Weekend Reading

Garden Party Bag and the Book "Grace" in the Grass

Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend! Fortunately I’ve lucked in to some pretty good weather while visiting Stockholm, so during the last couple of days I’ve been enjoying the grass underneath my feet, a good book and one or two ice creams in the park.

•   To go to London together with Louis Vuitton and experience the city’s street art scene with other talented and creative people sounds like a little dream, right? Well, that’s exactly what Mathieu, the man behind the blog DAAAMN! got to do. And since I love his photography it was a pleasure to look through his photos from the trip.
•   If there’s something I’m dying to see, it’s the lavender fields in Provence. Here Vicki of French Essence shares a few thoughts about this purple gorgeousness. And these photos by Nicole (1, 2, 3) certainly didn’t help either… I need to make it there someday soon!
•   I love scented candles. Well, not all scented candles, but the ones that have a pleasant and not too strong scent. After seeing this I love them even more! Thank you to The Beauty Look Book for sharing these great tips.
•   A look into Diane von Furstenberg‘s personal vintage wardrobe styled by Natalie Joos? Yes, please! I loved this little video (and if you prefer photos you can have a look here) of the models, the clothes and Diane herself.
•   The Business of Fashion presents their top 10 picks for the fall fashion campaigns. I don’t think I agree with all of their picks but I’m loving the dreamy world of Dior, luxurious Oscar de la Renta and quirky Lanvin right now. And what about Chanel’s spooky film, have you seen it yet?
•   The lovely Lauren of the blog Luxe Happens asked me to share five of my everyday luxuries, so here they are. Hope you’ll like them!
•   I’m in love with the photographs by The Coveteur of Nicole in Florence. You’ll find them all right here! Simply gorgeous, right?
•   … And I also loove The Sartorialist‘s videos. Especially his series called “The Forgotten Fashion Week“. This time we get to have a little look into the drivers’ lives. If you’re not interested in that, you could always close your eyes and just listen to the wonderful Italian being spoken. I miss Italy already!

    I know this question has nothing to do with your current post, but I follow your blog all the time!
    I just wanted your opinion on what the weather in paris in october (late oct) would be like? and whether it would be worth going to places like nice and monaco in october?


    • Hi Janet. It’s soo hard to predict the weather in Paris since one day it can be super sunny and warm and the next freezing cold and rainy. I suggest checking out the weather forecast in advance. The beginning of last October was really nice and quite warm, but again, you never (!) know with Paris. I love Nice, Cannes and Monaco for example but I’ve never been during October. But I’m thinking why not? I don’t know if you can lay on the beach still but exploring the cities is so much fun as well.

      Good luck!

    I’ve been reading a lot of blogs today and now stumbling upon your point on The Coveteur with Nicole, it somehow gives me a sense of motivation on blogging smarter. I’m definitely inspired by her pointers and pictures.
    I hope you’re having a great weekend yourself =)
