moisture lips are crucial for this one though, or you'll find yourself in cake town). For this Autumn though, I've been falling (pun, ha!) in love with more glossy, creamy looks. So for this! I bring you Zoeva's Cooling Passion which I'm wearing in all shots. In the second photo, I added a base of Topshop's Infrared, which is more orange, giving a more burnt orange red, but I reckon brown bases would look amazing as well.

HOPE YOU'RE ENJOYING THE WEEKEND

AN HOUR IN HOLBORN


LEVI'S SHIRT / PAIGE DENIM JEANS / MADS N├śRGAARD BANDANA USED AS SCARF / THE BRIDGE BAG / CARAVELLE WATCH / GAS BIJOUX BRACELET / NORDENSTAM RING / WEAREARROW RING / ULLU PHONE COVER

From the afternoon rush hour in London, I want to share something that takes me out of everyday comfort zone of this city. It has something to do with unexplored territory, a really good friend and (oh let's just add a drumroll for this one) fashion. Given that I have somehow gotten to a point in life, where I laugh at my own jokes as I type, I gathered that this step needed to come sooner than later. Okay guys! This September, I'll be power ranging my way to New York!!!

I'll be going with my favourite Dutchie, Noor, who is just an absolute star on her blog and in real life. This one has been nominated for no less than the Bloglovin' awards in the "Best Lifestyle Blog" category. This is just so awesome, and so well deserved. Now, my all-time favourite blogging candy-jar soulmate Shini made it for "Best Photography Blog", and this also is so more than well deserved! Help these wonderful people out and check out the rest of the lovely nominees right here.

BTW, TOTALLY AWARE THAT THIS IS THE SECOND POST IN A ROW HOLDING A COFFEE... IT'S NOT THE SAME ONE.. PROMISE..
