KONZUK's stellar collection is made from stainless steel and concrete that is sprinkled with diamond dust. This unlikely pairing references the night sky - bright stars scattered across an infinite black. It's impossible to wear the jewelry without feeling somewhat grounded. The symmetry lends a degree of balance that life with a 3 month old, or perhaps anyone's life, can benefit from.
It's really easy to get down on a city like St Louis. It's not a place you often hear people talking about - at least not in a positive way. It doesn't stand out as a cultural highlight or rank highly on the list of most people's travel list. That adds to it's charm - it requires its visitors to work a little.
I'm a sucker for a trend just like the next fashion blogger but I like my go-to staples more. They are the building blocks that your whole wardrobe is based on. If you don't have the basics down then your foundations aren't solid. Something that might first appear ordinary can actually be the most inspiring.
Much to my dismay, the transition towards autumn has undeniably begun. The temperature is starting to feel a bit cooler and as a result I've had to swap my slinky tank tops for chunkier knits. I would complain but the transition means I get to wear this furry lime green jumper and I'm pretty sure that can only be a good thing.
Lately I've taken to tying my hair up in silk scarves. There's something decidedly retro about it, plus it's the easiest way to add a dash of something bright to an otherwise colorless look. I've also taken to this bubblegum pink bomber jacket.
The last few days the weather has been hovering right around 40 degrees. This has led to a mass migration in Zurich to the river. Just about everyone in town is lying out on the planks in their swimsuits soaking up the sunshine (thong bikini bottoms seem to be all the rage this year much to my dislike - don't worry I'm not partaking in the trend).
Lately, I've been wearing slight variations of this outfit pretty much everyday. Depending on the weather (it's rubbish at the moment), I might throw on a jumper but otherwise this is my standard uniform. Skinny jeans, slouchy t-shirt, leather jacket, backpack and my Birkenstocks.
One day we have hail and the next it's 26 degrees and sunny. I'm not complaining though. When there are clear skies it feels like summer has well and truly descended and that makes me a very happy girl indeed. I had my legs out for the first time this year at the weekend for a brunch date. Can you hear my squealing from excitement?
I’m the worst person in the world when it comes to organization. I tend to throw all my important documents into a little bag, which then gets thrown into another bag... which then gets thrown into another bag... which then ends up lost amongst the million bags I carry. But I’m determined to organize my life and get my documents under control.
For some strange reason, the other day, instead of putting my black Zara skirt on around my bottom I pulled it up to my chest. Ooo, I stared into the mirror and did a little twirl. It flared out with quite a cute little shape. Voila. I had just gained, without spending any money, a brand new top.
Lately I've been gravitating towards all black outfits. Maybe it's the gradual transition out of summer? Anyway, I threw in a bit of contrast with this nude pink leather jacket and a leopard print clutch. This is my version of transitional dressing.
With the weather turning slightly more chilly I've started pulling out the thick knits. I love this yellow fluffy jumper by Acne. The only problem? It sheds fluorescent fuzz onto everything and everyone that makes contact with it. I still love it though.
Do you remember the Topshop Unique show? It was awesome. I've been obsessed with it ever since February. As you know, I'm trying to invest in quality functional wardrobe pieces. Like most people I (sadly) don't have a bottomless budget. I like shopping from high street stores when I can find good pieces.
Brown leather. White linen cropped top. Bell bottom jeans. If you asked me a month ago, I'd laugh in \ at the mere mention of these items. Surely they are outdated and totally uncool. Well, wide legs have started creeping into my life. It's scary but I'm having the desire to swap out my skinnies for trousers with a looser fit. Uh-oh.
Last week I got to spend the day with my love Charlie May in East London. We rode Boris Bikes, which I thought would be horrifying, but actually were so much fun. If you're in London get your booty onto one. You'll be glad you did.
Completely obsessed with this simple slouchy silk dress. Love the oversized arm holes and elongated back. Thank god I put on a pair of shorts underneath - the wind was acting like a nasty mother. Marilyn Monroe might be chic but no one needs to see my (heart print) pants.
Although leather baseball hats are currently all the rage, I'd just like to say that are actually really stupid. If it's hot the last thing you want to wear is a black freaking leather hat... when I stood in the sun my head was boiling. England, this trend was made for you.
'Varsity jackets are so in right now, don't you know? Hello, everyone from Alexander Wang to Proenza Schouler has shown them. Sure, they might be all over the high street but those knockoffs ain't got nothing on this little vintage one.' Err, just kidding.
Last night I returned home from a weekend spent in the Cotswolds. Without internet I felt refreshingly disconnected from the world despite being just a couple hours away from London. Being back in Zurich though feels equally peaceful. The pace of life here is so relaxed that it's hard not to feel as though you're on a permanent weekend away.
Currently, I'm sitting at the gate waiting on a flight back home to Zurich. I've just spent the last two days working on a new project in Stockholm. There's a memory card in my bag stuffed full of photos that I can't wait to show you.
Spending a week in London with LA photographer Laurel Dailey was absolute bliss. We met last year on a little project for Quiksilver and she kindly made the trip back out to the UK to shoot my friend's wedding. We discovered this little gem of a street, called Keystone Crescent, thanks to a midnight stroll with our wonderful host Leo from the Rough Luxe.
Waking up to a massive cupcake in New York with nothing to do all day... that's my idea of absolute bliss. I'm currently hanging out with my family and waiting on my sister to have a baby! Fingers crossed it will be here by the end of the weekend.
Scavenged through the backstreets behind Oxford Street last week in London looking for pretty places to take photos. Let me tell you, it's slim pickings. Loved dodging oncoming traffic and scary men dressed in black that crept up behind me... were they heading for my bags of sale goodies or the pub across the street? Never mind that.
For some unknown reason I'm craving all sorts of things that remind me of being a kid... like pony tails and little girly sandals with straps that go around the ankle. I've taken on a newly formed liking to pink and hearts. I'm not sure why this is happening.
