To be honest I wasn't sure if I was going to upload these photos or not but here I am doing so. I thought they were a little different to my usual photos, which is why, in the end I decided to just do it and now i'm happy I did.
No bright colours, no uncomfortable styles, instead I just kept simple, streamline and of course comfortable! Which ultimately leaves me feeling my most confident. What style of clothing makes you feel confident?
It's black and white, it's stripy and silky, it can be worn as a light jacket or your favourite easy-chic blouse, yes of course i'm talking about my 3.1 Phillip stripy something. I love this piece and with it not being long until the weather takes a chillier turn, i'm already thinking of ways I can incorporate it into my Autumn/Winter wardrobe because my lovelies, I simply can not imagine my little stylish world without it.
But for now, whilst the temps are still up, wearing the jacket as a pyjama-esque blouse, with my midi skirt and sandals, perfectly reflects my effort-less state of mind. I have to say I did enjoy rekindling my love affair with these round frame sunglasses, it's been a while my Chanel lovelies!
Well I hope you all like the look and thank you for reading.
It's got to that time where I am desperately craving a new bag, I don't own that many or at least thats how I feel, they aren't something I buy that often because it takes a lot for me to like and buy a bag, I really have to fall in love with it and think about it day and night. Here are some bags that have been on my mind recently and especially this khaki green Givenchy Obsedia clutch-bag, AHHH BE MINE! And with my birthday not that far into the horizon, i'm hoping that someone like, I don't know, The boyfriend/ my mum/ anyone who's feeling generous will read this post and give me a very Happy Birthday indeed :D
It's been a while since I last wore these navy flared trousers, they are by Diane von Furstenberg and like all (all meaning, like 3 or 4) the pieces I own of hers, the fit and cut is exceptional. What I love about these trousers is that I don't need to wear them all the time, though I easily could because I love them so much and they are of course versatile but I don't, as they are a classic and i'm sure they won't ever date, so I find there is no need to exhaust them. Instead I just sit back and wait for the right outfit to come to mind.
For this look the idea was fairly simple, with just an old loose fitting grey sweater, my old leather jacket, a piece I am really quite into again at the moment and my cropped furry jacket worn over the top, as combining textures such as these, is great way to add interesting detail and depth to a fairly simple look. I wore my Alexander Wang shoes, as they have this orange trim around the edges which was just enough to add a subtle hint of colour and I also find the trousers fall perfectly when styled with them. To finish the outfit I wore my Illesteva sunnies because they felt a little more unexpected then my Ray Bans. Aw and I have to say I kinda miss my hair looking like this, as these photos were taken before I went to PFW and since then I have had a few highlights put into my hair but oh well, I'll give it time and they'll grow out again. :)
Hope you like this look lovelies and take care,

A couple of weeks ago the christmas lights got switched on in my town and it's an event that I look forward to every year. It's nothing spectacular as it's just a small town but it's important and special to me like I am sure it is to others in the town. Though we were close to not having any at all due to lack of funding but luckily all the shops pulled together and with the help from my friend Jake it happened, not that the local council gave him any thanks but at least he knows and those around him know that he was a big help.
Finding something to wear was fun, as the crazy Christmas lady inside me wanted to go full on with a Christmas themed outfit, maybe even get me some of those awesome flashing earrings. Ohh Yeah! Thankfully for my sake and my boyfriend and sisters sake who I went with, I didn't. No instead I stuck with my go-to casual combo of my favourite skinnies with my Ash biker boots. I then wore my Topshop oxblood sweater and teamed it with my DKNY furry jacket, finished of with my charcoal grey scarf and my old old old Jack Wills Christmasy beanie. And that my lovelies is my Christmas light switch on look, what do you think?
Thank you and look forward to reading your comments. Take care,
