SIMPLICITY

Posted on: 11 Aug 2014


I'm leaning more and more towards a Scandinavian clean and minimal aesthetic - in my appearance and in my surroundings. It may be the result of too much instagram stalking but I'm craving a big bucket of white paint, parquet flooring and an abundance of indoor plants. I can't get enough of Kinfolk and Cereal magazines. I'm plotting a wardrobe overhaul that would put all my prints in hibernation until next spring. Frayed blue jeans, boater hats, oversized slouchy jumpers and simple T-shirts are all on my radar. As are In Bed 's creased cotton sheets in various shades of blue, white and grey. And don't forget Birkenstock sandals - summer's not over yet. I want to throw away all of my toiletries and invest in Aesop's entire collection. Half the items on my wishlist hail from Whistles - Acne, Commes des Garcons Commes des Garcons and a Joshu Vela canvas tote also rank high. In this picturesque world of simplicity, I'm drinking green smoothies for breakfast, cooking everything in the Hemsley and Hemlsey cookbook and waking myself up before work with an outdoor yoga class. One can dream.

SUMMER'S NOT OVER YET


I've twice before (here and here) babbled on about my love of US online vintage store Mayflower Supply

Liz has an uncanny knack of sourcing the kind of vintage garments that people are going to fight over. Loose-fitted maxis, printed shifts and little checked dresses all transcend seasonal trends to become the pieces that are constantly on rotation in your wardrobe for years to come. She also styles a damn good look-book.

This high summer showcase was inspired by Liz's love of a long hot summer - and the thought that why does summer have to end so soon? Hot and balmy days will (hopefully!) drag on languidly until mid-October - so why start packing away your summer wardrobe in August? It's still too warm to wear that new oversized knit and don't even consider slipping your tanned legs into a pair of tights!

Together with friend and model Emily Twombly and photographer Elizabeth Weinberg, Liz headed to Palm Springs to brave the sweltering heat in order to bring us her latest editorial offering.

FIELD MUSIC

Posted on: 7 Aug 2014


I'm off to Beacons festival tomorrow, the first British festival of an upcoming row of four. It's meant to be rainy, warm and muggy tomorrow and then just plain old cold and wet on Sunday. No idea what to wear!

Inspiration from Favid Gomez (roll around on the floor in a men's cotton shirt), Jean Stories (ripped jeans, a slouchy tee and wide-brimmed hat) and Just Another Fashion Blog (I'm beginning to spot a theme here).
