Confession time, I have no idea how to dress for summer. That’s suuuuper embarrassing for a desert rat to admit seeing as warm weather occupies 90% of Arizona’s climate. But after moving to a cold city like London, I realized how much I love tights, coats and scarves. In fact I still found myself reaching for pants and sweaters these last few mornings. In fact, as summer weather approaches, I’ve started venturing to my roommates’ closets for outfit inspiration. You can thank Makenna for this beautiful gypsy gown. It’s flowy fit was the perfect way to wander through London’s Spanish Food Festival. I’m in love, and may never give it back.

I’ve always had a thing for suspenders (especially on guys), but was never sure how to pull them off. Ever since I picked this skirt up from H&M, I haven’t been able to take it off. I love dressing it up with heels, moto books, even just knee high socks and a pair of comverse.  Plus I couldn’t pass up the chance to play Dutch in the Keukenhof Tulip Gardens!

Sweatshirts and I have never really gotten along. They’re so comfortable to wear, but I always feel like a giant blob whenever I throw one on. Perhaps it’s my inner Arizonan acting completely dumbfounded that they could actually be fashionable! But I found experimenting with proportions and shape was the key to offsetting the boxy look of such a big shirt.

Spring is in the air! Though the weather can’t seem to make up its mind over here, we’re starting to see warmer days. After months heavy of coats and layers it felt nice to throw on a breezy maxi outfit for a change . It made for a perfect day of lounging and twirling in the park with friends.

Meet Kirby, my go-to fashion buff here over the pond. Her outfits are always carefully crafted to elicit her carefree demeanour in most stylish way. I finally remembered my camera on Saturday so I could capture yet another one of her breezy looks. On a side note, this lady has the nicest ankles you’ve ever seen. They’ll blow your mind.

She’s  one of those lucky people who can pull of any look and make a sweatshirt and denim jacket combo look like a million bucks. Today’s ensemble was no exception, and I couldn’t pass up the chance to feature such a beautiful damask piece.

The Casual Tee

I’ve never considered myself a T shirt and jeans kind of girl, but I’ve still yearned for a way to pull off the look tastefully. Offsetting a basic graphic shirt with some leather pants and structured hat did just the trick. Plus a pair of dark lips are always a safe bet for me.
