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!

Sorbet Surroundings

Yesterday I went and had a catch up with the lovely Charlotte and after a spot of impromptu shopping in Topshop (Ox St) we had a bit of lunch and went off to Portobello Road.  These houses give me fond memories of watching Mary Poppins as a little whipper snapper but now in this modern day they’ve been given a ice cream makeover.  There are rows and rows of these pastel coloured houses, they’re a bloggers dream and just another reason why this magnificent city has my heart.

Leather & Sheer

I wore this outfit last week to a party held by ASOS (#EpicSummer) and therefore it was only polite to wear ASOS (Dress)!  I bought this dress a couple of months back with a voucher they sent me, but like most things it went straight into my wardrobe and seemed to be forgotten about.  On the day of the party it just seemed to shout at me from within the dark and cramped conditions of the vast vessel that is my wardrobe.  Don’t judge me for wearing flats to a party, as you all well know, flats for me are a rarity but this was a summer garden party kinda theme so these Dune Jolene slides were the perfect partners for my dress.

Discovery

I‘ve made a new discovery in the land of denim, SOS Jeans!  It’s an Italian brand and recently I was gifted with these gorgeous pale grey floral skinnies from their SS14 collection.  They are, as the brands mission statement suggests, the perfect fit!  I love ankle grazers and these are the perfect length, they huge my legs without constricting them, and they have great, errrr, butt support 🙂  Along with a few patterned designs they also create classic styles, I’m in love with their ‘Light X-Fit Denim Okinawa’ jeans which like the ones in this post are ankle grazer, skinny leg, bottom lifter and low waist…..just perfect!

Sequin Stripes

I‘m getting in the slightly nautical mood because tomorrow I’m off on what I keep calling ‘a cruise’…it’s not a cruise, it’s simply a boat trip on the Thames.  I’m not going to Barbados…sadly.  Yep I’m off on a boat for an event to showcase the new Coleen Rooney range with Very.com.  It’s very exciting and such a great idea for an event location as I do believe the range is swimwear, perfect timing for my holiday then!  Anywho, stay tuned to my Instagram & Twitter tomorrow evening as I board the great Erasmus and cruuuuuise off down the Thames.  Ahoy!

Breaking News!  I have started the ‘Squat Challenge’!  Yes…me!  The weekend’s glorious news that I’m going on my first holiday in 5 years in May prompted me to start this famed Squat Challenge in an attempt to get my bikini body up to scratch.  Perhaps we might want to revisit this topic in say a couple of days and see if I’ve actually stuck to it (doubtful).  I’m also doing the sit up challenge and let me tell you, this exercise shizzle is no walk in the park.
Oh and yes I know it’s too cold for shorts but obviously my outfit posts are shot in advance and when I shot this it wasn’t anywhere as near as baltic as it is now.  Brrrrrrrr….It’s cold in here, there must be some Torros in the atmosphere….hands up if you remember that film #ClassicTeenyBopper

Guess Access Blogger

As some of you may know I am part of the Guess Access Blogger network and this is my first post for them.  You can check it out fully on the Guess Watches blog here.  I’ve always love Guess watches because there are so many styles to choose from and they make a cracking boyfriend style sports watch.  I was sent this silver and rose gold tone beauty and it’s so versatile, it can be worn with silver and rose gold jewellery which is a bonus and it’s great as a day to night piece.  Stay tunned for more Guess Access news and don’t forget my make-up video will be up on the 19th of this month and I can’t wait to share that with you!
