PRETTY SUMMER COLOURS

I love the pretty pink and blue colors used in this beautiful holiday home on the Spanish island of Formentera (you can see this home here). It inspired me to do this pink & blue post! Above: Lovebird Half Moon gown by Spell.

SHOPPING FOR STYLISH BASICS

everlane1

My go-to shop for basic items is Everlane as I love their basic elegant and casual fashion. Their style is a cross between Scandinavian simplicity and French chic. The quality of their clothing is good (they work with the best factories around the world) yet their designs are affordable (as they do not work with resellers). My Everlane favorites that I own are the cotton U neck tee (very soft), the City Anorak (simple but very stylish) and the Stretch Ponte Skinny pants (the perfect black skinny pants). On my wishlist is this beautiful off-white sweater. Everlane only ships within the US and to Canada and Australia but I use a forwarding shipping service (Shipito).

These beautiful images are shot by Alice Mahran for Seed Heritage. I love the location, which is The Plantroom in Manly (Sydney, Australia), and the props that are used. The beautiful painting is from Jordana Henry and the rug from Pampa. The furniture pieces are from JD Lee Furniture.

THE FASHION FILES: STYLISH SNOW & WINTER GEAR

snowgear12

We are taking a family trip to Lapland in Finland later this month. This destination has been on my wish list for a long time and now our son is six I think he is old enough to be enjoying a trip like this. We will be doing lots of activities such as husky and reindeer sledge tour. And we are hoping to get to see the Northern lights. It can be extremely cold in Finland (last week it was -40 °C (-40 F) so we need to get appropriate winter gear. In cold conditions you should wear layers to beat the cold: thermal clothing as a base layer (preferably made of merino wool), then a fleece jacket and then a water and winter proof jacket & ski pants. As I was browsing the web for good snow & winter gear I decided to create a post about this topic.
