So Shoe Me

I’ve become a bit shoe obsessed lately. I go through phases of obsessing over a particular garment or accessory or print or fabric or era, and at this moment it’s shoes. Las Cruxes carries the exact shoes I am drawn to of late (and has introduced me to a bunch of new brands as well) – neutrals and bold colours, simple 70s designs, practical styles and seemingly comfortable heel heights for all-day wear…qualities that make for the perfect shoe (and a never-ending need for new shoes) in my opinion.

What’s your favourite pair? What type of shoes are you loving at the moment? Let me know in the comments below!

Lykke WullfLykke wullf

I’ve gone through quite a transition with my personal style, which you wouldn’t even know since  I haven’t really been sharing my outfits here. My style has become a lot less vintage-cutesy-feminine-whatever and I’ve been wearing pants pretty much non stop which is quite different for me. In a sense my style has become a lot more minimalist (ie, trendy) while maintaining some of that vintage feel ya’ll know me for, mostly in the way of the 70s. That’s how I would describe it if I had to. In reality, I’ve just been wearing whatever the hell I want. Some days that’s modern minimalist, other days that’s vintage 70s. Whatever it is, it has been freeing to just not care that my style is kind of indefinable at this point. So all this to say, Lykke Wullf is like a visual reference for me of what my style is or would like to be. It’s 70s inspired while feeling very now. It’s easy, flattering and the perfect union between femme and masculine.

How about you? You feeling these pieces and styling? What are you loving at the moment?

Miss Crofton 2016

Miss Crofton 2016Ooo Baby Baby

Miss Crofton has remained my favourite lingerie and underwear brand for a long time now (and since TLO is no more, it definitely holds first place).They consistently come out with pieces that are feminine, sexy and wearable…wearable being the keyword there. It’s all too often you find pieces that are interesting and sexy, but surely not something you can wear outside of the bedroom. I have a hard time finding reason to spend money on something that rarely gets worn because it’s intended for a specific occasion, so I like the idea of a brand that strives for both comfort and sexiness, and can be worn at any time – star of the show or hidden beneath your clothes.

This collection may be my favourite yet, although, I have been known to say that with many of my favourite labels season after season. Aside from wanting to own each piece (I really do!), the lookbook is the best yet, imo. It’s clearly inspired by Pantone Colour of the Year and the clean, pastel aesthetic of the internet world, which, if I’m being honest (and a little sassy) is becoming a bit “ya, we get it.”, but still undeniably visually appealing, so I shall remain a fan.

Jumpsuits!

Who else has really been loving jumpsuits of late? I now own dungarees (which you have seen), a simple black jumpsuit with a back cut-out and I’m hoping to add a colourful printed one to my roster sometime soon.

I love the ease of jumpsuits. Much like a dress, it’s all you need to make an outfit (maybe some accessories too, though). There are so many pieces now that fit pretty well any style (sophisticated, boho, minimalist, vintage-inspired…you get it), that it would be easy to find something for yourself. I thought I’d share a few from around the web (mostly ASOS, apparently) that I found quite striking.

So what about you? How do you feel about jumpsuits? Own one? Want to own one? Which one here is your fav? Let me know in the comments below.

SuTurno scarves

SuTurno scarvesSuTurno scarvesSuTurno scarvesSuTurno scarvesYes, more scarves.

Keeping on with the scarf and kerchief obsession over here, I thought I’d share a brand devoted to scarves. Madrid based SuTurno makes some undeniably beautiful surrealist and geometric printed silk scarves in the most stunning colour palettes. Even if you have no interest in owning a scarf, especially one that’s this expensive, you can see the artistic merit of these pieces – like works of art you can wear. Aside from the scarves themselves, how cool are their look books? Their images are just as visually stunning as their scarves and compliment each other to perfection. They are the kind of images you look at and think, I wish I thought of that.

What do you guys think? Loving it? Do you know any other brands that make notable scarves?
