Straight after London Fashion Week I had the pleasure to be invited to the Ecoluxe London Fashion show which focuses on Luxury Sustainable Fashion. Now I know a lot of people won't connect fashion forward clothing with ecologically sustainable practices but I was very impressed to say the least.
The designs of the Swedish brand MARiKRiNA in particularly left me really impressed. I can see myself wearing her clothes which are both edgy and feminine at the same time. Marie Kristina Carlsson's garments are made in Europe and have this distinctive Scandinavian style of clean lines and cuts which make them timeless and great wardrobe staples.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the sunny weather! Selfridges made my day yesterday by including a street style snap of me during London Fashion Week onto their fashion newsletter. You should be quite familiar with my ripped boyfriend jeans from Asos (similar here and here) and this lovely Zara coat by now.

I fell like I don't give Mango as much attention as it deserves so when clicking through ASOS I came across this cool biker jacket. It's the perfect cover up for colder spring days and you can't beat a good monochrome jacket.

We started off with the Jerusalem Artichoke Chopsticks with Truffle Ponzu Dip which set the standard very high.
Followed by Miso Grilled Baby Chicken with Spicy Lemon Garlic Sauce which were beautifully marinated.
Tuna Sashimi Pizza with Truffle Ponzu, Red Onions and Green Chillies
Delicious Baby Shrimp Tempura with Spicy Mayo and Warm Ponzu Dipping Sauces.
Next up we had Squid Kara-Age with Jalapeno Dipping Sauce which were equally tasty and this place produces some of the best dips I have ever tried.
The dish we scoffed down the quickest were these Pork Belly Buns (the softest pork belly ever) and the crunchy peanut dip made this our favourite dish, the sweet potato fries rounded it up beautifully.
So this Soft Shell Crab Tempura Maki with Kimchee Mayo dish had some strong competition but it passed with flying colours, in fact it was one of the best maki I've had in a while.
The chef behind all this is ex-Nobu head-chef Scott Hallsworth and he and his team produce some seriously delicious Asian food with a twist. I was really blown away by the cool and laid back atmosphere of Kurobuta. It's located in Chelsea so it isn't cheap but you are served with beautiful and creative dishes and it makes it the perfect treat. Make sure to book a table as it gets quite busy even during the week.

Just a quick hello and I hope you all having a great day. This is another post from when I stayed in Germany (Bamberg). I'm wearing my favourite Gap jumper and these cool mint trousers from Guess, which make this outfit a little more spring appropriated.

Denim on Denim is one of my favourite combos and it was the perfect attire for strolling around Soho. Love the wide display of flowers around London by my favourite one has to be the one at Liberty's.
This weekend I have reached 3k followers on Instagram, which I'm really excited about it and thank you so much for your sweet comments.

I'm loving this cute H&M bracelet which reminds me a little bit of the beautiful Hermes one, which I'm lusting over for quite a few years now but this is just a pretty. For Dinner we went to one of our favourite Thai restaurants in town, Patara and I guess I will just let the pictures do the talking.
I have put my blog forward to the Company Style Blogger Awards and it would mean the world to me if you would vote for me (click here).
