Today I'm bringing you a tightly edited selection of low-quality outfit snaps inspired by the common theme of "looking slightly aggressive in front of things". In reality, I'm feeling A-OK at the time of both photos as I am 1a. standing in front of one of my favourite Joseph Beuys' works in the Pompidou Centre, 1b. standing in front of lots of stuff I own in my room (spot the clothesmoth spray!) and 2. feeling super cosy. I'm a big wimp so staying warm is higher on my list of priorities than looking catwalk ready. I have been diligently wearing two pairs of socks, leggings under trousers and, for those desparately frosty days, a leather jacket under a coat.
1a. Margaret howell jacket and trousers; comme des garçons top; converse; celine trio
1b. Weekday trench; acne leather jacket; meadham kirchhoff x topshop dress; american apparel shirt

1. chloe sevigny x opening ceremony jacket, charles anastase shirt, doc martens
2. opening ceremony pink knit top
Just a quicky - I got some new levis and am throroughly enjoying the relaxed fit. My thighs can breathe and I feel like an extra in a John Hughes movie.

My summer style reference has been "sassy japanese ceramicist'. The recent heatwave and my aversion to flashing flesh forced me to think hard about what i could wear without melting completely on the tube. No crop-tops or short-shorts or any other hyphenated rhyming clothing for me unfortunately/fortunately. Instead, I turned to practical smock tops with lots of pockets (for my turning tools, obviously) and easy, breezy cotton pants. Loose and airy. Simple combinations causing minimal fuss in those hot hot mornings. I like to hope that I gave off the vibes of a practical woman. That's not even the best bit - I'm pleased to confirm that the smocks and cullottes also work perfectly in our current damper times. I think my imaginary sass-bomb ceramicist role model would be proud.

Christopher kane top, monki trousers, comme des garcons rubber shoes
This is what I'm wearing RIGHT NOW. This is an exciting statement for me because I usually feel like this blog is constantly playing catch up with actual life. Feeling inspired by the Margaret Howell talk at the V&A last night, I took the plunge with these rubber shoes at the Dover Street Market sale this morning. They feel very practical, as if I could go for row in the sea at a minute's notice, but not too serious or polished. Perfect for english summer days (anyone else get caught out in the torrential rain a couple of hours ago?).
