Dear World, do you love the resort collections? I do. They’re a peek into the future and a heads up on what to start wearing now. Yah, it’s elitist and confusing but it’s also grounded and totally aspirational. Why wear what’s in the magazines now when you can start dressing like resort 13? The thing that’s standing out most to me from the presentations are the proportions. Clever layering is being used to create a new silhouette. I like it, a lot.
I also like the colour palette. It’s earthy and taupe. Taupe. That’s right. Let your clothes be taupe – give your personality the chance to be colorful.
Above you’ll find some of my favorite looks from some of my favorite designers. I loved the little cliche plastic bag at 10 Crosby and the magenta dress worn over a white shirt with sandals at Elizabeth & James. There are so many good looks. My favourites are the ones that feel a little awkward but are beautiful for their strangeness. There’s a traveling foreign vibe trickling into the collections which I love. Personally I’ve always felt a bit like a global gypsy… just give me some gold hoops and a silk scarf to tie on my head and I’ll read your fortune. Seriously.
Hope you love the resort collections as much as I do. Sending my love to you always and forever. xx

How did you get to be so good at wearing multiple textures and prints? Can we please schedule a lesson in layering? You looked so good this day that I wanted to stroke your body… but thought this might be a tad inappropriate? Just want you to know that I love you, a little. xx
p.s. if anyone out there is interested in less delusional (I got zero minutes of sleep last night) posts then head over to We Heart. I just posted what I think might be the most achingly beautiful photos I’ve ever taken (from the Inbar Spector show).
Graduations are a funny thing. In England they tend to take place months after you’ve actually finished studying and, as of late, attempt to ease you into an economic climate wherein your newly gained academic qualifications fail to secure you a job. Regardless, they’re an excuse to get a new dress and soak up the glory of your hard earned achievements. Ah, which I both did with immense pleasure. Today I rather shakily took to the stage to collect my degree and then roamed around Covent Garden and Knightsbridge. The shakes were due to my unsteady shoes but thankfully I managed to avoid toppling forward. The LSE school motto translates ‘to know the causes of things’. Whatever great philosophical perspective I might have gained from my year there, one thing still escapes me: why I insist on repeatedly buying shoes I can barely walk in.
Wearing: Cos dress, Hue tights, Zara shoes, and Mulberry for Target bag. Thanks to the one-handed-photographer for these shots.
p.s. have put some slightly geeky photos of me dressed up in my graduation gear over on my Facebook group.
