Touchdown Londoooooooon!  

I try my best to visit London as often as I can, however living up north and over 3 hours away has its down sides!  

Nevertheless I was in London not long ago and enjoyed my time there, managed to meet the beaut Niga Ghafur (yes internet friends are real) ... also not to mention I was there on the best 3 days, the weather was just perfect!  

Walking around Oxford Street, it was super busy and absolutely boiling. However no matter how warm it is, I always think it's important to carry a jacket around, we really can't predict this British weather.

Double denim was actually an unintentional one, I literally picked up the first jacket I saw and walked out the hotel room, it took me a while to realize, but I was pleased with myself because I don't think it looked too bad haha! 

This combo features a denim jacket by JALC and distressed denim trousers by ZARA, paired with a simple white tee and black heeled boots from Topshop!

Oversized fits are my favourite, as far as wearing fitted clothes goes ... skinny jeans is the closet I get! 

I recently fell in love with Pull & Bear, although I'd heard of them before I never really checked them out properly! Scrolling through their site, this sweatshirt caught my eye, it's so quirky and the quote on the back keeps me motivated, I love it.

Also from Pull & Bear was the white pumps with a caramel sole, I've been after a pair of shoes like these, they're such a comfortable fit! I decided to pair this with trousers from New Look Men's. These are such a such good quality, just at £10, my size and the last on the sale rack. Lucky me! 

You can shop my look below, hope you enjoy!

SO RAD

More collaborations, new locations. While the sun was out, walking around Nottingham with Alicia, we visited Cobden Chambers. With the coolest backdrops, this was the perfect location to shoot for the outfit I was wearing. 

I was overwhelmed when I was contacted by Rad, them asking to me to be a blogger ambassador, they also kindly sent me one of the coolest Bowie shirts! 

I paired the shirt with a custom distressed denim jacket from 'Just Another Lost Child' by 'Arthur Tumbare. JALC was found in 2014.

I live in a day and age where everything can change because of a click of a button. The internet controls our generation and slowly controlling and changing fashion.
Fashion in relation with the internet is now giving the lost and misunderstood children of our generation the chance to change the world and lives of millions.
— Arthur Tumbare

I finished the look with  black skinny jeans and DR martens, customizing with a leather clutch from Topshop and sunnies from River Island.

CASUAL WINTER

Long leather coats are the one, especially when it's vintage. Passed down from my aunt, this was a big hit in the 90's during her college days. The leather jacket is perfect with this outfit and a great winter piece! 

In this post I am extremely excited to be collaborating with two amazing brands, both of who I am a huge fan of, Schuh and Bellfield!

Wearing a chunky grey knitted jumper from Bellfied, I paired it with a long sleeve burgundy check shirt also from Bellfield. There were many different ways I could have styled this, for example, wearing the shirt under the jumper or even on top, however I wanted to keep this look super casual and not smarten it up too much!

Continuing to keep it simple, I matched the jumper and shirt with regular black skinny jeans from New Look and a long brown leather coat.  To complete the look I finished with the most gorgeous black Chelsea boots from Schuh. 

I have literally been after pointy shiny Chelsea boots for so long, and now I finally have them thanks to Schuh! This was a #GiftingSorted Christmas present from them, putting the biggest smile on my face; the PR's are the sweetest people ever!

Be sure to check out Bellfied at http://www.bellfieldclothing.com/ where they have a range of beautiful winter knits and coats. You can also follow them at @bellfieldclo to keep up with any new updates.

Thank you
