channeling europe

embracing the foreign that I call home now

Since moving to the UK, specifically London, with it’s diverse community primarily
made up of Europeans, I found myself lost in my personal style. Before moving out
here, I purged and donated most of my clothes only having a few basics and many,
many business formal clothes. I needed to start my closet new and I knew I wanted
to invest in pieces and focus on classics. My style was refining, but clearly
stepping foot on the concrete catwalk that is London, I found myself a bit estranged
from the sartorial world.

I knew it was time to refine and perfect the closet. Spending a tad more, but
on a bit less. And what I fell in love with was the neutral color palette, the
dainty silhouettes, the quasi careless type look that I saw most of London draped
in. I want pieces that can take me from Sunday brunch to weekend meetings and
evening drinks. And so, the perfect blazer against a blanket silk scarf, is a look
that I have coveted for my first true European look…

  • LOVE X’s 100!

  • I love this look, and this scarf is just beautiful. It’s hard to refine your style when you move to a place like London – everyone looks so fashionable, so trendy, so chic. But it’s also exciting to observe the street style, the fashion world, and deciding what you want your style and wardrobe to look like. And as you say, investing in fewer clothes but of better quality is the best idea ever. I’ve started doing it myself! x

    • You’re so right, it’s easier to get lost than to find your sartorial calling haha! I’m liking the idea of a few things in the closet as that’s all will fit in my closet! x

  • You look gorgeous, love your style and am really digging your coat.

    Sometimes you don't have to know someone in person, but even from a blog, you can really tell who has a beautiful, warm soul!

    • Ah thank you so much, Diana! I try to go for chic and cozy, so hard though when it’s freezing out. Thank you for the sweet, sweet words 🙂 x

  • Love this look; very sophisticated!

  • I think its definitely worth investing in classic timeless pieces that you can wear over and over and never go out of style. Love the outfit you came up with today, the mix of prints feels so “NOW” and at the same time, each element of this outfit is timeless. Good job!

    • Yeah, I hate the idea of spending SO much on clothes. I rather invest in one piece and continue to wear it through the years. Thank you!! x
