Shades of Pastel

Shades of Pastel

When creating this outfit I had one thing that I really wanted to put in the post: a cropped turtle neck. I've seen them on a few blogs recently (Isabella at Views of Now has a white one) and wanted to show you how I would wear it. When I found this gorgeous plum crop top I instantly saw the Cecily bag in this amazing mint, and knew I wanted to pair the top with soft pastel colours.  To me, this would be a perfect outfit for a summer in Europe. I love this new take on Espadrilles and I've been seeing them lots in stores recently. I seriously need a job because there are some many things I want! Anyway, let me know what you think of this- would you wear it?

New Bond Street, London

After yesterday's meeting I headed over to New Bond Street to get some photography, Sartorialist style! I love doing this and really want to do it more often. I love each and every one of these outfits for different reasons- I think they all show great style. One of the reasons I like doing these posts is because everyone likes the images for different reasons. 

I love the pink and yellow- great combination! Also love all black with small gold details, simple yet effective. 

I LOVE how eclectic and, in my eyes, brave this couple are. The matching KENZO is a fantastic statement.

Again, I love the simplicity and layering of this outfit. The little flash of blue is really pretty too. 

The first thing that made me want to photograph these friends was the orange gilet. But when I looked closer at when each girl I loved the coordination of sweater and bag (on the left) and the bright colour popping out from a neutral pallet (on the right).

Let me know what stands out to you from these images in the comments! x

Sport-Luxe: A Work in Progress

If there's one trend I love at the moment it's Sport-Luxe. This is kind of ironic because if you know me, you'll know I'm not particularly sporty... But something about the simple silhouettes and heels really appeals to me. I got out my beloved scrap book to document it, of course. Here are some close ups...

These pages are still works in progress but I wanted to share them with you! By the time I'm done the pages will be full! My favourite image is definitely from the S/S13 ads for DKNY. I love the bright primary colours in the collection and the textures leather is gorgeous! Click here for some more images from my scrap book!
I've seen lots of other bloggers with sport-luxe inspired outfits so it's obviously quite a popular trend. What do you guys think?

I Made Y'all a Cake!

Today I hit 20 followers! To celebrate this I made you all a cake. I wish I could send you all a piece, but instead here are the photos. I made a carrot cake, my favourite! Sadly, it didn't last long when the family caught on. Grab a slice while you can!

But honestly, thank you to everyone of you that follows me and Total Modisch. I can't wait to see where this journey takes us! I have exciting news in the upcoming months, so stick around!
