#ootd in london

It’s difficult for me to pinpoint Londoners’ style in one photograph. While I was visiting, I saw a huge variety of chic outfits (no surprise). But they did have some common threads: pretty darn stylish…and lots of crop tops.

So, in the photograph below, I have distilled what I’ve seen of London street fashion into a single outfit. What do you think? Does it capture the essence of the city’s style?

inspector morse and mr.selfridge

I’m a big fan of Inspector Morse (and Endeavour and Lewis…), so I might have had a minor freakout when I discovered an Inspector Morse tour in Oxford, England. Our guide, a retired Oxford University professor, was not only unbelievably knowledgable about the TV series and books, but she also happened to be Colin Dexter’s neighbor….and hilarious (in a nutty British professor kind of way that you’d expect from a woman giving a tour on an eccentric Oxford detective).

The next day, I had a chance to geek out further over British TV with a trip to Selfridge’s. As a fan of the show, Mr Selfridge, the one hundred-year-old department store didn’t let me down! The place was a commercial playland full of candy rooms, cocktail bars, sundae stands, booming electronics, and a delightfully colorful cunchony of department store staples like perfume and cosmetics. Overall, it was just what I expected a 21st century Selfridge’s to look like, and while I didn’t quite have the funds to support a large purchase, a bag of bulk artisanal candy gave me the perfect little taste of the Selfridge’s experience. Just as Harry would have wanted– with just a pound or two you can leave the store absolutely delighted.

summer styles at the gibbson girl

Summer is officially here! I just left Amsterdam (where the temp just dropped to sixty degrees and the sun was reluctant to shine), so I needed a reminder of sunny days and warm breezes. Here are some of my vintage Etsy shop The Gibbson Girl’s best summer styles.

Personally, I’m particularly fond of the sheer blouse. What is your favorite summer style from the shop?

tour de france 2015 in utrecht

I only have a few days left on my Europe trip (nooo!), so I was so happy to find out that’d I’d be leaving on a high note: specifically, the Grand Depart of the Tour de France in Utrecht. Honestly, I didn’t even know the Tour started in the Netherlands until a few weeks ago, and I was even more pleasantly surprised to learn that the race started in one of my favorite (and very close by) towns– Utrecht.

The best recipe for a Tour de France celebration? Combine a cool city…

..And inspirational cyclists.

Needless to say, the day was a blast, and I’m looking forward to following the race as the cyclists continue through the Netheralands and beyond.

Disclaimer: While I throughly enjoy watching and following the Tour de France (and admire the inspirational athletes who compete), I find it very disappointing that women are excluded from the event. Excluding women from high profile events like the Tour de France equals fewer racing opportunities for women, which in turn mean less publicity and support and lower female athlete salaries and prize money opportunities. It’s a big deal, and it’s something we should remember after we’ve enjoyed the excitement and the thrill of events like the Tour de France. (Thankfully, there has been some progress.)

A plus tard and tot ziens!

#OOTD in dubrovnik, croatia

While it’s true that I saw many fashion blunders (think: tourists) in the coastal city of Dubrovnik, I also twice as many outfits that captured the essence of the seaside city perfectly and stylishly.  In the photography below, I have distilled what I’ve seen of Dubrovnik street (and sea) fashion into a single outfit. Inspired by locals and style-conscious tourists alike. What do you think? Does it capture the spirit of this medieval town?

#OOTD in italy

My recent travels have taken me to a half dozen countries and countless cities. People watching is inevitable (and enjoyable), and I can’t help but observe the unique style of each city. For the next few posts titled, “#OOTD” I’ll be presenting you all with my idea for the fashion in a particular country or city. While it’s impossible to capture the style diversity of every city I visit, I’ll do my best to distill what I’ve observed as the general style in one photograph.

So here you have it! In the photograph below, I have distilled what I’ve seen of Italian street fashion into a single outfit. What do you think? Does it capture the sprezzatura” of the country?
