Walk with it, read it, wear it, sleep with it, let it inspire you. Sometimes a touch of colour is OK too. These are all the reasons I love monochrome and how I’ve worked my obsession for all things black and white into my daily life – from my favourite faux fur heels in their minimal white box to the words on my wall that inspire me the most.

Jacket/Blouse/Jeans/Bag c/o: JOOP!
Since we are always one season ahead in fashion, I figured it’s only appropriate to bring out a fall-inspired look for the blog… even if the temperatures are the complete opposite. Today I’m showing you an exclusive preview of JOOP!’s FW 2014 line, it’s classic, chic and embodies that perfect minimal look that I tend to favour. As soon as I thew on this jacket, it had me wishing for cooler temperatures…okay, maybe not wishing but I won’t be shedding any tears when Fall comes our way. This gorgeous grey bag is the perfect finish to this outfit and the best thing is, I could hold my entire life in it. If you are anything like me, that’s an incredible high priority.

Feeling incredibly happy after a wonderful weekend celebrating one of my best friend’s 25th birthday! It was quite amazing to have my girlfriends who I lived with at university all under one roof again. I remember the days where we used to sit around our kitchen table planning our European dreams and making a promise that we would all be in Europe at some point together. Not in my craziest dreams did I think it would all happen so soon and that one would live around the corner form me and the other would be only an hour and a half flight away in London. Clearly we are the type of girls who know what we want and are serious with our kitchen table dreams. The weekend included lots of great food, drinks and dancing. I wore my new striped blazer that I scored on sale with my go-to denim shorts and added a pop of cobalt blue with this 3.1 Phillip Lim bag from Monnier Frères, I’m completely obsessed with the colour! It’s an easy summer look that can take you from day to night by just adding a heel.

Here are the last pictures of my trip to Vichy. I had the pleasure of meandering the quaint streets of this stunning French town, which felt like I had stepped back in time in a classic French movie. It’s the simple things about a new city that always inspire me; the street signs, the balconies, the colour of the buildings.

I love finding products that work well with my body. I was quite pleased when I discovered Byron Body tea, a 100% naturally organic teatox packed with fresh flavour and natural benefits. Before some of my travels, I like to work out even more than my regular schedule and try to eat as healthy as possible because there is usually too much delicious food, desserts and wine that is hard to pass up on a blogging trip with girls! I’ve been drinking Byron Body tea three times a day, 30 minutes prior to each meal and I definitely notice the difference; the African mango in it helps suppress my appetite and bloating while also helping to maintain muscle. Not too bad for tea, right? Of course eating well goes hand and hand with this, it’s just a little something extra to help you feel even better about your body! You can buy and find all about the tea here.
