A Dash of Pink

Saturday, 3 December 2016


As a pretty 'neutral' dresser, bright pink is quite a rare occurrence in my wardrobe. Yes, I wear the odd dash of pale pink here and there but with a more adventurous colour like this beautiful bright pink buttery leather jacket from Ego Soleil, it's important to tone it down elsewhere.


Jacket | Ego Soleil (launching SS17)
Trousers | Weekday (similar)
Jumper | Zara (grey version)
Shoes | Office (similar)
Bag | Zara

Quality is extremely important to me so when I was introduced to New York's Ego Soleil (launching SS17) by a friend of mine, I was immediately drawn to this beautifully-crafted leather jacket. It's the perfect piece to add a bit of fun into winter dressing and by simply adding a chunky turtleneck underneath it can can take you right through into the chillier months. Layering is key!

Black Friday: The Edit

Friday, 25 November 2016


Let's be honest here, Black Friday is pretty annoying. The discount day following Thanksgiving in the US that snuck into the UK and somehow turned into a whole week stuffed full of hundreds of shopping deals - it normally make me want to hide under a rock.

Clashing Houndstooth

Sunday, 20 November 2016



Jacket | H&M
Skirt | Zara (similar)
Top | Topshop
Shoes | Mango
Bag | Zara


There's nothing I love more than a good old clash. And by clash, I'm talking about an unexpected and contradictory pairing. This band tee from Topshop is a couple of years old and since rediscovering it in my wardrobe last month I've not taken it off. I love how pairing a band tee with a traditional check such as this wool-mix houndstooth blazer from H&M can turn something 'Grandpa' into something a little more fiery!

The Vinyl Trench

Saturday, 12 November 2016


The new Archive by Alexa collection is here! After acquiring one too may frilly shirts from the last collection, I couldn't wait to get my hands on a few wintery styles this time around... As soon as I spotted Alexa wearing this trench during London Fashion Week I just knew it was going to be the star.

Shop my top picks from the collection below:




I'm wearing:

Jeans | Levis (vintage - similar)
Top | H&M
Shoes | Zara

Patent, vinyl, PVC? Call it what you want but I'm obsessed! Zara and Mango have some amazing pieces in store right now. Just remember to tone everything else down when styling to soften the look - that's denim, heavy knits and flats.

Happy weekend by the way! I've spent my day trying to navigate my way around Oxford Circus, dodging hundreds of umbrellas and tourists... Never again! Tomorrow's plan? Snuggling on the sofa, tea, walks on the common and cooking a Sunday roast. I can't wait to share a little flat tour soon - it's looking perfectly homely.

The Shearling Returns

Tuesday, 25 October 2016


I'm happy because it's now cold enough to snuggle up in jumpers and my favourite shearling jacket. Don't get me wrong, I do hate the cold as much as you do, but I find joy in layering up and playing around with textures and cosy fabrics.





I'm wearing:

Jacket | Topshop (similar)
Jeans | Levis (vintage - similar)
Top | Topshop
Shoes | Mango

This shearling jacket was undoubtedly my star purchase from January's winter sales and although it got a teeny bit of action in the earlier months, I've secretly been counting down the days until I could wear it again. Unfortunately it's no longer available, but Mango have produced a really similar style. The denim is vintage - I chopped and frayed the hems as I love the slight flare on this pair. I found a really similar cut on Topshop here.

The Apartment SS17

Saturday, 15 October 2016


Every season I look forward to The Apārtment, especially when it comes down to seeing what new look they go for; it's the ultimate place to hunt for interior inspiration. If you're unaware... The Apārtment is the primary location for professional influencers during London Fashion Week. The space has been specifically designed for bloggers to recharge their batteries between shows, work, eat and mingle with likeminded individuals.

This season, The Apārtment teamed up with DFS to fill the room with comfy, stylish sofas


Sofas from DFS.

The central Soho location meant it was super easy to pop in and out when our schedule allowed. Georgia and I were able to stop by between presentations, have a bite to eat and even monogram an Aspinal of London clutch with our initials (it's true loveeeeee).

 We were lucky enough to enjoy brunch with Ego on the Sunday morning - the Aubaine croissants and juices went down a treat. Oh, I know you're probably wondering where the cute little dusty pink cushions are from too. They're from H&M Home and yes, I've already made the purchase for my own flat - don't they look amazing against the indigo sofa?

I couldn't believe it when Abi told us that the sofas were from DFS, they looked so incredibly luxurious and brought the room to life. They chose a palette of grey, mauve and indigo fabric sofas, exuding style and comfort (warning: you'll never get back up once you've sat down - refer to second and fifth images). Thankfully, The Apartment organised one of their Hyundai cars to take us to the Phoebe English presentation; the only thing stopping me from munching on sweets and watching the shows live from the projected screen all afternoon.

See what I wore on day three here.

This post is in collaboration with DFS.

Autumn Whites

Thursday, 13 October 2016


So it's come to that point, mid-October, when we have to dig out our coats from storage and cherry pick which styles to take forward into the new season (and rehome those that need to go. Luckily I still absolutely adore all of my coats - I can't reinforce the importance of buying outerwear that can stand the test of time, but more of that another time).




I'm wearing:

Coat | Ganni
Jeans | Acne Studios
Shoes | Sandro
Tee | Whistles
Bag | Sandro (similar)

It would be difficult, however, not to pick up one or two new styles... I've got black, camel, grey, shearling and teddy coats nailed, but I realised I was missing something checked. You're going to be seeing a lot of check, tweed and houndstooth this season, but not as you may expect. Traditional tweeds and houndstooth styles have been given a fashion makeover - just look to Balenciaga's AW16 structured peplum jacket for example.

Danish brand Ganni has been on my radar ever since my last purchase... Does something orange ring any bells? I think they produce such quality, fashion-forward pieces for a fraction of a designer price tag. Seeing as I'm not quite yet ready to let go of summer, I thought I'd give my Acne denim and Sandro shoes one of their last outings. Goodbye summer!
