New DenimFebruary 27
Denim has a new smart looks this season - forget the regular skinny jeans and the washed denim jacket. Wear classic blue styles, but go for a new fit like the relaxed shirt dress from A.P.C., the MIH kimono jacket or the cut-out playsuit by Stella McCartney. The best high street piece? The belted waist Monki jacket with frayed edges. Happy shopping.
Miracle CushionFebruary 26
Last week I went to the press event for the new Lancôme Miracle Cushion and I’m super excited about the new compact. Cushion foundations have been around in Korea for a while now and I’m currently obsessing about Korean beauty trends. They seem to always be a few steps ahead. The sponge is soaking wet with foundation yet never leaks or spills - very clever. The texture is light, it’s easy to apply and easy to bring everywhere -the liquid cushion compact gives you a fresh and dewy glow. Apply by pressing the sponge into the liquid cushion and pat onto the face. For more coverage simply add more layers. With SPF 23, skin is protected too. If you are into easy makeup and lightweight textures you should give the Lancôme Miracle Cushion a go - shop it here.
Midnight February 24
Navy obsession much? Really have taken this colour in the last few months. Latest buy is the trousers from Weekday and combined with my Céline knit, that you can see better here, and my amazing boyish coat - well navy from top to toe.

The Basic WardrobeFebruary 22
If you are in search of the perfect basic wardrobe, that will get you through season after season with only small additions - read on. My perfect basic wardrobe off course has a minimal twist - so no prints and not that many colours. This is my idea of the perfect basic wardrobe.
A white t-shirt - go for good quality - this will be washed - a lot. And a black. And a grey. And a navy.
A white button down shirt. Menswear style with a roomy fit. Same as above with colours. And a baby blue one actually.
Crewneck cashmere sweater(s). On top of the list (and taking up a lot of my closet space) are the men’s sweaters from Uniqlo.
A little black dress - I would go for a very simple version - more boxy than body con. I staock up on models I like and take buy colours.
A skirt - pick one that suits your figure - for me that’s a soft skater skirt - no minis for me.
Jeans - again choose ones that fit your figure - the 70’s may be back but you won’t see me in flares. Skinny it is. High waist.
A pair of boyish trousers.
A white simple lightweight shirt (think Cos and not a soft one with a pussy bow)
A black thin turtleneck - I like the “short” t neck that doesn’t “strangle” me.
Boyish coats - one wool, one short, one leather and one soft trench coat.
Tops - go for tank tops in cotton or jersey and silk tops to wear alone or under knits or see through t-shirts. Again simple does it.
A soft sweatshirt - at least for Sundays.
Make room for items that you truly love - try a lot before choosing. This will help you create your signature look and we all know that a white t-shirt is not just a white t-shirt. Go for good quality so your items will last more than one season. Most important - everything should be comfortable. Go for mixable items that go well together. Stock up on favourites when they are on sale, but steer clear of bargains you don’t need. Impulse shopping is not the key. At least not for me.
Make a mood board to pin point your style - like I also did here with a new season wardrobe revamp. This should consist of style icons - people you admire for their great sense of style or just a single look you love, campaigns, editorials, look book pictures or whatever does it for you.
