NEW IN MY WARDROBE | VOL. VI

Recently, I’ve spent quite a bit of time searching for this season’s best pieces and have discovered some really cool new brands in the process, so I thought I’d share my findings with you all in case you need any help with your own summer stylings!

As usual, I’ve been lusting over the Jacquemus Fall 2021 collection and decided to take the plunge and add this lime green knitted Jacquemus bandeau to my collection. It’s the perfect piece to pair with these The Frankie Shop distressed green shorts for a fun, monochrome lime look.

I also recently got ahold of this incredible pink suit from The Mannei and was practically living in it at home in Hamburg! Naturally, the blazer is the most versatile piece from the set as it can be styled with so many different looks but when worn together I just think that this suit has such an effortlessly chic vibe to it thanks to its high quality and oversized cut. I think it could also be cool to style it with taupe platform Balenciaga slides for a real 90’s style outfit.

FRIDAY FAVOURITES XVI

FRIDAY FAVOURITES XVI

Happy Friday loves! I hope you have all had a wonderful week and looking forward to some fun plans over the next couple of days.

Before the weekend kicks in, I thought I’d share this week’s Friday faves with you – a brief roundup of some of my favourite pieces from the past week. As I’m currently in Italy and officially starting my vacation today, I’ll start by mentioning black raffia Prada tote bag which is definitely one of this summer’s must-haves!

A relaxed summer vacay look for me always starts with a few core pieces. These bleached frayed denim shorts by Frame are a great place to start and I’d pair them with a cool white tee like this one by Isabel Marant – I love the padded shoulder pads which provide a more stylish and defined silhouette.

Of course, hats on holiday are an absolute must. Not only will they protect you from the sun but they are also a great way to add a little fun to any outfit, especially those with great prints like thisMarine Serre moon print bucket hat which would pair nicely with my black beach bag and some cool sunnies. To add a zesty punch, I’d finish things off by teaming this casual outfit with a beautiful lemon hued swimsuit by Laura Urbinati, Givenchy sandals and Lemaire croissant bag.

WEEKLY WISHLIST #28

WEEKLY WISHLIST #28

This week’s wishlist is full of bright, fun colours, perfect for any upcoming summer activities you may have planned!

If you’re looking for effortless, casual daywear you can’t go wrong with a good pair of shorts like this emerald green pair by Ganni which caught my eye. I love the unique, scalloped-edge of the shorts and that Ganni also has a matching coloured shirt, so you could style these pieces as a cute set or even layered over a pink Jacquemus bralette to mix up the palette a bit.

I was so excited to add Balanciaga’s ‘Cagole’ bag to my collection this week, in the most gorgeous lilac shade. As you may know from previous blog posts, I’m a huge fan of the brand and its amazing assortment of colourful accessories, but if you’re not quite as into colour as I am the white Cagole is also really fresh and would be super versatile for summer stylings.

This season the ‘Terry’ fabric has been a hot trend, with the likes of Bottega Veneta incorporating it into their pouches and slides. Zimmerman has also integrated the fabric into a few of their new pieces and I particularly love this green bandeau bikini – the fabric texture just adds a little extra something to a poolside look, especially when paired with these white Vince sandals and neon pink Versace sunnies.

ITALY SERIES | PACKING ESSENTIALS

ITALY SERIES | PACKING ESSENTIALS

Ciao from Ravello! Alex & I are staying here with Revolve this week for a few fun-filled days. I’m sure most of you know how special Italy is to us, we have been lucky to have spent many a summer here as it’s become a bit of a tradition for us to celebrate my birthday in Positano so we will be switching off for a bit of a vacation after our work commitments in Ravello. It will be so nice to unwind after a hectic couple of months and prepare ourselves for next season which is already set to be very busy!

I thought I would put together a new packing list as you guys seemed to love the one I put together for Ibiza and Italy has a completely different, super relaxed vibe to it. I feel as though I can experiment with prints and patterns more than I usually do here, as Italy is bustling with life and great energy which I like to try to replicate within my looks. I often play around with yellow, blue and pink colour combinations as some of our favourite Italian locations have these tones woven into their scenery and stunning ceramic tiles, which makes for a great photo!

This Cecile Bahnsen dress is such a perfect buttery yellow colour and I can’t get enough of the voluminous cut that Bahnsen is so recognized for. It’s ideal for exploring the local towns teamed with comfy Gucci flip flops and statement white Versace sunnies, but it works just as well for hot summer’s evenings dressed up with strappy sandals.

I mentioned how much I love Christopher Esber previously and I recently had a little shopping spree as the brand’s new designs are particularly good, including their swim range. This lime bikini top and bottom set is modern and fresh for beach day looks – though be careful of the tan lines. 😉

When it comes to accessorising, I tend to go for fun jewellery for pool and beach days in order to protect my more precious pieces from chlorine or sand. Shell and pearl inspired jewellery like this necklace from Timeless Pearly or these Missoma earrings are great options to take your vacation style to the next level.

FRIDAY FAVOURITES XV

FRIDAY FAVOURITES XV

Happy Friday Guys! Sharing my hot picks from this week, centred around an old favourite colour combo of mine – turquoise and pink.

I recently added this gorgeous Bottega Veneta pouch bag to my collection. It’s super cool as it has an embossed abstract print and is made from a terry fabric which gives it a more casual vibe than some of Bottega’s other more classic pouches – perfect for summer holidays. If you’ve been eagle-eyed you would have seen I’ve been loving it for beach and boat day looks lately!

Colour blocking this new hot pink Bottega bag with turquoise will give off a really fresh, modern vibe especially when styled with this Dodo Bar Or turquoise leather skirt. The asymmetric drape adds a new layer of interest to the outfit (which could be styled with a crop top, tied shirt or this pink bodysuit), it’s a versatile piece that can be worn casually with strappy sandals or if you fancy getting dressed up. For more formal evening looks I’m always looking to add a fun twist and I don’t think it gets much better than these Bottega Veneta turquoise feather sandals. I have them in the lime shade and they are just so fun to wear! Perhaps I need to add the turquoise to my collection as well. 😉

I’m loving fun jewellery at the moment and if you’re looking for some quirky accessories I’d highly recommend you check out these cute enamel rings from Hot Lips by Solange. If you prefer something a little more classic then why not try some statement cat-eye sunglasses like this pair from Balenciaga. Adding a few statement accessories can really transform your look and is usually worth the investment as accessories can be worn time and time again, styled with many different outfits.

Amina Muaddi has taken the fashion industry by storm. Her eponymous label has grown from strength to strength over the past year with a variety of accessories, having most recently unveiled an exciting collaboration with Wolford, a brand renowned for its lingerie and hosiery. I spotted these crystal nude fishnet tights from their campaign imagery and I am so glad to see that there are some pairs still available. I love how delicate the tights are with the subtle crystal embellishments woven into the material, offering a touch of glamour. How fantastic would these be for party seasons?! Of course, the tights would be incredible styled with Amina Muaddi shoes but I would also really love these with Bottega’s chocolate brown strappy sandals.

I’ve kept the colour palette neutral when styling a look around these statement tights, as you wouldn’t want to go too over the top. A tan leather skirt by Zeynep Arcay and a tie-detailed top from Christopher Esber would complete the look nicely, as these pieces are both stylish and sophisticated but not overwhelming. Christopher Esber has some really gorgeous designs for the summer; I own a few pieces from the brand as they’re such wearable, versatile styles whether you’re staying in the city or off to a more relaxing summery destination.

Hereu have also released some really cool items this season like this gorgeous oyster coloured top handle bag – I love the relaxed shape and plaited handle detailing. It’s a great option if you love the look of a pouch-style bag but can’t quite sacrifice the practicality of a good strap! The cornflower blue shade is equally as beautiful.
