Coming back to London after four months – FOUR MONTHS! – has thrust me into a state of constant celebration. All I want to do is hug long-lost friends ’til they pop, over-caffeinate at all the coffee shops I’ve abused as roaming work spaces, and dress like I’m ready for an impromptu East End rooftop party at the drop of a flat.
It’s good to be back (and wearing skirts that children try to stroke on the Underground), London.
What I Wore:
Weaver Skirt in Disc Sequin White from Motel
Leopard print top from Ganni
Nude ballet flats with a bow (similar here)
Ol’ faithful biker jacket (similar here)
Stepping into the Motel Rocks showroom felt a little bit like the movie Clueless. And a Christmas party.
Both the brand and the women who work at the brand come in a fantastic package: they’re playful, flirty, and trend-aware. With price points that we can all afford, their Autumn/Winter collection has a lot of glitter, and a lot of print. Designed in-house, two standout prints were a Tetris-looking floral print and a smokey paint-splattered print. I think one of the best things about Motel Rocks is that if you like a print but feel that the garment itself isn’t your style, all of their prints come in a range of styles: jeans, crop tops, dresses, hot pants, jackets, and more.
On top of that, Motel is expanding into very exciting shoe territory later this year…but my lips are sealed for now!
