The Fashion Medley

Belt the Bag

I literally can’t get enough of this belt bag trend, and I have to say I’m not always this well put together when I wear one. I usually just hang it around my shoulder and forget about it –  but that’s the whole point. Whether it’s around your waist or on your shoulder, you can just forget about it. And whilst I love the style factor bags brings to outfits (+ the color factor for me) I simply can’t stand carrying something with me all day. This one just stays there quietly while emphasizing my waistline, what more can you ask of something so little? . Sunglasses Le Specs x Adam Selman .

Polka Revelation

I could have sworn that polka dots was the print I dislike the most up until a year ago. I love stripes, I enjoy a good floral every now and then, animal prints are totally welcome and so does anything abstract but I never, ever thought I’d be this into polka dots. I basically can’t stop buying anything dotted: blouses, dresses, scarves – bags even. I’m also enjoying the very few days you can sport a blazer, bare leg, combat boots combo so all’s well here. .

The Fashion Medley for Carrera

Carrera Bound

As I was trying to find a witty title for this outfit post (which quite frankly is the hardest thing after finding Instagram captions) I realized the Carrera sunglasses I’m wearing already have the perfect name. Created using the retro aesthetic of the classic pilot shape bound together with a double metal bridge and the iconic Carrera logo, the name may be hinting at anything; a destination, a root, a union… For me, it’s a bold way to embrace the good old pilot with a hint of red, a color I’m trying to adopt into my everyday looks. .

The Fashion Medley

Harriet

I think there was only one way to make a slip dress look cooler and even more sexy at the same time and Millie +Lou managed to find it: hot pressing harriet prints on a vintage ivory satin apron dress. I’m so insanely in love with this dress I even got over my “wearing sleepwear outside” phobia (FOWSO?) – I needed a trench to make it more city-friendly but I’m taking this baby to vacation and there will be numerous nights where it will be just me and her (and some underwear probably…maybe). .

The Fashion Medley for Michael Hill

Spirits Bay

This year I had to postpone all my summer plans (for a little while) thanks to my huge move, but as a Mediterranean at heart, summer starts within before it does anywhere else. Which is why the minute the temperature hits above 20 degrees Celsius, my style changes from structured minimal to clean and laid back almost-bohemian. Leather cross bodies are traded for wicker baskets, bras disappear, anything that touches my skin is doomed to dust until September and of course, my jewelry gets a lot more joyful. Michael Hill‘s Spirits Bay collection is inspired by the form of Totorere shells, which are worn down by the elements until only the strongest part of the shell remains. Designer Christine Hill’s fascination with these shells began 50 years ago and since then she kept on collecting and sketching them; searching for the purest, most graceful form to transform into a celebration of resiliency and strength. Each piece in the Spirits Bay collection represents a remarkable journey: A masterpiece of nature, shaped by the elements, brought to …
