Double denim and clearly in the mood for monochromatic blue. I don't know if you can tell but the sweater i'm am wearing is also blue, navy blue in fact but for some reason it came out looking really dark in the pictures. I love wearing this Acne sweater during the Spring, it has a lot of padding and so it keeps me really warm, so much so, I don't have to wear a coat or jacket.
Whenever I am shooting inside, our doggies always love to get involved, usually I shoo them away but this time I let them in on it.
Take care lovelies,

I've enjoyed experimenting in layering skirts for the last couple of years and it seems that after viewing all the latest collections, that this layering concept is going to be mini trend to stay. I often like to integrate as much of my summer wardrobe into my winter one as possible, mainly to get the most out of my clothes and well, this cream/white maxi skirt of mine had certainly been on my mind for while.
I found that by teaming it with the heaver materials such as this wool mini skirt (currently on sale Here) and my leather leggings it created an interesting amount of textured depth whilst also keeping the necessary amount of warmth that my body needs. And by keeping the colour pallet somewhat light and neutral helped with the fluidity of the outfit. Though, I also thinks it's fun to add contrasting touches, like what i've done with the black against the white.
A couple of weeks ago I got asked how to dress for the rain and I thought I would show you a couple looks of the sorta thing I would wear myself, that hopefully others will like to. Each look has a different feel dependent on if the mood of mine/yours is minimal or a little more creative, in an attempt to show diversity for rainy day styling. I myself do struggle when it rains, knowing I have to ditch any other outfit plans I had and think of the top of my head, which I've said before is not something I feel comfortable with or am particular good at. I find a lot of the time the outfit I had originally planned to wear would be fine but it's the shoes, the shoes I tell ya that ruins it all and we all know it's not as easy as just switching to another pair because you know they don't look anywhere near as good, so if your anything like me you have to start all over again. GREAT!
So the best thing to do is go back to basics, take what you know works best in weather conditions such as these. A pair of Jeans, black boots, a sweater and jacket will do the job, right? Yes but a little boring and definitely predictable, so simply swap the plain jumper you were reaching for and go with comfy sweater with a cool motif on the front like this Brian Lichtenberg one and make like all those knowing bloggers and add a striking statement necklace for extra impact, as little details like this is will what set you apart from the rest.
For another Rainy day look, think of your favourite classic pieces such as your favourite crew neck sweater, that plaid shirt that you have had for years and your trusty biker boots and no don't style them with you tired skinnies, take that sequinned skirt that you save for christmas and chuck that into the mix. Of course you need some warmer finishing touches so I would suggest going with some black tights and then adding in some thick knee socks preferably in a richer colour, such as these burgundy socks by Flake and layer them over your tights but only letting them peek out the top of your boots. Simply finish your look of with a classic tailored coat. Not only will a look like this cheer you up on a dull rainy day but you might just put a smile on all the other miserable faces that pass you by, or at the very least a look of confusion of those less creative as lets face it there a quite a few but we must only sympathise and pray that just one day they might come across a copy of vogue. I'm just kidding, they probably have more "important" things to worry about they dressing for the rain.
Yes I avoided wellington boots but only because I personally don't own a pair (yet) and I wanted the post to be somewhat relatable to my own style and wardrobe. Also check out these very stylish umbrellas, that Mqueen one is soooo cool and yes VERY expensive to but I love them anyway!
Well I hope you like this post. Thank you and take care,
Wanting to take this Cos skirt through to Autumn seemed like it would be a challenge but I gave it ago anyway and this is how it ended up looking.
To give this skirt a unique and interesting spin I deceived to create some length play by teaming it with this Whistles grey, mid-length dress. I really liked the strong contrast in colours and to bond the two pieces together I once again borrowed my boyfriends Penfield jacket and just simply detached the sleeves. I also like how it bought an androgynous/ sporty tone to the outfit along with an unexpected edge, which I echoed with my Topshop backpack. To keep to the now apparent minimal with an edge theme I decided to wear my Alexander Wang shoes, at first I was worried about the grey on grey but looking at it now i'm glad I stuck with it. I also wore my Mqueen rings and just a simple chain bracelet.
For extra impact I went with my burgundy coloured lipstick. Don't take details like this for granted, you will be surprised at how a small detail like this can transform a look.
Anyway I hope you like this look and thank you for any lovely comments. Take care,
Apparently it's going to be quite a cold october, which I am not to pleased about as I love transeasonal dressing soooo much and if it's to cold I can wave bye bye to warm layers on top and bare legs with boots on the bottom but hopefully they have it all wrong. They normally do!
Anyway here is a look that includes this pretty awesome dress by House of Wilde that I received thanks to Life Lasting Pr and of course House of Wilde. I liked the dress for the reason it's not something I would typically choose and liked the idea of being challenged with styling it. Even though I had a few ideas in mind on how I wanted to style it, the main inspirational thought that sprung to mind was minimalism and tonal styling. Not only to echo those qualities that I feel the dress has but to also keep some focus on the cool criss cross detailing it has.
So I styled it with my off white cardigan to carry on those neutral tones along with my Alexander Wang shoes and my Illesteva sunglasses. My jewellery I kept simple and chose pieces that had minimal and edgy qualities, like my boyfriend old chain bracelet and my Alexander Mqueen rings.
I hope you all like this look. Thank you for any comments and take care,
