The oversized shirt

 

With summer in full force I shouldnt be thinking about autumn just yet, but I am!

I’ve been starting to collect some new pieces for my wardrobe that will help me transition into the cooler season. My top choice for the next coming months is the oversized shirt! I first saw this utilitarian shirt by Ghospell when I went to visit their sister brand Sister Jane off the lovely Portobello Road for their new season showcase! I instantly fell in love with this shirt and had to take it home with me.

 

 

 

 

The oversized shirt works in so many ways. Wear it with everything, even over a maxi dress or tucked into a pair of mom jeans. You can even wear it open with a silk tunic underneath or tied in the front. Now can you see why this is such a great transition piece?!

I chose to wear my new Ghospell shirt with my favorite vintage Levis 501 shorts (which were actually jeans, until I  took the scissors to them) and my much loved Beret.

If you follow me on Instagram then you would have seen my new baby. Have you guessed yet?? Its my new/old vintage Chanel bag. I found it in a designer consignment store, and was over-the-moon! The condition is pretty worn on the inside but that didnt stop myself from making the leap and buying this baby! It will be hard for me to not want to wear it with every outfit. I also found a pink vintage Dior bag and a Chanel Scarf.  Let me know if you would like me to do a post on my vintage designer finds?

Lilac Jumper

Its January and its COLD, but that doesn’t stop me from wearing dainty pastel tones to match the charming houses in Notting Hill!

A few weeks ago I was contacted by John Smedley for their S/S18’ collection. While scrolling though the new collection I was so inspired by this jumper. The oversized fit, bell sleeves, bow details, and lilac color sold me!

What do you think about this color for Spring/ Summer?

Nicce

 

There’s nothing nicer than taking a stroll around my neighbourhood on the weekend, especially since it’s Notting Hill, AND Christmas is in the air! Simple local walks are anything but ordinary, you know. There’s something so special in celebrating the familiar!

In keeping with that spirit, I’m wearing the softest, palest pink hoodie from Nicce London. Who wouldn’t love this one? It will become a constant. I will wear it as much as I can on the weekends! Worn with the obligatory Converse,skinny jeans and my go to blazer (I tend to grab without blinking),and Voila, I’m ready for Ledbury Rd, Westbourne Grove, and places beyond!!

The Black Jumpsuit

Ok, so who doesnt dream about wearing their Pj’s out all day!? I swear this jumpsuit from Pretty Lavish is the perfect and chicest way to get away with feeling just that comfortable. I didnt even realise my wardrobe was missing such a simple item. I always seem to bypass the basics and opt for the more “Exciting” pieces then to realise that the basic’s actually ARE the more exciting pieces!!

I adore this super low detailed back, and wide leg. The wide leg gives it such a vintage feel and looks fab worn with heels for a dressier look.

I paried the jumpsuit with last seasons Mango lace-up heels, my favorite go to baker boy hat, and my Meli Melo bucket bag!
