My Style: Feeling Blue But So In Love

OOTD Blue and in Love My Style: Feeling Blue But So In Love %tag

With the recent cold snap I feel like I have been wearing the same outfit, generally jeans, more often than not my biker boots, and nearly always a very warm jumper – today’s look isn’t that dissimilar to be honest but I decided to mix it up with a bright blue jacket I found hanging on the coat hooks by the door.

Don’t worry it is my jacket, just one that sadly has been forgotten about this winter, and I am not sure why as I love the colour and the fit. On a cold day like today it really did brighten my mood.

Today’s look is very blue – blue coat, jeans, sweater, scarf, Cambridge Satchel bag and even the gloves that my Mum knitted me – everything is a different shade of blue, well except for that red t-shirt peeking through underneath the sweater, my gold jewellery and black boots.

To balance out the blue feeling I decided to go for a soppy love vibe with my Zoe Karssen LOVE jumper that I picked up off The Outnet, I just love her printed slogans, I seem to be building a collection of her t-shirts, but this sweater is laid-back lux to perfection – super comfortable, so warm and totally me!!!

Finishing up my look are my cute new love heart initial bracelets and my love ring that I picked up at the Claire’s gifting suite at The Apartment during London Fashion Week.

My Style: Day Three At London Fashion Week

OOTD LFW Day3 gap My Style: Day Three At London Fashion Week %tag

Day three and the sun has been shining all day, granted still not that warm, but I don’t mind shivering when it is bright. Once again, another look, another shade of pink – so we’ve had a bright pink jumper, bright pink accessories and today I went for my new Gap blazer which I picked up in the sale last weekend.

Considering a blazer is a wardrobe staple I only seem to have two very ill-fitted ones so I thought it was time to invest for fashion week as you can dress an outfit up or down with one and lots of my friends recommended Gap. When I saw this bright pink beauty I couldn’t resist, even more so when it was £20 off – serious bargain that I am sure to wear all-year round.

As the trim of the blazer is a dark grey I thought it would make the bright pink stand out even more if the rest of my outfit was charcoal grey and black – and I think this is one of my favourite looks for a while.

As you know if you follow me on Twitter I love jeans but like most people I struggle to find styles that fit and look flattering and a number of my followers answered my pleas for help and suggested Uniqlo, a shop I love for t-shirts but have never tried for denim, but I have seriously been missing out.

These dark grey beauties are from the super soft, super stretchy skinny range, and I can assure you they are exactly that, they are just so flattering and for a long time putting skinny jeans on didn’t make me feel instantly fat. Plus they are super long, I have them turned up as wearing with boots today, but in the summer I will actually be able to wear jeans with flats and not feel like I am showing half my leg off!!!

Finishing off my look is my trusty Osprey London bag, this is so perfect for fashion week – classic colour, classic design and fits everything from my iPad, tickets, make-up, chocolate, phone, diary, notepad, pens, etc, etc, in, as well as my Ice-Watch, which sadly has the wrong date on it, my Topshop ankle boots that I am literally wearing to death, and a new statement necklace from New Look.

My Style: Day Two At London Fashion Week

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.

Snow, Snow, Snow: My Winter Wonderland

I love snow, I love wrapping up warm, and I love a winter wonderland postcard scene, so when the snow finally fell on my village today I couldn’t resist getting my new Superdry bobble hat on and heading out for a very chilly, but fun winter walk.

Is there anything more perfect than walking in the snow??? I love the crunch underfoot, the sliding and hoping I don’t fall over, and call me crazy but I also love the chill against my face. Granted I can see that the snow can be disruptive and makes commuting a pain – but come on it is so pretty!!!

So, what did you do in the snow today?

My Style: She Wolf…A-Ooh!!!

OOTD wolfy My Style: She Wolf...A Ooh!!! %tagIf I had to say what my favourite winter look was at the moment it would have to be a statement jumper, preferably with an animal on it, teamed with skinny jeans, biker boots and lashings of arm candy – super cosy, super comfortable, with added sparkle, that is perfect for combating the winter chill.

I have been wanting a wolf jumper for a while since I fell in love with a Markus Lupfer one, and then I spied this beauty in Warehouse and I couldn’t resist it. As well as being striking, I love the metallic eyes, I love the oversized fit of the jumper, which is perfect for laying over a t-shirt when it is cold, and it is super soft as well to enhance the cosy feel.

What is your favourite winter look at the moment?

Press Preview: Warehouse – Spring/Summer 2013

SS13 Warehouse 3 Press Preview: Warehouse   Spring/Summer 2013 %tagI know I haven't been doing reviews of every press day, I will share some of my favourite pieces in a round-up blog, but I just had to show you what Warehouse have coming for spring/summer 2013 as I was blown away.

First up the location, the Warehouse press team always seem to get the venue so right, last season was an amazing gallery where they put on an exhibition, and this time round they went for the rooftop bar of the new, not even opened, ME London hotel. This place is incredible, sharp, crisp white and mirrored interior, a glass canopied rooftop that let's you see straight down into reception, and then there is the amazing view – you can see the everything from the London Eye to Tower Bridge and with it being opposite Somerset House you are so close to that you can nearly see people skating. I reckon this is going to be one hot location for fashion week.

My eyes were quickly drawn to all the structured monochrome styles, which had intricate zip detailing, gorgeous silhouettes and textured pieces full of fringing, lace touches, beaded embellishments and studs – there were a lot of pieces that I am going to want to invest in next season.

My Style: Try The Trend – Tamaris ANTIshokk Glitter Riding Boots

http   makeagif.com media 10 29 2012 ynTDJW My Style: Try The Trend   Tamaris ANTIshokk Glitter Riding Boots %tagI am a boot whore, I have more pairs than I count, and I love finding new brands that as well as looking pretty are also actually good for my poor battered feet. This month I was asked to test out a pair of boots from Germany’s biggest shoe retailer, Tamaris, which as well as being glittery, so on trend with the equestrian buckles, they also have the brands exclusive ANTIshokk technology in-built. I know fancy right!

Of course I jumped at the chance – new boots that sparkle, absorb shock energy when you walk, and that can be worn all day without hurting no matter how much walking you do – had to be tested.

To be honest it did seem a little too good to be true, so I threw the biggest challenge a fashion journalist has – seeing how they cope during press day season, second only to fashion week for the amount of walking and standing around I do.

Granted I don’t understand why these boots are comfortable, I could give you some techie jargon such as they are constructed with pneumatic chambers and core stabilisers, which is all true, but what I do understand is that these beauties really took on my challenge and impressed me.

A typical press day schedule for me is around 5-6 events, an average of 10 mins walk between each venue across London, up and down the escalators at the tube, as well as the actually standing around catching up with my favourite PRs and looking around all the beautiful collections – as well as being fun it s also tiring and normally I do these busy days in flats, so it was nice to wear a bit of a heel and still feel great at the end of the day.

Like with all new shoes/boots you have to wear them in, at first they pinched a little on the toes, but the ache that normally comes in the heel and the sole never came, and I wore these boots three days in a row without any major problems, which is basically unheard of.

Tamaris my style 3 My Style: Try The Trend   Tamaris ANTIshokk Glitter Riding Boots %tag

I am not going to bore you with all my looks while I tested my new boots, but over the past month I have worn them with a maxi skirt, a kick flare dress, and teamed them on numerous occasions with jeans – I was surprised by how adaptable they were.

My favourite look had to be teamed with my skinny jeans, a funky colourful cardigan, and my winter-warmer duffel coat. Don’t you just think the colour of the beige and glitter works really well with blue? I also love how these boots gives a casual look an edge.

My Style: Lands’ End duffel coat (c/o); New Look cardigan, vest, bracelets and scarf; Warehouse jeans; Barbie necklace; Retro 54 glasses; and my Tamaris boots (c/o).

Fancy checking out the whole collection from Tamaris? Well why not head on over to their website, prices start at £29.99, which is pretty reasonable, my beauties are £69.99 but worth every penny.

What do you think – could you see yourself wearing these glittery beauties?
