Superga X Luisaviaroma.

Can we take a moment to appreciate these dreamy Superga sneakers? When I first saw that Superga would have a special collection with online luxury retailer Luisaviaroma, I knew I had to get in on it (especially after missing the Superga and The Row’s collaboration a few years back 😦 ). These special editions come in velvet and canvas options, ribbon laces and a chunky platform. I can’t wait to wear them out!

    

And I recently spied Superga’s latest collaboration with accessory brand, Charlotte Simone, and the collection looks so cute!

Wwake.

As a strong believer that less is more, it makes perfect sense that I’d be going crazy over my latest net-a-porter finding: Wwake. Based in New York, Wwake is a fine jewellery line focused on delicate, dainty, stackable pieces that look effortless and super chic. But don’t let the simplicity fool you, as its this same simplicity that makes the pieces truly stand out, and is why my wish list is now currently packed with beautiful gems I’ll be saving up for.

Gowns, Gowns, Gowns.

While it’s true it’s not every day I’m able to wear a fancy gown… in fact come to think about it, I don’t think I’ve ever worn one, but that doesn’t stop my undying appreciation for a floor-length dress with a bit of character and charm. Though some are not ones that would usually appeal to me (Marchesa I’m looking at you even though I’ve been in love with you gowns for at least over a decade), there’s still something about all of them that I love. Case in point, the gowns below that drew my attention for various reasons.

I guess I’ll have to make do with just looking.

Glitter and Jewels.

There have been a lot of beautiful shiny things on net-a-porter recently and I couldn’t just keep them to myself. Though I’d say my taste in jewellery has always remained pretty consistent, as I’ve gotten older I’ve seen that there’s a very specific type of jewellery that drives me while. Dainty, delicate small pieces that are so cute and feminine yet understated and not too flashy – especially when it comes to earrings.

But the thing I love the most about all these beautiful shiny things? They’re just so nice to look at, and it’s as simple as that.

Head Over Mules In Love.

It’s no secret that mules have become all the rage in recent months, much like it’s no secret that my love for the peculiar shoe is real (see posts here and here), so surely this post will not seem too out of the ordinary. A couple of weeks ago while updating my net-a-ports wish list, I came across these bad boys. Now, as much as I love me some mules, the heel has to be a particular height otherwise I’m not interested, but there was something about these Alexander Wang mules that grabbed my attention. Could it be the cut-out heel or the fabulous feather detailing? Or the fact that a few days prior I had found myself mysteriously mesmerised by Loeffler Randall’s low heeled sandals?

      

      

I’ll never know. But one thing I do know is that my love for mules is no longer height-biased.

Obsessed With: Maggie Marilyn.

So, there I was, minding my own business, scrolling through the recently added section on net-a-ports (as you do), adding things to my wish list, when I kept coming across such distinctly feminine yet not super girly pieces. I soon discovered that coincidentally, all these great pieces I was coming across, were all from New Zealand based brand, Maggie Marilyn. Practically still a baby (it was only launched in 2016), the line is sold exclusively on net-a-porter which helps add to its charm.

      

While I’m not usually a fan of ruffles – I find them too messy and unnecessary – there is something about MM’s ruffled pieces that makes me want to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe with nothing but ruches and frills.

I can’t wait to see more from this brand in the future. Check out more of the collection here and here.

The Wolves.

Today’s Soundtrack is taking a little break from all the country I’ve been sharing lately. It’s been a while since my hubs aka Ben Howard’s released any new music/ has been on the blog/ I’ve listened to any of his songs, but the other day I got suddenly got the urge to listen to his songs. ‘The Wolves’, from his debut album Every Kingdom, has always been a favourite of mine, and I’m actually very surprised I haven’t shared it on here before. So what better song to share when I’m in this Ben Howard mood?


I don’t know when Ben’ll next be releasing something, but I really hope it’s soon. In the meantime, I’ll just have to keepy Every Kingdom, The Burgh Island and I Forgot Where We Were on repeat. Happy Sunday.
