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 💘

Roses are Pink 


Roses roses roses! I’m really digging rose print’s this summer so I was so excited to see Nobody’s Child stock this lovely vintage rose print ruffle wrap dress. 

I styled it with my new baby (the bag that is!) from Meli Melo

I’ve linked all the items below for you!

Happy Shopping,

Vintage Varsity Jacket

 

Hey! It’s  been awhile since I posted an outfit update, but there’s a good reason for it! I’ve been getting things ready & preparing to open my Depop shop Oh Lover Vintage again.  I’ve just added a few pieces to it,  so check it out!! When spring hits so do  all the flea markets here in France.

These quintessentially French Flea Markets are called Vide Greniers which means  ‘Cleaning out the attic’!! Can you imagine all of the amazing things that are hidden in the attics of French homes? You are right if your imagination goes wild! Cruising through some of the best assortment of vintage is my kind of thing, and I always come back home with my arms full. Over the weekend I decided I was going to hit a few to search for some awesome stock for my shop, and yet again I wasn’t disappointed!

My love and understanding of vintage clothing goes back to my youth. I started as a teenager working in a ton of vintage stores all over London including Camden, Notting Hill & also Stockholm, Sweden. My favorite thing to do is to rummage  through piles of old clothes to find the  perfect items! Its such a thrill!!

I will do a blog post  very soon for you to help you know what  to look for when going to flea markets or car boot sales.

This red vintage varsity jacket with the initials A.C for American Collage is one of the pieces I came across on my treasure hunt!! If you follow me on Instagram I told you there was a secret to this jacket… Well the secret is that I paid just 3Euro for it!! I know I was shocked too!

I paired the jacket with a simple black turtle neck and some ripped Levis denim shorts. Its still not hot enough to wear just the shorts so fishnets (as always) was just the thing!

Vintage Lace Cami

 

Since when did March feel like summer?! I’m so enjoying this no jacket weather, it’s so liberating to walk out without a million layers! Today I opted for just two 😉!  Here’s my sunny Saturday look. I found this vintage lace cami deep in my wardrobe and thought it was time for its grand entrance. What better then to layer it over a basic white tee! This vintage silky satin lace top pimps out my everyday basic denim look.
It adds a feminine personality , with a casual twist provided by the Converse! Lately I’ve noticed a lot of cropped tops and even bikini tops worn and tied over T’s.  I just think we’re all a little over anxious for summer dressing and this is one great way to wear the tee for a bit of coverage, and layer over them what we ‘really’ want to be wearing!!

What do you do to dress up your t-shirts ?

Wishing you a great weekend!
