How are we all feeling about the new longer skirt length? Personally I love it. However as much as the length can be super flattering and feminine it can be cruel to your legs and very far from elegant when not styled right. So unless you have the height or proportions like Karlie Kloss, heels are your best friend when stepping out in the knee length skirt. Now the thing is we all love our sneakers and Birkinstocks at the moment and teamed with a ladylike skirt we’ve got a winner. In that case choose a high-waisted skirt and wear with a cropped top or sweater to make your legs look longer.
One of my favorites is this slit skirt from Altewai Saome. The slits make it up for the square shape of the skirt and helps elongating the legs, which can be quite helpful when worn with a longer boxy shirt like I did yesterday.
I got my first Le Labo fragrance back in 2011 and I’ve been addicted ever since. My favourites are Rose 31 and Santal 33 (the number stands for the amount of ingredients in each perfume) so when I got to pick one of the perfume oils last week in Harrods I sticked to what has become my signature fragrance and went for the Rose 31. The thing about these perfume oils is that they’re perfect for summertime where an eau de parfum can be a little harsh on the skin because of the alcohol in it – and you can actually also use it in your hair. Perfect for warmer days where you want your scent to be more subtle or to freshen up your fragrance during the day. Or to dab on your neck before going to bed…
Visit Le Labo in Harrods the next time you’re in London – or shop it here.
I was a little too optimistic with the weather this morning when I stepped out in bare legs and my favorite lace dress (hence the goosebumps). 5 minutes later I was back inside – and changed the dress for jeans and a slouchy sweatshirt. Let’s hope for next week…

I rarely dress in head-to-toe black unless I’m going out but I decided to make an exception this morning – mainly because of what I’m wearing on my upper part – a leather turtleneck from Studio Ruig, which is new in my wardrobe and so pretty that I couldn’t wait for a dinnerparty to wear it. So sleek worn with a pencilskirt or as here, a pair of skinny black pants and the-musthave-of-the-season, the mules.

Paris finally showed itself from a sunnier side today and I welcomed it in my most colourful outfit (but toned down with a light grey) and went to Place Vendôme to meet with both Valentino and Chanel before I took the train back to London.
