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!

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.

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? 

Be sure to check out bellfied at http://www.bellfieldclothing.com/ & follow their Instagram: bellfieldclo to keep up with any updates, Shop the look below!

New season, new trends. It's time to wrap up! Autumn is probably one of my favourite seasons. Woolly knits, long coats, chelsea boots and scarf's. My layer game is going to be strong. 

I was extremely overwhelmed when I was contacted by Native Youth in regards to a collaboration. Not only have I been following their brand for ages, I absolutely what they do and how far they have come.

Going for a smart sophisticated AW15 look, I wore regular black high waisted skinny jeans from Primark, pairing it with black leather heeled boots from Topshop.  With that I matched an azetc(ish) print jumper from Native Youth. This particular print is the motif trend that always pops up at this time of year, you can't go wrong!

To finish the look I wore a longline brushed overcoat in camel, also from Native Youth. The length, fabric and fit on this coat is so on point, I love how it keeps me super warm! Keeping my accessories to a minimum, I simply added a Galliano silk print scarf and carried a leather clutch bag from Topshop.

Native Youth is available in select speciality stores and department stores in over 30 countries worldwide; including Japan, UK, USA and South Korea.

Get shopping for your AW wardrobe by checking out http://www.native-youth.com/ where you'll see a range of beautiful clothing from; long-line bombers, jacquard knits, high-necks and those perfect oversized garms!

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!
