SIMPLICITY

We all have that one pair of jeans or dress or sneakers that you can wear no-matter-what and just feel good. My version of this is the white striped flowy trousers from Forever New. I feel like I can wear them to the beach with a bikini top or to a fancy event with some heels and a nice top (as long as I don’t mess some tomato sauce or something on them and actually keep them white!)

NOT SO MONDAY BLUES

There were a couple of factors that contributed to us going to Bali in June. I mean, who would not want to go to Bali?

The colour, the texture, its timelessness, ¬†the fact that it adds an element of sophistication to any outfit while keeping a hint of casual flare (you know what I mean). After desiring a camel coat for years, I finally¬†bought one from Topshop at the beginning of this winter. Every morning when I decide on my outfit for the day, I always end up going back to this coat of mine… It has been a constant struggle to not wear it every single day!
