process of elimination

Zara faux fur vest, Urban Outfitters top, Topshop shorts, New Look shoes, H&M feather necklace.

The boy has returned from his holiday a little worse for wear and is attempting a quick recovery before we depart for Cannes tomorrow.  Although I am currently enthralled by Autumn/Winter fashion, the thought of lying on a beach in the company of a minuscule bikini, stack of light hearted novels, and ice cold glasses of rose still excites me to no end.  Let's see if I have the discipline to cram nine days worth of outfits into a tiny carry-on case.  My only goal for today ;-)

Falling Leaves





(Let's Get Right and Bohemian Punk, both on Tumblr)

My ideal Autumn wardrobe...

Currently lounging in my flat, scalding my tongue on honey and ginger tea, half watching old episodes of Ugly Betty, intending to begin another novel, sporadically devouring bowls of pasta, transfixing my eyes on scrolling images via Tumblr, and texting the drunken boy...all while sounds of the Notting Hill Carnival subtly float in the background.  Ah Sunday.

missing boy

If you follow me on Twitter, you will already be aware of the fact that the boy and has abandoned his duties as best friend, kitchen cleaner, senior back tickler, and outfit post photographer for a long weekend with the boys.  Without his handy cameraman skills it will be slightly difficult to capture any proper posts for the next few days, but thanks to my friend Nell's numerous iPhone apps were were able to come up with a few images from today's girl fest.  After two lunches, lots of wine, and a slightly tipsy shopping session I'm looking forward to an all female weekend.  Luckily I have a bachelorette party to attend tomorrow ;-)

I didn't manage to get any clear pictures of these intricately beautiful Azza Fahmy for Preen bangles today, but they really are an essential for a wrist adornment obsessed girl like myself.  Find the bangles and the rest of Azza Fahmy's collection here! I'll attempt to get better shots of these tomorrow!

faux summer

Acne shirt from my-wardrobe.com, Topshop shorts and boots, Alexander Wang diego bag.

The boy and I stumbled upon perfect summer seating outside a romantic bar only to be left shivering under outdoor heating in the middle of August.  I think Autumn has already descended upon lovely London, but before I pull out the knits and shearling this gorgeous, light Acne blouse deserved to have a turn without layers.  Probably the best blouse I have ever worn and worth the slight investment.  Head over to my-wardrobe.com to pick up your own and maybe get tempted by the wedge ankle boots as well ;-)

your dreams are waiting in a hidden corner

Maxi dress courtesy of Love, Asos boots, Zara jacket, H&M feather necklace, bag courtesy of Kipling, Miss Selfridge headband.

Sunday's outfit was infitely comfortable, and ideal for the random rainy/sunny weather that has been typical of London. Just over a week until I am in the South of France ;-) The fact that I'm embarking on a beach holiday and also craving Autumn/Winter fashion has caused my shopping habits to be a little more schizophrenic than usual. Luckily dresses and boots are always a safe way to go. Off to scour a hopefully deserted shopping mall...and if any of you are looking for an online bargain have you checked out The Outnet's pop-up clearance sale that started this morning?! 80% off a Marc Jacobs handbag anyone?? Hurry...click below to shop!!!

Alexander Wang dress worn over AA mesh dress, Topshop headband, H&M feather necklace, Christian Louboutin shoes, Chanel tattoos, and bag courtesy of Kipling.

I found myself so exhausted yesterday I was forced to take a 20 minute nap before meeting a friend. Power naps are surprisingly effective, but not when it leaves you five minutes of getting ready time before running out the door on a Saturday night. In these situations an oversized sweater, lashings of eyeliner, and a trusty headband can work wonders.

all we need

American Apparel dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, Topshop hat, Low Luv necklace from my-wardrobe.com.

My attempts to convince myself summer will soon end has unintentionally swayed me to dabble in a habitual black palette. I fell in love with this reliable dress all over again last night. Often the satisfyingly simple and undisturbed are the most appealing. The boy and I decided to return to the intimately familiar for our Thursday dinner date. Notting Hill can veer into a haunting quiet mood as carnival nears, so it was a relief to dine in a friendly environment. We consistently rely on The Clarendon for delicious simple food, romantic candlelight, and the hum of a relaxed soundtrack. I devoured my scallops and steak with great enthusiasm, and was elated to sample their super rich chocolate ice cream. Our night closed with a rain filled wander home and the sanctuary of a cozy bed.

I hope everyone is excited for the weekend ;-)
