Equestrian chic

As someone who has always catered a deep appreciation for everything traditionally English -from cream and scones to freakin drizzle- I couldn't refrain from putting together a streetwear Royal Ascot themed look (well..minus the hat), for us indulgent ones! Since equestrian fashion has been more of a wintery thing (boots and loads of leather) and inspired by Ferragamo's SS13 twist towards equestrian chic I challenged myself into creating a summer version. Hope you like it!  

Streets of Paris

It would have served me nicely to actually walk the streets of Paris for this outfit, but if you can't go, Carven might bring them to you! Initially I thought the SS13 RTW safari prints from the catwalk went a long way towards transporting us across borders, but when I came across this dress I decided wearing the Seine trumped giraffes and caravans. I love the french feel of the wide scoop neck and  gathered waistline, but mostly I like the fact that you only notice the print when you look really closely, which is also when you realise the extent of the detail. Of course I have no way of knowing how accurate this map is, but all the same! 


What I love the most about summer style is how effortless and comfortable looking chic can be. A maxi dress and a pair of wedges can get you anywhere from day to night. Add to it statement piece of jewellery, like a heavy necklace or an ear cuff, and you have nothing less than the perfect summer outfit! 


I guess I can only call this post timely, considering fashion current affairs! I'm obviously referring to this morning's announcement of the upcoming Isabel Marant x H&M collaboration, in stores next November - so psyched! Isabel will bring her romantic parisien take on fashion to the highstreet, what an interesting twist after cutting edge Maison Martin Margiela. 

Back to the outfit, it's only June so I'd say take advantage of the sales to stock up on romper/mini/flary/all-things-girly dresses for the vacation months. Isabel Marant always offers some nice choices in that department!      

Summer tailoring

One of my favourite fashion trends for SS13 is the combination of good old black and white in a minimalist setting. I love straight lines and structured tailoring so when it comes to suits I usually prefer them slim fitting as opposed to slouchy. I came across this summer suit by MaxMara and it kind of had everything I was looking for in a business look. I like how the simplest colours play against each other, but I still couldn't resist adding a pop of colour, with my latest acquisition, the Chanel hula hoop in bright yellow.  

A jumpsuit thing

I don't believe obsessing over jumpsuits more than I currently do is humanly possible. I will try not to overwhelm you guys with too many onepiece outfits in the future, but I can't promise anything! There's just something about them that makes them so elegant!
