October Pinings

An overdue post at 2 months- it has honestly flown by.

I have had a busy 4 weeks. I was off work for my Wedding and Honeymoon, which have truly been the best days of my life and I am so incredibly lucky and blessed to have had such an amazing time and such an amazing husband.

In light of getting back into the swing of things, I decided to share some of my current obsessions and things post-wedding (no more planning means lots of brain space!). I already have my Nike trainers which I have been wearing every weekend and with a recent iPhone upgrade I do now also have a marble phone case!

Slowly I am sure these will all make it into my orbit, but at the weekend I saw the most amazing Camel Wool Coat that won’t evade my memory… so I feel this might be on my next agenda. If I splurge I will be sure to share some pictures very soon; let’s face it, Fall is in full swing and the air is cold so I think it is a necessity to buy!


Stockholm Style

Whilst in Stockholm it become obvious after only a few hours that my preconceptions of Scandinavians being cool was true; but way cooler than I thought. I didn’t see a single person dressed badly, not even a single person having an ‘off day’. Everyone was dressed with that achingly effortless vibe, the sort that looks straight out of an Acne lookbook.

Women in a simple uniform which consisted of a great tailored coat in classic colours, along with a simple wool tassel scarf in Grey, Camel or Black. Followed by a great structured cross body bag and finished off with flats (always); either trainers in the style of Stan Smiths or New Balance, or a classic black ankle boot.

Not forgetting a compulsory pair of sunglasses of your choosing, whatever they were they always finished off the outfit to the next level.

With that in mind, I obviously came away with something to add into my outfits and continue the Scandi dressing at home; my Samsoe bag from my previous post. I also got a lovely wool scarf in grey as a gift for my birthday too, which came in handy with the chilly wind there!

All I need now to complete my wardrobe is a pair of great boots, my obvious choice would be the Acne Jensen Boot or a beautiful pair I saw in Fillipa K, this will now be on my radar as they can be easily worn for the rest of spring with tights or bare legs as it gets warmer and then all FW16.

Until it is Autumn again, I will be saving my money up for a classic coat which will most definitely be wool or if I am lucky a wool blend with cashmere, probably Navy and beautifully tailored.

Stockholm style has my heart.

Stefanel Fall/Winter 15

So recently I have been frequenting past the Stefanel store in St Christopher’s Place, and I have to say I think I am in love. Their whole Fall/Winter collection is amazing; full of luxurious cashmeres and wools, slouchy silhouettes, classic greys, creams and camels along with unexpected twists on everyday basics which. As they put it ‘timeless classics’, which I am all about.
