A Simple Decision

A white shirt is an easy sartorial decision and a ubiquitous one but unlike many items of clothing these factors don’t detract from its cool-factor. Wear it buttoned-up and tucked in for a sharp tomboy look or wear it loose with rolled-up sleeves for nonchalant style.

The Perfect… Black Bikini

A perfect black bikini is an essential for a chic summer holiday. I found these very affordable ones on the high street.

L’Amour

Lately, I’ve been thinking about my old Birkenstocks, a white pair of Madrids. They got dirty quite easily as I wore them all the time, so this time around I’ve gone for black. Of course that means they go with everything which means there’s every likelihood that they won’t leave my feet. I love the black buckle detail.

If you’re looking for some too, I found them cheapest here (and you can save a few more pennies with this code ‘NEWSLET10′).

I love this modern, edgy take on women in suits, shirts and trench coats which appeared in Vogue España‘s February edition. Perfect inspiration for these transitional spring months in London.

The Simple Things

Style&Minimalism | New Additions | COS - 3 Cotton T-ShirtsMy friend in the know, Danni, told me a while ago that COS make really good t-shirts but not having been in the market for new t-shirts until recently I saved this little snippet for a later date. She was so right, boy, do they make good t-shirts. The cotton jersey is a medium weight which hangs beautifully and isn’t too see-through and the cut is flattering. I may have gone a little overboard buying three in one go but when you’re on to a good thing, why not?

 

Alexander Wang x H&M

Style&Minimalism | Alexander Wang x H&M collaborationAlexander Wang is one of the most important voices in fashion today. He understands exactly what people want to wear and does it with an energy and passion that’s infectious. It feels incredible to be collaborating with him this year.
Margareta van den Bosch, H&M Creative Advisor

It would seem Alexander Wang is collaborating with H&M, what fantastic news, huh? I loved their last collaboration with Isabel Marant and I really can’t wait for this one; Wang, as I’ve said many times before, is a legend. The collection is due to go on sale 6th November.

Shopping List

Going for a leg lengthening outfit in today’s Shopping List; a long leather pencil skirt and nude heels should do the trick.

I’ve mentioned Molami’s Bight earphones before so you may well have read about how well designed they are and the incredible materials they use to make them. I can now proudly say I’m the owner of a gorgeous white leather and gold pair! I’m a details kinda girl and Molami are all about the detail, from the interchangeable ear pads of varying sizes to the gold microphone and controller; everything is very well considered.

Exciting news, Samsøe & Samsøe‘s UK site is up and running! I’m so pleased I can now shop the full collection of this amazing label, there are lots of stockists out there but they just never have the pieces I really want.

These are my favourite looks from their present, spring summer collection. God, they do such great jackets and coats, really loving the loose fit double breasted navy blazer below.
