My Style: Monochrome With A Pop Of Colour

My style Monochrome 1 My Style: Monochrome With A Pop Of Colour %tag

I do love wearing black and white, where it is as block colours or a vibrant print, I just think monochrome is chic and elegant and perfect to wear to meetings followed by cocktails and dinner with friends. I wore this look a few weeks ago to an Echo Falls event where I interviewed Holly Fulton, I just thought it was the perfect summer evening look, monochrome with a pop of colour with my fab Rebecca Minkoff bag.

The outfit started with this fab skirt, which no one could believe was Primark. I love a full skirt and this pleated beauty with a sexy split is a great day-to-evening piece and I think it went perfectly with this black River Island shirt with its sheer paneling.

The final touches were my accessories, the black sandals from Clarks are so comfortable that they are great for meeting hopping as well as socialising, and they are fast becoming my favourite black shoe because they literally go with anything. I just adore block heels and I love the suede and patent mixed with the retro styling of the ankle strap, oh and did I mention they are uber-comfy as they have cushion layer.

I was going to pair my look with a black handbag, but because the sun was shining, this yellow beauty caught my eye in my room and I just had to go with a pop of colour. I really feel it enhances the floral print on the skirt, as well as make the monochrome more vibrant.

Are you a fan of adding a pop of colour to your monochrome looks?

My Style: Glorious Goodwood & The Perfect Summer Maxi

Jim Goodwood my style 2 My Style: Glorious Goodwood & The Perfect Summer Maxi %tag

Weekends are precious, I love spending time with my fiancé as well as my close friends, and I love it even more when it is filled with gorgeous sunshine, great food and lots of laughs. Last weekend we went to visit Jim & Sarah, two of our closest friends, to celebrate Jim’s birthday as well as get giddy about the wedding as they are both coming with us to New York and with less than 100 days to go I am pretty excited.

I always love going down to see them both in Chichester, it is always fun and relaxing, and this weekend was made even more perfect with a visit to Goodwood. Not only can you watch planes taking off and cars whizzing around the track, but you can also enjoy them both while eating brunch at the Aero Club Café. The sunshine didn’t hurt either, I think I could have sat outside watching all the planes taking off, landing and doing tricks all day. I really do love discovering secret brunch spots and I can’t wait to go back.

After brunch we wandered around the rest of Goodwood, checking out the motor circuit, watching some drifting, and I couldn’t help but snap away at the lovely retro touches around the grounds including the racing green telephone box and vintage cars. It also made the perfect spot to showcase my new maxi dress from Gap, which is not only flattering but super comfortable. I bought this beauty for my honeymoon but I couldn’t resist giving it a test drive as we are having such glorious weather at the moment.

I have trouble finding flattering maxi dresses, they are either sack-like or too tight, what I love about this Gap beauty is that the elasticised waist creates a blousy top look that really does nip in the silhouette of the dress. Plus I also love anything that I can just throw on, will work with flats, heels and trainers, and is comfortable to wander around in the sunshine.

Have you discovered your perfect summer maxi dress?

My Style: Festival-Inspired Floral Love Affair

My Style Festival gap 2 My Style: Festival Inspired Floral Love Affair %tag

What is your go-to festival look?

Mine would probably be skinny jeans/denim shorts, a vintage rock tee, a bold floral kimono, some wellies and a few statement pieces of jewellery that I would probably have picked up from Primark. For this season, with the weather being a little warmer, I thought I would channel my girlie side and opt for a fun and flirty dress, pops of colour, of course sensible but cool footwear, and a statement headpiece, well it wouldn’t be a festival without wearing something silly now would it.

What I love about this look, other than how happy this tropical print shirtdress makes me from Gap, even when it starts to rain, has to be how comfortable I am not wearing wellington boots. I have a problem with not being able to find wellies that fit me well, they are always too big around the ankle, I seem to not be able to walk properly and they make my feet ache, maybe it is because I haven’t invested in quality, but I was so pleased to try out Sorel’s Slimshortie style. They are kind of part cowboy, part biker, with their full-grain waterproof leather they can take on any challenges of a festival, plus they will look great in winter as well.

To tie my boots into my look I added a tan belt, which really nips in this cute dress, and then to add a summer pop I went for this fun pompom headpiece from Asos, which is currently in the sale so snap it up quick, I just thought it looked perfect with my new specs from Kite, the yellow Shore Projects watch and my Rebecca Minkoff bag.

What do you think – would you wear this to a festival? Also have you tried out Sorel’s Slimshortie boots?

Technology: Acer Iconia A1

Acer iconia a1 bag Copy Technology: Acer Iconia A1 %tag
I have always been a lover of technology and gadgets and it seems over the years I have been collecting tablets and laptops in all different sizes. I have the iPad that seems to be a great size for watching movies, I then have the Microsoft Surface which is perfect for working wherever you are with the handy keyboard, and now it seems I have found a tablet that is perfect to place in any handbag including my new Rebecca Minkoff beauty that has been my weekend bag.

I find that I blog in all sorts of places, whether in my office, on the sofa while watching a film, or out-and-about at a cafe, but my larger tablets sometimes don’t fit into my go-to handbag and that is where this Acer Iconia A1 has been perfect.

It is easy to use as it runs on the Android system, the same as my HTC One, which means that all the apps I use on my smartphone are easier to use on the 7.9″ screen – especially the WordPress and photo-editing apps such as Snapseed and VSCO Cam that I use. Plus it is great to use with Skype as it is hand-sized so easy to hold and it is lightweight. It also comes with 16GB memory, which is generally plenty, but it also has a microSD slot if you want to add more or in my case want access to large photos to add to the blog.

Like with my Android smartphone the Acer tablet is easy to organise all my apps, I am kind of a little OCD on keeping everything clean, so it is great you can create groups of apps – so I have all my social media favourites together and my photograph app, as well as information apps and my reading material. Going through all my favourite blogs on Feebly is so much nicer than on my mobile.

I have only been using the device for less than a week but this budget tablet really is great value for money. Granted it doesn’t feel as good as the iPad, the plastic casing feels a little breakable but I always think a cover is the best way to go, and it might not be as fast, but this little beauty did really well putting this blog post together!!!

Have you try out the Acer Iconia A1? Would love to hear your thoughts on this budget tablet.

Also as it is Christmas, I thought it would be fun to dress up my Acer tablet with a live wallpaper that I picked up for free in the Google Play store – come on who doesn’t want a Christmas countdown as their background? Plus that 3D Christmas tree is so pretty!!!

My Style: Denim Skirt, Sunshine, and Fountains

my style denim skirt 12 My Style: Denim Skirt, Sunshine, and Fountains %tag

Last week when I was in London having a spot of afternoon tea, I stopped by Somerset House, because why the hell not really, but I realised while walking around and of course getting snapped by Sherin that I rarely see the fountains as the square is normally taken over by the London Fashion Week tent.

It was weird just admiring the gorgeous architecture, dancing in-between the fountain jets, and generally seeing the square without the hoards of fashionistas, and best of all not cursing the cobbles when rushing off to a show. To show how pretty Somerset House is in the sun I did a 360 Instagram video, if you want to check it out head on over to my Instagram feed.

As we seem to be seeing a little sun lately I have been trying to embrace my summer wardrobe, I know that my last style post was also a denim skirt, but that one was a pencil skirt and this cutie is a flared one from Topshop’s tall collection.

Granted only subtle differences but I love that this flared skirt can literally just be thrown on with nearly anything. I paired mine with a lace detailing black top from H&M, tribal StylistPick flats that I picked up in their sale last summer, and added a pop of colour with one of my favourite bags by Rebecca Minkoff.

My Style: Denim & Stripes With Added Arm Candy

My style denim and stripes  My Style: Denim & Stripes With Added Arm Candy %tag

This week has been kind of quiet – with the Bank Holiday I haven’t been into London much, instead I have been baking up a storm for the Great River Bake Off *more to come on this*, but on Thursday night I did venture into the snow storm, I know I thought April was all about the rain showers but apparently Thursday was the coldest April day in Blighty for the past 50 years – seriously crazy weather.

The occasion was catching up with my good friend and fellow blogger Sherin from HiFashion and also head over to the Kipling x Helena Christensen party at Beach Blanket Babylon – I had planned to wear a new dress I have been dying to wear, but the weather had other ideas so I decided to work my mini flares with a stripy shirt, a classic but an easy style to throw on.

I wasn’t going to do a style post, mainly because I like to take my shots outside and I wasn’t willing to take my coat off in the freezing conditions, but I actually quite liked the moody lighting at Beach Blanket Babylon that I decided what the hell as I really like this look.

For me this outfit was made fun by my jewellery, which I seem to be obsessed with off late, I just find it the best way to jazz up an outfit or brighten up my mood. This week when mooching around New Look, like you do, I came across this adorable black and white panda watch, I instantly fell in love with it and at £9.99 this watch is the perfect addition to any arm candy party!!!

As I don’t like to mix my metals, I teamed my watch with some of my favourite pieces of silver jewellery – my moo cow necklace that my mum bought me a few years back from Christmas, I literally wear this necklace to death it is so cute, my new ring from & Other Stories, I just love how simple it is, and no jewellery look is complete without a stack of bracelets – I went for these ornate ones, also from New Look. I do love to jingle.

Do you love to jazz up an outfit with your jewellery?

My Style: Cats & Dogs Without The Rain

my style kitty jumper 1 My Style: Cats & Dogs Without The Rain %tag

While visiting Columbia Road it seemed rude not to snap my outfit, but instead of a flower stall backdrop I decided that this beautiful floral mosaic wall that was on one of the side streets was much prettier.

It was milder last week than it is now so I was fine to wear this look without a huge winter jacket. I love skater skirts, they are just easy to wear, comfortable, and look great with a statement knit, a blazer jacket and biker boots, which to me equals weekend staple!!!

I know that I have been going crazy on the animal jumpers, I promise this will be the last one, as even though it is pretty it malted worse than my real cats, which is why no close up as the grey furry wool is all over my blazer.

To add a bit of warmth I paired my look with my dalmatian print scarf from New Look, which was a complete bargain at £7.99, and the cobalt colour meant I could get my trusty Rebecca Minkoff MAB bag out of storage – oh how I have missed this bag!!!

What are your go-to weekend staples?
