Casual Friday; Patchwork Denim

patchworkstreet

For women over 35, a skinny jeans is most flattering, but we wouldn’t say no to a cool boyfriend jeans on casual days off. So why not make your own patchwork denim as seen at Junya Watanabe? The DIY procedure is simple; take some cool fabrics and old denim and sew them on an old pair of jeans. If you’re not the crafty kind of woman, Isabel Marant Etoile and Hope STHLM also stock cool ones in their Fall 15 collections.

Hello Summer; 12 Piece Travel Packing List

12packinglist

I’ve been using the Travel Fashion Girl packing lists all the times when packing for my adventures and whether I escaped for either one week or three months, trust me 12 wardrobe pieces is really all you need on vacation.

The magic formula?
6 tops + 4 bottoms + 2 dresses = the perfect 12 piece packing list

1 According to your style, destination and plans you can choose what individual pieces to pack as long as you stick to the total of 12. For example, you can bring 2 more dresses but then you have to leave 1 top and 1 bottom.
2 Stick to one color scheme like black, white and (denim) blue, so everything mixes and matches. But if you’re depending on backpacker’s washers, I’ve learned the hard way that bringing whites or delicates is not a good idea.
3 Outer- under- and sportswear doesn’t count, which doesn’t mean bringing five extra shorts ofcourse.
4 Shoes are down to two pairs, three if you include a pair of going out heels. But lets be realistic here, if you’re having a beach getaway, you will never ever wear that killer heel, same goes for cobblestone streets in let’s say Barcelona. The only killing part is your feet hurting, so bring a chic leather flat sandal instead.

Thanks to my fave Aussie bloggers Kaitlyn and Sara, I’ve put together an inspirational 12 piece travel wardrobe of dresses, shorts and shirts which I would love to bring on my travels. What 12 pieces are on your packing list?

Hello Summer, ByeBye Hipster Beards

men1

This may come as a shock to you, but it’s time to ditch those Viking beards and Magnum moustaches guys. According to the Guardian “hipster” beards are over and I couldn’t agree more. So go to your barber and get a shave, you’re not Roald Dahl’s Mr. Twit. On the fashion part, you can keep your fixed gear bike, your florals, your skinnies, your denim jacket, your Ray Ban, your slimfit shirts and your Vans. And as I love tattoos, inked sleeves are always a good idea.
