Integrate

Today I’m integrating one of my favourite George pieces (Biker jacket) with my existing wardrobe.  I think a biker jacket is an absolute must for anyone’s wardrobe and it’s certainly staple for me (as you may have noticed!).  I’ve teamed it with my new Victoria Beckham boyfriend jeans (Thanks Coggles!) and a simple Topshop knit with the occasional accessory.  It’s an easy casual outfit so I added some black suede courts just to give ‘umph’ to the look although for running around the city I’d probably swap those for my Nike Free Runs or Converse.

Oversize

So we’re on Day 2 of my takeover with George at Asda and today I’ve gone for this rather slouchy, boho vibe.  This over-sized floral shirt is perfect for layering over jeans or leggings if you’re that way inclined.  The print is so pretty and perfect for this season and best of all the shirt is chiffon and bat-winged…thus meaning lightweight and airy on the old armpits (oh yes!).  These boyfriend jeans are some of the best that I’ve seen on the high street as they really are a boy fit, none of this high waisted ‘mom’ fit nonsense.  They come as full length jeans but I’ve turned them up so I could pop on  pair of heels and just polish the look slightly.  I don’t go anywhere without keeping a pair of flats with me so these super-comfy jeweled sandals are perfect for a quick change in this summer heat when one feels the need to dash up and down the tube escalators.  Please note, I don’t partake in this kind of activity for fun, I’m just always rushing to get somewhere

In The Fringe

Who says you need to be festival bound to wear a cocktail of crochet and fringing?!  I spotted this incredible top on a member of Topshop staff in the Oxford Street branch last week and dragged my friend Charlotte off in search of it.  It’s pretty pricey (£65) for something that is essentially made of holes but it does have leather patches all over it which have clearly bumped up the price.  It’s got great movement in the long fringe trim and is light enough for hot summer days so all round a perfect summer staple!

Flourish

Today’s post a little later than usual but I’ve spent the afternoon filming a ‘Lookbook’ for YouTube.  The theme will be florals for summer and this outfit will be included.  As normal my outfit posts will go up every weekday but then I plan on doing a round-up of these outfits in the form of a YouTube video Lookbook.  This will be my first one just to trial and see how it goes as I do get requests to do video lookbooks quite often.  I plan on uploading the finished edit of the video next week around Wednesday time so please do head over to my current YouTube channel, as bare as it is right now, to subscribe and catch my video when it goes live 🙂

Boy

As I’m going on holiday again, unfortunately I will be missing the SS15 Mens Collections in London (15th -17th June).  It’s great to see so many women rocking the androgynous trend at these shows and this season will be no different.  There will be some great style inspiration for AW14 as masculine dressing was seen all over the place at Fashion Weeks back in February.  Masculine dressing is easy what with the rise of the ‘boyfriend fit’ (tees, jeans, blazers!) so it doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to wear mens clothing.  That said I’m a huge fan of using mens pieces in my looks and I find some great menswear in Primark in particular their shirts!  I’m a UK size 10 so I buy their smallest sized oxford shirt (ranging from £3) and it fits perfectly, just the right amount of ‘baggy’.  You can also find some great mens bargains in the sales, one of my faves is the ASOS sale where you can usually pick up some pretty jazzy stuff.  For Boyfriend jeans (ladies) I always head to Bershka (seen in this post) and Zara as I find they have the best fit and they last forever!  Normally for accessories, I simply steal them from my other half!
