Back in the Hoodie Game

DSC_0785
I hope you enjoy this post because these are truly some of my favourite photos posted here on the blog. 

I’m not a fan of tracksuits, especially when the option of yoga pants exists. However, I have recently rediscovered the appeal of wearing hoodies.

A French Night Out

DSC_0651
For anyone who knows me, it will come as no surprise that I like to mainly sport casual looks. I would pick flats over heels most days, although I think heels look better 90% of the time, I’m the biggest fan of comfortable pieces and I like to stick to my basics. However, on the other hand, I love dressing up every once in a while and looking like I actively put effort into my outfits. Therefore...

How To Style Pyjamas During The Day

DSC_0666
I enjoy few things more than rolling out of bed straight into the office in the mornings. A pyjama might not be the first thing one would wear as a daytime outfit, but it can most definitely be that. Keep reading to see how a pyjama can be worn to run errands at the weekend, make waffles in the morning or even jet ski in California.

The Underrated HOT Accessory of the Summer

DSC_0725-side
I think it’s safe to say the straw bag wins the prize of summer’s most popular accessory. Unless you have been living under a rock or don't have an Instagram account (which in today's world is pretty much living under a rock) you will already be aware of the fact that everyone who thinks they’re anyone owns a straw bag in some shape or form. 

Although I totally get the appeal of a straw bag (I mean let's be real, it maintains the illusion that you're walking on the beach in the South of France even if you are actually just dragging yourself to work on a rainy Monday morning in London and Harper's Bazaar has written about it) I think that a massive contender to the title has been overlooked.

I Hope You Can't See My Nipples

DSC_0578
When I was young I used to be fascinated by anything new in stores. Whenever Zara brought out a fresh collection, I instantly had to buy something to have a shiny, new piece in my wardrobe.

For the last year however, I have been gravitating more and more towards hand me downs and vintage clothing.

Normand Flair

YsncZxv
The past few weeks have been pretty hectic. I don't say that in a bad way though, as they have consisted of my birthday, the start of summer, travelling and some exciting things at work. With all the running around though, I have had little time to get inspired. In a way, I find it funny because by just living my life, I haven't had time to take a breath and think of my blog or the outfits I want to wear and shoot, I have just been wearing whatever I want to and went on with my days. 

Two weekends ago however, I took a short weekend trip to beautiful Normandy and completely fell in love. The perfect little getaway, less than an hour away from London, Normandy completely charmed me and made me feel refreshed. Here I featured a few photos kindly taken by a lovely friend, just before we stuffed our faces with an amazing dinner. In the end, I ditched the heels and put my flat sandals on, there was no point in being pretentious there.

Feeling new and refreshed, I am now in the search for some inspiration. What are your best ways of fighting an inspiration lull?

Why The Right Pair of White Jeans Is The Most Elusive Piece of Clothing Out There

DSC_0349
It’s been over a year since I have been looking for the ‘just right’ pair of white jeans. I have trawled both the high street and the high end hoping I would come across a high waisted, straight, butt-hugging pair of sleeves for my legs with no avail. It seems likely that in a year I would find that pair somewhere, right?

Wrong.

Gucci or Hot Dogs?

DSC_0217
There's nothing better than Spring knocking your way, especially when you can wear your Gucci lookalike shoes from New Look (similar on sale HERE). 

Potentially the best dupes I've seen in a while, alongside the Ego version of the Gucci Princetown loafers, these New Look mules look exactly like the Gucci ones that filled our news feeds a few months ago.

As these are such trend pieces, I couldn't get myself to spend £400 on them quite yet so I was happy to score this lookalike bargain in an ASOS sale in February. The sun came out at the perfect time last week too, as having had these for 3 months already I was starting to itch to wear them out. Also, before you judge me for my poor choice in shoe sizes I know it might look like it in the photo above, but these mules are not too small for me, I just have wide feet and forgot to tuck them in far enough in the shoes. Please don't judge and see below.

However, this outfit also works well with Converse and it wouldn't be me if I didn't showcase a casual version of it. A pair of Gucci loafers would go really well too but Ego haven't come out with the black version with no fur yet....

The Easiest DIY You'll Ever Come Across

DSC_0185
The other week, whilst browsing Amazon for a flower brooch inspired by this Man Repeller post, I came across a very different pair of daisy hair clips/brooches that straight away inspired me to write this post.

I'm Welcoming Colour Back in My Life

DSC_1453
In a previous post back in December, I let my boyfriend choose my outfit and got sent straight out of my comfort zone. He not only dressed me in colour, he colour-blocked. Back then I very much lived in my neutral palette of all-black with a pinch of grey so I was very uncomfortable in this new territory.

1 Item, 5 Days: The Silk Scarf

Hey there. Here I am with another instalment of 1 Item, 5 Days, this time unpacking the many uses of a silk scarf. If you’re a white t-shirt and jeans kinda’ individual like me, you will appreciate the power of a good accessory. A pair of statement earrings, a fedora hat or a colourful silk scarf can completely change that basic pairing turning it from drab to fab (sorry, I had to).

As a lover of basic silhouettes, I previously ventured in illustrating how versatile a t-shirt dress can be and how it can morph into 5 different outfits. This time however, I talk about how a simple scarf can spice up your outfits in 5 different ways and as usual, will take you through my week wearing it. So let's get started.
