SPRING SILKS




Happy Saturday everyone! I recently rediscovered these silk joggers that are the perfect answer to spring dressing, they're a great alternative to jeans and tailored cigarette trousers and super comfy too! They work great with skates and heels for day-to-night dressing, so if you're looking for a Spring-trouser-alternative give them a go!
I'm wearing Silk Joggers by Topshop Boutique (similar here and here), boyfriend's sweater from Topman, Céline bag, shoes and bracelet and sunglasses.

LESSONS FROM VALENTINO





The Spring Summer collection from Mr. Valentino was one of my favourites, all of the incredible embroidery and detail on the dresses, a kind of nod to all things Grecian, Egyptian, North African? Whatever it was it was beautiful, and I couldn't wait to see the collection land which it has, in volume, across my favourite online sites.

The new love on all street style shots have to these fringed bags, I guarantee they will be the new it clutch of the season, along with these coin/gryphon studded shoes (that come in every type of 'flat' you can think of).

I also couldn't help but fall in love with this simple blue shirt (as seen on Mira Duma at the Vogue Festival... that's probably why) teamed with these simple structured Carven shorts is my idea of a perfect Spring outfit.

So what i've learnt for dressing this summer a la Valentino, I will need a) a lot of fringed goods, b) a lot of accessories with Gryphon's on them and c) some kind of embroidered pieces with lots of Grecian coins attached. The hunt begins!

SUNDAY SKATES









Happy Sunday everyone! Have finally hung up my jeans and switched to tailored trousers for the rest of the season; this Zara pair are my favourite, super comfy with the elastic waistband and the perfect length too! Hope you're all enjoying the sun!

THE NEW SWEATPANTS




Celine, available on request from Departement Feminin


The new sweatpants; the comfortable kind that are so luxurious you can now actually be seen in them in public without people thinking you ran out of time in the morning watching Breaking Bad on Netflix and forgot to change for work. Having spent some time on my new favourite website, Department Feminin, I have been easily drawn into viewing the beautiful ready-to-wear pieces by Celine (which are hard to find in pictures other than lookbook images and actually visiting the store), upon which I came across the subject in question, the new sweatpants. Lucky for us, we can find some pretty awesome wallet friendly alternatives that give off the same 'sport-luxe' vibe for spring dressing. Pair with a cashmere sweater, wool scarf, and skate shoes for the Philo feel!
