TSM Outfit Post: Relaxing under the Tuscan sun in Anthropologie Pt. 1

Tien in tuscanyAs I write this from my gloomy Edinburgh hotel room (I’m up here for work for a few days), I can’t believe that it was only a few weekends ago that I relaxed with friends in the magical Italian region of Tuscany. I can still taste the local Tuscan Bean bread soup (my fave), the rich Pici pasta (that we hand made ourselves at cooking school) and the deliciously smooth taste of Chianti wine. Tuscany has always been on my radar as a must see in Europe and the natural beauty and kind hospitality exceeded all my expectations. Memories of soaking up the bursts of sunshine through the picturesque rolling hills of untouched vineyards and olive trees are providing a temporary escape from this very busy day/week/month…

Every year I treat myself to a new Summer dress that allows me to look forward to travelling under the hot European sun. You might remember last year’s one here from my time in Bologna. This year, I wanted a dress that was more flow-y (read: more room for over indulging), still breathable and one with a casual vibe which could still be dressed up. For me, white sun dresses signify long happy Summer days so when I came across this dress by Second Female (a Cophenhagen designer) in Anthropoloigie, I was instantly drawn to the white ombre, slightly hippie tie-dye look. I’m always wary of dresses getting dirty so the darker bottom of the dress was perfect.  Continue reading

T-Styled Me’s Spring Picks: Monochrome Geometric Patterns and Brightly coloured Neons

Have you ever had one of those unexpected hectic weeks where you’d envisaged cruising straight through to the weekend but somehow found yourself feeling like you worked an entire week before Tuesday was even over? Nothing has gone quite to plan this week; I’ve been putting out other people’s fires at work and haven’t had any time to focus on all the extra workload challenges thrown in my corner. The woman who replenishes the candy machine has been working overtime this week because of me and I’m bummed I haven’t even had the chance to step outside the office during daylight hours to enjoy the mini heat wave we had in London the other day (it was like, double digit degrees!).

I know it’s terribly cliched but I find retail therapy calms me down. I find it soothing to wander quietly into one of my favourite stores and mentally put together outfits. Luckily I get to do this through T-Styled Me’s personal Styling and Shopping services for my client so it doesn’t get too expensive :P

I’ve been working hard putting together an early Spring Capsule Wardrobe for one of my clients and I have been so excited about helping her experiment with new fabrics, textures and colours that she hasn’t worked with before. Below are snapshots of the outfits I’ve put together as well as ideas on how to style the pieces together.
