3 Summer Denim Looks With Caravelle NY

3 Summer Denim Looks With Caravelle NY

Yeah to the recent warm weather, it finally feels like summer, so of course I rushed over to spend the weekend by the sea in Aldeburgh, a pretty seaside town in Sussex. As the weather was so lovely and the setting so beautiful, I thought it would be a cool idea to do a summer lookbook editorial focusing on denim, you know me I love a bit of denim, as well as showcase a few current trends I’m loving, off-the-shoulder and fun lace tops, as well as present my favourite pieces from the Caravelle New York spring/summer 2015 collection. 

There are three looks: denim shorts, a fun and flirty denim skirt, as well as my trusty light blue skinnies that I seem to always wear during the warmer months, teamed with a few new favourites.

Shopping: The Chloé Look For Less

Shopping: The Chloé Look For Less

There are lots of things I’m lusting for summer, lace-up gladiator sandals, crochet detailed dresses, contrasting candy-coloured arm candy, as well as retro-inspired denim midi’s, floaty tops with lace-up details, suede coats, lace panelled tops and floaty maxi dresses, you’ve guessed it, I’m obsessing over everything Chloé.

There is something about Chloé that just makes me swoon, want to skip out on my mortgage payment and blow my wages on designer gear. I like other designer labels, I even love some, but I don’t lust over them as much as I do Chloé. I was obsessed during Phoebe Philo’s reign and it seems my love is growing deeper now that Clare Waight Keller is at the helm, her retro-inspired bohemian spirit is infectious. I can’t be the only one wanting to be a Chloé girl, can I?

There is one small snag, OK not so small, the designer price tag associated with everything Chloé, we are taking around £1,000 for the gorgeous Chloé Drew bag, which is right at the top of my wishlist, and even a silk crepe tank is going to set you back around £400, so if like me your bank manager wouldn’t be happy if you skipped out on your bills I’ve put together some great alternatives on the highstreet – so you too can get the Chloé look for less.

Karen Millen AW15 – 5 Things To Get Excited About

Karen Millen AW15 – 5 Things To Get Excited About

I always have a huge debate with myself about featuring press previews on my blog, do you guys want to see something that you can’t buy for 6 months, and it really comes down to how much I love the collection, and after attending Karen Millen’s autumn/winter 2015 preview, which was very much like a presentation you would see at London Fashion Week, and loving everything, I thought that you guys would love to see what’s coming, as who doesn’t like to make wishlists ahead of a new season dropping into stores. 

Based around the concept ‘Desirability, Confidence and Ease’, the AW15 collection has a touch of elegant bohemian about it, with a nod to the 1970s featuring shearling, gorgeous tailoring in a camel hue, vintage print dresses, pleated skirts, and fringed bags. There is something about Karen Millen, it is my place to pick up quality tailored pieces, statement eveningwear, and dreamy knits, but this collection really blew my mind, I love the modern autumnal palette mixing traditional shades likes deep burgundy, red, black and royal blue, with the warm soft toffee and caramel hues and winter whites, as well as the gorgeous feminine silhouettes and the way it revolves around effortless style.

Instead of just bombarding you with images of the presentation I thought I would pick out the five key things I’m getting excited about from the Karen Millen AW15 collection:

Fashion Library: Map My Style by Dom & Ink

Fashion Library: Map My Style by Dom & Ink

Anything that combines fashion and colouring in with a journal vibe grabs my attention, which is why ‘Map My Style’ is my latest book addiction. I do love it when I’ve got an outlet for my doodles, and more so when they revolve around fashion!

By illustrator, Dom & Ink, I love that ‘Map My Style’ is part fashion journal, there are pages to share your love from bloggers to follow, favourite colour, as well as room to share fashion advice, your style crushes, and the best places to shop to find everything from denim and dresses to workwear and shoes.

Then there are pages that act like a style guide with advice on how to pull off the oversized look, a denim style sheet so you will never get confused between super skinny and boyfriend, plus you get to colour them all in, and there’s even tips on how to pick up a bargain at a charity shop. It really is much more than just fashion doodles.Map-My-Style-Book-10
