Sunday Society

(images via

in the middle of a wardrobe cleanse/detox and its really making me question the core pieces of my wardrobe, all those pieces that i love the IDEA of wearing, but in the end stick to what i feel good in/falls out of my wardrobe first. i know im not the only one who does it either!

the latest images from Urban Outfitters collective Sunday Society, are giving the well needed nudge of inspiration to strip my wardrobe back to being more about the clean lines and simple colour stories.

late night Sunday vibes...

1. first image via
2. suede jacket - Toast, metal clutch - Anya Hindmarsh, tee - Calvin Klein x Mytheresa, lace shorts - Miss Crofton, perfume - Bella Freud, tabi boots - Masion Martin Margiela.

slightly obsessing over how perfect the chokers by Celine are and wishing all the above things were in possession right now. i did treat myself to the new fragrance by Bella Freud this week (cant stop smelling myself as a result!) and those lacy shorts were definitely ordered during a recent sleepless night.

 i keep finding myself when im tired and out and about buying plants, like everywhere i go! i do the same thing with pretty underwear. my favourite thing to do when im tired and have the duvet pulled over my head and i can barely keep both eyes open - is to browse Etsy for allllll the sheer and pretty lacy underwear i can find. Miss Crofton is a firm favourite as all her pieces are made in London which is a nice touch.

im starting to realise im literally gonna end up sitting in my flat one day, totally broke, surrounded by plants, but smelling rather lovely and wearing nice underwear....

girl crush of the day...

"Another thing that I found interesting about growing my hair on my body is that it almost desexualized me in some ways. So I have hairy armpits, but will wear short dresses—I like daring people to think differently. I want to be able to be like, ‘I’m hot and I’m in control of my body.’"

the young artist Petra Collins on growing her body hair and rejecting the razor. a fantastic interview on Into The Gloss with such a wise 21 year old who also happens to be a very talented photographer. i wish i'd been this sure of myself at that age!

toast august '14

(all images via

maybe its this rubbish weather and constant grey skies, but i have a hankering to drape myself in various shades of grey with sharp tones of gold and white. something very clean and fluid about those colours together. and dont even get me started on those brows and that hair!

perfect tee's and perfect styling in these pictures taken by Viktor Vauthier for the new brand Bianca Chandon. i have my eye on the 'Lover' tee but considering i have purchased 3 tees in the last month alone i probably should slow down on that front!

recently .18

1. cant stop wearing my Isabel Marant Etoile sweater these days, no one warned me that sweaters were so damn comfy?!it's immediately become my best friend while traveling.
2. getting photos developed from the end of last year and being really happy with how the Amsterdam ones turned out.
3. stomping about in my beautiful new manly brogues c/o of Office, the chunky sole is my favourite bit.
4. catching up with Mel with a perfect breakfast feast at the Toast x Cereal event, the perfect combination of beautiful clothing, my favourite food/travel/lifestyle magazine and my girl ;)
5. adding to my collection on my arm with a stringed pearl picked up in Berlin last week and a simple and oh so elegant bangle from Celine, the coolest and most favourite friendship bracelet i will probably ever own!

escaping the wind and rain of England...

a surprise week off work was a double edged sword when i realised that i would most likely end up holed up in my flat watching London slowly flood. a look at the weather reports in Europe and i saw a quick opportunity to explore the south coast of France spending a few days in Nice and Monaco. if not for the lovely people i recommend visiting for the cheap wine (heeello 1 Euro bottles of red!) and insane good food.

how i'd like to be dressed right now...

replace the wedges with some battered old tan Church's brogues and you've got my dream outfit for the spring! already got my eye on the perfect distressed levis from Goodhood, finding a beautiful jacket like the one above seems a little harder though.

goodbye 2013//hello new year...

- my favourite view over Mitte in Berlin and the happiest moment during one of my several  trips there - being tattooed in Budapest on a trip with my good friends, getting to be one of the 'lads' again - train ride through the Polish countryside with my American friend - my first few weeks in New York and that morning we watched the sunrise on Coney Island - a lazy weekend away to Bruges and spending the last night listening to local gypsies play in a 'vampire's' old Masonic home - my only trip back to Ireland not for unhappy reasons last year involved hanging out at empty beaches with my mother and dog and road trips down the coast with my parents - another few weeks during the summer spent in New York saw nightly rooftop drinking, road trips to Philly and eating far too much good food - the last trip to Berlin waking up in a new friends magical looking cottage in the middle of Kreuzburg -

never one for paying much attention to 'new years' and all the resolutions and 'new year, new me' attitude that comes with it, but boy was it a year to remember in 2013.

it was the year of super highs and super tough lows, never seen such a unbalanced year!setting up my new diary its easy to focus on all the bad last year, all the goodbyes i said, but instead i am trying to focus on all my favourite bits, some of them above.

so lets hope 2014 will bring lots more good bits, less goodbyes and more hellos!

i hope you all have something to look forward to and all had some wonderful times over the holiday season, happy new year guys!
