Ohayoooo Gozaimasu/Good Morning !

I’m attempting to learn Japanese at the moment and thought I’d test out my slight conversational skills at the start of this post. So, as you can see, the pinstripes are back. I sort of stocked up on these trousers on impulse when PLT went on sale earlier this year. And they are so lightweight and airy that I didn’t get to wear them until I hit warmer climates. That being said, they are truly a Godsend in this heat .

Pairing the camel pinstripes with a similarly vertical stripped tie front crop top that cinched this look at the waist, created a well proportioned svelte figure. Something I aim for in most of my looks to kind of balance the scales as I’m a lot smaller up top than at the bottom. The flower choker is also one of my most favourite finds from this year and it complemented the strong power stripe look by adding a certain feminine softness.

I’m going to disclose a slightly embarrassing fact now. I actually fell down the stairs during this blog shoot and put on a brave face for the last two pictures. I’m really clumsy and honestly, I’m surprised I hadn’t fallen down them before then. I guess I’m trying to supply a moral to my little story here, you’ll fall down stairs in life but as long as you get up and hustle through, you’ll be alright.

Until the next post,

Hey Hey,

So I’ve decided against writing posts that focus primarily on talking about what I’m wearing and why I chose to do so because I’ve come to realise that sometimes, I just throw things on and my outfits come through for me (I love those kind of days). More importantly, I got bored with blogging because I was trying to fit this niche of a fashion blogger that posts about just that and that’s not who I inherently am, and it’s why I guess I stayed away for so long.

This blog will now be an open space for anything and everything that inspires or interests me and with this change, my posts will definitely be more regular and well, more me. I’ll be putting my poetry up as well as little travel stories/rants/anything that comes to mind really and I hope you’ll all be accepting of that change. It’s definitely going to change ModainLondres’s layout and overall appeal – maybe – who knows really? (Social media Gods do)

That being said, I am still very passionate about personal style and honing/expressing your own identity through the clothes that you choose to adorn yourself with. Like, hey peg trousers where have you been for the majority of my life? I’m way too much of a committment-phobe to commit to wearing skinny jeans 5/7 days a week and I never quite understood the aesthetic of loose-fitting clothes until quite recently – okay major lie*

I understood, I just didn’t think it was for me – until I rediscovered these trousers in my wardrobe, like damn, I think I might have worn them all week if I wasn’t so regimented with my denim. The khaki top was a birthday present from my sister – thanks again xx and it is so comfortable and the right level of cropped, it’s short but not short enough to feel outed by the cold and that just makes me happy (and warm)

Plus its a great summer colour *prays for sunshine tomorrow*

I’m also going to attempt to trangress the boundaries within which I feel comfortable and so there will be also be a few beauty and (LUSH) hauls on here fairly soon!

And I solemnly promise not to disappear for another 8 months
