DUFFY


Wearing: Duffy Cashmere, rings from the THP SHOP, MIRLO and slides by Isabel Marant.

‘At home with Charlie May’ – Haha! Really the home is that of Shini Park; I invaded her much more photogenic house a few weeks ago to shoot a couple of my favourite cashmere Duffy pieces. I’ve been living in these knits at home, the knitted shorts are so comfortable and feel like more of a modern sweat pant really. Perfect for those nights spent outside enjoying the summer evening too. I just got back to London from a few days holiday in Devon and I made sure I spent every evening out under the stars! Now back to the grind as I have a new collection to finish :)

Duffy is available to buy on Net A Porter - enter at your peril ;)

WHITE STRIPES



As the last of my spring/summer collection is disappearing into sale, I’m happy as the weather is finally good enough to permit me to wear it all here in London. A few pieces Ive been wearing to death is the cami dress (perfectly breezy), the raw v dress (raw silk always gets me) and the croc embossed raffia bomber (need I say more?). This feature comes from a meet up with Coldlilies to shoot my favourites from their site. You can find the online curation here. So many perfectly delicate pieces, when it’s too hot to wear anything else.

DISARONNO TERRACE

Wearing: ASOS White trench, The Row dress, Marni sandals, Natasha Sherling necklace, Rachel Entwistle bracelet

Two nights in London and a hell of a lot of fun later; the Disaronno Terrace celebrating the new Disaronno Sour cocktail finished up this week. We saw Rhodes perform as well as a pretty sick (hello 90s!) DJ set from Charli XCX. I wore my new favourite summer combo of easy going dress and silk trench. This ASOS white trench has been on me ever since it landed through the mail box. Perfect for this heat, when I hate showing off too much skin. I don’t think I even need to talk about this The Row dress as we can just agree it’s damn near perfect. Thanks Disaronno for the wonderful evening(s)!

LONDONERS LISTEN UP

BLOGGERS YARD SALE TOMORROW 

Tomorrow I’ll be doing a yard sale with fellow bloggers Shini of Park & Cube, Alice of Alice Point, Hedvig of Northern Light, Peony Lim and Carrie of WishWishWish. I’ll be having a massive wardrobe clear out with designer and high street pieces all from £1. (Getting to the stage where I just need the space, so the more taken off my hands the better!) See you there!

WISHBONE


Wearing: Claudia Ligari bomber, Wishbone Gracie shirt and Lauren skirt, Chloe sandals, Saint Laurent bag, Céline sunglasses,
Necklace from Natasha Sherling, watch by Larsson & Jennings.

Last week I stumbled upon the Wishbone pop up store on Brompton road; chic, modern, understated classics filled the store and obviously I couldn’t leave without picking up my go-to choice of white silk and black leather. I’m loving the silhouette of longer skirts at the moment, and as Shini pointed out the shirt being longer at the back elongates my body even more too.

Also, I hear you say – Is that another pair of sunglasses!? Call me a sunglasses fiend but I picked up my second pair for the summer, obsessed with the sheer sides and cat eye frames. I’ve had my eye on these for a while. What can I say Céline, you get me.

FELT SLIDES



Before I left for Paris these new felt sandals from Marni fell heavily onto my radar. Hello new shoe obsession! Accompanied by these shorts from Haider Ackermann I found heavily marked down in the sale, I’m completely in love with the bizarre deign; they have an inside belt/waistband/facing that buttons up leaving the outside to droop like an oversized pair of shorts. Amazing!

Also new on my radar is this new Céline shape from Smart Buy Glasses, usually I’m all about the round or cat-eye but Céline’s new angular shapes are just too gewd. I often like buying from stores such as SBG as their selection is global and I’m a serial late night shopper on the web. So happy the weather has turned in London! Goodbye winter wardrobe for good..

MINIMAL FUSS


Featured: Telegraph Magazine, styled by Aurelia Donaldson

So insanely excited to have my AW14 mohair top featured on the cover of the Telegraph magazine a couple of weeks back. My first ever cover and hopefully not the last. Super happy as usually these covers are graced by celebrities and not chic minimal fashion stories, wahoo!

Shop new in Charlie May
 

SPECKLED LIGHT


Wearing: Charlie May jacket and top, Acne jeans and sunglasses, Vagabond slides.

Enjoying the speckled light in Dalston one fine evening, attempting to recreate this genius by Yuvali Theis, SO good though! What a talent. Happy it’s finally hot enough to wear more of my SS14 collection, although looking a bit #normcore in my mom jeans. Cycling favours the trouser, ok!  

Haven’t had much time to post, currently casting for my AW14 campaign (as well as starting SS15! Excitement.) And headed to Paris tomorrow for mens collections. Life is busy but good.

THE SANDAL


Featuring: Ophelie by Paul Wetherell – Intermission Magazine S/S 2014

These sandals have been turning up in editorials across the board, they’re so not my usual type of thing but worn with excessive fray and slouchy black, they have my attention.

Why is it that things I can’t stop thinking about often lie in the love or hate bracket? Givenchy, Acne and even Topshop have some strong fugly contenders right now too. What are we thinking, yay or nay?
