Feeling a little miz as the cold starts rolling in and summer is fast disappearing past all memory. Going back through some old photos I found this look, from July I think, when I stumbled upon these Haider Ackermann shorts in the HN sale; that perfect find when you wonder how you ever lived without a piece in your wardrobe. Worn with another favourite, this easy Thomas Tait bomber jacket picked up at his recent sample sale in East London. Feeling textured all-black a lot these days it would seem.
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..

How good is a white suit with black shoes, or vice versa?? Completely impractical, but maybe that makes me love white tailoring even more. Céline, Haider Ackermann and Narciso Rodriquez (a rising favourite) are some of the best. I’m planning a summer holiday to Turkey in a few months and I’m dreaming of wearing this exclusively, a black bikini under a white blazer hung over the shoulders, and those dreamy loose white shorts – begging myself to make this happen.

In the English countryside at the moment enjoying some R&R before lots of buyers meetings begin to take place next week. I still have so many pictures from the show to share with you that I will start to put up soon, I promise! Right now I’m enjoying taking little 7 month old Kobi out for long walks and knowing that a large chunk of the work is done. :)
Do you like my new shower mat, worn as a skirt? I love seeing fashion through the eyes of someone who doesn’t get it, and my bf constantly comes out with little gems such as this. It’s OBVIOUSLY a laser cut neoprene skirt with a houndstooth lining showing through underneath.. uh, and It’s perfectly warm for braving the cold.

Another it’s-pouring-down-with-rain-what-do-I-wear kind of day! It seems in this situation I just pile things on, until there’s nothing left in my wardrobe. So, other than the family reunion on my body – I have this new clutch c/o Hoss Intropia, that I love, it has all the textures I could want in one thing; paired with this super soft cashmere scarf by Ahilya, who’s a happy new discovery for me.
Are you guys looking forward to MMM x H&M tomorrow? I feel like there’s so much more I want as the days get closer, really not looking forward to those queues though!

This has been my general studio uniform this week, after umming and ahhing over this shirt dress for a while, I decided that it had to be mine (the only reason for umming and ahhing is that I could easily make myself a shirt dress, but that never seems a priority when there’s so much else going on). I’ve been busy making these simple leather cuff bracelets, soon to be available on Bengt. Also, if you’re lucky enough to make it to the HPR press day; you’ll find one in your goodie bag on exit. Perfect!
I also can’t wait to show you guys the lookbook we shot on Wednesday! If you follow me on Instagram you’ll already have some idea but I’ve very proud of this one!
This last week I’ve been fighting a cold and feeling pretty sluggish, living in this jumper combo seemed the only option when biking around East London to various appointments, whilst fighting the vicious wind! This outfits nothing groundbreaking but comfy and effortless shouldn’t be underestimated. The ankle boots were bought as a little pick me up, despite wanting the knee high versions in an earlier post, I knew I would wear these a lot more often.
This week I had to take my camera in to be repaired, after taking these photos with Kit, with her telling me off for not taking good care of her old camera, I found out the whole shutter release needed replacing! The focus had been playing up for weeks but I think I was in total denial. Now that it’s fixed I promise to take more care of it always.
As for the outfit, autumn is here in London and its freezing cold, I’ve been digging out winter wardrobe favourites, such as this Haider Ackermann waistcoat that doubles up as blanket when napping, a wrap from the wind chill, or an umbrella when it rains. It’s all things for winter really and possibly all I need to survive the cold.
I’m more excited that Autumn is here because it means I can start wearing my knee high boots again! I only own two pairs currently, which are these and my triple lace boots. There are so many amazing ones online at the moment, I thought I’d share with you my favourites!
