So it’s April, that means the weather should be getting better right? Yes, I’m living in the same hope as well, which is why I’ve decided that this week’s Friday Favourites is dedicated to my spring wishlist, which is very floral based, I’m going through a phase. I’ve put together a mixture of pieces, another cold shoulder top, I’m obsessed, statement to subtle florals, as well as a few neutral basics, to wear with those statement pieces, and a 90’s vibes denim jacket with lots of badges on. Basically, this is a what I want to be wearing this spring.
There’s only one thing I wish I’d been able to do more of in Kuala Lumpur and that’s shoot some fabulous outfit posts. I know what’s happened to me. The thing is I’ve learnt this year that what makes my style posts go easier is a great backdrop and there were so many great locations in this Malaysian capital. Sadly travelling alone meant no-one to capture my looks. I did try asking random strangers, even by targeting those with SLRs and it didn’t quite work out. I have lots of blurry and cropped pictures of me in great locations. Thankfully there
This year I hope you’ve notice a change in my style posts, it was one of my goals for 2015 to make this section feel more editorial, glossy, and inspirational – so I’ve been trying new things, finding great locations, as well as try and inject my personality over into the pictures, instead of being a nervous wreck. I have to be honest it is something I still find difficult, I still get nervous posing, I’m over critical in editing, lots of photos don’t make the cut, and I still need a confidence boost to press publish so you guys
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.

The scariest thing about summer dressing has to be that moment when it is too warm to wear tights, jeans, or your favourite tailored trousers, and you actually have to show the world your legs and the effects of months of winter has had on them, which in my case means super dry legs. For me, confidence comes from three areas, whether my hair is doing OK, is my outfit flattering, and the added pressure in the summer whether my legs look toned and fuzz-free, I used to be bothered about them being tanned but I’m really embracing my pasty ways and factor 50!
