Postcards from Rome

My second look from my short but sweet Roman holiday was an almost all black ensemble put together using pieces that have beautiful stories behind. I found the straw hat in a small vintage shop on Portobello Road owned by a kind-eyed man in his early 70’s, whom I bonded with over a mutual hate of cheap coffee and a blind admiration for all things truly vintage.

‘A vintage Chanel bag’ was scribbled on the top of my wishlist for so many years that when I finally found one that I loved (and could afford) it felt like a milestone in its own right. Like I finally got my life together. Hashtag goals.

My love affair with precious looking shoes has guided my virtual steps towards these pearl detailing sliders which are nothing short of lust-worthy. They have become my go-to shoes for pretty much any occasion as they can easily be dressed up or down.

So wherever summer may take you – sunny holidays, charming coffee places, picking up the dry cleaning – make sure to tell a story with each and every outfit you put together.
