Tomorrow my journey continues and this time I am doing a stop in Munich, hoping that the city has more than good beer and bretzels on offer...so wish me luck!
We are almost done with packing and this time we are eager to see what the old and eccentric city of Nuremberg has to offer…so rest assured, that though we may be quiet this week, we are scouting new material to inspire your fashion senses…
We turn up the British flavour with our next laid back men’s look spotted in London. We love the flat cap and the rugged lumberjack style shirt. Add to this the traditional yet top notch denims and we are loving this combination. We love the black Grenson shoes that add an elegant edge to this rather casual look.
For more wonderful footwear, visit Grenson online or in Lamb’s Conduit Street, where tradition meets fine leather. We love the black Archie loafers selling at 285 pounds. Then our second choice would have to be the very gentlemanly pair of Monty shoes (with tassles), priced at 200 pounds. Wear with your oldest jeans and a simple white t-shirt for boyish cool. Finally put some muscle behind your footwear with these Fred boots retailing at 260 pounds. They are light enough for summer and will be wonderful for autumn when they are a bit worn in.

Oversized blouses are a super basic that can go from raw silk all the way to lush velvet if the need be. Our next London look, all McQueen, is of course urban with a raw edge. The boots are practical, but with enough heel height to take it from day to evening wear quite easily. We love the open hair and of course the wonderful belt that cinches in the waist to perfect proportions!
Our label of choice for perfect blouses has to be the French label, Equipment. Our top three include this marvellous bright white mini embroidery shirt, retailing at 198 dollars. Then try on this mannish blue sartorial striped shirt, selling at 188 dollars. Finally, try this nude pyrite animal print blouse, retailing at 258 dollars.

With typical British flair, we present our next London look. We love the true mod feeling of this look, the fifties style top and the ever so cool loafers. Add to this the great glasses and of course, the figure-hugging trousers and it is a look that could take you from Italy to France and back to swinging London in the blink of an eye.
Our label to watch for me has to be Peter Werth, who supplies the coolest men’s fashion with a retro touch. You can find this label at Seven Dials Store and online at peterwerth.com and also topman.com
Here are our top picks, all taken from Topman…keep the rain at bay with this blue mac, selling at 149 pounds. Then add a layer with this dogtooth jumper retailing at 65 pounds. Finish your look with these tan shoes, priced at 89 pounds.

With a head of hair like this and a poppy blouse to bring it even more to the max, this next London look is sure to bring a smile to your dial. We love the look because it is a punch of colour and why not, when spring is on our doorstep…well this side of the equator at least!
Our new find regarding concept stores, has to be Darkroom, where you can find great home décor, stationery and fashion side by side…Our first choice is this wonderful Lizzy Disney bag, retailing at 280 pounds. Our second object to love would have to be this gold ring by Henriette Lofstrom, selling at 224 pounds. Finally, try these Lark Optics sunglasses selling at 295 pounds. They will take you from the safari into the city in one smooth leap! So visit them either at Selfridges or Lamb's Conduit Street...or be lazy and fire up your laptop and visit them online...

We love anything minimal…take it back to basics and we love the deconstructed. Take our next London look. It may be simple to the normal eye, but take a closer look and you will see the perfect fit sweater combined with the trousers that look as though she has stepped off a yacht. The plimsolls are great and of course the very simple, but elegant jewellery. And the fringe...or as they say in the US, 'bangs'...well, it is just amazing...
A sea side look is always current and of course, our stop would have to be at Folk in Lambs Conduit Street where only the coolest of cool can be found. Out first pic is this amazing light overcoat retailing at 375 pounds. Then try this mesh knit panel jumper, selling at 175 pounds. We are still not over our culottes obsession…so try these, selling at 275 pounds. Finally try on a pair of blue patent sneakers retailing at 195 pounds.
