gypsy soul

Asos dress, Isabel Marant 'Dicker' boots, Celine 'Audrey' sunglasses, Alexander Wang 'Rocco' bag

Nothing quite screams summer like a paisley dress.

When the temperature starts to heat up, I always make the conscious effort to add more colour into my wardrobe. There's something in the balmy salt-water tinged air that makes me want to neglect the standard greys, black and stripes (god-forbid!) and embrace the bohemian and all things brightly coloured (all the better to show off my tan, my dear).

Sass & Bide tank, Helmut Lang skirt, Zimmermann sandals, Celine clutch

Hello lovelies! 

It feels like years since I last posted anything, I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas/New Years and a nice break from work. I just wanted to drop by and check up on everyone and just remind everyone that (1) I'm not a (completely) terrible blogger, (2) I'm still alive and (3) I'm off to Europe in roughly two weeks! 

It does seem only right that my first post of 2014 is all about the monochrome, with a pop of colour from accessories. The combination of the hot weather and my holiday mood has made me an extremely lazy dresser. This asymmetrical Helmut Lang (and an endless supply of coconuts) has made life a lot easier, it's so easy to just pair it with a simple tank or tee. My instinct to reach for my leather jacket has been quashed by the hot weather but I do have it on standby for the moment the temperature even slightly drops.
