Just a quick post here….if you have followed me for a while you will know how beloved my Old Celine sweaters are, not only am I in love with the oversized shape but the cashmere is the thickest I have EVER felt and they just don’t bobble, they were eye wateringly expensive but once I had one I was addicted and I bought another a few years alter and found one in Bicester village too and I literally wear them all the time, there is nothing more cosy.
This year I saw the Khaite cashmere sweater which was the same oversized shape….. and it was just as thick and felt exactly the same as the Celine…the question was, would it bobble? I took the plunge last September and bought this Marion style (my grey isn’t on sale though) which was the same shape as my beige Celine one….. I have worn it once or twice a week ever since, and happy to report it is exactly the same quality.
I had on the grey yesterday, and got lots of requests what it was on DMs..I went online and linked a few yesterday and this morning when I was about to story them to my suprise a few have gone on sale with 40% off !!!!…..mine is the same as the Burgundy…I have personally ordered the cream rib and the black ribbed one…I haven’t felt this style in real life but am hoping they are just as amazing..size down or stay with usual size as they are very oversized
I also found these fab pieces new to the sale, love the Ganni leather skirt and the leather blouse and the Ganni dress is the dream…they also have my fab red Saint Laurent sunglasses on sale with 40% off…I Also added a few knits which are fab fore longing at home…
Hi Everyone, full disclosure, I obviously wrote this before the coronavirus took over, but so many of you said you wanted me to carry on as normal for a distraction…so here is the blog post as scheduled.….I hope you are all staying safe and cosy, goodness know when we will all be out again, but in the mean time here is a little bit of pretty…Net-A-Porter also has 15 % off lots of items right now so lots of the items here are included. Hope you enjoy 🙂
As much as I love knits and teddy coats, as soon as Christmas is over I’m ready to throw off the heavier layers and step into spring. At the moment I’m really big into suiting. It’s super on trend this season and quite timeless at the same time. Pinks and pastels are another trend I’m happy is continuing. I’ve been a fan for years and am really just loving tone on tone and colour blocking.
I know its only March but I’m already looking forward to vacations and spring holidays… especially sunny climates this time of year. I try to invest in a few key pieces that are timeless, will work on holiday, and also in the city. I’m sharing with you lots of looks from our recent trip to the Maldives, all from MyTheresa.com that I feel are great investment pieces and ones that you’ll wear on repeat all summer and future ones to come. I’ve broken it down into lots of different categories so you can easily browse through my favourite selections. I’ve included lots of colour and strong silhouettes with a lot of statement sleeves, because I feel it’s a trend that’s going to be around for a while. And I’ve also included some beautiful spring pieces from MyTheresa for the girls. xx
Johanna Ortiz and Gül Hürgel are always two of my go-to brands for summer dresses. Many of Johanna Ortiz dressesalways have the statement sleeve which I love and the fabrics and cuts are divine. I wore this one in the Maldives. It’s such a beautiful style. Very flattering with the vertical stripes and the back detail is so pretty. For some reason it’s also half the price of their normal dresses which is always a bonus. Gül Hürgel makes the most beautiful resortwear. I have dresses of hers from 5 years ago that I still pull out from my beach holidays — always timeless and this years are no exception. Love this floral print one I wore in the Maldives.
BLOUSES / SHORTS
I do love separates in the summer. I’m not always about the floaty dresses, I think separates are always super amazing and versatile,. The blouses this season from Miu Miu are so cool and I love that you can team them with skirts, shorts jeans, giving lots of flexible options to wear them.
I’m loving the paper bag waste silhouette at the moment. It’s a super flattering shape. The oversized fit is not only super comfortable but super flattering. I feel like they make your legs look elongated. My personal favourites are the denim Isabel Marant and the Miu Miu Khaki, which go with everything.
I had a Botega bag last year. They’re a perfect evening bag / summer bag or even small day bag. I have the gold still from last year. One of the best bags I’ve ever bought. I love it, especially the gold goes with everything. The blueis beautiful. It’s slightly less versatile but such a stunning colour. I love this little Miu Miu basket bag. I’ve always wanted a Mark Cross one but not sure I’d spend that much on a wicker bag — this ones half the price and super super cute. I used it all the time in the Maldives.
