Polo

To be very honest I was watching Monte Carlo a couple of days before I wore this and was inspired (for lack of a better word) by the polo scene. I’ve always loved the whole classic Ralph Lauren look, and decided to give it a go myself.

I think it would look perfect with knee high brown leather boots too, but there was no space in my suitcase! I stained my lips with MAC Diva and went from a high ponytail to a french braid. I really love french braids and it fits really well with the equestrian look (in my opinion at least:)). It’s definitely different from what I usually wear and I absolutely loved how refreshing it felt.

And now moving away from clothes, I went across the bridge to Point Bonita that day and the views are spectacular. I sadly didn’t have time to wait for the tunnel to open and go all the way to the lighthouse, but what I got to see was more than enough. Hearing the waves crashing is one of the best sounds. If you’re in an active mood, there are some great hiking trails in the area too!

Blackout

This colour combination is one you’ll always find on the streets of fashion capitals during fashion weeks around the world. I cheated a little and wore dark blue jeans but black leggings work perfectly too!

 

Photo 13-9-14 6 26 08 pmI paired my dark jeans (from Hollister since their lengths fit me best) with a casual loose black t-shirt (Stradivarius) and my favourite black leather jacket. I wanted to keep the edge and keep the lines sharp so I finished it off with black leather boots from Hugo Boss. Keep to the colour scheme with a black bag (my favourite is from Prada which I’ll feature in a later post) or spice things up with a bright bag (orange works well:))
