It’s no secret that I’m a pretty huge fan of ASOS. I’ve spent many an evening sipping red wine, binge watching First Dates and scrolling through 100 pages of dresses, jumpsuits and swimwear. I’ll click the ones I like until I have 45 tabs open and I eventually have to restart Firefox. Then I’ll go through my edit, choose the best of the bunch and add them to my cart.
1. Oh my god, this is so exciting.
2. So many promo emails. Black Friday is like Christmas morning, but better.
3. I’m feeling all the feels.
Okay, so I realise I’ve been going on a bit about my recent trip to Copenhagen. But from the delicious food to our stylish hotel, there was a lot to love. And to finish it off, I thought I’d share a very brief account of how I fell in love with a new clothing store: Moss Copenhagen.
Truth time: I have a lot of clothes that I never wear. Either they don’t quite fit right or I don’t have the pieces to pair them with… or they just kind of blah. So I got kind of weirdly excited when I resuscitated this skirt last weekend…
For the past several years I’ve been exclusively wearing some version of cropped trousers. (That is, when I’m not wearing a skirt, dress or shorts. Or a bathing suit. Or workout gear. Whatever, you know what I mean.) With the exception of one pair of uber-cute flared jeans from Gap, the whole issue of buying trousers by length is one that I’ve happily ignored.
One of my favourite ways to make an outfit look cool and non-boring is by mixing prints. For me, deciding which prints work together is really just about trial and error – and to get it right, you have to start with the individual pieces.
As much fun as it is to share my own daily attempts at awesomeness, it’s even more fun to analyse other stylish ladies and admire their genius outfit creations. Today’s street style addition to the Lovely List comes from the one city I love almost as much as London town: New York City.
For this chill Sunday, I decided I needed a laid-back, simple look to take me from coffee to shopping to PBRs and more. I bought these relaxed boyfriend jeans from H&M years ago and I just recently decided to distress them DIY style. I let loose with a pair of scissors and a razor (and I think maybe a cheese grater… the details are a bit fuzzy) – and this is what I came up with.
