Diapers and Milk and a brand new hotspot

Looking for the perfect marble printed tees and leggings for my little ones (Obsessed? Me?) , I stumbled across Diapers and Milk on Studio Aimée and I was sold! In an instant, hook, line and sinker! What may look like an ordinary collection of leggings to an outstander, is actually my idea of sartorial heaven for my mini me’s! What may look like just a collection of basic leggings is in fact the brainchild of Leia Sfez (check this übercool mom’s Instagram, it’s envy-enducing and inspiring at the same time!), and draws from her personal style. Minimalist, monochrome and architectural are key words,  which make that these, mainly minimalistic black and white are timeless, priceless and full of style. All Diapers and Milk pieces are made out of organic cotton and printed with non-toxic ink,  The combination possibilities are endless,  and as Leia does not follow the season but updates her collection continuously, so are the shopping possibilities! And when Leia does collaborations, so does them right! A brainstorming session with Veja led to these …

Wishlist Wednesday – Terre Bleue Sales

Sales are here!!! A self imposed shopping ban ends now, time to go crazy,  hit the shops and get that credit card plastic burning!  Mission for this sale season? Trying to be sensible and practical (let’s see how long it takes for that one to go flying out the window). Focus on items that can be easily combined with several pieces already in my (overcrowded) wardrobe, work on several occasions and can be worn longer than only on the hottest day of the year (which just so happens to be today…).  First stop on my shopping spree: Terre Bleue. A brand largely ignored by me for being too humpty frumpty, I was proven wrong when I started to dig a bit deeper and looked past my original prejudices. Result: a wishlist as long as my arm… Will hopefully be mine after today: two gorgeous sweaters that will look good in every season, with every separate in my closet, a gorgeous tongue in cheek parrot print playsuit, the numero uno multitasker, a navy blue jumpsuit, and …

Wishlist Wednesday – Burberry Rocks The Espadrille

Burberry has always held a special place in my heart (even back when it was all tartan and no trend). The icon par excellence of all things British has gone from being a British upper class staple to becoming a worldwide trendsetter ( That monogrammed poncho! That heart-print blouse! The make up!). Each season, their collection enchants me in unexpected ways, leaving me lusting after something I never thought I’d want, and this summer, it’s no different. Espadrilles never really appealed all that much to me, not even when the Chanel ones were all the rage a few season ago. Sure, I do have a hot pink pair that I only wear at home, but actually combining them with a great outfit and go outside? Never! Fast forward to about a week ago, when A Burberry newsletter dropped into my mailbox, and my heart skipped a beat! I instantly fell in love! Head over heels, hook, line and sinker, you know the likes. Not a check in sight, the stripe or animal print just beg …

Wishlist Wednesday – Lipault – Travelling has never been this colourful

I’m counting down the days to a little week-long break in two days, and packing my bags has taught me one sad lesson: All of my suitcases, bags and trolleys are old, in need of replacement and above all, a dullingly boring black! So much for travelling in style. Looking for a splash of colour to take with me to La Douce France (or anywhere else… wanderlust taking over), I stumbled across the newest collection from Lipault. A jolt of electric neon yellow screamed from across my screen, and I knew instantly that this was the stuff my suitcase and trolley dreams were made of! Now, would I be able to get my hands on this beauty before Friday?

Balmain For H&M!

What better way to start my week than a spot of breaking news!

Dior Tie Dye Collection SS15 – Love at first sight

Summer seems to be kicking it up a notch outside, but my skin doesn’t seem to be following just yet! In need of that lightly sunkissed touch, I’ve been looking at all the new Spring/Summer collections, but in all honesty, I’ve been too mesmerized by the Dior Tie Dye Collection to notice anything else. A beautified re-interpretation of the seventies-esque spirit of the tie-dye fashion, Dior created beauty out of the hippie fashion favourite. Shades of coral, pink, mauve, jade, sandy beige and amber bronze fade into one another like a beachy sunset. More Saint Tropez than Woodstock, the promotional images are more than dream-worthy, and now that the collection is out, I’ve been lusting after it’s pieces even more! Up high on my wishlist are the two Diorskin Nude Tan Tie Dye Blush Harmony powders. Pink Sunrise and Coral Sunset are both limited editions, and they could not be swoon-worthier! A touch of wun for your face, these light up your complexion as if you’ve just returned from a long weekend on the French Riviera. Complemented perfectly by …

5 Things – The Wishlist edition

Seems like an eternity since I last feautured a 5 thing post here on LeenLovesStyle, but no fear, we are easing back into the swing of these (whilst trying not to overload you dears with too many product reviews…). First up, a few of the items that have jumped onto my wishlist (it is Wednesday after all!). Edited down to the five picks that have caught my eye, here we go! * Reiss has done it again! Browsing their webshop for a few ideas for my little sis’  wedding later this year quickly turned into a full on love fest! Currently racing through my mind are the Alexia shorts and this Hermione top, and how breathtaking are those cut-out sandals? Or pair them with that makes-me-want-to-play graphic playsuit? * The Christopher Kane for NARS Collection: Whenever NARS presents something new, I am all eyes and ears (NARS Fanclub? Where do I sign up?), and the very moment I spotted this new collaboration on Harpers Bazaar, I was sold! Based on the spectrum of reds and pinks used by Christopher Kane in …

A little beauty hideaway at home – Hülsta Lunis

Every woman needs a little hideaway spot just for themselves, to unwind after a long stressfull day, re-energize and replenish yourself or to just have a little moment to prepare yourself for the day ahead. In an ideal world, I would live a block away from the beach so that I could nip out for 5 minutes every day, but hey, unfortunately we can’t have it all… Another thing I’ve been dreaming about to have for a long, long time is my very own vanity table, a little spot in the bedroom reserved just for me to put my make up on, take it off, experiment a little with new products or just fiff faff about as wel beauty-obsessed bloggers like to do. Obviously, with my well known soft spot for Scandinavian design, a white colour scheme and clean lines, not just any dressing table would do (many vanities have been vetoed because too frilly, too girly or too “bweugh”). An ancillary unit that would look equally striking as my make up haven as a …

Wishlist Wednesday: Me + Em

Comfortable Luxury and Effortless Elegance. When a brand is described with those tag lines, I am all ears! No one seems to have this whole understated cool yet feminine and stylish yet not too over the top down to a t like the British (Baukjen, Jaeger, Reiss, Whistles, I’m looking at you!), and when I discover a new brand that fits that bill, my obession levels rise to an all time high! Case in point: ME + EM. Founded by Clare Hornby after a career in advertising, the brand focuses on her belief that less is more and is keen on providing quality lifestyle driven clothing for that effortless 24/7 chic we all seek. Perfectly blending high quality fabrics such as fluid jerseys, smooth silks and cosy cashmere knits with an obsessive focus on what ought to be the basics for every brand: a perfect cut, fit, comfort and finish. “I have always believed that what really distinguishes a desirable piece of clothing is the quality and durability of the fabric, the precision of the fit, the perfection of the …

Thursday Treat – Givenchy Antigona bag

All it took was one little tweet from Laura, and bam, I was in love! Hook, line and sinker! A crazy love obsession, one that any and every bag loving, tote obessed and clutch craving woman will understand!  Like the Copenhagen mermaid whispering my name, the Givenchy Antigona tote in Dusky Blue enchanted me with it’s softly textured goat leather and structural lines. Sleek and smart, thanks to several internal pockets, and with switchable shoulder straps and top handles to boot! The light, greyish blue gives it that elegant touch that just oozes Spring-appropriate, and it’s medium size looks equally at home in a meeting or meeting up with friends. As if I need another reason to justify saving up for it’s €1.590 price tag. Oh, and how cute is that Mini Antigona in yellow?
