Nostalgia

Back in the day, this live wire place called Soho used to be my stomping ground. Since then I’ve moved to Stockholm, Los Angeles, the British countryside, Nice and Antibes in France.. phew! Now I’m back in London  with a new outlook on life, new stomping grounds and with a little boy at my side. Soho belongs to my past!! Walking around the narrow  maze like streets, this London village hasn’t changed much really. I instantly recognise the creative bohemian atmosphere that at one time shared the streets with businesses  less savoury. Most of the cafes, and shops I used to go to have now gone, but nonetheless Soho is filled with lingering memories of my teenage years.

Yesterday I was invited to  A London Fashion Week event, and walked through Soho on the way reliving memories. The invitation was a 21 Buttons x TBP Hangout in Covent Garden. Let’s just say it was a room full of cocktails, snacks, goodie bags, and Bloggers! I met many industry people and made new friends. A fun afternoon.

I  decided last minute to wear this  vintage pink turtleneck top I  picked up at Traid , Notting Hill on sale for a ridiculous £2. I just love the pop of  pink color. So on trend.

Sometimes the past brings with it good things. Memories, warm thoughts, a reflection as to who you are now in relation to the past, and oh … a vintage pink turtleneck!

Denim mini skirt for Autumn

Its August, and I’m sure we’ve only had 2 weeks of summer?! So with Autumn around the corner along with these chilly mornings and evenings, I feel this is the best way to transition your Summer outfit into fall. I got this amazing jacket from Joes Jeans, which is an American company. They recently teamed up with Taylor Hill for an awesome collab (here). This jacket was one of the items I adored from the collaboration, and couldnt wait for it to arrive in the post!

I teamed this jacket ‘must have’ with my “Mon Cheri” slogan sweatshirt from Joanie. I have a feeling you’re going to be seeing a lot of this sweatshirt on me, with no apologies!! It’s the softest coziest sweatshirt EVER, and the cute slogan makes it possible to pair with most things. I’m even wearing it as I type this post (and extremly tempted to sleep in it ) but I wont, well….maybe?

To complete the look grab your favorite beret, boots, red lipstick and Voila ! We are as they say ‘transitioning’! Bring on Autumn, or an Indian Summer and I’m totally okay with going back to Summer dresses. What about you?!

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!

Summer in floral

It’s July and summer is well underway! I was pleasantly surprised by how many actual hot days we have had in London so far! It’s a huge change from when I spent these months in the South of France! Summertime in Antibes are wonderful for a holiday, but when you stay the whole 4 months you better have A.C and a lot of bug spay, as you basically spend most your days melting and killing mosquitoes!

This time of year in London have always been a gamble. I’m not ready for autumn yet, especially since Nobody’s Child just sent me this gorgeous floral wrap DRESS! I have a feeling I’m going to be wearing this dress every chance I get!!

Today I paired it with my Zara Pom Pom basket bag, black ballet flats and gold jewelry which are vintage from the 90’s, absolute gems!!

I hope you love this dress as much as I do, I’ve posted links below for you to shop 💘
