Hi all! Today I am happy to be blogging this beautiful jumpsuit I purchased from H&M. I recommend that everybody goes out to their closest H&M store and grabs one before they sell out. No really, this piece is such a great staple item for your autumn winter wardrobe. I love everything about it, the fit; the colour; the texture; it really is a great piece. It is made of a lyocell mix and it is so soft to the touch and super comfortable. I threw on my little black leather boots from River Island and I really felt that this simple outfit had a modern artisan feel to it. The jumpsuit with its long sleeves looks slightly like overalls that mechanics wear haha, and the colour gives it a sort of industrial feel.
Hi guys! So here it is, my very first new season post. Tailoring is a trend that I am really enjoying for AW14. I am going to invest in lots of suits and blazers and smart shirts for this season as I think it is such a great look. I also want to try out 70’s style tailored outfits, inspired by things I have seen in magazines. You can go for more fitted feminine looks or oversized androgynous styles which are great to play around with. Todays suited and booted look is made from this super-affordable blazer I bought from H&M and some high-waisted black tapered trousers that I lived in last autumn. Black blazers are a real staple piece, they go with everything and smarten up any outfit. I turned up the bottom of my trousers for a more wearable style and put on my slip-on mules to complete the look. I am thinking of starting up a pinterest or tumblr with all the things I see that inspire me and my outfit choices. If this is something you think you would be interested in seeing then please let me know! Have a great week xx
Hi everyone. I am uploading my very last summer post today. I have clung onto summer styling as long as physically possible but I think it is now time to accept that the new season is upon us. Therefore next week my blog will be updated with more autumnal pieces, I am really excited to show you all the new season pieces I have purchased recently. This post was also taken in Mexico, we found a really cool derelict building on the beach not far from our hotel and it created really scenic back drop for these images. This look is an all-white ensemble, again playing around with creating my own make-shift two piece. I am wearing another FYT&Co bag that I recieved and I have to say that it made the most perfect airport bag. It features the same design and colours as my tote bag in the previous post and what I loved about using it as an airport bag is its functionality. The outside zip compartment actually detaches and so it was great for having your important bits to hand in just seconds by putting them in this section. Again it is great quality and has a real fun, almost retro feel to it. You could change this outfit into a more suitable piece for the coming season by wearing white jeans instead of a skirt and adding a white duster coat for a real statement look.
I just want to say thank you for all your lovely comments and I apologise for not responding but I have broken my laptop and so typing on my ipad is really difficult to do. Hopefully my laptop will be sorted soon so I can build up that communication again! Thank you for reading my blog and make sure you look back this time next week for my first autumn post!
Hi guys! I am posting another holiday outfit today from my time in Mexico. Oh my do I wish i was back there now. Just look at that beach! The sea was so blue and so clear and the sand was white as white. Cancun really is a stunning place and it has lots to offer in terms of activities. During my stay I swam with dolphins which was a truly brilliant experience, those creatures are unbelievably clever and cute. I visited a water park and we went to this park called Xplor where you can ride on ziplines that are 150ft in the air; raft and swim through caves; and race around in ATVs. I really recommend this trip if you are going. On our last night we were also able to release these baby turtles into the sea which was a great thing to do. I named mine Antonio after a waiter in our hotel and it was so cute watching it flap it’s way towards the sea and then get swept off by its first experience of a wave. I still wonder how that little mite is getting on! Ha! Simply relaxing is perfect in Cancun though, with a stunning beach like this you could never get bored of lounging around.
So today’s post is some beach wear inspiration. I really do like an all-in-one swimsuit at the moment. They are much better for swimming in as you don’t have to worry about losing anything ha. I really liked this one shoulder, black, cut out suit from H&M. The only trouble with it is that you would get terrible tan lines if you wore it too long in the sun. I styled my swimsuit with this beautiful long, black kimono from Missguided which looked really nice. There is something about wearing black on the beach which looks really cool. Both products are of great quality and the kimono would also look great styled for daytime or evening wear so you may see it again on my blog in the future. I am wearing a bag I was given by FYT & Co from their SS14 collection. This tote became my ultimate beach essential and I have a matching rucksack which served as a great airport bag too which will be featured next week. FYT & Co pride themselves on their Britishness and colourful aesthetic. I really love the contrast of the neutral simplistic design against the vibrant bold design. And the quality is really good, take a look online at their new season products at fytandco.com. I also wore these with my black Birkenstocks but when my sister tried to take a nice shot of them on the beach a wave came up and swept them away, and after retrieving them they didn’t look so nice so we gave up haha. Check back next week for my final holiday post which will also be my last summer post as I introduce new season wear! I have so many great bits to show you.
Hola! After two beautiful weeks in glorious Cancun I am feeling really refreshed and motivated to cling onto the last bit of the summer season and provide you with a few holiday outfit posts. Firstly I would like to just say that if you are thinking about heading to Mexico on vacation any time soon then definitely get out there. I feel so lucky to have gone. Mexico is such a stunning and warm hearted country. As soon as you arrive you are greeted with outstanding hospitality and their kind and helpful nature isn’t just part of the travel service it seems like it is built naturally within their culture. We found ourselves a little lost one day after venturing out to a market but a local approached us and walked us to the correct bus stop to get home, a good quarter mile away, just out of the goodness of his heart. Mexico is so beautiful with clear blue seas, white sand and a host of lovely buildings. I could go on for a while about my stay but I will spread it across my three holiday posts. If you have any questions then please do ask me!
My outfit is slightly gothic for a holiday ensemble but it can sometimes feel quite nice to go for a darker pallet in such a bright and beautiful country. I decided to create a make shift two piece using a couple of faux leather items in my wardrobe and I think it looked pretty cool. Sometimes you have to think outside the box and try things together that you are not too sure about as sometimes the outcome can surprise you. I am in love with this River Island V-neck top, I wasn’t able to link it online but you can still find it in store. I adore the clean cut and I think it is a great A/W piece to style as well. I also bought it in white so that will be styled on here soon with a more autumnal feel. I also have to make a quick comment on my little bracelet featured. I purchased this at a Mexican market and it has the Mayan astrology symbol on it which I liked, my sign is called Cimi the sign of death which I suppose is quite fitting for the look of this outfit post. If you look online you can find out your sign and its meaning! Look out for my next post this time next week!
Hey! Here is my latest Sunday post! I did not think I would get one up because of the horrific weather but my sister and I managed to run out and capture some images in between the outbreaks of rain. Just a little update before I move on to talk about my outfit; I am moving to London this week and I am super excited! I have always felt that I belong in a city where life is a bit livelier and what better city to go for than the fashion capital! I will be closer to work and it also means that attending blog events will be a lot easier too.
Today I have on this really pretty Kimono from New Look; kimonos have been huge this year and there have been so many stunning styles to choose from but this simple black crochet detailed kimono is one of my favourites as it will go with everything and it is really affordable. I would also like to get a floor length one from somewhere as they look great. I teamed my kimono with this lovely little frilled skirt which looks really feminine and summery. To complete the look I put on a simple grey crop top and these really simplistic sandals from Missguided that I adore.
Hi guys! Sorry for the delay in this post but I have some exciting times ahead as I am finally moving to London and have been preparing myself for this new chapter of my life. I am very excited! I would also like to say that my blog may have a complete transformation soon as I have a few new ideas up my sleeve! Today I am embracing trousers that are stepping back in time. These retro monochrome wide leg trousers from Boohoo are my new love! With a real 70’s flare influence these woven trousers are so perfect for summer, ultra comfortable and super trendy. The retro swirl print is really fun and looked best teamed with a simple cami and this summers shoe trend, the ugly Birkenstocks ha! I kept the look as minimal as possible as the trousers are pretty loud and I added my new cat eye sunglasses from Topshop. I have been hunting for the perfect sunnys for ages and finally settled on these ones which also came with a little sunglasses holder and cloth. Enjoy the rest of the sun!
