Style – Summer dress style tips

July 26, 2016

Spending the Summer in a city like London can sometimes pose its challenge: one day it’s sweltering hot, the next day is cool and rainy. I have been thinking about what would my style tips be for having a stylish and comfortable Summer in London and this is what I came up with:

Wear a versatile length – Regardless of what the weather is, Summer maxi dresses are here to save the day! They’re versatile and can be worn whether the days are on the hot or the cool side, all you need to do is layer up or down or wear a pair of comfortable sneakers or let your toes get some sun with a pair of sandals.


Comfort and style – One of the things I have come to appreciate ever since I moved to London, is the importance of comfortable shoes, as one ends up walking so much. Whether a pair of flat shoes, sandals or sneakers (my current favourites), I can’t live without flats anymore. It’s not a problem, as they can be just as stylish as heels.


Wellbeing starts from the inside –  When it’s hot and especially if you have to go underground (Central Line, eurgh), make sure to stay well hydrated and carry a bottle of water with you at all times. Do like me and get a cute bottle with binchotan charcoal in it to filter out impurities – it’s great!

There’s always the sun – Well, we’re talking about London so using the word ‘always’ might be a bit of an overstatement. However, when it comes out, it can be quite strong. As such, don’t forget to wear a hat (animal ears optional, haha) and the good old sunscreen.

Outfit details: Maxi Dress – c/o JD Williams; Flectarn Shirt – German army, purchased at the Mauerpark flea market last year; Brooch Selection – cat from Les Nereides, rhinestones was my nan’s and the bow was a gift; Animal Ears Cap – Ebay; Sneakers – New Balance, via TK Maxx; Tote Canvas Bag – Uniqlo x Kaws collaboration; Tassely Socks – H&M (have had them for years).


What are your style tips for the Summer?

OOTD – I’m Much More Interesting on the Internet

April 13, 2015

Sometimes you find something so very amusing that you have to get it and make it part of your life – and that’s what happened with this t-shirt. I saw it somewhere and turned to Ebay immediately to get my own and was lucky enough to find it! The irony of it cannot be lost on a blogger, right?

OOTD – Freezing at Somerset House

January 19, 2015

A couple of weekends ago I went around Somerset House to see the Chris Stein/Negative: Me, Blondie, and The Advent of Punk exhibition. It was well worth it and I’d advise anyone to go, although it closes on the 24th. I saw super cool photos of Blondie, The Ramones, Richard Hell, Iggy Pop and many others that were involved in the NYC punk scene in the late 70’s. The photos were absolutely brilliant and so inspiring, not just because of the people in them but also makes me want to learn how to take good pictures!
