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.

Ahead Of Time

I‘ve already begun collecting my new AW14 wardrobe and in a slightly eager attempt to jump ahead to next season, I wore a jumper (Topshop) in 30 degrees.  It wasn’t smart and it wasn’t funny.  The trousers on the other hand (another AW14 purchase from Topshop) are perfect for this weather, the wide leg allows, errrrrrr, air circulation? Mmmm, yes, air cirulation!  They are my favourite culotte-esque length and they could well be a runner for a Fashion Week ensamble (Who knows!).  Now me mustn’t forget these monochrome shoes because they are might fine for a price tag of only £39!  Well done Miss Selfridge, well done!

Floral Grid

I‘ve always had a thing about stripes and florals.  Every time I wear something floral I instantly find myself search for a striped piece to fit into the ensemble somehow.  I got these floral check dungarees from Missguided last week and have been waiting for a slightly cooler day to wear them.  They are a lightweight fabric but with this heat I need to be wearing the bare minimum amount of fabric.

Summer In The City

I don’t think I’ll be the only Londoner to be moaning about the heat right now.  Friday was an absolute sweaty wash-out for me.  I went to Shoreditch to the Ace Hotel for an awards brunch with Asos Fashion Finder and Urban Outfitters.  The temperature got up to something crazy like 34 degrees, and normally I’d be enjoying the heat, but when your in London it’s not so enjoyable, especially when it comes to our public transport (always crammed under someone’s sweaty armpit…vom!).  I wore this cute new season coord from New Look as I knew it would keep me as cool as I could get because of the lightweight fabric.  It’s fair to say I lost the jacket half way through the day as the heat was just too much.  In the evening I was treated (By Claires Accessories) to an amazing open air concert to watch Sam Smith perform in the courtyard at Somerset House.  Again this was the perfect casual outfit for a gig!

Today’s Lookbook theme is Summer Florals and there are 4 outfits in total.  The first 2 outfits you will recognise from last weeks posts, I will always post stills of each outfit featured in a video because there will be some of you that prefer that media, so I’m catering for all.  There are product links to the items featured in the video below so if there’s anything you just luuuuuurve, you can purchase those by clicking through the links.  If you want to know what equipment I used to film & edit then this info is stated below.

Floral Re-Mix

Exciting day today as I’m heading off to go and shoot my alternative version of the Christmas Lookbook with River Island.  It does feel slightly odd that I’ll be donning faux fur, sequins and all number of Autumn/Winter outfits when it’s 30 degrees outside, but hey, it’s Christmas in July as we bloggers know it.  
Today’s outfit is yet another from the floral Lookbook that I’ve shot and just demonstrates how much I love mixing prints.  Florals and animal print do actually compliment each other and obviously (despite the temperature) I will always add a touch of leather!

So Fancy

I have some amazing news today!  I was nominated for an ASOS Fashion Finder Award a few weeks back and yesterday I found out that I won!!!  The award I was up for was for ‘Working the Trends’ and I’m so honored to be selected as the winner as I do love my trends 🙂  Check out the other award winners and runners-up here on the Fashion Finder website.  This is my first award as a blogger and after almost 6 years of blogging it really is a pleasure to receive.  I’m not all about awards, I love to see tweets, emails, comments etc from you  guys hearing that you enjoy my blog and that makes all the hard work worth while…but this is a welcome treat for me 🙂
