TopFour : Denim Shirts

30 Apr

Now this is something I never thought I’d say: I want a denim shirt.

It seems strange that after overdosing on denim as a child in the mid-nineties I swore never again to wear denim above the waist but I feel oddly drawn to an oversized slouchy denim shirt, worn with black ankle leggings and white pumps with messy swept back hair looking as if I’d just arrived on a horse galloping wildly across plains and pastures instead of trudging up and down escalators on the london underground.

Nudist

30 Apr

‘Nude’ is a colour I had never considered wearing until about a week ago when I saw a girl in a beautiful peachy-pink silk tunic getting onto the tube. Since then, I have had a mild obsessions with the colour. There is something so wonderfully fresh and elegant about it whilst also seeming very relaxed and not at all try-too-hard. Whilst I wouldn’t recommend decking yourself out head-to-toe in the colour, one carefully chosen item looks stunning. I would wear the jumper with dark grey skinny jeans or leggings and white pumps or the peach jeans with a simple white tshirt and black belt.

Going Coconuts

26 Apr

As the days slowly edge towards summer I find myself craving coconut-ty scents. Just the smell seems to transport me away to a luxurious beach holiday and make the less-than-tropical London weather slightly more bearable.

TopFour : Shoes fit for a Ballerina

26 Apr

With all the walking I do around London, comfortable shoes are an absolute necessity. Recently I have been looking for some beautiful ballet pumps that actually look like the ballerina shoes I used to wear to lessons when I was little.
