The Happiness Jean

One of my favourite go to outfits for years now has been the jeans and tee combo, but it wasn’t till I saw Alexa Chung and Miranda Kerr looking absolutely exquisite in this laid back combo with killer heels, that I realised this casual look could be dressed up for business lunches and afternoon meetings.

It’s all about quality and when it comes to quality I immediately turn to J Brand. Their jeans are timeless, classic and sophisticated with an emphasis on fit and the inspiration to make a woman look and feel beautiful in her jeans.

How do you dress up your jeans look?

Bleeker Street

August 14, 2014

Everyone always ask’s me “What’s your style” and I find it so hard to answer them. Thing is I don’t have a specific ‘style’ and maybe that’s a bad thing but to me it’s a good thing.

I dress according to my emotions when I wake up in the morning and as fashion evolves and moves on so does my style. Whether I’m in a preppy I’m-off-to-tea kinda outfit or a simple Scandinavian inspired outfit it’s still me, it’s my style. Every day I am inspired by things I see walking the streets, my travels, the internet, it all influences my style and my personality.

So no, I can’t define my style, last week I was boho-chic and this week I’m preppy… and I kinda like it that way…

High Line

August 4, 2014

One of my favourite spots in New York City is the High Line in West Village. The High Line is a 1,6km linear park built on a part of the old New York Central Railroad. The first two phases have been completed and the third phase is expected to open later this year.

Yes it may be over ran by tourists on weekends but despite that I still find it a relaxing space. With little cafe’s set up it’s easy to grab yourself an ice coffee and sit under a tree with your book listening to the sound of people, kids laughing and the sound of trickling water. It’s urban gardens like these that make living in a bustling city bearable.

Enough about the High Line, more about the clothes right 😉 Well, Zara is currently having a sale and I went a little O.T.T. My outfit below is a full Zara look for under $100! How cute are these striped trousers?! Little tip when it comes to wearing striped pants, always, and I mean always, make sure you buy a pair with vertical stripes and not horizontal. Vertical stripes make you look slimmer and taller.

P.S For those of you visiting, going to visit or live in New York City the High Line offers free stargazing every Tuesday night from 7:30pm. You can gaze at the stars, planets, and moon through the high-powered telescopes of the Amateur Astronomers Association, and chat with the experts about the sights you see. Pretty cool I’d say.

Baby Blue

May 15, 2014

Hands up, who else is in love with the placid blue fashion trend?! I thank you Alexander Wang, Barbara Bui, Burberry and Elie Saab for bringing this colour to my attention.

In the past I would not have looked twice at this colour, never mind wear it. Now I simply can’t get enough of this beautiful shade, so much so I created a full head-to-toe look in placid blue.

There’s something extremely calming and elegant about the colour. I immediately feel dressed up without even trying to. The highest degree of effortless a girl could ever hope for.Screen Shot 2014-05-14 at 10.03.41 PMAbove are three placid blue items I wish I owned:
1.) Dior Porcelaine nail polish
2.) Alexander Wang Diego bucket bag
3.) Marc Jacobs rose gold watch

But for now I’ve made do with with this ridiculously amazing, oversized sweater from Trenery, this sweater cost me an arm and a leg but OMG… does it feel like Heaven.

If you looking for some placid blue items for your own wardrobe I’d suggest making a stop at Zara or Mr.Price, they have quite a few items in this magnificent colour.

Would you wear a full head-to-toe placid blue look or do you find this colour a little daunting? I would love to hear your thoughts.
