Trendspotting – Check Mate

Plaid shirts, houndstooth coats and checkered anything for fall are hardly new trends, but this season things have been seamlessly integrated into fall fashion bringing new life to popular patterns.  While I will always have a soft spot for a great plaid shirt, this season I am loving the oversized checkered blazer.  This is such a versatile and wearable piece of clothing that looks great layered over jeans and a t-shirt, dressed up with a midi skirt or paired with cropped trouser for an elevated day look.  You will look fabulous however you choose to rock this trend.  Here are some of my favourite looks featuring the checkered blazer:

Trend Spotting Fall 2017 – White Footwear

I love the fact that over the past few years people have thrown caution to the wind and included white in their post Labour day wardrobe.  From winter white denim to cream coloured suits – I love it all.  White is such a clean and flattering colour, and while it makes it extra challenging for klutzes like me to maintain a tidy appearance all day long I still love to rock it.

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past year, you know that the white sneaker trend has officially become a wardrobe staple.  Whether you rock them with dresses or suits, jeans or joggers they look great and add an extra bit of cool to your look. This season though, the white footwear trend has been elevated to a new level.  While the casual sneaker remains a staple, many designers such as The Row, Balenciaga and Marc Jacobs all sent fabulous white boots and shoes down the runway during their Fall/Winter 2017 shows. One of my favourite fashion mavens Celine Aagard even included a gorgeous pair of white shoes in her collection for Eurosko.  This trend is showing no signs of slowing down as designers have also featured white footwear in their Spring 2018 presentations, most recently Rag and Bone during New York Fashion Week.  Needless to say – I love this trend!

While white footwear is not for the timid, it is fun, playful and definitely makes a statement.  My favourite is the white bootie and the white heeled shoe – both of which can be easily worn with many outfits.  Here are some of my favourite white footwear from the Fall 2017 runways and Instagram:

Street Style Favourites from Copenhagen Fashion Week S/S 18

Copenhagen held it’s bi-annual fashion week a few weeks ago to showcase designs for the Spring Summer 2018 collections.  As expected the local fashion elite was out in full force. While it would be easy to group the fashion from Scandinavian countries into one group, the truth is that each country has it’s own unique style.  Copenhagen’s style stars used the spotlight to show case their styling prowess by mixing bold patterns, bright colours and hi/low fashion with a quiet confidence that most people can only dream of pulling off.  Many elevated the cool girl factor by arriving in style on bicycles  – not something you would normally see from street style stars.  Here are some of my favourite looks from Copenhagen’s Fashion Week S/S 2018:

Inspiring Interior

Today’s Inspiring Interior is a design dream.  Designed by the architecture and interior design firm Conran + Partners, this London home is a perfect lesson in timeless chic.  The muted colour palette compliments the brightly coloured furniture that has been strategically placed around the home.  I especially love the grey stone table and gorgeous green chairs in the kitchen.

If this was my home I would make a few minor changes with the artwork and some of the lighting but overall I really love the design of this home.  It is elegant and timeless contemporary design at its finest.

I hope that you have a beautiful day! XXS❤️

Inspiring Interior

Hi Everyone!

Summer is FINALLY here…….well at least according to the calendar.  Now that we are officially into June I find myself daydreaming of sun, sand and vacations a little bit more then usual.  Today’s Inspiring Interior is the perfect modern beach getaway.  Located in Tel Aviv, this gorgeous abode perfectly blends minimalism, city living and beach dreaming all in one beautiful apartment.  With large windows, breathtaking beach views, clean lines and wide open spaces this home is a work of art.  I love the glass walls and shelving that seamlessly divides the rooms without forsaking the natural light that streams through the entire space.  Wood paneling, neutral tones and materials perfectly balance the glass walls and shelves.  It’s clear that the designer and architect thought very carefully about the layout of the space when designing this apartment, and successfully managed to bring the beauty of the outdoor views into the interior of the home.  It is absolutely stunning!
