My Style: Pretty Floral Skirt

My-style-floral-skirt-6

No matter how hot is out there, even the hottest day of the year so far, it seems that I still can’t help wearing black and chunky boots, it seems that my wardrobe and style is all about winter. Don’t get me wrong I have pretty dresses in summer hues, I get them out on occasions, it is just I prefer black. So my compromise, with myself to wear more summery clothes, is this adorable dark floral skirt.

I don’t have many floral prints in my wardrobe but this one appealed due to the darker vibe as well as the neon pink kick, plus it is in my favourite flattering skater skirt silhouette. I was going to pair this Primark beauty with a neon pink boyfriend T-shirt, but I just couldn’t find it, but my trusty black one was easy to find, I have like 10 of them!!!

But you know what, I think the print and bare legs make this look summery enough, I hope, but I do think a brighter or even white top would have made it pop even more in the sunshine. I think the extra sparkle of this gorgeous Next necklace and Citizen Eco-Drive watch helps though – they both really catch the light perfectly.

Are you a lover of wearing black even on the hottest of days?

My Style: Living In A Barbie World

Barbie-Primrose-Hill-6

I spend a lot of time living in a Barbie world, I write my blog in front of around 30 of my favourite dolls crammed into my office, but for some reason other than the odd piece of Barbie jewellery I have never worn a piece of doll loving attire on here, well that is until now!!!

I spied this beauty of a top in Primark, I instantly fell in love with it not just for the Barbie overload but also the cool sporty arms, kind of makes me think if Barbie was to have her own baseball team this is what she would wear. This top is also a great transitional piece for those less than sunny days, as the elbow-length sleeves make it perfect for keeping the chill off. As the top is doing all the talking I decided to keep the rest of my look quite plain and this black skirt from New Look is just perfect for my casual look.

I also think my Barbie look went perfectly with the pink coloured houses of Primrose Hill. Not an area of London I have spent that much time in, not sure why as I was mesmerised by the rows and rows of pastel coloured town houses, such a cute area and the perfect location for The Apartment‘s spring break. There was a fun, chilled out schedule of yoga, a blow dry masterclass and movie marathons, as well as gorgeous nibbles from Aubaine. Unlike fashion week when it is a little crazy it was nice to catch up with friends and enjoy just lounging about, plus I also got to get the fab guys at Blow Ltd to do my hair, I really do think I am a little addicted to their Beach blow dry.

As well as debut my first Barbie-adorned piece of clothing I also wore my new Citizen Eco-Drive watch for the first time. My watch collection has grown over the years, I blame my fiancé he loves watches, but this Swarovski crystallised beauty has to be one of my favourites. I have lots of watches that are either stylish or functional, not many do both, but the Eco-Drive really does with its silver accents, sparkle, and white dial, teamed with day, date and 12/24 hour time displayed in three sub dials. Normally when a watch has so much going on it isn’t as feminine or glamorous, but I think you have to agree this is one gorgeous watch. Best of all, apart from it being so comfortable to wear, I also love that it doesn’t need a battery, this little cutie harnesses the power of light. I have to be honest I am seriously impressed and I think I have worn it nearly every day since it arrived.

My Style: The Perfect Pink Jumper From Odd Molly

My-style-Odd-Molly-6

The sun is shining so of course I need to get my Barbie pink on!!! OK, so this look seems like I am covered up for winter, the gorgeous Odd Molly cable knit definitely photographs heavier than it is, but when the weather is nice, bright, but still a little chilly I love wearing knitted jumpers and jeans at the weekend – and for me spring sunshine is all about those moments when you can leave the house without a coat!!!

I was introduced to Odd Molly at an event last year, I have to be honest I hadn’t heard of the Scandinavian fashion brand before, but I have really fallen in love with its contemporary boho vibe, especially the jumpers and the smock-style dresses, it really is a label all about comfort, which I love.

This coral pink Corset Sweater really caught my eye, not only for the great colour, but for the details – the front is cute with its cable knit but this beauty is all about the lace knitted tie-string to the back. It adds something a little different and it definitely makes it summer ready.

Embracing the sun and the brighter outlook with this outfit I went for my trusty Ida by Donna Ida jeans but in the ice wash, rather than my go-to dark vintage hue. I worry wearing such a light colour of denim normally, I don’t have the smallest of thighs, but there is something about Donna Ida that just makes you feel and look great.

Finishing up my look are a few fun pieces of jewellery, first up is my Flamingo adorned Anna Lou of London enamel bangle, perfect when worn with a three-quarter sleeve jumper as this beauty really needs to be shown off. Then I have my beautiful butterfly necklace from Swarovski, I just love how delicate it is, and the colours really work with this jumper.

Are you a fan of a bright jumper when embracing the sun?

My Style: LFW Day 4 – Matching My Samsung Note 3 To My Bag

LFW-Day-4-Outfit-7

This fashion week I have had a new toy, the Samsung Note 3, a smartphone and a tablet all rolled into one, or as the geeks call it a phablet. On paper you think it is going to be too big, as the screen has a 5.7” display – but it is this screen that really makes it perfect for taking pictures, answering emails, as well as doing a bit of blogging on the go. Plus it did feel good to have all my apps back after using a Windows 8.1 mobile for the past few months.

When Carphone Warehouse gifted me the gorgeous red version I was chuffed, not because I didn’t really like the white and rose gold, black or plain white versions, but because this red beauty really makes a statement, especially with its leather-effect back, which really helps with grip. Plus it really does look perfect alongside the gorgeous Russell & Bromley Gilt Edge handbag that I am finding hard to let go of.

I always love having a bright coloured mobile or case, as well as accessories as my wardrobe is generally black, navy blue or dark denim, and these red accessories really work well against this black leather skirt and silky black and grey top that I wore on day four of London Fashion Week.

Am I the only crazy one that accessories my phone to my outfit and my handbag??? Probably – but this Samsung Note 3 really did look at home with the Russell & Bromley beauty.

Also big shout out to Alex for these snaps in Hyde Park in between shows and chilling out at The Apartment, it was fun being photobombed by pigeons and squirrels!!!

My Style: Day 3 At London Fashion Week

LFW-Day-3-Outfit

The weather this London Fashion Week has sucked, it has really thrown me off my outfit picking game, and has made me hate each and every look I have worn for a while. I think it is the fact that you have to rush to get the shot and the fact that the weather is making everyone so miserable – but I really wanted to share this amazing midi skater dress from ASOS.

Wearing this dress felt amazing, super flattering and was a great colour, I love navy, and it is a great length – plus at £42 is it also a great price – I will be wearing this beauty a lot. But for some reason it didn’t photograph as well as it felt, which is probably down to my poor posture and my current uncomfortableness in front of the camera than the dress.

To brighten up the dress I paired with my LFW Russell & Bromley bag – the Gilt Edge, as well as a cute pink watch from Fossil and some silver jewellery.

Nothing too showy, just simple and comfortable for a day of shows.

AW13 Preview: Primark Has The Trends Covered

AW13-primark-1

Each season Primark seems to be developing its offering, it is a high street store that is no longer just for picking up basics such as boyfriends tees, or a statement piece of jewellery for a night out – this is a shop that is has really upped its game to bring shoppers the latest trends at affordable prices.

For most, me included, trends can be a little scary, they are mostly out of people’s comfort zones and you are never sure how long they are going to last. What I love about Primark is that it is a place where you can test out a trend, save a few bob along the way, while still looking good.

For autumn/winter 2013 there are several key trends to look out for – from the pink invasion to 90’s grunge, sporty and minimal, as well as punk. Some are easier than others, for instant adding a touch of pink to your wardrobe is probably the easiest to wear, and I love that Primark has a lovely selection from sugary hues to vibrant bold pinks, so whether you want to make a statement in a pink coat, or add a touch of pink with a gorgeous jumper or a tailored pair of trousers – there will be a lot of options.

Minimal and sporty is also a trend that’s easy to master, you will probably already have a lot of options in your wardrobe as it is a continuation from a spring/summer trend. In Primark you will find pieces with an elegant edge – from block coloured dresses, to coats with contrasting panels, as well as some cute sparkly trainers.

One of my favourite trends for autumn/winter has to be the return of the 90’s grunge, think lots of tartan, crackled leather, lace up boots, and statement jewellery.

Whether you are updating your wardrobe with some key staples or adding a few statement pieces – trust me pop into Primark you may be surprised with what you come out with!!!

What are you thoughts on Primark’s autumn/winter 2013 collection?

My Style: Summer Loving In Wimpole Estate

my-style-wimpole-hall-11One of my happy places, yes I have a happy place, has to be the Wimpole Estate near where I live, it is a gorgeous National Trust property in Cambridgeshire that has an impressive mansion, stunning gardens and grounds, and is home to some of the most adorable cows ever!!!

For me this is a place to relax, reflect, and generally get away. There is so much to do – I regularly come to read a book under a tree, enjoy a picnic, visit the farm, or just admire the stunning floral displays in the gardens, and when I am filling extra energetic I take in one of their many walks – this place is as beautiful in summer as it is when covered in snow.

I always seem to find something new to capture with my camera, whether a pretty flower, a cute cow, the incredible scenery, or the estates ginger cat. If only the place had free WiFi across the grounds as I think I would become a permanent resident throughout the summer.

Last weekend, when the weather was a little cooler, I decided to pop by to visit the gardens and take some summer snaps – basically I wanted to pose in front of a big mansion, see a few cows and get some flower inspiration for my own garden.

The greyish skies suggest that it wasn’t that warm but it was such a muggy day that I wore my loose Jaeger Boutique dress that I bought in the sale last year, which is perfect for dressing up with heels or like here with simple flats that I picked up in Primark. As I can’t seem to go anywhere, not even for a walk, without jewellery I paired my look with my new MyFlashTrash bracelets that I was gifted by River Island and my statement rose necklace from Angelica London.

It was such a fun afternoon and I hope it comes across in these piccies as for the first time in a while I actually didn’t hate what I saw – here’s hoping that my confidence is on its way back up!!!

So what do you think of this summery look – are you a fan of Jaeger Boutique? Also let me know what your happy place is and if you have visited Wimpole.
