The T-shirt edit

Before Summer ends, and here in Germany it’s supposed to end today, we wanted to dedicate a post to our T-shirts.  One would think that as years go by our wardrobes would change into sophisticated collections of suits, heels and pencil skirts. But nope, we still go crazy for a nice, comfortable, soft T-shirt. There’s something about the comfort, the effortless look and the cuteness of a T-shirt that made us wear them again and again. You can say they are a staple in our wardrobe together with blue shirts and jeans. We usually pair them with blazers for an upgraded T-shirt look and this Summer I’ve been wearing tees with long or midi skirts on repeat. That combo has made me feel a little cool, even more when combined with sneakers. Anyone else stalking Jeanne Damas’ Instagram this Summer?  Well, wearing cute T-shirts + flower printed skirts has been my way of recreating some of her looks. The constant rain has made espadrilles impossible, but white sneakers were a nice substitute. At least in …

Summer capsule wardrobe

Even though the weather has made an awkward turn towards Autumn, today we are dedicating a few lines to the difficult science of Summer capsule-wardrobing… hoping that there will be more sunny days ahead. If you read our last piece about conscious shopping, you know that I’m trying to reduce my purchases and create an edited wardrobe. I’m planning to write an update in a few months but June has been difficult, the sales and our recent trip to London made my policy went up in smoke, but I’m determined to behave myself again! Anyway, today we bring you my better half’s Summer capsule wardrobe, which as you can see in the pictures is quite cohesive, monochrome and simple. That is, what capsule wardrobes are meant to be. Two tees, two dresses, two shorts, one jacket and one jumsuit. Stripes, blue and denim mixed with neutral shades and natural textures. One bag and a pair of comfortable espadrilles. Do you need anything more for a few relaxing days in Ibiza? Yes, a couple of bikinis, …

The overall

During the last couple of years we’ve been seeing overalls everywhere. It started as a shy trend that only fashion victims would wear without looking like toddlers. We saw it in action during Paris Fashion Week 2013 for the first time (look at the fourth picture in this post) but now we can see beautiful, flattering overalls basically in every high street store. So the trend, once again, has become popular among all of us and no Spring/Summer wardrobe seems to be completed without an overall. That’s why we have put together some ideas, so that you can choose the perfect overall for you.

Mango

You know that we are longing for Autumn… but how can we not when we see images like these? Don’t you want to wrap yourself in a comfy cardigan, feel the cold in your rosy cheeks and enjoy a hot strong cup of coffe? I personally can’t wait. The new Mango lookbook is so inviting… it simply makes you want to buy everything and live in an eternal Autumn.

Grey

Grey is P.’s favourite colour so she’s super happy that it is so fashionable this season. Grey can be combined with lots of colours but she specially loves mixing it with navy, chocolate and, obviously, black. This season, however, it seems mandatory to pair the softest shades of grey with pastels. Well, I don’t think that is going to happen. P’s wardrobe has an interesting lack of soft colours. Well, colours in general. Maybe a touch of green and mustard, but that’s all. Anyway… grey combines perfectly with those too! 1. The basic. A fantastic cashmere sweater. This is the kind of piece you should invest some money on. 2. This lovely dress from Sandro will be a great adition to anyone’s wardrobe. You can dress it up with pumps and a pretty coat, or dress it down with flats and a biker jacket. 3. If I could, I would buy this hat. This perfect fedora will make every outfit look like a million dollar. 4. This oversize coat by Isabel Marant x H&M is …
