Morocco




We just got back from a quick four day vacation in Morocco and I thought I’d share some more pictures here. Morocco is such a beautiful, fascinating place and after insane flight deals after Brexit, we booked a very spontaneous trip to somewhere I’ve been wanting to explore for a while. It was so nice to get out of London and get a little sun and be near the beach. Old town Rabat is filled with markets, colors, spices, and delicious food. I loved sitting down and having mint tea every afternoon and browsing the markets was such a dream! It was Moroccan rug/blanket heaven.  I did purchase a few things for our home which I’ll be sharing later on.

P.S. In the top picture I’m wearing a blouse by Réalisation Par, and my favorite jeans by J brand (lots of similar ones here).

Lately

 P 01. + 03. We spent ten days in LA recently, and I had to stop by The Apartment by The Line – talk about apartment goals! So much inspiration and the best place for homewear and gifts. 02. Alfred Coffee – the best for celeb spotting and overpriced coffee ;-). 04. The beautiful exterior of the Isabel Marant shop on Melrose. {I’ve been stocking up on cacti to emulate this in our London flat}. 05. Back in London, the cutest bakery in Camden. 06. The cafe at the Wallace Collection is a total dream – it seemed quieter than a lot of London museums, like a little oasis in the middle of the city.

And some things worth sharing that I’ve been loving lately:

+ I just found this dainty ring on Etsy and I love it – looks way more expensive then it is and would be the perfect addition to a stack of rings.
+ I really love this Instagram account – beautiful art plus Danish interiors make for a perfectly curated Instagram.
+ Recent purchase: this. I’ll be doing a full skincare routine on the blog soon!
+ Have you seen the Kate Moss x Equipment collab? I bought one during Shopbop’s big sale and it’s becoming my go-to piece.

Amsterdam

IMG_8792

We just got back from a long weekend in Amsterdam, which was so Christmas-y and charming with the canals and bikes and crooked houses. The weekend alternated from amazing food and wine to finding fresh juice to balance out the bad {but so good}. We stumbled across the cutest Christmas market where I bought that marble and wood cheese board that I probably should give as a Christmas gift but I love it so much!

P.S. In the totally not posed picture of me walking I’m wearing: Rag & Bone booties, J Brand jeans, Vince sweater, Acne scarf, Asos coat {on sale!}, Celiné crossbody.

Lille, France

A few weekends ago we drove to Lille, France for a long weekend {it’s still so crazy to me that we live in a place where we can drive to France}. Lille is so gorgeous and sort of a smaller, super friendly version of Paris. The shops, food, wine, cheese, pastries, are all incredible and we even stumbled across the cutest cafe with two French guys singing the Louisiana blues {talk about niche}.

In true French fashion, many of the shops and restaurants were closed {many of them close or have very limited hours during the summer months}, but it wasn’t hard to find a good croissant and cup of coffee or glass of wine. We didn’t plan anything and just wandered around getting lost and discovering little corners of Lille. I also loved the people-watching! Everyone looks so effortlessly chic in France – no one wears distinguishable designers or labels, it’s all very tailored and good quality without being flashy and over the top.

If you ever get the change to go to Lille, go! Friendly people, good food, good shopping, and an easy holiday where you don’t have to plan too much because the whole city is gorgeous. Can’t wait to go back!

{P.S. What I’m wearing: backless top, Iro jacket, Rag & Bone boots, Saint Laurent bag}.

Istanbul

I’m wearing Frame Denim, Rag & Bone booties, Isabel Marant leather jacket {similar from Veda}, Nasty Gal Fedora, LV tote, Vince top, Michael Kors watch.

I’m finally getting around to sorting through my pictures from Istanbul – it was such a fun trip and it felt so surreal to be there. The Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, and the Grand Bazaar are must-sees (was so fun to shop for kilim rugs in the bazaar!) and we also loved the Ministry of Coffee in between all of our touristy stops. Istanbul is such a fascinating city –hope you enjoy our snaps!

P.S. A few of you have asked me for hotel recemmendations when we travel. We always use Mr. & Mrs. Smith and have been impressed each time. Highly recommend it!
