WEARING DOTS IN SOUTH WEST LONDON

 Yes another outfit that includes a black and white dotted top. I just want everything dotted at the moment. I have always loved dots (small dots, polka dots, all kinds of dots) but I haven’t really been wearing any up until now. The dots have made a great comeback at least on me (though a have seen them quite a bit on Instagram recently). This top I have been wearing without a bra (yes I have started to learn to embrace my rather small breasts and enjoyed that I can actually go braless without it being uncomfortable) and the material is so soft and nice.

Another great new discovery of mine is these jeans from BDG (Urban Outfitter’s jeans label). They are so comfortable it would be wrong of me not to mention them (and the price isn’t bad either). With their slight kick in the end they have a really flattering fit on the legs.

WHITE SHORT SLEEVE SHIRT & GREEN SILK TROUSERS

Today I have been ‘living’ in London for three weeks and honestly the time flies by so fast I almost can’t keep up with it. Only one week left to school starts. I am nervous, but mostly just excited. These pictures were shot this Sunday where we went to the farmer’s market in Parson’s Green and just chilled out with some good food (aka bread & humus) and a good book in the park (right now I am reading ‘Inside Vogue’ by Alexandra Shulman and I am really enjoying it).

The weather was nice and sunny and perfect for some light weight clothing. These silk trousers from Ganni have definitely been one of my best purchases this summer as they are perfect for those “in-between-days” where it isn’t cold but isn’t exactly boiling either. Paired with my beloved Adidas Stan Smith it was a match made in heaven as we were walking quite a bit.

Exciting things are happening at the moment. I have moved to London for the next 4,5 months with my dear friend Malene to study one semester of Fashion Media & Communication at London College of Fashion. I am so bloody excited about it (and a bit nervous too to be honest). Luckily we have a good three weeks until school starts to settle in and explore the neighborhood and the rest of this lovely city. We are staying in a small studio flat in Kensington which is definitely one of my favorite areas of London but I am also determined to widen my horizon and explore new areas (I still haven’t been south of the Thames).

We shot the pictures yesterday (which were a bit gloomy but nowhere near how terrible the weather is today) in South Kensington. The blouse from Topshop I had just purchased the day before after hunting down one of the last ones in my size (it is unfortunately sold out on their website) and I’m so glad I did that. It is just such a good combination of the wrap trend, dots and pleats. It is a bit cropped but paired with black high-waisted trousers and black boots it makes your legs seem very long.

AUGUST WISH LIST

 It’s already August and soon it will be autumn… but first lets enjoy the fact that it’s still summer. This time of the year I always try to find some more transitional pieces that work in (almost) all kinds of weather. A pair of cropped woolen trousers paired with black kitten heels (which I used to hate but now love) seem to be a perfect combo for the following month or two while we wait for it to become more sweater appropriate weather. I must admit that I’m a bit excited for fall to come. It just is the best season when it comes to clothes (one word: layering!). Speaking of exciting things to come this bag from Marni is a ‘coming soon’ item on Matchesfashion. Such a gorgeous clean white color and a beautiful detail with the round top handle. It’s a winner!
