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!

Lace Love

Sorry for the lateness of today’s post but I was out shooting it in Knightsbridge this afternoon, yet again in the blistering London heat…hence the iced Starbucks in hand!  This lace bralet from Topshop had a lot of love on Instagram so I thought I’d use it in a post to show you how I would style it.  I do have a few other outfit ideas in mind with it and hopefully i’ll be able to don those before the summer is out!

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!

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 🙂

Just Because

Last night I went off to East London to shoot some summer looks with John Lewis for their June blogger edit.  It was a lovely night spent with lovely ladies Becca, Hayley and Hannah and the John Lewis crew.  Our make-up was done by Lauren from Benefit and our hair was seriously salt sprayed and tongued for a beach look.  Although all my outfit photography is done on the streets I do enjoy doing the odd studio shoot from time to time.  I should get the pictures next week before I go off on holiday again so I’ll post those as soon as they come in to show you what I styled as my summer looks.

Boat Trip

On our last day we decided to book one of the excursions that the resort offered to us which was a 3hr catamaran ride to see wild whales and dolphins.  You won’t know this about me but at one point I was dead set on being a Marine Biologist and Whales and Dolphins were my life but I had never seen them in the wild.  I’ve got to say it was absolutely amazing when we saw them and if any of you ever have the chance to do a trip like this I would urge you not to pass it up!  It was the perfect end to our holiday despite the fact that I was sea sick for about 2 of the 3 hours we were on the boat, lol!  It was totally worth it though!  Before heading back to the mooring station the boat stopped at a small bay where you could jump off and swim in the ocean, I didn’t want to as I was on the verge on vomitsville but my other half was like an over excited child diving off the boat, climbing back on and diving again.  Bless his little cottons!  My sea sickness passed as soon as I stepped off the boat (what is the point?!) and we went to get some much needed lunch and then returned to the pool for a last minute tan top up.
