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.

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)!

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.
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..

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.

That summer itch when all you want to do is have a holiday but in actual fact you’re knee deep in work and have nothing planned. The balloon sleeves on this dress quite make me look like I’m about to take off anyhow. Living in all black Y-3 and gleaming white Adidas for the last few weeks, until the heat wave struck and now I don’t quite know what to wear. I think my girl India is rubbing off on me a bit! I was always sporty spice in my school friends group anyway.

Back to London with a bump, brunching, cycling around the city and generally just lapping up the sun. Wearing my typical all white, mesh on top and on my feet with my new Stan Smith PrimeKnits. I never really got onto the Stan Smiths, I was more about the superstars, until these babies; they’re airy and light and perfect for running around the city in the midday sun! Ready to get back to work now after spending the week on holiday. Happy to say I left my camera at home for ultimate recuperation, so you’ll have to just be content with my instagram for now. Don’t we all just prefer instagram anyway really?

Another favourite outfit from what seems to be my new favourite store. I don’t know why Marni has never been so on my radar before but this current collection is ticking all the right boxes; micro silk pleats with raw hem, wrap around belt tie that just goes on and on. Perfect for this heatwave.

I never thought I’d be back on the ripped jeans bandwagon after leaving my teens, but it seems Paige denim has seen otherwise. I actually love them for summer, not only are they my token colour of white but actually feel pretty breezy and cool. Another convert! Trekking around West London for what was probably a Mount St Céline pilgrimage with Shini, finding marble staircases and draping Wisteria along the way.
You’ll forgive me for being awol for the past week due to incredible meetings; sending off AW14 to the factory (and all the organisation that entails), and then my 26th birthday on Friday! I’m now writing to you from my home in Devon, very happy to be back here for a week to recharge my batteries, soaking up some sun and sea air and getting some inspiration for SS15.

When you find yourself wondering around London’s Chelsea, it’s impossible not to stop in at Shop at Bluebird. Lunch on the terrace, a custom facial at their in house spa, a little
lightheavy shopping, and before you know if the afternoon has flown by and it’s time to hitch the bus home.. (a journey that takes 90 minutes but is scenic and beautiful none the less). I completely fell in love with their selection – mainly some beautiful silk Marni pieces, this Helmut kimono wrap jacket that needs to be mine immediately; as well as some chunky Marant leather . It’s my birthday next week if anyone needs a hint!
Shop at Bluebird are having a 20% off bank holiday weekend sale so if you find yourself gravitating towards London’s chelsea, you know where to go.
