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!

Beaver Chic.

Who doesn’t love a black, fluffy, oversized gilet? It goes perfectly with everything, looks fab and is less commitment than a jacket.

I loved how the gilet finished off this casual look, and like I mentioned above, it’s less commitment than a coat so I didn’t feel too constricted with my jumper underneath.

As summer approaches, it’s getting harder and harder to wear this gilet without sweating to death… or worse, feeling that wet patch under my pits (you know what I’m talking about #tmi), so while we’re in this Spring/limbo weather we’ve been having, I’m making the most of rocking this gilet while I can.

Jack Wills Girl.

Wow it’s been such a long time since I’ve written a post like this. I wore this outfit a few weeks ago when I met up with some friends and tried Five Guys for the first time – and let me tell you now it was the greatest food experience of my whole entire life and I wish I had taken pictures so that I could have shared them on here and gushed about how great Five Guys is… but alas, I guess I’ll have to keep that for another time…

Anyway back to the outfit. My brother bought me this sweater a while back and I’ve been loving wearing it both in and outside of the house. If you know me well enough you’ll know how obsessed much I LOVE LOVE LOVE all things Jack Wills and can’t step foot into a store without buying everything in sight. It’s really cute and comfy and goes just as well with my Nike shorts as it does with a pair of ripped jeans.

And once again I took this pictures on my way to meet my friend, to see what I looked like as I didn’t have enough time to check myself out in the mirror before I left the house.

Plaid & Distressed.

Is it still summer? Why is the sun still shining like it’s mid-July but the cool breeze is making me feel like it’s mid-May? But the most important question of them all: what am I supposed to wear? For those not-quite-any-season kind of weather conditions, your safest bet are a pair of jeans and a plaid flannel shirt.

Since buying these jeans back in July, I’ve been hard-pressed to find an outfit they don’t look great with. If anything, as the months have passed they’ve paired better with even more of my clothes. I thought I’d probably go off them around August, but here I am at the end of September and I’m kicking myself for not investing in another (or two) pairs of these Topshop bad boys. Comfy; tick. Stylish; tick. Weather neutral; double tick – although your knees might get a little chilly in the winter 😛 . You really can’t go wrong.

Aren’t my matching pink nails so cute? Funny that when I first tried this colour I wasn’t such a big fan, but now I’m loving it!

Five Favourites Thursday: Things I Didn’t Buy.

And so it’s the last Thursday of the month and I can’t help but look back on all the things I promised myself I would buy, only to realise that I didn’t even make it to check out.

LE SPECS

While I may not have managed to get these this month, I’m still holding out hope that I’ll finally purchase these cool shades next month…

        

LE SPECS

In all fairness, I’m not sure I was ever 100% certain these sunglasses were for me, but it was kind of like love at first sight (in the sense that the moment I saw them I wanted them, but then the moment I clicked on another item, I’d all but forgotten about them… sad times). I suppose they are pretty cool to look out though.

       

A NEW LAPTOP

Don’t even get me started. To be honest I think I’m in denial about needing a new laptop. I know that I need one, but I’m not in the right place to say goodbye to my beloved Kevin (yes he has a name and he’s very dear to my heart) – I even feel bad typing this on him as we speak… Maybe once I get this fan fixed Kevin can stop overheating and burning my leg.

SUPERGA

I’ve needed a new pair of Superga’s since I bought my last pair, and I’ve been meaning to buy another pair, but then life happened and I kept forgetting/ couldn’t be bothered to decide between a myriad of colour/texture/style options. Life is so tough is it not?

Mallorca: Essentials

LONGCHAMP

Similar to my Superga situation, I’ve needed a new Le Pliage since I bought my last bag. And similar to my Superga situation, I was faced with the same challenges that pretty much put a stop to me fulfilling my purchasing obligations. Oh well, on the plus side I’m fairly certain that by the year’s end I’ll have another bag so I guess it’s not exactly the end of the world huh.

Maybe next month I’ll be happy to report that I actually bought everything on this list? Lol! Happy Thursday.

Summer Morning Walks.

Is it the summer? I want to say yes on account of the nice weather we’ve been having, but then I want to say no on account of the weather we’ve been having… Anyway, yesterday morning instead of going to for a run (which I was so sure I’d do), I went on a leisurely stroll (in my pjs) with my sister around our neighbourhood and enjoyed the tranquil atmosphere.

It’s not a bad way to spend the day off, and certainly makes a difference to staying in the office all day huh?
