Equestrian | Düsseldorf

 

The first instalment of the Düsseldorf diaries is here. Hayden and I had the most amazing time exploring the city in the lead up to Christmas.

Equestrian styling or more Mr Darcy from Pride and Prejudice? Either way, I love trousers with tights and/or boots. It’s a hilarious combo but overdressing is part of the fun with personal style. Patterned paper bag waist trousers that I wish I’d bought in more patterns. They are so comfortable. Snake style boots for all the walking. We walked so far exploring the city it was amazing. The alt beir, the food and the coffee were just some of the highlights.  The pièce de résistance for this trip was this coat. This little ( it’s massive) coat that’s kept we warm and dry is the best money I’ve ever spent. A Topshop girl through and through, you all need a Topshop wool coat.

Little snowman mug was filled with deliciously warm glühwein from the Altstadt Christmas market. We took him home, of course.

Check Trousers and Cropped Jumper

 

Took a trip a day trip to London to see the Frida Kahlo exhibition at the V&A with some university friends. While we waited for a seat at Honest Burger Tess took some shots for me. I think London backdrops are so much more interesting. The orange moped was gorgeous.

Styling checked trousers has become my mission of late. I saw these button fastened ones in Primark of all places and i think they are perfect. I don’t think they are meant to be quite that cropped but I love the styling with the snake look black boots and cropped baggy grey jumper. The colour palette is so muted that colour was 100% needed. My trusty Topshop over coat was the perfect juxtaposition. Also kept me dry in the drizzly weather. Pearl hoops to add a little sophistication and glamour to the look and a vintage faux fur Calvin Klein to top it all off. Sometime super simple styling is sometimes the best.
