Statement Accessories

Good Morning all,

The sun has got his hat on and it’s time to get to know, the long awaited, Spring time. I’m looking forward to the day when you no longer have to wear a jacket but I think this may be a little way off. Below I’ve paired a black leather jacket, with skinny jeans and wedge trainers. As i’ve said in previous posts im not a huge fan of wearing black, and this is a large contradiction seen as im dressed head to toe in it but as you can see i’ve added a splash of colour with my new found, the yellow zara bag and Uniqulo scarf.

Find out below where I got this outfit from:

What’s black, red and white?

It’s me! Sorry, for the terrible non joke but hey expect many more of these to come in your xmas crackers. So it’s not long now until xmas and i’m sure most people are counting down the days.

I recently had my xmas party and wore the trousers seen below, and a peplum top from topshop, unfortunately i didn’t take any pictures but I had to share some pics of my trousers, my rather red trousers – so here is an everyday outfit.

As I said in my last post I’m not a huge fan of wearing black, but these certainly brighten things up. They were also a bargain at £10, from H&M.

Wish List!

Here is a little collection of some ‘must have items'( the pony goes without saying). Have you seen any other satchel as beautiful as this tasseled masterpiece from Mulberry! Its definitely a number one on my list! Another love I have is for white watches, although I was drooling  over the a Chanel one which is similar to the Toy, however, the prices are quite different with the Toy watch being much more affordable. Other must haves in my list are a pair of Kurt Geiger studded heels and chunky jewellery from Mango. What’s on your wish list?

Where the Wild Mulberrys are.

I have fallen in love with this fantastic campaign for Mulberry’s A/W collection. The enchanted forest and shying furry monsters just add to the whole charm of what autumn might bring. What a fantastic way to welcome us into the season which tends to make people long for sunshine and sand, now all we want is a designer handbag and a giant enchanted furball. Job welldone Mulberry!

Mad about Maxi

I’m dreaming of a little island off Georgia, where everyone is laid back and soaking up the sun. This is where i’d like to believe Maxi dresses were made for. A girl cannot feel any more both comfortable and glamorous in any other type of dress. So while the british weather continues to rain down, lets all find our happy place and dream about that sandy beach, blue sky and perfect dress.

My trip back to the states to see some of my favourite people was fantastic and of course I made time to do a little shopping. I was taken to an outlet of TIBI which I instantly fell in love with. Amy Smilovic designer of Tibi, is quite the inspiration, with no fashion background but a creative mind, she has successfully created her own fashion line featuring some beautiful pieces. Her collection features what I would call laid back glamour. where dress lines are straight, yet hang in just the right way to make any girl feel beautiful.

All About The Shorts

After a fantastic vacation to the States, I’m back and missing being able to throw on a pair of shorts everyday. Sunshine and friends- oh how I miss you all! Anyway, I thought I would share with you a pair of my favourite shorts from Zara. Unfortunately, i’m not sure how I feel about the high waisted shorts which are in this summer, I guess it all depends, I feel I would perhaps need to extend my legs a couple of inches to get away with them but here is a nice alternative:

‘Girl on fire’

Just a quick post, if you hadn’t realised by the title- yes i have become infatuated with the book ‘The Hunger Games’. Perhaps I’m a little late, but still I’m sure those who have read them will appreciate me relating everything in life to the books. A little ‘sad’ you may say, couldn’t agree more but here I go anyway…  After browsing farfetch.com I came across this rather unique and quirky looking dress and the first thing I thought of was- this would be the perfect dress for Katniss. What’s your thoughts?

Italian Style

I have been meaning to write this post for a long time! Recently I visited the beautiful region of Umbria, also known as the green heart of Italy. It was lovely and warm and a little bit rainy but that did not dampen our style. This was a business trip, but it wasn’t all work and no play. The event we attended is called Travel Bloggers Unite. A great weekend for travel bloggers from all over to exchange stories, meet people who work in the industry and learn a little more about the promotion of their blog. It turns out that travel and fashion have quite a cross over, I met quite a few fashionistas who were travelling and blogging in style. Check out these lovelies:
