Riding Into Fashion

I am pretty brave, w hen it comes to testing out the latest trends. So much so, that I'm often terrified by terrible fashion choices when looking back at old photos. However, there's a trend now, that I'm not too sure I can hop on board with --- biker shorts.

After nearly 15 years of slapping some on for cheerleading practice, it's hard for me to mentally take them seriously as a fashion choice.

The Kardashian-Jenner clan have been taking this trend to the next level by wearing biker shorts with some pretty elaborate pieces. They've even been on runways topped with sophisticated blazers.


If I could ever try the trend, I'm thinking it would be easier to pull off as a cute, sporty day look rather than something I'd wear on a night out on the town.

But it's a trend that seems to be gaining speed, would you wear biker shorts to the club?

Copenhagen Fashion Week Spring 2019

Copenhagen Fashion Week Spring 2019

Copenhagen fashion week is always filled with craziness and color, and this season was no different. From the streets to the catwalks there was something to be seen at every corner. Candy colored frocks paraded from show to show while wild textures and prints made appearances at every venue. I love the playfulness that the Danes bring to the fashion community, and below I've rounded up my favorite street style looks as well as my favorite Spring 2019 looks!

The bigger the dress, the better according to street style stars such as Emili Sindlev and Courtney Trop.
Loving these jumpsuits! Very inspired to pick up one for myself.

Now onto the new collections:

Of Another Time

Of Another Time

Maybe it's because I'm currently reading Emma or maybe it's all the museum hopping the Pink Ladies recently did while in New York, but whatever the reason I am currently really inspired by the past.
I really love historical books, the art of yesteryear and just the overall care that was put into every creation. But lately, I've been doing more than just admiring historical ideals, I've been sneaking bits into my everyday fashion and makeup. 

Lately, I've been inspired by fresh skin and rosy cheeks so I've just been keeping my makeup really natural. I love to use my new "Soleil Tan de Chanel", Glossier Skin Tint, along with a rosy cream blush on my skin. For my eyes, I've been going light and bright with shimmering pinks and lilacs like Glossier's Lidstars. 

For my clothes, I've been wearing soft colors and dresses everywhere I go, along with ballet flats. I love the way people used to dress up and really put an effort into their looks, and also, how feminine and beautiful women dressed with frills and flowers. 

And it's not just me that currently inspired by the past, the UK Harper Bazaar's June issue was filled with beautiful editorials set in stunning manors. The June issue of Vogue had an article about a book discussing French aristocrats, and with this article, pretty paintings from an 19th century setting.

Maybe you too, can find inspiration from these pretty little things that make me feel like I'm in another time.

Luke Edward Hall

Luke Edward Hall

Luke Edward Hall is a London-based artist and designer of interiors, fabrics, and ceramics. He has collaborated with some of the most iconic brands such as Burberry, Liberty, and Alex Eagle.

I just recently discovered his work thanks to the website, Semaine. I easily became obsessed and now I want all of the artwork that he's ever created!!

"His colorful aesthetic is informed by a love of history, an appreciation of beauty and a sense of playfulness."

In 2016, he worked with Burberry on set design and store displays.

Recently, Luke aligned with the NYC-based menswear label Rowing Blazers 
for a small capsule collection as part of it's SS18 range. 
(The pink ladies were in NYC during the launch party and completely missed out on the event, even though we walked right passed it....oops!)

I love how Luke dresses similarly to his art, by incorporating bright colors and luxe fabrics.

Some of his other commissioned work includes brands such as Papier, Emporio Sirenuses, Bicester Village and many more! I'm so inspired by his designs in both interior design and fashion.

I'm so glad I found out about Luke and his colorful world and I hope to one day own one of his works!
