Topshop Unique AW14

Tuesday, 25 February 2014

Oh Topshop, you get it right every time! You are a delight and a leader in British Fashion accessible to everyone (with their ordinary range to their Unique collection). These are my favourite looks from the Unique AW14 show at London Fashion Week last week. Which is your favourite? Are you a Toppers fan? (I know I am! Although that probably has something to do with me living in a small town where there isn't much else!).

My sister and I had the lovely opportunity to attend London Fashion Weekend, an event set up in the wake of London Fashion Week with a couple of catwalk shows, both trend and designer, in conjunction with The Outnet and the British Fashion Council. It was great fun, the weather behaved itself and I will definitely be going again next year! This is the outfit I wore - I bought this Zara coat the other day (sale! Lucky me!) and have fallen in love with it, expect to see a few more posts with this one. I wore my favourite Stuart Weitzman boots for the occasion as walking around London all day requires comfort!

Skinted or Minted

Tuesday, 18 February 2014

I promise I will get another outfit post up this but it's been raining every day off I've had! Getting a bit frustrated now!
Anyway, moving on, today's 'skinted or minted'/trend alert is the pointed ankle boot. I've found too that I absolutely love! These Tibi ones would love fantastic in my wardrobe don't you think? I should probably stick to the more affordable Boohoo version which are really nice (in fact, they'll be great going in to spring as they're 'cut out'!). Which is your favourite?

Spring Must-Have

Saturday, 15 February 2014

I know it's still pouring with rain and North America is suffering from the snow storm of the century but I can assure you Spring IS around the corner (I promise it's there, it's just hiding). So before we know it we'll be seeing our granddads in their favourite sandal/sock combo, pasty beach bodies in need of a good sunbathe and, of course, all the pastel colours we've been patiently waiting to wear without the threat of a rain shower.
So I present to you one of my favourite trends for the upcoming season - the baby blue biker jacket. River Island have done a fantastic collection of pastels this year and this has to be one of the best pieces! What do you think? Will you be taking on this trend this spring/summer?

Coat: Persunmall
Top: Topshop
Trousers: Old (Similar)
Shoes: Topshop

Finally the sun's come out and it's not raining! YAY! So I managed to get a few shots done today with this wonderful Persunmall coat that's been sitting in my wardrobe waiting for the rain to go away and these fab Celine-style Topshop slip-ons which I can absolutely see myself wearing well through the summer.

This is quite a simple look, I'm definitely more into this style at the moment, especially in winter when layering is key (I do feel for those in New York battling the snow storms today!). I'm still trying to decide what to wear to London Fashion Weekend next week, I'll probably leave it to the last minute as always!! Let me know if any of you are going!

BackPack Selection

Wednesday, 12 February 2014

I REALLY want a backpack for the summer! They look so chic because of the way they sort of just dangle there, with a similar effect to the way menswear just 'hangs'. They look great, they are incredibly practical and perfect if you want to layer up in winter, or want hands-free in summer for those evening walks, day-time hikes and trips out.
Do you like the backpack? How would you wear it?

Jumper: Topshop
Skirt: H&M (Similar)
Boots: Dune Similar, Similar
Sunglasses: Rayban

I've been meaning to post this outfit for ages but haven't gotten around to doing it until now. I also feel it's quite appropriate as New York Fashion Week AW14 is currently underway so this jumper represents where I would love to be right now. Have you seen the street style yet? It's amazing, I will have to do a post on it!

I hope you like this look,

Valentines Day Gift Ideas

Sunday, 9 February 2014

 photo ValentinesGifts_zpsbee0f87d.png
Ok ladies Valentines Day is around the corner and if you haven't already been dropping hints then now is the time! I'm sure no man would object to the idea of this beautiful lingerie or, if you're trying to set the mood, these Diptyque scented candles would certainly do the trick.
They're not really that romantic but I've fallen in love (see what I did there?!) with these really cute elephant cushions by The Rise and Fall and they worked really well with this collage wishlist!
Clockwise from left:

What are your plans for Valentines Day? I'm not big on the cutsie fluffy stuff so an evening of nice dinner and wine will suit me perfectly. 
Thanks for reading, outfit posts will be up tomorrow (weather permitting!).

New In: Stuart Weitzman

Thursday, 6 February 2014

So today I was going to do an outfit post, however, if you live in England you will know that it has been raining non-stop for the last couple of days and I have therefore been unable to shoot any outfits. I am trying to do better quality posts and therefore compromising and shooting indoors is not an option. Hopefully the weather will be better at the weekend!

So these are my new Stuart Weitzman 'Nouveau' heels I picked up this week! They are stunning, I love them, enough said. Do you like them? They come in several different colours too!

The Perfect Gift for Valentines Day

Wednesday, 5 February 2014

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle is my absolute favourite scent, something I wear every day without fail and always present in my stocking at Christmas from my wonderfully attentive boyfriend. I wouldn't dream of wearing anything else! So if you're looking for ideas on what to ask for this Valentines day, opt for this fruity, youthful perfume which always seems to last for ages (you don't need to apply very much for a strong, long lasting smell) and all day.

Hope you all have a wonderful Valentines Day! (Is it too early? Perhaps...but I don't care!).

These pictures were taken outside the Natural History Museum in London today (all be it a bit breezy!) wearing my new H&M pinstripe trousers. I've fallen in love with menswear, it's so easy to wear and you can wear flats and still feel chic! I hope you like today's look, it was ideal for trekking around London all day.

Zara Spring Summer 2014 Collection

Sunday, 2 February 2014

This is such an amazing collection I cannot wait till summer! I love how Zara's recent collections have paid homage to the androgynous campaigns released by Alexander Wang, 3.1 Philip Lim and Celine - they're a great way to get the catwalk look for (a lot) less. Sharp tailoring (check), sports lux (check), prints (check) - a perfect collection. What do you think?
