Oui, Non?

I'm wearing:

Tee | L'ecole Des Femmes via Urban Outfitters
Jeans | Vintage Levi's (Similar)
Shoes | Topshop

This week, I'm back to the slogan tee! This one is by L'ecole Des Femmes, a part-French and part-LA brand, inspired by my upcoming trip to Paris tomorrow. I purchased mine through Urban Outfitters, but there are different variations on their own site here. All you need to do is pair with some vintage high-waisted denim and voila. Next up, I'm after a piece from Maison Labiche - slogan tees done in the most elegant way!

Archive by Alexa | Part II

I'm wearing:

Dress | M&S Archive by Alexa
Shoes | Whistles

So here's part two of the Archive by Alexa collection. My Mum surprised me by getting me two further pieces to add to my collection (see how I styled the shirt here) - one being the pink version of the shirt, and the other; this dress.

It's a bit girlier than I'd normally go for, but I've always had a thing for Paisley and I love the primary colour tones in this print rather than anything too 'pinky'. I wore it to the Private View of my Degree Show last week which leads me to my next bit of news... I found out I've achieved a First Class Honours in Fashion Marketing from the University of Southampton! I'm chuffed to bits and it shows that hard work really does pay off! Celebration time!


Soleil d'Été

I was dreaming of the French Riviera and Amalfi Coast until last week's English heatwave sprung upon us (I would however, LOVE a pool to dip my toes into. Oh, and the above swimsuit please). Amalfi is definitely on my list of summer plans for 2017. But for now, I'll be packing these pieces for Bali next month with a month's stop off along Australia's East Coast! 

Please comment below with any recommendations in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Byron, Cairns and basically ALL of Bali! I'd love to hear from you!

Gingham Ruffles

I'm wearing:

Skirt | Monki (c/o)
Top | Asos
Bag | Chloé
Shoes | Topshop

Last week I was very lucky to be invited down to IPR's Summer Gifting Suite to select some new summer pieces. My eyes were immediately drawn to this gingham ruffled beauty on the rail and when I discovered it was Monki I was completely blown away! I've kept my eyes open for a really cool gingham midi ever since I spotted a mass of checked ruffles at the Isa Arfen SS16 presentation in New York last year. Victoria Beckham's SS16 collection also featured monochrome gingham but in slightly sleeker silhouettes... If you're after something a little more budget, then let me point you towards Mango and Asos, who have created some perfect little pieces for your summer wardrobe (you can shop my edit below).

I've dressed the skirt down with my favourite Asos ribbed top (with matching frills, ofc) and these Topshop sliders that haven't yet come off my feet! P.S. They are only £22 (and real leather too!)

The Denim Mini

I'm wearing:

Denim Mini | Topshop
Tee | Ganni
Boots | Office

This season's denim mini has scrapped the buttons up the centre and is all about that 90s vintage feel. I ordered this from Topshop in hope that it was a light-wash denim (it's so difficult to figure out the shade online) but was delighted to see the perfect shade beneath the packaging.

Paired with a simple graphic tee (mine's from Ganni), it becomes that desired 'throw-on' ensemble, perfect for those 'in-between' days in June.

Hello Freedom

I'm wearing:

Shirt | & Other Stories
Jeans | Vintage Levi's
Bag | Chloé

So I've finished my degree, graduation is on the horizon and I'm officially free of education! I'm currently planning the summer of dreams... Who knows what the rest of the year holds but I do know that I'm going to be blogging to my heart's content!


Orange Sundays

Tee | Ganni
 Denim Cut-offs | Levi's
Leather Belt | H&M

I don't know about you but fruit prints = summer. As soon as I put on this soft cotton number from Ganni it gave me such a summery feeling. I still have this vintagey-print lemon high-waisted bikini from American Apparel a few years back and it's still my favourite. It's similar to the Dolce and Gabanna SS16 collection; there's just something about painted fruit that I love. They seem to be sold out at the moment so keep an eye out for the banana and cherry variations too.
