My Style: Relaxing Vibes With James Jeans

My-Style-James-jeans-13

Sorry for the lack of blog posts this past week or so but I haven’t been too well, which sucks especially when you are in the midst of last-minute planning for a wedding, but it seems that my body decided, with a very public fainting episode that I needed to take it a little easier, and who am I to argue that.

But it seems that taking a back seat from Fashionista Barbie has made me miss my favourite doll so I thought I would ease back into blogging with this recent style post I snapped at Audley End House a few weekends ago when my Mum came to stay, plus I totally needed to share these fab James Jeans skinny jeans.

I love relaxing weekends visiting historical landmarks, I am kind of obsessed by architecture, but lately I can’t help but become consumed by the gardens at these stately homes when I visit in the hope that the gorgeous displays will magically appear in my own garden. Audley End is particularly pretty not only because of its Jacobean features, but also because it has such grand water features, impressive grounds, as well as some gorgeous floral displays. It is one of those places that literally just takes all the stress away. The only thing I think it could improve on is its cafe, it certainly wasn’t like visiting a National Trust property, but that just means that next time I come back it will be with a picnic basket stocked full of goodies.

As it was sunny but not crazy warm I decided to wear my new James Jeans ‘Twiggy’ skinnys, which when you see them off I even questioned whether I would squeeze myself into them, but the magic of these mid-to-high rise skinnys is that they have great stretch, and in this slate colour they really are rather forgiving. But what I really want to test out was the famous bum-lifting pocket tuck that James Jeans is known, which is probably why the likes of Kristen Stewart, Ashley Greene and Jessica Alba wear them, as they really do make you feel amazing, and hopefully makes my arse look hot!!!

As it was a causal day I decided to pair these beauties with a shirt/jumper combo, perfect for the weekend, and I really do love the pop of pink under this grey and black jumper, and they both worked with my uber-bright Nike trainers for wandering around the grounds and house.

What I love most about this outfit is that it is one of those looks that you instantly feel good in and that you can wear again, and again, and best of all it really doesn’t require planning or thinking – it is just comfortable, and so me.

I know people are saying that skinny jeans are on their way out, but I just think that is coming from people who haven’t discovered their perfect pair yet, and trust me there is a pair out there to suit everyone. I really do think that skinny jeans have a place in everyone’s wardrobe, but I have to be honest I can’t wait to dig out my flares again!!!

Have you tested out James Jeans’ famous bum-lifting pocket tuck?

My Style: Fitness Wear Doesn’t Have To Be Black

My-style-nike-and-puma

My sportswear is generally black, much like my everyday wardrobe, but with the sun shining it just didn’t really inspire me, so I thought what better way than to get myself out of my little exercise rut than to buy new workout gear with an added splash of pink!!!

I have to be honest I found taking this outfit post more daunting than the others, over the past year my confidence has increased, but wearing gym wear made me feel that extra bit sensitive to my many flaws. But looking at the results of the pop of colour in my look and those incredible Nike trainers against the graffiti wall I am pretty pleased with them.

My-style-sporty-nikeThe starting point for this look were those striking, can probably see from space, neon Nike Lady Flyknit Lunar1+ running shoes that I was kindly gifted from SportShoes.com, which if you are on the hunt for some bright trainers has literally ever colour and brand available.

Not only are they fun and colourful, they are also the most comfortable running shoes I have ever worn, I love that they are super light while still having a cushioning platform and the snug fit really made for a smooth run around my village, which is wearing I spotted that the cricket house has free graffiti walls for the youngsters to show off their creativity and I thought it was the perfect backdrop for this look.

For my workout clothes I normally go for Nike, especially for my trousers, I am not sure why but I trust their quality and they last a long time, and the Legend 2.0 range is my favourite, and these Nike capris are perfect for the summer.

For my tops I just like to be comfortable, but I do love Nike’s Dri-Fit pieces, and the pink vest top you can see underneath has a built-in bra, and is perfect for layering under this Puma crop top, which hides a multitude of sins!!!

What do you wear to workout in? Do you like to inspire your runs with a pop of colour?

My Style: Day Two At London Fashion Week

OOTD-LFW-Day2-dolls

Day two and I am already a little tired, yesterday was incredible I saw so many gorgeous collections and today was another early start and late finish.

I started with a Woolmark breakfast at the ME London, which is the new hotel opposite Somerset House that you might remember from my Warehouse press day post, it has the most incredible view that I couldn’t resist having my style piccies done there, and ended the day with Rihanna’s debut clothing collection for River Island.

With the long day, the feeling that I might be queuing a bit for Rihanna, in the end it was only 50 minutes late, and with the general running around, I went for my bright Nike trainers as they are super comfortable and work really well with a skater skirt.

As you know I like a statement t-shirt and a skater skirt and trainer combo deserves a good one and I have been saving my Zoe Karssen ‘Valley of the Dolls’ tee since I snapped it off The Outnet late last year. I kind of think this t-shirt was made for me, and like most people this fashion week monochrome looks have been all the rage, and I always think black and white works perfectly with bright pink accessories!!!

Sadly I took my style piccies so early, like 9am, I didn’t have time to get my make-up professionally done, I did rectify that later on in the day when I popped by the Handpicked Media suite and the lovely Bourjois team did me the exactly catwalk look they did for Zoe Jordan’s show yesterday. I just love the subtle cat-flick on my eyes and the pink lips.

My Style: Working My New Nike Kicks From Schuh

At the weekend it seems Cambridge was one of the few places to actually resemble summer, it was sunny, very sunny in fact, and actually warm, I even burnt a little, which was unexpected. I had friends staying for the weekend so we took in the sights of Cambridge, which meant a lot of walking, so I decided that I had to work my new Nike Delta high tops that I bought from Schuh.

This weekend was their first outing, I bought them about three weeks ago, but I had been worried that I wasn’t cool enough to pull them off, but once I had them on my feet I didn’t care they as they are so comfortable. I know everyone is about wedge trainers, which I love, but I just love that the classic high top shape.

I paired my beauties with their coral swoosh and laces with the casual vibe of my favourite navy cotton shirt dress from H&M, which for £7.99 is one of my go-to dresses at the weekend as it is so comfortable, not too tight, not too baggy, it’s perfect. I paired it with my rose belt that I bought months ago in the Dorothy Perkins sale, I love the pale blue against the navy and black and I love that it pops nicely against the pink.

I have a little scarf obsession lately, New Look seems to have a lot of cool designs and this zebra print is one of my favourites at the moment, I love the pale pink colour as it generally means I can get it to work with anything, while it still has the quirky vibe of the zebras.

Finishing off my look are my trusty CK shades, I love these beauties, plus my rather large, very bright Ice-Watch, and the tiniest bag I own my cross-body bag that I bought from Debenhams last year, it basically fits my Blackberry, purse and car keys and that’s it!!!

So what do you think – do you like my kicks?

My Style: Nike Delta high tops, £60 from Schuh; H&M dress; Primark cardigan and leggings; F*** Me I’m Famous Ice-Watch (c/o); Bag from Debenhams; CK sunglasses; and New Look zebra-print scarf.
