October Moodboard

Thursday, 25 October 2018
I've been so inspired by the beautiful weather this October and felt drawn to clothing that incorporates the colours of the season. I'm picturing a palette of dark fallen leaves in wet piles, glossy umber conkers, the fading remains of summers roses, and muted cool greens that sparkle with dew in the morning sun. Heavily romanticised Autumn colours, of course- sometimes a grey day is nothing more than a grey day. 

here is my shop page of clothing I'm into at the moment 

Acne Studios Autumn

Saturday, 1 September 2018
Whilst browsing ready-to-wear new in on Acne Studios I was inspired by the beautiful colours- and then clocked today is September 1st. The unofficial first day of Autumn. Acne has been in my top three brands for about 10 years now, they consistently strike the perfect balance between timeless chic classics and creative, innovative design. The Acne aesthetic is everything, basically. And no-one does Autumn/Winter dressing better then the Swedes... 

Amsterdam Photo Diary

Thursday, 28 June 2018
 This post is a little belated as I visited Amsterdam in late March, but I kept looking back at my phone pictures and dreaming of another trip. Amsterdam is up there with my favourite cities I've ever been to. One of those places you wander around thinking constantly "when can I move here". I loved the gorgeous canal houses, with their striking gables and funny hooks to hoist furniture up. The lovely cobbled streets, rammed with bicycles, and endless bridges across the water. I would really like to see more of the Netherlands now.

We stayed at the Hoxton which was situated within the "De 9 Straatjes" aka The Nine Streets, which are full of little cafes and cool shops. The hotel was beautiful and the perfect location away from the typical garish touristy zone (there was no stag do in sight). I wouldn't recommend the restaurant at the hotel, but in the evenings it was nice to wander down and sit in the armchairs and sofas that face out on to the sparkling water.

My 5 recommendations for first time visitors 
Van Gogh Museum where I picked up a knitted Dutch Miffy wearing an Van Gogh sunflower dress! I die!
Foodhallen great food market with amazing tacos
Micropia which was very cool, modern and interesting- for science fans this a must
Anne Frank House as a little girl who read this book several times this was surreal to go visit and very humbling to see one families experience of a horror that affected millions
Restaurant De Kas delicious organic food straight from the garden on site

Summer Style Inspiration

Saturday, 23 June 2018
It is that glorious time of year again when the hot sun shines from dawn to dusk. Despite that fact I'm not spending my summer in an 17th Century Italian villa a la Elio in Call Me By Your Name, this moodboard is firmly Mediterranean inspired. I'm loving crisp white shirts, linen dresses, vintage cotton blouses, silk midi shirts and lots of gold jewellery. Also a Toteme swimsuit with a Toteme towel and Toteme headscarf would do very nicely..
