Barefoot attitude

Chloé Resort 2014 yellow trench coatOkey, I just love this look above from the Chloé Resort 2014 line, is absolutely amazing! As I mentioned before, yellow is the color for Spring 2014. The entire collection is beautiful, I have got tons of looks on my mind for the spring – like the pin striped denim trench coat paired with the denim boyfriend jeans, the ankle long striped skirt styled with a simple white shirt, and the wide trousers (!) both in white and navy paired with flats. Oh, my the flats are gorgeous, especially the slippers… The creative director for Chloé, Clare Waight Keller, stated that the trousers in this collection gives you room for her “barefoot attitude” – a statement I totally fell for. Waight Keller wanted the proportions to be just right, and sandals, as well as slippers, feels super hot to pair to both a chill and more dressed-up looks for just that perfect relaxed proportions.

My favorite looks

The Row Resort 2014-9

I just had to post my favorite looks from The Row Resort 2014 collection, which are quite a few. As you know by now, I am a huge fan of theirs (and their personal styles as well). As always The Row delivers. I love the hues and the colors, canvas-beigen, olive green, navy, light grey, and the up and coming color (that not only The Row showed, but also Stella McCartney and Louis Vuitton) — light yellow. For this Resort line, Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen said they were looking at uniforms — of sailors, of Japanese workers, of school children — for ideas this season. The thing about the Olsen twins is that they have this amazing eye for fabrics. They make pieces out of the best of the best materials and combine these in beautiful set-ups, like satin and denim, cashmere and canvas. As we can see they stay put to what they love and believe in. For an example they have always highlighted the flats, ever since The Row’s very beginning. And of course, it is implemented in this collection, as well as the semi-long and ankle-long skirts. Well, it is true love as always.

Elizabeth & James

Elisabeth & James Resort 2014The Olsen twin’s more price friendly line (comparing to The Row…), Elizabeth & James just showed their Resort 2014 collection. Oh yes, the resort lines have been dropping in one after another the latest couple of days. I love the resort lines, they are quite small but often highlights the most important trends for the coming season. In this collection I just loved the combination of styling denim with denim, the flat sandals, the skirts in knee-lenght and of course the headband (!). Love it, and I am so going to start using the ones I’ve got.

From the archive

Michael Kors Spring 2012 sandal

So I was going through my archive of pictures, inspirational editorials, previous snapshots from last season’s runway etc., and I always end up with so much stuff on my mind. Like I spotted this snapshot above, from the Michael Kors SS12 collection, a simple leather sandals that is just super cool – a pair I wouldn’t mind at all get my hands on today. Unfortunately something that can be a bit tricky since it’s last year collection. But I did put together some nice styles that are available today from this season! From the top: Marni buckle strap leather sandal, Saint Laurent Paris ‘Woodstock’ flats sandal with golden details, Marni black leather sandal and ‘Alethea’ sandal from Greek Ancient Sandals.

Tibi sandals

Tibi Declan flat sandals

I am hooked on sandals for the moment and it feels like I am constantly looking for that perfect pair (even if I know I need several more to survive the summer). This pair from Tibi are a good candidate. I am really fond of the all black look – even the buckle detail is black – as well as the between-the-toe strap. I found them here!

Vogue UK January 2013 Doutezen Kroes by Josh Olins-2This editorial with Doutzen Kroes in Vogue UK Januray 2013, photgraphed by Josh Olins, gives me major cravings for a long vaccation somewhere warm. I wouldn’t mind strolling down a beach in metallic silver shorts, bikins and flat sandals. I think that would be my number one gift on the wish list for this year. Anyway, a little to late to think about that now. But at the meanwhile, enjoy these beautiful and inspiring pictures instead.
