BLANK GAPS




GAP PEPLUM TOP / GAP PANTS / HUNTER BAG / DANIEL WELLINGTON WATCH / PRADA SUNGLASSES

It's a poorly kept secret, that I jump into my yoga-pants at any possible occasion. I could try and think up many reasons as to why, but it all comes down to the fact, that they're ridiculously comfortable. Although I don't possess the ability to put my legs behind my head, the intention is there. So whilst I desperately try to reach my toes, the perks of the infinite stretch are beneficial even to a couch potato like me.

This is my second look out of three in collaboration with GAP's global influencer platform Styld.by (see the first here), and I loved how my beloved yoga-pants became a legitimate out-of-class outfit with this super cool peplum t-shirt. Namaste? Namaste!

HAPPY FRIDAY!

CLOCKING IN, SUNSHINE



VINTAGE SHIRT / PEPE JEANS JEANS / ZARA MULES / EVERLANE TOTE / CELINE SUNGLASSES / MONICA VINADER BRACELET / WEAREARROW RING

Recent improvement in the London weather forecast has lead to a fair bit of squinting that has lead to an urgent need for a pair of fully functioning sunglasses. And now, when it comes to the classic black shades, who does it better than Céline? Paired with an outfit almost completely sourced by eager thrift shop hunting, the total sum of this outfit only comes to the price of the shades.

London being such a vibrant city, it's impossible not to fall in love with the continuous stream of red buses (mind you, I don't feel much love for them when I'm riding behind them.. just.. can't.. breathe..) and somehow it's a colour that seems to repeat itself throughout the city. Clerkenwell at least! Oh, and Old Street of course, not to mention creative hotspot Shoreditch. Come to London, and if you're a chameleon, don't bother packing other colours in your suitcase than red. You'll blend in just fine.

HAVE A LOVELY DAY

SERENDIPITOUS BACKWAYS



GAP TRENCH COAT / SAMSØE SAMSØE SKIRT / MAXMARA TOTE / R.M. WILLIAMS BOOTS

If there's one thing I love about living in London, it's the fact that by the time you think you've seen everything, you blink, and everything has changed. And then again, the characteristic yellow and red bricks remain, but the ivy might have come a bit further down or a beautiful vintage car in mint condition has parked on a spot that you otherwise found dodgy (pun intended). Now, you know I'd be the first one to jump at a vintage vehicle if they came as electrical cars and with the steering on the left side, but until then, my wheels will be the ones on my bike.

Either way, a girl can dream, and my dreaming led me to jump into this short trench coat. A trench coat is unarguably a classic, yet I've never jumped into one with this length, and now it simply won't come off! A versatile fella it is.. Next up, culottes and stilettos, you're on in 5, cause it's FRIDAY!

HAVE A WONDERFUL START TO YOUR WEEKEND

FOLLI FOLLIE SS15 CAMPAIGN



FLOWERBALL BAG / DAZZLING BRACELET / DONATTELA WATCH / HEART4HEART BRACELET / LOVE & FORTUNE RING

An exciting opportunity came up a little while ago, when Folli Follie virtually knocked on my door to hear, whether I wanted to be a part of the SS15 campaign shot by - hold your breath - no less than Candice Lake. Knowing the talent behind the creative team and working with such an inspiring photographer, it was a no brainer. Hear about the day and see the rest of the photos after the jump!

WEEKEND ADDICTIONS



VINTAGE BLAZER / WALLIS TOP / WALLIS JEANS / VINTAGE SHOES / CARAVELLE WATCH / HUNTER BAG / VINTAGE SCARF

Spring is an addiction. Having been bordering autumn in Australia for the past few months, Spring has definitely been missed, although I can't say that there's much difference in temperatures. Either way, it's perfect weather for wearing a slip top and flares, paired with newly acquired freckles that appeared on my face after these photos. How I love sitting by the canal, with raspberry meringue, cake and an iced coffee, and that hint of the 70's on my jeans is perhaps as addictive as Spring-time, and there's no doubt, that these will come out to many sunny market days this summer.

HOPE YOU'VE HAD A LOVELY WEEKEND
