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!

ASOS X NIKE CORTEZ | VOGUEWONDERS

I'm super excited to be featuring my first ever collaboration with ASOS on the blog. Since starting the blog two years ago, I never would have imagined working with such a huge and highly respected brand. I'm so grateful! 

In a new campaign, i was lucky enough to be selected for the ASOS X NIKE Cortez project in which I was gifted with the coolest old school Nike trainers! I styled them with a Puma sweatshirt, regular black skinny jeans and a mandarin collar shirt by La Moda, from ASOS. 

Thank you to everyone who has supported the blog so far. It means a lot!

Hey guys, It has been a while since I blogged an outfit post, however I'm back! In a new collaboration with Bellfied I was sent the most comfiest grey Leighton joggers, the fabric on these are so soft, they would make great lounge wear! 

in terms of styling, I thought I'd challenge this and style the item up smart. I paired the joggers with a black twill shirt from Topman and a men's oversized vintage blazer by Tommy Hilfiger from We Are Cow. Keeping the look simple i matched the outfit with pastel beige shoes from ZARA and a leather bag from Topshop. This is literally a full mans outfit, minus the shoes and clutch...who says you can't make menswear look feminine?

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. 

To purchase the Dare Black Chelsea boots visit http://www.schuh.co.uk/womens/schuh-dare-black-boots/1438087080/ - these boots are to die for, it's a purchase you will not regret. Promise

BOLD | LF MARKEY COLLABORATION

 

It has been a good few weeks since my last post! I have been incredibly busy settling into uni and exploring a whole new city. Checking my emails earlier this week, I was really excited to see an email LF Markey. I absolutely love this brand and what they do; their sense of creativity is shown in all their garments. 

If you haven't already heard of the brand I'm 100% sure you've probably unknowingly come across them! LF Markey is a fashion label that makes beautiful clothes for practical women. Their clothing is bold, detailed and very simple. They are currently stocked in the Goodhood Store in Shoreditch, London and the designer floor at Urban Outfitters.

In this look I paired the LF Markey Alexi Bomber jacket with a velvet detailed sweatshirt from Mango. Keeping the look bold I wore that with regular black skinny jeans from Primark and black brogues from Topshop. To finish the look I carried a small backpack I bought from a vintage store in Leeds a few years ago.

What I love about this bomber jacket is how quirky and different it is. It has its own look with mixed fabrics consisting of a creamy wool body, denim pockets and black furry Sherpa sleeves. Check out LF Markey at http://lfmarkey.com/ or even purchase the Alexi Bomber at http://lfmarkey.com/products/alexi-bomber-jacket

SPLASH OF COLOUR

I'm so excited to be collaborating with my favs, Whistle Blower clothing. I have been following their brand for a while now and I'm a huge fan of what they do

To be honest I'm not a person that usually goes for bright colours, but the melon short sleeve mesh jumper from Whistle Blower's AW15' collection is perfect for the upcoming season. It's stylish, warm, comfortable and very different. This can be styled however you want. I chose to wear a collarless shirt from ASOS underneath the jumper adding a white effect; I paired this with black baggy pants from ZARA and white Moorgate brogues from ASOS. Finally to accessorise I carried a white satchel with black detail from Topshop.

This look really didn't need further accessories or additions. The jumper itself is a statement piece. I also wanted to keep the colour palette very simple (White, yellow and black) as I didn't want anything to look too over the top.

What I love about the jumper is that the quality is absolutely amazing! Like it's not a typical normal jumper, it's a lot more than that. It feels so rich and good. You can tell the fabric is long lasting & the jumper won't wear out easily

So why not grab it now as it has just reduced from £45 to £15! There's a huge sale on at the moment, go check it out at  http://www.whistleblowerclothing.co.uk/shop/ and shop their new collection which includes the melon short sleeve jumper available in grey & a range of beautiful bomber jackets & tee's.

Have a lovely week!
