suede & lyocell

Posted by Unknown On 21:27 0 comments
When I've had a bad day at work, I tend to try and make myself feel better on the way back home through Brixton by stopping off in H&M and trying things on - it only makes me happy until I realise I haven't got a single penny to spend on myself these days... being a grown up in London SUCKS by the way!  

I'm loving the suede imitation shorts they have in at the moment, a ridiculous bargain at £7.99 - I thought about picking them up for my holiday to Costa Blanca this weekend but I think I'm well over my kg limit already.. Definitely worth heading back for after payday though! 

I'm a massive fan of H&M and I always have been, I spent 4 years of my life working/growing up there so it's safe to say a small piece of my heart still lives on; their conscious collection always manages to come up trumps and this season I spotted the lyocell shirt, despite its baggy nature not complimenting my figure at all I fell in love with its all good natural fibre being. Lastly I spotted these white leather trainers for £49.99 (when I flipped the tag to see the price, the instant doom of no more staff discount hit me *cries!*) 

Do you like any of the pieces I picked up?

double denim

Denim is absolutely everywhere right now. To be fair it always has been, but now we're noticing it more than ever. With the Seventies trend in full swing this season it's time to do denim or don't, and I most definitely am 'doing'. There isn't an outfit I feel safer in that a pair of trusty Levi skinnies and an vintage mens shirt. It's the right amount of casual and still looks cool. Amirite?

To break up the double blue hue I added my statement Boohoo brogues, both comfortable to wear and on trend for a stand-outish double denim look that can never be described as boring. A fedora is something I want to wear more often, there's something so chic about it and it transforms any summer look. Yet, there is something about hoping onto the bus to Elephant and Castle at 8am on my way to work doesn't quite understand it! Which is why it's my headwear of choice at the weekend on a day like today, I'm off to Westfields with the boyfriend. Shopping a la hat. Note to self: make friends with the iron.

Get my look:

Levis Runaway skinny jeans in retro indigo - £65
Boohoo Alana pewter brogues (old)

Things I’m pining this week. #1

Posted by Unknown On 00:43 0 comments

Lately I’ve been feeling as if all the creative veins in my body have been sucked out. Despite being on social media all day long, the only platform I’ve found to be a source of inhaling that creativity back in is Pinterest. And right now it’s totally relatable. Welcome to my weekly addition of 'Things I'm Pining This Week' - a moodboard full of things I've pinned that I'm currently pining for. 

1. The gorgeous, Vanessa Ferlito, she popped up on my feed shortly after I watched Death Proof. Which was so so weird. For those that haven’t heard of it, it’s a Tarantino. Go figure, watch it – it’s on Netflix!
2. All I seem to be wearing at the moment is black turtlenecks. I can’t stop. Black black black and more. I’m starting to worry what I’ll be wearing in a months time, when it starts getting hot. Help?
3. Omelettes are becoming my go-to most mornings. I’ve mastered the art of egg, cheese and mushroom omelette (so skilled, I know) and now I can’t stop eating it! Especially with avocado. Seriously, try it.
4. Costa blanca. aka the first holiday I’m going to have in 10 years. TEN YEARS! I jet off in 16 days and I fully can’t even wait. It’s going to be so good. I’ve mentally booked my next holiday before I’ve even started this one.
5. Je suis plus amoureux que jamais. Je ai lui merci. Soppy.
6. Forever umming and arring about the chop! I know I’ll regret it, I ALWAYS do. But there are so many good looking people with bobs on Pinterest these days that I just can’t help pining for, and pinning.
Who do you follow on Pinterest?
