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.

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!

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.

FLIGHT MODE



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.

METALLIC


Featured: In Style

The two piece metallic short suit from my SS14 collection featured in In Style a while back. Never thought I’d be so into metallics but this pink is the perfect punch for Spring. My friend Anna wears the skirt two piece perfectly, matching sets always look so damn good.

THE NEW STAN SMITH PRIMEKNIT


Wearing: Charlie May baseball tee, Zara skirt, Adidas Stan Smiths, Love Aesthetics x Black Blessed bag, Céline sunglasses, THP rings and Mirlo cuff

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?

RIPPED DENIM


Wearing: COS coat, Charlie May dress, Paige Denim jeans, Isabel Marant sandals, Acne sunnies, Larsson & Jennings watch, Mirlo ID cuff, Alexander Wang tote bag.

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.

PLATFORM


Wearing: Charlie May Ostrich Biker (on sale) and raw mesh shirt, Joseph trousers, Stella McCartney shoes, Saint Laurent bag.

Summer has arrived in London and I am just so happy about it (check out that face in picture two!). It’s getting difficult to get any work done when all you want to do is be in the park with friends and get your new bikini out. I’ve got a pretty exciting/busy week ahead followed by ultimate relaxation in Edinburgh to visit Michael for the bank holiday so it’s all ok :)

Even though the weather is hot, I bike back home from the studio in the evening when the sun isn’t so blaring, so a biker jacket is perfect for the wind. Maybe not the shoes though.. but they’ve been hidden for too long, trainers are out and platforms are back in – for the time being at least..
