Don't Grow Up, It's a Trap

Outfits

I still remember when I was around six and my friend Caroline and I were clad in nothing but white cotton underwear, covered in mud stains with a crown of leaves adorning our bowl-cuts. I had just read Robinson Crusoe while lounging in the apple tree in our backyard (it added dramatic effect to the already terrifying story). After eating almost 15 apples (this is a true story) and subsequently suffering from unsurprising stomach cramps, I decided to make it my mission to relive what is still one of my favourite novels in my parents' garden. The thick bushes seemed to be a suitable alternative to the "Island of Despair". My obsessions with pirates, tree climbing and apples only intensified that magical summer.

Onesies are the BabyGro for adults that are either flying off to Never Never Land in the depths of the night or are, like myself, refusing to fall into the trap of monotony called growing up. Sophia Webster's whimsical creations à la Alice in Wonderland's "drink me" potion only enhance that certain "child at heart" aspect. Purchasing one of her clutches was like jumping into one of McDonald's' ball pits, ie. the happiest moment of my life. Since toddlers aren't able to walk, sitting on various pavements in my giant BabyGro only seemed appropriate, armed with a lot of pictorial vitamin C thanks to the pineapples on my jumper.

I am wearing an Asos Marketplace jumper, an Urban Outfitters onesie, Isabel Marant Betty sneakers and a Sophia Webster clutch.

Conversation Starter

The most conversation-starter-friendly cap known to man and the perfect item to run around New York City with. No need to talk, just let your clothes do that for you. I'm now in Boston until Saturday visiting my sister and will be eating buttermilk pancakes in around 5 minutes. I'll leave you with my last impressions of the big bad apple, fully in bloom.

I am wearing a customised vintage Wrangler denim jacket, a Tribe Called Quest jumper, Current/Elliot jeans, Chloé boots, a Givenchy bag and a cap from the Hat Shop in Soho.

 

Reigning Supreme in NYC

I'm in NYC right now visiting my family and my mind is still adjusting to the fact that there is an insane amount of skyscrapers and crazy taxi drivers. Tomorrow I'm already Boston bound to see my sister for five days. I've been stocking up on jerseys and caps and reigning supreme on Wooster Street. Gotta keep it short and sweet because I'm off to China Town now to enjoy my last night!

I am wearing a Supreme cap, a blouson from Urban Outfitters and top from Miharayasuhiro, leather trackies from Mango and boots from Balenciaga.

Last Days of Summer

I love the buildings near our apartment even if you have to go there only for irritating, beaurocratic appointments. Lying in that patch of tall grass made me forget where I was for a few minutes. I wore this outfit with a blazer and brogues to work and later changed into my new Isabel Marant Boston trainers that were waiting for me at home to go for a walk with Alasdair and Hamish. I need to do an outfit post of how I would style this romper for three different occasions because it is extremely versatile. I have already worn it to work, to a club and to sleep, well almost to sleep. The civil servants working in this building complex looked very puzzled when I was doing whatever it was attempting to pose.

I am wearing a Winter Kate kimono, an Urban Outfitters romper, Isabel Marant trainers and an Alexander Wang clutch
