Blue Peonies

Photos by Vanessa Jackman

Shoes Manolo Blahnik, Jeans Jbrand, Belt Hermes, Shirt Topshop, Watch Michael Kors and Head Scarf Hermes.

A few seasons ago I wore this to LFW and Vanessa took my picture. 
I love white jeans in the summer and in London sometimes white jeans are as close as we get to wearing shorts.
I have an absolute obsession with finding white jeans that are thick enough that you can't see the pockets.  I think Jbrand, MiH and Zara are the best.

Running through grass

Dress Temperley London and Jacket by Hanalie at Eriin.

Some of you who follow me on twitter may have heard me complaining about how hard it was to get these running shots. I always love the idea of a dress running, the movement, the drama.  However doing it in real life was completely different, turns out I can hard walk and look ok, let alone run!
Still I hope you will like the very few I managed.

I got this dress at a Temperley Sample Sale with Candice Lake, it really is the most beautiful colour. You can still get it HERE!

Da Nang Part I.

Slippers from Vietnam, Shorts The Gap, Shirt Zara, and Bag Hermes.

Vietnam is such a beautiful country. I highly recommend that you try and arrange a trip. 
everything is delicate and beautiful there. These pictures are from my recent trip to Asia. (see other posts HereHereHere, Here, Here and Here)
I had really bad jetlag while I was there so I woke up super early and walked down the beach everyday while only the fishermen were there.  I know the summer holidays are coming up for everyone, so I hope this travel inspiration will cheer up your Monday morning blues.

Red Varsity

Shoes and Jeans Zara, Jacket vintage from Paris, Bag from Vietnam, T-shirt The Clash from Topshop, Sunglasses borrowed from Pete Navey.

I feel like wearing white jeans in the country is like asking for a dog to come and jump up all other you with muddy paws.  But sometimes thats half the fun.
On a glorious english summer day, white jeans just feel like the perfect thing to wear.
This is my take on the varsity-girlfriend-look.  Everything looks like you could have borrowed it from your school boyfriend. Super comfortable and fun.
Happy weekending!

The Red Lip

This is the last of the beauty tutorials I made with Because and Kay Montano.
This one is focused around the red lip.
I really think if you want your red lipstick to stay in place you need to use a pencil first. Over oily lips with too much balm on them make the lipstick slide off.  I think there's also a lot to be said for choosing lipsticks that aren't over oiling.  I like Nars, Chanel and Tom Ford.
