i’m so pleased to have a new Things I Like Right Now to share with everyone, and from one of my favourite bloggers – Anabela of Fieldguided. you probably know Anabela and her partner Geoff as the team behind the Fieldguided range (the latest Fluro Pink Tote has my heart). i always really look forward to her posts because of her great eye & a beautiful aesthetic that runs all the way through her blog. oh, she also co-runs a tumblr called Dream Cats which is THE BEST.
1. Round sunglasses
I don’t really need new sunglasses at the moment but that hasn’t stopped me from sighing over these round sunglasses on a near-daily basis. Top: Illesteva Frieda in Marmor & bottom: Karen Walker Rover in Deep Tortoise.
2. Constellation clutch from Scout & Catalogue
I’m a huge fan of Bre’s aesthetic (and a huge fan of Bre in general!), and like the idea of carrying a clutch out to parties when all I need to bring with me is some cash, lipstick, phone, and keys. I’m particularly drawn to this one.
Anja from Clever Nettle is basically the coolest girl, and her photography just keeps getting better and better. I’m such a sucker for the pictures she’s been taking using the white floors of her studio as a backdrop.
I don’t really care for interior design magazines much but I really like Apartamento. It has a really laid-back vibe to it, which I appreciate. No props, no staging — or if they do use props and staging, I wouldn’t know it. Image by Katie.
When I was in London recently I made the mistake of wearing a pair of wedges (beautiful shoes, just not appropriate for hours of walking, really). When we stopped in at Aubin & Wills, I made one of my few purchases of the trip: a pair of white Bensimon sneakers, which I put on immediately. Now that summer has arrived on this side of the world, I’m happy to have them. Image from Shopbop
6. NARS Schiap
I’ve written about this on my blog, but NARS Schiap is my favourite lipstick at the moment. I get loads of compliments when I wear it, and it lasts for hours! It’s a nice way for me to incorporate a little hot pink into my outfit, so to speak.
7. Ice cream photos
I love photos of ice cream. At the risk of sounding pretentious, it has such a lovely sculptural quality that I find pleasing, especially in soft serve form. Image by Annabel Ly
8. Acne pants
I love these snake pants by Acne! I love pants with elasticized bottoms — they look like really fancy sweatpants.
I was so excited when I first heard that HBO was going to make George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones into a miniseries. I have read the books, so I find the series easy enough to follow. My boyfriend Geoff hasn’t read the books, so while we’re watching the show he asks a lot of questions about the plot (there are so many characters and naturally, details are omitted from the series), and I actually relish talking about it with him. I’ve always loved the fantasy genre, although I’m also weirdly picky about it. It has to be just right, and this is just right.
It seems to be getting more difficult for me to feel excited about music (in all honesty, so much of it sounds straight-to-Starbucks-MOR to me, sorry!), but I have fallen hard for Austra. Maybe it appeals to that part of me that was semi-goth for a few months in high school. Katie Stelmanis’ voice has reduced me to tears a few times, for real.
I’m not even sure what they smell like, but the packaging on these perfumes is so good. And “Blanche” sounds as though it was made especially for me.
12. Cute hair & brows
I’ve been trying to grow out my fringe for a few months now. For a long time, a blunt fringe was something I relied on to give me an instant hairstyle: if I had the bangs, I didn’t have to worry about the rest of my hair. I think it’s time for a change, but the process has been tedious and frustrating! Luckily there are plenty of images like this one that inspire me to keep growing them out. If only I had her brows and eyes too. Image of Bambi Northwood-Blyth by Tim Barber for Muse Magazine.
